Ivan Everley, 13th baron of Rothvale, would admit he's the last person on Earth who should have custody over a priceless collection of art. British law affords him the title of lord, but underneath all the trappings he's just a regular guy, despite being a world champion in archery, and certain...proclivities of a private nature. But Ivan's public celebrity is merely a sham - a carefully guarded secret borne out of the pain of betrayal. Even his cousin, Ethan Blackstone, doesn't know the truth behind the man he considers a brother.
Lord Rothvale has a plethora of problems piled up to his aristocratic eyeballs, but that doesn't stop him from complicating his world further when a beautiful art conservationist shows up to appraise his inherited collection of paintings. Once Ivan gets a taste of Gabrielle Hargreave, mistaken identity or not, he can't think of anything but how good the green-eyed beauty felt in his arms.
The chase is on, and Ivan's dominant side isn't taking no for an answer - yet Gabrielle might just teach our discontented lord a thing or two about life and about himself and help them both discover the undeniable truth in what it means to find something genuinely priceless.

A Voracious Reader
I read the book last September, so listening to the audiobook refreshed my memory in preparation for the release of The Lord.
This is a very short story - only 4 hours and 57 minutes - so it seems rather rushed. Maybe more in this format as opposed to reading it. My main issue was with the narration. Neither narrator - Joshua Story or Harper Jeanne Wilson - offered much skill. Both were rather uninspired in their performances and I noticed several mispronunciations offered by Mr. Story. They both came across as robotic readers rather than artists performing the story. Too bad, really.
No Im going to read it - I have listened & read all the Blackstone series and rank them as the best however Joshua Story voice misses the mark as Ivan - his voice doesn't hold the strength and aristocratic (my word) tone. Please change him for the next one!
Gabby is great and Ivan should be fantastic (apart from his voice Grrrr )
Seriously I wanted to rip my ears off listening to the "god awful" voice of Joshua - Im sorry just poorly cast. Harper's rendition was good just a little soft some times.
Love the story and have been waiting a long time - great dialogue and witty banter between the two
No more Joshua Story! No more Joshua Story! No more Joshua Story! No more Joshua Story! What do we want -No more Joshua Story! when do we want it NOW and if this is a trilogy and he is still killing us with that god awful part south African part Ozzie drivel Im heading to ITunes
Romantic, hot, beautiful
As always another great book from the Blackstone series, Ivan is Ethan Blackstones cousin and this short but hot story is about the romance that blossoms between Ivan and Gabriel,narrated by Joshua Story and Harper Jean Wilson who both did a terrific job of giving these two characters a personality and a voice I cannot wait for the next installment in this series.
the narrators were wonderful...I love a British accent. friend and cousin of Ethan and Brynn Blackstone meet, misunderstand, meet, fight, meet and finally connection. Ivan and Gabrielle both have something in their past, just like Ethan and Brynn that they must over come...but what is it? Where's next two books of the series and why aren't they in Audio?
Frustrating! there is another Blackstone book and audio coming out..please do the rest of this series too! please!
