Publisher's Summary

It's 1763. Career diplomat Alec Halsey returns to London and the shocking news his estranged elder brother, the Earl of Delvin, has not only killed his friend in a duel but become engaged to the woman he had hoped to marry.
When Alec reluctantly attends a weekend house party to celebrate his brother's engagement, he gets more than he bargained for when a lady's maid is murdered, the bride-to-be is attacked, and a guest is shot dead. Alec uncovers a connection between these sinister acts and his brother's duel. He must also confront a cruel twist of fate that explains why his brother loathes him and will go to any lengths to discredit him in Polite Society.

Wonderful historical mystery!

What did you love best about Deadly Engagement?

Everything- love the storyline, character development AND Alex Wyndham's wonderful narration.


Who was your favorite character and why?

I love Alec's Uncle Plantagenet & his godmother Olivia, as well as Alec himself. All of the characters are so well done that I forget I'm listening to one person.


Have you listened to any of Alex Wyndham’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, but he's definitely now on my favorite narrators list!


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Both- I became emotionally invested in the characters. Lucinda Brant does a great job of not only tying up all the threads of the story but also throwing in humor and surprises.


Any additional comments?

I love it when you get a triple play: great author, intriguing storyline & wonderful narration. I'm hooked- please keep more Alec Halsey books coming Ms.Brant!

Well written but a little darker than I expected

The hero and heroine are both strong figures and I enjoyed their story. Story shows a very dark side of many types of people. It was well written and the narrator was very good. Just a bit too dark for me currently. I enjoyed Autumn Countess by same author. Very intelligent writing no matter historical romance or historical mystery romance.
