Publisher's Summary

Elissande Edgerton is a desperate woman, a virtual prisoner in the home of her tyrannical uncle. Only through marriage can she claim the freedom she craves. But how to catch the perfect man?
Lord Vere is used to baiting irresistible traps. As a secret agent for the government, he's tracked down some of the most devious criminals in London, all the while maintaining his cover as one of society's most harmless - and idiotic - bachelors. But nothing can prepare him for the scandal of being ensnared by Elissande. Forced into a marriage of convenience, Elissande and Vere are each about to discover that they're not the only ones with a hidden agenda. With seduction their only weapon - and a dark secret from the past endangering both their lives - can they learn to trust each other even as they surrender to a passion that won't be denied?

The title is SO random!!

I throughly enjoyed this book! The title and summary somehow put me off for a time. Eventually I gave in to curiosity and got it and am glad of it.
I thought the idiot premise sounded....well.... idiotic! But it totally worked. I could 'see' all the colorful characters and heard them as well. The mystery was a good one and the telling of it very well done.
I usually prefer a story taking place much earlier in history. I'm very partial to a time before phones and railways and even electricity and telegraphs. Yet I can safely say that the historical dates of this romance did not hinder my enjoyment at all, which is saying something!

NARRATOR : Wonderful! I enjoy Kate Reading and wish she did more. Her voices are distinct and the subtleties contained in each are expert! Phrasing, cadence, speed, all perfect. I heard the story and people in it and not her, which is how it should be! Her delivery is realistic. There are no mouthy sounds, pronounciation errors, or distracting facets to her performance. She has become one of my favorites.


HEAT FACTOR?: Steamy, but very appropriately to the story without drawing it out or being vulgar.

I love this book..

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

Any additional comments?

I first read this book February 11th 2013 and reviewed it the very next day. I loved this book so much that when I saw it on audible I had to get it and listen to it to see if it was as good as just reading it. Well, it was still wonderful.
I still loved Vere/Penny and Elissande, Freddy, the best brother ever, and Angelica, Mrs. Douglas, Holbrooke and the very patient Detective Nevinson. I have to tell you, Mr. Edmund Douglas was just a murderous creep.
An all-around wonderful love story with great characters and some great sex.

As to the narrator: Ms. Reading did a terrific job and I will definitely listen to her again.

Why did my audiobook skip?

What would have made His at Night better?

It would have improved matters a little if it didn't skip so much although I have to admit the story was quite ridiculous. I simply cannot believe that the main character managed dupe his friends, family, staff etc. for so long. Also author didn't make it clear when the accident happened - the whole business surrounding his accident and when he made his choice to act like an idiot around his family was unclear.

What was most disappointing about Sherry Thomas’s story?

The storyline also the unsympathetic hero and the romance in general was a bit of a bore.

Have you listened to any of Kate Reading’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Yes. Kate always does well.

What character would you cut from His at Night?

would like a better hero. Also could have done without the secondary romance between hero's brother and his childhood friend
