This is a fabulous fairy tale of a book, with delightful characters, suitably steamy encounters, humor, and wit, and Susan Duerden does a wonderful job of reading. I'm in love with her hero's voice!
I'm almost embarrassed to admit I enjoyed these books, but fantasy is fantasy, and if it works, it works. Not for the faint of heart or anyone wanting a sweet, gentle love story. I'd probably listen to certain scenes again, but not the entire book.
LOL! I'm ashamed to admit it. I did like the hero's background, and how really wicked he was, wanting to lick the heroine's tears.
Emily Durante is always good.
Don't trust gorgeous heroes.
It's not a great book, but it's sort of fun kink and better written (and much better narrated) than 50 Shades of Gray. There's all the naughty stuff -- bondage, toys, anal sex, spanking - but it doesn't pretend to be anything else, and the characters have justifiable (almost) motivation.
Jennifer Ikeda does such an outstanding job on this that I can't imagine it without her voice. She does everyone so well, including the male characters, that I'm searching for more of her work.
When Jack makes Nadia hot chocolate.
She's the perfect voice for Nadia, helping you get into the complicated heart and soul and mind of a contract killer, plus her Irish brogue for Jack is downright sexy.
The scene when Jack's leaning over her and she begins to realize she's attracted to him. Plus the scene in the closet.
This is violent, fascinating, angst, funny, and the romance is so subtle it's deliciously addictive. Jennifer Ikeda does a great job of bringing out out a wonderful story, and Richard Ferrone's villain and victim POV are excellent as well.
Charming, sexy, delightful!
Lorraine Heath or Jennifer Ashley's historicals
No, but she's excellent.
I was particularly moved when the heroine finally sent her brother away.
I hope more of Tessa Dare's books are made available, if they're as good as this one.
