Categories: , Author: Narrator: Length:


Emilia MacNeil is an independent miss. Truth be told, she’s a bit of a tomboy, and many’s the proper lady who has called her a hussy for her sometimes less than ladylike behavior. But Emilia remains unrepentant. She’s as good as any man, and better than some, and the last thing she wants is to be married to any of them. She’ll happily be an aunt to her siblings’ children, but she wants nothing to do with marriage.

Enter Lord Cedric Hanson, Duke of Roxburgh. According to her father the Marquess, the Duke is to be her husband, but Emilia refuses to comply. When she is brought back after her first attempt at escape is foiled, she vows to take the battle to the enemy, so to speak. But every attempt she makes to escape is hindered, first by the guards who accompany her and her father to the Duke’s seat, and afterwards by the Duke himself. Their game of hide and seek eventually leads to more, as Emilia finds herself reluctantly admiring the man who would take her freedom. Admiration becomes arousal…becomes more. In the end, on her wedding day, Emilia must choose between the independence she has fought for all her life and the man she has come to love.

    I was enjoying the story, but the voice the narrator chose for the protagonist took away most of the enjoyment I could’ve gotten from the plot and characters. I do not think she’s a bad narrator, because it was only the protagonist, but since we’re always with her I got tired very fast. There were other details in the audio editing, like repetitions of sentences or phrases and, in once instance, a phrase was repeated three times because the narrator had to clear her throat the first two. Again, I’m not saying the narrator is bad, but bad editing and an annoying voice for the MC didn’t let me enjoy neither the story nor the narrator.

    I was given a free copy of this audiobook and have voluntarily given this review. This didn’t influence my review in any way.

    Ah, thank goodness, w don’t still live in a time of arranged marriages, although, I believe this still some cultures practice.
    I don’t doubt, as in this story, many parents believe they are doing the best for the woman involved. However, not all suitors are like the Duke, as portrayed, and social and economic benefits are often taken precedent over the welfare of the young woman. Such, unfortunately, appears human nature.
    The music between chapters, detracted from the overall experience, as well as one area, where editing should have occurred.
