Publisher's Summary

At 30 years of age, Susan Jennings has long been considered a spinster. Exceptionally intelligent, she has little tolerance for London and the dreaded Season - if that’s how one is expected to find love, it’s not for her. But when an invitation arrives that cannot be ignored, Susan leaves her comfortable life in the country and enters the fashion and frivolity she most despises. She quickly discovers, however, that there is more to loathe in London - and his name is George Kendall. 

George, Duke of Aylesham, has learned to keep his distance from cloying females chasing the title of duchess. Susan Jennings, however, proves an entirely different challenge - a woman who has pushed him to the limit of his patience with their every encounter. But their simmering hostility is disrupted by a thoughtless slipup: to avoid a marriage of political strategy, George claims he is already betrothed. And when pressed for the name of the lucky woman, only one name comes to mind: Susan’s. Their forced betrothal proves advantageous, but when their verbal sparring must change in order to be convincing, the line between fact and fiction becomes blurred by something neither expected: love.

Clean regency romance, with a hint of marriage of convenience

The story was a great clean regency romance, with a little bit of the feel of a marriage of convenience story. While the characters were not married, they were actually thrown into and engagement of convenience. If you like the steamy sex scenes, this is not for you. However, if you enjoy the clean regency romance, like me, this is a great book to curl up with. I enjoyed the characters, the premise, and the history.

Such A Delight!

What a story! I’ve been telling everyone of my family that they truly must read this book and, if possible, listen to the audible version as well. I absolutely laughed out loud as I began to listen to this driving home from my daughter’s house. I knew immediately this was going to be a winner. George and Susan are delightful. Honestly! …and so romantic! I love Susan‘s family and I loved so many of the supporting characters. Ultimately I just really love this book and highly, highly recommend it.

The audible narration was totally spot on as well!

Credit wasted

Story flows too slow spending too much time on politics and unneccessary dialogs. At times boring. Terrible narration. Placing emphasize at wrong words for dramatic effects that are not needed. Spend your credit on something more enjoyable.

Pleasant historical romance.

Pleasant romantic historical fiction story. Not wildly original in theme, but entertaining nonetheless. I liked the main characters. Narration is very good and adds to the overall quality of this Audible book. In general, I enjoyed it.

Like Opening a Treat!

I truly enjoyed beginning this book with frustration at the incorrect judgments thrown at each other, by George and Susan, then watching so comically as their opinions quickly changed through actual association. It was like watching someone dislike a book by looking at its cover, then being forced to read it and see the change in their attitude as they laugh, growl, and cheer throughout the story they initially rejected. I loved the dialogue, and the storyline, and the characters... especially the loveable "Fairy Godmother" and her butler. I would recommend this to all readers who look for clean romantic stories without swearing, or sexual innuendos making romance cheap. I would go so far as to compare Karen Tuft's writing with Jane Austen's style of wording the dialogue in such a way that leaves the true humor and subtle interpretations to the reader, without having to needlessly explain. It feels like reading on deeper levels somehow. 👍

An enjoyable story but a few things niged at me.

I liked the twist of the storyline. Quite imaginative. Narration was good, although in the begining I had some issues. Knew narrator was American from the get-go. Also was irritated by the overusage of some gramital terms and names. I felt they were used to add loftiness when not needed often. Will be listening to another though. Hoping to not experience the same issues on the next book.
