    An arrogant duke does the unthinkable - he falls in love with his mistress.... She raced onto the green, desperate to stop a duel. In the mêlée, Jocelyn Dudley, Duke of Tresham, was shot. To his astonishment, Tresham found himself hiring the servant as his nurse. Jane Ingleby was far too bold for her own good. Her blue eyes were the sort a man could drown in - were it not for her impudence. She questioned his every move, breached his secrets, touched his soul. When he offered to set her up in his London town house, love was the last thing on his mind.

    What did you like best about More than a Mistress? What did you like least?

    I liked how the marriage was revealed. It was a surprised. I hated how he treated her when he found out the truth about her. He really upset me!!


    Would you ever listen to anything by Mary Balogh again?

    No, I tried two other book by her. I really don't like her style of writing, Her stories are always too slow to start and she adds way too much un-wanted details.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The out coming at the end.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    Less details.

    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.

    What disappointed you about Soulless?

    The story is sooooo slow! The narrator made it worst! I have no idea what they are saying!! And she completely suck when she's making a guys' voice. I heard better! For those of you who think she did a good job, you obviously haven't heard a good narrator. Wish I never listen to those reviews. Lies!!


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Emily Gray?

    Rosalyn Landor. She's very good with Scottish accent and English Accent. And it's very cleared plus she's great with the males voice.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    NO!!!!!!!!!!!

    Starting from the begining of the serie, Wraith was my favorite of the brothers. I always like a bad boy with some dark secret. I don't know, something about taming the lion and carefully peeling the wrapper to see the beautiful present within the ulgy wrapper. This book did not disappoint me one bit.

    With his tawny mane, battle-hewn brawn, and ferocious roar, Angus “The Lion” MacDonald is the most fearsome warrior Lady Gwendolen has ever seen - and she is his most glorious conquest. Captured in a surprise attack on her father's castle, Gwendolen is now forced to share her bed with the man who defeated her clan. But, in spite of Angus's overpowering charms, she refuses to surrender her innocence without a fight. With her stunning beauty, bold defiance, and brazen smile, Gwendolen is the most infuriating woman Angus has ever known - and the most intoxicating.

    The Lion, Angus. :)

    No

    The second book was really not as good as the first book. However, the chemistry between the hero and heroine was just was great. This book was about trust. I didn't like much of how it ended. I wish she add more to the ending. I always feel as though it was quite rushed, even in book one. The feelings at the ending was expressed quite fast and then it ended just like that. I didn't get to enjoy it as much. I thought the heroine forgave Angus too quickly. I mean, I understand why Angus has his doubts but still... The author could have dragged the ending on just a bit longer and tortured Angus just a bit more. :)

    This is a great start to the trilogy. I was instantly drawn to Duncan the moment he entered the story, which was at the beginning! I like the chemistry between the hero and the heroine. The way Anthony does Duncan's voice is to die for!

    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Probably

    I like the first two book. I didn't like this one as much. I thought it was a poor ending to the trilogy. Not as great as The McCabe Trilogy by Maya Banks.

    Goodness, this book moves so slow. Once again, here's another book of a weak heroine. It is said in the book several times that she isn't a timid woman but it seems to me that the Author doesn't know what she's talking about because this heroine is not just timid but spineless! I kept waiting for her to finally step up and show some real emotions, some anger and back bone BUT nothing! Seriously, I know that back in the old days, maybe women are a little on the "MEN RULES" side but come on! It's a BOOK! Give the heroine a little more back bone!! A little more pride!! Anyway, I was hoping to like this book so I can finish the trilogy but after reading this ridiculous first book, I can no longer go on. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE STOP WRITING A HEROINE WHO DOES NOTHING BUT CAUSE TROUBLE WHERE EVER SHE GOES!
