Love and jealousy abound in this playful romance, set during the British Regency. Everyone in the ton knew that Lord Hubert Challenge had married country mouse Mary Tyre for her dowry, but no one had yet guessed that Mary had actually fallen in love with her husband! And she was willing to try anything - sumptuous clothes, a saucy manner, even flirting with another man - to get her handsome husband's attention…until she learned that two could play at that particular game.

I have liked the other stories in the series, but I did not find the characters likable enough to care about in this one.

Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

What did you love best about The Hunger Games?

The main character Katniss is so engaging. Her conflict, motivations, and emotions are 'real' in this futuristic world.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Clearly Katniss was my absolutely favorite, but I also love Peeta (like any other that has read and listened to the entire series) Katniss is powerful and strong, but also vulnerable and soft at the same time. Peeta is kind and true to his heart. I also loved Ru for her gentleness.

Which scene was your favorite?

When Katniss and Peeta are in the cave together. I will not say anymore, I do not want to spoil anything.

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

This is a one sitting book. I was obsessed. Beware you may be lacking sleep for a few days.

Any additional comments?

I have listen to the Hunger Game Series so many times I have lost count. Rehashing my favorite parts many times.
