    Audrianna Kelmsleigh is unattached, independent-and armed. Her adversary is Lord Sebastian Sommerhays. What they have in common is Audrianna's father, who died in a scandalous conspiracy-a deserved death in Sebastian's eyes. Audrianna vows to clear her father's name, never expecting to fall in love with the man devoted to destroying it.

    I've never read or listened to anything by Madeline Hunter before and I won't do it again. The story is sluggish, the character's cold and hard to like, and the mystery so strung out that it lost any spark of interest.

    Only desperation could bring Duncan Pennethorne, the infamous Earl of Sheringford, back home after the spectacular scandal that had shocked even the jaded ton. Forced to wed in 15 days or be cut off without a penny, Duncan chooses the one woman in London in frantic need of a husband. A lie to an old flame forces Margaret Huxtable to accept the irresistible stranger's offer. But once she discovers who he really is, it's too late - she's already betrothed to the wickedly sensual rakehell.

    The narration of this book is mind-numbingly dull, which only enhances what a wretched, cold character Meg is and makes the ridiculous plot twist seem even more far-fetched. Don't waste your credit. Or 11 hours of your life listening to this drivel.

    The fairy tale courtship did not turn into a happily-ever-after. Not until her husband dropped dead, that is. He had been horrible enough to Christiana during their short marriage, and she was not going to allow the traditional period of mourning to ruin her sisters' debuts as well. So she decides to put him on ice and go on as if nothing's happened.... Until the real earl appears.

    Overall

    I guess this was supposed to funny....I personally didn't find it to be so. The narration is fine, it's the story that bites. Carting a corpse around (and frequently forgetting about him) isn't funny. It's gross. Making out on top of a corpse isn't funny, it's morbid and unbelievably stupid. Don't waste your time with this one.

    Viscount Torrington is the hottest commodity in town as London's matchmaking season begins. But the viscount only has eyes for the penniless Widow Carrington, who has recently been accused of murder.

    Overall

    Laurens' books tend to go on and on and on, and this one is no different. In fact, I think the narration makes it even worse. Jill Tanner isn't a bad narrator, I just don't like her style. The best adjective I can think of for it is "cumbersome." She has a way of speaking that makes me want to sleep, or at least pry the words out of her. At one point I thought I had to be at least halfway through the first part of the download. A quick glance at my iPod showed that I still had five hours to go...FIVE!! And that didn't include any of the second part. Even long, steamy, frequent sex scenes couldn't help this listen. I gave up before finishing the first part and mourned the loss of a perfectly good credit.
