Publisher's Summary

Christi Caldwell, USA Today bestselling author of the Wicked Wallflowers series, invites you to join London’s most scandalous society in a witty romance of love, rebellion, and second chances.

Widowed Lady Sylvia Elton is out to save young ladies from the terrible fate of love and marriage. Her former husband has retained his reputation as an honorable and loving man in death, but Sylvia has privately mourned his lies and infidelity. Joined by two equally scorned and cast-off friends, Sylvia establishes the Mismatch Society. With each new liberated member, the scandalous circle wreaks havoc on the romantic prospects of London’s frustrated male peerage. But nothing prepares Sylvia for the Viscount St. John, a familiar face and her most formidable challenger. 

Clayton Kearsley, the Viscount St. John, can’t allow these wantons to dismantle the Marriage Mart. Until he discovers the ringleader is his old friend’s widow, a fine woman for whom he’s carried a torch since the day they met. Thinking himself undeserving of a diamond like her, he introduced her to his best friend - a decision he now regrets deeply, knowing of the hurt she carries in secret. 

Now he is positioned to match wits with this woman, who is determined to save young ladies from future heartbreak. And despite his misgivings, Clayton is entertaining fantasies that he could end their battle with a kiss. If only he had the courage to tell her how he feels - or the hope that she’d ever again let down her guard.

This meeting of the Mismatch Society is called to order...

Even Alex Wyndham couldn't save

I will never learn. This book is one of the worst I've ever listened to. Christi Caldwell is always hit and miss with me...mostly miss. Alex Wyndham is my favorite male narrator, so I thought I was safe in buying this book. WRONG. After listening to 16 chapters, I couldn't tell you the story line.....much much too disjointed. The characters were undeveloped, uninteresting and without purpose. To make it even worse, there was a co-narrator...I think for the female parts. Not sure why because Alex can do female voices beautifully. Alex and Emma Roya alternated and that confused my ears. I cannot recommend this book, sorry.

Not for me.

If you enjoy men on the submissive and not very astute side, then this is for you! Unfortunately,  this is a turn off for me which made it difficult to enjoy this book. Silvia, although clearly the dominant in the story, still fell flat, personality/character, wise. I didn't love nor notlike her, she was just ok.

I will say that the secondary character's were what kept me going. Especially Carlton's 4yr old little sister, she was amazing and amazingly portrayed by the narrator.  The narrator's did a good job in keeping me engaged otherwise I wouldn't have pushed through to the end. 

This contains sex (another plus for me) so, if you're sensitive to explicit sexual situations,  this isn't for you.

Great book!

I loved it! Christi Caldwell is an amazing author. I can't wait to hear the rest of the series. Romance and humor with a little mystery and suspense.

Just the escape I needed

Far fetched. Yes. But everything a regency lover wants and needs in a regency romance.

The narrators were great too. I don’t normally love when there’s a male and female narrator, but this one worked well.

Not what I'd hoped

The story was entertaining and the characters interesting but the sexual encounters were unrealistically public and started way too early in the story to build any realism. I didn't care for the narration much; I have heard Alex Wyndam narrate before and was really looking forward to hearing him again, but his narration here was sing-songy and bland, much like his counterpart. I almost had to stop listening half way through...

SECOND CHANCES!!

Audible Narration was Very Good!! 5 stars for narration!!
The first part of this story was unbelievable for the time period. I t is 1829 an and the widowed Lady Sylvia Elton Dowager Countess of Norfolk has formed the Mismatched Society for Women. The problem I have with this is its 1829 women did not have a choice in getting married or staying single. They had no occupation no way to earn a living and provide for themselves. They must acquire a husband. This Mismatched Society was just to feminist for the era. They would have been shut down

But what I did like was the middle to the end when Sylvia and Clayton Kearsley Viscount St. John friendship advanced into a sensual romance and love story. Clayton was a wonderful hero. Thats saying a lot for me because I usually don't read HR stories unless they are about Dukes, Marquess or Earls. I don't bother with the lower tier of the peerage. But I really like the way Clayton/St.John was written. I love his 4 year old little sister Eris. What a little power house she is. I also, like the interaction between Vallen 3 year old son of Sylvia. His playtime with Eris added to the story. Children always bring and extra element to any storyline.

I also, didn't like that Sylvia was a old spinster. I personally am sick of Spinster storylines. The ending was abrupt. The H/H haven't married yet!!

Brilliant!I was

I love Christie's Books, her stories are always filled with witty banter ,A catchy plot and memorable characters. This title included a little extra heat in the romantic scenes--very sensual but not obscene. Caldwell is an absolute master writer. Enjoy!

A disappointing book

I have always enjoyed Christie Caldwell’s books but it too effort to finish this. Disappointing
