    Regency London's elegant ballrooms mask a daring world of erotic adventure. In this second novel in Gaelen Foley's Spicy Trilogy, a mysterious beauty with a devastating secret discovers, in the arms of a bold and fearless cavalry officer, passion that breaks all boundaries. Some say the aristocratic Balfour clan is cursed, a once-great family now in slow decline. Graceful Lily Balfour is her family's last hope, and she has come to London with one goal - to marry a rich man. Her well-laid plans are balked, however, by the irresistible Major Derek Knight, a handsome highborn soldier.

    Would you try another book from Gaelen Foley and/or Rebecca Cook?

    Not sure


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Some thing by Lisa Kleypas.


    What about Rebecca Cook’s performance did you like?

    She does different voices well.


    Any additional comments?

    The dialogue was corny. Not enough passionate scenes or attraction between the main characters. So much narration and not enough action. Wordy, wordy, wordy!

    Dennis Kleinman and Victoria J. Mayers bring to life this unique audiobook version of the historical romance, Caversham's Bride. 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.

    Story

    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.

    Beneath the elegant facade of Victorian high society, the rules of danger and desire are the only rules that apply for the mysterious men of the St James Society. New York Times best seller Liz Carlyle carries listeners deep into this realm of intrigue and passion once more in her breathtaking historical romance sizzler, a scorching story of a very proper lady who flees her home in a far corner of the British Empire, entrusting her safety and her heart to a dangerous outlaw in Victorian London.

    Liz always writes wonderful stories! The narrator was wonderful too. Great plot had me guessing all the way through. Sensual love scenes and romantic, emotional connection. I need the next book in the series to be out yesterday but will probably have to wait a while :(

    Lady Lucy MacMorlan may have forsworn men and marriage, but that doesn't mean she won't agree to profit from writing love letters for her brother's friends - letters that become increasingly racy as her fame grows. That is, until she inadvertently ruins the betrothal of a notorious laird.... Robert, the dashing Marquis of Methven, is onto Lucy's secret. And he certainly doesn't intend to let the lovely Lady Lucy have the last word, especially when her letters suggest she is considerably more experienced than he realized.

    The narrator was OK but o think she made the story less interesting and less compelling. It was hard for me to feel the spirit of the characters. Also, the scene transitions seemed abrupt at times and I couldn't remember how a character got from one place to another.
