Publisher's Summary

The Duke of Malmesbury’s daughters discover that passion can derail even the best-laid matrimonial plans.

Lady Cecily is known as the “Ice Princess” because of her cool blond beauty and her refusal to wed any of her several eligible suitors. She has no choice but to obey her father, the Duke, who wants Cecily to marry the one man who can assure the family’s social and financial positions: The arrogant and infuriating Viscount Ravenwood, who has been her enemy since childhood. A marriage of convenience is all she expects from their pairing - she has no idea that Ravenwood conceals a deep secret, or just how determined he will be to claim her heart.

Cecily’s sister, Lady Brittany, is relieved that she doesn’t have to take part in the husband hunt in London’s marriage mart - though as a duke’s daughter, she is considered a prime catch. Comfortably engaged to amiable Lord Anthony Faringdon, she knows that though they may not be a love match, she and Tony will get along just fine - that is, until she meets his best friend, the darkly handsome Marquess of Cheriton, whose eyes pierce her very soul. Brittany’s comfortable life and perfect plans will be overturned by her increasingly passionate feelings for the irresistibly charming Marquess.

Is There A Point??

Absolutely nothing is happening. There is no tension . It's like watching someone clip his toenails. Good golly!

Incredibly not-for-me

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

This book was just off for me. There was no real conflict, nor any real story. The characters didn't even seem to have any chemistry. The first of the two stories was supposed to include a mystery, but the solution was obvious.

Did Helen Stern do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Helen Stern did a moderately good job of differentiating the characters from one another, but I think she needs to work on her male characters.

Ditsy females and macho males

Very typical Regency romances. Well written but the lady's maids are unbelievably impertinent. The narration was a bit overdone in places.

Enjoyable Cozy Regency

Quite enjoyable, light Regency stories. I enjoyed the first story better than the second, because I really couldn’t tolerate the fourth daughter - she wasn’t even faintly amusing or interesting!

Neither, for that matter, was Tony. It didn’t make the novel engaging, but one’s curiosity was whetted to discover how the tale would be resolved! (We never actually do find out)…

Good stories

Pretty good stories. I suspect they might have been better read rather listened to. Some language and behaviours of characters were not suited to the period, and the narrator's pronunciation was off at times. Overall good.

Narrator is very good.

several books in one, think I would have preferred them separately but good listening.
