    The Earl of St. Merryn needs a woman. His intentions are purely practical - he simply wants someone sensible and suitably lovely to pose as his betrothed for a few weeks among polite society. He has his own agenda to pursue, and a false fiancée will keep the husband-hunters at bay while he goes about his business. The easiest solution is to hire a paid companion.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Paid Companion to be better than the print version?

    In some ways. The novel idea of having a male reader was perfect for this story. He gave the Earl's sarcasm perfect pitch and was oh, so funny.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Arthur, Earl of St. Merryn. He, unlike many of his male contemporaries, was willing to acknowledge women had brains. At that time, that kind of thinking was unheard of.


    What about Michael Page’s performance did you like?

    He was obviously having a great time with the characters. He seemed to have read the story ahead of time (many sound like it was the first time they'd seen the book) and had the characters firmly in his head.


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

    Yes, and I'd started it in late afternoon. It was torture shutting down and going to bed at 2am, and I started listening again as soon as I woke up.


    Any additional comments?

    Would love to have Michael Page read more of Amanda Quick!
