    Lord Alec Knight, the most daring and handsome rogue in all of London, is a smooth-talking aristocrat with an abundance of high-society lady admirers. With his irresistible wit, lucky hand at the gaming tables, and enticing charisma, he can have any woman he wants. But when the only girl he would have considered marrying ties the knot with someone else, Alec realizes he doesn't want to be with just any lady - he wants to find the love of his life.

    What did you like best about One Night of Sin: A Novel? What did you like least?

    It was gutsy


    What was one of the most memorable moments of One Night of Sin: A Novel?

    The sex scenes are pretty raunchy


    What didn’t you like about Angele Masters’s performance?

    She had no expression or voice modulation at all. All the characters sounded like the same boring unemotional person.


    Was One Night of Sin: A Novel worth the listening time?

    It was okay, it had me wanting to stay with it


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator spoiled the experience

    Patience Creighton has devoted her life to running her father's boarding school. But when the enigmatic master of the estate appears at her door, battered and unconscious, the young headmistress suddenly finds her livelihood - and her heart - in the hands of one dangerously handsome gentleman. At twenty-five, Patience Creighton is already a spinster. The busy headmistress of Rosemere always expected a dashing man to sweep her off her feet and take her away…but that man never came. And since her father's death, keeping the school running and her mother happy has been plenty to keep her occupied.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator - what was she trying to do? Terrible accents, terrible inflection absolutely no feeling what so ever! A disaster!!!


    How could the performance have been better?

    Emotion! Common sense! Her male characters all sounded like either drunk or mentally deficient!


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

    Yes

    Grace Brisbane will do anything to save her family from poverty, even marry for money. But to catch the eye of a worldly noble, inexperienced Grace will need to learn the secrets of seduction. And who better to teach her than a man whose life is devoted to pleasure? Alex Weston is the top attraction at Lavender Hills, the all-male brothel that caters to the desires of London’s most fashionable women. His beauty and sexual prowess are legendary, yet his seemingly charmed life masks an ugly truth. Alex is a prisoner in a gilded cage, blackmailed into service. He wants only freedom - until the night Grace Brisbane walks through his door.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator - she made the main character sound like a wimpy kid with no substance

    The ending - Alex needed to resolve his issues


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story line was original - interesting


    What didn’t you like about Fiona Underwood’s performance?

    She made no effort to make Alex sound like a man or to give him any personality at all.


    Do you think To Seduce an Earl needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    It needs a follow-up to finish off Alex's story but maybe the main character could be Patience. Maybe they all go to London for the season for Patience and Alex meets up with his brother again.


    Any additional comments?

    Just don't use Fiona Underwood as the narrator again

    Where beautiful but bold Lillian Bowman quickly learned that her independent American ways weren’t entirely “the thing.” And the most disapproving of all was insufferable, snobbish, and impossible Marcus, Lord Westcliff, London’s most eligible aristocrat.

    Where does It Happened One Autumn rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is right up there amongst the best I've listened to. I didn't want to turn it off.


    What other book might you compare It Happened One Autumn to and why?

    I thought the first book in this Wallflower series was beautiful but this one is everything that first one was and more. So full of personality, humour and sensuality.


    What does Rosalyn Landor bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Rosalyn is brilliant. Along with Davina Porter I have never listened to anyone better. Her characterisations are incredible.


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

    I did listen to it in one sitting!!!!! It had me completely entranced from beginning to end.


    Any additional comments?

    I was so entranced by the first two wallflower books I couldn't wait to download the rest of the series.... Then imagine my disappointment to discover the next three books aren't available in Australia. I am gutted!

    Jamie Fraser knows from his time-traveling wife Claire that, no matter how unlikely it seems, America will win the Revolutionary War. But that truth offers little solace, since Jamie realizes he might find himself pointing a weapon directly at his own son - a young officer in the British army. And Jamie isn't the only one with a tormented soul - for Claire may know who wins the conflict, but she certainly doesn't know whether or not her beloved Jamie survives.
