    Story

    This story was good. I liked the H and H quite a bit. Claire was doing her very best to be an independent woman for that time period, with opening her own coffee shop, albeit a bit illegally. LOL He was rich, handsome and didn't think a woman could do anything on her own without a man. He learned different of course.

    The chemistry between Claire and Cyrus was good, it felt true and not forced. There was a nicely written sex scene so it's not a rated G book but definitely not erotic either.

    The story line and plot were good, but wow there was a lot of blah blah blah nonsense going on throughout the entire book. It could have been shortened by 2 hours, eliminating all that blah blah blah and would have been a much better story. All that blah blah blah just brought the story down in my opinion.

    See how that blah blah blah is annoying to read in my review? Yep, that's what it was like in the book.

    There was some dialogue, not enough in my opinion. But what dialogue there was, was good.
    .
    As for the narration it was great! I really like Marian Hussy. She does the men's voices well and gives everyone their own distinct voice. Her reading voice is very nice too.

    Story

    These three anthologies were pretty boring! So glad I am done and surprised myself by even finishing this book.

    The 1st book-Dark Hero by Hannah Howell- it was the best of the three.
    The 2nd book- Bride of the Beast by Adrienne Basso, it was second best of the three
    The 3rd book- Kiss of the Vampire by Eve Silver, it was the worst of the three, and very difficult to finish.
    All of them were about 110 pages each give or take.

    They all had sex, and quite a bit of dialogue, but the stories were just boring. The story lines and plots were dull and not memorable. Not one of them did I wish was a regular long book that I think I would enjoy.

    As for the narrator. She was barely okay. I have listened to her before and enjoyed her other narration much more than this one. I think it was the tone of voice she was reading in. It was sort of smug in a way. I don't know how to describe it really, but I can say that she did not help these boring stories and maybe made them even more boring.

    I did get this audible on sale with whispersync so I am really glad I didn't use a credit.

    Don't waste your time or money on this book. There are too many books out there that are enjoyable.This one was not.

    Lady Rebecca is determined to find a husband on her own terms, rather than marry any of the aging suitors her greedy aunt and uncle foist upon her. Her chance comes at the Kingsborough Ball, where she meets several potential grooms...yet no one compares to the dangerously handsome Daniel Neville. Notorious rake and heir to the Marquess of Wolvington, Daniel Neville is in need of a bride, but finding a lady who's willing to accept his past is an entirely different matter.

    Story

    This was such a great story. I loved that it was not full of angst the whole way through. Fantastic relief. More authors should write books with less angst like this one.

    I absolutely loved the heroine in this story. She was funny, charming, very witty, beautiful and so happy, especially considering how she was treated by her aunt and uncle.

    Loved Daniel, he was handsome, smart, and such a hero!

    The chemistry between the two is fantastic. I really loved the way they got to know each other, I mean really and truly got to know each other. Yes there was attraction at first sight but it was so much more than that. The sex scenes were very very well written. They really liked each other in and out of bed. LOL The honesty between them is so great and not the norm for historical romance novels.

    The story line and plot are great. The story flowed so well and just when you thought oh noo there is going to be a misunderstanding here... there wasn't!

    I listened/read this in one day it so much fun to listen too, A genuine treat!

    I totally recommend this book for all you historical romance fans that want to read a book with less angst and a hero and heroine you can really believe are made for each other.

    As for the narration, it was fantastic. Susan Duerden did a fantastic job as usual. The men sound like men the women sound like women, all the characters get their own distinct voice. She reads with all the emotion the story calls for. Perfect narrator for this book!

    Just a great very well written story! I want to see more of this author on audible!

    Story

    Geez I am glad this book is over. I will probably catch grief for this review but I have to be honest, and in my opinion this was a struggle to get through.

    The book started out good, but by chapter 10 it started going down hill. I want to delete chapter 25 completely from the book. Actually I would have liked chapters 11-32 deleted and this been a novella, it would have been better..

    He is a total jerk for the entire book until the last 5 minutes. She is so insecure it's pathetic. You can't save a character in the last 5 minutes or 5 pages of a book.

    He talks to her like she's a piece of crap at the same time all he thinks about is plunging into her. He is constantly talking about sex, sex and more sex that it becomes annoyingly repetitive. (don't get me wrong I like sex in my books, but his constant thoughts were just bad or badly written? hmm...)

    She is constantly talking about herself being ugly, fat, not good enough, hates her breasts, hair, stomach, legs, butt and everything else on her body. She is also somewhat of a prude, surprisingly to me because she is an author. Even the crippled boy wasn't as insecure as she is. She had some back bone at times but then contradicted herself the next sentence by saying she wasn't good enough! Ugh ...

    This story was a big disappointment to me. I just finished Three Weeks with Lady X a few days ago (loved it by the way, great story) and Vander's character was completely different in that story than in this story. He wasn't a total A-Hole in that book, Sorry to say, but the author ruined a great character from her previous book and made him the hero!

