    In financial straits and on a sure path to spinsterhood, Venetia Milton thought her stay at the remote, ramshackle Arcane House, far from society's prying eyes, would be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to engineer her own ravishment. She was there to photograph the relics and artifacts collected by a highly secretive organization, founded two centuries earlier by an eccentric alchemist.

    Boring. Couldn't finish it, in spite of the great narration. Should be listed as a novel, not a romance.

    What's up Amanda??

    At four in the morning, the night of his 25th birthday, Baron Montford finds himself quite sauced with a large group of gentlemen in his library. Spurred on by revelry, pride, and drink, Montford takes on a wager he'll soon regret: to successfully seduce the virtuous Katherine Huxtable within the coming fortnight.

    Just thought you should know, that the word, "gown" does not have 2 syllables and the word "help" sounds ridiculous when drawn out a full 3 second.

    I know, I know, you are very popular and work all the time and do 1 billion books a year. I just have to say that I do skip books that you have narrated because they just sound so contrived and silly and pretentious.

    Sorry, my dear. I just had to say it.

    PS We all know this is really for the publishers!

    Maybe a better editor would have helped? Quite a few lines were repeated and I kept thinking, "Wasn't that already said in the last chapter"? Kinda weird. Male voices were creepy!

When Jane’s father finally finds her a match, she’s married off to the dull, older silk merchant William Shore. Marriage doesn’t stop Jane from flirtation, however, and when the king’s chamberlain, Will Hastings, comes to her husband’s shop, Will knows King Edward will find her irresistible.

    I was really looking forward to a bit of a change from Regency, but this novel, though well read, had so much trivia about who married who, why and when and which uncles great nephews cousin....blah, blah, blah. Yawn!

    A second listen didn't help. I had to cringe when it talked of "a lazy southern drawl" and it was done with a fairly thick IRISH accent! Why do they did this to such lovely story? It's a shame, but I don't think I can recommend this one.

    Dangerously seductive and sinfully beautiful, Susanna Burney is society’s most sought after matchbreaker. Paid by wealthy parents to part unsuitable couples, she’s never yet failed to accomplish her mission of diverting a groom-to-be - until her final assignment brings her face-to-face with the man who’d once taught her an intimate lesson in heartache.

    This Regency story actually has more than 1 story line and/or 2 significant characters. I'll locate more of this author AND narrator, who was amazing!

    A public rape where the sweetheart and two others participates and the heroin enjoys it??

    Vanessa Fitzwilliam is in dire straits. Her father's death a year ago left her with a crumbling manor and a handful of old retainers relying on her for support. When the Duke of Northbridge sweeps into her life with a surprise proposal, Vanessa is tempted - but the arrogant duke believes her to be something she's not. Hardened by the ravages of war, Northbridge seeks a wife who will provide him with an heir but make no demands on his emotions. The scandalously experienced Vanessa, neither clinging nor innocent, seems the perfect choice. But Northbridge isn't prepared for her reluctance to accept him....

    Narrator had a rich, beautiful voice, but it only seemed to fit with the servants or other working class characters. Not sophisticated enough for members of the aristocracy.

    Also, recording quality was TERRIBLE!!! Sounded like she was in an echoing room but worse. Made a sound engineer I know listen to it and he said the narrator was, "off mic". I'm very surprised it was published that way.

And he was going after one of the most infamous of them all: Victoria Davidge, a cold-blooded seductress accused of murdering her husband. Trinity took up as a hired hand at her Arizona ranch, never expecting to find himself attracted to the fiery-haired fugitive, but the passionate beauty ignited his senses and tempted the hard-bitten loner to forget his lawful duty.
