Publisher's Summary

In this first ever short story collection, New York Times best-selling author Francis Ray takes us on five steamy, sexy adventures. From a timid, dowdy duckling who turns into a confident, sexy swan which sends her into the arms of a handsome artist; to a bridesmaid’s explosive encounter with the best man; to an unproven actress who is being wooed to the stage by a handsome Broadway director; from a journalist’s very steamy night with an old flame to a woman who pretends that she is dating a wealthy businessman but never imagines he would show up to collect on that claim. Experience just how much Francis Ray can turn up the heat!

Narrarator's voice sounds artficial & emotionless

Would you try another book from Francis Ray and/or Betty Hart?

Maybe, but definitely not if Betty Hart is the narrator. Ms. Hart voice sounds synthesized...like the Google voice. She reads with no emotion...very detached from the characters.

Would you ever listen to anything by Francis Ray again?

Not sure. Maybe if Francis Ray used a different narrator.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Betty Hart sounds voice is emotionless and sounds artificial.

What character would you cut from Twice the Temptation?

I didn't finish the book. I couldn't take listening to the narrator a minute longer.

Awful Narration

What didn’t you like about Betty Hart’s performance?

The cadence and voice changes are not believable. I was not drawn to the any of the stories in this book because of the narrator.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

This book may have been better for me if I'd read it myself. This audible version was just horrible. I just let the book play (to get it over with) without getting into any of the stories after the first one.
