Publisher's Summary

There was no doubt about it. What Miss Harriet Pomeroy needed was a man. Someone powerful and clever who could help her rout the unscrupulous thieves who were using her beloved caves to hide their loot. But when Harriet summoned Gideon Westbrook Viscount St. Justin to her aid, she could not know that she was summoning the devil himself....
Dubbed the Beast of Blackthorne Hall for his scarred face and lecherous past, Gideon was strong and fierce and notoriously menacing. Yet Harriet could not find it in her heart to fear him. For in his tawny gaze she sensed a savage pain she longed to soothe...and a searing passion she yearned to answer.

Now, caught up in the beast's clutches, Harriet must find a way to win his heart - and evade the deadly trap of a scheming villain who would see them parted for all time.

Critic Reviews

"Although more romance than Regency - a few articles of clothing and a liberal sprinkling of the word ton suffice for atmosphere - genre aficionados will find this a spiffy read." ( Publishers Weekly)

Characters voices a disappointment

This is one of my all time favorite books by Amanda Quick so I was very excited when I saw that an audible book had been done. But I was fairly disappointed in the narrator. She saw ok for reading the text but I felt that she missed the mark when it came to the characters voices - especially the hero's voice. She made him sound condescending and unpleasant. Not at all how you would want a hero to sound.

Ravished

I love Amanda Quick and this book is one of my favorites but I have a hard time listening due to narrater's voice. When she does Gidion's lines I usually end up going to something else. At this rate I will never get to the end

Book - 5 stars...Narration - 2 stars

I truly love Amanda Quick. And I am truly saddened by the fact that almost all of her books seem to be narrated by Anne Flosnik. The other disaster is Josephine Bailey (who narrates other AQ books)...*sigh*

The book - Great characters, fun predicaments, great romance!

The narration - almost painful to listen to (although I appreciate the British accent) because the voice was thready and her attempt at a masculine voice was a disaster. I actually could not finish listening to this book (although I have read it several times) due to the narration.

So, while I love Amanda Quick in hard copy, I will not be spending anymore money on her audiobooks.

Finally the Narrator Gets It Right

Finally Anne Flosnick catches the right tone with Amanda Quick's Ravished! She was, at last, able to get the hero's proper attitude down! Yes haughty and cold (for good reason) but totally besotted and indulgent with the heroine from the very beginning, just as all of Quick's heroes are!

Quick has long been a favorite author for me so to see her earlier books coming out on audio was exciting. To hate Flosnick's interruption of the heroes personalities until Ravished was very disappointing. I haven't listened to the other two in the "R" series as I'm afraid of wasting more credits as I did with the three "S" series of books.

To say I was totally underwhelmed by Flosnick's narration of the three "S" series of books is an understatement. Flosnick ruined them for me with her harsh/cruel interpretation of the heroes. Quick has never written that type of a hero! They may be firm and try to remain cold in trying to come to grips with the feisty heroines but they are always besotted and indulgent right from the start. If I can't "hear" that classic Quick hero then the books are not worth listening to.

For me Ravished was finally narrated properly and I thoroughly enjoyed the listen.

Best and most expressive narrator

What did you love best about Ravished?

The intelligence of the herione

What did you like best about this story?

Too hard to choose.

Have you listened to any of Anne Flosnik’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I love her voice. She does men believably well and sounds very authentic. I only buy audio by her if she is the only narrator.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The loyality and blind faith both characters had for one another.

Any additional comments?

This is a very well written book, it makes you laugh and feel what the characters feel. It pulls you in to the story and makes you a part of it!

Just a marvelous romance.

The heroine is not a victim. The hero is not so handsome that he's unbelievable. The story is fast moving and captivating. Even if you do not like romance novels, you should read this one. It is not a follow a format book. The main characters are like old friends, I love to revisit.

Glad I can listen to this now.

I have read this book over and over and I am glad now that I can listen to it just as much. I love her writing as Jayne Anne Krentz, Jayne Castle and Amanda Quick. All Amanda Quick novels are worth reading. Glad I found this one on sale so that I could get it even without a credit.

An entertaining story

I love Amanda Quick, I have always liked that her characters are not the beautiful people. Instead they are eccentric or maybe a little scary, and lets face it most of us are. ;) However, the female lead in the story is always getting into some sort of situation. I have no idea how she managed to survive her first 24 years without having her own personal hero. It seemed like she should be put into a padded cell just to keep her safe. That part aside, I really did love the interaction between the hero and heroine. They fit each other perfectly, complimenting one where the other may fall short. Overall, a charming book that I know I will listen to several more times.
