Description

A world-weary rake

After years of unbridled debauchery, Tristan Sinclair, Viscount St. Ashton has hit proverbial rock bottom. Seeking to escape his melancholy, he takes refuge at one of Victorian society's most notorious house parties. As the Christmas season approaches, he prepares to settle in for a month of heavy drinking...until an unexpected encounter changes his plans - and threatens his heart.

A prim vicar's daughter

Valentine March is not the drab little spinster she appears to be. When her new job as a lady's companion lands her smack in the middle of Yorkshire with England's most infamous rake, she resolves to keep her head down and her eyes fixed firmly on her future - a future which most definitely does not include a sinfully handsome viscount.

A match made in scandal

A friendship is impossible. An affair out of the question. But when one reckless act binds them together, will two star-crossed souls discover there's more to each other than meets the eye? Or will revelations from the past end their fragile romance before it begins?

Short, Sweet and Thoroughly Enjoyable

For some this might have been a little mawkish, but I found it swetly delightful. The characters are believable and likeable. Mimi Matthews is a new writer for me, but she's very talented in telling a good story. Justine Eyre, also talented, did a really great job in her narration. I would recomment.

Loved it.

Not as predictable as other British Romance novels. Easy and fun to listen to while I work.

Disappointed

I love this author but found this short novel rather boring. Not much of a plot and I had trouble getting to know the characters.

Unsure

I love Mimi Matthews but this insta love was too much for me. It was a quick listen, so I didn’t expect anything too complex, but there was no drama leading to a fall in love, it was just THERE. Even for the time period and arranged marriage etc, it just wasn’t realistic and left me wishing for more of the characters, more of their story, definitely to see more of them falling/being in love.

Meh.

I'm a huge Georgette Heyer fan! Having run out of Heyer books to read I sought out new literary fare. I don't claim this writer is or should try to write like miss Heyer. However, I will say that my standards are quite high when it comes to regency novels and the pinnacle of those standards are the works of miss Heyer. Where miss Heyer's books are full of wit, charm and fascinatingly intelligent characters, this book 's heroine or protaganista was really quite dense bordering on stupid. She was needy, easy and full of self doubt. All of this books character's lacked charm and grace and that singular wit that stands out in Heyer novels. Perhaps I'm too harsh but the only almost likable character is Viscount Tristan. I think Mimi Mathews should keep writing but work more on character development. The story was interesting but I was far from entertained. Hopefully her future novels will be better.

Unremarkable

While it is an ok entertainment to pass time while e.g. house cleaning, it is the worst of all the Mimi Metthews books I read so far. I read all her later works and quite enjoyed them, so it seams she improved a lot since this one was published.
I would recommend to read any other of her books rather then this one.
Narration was very good!

Has more crude talk than her other books

Mimi writes a great story but this one was a little more dirty than the others I have listened to.

Sweet

Again the author pens a clear story line that doesn’t devolve into ridiculous twists and turns. A very good listen!
