Great book and awesome narration..

Bride of Falcon by Collette Cameron
The varying characteristics voiced by the narrator.
I liked that they each felt unrequited love for the other... no idea that the other returned their feelings just as sincerely.
BRIDE OF FALCON, the second novella in Collette Cameron's A Waltz with a Rogue series features Ivonne "Ivy" Wimpleton, the younger sister of Allen Wimpleton from the first novella in the series, A Kiss for Miss Kingsley. Ivy has been in love with her brother's friend, Chancy "Falcon" Faulkenhurst since she was a young girl. He went to India to work six years ago when she was only fifteen and has finally came back to England. She's had many suitors, but none she's interested in mostly because she's never gotten over her hope that Falcon returns her feelings.
There was a lot going on in this second chance love story. One of Ivy's suitors, the most repugnant of them all is quite aggressive, and causes trouble as her rejection disrupts his plans. Chance is back, but he's not the same man and isn't sure any woman will want him. There's the usual nattering gossips who are more than happy to spread rumors whether or not they are true. The biggest hindrance to their love seems to be their own insecurities and misunderstandings. Even Prinny gets into the mix. At last, true love prevails and this young couple are free to declare themselves. Sweet story and likable characters. 4 stars
*I listened to the audiobook version and was impressed with the narrator's ability to give individual voices to each of the varying characters.
