    Christina Bennett had taken London society by storm. The ravishing beauty guarded the secret of her mysterious past until the night Lyon, Marquis of Lyonwood, stole a searching, sensuous kiss. An arrogant nobleman with a pirate's passions, he tasted the wildfire smoldering beneath Christina's cool charm and swore to possess her.... But the feisty and defiant Christina would not be so easily conquered. Mistress of her heart and of her fortune, she resisted Lyon's sensuous caresses.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Has everything a good historical romance should have.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    Don't let the beginning fool you. I must admit I almost didn't get past chapter one but forced myself. I didn't like the character voices at all at the beginning. I thought the men (especially Lyon) sounded creepy, not sexy and Christina's voice was like a baby rather than a strong young woman. Before I knew it I realized I was actually thoroughly enjoying myself. The story drags you in and soon you are rooting for Chrsitina, proud that she may be tiny and delicate but like a true lioness underneath the surface. This book will make you laugh in all the right places. It has everything a good historical romance should have. I got past my issues with the narrator and soon relaized each voice was pretty perfect for each charator. Rosalyn Landor is still my all time favorite narrator but in the end this one was pretty darned perfect.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I thought the narration was a little off on this one. The characters were flat and presented that way. The men's voices were distracting and Taylor's....ugh.


    Did Prince Charming inspire you to do anything?

    Almost not finish it

    Once upon a time...as a fair maiden lay weeping upon a cold tombstone, her heartfelt desire was suddenly made real before her: Tall, broad of shoulder, attired in gleaming silver and gold, her knight in shining armor had come to rescue his damsel in distress.... Hailed worldwide as one of the most romantic novels of all time, Jude Deveraux's dazzling best seller "will capture your heart - and hold it" (Daily Herald, Chicago) with its breathtaking tale.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Great story but the narration was very distracting.


    What didn’t you like about Steve West’s performance?

    As much as I loved the story I have to say that the performance was irritating. When the narrator was using his "normal voice" it was great...but when he he was supposed to be talking as Dougless (or any female) it was the most irritating and whiney sound I have ever heard. It was terribly distracting and it took a lot away a lot of my enjoyment. I just wish the narrators could always use their normal voices.
