Summary

Volume One includes four full-length novels:

Ever Yours, Annabelle: As a girl, Annabelle Huxley chased Robert Conrad with reckless abandon, and he always rescued her when she pushed too far - until the accident that cost him everything.

The Madness of Viscount Atherbourne: Victoria Lacey's life is perfect-perfectly boring. Surely no one suspects her secret longing for head-spinning passion. Except a dark stranger, on a terrace, at a ball where she should not be kissing a man she has just met. 

The Truth About Cads and Dukes: Painfully shy Jane Huxley is in a most precarious position, thanks to dissolute charmer Colin Lacey's deceitful wager. Now, his brother, the icy Duke of Blackmore, must make it right, even if it means marrying her himself. 

Desperately Seeking a Scoundrel: Tortured and hunted by a brutal criminal, Lord Colin Lacey is rescued from death's door by the stubborn, fetching Sarah Battersby. In return, she asks one small favor: Pretend to be her fiance. With danger nipping his heels, he knows it is wrong to want her, wrong to agree to her terms. But when has Colin Lacey ever done the sensible thing?

Contains mature themes.

Loved the stories

The stories were really good, I loved them. To begin with I felt they were ruined by the narrator, her voice sounded depressed and so tragic most of the time and her pronunciation of her words was ridiculous and weird, back was bark, perhaps was p'hups, black was blark, fact was fuct, acceptance was arcceptance, and then she pronounced some words the other way round like blast should be pronounced blarst and answer arnswer. So any words that should have been pronounced as ah were pronounced as a, and words that were supposed to be pronounced as a were pronounced as ah. Anyway I still continued listening because the stories were really good and it was 4 books for1 credit. And by the time I got to the 2nd book I got used to the narrator but her pronunciation of her words were still very annoying, but apart from that I thought she was quite good, a lot better than some female narrators I have listened to, if only she would pronounce her words properly. I will be buying the rest of this series as I'd like to know what happens to the other characters in the series.

Narration unbearable.

Too breathy and so “affected”. Instead of back she says bock and about 20 other bizarrely affected words.

Tried speeding it up. Barely made it through book one but cannot continue. This will be returned.

Narration is awful stories are entertaining

I have to admit I agree with other reviewers that the narrator is not suited to the material and in fact steels the story she is so distracting. In fact I have over 2100 books across multiple genres and I have never felt this way before about narration. As to the stories, all intertwined in four books with one credit that would not be necessary except for the narration. This seems to be the author’s early work as her more recent release are funnier.

I couldn't finish the first book. The narrater was

so bad that I struggled to listen to any of the book. I'm not sure why she paused so much and spoke so slowly.
