Publisher's Summary

The Dowager Lady Worthington isn't quite sure what to make of country-girl Dorothea Stern. As the granddaughter of the Duke of Bristol, Dotty is schooled in the ways and means of the nobility. But her sharp wit and outspoken nature has everyone in a tizzy. Especially their cousin, Dominic, the Marquis of Merton.

Prematurely stuffy, Dom was raised by his cheerless uncle to be wary of a host of things, including innovation, waltzing, and most perilous of all: true love. Still, there's something about Dotty, beyond her beauty, that Dom cannot resist. But the odds are against him if he intends to win her as his bride. Will he choose loyalty to his family - or risk everything for the one woman he believes is his perfect match?

Narrator is terrible!

I've only made it 38 minutes into this and I'm returning it and just reading the Kindle book. The narrator is terrible! Choppy elocution due to over-pronunciation of every single syllable so that *everyone* sounds like an old, pompous ass no matter what their age or sex! I gave the story 4 stars only based on on the other reviews but felt I needed to comment on the narration since no one else has given a review on the Audible book...

Narrator made the dialogue sound so stilted

I couldn't get past the first 20 minutes due to the narration. I'm returning this one.

Not a Cheesy Romance Novel

Yes it is a Regency novel but there is nothing cheesy about it. The story is well crafted and the characters well drawn. The Marquis is as dry as the the stick up his rump. He was raised steeped in the belief that he is an aristo and entitled. All was as it was to have been until an unknown woman approached him demanding he listen and hls refusal to release her until he could determine what she was up to. She was only trying to warn him of a pending parsons trap but before she could do it he dragged them both into an unintended trap and she became his afianceed bride. She is also an aristo but from the other wing. She believes that to whom much is given even more is expected. Being an aristo just isn't enough.

There are no spoliers here. Just a lost boy, a couple of kittens, murder, kidnapping and your usual Regency novel fare.

narrator kills the story.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

it was for me.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

it was not a great story. i doubt i will buy another book by this author.
At that time in England, title was of most importance and to make constant fun of the Marquise's title was not realistic.
and it was not only the bride, which may be understandable because she was looking for love but some around him.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Cat Gould?

Alex Wyndham, but he is too good for this story

What character would you cut from When a Marquis Chooses a Bride?

none

Any additional comments?

it was such bad narration the choice was to just stop or cut my audible loss and finish by reading it.
