I truly enjoyed this book!! Worth a credit, hell yeah! I laughed, cried, commiserated and celebrated along with the characters. I was so enthr..Show More »alled with the story that I can't really tell you anything about the narrator. I consider that to be a good thing because if you reach the end of a story and only know the story then the performance was very well done.
This is a steamy tale with unusual characters facing the ton and finding their way. I found this story living up to it's historical romance classification...plus it's unique in a good way while predictable in others, a really nice mix of expected and unbelievable surprise.
I am not, however, rushing to the next in the series. I have trouble seeing where the timeline meets for the story since what I already know of those characters does not fit with the story description! I was left with a rather uncomfortable feeling when I read it. It does not seem to fit together seamlessly. I actually almost read the lord of pleasure before the mistress of pleasure and even if it's out of order I think knowing what I learned in the latter the better choice would have been to listen to the first (mistress) AFTER the second (lord). But since I have not listened to it yet I can't testify to the validity of that conclusion.
This may have been better than the first book, and the first book Mistress of Pleasure was really good. Great strong characters, great story, witty d..Show More »ialogue, hot and steamy sex, its all here.
At the beginning of the book I did think I was reading the books out of order. However, I finally realized that what was happening with the main characters, Alex and Charlotte was also happening at the same time as what was happening in the first book with Maybelle and Edmond. I know that sounds confusing, but its not really. You will figure it out. You're not reading out of order. Book 1 is Mistress of Pleasure and Book 2 is Lord of Pleasure.
Ahh if all men were required to attend the School of Gallantry, that would be treat. LOL
The narrator did a good job, but again, just as in the first book she pronounced the "ton" as the "tone" which was annoying. Historical Romance readers know what I am talking about. Otherwise she did do a very good job.
