    This was my first Julia Quinn book and I did enjoy it though she used terms that did not fit the time properly. If you are willing to overlook that then the book was very entertaining. I would have given the book a 4.5 if it was available but well including it here is just as well. The only thing I did not like about this book was the ten things JQ kept listing in the book. A bit silly especially since they were not all meaningful points. Nevertheless, If you like historical romance then this book is a good one to listen to.

    Blessed - or perhaps cursed - with a fiery temper, a strong will, and a blatant disregard for his brother's wishes, Lord Andrew de Montforte's only desire is to be left alone. But after being caught in a compromising position with tempting Lady Celsiana Blake, the brilliant and brooding scientist/inventor is forced into marriage in this fast-paced, jocular tale in which a supporting cast of beloved pets, the warm and eccentric de Montforte brothers, and the Machiavellian influence of the mighty duke of Blackheath once again play a role...

    I did enjoy this book and am glad that there are more and more books written about people that are not "perfect" by society standards. I love how the heroine defends and provides strong support for the hero but I guess it wouldn't be too much of a hardship when he is such a heart throb :). At the same time I found the story entertaining I also found it a bit silly. The premise of having an older brother who controlled their every move and ALWAYS having all the pieces to his plans fall right into place was just over stretching it a bit for me. There was more silliness but if I give examples, I would be giving the story away so I will leave it up to anyone still interested in reading the story to discover them for themselves. If you absolutely are looking for something good to read, then you won't go wrong with Laura Kinsale books. A much better way to spend your time my friend.

    Minerva Highwood, one of Spindle Cove's confirmed spinsters, needs to be in Scotland. Colin Sandhurst, Lord Payne, a rake of the first order, needs to be...anywhere but Spindle Cove. These unlikely partners have one week: to fake an elopement to convince family and friends they're in love to outrun armed robbers to survive their worst nightmares to travel four hundred miles without killing each other. All while sharing a very small carriage by day and an even smaller bed by night.

    Story

    I have now read all books in the series except one and as much as I've liked all, this book was just something else. I love romance even when a bit cheesy and in so many HR books the love develops quickly but I guess that was what times demanded. This book was such a breath of fresh air that it took me completely by surprise. One of the few books I have EVER read where the hero is not at all interested in the heroine and the events in their journey and her character is what binds him to her and gives way for TRUE romance, passion and love and not those purely based on looks. Tessa Dare is also a very clever writer so her stories have many moments of true brilliance and even deep resonating laughter. This book was a truly wonderful find.

    The Manor, the very place where their passionate love affair began, fills with guests on what should be the happiest day of Ava and Jesse's lives. She has accepted that she'll never tame the fierceness in Jesse - and she doesn't want to. Their love is profound, their connection powerful, but just when she thinks that she's finally gotten beneath his guarded exterior, more questions arise, leading Ava to believe that Jesse Ward may not be the man she thinks he is.

    Story

    To be honest I did not enjoy the first book as much as the other two in the series because it reminded me too much of Fifty Shades in that both have a broken up male characters with money, looks and need to dominate the heroine. However, as the story continued in the second book, the difference became more and more clear. I liked the handsome hero who had no boundaries for himself and yet expected the heroine to follow all his rules. He continued to say "language" to her for the slightest curse word and yet he passed them along freely and as frequently as he wanted. If I were in a relationship with a man like this I am certain it would not last long but in this book his character is so endearing that you forgive him all. The heroine is frustrating in the sense that she gave in to him all the time, but then again, if she didn't the relationship could not have continued with his demanding forcefulness. I guess life is full of give and take but here is mostly give on her part.

    The only other comment I can make is that I wish there was a bit more of the story and less sex. WOW. I can't believe I just said that. I LOVE sex in romance novels but it seemed to somehow displace the story in this book at times which should have been the main focus.

    I very much enjoyed the narration. She did a fabulous job with all male and female characters and the right infliction where needed. Great job Edita Brychta.

    Overall a very enjoyable book that makes you want MORE for yourself as well.....

    Jesse Ward drowned her with his intensity and blindsided her with his passion, but he kept her away from his dark secrets and broken soul. Leaving him was the only way Ava O'Shea could survive. She should have known that Jesse Ward is impossible to escape - and now he's back in her life, determined to remind her of the sensual pleasures they had shared. Ava is equally determined to get at the truth beneath this man's steely exterior. That means letting herself get close to the Lord of the Manor once more.

    Young interior designer Ava O'Shea has no idea what awaits her at the Manor. A run-of-the-mill consultation with a stodgy country gent seems likely, but what Ava finds instead is Jesse Ward - a devastatingly handsome, utterly confident, pleasure-seeking playboy who knows no boundaries. Ava doesn't want to be attracted to this man, and yet she can't control the overwhelming desire that he stirs in her. She knows that her heart will never survive him and her instinct is telling her to run, but Jesse is not willing to let her go. He wants her and is determined to have her.

    Declan, the Duke of Banbury, has no interest in ushering Rosalie Hughes, his stepsister, into society. Dumped on him with nowhere else to go, he's determined to rid himself of the headstrong debutante by bestowing on her an obscenely large dowry, making her the most sought after heiress of the Season. But Rosalie isn't about to go along with Declan's plans. Surrounded by fortune hunters, how is she supposed to find a man who truly wants her?

