Publisher's Summary

Lady Olympia Wherlocke has the gift of foresight. When Lady Agatha Mallam asks Olympia to locate her brother so he can rescue her from an arranged marriage, she knows exactly where to find Lord Brant Mallam, Earl of Fieldgate. What happens next is something she never envisioned. Since his betrothed died, Lord Brant Mallam has drowned his sorrow with wine and women. His dissolute ways have only emboldened his calculating mother. But with the help of the enchanting Olympia, he concocts a daring plan to end his mother's devious designs for his sister.

While each step in their bold scheme works to perfection, the sins of the past could unravel a growing desire that neither Olympia nor Brant can control.

Love the Wherlockes!

I thought this was an enjoyable series of books. Of course, I am a fan of Howell! The first two didn't weave together much, but they were good stories. However, as the series went, the stories became more entwined. Characters were likable and easy too become involved in. I also like this narrator!

Love this series

This is my new FAVORITE series!!!!! I am curious to see if the author will, at some point, move the series forward in time or the future.

BETTER NARRATION OR GETTING ACCUSTOM TO THE SOUND?

I enjoyed this book to the fullest. I even think Ashford MacNab is better than in the first three titles. Although I gave this one a 5 star, I still believe there are other narrators better than MacNab but none better than Hannah Howell.

Wow.. Wow.. Wow..

Any additional comments?

Lady Letitia Mallam was the most evil biotch I've ever read about. An author never had me hating a villain so much! And Minden was so crazy from the "pox" he actually believed that "bedding" the virgin Agatha would cure him? Laughable. And he was utterly disgusting, too.I absolutely loved Brant and Olympia. Her son Ilar was pretty talented when it came to the bad guys. I really like Thomas and Henry, really sweet boys. Even the street urchins were nice kids.This had some nice sex scenes that were nicely written.Overall, a really good book. I'm off to read number 6 now.

As to the narrator: Wonderful with the voices and that's what I care about: men sounding like men! But she really could put a bit of emotion in her reading, as I've said before. She really doesn't laugh or cry or yell or mutter like the book says and that really is important to some listeners. She does the voices so well that if she added emotions to her reading she'd be a 10 star narrator.

poor storyline, development and passion

The book started with what could have been a great story and as quickly turned completely flat. I felt little to no urges, nor found any bouts of excitement at the thought of getting back to the book after every pause or break. The only excitement, I admit, was to get the experience over with by fast forward listening through parts. The story was not at all gripping and I found myself wondering what type of listener actually gave this 4-5 stars. My opinion? Don’t waist your credit on this book. Move on.

Fantastic audio book!

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

Loved listening to the audio book.... Narrator did well with the voices of all the characters, accents and pronunciations..

Who was your favorite character and why?

The Wherelocks and Vaughns... I hope she continues the series and writes the stories for even more of the mentioned, important, characters.

What about Ashford MacNab’s performance did you like?

She was able to do the multitude of female, children and male voices. The only comment other than fantastic, was that to me, a lot of the male voices sounded very much alike, but not all of them...

Any additional comments?

My main suggestion, would be that while the man on the cover was extremely nice looking, it would have been better in my opinion if he had had shoulder length hair as did the character in the book. It's just personal preference to have the character on the cover resemble as closely as possibly, the characters physical description in the book.

Entertaining.

Where does If He's Tempted rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Well, I've not listened to that many, but I really enjoyed this one.

What other book might you compare If He's Tempted to and why?

I actually enjoy all of the Hannah Howell books that I've read.

What about Ashford MacNab’s performance did you like?

The narrating was well done, and the characters were given good personalities through the reading.

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

There were a few spots that made me laugh, because they were humorous. I enjoy dry humor.

Great story and very good narration.

This has been a great series so far. I really liked the hero Brandt and heroine Olympia. Very strong characters. They made a great match, had great chemistry and a few very well written sex scenes.

I love all the gifts the Wherlocks and Vaughns have, it is just a little paranormal thrown into a historical romance.

I have to say that there are so many children in these books and they are all so amazing and very funny. Along with some other fantastic secondary characters.

There is so much great witty dialogue in all of these books. Great story lines and plots that all come together very nicely. And the villains are truly villains to the extreme which makes the story even better.

As for the narration. Ashford McNab does a great job, all the men sound like men and everyone has their own distinct voice. She does a really good job on the kids's voices.

I got this book free with my Kindle Unlimited subscription and 2.99 on audible. What a great deal.
