    "Historical Romance"
    Would you listen to The Defiant One again? Why?

    Yes, I really like Andrew and his unconventional methods and scientific ways. His girl is feisty too.


    What about David Stifel’s performance did you like?

    As I've mentioned in other reviews, Lucien's voice is how I will always remember him.

    Story
    "So Entertaining! I Laughed Out Loud!!"
    If you could sum up The Defiant One in three words, what would they be?

    Imaginative, sexy and fun!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the entire story. The hero was smart, handsome and capable, but with a very real obstacle to overcome. The heroine was, in her own eyes, less than perfect, but with a huge heart and loved animals. Although neither was interested in a relationship, the author used a very interesting 'motivator' and employed the hero's matchmaking older brother to help the situation along.


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

    I have listened to Mr. Stifel's narration of the first two books in this series. This third book is his best so far!! His performance of the wry, self-assured, aristocratic matchmaking brother, Lucien, is absolutely perfect. He excels at emotionality and pacing a story. I can't wait to listen to the fourth book!!


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

    I wanted to listen in one sitting, yes, but the book was almost 12 hours long, so was not able to.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was a lot of fun! Having already read the entire series, I was very familiar with the characters and loved hearing them performed.

    Story
    "Defiant Until the Very Last"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Most certainly. In fact, I've already loaned out my Kindle copy several times over.


    What other book might you compare The Defiant One to and why?

    The entire De Montforte series is so original that I can't really compare to any others. If I had to compare it, however, I'd say Jennifer Ashley's Mackenzie series would be slightly similar, as it features a family of strong, manly, and completely unforgetable brothers.


    Which character – as performed by David Stifel – was your favorite?

    Lucien, the dark and brooding Duke of Blackheath. That voice alone is worth downloading the entire series. I absolutely melted into a puddle.


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

    I laughed so hard at moments that I had to pause the book. Then I blushed so profusely at other times that I had to stop listening to it in public. It is just beautiful and you feel every emotion right along with the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    I love this entire series, both the books and the Audiobooks and recommend them to everyone!

    Story
    "An Autistic hero with a strong heroine"

    I did enjoy this book and am glad that there are more and more books written about people that are not "perfect" by society standards. I love how the heroine defends and provides strong support for the hero but I guess it wouldn't be too much of a hardship when he is such a heart throb :). At the same time I found the story entertaining I also found it a bit silly. The premise of having an older brother who controlled their every move and ALWAYS having all the pieces to his plans fall right into place was just over stretching it a bit for me. There was more silliness but if I give examples, I would be giving the story away so I will leave it up to anyone still interested in reading the story to discover them for themselves. If you absolutely are looking for something good to read, then you won't go wrong with Laura Kinsale books. A much better way to spend your time my friend.
