    Blythe Gifford’s spellbinding medieval romances have captured the hearts of fans and critics alike. Set in 14th-century England, In the Master’s Bed features Jane de Weston, a young woman who decides to disguise herself as a man to gain her independence. What she doesn’t count on is falling for Duncan, the strapping Scotsman who takes her on as his apprentice. When he discovers Jane’s deception, Duncan knows he should send her away, but the yearning he feels for her is begging to be unleashed - and Jane is a very willing pupil.

    Justine Hoffman has made a comfortable life for herself on the island of Friday Harbor. She is the proprietor of a successful boutique hotel, and she has the safe, predictable life she has always wanted. Growing up with her flighty, nomadic mother, Marigold, has instilled in her a deep longing for stability. But in spite of everything Justine has achieved, there is still something missing. Love. And after years of waiting and dreaming, she is willing to do whatever it takes to change her destiny.

    I love Lisa Kleypas books. I own about all of them, so this one would be a given. Right? Well, the "Lisa magic" is missing from this book. It has some funny lines and some tenderness, but it seems like she tried too hard to stuff too much in this book with witches, family issues (which I am not sure are resolved), a lot of food descriptions and even an attempt at a Fifty Shades scene. (Which I am not sure how I feel about this in her books).

    However, I have to say this book had a cute storyline, but never felt the connection with the characters, like she has written in past books.

    If you like Lisa's books I would say take the chance you might find something you like in this book.

    If you are new to Lisa's work save your money and purchase one of her earlier historical romances.

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

    The progression of this book was slow in the beginning, but by the second part of the book it picked up some steam and was enjoyable. I liked the book and would listen to this again.

    Liked the characters, even the "bad guy" in the book.

    Looking forward to any future books by this author.


    What three words best describe Carrington MacDuffie’s performance?

    The narrator was good, would listen to another book she narrates.

    Anne Wynter might not be who she says she is.... But she's managing quite well as a governess to three highborn young ladies. Her job can be a challenge: in a single week she finds herself hiding in a closet full of tubas, playing an evil queen in a play that might be a tragedy (or might be a comedy; no one is sure), and tending to the wounds of the oh-so-dashing Earl of Winstead. After years of dodging unwanted advances, he's the first man who has truly tempted her, and it's getting harder and harder to resist.

    Who could possibly throw over a woman as beautiful and vivacious as Roxana? Certainly not Alex Winslow, the Earl of Ayersley, who has spent years trying in vain to forget his unrequited love. When he learns she's been abandoned by her cad of a fiancé, he finds himself offering a shoulder for her to cry on. Comfort soon turns into a passionate kiss—and scandal when they are caught in an embrace.

    Was Ruined by Rumor worth the listening time?

    I didn't feel like I wasted my time with this book, but it wasn't my favorite. The book seems to follow the romance typical recipe in book development. I enjoyed it - would even listen to it again, however it just left me feeling - Ehh.

    They call him Lord Lyon, proud, determined - and cursed. He is in need of a bride, but if he falls in love, he dies. His fervent hope is that by marrying - and having a son - without love, perhaps he can break the curse's chains forever. Enter beautiful Thea Martin - a duke's headstrong, errant daughter and society's most brilliant matchmaker. Years ago, she and Lyon were inseparable, until he disappeared from her life without a word. Now she is charged with finding Lyon's bride - a woman he cannot love for a man Thea could love too well.

    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked that there is a mystery/suspense that carries on to the next book. The friendship that develops between the main characters in this book, as well that all sub characters are equally important. The kids in this book are too cute! (reminded me of my son). The plot of the book is unique and yet very familiar. I would give the story a B+. I am looking forward to the next book in this series.


    Have you listened to any of Rosalyn Landor’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I love Rosalyn Landor's voice in all of the books she has read - she doesn't disappoint.

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

    I like this book, but it was like taking any regular romance novel and editing it so only the sex scences appear and dash in a tragedy and a I love you in the end and poof you have a book.

    The book story was orginal to a point and I liked the charaters - I would listen again if I needed a short story and was needing a heavy romance.

    She was ok - wouldn't mind a another book by this narrator.

    What did you love best about The Proposal?

    Wow ! What a great book. This a very gentle and natual romance. I felt the progression of the romance and bond between the characters throughout the book. The main characters are well written and I enjoyed the strength of both. Even the other minor character are well written. I felt like I was a fly on the wall watching all the wonderful interactions.


    What does Rebecca De Leeuw bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The character voices


    Any additional comments?

    I was apprehensive at first on buying this book. But was very surprised how much I really liked it. It will be on my list to listen to again and again.
