Nicola could feel Lord Sebastian's heart beating. It was the most delightful feeling in the world. Surely it meant that The God liked her. More than simply liked her--loved her even. It had to! It just had to!
Miss Nicola Sparks has fallen in love, big time. The object of her dreams is the fabulously rich Lord Sebastian, he of the ice-blue eyes, golden hair, and full-on mastery of the dance floor. To Nicky, Lord S. is a god. But are gods always quite as perfect as they are meant to be?

My thoughts on the audio:
Nicola and the Viscount is read by Amanda Root. Amanda Root is a well seasoned actress who has starred in countless films. I have to admit that I'm a huge fan of hers. When I read that she was the narrator of this book I knew that should would do a fantastic job. She gave each character distinction. She read the story with emotion and passion. This audio book is a pleasure to listen. 

My thoughts on the story:
Nicola and the Viscount by Meg Cabot is the story of Nicola, an orphan, who is about to go into her first season in London. Nicola is a head over heals romantic. She has a love for all things poetic. She longs to be romanced like in a fairy tale. She can't believe her luck when she snags the top catch, Lord Sebastian. He appears to be everything she could ever want but something just doesn't seem right. Her not so dashing cousin keeps coming around and trying to persuade her to marry him but she would sooner jump into a lake of boiling lava. She is also mercilessly teased by her best friends brother. Nicola takes this all in stride but when her childhood home is threatened she ups her game to take down the players.
Nicola and the Viscount is an entertaining story that is humorous as well as endearing. The characters are all enjoyable and the story line is light and fun. If you're a fan of historical fiction or just a Meg Cabot fan, this is a book you should read.

  1. I like Victoria and the Rogue more but this is still a fun Cabot read. I love her YA historical romances :)
