Widowed Anna Wren is having a wretched day. After an arrogant man on horseback nearly crushes her, she arrives home to learn that she is in dire financial straits. The Earl of Swartingham is in a quandary. Having frightened off two secretaries, Edward de Raaf needs someone who can withstand his bad temper and boorish behavior. When Anna becomes the earl's secretary, it would seem that both their problems are solved. But when she discovers he plans to visit the most notorious brothel in London, she sees red-and decides to assuage her desires....

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

yes. the story is well told and narrated very entertainingly. It has just the right mixture of suspense and romance. This is certainly not my last book by the author...or the narrator!

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Raven Prince?

not sure if there was a most memorable moment, but I did enjoy the fact that 2 stories were told simultaniously - the Raven Prince and the actual story about Anna Wren and Lord Swartingham. Although it was confusing at the beginning, I liked the touch it gave the story throughout the book.

Which scene was your favorite?

to be honest...I am not finished with the book yet...but I liked the scene in the library very much.

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

again, the library scene, as this is the first time, Lord Swartingham seems to understand that Anna wants only him.

Any additional comments?

For me the narrator is the highlight of the story. Personally I used to prefer contemporary stories told by American narrators, but Moira Quirk’s performance has proven me wrong. She did wonderful job, differentiating the different characters by giving them different voices and accents. Very well done!
