Description

Forced by bankruptcy and scandal into exile in France, Lord Waverly expects never to return to his homeland until, staggering home from a gaming hell in the wee hours of the morning, he encounters a young novice escaping from a convent. When she asks him to take her to England, promising him that her English grandfather will reward him handsomely for her safe conveyance, Waverly reluctantly agrees.

Alas, Waverly soon realizes the enormity of his task. When he delivers the irrepressible Lisette to her grandfather's home only to discover that the old man is dead, Waverly is left with no alternative but to offer her the protection of his name. And when he is unexpectedly reunited with the woman whose marriage precipitated his flight to France, Waverly begins to discover that his marriage of convenience is likely to prove very inconvenient indeed....

Lord Waverly redeemed

I was afraid I wouldn't like this last installment in the Weaver trilogy. (The detestable Lord Waverly as the hero? My beloved Brundys facing marital troubles? GASP!) But to my relief, I enjoyed it immensely. The plot hinges on a big (make that MASSIVE) misunderstanding between Sir Ethan and Lady Helen. Maddeningly vague conversations make each party believe they're discussing something entirely different. (Yes, I wanted to tear my hair out at a few of them!) The author used this trope to weave her two storylines together and to subtly bring each character to a realization of what they truly loved and valued. She even redeemed Lord Waverly! He slowly grew into the honor and compassion he never knew he had.

Such an innocent heroine

Really enjoyed the book and although a short story it had very well developed characters. Only negative was the speed at which the narrator read the story. He is excellent with accents and did a good job which would have been an excellent job had he just slooooooowed down

This series just keeps getting better!

I listened to this book before books one and two but having done that, I now enjoy this story even more! Lord Waverly is front and center in this listen. He was Lady Helen's intended before Ethan Brundy came along in book one. In this book, Lord Waverly has fallen on bad times but manages to rescue a fleeing novice. Fun ensues. I liked Waverly's redemption but I liked more being able to experience a continuation of the Brundy's story. (I didn't appreciate it before.) There were misunderstandings aplenty but an HEA was had by all.

Another reason to GUSH about Author & Narrator

Yes, I absolutely adore author Sheri Cobb South. I love love love her writing style. There's humor, romance and great storytelling! I am always ready to recommend this author and her star narrators to family and friends! I can't seem to gush enough about this series. I love the characters I've come to know. Noah Michael Levine's performance does not disappoint. (I've decided my heart is big enough to be enamored with Ethan Brundy AND John Pickett. LOL) This is such a fabulous series. Do NOT hesitate to pick up any of Sheri Cobb South's books. You'll NEVER REGRET it. These stories are at the top of my list for listens again and again and again. (le sigh) Mature Content: no S, V or L

French Leave did not disappoint

I was a bit skeptical about listening this last book in the series because I did not care for the Earl of Beverley in the 1st book but it did not disappoint. Ethan was great as usual and the narrator was spectacular. Most of the time I don’t like female voices done by men but Mr Levine did a great job and the humor, French accent were on point.

Pretty good story

I enjoyed the story. It’s my least favorite of the series mostly because Waverly doesn’t seem to actually change in any way (become softer, nicer, etc) based on the prologue. I feel like his character development is non-existent. Besides that is strangely romantic some how (which also is confusing because I don’t like Waverly that much, and Lisette is sort of ditzy and too young for him //which is mentioned A LOT through the book// and yeah Waverly is sort of a jerk...) I do like the update we get on the Brundys but... I don’t like the whole revenge attempted cheating thing. It seemed weird that they lacked communication COMPLETELY. It didn’t feel this extreme in the past books.

Great narration, trouble with story

Audiobook - Narrator: Noah Michael Lavine A wonderful narration of the story although I did struggle with the heroine’s french accent. Often I didn’t realize she was speaking french until I’d rewound it a time or two so that problem wouldn’t have been there if I’d read rather than listened. However, I did get to re-enjoy this narrator’s amazing voice doing Ethan Brundy as a secondary character. This wasn’t my favorite of the series at this point. Mostly because of the intent to “cheat” by the hero as well as the heroine in book 1, The Weaver Takes a Wife. While nothing actually happens between the two, it is not for lack of trying. This issue aside, I did enjoy the fact that the heroine kept this hero on his toes as well as the tense predicament between him and Ethan. Overall, it was enjoyable just not something I will re-listen to.

Very enjoyable.

I really enjoyed this book, as well as the series. Part of it reminded me of a tame version of The Benny Hill Show. I don’t know why since it has been years/decades since I had watched it. I am glad this was in the Romance Package. I highly recommend it.

lively, clean period romance

A marriage of convenience followed by lively romantic mix-ups makes for an enjoyable tale. Well performed, also.

Light amusing fare

Funny little screwball comedy flawlessly continuing the fist two parts. Found a little annoying that all could have been resolved much earlier had the protagonists not beaten around the bush all the time. Storyline and narrative style strongly reminds of Georgette Heyer. Not with the same degree of finesse but equally entertaining which is also due to Mr. Levine doing his usual fine Job.
