    Annabelle Peyton, determined to save her family from disaster, decides to use her beauty and wit to tempt a suitable nobleman into making an offer of marriage.

Annabelle is determined to resist his unthinkable proposition…but it is impossible in the face of such skillful seduction.

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

    Yes! As an avid romance reader the story has everything, in my opinion, to make a book enjoyable. It keeps ones interest, and if possible I would like to have listened to it all at once, but it's too long.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Secrets of a Summer Night?

    There were many, and I don't want to give anything away, but toward the end when Simon's wife tries to save his life, the author and narrator conveyed the emotions well.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There were several.


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

    Both.


    Any additional comments?

    It's one I will listen to again.

    It’s a classic case of mistaken identity. But this time, it’s no mistake. Plans go hilariously and seductively awry when mild-mannered Audrey Thompson dresses as Ava, her flamboyant but cowardly twin. It is Audrey's task, as Ava, to break up with Ava's fiancé, Zach Banister. However, as Audrey is stuffing her bra and tottering around in her sister's stilettos, she falls for Zach instead. Little does she know Zach has an agenda all his own.

    What did you love best about Borrowed Stilettos?

    I liked the fact that the story was a little different than most switched twin stories. With a different narrator and less explicit sex scenes I would have given it a higher rating..


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I would have made the sex scenes less erotic.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrater detracted greatly from the book. It would have been more enjoyable with someone capable of placing more emphasis where needed and with better acting ability.


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

    Can love discover the real Miss Devine?

    What made the experience of listening to Pleasures of a Notorious Gentleman the most enjoyable?

    It was a wonderful love story of how the reality of war changes people, and to what depths some people will go for love.. A wonderful, emotional love story, read with feeling.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    All players had strong characters, even the butler is memorable. They all had different personalities and strengths, but if I had to choose just one, it would be Mercy. Mercy lived up to her name, giving so much of herself for others. She made mistakes, but for the right reasons.


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

    Her ability to change her voice, and put such feeling into the parts is truly commendable, certainly creating word pictures better than most readers could do for themselves. She is a true artist. I now look for audiobooks read by her.


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

    An emotional, passionate love story in the aftermath of war.

    When a robbery goes bad, undercover cop Mick Dawson can't believe Delilah Piper (aka mystery writer Lela DeBraye) was just in the wrong place at the wrong time...and neither do the perps. The only way to protect her while he investigates what really happened is to stick with her 24/7 -- and try not to fall for the object of his investigation.

    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The actual story was not bad, but was poorly written. Although the narrater had little to work with it could have been read with more emphasis on each character.


    What was most disappointing about Lori Foster’s story?

    The first 3 chapters was what the cop wanted to do to Del, and what Del wanted to do to him. It was so slow, I didn't think I could finish it, but then decided to forward to the next chapter, listen a few minitutes and go to the next chapter...and doing it that way I was able to get the gist of what was happening and get through it.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Not enough voice fluctuation.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Caught in the Act (Men to Rescue)?

    I would rewrite the whole thing. Rather than just going over and over how sexually attracted Del and Mick were to each other, I'd give a little background on the main characters, bring their lives up to date when they finally meet, so the listener would at least know something about the characters and maybe it wouldn't seem so unrealistic. It appeared the author needed to write a certain amount of chapters, so filled in with MUCH repitition, and no substance.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes, if they have a hard time going to sleep.


    Would you recommend Rancher's Twins: Mum Needed to your friends? Why or why not?

    As I said, IF someone needed help getting to sleep, I would recommend it. Even if one falls asleep, they can still follow the story when they wake up. It gets somewhat interesting about the 9-10th chapter. I did not dislike the book, because I had a good nap, but I wouldn't listen to it again.


    Did Saskia Maarleveld do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    She did a good job differentiating between characters (that is what woke me up), but the majority of the reading was monatone. She has a soft pleasant voice.


    Did Rancher's Twins: Mum Needed inspire you to do anything?

    Yes, it inspired sleep.


    Any additional comments?

    The story was rather sweet, but boring.

    An unexpected blizzard, an accident that leads to amnesia, and a baby she doesn't recognize; could the situation get any more complicated? Leanndra DeHart discovers it can when she finds herself in a secluded cabin with a hot cop who invented the word brooding. As she struggles to regain her memory, Leanndra can't ignore the ring on her finger any more than her growing attraction to Shane Knox, the cop with a secret past of his own. The longer Leendra takes refuge in his cabin, the more questions pile up and the more Shane's cop radar tells him something is very wrong.

    No extreme reactions, but it held my interest from beginning to end.

    I enjoyed a book that actually had a story without violence, although violence was alluded to, and without steamy sex scenes....more of a love story.

    When Olivia Bevelstoke is told that her new neighbor may have killed his fiancée, she doesn't believe it for a second, but, still, how can she help spying on him, just to be sure? So she stakes out a spot near her bedroom window, cleverly concealed by curtains, watches, and waits . . . and discovers a most intriguing man, who is definitely up to something. Sir Harry Valentine works for the boring branch of the War Office, translating documents vital to national security.

    If you could sum up What Happens in London in three words, what would they be?

    I enjoyed it.


    Would you recommend What Happens in London to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes, I would recommend it. It was different than most love stories, and although the first part was a little slow, the second part was interesting. It was worth listening to.


    Which character – as performed by Rosalyn Landor – was your favorite?

    Harry


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

    I enjoyed the humor.


    Any additional comments?

    The performance by Rosalyn Landor made this story. Her ability to change her voice between male and female were exceptional, making the story interesting. Without her, I think it would have been hard to follow.

    Would you consider the audio edition of What Price Love? to be better than the print version?

    Yes, it's nice to be able to sit back and picture places and people in your mind, while described by a professional reader.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of What Price Love??

    There were several points of interest that are memorable.


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

    I think by listening, rather than reading it myself, it's easier to picture the surroundings, picture the different characters, etc. more clearly in ones mind. She did a good job changing her voice for the different characters.


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

    Yes, I did listen to it all in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    Any romance lover should enjoy this audio.
