    Story
    "BEWARE...ONCE YOU START IT'LL BE DIFFICULT TO STOP"

    As usual E.J. has put everything into her Regency fairy tale - it's got passion, humour, romance, likeable characters who get themselves entangled in a sexy touching plot. Her books are usually an automatic download for me and if you listen to this then you will know why.

    Worth a credit? Yes, and I hope to continue enjoying her books with many many more series.

    "Lots of fun"

    I always enjoy a sassy woman. And lots of verbal fourplay is always fun. Would love to see this author convert more stories to Audio

    Story
    "Enjoyed this book very much."

    I enjoyed the simplicity of the book. The story line was simple easy to follow and quite enjoyable. The narration was very good by Susan Duerden and I will be looking for more audio books that she narrates. I still think the narrator is the one who makes or breaks the workings of an author.

    Story
    "Regency Dr. House."

    Piers was like House by Hugh Laurie, cranky and way too smart for his britches. Of course I loved him for that. Nothing like being a smart ass, it is so fun. I love how at first Linnet treats Piers as if he is her gay friend, cracks me up. The ending had me a bit worried how it was going to end, but as in most romances it prevailed and made a fun romance with great characters. This book made my day at work fly by, which is an indicator of how good it was.

    "A great listen"

    I was pleasantly surprised by this listen. the write up did not do it justice.
    It was filled with witty banter from start to finish plus the narration was excellent!
    If you are in the mood for a great, witty romance, look no further.

    "Good Book!"

    I enjoyed this book however I liked A kiss before midnight a little better. The main character (male) is pretty mean. I am looking forward to the next book in the series!!

    "What a great book!"
    Where does When Beauty Tamed the Beast rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    In the top 10, I'd say. It was such a great listen!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I really liked the characters. Even though he was supposed to be gruff, I never disliked him. I found them both quite likable and I rooted for them from the start.


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

    Yes. She's always great. One of my favorite narrators. She does different voices so well and it feels like you're listening to a movie.


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

    The heart often sees more than the eyes ever can...


    Any additional comments?

    This was just a wonderful feel-good book. A great romantic listen. Definitely a keeper!

    Love historical romances; smart, imperfect people who find love when they are not looking for it.

    Any additional comments?

    An old romance with a new new twist at every turn. Great characters to love and to irritate you. Well written dialogue. Steamy love scenes. Modern feel but true to the historical theme. Wonderful narrator. Total enjoyment.

    When Piers finds LInnet half dead of scarlet fever and fights the fight of his life to save her....absolutely wonderful :)
