The Indiscretion | [Judith Ivory]

Publisher's Summary

Lady Lydia Bedford-Browne's small rebellion becomes the adventure of her life when her coach crashes and leaves her stranded on the treacherous Dartmoor moorlands with the only other passenger: a rugged, disarmingly attractive Texan named Sam Cody. Sam's slow, melodic drawl and dark, hypnotic eyes tempt Lydia in ways she never thought possible. But dare a British lord's daughter loosen her proper English restraints any further?

Foul luck has caused the dashing American millionaire Sam Cody to miss his own wedding to an unforgiving bride...for the second time! Worse still, he's stuck in the middle of nowhere with a straight-laced noble beauty. But there is an unmistakable spark of courage, sensuality, and wild passion beneath Liddy's prim exterior, daring Sam to pursue even further what his heart and his soul now desperately desire - even though both the Texan's and the lady's vastly different worlds will be rocked if they dare surrender to...indiscretion.

Judith Ivory's lush, lyrical romances have won multiple RITA awards and are highly praised by authors, including Amanda Quick.

    "Great performance"

    I have a love/hate relationship with Judith Ivory. On one hand, she can flow words together in a sentence that makes me want to re-read just for the sheer joy of it. On the other, I find myself at some point in each book utterly hating one or more of her characters. There's a fine line between love and hate, I suppose.

    Barbara Rosenblat is marvelous. I love that she creates distinct voices for each of her characters. Her performance of Sam Cody is especially appealing even if she didn't quite capture a Texas drawl.

    This particular recording, however, would have benefitted from a bit of editing as the microphone was just a little too close, and there are some distracting "mouth sounds" that require some effort to mentally tune out.

    "Fantastic narration but terrible sound quality"

    Something wonderful happened with this book; I came to really appreciate Barbara Rosenblat's narration talent. And that's a good thing because after listening to a book she read few years ago that I absolutely hated, I never thought I'd want to listen to her again. So yes, that was great.
    Unfortunately, something awful also happened with this book; the technical aspects of the recording were so poor that I could hear every swallow, lip smack and mouth noise that the narrator made. I find that hard to ignore and I very nearly stopped the book except the quality of the narration was so fine that I overlooked it.
    As for the story, this is not Judith Ivory's best historical romance but it had some good humour, adventure, and unusual activities. I loved the character of Sam but Lydia was hard to like.

    "I could listen to it over and over again!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Indiscretion to be better than the print version?

    I only have the audio edition, I don't have the book in print. I downloaded it to my ipod and have listened to it close to eight times over the past couple of years!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love Lydia Bedford-Browne - she is my hero! She is funny, exciting, incredibly smart and very adventuresome! Sam Cody is her perfect match! He is so laid back and funny. I've never heard of such a humble man.


    What about Barbara Rosenblat’s performance did you like?

    She really defines the characters and the connotation and inflection is great. You never have to guess who's talking!


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

    I liked when Lydia's brother came out of the closet! What a shocker!


    Any additional comments?

    I like how the blend of old world England meets with modern day American's. Usually the romance books have an American woman go to England to catch a Duke, this is a great role reversal!

    "The Indiscretion"

    I found this to be an enchanting and amusing love story with a quizzical twist. Normally the young ladies are so innocent - what a nice surprise to find a lady who is inquisitive about the sexual experience - I enjoyed every moment. The narrator Barbara Rosenblat was also excellent.

    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!

    "Slurping Saliva"

    This book might not have been half bad if one could concentrate long enough to listen to the story, instead all you can hear is the god awful sound of the narrator swirling her saliva around in her mouth for the majority of the book.

    "STUPID"

    THIS BOOK WAS SO NUMBING THAT I COULDN'T POSSIBLY TELL YOU IN THE ALOTED SPACE. I HATE THE THOUGHT THAT I HAD TO GIVE IT EVEN ONE STAR. THE ONLY REASON THAT I KEPT LISTENING IS BECAUSE I THOUGHT IT COULDN'T GET WORSE. THIS AUDIO WAS A WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY.

    "Not my kind of book"

    I bought this because I love Barbara Rosenblat's narrations, especially Elizabeth Peter's Amelia Peabody series, and Lisa Scottolini's legal thrillers. I see now that I really dislike romances, I found this dragged on and on, and was not terribly interesting.
