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.

    "engaging and entertaining"
    Any additional comments?

    This is my first book by Mary Balogh and I must say I loved the push and pulls between the duke and Jane in this book. The two main characters fall in love, though initially both refuse to admit to it. Unlike most other books, here the arguments and strong personalities keeps the story more engaging and therefore the interactions and love scenes more intense. The duke's inability to accept his likes and wants makes him very mercurial in nature. Though a typical historical romance the behavior of the characters keep you guessing all the way to the end and so I loved this book and recommend it fully.

    "EXCELLENT LISTENING"

    I truly enjoyed this book. Rosalyn Landor is an excellent narrator. I liked this book so much I actually downloaded the second one and am, yes going to download the third. If you like good romance and a good story I definitely recommend this series.

    "Slow, ... Is it the end yet?"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A faster paced book, the story repeated over and over in the same book...


    What was most disappointing about Mary Balogh’s story?

    9 hours of repeat, the story was only 2 hours......


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

    She is has one of the best voices for Historical/ Regency romances.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from More than a Mistress?

    9 hours of repeat


    Any additional comments?

    I am not sure I want to attempt any more of her books, her writing style was not for me. However some other readers may love her style of writing. Mine opinion is just that. My opinion

    "Ladies and Gents!"

    Rosalyn Landor could make every story a good story. This romantic and sexy story of Jane and her Duke is a delight to listen to. All those fine people, so pure and of high morales with tip top servants all around is fine and of course there love is fantastic in the end.

    "Quite entertaining"

    I loved the characters in this story. I like it when the female protagonist is strong, yet able to be tender. And the villain is so very hateful that you want to choke him. Jane is brave and Tresham romantic and unwilling to fall in love. Of course there is always the HEA in a romance novel, but getting there was quite entertaining. And having Rosalyn Landor for narration made it even more enjoyable.

    "Another great historical romance series"

    This story was very good. The build up of the romance and the sexual tension made this couple special. It was almost a five star listen. I gave it four because the very end was kind of rushed and unimpressive. I feel like a good epilogue was needed to see how they "lived happily ever after". I'm defenitely listening to book 2. The narrator as always was superb. Rosalyn Landor is simply the historical romance queen.

    "More than a mistress"

    However many times I read this book I never get tired of the story.
    I love the interaction between Jane and the Duke and the silliness of the ton in those times!
    I think to me this is one of my top ten stories
    and can commend Rosalyn Landor's excellent reading, the way she portrays each character
    Is exactly how I imagined their voices to be!
    A very enjoyable read!

    "disappointing narration"

    I'm a big fan of this book, I've read it time & time again & in my head Tresham is urbane, arrogant, and very sexy. horror of horror the narrator has him sounding like an over 50 pompous leche! i haven't plucked up courage for the steamy beautifully written love scenes.........cringing at the thought of it!!!!! if this is the standard of narrator I think I'll be cancelling my membership sharpish
