Publisher's Summary

Desperation has led Anne-Sophia Duncombe to a life of exile. Still, she is always just one mistake away from capture and a marriage she would rather die than endure. As a last resort to remain hidden from her former life, Sophia attempts a radical scheme: a life of humility and disguise. Rumor has it that Wilhelm Montegue, the Earl of Devon, is insane. A tormented war hero haunted by scandal, he is only tolerated because of his brilliant mind and swarthy good looks. His unmentionable "condition," which keeps him confined to his country home, is also the source of his talent for composing music. When a new housemaid is hired at Rougemont, Lord Devon is perplexed to find himself fascinated by her. He knows the exquisite beauty is keeping secrets but her siren's voice draws him ever closer, and he can't resist the intoxicating scent of danger surrounding her.

There were parts I enjoyed BUT…

A savant hero at 35, a heroine who was a couple of years younger?? beautiful, smart, and much too willing to play a courtesan or any other role given to her by the hero. Supposedly well bread and raised by the Ton’s standards, she was waaaaay too easy in accepting of her commanded roles and any inappropriate behavior in other people’s presence. In addition, though their behavior very inappropriate in social circumstances, others did not refuse to associate with them which is unlikely behavior for their time. The story was just odd. There was no suspension in their romance, characters were a bit flat, story unbelievable for their time as far as acceptability by the society as well as those employed at the house and much more. The author also could have dedicated a bit more time showing the heroine’s struggles with the rest of the staff after she goes from the maid to supposedly the lord of the house’s mistress. This is not something they could have kept quiet and yet he easily introduced her as his aunt’s cousin when the talk of it should have already been spread like wildfire. Unbelievable again!!! They hero and heroine got together without much fuss or resistance on her part for advances made so quickly after their agreement and the only issue apparent was sex and her monster of a father. A bit disappointing but I did try to finish the book. I will definitely not purchase the next book in the series if this one is an indication of how the next book will be.

Worth Listening too!

Where does Song for Sophia rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Yes, loved the storyline


Who was your favorite character and why?

Sophia and Will - Sophia's character reminded me of another book (The Lion's Lady-Christina), but Sophia had a dark passed. I like how the author did not dwell in her past too much. Will was a very interesting character, I really felt sorry him for all the bad scared he had experienced in his life


Which scene was your favorite?

I loved how Sophia commended the trained dogs to attack. The ending was so entertaining I didn't know it was going to end.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, it was fine in one sitting.


Any additional comments?

I would love to see a movie out of this story.
