    What three words best describe Katherine Kellgren and Patricia Briggs (introduction) ’s voice?

    The narrator did well enough. I don't consider her one of the best in the business but she does well and keeps the story moving and engaging.


    Any additional comments?

    I was surprised by the story after the authors introduction about how this story wasn't supposed to be very good being one of her earlier works. I found the story engaging and interesting. I liked it enough to get the second book in the series.

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

    For a basic and easy read this is a fine book. I wouldn't rave about this book or make a point to tell a friend about the book.

    I really dislike romances that don't allow relationships to develop. I feel that this is an easy out for the writer. I like more interaction between the love interests. I want to be able to feel that I was there while the couple grew to know each other and when the book ends feel that the relationship, if real, would last.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked that the Monica is a hardworking woman. I like that she has emotional flaws.

But for twenty-four year old Rush Finlay, she is the only thing that has ever been off limits. His famous father’s guilt money, his mother’s desperation to win his love, and his charm are the three reasons he has never been told no.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It wasn't painful to listen to but not a great listen. I had nothing better to listen to while working so I listened to the entire book, other wise I would have given up on it part of the way through it.

    I felt that the story was too immature. There was no real exploration of the characters, they just wanted each other for no explainable reason. I felt that the story was a decent outline of a what could have been a good story if the characters could have been allowed to develop over time.

    I have read and listened to many books and this was just too weak of a story line to really like or enjoy.

    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved that the story is a really well written book. And even though the cover give the idea of lots of sex - it is very clean. I let my 14 year daughter listen and she loves them.


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

    Hard to put down


    Any additional comments?

    If you are of a more conservative in the content you like to listen to don't let the "covers" put you off- very enjoyable and clean. If you need lots of sex in your books - this isn't for you.

    Great book-fun listen. I'm on book 5 and still enjoying them.

    Amelia Peabody inherited two things from her father: a considerable fortune and an unbendable will. The first allowed her to indulge in her life's passion. Without the second, the mummy's curse would have made corpses of them all.

    Have you listened to any of Barbara Rosenblat’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Rosenblat is a master in the business. She adds to the story in such a way that it would almost be a shame to read the book and miss out on her performance.


    Any additional comments?

    The story is fun and light. Not too easy to figure out yet not so difficult that you end the book trying to figure out just how all the pieces were propertied to fit together. The story is good, but the addition of Rosenblat as the narrator makes it performance that should not be missed.

    On a rainy Southern night, Jade Sperry endured a young woman's worst nightmare at the hands of three local hell-raisers. Robbed of her youthful ideals and at the center of scandal and tragedy, Jade ran as far and as fast as she could. But she never forgot the sleepy "company town" where every man, woman, and child was dependent on one wealthy family.

    Would you be willing to try another book from Sandra Brown? Why or why not?

    This is the first book of Sandra Brown that I have either listened to or read. And I am curious to listen to another to see what else she has to offer. This book was intense I found myself almost agitated by the events like I had been apart of them in some small degree.


    Could you see Breath of Scandal being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I could see Breath of Scandal on Lifetime.


    Any additional comments?

    This book had some intense moments. I think it would be difficult for anyone who had been a victim themselves in a violent crime. I found myself being drawn into the story and sharing the characters sense of impotence when all normal avenues of help and justice were shut to her.
