    Story
    "Fabulous Start to the series!"
    Would you listen to Wicked Intentions again? Why?

    Wicked Intentions will be an audiobook I listen to, definitely more than once. It was a fabulous start to the Maiden Lane series. We are introduced to some of the main characters in the following books in the series and they are all very interesting. The love story of Temperance Dews and Lord Caire was very well written. Their story has a balance of mystery, intrigue and the feeling of completeness in finding a compatible match in love. And, of course a steamy, unbridled romance!


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

    I suppose I loved the ending. I like how two complex characters, that have layers of depth to their psychological make-up, background and inter-struggles harmoniously come together to find a measure of healing in each others arms. Both Temperance and Lord Caire complete each other in a profound way as they seem to understand what each person needs in the relationship. Although they would be an unlikely couple by societal measures, at the base of their beings, they are made for one another and fulfill each other's deepest needs.


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

    Ashford MacNab is so talented. She always does a superb job. Both her male and female voices are so well executed and enjoyable to the listener.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes, I loved it! There are parts that make you cringe and others parts that are exuberant and perfect.


    Any additional comments?

    Elizabeth Hoyt is definitely one of my favorite authors of this period. She unveils multi-dimensional and compelling aspects of society as well as the characters impacted by the culture, during this historical era. She's pretty brilliant and always draws you in as a reader/listener.

    Story
    "Murder mystery and earthy sex."

    This is the first book in the Maiden Lane series. It has reasonably good period detail, a romance, and a mystery. I like the entire Maiden Lane series because it deals with more than aristocratic routs and drawing rooms. This is not Austen - no comedy of manners here - so be prepared for the darker side of life and graphic sex scenes.

    "I love it!!!!"

    Elizabeth Hoyt keeps getting better and better. All three, in this series, were great stories. Hard to put down once you get into them. Ashford MacNab did a great job.

    "Sweet Story"

    This was worth the read. It also made me think about doing more with my life. Kind of inspirational even though the characters were fictional I know there are really people out there that give their lives to those less fortunate than themselves. Good read overall.

    "Wrong narrator for me"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I thought narrator’s voice was too soft and weak for the character of the hero. The story was solid. I'd recommend this to a friend.

    "hooked on this series"

    This plot had some interesting twists that kept me listening. The love scenes are very explicit so be prepared for that. I especially liked the fact that the book describes parts of society at that time that historical romance doesn't always go into. For that reason I liked this strong female character and her convictions. Will definitely listen to the next in this series.

    "Dreadful"
    What disappointed you about Wicked Intentions?

    Mostly a smutty book disguised as historical fiction. Really an odd mixture with many unpleasant characters.


    What three words best describe Ashford MacNab’s performance?

    Not embarrassed enough.

    Story
    "Mystery, murder, sex, and a ghost"

    I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book, It has a non-stop story introducing plenty of interesting characters, with lots of mystery, sex, a murderer, and a valiant sword fighting ghost. The two main characters have personal hangups in dealing with feelings of love, and learn from each other. This installment wraps up their story, but leaves many unanswered questions with other characters, and that ghost is really intriguing. Well, worth the listen and I'm on to the next installment.

    Story
    "Historic romance with a hard accent by reader."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Anyone that likes historical romance and a narrarator with a heavy accent will enjoy this audio copy.


    What was most disappointing about Elizabeth Hoyt’s story?

    Very difficult for me to listen to someone with a heavy accent reading to me.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Ashford MacNab’s performances?

    NO cr


    What character would you cut from Wicked Intentions?

    I don't know


    Any additional comments?

    I am very dissapointed that I used one of my credits for this book.

    Story
    "Sexy and rather sweet"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Wicked Intentions to be better than the print version?

    Not really, I have read the print version and very much enjoyed it. The reader was decent but didn't do a lot to enhance the narration. She had a limited voice range and her speech could be a little sluggish at times.


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

    The bedroom scene in which Lord Caire accuses Temperance of using him made me feel a lot of sympathy for a man very isolated and self-deprecating. Poor Caire doesn't see how appealing and emotional he is because he is hiding it under the facade of a sexual predator.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't read it if you aren't willing to get pulled into the series because there are several sub-plots that leave you waiting for more.
