Publisher's Summary

Oliver Sharpe, the Marquess of Stoneville, has been London's most notorious rake for years. Fed up with his behavior, his grandmother threatens to disinherit him if he doesn't tame his wild ways and wed within the year. Outraged, Oliver decides to hire a woman from a brothel to pose as his fiancée to prove that he can't be forced into marriage.

When he meets Maria Butterfield, a beautiful American woman who is searching for her fiancé in the most unlikely of places, he knows she's perfect for his ruse. But before long, Oliver finds himself willing to risk anything to make Maria his - even his heart, and the dark secret he hides inside it.

    "Lame, Formulaic Storyline"

    The storyline is just so formulaic and boring. A very weak story created as an excuse to get from one seduction/sex scene to another. I'm all for light entertainment and I wasn't expecting some deep story - but this is just bad.

    "Okay plot, terrible narrator"

    Terrible audio quality on this recording - sounded like someone was reading in a closet. Narrator was terrible! Wrong English accent for the aristocracy - and little or no differentiation in character voices. I had a long drive with only this book available to listen and decided silence was better.

    "Good story"

    It was a good story, but it was wierd to listen to the guy's voice when he was trying to do the female character. Specially during certain scenes when they were kissing, etc.

    Story
    "Just okay"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The story was predictable and could have been much better with a different narrator. The reading made the main male character seem like an eighteen year old speaking nasally, and overly arrogant with bratty tones, rather than the mid 30 year old handsome and rakish, yet desirable man intended.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Not sure but definitely not the same narrator


    What didn’t you like about James Clamp’s performance?

    Very little distinction between characters and he made them all seem like they were such whining little kids. Even though I made myself listen rather than waste the credit I found myself so irritated at his performance!


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Once you've listened to great narrators - who can really stir your soul with in depth imaginations and recreations- which great writers provide the means for. ... You instantly start searching for reviews that touch on these points. I guess I overlooked those for this one.

    Would you listen to The Truth about Lord Stoneville again? Why?

    I enjoyed this book just as I have all the books of this series.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Truth about Lord Stoneville?

    I loved the moment when Maria told Nathan off.


    What does James Clamp bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love his different tones for different characters


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

    When Oliver realized he loved Maria
