Audio Review: Wedding Night with the Earl - Amelia Grey

Adam Greyhawke is through with marriage. After losing his wife at a young age, he's more interested in carousing and gambling at the Heirs' Club than taking another trip to the altar. When his obligations as the Earl of Greyhawke thrust him into the heart of Society, he dreads the boredom that only a ballroom can inspire in a roguish scoundrel. That is, until he meets a bewitching young woman who captures his curiosity-and reminds him just how delicious desire can be. Miss Katherine Wright is accustomed to men interested only in her generous dowry. Adam's attraction is far more powerful-he tests her wits and her courage at every turn, until she finds herself longing to fulfill an everlasting passion she never imagined was possible. But the breathtakingly handsome nobleman is as stubborn as he is scandalous, and Katharine must be the one to convince him that real love is worth any risk .

My thoughts:
It seems I read it a year and a half ago, oops. But since this was audio I know I needed to listen to at least know the narrator. But then I started---and continued---and suddenly I had listened to it all. I did feel it impossible to stop. It was a different experience than reading, I understand that know. Even when I read my old review I understood I had to write a new one cos I had different feelings. Even if I did enjoy it both times.

Adam lost his wife and baby in childbirth, and now he is all I will never remarry! Poor guy. He is all tormented and missing her, and blaming himself.

Katherine lost her entire family in a carriage accident (the bane of those times). She walks with a cane and knows that this season she must find a match. And she does have a suitor, and I did like him. Even if he had faults. He was a man of those times. But I still think he too should find a good woman.

Anyway they meet, they fancy each other, but he is all woe is me! No other woman should die! So they flirt some more while he ponders that and then they live happily ever after.

A really cute romance.

Narrator Barrie Krainik
I do enjoy historical romance on audio. It works so splendidly! I love the proper tone of it and it just feels even more so when you are listening. I gasp in feigned shock and giggle at things. And Barrie does a good job of getting those feelings. I liked her voices and especially Katherine's was very pleasant.

  1. Narrators are SOOOO important - I have listened to audiobooks just because I liked a particular narrator and looked for other things things they'd narrated.

  3. It makes sense that your feelings for an audiobook may be different than when you read it. I recently listened to a favorite of mine for the first time and didn't like it because there were too many characters popping in and the narrator tried, but some of them sounded really weird and skewed the imagine I had pictured of them. Glad to hear this worked out for you though. :)

  5. I never really thought about how HR (in comparison to other genres) would be different on audio but it makes sense.

    I'm always kind of afraid to try contemp romance because I don't know how I'll feel about the naughty bits blaring over my speakers in the car lol
