Publisher's Summary

Christina Bennett had taken London society by storm. The ravishing beauty guarded the secret of her mysterious past until the night Lyon, Marquis of Lyonwood, stole a searching, sensuous kiss. An arrogant nobleman with a pirate's passions, he tasted the wildfire smoldering beneath Christina's cool charm and swore to possess her....

But the feisty and defiant Christina would not be so easily conquered. Mistress of her heart and of her fortune, she resisted Lyon's sensuous caresses. She dared not surrender to his love...for then, she must also forsake her precious secret...and her promised destiny!

    "Cute book"

    I am happy to see Julie Garwood's older books being released in audio form. I have been disappointed in the narrator that has been chosen but she seems to be improving. I hated this narrator in The Secret and still want a do over on that book but she was okay in this book. At least she is not Whispering but it still seems like she is telling it like a bed time story. I see that she is doing the other JG books and I just hope she get better. These Books are cute and funny that I recommend to anyone.

    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

    "IT'S A WORTHY FIVE STAR LISTEN"

    This book is full of GREATS - the narration, the author, the storyline, the dialogue, the characters, their chemistry and, of course, the romance.

    It's all been said before by my fellow reviewers so all that I can add is that it was a joy to listen to this different, action packed tender, sweet, sad, funny, emotional story that stands out from the crowded bookshelves because it did such a good job of mentally time travelling you to a bygone era and feeding you a romance that nourishes your mind as well as your heart.

    Worth a credit? Absolutely YES.

    "Needs a different narrator..."
    What disappointed you about The Lion's Lady?

    Ms Duerden


    What other book might you compare The Lion's Lady to and why?

    Any other Regency Romance that was written by Julie Garwood or Johanna Lindsay


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Her voice seems to read as though 95% of the sentences are either secret and mysterious or may be leading to a question about to be asked. I think she may have read with her eyebrows raised high as her voice was elevated and her imitations of female and male voices are painful and detract from the real story.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Lion's Lady?

    None. This is one of my favorite Jule Garwood stories.


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator made the heroine sound like she was a little girl, not a strong, young women raised by Natives. However, she did get the annoying, sneering voice of the aunt down to perfection.

    Story
    "Narration irksome"

    This plot was so removed from reality that the characters' motivations rang hollow as well. I have been a fan of Garwood for many years and this was far too fabricated even for a romance. I like a historical romance to include at least some historical credibility. Jedediah Smith and about a handful of traders entered the Black Hills in 1823 and the draw of gold and contact with wagon train traffic did not take place for many years later... Although the narrator had clear diction, she shouldn't have even tried to cover all of the voices. I find that women trying to imitate men can make a hero sound way too boorish, and in this book the heroine sounded like a 10 year old child; when she was a baby she sounded like nails on chalkboard. Most irksome was the inflection the narrator employed for about four out of every five non-dialogue sentences. This resembled text to text-to-speech, with sentences rising in the same arc and ending on the same note, again...and again...

    "Interesting story, but the narration?"

    I am intrigued by the story, wanting to know what will happen, but I can't bear the narration, and will have to find a written version to find out what happens. I am amazed to read so many reviews from people who loved the narration. My dislike is not of the narrators acting skill, but of the intonation and quality of her voice, which I find very peculiar, grating, and distracting.

    I have listened to other Julie Garwood books narrated by Susan Duerden, and in the past I was able to get absorbed enough in the stories to forget my dislike of the narration. But in this book, there is so much of the harsh, angry male voices that I feel so irritated by, that I just cannot continue listening, and will be returning the book. Even Christina's voice is unpleasant to me.

    I didn't want to rate the story, since I haven't given it a chance, but I could not proceed with the review until I did, so I gave it three stars.

    "Wonderful story & narration"

    Loved this book, The characters were such interesting individuals. The slow revelation of the heroine's story, interwoven with the love story worked beautifully.
