Publisher's Summary

Sebastian Ashcroft, fourth Marquess of Danesfield, had no intention of accompanying Sophie Beaufort on a ludicrous quest to find her missing brother. Nor did he want to be part of the investigation into her brother's dealings with the mysterious Comte de Dampierre.

But desire can do strange things to a man.

Threatened with an indecent proposal from a dissolute French comte, Sophie Beaufort is forced to travel to London to discover the reason behind her brother's mysterious disappearance. Capable of handling her own affairs, the last thing she wants is to be encumbered by the dishonourable Marquess of Danesfield - a man she so desperately wants to hate.

But does love once blossomed ever truly fade?

Features:

  • Regency historical romance novel with elements of crime and mystery
  • This novel contains descriptive love scenes
  • Complete "standalone" novel (no cliffhangers)

    What did you love best about What You Desire?

    I loved the romance between Sophie and Sebastian, although not everything went smoothly. Of course I loved the ending. I enjoyed Sophie's capers, some quite hilarious.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the action, a villain always adds interest. I also liked the secondary characters and look forward to reading more about Marie.


    Which character – as performed by Mary Phillips – was your favorite?

    I didn't have a favourite character as I thought the narrator did an excellent performance for all the characters. She really brought the characters to life through the different voices she used. She read at a good pace.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Can a hoyden make a successful Marchioness?


    Any additional comments?

    The action began at the beginning and really drew you into the story from the beginning. It was a fast moving story with a number of twists and turns. I had read the book previously but still found the audiobook to be very engaging. I received a copy and have voluntarily reviewed it. This is my honest review.

    What did you love best about What You Desire?

    I loved the combination of romance, action and duckling to swan theme. This author is fast becoming one of my favorites. She can write great dialogue and has a good balance between that dialogue and the thoughts of the characters.
    I love that the heroine is strong and smart. The hero has wonderful qualities that make you want them to be together.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of What You Desire?

    The carriage ride to the masquerade ball towards the end of the novel. the honest way the h/h tell each other what they would do to keep the other person safe. It was so touching and what I think romance is about. When you can tell a person what's in your heart and it is believable.


    Which character – as performed by Mary Phillips – was your favorite?

    The narrator did a good job. The best was the French count...that was fantastic. Just the right amount of menace, but not over the top so that it's cartoonish. Very subtle performance. You can really tell thee's skill in the narration.


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

    I don't think it was just one part. It was a great balance of a lot of things that kep my attention from drifting. Sometimes I do other things and just let the audio run, but for this book I stopped it everytime I moved away.
    At one point I thought the end was coming and I did not want that to happen. I stopped the audio just to make it last a little longer!


    Any additional comments?

    A great combination of author, story and performance. This is my new favorite novel. The next in the series is previewed at the end of this audio and I can't wait.
