Spoilt by bad recording,where the cd faltered.

A typical Lauren’s story, though the sex scenes were rather overdone to the point of nausea. Strong characters and a simple plot but delightful tussel of the sexes.

worthy of a re-read or three

I have just re-listened to this great tale, after a six month break, during which i have read or listened to many of the succesdive Cynster stories, in which I loved any appearance of Devil and Honoria (and Sebastian), and wallowed in the first book. Prebble is excellent, but his volume increases during the steamy scenes and I need to turn him down!

Just awful and aged so badly.

This made for uncomfortable listening. The heroine is a simpering fool. Despite the authors attempts to paint her as ‘different’ she can’t manage anything without being distracted by the hero.
The hero might have been classed as attractive once, but it now makes for really uncomfortable listening that his most attractive feature is that he won’t take no for an answer- and that if you ask a woman enough times then they’ll come to their senses and say yes eventually.

If you like hot sex, this is the book for you.

There is an underlining story, but it is swallowed up by the smouldering looks, the heavy breathing etc. I found both characters very one dimensional and I had to keep asking if they were for real.

Great story - very well performed. I cannot fault it and recommend it highly. Not to be missed.
