The story was well laid out, the main characters were perfect, the narrator did a great job on all the different characters and made them all stand out.
This booked flowed so well, no slow parts, no annoying heroines etc
Very talented in being able to make each characters 'voice; their own and very different. I will be looking for other books with her narration
The end was the perfect mixture of anguish and joy when they are brought back together
I will be keeping this book in mind to listen to again and again in the future.

What I mean by the headline is the writer didn't sell us some hot guy - she sold us a real guy. She didn't sell us some babe - she sold us a real woman and she makes the story organically mature into a love story - really good.
I loved this book. The love story was heartwarming with main characters who did not possess the typical "flawless beauty." Plenty of mystery, intrigue, great sex, and compelling friendships. Narration was terrific. One of the best books in this genre.
I loved this story. The fairytale of the Raven was excellent. This was a good story line. The characters in the story didn't kept me guessing and when I wasn't wondering what was coming next I found myself trying to guess where the fairytale was going.
This was my first Moira Quirk performance.
I laughed and was totally entertained. This is the best of the Prince stories.
Say something about yourself!
The main characters have flaws, and more dimension, than you often come across in a romance. And I really enjoy the start of each chapter, as the author intertwines a fairy tale of sorts, relating to her main story.
The Earl -- he's pockmarked, and ugly, quoting Mrs. Wren, yet for all that, it makes him so much more likable and interesting as the book progresses.
Just the pragmatic way Anna takes life in stride, even though she has been hurt so much in the past
Elizabeth Hoyt has a special way of writing, that is very different from so many romance writers, with a good historic background.
I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
As with any Elizabeth Hoyt novel I have listened to, this one is also well written. Ms Hoyt can breathe life into her characters and we can see them carrying out the story in our mind's eye. Did I mention she is very good at writing sex scenes as well.
The earl is insecure about his looks because he has a pock marked face. This causes him to doubt that anyone can love him. Anna is capable of looking beyond his disfigurement to see the honorable man but Anna thinks that she is too far below his station to even think of a romance. The brothel masquerade is her solution to her desires.
Moira Quirk as always does a fantastic job with the delivery of the story
Loved the story...read it once already and fell in love with Ms Hoyt's writing style. So for me audio book was the next step. Moira Quirk does not disappoint, but I was looking for better voice distinction. There are scenes where I found the supporting characters interpretation by the narrator a little over the top :-/ other than that its a hard to put down/pause read<3
