Oh this one was delightful! Penelope was such a fun character. She loves  animals.  She does not move in society, she has a close knit group of friends, and she is a bit crazy (in the best way!)

Gabriel was delicious. He was all I am bad, but he was so not bad at all. And he just went along with the crazy ride that was Pen and all her animals.

There is a pet hedgehog, a goat, an otter, oh the list just goes on. And the parrot is one funny bird. They shake things up, and they make Gabriel see the real Pen. Awwww, right!

It is a really amusing. Pen does not stop for anything. And it was fun watching Gabriel fall for her.

Just pure fun!

Narration ;Mary Jane Wells
The narrator's voice for Pen made me want to be friends with her. It really is the best feeling. I liked her Gabriel too.
She did a great job with this one. I would certainly listen to her again

Wealthy and ruthless, Gabriel Duke clawed his way from the lowliest slums to the pinnacle of high society - and now he wants to get even.

Loyal and passionate, Lady Penelope Campion never met a lost or wounded creature she wouldn’t take into her home and her heart.

When her imposing - and attractive - new neighbor demands she clear out the rescued animals, Penny sets him a challenge. She will part with her precious charges, if he can find them loving homes.

Done, Gabriel says. How hard can it be to find homes for a few kittens?

And a two-legged dog.

And a foul-mouthed parrot.

And a goat, an otter, a hedgehog....

Easier said than done, for a cold-blooded bastard who wouldn’t know a loving home from a workhouse. Soon, he’s covered in cat hair, knee-deep in adorable, and bewitched by a shyly pretty spinster who defies his every attempt to resist. Now she’s set her mind and heart on saving him.

Not if he ruins her first.


  1. Too cute for words. I definitely want to try this one next after I finish Beverly Jenkins' Old West series!

  2. I think I tried one or two books by this author but it's been a while

  3. A foul mouthed parrot would be funny.

  4. I have this one on hold so hopefully it will come in soon.

    Animals! lol

  5. Ha! I loved how Gabriel went along for the ride in all the craziness! That foul mouthed parrot was so funny and the dog with the wheels stole my heart! This was sooo much fun! Glad you loved it too. :)

    1. Yes, he was perfect that way. And what a fun ride it was

  6. I think what I'd love most about this book are the pets, lol! Especially the hedgehog. They're so cute :P

  7. Sounds good, love the sound of all those animals. I guess the parrot had some funny maybe pithy sayings.

  8. I bought my first Tessa Dare recently! It's been a long time since I read historical romance but I'm looking forward to it although I now want to read this one not The Governess Game, lol.

  9. Awww this does sound delightful!

  10. I'm not sure if my earlier comment went through - computer glitch. Anyhow... I need to find the time to listen to this series/author.
