Publisher's Summary

Lady Amelia has only known the comfort of life in mid-18th-century English aristocracy. But when her father dies, she finds herself alone, grief stricken and not of age. Her appointed guardian, an American uncle, has ordered her to relocate to America where she must remain until she comes of age.
With the help of Grace and Sarah, Amelia gets her uncle to agree to give her four weeks to settle her affairs and unbeknownst to him...find an English lord to marry. Despite her mourning period she endeavors to trap one of London's eligible bachelors in matrimony so she can remain in her beloved England.
The Duke of Goldstone is devilishly handsome, but a Scottish duke is entirely unacceptable as a possible husband. After all, Scotland is not her beloved England. He has a nasty habit of showing up at all the wrong moments and thwarting her carefully laid plans to ensnare a suitable husband. Sparks fly as the pair find themselves at odds with each other and drawn to each other at the same time. Can they find a way to stop arguing long enough to explore their growing passion?

Cute Story. Decent Narration

This was a cute story, I enjoyed it. I liked all the characters. The heroine was strong, witty and smart. The hero was handsome and smart, the two had some good chemistry together.

The story line and plot were good. Nothing mysterious or any villains. Just a cute regency romance story. It wasn't full of angst, which I liked. She needed a husband to stay in England and was on a mission. There was lots of dialogue throughout the book.

As for the narration, it was good. Stevie Zimmerman is getting better and better. The men sound like men and she does give everyone their own voice. She has a nice reading voice too.

Fun And Witty Regency Romance!

Any additional comments?

The Audible version of Scandalous Endeavors by Amanda Mariel is a wonderful Regency romance that was both entertaining and very enjoyable. It's what I call "brain candy" - one can sit back, relax, and enjoy it without having to think too much about the plot or world issues.

The story centers around 19-year old Amelia whose father just died leaving her with only one surviving relative - an uncle who lives in America. Under the ruse of getting her affairs in order before departing to leave on a boat to her uncle's plantation, Amelia's best friend and an older family friend/chaperon devise a scheme for Amelia to trap a husband so she can stay in England. Their best laid plans are thwarted by Richard, the Scottish nephew of Amelia's chaperon. Having just narrowly escaped a similar trap, Richard quickly uncovers the scheme and he does everything within his power to save Amelia from herself.

I just love the relationship between Amelia and Richard as it is written beautifully and feels very genuine. They have a natural banter between them, much like I have with my husband of 25 years. Simply put, I can't wait for the next audiobook by Amanda Mariel!
