Publisher's Summary

Hugh Dunne, the Earl of Briarly, needs a wife - so his sister hands him a list of the very best young ladies on the market. And then, because he refuses to tear himself away from the stables where he trains Arabian racehorses, she invites all those ladies to a house party, along with some other bachelors, of course. 

So who will Hugh choose? The Botticelli-esque, enchanting Gwendolyn? The outspoken, delightful Katherine? If he doesn't work fast, he'll lose those ladies to his closest friends, and then where will he look for a wife? Perhaps, just perhaps, toward a lady who's not on a market at all, and would require a great deal of persuading....

Light relief.

Theses are short stories with really no depth to them, but enjoyable none the less.
I enjoyed the first story the best, the second was just a statement, then the third told a tale.
The redeeming character was the sister and her husband, the other secondary characters filled in the gaps.

Highly entertaining

Set at a house party where the Earl of Brialy is going to choose a wife. He has his sister make a list of names of the most eligible women and invited them to the party. Unfortunately for him, each woman is gradually “picked off” by one of his friends before he can make his choice….or so it seems. This is a really enjoyable book, you wouldn’t know it had been written by three different authors, each author writes about a different couple. The writing is so seamless. I absolutely love listening to this book, the narrator is wonderful.

Very entertaining

I thoroughly enjoyed the historical introduction that assisted in my understanding of the main characters, early life and their connection to each other.
I found that I was unable to put the story away once I began listening.
Love the clear and vivid descriptions. It was easier to visualise.

very dull

this was an absolute effort to finish. it's set at an 1800th century house party with three different couples that fall in love.... but that's it. there's no obstacles for these couples, no back story's, all the characters but one of the women (Gwen) are very basic and 2D. it's just an absolute effort to get through it.

Great fun 💝💝💙

For newlyweds and newly betrothed. Entertaining, and better put together than some stories in the series.

Romantic escapism

I ate this up. Was a great story. A true bit of escapism that left me laughing and stopping in my tracks in anticipation to what would happen next.
Rosalyn Landor is a great narrator and and I also find the novels more enjoyable for the smooth and easy way the story is read.

Too pedictable for my taste

A classical historical romance but a little too predictable and formulaic in content for my taste. The characterisations were a little flat and some of the descriptions rather laboured. One good point was the performance . The reading was flawless

A bit of fun - if you can endure the narration

You will have to suspend your modern day rational thinking about how relationships develop into marriage. I guess with any such novels of this period genre it's a given.

That said, the writing styles of the 3 contributing authors are complementary and make for seamless storytelling. It's nice to see the characters matched with partners best suited to their personalities.

Unfortunately, it often felt as if the narrator had recorded her lines by sentence rather than whole paragraphs with appropriate intonnation, so it sounded like she was making statements rather than telling a story. I had to tweak the speed of the narration at times to make it less distracting.

Not bad

Not the narrators best performance, but still amazing. The story line for me was a bit all over the place. Didn't enjoy it as much as the other Series.
