Enjoyable

This was so much better than the first book in the series. Granted, the sex scenes are more graphic and crude than most other regencies I've read but the story was much better. I had many issues with narration, however. Pronunciation. For instance, The "O" in "Covent" (Garden) was pronounced like Covert; "Ton" being pronounced like "tun". I can't remember the other words right now (meant to write them down) but I found it very distracting.

I'm glad I read this second book. The characters were likable and the story was good. I'm glad there are more in this series.

Great series

I loved this series so much I was able to endure the irritating narrator.
I found that if I listened at x1.25 speed it was much better.

My new favorite author and series!

You know when you pick up a book with zero expectations and get blown away when you read it? This is one of those books for me. I had not read anything from this author and knew nothing of the series and now the series and the author is on my "favorite" list.

The main characters bring on the tension and angst, but they also bring the funny banter, charm, and sweet romance. Percy is adorable- headstrong and loyal, so much so, that she would risk facing the devil himself to try to save her brother from ruin. She is a genuinely good person with inclinations to adventure and mystique which, in her opinion, make for titillating writing inspiration. Gavin is a historical bad boy with enough brains to have propelled himself into building a fortune. He has a sordid past and holds a fierce grudge. So, when he realizes that Percy can be a pawn in his scheme for revenge, and a tempting little minx to boot, he feels like he'll finally have his cake and eat it too.

This book has all the components I enjoy in a romance novel: well developed characters, witty banter, smoking hot love scenes, and a tight over-arching plot to move the story along.

This was the first book I read in the series and I did not find myself lost or wondering. I have since devoured the rest of the books in the series that are available in audio form and I can say that they can be stand alone books.

Excellent narration. Great tone, pace, and distinction. I enjoyed listening to this through headphones and through the speakers in my car.

Passion, love, plot twists. I LOVED it!!!

I highly, highly recommend this book. Very witty and has some funny parts as well. I liked the love development between the two main characters and the passion was hot enough to make you sizzle. Now I cannot get into the book I just started by a different author ☺. Can’t say enough good things about this book.

Best audiobook I’ve listened to in awhile!

This historical romance had more substance to its plot than any other I’ve listened to. It forces a binge listen and you will not be disappointed. The romance aspect is quite hot and steamy as well and in different ways than your typical regency novel. The main characters were strong and enjoyable, opposites yet enough alike to make them fit in a believable way. Percy isn’t some flighty miss that you’d like to slap, but someone you’d like to befriend if she were real; and oh my...Gavin...(sigh...)

Fantastic Story, Loved it!!

What a great story. Loved the plot, the H&H, the hot and steamy sex. If you read the first book in this series, Her Husbands Harlot, you know there is a lot of sex in that book. This book was a lot tamer. I totally loved Percy she was funny, strong, witty and had spunk for days. Gavin was just awesome, loved his back story and they way the author brought book 1 and 2 together.

Narration I give 3.5 stars. And I had to listen to it on 1.25 speed otherwise it was to slow.
Credit Worthy? Yes Yes and Yes!

Great Series, Narration so so!

Excellent writer, great series. An American narrator for English prose difficult to listen to however.
