Publisher's Summary

Miss Amity Doncaster, world traveler, is accustomed to adventure and risk. Benedict Stanbridge, a man of science and a spy for the Crown, has faced danger in the darker corners of foreign lands. But they are about to face a threat that is shockingly close to home . . . One does not expect to be kidnapped on a London street in broad daylight. But Amity Doncaster barely escapes with her life after she is trapped in a carriage with a blade-wielding man in a black silk mask who whispers the most vile taunts and threats into her ear.
Her quick thinking, and her secret weapon, save her … for now. But the monster known in the press as the Bridegroom, who has left a trail of female victims in his wake, has survived the wounds she inflicts and will soon be on his feet again.
He is unwholesomely obsessed by her scandalous connection to Benedict Stanbridge - gossip about their hours alone in a ship’s stateroom seems to have crossed the Atlantic faster than any sailing vessel could. Benedict refuses to let this resourceful, daring woman suffer for her romantic link to him - as tenuous as it may be.
For a man and woman so skilled at disappearing, so at home in the exotic reaches of the globe, escape is always an option. But each intends to end the Bridegroom’s reign of terror in London, and will join forces to do so. And as they prepare to confront an unbalanced criminal in the heart of the city they love, they must also face feelings that neither of them can run away from…

One of the Worst Narrations

Would you try another book from Amanda Quick and/or Louise Jane Underwood?

I'm a fan of Amanda Quick, but this narration was so bad, I couldn't get past the second chapter of listening.


How could the performance have been better?

The narrator barely changed her voice as the characters changed, so that sometimes I wasn't even sure which character was speaking. She made such long pauses between some sentences that I thought the chapter was over. Dreadful.


What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Sadness, anger (at having forked out money), and disappointment. I used to love B. Rosenblatt's performances of Amanda Quick's novels. They are among my favourites. This was a total letdown. So bad I had to give up.


Any additional comments?

Don't waste your time and money on this. Read the novel, but don't even think about listening to the audiobook.

Amanda Quick is Back!!!!

I was so hoping this book would bring me joy like The Paid Companion and the Lavinia and Tobias trilogy. It does that and more!! I loved this book. Great characters! Great story! I did not want it to end. The original Amanda Quick books started my love for historical romance and mystery, and this book reminded me of that love.
Worth waiting for. Now I want more!!
