Can a loving hand applied to the naked rear of a peevish woman sweeten her character? As a Georgian gentleman, Sir Thomas Wiggington expects to be master within his own home; after all, everyone knows that an Englishman's home is his castle. However, when he weds Lady Margaret Beauchamp, it appears that she has other ideas about who should be in charge. Thomas finds that his patience as a gentleman is sorely tried and tested.

Narration- bad, learn to pronounce the words correctly. It’s noticeable when one likes this time period and has heard them correctly for years. I will say he does fine with voice changes and lady voices are ok too. He has lots of potential and I’m sure it’s not an easy job.

No substance to the story, but I was just looking for a quick book from the erotica listings and this filled the bill.

Will read others by this author because sometimes this is what you need. Lol.

Narration—ok, but I wanted to smack him. He pronounced “Rye” through all the other books and “Ree” this time, bout drove me nuts. I know how Fleetwood Mac pronounce it. Lol

Story was good. I’ve noticed I enjoy the back story more than the main character story. Lol

I have found very few times that I wasn’t fond of the lead female. Well KB was on my smack the sh$& outta her list. Boo hoo he didn’t tell you he was a dragon. Give me a break, even Batman didn’t tell everyone everything.

And....I’m freakin sick of Ry and her dragon lover. Get over it. Gah!! Tell me if I have guessed already.

Excellent series!!! Will listen to again in the future. Now....on with the story.

Wow can’t wait for the next book. This one was very good. More stories than just Santos. I liked that. I’m liking that it’s not so zeroed in right now. The story is great and is well worth the credit or money. So much happening and pulling characters from the past. Awesome just awesome.

"Vince" is a member of the Selected Sinners MC, an enforcer, and an administrator of justice. He is the real-life book boyfriend most women dream of. Handsome, tattooed, covered in muscles, and very alpha, he appears to be a dream come true. One thing most of his MC brothers do not realize about him is that he spends his nights reading romance novels, and has since he was a kid. He lives by a set of moral standards most men wouldn't even dream of attempting.

This was a very good read. Loved it. Sweet romance, conflict, reconciliation, hot love scenes. I had to keep reminding myself that it was happening at the same time the others were finding their old ladies. That’s just my flaw. Lol. Im not a fan of different narrators for each book. I’m not a fan of dual narration. When I’m in a series I like to have their voices the same. I get the picture in my mind of the person then they have a freakin’ different voice in the next book , nah, not for me but I made it through.
I hope there is more in audio. Can’t wait.
The synopsis from the “back” of the book totally missed the mark in my opinion. Wish I would have never read that. Great book , credit worthy and a great series. A+

Not what I expected. Still good. Hated the narration. That man couldn’t do a range of voices and then remember who was who. I guess I expected more this was a rewrite from another POV with more of course. Still the end was good but I just was left thinking. That’s it? What the hell. So I guess this was necessary for the series.

After being raised by my asshole police officer father and my subservient mother, I went off to college with a penchant for outlaw alpha males. I knew Dalton Biskette was in the Selected Sinners MC, and a bad boy; but the night he walked into my bar I had no idea just how bad he really was. Covered in tattoos, muscles, and wearing his cut, he exuded masculinity and sex from his every pore. On the first night he made me laugh, he made me uncomfortable, and he made me have sex with him. Well, the last part’s a lie, I wanted it more than he did.

The only man I've ever loved stepped aside and let me go 15 years ago because I wanted to start a family. After moving as far away from him as possible, I now must return home for my mother's funeral. The problem with going home is I'm single, and I'm still deeply in love with Otis. Seeing him and not acting on my feelings would be impossible, so my plan is to slip into town, take care of my deceased mother's affairs, and slip out unnoticed. One drink should settle my nerves....
