Publisher's Summary

England, 1819. The earl of Amhurst has returned to his estate in search of a wife and, more importantly, an heir. Simon Devere isn't interested in some comely, simpering creature. A beautiful woman brings only heartbreak and ruin, and Simon's disfigured visage is proof enough of that. No, he wants a wife who is unattractive and undesirable - and the homelier, the better.
But nothing about Lady Henrietta Beauchamp is homely. She is lovely and sweet and struggles to mix with polite society when she would so much rather have plants for company. And yet Simon is her only hope for keeping Plumburn Castle in her family's possession, even if it means marrying a man she doesn't love.
It's an impossible and unlikely match unless this awkward beauty can bring hope back into a solitary beast's life.

narrator horrible

Book is good, but the narrator sounds like the simmering young girls of the ton. I had to resort back to reading instead of listening. I couldn't get that blasted voice out of my head.

No Bargain

Moved very slowly and I didn't like the narrator. The story wasn't a good one. Don't waste your money on this.

Narrator dreadful

Where does The Earl's New Bride rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Bottom quarter I have to say.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The characters are very one dimensional. I have never listened to one of Frances Fowlkes books before. Very disappointed

What didn’t you like about Alison Larkin’s performance?

Her voice is false and unpleasant to listen to.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No not at all. Found most characters quite without interest.

Any additional comments?

Very very disappointing.
