Publisher's Summary

Fallon, the Marchioness of Mystery, is a celebrated courtesan with her finger on the pulse of high society. She's adored by men, hated by their wives. No one knows anything about her past, and she plans to keep it that way.

Warrick Fitzhugh will do anything to protect his compatriots in the Foreign Office, including seduce Fallon, who he thinks can lead him to the deadliest crime lord in London. He knows he's putting his life on the line. Warrick's shock, Fallon is not who he thinks she is, and the secrets she's keeping are exactly what makes her his heart's desire.

Good Story...not so happy with the narrator.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend reading this book over listening to it. It was a good story.

How could the performance have been better?

I HATED the annoying voice the narrator gave the male character. He's supposed to be this tough man with scars and stuff. But she made him sound like a big whiny ninny. If she had just gave him a better voice I would have enjoyed the performance much more.

I'd give the narrator a 0 if I could..

Any additional comments?

I listened to the book for about 30 minutes before I was forced to give up. The voice she did for the hero was horrible, which is amazing since I gave her 5 stars on When You Give A Duke A Diamond. It's a shame, really. I gave it 3 stars on here because I want to be fair to the author. I'm going to READ the book and I'm sure it will be a 5 star book when I leave my review on Amazon. When a female narrator can't do a man's voice she shoudn't be a narrator. Just sayin'

This story is a jewel itself!

Loved it! I love the way that some details from book one were carried thru but without making you wonder what they're talking about or getting frustrated by repetition. (I truly dislike it when too big a portion of a book in a series is spent in the telling of the previous books!) I even enjoyed what was left to follow to book three! I can hardly wait until it's available....
I found this story delightful, slightly dark occasionally, and often funny. It's a regency romance mystery that I for one thoroughly enjoyed! From characters to story line, it was a good book!
Credit worthy? Heavens yes! But if you have not read the first book in this series yet then I emphatically encourage you to do so before reading (listening to) this one.
