Publisher's Summary

The Surprise Of Her Life

.

Miss Sarah Hamilton, a proper Philadelphian, finds London society altogether shocking. How can it be that she has awakened from her innocent slumber to find herself in bed next to a handsome - and exceedingly naked - man? The laughing onlookers standing in the doorway are no help whatsoever and surely this amorous lunatic cannot be a duke, as he claims.

She is compromised - though she most certainly will not marry him!

The Sweetest Moment Of His

James, the Duke of Alford, is enchanted by his unexpected bedmate - and not at all afraid of her pink-cheeked fury. True, the circumstances and place of their meeting are most unusual, but the spirited American who's pummeling him with a pillow is an incomparable beauty. If Sarah will only listen to his perfectly reasonable explanation, James is sure that he can capture her heart. . .forever.

    Story
    "charming romance"

    Storyline was very simple. The villain was clearly stated at the beginning so there was no guessing as to who was behind all the attempts at the hero's life. Two things that did not work well against this book were that 1) the heroine kept resisting marriage to the hero because she thought he was a rake. At some point I was ready to fast forward listen to the story and be done with it if I heard, "BUT HE IS A RAKE" one more time. Finally about an hour away from the ending she got her answer to that question and boy was that a relief. The other negative point about this book was that 2) both villains had homosexual tendencies and had no issues with rape, etc. Now I am not gay nor do I have tendencies for exploring, but I am insulted on the behalf of the gay community. Not well done. This story also lacked the clever writing and witty one liners Sally Mackenzie is known for. It had promise but did not deliver, but I still enjoyed reading it. The duke seemed so genuinely bested and the almost sex scenes were hot without it involving much more than a kiss. The book is on sale now but even if it was not, I still found it entertaining enough not to ask for a refund.

    Story
    "tears and giggles abound!"

    I really enjoyed this story. Surprisingly enough I think I will ignore the other not so perfect reviews and keep going with the series. I feel that I can trust Sally Mackenzie to deliver an enjoyable story with thrillingly fun characters... I can only hope that they will have narrators as good as Abby Craden who did a great job!

    Story
    "Boring couldn't finish it."

    This story was quite boring. So disappointing, because I wasted a credit on it. The heroine was just way to naive for me. I don't mind inexperienced but this was just to much, and the story was just to boring for my taste. The narrator made her seem too whinny and as if she was going to cry at any moment most of the time. She did do a good job on the Dukes voice so I give her extra stars for that. Sorry but not credit worthy or dollar worthy. Find something better to listen too.
