Publisher's Summary

Simon Fitzgerald's nephew James Tremont is in a predicament. He's inherited a run-down estate, a house full of eccentric relatives who are depending on him for support, and a bank account that has plunged into the red. The answer to his financial woes arrives in the oh-so-common person of Archie Campbell, a wealthy man who wants to give James a helping hand. But Archie's money comes with a stipulation. James must marry Archie's daughter Amanda, and he must do so without letting the young lady know she is entering into an arranged marriage. Thus James is pulled into a web of deceit, a lie that will come back to haunt him and endanger the very thing that means more to him than life itself.

This book COULD have been great but, yet again, narration has let it down. It sounded like it was recorded in an empty room by a narrator who mispronounced so many words that she should be stopped from EVER EVER doing another book. (I notice she narrated Book 3 which had similar comments).

So please, please, please authors/publishers/Audible take note that the choice of a narrator for your book is so IMPORTANT to us listeners as they can either make or break a book so just spend a few measly minutes actually listening to the book yourselves and you will soon see what we have been subjected to by your obvious lack of attention to detail. What is the point of spending months and months writing a good book only to have it slaughtered in this way.

However, (I'm calmer now I've got that out of my system) the story was a good stand alone listen with some funny interesting characters who get involved in a fated marriage when the bride is told the groom only married her for her dowry (ooops) which stops the wedding night festivities because she thought they were marrying for love (ahhhh).

Worth a credit? Well it could have been, and may even have earned a worthy 5 stars (oh no here I go again - sorry) if it was narrated by any of the usual historical romance crew but Ms Bartlett's fault filled rendition has made it an unbearable listen - so that would be an unfortunate NO from me.

If someone with a speech disability read and I mean no offense they would be better than this idiotic Tanya. She read book 3 and an hour in I found myself just wanting to vomit. They taped this in an echoing room and her voice is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo bad - she pauses in bad places it makes it hard to understand. They should never EVER allow her to voice over anything ever again.

Nice final story of the series

I listened to this book as it was the last in the series but really struggled with the narrator. Her mispronounciation was so frustrating in this book and the previous in the series.

Story good But

I found this recording had an annoying background noise that detracted from the overall story. I was also very frustrated at the manny words that were mispronounce. It drives me balmy when those that have chosen to be narrators cannot annunciate words correctly. It's a good story and if you can get past these annoyances then buy it but if you can don't bother. I personally will not re-listen to this story
