Publisher's Summary

She was unquestionably a lady. Still, that had never stopped him before. He could see that she was not, he thought, that young. Even better. Another twinge of pain from behind his eyes lent a harshness to his voice. "Who the devil are you?" In no way discomposed, she answered, "My name is Caroline Twinning. And if you really are the Duke of Twyford, then I'm very much afraid I'm your ward...."

Max Rotherbridge couldn't believe it. Along with the dukedom of Twyford, he - London's most notorious rogue - had inherited wardship of four devilishly attractive sisters! Including the irresistible Caroline Twinning. The eldest Twinning was everything he had ever wanted in a woman, but even Max couldn't seduce his own ward...or could he? After all, he did have a substantial reputation to protect. And what better challenge than the one woman capable of stealing his heart?

Good listen

A cute book that was easy to listen to. I loved the narrator her voice was uniquely nice and she didn't use that weird whisper type voice that so many of the the romance narrators use. The narrator definitely gets a thumbs up from me.

Completely uninteresting

I know it’s a shocker but in this romance the 4 heros all end up with their heroines. Ok since I am not giving that part away I need to tell you that all 4 sisters elope and all have sex before that and it all happens on the same afternoon while their chaperone is God knows where. Trust me I am not giving anything away except trying to save you from hours of torture. 4 men meet 4 amazing women who were absolutely gorgeous on top of it all and the nerve of them to want marriage before they gave it away to rakes. None of the heros wanted to get leg shackled and 2 wanted to make 2 of the gently raised women into their mistresses when the ladies were the toast of the Ton. Stupid storyline does not say enough to do this ridiculous storyline justice.

Nice easy read

What did you love best about Four in Hand?

I liked that it was a nice lovely story without all the endless explicit sex that Laurens usually has that gets old and boring after awhile.

Have you listened to any of Ashford MacNab’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Ashford MacNab is one of my favorite narrators.

Any additional comments?

Sometimes I want a light and entertaining story that is not so intense, and that I can sit back and listen and enjoy, and this fit the bill.

A Lot Of Fun

The story is funny and the narrator is perfect! Even though I've both read and listened to this book before, I still enjoy sitting back to enjoy this romp! There are a many 'laugh out loud' moments, too.

Not what I expected

This book was boring, No real excitement, no passion. The only redeeming element is the narrator. She's excellent every time

Hmmm

Probably won’t finish this one. It seemed somewhat predatory. I agree with a couple of previous reviewers that this is odd, with rakes having immediate nefarious intentions toward the young women. Additionally, it was weird to be inundated with that right away, so it dominated the story. As an early example, the main hero talks creepy sexual innuendo during a dance to one of his wards he only recently met. (Sure, he knows she’s not his ward, but she doesn’t know that yet, and it’s still creepy.) It had a unique premise, which is why I was initially interested.

I enjoyed the performance. I wasn't let down!

I enjoyed the performance. I wasn't let down! This book is one that I go back and reread often. So I was a little nervous about listening to it. I'll be re-listening to this book too!

The Rouge had no idea lol

I loved this story, a bad boy rouge who believe he is untouchable when it comes to marriage and all his bad boy friends little do they know those days are coming to a end.
Yes not much details of their love making skills but oh so delightful will not disappoint.

Four virgins stalked

I found this plot very offensive. Although these ended in marriage, the men were the most reprehensible rakes, stalking four virgins relentlessly. Two were even coerced to sex before being told marriage was possible.
Not at all romantic.
