Publisher's Summary

From the wonderfully romantic and creative pen of Debra Mullins, here is an exciting and sensuous tale about two people who overcome a dark past to find an everlasting love.

The groom: Rogan Hunt has no need for a wife. After a stint in prison, he is only concerned with rebuilding the coffers of his estates. But then the Duke of Belvingham makes him an offer only a fool would refuse.

The bride: Lady Caroline Ware is horrified when her father arranges her marriage with a man said to have a wild temper and an even wilder reputation. But the Duke is dying, and Caroline has no choice but to agree.

The marriage: Caroline could not have imagined that her husband would be so tender, so warm, so sensual. Rogan was expecting a meek and timid wife, but instead Caroline is vibrant, charming, and passionate. Will this marriage turn into something they have secretly hoped it would be? Or will the real reason behind it finally come to light, destroying them both?

Great story and reader!

I started to bypass this book because “A KAREN” complained about the reader. Please don’t skip this book or reader. I don’t know what Karen’s problem was maybe something personal but her review was incorrect. I absolutely enjoyed JILLY BOND’s performance. I have been looking for an author to use my credits on for over three years. I have been with Audible since 2004. This author continues to fill the gap after Nora Roberts and Stephanie Laurens have slowed their publications. The book is a hit. Tragic and yet real. Try it.

Could have been better

The book was good, but the narrator made the characters come off as whiny throughout the book. I almost quit listening a few different times due to the narration.

wrong narrator

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Yes, I would change the narrator

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

It was good and wrapped up the story nicely.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jilly Bond?

My favourite is Rosalyn landor. I wish she could read every audio book set in England. This narrator is too dramatic and over-wrought in how she reads. She can make a grocery list sound like a murder mystery! She also made the heroine sound alittle too much like a child, especially during the love scenes, which was disturbing.

What would have made this romance irresistible?

I can't tell if it was the narrator or the story. I was just so put off by the reading I could not really think about the plot.It was okay, but not great. I can't think of how to improve this story, as it had a lot of elements, but nothing that really touched me.

Any additional comments?

I am going to try another book by this author, but not the narrator. I want to give the author the benefit of the doubt regarding the writing.

Terrible narrator and really bad sex scenes!

I have never ever given a 1 star review but this book is just dreadful. I had listened to two other romances by the same author and they were OK and well-narrated.
But this! The narrator is terrible. She is permanently gasping, sobbing, moaning, voice trembling, etc. The sex scenes would win the Bad Sex Awards. And the ending is very abrupt and leaves loads of loose ends.
If this had been the first one by this author I had listened to, I would never have listened to another. Sorry to be harsh, but it's true. Certainly will avoid anything with this narrator!

Really enjoyed Narration/Book

I felt as though I was watching rather than listening to this book, I enjoyed the story line and the way the narrator brought the characters to life.

Ruined by narration

The story has interesting premise and promising leading characters, but the narrator is much too emotional (to be blunt, simply bad). The constant exclamation and sobbing make listening a real toil. Really cannot finish this audiobook, but I will continue reading the actual book.

A Gripping and entertaining story

Gripping from the very start. If you enjoy a good love story with an actual story amidst the detail sex scenes. This is the one for you. The narrator worked magic in depicting each character, bringing the plot to life.

Mixed Feelings

The story had potential, but was somewhat lacking in a good plot. It was interesting in some areas, and a bit forced in others. There were a lot of "suddenly" events. e.g. suddenly they heard noise... a commotion ... a knock at the door. It seemed Debra Mullins was trying hard to keep the plot eventful, only slightly succeeding.

Rogan, the hero in the story's temper was immature, and Catherine, the heroine was a touch annoying - if you don't want to be treated like a child, then grow up!! I wasn't crazy about the buildup to the end as I thought it was a little coincidental. The way it ended was quite unnecessary and boring.

However, Mullins did a great job with charactisation, and she writes superbly.

As for the narrator, Jilly Bond, she was a shock to my system at first, and I wondered if I would be able to carry on listening. Nevertheless, perseverance paid off as, I felt, she added excitement to the story and brought life to the characters. She is a good reader and she helped me imagine and picture things better. I really do think she should be on stage. She's good with voices, but found it rather dfficult to be consistent, at times. Plus, she made Catherine sound even more annoying than her character already was. I didn't like how Bond's tone/volume dropped with Rogon at certain times. I found myself having to turn up the volume and go back a lot, so I could catch what he said. Not sure I would always like to hear her as a nnarrator.

Overall, I found 'Just One Touch' average, but certainly not a waste of my time.

Story was OK, performance wasn't great

Story was OK, but the performance was not great, the different voices were done badly and were distracting often the narator got the voice wrong for the following discription of the person's tone.
Story was full of holes and convenient happenings. Plot akes place over about a fortnight and people do not change their character that much in a fortnight even in fiction that's a stretch!

Laborious

Slow and tedious. The sex was necessary to the plot but was overdone. The narrator was overly dramatic and her male voices too gruff.

Horrible narration

Great story line. Sadly I almost stopped listening many times because of the overly dramatic tone and off putting voices of the narrator.
