Summary

The Duke of Malmesbury’s daughters discover that passion can derail even the best-laid matrimonial plans.

Lady Cecily is known as the “Ice Princess” because of her cool blond beauty and her refusal to wed any of her several eligible suitors. She has no choice but to obey her father, the Duke, who wants Cecily to marry the one man who can assure the family’s social and financial positions: The arrogant and infuriating Viscount Ravenwood, who has been her enemy since childhood. A marriage of convenience is all she expects from their pairing - she has no idea that Ravenwood conceals a deep secret, or just how determined he will be to claim her heart.

Cecily’s sister, Lady Brittany, is relieved that she doesn’t have to take part in the husband hunt in London’s marriage mart - though as a duke’s daughter, she is considered a prime catch. Comfortably engaged to amiable Lord Anthony Faringdon, she knows that though they may not be a love match, she and Tony will get along just fine - that is, until she meets his best friend, the darkly handsome Marquess of Cheriton, whose eyes pierce her very soul. Brittany’s comfortable life and perfect plans will be overturned by her increasingly passionate feelings for the irresistibly charming Marquess.

Diverting

Two wonderful bits of escapism very well narrated. The heroine in the first is ditsy and the fiance in the second a hothead. The stories are sufficiently enjoyable to forgive the extremely bossy and impertinent lady's maids.

Quite delightful

I rather enjoyed these stories. The Narrator is pretty good and easy on the ear. Light airy and not too mushy with a spatter of fun.

A satisfying listen

Great story line that gives a good glimpse of life in high society in the 1800’s
Far too much time spent describing attires and discussing bonnets and sashes, but overall not too bad at all

Returned soft porn in historical dress

Originally I thought it was the Awful narration that made the book sound a bad mills and boon but then realised it was the writing. Returned

Mildly entertaining.

There's nothing truly wrong with the first half of the book that I finished indeed. The story in what comes to development and speed is fine but I thought it was rather disappointing. I found the heroine slightly ridiculous, she was courageous and fierce with everyone but her husband. The hero was very unromantic, at least in my books. Again nothing terrible about it, but nothing great either.

I gave up on the second part.

Two love stories for the price of one

An unrealistic portrayal of acceptable behaviour of what a Duke’s daughter would be able to get away with in the timeline.
Readable but unbelievable.

Pleasant

NOT Georgette Heyer but pleasant. A discordant note is the constant harping on fathers and husbands. It may have been legally possible to a limited degree but it seems rather unlike the gentlemanly behaviour that the period demanded.
The narrator’s style of slight pauses in totally the wrong places is a little irritating, but she has a pleasant voice.

I lovely story

This is a beautiful story, this author into such detail to describe the goings-on and the surroundings in the story and the homes of the people that live there, with all the detail and research that has been put into this book, it brings the story alive to the mains I.
I really enjoyed the story, it’s beautiful. I am so sorry about my typos, I am visually impaired.
