Rendezvous | [Amanda Quick]

Rendezvous

Augusta Ballinger was quite sure that it was all a dreadful mistake. The chillingly pompous and dangerously disturbing Earl of Graystone could not possibly wish to marry her. Why, it was rumored that his chosen bride must be a veritable model of virtue. And everyone knew that Augusta, as the last of the wild, reckless Northumberland Ballingers, was a woman who could not be bothered by society's rules.

Publisher's Summary

Augusta Ballinger was quite sure that it was all a dreadful mistake. The chillingly pompous and dangerously disturbing Earl of Graystone could not possibly wish to marry her. Why, it was rumored that his chosen bride must be a veritable model of virtue. And everyone knew that Augusta, as the last of the wild, reckless Northumberland Ballingers, was a woman who could not be bothered by society's rules.

That was why the spirited beauty had planned a midnight encounter to warn the earl off, to convince him that she would make him a very poor wife indeed. But when she crawled in through his darkened study window, Augusta only succeeded in strengthening Harry's resolve: to kiss the laughter from those honeyed lips and teach this maddening miss to behave! How could he possibly know that it was he who was in for a lesson...as his brazen fiancée set out to win his heart - and an old and clever enemy stepped in to threaten their love, their honor, and their very lives?

    "Story Great...NARRATED AWFUL"

    The story is great but the narrators voice is AWFUL.....The accent is nasally and when she deepens her voice to sound like a man she sounds like a evil rapest or something from a horror movie...not even sure how to explain how awful it is... was not a good listen at all. I didn't listen past the first part of the book. Don't waste your money just buy the book and read it yourself....

    "Fantastic."

    Very good story. I will be listening to this one again. Historical romance with some action and the narration is fantastic. I really enjoy Anne Flosnik's narration. Some people give her negative feed back but I think her narration brings life to the story, she catches the mood and sex of the characters. Every Amanda Quick novel I have listened to has been great.

    "Rendezvous"

    You can't ask for a better entertaining author like Amanda Quick and an expert talented reader like Anne Flosnik to bring reading at it very best. Loved the book

    "A little frustrating"

    I was a little frustrated with Harry's penchant for sex when angry and the female lead's willingness to be called "lacking" in intellect. His coldness was akin to a cold shower and his controlling behavior wasn't adequately compensated by his emotional epiphany at the story's end. There was very little catharsis. I think the female protagonist should have climbed out the window ONE MORE TIME....and KEPT Going!

    "Wonderful story, shame about the narrator"

    This is one of my favorite Amanda Quick novels, great story! But I definitely agree with the previous reviewer, the narrator's attempt at a masculine voice is awful. Very uncomfortable and I found myself dreading every time a male character had a line! I love Amanda Quick's novels, but unfortunately nearly all of her audible books are read by this particular narrator and I refuse to listen to another ghastly attempt at a male voice. Surely there are other english narrators - please Ms. Quick, expand your selection of narrators.

    "Romance in old English"

    All the Amanda quick books are compiling and filled with romance, sometimes I am never sure if it is the narrator (Anne Flosnik) that makes it for me or not she is awesome. I often find my self listing more then once to each book and each time it seems like the first time. The writing is always done in a way that I understand even if I have never heard the old English word before I know what she is talking about. This book is just as impacting as all the others, I did not like the earl at first felt him a little to hard headed but then the story came around so that my heart went to him as well.
