    When Regina's friends insist on setting her up a "Fantasy Fix" to help her get over her cheating ex, she dreams up some kinky out-of-this-world encounters that they could never possibly bring to life. But the next thing Regina knows, her friends have got her laced into a shiny black corset, tight leather pants, and a sexy pair of stilettos. It's time for some downtown vampire-fantasy fun...

    This story was not so good. I couldn't even finish this book. I wish I would have listened to the reviews and just skipped this one, it has turned me off to the rest of the series.
    The narrator was fine.

    I could not finish this book it was so dull and boring, not to mention I was reading this via whispersync and the narrator Sue Pitkin or rather "Spitkin" since she sounds like she is spitting when she is reading was awful. Sorry, but a boring story, boring heroine, and terrible narration makes for a terrible book.

    Luckily this book was a free listen and read with my KU subscription.

    For Winfield Elliott, Viscount Stillwell, finding a prospective bride always seemed easy. Perhaps too easy. With three broken engagements to his name, Win is the subject of endless gossip. Yet his current mission is quite noble: to hire a company to repair his family’s fire-damaged country house. Nothing disreputable in that - until the firm’s representative turns out to be a very desirable widow. Lady Miranda Garret expected a man of Win’s reputation to be flirtatious, even charming. But the awkward truth is that she finds him thoroughly irresistible.

    Story

    Okay, that was a boring waste of time. Glad its over. Nothing memorable and way too much filler nonsense. Could have been shortened by about 5 hours and then maybe would have been interesting, because the concept was good. I liked that Miranda was an architect and ran her own business, but it was muddied by all the nonsense.

    Yawn.. Save your credits, money and time.

    As for the narration, well it was not very good at all. The narrator did a better job on the female voice than he did the hero's voice. He sounded mad, mean, old and crotchety. Sad when a male narrator can do female voices better than the hero. He gets 2 stars for doing a good job on female voices. And minus 5 stars for the hero's voice.

    Not sure what happened to this narrator. He did a fantastic job on Brenda Novak's, A Matter of Grave Concern, since then I have tried to listen to 3 of his books and they have been terrible narrations. Sorry Michael Page, but the hero should at least sound sexy not mean, old and crotchety.

    Glad this book was a free read on my KU subscription and 1.99 on audible or I would be upset and it would be necessary to have returned it. But I suffered through it. And it was a struggle not to give up.

    After the tragic death of his wife, Jasper, the 8th Duke of Bainbridge buried himself away in the dark cold walls of his home, Castle Blackwood. When he's coaxed out of his self-imposed exile to attend the amusements of the Frost Fair, his life is irrevocably changed by his fateful meeting with Lady Katherine Adamson. With her tight brown ringlets and silly white-ruffled gowns, Lady Katherine Adamson has found her dance card empty for two Seasons.

    Story

    I absolutely loved this story! The hero, Jasper was devastated at his loss and then comes the heroine, Katherine, she was fantastic! Loved her. She was strong, funny, witty and just perfect for our broken hero. They made a perfect couple. There was a couple of very nicely written sex scenes.

    The story line was truly a wonderful love story and flowed very nicely. There was not as much dialogue as I normally like but there was still enough and it was great!

    I totally recommend this book for sure!

    As for the narration, one of the very best I have listened to in a long time. She made a fantastic story even better with her wonderful narration. Everyone had their own distinct voice and she read with emotion as called for. Her reading voice was beautiful. Loved it! I do hope Morag Sims narrates many many more books. I will be looking for her narrations!

    I certainly hope that the next book in this series More Than a Duke is released on audible very soon and narrated by Morag Sims! I will be watching for it! Fingers crossed.

    London 1814... Drake, Duke of Manchester is searching the Marriage Mart for a perfect bride. He wants a woman who is poised, sophisticated, and worthy of the title Duchess. But most of all, he wants a woman who does not want the useless emotion of love. Socially awkward Miss Penelope Clayton isn't meant for marriage. A serious botanist, she has no desire to wed, so being forced by her guardian to participate in the Season to find a husband is torture.

    Story

    This was a cute story, I liked the heroine enough, however she could have been a bit stronger. I did like her awkwardness it made for some funny moments. As for the hero, he was a bit annoying with the "perfect duchess" comments all the time. There was a couple sex scenes, mildly written, but they were nice.

