    Maureen Paschal thought she might rest and work on her book after discovering the gospel written by Mary Magdalene that revealed Jesus and Mary Magdalene were married. The truth of their story rocked the world and made Maureen a target of those who did not like her discovery and a heroine to those who did.

    Would you try another book from Kathleen McGowan and/or Linda Stephens?

    Not after this one.


    Has The Book of Love turned you off from other books in this genre?

    The genre, no. Books by McGowan, and books read by Stephens, yes.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Read the book before beginning narration. Many sentences are read in a way where it seems that the reader is not expecting a sub clause, but WHOA, there it is! Her stress and intonation are often irritatingly off. Further, when narrating a particularly significant and emotional segment, Stephens' voice often rises into some sort of plaintive whine which further emphasizes the overdone-ness of the style.


    Did The Book of Love inspire you to do anything?

    Yes, it inspired me to be more careful how I spend my credits.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is the tedious and disappointing bastard child of Kate Mosse's _Sepulchre_ and Dan Brown's _Da Vinci Code_. Enough with the Cathars and Waldensians already. I wish I could have my credit back.

    Nothing incites Marcus more than the primal hunger roused by his former fiancée, Elizabeth. It’s been years since she jilted him for another man, but that only means there’s a lot to catch up on, a lot to make up for, and that he’s going to enjoy every sweet moment.… The same drive and passion that sent her into another man’s arms is what brings Elizabeth back to Marcus. Her attraction to him is the one thing she fears, but she’s run out of options. Resisting is impossible. But does she have the courage to surrender everything?

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

    Not really time well spent. I thought it would be a modern-ish Regency novel. It is not. It is actually porn. My own fault - i bought it because of the narrator, not realizing she also does this kind of thing.


    What could Sylvia Day have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    It's probably fine for what it is. Just not what I'm interested in.


    What about Justine Eyre’s performance did you like?

    She is as usually very good. I bought the book because she's the narrator, not realizing that this is, well, special-genre fiction.


    Could you see Ask for It being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I would not want to see this as a movie but I'm sure there is a market for it.


    Any additional comments?

    If you like dominance erotica/pornography you may like this book. If you are looking for something a bit more Georgette Heyer stay away!