    There is way to much angst in this book. The "chemistry" is forced and did not seem genuine. Not sure but maybe it was because of the characters themselves. (he's a jerk, she's overly insecure). So I couldn't even enjoy that progression.

    There is lots of dialogue (I like lots of dialogue) however, the dialogue suffered because of the characters themselves... getting that repetitive feeling yet? Good, because that's what your getting with this book repetitive A-holeness and insecurities.

    The story that our heroine, Mia, is writing throughout the entire story was better. It was fun reading her "notes" at the beginning of each chapter. So there is that.

    In my opinion a sex maddened A-hole, hero and an insecure prudish heroine do not make for a good historical romance story. Just sayin....

    I have read several Eloisa James books and this one was just not good, it was annoying and frustrating hoping for these characters to change or something, anything, before the last 5 minutes.

    As for the narration, it was great! Susan Duerden did a fantastic job. She is becoming a favorite narrator. She reads with lots of emotion and the men sound like men.

    This was a great story. I really loved India\Xenobia character. Strong, smart, witty, independent. I really liked Thorne too. Handsome, a bit arrogant, smart and suave.
    They had some great chemistry together. Great sexual tension and attraction. There were a few very well written sex scenes too, so this is not a rated G book.

    The story line and plot were great, it flowed together very well. Lots and lots of great dialogue throughout the entire book.

    I really got a kick out of Rose. She was 5 going on 30 sometimes, giving some LOL moments for sure.

    As for the narration, it was great. Susan Duerden has become one of my favorites. She reads with such emotion, whispers, yelling, laughing etc.. if the story calls for it she does it. The men sound like men and everyone get their own distinct voice. Wonderful job SD!

    Yes I totally recommend this book to historical romance readers!

    Paranormal Security and Intelligence Operative Duke Marlow has a new mission: find, interrogate and possibly eliminate the target - Mercy Deluca. He knows looks can be deceiving, but it's hard to believe the beautifully quirky woman running around in a superhero t-shirt is a viable threat. The sexy little biomedical engineer quickly proves she is more than he bargained for and Intel has it all wrong - she's not the enemy. Far from it. Intel also forgot to mention one vital piece of information - she's Duke's mate.

    Story

    hmm not sure where to start. The story line\concept had promise, but got lost in juvenile translation. I am certainly glad it was only about 5 hours long.

    I did like Mercy, she was pretty funny with her quirkiness. There was lots of dialogue throughout the whole book and that was good.

    There is sex but not very well written sex by no means.

    I have to agree with WendyGael's audible review. She was pretty dead on in her review.

    The narration was great. I think Mason Lloyd did a good job on the female voice. He did a good job on Striker's Scottish accent too.

    I have no desire to move forward with this series. So it ends here for me with the first book. Luckily I got this as a free read with my KU subscription and only paid 1.99 for the audible. It is not really worth more than 1.99.

    This was a cute story. Entertaining. The heroine, Amelia had spunk, not a crybaby simpering heroine. Which is always good. I was looking forward to Thomas's story since the first book. I really liked him. Although I was a little annoyed at how he was sooo in love with the heroine from previous book, hence the 3.5 stars. There was some good chemistry between the two of them but this is a rated G book. There was a couple of kisses and tight breeches but that is it for the heat level.

    There was lots of dialogue throughout the entire book and that was good. The story line flowed nicely. It was a short book so not full of filler nonsense, that's a plus too.

    As for the narration. It was good. The men sounded like men and everyone had their own distinct voice. It was easy to follow along without the text.

    This was a very cute story. I liked it. I liked the heroine, she was spunky. The hero was interesting too. I haven't read a historical with a Gypsy hero before, so that was a change. They had some good chemistry together. No sex in this story but there was kissing and "discomfort in breeches" So it is rated G.

    I liked the story line and the plot, except for one thing that happened didn't get any closure. But I guess that's okay. There is lots of dialogue throughout the entire book which was great! I like it when people talk to each other and we don't just get the inner thoughts. So good job on the dialogue!

    As for the narration, Stevie Zimmerman did a good job with everyone's voices and the reading voice, except I didn't care for the voice she did for Emil our hero. He was a Gypsy so of course he needed and accent but he just didn't sound very sexy or handsome, he sounded sort of dumb at times. Hence the 3 stars for narration.

    This story was just not for me. I prefer sex in the story, not story in between sex, and then sex and then more sex. And this is pretty much how the book went. A little story and A LOT of sex.

    The narration was a bit annoying, Very long pauses at the end of each sentence. The reading voice was exactly the same as the hero, So sometimes it was confusing.

    This was a good story. Murder, mystery and romance. I really liked the hero, Jack. He was a great character. I liked the heroine Grace too. I think they had some good chemistry together. A nicely written sex scene so it's not rated G.

    I kind of figured out the mystery early on, but that's ok. There is lots of dialogue throughout the entire book. (I like lots of dialogue)

    And oh my, that Rosa! Wow what a mother! And I don't mean that in a good way! She was awful.

    Got this for free with my KU and only 1.99 on audible so it was a great deal for sure!
