Publisher's Summary

Lady Charlotte Beaufort of Beaufort Manor, England, is accustomed to the finer things in life. She’s used to everything going her way. But it’s all about to change.

When her parents force her into an engagement with the duke of Notherington, a man she barely knows, she runs away - traveling aboard a steamer to the New World.

Harry Brown, a silversmith’s apprentice from Greyburn, doesn’t stand a chance with the beautiful Charlotte. Then he runs afoul of the local thug, and he and his sister have to leave town. When Charlotte and Harry cross paths, the attraction is undeniable - but can they overcome generations of social barriers to admit their true feelings for one another? 

Take a journey from the beautiful Lakes District of England to untamed Cutter's Creek, Montana Territory, where the rules of love are bound to be broken.

A sweet romance in an odyssey from England to Montana

The Betrothed tells of friendship in an odyssey from England to Montana and an unlikely romance that blossoms in the new world where titles no longer make the man. This is a clean romance with a sprinkling of religion (but not in an obtrusive way).

The narrator of the audiobook sounds like a cowboy, though he does accents for the characters. I'm not sure how well that fits this particular story. He does a nice job of reading the book though.

I received a complimentary copy of this audiobook. This is my honest and voluntary review.

What a story!

This historical romance is not like any other that I have ever listened to. It starts out as a regency romance as Charlotte leaves England to escape an arranged marriage. She ends up in New York to find herself in a financial mess and ends up crossing the states to Montana with Camilla and Harry to the "old west". I loved the transitions of the story, each having Charlotte grow a little more into the woman she becomes. The story really picks up a lot when they start out on the wagon train, adding some real romance and suspense to the mix. The characters are well developed, but I especially loved Harry. His character really transformed over the course of the story, and he not only won Charlotte's heart, but mine too. It takes a strong woman to go through what Charlotte did, and Vivi Holt really pulls out all the stops, showing how affairs of the heart are not dictated by arrangement or class. Well written and a complete joy to listen to.

Paul Curtis does an admirable narration. He has a good pace though at times his voices were not easily discernible between characters. As the story progressed, his narration improves, and makes the book a pleasant escape.

Loved it

I loved the story about Charlotte and Harry both of them had a lot of growing to do. They manage that by traveling to America then west on the wagon train. The one thing that disappointed me was the narrator,. The first time he used Charlotte’s voice, I bike out in laughter. It grew on me as the story continued, I heard better women’s voices done by male narrators. When I wasn’t distracted by the voice I was really into the story.

Sweet Romance

This one kind of reminded me a little bit of the movie Far and Away... but without the boxing. It was a lot of fun and even better it was a clean romance. The narrator did a great job too. I would recommend this one to those who like the clean romances.

Enjoyable, historical faith-based romance!

It is the story of an upper crust lately who takes for granted the finer things in her life but fights against having to marry the Duke that her parents pick out for her. To get out of the marriage, she runs away – across the ocean. This was a good book and I really enjoyed all of the details that the author put in about how the characters would have acted and what they would have done. She did a lot of research that made the book very realistic. The narration was well done and added to the whole story.

Adventures!

I have enjoyed this audiobook. A romance that’s filled with adventures and has some faith filled, redemptive qualities too. Starting out in England Charlotte is expected to marry well and her Father and Mother insisted she go through with her wedding. So she decided to take matters in her own hands and ended up in New York. With her friends from home, Harry and Camille, she survived. I loved all three of the main characters and I loved the narrator. Charlotte and Harry were so funny sometimes and I think Camille evened them out. Either way I enjoyed their adventures and I didn’t know what they were going to do next. Oh and I’m always in the mood for reading a little about the wagon trains.
If you like Historical Romance you will probably enjoy this book.

The Betrothed

It starts as a regency romance, with Lady Charlotte being forced into an arranged marriage, and ends as a beautiful western romance in the Montana territory. I really enjoyed how the story transitioned as we journeyed half way around the world. Seeing Charlotte and Harry (and Camilla) grow throughout the journey really added to my enjoyment.
