Summary

When his betrothed leaves him stranded at the altar, Lord Galen Woodbridge is more embarrassed than broken-hearted. Desperate to deflect attention from his humiliating plight, he decides to stir up a bit of a scandal - by wedding London's most eligible and elusive songstress, the magnificently sensuous Margot Montclaire.

After Galen proposes, Margot confides that her sexy demeanor is merely an act. A baron's daughter, she took to the stage to escape the clutches of a diabolical uncle - and reluctantly left her fragile young brother behind in his care. To win Margot's hand, Galen agrees to save her sickly sibling - but in this marriage of mutual convenience, he never planned on losing his heart...

Regency Romp that's fun

The narrator's bored, matter of fact telling of the tale is perfectly pitched. Clever dialogue and lots of giggles makes for an enjoyable listen.

Love this book. Good addition to my library.

Pure entertainment in one package: the goodies are good, baddies are evil, loughs are a plenty and love conkers all. The story is well written and expertly narrated. I am getting quite addicted to this author. Can't resist humorous interludes in a romantic story spiced with danger and a dash of mystery. Deadpan delivery by narrator is a bonus.

Funny and lighthearted

Can recommend this book. Only thing that spoilt it was the narrator's pretend French accent, otherwise she got it spot on.
I would buy books by this author again.

Great farcical regency romance

Nobody does regency farce like Barbara Metzger. Her use of alliteration is exceptional. Pippa Rathborne’s narration is excellent, with perfect comic timing and inflection. I have read most of this author’s books and enjoyed them very much. While listening to Ms Rathborne narration, I gained a whole other level of appreciation for the humor and clever writing in Ms Metzger’s stories. Stevie Zimmerman narrates some of these, and while she does a very good job, many of the humorous aspects are read straight. I hope that Ms Rathborne continues to record this author’s books - all of them! You will find yourself laughing out loud. Some of the books are a bit explicit, though this one is not. I’d give it a PG rating.

Not her best

This one was too tedious and farcical for me. I skipped most of the middle. As other reviewers have said, the beginning is more interesting than the second half when the house and storyline turns into a circus of over-the-top events. Also, I did not care for the voice of Margot. She sounded old and sometimes shaky, so it was difficult to imagine her still in childbearing years.
