Publisher's Summary

A Marriage of Convenience

Such is the agreement forged between Lady Jessica Stanton and Simon Warland, Earl of Northcote. Jessica needs a husband strong enough to protect her inheritance from her avaricious stepbrother. Simon needs money to restore the family legacy his father squandered. United by necessity, emotional attachment isn’t part of the deal.

An Unexpected Passion

Yet once the reluctant newlyweds are living under the same roof, Simon can’t ignore the startling intellect, gentle strength, and graceful beauty Jessica keeps so carefully hidden from the world. And Jessica is intrigued to discover Simon’s formidable temper masks a kind, noble heart. But when Simon’s true motive for their marriage is revealed, Jessica is devastated by his betrayal. Because, despite her best intentions, she is falling in love with her husband. And love is the last thing either of them wants - though it may be exactly what they need.

    "Wonderful Story"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Silent Revenge to be better than the print version?

    This was a great story. Without spoiling the ending I want to say it ended slightly different than the normal historical romance.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jessica - Her secret passion was unique (or it was to me since I have only recenlty started this genera)


    Which character – as performed by Rosalyn Landor – was your favorite?

    All of them - Rosalyn is a great narrator.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Nothing too extreme - I am sensative to suspensful moments and started getting scared/excited during a critical point. Couple times I wanted to yell at one of the main characters!


    Any additional comments?

    Wish the romance was hotter - I almost missed the 1st love scene...

    "Nice book but not WOW"

    I enjoyed this book. I think what ever Rosalyn Landor narrates I'll enjoy, with her performances she improves the book.
    This is my first book for this author. I liked her style of writing, simple yet a bit sparkLESS.
    I miss the the spark quality that makes your heart ache that I find in Lisa Kleypas's historical romances :( I think this is the problem, that I end up comparing all the historical romances to LK.
    Having said this, it's a solid book with nice story and phenomenal performance.
    Enjoy it :)

    I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!

    "Entertaining"

    Pretty interesting story. He needs money because of his wastrel father and she needs to marry because her step brother wants to put her in an institution to take it all.

    The most interesting part, is that the heroine, Jessica, is deaf. I've never seen a romance novel with that element in it. I would actually have loved to have seen a little more of her backstory about this element of her life, I think it would have enriched the threat of the villain as well.

    As it is, aside from that, it is a pretty standard story. We need each other, we don't know each other, oh! we love each other.

    I liked reading it, the characters were pretty well drawn, the ambiance of the story was well created and I'd be interested in reading more from this author.

    What did you like best about Silent Revenge? What did you like least?

    the plot was good/ that although the hero was a strong figure throughout the book at the end he missed the mark and all that build up of intelligence that was accredited to him he miss major signs in the end of the book


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

    I enjoy Rosalyn, I have since looked up other books that she has read to see if I might be interested in them

    "Not my cup of tea"

    I really disliked the first Laura Landon book I listened to but thought perhaps it was the narration. Thought I'd give her another try with the great Rosalyn Landor and while it was palatable I wouldn't get another one by this author. She tends to use superlatives too often ("he NEVER felt like that" or "no other woman EVER made him feel like this") and focuses on stating the obvious over and over again. I find the author to be very formulaic in her story telling and while this is not uncommon in the genre, this author fails to add witty and engaging dialogue and/or characters that I can really like. This just isn't for me.

    ""You are my wife!" "He doesn't love me...""
    Any additional comments?

    If I hear Simon declaring that she is his wife one more time...that's what was going on in my mind on several occasions in the story. Jessica does not feel loveable, but it takes a while until we hear the reality of her past and why she is so insecure. The storyline did have a unique twist to it, (which I obviously can't reveal) - wish the author would've delved a little deeper into how that affected their interactions as a couple. Also, I've discovered I'm not a fan of the figurative language in love scenes..."soaring to the heights...". I prefer a more literal description - you won't get that here. Nor, am I a fan of gruesome crimes mixing with flowery romance. I get that the villain has to be painted evil, but it is a turn off for me to read about sex crimes. Rosalyn Landor made it enjoyable for a listen despite all the little quirks I mentioned - she has a good range of accents/dialects and her voice is deep enough to pull off male voices well.

    I love Epic Fantasy....have become a Historical Romance fan because I am a sucker for a good Happily Ever After. Good characters are a must

    "Never wanted it to end....WONDERFUL"

    First off narration is excellent....Rosalyn Landor is one of the best.

    This book had me hooked from the first....once Jessica met Simon...I wanted to call in sick for work so I could just listen! Well developed characters and an interesting twist makes this a completely enjoyable romance. While there are love scenes...they are PG-13 so no one should be offended.

    My biggest complaint for this book is that it could have been longer...it just ended too soon!

    It is highly credit worthy...BUT at $9.79 ...just buy it and save a credit....just get it! Its sweet, heartwarming, romantic, touching, ....LOVED IT!!!

    "A Suspenseful HR"

    I really enjoyed this audiobook. Rosalyn Landor just knows how to enhance and transform a historical romance. She was golden as the narrator of this one

    Lady Jessica Stanton had a secret that would ruin her family if the ton found out and she did everything to maintain the secrecy. But her step brother Colin, the Baron of Tanhill, is threatening to expose her secret because he wants her fortune/dowry. In order to protect herself, Jessica looks for someone who wasn't afraid of Colin and could protect her. She proposed marriage to her Simon Westland, Earl of Northcote who was on the verge of ruination. His father squandered his inheritance and Simon was in desperate need for money.
    Jessica figured that her fortune was a good trade for Simon's protection.

    But Simon has a bunch of secrets of his own, and what is Colin willing to do to get his hands on Jessica's inheritance? This one was full of suspense and anticipation.

    This is my first book by Laura London and she wrote a book that was a little different but still full of the snobbery of the ton and the romance that I have come to appreciate about this regency period. I loved Jessica's inner strength and even though she had a disability, she found a way to overcome it. She is a strong heroine. Simon started off as an angry man, but he was good and it overcame his obsession with revenge. Love does overcome all after all.
