I read the book on my Kindle and listened to the audible version in the car. I always prefer reading to listening as it goes faster, but this was a good listen as well.
Although I liked all 4 of the Scoundrels of St. James books, this one had a twist that I never saw coming. Good story. Well told. The narrator is good, if a bit slow-paced and maudlin at times.
I've listened to all of the Scoundrels of St. James books. All four were good performances, though I admit I liked Antony Ferguson's voice better. Susan Ericksen did a good job of differentiating character voices. I really appreciate that.
I just couldn't get past the heroine falling in love in a week that we didn't even see. She was abducted by her arch enemy. A week passes and bam she's in love. No reason, just, hey it's OK if he ravishes me cause I love him. I was done.
Her Scottish accent was horrible. The heroine sounded stupid and annoying.
All of them.
The plot had potential, but it never got there. Neither the hero nor the heroine was likable. In the end, there was no reason for her to accept him or believe that he had changed. And there was no reason for him to want her to. Do yourself a big favor and skip this one.
