I love Stephanie Lauren's books and had previously read this a couple of times but did not enjoy the narrator at all.
This one could had been more of intrigue and still have just enough sex that it could make you flush! Simon Prebble voice is very sexy and I love his voice in all the Cynester novels that he read, even if the story was not as good he can make it sound good, if you like Stephanie you will like this.
Simon Prebble is such a great narrator that I really loose the male/female voice differences. His Voices for his characterizations are so consistent that you know how he has patterned all the characters in his brain. Just a joy to listen to.
While I was miffed that it took so long for Patience to get over her "elegant gentleman" misconception, in the end I loved her championship and protective stance of those she loved.
I know Scandal's story is next, but Demon has stated a challenge and I can't wait to listen to the series.
Simon Prebble brings Stephanie Laurens stories to life. Love the Cynsters, Laurens and Prebble is now at the top of my Gotta Have Narrators.
English read by an Englishman
same as above. He's awesome
Of course none of the males of the Bar Cynster are alike and why should they be? In this story, the listener is treated to a clear characterization of Vane Cynster, Devil Cynster's second in command. This story takes you on a wonderful journey wrapped in a hint of mystery, passion, and love. Vane is a typical Cynster male, while his female counterpart, Miss Patience Debbington shows you don't have be born a Cynster to make others bend to your will.
From 1 to 10, I will rank it in 8
When Patience was jealous of Vane's cousin and they meet at the fountain
I don't know.
The plot was quite decent, but I found my self laughing at the amount of description and detail for the many sex scenes
A Rake's Vow is another of Stephanie Laurens amazing Cynster novels. The storyline was not my favorite of the four I have listened to, but who can resist a Cynster.
Patience and Vane. Patience was strong and willful, I like seeing that in a romance novel; no mamby-pamby females for me.
Vane. Simon Prebble is the only one who can do the Bar Cynster voices as far as I am concerned. The deep rumble, the stern, forceful tenor, both very sexy. I think he does the other voice really great also. Being a diehard Dick Hill fan, it is difficult to listen to women perform male voices although there are some who do a fairly good job, however, it is wonderful to know that there is another very strong, sexy male voice to perform romance novels. I will always listen to Simon Prebble.
The relationship between Vane and Patience kept me anxious and aroused (during their lovemaking) and there were a few places I laughed.
WOW !! I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a good, strong romance with intrigue and suspense.
