Publisher's Summary

She woke up married
When Lady Georgette Thorold awoke she saw...her corset hanging from the armoire...a very handsome, very naked Scotsman lying beside her...and a wedding ring on her finger! Before the attractive stranger can tell her his name, Georgette does the only sensible thing - she runs for it.
Little does she know, James MacKenzie isn't clear on what happened the night before, either. All he knows is that his money is missing and the stunning woman who just ran from the room is either his wife or a thief...or possibly both.
What happens in Scotland when two complete strangers fall madly, deeply in love?

AN ENTERTAINING RIOTOUS RIVETING HISTORICAL ROMP

Right from Chapter 1 this totally implausible and unrealistic listen set in 1842 drew me into a madcap, lighthearted, enjoyable and entertaining world where Georgette (suffering from total amnesia) woke up in tangled sheets next to a bare man and promptly ran out on him but James too later woke up and remembered nothing. As they separately tried to piece together the events that led them to a wedding ring and a trashed room (but for very different reasons), I found myself saying "oh, just one more Chapter" until the very end which was around 3.30 am (divorce papers now pending!!).

They slowly stumble across clues, whilst retracing their steps in the hope of finding each other and unravelling the truth, along the way they encounter some entertaining richly portrayed characters, adventure, fun, danger, family misunderstandings, regrets, attempted murder, passion, desire and love. As the storyline frantically twists and turns they each develop a totally misguided idea of one another and when they finally meet it's hard for them to trust one another but the mutual attraction is definitely there.

Worth a credit? YES a real fun listen set in a 24 hr time period and pure escapism at it's absolute best. A new author but I'll definitely be looking out for more of her books in the future.

- CAROLYN "I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again"

Painfully slow paced...

I really wasn't impressed by this audiobook. It was just soooo slow. Just to give you an idea the whole story takes place in a 24 hour timeframe and this book is over 10 hours long. The first 5 hours of the story is just Georgette and James looking for each other after a night of drunken madness. Somehow by the magic of storytelling they manage to marry and fall in love within just one day. I really have issues with a story where I Love yous are exchanged within 24 hours. It's just not believable. At least the narrator was very good and I really liked her Scottish accent.
