    "NARRATOR: STILL NOT MY FAVORITE"

    My thoughts on the first book in this series was completely negative regarding the narrator. I decided to listen to the second in the series to see if I felt any different. Not much! The only thing I will give the narrator credit for are the childrens' voices. Others were screeching and very irritating while one of the main characters, Ashton, was SO MUNDANE! Really hard to listen to in my opinion. I'm so sorry to see that Ashford MacNab reads all the series with the exception of the last release. Maybe there's hope!

    Just so that I'm clear...I do love the story and Hannah Howell.

    "What a great story! Never a dull moment!"

    Wow I am loving this series! It's so good. The Hero, Ashton and the Heroine, Penelope are just awesome, both smart, beautiful and witty. I love her gift! They had some great chemistry, not fake or forced. Some nicely written sex scenes.

    The story line and plot are great, I love the "gifts" the Wherelocks and the Vaughns have. There is so much dialogue throughout the entire series. So many things happening. Never a dull moment. I enjoyed all the secondary characters as well. The kids were especially great, and so funny.

    The villains were really villainous too!

    I totally recommend this book as well as the previous book, I have already started book 3 and am loving that one too.

    The narrations is very good in this series so far. Ashford McNab is hit and miss sometimes and these are definitely a hit! (I did speed it up to 1.25 speed and it was perfect).

    I enjoy historical, paranormal, and contemporary romance. Also steampunk, sci-fi, fantasy, suspense, and fiction. I'm open to about anything

    Story
    "Better than the first one"

    Setting: England 1788
    Genre: Romantic Suspense/ paranormal

    I continue to have the same problem with Ashford MacNab as I had in the previous book; an unfortunate lack in differentiating between characters.

    The characters and main plot were interesting. We find the hero in a brothel where his friends have purchased him a virgin sacrifice fantasy prior to his betrothing himself to a wealthy heiress. He finds Penelope tied spread-eagle on the bed and feels an all-engaging lust for the first time in his life. He has approached all his previous liaisons with mistresses as simple exercises in meeting a biological need. She is there after being snatched off the street, and is high as a kite from the drug the madam gave her. She tries to tell him who she is and how she came to be there, but he doesn't believe it. Just as he is set to do the deed, her younger half brothers arrive to help her. So the plot revolves around finding out who snatched her, and what happened to the girl whose ghost she'd seen at the brothel. Overall, a better plot than the first book. A bit more suspense, but stretched out over a couple of sub-plots. Once again, there is very little to indicate the time period. If you've read Eloisa James' Desperate Duchesses series, you can tell how it could have been anchored in that era. The world-building is loose, as not many characters from the first book are brought into the story, but seems to getting better - though not as good as Julia Quinn's Bridgerton or Smythe-Smith world. Again, the book has several points of view, which can be disconcerting. There's a bit more paranormal, but not as much as I would like.

    If you liked the first in the series, though they don't have to be read in order, you'll like this a tad bit more.

    Story
    "Overrated"

    I bought this audiobook because of it's high ratings. I was disappointed. The lead male character's voice sounded like a drone or a transvestite and the story was very predictable. I did not listen to the last 40 mins., I was bored.

    I'm a 54 year old mail carrier. I listen to books around 6 hours a day. Listening to just about any fiction genre. Just starting to review.

    "Like the story but not the narrator"
    Would you listen to If He's Sinful again? Why?

    The story is a bit predictable but still a good read. The narrator though was a HUGE distraction. A sixteen year old boy sounds like Riff Raff from Rocky Horror, in fact most of the male characters sound like a bunch of guys imitating Riff Raff.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of If He's Sinful?

    Really no stand out moments


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Ashford MacNab?

    ANYONE!!!!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    NO


    Any additional comments?

    I would like to get the rest of the series but frankly with this narrator you better come up with one hell of a price drop (maybe a $.01 sale or BOGO).

    "How slow can a narrator speak?"

    The story is a little slow as it is. When you put that to a very slow speaker you will have no trouble falling asleep. I found myself increasing the speed on the play but then it sounds funny. It's hard to keep in involved with the story.

    Story
    "Oh! This one was good!"

    Given how underwhelmed I was by book 1 in this series, that's how much I loved this one! Hannah Howell has completely redeemed herself in my eyes, and given me something so interesting and engrossing that I spent too many nights in the facinating company of her Wherlockes.

    Sexy and intriguing, this book was short on humor, but long on great characters. The villains are beyond evil, and freak me out a little! The supernatural element actually worked, adding a new dimension to the genre.

    My only complaint, and it's a small one, is Ashford MacNab. Her delivery is so maudlin and plodding all the time that it's hard to feel happy or excited when the plot calls for it. She reads every word with the same dramatic inflection and tone. Ah well, that's our Ashford for you. (Also, her Welsh accent is atrocious, but it is a hard one to do.) All her heros and heroines have the same exact voice regardless of what they sounded like in previous books -- and it bugged me a tiny bit --- but only because I listened to the books back to back.

    Its my fault. I've been going through this series like a box of bon bons, and it's given me a bit of a tummy ache.

    Do yourself a favor -- if you get into this series, take a break between each of the books. That way you probably won't have that problem.

    This one goes in the reread pile -- but I'll have to wait a while.

    "The narrator ruins this story:("
    Would you try another book from Hannah Howell and/or Ashford MacNab?

    Hannah Howell - yes Ashford MacNab - NO!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story is good, but the narrator is awful....


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator sounds like she's trying to do an imitation of Riff-Raff from Rocky Horror Picture show. All her voices sound the same...

    "Awesome book..Awesome narrator.."
    Any additional comments?

    Loved this book. Penelope and Ashton were a wonderful twosome. Hated Lady Clarrisa and Charles. It was funny how Charles was injured. And was sad for Brant and Faith.
    This was a great storyline with excellent sexual tension and some really great sex.
    I'm reading the 3rd book now and I'm really enjoying it. I have no doubt that I'll read the entire series.

    As to the narrator: Ms. McNab is one of the very best narrators around. Men sound like men and that's what's important.

    This series will not put you to sleep. The special gifts that the family has defiantly peeks my interest.
