    Lady Philippa Marbury is...odd. The brilliant, bespectacled daughter of a double marquess cares more for books than balls, for science than the season, and for laboratories than love. She's looking forward to marrying her simple fiancé and living out her days quietly with her dogs and her scientific experiments. But before that, Pippa has two weeks to experience all the rest - 14 days to research the exciting parts of life. It's not much time, and to do it right she needs a guide familiar with London's darker corners.

    Story
    Where does One Good Earl Deserves a Lover rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have been enjoying this unique premise of a gentleman eschewing the Ton for personal reasons, and then the adventures they encounter as love brings them back, more or less, to the world they left. And it was time Cross stopped wallowing in the past!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of One Good Earl Deserves a Lover?

    Getting even at the rival "hell", by using the ex-fiance. What a stroke of genius, and the Earl sounded so innocent, every time he made a loud suggestion.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Phillippa Marbury firsts meets Cross in his office, and propositions him.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Centuries ago Acheron saved the human race by imprisoning an ancient evil bent on absolute destruction. Now that evil has been unleashed and it is out for revenge. As the twin to Acheron, Styxx hasn’t always been on his brother's side. They've spent more centuries going at each other's throats than protecting their backs. Now Styxx has a chance to prove his loyalty to his brother, but only if he's willing to trade his life and future for Acheron's.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Styxx to be better than the print version?

    As I have vision problems I really look forward to the audio version of books and this one was perfect! At points I had to pause as I was crying so much, which I haven't done for a long time. My thanks to both author and reader.


    What other book might you compare Styxx to and why?

    I'd compare this book most closely to Acheron -- it's amazing how Ms Kenyon went back and told the story during the same time period yet was able to convincingly show a completely different point of view. Kudos!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I enjoyed when Artemis joined the group planning to overthrow the Atlantean -- her mixed up phrases always make me chuckle. But the very best scene was when Apollo was delivered to Appolyme.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I cried every time Styx was betrayed by those he considered family.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a hard book to put down once started and yet I was so sad when I finished. One of the best of the Dark Hunter series.
