    Gina was forced into marriage with the Duke of Girton at an age when she'd have been better off in a schoolroom than a ballroom. Directly after the ceremony, her handsome spouse promptly fled to the continent, leaving the marriage unconsummated and Gina quite indignant. Now, she is one of the most well-known ladies in London... living on the edge of scandal - desired by many men, but resisting giving herself to any one. Finally, Camden, the Duke of Girton, has returned home, to discover that his naÏve bride has blossomed into the toast of the town.

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

    Yes, because it was enjoyable and anyone who likes this genre will find it entertaining.


    What about Justine Eyre’s performance did you like?

    She has a lovely voice, she brings personality to each character and has appropriate inflections in her voice that accurately reflect the characters feelings. There are narrators I just can't stand, but this voice I could listen to all day.


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

    I don't do much sitting. But I am lucky enough to work at home and when I work outside the home can take my ipod. So I did listen to this consistently and only turned it off to sleep.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't expect an earth shattering story line, it's fun and light hearted with characters that are flawed but undoubtedly likable.

    He's a duke. He's a mathematical genius. He can't talk and he's locked in a lunatic asylum. Only a modest Quaker girl can reach him, but when she helps him to escape, she's swept into his glittering aristocratic world, her life torn apart by his desperate attempt to save himself.

    Story

    I love many different types of books but I do not review them often. This book was quite frankly amazing. Between the writing and the spectacular performance of Nicholas Boulton I listened to it in 2 days and only stopped when I had to. It's rare to have a book that can sweep you away into another place and time but this one did that for me. The supporting cast is just as colorful and full of life as the main characters. The description isn't what made me listen. As a matter of fact I was pretty sure I wasn't going to like it. Give it a chance and I hope you enjoy!

    This may be my very favorite romance EVER. I love the cinderella take on the story and Kate, well....Kate is first rate and I adore her character. I would highly recommend this story to anyone who likes this genre. I also love English accents so the narration was perfect.

    I loved every minute of this story so much it was hard to take my earbuds out to get some sleep! It was touching and heartwarming and I was so sad to see it end. Didn't see the twist at the end coming and I want more from this author!

  • Soulless: An Alexia Tarabotti Novel

    Victorian romance mixes seamlessly with elegant prose and biting wit—and werewolves—in Gail Carriger’s delightful debut novel. Soulless introduces Alexia Tarabotti, a parasol-wielding Londoner getting dangerously close to spinster status. But there are more important things than finding a husband. For Alexia was born without a soul, giving her the ability to render any vampire or werewolf completely powerless.

    Story

    The reviews were so mixed on this one I almost I almost didn't get it, but I would of missed out on a really great story. It was the reference to Amelia Peabody that sold me. I love those stories and I wanted something fun and light hearted. PLUS finally a book with a werewolf as a main character! The tempo is a bit off in some area's but not enough for me to really care, I can put two and two together.

    Anyone who like humor, whit and the supernatural should give this a listen!

    Enchanted by a powerful spell, Highland laird Drustan MacKeltar slumbered for nearly five centuries hidden deep in a cave, until an unlikely savior awakened him. The enticing lass who dressed and spoke like no woman he'd ever known was from his distant future, where crumbled ruins were all that remained of his vanished world.

    Which character – as performed by Phil Gigante – was your favorite?

    Drustan, this narrator has a fantastic voice and while I found the female character a little bit annoying the over all narration was great and I just loved the males voice.


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

    Yes, I kept my ear buds in while working all day.


    Any additional comments?

    I've been just wanting to listen to light reads lately and this sounded fun. It was fun! The story is interesting, and a little different then others.
