No Name

My favorite books are techno-thrillers, followed by paranormals. Photography is my main hobby.

    When handsome British viscount Major Lord Peter Tremayne commandeers her home, rebel Kate Grey throws caution to the wind and responds to his seduction. But a spy in her own household steals the military dispatches Tremayne carries, ensuring his disgrace - and implicating Kate in high treason. Months later, having narrowly escaped court martial and hanging, Tremayne returns to decadent, British-occupied Philadelphia with a new assignment - to capture the woman he believes betrayed him.

    Donna says: "A WINNER!"

    Where does The Turncoat rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is an excellent book. I actually read it first and decided to get this version because I loved it that much; I'm sorry I wasted the credit. Listen to the sample, it doesn't get any better.

    As for the book itself, it is easily the most enjoyable historical-fiction I've ever read about the American Revolution, but not for the obvious reasons. The history is there, but only because of the setting. It's mostly a (somewhat steamy) romantic-thriller. There is intrigue, debauchery, sexual tension, explicit sex (not gratuitous, but it works) and much more. I highly recommend the book (just not the audible version.)


    What other book might you compare The Turncoat to and why?

    No comparison to anything out there in this genre. Who knew the American Revolution could be so sexy.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Madeleine Lambert’s performances?

    Never.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Sex, intrigue and debauchery


    Any additional comments?

    This is a debut novel for the writer and can't wait to read the next installment "Terms of Engagement" next March. Hunt down the book trailer on youtube or the author's website. I wish they'd actually make the movie—it was that good.

    The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night.

    Would you try another book from Erin Morgenstern and/or Jim Dale?

    Jim Dale - Yes


    What was most disappointing about Erin Morgenstern’s story?

    I had trouble figuring out exactly what was the "story" and I really wanted to like it. I'm being kind when I say simply that I didn't like it, nor care for it, not even a little.


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

    Love Jim Dale - I have all of the Harry Potter books on CD.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Night Circus?

    I can't comment as I would never have published the book.


    Any additional comments?

    Can I get my credit back?
