Publisher's Summary

Forced by bankruptcy and scandal into exile in France, Lord Waverly expects never to return to his homeland until, staggering home from a gaming hell in the wee hours of the morning, he encounters a young novice escaping from a convent. When she asks him to take her to England, promising him that her English grandfather will reward him handsomely for her safe conveyance, Waverly reluctantly agrees.
Alas, Waverly soon realizes the enormity of his task. When he delivers the irrepressible Lisette to her grandfather's home only to discover that the old man is dead, Waverly is left with no alternative but to offer her the protection of his name. And when he is unexpectedly reunited with the woman whose marriage precipitated his flight to France, Waverly begins to discover that his marriage of convenience is likely to prove very inconvenient indeed....

Lord Waverly redeemed

I was afraid I wouldn't like this last installment in the Weaver trilogy. (The detestable Lord Waverly as the hero? My beloved Brundys facing marital troubles? GASP!) But to my relief, I enjoyed it immensely.

The plot hinges on a big (make that MASSIVE) misunderstanding between Sir Ethan and Lady Helen. Maddeningly vague conversations make each party believe they're discussing something entirely different. (Yes, I wanted to tear my hair out at a few of them!)

The author used this trope to weave her two storylines together and to subtly bring each character to a realization of what they truly loved and valued.

She even redeemed Lord Waverly! He slowly grew into the honor and compassion he never knew he had.

Such an innocent heroine

Really enjoyed the book and although a short story it had very well developed characters. Only negative was the speed at which the narrator read the story. He is excellent with accents and did a good job which would have been an excellent job had he just slooooooowed down

Loved it!!!!

Any additional comments?

We meet other characters from the weaver takes a wife, but you don't have to read the other books since you are told what happens in part of it due to Lord Waverly action four years ago.
I found the book to be really funny and it reminded me of Georgette Heyer's books.
I did find Lord Waverly to be immature at times and I wanted to strangle him in certain areas of the book. However, I really like the main female character Lisette. The author shows us her naivety, her determination and quick thinking.

I would highly recommend this to all since it is a clean read.

I have not listened to this narrator before and It took me a while to get used to his voice but as the story progressed I realised he suited the book and I wouldn't mind listening to his other works.
