    "Like the story line"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Hawk. He was complex


    How could the performance have been better?

    A different narrator. The narration sounded like reading rather than truly a performance like Barbara Rosenblat or Davina Porter


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    A little more dept. A little too much he said she said. But again, it could have been narrated better. Hopefully, the next one will be narrated better

    "Sweet Regency romance"

    I love Regency romances, you can just visualise the balls, the dresses, the carriages and of course the handsome rakes and scoundrels. Good romantic story.

    Good narrator too.

    Story
    "I just couldn't listen to this narrator."
    What disappointed you about How to Seduce a Scoundrel?

    There are a number of narrators that could have read this book better. Male or female, any choice would have helped.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    A voice like Prebble or even Eastlake or Potter.


    What didn’t you like about Elizabeth Jasicki’s performance?

    It was too difficult to get passed her version of "old english" elderly and gentry. she tried too hard to get a range of tones.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Unforunately, disappointment. It my be a good story, but I'd have to READ it to know.

    "Very Disappointed"
    Any additional comments?

    After really enjoying "How to Marry a Duke", which preceded this book, I found this follow up extremely disappointing. It's as if the author had one good book in her and then just threw this out there knowing we would buy it to follow the story. There was no plot, no interesting story line. I had to just stop listening numerous times due to being so annoyed by the simpering, tittering school girl atmosphere that permeated the story. There was sex without romance, "un-witty" banter and the same repetitious "woe is me" whining from both parties through out the book. While I found the narrator acceptable in the first book, I found her grating in this one. The book lacked the swept away romance and lovely descriptions of the times and places that I look for in historical romances. Sorry. Rarely ever this harsh a criticism, but this book was truly a waste of my money. JB

    "Scoundrels are so fun!"

    Great dialogue between characters and a fun story. Great story from a new up and coming author. Can't wait for her next book. Hopefully it will be available via audio book as well.