    Story

    The heroine, Rosalie, gets dropped off at her stepbrother's, Declan the Duke of Banbury's, house when no one collects her from her boarding school even two years after her graduation. Rosalie has always loved her step-brother and now sees what power and a title has done to change him to a cold and unkind man. Declan on the other hand is not at all happy with having the daughter of his hated step-mother under his roof but sees no other way out of this situation but to marry her off as quickly as possible. Trying to get ride of his Rosalie as quickly as possible, the Duke settles a very large dowry on her. In order to keep propriety, Declan asks his aunt and cousin to move in with them. This ignites a great friendship between the two ladies that later aids her in exploring fun in a manner she would have never dared to undertake had it not been for Declan's cousin and that is where the love story begins...

    This was a wonderful lovely story but the suspense just added so much more to this historical romance. Truly enjoyable read if you can get beyond the mind ramblings of the main characters in the book, especially at the beginning. That always exhausts me about any book and this one had it's fair share. However, that being said I still very much enjoyed the story and thanks to S Jordan, I was able to really feel Sophie's pain and anguish as well as her joy. This book develops Declan's character as well but Rosalie's was much more in depth. Can't wait for the next book in the series on Audible.

    The reign of King John means dark days for all of England. Not one man, woman, or child lived without fear. Magnifying this fear is the man they call The Lord of the Shadows - a terrifying figure who sits at the right hand of the King, manipulating the royal moves like a puppet master. The Lord of the Shadows has been known to tear men apart with his bare hands and can, with a snap of his fingers, alter the future of anyone he chooses.

    This story held romance, passion, mystery, excitement and most of all my attention. I was glued to my phone looking to steal every moment out of my day to run and listen to the book. The narrator was FABULOUS and his deep voice is mesmerizing. He has distinct voices for all the different characters and puts the right inflictions at the right time. This is my second book by this author and based on this book and my last one, I will certainly continue to read her books. Captivating storyline and very well developed characters. Purchase with confidence.

    This book was supposed to be written as a four stars but the storyline was terrible. Don't get me wrong. It started good and then became soooooo predictable sooooo quickly. The only excitement I found in the book was her friend's fight with her husband and the scandal due to her leaving him.

    Not very well developed characters, and the love seemed to be based on his 7 dry years than any true passion for a woman. He never even had a chance to look at anyone else before he settled on the heroine. Okay for those of you who say it might have been love at first sight, well, NO it was not and you'll know what I mean if you read this book. My rec though is don't waist your time. Truly....

    RITA finalist and Christy Award winner Julie Klassen draws high marks from fans for her meticulous attention to detail in her inspirational historical romances. With The Tutor’s Daughter, Klassen sweeps listeners away to the blustery Cornwall coast, where Emma Smallwood and her widowed father take up residence with a baronet and his four sons. As Emma begins teaching the two youngest boys, she becomes plagued by mysterious events.

    Story

    Emma Smallwood helps her father run his school for boys called The Smallwood Academy. Emma lost her mother two years prior to the start of this story and as a result finds her father unmotivated and melancholy. Since they have no more students, Emma, worried not only about their financial situation but also her father's depressed state of mind, comes up with the idea of sending a letter to Mr. Weston who had his oldest two sons attend their academy in the past. The letter invited him to consider their academy for his younger twin boys as well. Mr Weston responds by inviting Emma and her father to go to their home Cornwall to privately tutor the two youngest sons. Emma is surprised to find her father not only receptive to the idea but also looking forward to taking up that offer. Emma herself is not too excited about meeting the older son Henry again since he played a lot of pranks on her when he lived with them. Once they arrive at the manor, they find their welcome less than warm and completely unexpected by all except Lord Weston who had forgotten about their arrival and had not informed anyone else of it either. The strange screams in the night and the sense of having someone in her room in the middle of the night in addition to the residents of the manor's strange behavior and start of unpleasant pranks again has Emma puzzled. Everyone keeps telling her that there is a resident ghost in the manor but she realizes that nothing in that house is as it seems. Most seem to be hiding something.

    I truly enjoyed reading this book. I personally am not a religious person and was surprised by the turn of the story into one that was much more strongly religious. I respect those that do believe in God and am sure that most if not all of you believers will enjoy that part and find it most gratifying.

    It was extremely difficult for me to guess who was behind all the pranks but the love story which blossomed was easy to see from the start. I loved Henry's character and his solid personality and the strength and kindness of Emma. All characters were very well developed and the story had well developed facets. A very well done book.

    Story

    Love the tenderness and the understanding the heroine shows to the hero and his daughter. Her character actually seems to mature quickly through the story and her kind nature draws readers in. After reading the first book in the series I thought I would stay away from this series but then I saw the reviews and thought to give this book a shot. Again as with MW’s writing, she tends to repeat the same thoughts a few times, yes completely irritating. For instance I believe she repeated the fact that the hero wore black seven years after his wife died about three times within the first 1/3 of the book. You just want to yell out and say, I GET IT. He needs new cloths. Move on. But then the story gets much better and you tended not to mind as much her mind babbling. The narrator’s performance is not great since all men sound the same and all women have the exact same voice but she did better with this book than with the first book in the series.
