    Miss Linnet Berry Thrynne is a Beauty... Naturally, she's betrothed to a Beast. Piers Yelverton, Earl of Marchant, lives in a castle in Wales where, it is rumored, his bad temper flays everyone he crosses. And rumor also has it that a wound has left the earl immune to the charms of any woman. Linnet is not just any woman. She is more than merely lovely: her wit and charm brought a prince to his knees. She estimates the earl will fall madly in love - in just two weeks. She is more than merely lovely: her wit and charm brought a prince to his knees.

    What a terrific book from start to finish. And I was very sad when it ended. The story made me laugh out loud. Loved how the relationship developed. Susan Duerden is one of my favorite narrators. She does all the accents so well and consistently. Its a pleasure to listen to her.

    Trevelyan d'Augustin and Lady Callista Talliafaire were secret sweethearts, until the day her father dismissed him with a whip across the face. Ten years and three jiltings later, shy Callie is resigned to a quiet village life as the late earl's spinster daughter. But now Trev has returned from his estates in France, upending everything, dragging her into adventures, stealing Hubert the prize-winning bull, and flinging Callie's heart into mayhem again.

    If you could sum up Lessons in French in three words, what would they be?

    Charming, funny, marvelous


    Have you listened to any of Nicholas Boulton’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was my first Nicholas Boulton book and I'm hooked. I bought other Laura Kinsale books because of this reading. Nicholas could read the phone book and it would be worth it.


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

    YES!


    Any additional comments?

    I'm a huge fan of Stephanie Laurens' books read by Simon Prebble. I'm so very happy to find another great author with an absolutely fabulous narrator like Nicholas Boulton. Many happy hours of listening in my future. I couldn't be happier.

    Story

    I will listen to any historical romance that Simon Prebble narrates, which is why I picked this audiobook. I loved the story. Mary Jo Putney is a new author to me but now I'm ready to ready anything she's written.

    I hope she has Simon narrate more of her stories.

  • Much Ado about Magic

    Much Ado About Magic is the delightful tale of a painting that takes on a life of its own. Because Lady Lucinda Pembroke’s paintings have a reputation for being prophetic, her picture of a handsome man laughing as a ship sinks causes widespread gossip. Londoners are sure it must be Sir Trevelyan Rochester, gloating as his wealthy cousin drowns. As Lucinda tries to repair his reputation, she creates a mutual desire as colorful as her brushstrokes.

    Story

    I actually selected this book because of the narrator, Simon Prebble. I love Simon's voice. I've been a huge fan of his since he did the Stephanie Laurens Bar Cynster books.

    Much Ado about Magic was a nice change from the normal historical romances. Any story that makes me laugh, like the characters, makes me misty-eyed and hate to see a story end is a book worth recommending.

    This book did all that. Simon's narration put it over the top for me.

    Harriet, Duchess of Berrow, is tired of her title and the responsibilities that come along with it. Enough with proper tea parties and elegant balls; what Harriet really wants is to attend an outrageous soiree where she can unleash her wildest whims and desires. But to attend such an event - especially if the event in question is Lord Justinian Strange's rollicking fete, filled with noble rogues and rotters, risque - ladies and illicit lovers - would be certain scandal. That's why she must disguise herself.

    Susan Duerden should ALWAYS narrate for Eloisa James' books. I enjoyed Duchess by Night. It was highly enjoyable and an excellent use of time and money.
