Author, Attorney, Advocate
I enjoyed this book even though I'm not really into romance novels. It helped that it was written in a different era. So if you like romance novels set in historical times, you'll enjoy this. Well written.
I enjoyed this book, filled with drama, suspense and intrigue. Not what I expected when I picked this one.
Day dreaming book lover!
I laughed and I cried. What more do you want from a romance?! The narrator convinced me that there was more than one character speaking and it was easy to identify who was speaking. If you want a suspenseful romance, this is it.
I would say I would rack this at 4, it does get dry in some parts but then again it is a page turner/
Lover of romance. Mother of 2.
I honestly had no expectations for this book. I had only ever read one Mary Balogh book and had never listened to one.
Rosalyn did a fair job; better than many but not as good as quite a few.
This book had a solid plot, some of which I saw coming long before it occurred and quite a bit more that surprised me but fit right in where and when needed. I will definitely read the next book in this series. I laughed quite a bit. The sarcasm that the hero expelled was the surprise and I loved every bit of it.
I liked that although it was a typical love story it wasn't 100% predictable.
I liked that the main female character did not cower despite how intimidating the main male was.
The Duke of Tresham
It made me laugh a couple of times unexpectedly.
The intimate scenes involving the mistress are not extremely explicit but the subject matter is not boring or timid either.
There is a certain predictability to romance novels, I understand it expect and even quite enjoy it as a fan of the genre. But this book is not even moderately interesting. . Even if the narrator was fabulous (and that was not the case) it wouldn't have saved this annoying story. The accent was way overblown and I never want to have to imagine a quizzing glass as the most interesting part of a story.
From first paragraph to last this was a fun story to listen to. Ms Landor is one of the best narrators of this kind of novel, and Mary Balogh always provides an excellent read.
I might try the author again but not the narrator
It's a typical corn ball romance
She made the hero sound like a dowdy old English person. I've heard female narrators do a very convincing male voice, but this woman was so incredibly distracting to listen to. I picture an old wrinkly English man as the hero now. Thanks.
