Not Blake's best and killed off by the performance

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

With a decent performance this could have been a 4 star. I had read the book before and liked certain aspects very much.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

The woman lacked some sense.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Susy Harbulak?

Anyone. I hate to say such awful things about anyone trying to earn their living, but she was just awful. I could have overlooked, with effort, her too strident, too fast narration and her Southern accent that just did not seem right for these characters. But I can not tolerate someone who did not even prepare herself by discovering how to pronounce the words. "Burnoose" does not rhyme with "furnace", "sanguine" does not rhyme with "beguine" or "queen", and "lithe" [and this one set me off yelling as it was farther in the book and barely hanging on] DOES NOT RHYME WITH "PITH". Look it up or use howjsay.com.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment. I have been a fan of Blake's for a long time, but her narrators so far are not great.

Mediocre story pared with awful narration

Don’t understand what happened here, Jennifer Blake is one of my favourite authors and her book are always a pleasure to read or listen.
This story, however, has no redeeming qualities; plot is boring and constantly revolves around duelling, all of the female characters are unlikable to the extreme and there is no real chemistry or romance between H and h.
If this book was written by anyone else it would get three stars, but Jennifer Blake could have done so much better, hence she gets one star for her effort of putting the pen to paper...

Best of Series Thus Far

Jennifer Blake has outdone herself with Prisoner of Desire. This is by fast the best novel in this series up to this point. Her characters and the storyline were brilliant.
