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.
I felt the writing was insipid and the interpretation even more so. The pace of the story and reading could have been faster, although I'm not sure it would have improved it much. This was a painful read/listen.
I enjoy the genre, but, I guess, not this author.
I didn't care for Rosalyn Landor's voice or reading at all. My bad for not listening to the sample and realizing that I have listened to another of her readings and didn't like it either. Not saying I could have done better, but good grief the pacing was slow and characterizations were far too pompous.
Angelique, Tresham's sister. She didn't advance the story and her dialogue was annoying.
From here on out I will ALWAYS listen to the sample. Thank goodness I got this title on sale!
I absolutely hated the heroine in this story. She emasculated the man the whole book. Ugh! If you like to read about men being pushed around and brow beaten, this book is for you.There is a difference between standing up for yourself and just being plain mean! And the narrator was "perfectly horrid." This book got 2 stars because this author can write well.
Audible addicted love mystery,lately stuck on love story. Mother of 1 Labrador and 1 perfect man. Work way too hard, and so ready to be retired
I'm not a big fan of the reader she bored me I was about to deleted it,but gave it another listen closer to the end it got better for I love a strong confidence man and a strong well women probably want get the next two.
This was a good book, however I didn't love the way the narrator read the male lead. The narrator makes him sound like he's in his 50's not 20's. I finally got past it and thoroughly enjoyed the book.
About three hours into the book and I am having a really hard time envisioning the hero being attractive... The narrator makes him sound like a pompous and creepy OLD man, not the 26 year old hottie he is suppose to be. He is far from seductive sounding... But besides that, so far so good...:0)
