Wedding bells celebrating the arranged marriage between the lovely Duchess of Beaumont and her staid, imperturbable duke had scarcely fallen silent when a shocking discovery sent Jemma running from the ducal mansion. For the next nine years she cavorted abroad, creating one delicious scandal after another (if one is to believe the rumors). Elijah, Duke of Beaumont, did believe those rumors. But the handsome duke needs an heir, so he summons his seductive wife home.

Gemma is an idiot and Elijah is irritating. I only listened to this because Leopold's beginning story of collecting his children started in this book. I had to fast forward when Gemma was grating on my nerves. This is the only book of Eloisa James that I felt lacked character. I'll keep listening Eloisa James' books but not this one again.

Even at 15, Jeanne, the privileged daughter of a royalist EmigrE, knew what she liked: Englishman Robert Blake, bastard son of a marquess. Yet his questionable birth rendered him forbidden. Forced to part, they were still young enough to believe in tomorrow. But as time passed, that brief ephemeral flirtation at Haddington Hall faded into memory.

Would you ever listen to anything by Mary Balogh again?

Yes, I read all her books.

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

She is worth listening to. She portrays the characters very well.

Any additional comments?

I usually do not write comments but this time I felt the need to warn others. Usually the hero has the too big ego but this time it was the heroine. I love a strong female character but this one had no honor or respect for others. She is self-centered and beyond liking.

They called him the Demon Earl. They said he could do anything. Son of a rogue and a gypsy, Nicolas Davies was a notorious rake until a shattering betrayal left him alone and embittered in the Welsh countryside. Desperation drives quiet schoolmistress Clare Morgan to ask the Demon Earl to help save her village. Unwilling to involve himself in the problems of others, Nicholas sets an impossible price on his aid-only if Clare will live with him for three months, letting the world think the worst, will he intervene.

Would you listen to Thunder and Roses again? Why?

Yes, because a good romance novelist now-a-days is hard to find. I look forward to listening to Book 2.

RITA Award finalist and Christy Award winner Julie Klassen delivers historical romances brimming with the eloquence and intensity of Jane Austen. In an abandoned gatehouse on an old estate, Mariah Aubrey lives in seclusion. She supports herself by writing novels in secret—at a time when such writing is considered improper and unladylike. Soon the wealthy and ambitious Captain Bryant leases the estate and is intrigued by the beautiful girl in the gatehouse.

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

It was a pleasure to listen to her.

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

When an unexpected inheritance elevates her family to the ranks of the aristocracy, Amelia Hathaway discovers that tending to her younger sisters and wayward brother was easy compared to navigating the intricacies of the ton. Even more challenging: the attraction she feels for the tall, dark, and dangerously handsome Cam Rohan.

I usually only listen to my audio books while at the gym but this one I couldn't stop and finished it in two days. I'm looking forward to book two which I downloaded today.
