Read Otherwise Engaged Online Free - Miss Amity Doncaster, world traveler, is accustomed to adventure and risk. Benedict Stanbridge, a man of science and a spy for the Crown, has faced danger in the darker corners of foreign lands. But they are about to face a threat that is shockingly close to home . . .
One does not expect to be kidnapped on a London street in broad daylight. But Amity Doncaster barely escapes with her life after she is trapped in a carriage with a blade-wielding man in a black silk mask who whispers the most vile taunts and threats into her ear. Her quick thinking, and her secret weapon, save her . . . for now.
But the monster known in the press as the Bridegroom, who has left a trail of female victims in his wake, has survived the wounds she inflicts and will soon be on his feet again. He is unwholesomely obsessed by her scandalous connection to Benedict Stanbridge—gossip about their hours alone in a ship’s stateroom seems to have crossed the Atlantic faster than any sailing vessel could. Benedict refuses to let this resourceful, daring woman suffer for her romantic link to him—as tenuous as it may be.
For a man and woman so skilled at disappearing, so at home in the exotic reaches of the globe, escape is always an option. But each intends to end the Bridegroom’s reign of terror in London, and will join forces to do so. And as they prepare to confront an unbalanced criminal in the heart of the city they love, they must also face feelings that neither of them can run away from. . .

I listened to this on audio, and I enjoyed it. I didn't get quite as into this as other reads by this author on audio. I felt that the romance wasn't as well-developed. It seemed almost arbitrary, whereas the mystery was much stronger. The Bridegroom storyline was dark and twisted, and well-thoug...

Unlike the author's long winded style, I can sum up what is wrong with this book in two words ... Endless repetition.
It could have been cut down significantly for greater readability.
Saying "As I said", or "as I mentioned before" doesn't give a character license to repeat things. For example, o...

The first thing to know about this book is that despite how many lists have it as part of the Lantern Street series, this is a standalone with absolutely no paranormal element. And it was nice to go back a more traditional historical story.
Amity Doncaster is a globe trotting adventuress who is wr...

“I think that you are the kind of woman who is able to cope with unforeseen circumstances.”
This is my first Amanda Quick novel but it probably will not be my last. I liked the writing style and the blend of the romance and mystery enough of both but not too much of either. My normal is...

Thoroughly enjoyable. Good story line with enough mystery and romance to keep me reading. The heroine, Amity, is a very modern free thinking woman in London. She also travels the world and is writing a book for 'globetrotting' women. While on a Caribbean island she comes upon a man who has been s...

it pains me to say this because Amanda Quick is one of my favourite authors but everything about this book is just so lukewarm

It's sad to see a once creative author descend to using stock characters

I've given this a B at AAR, so 4 stars.
For some reason, although I’ve listened to a number of Amanda Quick’s books in audio format, I’ve never actually read one, so I decided to rectify that situation by reading the author’s latest release. Otherwise Engaged is an enjoyable romantic mystery which...
