I am quiet and love being comfortable. I love curling up in a corner either reading or listening to a nice romantic book.

    They call him Lord Lyon, proud, determined - and cursed. He is in need of a bride, but if he falls in love, he dies. His fervent hope is that by marrying - and having a son - without love, perhaps he can break the curse's chains forever. Enter beautiful Thea Martin - a duke's headstrong, errant daughter and society's most brilliant matchmaker. Years ago, she and Lyon were inseparable, until he disappeared from her life without a word. Now she is charged with finding Lyon's bride - a woman he cannot love for a man Thea could love too well.

    Story
    What did you love best about Lyon's Bride?

    The story between Neal and Tess, of course. This was a well put together storyline. Once again Roslyn did an exceptional job narrating and Cathy did well on this storyline.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Lyon's Bride?

    For me, when the boys along with the Chattom siblings playing marble! Priceless. Then it was all interrupted by the Dowager Chattom.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene in Lyon's room with the ladies and later with him and Tess.


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

    Yes and I would have had there not been minor interruptions here and there. I finished it however in a day and some hours.


    Any additional comments?

    Is there a book 2? I am patiently waiting for it to continue.

    I didn't expect this to be the second book because book one ended with another lady being taken or lead to the Grant's keep but I absolutely loved Brenna's story. I was listening to the book and immediately thought about Celiac disease. Those kids made me want to laugh and cry at the same time! Loved, loved this book in the series and can't wait for Book 3.

    Lady Madeline's heart is not for sale - especially not to a notorious outlaw like Rhys FitzHenry. Yet Madeline's hand has been sold, to none other than this battle-weary warrior with a price on his head. A more dutiful maiden might cede to the Laird's command and meekly accept her fate, but Madeline has never been obedient. She decides to run away, though she never dreams that Rhys will pursue her.

Aimee refuses to accept Reece's decree for her to find a nobleman fitting her rank and is willing to do anything - including tricking her best friends, stowing away on Reece's ship, and facing his rage - to make him her very own.

    I began listening to this book before I realized that there was a book 1, however, I was so enthralled that I could not stop listening. (Note to anyone: it is not advised to listen into the wee hours of the morning when you have to work.) Anyhow Corrie did a good job on the narration and I loved how the story line flowed. Can't wait for book 3 to come so I can see how it all ends and how our villain gets caught! This series is well worth the credits!

    Penelope Adair, wife and partner of sleuth Barnaby Adair, is so hugely pregnant she can barely waddle, much less assist, when Barnaby is summoned by Inspector Stokes of Scotland Yard to help investigate the violent murder of a gentleman at a house party. Penelope insists that she and Griselda, Stokes's wife, receive reports to stay duly informed of their husbands' discoveries. But what Barnaby and Stokes uncover leads only to more questions. The victim had been thrown out of the house party days before, so why had he returned? And how did he come to have the famous Finsbury diamonds in his pocket?

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

    I would say mid top, because I am new to this author, however, the series seems to be a good one so I would reserve my opinion until all books have been read/listened to.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The duke of course, being pompous and so damn sure of himself! I understand his attitude and where he was coming from but he could have done a better job getting his point across.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Oh my goodness, sack him! I am hesitant about listening to the other books in the series simply because David Stifel (first time listening), HORRIBLE! I pray he doesn't narrate another historical romance that I have to listen to. His female voice needs a lot of work.


    Who was the most memorable character of The Wild One and why?

    Lord Gareth of course, he came a long way and evolved into a responsible husband and father!

    For too long Miss Emily Parr has been subject to the whims of her indebted uncle and the lecherous advances of his repulsive business partner. Her plan to be done with dominating men forever is simple: find herself a kind husband who will leave her to her books.It seems an easy enough plan, until she is unexpectedly abducted by an incorrigible duke who hides a wounded spirit behind flashing green eyes.

    Story

    What more can we say? A well written book, we began with a kidnapping, then hopefully a settlement of a debt, then the bedding and uncontrollable passion, the unvailing of a brother, another kidnapping and eventually a marriage!!! All in a day's work! All because some lecherous old man who had a desire for a young girl's mother (who thankfully was wise enough to despise him) and therefore never paying him any attention decided to take his anger and lust out on her. What a miserable piece of work!! Her uncle should be tied, flogged and quartered for agreeing to all this just because it cleared his debt. I can't wait for the other books in this series to see what happens to the other 5 League of Rogues this is including Jonathan whom by all means should have his own love story hopefully after bedding a few mistresses and getting himself in some trouble. Hopefully it is Lord Ashby next!!!

    I just wished this book was longer! I loved it from the beginning and wished it had gone on and on for a little more. I loved Lady Anne from the beginning and just knew she would have been perfect for Garrett! If only we could have heard more about him going on to medical school and how everything folded out. I am still quite happy with the ending results however and look forward to reading Charlotte's story next.

    Ms London is one of my preferred authors and she did not disappoint me in this one. It made my day during a gloomy rainstorm and kept me from going insane. I loved the characters especially the gardener and his roses that no one can touch. I also loved when the family came to visit from America, hilarious!!! Anne another of my preferred narrator did a great job as always. Well worth the credit!

    I should have listened to the reviews. Good lord, we heard more about the Royals of England/Wales whichever more than I wanted to know. We could have done without all that and get to Ann and James' story and romance with a little intrigue thrown in. Priscilla has a good reading voice but her male and female interpretations were killing me! Could have gotten a better book with this credit!

    I am wondering if there is another book in the making because we were left with no closure, the Wolf's story has not come out and we need to see if and or when he gets his memory back. We need to know who the man in black is and the finality of the whole story line. Does the McCurran clan get to claim their rights to the castle etc. Can't wait!
