Publisher's Summary

Determined to prove her worth as a budding archeologist, Genisse Braxton vows to solve one of the world's greatest mysteries - to find the location of the lost city of Zerzura. Unfortunately, no man dares take the risk of escorting the resolute young scholar across the open desert. But on her way to Egypt, Genisse engages in a daring deception - she will switch places with Mildred Whimpelhall, who is traveling to meet her fiancé.

Cynical adventurer Jim Owen will do anything to escape the dark secrets of his troubled past. Betrayed by the woman he loved, scorned by proper society, he agrees to carry out a danger-fraught task: escort Mildred Whimpelhall across a lawless desert to her intended. But Jim is about to learn that "Mildred" isn't exactly what she seems... and the dangers they face together are eclipsed only by an even greater peril: falling in love, against all reason, with another guy's bride.

IT WOULD MAKE A GREAT FILM

What a surprise 'coz I hadn't heard of the writer - but it was an entertaining and funny lighthearted listen that sucks you in from the start - most enjoyable.

Worth a credit? Absolutely YES

Enjoyable for the price

I enjoyed this, but didn't love it. The beginning was slow. The narrator was great except for her male American accent. Her voice shook every time "Jim" spoke.

Delightfully funny, wonderfully narrated

This is a wonderfully written light romance that had me chuckling frequently. Connie Brockway's humour is very subtle, but it is shined brightly with Justine Eyre's excellent narration. This was my first time listening to Justine Eyre and I was just blown away by how beautifully she did her job. Not only was her reading clear and paced just right, she seemed to really enjoy performing the roles of the various characters. After just finishing another audio book where the narrator seemed to want to be anywhere but reading, this was a very welcome change. What a delight! I'd be more than happy to sit and listen to the entire book again immediately.

Thoroughly recommended and I'll be seeking out more books by both the author and the narrator.

Great story-Lame title!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

It's exciting, quick paced, and takes place OUTSIDE of England.

What did you like best about this story?

The romance remained unpredictable.

Have you listened to any of Justine Eyre’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I enjoyed all her different voices for the characters.

Any additional comments?

An exciting historical romance that takes place outside of England. Glad I used a credit to get it. I will look for others by this author.

Really Fun!

Having never read Connie Brockway before, I wasn't sure what to expect from the Other Guy's Bride. Fortunately, the novel, which is set in Eygpt, makes good use of its exotic location. The story involves a good dose of adventure, comedy, and romance, as well as two sparring adventurers with a lot of chemistry.

Great Book

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

It had strong main characters and interesting secondary characters. It was adventurous and a bit quirky. It had an authentic feel to it.

What other book might you compare The Other Guy's Bride to and why?

A bit like the Amelia Peabody (Elizabeth Peters) series with a bit of Stephanie Laurnes thrown in.

Have you listened to any of Justine Eyre’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is the first time I have heard Justine and I think she suited the story well.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, but I didn't want it to end.

Any additional comments?

This was my first audiobook purchase and I was a bit unsure after reading the reviews, but was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed it all. This is a book I will keep as a favorite and listen to again.
I will definitely read the next Connie Brockway book.

City Lost Romance Found

The book was charming. The settings delightful. I could see the wadi, feel that I was there. It was like a classic romance from the twenties. Well, with a little steamier sex. What it lacked in realism it made up in sheer entertainment. I enjoyed the appeal of the characters. I have already recommended this book to a friend. I did that before I had finished listening to it. I feel that I have found a new author to enjoy.

MAGICAL !

I loved this book. It has all the elects to make a successful audiobook. The story was magical! Set in Egypt gave the whole story an aura of magic that really caprures you. The story has the right balance between romance and suspense. The characters were really really captivating, the hero is one of the best Hero characters ever created in historical romance. Sexy yet funny, tough yet humble. Loved him!
And finally the narration. Justine Eyre was MAGNIFICENT ! She was really really good ! She has a rich sensuous voice to begin with. But her performance keeps getting better and better . She brought the story to life as if you are watching a movie with your eyes closed :)
Excellent book I highly recommend it :)

Lots of chuckling!

I'd be lying if I said this wasn't a little over the top in places. Jim's eye-rolling declarations of love are so out there you can't help but snort or chuckle. Ginesse's propensity for finding trouble is unmatched but Jim's approach to it is often hilarious. Ms Brockway's writing style is like riding gently undulating hills, lots of ups and downs that flow effortlessly from one scene to the next, pulling you along with it. Quite an enjoyable book and really good narration too! Time to see what else she's written...

Don't bother

Gave up halfway through. The heroine is annoying, and so is the actor narrating. She has spoilt many a book for me before. However, in this case I must say I have read much better from this author.
