Publisher's Summary

Jack would rather be at sea than fixing the mistakes of his grandfather, the late Earl of Stansworth. Instead, he finds that inheriting his grandfather's wealth and title and securing the welfare of his sister and mother means joining the ranks of high society and living with the aristocracy. Luckily, Ivy Carslisle, the granddaughter of a dear friend of Jack's late grandmother, is willing to teach him etiquette and properly introduce him into society. Jack soon learns that his challenge isn't surviving his new lifestyle, but surviving the conspiracies against him as well as keeping himself from falling madly in love with his new tutor.

Nice surprise!

This was my first time listening to a Proper Romance book, but it won't be the last! I like that there are clean romance books out there. The author did a good job in making a quick, enjoyable story that doesn't drag, and with the right amount of twists and turns to keep the plot interesting.

My only complaint would be that while the narrator has a great voice, she spoke a tad too quickly for my taste. It made the story seem a bit rushed. Overall, though, it was a great listen!

A sweet story

I did enjoy reading this story however found it a little hard to get through. The hero took a while to like, he was very gruff to start with but soon softened and became rather likeable. The story was rather predictable and towards the middle I did become a little bored but I persevered and did finish it and was glad I did.

A cute twist on a classic story

I enjoyed the story very much. A few times I thought I knew what was coming. And then I am surprised as I was when the antagonist is identified. All and all, a good read.

Very tactful

The content wasn't extreme or rediculous. Plus the narrator has a wonderful voice that helps you easily distinguish the different characters.

Fabulous book.

Exciting story and wonderful characters. I love when Recency Romance books are more than just people sitting and talking in the parlor. This had depth. I would gladly listen again!

Not my favorite

I was really hoping this would be a good listen, but it just fell flat for me. I had a hard time getting into the story the first 8 or 9 chapters. I had to keep going over and relistening to it again. However, I think this is due to the narrator, not the story. The narrator sounded as if she was deliberately trying to lower her voice, which made it sound straind, especially at the end of a sentence and when saying her h's and r's. It made the story fall flat. I think she could have put more inflection, and there for, more life to the story, if she wasn't straining her voice. I think I would have liked it better had I read it myself.

The story itself was good. I liked the back-and-forth banter between the hero and heroine. There was a little bit of mystery and danger for our hero, but it didn't go to far over to the darkside, and didn't take away from the romance of the story. Overall it was a good, lighthearted, humorous at times, typical Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth stubborness, type romace. I would have rather heard it read by Liz Pearce or Sarah Zimmerman. I recommend buying the book and reading it yourself, as opposed to paying more money for the audio book
