Publisher's Summary

Head writer for daytime's only historical romantic soap opera, small-town girl Jenny Cotton is on top of the world. But she can't seem to write herself out of a difficult relationship until actor Alec Cameron walks onto the set.

Alec survived a big-budget TV flop with the same "good guy" courage that got him out of a failed marriage. But no matter how hard he tries, he can't seem to hide his wounds from writer Jenny.

Now the script flowing from Jenny's pen and unfolding every weekday afternoon to millions of eager fans is more than just a story...it's his story, which is quickly becoming their story. But Jenny doesn't want to be rescued by a "good guy" white knight any more than Alec wants to fall in love with Jenny.

Fun story within story

Engaging story with excellent characters. Too bad they had Soudek as the narrator. Nice enough voice but, as usual, Soudek had no depth of emotion in her narration and she drags out every line.

Wow! Brilliant! I adored this story!!

Pretty much loved every word! I have liked this author's work before but in the past found some story a bit long... not this time. It was perfect! Definitely an intellectual read packed with such fun, witty tounge in cheek dialog and memorable, complicated characters who are very well developed. I wish this had sparked a series about the soap opera cast and crew.

This is definitely not for an immature reader. Not that it has any elict material it is not. However, the content is quite sophisticated.

The writing format/style is unique fluctuating the story between real life interactions and the scripting of a Regency period soap opera.

Narration was very good. Though I did have to increase the speed to 1.2.

Narrator taalllkkkssss sooooo slowwwwwwly

I’m sure this was a great story but the narrator was so slow I couldn’t pay attention. I tried putting her on 1.5 speed but it was too distracting Good thing it was free.

LONG & BORING!

The most exciting thing to happen in this book was when Jenny's boyfriend Brian left town for some kind of convention & came back married to a 19 year old clueless version of him. Brian latched on to Jenny when they were 14 years old & used her for 14 years. Everybody could see it but her. They came to New York together. When Jenny became head writer on a soap opera, Mr Brian got a job on said soap opera & used their relationship to get all kinds of perks. He constantly reinforced her low self-esteem by agreeing that she wasn't good at the " girl stuff." This dumb idea came from the fact that her mother died when she was a baby & she was raised by a loving single father & that her first sexual encounter was with BRIAN THE LEECH & it didn't go well. It never occurred to her that maybe he was the problem. After that he pretended he loved her until he met his female counterpart, a 19 year old leech. Alex (a real man) comes along ,loves her, helps her, rocks her world & dispels the myth of her not being good at the girl stuff & this idiot continued to whine & bemoan her lost non-love with the leech. It was 11 hrs & 45 mins of torture. By the time Jenny wised up & got with Alex I didn't care. The narrator didn't help because she sounded like she was bored too.

Fun with just enough angst to be interesting.

I just discovered this author this week and frankly selected this book because it was included with my new audible membership. The story was well developed as were the characters. I understood why the characters acted as they did without unnecessarily prolonged back stories. This book offers a heroine and hero I can root for that were likable but flawed enough to be interesting. I loved the happy ever after ending and will be seeking more books by this author.

Great story, uneven narration


Although I rarely have watched TV soaps, I found the details about the process of making soaps fascinating. The characters were mostly well-drawn, including the minor characters. Jenny Cotton is the head writer and developer of a half-hour soap set in Regency England. Alec Cameron is a former soap star whose career tanked after he was blamed for the failure of a major soap. When Jenny casts him on My Lady's Chamber, he is very attracted to her. Another new hire, a sexy young woman, suddenly marries Jenny's long-time boyfriend. Seidel's deft writing keeps this soap opera-ish plot fresh and interesting. The story is engaging. The narration is mostly fine with the text but it becomes cringeworthy when she attempts the dialogue the actors say in what is supposed to be a TV show set in Regency England. Sometimes it sounds more like Gone With the Wind than Pride and Prejudice.
