Publisher's Summary

An arranged marriage, a choice to love, and the hope for happily ever after. This is a sweet and clean regency romance.

Rebecca Devon lives under the severe eye of her aunt and the iron will of her father. Though she wears what she is told and befriends the people they choose for her, she spends every moment longing to do as she wishes. Knowing freedom will only come through marriage, her hopes for a happy union are stolen away when her father arranges her marriage to a complete stranger.

Christian Hundley, Lord Easton, has learned the hard way that English society won't accept a person who looks or behaves differently than their ideal. He has hidden himself away from scornful eyes for years until his aging grandfather takes matters in hand and finds Christian a bride. Knowing he must agree to the marriage, Christian shields his heart. If the whole of society cannot accept him, why should his bride?

Rebecca knows she must have love in her life, but Christian is convinced there is nothing so fraught with danger and pain as entrusting one’s heart to another. Rebecca does everything she can to change his mind, but Christian is determined to remain aloof. 

Can an arranged marriage ever be anything other than a business partnership?

A tender and sweet love story!

I absolutely adore Rebecca Devon and Christian Hundley. Theirs is a love story that I wanted to devour but my time was limited that I slowly soaked it all in. I listened to the audiobook and really enjoyed the narrator. She did a great job with the characters as well as adding emotion into the different scenes of the book.

I had a lot happening in life that kept me pretty busy with very limited reading and listening time but I couldn't stop turning my thoughts to Rebecca and Christian. The sweet and tender scenes between these two, especially with their backgrounds kept drawing me in.

I loved the scenes with music in them. Especially when Christian finally played for Rebecca.

I loved Rebecca's spirit. She was being forced into a marriage she didn't want but she made her choice to make the most of the situation and find love and friendship with her future husband. Of course that doesn't play into his plans at all. These two and their interactions and walls and hurts and slow budding friendship is a must read for any Regency fan out there. *Happy Sigh*

Christian may not have wanted anyone to break down his barriers but he still was a good man and a true gentleman. I loved every time he made it abundantly clear that Rebeccas was to be his wife and that she had better be treated as such and that she was under his protection. Seriously, if you haven't read this one, do yourself a favor and read it now! I loved it! Probably my favorite book by Sally Britton. I say probably because I haven't read them all, but out of all the ones I've read and loved, this is up there at the top. And with how much I enjoyed it, it'll probably stay at the top even after reading and enjoying her other books.

Content: Clean

Happy Listening!!!

Story and Performance 5 Star!

This was a sweet, clean historical romance. The main characters were like able and I found myself wanting to be at the house party to see them. I enjoyed Miss Devon’s Choice very much.

The performance was excellent. I will be looking for more books performed by Kim Bretton. I am sure I have heard her before but cannot put my finger on the book titles right now.

Loved this clean regency romance

Sally Britton is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. Her stories completely entrance and transport me. Although I love the story, I was a little disappointed in the change in narrator. I had become used to how each character was portrayed and sometimes had to rewind to determine which character was speaking at times.

Great Historical Romance!

Great narrator! Fun storyline. I love a good, sassy heroine. Especially one who takes what she can't control and makes the best of what she can.

I love this series, and this author

This book is so unique, choosing to love, choosing to control what she can control without wasting energy regretting what she has no control over. Both the H and h are well written and very enjoyable to spend time with. I love that from the first they are honest with each other.

The narrator wasn’t my favorite; the main character voices were fine, but I don’t think I liked the way any of the supporting characters were portrayed. I got ages wrong, I felt the accents were too “low”, and at times was just kicked out of the story thinking “that’s not how I imagined that voice/emphasis/emotion.” Throw in a handful of mispronounced words and it’s probably not a book I will listen to again. I’ll stick to reading this one.

Narrator wrecks it.

I usually like Sally Britton Stories. Unfortunately this narrator wrecked it for me. She mispronounced irrevocably and several other easy words repeatedly. I hope Sally didn’t pay her for this shoddy job.

Did not care for the narration.

I found this somewhat disappointing after "the governess and Mr Gardiner" which I found specially well written and narrated. I prefer a narrator to tell the story, not impose their own interpretation of the story and characters on the listeners. One of the real joys of a book is forming your own ideas of how the characters act and speak, and that is taken away from you when a narrator, acts or performs the parts. It can also take away from the story. In places the narrator's pronunciation was very poor.

The prose and the narration were a bit too saccharine for my taste but the storyline is good.

Make Miss Devon's Choice your next choice

Miss Devon's choice is a fun addition to the Branches of Love series. The story is captivating, The narration is exceptionally done, adding depth and interest. The book catches up with the previous main characters of the series which is always enjoyable. Miss Devon's Choice could easily stand on it's own but knowing the other characters backstory definitely adds to the story.

I loved this book!

I LOVED this book! I cannot emphasise enough how much I have been enjoying Ms. Brittons novels - the entire series has been a delight to read & now I just love listening to them! I have found them to be thoroughly enjoyable.
If you have the opportunity, I highly recommend reading/listening to these books in order before this one, especially since nearly all of the characters from the previous stories come together again in this one. Plus, they’re so easy and enjoyable to listen to.
I did not want the story to end but I was not disappointed either since it ended happily & with the prospect of another story to come. I can hardly wait!
This is a completely clean novel/series. I would happily recommend it to anyone!

Beautiful, deep, touching - Highly Recommend

This is one of the best books I've ever read & it was very moving. Thank you!
The characters are realistic, deep & complex. A refreshing change to see the male character vulnerable but at the same time strong & masculine. The pain of his upbringing, the way he'd been treated unkindly by people and the lasting damage it had inflicted on him. The way Rebecca helped break down his barriers slowly with persistence, kindness, respect and love. It touched all the painful spots in his heart but in time soothed & helped to heal. Rebecca was cheerful & determined to make the best of a difficult situation.
The audio was good, especially Rebecca's voice. I did wish that Christian's voice had been deeper though as per the author's description.
