    Would you try another book from Grace Burrowes and/or Roger Hampton?

    I have enjoyed many books by Grace Burrowes. This is the first audiobook. The kindle version is fine.

    Even at 15, Jeanne, the privileged daughter of a royalist EmigrE, knew what she liked: Englishman Robert Blake, bastard son of a marquess. Yet his questionable birth rendered him forbidden. Forced to part, they were still young enough to believe in tomorrow. But as time passed, that brief ephemeral flirtation at Haddington Hall faded into memory.

    I listened to this book for the first 3 1/2 hrs. I kept thinking that it had to pick up soon, this was Mary Balogh after all. I have read and listened to most of Mary Balogh's books and even when I was not completely happy with any book, none of then was as bad as this one is. If this book had been my introduction to Mary Balogh, I would not have ever tried another. That saddens me,,as I fear that may have happened to someone, and they might have missed the many wonderful books written by Mary balogh that so many of us have read and re-read over and over again. I am totally at a lost as to how this book was ever published.I am just thankful that I did not buy this in paperback which I could not have returned.

    Sir Richard Kenworthy has less than a month to find a bride. He knows he can't be too picky, but when he sees Iris Smythe-Smith hiding behind her cello at her family's infamous musicale, he thinks he might have struck gold. She's the type of girl you don't notice until the second - or third - look, but there's something about her, something simmering under the surface, and he knows she's the one.

Raveneau sardonically agrees to deliver her to her childhood sweetheart in Virginia but doesn't count on his own potent attraction to the enchanting, courageous Devon. Through high adventure, swashbuckling sea battles, and the colorful history of America's revolution, the couple battles the fiery passion that binds them together.

    What would have made Silver Storm better?

    better narrator


    Would you ever listen to anything by Cynthia Wright again?

    I tried to "Smuggler's Moon" as it was narrated by Rosalyn Landor, which was the draw. I enjoyed it quite a bit, Hoping that my enjoyment was not based solely on the narration, I tried this audiobook. Unfortunately,while the narration is OK, the story has caused me to not only remove the remaining books in this series from my wish list but causes me to question bothering with any additional books by this author.


    Did Emily Beresford do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    no

    Antonia was not going to dwindle into an old maid... Miss Antonia Mannering had made plans, and Lord Philip Ruthven played a large part in them. They had been childhood friends, but had not seen each other for years. She knew Philip was popular with the ladies, but he had never married any of them. Wouldn't he now be ready for a wife? If she could prove to him that she could run his home, not disgrace him in Society and be a comfortable wife for him, surely he would be prompted to propose to her.

    What disappointed you about A Comfortable Wife?

    narrator has a sing song voice that I couldn't take any longer by 50 mins into the book.


    Has A Comfortable Wife turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no


    What didn’t you like about Rosalind Ashford’s performance?

    it's more what was there to like.


    Any additional comments?

    I really can't review the story as the narrators performance is so bad it takes away any attention to what she was saying.

    Raised in the Dorset countryside, Lady Charlotte Wylder doesn’t care one bit about well-bred decorum. The dark-haired, blue-eyed beauty would rather ride a horse than attend a stuffy ball. So when Charlotte learns that she is to leave immediately for London to wed the Duke of Marchbourne, a perfect model of aristocratic propriety, she is less than enchanted with her arranged marriage.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    The narrator is excellent but even the narration could not makeup for a slow, boring story. I stopped listening after 3 hrs. I had no interest to finish the book. I doubt I will try another book by this author.

    I read the book and looked forward to hearing it read. I suffered though more than 3 hrs before I couldn"t listen to any more. This narrator is one of the worst I've heard. . His own voice is monotone. His character voices are just strange. .
