Publisher's Summary

Fleeing a proposal and in search of a fortune, one headstrong young lady moves to London to play the high-stakes game of love. Catheryn Westering has no intention of marrying her respectable but boring cousin, Edmund Caston, and her aunt and uncle have no intention of giving her access to her newly discovered fortune. Daringly, she rushes to London to appeal to her distant, very attractive kinsman, the Earl of Dambroke, for help.

Before Dambroke knows it, she's become an essential part of his household: an eager participant in the London social whirl; a protege of his mother; a confidante to his spoilt sister and his mischievous younger brother; and a thorn in the masterful Earl's side. But London is a dangerous place, and although Dambroke frequently objects to Catheryn's "interference" in his family and social affairs, is it possible that, beneath his exasperation, much warmer feelings for Catheryn have already ignited?

Beautifully performed

What did you love best about The Fugitive Heiress?

The performance

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

As expected but with interesting twists

What about Carmela Corbett’s performance did you like?

She has a lovely voice and is pretty consistent in her performance of each character

Any additional comments?

Carmela Corbett does such an excellent job that I'd follow and purchase any audibles performed by her!

Littered with mispronunciations

The narrator's performance was good but the mispronounced words were irritating. I enjoyed the story but the alpha male hero was a tad off-putting.

Quite boring

This story was about the everyday life of a family in Regency times. There was no romance all through out the book until almost to the very end. I found it quite boring. It's the first book I listened to by Amanda Scott and it will be my last.
The narrator was good.

Goodish story - sad reflection of the times

I really enjoy Regency novels: mystery, adventure, crime, romance and all things in between. This story has it all! From behaviours at Eton to autocratic behaviours at the finest homes. From injured war heroes to overindulged debutantes. The scandalous waltz to the scandalous Caro Lamb. From misunderstood Trusts to abductions!

This novel has it all, told in a seamless, intriguing manner. Nothing is out of place or forced - a steady series of ‘a day in the life of’ events.

Engaging characters, annoying characters, absurd characters and charming characters. Not to mention the bullying, shady, devious, underhand, sly, silly and spoilt characters too.

A whole Regency world is here! It’s marked down for 2 reasons:
Performance - Carmela Corbett occasionally pauses in the middle of a sentence. She does it enough times for it to be noticeable. However, she manages all accents and genders really well.
Story - Whilst I have no doubt that it was the way of that world. I truly didn’t enjoy the frequent use of abuse and the threat of it, against women and children. It spoilt the narrative for me. It was a sad, I enlightened time.

spoiled by narrator.

Likes the story but nothing really new. I dont like to leave a book unfinished, so listened to the end. However the pronunciation of many words & hesitation at wrong moments ended up being very annoying.
