Dear Lady Truelove,
My ward is driving me crazy. I have to marry her off and get her out of my life. There’s just one problem…
When Jonathan Deverill promised a dying friend he’d be guardian to the man’s daughter, he envisioned a girl in pigtails and pinafores, a child he could leave behind in some finishing school. Problem is, his ward is actually a fully-grown, defiant beauty whose longing for romance threatens to make his guardianship a living hell.
New York heiress Marjorie McGann wants a London season and a titled husband who can help her spend the Yankee millions she’s inherited, and she thinks her new British guardian is the perfect person to help her find him. But Jonathan has no intention of letting his friend’s fortune be squandered. Under his watchful, protective eye, Marjorie finds romance hard to come by . . . until one fateful night when her own guardian’s devastating kisses makes her wonder if the greatest romance of all might be right in front of her.

Why Did I Listen To Heiress Gone Wild by Laura Lee Guhrke?

I randomly picked Heiress Gone Wild by Laura Lee Guhrke off my TBR cart and decided to give it a listen after seeing the audiobook on Hoopla. One of my favorite former bloggers was a fan of Guhrke, so I have been wanting to check out her books. And well, the time just felt right to give this one a whirl. Also? I love the purple cover, for some reason it puts me in a pretty good mood.

What’s The Story Here?

As the book opens, Jonathan Deverill has promised his dying business partner that he would be the guardian of his daughter. Deverill assumes the daughter is a little girl. Imagine his surprise when he gets to the girl’s boarding school in New York and learns she’s actually an adult woman. Oh, and quite attractive. Jonathan plans to leave her in New York while he gets his affairs in Africa all set. However, Marjorie, the girl, is a real spit fire. She wants a London season, a husband with a title and plans to spend a bit of the money her father has left her. So, Marjorie sneaks aboard the luxury liner bringing Jonathan back to London.

As it turns out, Jonathan is stuck bringing Marjorie back. However, he’s not much help in the helping her find a husband department as he scares off all her potential suitors. Also, he has a thing for Marjorie. He fights it, but then one night they kiss, and well, now Marjorie is considering him as a possibility.

What Did I Think Of Heiress Gone Wild?

With Heiress Gone Wild, I really enjoyed the parts of the book that took place while they were crossing the Atlantic Ocean. There’s a fortune hunter, gossiping old ladies, and bad decisions. So, I was really into the drama. Once they got to London, my attention kind of waned. I also felt like Jonathan was way more into Marjorie than Marjorie was into him. Overall, I would have liked continued hijinks I suppose.

How’s The Narration?

The audiobook of Heiress Gone Wild is narrated by Justine Eyre. It is 10 hours and 2 minutes unabridged. I listened to this via Hoopla at 1.5-1.75x speed, depending on my attention span for the day. This isn’t my first tango listening to Eyre. She’s wonderful for historical romance and I think part of the reason why I feel like I enjoyed this book more than most.
