Summary

Aurora Halle McPhee, a girl of humble (some might say unconventional) background, cannot believe her luck when she is betrothed to the dashing, well-bred Harland Podell. Aurora soon learns, however, that the match is too good to be true when the nuptials are interrupted by the brother of the groom's wife!

Kenyon Warriner, Earl of Windham, is determined to foil that bigamous bounder Podell before he disgraces another innocent female as he did Kenyon's own sister. The earl will save Miss McPhee's honor. Even if he must wed her himself...

Laugh out loud funny

I seldom laugh aloud when listening to audio books but the green room brawl especially had me roaring. The narrator's bored, matter of fact telling of the tale is perfectly pitched.

Lots of laughs

Even though all the requisite elements of a romance are present , they are delivered with great humor. Also , the female protagonist is not the typical wilting stereotype one expects in this genre. This is especially fun for those who’ve read a lot of regency romances and found them a bit trying after a while. Good alternative for Heyerdahl fans who’ve run out of her books

A Worthy Listen

Once again Ms Metzger shines and Ms Rathborne entertains. This is a brilliant match of talent that delivers a noteworthy experience. Ms Rathborne has the perfect voice for Ms Metzger’s brand of storytelling. She (Rathborne) gives excellent pitch and nuance to the characters.
Whenever there is a new release of the pairing of Metzger and Rathborne, it is an automatic purchase for me.
