Publisher's Summary

A Desperate Choice

Lady Grace Warren will do anything to protect her sisters, even betroth herself to a man so depraved that all of London fears him. Faced with a lifetime of misery, Grace has only one chance for escape: to relinquish her virtue before her wedding. Such abandon will destroy her reputation - and ensure her freedom. But when she disguises herself as courtesan to lure a handsome nobleman, she cannot anticipate the tender surprise destiny has in store….

A Twist of Fate

Vincent Germaine, Duke of Raeborn, has lost two wives in childbirth and still has no heir. Racked by guilt and grief, he seeks comfort in the arms of an enchanting stranger. But when he realizes their night of passion may have resulted in another dangerous pregnancy, he sets out to track down the innocent female - only to find his heart captured by a woman of incomparable courage and beauty.

    "Lots of Graces abound!"

    Fairly typical historical romance listen but the narration made up for it. If I figure out the ending by half way through the story that pretty much says it all.

    "A great listen"

    A selfless virgin, a couple of villans, and a broken man who is handsome, rich, titled and in need of rescuing, gives this tale all the ingredients for a great book for romance junkies. Interestingly my grandfather lost two wives in childbirth before his third wife finally made him a father (lucky for me hey!!) so to the sceptics it did happen in the past ..... a lot!
    I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to more books by Laura.

    "Nicely written"
    Where does Intimate Deception rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Yes, however there were a few instances where the narrator erred with characters


    What other book might you compare Intimate Deception to and why?

    Sounds like the plot in Devil's Bride


    What three words best describe Sarah Coomes’s voice?

    Strong and Weak


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

    the Duke's emotion took some of the thrill away -- I would like to have seen a little more manly strength

    "a different twist to a normal historical romance"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it was enjoyable. I loved a strong herione who does what she needs to. It was lite on the sex scenes which was ok with me!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The fact that a lady -virgin- would pose as a prostitute is outrageous! ok so the fact that she even KNEW a whore ...


    What does Sarah Coomes bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She did a fine job!

    Story
    "Too much angst!"

    Half of the book is angst. I've heard it already, again, again, again. Seems like the author didn't have enough story & so repeated the insecurities over & over. I had to fast forward a lot . It does get better toward the end. The only reason I could listen to the whole thing is because I was doing a boring task at the same time.

    Story
    "Couldnt abide narrator so stopped listening"
    What disappointed you about Intimate Deception?

    Basically I could not stand the narrator (personal opinion of course). The male voices were not brilliant and the female voices were very girly and all very similar. I think the book might have been interesting otherwise but I could not keep listening to the narrator. I did not get passed chapter one, unfortunately.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Laura Landon again?

    Yes. I have purchased other Laura Landon books and thoroughly enjoyed them.


    What didn’t you like about Sarah Coomes’s performance?

    As mentioed above I found very little difference in each of the female voices and they were very girly which was annoying. The male voices were not that brilliant either. When Coomes was just narrating the story line and thoughts and not doing the actual speech of people her voice was fine. However the speech of people prevented me from enjoying the actual story.


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

    Just couldnt get into the book at all


    Any additional comments?

    I don't like to make negative comments but I was very disappointed in he narrator of this book

    "Boring!"
    What disappointed you about Intimate Deception?

    An interesting premise ruined by poor story-telling. The author basically said the same thing over and over.


    Has Intimate Deception turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Heavens no!


    Did Sarah Coomes do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    She was just okay. Sometimes I couldn't tell who was speaking. Her males voices were weak.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Intimate Deception?

    Quite a few. The author went on and on about how the hero was deceived. There was no tension in the story. Even the danger was boring and poorly developed.


    Any additional comments?

    I would say pass on this book. It's a total waste of time.

    "Enjoyable"

    I have no complaints about this book. The characters were likable and the story line had a good pace. The narration was good as well. It might have been a little predictable, but it didn't take away from my enjoyment.

    Story
    "nicely enjoyable!"
    What did you love best about Intimate Deception?

    The depth of desperation and the struggle to get out of it became a addiction, a way to lose sleep and irritate the people around you when you can't turn it off. ...


    What other book might you compare Intimate Deception to and why?

    Ug, my least favorite question! Every book should be a entity of its own! But if I had to compare I would say another Laura Landon... I love it when the man in the story has to play second to the heroin yet be such a strong part of the tale. Once more proving the point that this story is unique too.


    Have you listened to any of Sarah Coomes’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I really like her narratives! I would say if I HAD to find fault it would be that I usually hear a single female voice that sounds distinctly male. And I don't know why. .. I know that she doesn't need to. .. it's a quirk perhaps. ...


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I'm sorry I won't offer up a spoiler. .. I would have to say it is a musical moment....


    Any additional comments?

    I encourage you to buy it... but save your credits... it's not worth it when you can buy it so inexpensively. ...

    Story
    "Narrator ruined it"
    What did you like best about Intimate Deception? What did you like least?

    The story was very good. I liked the characters and the story line. However, the narrator was horrible. It took everything I had to continue to listen. The only reason I continued to listen was because I liked the story-line & characters. I can't understand why someone would invest so much into a book simply to ruin the entire thing by using a horrible narrator.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Horrid voice and the voice she used for the hero was unbelievably rediculous.


    Did Intimate Deception inspire you to do anything?

    find another book but with a different narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    If you can stand the narrator, the book is definitely good. However the narrator takes so much of a good story and makes it almost bad.
