Publisher's Summary

A Devilish Duke on a Quest for Pleasure...

Frannie Darling was once a child of London's roughest streets, surrounded by petty thieves, pickpockets, and worse. But though she survived this harsh upbringing to become a woman of incomparable beauty, Frannie wants nothing to do with the men who lust for her, the rogues who frequent the gaming hall where she works. She can take care of herself and feels perfectly safe on her own-safe, that is, until he strides into her world, and once again it becomes a very dangerous place indeed.

To bed her but not wed her. That's what Sterling Mabry, the eighth Duke of Greystone, wants. But Frannie abhors arrogant aristocrats interested only in their own pleasure. So why then does the thought of an illicit tryst with the devilish duke leave her trembling with desire? Her willing body begs for release . . . and a wicked, wonderful surrender.

    I'm a huge fan of Historical Romance and have recently found how enjoyable audio books can be.

    "Great Story but Narrator could had been better"
    Where does Surrender to the Devil rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    2 out of 5


    Would you be willing to try another one of Susan Ericksen’s performances?

    Not sure I'm a fan of Susan Ericksen. Biggest issue was every "s" sounded like "shhh" with a bit of a whistle sound such as Shhh..urrender to the Devil - I even tried to reload the audio but same thing. There were many times when it wasn't clear who was speaking. She was awesome with the voices of the lower class but there wasn't really any clear voice distinctions between the main characters.

    I am a truck driver who listens to books instead of music. If I don't have a book its almost impossible to drive.

    "I was Suprised"

    I'm not usually a historical romance person but got this one on sale and fell in love. I really enjoyed it and has made me wonder what I have been missing by not reading romance novels (I thought they would be all flowery and boring) I am very happy i purchased and had a chance to enjoy this book.

    "A very sweet love story!"
    Would you listen to Surrender to the Devil again? Why?

    Yes. The story was excellent but the narration was fabulous. I could see the characters in my mind as if it was a stage play.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Surrender to the Devil?

    I loved the way Sterling and Franny took care of each other when they were hurt and there were several touching moments with the children.


    What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

    So great....her speech was clear, her characters distinguishable, emotions came through loud and clear....one of the best performances I have ever heard.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    2 days....I had to sleep.


    Any additional comments?

    So worth listening to and I got it on a surprise 4.95 deal, so glad I chose it.

    "OK"

    I don't know why I downloaded all of the books in this series at one time. I usually try the first book of a series to see if I want to continue. But not this time - maybe I had them confused with another series. The books were OK. They even had some good ideas, but the stories never did much with them. Spoiler alert: The female characters are supposed to be strong and intelligent, but in a crisis, they are totally useless - to the point of doing damage to the heroes. I hate when a book goes into stupid woman mode. The heroes don't do much in a fight either. There was one passage about a hanging that I didn't like at all. And I could have done without the extra added for the ending. OK, but nothing more.

    "Excellent Story and Characters"

    I liked the plot of this story especially because it was about the shy often thought of by the English nobility as worthless, Frannie Darling. The story unfolds beautifully and again, the narration by Susan Ericksen is memorable. I found this book because of her narration. I liked the first one in this series and plan to download the third.

    If you enjoy a good plot, believable characters that are entertaining, you'll like this audio book.

    I love audible to listen to my books while commuting in the SF Bay Area. It makes the time go by so fast and keeps me engrossed.

    "Good, But Weakest Book in Series"

    This is book 3 in the Scoundrels series, and it was my least favorite in the series, but still, good. I was not sure if I would like Sterling in this book, as he was a jerk in book 2. Sterling started off pompous in this book as well, but once you understood his issue (he was going blind - not a spoiler), I begin to warm up to him. I did get frustrated that Sterling was so hung up on title and social standing - it took something away for the book. Frannie is great - really too good for Sterling, even thought her social standing was lower. The ending of this book is excellent and the epilogue was wonderful. It really ended the book on a high note. The narrator is excellent. I'm really looking forward to book 4, as the hero Swinder seems great in the prior books!

    Story
    "Frannie was not believable"

    Frannie or Franny however she is spelled is a character outlined in the first two novels as a woman who raped, beaten and while not fearful of men completely and utterly disinterested and dressing drab to not catch attention.

    Lorraine Heath seemed to forget her own story and had this four book series take a turn for the worst in book 3. While I love Frannie as a character, I found it absolutely unbelievable she would end up with who she does because A) he is snobby and would never show interested regardless of lush as was outlined in book 2 and B) she would never cross a room to talk to a man just plain and simple.

    So the motivation behind the characters during the first few chapters is not only not believable but it doesn't match the first two books in the least.

    Thumbs down on this one. Not terrible - you'll like it but if you like a good story and you get annoyed when authors forget the characteristics of their own characters...well then you'll be very annoyed until you get happy 3/4 of the way through because you get drawn in anyway.

    "My first Lorraine Heath."
    If you could sum up Surrender to the Devil in three words, what would they be?

    An interesting diversion.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Easy to follow.


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

    Yes! She is remarkably talented and my favorite narrator. Ms. Erickson's british accent was spot on and smoothly delivered.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not really.
