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

    Iain Sinclair, Marquis of Alynwick, is certain there is a special hell for him. An unrepentant rake, he holds nothing sacred - except for beautiful Elizabeth York. For years, Alynwick has tried to forget the woman he loved so well, and treated so badly. A woman who could hold nothing in her heart for him but hatred. All of society believes Elizabeth, the blind daughter of a duke, to be a proper young lady. But no one knows of her wanton affair with Alynwick.

    If you could sum up Temptation & Twilight in three words, what would they be?

    Very, very disappointing! Unfortunately, I read book 2 first and now book 3 before book 1. I couldn't wait to read this book after the ending to book 2. Maybe it is me but in book 2 Iain was called Allenwyck whereas in this book he was referred to as Alec and in book 2, Black was a Duke also but here he is an Earl while Iain was an Earl and he is now a Marques. Am I misunderstanding something?


    Would you recommend Temptation & Twilight to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would recommend it but only because it finishes the series and you might as well complete the series to be able to see where everything ends. Ending was also a bit too abrupt for all that we were imagining throughout the series.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Ms. Stern did a good job reading and for the voices of the characters however I liked the narrator for book 2 better.


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

    I would only make a movie from the entire series not just this book.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't know what to say but the author became confused somewhere.

    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?

    It's refreshing and to the point without too much to take us away from the plot. I was happy for that because I love the casebook mysteries of Barnaby Adair. Hoping that Stephanie brings out a series of such stories for our listening pleasure.

    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.

She believes her betrothed is a generous and noble man who has been longing for her. But the handsome man waiting for her at the altar is a dark, brooding stranger who rushes her into marriage, then abandons her at his country estate. Only the passion of Michael's kiss gives her hope that theirs can be more than a marriage of convenience.

    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!

    I don't know if it is me or just these last few books, but I was so disappointed in this book. The story was boring, boring and even more boring! Again, I skipped through the chapters to the end because I just couldn't take it anymore. Unless you are absolutely bored and have nothing else to do, don't listen to this book!

With a bounty on her head, Tara Griffin cannot afford to fall for the handsome Roman, a nobleman who has no place for a commoner in his life…

This time he intends to marry a quiet, biddable woman who will not draw attention to herself or cause scandal. Gillian Leigh's honest manner and spontaneous laughter attract him immediately. It matters little that she is accident-prone; he can provide the structure necessary to guide her. But unconventional, his new bride turns the tables on him, wreaking havoc on his orderly life.

    This book was very enjoyable. This is my first read from this author and I look forward to more. I can't wait to read about Charlotte's story. I was passing out laughing with the scene in the bedroom at the ball where everyone kept hiding when there was a knock on the door! Loved it so much. Noble was kinda harsh and weird in the beginning. I warmed towards him the more I listened and his accident prone wife was just lovely. I absolutely recommend this book.
