    Grace Brisbane will do anything to save her family from poverty, even marry for money. But to catch the eye of a worldly noble, inexperienced Grace will need to learn the secrets of seduction. And who better to teach her than a man whose life is devoted to pleasure? Alex Weston is the top attraction at Lavender Hills, the all-male brothel that caters to the desires of London’s most fashionable women. His beauty and sexual prowess are legendary, yet his seemingly charmed life masks an ugly truth. Alex is a prisoner in a gilded cage, blackmailed into service. He wants only freedom - until the night Grace Brisbane walks through his door.

    Would you consider the audio edition of To Seduce an Earl to be better than the print version?

    I did not read the print version of this book. I did, however, thoroughly enjoyed the audio version.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Both of the main characters stood out each in their own way. Their interactions with each other were great...funny, caring, romantic. Each character was strong, but , then again, each needed someone to count on and someone to care for them. they found that in each other.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Fiona Underwood?

    It would have to depend on how bad I wanted to listen to the book. If there was one draw back in the listening of this book it was the narration. Underwood did not do a good job in distinguishing betwwen the male and female voices. In many dialogues I had a hard time telling just who was doing the talking because they sounded just like each other...not good when one was female and one was male.


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

    Yes...most definitely. I had a hard time putting my Kindle down and doing other things...


    Any additional comments?

    Brighton id a great job in writing this novel. I look forward to reading more of her books and just hope that Audible will put more of them out there for all to enjoy.

    Colin Fitch cannot deny he's drawn to Beatrice - but lust is all he could possibly feel for the sharp-tongued minx. Still, if there's a chance she can help him stop the madman he pursues, he must withstand her obvious disapproval. Yet withstanding the longing he feels for her is growing more troublesome by the second. And Colin has never been terribly good at staying out of trouble.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Most definitely. I found this book to be intense, funny, sad, thought provoking...just an all around good start to another Brighton series.


    What other book might you compare Wild Desire to and why?

    You know, I really cannot think of another similar book. This book had lots of different aspects that led to it being a very good listen. One could feel the pain that Leo had endured for years. You could feel the total isolation and intense emotions he felt. Ella brought out the best in Leo and made/helped him realize that loving someone does not necessarily lead to losing them.


    What about Ashford MacNab’s performance did you like?

    I have always liked Ashford MacNab's performances. She adds just the right amount of emotions for each character. While listening to her I can totally picture the character and circumstances surrounding the events taking place. Great job!


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

    Life can bring people together in strange ways


    Any additional comments?

    Keep them coming Lori Brighton...Your books keep getting better and better!

    Toni Langston has been in love with Simon, her best friend, for years. The night Simon breaks up with his longtime girlfriend, he and Toni make love. Toni is devastated and humiliated when, in the heat of the moment, he calls her by his girlfriend’s name. The next morning, Simon remembers nothing of the previous night and Toni is only too relieved not to remind him. Two months later, she discovers she’s pregnant. She wants Simon to love her, apart from any obligation he might feel because of the baby. So she embarks on a quest to seduce her best friend, to make him see her as more than a little sister, to make him love her as much as she loves him.

    Story
    Would you listen to Seducing Simon again? Why?

    Yes, if someone else was doing the narration. The story was just a straight forward romance. No mysteries to solve, no evil characters hanging around--just a "let's listen to this and enjoy" kind of story. Sometimes it is just nice to listen to an "easy" listen.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The relationship between all the characters--not just Simon and Toni. These four individuals has made a true family for themselves and it was fun to listen to the interplay between them all.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Get a different narrator. When I listen to my audiobooks, I like to be able to distinguish between the different people in the story. This narrator used almost the same voices for all the characters...male, female, young or old. AND when the story calls for someone to yell or get angry or upset, it would be nice for the narrator to at least change the tone of the narration....It was all the same drab thing...Happy, angry, crying, scared...never a change in the tone . Unbelievably bad!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Some of the scenes were funny. Some of the reactions to how Toni would act or look...that was pretty funny

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have already recommended this book. The storyline and characters were absolutely wonderful. A great overall book!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Abigail and Brooks were each strong characters. Abigail's direct, to the point personality caused for some intense as well as gumorous dialogue. Brooks was the perfect character for Abigail. He was not put off by her different personality. In fact, he thrived on it. Just two wonderfully deverloped characters


    What does Julia Whelan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The narration causes the story to come to life. It provides a definite mental image of each person. Wonderful job


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

    Shile the whole story was intense and fascinating, the ending was just over the top. It made me believe in happily ever after.
