    A lady's reputation is a fragile thing. If anyone ever discovered that Miss Elizabeth Bennet had received a letter from a single gentleman, she could be ruined...or forced to marry a man she detests. In this Pride & Prejudice variation, Elizabeth takes the safer course and refuses to read Mr. Darcy's letter of explanation. Returning home unaware of Wickham's true nature, Elizabeth confesses everything to him, putting both Mr. Darcy and herself in grave danger from Wickham's schemes.

    Incredible book & performance! Ms Hewitt made the well developed characters blossom into real live beings. I was engaged from start to finish, never wanting to turn off the fun. I felt as though I was there with all these fantastic men and women; how can they all be voiced by one person?! The worst part of the book was once it was done and there was no more magic to hear! I will most definitely be looking forward to more books from Ms Reynolds and hearing Ms. Hewitt make the words jump off the page and into reality!

    Having overcome the many seeming obstacles to marrying Miss Elizabeth Bennet, his former employee and the woman of his dreams, Mr. Darcy must now reaffirm his promise to be a man truly worthy of her affections. Confronted, out of the blue, with the intimate knowledge of her husband's rakish past, Elizabeth too is obliged to reconsider long held tenets that otherwise threaten to tear them apart.

    Story

    While listening to Ms Hewitt's outstanding performance in reading "What He Would Not Do," I am not doing mundane everyday activities, rather I am transported to a time long since past. I am wearing flowing gowns and attending balls! Ms Dixon's sweeping landscape is made vividly real by this narrator's rich and authentic vocal talent. Her accents are flawless. Individual characters are well defined in tone & timbre and therefore are easily distinguished and differentiated. Although I look forward to the resolution of story lines and subplots, I find myself sad when the book concludes.

    While certainly this genre of writing may not be for everyone, Ms Dixon creates a world true unto itself. Yes, some of the character's decisions may seem illogical to us in 2014, but 'read' very true to the time period in which the story is set. It does make me realize how fortunate I am to be a female in this century and to be grateful for the liberties I have, yet helps one to understand the norms of that society and appreciate the choices they made even if I do not agree with them by today's standards. It is lovely to journey back to that time and then to come home again when the story is concluded.

    Again, well done ladies!

    Lady Emily Clearbrook secretly loved the Earl of Stonebridge, but one day, he left her without a word. Now, years later, the man mysteriously reappears and battles Emily's four brawny brothers to woo her again. But the bigger battle seems to be with Emily! This sweet historical romance series, about a duke's family, includes delightful, heartwarming love stories that bring the Regency period to life.

    Story

    I thoroughly enjoyed The Rejected Suitor! The story was light and enjoyable with fun & interesting plot twists. I've only recently discovered these regency books and find them delightfully distracting. I appreciated the light hand taken in the romance details. While some books are guilty pleasures that you would not want to be overheard, I could listen to 'Suitor' and not cringe if my children caught some of the narration. And speaking to the narration, Ms Hewitt's performance was spot on. I literally felt like I was meeting different and distinct characters, even forgetting it was only one person voicing them at times! From the dottering old aunt to the overbearing brother to the minor characters, the care the author gave to their creation was realized in the narrator's skillful performance.

    This book was exactly as promised. I wanted a fluffy fiction, not a historical documentary and that is what I got. Ms McCarthy wove a fun fantasy tapestry and Ms Hewitt spun the tale into vibrant life with her lyrical and lovely voice. Thank you ladies!

    When Aurora Hyatt loses her journal in Hyde Park, her ruin is a foregone conclusion. After all, if anyone discovers her writings, they'll find scandalous fantasies involving the newest rake in town alongside entirely-too-candid thoughts about her typical dreary suitors. Aurora will either be forced into a loveless marriage with the first nodcock to make an offer, or she'll be assigned a permanent position on the shelf. Oh, dear good Lord. What catastrophe will God smite down upon her next?

    Twice a Rake was twice the fun! Engaging story, well written and easy to loose yourself in. The vocal talent here is what makes these stories so successful. Pearl Hewitt is one of the best narrators I've ever heard! I wouldn't want to hear anyone else read these books for me! She's captivating!

    In this amorous, provocative, and at times tumultuous "what-if" story, Mr. Darcy is a wealthy young man of sense and education, with considerable worldly experience - not at all uncommon for Regency-era gentlemen of his social standing. He is his own master. He enjoys his situation and has no particular desire to marry at all. Darcy's world is turned inside out when he renews his acquaintance with Miss Elizabeth Bennet - her own circumstances considerably diminished pursuant to the sudden and tragic death of her father.

    I had the privilege to be swept away into PO Dixon's To have His Cake (and Eat It Too) on a recent cross-country driving trip. It was the only thing that could keep me not only awake but enthralled. It was wonderful! The story is sweeping and enchanting and the narration FLAWLESS! Ms Dixon's writing taps into the reader's every emotion. Ms Hewitt's performance is so genuinely British, it adds to the overall experience. I have seen several of these type of romance novels on Audible, but will only buy them if Pearl Hewitt is listed as the narrator! Brava!!
