Just when I thought I could finally get some sleep...... Sylvia Day brings out yet another must have listen in her Georgian series and once again I'm totally hooked.
This was particularly good - childhood sweethearts Colin and Amelia lose touch but eventually reunite years later unfortunately it's at the worst possible time for both of them (isn't it always!) as she's getting engaged to a long-time friend and Colin is a spy who's undercover and who want's her and out of the spy business. This is sooo touching as Amelia's torn between old love, a friend's love and a new exciting love and Colin has to fight hard first to try to stay away from her then to fight for her.
It's go passion, heartbreak, sex, tension, excitement and brilliant romantic characters to empathise with - there are some characters that we know well as we have met them before in previous books so, to get the most out of this series, they're not really meant to be stand alone listens. There's some bad language too so it may put some of you off.
Worth a credit? Again, and I've said it before in my previous reviews, it's a cheap series to just buy and we'll worth it - however I would gladly have used credits.

Cheaper than most paperbacks so why not settle back and listen to a little Georgian romance?
Collin and Amelia are star crossed lovers divided by bloodlines. She's a peer of the realm, he's a gypsy stable boy. Their love propels their paths together and then away, flash forward several years and Amelia thinks Collin has died (although how is never explained) and Amelia finds loving another man that's not Collin impossible until a masked stranger comes into her life and upsets everything she has settled into. Now she must choose between reckless abandon or staid security. The choices she makes will forever alter everyone's lives.
I liked how this story dives right in and captured my attention. I had never read one of Slyvia Day's books before so I didn't know what to expect, unfortunately for me this is a series and many characters from other books find their way in and out of the story making this book hard to stand alone. I would reccomend starting with book one and progressing from there. I often lost track of characters, playing a game of "who was that again?"
While I can't say this book is stellar it is a nice story and at just over $7 it's worth the price. Justine Eyre gives an admirable performance as the narrator, not my favorite but still pleasant to listen to. The sex scenes are a bit graphic so be fore warned. I did not take offense but some might. The story is confusing at times if your not paying close attention but other than I would say its good.

Story passable, voice of audible version not good. Spoilt it for me. She cannot do British or foreign accents or dialects well so should not attempt them! I'll try some others I the series, they have a different person narrating them I think.
