    I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again

    "ANOTHER CHARMING COMPLEX & COMPELLING LISTEN BY EH"

    Book 2 of The Prince series and it's every bit as good as book 1 - well what else would you expect from the very talented mind of Ms Hoyt - and, although this is a trilogy, each book is a stand-alone book with the only connection being a nursery story about a Prince running through each one.

    If you're like me and love a good historical romance then just press the Add to Cart key now because this has so many thing we love - a likeable strong heroine that's no beauty except in the eyes of her hero, her flawed and mentally tortured Land Steward Harry and, like a moth to a flame, the Lady just can't stay away from him.

    A very emotional roller-coaster of a plot that's funny, sad, tender, passionate, sexy and sweet - yet it's also got cruelty, suspicion, tragedy and bitterness at the same time. Apart from their differences in the social divide dictated by Georgian England, Harry is also being framed for murder and Lady Georgina has a sister and three brothers who are all disapproving and giving her unwanted and unhelpful advice. Despite all the negatives in their lives they desperately try hard to have a loving relationship but holding on to it proves even harder as the villain of the story (there's always one isn't there!) tightens his net.

    Worth a credit? Yes absolutely, EH books usually are, but there is strong verbalisations of the sex scenes - so be warned.

    "Amazing Read"

    If you are interested in Historical fiction with romance then this is the book for you. Very seductive, as well as moving. This is definetly worth a credit. Moira's voice is such that you just want to listen, and it calms your senses. If you want to just sit by the pool and relax, or sit by the fire (depending on which hemisphere your in) then this book is must.

    "Fantastic book!!!! Just Fantastic."

    Oh my, this book was so good I could not stop listening.Anna, the heroine is one of the funniest ever. This has to be one of my favorite books of Elizabeth Hoyt. The first book in this series, Raven Prince was good and totally worth the listen, however this one is just wonderful. if you read/listen to Elizabeth Hoyt books you know about the Fairy Tales, I love the fact that in this book the heroine was the one that told it. What a wonderful character Anna Wren is. One of the best by far.

    The narrator is so good it makes the book even better. I would give this book 10 stars if I could. Worth every credit or dollar. I am on to the 3 book Serpent Prince, I see that it is 22 hours long and wont be able to finish it one day as I did this one, but I hope I want too.

    Thank you Elizabeth Hoyt and Moira Quirk!!!!!

    "So Much Anger So Much Passion"

    If you like sex you'll like this novel. A little too much slang for sexual organs for my taste - a bit crass but I loved the love story - it has real fight in it. You always wonder who the murderer is and you think you know and then you don't - really great swings to the story.

    The writer did not do a great job connecting the male character to the previous book's male lead character - she should have introduced and connected them earlier so we would understand why the heck this couple was important.

    "best of the three"

    As others have said, this is the best of the three books in this series (Raven Prince, Leopard Prince, Serpent Prince). You really don't need to read these in any order, as they don't connect much at all with each other. Something about the personality of this heroine, and the commoner hero, really click. Love everything about it. I always love the stories where females from this time period defy convention and are as independent as possible. This narrator is fabulous, cannot say enough about the great job she does.

    "Do Not Recommend"

    It pains me to say this because I am a fan of Elizabeth Hoyt, but this book was a disappointment. The book before this, Raven Prince, was a delight, but I just couldn't get into this one. The basic story line about the affair between an earl's sister, Georgina, and her land management servant, Harry, had great potential,but it became tangled up with a number of subplots that were either confusing or almost irrelevant to the main story. By about the middle of the book, the pace became cumbersome and only deteriorated after that. I had to fast forward several times just to finish. I cannot recommend this book.

    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!

    "Great author, but the plot was a little too dark f"

    I loved the author's first book, The Raven Prince. But this second book had a downer element that caused me to give it 4 stars instead of 5. In this story, the Lord of the area who also had police powers had the ability to arrest any innocent person he chose, lock them in a cell, and torture them without any local person being able to do anything about it. He had absolute power and was so evil in his treatment of others, that it took away too much from the romance story for me. I'm still glad that I read it, but it's not a favorite. I enjoy this author's writing style and characters. I plan to read her next book.

    "Disappointed"

    I hesitate to write a poor review ... but, nevertheless. After enjoying the Raven Prince and Ms. Quirk's narration, it seemed only natural to follow with the Leopard Prince. Unfortunately, they didn't seem to have much in common. I found this book to be somewhat juvenile and was surprised by Ms. Quirk's narration. It almost sounded like someone reading a fairytale, a bit cartoonish, with a little uninspiring sex thrown in here and there. My impression of the main female character was that she was an uninspiring airhead that wasn't worth building a story around, pretty much the same for the male lead. Still pondering how the two books could have been so different, even in narration. Mrs. B.

    "Unlikeable Lead Characters"
    What would have made The Leopard Prince better?

    A heroine that was less silly and less aggressively after the hero. She got on my nerves. The hero was good but he didn't seem to care for the heroine either, except for the bed sport. The ending at the church I found a bit tacky, too. I really enjoyed the murder mystery, though.


    Has The Leopard Prince turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No. I've read lots of this genre and lots of EH's books, but unlike others, I was disappointed.


    What aspect of Moira Quirk’s performance would you have changed?

    I've listed to Moira Quirk's work before and really enjoy her readings. However, it was difficult on this go around to tell some characters from the others. I wonder if she got bored, too?


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Leopard Prince?

    Definitely would have cut out the last romp.

    "Elizabeth Hoyt May be my new favorite author!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Leopard Prince the most enjoyable?

    The author just seems to know what I want from a romance book. I was interested IMMEDIATELY and loved every minute afterwards. Hoyt is a great romance author. Narrator is exceptional also..Moira puts me in the story.


    What other book might you compare The Leopard Prince to and why?

    The Raven Prince same author (writing style is perfect for my taste) and same wonderful narrator.


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

    Just as good as the last....Moira is quickly becoming my favorite narrator.


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

    It made me tingle!


    Any additional comments?

    This book is one of my favorites. I finished it in a day and a night. It is extremely hot and steamy. Super sexy!
