It wasn’t a bad book, it just didn’t capture my attention in any way at all. In fact, I couldnt finish it. Again, not because it was bad, it just was blah I guess. RL did a fantastic job, as usual, and is the reason I got as far as I did.

I thought this book was an entertaining Historical Romance and the kind of book that you should read when you need a diverting bit of fun. Its definitely not a detailed historical novel or a knight in shining armor adventure but this one is charming, has silly action, and humor. Rosalyn Landor narrates this book wonderfully. She is always consistently good.
Note: This book does have some sexual situations and adult conversations.
There was one chapter that Audible will need to fix. The audio skips repeatedly......I believe it was in chapter 25. I hope they fix this issue soon because it is distracting.
If you are in need of some lighthearted, silly, entertaining fun give this book a try.
I was given this book by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost for my honest and unbiased review.

The wonderful narration by Rosalyn Landor definitely rated 5* as always, however the content rated only 3*. It had potential; a returning soldier - promoted by default to a dukedom and who has lost a leg in the peninsula wars and an unusual girl; unorthodox, apparently unmarriageable with wild, bright red hair and a passion for archaeology. The premise interested me but I was disappointed as at times the story descended into the farcical and I found it difficult to concentrate. The talented Rosalyn Landor did her best but the unbelievable storyline let it down overall.

This is a very typical example of its genre but with a couple of great twists. It has an intelligent heroine who learns that taking risks creates unexpected benefits but also loads of trouble. Finding the balance between excitement and the mundane is pretty much what most of us do. So it is a story that we can relate to while enjoying the fantasy of castles and dukes.
