    "Yes it is erotic but what a good story!"

    This book took me by surprise. The plot was excellent, dialog caused quite a bit of reflection into each character. And the Narrator was wonderful her accents and tones were perfect for each character, especially Lord Caire
    Would like to see her do much more books. I will definatly read book two.

    "Good-but Took forever to finish"

    Looking back, I can usually tell how much I truly enjoyed a book by the length at which it takes me to finish. If i stay up late just to listen a bit more- or can't wait to do laundry or vaccum or any other house hold task just to sneak a listen! This was not one of those books however. I found myself laboring to finish it just so I could move on. While I wanted to know the end..and i wanted to see how things would turn out, I just didn't care at the same time. The characters are only slightly interesting- at best. Plus the narration was only so-so. I won't be re-reading it, nor am I that intrigued to try out any other of Elizabeth Hoyt's books. Sad- because they seem to have such a following too. Just couldn't see what all the hype was about.

    Story
    "Better the second time around"
    If you could sum up Wicked Intentions in three words, what would they be?

    Sexy, riveting, charming


    What other book might you compare Wicked Intentions to and why?

    House of Rohan series by Anne Stuart are similar, the rest of this series.


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

    I have listened to all of the current Maiden Lane books, 4 of them voiced by Ashford. She does a fantastic job. Her voice is probably one of my favorite too listen to. She is calming, doesn't go overboard with her male voices, the voices for each character is distinctive. I would say she does as skillful a job on this one as she does on the rest of the series.

    Would absolutely love to have her come back for the rest of the Maiden Lane series.
    Emma Taylor was bloody awful (yes I listened to that book again, and found I couldn't even come close to finishing the listen) and again I will state I will not be purchasing the next book in if Emma Taylor is narrating it.


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

    First time I listened to it no, it took a few tries to get into the story, but once I started listening it was an almost non-stop listen. The second time, I ended up listening to it almost in one sitting. Had to get some sleep though so I stopped for the night at around 4am. /giggle


    Any additional comments?

    If you like racy sex scenes, without bombs bursting in air and strong characters then I highly recommend this book. Lazarus does takes some getting used to and his affliction is never explained fully but Elizabeth Hoyt does a great job telling a story of damaged people without going into the realm of wimpy or whiny. Her characters generally know what they want and go for it. There isn't a lot of hemming and hawing so to speak, at least it didn't feel that way to me.

    This is an excellent start to a very good series.

    "Good for a book on sale"

    I read the other reviews before buying this book and wish I hadn't. I think they gave me too high of expectations. The book was okay, but nothing special. I wish I could give it 3.5 stars. It was a little boring at times, but overall an okay story. The characters were fairly interesting. If the 2nd book in the series is on sale, I will probably get it too, but I won't waste a credit on it or pay a big price.

    The narration was quite good.

    "A bit dark but a very good story."
    If you could sum up Wicked Intentions in three words, what would they be?

    Different, intense, sexy


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Wicked Intentions?

    Lord Claire stealing into Temperance's house. His ultimate caring for her and the children of the foundling home.






    Which character – as performed by Ashford MacNab – was your favorite?

    I thought Ashford McNab was the star. I loved her narration. Because the story took
    place in St Giles, London, a horrible place, if I had been reading the book, I may not have finished it. For me her voice was so soothing, I was able to truly enjoy it.

    I enjoyed all the characters. In addition to the main characters, her sister, Silence had a little a little story to tell I do like stories that have a lot going on with other characters.


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

    It was too long to listen to in one sitting, but I listened to it on my kindle, I would kick back in my recliner, close my eyes and with my ear phones in my ears at night, and listen to it with Ashford McNabs soothing voice. Very relaxing.


    Any additional comments?

    I like the story so much that I am now listening to Notorious Pleasures, the 2nd in the series.

    "Very good, highly recommend"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Wicked Intentions to be better than the print version?

    I did not read the book but I really enjoyed listening to it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters interact so well together and I love the mystery that is running in the background the whole time while the male and female leads get to know each other.


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

    I really liked this performance, and I will listen for me of him.


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

    Really got into the story and would have finished it all at one time if I could have.


    Any additional comments?

    Recommended to my sister who does not like romance and she liked it a lot.

    "Rather raunchy."
    Any additional comments?

    This novel is a bit more raunchy then romantic. There are multiple scenes throughout the book that are graphically sexual. There is also a bit of mystery in this book with makes a good story. The narrator is very good for this book and others written by Elizabeth Hoyt. Although her voice changes are primarily the same. When I listenened to book 2 of this series I was thinking of the hero from the first book. Perhaps I need to put some time in between each book.

    "Very Good"

    This book was so very interesting. I loved the names of the characters(Temperance, Winter, Silence, etc). The story line was profound and unpredictable. All the characters were interesting, especially Lord Caire. The series promises to be FUN. The loving was awesome. I enjoyed the bi-play of words between the main characters. The suspense of not knowing who is the killer and/or the Ghost, will give those readers who enjoy mysteries a wonderful dilemma to solve.
