    Would you try another book from Jude Deveraux and/or Carrington MacDuffie?

    No.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Her Scottish accent was horrible. The heroine sounded stupid and annoying.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Temptation?

    All of them.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Would you try another book from Hannah Howell and/or MacNab Ashford?

    Probably not.


    What could Hannah Howell have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    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.

    On a quest to avenge her sister's death, Eleanor Watkins never expected to fall for the man following her through pleasure gardens and into ballrooms. But soon nothing can keep her from the arms of the sinfully attractive scoundrel, not even the dangerous secrets she keeps. Strong, compassionate, and utterly irresistible, James is all she desires. But can she trust him enough to let herself succumb to all the pleasures that midnight allows?

    DARA says: "Great finish to the series."
    "Book 4 Is the Best"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Midnight Pleasures with a Scoundrel to be better than the print version?

    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.


    What did you like best about this story?

    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.


    Have you listened to any of Susan Ericksen and Antony Ferguson ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    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.
