Finally, a Regency romance akin to those of the great Georgette Heyer. Sadly, the author of this book has passed away, but Audible.com listeners are now fortunate in that her work has been recently added to Audible's collection.
This is a charming story, well-timed and well-written with wit and humor. The characters are most engaging, the dialogue is excellent and the narration wonderful.
Some of the so called Regency romances I've listened to lately have been awfully dull with way too many sex scenes, not enough dialogue, modern characters completely out of step with Regency times, and badly in need of a good editor.

One review listed this author as a new Georgette Heyer, but I have to disagree. This heroin is so stupid! She continually thinks the worst of the hero, based on one person's report, and disregards the score of opposite reports from trustworthy people. And she still wants to believe the villain's version - even after he has kidnapped her! What!!????
And all the male characters are supposed to be immune to tears, but cave at the first sign of them.
Secondary female admits to being a gossip, but continually pouts and whines when her ability to keep a secret is questioned.
I forced myself to finish, but it wasn't a great read. Very sad, because there was potential here.
