My name is Irene and I'm a lifelong bookaholic. A few years ago, I started adding audiobooks and I'm so happy I joined Audible in 2015 :-))
Excellent romance in the best historical romance series! I read this years ago & I'm now collecting the audiobooks. No wimpy women! Absolutely worth the time & money. Enjoy!
I love the story so I thought I wanted to get the audio book as well. Unfortunately the reader makes the hero sound like an 80 year old telling war stories to his chums, and the erotic scenes sounded as if he were reporting from a war zone.
I enjoy most of Laurens' s books, and I really like Devil Cynster, overbearing rake that he is (well, he did become duke of a very large holding and fortune at age 15).
He pretty much meets his match in Honoria, who stymies him from the time they meet. The murder of one younger cousin sets up the introduction to readers of the current set of eligible rakes of the family.
The story is sound, the characters very interesting, and the murder investigation draws things together.
I have reread it several times, despite my copies vanishing with visitors. I finally stopped that leak by getting audio.
Simon Prebble does a good job, once again. His try at women's voices is no worse than most, and is only fitting that a man with a pleasant baritone interpret a collection of male characters. I feel that it would have been disastrous to use a female narrator.
Laurens's Regency universe of the amazing, fabulously wealthy ducal clan PLUS Simon Prebble's magnificent baritone voice with his consummate acting skill across lines of class, region and gender & unrivaled exposition of passion EQUAL a wonderful listen and re-listen. An excellent use of a credit!

Ms. Lauren's wasted many good words with this listen! It's a simple plot that is all set up in the first two chapters that then goes on, and on, and on, with no purpose. The book becomes tedium au naseum by the ending chapters. I've listened to other books by Ms. Lauren's and they were five star! If it weren't for the stellar performance of Mr. Pebble, this listen would have hit the discard pile by chapter three. I don't recommend this book to anyone who wants more action. If it's a rainy day, nap inducing listen wanted, this really fits the bill!
Love Devil's Bride. From the beginning to the end it was extremely hard to put down. The murder mystery, finding love and dealing with the inestimable Cynster Family; Thoughly Enjoyed It !!!
Can't wait to see what Fate has in store for Vane Cynster !!!
Bodice ripper language got in way of potentially good story.
Not this genre, just this author. Never again.
He's great. He's the reason I got the book
Unbelievably fake passion. So many heaving chests and throbbing thighs.
Can't you protect reader from something this poorly written?
