Description

Indiscretion is just the beginning

One night of slight overindulgence - oh, all right, he was drunk - and Stephen Parker-Roth finds he must betroth himself to prevent yet another scandal. But his "intended” is lovely, a redheaded beauty under her horrendous, unfashionable bonnet, and before long, he’s congratulating himself on compromising such an excellent candidate - and anticipating what other naughtiness they’ll get caught at before the wedding.

Lady Anne Marston has long since given up any thought of marriage. That is the price she pays for the mistakes of her past. But one little conversation with a handsome rogue should never have led to a sham engagement. Even if it did end in a rather shocking kiss...in broad daylight…on the front step of London’s premier gossip. Now, trapped between a secret and a lie, Anne must somehow disentangle herself from this charming, maddening man before the truth comes out - or her heart gives in.

Lighthearted and thoroughly entertaining romp!

Any additional comments?

The Naked King by Sally MacKenzie is a funny, lighthearted, and thoroughly entertaining historical romance. The story centers around Lady Anne Marston, who at 27, is a spinster well on the shelf. Never experiencing a London season herself, she is the obvious choice to chaperone her 17-year old sister with her introduction to society. Thankfully, Anne's dog leads her into the path of Stephan Parker-Roth, The King of Hearts.

Being 30-years old with a younger sister and brother both married, Stephan is desirous of a wife. He admires Anne's gumption and forthrightness, which are obvious qualities from their first meeting. So, when a cat crosses the path of Anne's dog, who trips Stephen and in turn falls on top of Anne, he has no choice but to marry the girl (and buy Anne and her sister new wardrobes).

I listened to the Audible version of this book narrated by Pearl Hewitt, who did an outstanding job. Pearl provided distinct and consistent voices for all characters, young and old. She has a spunk and sassiness in her readings that make listening very enjoyable. Plus, she enunciates with British sophistication with the best of them. Most excellent!

not quite as funny as the others

But still a good pile of laughs at the misdeeds, missteps, and misperceptions enacted by the main two!

Good story, awkward dialogue

I enjoyed this one more than most in this series. My issue with this one was Anne. She stressed me out. Honestly I felt stressed listening to the first half of the book. She gets better towards the end and she chills out more, but it was rough for awhile. Stephen was charming and lovely. I liked him a lot. I liked that he never once let anyone talk badly about Anne even though it was a forced marriage. It was sweet.

Wonderful!

The story revolves around a heroine who was molested early on and retreated from society. Her love and care for her family is evident but her self loathing has robbed her from any chance of happiness. The hero reaction to her secret and his desire to stand by her is wonderful. The narrator was not good in multiple male voices, it would have been better if she just read rather than those at times annoying male voices.
