Publisher's Summary

Jane Feather, New York Times best-selling author, takes listeners back in time to King Henry VIII’s court in The Widow’s Kiss. With over four million copies of her novels in print, she is an accomplished author of historical romances.

Lady Guinevere Mallory has been married four times in 12 years, and each of her husbands has died mysteriously. Adept in the laws of property, she has secured the land of each of her late spouses, vastly increasing her personal wealth. After the death of her fourth husband, this trend raises some eyebrows at the royal court, and Hugh of Beaucaire is sent to investigate these puzzling events. When they meet, passion envelops them both, but he is forced to wonder, will he be the next victim of this bewitching beauty?

Jane Feather has also written The Least Likely Bride. Jenny Sterlin’s seductive narration will have listeners ensnared in this tantalizing web of passion and deception.

Very entertaining!

Where does The Widow's Kiss rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The Widow's Kiss is one of my all time favorites. The story is interesting and the characters come alive within the story.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Many of the characters make this story entertaining but I literally laughed out loud over the youngest daughter's character from the beginning to the end of this story.

What about Jenny Sterlin’s performance did you like?

Jenny Sterlin's performance was well done. She was able to portray each of the characters, both male and female in a credible way.

Splendid!

What else can be said about this book other than it is so much more than a book. It is a story! A masterpiece of the blending of author and narrator! The details carefully crafted with subtle nuances of character allowed JS to weave a splendid narration, and I am finding this is one story to listen to again and again!

Good story, narrator did a great job. Enjoyable

If you could sum up The Widow's Kiss in three words, what would they be?

Unique. Enjoyable.

Any additional comments?

The story was compelling and the performance very good. I became frustrated with the heroine. It felt one sided and she never learned her lesson about the cost of arrogance and pride. Loved the hero and the children. Great historical setting.
