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 would have this looped for continuous play
combining Jane Eyre and wonderful love scenes
Wow! she uses her voice to create an entire cast of characters
a "how to" have great sex
one of the best books I have read that combines what I love in classic novels with realistic sensuality
The top book
The trip to London
Both of the leads
Yes I have
I listen to this book about ones a month I love this book
I have listened to the book several times. Narrated as perfect as one can get making for easy listening.
no but I shall
yes . That is yet to happen
This is certainly a different kind of story line and not a bad one however I felt as if some parts of the story could have been developed a bit more and perhaps it would have drawn me in more. By all means, if you're an Elizabeth Hoyt fan, do take a listen. It's worth a credit. I just personally found the heroine and her mother-in-law a tad too unbelievable. (I'm probably just being cynical.) I was also a little bothered by the short story of The Raven Prince -- it's basically the Greek Myth of Eros & Psyche (great story by the way!) Maybe I missed her crediting that story as the basis of her Raven Prince but if she didn't than it's kind of lame to use it and not credit it.
Winter's coming -- almost time to huddle up with my ipod and hot chocolate!
This is a hard review for me because while I enjoyed it for the most part, it definitely jumps a shark at one point and after that, well you have suspend reality and hang on until the end. I don't want to give any spoilers because it is a fun listen.
Moira Quirk does a good job. And I loved the dog.
