    "As Good The Second Time As The First!"

    I read The Wicked One a year or so ago, and just secured a copy of the audio book of the same. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience- it feels a little like 'story time' when you have an audiobook. The voices that you created in your own mind while reading- are now created for you by someone else, and maintained timelessly..as the story unfolds, the voices of Blackheath, Eva, and the rest of the DeMontefortes of the add to the richness of the story experience.

    Lucien fears that he has little time left on this Earth and despite warnings from others, he rushes to fulfill his mission in life- to see his siblings safely and happily married to partners that HE feels will make their lives happy and complete. After all, he is the mighty Fifth Duke of Blackheath and HIS judgement has never been wrong. Well he goes too far with his younger sister's life and earns the wrath of his entire family. And he finds his life is in the crosshairs of his siblings, as the brothers and the sisters-in-law arrange for Lucien's comeuppance.

    The narrator does his best job yet with the series! I thoroughly enjoyed his performance.

    Danelle Harmon's series about the DeMonteforte family is one that hooks you and draws you into their family story line, as you get to know the brothers and the youngest sister- and their stories. Their story line richly warms up again with this book about the eldest sibling and his aversion to love. The DeMontefortes still have one more sibling- so there's hope that their story will continue!

    If not- I will just read it again!

    "Historical romance at its finest."

    Lucien's voice.

    Lucien - I love a dark and brooding character.

    The voice he gave Lucien.

    No extreme reactions, just a great historical romance.

    Story
    "Terrific End to the Series!"
    What did you love best about The Wicked One?

    I love how Lucien got 'his comeuppance.' It was as though Love itself was sick of his bold maneuvers and relentless control of his siblings. In the end, he got a much truer lesson than anything his siblings could have planned for him.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Wicked One?

    Hard question, as there were several of them. One was when Lucien's rescue of his wife was greatly hampered by his injury and subsequent inability to make it back home to get help.


    Which character – as performed by David Stifel – was your favorite?

    Lucien, of course!! Instead of falling into the all too easy trap of reading Lucien in a monotone 'uninterested British' voice, Mr. Stifel gave him the full range that the dialogue called for: crisp enunciation for irritation, almost a lighthearted lilt for playfulness, full commanding voice for anger, among others. Lucien is quite a colorful character, and Mr. Stifel performed him as the book described, "with a voice as smooth as cognac."


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but real-world needs kept interrupting me!


    Any additional comments?

    Mr. Stifel's French accent isn't as good as his British one. Still, it was only in one small scene and did not detract from the story.

    Retired evidently sounds better than disabled.. It's a knee thing. Bone on bone, baby. Not a good candidate for surgery (health issues)..

    "The Wicked One? wrrongly titled, imo."
    Where does The Wicked One rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was a great way to end the series. (I hope it is done). Somehow t got under the misconception that the patriarch of the family was was sick and dying. Luckily I was wrong
    And of course, he got his woman. It s funny how wanton and wild the woman is. It is a bit tedious with the scenes are with the shenanigans that are pulled on each other.











    .














    I










    Who was your favorite character and why?

    No one specifically.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene where the lady lead to fight the bad guys who were there trying to rob t:hem.





    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Clueless.


    Any additional comments?

    The series was entertaining, but am glad it is finished. (I hope).
