When Lorelei Sundun first finds Sir Argus Wherlocke in her garden, she's never heard of the mysterious Wherlocke clan - or their other worldly abilities. That changes the moment she watches Argus - the most tantalizing man she's ever seen disappear before her very eyes. What she's witnessed should be impossible. But so should falling in love with a man she's only just met....
Pursued by a madman intent on harnessing the Wherlockes' talents as weapons, Argus meant to seek help from his family, not to involve a duke's lovely daughter in the struggle. But now, the enchanting Lorelei is his only hope for salvation - and the greatest temptation he's ever faced....

Sir Argus needs someone strong to save him and our heroine is very strong and stubborn, this story is amazing and I not only love the writing, as Hannah Howell is brilliant but I love the way Ashford MacNab narrates, this is a series that I will listen to over and over again and It makes me anxious for the next in the series.
Ahh.. 2- one and two stars reviews and 56 four and five star reviews. Go figure..
I loved this book, as well as the other 3 that I read in this series, and will now move on to the 5th one.
I find the Wherlocke's and Vaughn's a fascinating family.
Loved Argus, and how he met Lorelie. Loved how she went looking for him and saved him from Charles.
AND Charles and his two minions got exactly what they deserved.
Loved his son's Olwen and Daries. Always love seeing Olympia and Iago.
And I adored Lorelie's father, Roland and the butler, Max.
A great read filled with murder, mischief, and mayhem.
With awesome sexual tension and sex that was very well written.
As to the narrator: Simply awesome! Ms. McNab could stand to read a little more emotion in her books but as long as the men sound like men, I'm good. Nothing worse than two people making love and having them BOTH sound just like the male or female narrator, no difference in their voices whatsoever. Gotta have men and women's voices in a book or it's not worth listening to. IMO..
Avid reader time permitting. Love audio books as I can multitask, love being inserted into the time & place of story thru narrators accents.
I always enjoy being able to listen to the audio version of the books so that I'm able to hear the correct pronunciation of unfamiliar words or dialect. Also I'm able to do other activities while listening.. 😊
The other books in the series.. They are all excellent!
Yes, she does a very good job with the variety of male and female voices and accents. Children are well done also. Since there are often several male characters, it can sometimes be a little confusing as they sometimes sounded similar.
The guy on the cover was very good looking, he just didn't look like the character described in the book. I really prefer for the continuity of look between the cover model and the character's description written in the book.. So who ever chooses the audio covers (and book covers) might wish to take that into consideration.. Hair color, length, eye color etc. Just a thought.
The very lovely Lorelei Sundun had never here of the mysterious Wherlock clan and their other worldly abilities. However after a surprisingly handsome man appeared in her garden, quite nude asking her for help, then that same nude man disappear a moment later in front of her eyes she thought she was insane. Quite possibly what she witnessed was impossible, but the fact remained that she was totally intrigued that she just might be falling in love with a ghost! She must do something, but what?
Caught by a madman intent on stealing Argus Wherlocke’s gift /talent to be used as weapons, Argus needed to alert and seek help from his family. He didn’t plan to involve a duke’s lovely daughter in the struggle, but now the lovely Lorelei is his only hope for salvation.
I have long been a follower of Ms. Howell’s Wherelocke series and believe me it just gets better and better and the characters, she creates are immensely endearing and lovable. I particularly loved Lorelei, her father the duke, his brood of children, and his butler! What an incredibly loving family, including siblings, and cousins. But that is not all, because Lorelei did get the word out to Argus’ family and they all came to rally round to help capture the madmen who thought to steal the Wherelocke’s gifts. Naturally, each and every one of the Wherelocke’s had their own individual gifts and talents. Discovering some all over again, some new and some I’ve seen before in earlier volumes just added to the enjoyment of reading this series.
The villain’s in IF HE’S DANGEROUS were particularly vile, which made for a lot of juicy adventures, thrills and chills, excitement, and ever lasting suspense. Much of it ‘edge-of-the-seat’ suspense. This is just simply one of my favorite series with fast paced adventures, quite sensual romances and just one of the best series of exciting adventures.
Ashford MacNab, Narrator, takes the impeccable writing of Hannah Howell and makes it into a visible theater of images for the listener. Great job for both author and narrator. LOVE this series.
This is not my favorite that's for sure. The first 3 books I gave 5 stars, this one barely made 3 stars. It was somewhat boring and uneventful in comparison to the previous books in this series.
The hero is not so much a hero, he is pretty blah. The heroine I do like very much. I also like her back story and her family, including her butler, Max! She was strong, smart and witty.
There is lots of dialogue throughout the book which is great, I do like lots of dialogue. There is sex so this is not a rated G book.
The story line and plot were a good concept, and it started out real good, but then the story just got lost and there seemed to be too much filler nonsense. The opposite of the previous books. They were full of anticipation and never a dull moment, whereas this book I had to skim pages to get to something happening. Just meh...
I will of course still read the next book and hope the author just had some writer's block with this story. I am looking forward to Lady Olympia's book.
As for the narrator, she is good. The men sound like men, the ladies sound like ladies and she does give most everyone their own distinct voice.
Love historical and paranormal romances with smart, imperfect people who against the odds find love when they are not looking for it.
What a wonderful mix of historical romance and paranormal romance. The characters are real, likeable and consistent in each book. The narrator is perfect because you can get lost in the story and feel as if you are there. Start with book one and enjoy a continual love story complete with sensuality and mystery, with villains and heroes, some giggles, some tragedy and a family full of special gifts thrown in for good measure. Enjoy!
