Publisher's Summary

The unimpeachable Elenora Villars is the pride of New Orleans. Her magnificent auburn hair is her crowning glory and her benevolence is the talk of the town. Once a nurse to injured Americans in Niagara, Elenora has become famous for her compassionate works. The widow of a Spanish nobleman, Elenora has secured herself a respected place in high society. But she has a secret that could destroy her good name.

Colonel Grant Farrell is the only man who knows what Elenora really is and the secrets she is hiding, but he doesn't care. He is overwhelmed with a passion that can only be sedated by the warm brush of her sensual lips. He is her sworn enemy, a man who holds her future in his hands, a man who has vowed to win her love. Can his insatiable desire overcome her burning hatred?

    Would you try another book from Jennifer Blake and/or Judith West?

    Jennifer Blake - most definitely
    Judith West - NO


    What didn’t you like about Judith West’s performance?

    The dialogue was horrible. Eleanora sounded like a 45 year old smoker (she was probably 18-19) and Grant sounded like Dudley DoRight. Wow! I wish she'd just read the dialogue parts straight if she couldn't do a better job.


    Could you see Notorious Angel being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Would be a great mini-series. The history alone is fascinating.

    Story
    "Heart wrenching, emotional and deep plot"

    Another beautifully written, emotionally charged novel by Jennifer Blake. This is a complex story with an exquisitely written plot, well developed characters, and heart wrenching truth.

    I know that I keep repeating this in my reviews of Jennifer Blake's novels, but I was taken aback after purchasing one based on the description and finding the story I received instead.

    She is a realist, and writes stories about flawed characters who manage to squeeze some kind of happiness in the end. The hero are normally a-holes, who you want to punch in the face. There is always a redeeming and wonderful male in the story who I desperately want the heroine to choose, but alas she does not.

    Basically, the heroine follows her brother to a war campaign that ends up putting her in an impossible situation. The hero, well he just wants her, so he takes her. The rest of the publishers summary happens after the first 3/4 of the book.

    I enjoyed the story for what it was, a compelling and truthful insight into two very complex fictional characters. Life isn't always a fairy tale, and Blake certainly gets that across.

    Worth a credit for me, but if you like a lighter read...skip it.

    Story
    "My Favorite Blake"
    Would you listen to Notorious Angel again? Why?

    Yes, I listened, although the voice for the main male was annoying. It is very difficult to get the manly voice correct with the personality, but I was particularly disappointed in this one. But I love this story and it compelled me to investigate the history behind the story.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Notorious Angel?

    The story of the escape to the Mosquito Coast and the events there are very compelling. The whole story is fascinating and I have read it many times.


    What didn’t you like about Judith West’s performance?

    She missed the main male persona completely. Her main female voice sounded too old.
