    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    This book was good, but not great. I did find that I like new-to-me narrator Oliver Wyman, and I was already a fan of MacLeod Andrews' work from the Boonsborough trilogy by Nora Roberts. I would highly recommend "The Next Always" by Nora Roberts if you want to hear more of MacLeod Andrews narration. That was an awesome story.

    Winter Makepeace lives a double life. By day he's the stoic headmaster of a home for foundling children. But the night brings out a darker side of Winter. As the moon rises, so does the Ghost of St. Giles-protector, judge, fugitive. When the Ghost, beaten and wounded, is rescued by a beautiful aristocrat, Winter has no idea that his two worlds are about to collide. Lady Isabel Beckinhall enjoys nothing more than a challenge. Yet when she's asked to tutor the Home's dour manager in the ways of society, Isabel can't help wondering why his eyes seem so familiar - and his lips so tempting.

    The wedding of Alix Madsen and Jared Montgomery is a glorious affair at an elegant little chapel in the woods, followed by dinner and dancing, all while moonlight blankets the festivities in a romantic glow. While most guests are fixed on the happy couple, Jared’s cousin Graydon can’t look away from a bridesmaid, Toby Wyndam. It’s not just her quiet beauty that enthralls him or the way she makes him laugh. Toby possesses the truly remarkable ability of being able to distinguish Graydon from his identical twin brother, Rory.

    I like Jude Devereaux stories, but almost stopped listening in chaper 1 because the narrator had such a terrible voice for the male characters. I decided to listen anyway, and it improved slightly, and the story was a good one, but in general this was a let down..

    As the daughter of a famed author, Isolde Ophelia Goodnight grew up on tales of brave knights and fair maidens. She never doubted romance would be in her future, too. The storybooks offered endless possibilities. And as she grew older, Izzy crossed them off. One by one by one....Now Izzy's given up yearning for romance. She'll settle for a roof over her head. What fairy tales are left over for an impoverished 26-year-old woman who's never even been kissed?

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I liked Tessa Dare's previous books but this was very disappointing. The story was silly, and the characters totally unbelievable. I would hesitate to purchase another in her series. Not worth the time or money.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Carmen Rose?

    Didn't care for Carmen Rose either. This is the first time I listened to her work, and again, it left me disappointed.

    This story could have been excellent, but the narration was not good. I had some trouble telling if the speaker was a male or female. I had to wait to get the context to figure out who was talking. Too bad, because the story was good and I would have enjoyed it a lot more with a different reader.

    For as long as she can remember, Lydia Westland has dreamed of glittering London society. Finding herself at last in England, she is determined to make the most of this opportunity. Clutching her copy of Blunders in Behaviour Corrected she sets forth to find a suitably titled husband. But what she finds instead is Rhys Rhodes, a second son with a past that is anything but glittering. To Rhys, Lydia is everything he has lost - innocence, laughter, joy - and everything he cannot have.

    What was most disappointing about Lorraine Heath’s story?

    I am a big fan of Lorraine Heath, and have listened to many of her books, but honestly the narration was SO BAD that I didn't get past chapter 2. What a letdown. I may buy the paper copy and read the story, but I was disappointed in the audio version of her book.

    Governess Abigail Chantry will do anything to save her sister and two dearest friends from destitution, even if it means breaking into an empty mansion in the hope of finding something to sell. Instead of treasures, though, she finds the owner, Lady Beatrice Davenham, bedridden and neglected. Appalled, Abby rousts Lady Beatrice's predatory servants and-with Lady Beatrice's eager cooperation-the four young ladies become her "nieces," neatly eliminating the threat of disaster for all concerned!

    The story is a little far-fetched, and the hero was a little slow figuring out how he felt, but it's worth the listen. I've read some of Anne Gracie's other novels, and this doesn't measure up to those. The narration was excellent. I am going to go find another Alison Larkin narrated book!

    It's 1825 in London, and the two curvaceous and blonde 23-year-old Cynster twins, Amanda and Ameliaare, are desperate to get married. All they need are two fine, strapping gentlemen - preferably with large purses.

    So what do these two lusty young ladies do?They make a visit to the local gaming halls, of course!

But can she trust him enough to let herself succumb to all the pleasures that midnight allows?

    What made the experience of listening to Midnight Pleasures with a Scoundrel the most enjoyable?

    I thought this series was very interestingly based on the cast of Oliver! How clever to give it a subtle sense of that story.


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

    Susan Erickson did a good job on the narration.


    Any additional comments?

    I can't wait to get the next Lorraine Heath audio book. What a great way to take a walk or work in the yard, and still get to hear a great story!

    In the resplendence of William the Conqueror's London court, the lovely Saxon captive, Nicholaa was forced to choose a husband from the assembled Norman nobles. She chose Royce, a baron warrior whose fierce demeanor could not conceal his chivalrous and tender heart. Resourceful, rebellious and utterly naive, Nicholaa vowed to bend Royce to her will, despite the whirlwind of feelings he aroused in her.

    Any additional comments?

    Anne Flosnik did a great job on the narration, and as soon as I finish up the last few chapters, I'm going to get another Julie Garwood book to enjoy. It's been years since I first read this, but enjoyed it today as much as I did then - maybe even more with Anne Flosnik's narration.!
