See what happens when The Lady Risks All

The passionate new love story from number-one New York Times best-selling author of The Capture of the Earl of Glencrae, Stephanie Laurens...

Neville Roscoe, notorious and enigmatic, lives resolutely outside society, bound only by his own code of honor - until challenged by his desire for the one woman he cannot have.

Miranda Clifford is a lady imprisoned by rigid respectability - until tempted by a passion beyond her power to deny.

Flung together in peril, through danger and intrigue, they discover a love impossible to ignore...or keep.

Good entertaining story but disappointing narrator

S.L. is an automatic download for me, so I was surprised when I started listening to this book that the narrator wasn't the usual S.L. narrator Simon Prebble, however I thought I would give him a chance. I didn't like his voice and had to put it on double speed in order to listen to the book so if you can do that or just persevere with the narration then the story should not dissappoint. (play 'Sample' to listen for yourself and decide).

Great characters are involved in a dangerous plot of greed and, as Roscoe and Miranda set out to rescue her brother, they become more and more attracted to each other even tho they know their romance is doomed and cannot go anywhere, they just can't say no. It's a detective/romance as they both try to unravel the mystery of who, what and why.

Worth a credit? Despite the narration I would say Yes but please find another narrator for the next book.

Another excellent rendering by this author

Would you listen to The Lady Risks All again? Why?

Excellent story line and masterful reading

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Lady Risks All?

tough to describe only one as the mystery surrounding Roscoe is finally unveiled

What about Matthew Brenher’s performance did you like?

Good delineation of moods and characteristics of various characters

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

the sadness of Roscoe's perception of self as hopeless to move on to a morre satisfying way of life

Intriguing and fully realized new characters for SLaurens!

I’ve fallen in love with Lord Julian Roscoe Neville Galbraith just as our protective, loving and smart heroine, Miranda Clifford, ultimately will.

Since Lord Julian’s alter ego, gambler - entrepreneur - philanthropist Neville Roscoe is an ancillary, almost cartoonish character in two of the Bastion Club novels, this novel is a delight to explore a new narrative world in a different time period (1823) with the fog of Napoleon and two decades of war long gone yet still near enough; after the first generation of Cynster cousins marry but before that second younger generation of younger cousins come of age. So no Cynsters are present but a few favorites from the Bastion Club cohort so pop up!

There’s an interesting & not convoluted major plot line that forces ODC to be out of London for a substantial hunk of the story and the intro of a new raft of characters who will likely be protagonists of their own stories in the future.

Our couple is a wonderful pairing, who are each other’s match so there’s plenty of great dialogue between them. But ultimately it’s the transformation each weathers that makes this ending so worthwhile.

I’d recommend Laurens get out of her comfort zone again so she can craft believable characters like Roscoe and Miranda in future novels. While there were a few cameos from past series to remind us readers of the larger Cynster World, the story and characters were fresh!

So .....
5 stars for new, fresh story

3.5 for narration, I merely tolerate Matthew Brenher and try not to fall asleep tho his voice is great when going to sleep! In TLRA, I did like his voices for Julian-Roscoe and Miranda which made this an easier listen.

4.25 overall. Definitely worth a credit.

Classic Laurens!!

There is a couple of reviws who don't like Matthew Brenher's narration. Obviously they are new listeners to Stephanies books as he narrates a few of her books. I have listened to better but I would not say he is on the worst scale by any means.

Awesome to have a wee crossover to the Black Cobra Quartet books, albeit a small one. I do love her books and anyone who has read them will as well.

This is a must have to any Laurens fan library.

Entertaining

Well up to Stephanie Lauren's usual standard. There was an interesting twist to the story. Very easy listening
