Publisher's Summary

Lady Jane Everard cannot abide the new earl of Hadley. The unmannered Scot is a menace to genteel ladies everywhere, what with his booming laugh and swishing kilt and endless supply of “ochs” and “ayes”. Jane wishes Lord Hadley would behave as an earl should and adhere to English rules of polite conduct.

Andrew Langston, the new earl of Hadley, knows that the English aristocracy think poorly of his lowly Scottish upbringing. This is hardly new. History is littered with the English assuming the worst about Scotland. By living up to their lowest expectations, he is simply fulfilling his civic duty as a Scotsman.

Jane sees Andrew as an unmannered eejit. Andrew considers Jane to be a haughty English lady. But, as the saying goes, opposites attract.... And what if beneath his boisterous behavior and her chilly reserve, Andrew and Jane are not nearly as different as they suppose? Can Scotland and England reach a harmonious union at last?

Interesting story with flawed audio

The story was interesting, clean, and creative but errors with audiofile production and editing marred my enjoyment. The problems consisted of repeated lines in several chapters and inconsistent sound levels that sometimes made the narrator sound like she was in a tunnel. I checked the audiobook against the ebook to confirm the repeated lines. Overall, the narrator did a good job but I found the errors annoying. I would love to have a file with the errors corrected.

would be awesome with another narrator

The Narrators voice was too high pitches when she inflected and her male voices were not good . Carmen Rose or Antony Ferguson would have been perfect to narrate this book .
The narrator made an awesome story a chore to get through

Narrator is terrible!

If it wasn't for the narrator, this book would have got five stars! The narrator made ALL the men sound like girls! The narrator, Rosie Akerman, does not have the ability, as do MANY other female narrators, to lower her voice when she is speaking as a man. It made all the men sound very feminine (when they were supposed to be VERY masculine men)! The story was very well written - I like the idea of the upright man, Scottish Earl, Andrew, and the ideals and morals of a true gentleman (or gentlewoman - but not a stifled one)! It was also really great that the story involved taking responsibility for one's actions (Peter) but also the idea of mercy, rather than revenge. Even Kieran, the revengeful Scot, showed mercy in the end. The story also brought out prejudice - in this case against a Scottish Earl by the English "nobility, (so-called)! It really was a very good story and would have been perfectly wonderful if a MORE TALENTED NARRATOR had read the book!!!
NOTE: This book was very irritating to listen to at for the first hour (I think 8 or 9 chapters) because the lines would be repeated in many instances! It was very irritating! So I called Audible and found out (after much discussion with the kind representative) that my iPhone (which is a 6PLUS) could not be updated to the latest software update - which is 14, as I understand it (mine was updated to 12.5 and stating it was the latest update)! Then the rep made sure that my iPhone was on "High" download quality and after that there was no repetition of lines!) I DO recommend this story, but I definitely DO NOT recommend this NARRATOR - just awful! Like fingernails on a blackboard..... I would love to read the rest of this series, but I cannot - because they all have this same terrible narrator!
