Since his return from war, the Duke of Ashbury's to-do list has been short and anything but sweet: brooding, glowering, menacing London ne'er-do-wells by night. Now there's a new item on the list. He needs an heir - which means he needs a wife. When Emma Gladstone, a vicar's daughter turned seamstress, appears in his library wearing a wedding gown, he decides on the spot that she'll do.

Would you listen to The Duchess Deal again? Why?

The banter between the H and h was inspired and so funny yet moving... How Ms. Dare does it I have no idea

What about Mary Jane Wells’s performance did you like?

No other performer could have done this book justice. She is marvelous

Most debutantes dream of finding husbands. Lady Pandora Ravenel has different plans. The ambitious young beauty would much rather stay at home and plot out her new board game business than take part in the London Season. But one night at a glittering society ball, she's ensnared in a scandal with a wickedly handsome stranger.

I am keeping this book in my library because it was such a good read

What was one of the most memorable moments of Devil in Spring?

The relationship between H and h was wonderful and had many quirky and hilarious moments. How they met was great

The narrator brought this book to life. Bravo!

This book made me laugh out loud several times but the humor was still relevant to the story line

Any additional comments?

The ending had a satisfying twist and the book was long enough to allow you to sigh with satisfaction as it ended.
Well worth the purchase

Scotland, 1812. He's ferocious and rugged to the bone, an English soldier more at home on the battlefield than in any society drawing room. And when Major Gabriel Forrester learns that he has inherited the massive Scottish Highlands title and estate of a distant relation, the last thing he wants to do is give up the intensity of the battlefield for the too-soft indulgences of noble life. But Gabriel Forrester does not shirk his responsibilities, and when he meets striking, raven-eyed lass Fiona Blackstock, his new circumstances abruptly become more intriguing.

I rarely write a review but I have been looking for a light hearted, quirky audiobook.. This was the one

What was one of the most memorable moments of Hero in the Highlands?

They hit the ground running in their first meeting with the cow stuck in the mud.. Too funny!

What does Flora MacDonald bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Flora is smart but straight forward and brings a fresh outlook to our jaded H

A mysterious artifact zaps Isabelle Rochon to pre-Victorian England, and suddenly her love of historical authenticity collides with the reality that she's a modern-day girl. But when a thief steals her card case, she determines to retrieve the time-traveling artifact. Now she must hunt down the case, navigate the pitfalls of stiff society London, conceal her time-traveling origins, and resist her growing attraction to Lord Montagu, a viscount so hot he curls her shower-loving toes.

It is A.D. 1486. Fresh from his treacherous turning of the tides against Richard III in the Battle of Bosworth, Sir Gaston de Russe's reputation is dark and dirty. Those loyal to Richard hate him and those loyal to Henry Tudor fear him. He is, after all, The Dark One. In order to gain a strong foothold in Yorkshire, Henry sends Gaston to one of the largest fortresses in the north, a massive bastion called Mt. Holyoak Castle.

I enjoy this authors work but this was a special treat. The epic story ( over 20 hrs) always stayed on track without losing focus or my interest. I laughed, sighed and cried which made my husband and kids roll their eyes but it just didn't matter.
This will be one of my go to books on a cold day when I need a cup of something hot and story to warm my heart.

Joan Bennet has endured four Seasons without a single suitor or serious flirtation, let alone a marriage proposal. She's had just about enough of being a respectable wallflower and is giving serious thought to embarking on a life of sin, or at least lascivious adventure like the ones described in a popular scandalous book. When she meets her brother's favorite drinking mate, Viscount Burke, it seems her hopes of adventure might be answered . . .

This was a fun romp of a book. The H & H relationship was fast paced and believable. The storyline was charming and compelling without a nail biting drama following the characters. The narrator was surprisingly good. I found myself chuckling out loud and thoroughly engrossed in the storyline. The steamy love scenes were an excellent way to warm up on a cold winters day
