Publisher's Summary

Friendship....

Lady Theodora Montgomery departed Miss Emmeline's School of Education and Decorum for Ladies of Outstanding Quality to attend her first London season - her three dearest friends by her side. With her sharp wit and skill on the archery field, Theo is far more interested in winning a large purse prize than securing a husband. But when she is unmasked on the tourney grounds, her face exposed to all, she fears her identity and days spent gallivanting around London will cause not only her undoing, but the downfall of her friends as well.

Loyalty....

Mr. Alistair Price, heir to the elderly Viscount Melton, arrived in London with his eight younger siblings in tow. He is charged with keeping his family name above reproach until the season starts and his sister, Miss Adeline Price, is presented to society - though that proves far more difficult than Alistair ever expected when he discovers his rebellious sister climbing down the side of their townhouse and scurrying off to Whitechapel for an archery tournament. His focus remains on saving his family from the certain ruin and disgrace Adeline's actions invited - until Alistair catches sight of another female archer, her arrow connecting with far more than the center of her target.

And honor above all....

With Theodora's future - and that of her friends - in jeopardy, will she agree to a marriage devoid of affection, or risk everything for the man who won her heart?

boring male martyr

What would have made Theodora better?

the author kept repeating several things1hero has 8 siblings and it is so hard to deal with them( I thought women do it all the time, what's your problem). 2 he doesn't want to marryheroine doesn't want to mary, she wants to make maps ( at one point I bet with myself how long it would take into the chapter for the word "map" or topical map to appear...not too long!4 The girls could ruin their reputations and therefore not marry well ( even though all the girls have other plans)Every chapter has the same elements, so nothing new. It could have been a short story

What do you think your next listen will be?

nothing by this author. The story was very boring, even though the premis is good.

Would you be willing to try another one of Virginia Ferguson’s performances?

No, I don't think her male voices were good. Especially a story that had such a weak hero.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Theodora?

Cut all the repeated theems. There was really no interaction between the h/h. I have 3 hours to go and still can't figure why they like each other. I was a former archer, but just hitting the target never inspired such strong feelings in the men around me...or I was doing it wrong!

Any additional comments?

A real disappointment. I was looking forward to this book and doubt I can finish. I fell asleep and woke up several chapters later, but it was the same thing..the hero moaning about having to look after his siblings. I thought I jumped back chapters in my sleep, but no, it was a new chapter, just not a new idea.
