Publisher's Summary

Stephanie Laurens' hot-blooded romances, including her New York Times best-selling Bar Cynster series, have earned her legions of loyal devotees. The beginning of an exciting new saga, The Lady Chosen introduces the distinguished war veterans of the Bastion Club, single gentlemen not entirely committed to staying that way.

    "Why Jill Tanner?????"

    The story is absolutely RUINED because of this mono tone - BORING narration. I think Larry king would tell this better. There is no creative narration throughout the book and she sounds as bored reading it as she is being listened to. I LOVE Simon Prebble in the Cynster series - why change for this?
    If you have staying power and are a die hard SL fan, then grin and bare it. this is my second Jill Tanner purely out of being an SL fan, but it will be my last from this narrator. she can make a sunny day dull just by uttering a single sound.
    what a shame.

    "Narrator issues"

    The book appears to be reasonably well-written but the listening experience is marred by the narrator. She reads very s-l-o-w-l-y and does not make much of an attempt to distinguish the characters by change of voice so it is easy to get confused as to whom is speaking. This also flattens any repartee between the characters and any attempt at humor. If you like romance mysteries set in the Regency period of England, Kate Reading's readings of the Pink Carnation series by Lauren Willig are a much better choice.

    "First of the Bastion Club spies to fall in love"

    These are long drawn out romance novels but if you can grin and bear it then you will be rewarded with an enjoyable, fun, lighthearted and passionate listen.

    I prefer Jill Tanner to Simon Prebbles as he sounds too old for the parts he plays, but I don't particularly like her either.

    Worth the credit? Yes, it's long but, if you're a S.L. fan then you know what you're getting and you should enjoy it.

    "The narration is horrible"

    I will NEVER again buy a book narrated by Jill Tanner. I was completely disappointed in her abilities! I kept hoping through the first chapter that she would inprove, no such luck. It not only was boring, but also took away from the story as a whole!!!!

    "Wonderfully Good Second Half!"

    This book drove me crazy!!! First because it was frustratingly slow & then because it was fantastically fun, crazy & romantic! I have to say that never have I been more proud of myself for not giving up on a book before the second half! This book is a trial during the first four hours because everything moves at a snails pace. The same phrases are repeated endlessly to the point that I was tempted to toss my iPhone out the car window if I heard "She met his gaze" one more time, but the characters are intriguing and the female lead is no idiot so I had to stick with it because SL has never let me down before.

    Then it all clicked & the romance and mystery take off like a rocket in part two! Now I was hooked and totally invested in the tale! It is totally worth the time and sets off the B. Club quite well. I look forward to the rest of the series!

    "Not bad, but pretty average"

    As a light read in this genre, it's not bad. The romantic plot and the romantic suspense are a bit thin, and for me the hero and heroines motivations aren't always that clear. He's wife hunting, obviously besotted with our heroine, and yet it seems to take forever for it to even occur to him that she might just do. She just doesn't want to get married for some reason. I was never clear as to why not. There's some mystery in the plot, but few surprises. The narrator, Jill Tanner, started out a bit rough. I don't know if she got better or I just grew accustomed to her, but I wound up thinking she did a fair job of it. I've heard better, but heaven knows, I've heard worse. For me, both the book and the narrator were fairly average.

    "Great story but dreadful narrator"

    I loved this story but the narrator was difficult to listen to. Pauses were awkward and it was difficult to distinguish character dialogue.

    "My favorite"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Lady Chosen to be better than the print version?

    Yes!!!!!! This is my favorite Bastion Club story, and I like Ms Tanner's readings.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The developing relationship between Tristan and Lenora.


    Have you listened to any of Jill Tanner’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was my first book with Ms. Tanner as narrator. I know she's not popular with some. I really like her voice. Mr Prebbles is good but I prefer Ms. Tanner.


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

    When Lenora realizes that she may lose Tristan unless she learns to trust.

    "Good story"

    I gave this audiobook 3 stars and think the strong points include an interesting plot with equally interesting characters. It got a little long towards the end, but overall, a nice story.

    "Painful to listen to"

    I read this novel years ago and thought I'd add it to my audio book collection. It was excruciatingly painful to listen to. Total waste of money. The reading was slow and at points the narration was hard to follow because the reader paused at odd points in sentences. Unimaginative and flat for most of the story. Ruined the book for me.
