Publisher's Summary

In this lush and seductive novel, exciting new author Tessa Dare takes desire to brazen heights.

Ever the bold adventuress, Lucy Waltham has decided to go hunting for a husband. But first she needs some target practice. So she turns to her brother's best friend, Jeremy Trescott, the Earl of Kendall, to hone her seductive wiles on him before setting her sights on another man. But her practice kisses spark a smoldering passion that could send all her plans up in smoke.

Jeremy has an influential title, a vast fortune, and a painful past full of long-buried secrets. He keeps a safe distance from his own emotions, but to distract Lucy from her reckless scheming, he must give his passions free rein. Their sensual battle of wills is as maddening as it is delicious, but the longer he succeeds in managing the headstrong temptress, the closer Jeremy comes to losing control. When scandal breaks, can he bring himself to abandon Lucy to her ruin? Or will he risk his heart and claim her for his own?

    Devotee of multi-tasking, keen gardener and cross-stitcher. Now able to do both AND listen to stories at the same time. Bliss.

    "Good story, painful narration"

    One of those times where I wish I'd paid attention to other reviewers; Helen Moore-Gillon's stilted narration ruined the story for me, which is a shame because I had enjoyed Tessa Dares other book currently available here. Next time I see Helen Moore-Gillon as a narrator of something I want to have, I'm just going to buy the book and avoid the audio version.

    "Buy the book not the audio book in this one."

    I liked the story. But I wish I would have read this one. I didn't care for the performance. The reader read some parts to fast. And some to slow she almost sounded lost. Voice did not match characters.

    "Awful awful narrator!"
    Would you be willing to try another one of Helen Moore-Gillon’s performances?

    I will never listen to anything that she narrates again.


    Any additional comments?

    I love the other books of Tessa Dare that I've read. It's just so disappointing when they engage a bad narrator. Did they listen to her read anything before they hired her?

    Story
    "Horrible narrator. To annoying to listen to."
    Would you try another book from Tessa Dare and/or Helen Moore-Gillon?

    Love Tessa Dare. Unable to listen to annoying, irritating voice of Helen Moore-Gillon.


    What could Tessa Dare have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Used different narrator. Perhaps Carmen Rose, Rosalyn Landor, Carolyn Morris, Susan Duerden or Susan Ericksen


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Never got more than 10 minutes into book. Narrator's voice was soooo annoying.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Goddess of the Hunt?

    Narrator was so horrible I was unable to listen to book


    Any additional comments?

    Absolutely love Tessa Dare,.... irritated beyond reason by narration of Helen Moore-Gillon. I'm sure Helen Moore-Gillon is lovely person but I will never again purchase book narrated by her.

    Story
    "slow"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    yes, but not as an audio book. The story could have been good, but the slowness of the reader made it taxing to listen to .


    What other book might you compare Goddess of the Hunt to and why?

    very similar to all the tessa dare novels in the overcoming past issues that have gone unspoken


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    too slow a reader and over emphasised too many elements of the story


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    The characters did things that showed strength, but so many of there thoughts went unsaid because of fear. It seemed like if a few of the concerns were shared with the main characters, there would have been less problems.
    The female lead was always doing things wrong and misunderstanding. The only thing that the male lead consistantly acknowledges is that she is beautiful. There doesn't seem to be much more to credit her.

    "Could not even finish this one"
    What would have made Goddess of the Hunt better?

    I do not know if it was the narrator or the story, but I could not muddle through this one...what a disappointment!


    Has Goddess of the Hunt turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, I am an avid romance reader...but this one just did not move!


    What three words best describe Helen Moore-Gillon’s performance?

    Unconvincing, forced...


    Any additional comments?

    Stay away from this one! There are so many better ones!

    "BREATHTAKING!!"

    LOVE NOVELS WHERE CHARACTERS WERE ALREADY OLD FRIENDS. THE STORY IS MUCH MORE LIVELY WITH MANY FUN PARTS AND THE HERO IS ALWAYS TRYING TO PROTECT HIS BELOVED.
    A LOT OF FUN!!
    I DISLIKE MALE VOICE OF THE NARRATOR...VERY UNPLEASANT,I PREFER MALE NARRATORS.

    "Enjoyable story but horrible male voices!"

    It really does ruin a romance when the hero of the piece sounds like a moron most of the time...It just takes the pleasure out of listening to the story. Very frustrating!
