    Rupert, the young Earl of Westerholme, returns home from the war - and Anna, a housemaid, falls hopelessly in love with him. But they can never be together - Rupert is engaged to the snobbish and awful Muriel. And anyway, Anna is only a servant. Or so everybody thinks.

    You can forecast how this will end, but it's sweet and I still loved hearing how it unfolds. Love Davina Porter!!!

    Nineteen-year-old Harriet Morton leads a dreary existence. Her ballet class is her only joy. When Father won't let her travel on a ballet tour to South America, Harriet creates a clever ruse that covers her escape and triggers an experience far beyond her dreams.

    James says: "A Treat"
    "Slow to start but worth it"
    Overall

    It started out a little slow. But, once it gets going, it's a very good story. I grew to like the narrater who seemed a bit cold at first.

    The edge of the Roman Empire is a volatile place; the tribes of the North dwell near its borders. These hinterlands are the homeland of Gaius Petreius Ruso's slave, Tilla, who has scores of her own to settle there: Her tribespeople, under the leadership of the mysterious Stag Man, are fomenting a rebellion, and her former lover is implicated in the murder of a soldier. Ruso, once again pulled into a murder investigation, is appalled to find that Tilla is still spending time with the prime suspect.

    Michelle says: "Roman Britain discovered"
    "Great follow up"
    Overall

    The character development continues. The story is great. If you liked Medicus, you'll like this one, too.

    Gaius Petrius Ruso is a divorced and down-on-his-luck army doctor who has made the rash decision to seek his fortune in an inclement outpost of the Roman Empire, namely Britannia. After a 36-hour shift at the army hospital, he succumbs to a moment of weakness and rescues an injured slave girl, Tilla, from the hands of her abusive owner. And before he knows it, Ruso is caught in the middle of an investigation into the deaths of prostitutes working out of the local bar.

    Lehua says: "Took Me by Surprise"
    "Enjoyable!"
    Overall

    I really liked this book. It was a good murder mystery set in interesting times with interesting characters. The narrater was very good. What more could you want?

  • Master and Commander: Aubrey/Maturin Series, Book 1

    Story
    (784)

    This, the first in the splendid series of Jack Aubrey novels, establishes the friendship between Captain Aubrey, Royal Navy, and Stephen Maturin, ship's surgeon and intelligence agent, against the thrilling backdrop of the Napoleonic wars. Details of life aboard a man-of-war in Nelson's navy are faultlessly rendered: the conversational idiom of the officers in the ward room and the men on the lower deck, the food, the floggings, the mysteries of the wind and the rigging, and the road of broadsides as the great ships close in battle.

    Frank says: "Choice of Narrators"
    "How did this book get such high ratings?"
    Overall

    I couldn't finish this book. The constant smacking, mouth sounds from the reader drove me crazy! The story was boring and full of nautical jargon that meant nothing to a landlubber. Maybe I could have gotten into it if it weren't for the reader, I'll never know and I'll never go back and finish this book.
