Regency romance lovers will swoon over the second offering in the “Belles of London” series. Matthews has penned another fun Regency romp sprinkled with fairy-tale references and outrageous situations. Julia Wychwood is an heiress desperate to escape her demanding parents and the confines of London—she is much more at ease with books than balls or society soirées. Captain Jasper Blunt is in London in search of a wealthy wife who can offer him a cash influx to save his crumbling estate in the English countryside. Both of their problems can be fixed with one minor event—marriage. They decide to eschew the opinions of the London elite and wed. Julia’s sizable dowry will go to Jasper, and in return she asks for freedom to read, ride, and wander the estate. Jasper readily grants her that, but she can’t wander everywhere on the estate; there are some off-limits areas that certainly pique Julia’s interest, especially when she learns what kind of man the Captain really is. Charmingly narrated by Ell Potter and Sebastian Brown, this audiobook brims with fun, charm, and growing sexual tension.
VERDICT A must-listen for fans of the “Bridgerton” series, fairy-tale spin-offs, and Regency romance.
