Publisher's Summary

Lady Lydia Bedford-Browne's small rebellion becomes the adventure of her life when her coach crashes and leaves her stranded on the treacherous Dartmoor moorlands with the only other passenger: a rugged, disarmingly attractive Texan named Sam Cody. Sam's slow, melodic drawl and dark, hypnotic eyes tempt Lydia in ways she never thought possible. But dare a British lord's daughter loosen her proper English restraints any further? Foul luck has caused the dashing American millionaire Sam Cody to miss his own wedding to an unforgiving bride...for the second time! Worse still, he's stuck in the middle of nowhere with a straight-laced noble beauty. But there is an unmistakable spark of courage, sensuality, and wild passion beneath Liddy's prim exterior, daring Sam to pursue even further what his heart and his soul now desperately desire - even though both the Texan's and the lady's vastly different worlds will be rocked if they dare surrender to...indiscretion.
Judith Ivory's lush, lyrical romances have won multiple RITA awards and are highly praised by authors, including Amanda Quick.

Well-written Regency romance

I have to confess, I love Judith Ivory books, she is (IMHO) one of the best authors in the genre. In fact, I read this book in paper a few years back, so got it as an Audible book as I knew it would be a sure-thing (well-written, interesting characters). Sadly, I have to admit this is probably the weakest of the Ivory books I have read (check out Beast and Sleeping Beauty for the best), but that said, a medicore Ivory book still rises to the top of the historical romance titles.

The story is a little slow to start, and towards the end there is a "misunderstanding" to move the plot along (I find such devices overused in the genre, but Ivory handles it well). If you are looking for a well-written Regency romance, with a few touches of humour, and some memorable characters, then you cannot go wrong here.

And the narrator does well -- our hero is an American, and heroine a British aristrocrat. She keeps the accents straight, and adds to the telling of the story.

Overall - 4.5 stars.

This is one of the best romances I have listened to.
It is Nobility meets a Cowboy at its finest.

The narrator is one of the best I have heard, (even though you can hear her making strange noises, maybe swallowing?) Her changing from a southern drawl to an english accent is effortless, and accurate, and before you know it, you are hooked.

I do not normally leave reviews, but felt I needed to, I wanted to make sure there was another 5 stars added.
