Publisher's Summary

A long string of tragic loves haunts Viscount Benedick Francis Alistair Rohan. Cool and cynical, he's weary of life's fickle games and wants a prim and proper wife he can ignore while indulging his sensual appetites.

Lady Melisande Carstairs is nothing less than a tornado storming into Benedick's measured life. Possessed of boundless energy and the soul of a reformer, Melisande always conquers, whether it's saving the souls of soiled doves or seducing the man she's inconveniently fallen for. When she informs Benedick that his brother's newly revived Heavenly Host has graduated from simple carnal debauchery to sadistic violence, he's compelled to investigate, undercover. Under those covers, however, is Melisande herself, playing a dangerous game in the name of justice. And the Heavenly Host has just seen her hand, and more.

    "Love this family."
    What made the experience of listening to Shameless the most enjoyable?

    I enjoy the Rohan family stories. The Rohan's (both husbands/wives/heroine's) are fabulously fun personalities. I did find myself laughing out loud in a few places.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Shameless?

    The tiny gun - too funny.


    Have you listened to any of Susan Ericksen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    She's always pleasant to listen to.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    A devilish affair.


    Any additional comments?

    Not one of the best in the series but definitely a nice escape and fun listen. Looking forward to the next one. Keep them coming Anne.

    "Solid Romance"

    Okay, I didn't notice the "Don Quicks-Oat" mispronunciation. I did notice a fun story.

    Most of the book is completely unbelievable, but I'm fine with suspending belief for 10 hours.

    I have not read any of Rohan series so I can't really compare it to the other books. I did think Shameless was fine as a stand-alone novel.

    I will warn you that the sex scenes are explicit. The heroine is totally sexually repressed and learners the ways of love through the hero. It's pretty much a sexin 101 class, but with the occult. Good times!

    "Second time is a charm"

    I had listened to Susan's narration once and was sorely disappointed with her performance on that book...I am glad to say she did a far better job with this series...it helps that this was a different kind of series based on generations.....I think the whole summoning the devil and all that was taking it to a different turn but it was a strong enjoyable and entertaining series.

    "Strong entry in this series"

    I really like this series. The characters aren't perfect and I prefer them that way. There are some laugh out loud moments, especially with Richmond (the butler?). There are enough teasers throughtout the book to indicate the next book in the series will be about Brandon (Benedick's brother) and Emma - two very flawed and interesting characters. I can't wait for that one.

    "The end of a wonderful series. Re: Susan Ericksen"

    I love Anne Stuart's Rohan books. I didn't like the third book as much as the first two, but this one was very good. (Ruthless and Reckless are two of my favorite audiobooks.)

    I'm responding here to Susan who complained that the narration was unbearable. Susan Ericksen is one of the most well loved and well respected narrators in Audio Books. She is flawless in every book that she reads. And if she doesn't say Don Quixote quite the same as you do, consider that you are from Georgia.

    Ericksen began her auidio career in west Michigan when Brilliance Audio was a start-up company. The amount of work she does to get her characters voice and accents right is amazing. Check out her biography from Audiophile Magazine. She also works hand in hand with BBC productions for their recordings and is renown for her study of accents and ability to do various English accents, depending on the character's location and background.

    She has received so many awards it's hard to count.

    I write this knowing it may not be read. But I listen to so many audiobooks, that I am shocked when someone goes off on one of the absolute finest female Narrators on audible. Only Rosalyn Landors as widely respected.

    "Very entertainig series"

    The end to a good series. This one was as entertaining as the rest, although I liked number three the best. It leaves a few loose ends that I would have liked to have seen closed, and when you read it, you will easily recognize them. I won't spoil it though, by mentioning names. All and all, I'm glad I read the series. It's a good series to read, if you just want to relax with a good book, don't have to think too much, but just listen and enjoy.

    Me? ....... Capable of many moods, and enjoying a vast range of literature. Incapable of uploading a picture and realized none of the Avatars are ......appropriate. That pretty much "tells" it all.

    Predictable, they hate, they love, they hate some more, .............you can guess the rest. Oh yes, with a little "shameless" thrown in.

    "Don Quicks-Oat? Really??"

    If the producer listened to this, the mispronunciation of Don Quixote evidently didn't leap out and slap his ears as it did mine. Glaring errors like that one can distract me for hours from what might otherwise be a fine story.

    In this case, the story was a rather weak addition to the Rohan series. The female protagonist isn't terribly interesting, and the Rohan offspring whose attention she draws is not wicked at all, just a bit crude for her taste. He's a rake of course, but seems to be missing the anti-hero gene that made his father and brother irresistible..

    "Shameless" has merit because it's an Anne Stuart novel, even if not one of her best. The narration, imperfect throughout the series because of the fake English accent, has by Book 4 become downright annoying.
