Publisher's Summary

In this captivating novel, Mary Balogh, the premier writer of Regency romance, invites you into a world of scandal and seduction, of glittering high society and intrigue, as an arrogant duke does the unthinkable - he falls in love with his mistress.

She raced onto the green, desperate to stop a duel. In the mêlée, Jocelyn Dudley, Duke of Tresham, was shot. To his astonishment, Tresham found himself hiring the servant as his nurse. But Jane Ingleby was far too bold for her own good. Her blue eyes were the sort a man could drown in - were it not for her impudence. She questioned his every move, breached his secrets, touched his soul. When he offered to set her up in his London town house, love was the last thing on his mind.

Jane tried to pretend it was strictly business, an arrangement she was forced to accept in order to conceal a dangerous secret. Surely there was nothing more perilous than being the lover of such a man. Yet as she got past his devilish façade and saw the noble heart within, she knew the greatest jeopardy of all, a passion that drove her to risk everything on one perfect month with the improper gentleman who thought love was for fools.

    "A Duke Meets His Match"

    Of course, I love this narrator and she does an excellent job with the voices on this one. The relationship between the accused murderer, Jane, and Jocelyn, the Duke (isn't that a girl's name??) is really well written and acted. The characters came alive for me and I rooted for them both. They were two strong willed people who were meant to be together and that was apparent from the start and their strengths and weakness complemented each other. It was an enjoyable story.

    Was not what I expected and the narrator's voice made it hard to keep my attention.

    "Great light read"

    Enjoyed the variety of the story kept me entertained.
    Didn't like extended love, hate scenes towards the end.
    scoring overall, enjoyable, didn't want to put it down.
    The story teller was exceptional, well read.
    Story Repetitive in places, annoyed when people do stupid things repeatedly, guts of story a bit overly dramatic really

    "Different Than I Usually Read, but Very Good"
    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed this book even though I'm not really into romance novels. It helped that it was written in a different era. So if you like romance novels set in historical times, you'll enjoy this. Well written.

    Story
    "meh"
    Would you try another book from Mary Balogh and/or Rosalyn Landor?

    I might try the author again but not the narrator


    What did you like best about this story?

    It's a typical corn ball romance


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She made the hero sound like a dowdy old English person. I've heard female narrators do a very convincing male voice, but this woman was so incredibly distracting to listen to. I picture an old wrinkly English man as the hero now. Thanks.


    Did More than a Mistress inspire you to do anything?

    Yeah, puke.

    Where does More than a Mistress rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I would say I would rack this at 4, it does get dry in some parts but then again it is a page turner/

    Story
    "Pleasantly Surprised"

    I honestly had no expectations for this book. I had only ever read one Mary Balogh book and had never listened to one.
    Rosalyn did a fair job; better than many but not as good as quite a few.
    This book had a solid plot, some of which I saw coming long before it occurred and quite a bit more that surprised me but fit right in where and when needed. I will definitely read the next book in this series. I laughed quite a bit. The sarcasm that the hero expelled was the surprise and I loved every bit of it.

    "Great Love Story"
    What did you love best about More than a Mistress?

    I liked that although it was a typical love story it wasn't 100% predictable.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked that the main female character did not cower despite how intimidating the main male was.


    Which character – as performed by Rosalyn Landor – was your favorite?

    The Duke of Tresham


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

    It made me laugh a couple of times unexpectedly.


    Any additional comments?

    The intimate scenes involving the mistress are not extremely explicit but the subject matter is not boring or timid either.

    Story
    "Bland, Predictable and Tedious"

    There is a certain predictability to romance novels, I understand it expect and even quite enjoy it as a fan of the genre. But this book is not even moderately interesting. . Even if the narrator was fabulous (and that was not the case) it wouldn't have saved this annoying story. The accent was way overblown and I never want to have to imagine a quizzing glass as the most interesting part of a story.

    "What a great story"

    From first paragraph to last this was a fun story to listen to. Ms Landor is one of the best narrators of this kind of novel, and Mary Balogh always provides an excellent read.
