Publisher's Summary

He cannot obtain his fortune without first obtaining a bride. 

Charlotte Clarke wants nothing more than to experience a London Season. But when she finds out she has to wait another year due to her sister's recent pregnancy, she is crushed. All is not lost as a letter arrives soon after summoning Charlotte to Danbury Hall to meet her new guardian, John Wilkins. With little choice but to go, she determines to contrive a way to convince her new guardian to take her to London in her sister's stead.

John Wilkins spent the last four years running his family's plantation in the Caribbean. When he returns to England after his father's death, he learns that not only is he the guardian of his estranged cousin, but his father amended his will: John will not inherit anything until he marries or turns thirty. Eager to attend the Season and obtain a bride, he agrees to take Charlotte with him.

Charlotte takes on the Season, searching for love while assisting Mr. Wilkins in finding a suitable bride. But what she doesn't count on is falling in love with him herself.

A clean and wholesome Regency romance, Love in the Ballroom is the fifth book in the Women of Worth series. It can be listened to as a stand-alone romance, but is best enjoyed in proper order.

such a sweet wonderful book

I enjoyed this book very much!! I loved the whole story here. I'm always intrigued when I read these time period stories where women have no real control on their lives. It's so frustrating to read! lol But i loved this book so much. The main character is a very smart woman and had no problems with navigating her new circumstances.

A great book!

I really liked the story, it flowed well and had a nice balance of characters. I didn’t like the narrator as much, but she was still easy to listen to and did the story justice. Overall a good listen that will keep you interested and entertained throughout!

Dual perspective Regency Romance

This story is told through the eyes of an eager young heroine and also through the eyes of a noble young gentleman. Their path to romance includes lots of hiccups such as guardianship, the horrors of slavery, illegitimacy, greed, and society’s expectations. From beginning to end, it was interesting. I especially liked the inclusion of an anti-slavery society and two great examples of happy adoptions.

Great read!

This book was so good! I couldn’t wait to get kids off to school so I could pick it up and start reading again. I loved CharIottes character- strong and opinionated yet still caring and kind. The book had humor in it which I appreciate and just enough romance to keep me happy. This is one I would for sure recommend to everyone.
When I first started listening to this book I wasn’t a big fan of the narrator- she just wasn’t who I was expecting. I was worried that I wouldn’t like listening to it. After a few minutes I had no problem- he’s voice really grew on me and I had no problem finishing the book. She did a great job with inflection and she changed her voices for all the different characters.

A chance relationship

This was a sweet listen. The characters met in a unconventional way. I enjoyed their friendship and their growing relationship. I did not feel a ton of depth to this story, but it was enjoyable.

The narrator was fine, not my favorite, but far from bad. I had to speed it up a bit for my enjoyment, the narrator was a bit slower talking for my taste. But she did keep my interest.

I received a complimentary copy for an honest review y.

A nice listen

This was a fun story! The story line was different from all the same old same old retellings of the same situation to make it more interesting to listen to.

A great clean romance

This audiobook has a great story! I can't say I've ever read one quite like it. The situation is unique. I won't spoil it for anybody. 😉

I love how the author included true information about the state of slavery at the time, and the people who were fighting against it (there is some more description of that and how it was used in the book after the epilogue). I found it very interesting, and it makes me giddy when authors include that kind of researched information.

The narrator does a wonderful job portraying different character voices, and the flow of her reading was easy to follow.

I did give it a 4- star review. I *think* that, at first, I was thrown off a bit by the first person style of writing (I think most that I have read recently have been narrated through the 3rd person, and I've gotten accustomed to that style). I was unsure at first what was making the book slightly confusing and a little weird for me at the beginning. But I do believe that was the reason. By the end of the audiobook, I was completely used to it and it didn't bother me anymore. So, overall, I loved it! But I thought I should mention that, at first, there was something about it that felt off to me. Hopefully it's just me that feels it, and it was due to my reading history.

I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a sweet, clean, romance!

Sweet story

This is a nice sweet historical story where the author has made good attempt to use period language and references. I found the story a little flowery but it was still a good solid story that had depth and detail.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Sweet

I loved the main characters and I grew to love the aunt by the end of the story. Sometimes the story felt like journal entries that were a little confusing but the story was sweet.
