    Bringing back the lovers from Slightly Shady, Amanda Quick plunges us into a whirlwind intrigue involving an ancient cameo bracelet, known as the Blue Medusa, said to possess terrifying powers. Lavinia Lake and Tobias March join forces again, romantically and intellectually, to solve the murder of the beautiful wife of an old family friend.

    Story

    I have read several of Amanda Quick's books or should I say almost of all them. I absolutely love her style of writing. However, I find the narrator was very hard to swallow. Ms. Bailey's performance leaves a little bit to be desired. As some narrators actually acted their parts, I felt she just read the lines. Not much inflection in her voice. I am on the second book narrated by her and still cannot get use to it. Usually, I can't wait to finish a book but with this book and the next one, I am not as eager. The story was great and one didn't find out all the intricacies of the plot until the end which was surprising.

And in Sir Sebastian Hadley-Attwater, renowned explorer and rogue, Veronica is sure she has found him. Sebastian will come into his inheritance in a matter of weeks - if his family deems him responsible enough. There’s no better way to prove his maturity than with a home and a wife. Veronica will share his bed, but she steadfastly refuses to marry....

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of His Mistress by Christmas to be better than the print version?

    I have only heard the audio version


    What was one of the most memorable moments of His Mistress by Christmas?

    The end - what the legacy truly was.


    What does Susan Duerden bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    She is fantastic. Brings such life to this story. Funny as only Victoria Alexander can do.


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

    You Went Through All This for That?


    Any additional comments?

    I love Victoria Alexander's books and this one does not fail. Funny, witty and just plain good entertainment. I wish all her books were audiobooks. I have all her books but audiobooks just gives it another dimension.

    They call him the Devil.... He is the most notorious laird of Scotland: fierce, cold, deadly...and maybe even worse. Yet Evelinde has just agreed to wed him. Anything, she thinks, is better than her cruel stepmother. Though Evelinde should be wary of the rumors, she can't help but be drawn to this warrior...for the Devil of the Highlands inspires a heat within her that is unlike anything she has ever known.

    Story
    If you could sum up Devil of the Highlands in three words, what would they be?

    Very good mystery


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Evelinde as she was funny, virtuous, loving


    What three words best describe Marianna Palka???s voice?

    Ms. Palka's voice was not the best. She is at times monotoned and could use some improvement. Accents were alright but again could be improved.


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

    Near the end when all was revealed and why.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved the story. Was a good love story along with a great mystery. Who would ever believe the person who was the real culprit. I have read other Lynsay Sands books and believe she is truly a great writer.
