Lorelai will never forget the night she rescued the broken dark angel in the woods, a devilishly handsome man who haunts her dreams to this day. Crippled as a child, she devoted herself to healing the poor tortured man. And when he left, he took a piece of her heart with him. Now, after all these years, The Rook has returned. Like a phantom, he sweeps back into her life and avenges those who wronged her. But can she trust a man who's been branded a rebel, a thief, and a killer? And can she trust herself to resist him when he takes her in his arms?

I didn’t think Lisa Kleypas could top Devil in Spring, but she did it. I loved Garrett and Ethan’s character and loved West Ravenal(can’t wait for his story)

Ethan Ransom is a 19th century spy and Garrett is England’s only female physician. The intrigue and romance is perfectly woven into a fun,
edgy story... Mary Jane Wells is perfect..

This book was dark.... really dark. But the way EH writes, I was totally drawn in...
since this was the final book in the series I would have liked to find out what happened with Alf.. and maybe Val. Would have liked to know how Kyle dealt with the surviving members of the Lords of Chaos..

Elizabeth Hoyt does it again.
The Duke of Montgomery is one of most villainous characters, of her last few Maiden Lanes books.
He is a black mailer, kidnapper and possibly a murderer. But Elizabeth Hoyt manages to make "the Duke of Sin" sympathetic and loving. With e help of his very lovely" Housekeeper"
Montgomery battles his demons ( and he has many) and finds all he needs. old and new characters re appear in this book... An A++++ listen.

She discovers that Dirmod was attacked and lost his memory of Ilsa and their marriage. Finding there way back to each other is full of anger, hurt, passion and Lots of humour. I LOVED the childrens characters . Ilsa and her brothers were so fun. A+

Avelina Ramsay despairs that she will never fall in love. Though every lad she meets is entranced by her comeliness, shyness prevents her from speaking with them. Part of what silences her is the fear that beauty is all she has to offer. She longs for something more, for a deeper calling and sense of purpose, for a stronger connection with a lad. Desperate for help, Lina leaves home to stay with Jennie Cameron, her closest childhood friend.

This is my 2nd favorite book in this series. Scandalous Desire still #1.
I loved the characters, they were so developed and flawed. I loved the aristocrat Eve and the common Asa , she was perfect for him. I was a little disturbed by Eve's past, and why she was so afraid, but I loved how Asa helped her come to terms with it.

Another hit Elizabeth.

I have always loved Lynsay Sands books. This one did not disappoint. What started out as revenge turned into a true love story. H & H were well developed and loveable, especially Kyla who spent a good part of the book trying to escape and or trying to prove she wasn't addled. .. . Imo one of the best scenes is Kyla pretending to be crazy and singing very bawdy songs to Galen. Very funny. well worth the credit.

Where does To Marry a Scottish Laird rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Top 3.
Jo is travelling from to England to Scotland to deliver a message from her dead mother to Laird Ross MacKay. Dressed as a boy, Jo is attacked by bandits and is saved by Campbell Sinclair.
Cam and his Clan are long standing allies of the MacKay clan, and offers to escort "the boy" there.
When Cam discovers Jo is really Joan, the mayhem begins.

What was one of the most memorable moments of To Marry a Scottish Laird?

There were so many memorable moments, from Cam discovering Jo's real identity, to meeting Laird Ross McKay to the Beautiful Epilogue.

What about Keiran Elliott’s performance did you like?

LOVED HIM!!!! Every Scottish Romance should be narrated by him. His accent is real!!!
I loved his voice, a real Scotsman

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Masks, Mishaps and Misunderstandings

Any additional comments?

This is book 2 of the English Bride in Scotland series.
Well worth the credit. And you will LOVE Keiran Elliott's narration!!
