This was a lot of fun to listen to although I suspect I might not have enjoyed it as much had I read the book Michael Page is one of those narrators whose name on an audiobook is guaranteed to make me take a second or third look, and even though he s not narrated a huge number of romance novels, I ve enjoyed those I ve heard Most recently, I liked his reading of Victoria Alexander s The Importance of Being Wicked The plot in this story centres around Arthur Lancaster, Earl of St Merryn and This was a lot of fun to listen to although I suspect I might not have enjoyed it as much had I read the book Michael Page is one of those narrators whose name on an audiobook is guaranteed to make me take a second or third look, and even though he s not narrated a huge number of romance novels, I ve enjoyed those I ve heard Most recently, I liked his reading of Victoria Alexander s The Importance of Being Wicked The plot in this story centres around Arthur Lancaster, Earl of St
I blame myself for not liking this as much as I expected to I was in the mood for a regency romance, but managed to ignore everything I know about Amanda Quick s regencies Which made methan usually impatient with the supernatural trappings that intruded into an otherwise fine romantic story I liked both main characters and their banter and by play was fantastic I suppose the real problem is that I could easily imagine the story without the alchemical nonsense and I liked that story i I blame myself for not liking this as much as I expected to I was in the mood for a regency romance, but managed to ignore everything I know about Amanda Quick s regencies Which made methan usually impatient with the supernatural trappings that intruded into an otherwise fine romantic story I liked both main characters and their banter and by play was fantastic I suppose the real problem is that I could easily imagine the story without the alchemical nonsense and I liked that story in my head much better.So yeah, I m going to stick with the three stars as an accurate representation of my experience but with the caveat that if you don t mind Quick s usual insertion of alchemical fantastical elements you ll probably find this muchengaging.A note about Steamy Standard for the genre Quick with two or three explicit sex scenes I liked Quick s handling of Elenora s rising awareness and exploration and Arthur s expectations and

I listened to this on audiobook while I made my Christmas cards, and it was an enjoyable read and kept me entertained while I attended to my crafting The narrator used a voice for Arthur that was a bit stuffy, and not at all brooding and sexy, but otherwise, I can t complain There was a good balance between mystery and romance in this book The mystery was quite authentic, and the villain
3.85 stars Read the book when it first came out some years ago and listened to audio version recently, narrated by Michael Page A good performance Loved his British accent Decent story, too, despite the info dump and predictability This is one of Quick s stand alone historical romances I prefer them to her series installments, which are evenformulaic and predictable Quite a fun and smexy read The Earl of St Merryn is a wealthy and fairly eccentric nobleman He hires a
