Publisher's Summary

When a blackmailer threatens her Aunt Zoe, Iphiginia knows she can ferret out the villain. A 26-year-old vixen with the intellect to match her beauty, Iphiginia descends on London society as the dazzling mistress of the missing Earl of Masters—another supposed victim of the blackmailer. But when the missing earl suddenly reappears at a ball, Iphiginia is caught in her own clever lie.

Great narration

If you could sum up Mistress in three words, what would they be?

If you're a Ragency fan, Amanda Quick is a great bet. Mischief is one of her best. Humor, spooky thrills, feisty heroine, strong hero. Barbara Rosenblatt provides an engaging narration with exceptionally good male voices that enhance the fun.

Friends kept liberating paper copies

The best laid plans of nieces and earls.....
Another Quick worth rereading, another good fun.
Publisher's blurb gives plot clues, but cannot convey the situational and/or conversational humor.
Moves along quickly (I know, horrible pun), twists along quite nicely, and with truly enjoyable characters.
Barbara Rosenblatt's performance really does add to the enjoyment!

Entertaining story with historical accuracies

Iphiginia is such an entertaining and intelligent person, I couldn't help but love her. Her ability to react smartly in an unexpected turn of event and her boldness get her in very laughable perdicaments which she navigates with daring and confidence. Her personality shines in the midst of this historical setting. This is a mystery to determine who the blackmailer is with just the right amount of romance (I am NOT a fan of long, trashy sex scenes). The narration is top notch, as well.

Likable characters - a good read.

Someone said Quick's stories were too much alike. I disagree. I think maybe it is the narrator that leads one to that impression. Although this narrator is not my favorite for women's voices, she does the male parts quite well. The story kept my attention, and I liked the characters. This may be one of my favorites by Quick.

Love Amanda Quick's chicks

I truly liked this listen. The lead female is strong, the hero intriguing, and the story is amusing. Definitely a good use of time. This is the only AQ I have listened to, having the rest of my exposure to her in print. But this was so enjoyable, I may listen to the books I borrowed from my sister.

Steady Amanda Quick, Never goes wrong

I love the charming historical novels of Amanda Quick. Her female leads are always strong and self sufficient yet not afraid to get a little cuddly with a man. They are intelligent and it's fun to how they go about solving a problem. I first listened to her "Paid Companion" and haven't been disappointed yet. Talent like Amanda Quick's is a rare find!

VT. FAN

Would you consider the audio edition of Mistress to be better than the print version?

THERE WILL PROBABLY NEVER BE A TIME WHEN I FEEL THE AUDIO VERSION OF A BOOK IS BETTER THAN THE PRINT VERSION. IN PRINT MY IMAGINATION RULES FROM THE LOOK OF THE CHARACTERS, TO IMAGINING THE SCENES DESCRIBED, TO THE VOICES, ALL COMES FROM MY IMAGINATION WHEN I READ.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Mistress?

THAT IS WHAT IS SO GOOD WITH AMANDA QUICK BOOKS THE ENTIRE BOOK IS MEMORABLE THAT IS WHAT MAKES AND AUTHOR A BESTSELLER WETHER IT BE JUST ONE BOOK (TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD) OR NUMEROUS NOVELS.

Which character – as performed by Barbara Rosenblat – was your favorite?

BARBARA ROSENBLAT DID SUCH AN GREAT JOB THAT EACH CHARACTER WAS SEPARTELY AND DISTINCTIVELY BROUGHT TO LIFE. FABULOUS.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

ITS AMANDA QUICK! YOU LAUGH, YOU CRY AND YOU SIGH. YOU HATE TO HAVE IT END. THATS WHY I OWN BOTH PRINT AND MOST AUDIOS. I HOPE SHE STICKS WITH ROSENBLAT WHO IS 100% BETTER THAT FLOSNCK. I WISH THE JULIE GARWOOD WOULD USE ROSENBLAT FOR HER AUDIO BOOKS SHE WOULD BE GREAT.

My first Amanda Quick in Audible

I have been buying and reading Amanda Quick paperbacks and hardcovers books since the '90's ; so it's obvious , that I enjoy reading her books .
But, I was a bit taken aback by how slow and sometimes tedious listening to Mistress felt . It might be because I didn't liked some of secondary characters voices and the long and awkward pauses during the narrative.

Few of AQ books are in the Romance Package so I will give another try and listen to another story , if it doesn't work out, it might be that I prefer to read her books instead of listen to it.

Good Performance, somewhat boring story

Mistress by Amanda Quick
Narrated by: Barbara Rosenblat

2 Stars - Found this audiobook in Audible’s Romance Package and decided to read something from when I first fell in love with romance! I remember loving Amanda Quick and quickly making it through her entire backlist. This time around, I found that the book lacked the witty dialogue I have come to expect in my historical romances, and instead favours discussing antiquities. I wonder if just my tastes have changed or if perhaps I just chose one of the books that wasn’t her best. I am sure I will try another of hers again in the future and see. The plot itself was alright, but I did find that it seemed to drag a bit.

The narrator did a good job. I would listen to her again.
