    When I clean, drive or exercise I listen to romance. The steamier the better but it must have a great story as well!

    "Fun story"

    I liked this story. I was able to listen while cleaning and was kept entertained. I liked the narrator as well!

    "I'd forgotten what a great book this is..."

    My personal benchmark for a good book has always been whether or not I would read it again. Some books are actually better the second, or even third time around. Tempting Torment is one of them.

    I left this one on my "shelf" for longer than usual because it isn't really my favorite time period. I generally prefer Regency or early Victorian settings. This one is set after the Revolutionary War, with a hero who is involved in re-writing the Articles of Confederation.

    It begins in England with a heroine desperate to save an infant heir from an unscrupulous pair of guardians, moves to America and includes just about everything anyone might want to see in a period romance novel. Highwaymen, a nasty ex-fiancee, a huge loving family in the background, a hero behaving like a jackass, and a long suffering heroine - not to mention a background written so well that you feel as if you are there.

    I hope the author will make more of her books available on audio - and you will, too after you hear this one.

    "Better than expected."

    It took me a while to get into this book but once I did, it was worth it! The heroine's devotion to doing the right thing and the hero's determination to see things through helped me hang on too.
    I will give another one of her books a try.