    The story line was okay but it was a bit lacking and could have been better. it was a pretty mindless read, meaning, nothing much to follow along with. If you missed a chapter it was no big deal. There was a lot of dialogue throughout so that was good.

    As for the narration... well, it was not very good. I listened to this book directly after the first one of the series which was The Elusive Wife. The narration in that book was great, except for Drake's voice. In that book he sounded like a high pitched whiny female, but he wasn't the main character so who cares right? Well guess what? She didn't change his voice for this book at all. It was awful. It was really hard to get past.

    This was a cute story. The heroine, Olivia was definitely elusive for quite a long time though. A bit too long IMO. But I liked her a lot, She was strong with a mind of her own. I did like the Hero, Jason, after getting over him being a total cad at first. They ended up having some great chemistry and a couple of nice written sex scenes.

    There was lots of dialogue throughout the entire book which was great.
    As for the story it was nice, no 5 star story, but a nice story. The plot was a bit weak to be sure. and the story line could have been better.

    As for the narration, this is the first I have heard of Billie Fulford-Brown and see she only has a few books narrated, Well I do hope she continues to narrate, she was great! Lots of emotion and the men sound like men and everyone had their own voice, I do think the narration made this book so much better. She was a joy to listen too.

    What a great story, Really liked it a lot. Love the hero's in these stories, big, strong, handsome, and sexy! Just Wow! The heroine was good too. Not whining and simpering. They have some great chemistry and some nicely written sex scenes.

    The story line and plot was fantastic. There is so much dialogue throughout the book and it flows very nicely.

    As for the narration. I was very good, Brad Wills did a great job on the heroin's voice for being a man. The hero sounds really sexy! The only reason he got 4 stars instead of 5 was because he has a habit of pausing at the end of every sentence. It is rather annoying, you don't think a second is a long time until your listening to an audible book. Read a sentence...........pause.................. read a sentence........ pause. Sigh.. if he quit that he would be a 5 star narrator.

    This was a fun read\listen. I enjoyed both the hero and the heroine. They had some good chemistry and a couple of nicely written sex scenes. Since she was from the future and thrown back into the 1500's highland times so she was the sex ed teacher. Some funny moments there.

    The story line and plot were fun. There was a lot of dialogue throughout the book.

    As for the narration it was good, I do like Marian Hussey's narrations. The men sound like men and everyone gets their own distinct voice, and she includes some emotion in her reading. Very enjoyable to listen to her. She is actually what drew me to listen to this book.

    This was a fun read. I am a fan of Tessa Dare for sure. I really enjoyed the heroine Clio, she was strong, smart, witty, clever and had a mind of her own. The hero, Rafe was strong and handsome. They had some great chemistry and sex. The sex scenes are great, not erotica but more than mild, and very nicely written.

    The story line was good. There was a lot of great dialogue throughout the book.

    As for the secondary characters, I absolutely adored Clio's sister, Phoebe and I do hope she gets her own book. She is a fantastic character.

    As for the narration it was pretty good, I did speed it up to 1.25 speed at times and it seemed much better, she did try and deepen her voice for the male characters and read with emotion. I would listen to her again.

    Not my favorite Tessa Dare Book but still worth the credit for sure!

    Story

    This story was not as good as the previous story, In My Wildest Fantasies, at all. I really enjoyed that story. this one was just okay, kinda dull really. Nothing memorable happened. The hero and heroine were just sort of boring.

    The story line and plot were lacking terribly. Like another reviewer said a one night stand ends up in Baby Mama Drama, of the boring kind.

    There was a lot of dialogue so that was good. There was a couple of nicely written sex scenes and that was good too. Nothing erotic, just nicely written.

    As for the narration, Well.... to be honest I am not a big fan of Rosalyn Landor's narrations. Her reading voice is meh and she sounds to much like the men's characters voices, she is just sort of boring and annoying to listen too. Not really emotional and all the men always sound the same exactly. I don't dislike her like some narrators but if I had a choice it would not be her narrating that is for sure.

    I may still listen to the next book in this series, When a Stranger Loves Me, since I did enjoy the first book. I don't give up easily unless it is completely atrocious. This was not atrocious just a little boring.
