I'm so glad I read this book before listening to the audio version. I love Stephanie Bond's books and loved this story when I first read it. I thought it was funny and sexy and couldn't wait to try the audiobook. But the narrator's horrid attempt at a male British accent made the hero sound more like a stuffy old English butler with absolutely no sex appeal rather than a former James Bond-type agent. I'm going to go back and read the book again just to get that image/sound out of my head! Other than ruining James Donovan for me, I thought Erin Mallon did okay and I would listen to other books read by her, as long as the hero isn't British!

Where does License to Thrill rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
License to Thrill was an okay story. It was not the best audio book I listened to and it was not the worst. It was a nice audible to listen to on a Saturday afternoon when I had to clean the house. Something that kept my interest with a light romance.
Which character – as performed by Erin Mallon – was your favorite?
I think Erin Mallon did a nice job with this book. I have listened to other books by Erin Mallon and have become a fan. Narration is a large part of an audio book experience. The only issue I had is that Erin Mallon has always done a nice job with male voices, but with the voice of James Donovan, he sounded like a British vampire at times.
Any additional comments?
This was a nice romance mixed with light suspense. Characters are likable. James Donavan came to San Francisco to do a job as a favor for a friend and finds himself interested in Kat McKray. Kat is a museum curator and is accused of stealing a letter from the museum and James Donovan being a retired ex-British agent takes it upon to help her and find out what Kat McCray is hiding and who took the letter.
