    When Hannah's caught watching her late husband's cousin debauch the maid in the library, she's mortified - but also intrigued. An unpaid companion to his aunt, she's used to being ignored. The black sheep of the family, Leo has nothing but his good looks and noble birth to recommend him. Hannah ought to be appalled at what she's witnessed, but there's something about Leo that draws her to him.

    The narrator was wonderful. The heroine lacked some spark that I can't put my finger on. Like she was just going through motions and not really invested in the romance. I still enjoyed the story and I think that was largely due to the wonderful narrator.

    Harriet, Duchess of Berrow, is tired of her title and the responsibilities that come along with it. Enough with proper tea parties and elegant balls; what Harriet really wants is to attend an outrageous soiree where she can unleash her wildest whims and desires. But to attend such an event - especially if the event in question is Lord Justinian Strange's rollicking fete, filled with noble rogues and rotters, risque - ladies and illicit lovers - would be certain scandal. That's why she must disguise herself.

    Witty, orphaned Tess Essex faces her duty: marry well and marry quickly, so she can arrange matches for her three sisters. But just when she begins to think that all might end well, one of her sisters bolts with a horse-mad young lord, and her own fiancé just plain runs away. Which leaves Tess contemplating marriage to the sort of man she wishes to avoid - one of London's most infamous rakes. Tess consents to marry him, but it may be for the worst reason of all. Absurd as she knows it to be, she may have fallen utterly in love....

    Story

    Susan (narrator) did a wonderful job of expressing the characters emotions and voices. I have not liked all of Susan's narrations finding her singsong in the past annoying. However she has improved and her dramatization of the dialogue is superb.
    The character development in this book was excellent. Each character had a personality that was recognizable and had depth. The story was creative, with sensuous and romantic love scenes that were not gratuitous but effective in developing the romance. The dialogue was natural and witty and one scene particularly poignant and realistic. Thank you Eloisa for a wonderful novel!

Together they seamlessly integrate an entire cast of characters and create the ambiance of Morocco, Italy and England, making this a wonderful and exciting listening experience.

    Story

    The narration was interesting with a man and a woman both narrating. I think I still prefer one person narrating. The story featured a lot of sex scenes but something fell flat with the romance and the characters. In addition some of this story was confusing. For instance, the author didn't remember One of the characters ages. The character was six and then seven months later she was five. Weird.

    This book was better than the other two previous in the series, in my opinion. I actually read the books and they read better than they narrate. The dialogue can be pretty awkward when actually spoken. The story was sweet, romantic and sexy.

    Jesse Sampson and her two younger sisters have lived a hard life on the streets of Seattle, Washington, for the past several years. Four years before, the Earth received its first visitors from space, causing mass fear. Alone in a world gone mad with just her sisters, Jesse has learned to use the darkness and the remains of the city to survive and keep what was left of her family alive. She has seen the savage side of human nature and finds they are not much different from the aliens who conquered the Earth.

    Nothing Great about this book for me. The narrator was just okay. The story was just okay. The characters were just okay. Seemed to be a little over dramatic for my taste. But I suppose things get a little dramatic when aliens take over your world.

    Thomas Carrick is a gentleman driven to control all aspects of his life. As the wealthy owner of Carrick Enterprises, located in bustling Glasgow, he is one of that city's most eligible bachelors and fully intends to select an appropriate wife from the many young ladies paraded before him. He wants to take that necessary next step along his self-determined path, yet no young lady captures his eye, much less his attention - not in the way Lucilla Cynster does, even though she lives miles away.

    The narrator was not the best. The story seemed a bit like a report and I'm not sure if that was because of the narrator or the author. That said, the story line was still interesting. Something just fell flat for me with this book.

    Story

    First I have to say this book has a lot of sex in it. The sex starts out as just sensuous but not relational. However as this story grows, so does the love between the characters. I thought the narrator was amazing and I hardly ever completely like the narrator. So that is a big bonus for me with this book. The book ends realistically, not everyone is happy. The hero and heroine live happily ever after but the heroine's brother still has many struggles ahead of him. I see a sequel to this book and am anxious to read Liam's tale.

    This story has an endearing plot with lots of heart. The love scenes are not only romantic but sensuous with lots of emotion and heart. The vulnerabilities of the characters are brought out during the love scenes and give the individuals depth and believability. Eloisa James has never disappointed me. The narrators sing song narration is a little grating at first but her voices during dialogue overshadow this aspect and I got used to it after a while.
