Chelynne will go to any lengths to ignite her husband’s passion and save their marriage. But when she finally goes too far, the Earl must share his dark secret before Chelynne loses her reputation - or worse, her life.
Set during the English Restoration, Chelynne is filled with political conspiracies, family secrets, and shocking affairs, creating a deliciously complicated plot. Fans of Virgin River will love this historical novel written with Robyn's trademark zest for life.
Robyn Carr is the New York Times and USA Today best-selling author of the Virgin River series, published by Mira. Chelynne is the first of her nine historical novels, which will be reissued as digital editions in the coming months.

A Good Book RUINED
Robyn Carr is a very talented writer who can depict characters in such a way as we feel empathy even if they are unlikable. The storyline was on point for the genre even though there were parts that I felt I had heard elsewhere. Altogether a most enjoyable book - absolutely ruined by the narrator.
I think that Robyn Carr has done an excellent job with the language of the day but Alison Larkin destroyed it. She had two female voices. The first was a silly little girl and the second was an embarrassing attempt at a temptress. She also had two mail voice. One was a quivering old man and the second was a quivering old man with a dirty mind. It was very hard to take the heroes seriously. I appreciate it very much when a narrator takes the time to perhaps read a piece before recording it so they can develop an understanding of what the author is trying to say, especially with dialogue. I got the feeling that Alison's narration was the first time she had put her eyes to the page. A lot of what she recited was an inaccurate portrayal of the scene. I found I was correcting her as I listened most of the time and this certainly detracted from the listen.
I love Robyn Carr books - all of them - but I hope she never uses Alison Larkin again.

EXCELLENT ROBYN CARR
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
No, I really like the story, but the reader was terrible
What other book might you compare Chelynne to and why?
I have heard a story almost like this one by another author
Would you be willing to try another one of Alison Larkin’s performances?
Do you think Chelynne needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
Maybe with a different reader
Any additional comments?
The reader read so fast that the whole book was as one word. No pause at sentence end, no definition or emphasis. Very dull.
