Publisher's Summary

Just as merchant's daughter Felicity Mayson is spurned once again because of her meager dowry, she receives an unexpected invitation to Lady Blackstone's country home. Being introduced to the wealthy Oliver Ratley is an admitted delight, as is his rather heedless yet inviting proposal of marriage. Only when another of Lady Blackstone's handsome guests catches Felicity's attention does she realize that nothing is what it seems at Doverton Hall.

Government agent Philip McDowell is infiltrating a group of cutthroat revolutionaries led by none other than Lady Blackstone and Ratley. Their devious plot is to overthrow the monarchy, and their unwitting pawn is Felicity. Now Philip needs Felicity's help in discovering the rebels' secrets - by asking her to maintain cover as Ratley's innocent bride-to-be.

Philip is duty bound. Felicity is game. Together they're risking their lives - and gambling their hearts - to undo a traitorous conspiracy before their dangerous masquerade is exposed.

Why, WHY do they keep using this narrator?!?

I’m not even 25 minutes into this audible recording and I can’t keep listening. I love Melanie Dickerson’s books, but whoever selects the narrator for this series needs to be fired. It is impossible to visualize a male romantic lead with the simpering, growly, unbelievable voice that she uses for the character. This probably means I won’t finish the book for a long time, because I don’t have time to read but I do have time to listen while I drive. I hope the author gets this feedback and can weigh in on who they choose to narrate her books.

Is it a romance or action? It failed at both.

The reader's voice was irritatingly high. There was such dumb romance interspersed with some unbelievable action. Ugh

This narrator is AWFUL!!!

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I was really excited to read this book! Until about a minute into the audio book version. I tried for a chapter to adapt to the narrator's voice and style, but it just wasn't possible. I'm sorry, but it is REALLY BAD. This is the worst narrator I have ever listened to. Once I have time to actually sit down to read a book I'll try this one again because I'm a huge fan of Melanie Dickerson's books!

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Why did I finish this?!!!

Poor character development & poor plot could not be overcome even if the narration was well done. Sadly, this narrator mispronounces several words, has melodramatic, if not cartoonish voices. I wish I hadn't finished it.

very annoying <br />story line

It was well performed even if the voice of the main girl was sometimes grating, it fit her stupid girl personality.
really she was quite a stupid girl . *spoiler* there never was an explanation of why the aunt picked her particularly to come to her home when they were plotting to over through the government just so she could marry her 2nd hand man( who was also an idiot) but Why ? why her she had nothing to offer their cause and seemed to have no purpose .and why in the world would they want to bring in a stranger to the cause just before their planned attack, it made no sense and was a very weak plot line. It was just way too stupid, like seriously stupid.

The best of the series

After having listened to all three books I can honestly say the story and the characters in this book were fantastic. The story has a good pace and is well developed. I think the narrator did a great job on this book. On the two previous books it had taken me some time to get use to her and enjoy her performance, especially her male voices. However, this book was quite different and I thought her performance and her ability to stay in role for each character was excellent! Great Job and a good clean listen to all those who enjoy a adventurous romantic read!

Another Melanie Dickerson Fairytale

I love Melanie Dickerson's writing. This historical romance is set in the 1810s. She continues the story with Julia and Liora's friend Felicity finding her own adventure and romance even though she has no dowry. The author kept me in suspense as to how and when Felicity would be rescued.

Big disappointment. It was hard to finish.

I was very disappointed with this book. I enjoyed the first two books in The Regency Spies series. The writing seemed very juvenile. And maybe that was because Felicity was supposed to be portrayed as young and inexperienced. Whatever it was it was annoying to me through the whole book.

A wonderland spy novel

This book captured my attention from the beginning and held me captive until the very end. Thank you, Melanie, for penning such an entertaining book. I thoroughly enjoyed it!
