Publisher's Summary

Can the Ladies of the Wagering Whist Society help an impoverished modiste win the hand of a sought-after Duke?

Tina Rowan is beautiful, talented - and wants nothing more than to be free of her past. The illegitimate daughter of a baroness, she is being blackmailed by her own foster-father. She must rely on her flair for designing dresses to earn enough to pay him off. Starting a business dressing the ladies of Regency society isn’t easy for a nobody. But Tina has three aces up her sleeve - her own amazing talent, her well-connected biological mother, and the helpful (if meddlesome) support of the Ladies’ Wagering Whist Society.

The handsome, arrogant Duke of Warwick has grown up schooled in the “proper” way for a nobleman to behave. Rule number one: Do not fraternize with people of the lower classes. But when he has to introduce his beloved sister to society, he finds himself completely reliant on the beguiling woman he’s hired as his sister’s modiste. To his astonishment, he finds himself opening up to her and enjoying her company far, far too much.

When Tina discovers the true man behind the ducal title, her heart might very well be lost. But can the duke set aside his façade and allow himself to love the only woman who could possibly make him happy?

It will take the combined efforts of the Ladies’ Wagering Whist Society to see this difficult hand well played.

Great beginning to hopefully a wonderful series. The story was intriguing, the characters were enjoyable & sweet. The narration was great and hopefully I can catch the next book in the series.

Sweet Regency Romance!

This is the first book in The Ladies' Wagering Whist Society. This is a sweet and beautifully written Regency Romance. The characters are great, and the storyline is interesting. Naomi Rose-Mock did a good job with the narration. I received this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily written this review.

Great voices.

I truly liked the voice actor. The woman who did the Voices did an outstanding job with the men's voices. Particularly the duke's voice.

Love the Main Character!

I really enjoyed this listen. I love the idea of the main character working as a modiste. The story was good, but I feel like the Duke's character could've been developed a bit more. I wanted more depth of thought and feeling from him. Perhaps it was the way he was narrated? I didn't care for his character's voice, but overall, the narration was very good. POTENTIAL SPOILER: Or perhaps it was the encounter between Tina and the Duke when he comes to her home that spoiled it a bit for me. I think the scene was a little excessive, not believable (she prides herself on being virtuous), and I like truly clean historical romance. I don't need body parts mentioned.

Sweet story - great narration!

Overall I liked this story. It was very sweet, if not a little implausible given the time period. The book is set in what appears to be the Regency era in London. The book introduces Tina, an illegitimate child of a member of society. She is smart, kind, and very talented at fashion design and soon befriends the Duke's sister while making dresses for her. The book follows Tina's relationship with her biological mother and her and her blossoming, but unprobeable relationship with the Duke. I found elements of the book hard to believe, but that is the fun in fiction-you can just accept what is presented and enjoy it for what it is!
The narration was very good. Ms. Rose-Mock does a great job with the British accents in the book and an excellent job with the male and female characters' voices! Each one sounded completely different which made the book very entertaining to listen to. My only criticism of the Audible book is that the editing of chapters or written breaks in a chapter seemed a little off at points, but this did not detract from my enjoyment of the book!

Fun!

Oh not laughing humor, but a couple of ear to ear grins for sure! A fun book that only made a single oops by rather clumsily tossing a totally out of context and unnecessary sentence or two into the mix at what I’m sure was an afterthought attempt to give a tie in to another book in the series. Seen for what it was yet offering the tiniest tickle of curiosity to someone paying attention.

Narration: excellent

Creditworthiness: totally

Heat Factor: Clean and cool
