Summary

The fateful encounter, and a rash decision, changes their lives forever. Lord Humphrey Dewesbury doesn't want to offer for the annoying Augusta Ratcliffe, but the alliance was concocted when they were children. Joan Chadwick, an orphaned vicar's daughter, faces a dreary life as a governess. Neither wants to embrace their separate fates. Together, they can save each other. There's just one problem to overcome - family expectations. A light-hearted comedy regency romance.

Best Gayle Buck yet. Wish it was longer lol

As with all the other Gayle Buck books I’ve listened to, I devoured this one. It is such a wonderful story and so well written with fantastic characters that I was really sad when it ended. I wanted it to go on and on. If you are a fan of Georgette Heyer then you will love Gayle Buck. The performance is spot on by one of my favourite narrators as well. Highly recommend!

Delightful! (Clean Regency)

Story: 5 stars

Gayle Buck writes the most delightful plots and characters!

I have yet to read (or listen to) a book of hers that was not masterfully choreographed and filled with side characters to give humor to the serious situations in which the protagonists find themselves.

This one does not disappoint!

Narration: 5 stars

Julia Eve does it again! Well-acted, authentically accented and believable characterizations. She creates an atmosphere that I love to visit over and over again. She’s an excellent voice actress!

Fresh and Funny!

It is truly a privilege to read or listen to this author's stories. This one is fresh, filled with funny moments, has some really interesting and well constructed characters and a slow smoldering romance.
I love the sweet comradery between Humphrey and Joan. Add to this a conniving and calculating grandmother and you can expect something very out of the ordinary. And then we have Augusta, um, well yes, Augusta who wants Humphrey because she just wants him!
I listened to a promotional copy of the audiobook narrated by the very talented Julia Eve who lends her versatile voice-ability to enhance this production. An absolute pleasure to listen to!
My voluntary review, based on my person thoughts, is unbiased and recorded above.

entertaining

I found this highly entertaining and a comedy of errors. The unexpected ally of Cassandra was momentous, but she had her own agenda too.
Alas, the course of true love never runs smoothly but all ends with a hea. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator did a great job bringing the characters and story to life.
