    At 17, Rose fell wildly in love with Lord Alton Sinclair, known as Lord Sin for his wicked ways. Stung by his indifference, the starry-eyed girl tried to win an illicit kiss, but then panicked and pushed the notorious rakehell into a fountain. Leaving Lord Sin floating among the lily pads to the mocking laughter of his peers, Rose escaped back to the countryside.

    Would you listen to How to Capture a Countess again? Why?

    I don't generally listen to a book again but, this could definately be the first. I love the duchess and have hopes of hearing the story of all of her god children. I have book 2 ordered and can't wait to hear the stories of Rose's sisters. With the number of god children I hope the stories continue beyond Rose and her sisters.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This story was just plain fun. Fountian hopping has become my favorite pasttime. The characters were well developed and the situations were believeable. :)


    Which character – as performed by Alison Larkin – was your favorite?

    The Duchess was perfect. Charlotte was just as fun. I think I might get pugs! I have not heard Alison Larkin this was my first but, I will be getting more. Well done!


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

    I finished this book in two days. I couldn't turn it off.

    Desperate to escape his mother's matchmaking, Vincent Hunt, Viscount Darleigh, flees to a remote country village. But even there, another marital trap is sprung. So when Miss Sophia Fry's intervention on his behalf finds her unceremoniously booted from her guardian's home, Vincent is compelled to act. He may have been blinded in battle, but he can see a solution to both their problems: marriage. At first, quiet, unassuming Sophia rejects Vincent's proposal. But when such a gloriously handsome man persuades her that he needs a wife of his own choosing as much as she needs protection from destitution, she agrees.

    This is a nice addition to the series of the survivors club. I always enjoy stories by Mary Balogh she has wonderful descriptiveness a an eye for detail that can take you into the story. As usual Rosalyn Landor brings the storyline to life.

    Mary and Roslyn will always be a great combination for a good listen.
    Mary writes with wonderful description and can set a scene well while Roslyn can bring it to life

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    the narrator I had visions of captain Kirk from Star Trek I struggled through the voices but the awkward pauses in inappropriate place almost made me turn it off. I love ms. Lauren 's stories but this one is ruined by mr. Ryan . he has a wonderful voice but is over acting both the men and the women's voices. I understand it is difficult for a man to voice a women but he also struggle with the men.


    What didn’t you like about Napoleon Ryan’s performance?

    most of it
