Summary

Sometimes, a woman needs a hero.

Miss Caroline Jennings is facing a life of shame and poverty. She has lost everything: her home, her father, and any chance of happiness. What is more? If her father's secret is exposed, she will be known as the daughter of a traitor.

Surely, life cannot get much worse.

When a carriage accident throws her into the river - fitting punishment for her father's crimes - she is tempted to allow herself to succumb. It is only the thought of her two younger sisters and the strong arms of her rescuer that keep her among the living.

Alexander Vessey, Viscount Beachmont, ex-soldier, and one of the richest men in Britain. A classic hero if she'd ever seen one. Big, strong, and commanding. Any woman's heart would flutter like hers to be saved by him.

His heroics unfortunately have saved her for a life of loneliness and want.

However, when he offers her a marriage of convenience, it seems the perfect solution to regain her life. The only danger she faces now is the possibility of losing her heart.

Enjoyable

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
Story & narration both are really very good.

Not my favorite narrator

Thankfully the story saved this audiobook. The narration added nothing and, in fact, detracted from the enjoyment.

As in the previous book, the narrator threw in American accents where they certainly didn't belong. Quite distracting. When a reader makes one stop and think "what the heck?" instead of absorbing the story it's unfair to the author. This happens frequently by this narrator.

And the author could use a better editor. There were several times "could care less" was used. Bad! Then she popped in a "couldn't care less" so someone finally noticed. Fingernails on a blackboard to me. And, I may be wrong on this but why is the wife of a Viscount referred to as a Countess? Shouldn't she be a Viscountess?

The characters were interesting. I would have liked more with young James. As I said, the story was decent and it was worth listening to. I think it may have been better to read it, though. I will listen to the next book only because I've already bought it.

Nothing special either in plot or characters

The plot is rather simple and although the story has it's moments of actually being interesting, the love described in this 6 hour book comes about unrealistically. It's also silly to imagine the passion they shared the first time was his very best ever. With a virgin whom he marries out of convenience and with a wham-bam-thank-you-ma'am kind of coupling? Not impressed at all. Can not say I recommend this book.

Impoverished Ton Elder Sister Meets Viscount

I saw the Jennie Goutet review and was leary, but I did VISCOUNT'S BRIDE as an audiobook, so I literally did not see minor execution problems. #2 of 4 in a series but a whole story. Audiobook narration is very good, with lots of pitch, rate and vocal variation, thus avoiding the dread sing-songy pattern of some narrators. Appropriately British. Functions as a stand alone, could read in any order, but 1->4 is best.

Story:
Caroline Jennings, oldest of three sisters, has been recently impoverished by a father who became mysteriously rich, Alexander Vessey, who is growing tired of ton moms trying to trap him into marriage.

Note to author: With a bit more snarky humor you can enjoy the popularity of J. Quinn or T. Dare or add more bigger issue sentimal angst and join M. Balogh. A bit more historic political detail and visual description would enrich your books for me. Please consider adding some of your books to public library audiobook apps to build egalitarian your audience.

Why...why...why...is Chapter 1 of Book 1 stuck onto the end of the book 2 audiobook?

secrets uncovered

I liked that Alex was a hero throughout the story. He came to Caroline's rescue personally and through his orders over and over. Chivalry and love are alive and well.
Suspenseful, drama, and romance . What an ending!! I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator did a good job bringing it to life.

it's quite good.

The story and narration were good. The ending came a little to quickly. I would prefer the ending wrap things up better. But it was a good ending.

Ok Steamy Romance for 18+ Readers

So, not the best story by this author but I really think it was the narration that bothered me most. The story was fine but felt a bit cold and forced to then suddenly heat up as quick as it did. The use of the wrong title for viscount's wife yes is a simple error that should have been fixed but if you're not super detail oriented then it may not bother you. As with other books by this author the bedroom door stays wide open and is definitely an adult read. The narrator was fine during most of the book, the part that bothered me the most was the viscount's much younger brother was given an American little kid accent that didn't fit the story.

*viscountess

This one was okay did me. I absolutely love a cheesy regency romance. Love them. Read way too many. But when an author who writes in this era makes mistakes on things that are easily googled, I’m distracted and frustrated. In this case it’s the repeated use of calling the wife of a viscount “countess”. Nope. She’d be a viscountess.

Surprised a book that made it up audible has such a big mistake. You’d think an editor would have caught that.
