Publisher's Summary

Lord Lucas Stokehurst is captivated by the gentle grace and regal beauty of “Miss Karen Billings”, who appeared seemingly out of nowhere and now stands demurely before him. Enchanted, the gallant, haunted widower impetuously offers her a position as governess to his young daughter, taking the lady of mystery into his home.

But “Miss Billings” has another name, Anastasia, and a dark past that pursues her still. Condemned for a crime she cannot remember, she barely escaped the gallows. And now she seeks shelter in the arms of a man devastated by tragedy, a man who must now defy society and the forces of vengeance to keep his lady safe and their bold new love alive.

    "Not the best of Lisa Kleypas"

    This book pales in comparison to other titles by the same author. It is too long and much too predictable. The characters aren't interesting enough to make it a good story. Plus, I think it would appeal more to a man as a fantasy than a woman. LOL

    "Love it."

    I really loved the relationship between Tasha and Luke. Lisa took her time to develop their intimacy and love. Truly enjoyed it.

    "I always enjoy a Kleypas book"

    I liked this more than I thought I would. I love LK's books. I wasn't sure what to expect with this one but it was more than OK.

    My favorite character is Emma. I think she's featured in the next book so I'm glad she'll still be around.

    This isn't the best Kleypas book but even the less-than-perfect books are still better than a lot of stuff out there.

    The narration was quite good.

    If you could sum up Midnight Angel: A Novel in three words, what would they be?

    Secretive, enticing, Alluring!


    What other book might you compare Midnight Angel: A Novel to and why?

    Any of Lisa Kleypas' books. Once you begin to read them you are pulled in until you finish it.


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

    Yes. She is a great narrator. Listened to her reading the Historical books by Julie Garwood which I would recommend.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, Yes and Yes!!!


    Any additional comments?

    I have read 3 books by Ms. Kleypas' historical romance series and they are all lovely stories. My next one sitting book is "Prince of Dreams" which is book 2 of "The Stokehursts" series. Can't wait.....

    What made the experience of listening to Midnight Angel: A Novel the most enjoyable?

    The story was interesting and about both England and Russia.

    The descriptions of Russia and its' political intrigues.

    She had a believable accented voice. She helped the story tremendously, and she did not take away from the enjoyment of listening to the romance between the two characters.

    Yes, easily.

    Midnight Angel, although a nice read-it is not Lisa Kleypas best. But, it was a nice book, and had a good ending.

    "Good Plot Twists"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Everything you want in an historical romance, but not a cliche.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Tasia was my favorite character. Her journey was very interesting


    What about Susan Duerden’s performance did you like?

    The performance was good, but sometimes it felt a little too monotone in the narrative sections.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I wanted to listen to the whole thing in one sitting, but because there are a few tense moments, I had to pause to get my own emotions under control!


    Any additional comments?

    I liked the plot twists. It didn't develop quite as a I thought it would and that was great.

    What made the experience of listening to Midnight Angel the most enjoyable?

    The performance. Susan Duerden did an amazing job with all the characters. She brought the whole story to life.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Hard to pick...


    What does Susan Duerden bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She made each of the characters their own. The voices were all unique and I felt like I was watching a movie instead of listening to a book.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yep...I pretty much did too!
