Description

"Matthews weaves suspense and mystery within an absorbing love story. Readers will be hard put to set this one down before the end." (Library Journal, starred review) 

An Uncommon Beauty....

Hidden away in rural Devonshire, Phyllida Satterthwaite has always been considered more odd than beautiful. But in London, her oddity has made her a sensation. Far worse, it’s caught the eye of the sinister Duke of Moreland - a notorious art collector obsessed with acquiring one-of-a-kind treasures. To escape the duke’s clutches, she’s going to need a little help. 

An Unlikely Hero....

Captain Arthur Heywood’s days of heroism are long past. Grievously injured in the Peninsular War, he can no longer walk unaided, let alone shoot a pistol. What use can he possibly be to a damsel in distress? He has nothing left to offer except his good name. 

Can a marriage of convenience save Philly from the vengeful duke? Or will life with Arthur put her - and her heart - in more danger than ever?

The Best!!!

Perfection. Yes, that describes this story of the heart that won me over quickly. This is the third story by this author I have read and listened to in audible and I truly did not think it could top the others. But I am beginning to understand her writing has so much depth in her characters and insight into the emotions she builds on, I will always read her stories going forward! The narration of Alex Wyndham just brings the characters alive, with all of the angst, emotions and love that makes him one of my very favorite narrators. I could listen to him endlessly. A lady that needs saving from a marriage to an evil man and a hero who at first thinks he is not good enough for anyone. A washed up wounded soldier who could not possible come to the aid of a lady. But oh, he does and an amazing friendship develops which smoothly falls into a romance for the heart. A stunning, emotional dance filled with suspense, a marriage of convenience and a sigh worthy couple that exhibit all that is good in matters of the heart. I highly recommend this book and am listening to every audible by Mimi Matthews.

Great Listen!

I liked Phyllida from the beginning. She did seem a bit naive about a few things but she was used to country life and not that of London. I did not care for her uncle at all, nor her cousin Elizabeth. Phyllida has such a big heart and feels things deeply. I loved how she helped Captain Heywood without anyone noticing. I really liked Captain Heywood! He is a great hero, perhaps a bit too protective at times but his heart was in the right place. The communication between the characters was excellent. This author writes great communication and great kisses. There are many fun little moments between Heywood and Philly, I loved the last page.

Melancholy romance

This is was a well written story with characters that have depth. It is like Georgette Heyer minus the comedic relief. I thought this story was kinda sad- melancholy like. I thought it could have been helped with some humor. Both of the main characters are so serious. The story did keep my attention and there were some surprises along the way, I definitely wanted to know what happened next. The narration was ok. He gave the male lead a hoarse whisper which was a bit odd and the way he read the female lead was also bit odd. It had an odd melodic staccato. Overall good and would read books by this same author.

My heart is a flutter!

Absolutely loved this - especially the open communication amongst the protagonists. Really, it gets “roll your eyes” irritating when there’s so much miscommunication in many of historical romances these days, this is so very refreshing and has the feel of an Austin novel. As for the narrator, he was amazing when he spoke/performed as the characters (especially the deep rasp of the hero) but was slightly monotonous when he was - well - narrating, but a solid performance over all.

Decent Story, Annoying Narration

The story was good for the most part, but I found the narrator extremely distracting. He has a way of making everything he says sound like a question.

Woah! Misunderstandings are nonstarters!

Surprisingly sweet. And a couple that openly talks about what’s troubling them and addressed the misunderstanding without wallowing in misery? What a novel concept .

couldn't handle the reader...

I stopped within 2 minutes because the reader had inflections I couldn't handle. Really too bad because I liked the idea of the book.
