    Dr. Melanie Lipton is no stranger to the supernatural. She knows immortals better than they know themselves, right down to their stubborn little genes. So although a handsome rogue immortal seems suspicious to her colleagues, Sebastien Newcombe intrigues Melanie. His history is checkered, his scars are impressive, and his ideas are daring. But it's not his ideas that have Melanie fighting off surges of desire.... Bastien is used to being the bad guy. In fact, he can't remember the last time he had an ally he could trust. But Melanie is different....

    Story

    Wow, I guess I am in minority here with my review of this book. Because I thought this story was a mess. The concept of the story was good, a white witch who goes back in time to the year 1815 from present day. However, the story line and plot were all over the place, none of it flowed well together at all. Lacked any cohesiveness and jumped around too much. Nonsensical is a good word to describe the way this story was written. I felt like I was listening\reading someone's random thought process and said I will make a book out of this.

    SIGH....

    The connection between the h/h was so strange and forced, not at all authentic or sincere. The dialogue was lacking as well. The ending was just strange.

    I think the story is more about the hero, Hunter MacTorry's revenge\story than the heroine, Exerilla. It was just all very strange.

    And how many villains can you have in one book? There were quite a few in this one.

    I almost didn't finish it. Glad it was free on amazon and 1.99 on audible.

    As for the narration. Not so good. I didn't care for the voices she gave the characters. This was not an easy book to just listen to. It was hard to discern who was who when she was reading, Besides the fact, there were so many characters it didn't help. This book only had 228 pages and has at least 12 characters.

    Story

    Geez, I am so glad this book is over. We get a description of a heroine that is supposed to be strong willed and that is not what we get. She was not a strong heroine at all. More whiny and pitiful really. The hero, well he was hurt 8 years ago and can never love again.. Blah Blah Blah, so sad. Now he is a rogue and not good enough for our sweet Anne!. ugh! This was an annoying story

    Okay so there is misunderstandings the entire way through the last half of the book, its insane! This book literally drove me crazy and couldn't wait to finish it. It was full of repetitive misunderstanding thoughts over and over and over.

    The attraction between the two is not believable. They have a few encounters and think they know everything about the other and we still have all the misunderstanding garbage going on. The story was so contradicting it was aggravating.

    There was no sex in this book until you get the last 5 minutes or pages then it is so mildly written and short it could almost be a rated G book. That is not a complaint I am just pointing that out to those who look for that, or not, in a book.

    The dialogue was minimal, I guess because we get read the thoughts of what he or she believes the other's expression meant. Fact. That is really how this story went.

    This book does not even compare to the first book in this series. I loved the first book it was very good.

    As for the narrator, he is good, but NOT for this book. Since most of this book is from her perspective (not written in the first person) I believe a female should have narrated this story.

    This was a waste of a narrator to me. The book was lacking in its story already and the narration did not help it at all.

    Sometimes a narrator can make an okay book better. This did not occur.

    I would listen to Tim Campbell again for sure but not a historical romance set in England 1800's A medieval historical yes for sure.

    The long and short of it is, this story was extremely frustrating and repetitive, not enjoyable.

    My cock has an appetite. A huge and very particular appetite: blond, curvy, and preferably not a fucking liar... (Although that's a story for another day.) As a high-profile lawyer, I don't have time to waste on relationships, so I fulfill my needs by anonymously chatting and sleeping with women I meet online. My rules are simple: one dinner. One night. No repeats. This is only casual sex. Nothing more. Nothing less. At least it was until Alyssa...

    Story

    This was a really good story. It was not all just sex, sex, sex and more sex, there was actually a very good story in this book. I find that some books that contain erotica are mostly just about that. This was not, and that is a treat for sure.

    There was a lot of sex and it was hot and steamy but it was NOT BDSM (thankfully).

    The characters were great. I loved Andrew, even though he could be harsh at times he was blunt and to the point! "is there crazy glue on my floor"? "Then why are you still standing there"? HAHA! But he did have reason to be so harsh, he had a great back story. You couldn't help but love him.

    I liked Aubrey too, she was a strong character and stood up to Andrew, making the story more realistic and believable. She didn't take any crap either.

    The story line and plot were great. There was lots of dialogue throughout the book.

    I don't normally read\listen to books written in the first person with dual POV's because they are tend to be repetitive and the inner thoughts ramble on and on. This book was not like that at all. Another treat!

    As for the narrations,
    Sabastian York has one of the sexiest voices ever! He did a great job and even did the female voices very well. Just love him!

    Erin Mallon did a good job too, however, she was so breathy, a lot. It was like she was too hesitant or nervous or something like that when she was speaking. She did do the male voice very well though so she gets stars for that.

    Story

    Wow what great stories. Gotta love 3 great stories in one book.

    The first story is To Dare the Duke of Dangerfield, with Caitlin Southall and Harlow Telford, the Duke of Dangerfield. Loved this story. Really liked the wicked wager they started, cards, cake baking and a horse race. They had some great chemistry together and very nicely written sex scene. The was lots and lots of dialogue throughout the entire book! Love lots of dialogue. The story line and plot were great. About 130 pages long.

    The second story is To Wager the Marquis of Wolverstone, with Sabine and Marcus Danvers the marquis of Wolverstone. I enjoyed this story too. She had a bit of a brutal past but overcame it. Asking the man she loved for 10 years for help with destroying someone. Again great story line and plot. Great chemistry between them and a nicely written sex scene as well. Lots of dialogue throughout the story. About 138 pages long.

    The third story is To Challenge the Earl, with Amy Shipton and Henry St. Giles the Earl of Cravenswood. Great story too. Cracked me up at one point when she was hiding under his bed and he decides to pleasure himself! Totally LOL! They too had great chemistry and a very nicely written sex scene. The story line and plot were good. Lots of dialogue throughout the book! About 152 pages long.

    These were not long stories so they were not full of filler nonsense, which is a total treat for me!

    As for the narration of Marian Hussey, it was fantastic! Loved it. She did all the men's voices very well and gave everyone a voice. She read with emotion.

    I totally recommend this trilogy book and this narrator!

    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.

    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.

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.

    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!

    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.
