About this audiobook

Lady Glory Brightley was dreading her sister’s house party—until she discovers an early guest mired in a bog. She pulls the Earl of Keswick free—and then goes to great lengths to hide her limp from him. Is it too much to ask, just once, to be seen and treated as everyone else?

Keswick has come to Gloucestershire to hide—from an overzealous debutante, from his father, perhaps even from himself. He bonds with Lady Glory as a fellow misfit—her limp is nothing compared to the wounds he hides. They pledge to see each other through the choppy waters of the party, but he never expected to be caught up by this sprite of a girl—with her quick wit, stunningly fine seat on a horse and giving heart.

Not that he could ever pursue such inclinations. For no true lady could want a man with his reputation and entanglements. Who could love a man who is nothing but a rakehell?

He’s about to find out.

A smart, quirky, and pleasant romance Deb Marlowe brings a new Regency romance with another smart, strong-minded heroine. Lady Glory is the younger sister of Hope, the heroine from the first book in this Unconventional Courtship series. Glory is about to debut in society, but her self-confidence is shot because of bullying about her limp. She had gotten trampled by a horse as a child, and it is a testament to her tenacity that Glory can walk and ride a horse as well as she does. Glory and Keswick are both very likable. I love the irony in the first chapter that it is the hero, instead of the Regency heroine, who hides behind a potted plant at a ball. This book has medium steaminess and is told in third person perspective of the two main characters. I love the climactic scenes and the happy ending. In addition, there is an epilogue from the perspective of Glory’s friend, who will be the heroine of the next book, and I am very intrigued. I look forward to the third book in the trilogy. The narrator has a lovely tone of voice and a great grasp of upper class English accents. She is very good at male and female voices. I think that her pacing was a little too slow sometimes, and it made the audiobook drag a little in a few places. I requested and received a free audiobook copy from the author, and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.
