Widowed Anna Wren is having a wretched day. After an arrogant man on horseback nearly crushes her, she arrives home to learn that she is in dire financial straits.

THERE COMES A TIME IN A LADY'S LIFE

The Earl of Swartingham is in a quandary. Having frightened off two secretaries, Edward de Raaf needs someone who can withstand his bad temper and boorish behavior.

WHEN SHE MUST DO THE UNTHINKABLE....

When Anna becomes the earl's secretary, it would seem that both their problems are solved. But when she discovers he plans to visit the most notorious brothel in London, she sees red - and decides to assuage her desires....

    If you could sum up The Raven Prince in three words, what would they be?

    Entertaining
    enjoyable
    enthralling


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters are very entertaining and believable, sometimes funny, sometimes very sexy, and sad in parts, it brings out lots of emotions.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    In the grotto, and the scenes where the characters were being humorous.


    Any additional comments?

    A bit slow when introducing the charcters, but once I got past chapter 5 I was totally hooked.
    Narration is very good and I enjoyed moira's voices.

    "pleasantly surprised by the narration"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    yes. the story is well told and narrated very entertainingly. It has just the right mixture of suspense and romance. This is certainly not my last book by the author...or the narrator!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Raven Prince?

    not sure if there was a most memorable moment, but I did enjoy the fact that 2 stories were told simultaniously - the Raven Prince and the actual story about Anna Wren and Lord Swartingham. Although it was confusing at the beginning, I liked the touch it gave the story throughout the book.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    to be honest...I am not finished with the book yet...but I liked the scene in the library very much.


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

    again, the library scene, as this is the first time, Lord Swartingham seems to understand that Anna wants only him.


    Any additional comments?

    For me the narrator is the highlight of the story. Personally I used to prefer contemporary stories told by American narrators, but Moira Quirk’s performance has proven me wrong. She did wonderful job, differentiating the different characters by giving them different voices and accents. Very well done!

    Any additional comments?

    If I want to be swept away, I read Elizabeth Hoyt! This story takes place in the country and it has a country-pace. A slow NOT action packed story. But the romance is heartwarming and the intimacy is hot and sexy. Characters are believable. Not a lot goes wrong, not much drama. it's a nice airy listen

    Story
    "One of my favorite books--ever"
    What made the experience of listening to The Raven Prince the most enjoyable?

    I've discovered that the narrator can make or break an audiobook. Moira Quirk is fantastic. But I loved this story because it was a love story. The author did a good job getting the reader to be empathetic with the characters.


    What other book might you compare The Raven Prince to and why?

    I am not sure which other book i would compare it to, but I loved it. I think this is the best thing Elizabeth Hoyt has ever produced and wish she would write more characters like these two.


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

    Yes, but I can't remember which ones. She is an excellent narrator and a perfect fit for this genre.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely. I have listened to it two or three times already and am considering it again!


    Any additional comments?

    If anyone comes across a book similar to this one, recommend it to me, please. I would love to read another like this one!

    Story
    "Nicely done"

    This book is an erotic historic romance novel.

    Gotta say that I am not much of a historian reader, and the lingo throws me off a bit. BUT this was cute, romantic and funny. I have to admit I chuckled a few times.

    Widowed Anna Wren is about to have her world turned around. The man she was married to has left her with questions, barren and her past is going to come at her in full force.

    The Earl of Swartingham needs a secretary and society only allows men to fill the position. He has a hard time getting anyone to understand his reasoning to demanding. His position doesn't allow him to falter until he meets his new employee.

    I loved this story so much. Hoyt is a captivating writer, and she knows how to develop her characters. This story is one that I will read again and enjoy.

    The Earl and Ann have a strong connection and their relationship builds wig intensity. Very steamy and exciting.

    I absolutely recommend !

    Story
    "A funny and charming fairy tale"
    Would you listen to The Raven Prince again? Why?

    Oh, yes, this was a wonderful story. I already have listened to it more than once. This is a keeper. It had all of the right romance elements: A relationship that grows, humor, lovable main characters, good secondary characters, pathos, romance, a bit of steam, and much more.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character is Edward because he is an arrogant, vulnerable man who has had his heart broken.


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

    I cannot remember if I have listened to other Quirk performances. I will have to check, but I know I will be looking for her, again. She is very good.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed often in this story and got a lump in my throat at some of the vulnerable parts. I was totally immersed in the story. The reader did such an excellent job with the voices, and the author wrote characters that I empathized with. The characters tended to be more straight forward and honest than some other novels, even given the subject matter. It is refreshing.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved, loved, loved this novel .I will listen to it whenever I need to listen to a guaranteed feel good romance.
