Publisher's Summary

Mr. December: Duncan Patrick, CEO Scrooge.
His Objective: Lose the "bah humbug" attitude.
His Plan: Find the right (temporary) mistress.
A powerful businessman, Duncan didn't like ultimatums, unless he was making them. But the board demanded his public image change. When he encountered sweet kindergarten teacher Annie McCoy, he knew she'd make him look like a perfect angel, though it would take some devilish manipulation.
Once he had Annie playing his pretend mistress, Duncan needed to make her his real-life lover. Could a grouchy CEO cultivate the charm necessary to win the woman he'd almost destroyed?

Good Story...BAD Narration

I really enjoy Susan Mallery books but I will never purchase another book narrated by Gayle Hendrix. The story was great. It was cute and at the end I was smiling, which is exactly why I read this kind of romance book. However, the narrator was just awful! She shows no acting ability at all. Her voices barely differ from one character to the other and she not consistent with their voices. It makes it very hard to keep track of who's speaking sometimes. She is just flat through most of the book. I asked my 15 year old son to read a couple of pages aloud to make a point and he did a much better job. Doesn't someone listen to these people before they are hired to read? If I wrote a book, I would make sure that the narrator read the book to match how I have written the characters and are able to bring the book to life. The entire reason I get audio books is for the actor who reads it to bring it to life for me while I listen. This was no better than listening to the computer voice that reads the pages from my kindle.

What's with the narrarator?

I love almost all Susan Mallery books and this was no exception, but the narrarator was awful! She sounds like an old woman which meant that it was like having my grandma read me steamy sex scenes! Her various secondary charachters ended up having weird accents that did not go with the story. Read the book yourself, don't have Gayle Hendrix do it for you!!!
