Listener Opinions

    " An entertaining book to be sure. The heroine was a bit frustrating but she was very young and thus had not learned to be wise. The scrapes she got herself into were hilarious. I rather enjoy Georgette Heyer's books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Serena | 2/17/2014

    " Definitely an adorable heroine. I enjoyed the book a lot, especially with the pacing and the character interaction. It was just missing something . . . I felt a slight lack of connection between myself and the main characters that I kept expecting to occur, but never did. Still a fun read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer Nennifer | 1/30/2014

    " Georgette is the queen of "regency" romances, though she has written books that are earlier than regency, and some that are almost farces. Her dialog is fantastic, her grasp of the period (and the slang) is amazing. I like some a lot better than others, but worth reading all of them. "

    " Only 2* - because Heyer has done a lot better - not because I wasn't entertained. I always enjoy her cauldron-mix of humor/fiesty characters/regency setting/love. I got a laugh out of Horatia, her name and her stutter (I listened to the audiobook version, and Horatia made a lot of work for the reader!). There was the usual mix of characters - the Bad Boy who is actually good, the innocent but precocious heroine, the bumbling yet chivalrous friend, and the Really Bad Man who needs to be taught a lesson. Even though I am sometimes weary of the stereotypical Heyer characters, there is a spark about them that keeps me coming back for more. And I do like the way she tangles everything up and puts everything in wilder and wilder chaos - reminds me of Bertie Wooster in P.G. Wodehouse's wonderful books - or even Henry Fielding's Tom Jones, where the snarl is so extensive you can't imagine how it will sort itself, even though you know it will. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fluffychick | 1/19/2014

    " Not the greatest story and the heroine is intensely annoying, but fabulous having another 5 hours of Richard Armitage! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 April | 1/15/2014

    " This one had a very clever and intriguing hero but the heroine grated on my nerves too much for true enjoyment. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jane | 1/10/2014

    " Great as all Georgette Heyer nove;s are "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachelle Wells | 1/5/2014

    " Classic Georgette Heyer! Nothing that stands out about it, and in some parts you can tell it's one of her earlier books, but absolutely a great read for any Heyer devotee. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth Earl | 11/28/2013

    " So far this book is boring me...I may give it up soon. It ended better than I expected it to, but I don't know if I'll read another by this author "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lexi | 11/19/2013

    " Silly, light historical romance. Padded with confusing subplots and the overly-effusive language of the 1770s. Entertaining. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alissa | 11/6/2013

    " A very funny, great Regency romance. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephanie | 11/6/2013

    " Kind of slow to get going, but the ending is WELL worth it! The scrapes the heroine gets into are laugh-out-loud funny. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lorrie | 7/5/2013

    " The main heroine was an idiot. I wanted to like her but no one can be that naive. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caroline | 6/25/2013

    " Lord Rule is my favorite Heyer gentleman. Look out, Mr. Knightley. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth | 5/1/2013

    " Not a fan of Heyer's. But Richard Armitage could read the phone book and make it sound engaging, so three stars from me haha "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 meeners | 10/2/2012

    " all the tropes are familiar ones, but i cannot resist a marriage of convenience story! i don't know what's wrong with me. p.s. the minor characters really steal the show in this one, as in many of her others! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daela | 8/22/2012

    " Georgette Heyer is the next best thing to Jane Austen. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Old | 3/9/2012

    " I didn't realize how dated Georgette Heyer is. This was a simple romance with a silly story. Light reading to finish in just a few hours. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Are | 8/13/2011

    " The heroine was a little to silly for my tastes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Darkpool | 7/31/2011

    " Utterly charming, and aggravating enough to have me shouting at the characters when they were being particularly silly. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caroline | 5/12/2011

    " Lord Rule is my favorite Heyer gentleman. Look out, Mr. Knightley. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diana | 5/6/2011

    " 3 1/2 stars. A fun little period romance. Easy to read and mostly predictable but still enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 4/30/2011

    " One of Heyer's earlier books (I believe) and quite amusing. I especially enjoyed the Viscount and his friends and the crazy situations in which Horry and etc. find themselves. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 dreamsofthings | 4/17/2011

    " I thought the girl was kind of a brat, and the guy had a mean streak. The story itself isn't bad, and I actually enjoyed all the secondary characters. They were the best part, now that I think about it, especially Horatia's brother. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gwyn | 4/3/2011

    " The humor in this book made me chuckle out loud. The antics of the heroine are charming. One of my favorite historicals in a while. I am so glad that I was introduced to Heyer recently. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandra | 3/21/2011

    " Listening to the audiobook, read by Richard Armitage... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lorraine | 3/9/2011

    " I absolutely adored this book! After I got past the first two chapters and got all the characters memorized, the rest of the book proved to be a joyride. So funny and lively! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Babete | 3/6/2011

    " Um romance muito divertido! ( Uma Mulher Apaixonada ) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 AnneMarie | 3/4/2011

    " My very all-time favorite Georgette Heyer Regency!!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Manuela | 3/3/2011

    " Ben scritto, con stile e classe che ricordano Jane Austen, ma la mancanza di passione e sentimenti forti lo rendono un romance troppo atipico per i miei gusti.
