    Widowed Silence Hollingbrook is impoverished, lovely, and kind - and nine months ago she made a horrible mistake. She went to a river pirate for help in saving her husband and in the process made a bargain that cost her her marriage. That night wounded her so terribly that she hides in the foundling home she helps run with her brother. Except now that same river pirate is back... and he's asking for her help.

    What made the experience of listening to Scandalous Desires the most enjoyable?

    As an avid audio book listener, I really have enjoyed The Maiden Lane Series. I had waited patiently for the latest installment to be released and it was certainly well worth the wait.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Scandalous Desires?

    The revelation of the Ghost of St. Giles identity.


    What about Ashford McNab???s performance did you like?

    Asford McNab is a very talented Narrator, she made this story come to life. Her voice is awesome.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I actually listened to the whole book in 2 days. If I had been reading it would classify as a page turner.


    Any additional comments?

    I love Elizabeth Hoyt's stories, I find her characters interesting and lovable. I am a huge historical romance fan and this book rates in my top 10 list.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Shadows to be better than the print version?

    Yes I don't really have time to read and this way I keep up with all my favorite books.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love all the characters in this book but Trez really touched me. Trez was sold by his parents and lived a life of self destruction trying to run from his bonds until he me Selena. Though there love affair was short lived they loved so much and Trez found peace.


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

    Jim Frangione has done an excellent job reading all the BDB books, but in this one he had trouble with names. He changed how he pronounced quite a few, I don't know if it was on purpose but it made it a little confusing at times.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I cried through the last 15 chapters.


    Any additional comments?

    If you have never read any of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series, I highly recommend them. JR Ward is awesome.
