    In a moment of recklessness, Gervase Tregarth, sixth Earl of Crowhurst, swears he’ll marry the next eligible lady to cross his path. Cloistered at his ancestral castle in Cornwall, with nary a suitable woman for miles, he never expects he’ll have to fulfill his pledge, at least not until the London season begins. But then he meets his neighbor, the very appealing Madeline Gascoigne.

    Years of secret service to the Crown have taught Gervase the value of always having a loophole - there will be no wedding if he and Madeline are not compatible in every way.

    Toni says: "Great addition to the Bastion Club series"
    "Cloying NarrationI"

    What did you like best about Beyond Seduction? What did you like least?

    It's difficult to get past the narrator's amazingly bad female voices. I enjoyed reading the book, but listening to it has proved to be impossible.


    If you???ve listened to books by Stephanie Laurens before, how does this one compare?

    This compares poorly to every other narration I've heard. All of Crossley's females sound like Monty Pythonish interpretations of women, and he has an irritating habit of raising his voice near the end of a sentence. His characters come across as priggish.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Steven Crossley?

    Anyone who can read female voice without making them sound whiny would be a big improvement.


    Was Beyond Seduction worth the listening time?

    I was not able to get through all of Part 1. It was too painful.
