    Lydia Slaughter understands the games men play - both in and out of the bedroom. Not afraid to bend the rules to suit her needs, she fleeces Will Blackshear outright. The Waterloo hero had his own daring agenda for the gaming tables of London's gentlemen's clubs. But now he antes up for a wager of wits and desire with Lydia, the streetwise temptress who keeps him at arm's length. A kept woman in desperate straits, Lydia has a sharp mind and a head for numbers. She gambles on the sly, hoping to win enough to claim her independence.

    I almost stopped reading this one. I kept hitting the chapter skip button waiting for "interesting" to happen. Finally the middle of part 2 got interesting.

    The Harris List of Covent Garden Ladies, that wickedly witty annual register of the city's light-skirts, was once a grand London tradition. Now, as all of Europe is celebrating the end of the long wars, the scheming Lord Marstoke has revived it - and transformed it into a weapon to be used against his runaway fiancée and the old enemy who helped her escape.

    It was very annoying to try to hear this book. No matter what listening device I tried, the sound was foggy. I even re-downloaded it thinking perhaps there was a problem when I downloaded it initially but nothing worked. Purchase it at your own listening peril.

    Empress Elizabeth of Austria, known as "Sisi", is the Princess Diana of 19th-century Europe. Famously beautiful, as captured in a portrait with diamond stars in her hair, she is unfulfilled in her marriage to the older Emperor Franz Joseph. Sisi has spent years evading the stifling formality of royal life on her private train or yacht or, whenever she can, on the back of a horse. Captain Bay Middleton is dashing, young, and the finest horseman in England. He is also impoverished, with no hope of buying the horse needed to win the Grand National....

    As I was reading this book I constantly related it to Princess Diana, not realizing that there was in fact a Sisi in history. Surprising how their lives compared. The author did a good job holding my attention.

    Story

    I liked this book. I continued to look forward to finding out "what happened" as I read through it. I don't know if anyone else noticed that the narrator pronounces the word "grimace" with a long "a". It really rubbed me the wrong way. It seemed that the word must have appeared at least 50 times in the book and I noticed each of the 50 times that she mispronounced it. And it wasn't because she's British because other British narrators pronounce it with a short "a". I tolerated the book anyway because of the good story.

    From the #1 New York Times best-selling author comes an epic saga of intrigue and mystique set in Edwardian England. Cavendon Hall is home to two families, the aristocratic Inghams and the Swanns who serve them. With World War I looming, both families will find themselves tested in ways they never thought possible. Loyalties will be challenged and betrayals will be set into motion. In this time of uncertainty, one thing is sure: these two families will never be the same again.

    I typically focus on long books but with slight hesitation because sometimes they're boring. This one didn't really get good until Part 2. Part 1 was slow. I did finish it and it was tolerable.

    And as usual, it was another very good Mary Balogh story. This was a great fairy tale but I couldn't put it down, so to speak. I loved it. Also enjoyed Roslyn Landor's performance. Great combination of author and narrator equals a great review.

    When Julia Conley hears that she has inherited a house outside London from an unknown great-aunt, she assumes it’s a joke. She hasn't been back to England since the car crash that killed her mother when she was six, an event she remembers only in her nightmares. But when she arrives at Herne Hill to sort through the house - with the help of her cousin Natasha and sexy antiques dealer Nicholas - bits of memory start coming back.

    Because I read a lot of books, I tend to encounter very similar plots. However, this one kept me guessing and I, like the main characters, enjoy a good puzzle, so it was fun following them through their logic and research as they fitted the pieces together.

No one, not even her family, knows that she cannot hear. Content with her life of seclusion, Eveline has taught herself to read lips and allows the outside world to view her as daft. But when an arranged marriage into a rival clan makes Graeme Montgomery her husband, Eveline accepts her duty -unprepared for the delights to come.
