Publisher's Summary

As soon they are released, Amanda Quick’s romances shoot to the top of best seller lists. With over 22 million copies of her books in print, she is one of today’s hottest authors. Set in Regency-era England, Mischief offers a sparkling mixture of wit and intrigue that has become Quick’s trademark.

Beautiful, headstrong Imogen Waterstone has recruited the darkly infamous Earl of Colchester to help her seek revenge for the murder of her best friend. As they set a trap for the villain, Imogen and Colchester fearlessly encounter the threats and dangers that come their way. But they are both unprepared for the dizzying passion sparked by their partnership. Amanda Quick’s light, breezy style captures the sophisticated nuances of the 19th century British social world that surrounds these two unconventional allies. Filled with spirited dialogue delivered by the incomparable talent of narrator Barbara Rosenblat, Mischief is a thoroughly delightful adventure.

    "One of my favorites"

    I enjoyed this book of the author's one word title romances better than any of the others. The female protagonist is neither whiny nor stridently bossy. Nor is she stupid. The story also seems to hang together better, more plot driven than characters leaping this way and that to fit a trope.

    And, of course, I love Barbara Rosenblat as a narrator. Characters are given distinct voices; she can nuance humor (which seems to be a rare talent in voice people), and her characters sound like people instead of 'characters'. My one, very small, gripe is that she couldn't decide how the main character's name should be pronounced so it came out differently in different parts of the book. At first I thought it might be the characters whose accents, but alas, no.

    If you enjoy this sort of mind candy, something that doesn't require your full attention and characters who are probably not going to make you either thump your head against a wall or want to shake them for their stupidity/rudeness/inconsistency, then I suggest this book.

    I've listened to it twice, during long car trips, and will probably leave it on my iPod for another one in a year or so.

    "solid story"

    i love amanda quick - old amanda quick and this is still a solid listen but i think its the same narrator that did a bunch of her books and she just feels too old. i wish she had a sassier younger reader. the story is so solid though - that you get over any problems with the narrator.

    "Stellar Performance"

    This is one of Amanda Quick's best and handled superbly by Barbara Rosenblat. Charming, humorous and entirely enhanced by the narration.

    If you're a fan of Regency romance, this is decidedly worth a listen.

    "This is a comedy not a historical Romance"

    The narration doesn't help and already bad story. It is a poorly done comic interpretation of historic romance. I really couldn't even bring myself to laugh. I only cringed. I confess that I listen to almost the whole thing trying to find some redeeming factor. I never found it. Don't waste your credits.

    "Typical Amanda Quick book."

    I have enjoyed Amanda Quick for some time now. I usually like her older work better and this book is one of her better attempts. If you have ever read Amanda Quick you know most of her books are similar to each other. This book has quirky characters, romance, some mystery, and of course a scandal. This is one of those books you read when you don't want anything too serious. Narrator isn't my favorite but she is better than a lot who try for Regency English accent.

    Vince Flynn is my favorite author. I enjoy CIA or FBI thrillers, and sometimes light reading like Judith McNaught or Cathrine Coulter. Personal information, I became a grandma last year and love it!

    "The story was good, the narration was terrible."

    Amanda Quick delivers another entertaining story full of humor,romance, and suspense. The narration took away from this story, the worst I have heard in any audible book.

    "Not my cup of tea..."
    What disappointed you about Mischief?

    The plot was utterly ridiculous with some smut thrown in for good measure. I thought this might be a murder mystery/romance kind of like Tasha Alexander's Lady Emily series. This book falls seriously short. Imogen assumes she knows who killed her friend, and proceeds with a harebrained plan to ruin him. I found it hard to believe that Imogen was such an incredible scholar when she was constantly making stupid decisions and assumptions. Also, why did Amanda Quick need to make up an ancient civilization? This time period was the birth of archaeology- surely she could have modeled that part of the plot after a real society? Britain was obsessed with Egypt at this point in history! Maybe she was too lazy to do the research...


    Has Mischief turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, but it has turned me off of Amanda Quick...


    What three words best describe Barbara Rosenblat’s voice?

    British Kirstie Alley


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

    All of the sex scenes. They were so poorly written that I laughed through them. Actually, I thought this book could have been 100-150 pages shorter.


    Any additional comments?

    I wouldn't waste a credit. There are better regency romances out there.
