Yes. I'm not a big Regency romance fan, but I loved this book. Stephanie Laurens's characters really came to life for me.
There were too many to pick one I liked.
Excellent narration. I have a hearing problem, so I'm always a little leery when it comes to British narrators because I often find them difficult to understand. That wasn't the case here.
I just Love the Allure of a Great Romance...a Pair of Rose Colored Glasses...some Fine Wine, and a Subscription to Audible...
Get ready to be swept away by the Cynster family. A ‘Regency- Era Historical’ novel that includes amazingly captivating characters that are smart, clever, and funny, dealing within the confines of this historic time, and presentation that society has imposed. In the first Cynster Novel, Devil’s Bride: A Cynster Novel, we meet the ravenous, sensually masculine, Sebastian. He is the eldest Cynster cousin and England’s most eligible bachelor, nicknamed Devil by his nursemaid at the age of 3.
In comes Honoria Prudence Wetherby, a wonderfully intelligent, strong-willed woman, whom he meets during a precarious situation. He immediately determines that she, and no other, is to be his duchess. Honoria has other plans, however, and there lies the tension. Yummy!
This is a smart novel with engaging characters. The plot is stimulating and encompasses the “thrill of passion and a tangled romance” along with the element of a “who done it” mystery. Stephanie Laurens has moved to the head of my list as one of my favorite authors. I also enjoyed listening to Simon Prebble, and felt that he did an amazing job with the narration. I have already purchased, based on this novel, the next 5 in the series.
I know that I will not be disappointed. Over 15 hours of entertainment for 1 credit!! You can not beat it!
The strong male lead
A fan of historical romances
There are many great scenes in the book.
While the outcome is predictable (ok let's face it this is a romance novel) the ride was fun. This is also entertaining because it is part of a series about a really adventuresome family.
sexy, exciting, unforgettable.
All of the Cynster books share the same close, strong family unity but this one leads the pack.
When Devil knows at almost first glance that fate had put Honoria in his path.
This was very good - held my interest--entertained away the miles! Included all the requirements for a satisfying romance - confident, protective hero & smart, independent heroine.
Yes, I actually found this to be rather entertaining!
I am most definitely NOT a Romance Novel reader. I quite happily went into this novel thinking a woman made a pact with the Devil and married him, however, I quickly found out that Devil is only a man. If you can overcome numerous references to HARD CHEST, LONG FINGERS, LONG LIPS (I must say I kept picturing long lips like a giraffe reaching down to plant a kiss), the story will catch your interest. Characters are well enough developed to create a bond with the reader. There are a few love scenes, more like very soft erotica, not as detailed as soft porn. The book is not so overwhelmingly directed toward the love scenes that the story becomes flimsy. I liked it.
The story was interesting right from the beginning to the end. The characters just made you want to know what was going to happen in their lives. The narrator did an amazing job of keeping me listening. I don't know about you but there are narrators and stories I can listen to over and over again and this is definitely one of those books.
I have listened to him in several other performances and he has always done an amazing job in all.
If I could have listened to it in one sitting I would have. I should point out that I purchased this book even though I had already heard it once before. I believe I have actually listened to this book three times in full over the last six or eight months.
Don't waste my listening time on boring work. This is worth my time and listen. Good story line and an intriguing introduction to another branch of the Tree of Bastion Boys Club.
Introduction of characters and story line had several levels.
He is completely believable, his Scots is worthy, his feminine tones believeable as well.
THere really needs to be some kind of warning or rating system for books. I do like romance novels but not the steamy kind. I try to stay away from them. This book was way too steamy it needed a warning. My young daughter likes to listen to some of my books on her ipod. But This is off limits for her. THere should be a way to delete books from your library. Maybe there is I just don't know it yet.
One of the best, most entertaining audio books i have in my library.
when Devil announcd Honoria Prudence was going to be his duchess...prior to telling her, Devil never asks!!
Charles shooting devil and not killing him.
Simon Prebble is a fascinating narrator..he brings characters to
