If you've read or listened to any of S.E.'s books before then you know what you're going to get - a passion filled story mixed with great characters, ..Show More »torturous emotion filled encounters and some 'hot' spots all read by the very talented Ms Flosnik.
It's hard to pick a favorite book from her but this could be it because you can really empathise with both main characters dilemmas as they struggle with their building emotions for each other and the devastating results that will ensue.
(Spoiler Alert!!) However, just a short grievance, and I'm no author, but it needed another final chapter or an epilogue as the ending was so abrupt it left me speechless (well alright not quite) but there was no wedding, no honeymoon or reuniting with the servants back at his home, no baby to complete the final terms of his Father's will ...... and the scenes running through my head - just a proposal and then that's it.
Worth a credit? Historical romance at it's best, despite the abrupt ending, so that would be a YES. This could be a stand alone book but why miss out on a great series.
Typical enjoyable SE listen - not your usual Rake/Virgin type romances - but this time it's about an Earl who is an ex government spy but who is now a..Show More » self employed spy and has found his prey - a lowly member of staff at the famous Tantalus Club but he gets more than he bargained for.
Unfortunately (but fortunately for them I guess) the pair hit it off immediately, seemed to go to bed together from almost the start and it was their first meeting - alright they each had their motives but this left a big gap for the listener to enjoy and savour the romantic and emotional build-up towards love and, hopefully, all the sexual chemistry which is involved. They have their sexual encounters but not too explicit, the plot seemed to overwhelm and drown the couple's relationship. However, thumbs up for the book cover!!!
Worth a credit? I have listened to them all and she is an author I like so I guess, for me, it would be a YES but for someone new to the series/author then I would have to say NO keep your credit because she's written far better books. This could be a stand alone listen.
