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.

Excellent

This is a great book as are all of your books. The only thing I miss is a good epilogue to finish off the story and make sure that she had no trouble having the baby, etc. Things like that would make me happy and feel as if the story had really come to an end. Thank you for letting someone that knows nothing of writing to spout off about it without taking offense.
Warm Regards, BJ Sherwin NP-C

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

Characters were okay

I felt like the main characters were too predictable and cardboard. For example, at first the woman main character was naive and talkative - willing to share her personal life with the King of England. Later in the book she was more clever, and stupidly stubborn. She repeatedly did things that she knew weren't intelligent to do; especially when her life was in danger! Her husband was a caveman! Stubborn and stupid too. I often laugh when I read Lynsay Sands' books, as she can be humorous, but I laughed less in this book because the characters were so stupid!

NoGo! If you are a serious reader

I’m a serious reader and don’t like short cuts and low level story telling. This story is over done and not believable; annoyingly so. The performance is also really hard to get through. I’m sorry to say this, I usually don’t leave reviews but this book is too expensive not to warn readers.

cute love story

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.

I wanted to like it.

I usually really enjoy this author, but this book was a little hard to get through. I am not sure if it was the fact that this is her first novel, but the plot was a little scattered. The narrator did not change her tone or pace when switching character, which made parts of the story hard to follow.

Funny medieval romp

My only real concern is that I really would like a male actor voicing the male parts. Otherwise it was very funny especially those scenes with the King and the wedding!

Good start to this book series

I liked the narrator and how she performed the telling of this story and I like the humor that was displayed with each character and I liked how the story progressed with each character and how they interacted to give a good story. I do recommend this series.

Boring

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

funny

Loved the story, hilarious a lot of the time, alas the narrator although good didn't quite capture the nuance of tone, it was very careful and this story reading needed more flair.
That said it was bearable.

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.

Enjoyable Story

I enjoyed the story greatly. The narrator spoke too slowly so I had to increase the speed, but otherwise she did a fine job.
