Publisher's Summary

It's difficult to find a husband in Regency England when you're a young lady with only half a soul.

Ever since a faerie cursed her, Theodora Ettings has had no sense of fear, embarrassment or even happiness - a condition which makes her sadly prone to accidental scandal. Dora's only goal for the London Season this year is to stay quiet and avoid upsetting her cousin's chances at a husband. But when the Lord Sorcier of England learns of her condition, she finds herself drawn ever more deeply into the tumultuous concerns of magicians and faeries.

Bridgerton meets Howl's Moving Castle in this enchanting historical fantasy romance, where the only thing more meddlesome than faeries is a marriage-minded mother.

This audiobook includes a bonus short story.

Critic Reviews

"A hugely enjoyable take on the Regency.... I wolfed this down with great pleasure." (KJ Charles)

"I've read these books more times than I can count. Atwater's stubborn, quietly radical characters defy the expectations of both society and fairy tales as they blaze new paths towards love and decency. Smart and subversive, these charming romances will ignite your heart - and your hope." (Shelley Parker-Chan, author of She Who Became the Sun

"Whimsical, witty, and brimming over with charm.... Dora and the Lord Sorcier have a place amongst my favourite fantasy romance couples ever." (India Holton, author of The Wisteria Society of Lady Scoundrels)

An original and compelling story

I read this story last year so was excited about listening to the audiobook. I’m sure many people who’ve previously read an audiobook experience a slight jolt when a narrator sounds very different to the voice(s) of the character(s) that they originally envisioned but still loose themselves to the story. It’s a shame however when the voice is so different that it pulls you out of the story and this is what I found for the accent the narrator gave to the Lord Sorciere, Elias. It irritated to the point where I got annoyed whenever his dialogue was present. Such a shame as the story really is wonderful

loved it

when I picked this one I wasn't entirely sure whether it would be any good or not, but I ended up really loving it. kind of austen-ish with some magic thrown in. surprisingly romantic & very addictive to listen to.

Loved it

Haven't read anything from this author as yet, so I went in without much expectations.

I loved the tale, and was hooked from the beginning. I also found the dialogue humorous, and loved the dynamics between the characters. The narrator was fantastic, and did the book justice. I'm looking forward to listening to the second book.

I would highly recommend this book if you're sceptical. It kept me entertained throughout.
