Publisher's Summary

The traditional Regency classic from New York Times best-seller Loretta Chase is back.…
A comedy of manners…
Her father’s prodigal ways have forced the extremely lovely Alexandra Ashmore into an engagement with a strange man in a strange land: a man blind to the effect her unearthly beauty has on other men, and which has earned her the title "the English Witch"! So when she’s kidnapped by another love-struck suitor, Alexandra assumes she’s truly doomed to a loveless marriage with her captor.
A villain redeemed…
But her troubles have only begun - for although she's quickly rescued, her brave "hero" is the notoriously irresistible, unrepentant scoundrel Basil Trevelyan, who finds himself quite taken with the tart, spirited Alexandra. So taken, in fact, that he’s determined to make her his own. Now, if he can only charm her into agreeing with his plan!

The English Witch

I like reading early books by successful authors. The stories have bright nuggets of things that make us enjoy the later books.

This story is comfortably predictable, and good for relaxing with a cup of very English tea.

A Charming Romp

After reading Isabella I looked forward to reading this second entry in the series. Starting in Armenia with a vague archeologist and his bewitching daughter we travel with them back to England accompanied by a handsome rake . Multiple engagements, one kidnapping, a couple of elopements and lots of lords and ladies keep the tangled plot moving. The dialogue is great fun and kept a smile on my face all the way through.

A delightful, witty, humorous story

Very enjoyable, sympathetic, humorous, in the best tradition of the picaresque novel; it winks to many of the English classics of the eighteen and nineteen century.

bad echo in the recording

Good performance, good book but the echo and background noise of the recording drove me nuts !! I wish they fixed it, it spoils a good book!!

Sweet romance

This was a lovely way to complete a craft project. I listened, enjoyed and knitted. I had some issues with words being pronounced incorrectly. I also think that the room this was recorded in should have had some soft furnishings to make it sound less like it was recorded in a bathroom.
A sweet romance, ideal for a lazy afternoon.
