Publisher's Summary

Although this book is part of a trilogy, each book is a stand-alone story in its own right.

Charlotte Webster thought she was eloping with the love of her life. She did not expect it to be a ploy and a way to force her way to a marriage with a stranger, who wanted an innocent bride. Held in a house of ill repute, there is little time to act to try and escape and few options to consider.

Lord Halkyn is a peer much in demand, but an expert at avoiding marriage. He has always had fixed ideas on love-it causes too many problems to be worth the trouble. He did consider marriage to one lady once, but it would have been a business transaction. Unfortunately for him, the lady in question had wanted to marry for love and had refused him. Rather than ridicule her, his opinion of her increased and he began to wonder if there was something in the nonsense that was love after all.

When visiting his favorite house of ill repute, run by a Baron, he is accosted by a woman. He is begged for help in escaping from the house. Whether it was the real fear in her voice, or whether it was the devil in him, he helped her. Suddenly his life was to become far more complicated.

Protecting an innocent, employing the services of Bow Street and racing across country, all situations that he could never have anticipated when he was first sought out by Miss Charlotte Webster.

His life was never going to be the same again.

    "Nice idea, but with inconsistencies"

    I got this audio book free of charge in exchange for an honest review.

    As romances go, the book is OK, but there were some things which weren't convincing, such as one of the protagonists thinking they were too old to marry a woman seven years younger than them.
    At the time, the difference in age was commonly even bigger than just seven years.
    And then all the physical reactions -- really? We're not talking about a teenager here.
    I have to admit, that all the explicit sexual talk doesn't really fit the era in which the story is set.
    As is usual with Elizabeth Klett, the narration was excellent, so it was an enjoyable listen after all.

    Story
    "Regency Love"
    Where does An Inconvenient Wife rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It was pretty good, not the worst, far from it but not the best. I like a little bit more intimate scenes in my romance books.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Stephen was my favorite, mainly because I love "watching" him fight falling in love. Also that he had a sense of honor.


    Which character – as performed by Elizabeth Klett – was your favorite?

    Stephen was my favorite. I loved the narration, the fact that it was not too British, brought the character to my mind like watching a movie.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, I loved the scenes during Charlotte's capture, her being thrown out of the coach, and Stephen frantically searching for her, her rescue by neighbors, and her short term memory loss..

    "Strangely light-hearted"
    Any additional comments?

    An Inconvenient Wife is the second book of the Inconvenient Trilogy, by Audrey Harrison, but is completely enjoyable if you didn’t read the first one, although most of the characters of the first book came back for the second one, giving continuity and fluidity to the story.
    This book has a more somber or sinister setting involving the kidnapping of innocent girls and their sale for the highest bidder on the very beginning, but this is quickly resolved giving the story a kind of surreal note. This sets the tone for the humorous note, and I believe this is the strong part of the story. It reads like a romp, with a good banter between the main characters and a light-heartedness depiction of various situations – bad situations are usually quickly set aside. If you let yourself get caught by the comical – almost farcical – element of the storytelling, this book is amusing.
    The main characters are Charlotte Webster, a strong minded and very young schoolroom girl, and Lord Stephen Halkyn, who we saw in the first book as a possible suitor to Elizabeth’s hand and who didn’t believe in love (and who believes is ancient at the age of twenty-four). There are some subplots, some twists and turns, and some very good secondary characters (as Walter, the butler), but the main part of the book is the building relationship between these two very different but very compatible characters. Although in general lines they seemed cliché regency characters, there is enough authenticity in them so they stand in their own right. I believe some of the subplots are going to be resumed in the next book of the trilogy, and now I am anxious to know what will happen to all these characters construed by Ms Harrison. The fiendish elements of the plot keep this story to be a standard regency book, in my opinion, but I think it is authentic enough and interesting enough to appeal to most fans of a good regency story.

    I was given a copy of the audiobook to review and I would recommend it to everyone who enjoys regency novels. The narration is outstanding with an excellent range of voice and tone, and I believe it only adds to the story. I would like to thank Elizabeth Klett for her performance, because I am not sure I would have read this book otherwise and I am glad I did.

    "Good story, excellent narrator."
    If you could sum up An Inconvenient Wife in three words, what would they be?

    Pleasant, entertaining, predictable


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The bow street runner...he's competent, street-wise, and has a mystery behind him.


    What about Elizabeth Klett’s performance did you like?

    I liked everything about Elizabeth klett's performance. Seriously, she made this. The story is fine but her narration takes it to the next level. Pleasant voice, subtle but extremely effective.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not really.


    Any additional comments?

