Summary

RITA Award Winner, Historical Romance, Short, 2015

As the daughter of a famed author, Isolde Ophelia Goodnight grew up on tales of brave knights and fair maidens. She never doubted romance would be in her future, too. The storybooks offered endless possibilities. 

And as she grew older, Izzy crossed them off. One by one by one.

  • Ugly duckling turned swan?
  • Abducted by handsome highwayman?
  • Rescued from drudgery by charming prince?

No, no, and…Heh. 

Now Izzy's given up yearning for romance. She'll settle for a roof over her head. What fairy tales are left over for an impoverished 26-year-old woman who's never even been kissed? 

This one.

Another entertaining read

I’m a bit of a Tessa Dare fan, her books are light, entertaining, sparkling and humorous. Everything I’m looking for in my fiction reading. This is another joyous beauty to suspend reality for.

Not great

This has some okay smut with a weak plot and laughable premise. The dialogue and characters are terrible. The absolute lack of any historical research makes this pretty painful overall. Narration was great given the material.

A well written, well narrated masterpiece

With one book, Tessa Dare takes everything we love about period romances to the next level. Her writing is on par with Julia Quinn and Mary Balogh, if not better. Rousing, entertaining and thoroughly engaging with believable characters and page turning imagery. Carmen Rose's voice is amazing and clear. BRILLIANT!

loved it

Loved every second of it. each time I had to stop listening I couldn't wait to get back to it.
The narrator was very good, Carmen Rose is one of the few female narrators I like.
Will definitely listen to this book again.

Meh!

I couldn't get into this audiobook as the plot appears good but the writing is pathetic. The references to fairy tales is irritating and ridiculous.

Another laugh out loud story by Ms Dare

Prepare yourself to be thoroughly entertained by a grumpy duke who has lost his sight, an impoverished lady whose life will become her fairy tale and lots of hilarious and also hot moments that will make you smile.
