Summary

A troubled widow and a dashing war hero clash in this compelling regency romance.

There are worse things than being spectacularly jilted. Losing a leg, for instance, or getting shot - well, perhaps not: The bullet Alistair took fighting in the peninsula never landed him in London's scandal sheets.

Captain Alistair Beaumaris never dreamed he'd be tossed over by Lord Fairchild's bastard daughter, losing both her and her fortune - a singular humiliation that should have taught him a lesson. But when your luck is out, you do foolish things, like quarrel with your oldest friend. Or mistake a perfectly respectable widow for a lady of easy virtue.

Unfortunately, that kind of blunder needs fixing. Yielding to his troublesome conscience, Alistair tracks down the elusive widow...but the only thing he doesn't find is an easy way out.

Nil Point

Dreadful narration put paid to this book after not very long. Tweaked the playback speed and the volume, it was too dreadful to continue.

Another great listen from Jaima Fixen.

This is the second book in this series. I really enjoy Jaima's writing and her idea for stories. There is romance but not in-your-face-steamy romance, just soft with a little kissing. Sometimes you don't need to have things explained in detail but use your imagination instead. If you enjoy a clean, light story, this one might be for you.

I really enjoyed the story as a whole and I can't imagine a better narrator for these characters. Thanks again to everyone at audible for another great story

Riveting Novel!

I loved the first in the series and this one was even better! It was so well-written and with depth. I am a sucker for historical/Regency-era, clean romance stories. You get a lot of fluff in the genre (think Hallmark movies), but some real gems like this one (think blockbuster)! The excitement and drama were so enthralling! Beautiful depth of emotion - I felt emotional and intellectually stimulated. I couldn't put it down! The narration is superb as well. Love, love, LOVE the story! Jaima Fixsen, I'm your newest fan! Keep them coming!

Enjoyed every bit!

No blatant sex. Full story. Even though second of a series it was complete in itself. Main character’s story is untold slowly. I ended up admiring her strong character of loyalty despite how others had treated her. In this era, children were passed on to governesses, rarely interacting with their parents. Most books only allude to what damage it can do as the child becomes an adult but we were able to follow one small boy as he finally finds security with parents to love and accept him.

Dragged on and on

The first book was okay, but the second (this one) was so repetitive. The h repeats the same thought over and over again, I started skipping ahead. I also thought the book was all over the place, felt like 2-smaller books in one.
The details in the story were a bit much. I don't need to know every single color, taste, or movement that takes place, especially when it's not supporting the story development.

Characters seem to suffer from long-term depression

I so enjoyed the first volume in this series and was eager to listen to the second. It has Alistair, a very likable character from the first book, as a lead in the second. He continues to be likable but some of the supporting characters are less so.

For the majority of the book, most of the characters seems very depressed. There was some romance (two, in fact) but even those are surrounded by sad events and long-depressed characters. The war scenes add context to the novel, but seem to go on too long.

The book is interesting but not the cheerful romance I was expecting. I missed the two main characters from the first novel who were only mentioned but never appear.

Incognito was quite enjoyable!

I loved this story, I'm glad I found Jaima Fixsen.
Her books are refreshing and not so dramatic.

Surprisingly good

What a perfect combination of skillful writing joined by a superb performance by the narrator.
