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?
I cannot finish listening to this book. I have over nine hours left and I cannot imagine going through the same scenes for this long.
Beware, the following may be considered a spoiler.
Perhaps, Devil will start seeing Honoria as more than good looking female well bred enough to make Duchess instead of a mistress. Those are her only options it appears. She does find him very attractive and his seduction work on her rather well (she didn't have to read about in the author's words). But, still, she gets no other choice. Possibly that attitude changes as the characters grow through the book. But I could not wait any more. The problem is the overwrought, over symbolized sex scenes. I appreciate a good sex scene with a passionate build up and lots of emotion, but the scenes in this book just wear me out.
The voice actor does a very nice job with this material. Good female and male voices. Devil is sufficiently macho, Honoria is quite haughty. Very well done.
A very enjoyable read with lots of exquisitely written passion. I thought the murder plot a little on the weak side but still well written. Simon Preblble is perhaps one of the best voice actors ever!
I liked the performance, and because I've read the book several times I knew I liked the story. My only complaint is the performer seemed to think Devil was an 80 year old smoker.
All business but contemporary fun!
I wanted to like this book because as soon as you start reading you see its beautiful prose and a plot that throws you into a murdered body and the male and female leads stranded in a cottage for the night. However, the story's pace decelerates and stays flat until the very end. I am also sorry to say but I KNEW who the murderer is from the time he first appeared in the book. The hints were so obvious that it completely ruined the suspense.
No. The narration was completely over the top.
