When Alexander Westcott becomes the new Earl of Riverdale, he inherits a title he never wanted and a failing country estate he can't afford. But he fully intends to do everything in his power to undo years of neglect and give the people who depend on him a better life.... A recluse for more than 20 years, Wren Heyden wants one thing out of life: marriage. With her vast fortune, she sets her sights on buying a husband. But when she makes the desperate and oh-so-dashing earl a startlingly unexpected proposal, Alex will agree only to a proper courtship.

When Olivia Bevelstoke is told that her new neighbor may have killed his fiancée, she doesn't believe it for a second, but, still, how can she help spying on him, just to be sure? So she stakes out a spot near her bedroom window, cleverly concealed by curtains, watches, and waits . . . and discovers a most intriguing man, who is definitely up to something. Sir Harry Valentine works for the boring branch of the War Office, translating documents vital to national security.

This is still my favorite JQ novel! It's romantic and witty. Love the characters and her writing style is so easy to follow.

Peaches Alexander is thrilled to receive an unexpected invitation to a weekend party given by the handsome, eligible Duke of Kenneworth. The only problem: Stephen de Piaget, a stuffy medieval studies scholar who seems determined to get in the way. Peaches has absolutely no desire to get involved with Stephen, until a quirk of fate sends her hurtling through time…. Stephen de Piaget has been leading a double life: respectable professor by day, knight-in-training during holidays and summer terms.

Where does All for You rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It ranks very near the top! I enjoy this genre and Lynn Kurland is a favorite author. I have almost all of her books!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Of course Stephan! He has fascinated me since I first read of him, he is not your obvious hero; but that is why I like him!

Which character – as performed by Justine Eyre – was your favorite?

And again, Stephen!

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

Oh, Yes! I read it one day! And almost listened to it in one sitting; but I had to stop for school!

Any additional comments?

I have always wanted to hear Kurland's books in audio and I got the chance with this one which is one of my favorite of her De Piaget (I hope I spelled that right) series!
