Publisher's Summary

With over 25 million books in print, best-selling author Amanda Quick is a favorite of readers who relish historical romances. In her works, including Mistress, Mischief, and Affair, Amanda Quick offers delicious romantic thrillers set in the opulent world of Regency-era London.

The widow Madeline Deveridge is both admired and feared by high society. Devastatingly beautiful, she is rumored to have killed her wealthy husband. Artemis Hunt is a handsome gentleman who is also a master of secret arts. His concentration on his own affairs is shattered, however, when Madeline demands his help one fog-shrouded night. Brought together by a mutual bargain - and a ghost - their bond sparks an attraction that will be far more dangerous than either suspects. Noted for her spirited performances of Amanda Quick’s novels, narrator Barbara Rosenblat captures each nuance of the two heroes’ intelligence and passion.

Wicked Read

This was great to have on as I drove to Florida. The wife and I enjoy Amanda Quick's time line on writing as much as the other names that Jane writes under

Very enthralling, highly recommend it

I have enjoyed every book by Amanda Quick, that I have read so far and this story did not disappoint.
The Narration is outstanding. Barbara Rosenblat is extremely talented and definitely is one of the best female narrators. As much as I enjoyed this story, I believe that without Barbara Rosenblat’ talent, it would not be such a wonderful Audible experience. Well done!

Entertaining !

Terrific story, but the narrator volume would change so much that it became annoying and hard on my ears. She would drop off to a whisper at the end of almost every phrase so that you either had to turn up the volume or miss the end of each sentence..and then she would blast loudly into your ears at the beginning of the next sentence. Hope my ears aren’t permanently damaged!

Amanda Quick does it again.

As any of Amanda Quick fans know if you like her stuff they are all good. I think Mistress is my favorite, I'm not as big fan of the Arcane society series. I don't like how she has a running series with all three of her pen names, I need to read books in order and this drives me crazy how it is all mixed up. This was a typical regency romance with a slight mystery involved. There were a few audio recording errors, a couple of times the lines repeated themselves at the beginning of the book. The first couple of times I thought I imagined it, but then they came more frequent as the story progressed. I've heard this narrator several times and knowing she isn't my favorite, I would still be willing to listen to her. She sounds like a smoker and sometimes you can hear her swallowing, this seems to be a problem she has with all books.

Love Amanda Quick

But hate the narrator. She ruins any book I listen to. And a lot I avoid when I see that she’s the narrator.

Wicked widow

Great book. Enjoyed both written and narrated verzions. This particular narrator is one of the best I've listened to. Her voices are excellent and varied and easily recognizable between characters.

Great story! Narration with audible SWALLOWING annoying!

Again Amanda Quick had done a wonderful job with another suspenseful romance!
Lots of twists and turns!
Biggest problem again is with Narration done by Barbara Rosenblat!
Distracting the listener from the story ...is her constant SWALLOWING NOISES during the reading of book. Very annoying at times!
She does the voices well enough, but the audible swallowing sounds distract from the storyline!!! And are quit loud during audio version of book.
That really is the only bad part of listening to the last couple of Amanda Quick novels read by Barbara Rosenblat!
I just glad she finally switched the person who reads who newer books to someone else.

I'm not trying to be petty, but I listen to a lot of audio books and was relistening to the Vanza series and it was so darn noticeable, that it was distracting to the wonderful storyline.

too long

Mostly predictable.Audible should give us a way to skip the silly arguments. When the book has to have a forward telling you how great the author is: beware.

Excellent Narration enjoyable story

I’ve been enjoying revisiting my favourite Amanda Quick books in audiobook format. The recordings are excellent and the stories have held up and still delight my interest. One of the things I most enjoyed about this book is that the heroine rescues herself.

Entertaining listen

Lighthearted fun, great narrator, and just what one looks for in an Amanda Quick book. A relaxing, undemanding, enjoyable listen.
