Publisher's Summary

For seven long years, Lady Cassandra Monroe has waited for the man of her dreams to return from the war. Unfortunately, he happens to be engaged to her flighty cousin. When he mistakes Cass for Patience Bunbury, a fictitious friend her cousin has invented to escape social obligations - even with her future husband - Cass thinks this is her chance.
After defeating Napoleon at Waterloo, Captain Julian Swift is not quite ready to settle down and enter into his unwanted arranged marriage. Patience Bunbury is witty, independent, passionate, and, unbeknownst to him, the cousin of his current fiancée. When the truth about Cass comes out, will he surrender his heart to a woman who really is too good to be true?

Honorable War Hero Even When Impassioned

I just finished listening to The Accidental Countess, the 2nd book in the Playful Brides series written by Valerie Bowman and narrated by Allison Larkin. There is a lot of misunderstanding between the two main characters, who have been corresponding with each other for seven years. Through their letters, both have fallen in love with the other. But, each feels that the other is either betrothed or in love with someone else. I really enjoyed the three best friends and their banter is what I imagine Jane Austen and her sister and friend might have enjoyed. :) I can't wait for the next Playdul Bride story!

Too ridiculous

Good lord, this was silly. I thought the concocted story that the ladies carried out was ludicrous. They aren't middle school kids!!

The story improved somewhat when the secret was revealed.

Narration was okay.
