    With how they work between Audible and Amazon downloads of audible books has screwed up how they refresh and download to my devices. The last three book downloads have been a pain in my butt to listen to! I have downloaded and listened to 100+ books and all of a sudden they will not download to my 3 devices!

    Story

    I read the other reviews before getting this book. Some of them almost made me not get it! I do not write many reviews but the ones bashing this story and sequence of events are making me feel like I have to write one.
    This is a wonderfully told story, as usual the couple are in love with each other (secretly of course - lack of communication) but they are over the top in lust with each other, mutually attracted to each other in a very heady sexual attraction, which is a very good thing if you have ever had it in your own real life!!!
    I felt the author and the narrator created many beautiful/sexy and sensual love making scenes. You can actually feel the attraction between these two as it is so powerfully written!

    Little Spoiler: This story takes place like in 850AD So yeah, people's views were a little bit different then those of today and what women could endure. Other reviewers thought the speed and position of the loving making unreasonable, but so would being beaten near to death and yet the heroine survived that....I would rather have a handsome man making wild passionate love to me!! LOL
    So if you are not a prude...give this book a try as I am off to find another one by this same author as her story was WONDERFULLY TOLD!!

    Edward Crawdon, Duke of Hartridge, is being forced by his slightly overbearing but loving mother to spend time with her old friends at their estate in Ireland. He does not know it, but a contract exists between the two families stating that Edward must marry their eldest daughter.On the day of his arrival, Edward meets Lady Rebecca, Caroline's younger sister, under very unusual circumstances. Edward cannot stop thinking about Lady Rebecca, but she is completely unsuited to being a duchess.

    The overly scientific, always respectable, and socially awkward Alexander Banks has just been informed his name resides on a betrothal agreement right above the name of the worst chit in all of England. With a loophole that allows him to marry another without consequence before the thirtieth anniversary of his birth, Alex has only four weeks to find another woman and make her his wife. Being the logical scientist he is, Alex decides to take his friend's advice and treat his quest for a bride just like a science experiment...

    Adele Bishop stares in disbelief as the tall, imposing figure of Reno Gold steps off the train. Her mail-order husband is no stranger, but the man who gave her a delicious taste of his wild streak years ago - when she was too young to know how to handle him. Now he’s here, foiling her plan to turn the tables on the men of Whistle Stop, who order their brides as if they were commodities. Adele has no thought of following through on marriage, and every intention of sending the devilishly irritating Reno on his drifting way.

    The Clayborne brothers were a rough gang of street urchins - until they found an abandoned baby girl in a New York City alley, named her Mary Rose, and headed to Blue Belle, Montana, to raise her to be a lady. They became a family - held together by loyalty and love, if not blood - when suddenly a stranger threatened to tear them apart.

    Over half way through this book and it is not going anywhere....This could really be a good story plot but it just isn't going anywhere!!
    I don't feel connected with the characters, I don't feel anything for the narrator or his voices of the characters, especially when he goes from a Scottish brogue to an Irish brogue for Harrison's voice.

    Great book, but the end of Chapter 23 (in the written list on my iPod it says Chapter 24 but the narrator states that it is 23, which is something else I wish someone would fix!) is missing and it must be the part where they finally get things moving or tell each other something about their past!

    What did you love best about Shades of Honor?

    Everything! At first I wondered if I was just having a mellow and melancholy day when I laughed and cried while listening to this story! Then after listening to the other books of this series I realized that it wasn't just the day I was having, but the story, author and wonderful narrator I was listening to that made me love this series!


    What did you like best about this story?

    How their family values are so much in the fore front of every book in this series. Amazing values, sense of caring and loving. Many family values are that now gone from our society in how to raise and give care to the children we love. This series make me almost jealous of the women in these mens lives, to find such a manly man would be amazing.


    Which character – as performed by Julia Motyka – was your favorite?

    She narrated them all so wonderfully! Men's were a little feminine but with the knowledge that they were loving, caring, giving men it was all good!


    Any additional comments?

    Not any hot and steamy sex scenes (which I don't mind, but) just wonderful stories about passion, life, family and love.
    I am on the 5th book in 3 days, I love Wendy and I have never heard of her before!

    What would have made In the Garden of Temptation better?

    I am sorry that I bought this book based on the 3 raving reviews! I liked the premise of the story and where the author could have taken the characters and their lives.I didn't feel there were any development of the characters nor any real grit to why they did the things they did.Maybe I am needy or I like more of a story and character interactions, details, background info....something, anything...There were so many times while listening to this book I actually spoke out loud and said "You've Got to be Kidding Me!!!" whether it was from the lame phrases spoken from Adam to Catherine, Adam to his mother or Adam to his best friend or Catherine's brother (who hadn't seen his sister in 7 years) to Adam about how Catherine has suffered enough when he didn't have a clue about what had been happening to her!! I felt this whole book was a waste of my time I even choose to listen to my car radio on my drive to town instead of the book!!


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    There were no interesting aspects in this story, every part of it was just so glossed over in details, I felt is was rushed! Meaning you are just drug along through the story and at times I had to even replay parts because it just skips through days, months and years events without making it clear.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Helen Lloyd?

    I don't like to speak ill of any narrator but I just wish Helen would have just tried to use a little bit of change in her voice so you could tell whether it was a man or a woman speaking....
    Oh and I had to go and read the Catherine's Bourgeault last name in the Info. because when read, it sounded simply like "BoGo" I would assume there has to be a slight "r" sound.
