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.

Reputation is not alway what it seem and this book was exactly that way it kept you guessing and wondering
"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.
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
"not as good as usual for Ms. Quick"
uncharacteristically of an Amanda Quick book, this rather dragged. Madeline/the heroine was a worrywart and a drip.
I liked the hero, but the heroine and her ghosts and dead husband did not really do it for me.
barbara may be a wonderful person but she can not narrate out of a paper bag
can not get thou book had to buy hard copy
