    Story
    "Touching, Unique Love Story"

    "Marrying the Mistress" is unlike any book I've read/heard concerning men marrying mistresses--it's a touching story of hardship, betrayal and unrequited love. The books description does not do it justice.

    The talented Juliet Landon was able to write a unique historical romance (not an easy task). She didn't resort to using 'filler words' to prolong the book, but keeps the story moving along smoothly to the end.

    Jenny Sterlin gave a wonderful performance, reading with such feeling as to bring tears to your eyes.

    I highly recommend it.

    Story
    "I just wanted to smack the two brothers!"
    Would you listen to Marrying the Mistress again? Why?

    Yes and I'm recommending it to my sister who loves historical romances. It held my attention, and I was really angry at the manipulative behaviour of the two brothers.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Marrying the Mistress?

    When Helene reads Linus' journal.


    Which character – as performed by Jenny Sterlin – was your favorite?

    I thought she did well with all of them.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes even though I knew it was going to have a happily ever after romance ending - this is a romance after all and not serious fiction.


    Any additional comments?

    If I'd written this story, it would have had an ending closer to Gone with the Wind ("Frankly my dear I don't give a damn") or Washington Square in which all is NOT forgiven. Manipulating someone for whatever reason really irritates me. As a romance, however, I thought this story was definitely better than 80% of what's out there that passes for romance.
