    For as long as she can remember, Lydia Westland has dreamed of glittering London society. Finding herself at last in England, she is determined to make the most of this opportunity. Clutching her copy of Blunders in Behaviour Corrected she sets forth to find a suitably titled husband. But what she finds instead is Rhys Rhodes, a second son with a past that is anything but glittering. To Rhys, Lydia is everything he has lost - innocence, laughter, joy - and everything he cannot have.

    What made the experience of listening to Love with a Scandalous Lord the most enjoyable?

    The ups, downs, wish it was, wish it wasn't and the....wish I could reach in there and shake them, fun! I cried, laughed, wanted to turn it off, never did turn it off ... just plain good!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Love with a Scandalous Lord?

    Why would I purposely write a spoiler? You need to live it with them.... the very very best moments were the ones I won't tell you. ...


    Which scene was your favorite?

    In the middle of the ballroom.... I won't tell you when. But I felt that moment in my heart!


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

    YES YES YES YES YESSSSSSSSS! Actually..... I did!


    Any additional comments?

    The narrative was incredibly hard to get into... in the beginning I wondered a bit... but quickly enough the narrator was gone and the character's were in my head!

    I loved it. Both the story and the characters were great, hilarious, serious, dramatic and sincere... The often unusual story line was interesting and the listen pleasing to hear. As a regency romance this one is very good and a little different.
    I give a good two thumbs up and recommend this one as definately credit worthy.

    Mr. Jordan Trent, the spare, was raised to be a rake. Not only did his father encourage his roguish life, but insisted that Jordan do nothing except enjoy the life of women, gambling and fine brandy – the life his father had wanted. It is a life Jordan enjoyed until he realized something, or someone, very important was missing.

    Jemma Ramsden is a wild thing in a noblewoman's body-so thinks Gordon Dwyre, Laird Barras, watching her galloping on horseback through her brother's lands. Bold, headstrong, beautiful: the perfect bride for a lusty Scots warrior. He might be able to convince her, too, if she would hear his suit. But Barras doesn't wait to be handed what he wants. When he's forced to rescue her from English ruffians, he makes sure she stays safe-by locking her in his castle. Jemma is hardly an eager captive. She has no horse and no freedom, and she is an Englishwoman in a hostile Scots keep: a stranger without work or friend.

    This story had it's moments both great and just good. Enjoyable... I found myself truly missing the characters from book 1, which I have to admit I felt was better. However I ended it looking forward to book 3. So that said it is obvious that this book is definately credit worthy in my humble opinion, definately credit worthy.
    The storyline unique, the characters well done, and the telling easy and pleasing to hear. Two thumbs up from me.

    Regency romantic mystery at its finest.
    I loved this tale. I found the strength of the heroine respectable, the kind intent of the hero eventually heartwarming, and the twisting turning and weaving of the plot quite compelling. Yes, verrrry good book.
    Well worth a credit!!!

    Renowned as the wildest Viking of his time, Thork was returning home to regain his father’s favor. Mayhap even (shudder) marry. His brazen - and very beautiful - kidnapper has likely done him a favor in preventing such an irksome fate. That doesn’t mean he’ll let her off easy. No one takes anything from a Viking that he’s not willing to give...not even a violet-eyed vixen who sets off the wildest fantasies.

    Story

    This one was tricky! I guess I should have really realized what the title said... irrelevent since I totally enjoyed it all the same.
    You have to go into it knowing you can't take it seriously or you could get tangled a bit. Even so it was a good romance even if slightly twisted. I found the utopic life the women had created to be of a strong intent and worthy of it's creation. The concept of what they wanted from the male species a humorous addition leaving the stories intent slightly twisted to be sure.
    Credit worthy? Yeah... But I think I bought it since it was reasonably priced and I got to save the credit.

    Story

    Loved it! I love the way that some details from book one were carried thru but without making you wonder what they're talking about or getting frustrated by repetition. (I truly dislike it when too big a portion of a book in a series is spent in the telling of the previous books!) I even enjoyed what was left to follow to book three! I can hardly wait until it's available....
    I found this story delightful, slightly dark occasionally, and often funny. It's a regency romance mystery that I for one thoroughly enjoyed! From characters to story line, it was a good book!
    Credit worthy? Heavens yes! But if you have not read the first book in this series yet then I emphatically encourage you to do so before reading (listening to) this one.

    This was a fun, sexy, dramatic, bite your nails story. There was lots of room to veer off onto side stories that would have been good too. But I'm glad to say that this story was in it's entirety a very good book. Definately credit worthy! I had a teenie bit of trouble adjusting to the fictional lands of king and princes but once I gave into it I found that there was such a nice tale to enjoy.

    Sarah Douglas is a successful thirty-eight-year-old romance novelist with big problems. She's come to Scotland on a three-month working vacation hoping to recapture her muse - who's deserted her - and resolve the issue of her strange 'feelings' - the ones which allow her to sense the emotions of everyone she touches. From the moment she arrives, however, her problems only intensify. She's being stalked, but by whom? Is he real or only a figment of her imagination?

    Story

    I was delighted to see the second book in the daughters of the glen series. I have to admit tho' that I had some lingering doubts as to how well a second book could be run off the first one without ruining one to create the other... Well I couldn't have been more wrong. The individual threads were woven into a wonderful story that absolutely shines.
    References to the first book were minimal but easy to identify.. I often think it takes a special author to figure out how to pull it off. weaving in details we need to know without it being a plug for the previous book (s) in the series is a art form all its own. I see it as grabbing threads or strands from above, as if the first story is hanging above you and a tug here and there to weave in those strands seamlessly, blending yet coloring, tugging things together artfully with tiny knots and shades of remembrance. Ok, I know I am getting carriedd away but the blending was so artfully done that I really feel that expressing that to you says something very good about Melissa Mayhues works.

    Credit worthy? YES YES YES!! If you like a hunky highlander with some heartfelt lust, emotions stirred to where they bubble over, a plot with sumptous twists and turns and intrigue. Well..... yes!

    Elizabeth Wiley did a wonderful job with the narration. Her characters come to life, they are individuals, distinguishable, with their personalites clear and unmistakably theirs.

    Would I recommend this to a friend? , duh NO DOUBT!

    I really enjoyed this book. It is outrageously fun, with slightly twisted plots that keep you interested and guessing,there are fantastic characters all well developed and alive, making this a most enjoyable work. and it's just plain wonderful to listen to.

    Anne Flosnik as narrator... I think most people either love her or hate her. I find her work is comfortabe to listen to and I stop hearing someone reading a book and just hear the people of the book.. that is a remarkable sign of a talented narrator. However, one note, I do try not to listen to books with her narrations back to back as the characters do tend to blend together. Other than that I have no complaints what so ever! Her delivery is flawless, the cadence and pre

    Credit worthy, oh yeah! I wouldn't want to miss it! When I have to listen to it straight thru then it gets both thumbs up and a A+ too!!

Now she must marry the new heir, Thayer Saiturn, a battle-hardened knight, known as the Red Devil. With a face scarred in battle and a heart broken in love, Thayer has no interest in marriage.

    Finally a story without the perfectly perfect looking leading man. Or the perfect looking leading man that has scars. This is a realistic character with normal issues wrapped into a good strong, even if somewhat typical, HR. There is something special to be said for it too!!
    Mary Jane Wells did a wonderful job as usual.
    Yes credit worthy although I paid for it and will most likely buy the rest outright as well.
