Publisher's Summary

Before her Argeneau vampire family paranormal romance novels made her a New York Times best-selling superstar, Lynsay Sands did The Deed. Lynsay's witty, sexy, utterly fantastic debut romance transports the listener back to Medieval England to witness the outrageous trials and temptations of a good wife whose husband unfortunately dies before he can do...The Deed. The lady, left shockingly unprepared, finds herself promised to a handsome, landless knight, and misunderstandings, missteps, and (of course) passion ensue.

The first of her more than 30 historical romance novels and anthologies known for their wonderfully humorous edge, The Deed is a delightful treat for confirmed Sands fans as well as for listeners who appreciate the early novels of Julie Garwood.

This was such a cute love story. There was adventure, humor and romance. Lady Emma was so funny, I love how sweat and naive she is.

HUMOROUS WITH AREAS OF ANXIETY

First off Lynsay Sands has done it again it doesn't matter if it's The absolutely brilliant Argeneau Series or the Historical genre.

(There are areas where it's so comical you could just imagine how the scenario is interacted 😂 )

This is about Amaury de Aneford (the ba***rd son of a Lord) better yet the most sort after soldier all around England. And the virgin widow Lady Emmaline Eberhart, who had gone to King Richard to demand her husband of 2 years to do his bed sharing & what goes on. Well here is the first area you could be gobsmacked if you're thinking in today's scenario & not that of the way it was back in the Medieval era & on top of that having grown up without a mother figure to talk to her how the marital bed goes 😉
AND this is the start of their humorous life together but with having to watch their backs as they KEEP having episodes of Where they're getting jumped by a varied load of unscrupulous people.
I have a couple of negatives which is so rare of me to write for Lynsay's work, which I won't take it off my scoring, Some of the vocabulary is wrong for the era.
And the other was I'm sorry to say I found the way narrator Chloe Lynn said AMAURY it sounded at times like ANN-MARIE
But NO Matter What The Story is a Great One

Another Good Book by LS 4.5 Stars

I wondered what the Deed was about. So, if you want to have a good time, read/listen to Lynsay Sands books. Her characters are strong in their own way, just listen. The humor, the danger and the love in her books holds your attention. You don't want to stop listening. Chloe Lynn was very good.

So disappointed! Buyer beware!

Took a chance on this title since it got such high marks from other reviewers...and the great cover art. Remember when you were a kid and you learned the hard way that the most beautiful cake icing was often bitter? Yeah, listening to this book felt a lot like that. There are many other historical romance audiobooks more deserving of your precious credit than than this superficial nonsense.

Boring

This is the most boring book I've ever listened too. The narrates voice just drones on & on. And the story is lame.

Weakest in the series

This is the first but the weakest in the series, to much blood sheed and way to little humour. I liked The Key best in this series, even though you had to make a concious decision to suspend all disbelief to enjoy the humour. Thinking about it, this instalment does aks for suspending of disbelief too, unfortunately the resulting humour is not quite the thing.

That said a have stuck to listening to worse.
