    He would go to Hell.... At the Iron Mountain Home for Boys, there was nothing but time. Time to burn and time to kill, time for two young orphans to learn that life isn’t won without a fight. Julian survives only because his older brother, Michael, is fearless and fiercely protective. When tensions boil over and a boy is brutally killed, there is only one sacrifice left for Michael to make: He flees the orphanage and takes the blame with him.

    Overall

    I have listened to John Hart and Scott Sowers in the past and enjoyed the collaboration. This time my expectations were truly surpassed with the performance of them both. I didn't want it to end and I would welcome the return of any characters that made it out of this book alive to return for the sequel. This story was so exciting and the characters so complex...that I didn't know who to like or who to despise. Nothing is clear cut in this one. And it works!

    Newly widowed and desperate to protect her estate and beloved servants from her malevolent brother-in-law, Martha Russell conceives a daring plan. Or rather, a daring plan to conceive. After all, if she has an heir on the way, her future will be secured. Forsaking all she knows of propriety, Martha approaches her neighbor, a London exile with a wicked reputation, and offers a strictly business proposition: a month of illicit interludes... for a fee.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The narrator was mediocre and the story line had (unfulfilled) potential, but OMG it was hard to get through this one. I kept hoping that something great was going to happen or that one of the characters would compel me to feel something besides irritation....but noooo. It was dry and very forgettable. Giving the characters a little depth would help to add a star.


    Has A Lady Awakened turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, I am a fan of historical romance. One bad book didn't spoil the whole genre for me.


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

    SE's performance was unremarkable.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Pride. I was proud of myself for actually listening to the end.

    Meet Peter Brown, a young Manhattan emergency room doctor with an unusual past that is just about to catch up with him. His morning begins with the quick disarming of a would-be mugger, followed by a steamy elevator encounter with a sexy young pharmaceutical rep, topped off by a visit with a new patient - and from there Peter's day is going to get a whole lot worse and a whole lot weirder.

    Chuck says: "Great book and great narrator"
    "I didn't want it to end!"
    Overall

    This is such an audible "page-turner". There was excitement from beginning to end! My only problem is trying to locate another book by this author. I hope the Dr. Character stays on the Table of Contents. Great Listen.

    One evening, Danny, an East End cockney who works as a garage mechanic, takes his girlfriend up to the West End to celebrate their engagement. He crosses the path of Spencer Craig, a West End barrister tipped to be the youngest Queen's Counsel of his generation. A few hours later Danny is arrested for murder and later is sentenced to 22 years in prison.

    Josh says: "Fun, Predictable Fluff"
    "A worthwhile listen"
    Overall

    This is definitely worth listening to. The reader is engrossing and Archer is at his best in this one. I didn't want it to end.
