    Description

    A phony engagement turns into real passion in this delightful Regency romance from award-winning author Anne Gracie.

    Fate has lavished beauty on the Merridew sisters - that is, all save the eldest. But plain Prudence bears no grudge; she loves her four beautiful sisters infinitely. So when their abusive grandfather is laid up with an injury, she seizes the opportunity to concoct an ingenious plan that will allow all five of them to escape the clutches of their legal guardian. All it will take is a little matrimonial deception....

    A renowned rake, Gideon, Lord Carradice, has a way of making ladies swoon. But when Prudence arrives at his doorstep and mistakes him for his cousin, the Duke, it is Gideon who's infatuated. The delightful spitfire claims she and the Duke are engaged - although a taller tale was never told. In spite of the lies, Gideon is so taken with charming Prudence that he's eager to join her game, especially if it will award him a stolen kiss or two. Now, Prudence's plot is about to go terribly, albeit deliciously, awry....

    Contains mature themes.

    Favorite Funny Romance; Robotically Read

    This story has always made me smile and laugh! It's often been a go-to re-read when my spirits need a lift. I'm OVERJOYED that Audible added this romance novel! I did find Heather Wilds' reading a little distracting. She used a definitive, chopped style - stating each sentence separately - creating a cadence that sometimes overwhelmed the prose. I find this book, at times, hilarious but I'm glad the narrator didn't play to get laughs. Still, I wish she might have massaged her tone a bit, and paused more in the story's breaks.

    Too Slow & Long

    I was looking forward to this book, but was so disappointed. The first 5 chapters are a great start, but it drags and repeats too much for a good flow to the story.
    The heroine has a secret about a past relationship that keeps her from coming together with the hero. When she tries to tell him her secret, it takes 3 chapters ...just too long. The situation makes the heroine sad and you feel sympathy, but she is not the most likeable character. This makes me conflicted about her. She is also strong, but keeps running out of rooms because she is too upset. It just doesn't make sense, and she gets less strong as the story goes on.
    The hero is great. In the beginning he is funny and full of life, but even he gets depressing towards the end. With 3 hours left I just stopped caring!
    This premise started out great, but went nowhere. It may be good for readers that like a slow meander to the HEA, but it's just too much to get through. I think it's trying to be a romp, but falls far short, as the humour is drained out of the story by the end.
    The narration is very good and I bought it for that reason. This is an okay book, but not great.

    Made me chuckle at times. Can't stand narrator

    The story had some good moments. Author repeats herself, same phrases, throughout the story.
    The person who ruins this audio is the narrator. She pauses After.Every.Sentence. It drags because of her. It doesn't flow well. She is too distracting.
    I shudder because I still have 2 more books that are narrated by her. Sigh. I might just buy the books on kindle to avoid her all together.

    I want a Gideon!

    This was my first book by this author and I loved it! I loved Gideon's sense of humor! The quips were fabulous and the narrarator did a great job with them. I loved how he and Gussie kept getting Otterbury's name wrong, the whole scene at the Duke's house when they first met, the love letters/tailor's bills, his shins with Grace, him having a "fever", the shooting, etc. I loved the "Imp" nickname. I won't go on about actual events. but I'll just say that I loved her strength and EVERYTHING about him, and I loved this story. ❤

    I love Anne Gracie's other books...

    But I struggled with this one. Once the plot took the to Bath, the story picked up. Before that, the scenes with the main love interests were very awkward. I found the beginning was slow, the ending was rushed and the characters were flat. I am hoping the next book in the series has more of the story telling magic I enjoyed with her other books.

    Super funny! Super sad.

    This is a great book! The reader is annoying but her voices are great. She just narrates with strange inflection. Sort of like the sentences aren't connected...weird. hard to explain. But the story is full of great characters and finally a heroine who thinks the best of her guy rather than always jumping to the least likely scenario and getting herself into stupid stuff.