    Obviously the second in the series because there were a fair number of paragraphs needed into fill in the backstory for events in this book to make sense. That was fine by since I hadn't read book one but might be a little tedious for someone who had.

    "Relaxing read"

    A light, pleasant romance read with a somewhat different take on things. The characters certainly are, and the plot moves along well. Just the sort of escapism we all need from time to time.
    E. Klett gave her usual fine audio performance which always adds to the prose.
    This book was free, and a review was anticipated.

    "Book 2 Proves Book 1 Not a Fluke"

    I really liked book 1 in this Trilogy, An Inconvenient Ward, and I am a bit surprised that I actually liked this one even better. This time, we had a little more intrigue, and I liked the further involvement of Bow Street and the introduction of a couple of characters I hope get to find some happy down the road. This is a great series.

    Elizabeth Klett is wonderful and breathes such life into the characters. She makes the performance flow so beautifully that she makes it seem easy, but I know it is not, and I appreciate her talent so much.

    I received this audiobook in exchange for an unbiased review. The number of stars is based on where I believe this audiobook rates with other audiobooks of the same type, length and general feel-- not where it rates in comparison to all audiobooks of all time.

    The 2nd book in the trilogy didn't disappoint me. I love the way Audrey Harrison writes. The story kept me engaged throughout and left me wanting more. I love all the strong female characters. It's always enjoyable to see an overbearing Lord get put I his place.

    "I love this series so much!!!"
    Any additional comments?

    The best part about a book series is when a book can be experienced as a standalone but then rewards the reader by continuing the storyline of earlier characters. This second book in the Inconvenient series delivers in spades on both counts!!

    Charlotte was a wonderful new character and her relationship with Stephen was sweet, albeit challenging. The author managed to create an ingenious and unforgettable first meet for the two that kept you rooting for them at every turn.

    Their relationship, or lack thereof, brought us back into the world of Elizabeth and Charles, the much loved duo from the first book. The two couples sparred well together and the mesh was just great storytelling!

    I can't wait for book three!

    When I finished The Inconvenient Ward I thought that I had just read or listened to perfection in a book. But I was so very wrong.
    I have just completed An Inconvenient Wife and this was another amazing experience. A beautiful and well-told story about two people discovering their love for each other while living with and learning from others as well as from their own experiences about life and love.
    Again, Elizabeth Klett has done an outstanding job of narration.
    A great product from two very talented artists.

    A really good, well written, interesting and entertaining regency romance.

    This is the second book in the inconvenient trilogy and I enjoyed this book even more than the first book.
    This is the story of Lord Stephen Halkyn and Charlotte Webster. The story starts out with Charlotte being in serious trouble and seeking out Stephen for help. While trying to keep Charlottes reputation from complete ruin, Stephen enlists the help of Michael & Elizabeth Dunham from the first book in the trilogy. Through twists & turns, misunderstandings and dangerous situations surrounding both Charlotte and Elizabeth the plot moves along at a nice even pace. In the end Charlotte and Stephen do get a HEA. Overall it's just a very enjoyable book.

    The narration was done by Elizabeth Klett for this book and once again her narration was perfect for this story. Her narration flows smoothly and evenly bringing the characters to life.

    This is the second book I have listened to by Audrey Harrison and again she did not disappoint at all. I really enjoyed this book.

    "Very Good"
    What did you like most about An Inconvenient Wife?

    I enjoyed the whole story line. I love it when there is some suspense in historical romance and there is lots of it in An Inconvenient Wife. The baron makes a very good villain and you get a good sense of the threat he poses to Charlotte and other young girls.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I enjoyed Lord Halkyn's character. I really liked him when he appeared in book one and I was happy to see him get his own story in book 2. I liked how he changed as the story progressed and he fell in love. He didn't hesitate in helping Charlotte. He stepped up and became the hero that she needed him to be.


    Have you listened to any of Elizabeth Klett’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I love everything about Elizabeth Klett's performances. Her accent is brilliant. When she narrates English historical pieces her accent and tone of voice really reflect the time period. She somehow manages to lend an old world charm to the story.She completely changes it up for contemporary stories set in America. She is amazing and I would buy an audio book simply because Elizabeth Klett has narrated it.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, this was a book I wanted to listen to in one sitting. I would recommend it and the whole series.

    "Book 2 in an Enjoyable Regency Romance Series"

    Audrey Harrison has delivered with this second book in the Inconvenient Series. The story has all the drama one would expect with a Regency romance and Elizabeth Klett has provided a well presented narration. Overall enjoyable. I would just recommend that you read or listen to the previous book first as there are definite connections in the plot.
