    "Bad reader"
    What disappointed you about The Devil’s Heiress?

    I couldn't get into the story because the reader was boring.


    What could Jo Beverley have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    This is not a problem with the author but the performance of the reader


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He was boring and makes the story hard to follow


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Devil’s Heiress?

    None really


    Any additional comments?

    I would not select a book with this reader again.

    "Continuing Saga"
    What did you love best about The Devil’s Heiress?

    This book is enjoyed most when one has read all the preceding books in the series. It can be enjoyed as a stand alone, however it is much better in the context of the other books.

    "Great story line and great narrator!"

    Bought this book at a sale and had a great time listening to it. The story line was fun and exciting (my first book in this series but after this one I will certainly buy more).
    The narrator is amazing!!!
    Story line has romance, action, plot twists and fun characters.
    Love it !
