Publisher's Summary

In the night, all rules are forgotten...

Eloisa James, the acclaimed author of Potent Pleasures, returns to Regency England with an unforgettable new heroine - a genteel but naughty innocent who gets more than she bargains for when she finally says yes to love.

To her legions of adoring suitors, it comes as quite a shock when Lady Sophie York rejects an offer of marriage from the dashing, rakish Patrick Foakes in favor of amiable but dull Braddon Chatwin. He may be an earl, but it is Patrick's stolen kisses that sear her lips.

When Patrick, in disguise, scales a ladder to retrieve his friend's fiancée, he never expects the elopement to be his own. Neither does Sophie, Braddon, or the rest of the tattling ton. One hasty wedding later, the passionate innocent and the sophisticated rogue play out their own intricate dance as Sophie masters what it takes to keep a man where he belongs. And Patrick learns the ultimate lesson in love.

    "Fell Flat"

    While this book didn't change my auto-buy-author standing for Eloisa James, I don't think it was one of her best. Sophie and Patrick were likable characters, but the miscommunication and erroneous conclusions they would draw became tedious. Their repetitive misunderstandings thinned out and "dumbed down" both the plot and characters. The book had the potential for more depth and intrigue within the "Ottoman(Turkish)/French(Napoleonic)/spy/sabotage" subplot, but it seemed as though the author lost her aim or simply didn't want to dig that deep and it ended up falling flat.

    I love reading but don't have time. The audiobooks allow me to hear the books I want to read. I love audible!

    "Same formula as Potent Pleasures"

    I was disappointed that the story was the same "formula" as the first in the series. I also found the resolutions along the way to be a bit too neat and quick. I was however impressed with Eloisa James' presentation and exploration of real life and the heartache and loss that is ever present. I'm glad Susan Duerden narrated - I believe it is her presentation that kept my interest over the actual storyline.

    Story
    "It's Eloisa James; of course I liked it"

    I did like this book but it's Eloisa James so of course I liked it. It was a fun read and the characters were interesting. I couldn't give it 5 stars for a couple of reasons. The first one is not the author's fault. Susan Duerden's reading of Sophie's voice was just too breathless- too childish. Secondly, the entire subplot of the trip to Turkey and the "gift" Patrick was being asked to bring just didn't fit and it was resolved so quickly that I had to go back and listen to that part again. Quite a throw-away ending after all the time spent on that part of the story. Also, so many romance stories involve keeping secrets and lack of communication. I guess that makes the conflict but it's quite ubiquitous in this genre. That being said, I liked this and I'm anxious for the third book in this series to be available in audiobook format.

    Story
    "Great first half and then..."

    The first half was great. Romance, humor, personalities that were alive and quirky. Then the main characins marry and it's one misunderstanding on top of each other. I began to roll my eyes and say "wow, really?" Then everything was talked out and resolved (and there were a lot of misunderstandings) in the last scene of the book!
    There were 2 villains but nothing ever happened with them in the story. We didn't get to live out their capture and humiliation. The hero explains to his wife (in the last scene) what the villain's plot was and that they were caught. That's it. It's over. Usually the villains actually have a part in the story. They kidnap someone close to the hero or almost kill them, etc. But in this story they're whole plot to start a war and use the hero to do it is literally wrapped up in a couple sentences in the last scene. So.....
    I LOVE Eloisa James' writing, but this one story seemed like the first half was her but the last half just got emotionally dramatic for no good reason. Yikes! I feel kind of guilty writing my first bad review for this author. I listened to the end though.

    "Okay"
    Any additional comments?

    This is the second book in a series, but it is almost identical to the first book (which I enjoyed). Since this book is so much like the first in the series, I got very bored and just wanted it to be over. I will not read any further in this series. The reader is good but she mispronounces words (like alternate and filet and others). She puts the emphasis on the wrong syllables. I find it distracting and annoying, otherwise I don't have a problem with her.

    "Good but too long"

    This story is good but it felt too long for me. After a while this couple's miscommunication got annoying. Half of the book is a big miss understanding. The end is very satisfying though. The narrator did an average job.

    "Absolutely loved it!"

    This was such a sweet and Romaric read. It held my interest the entire time, and took me through a series of emotions. I liked seeing the intricacies of the relationship between Patrick and Sophie, and how they learned to trust, love and communicate with each other in their marriage. This is my kind of story and I loved it!
