Publisher's Summary

Who would make a better fiancée in a pinch - An actress? A shopkeeper? Or a school teacher?
Damion Templeton, Viscount Woodhurst, has 14 days to find a fiancée. It's the least he can do to make his dying grandmother happy. Of course, she doesn't need to know it's a temporary ruse. An actress should do nicely.
Miss Alix Adams falls off the wall of the local school while rescuing her young student from a tree. Damion rides by, and the curtain of fate rises on a new stage plan.
Secret Bride is the story of a young lady who makes a deal with a stranger. Because when you're penniless and an orphan, money can be so tempting.

A wonderful romantic adventure!

Any additional comments?

Secret Bride written by Sharol Louise is a witty, light hearted romance story. It follows Damion who suddenly needs to find a fiancé after receiving a letter from his Grandmother that she will has fallen ill and will be stopping by to see him in the next couple weeks. Damien wishes to please his dying Grandmother and sets out to find, and possibly hire, a fake fiancé.

This story was narrated by the talented Doro Jillings. As a narrator she has great delivery and charisma in her storytelling which brings out rich and vibrant characters. The audio quality itself is about average with some occasional background inconsistencies. it should be noted the inconsistencies did not detract from the listening experience whatsoever. Overall Doro handles male to female dialogue smoothly and discernibly leading to a fun and noteworthy performance.

Alix agrees to play the part after after Damion compromises and allows Alix to bring Elizabeth along, an orphan who eventually falls into line as her alleged sister. Alix and Elizabeth are off on their new adventure before they know it!. Alix is immediately accepted by some and rejected by others. She is filled with compassion and personality! She is a loving and intelligent character who has one of the biggest hearts imaginable.

I would like to note that the author does a fantastic job dealing with some scummy unlikely characters in a tasteful and just way... and of course.. love always finds a way! This audiobook comes in at Just under 8 hours and could easily turn a dull weekend into an exciting romantic adventure. Romance lovers don’t let this slip by.

Entertaining plot

What did you like best about this story?

The concept of this book was amusing, with well-defined characters

Which scene did you most enjoy?

I liked the scene with the protagonist stuck on a wall, unwittingly meeting her beau for the first time.

Any additional comments?

As yet I have only listened to the first third of this book so I will only comment thus far. The story up to that point has flowed well and I LOVED the intial few chapters. The characters have developed nicely and I found it easy to imagine the scenes and interactions. An entertaining romance and I found myself rooting for the leading lady and man. Well narrated.

Romantic, fun, easy to read - don't miss this one!

Where does Secret Bride rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is my first experience of an audiobook and I was smitten! The content of the story - so beautifully narrated by Doro Jillings - is a wonderful mix of romance, humour and intrigue! I listened to the whole story in one sitting on a rainy day which is unusal for me but I genuinely couldn't put it down!

Who was your favorite character and why?

The gradnmother because of her wile!

Any additional comments?

Please listen to this story. You won't regret it!

Utterly delightful

A truely lovely clean regency romance in the best tradition of Georgette Heyer. But keep the tissues on hand because it's also a tear jerker!
Please release more of this author's work Audible.
