Publisher's Summary

Introducing the Bow Street Bachelors - men who work undercover for London’s first official police force - and the women they serve to protect...and wed?

Will a false marriage...

Shipping heiress Georgiana Caversteed is done with men who covet her purse more than her person. Even worse than the ton’s lecherous fortune hunters, however, is the cruel cousin determined to force Georgie into marriage. If only she could find a way to be...widowed? Georgie hatches a madcap scheme to wed a condemned criminal before he’s set to be executed. All she has to do is find an eligible bachelor in prison to marry her, and she’ll be free. What could possibly go wrong?

...Lead to true and lasting love?

Benedict William Henry Wylde, scapegrace second son of the late Earl of Morcott and well-known rake, is in Newgate prison undercover, working for Bow Street. Georgie doesn’t realize who he is when she marries him - and she most certainly never expects to bump into her very-much-alive, and very handsome, husband of convenience at a society gathering weeks later. Soon Wylde finds himself courting his own wife, hoping to win her heart since he already has her hand. But how can this seductive rogue convince brazen, beautiful Georgie that he wants to be together...until actual death do they part?

Exciting Story /Great Characters

This is a new author and I am glad I gave the book a try. I was so rewarded. The story was interesting. The way the H/H met and married was a new one...and in keeping with a smart heroine. I liked this, as she did what needed to be done and nothing seemed to be out of character. The hero is wonderful, and not a rich lord, as is the "standard". He is also not a fortune hunter, but a man with a real job, just trying to make a life for himself. I really liked him, and not just for how he looks. Both of them are likable and you want the best for them....and they get it. The story has complexity and adventure, so it keeps your interest. The relationship develops and I enjoy when you travel along, learning and advancing with the characters. The end is the only issue, as it wraps up a little too conveniently, but it's at the very end, so does not bother me. The narration is great and I bought it as she is one of my favorites. Good job and the story gives her a lot to work with as there are several accents to master. The hero has 2 friends that are funny and loyal. The first books sets up for the next 2 . I can hardly wait! Looking forward to more from this author.

Not Sexy!

The characters are one dimensional caricatures. The hero is supposed to be sexy because he's a brawny army guy, the foil to the buffoon of a poet. What's wrong with a literary man? How is war sexy?? Also, the descriptions of intimacy are cringeworthy. A woman's parts are described as "the middle hole" and sex is called "coitus," a term that should only be used in medical journals, and maybe not even there. The guy "kneads" her breasts like bread dough. I tuned out on purpose. There are plenty of books in this genre that have decent character development and steamy scenes that don't make you embarrassed for the author.

Really enjoyed it

Great fun. The entire premise was totally unbelievable in every way but it was great fun and I liked the chemistry between hero and heroine. He was the typical self assured macho guy in some ways but not as arrogant as the typical titled guys and it was kind of fund to see roles reversed and a tough smart heroine who ran a business even if it all seemed very far fetched — he had to be self assured to match up to our heroine. Read it for the sheer fun of it and forget looking for reality. That’s not what regency mystery romance is about anyway. Narrator did well for men’s voices, which not all women narrators can do. I’m going to try the next one right now. Used a credit on it and not sorry and will use one for book 2. Delightful and complete escapism!! Note on steam: I thought it had just (almost) enough steam — I’m not crazy about the totally clean romances as they seem a bit too prudish and so it’s hard to get into the feelings between H and H(we want to see how they do in bed!!!). I also don’t like the books where 1/4 or 1/3 of the story is about her slick pink folds and his throbbing member over and over and over. This one had a bit of somewhat explicit steam in just the right places and it definitely didn’t take over the story.

Earl of Mine

Excellent narration, lots of action for both hero and heroine. Many characters made it a little hard for me to identify who'd who, but I did enjoy this audio.
