Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Mary Jo Putney has claimed two RITAs, two Romantic Times Career Achievement Awards and four Golden Leaf Awards. Her mastery of the historical romance is evident in every word of Nowhere Near Respectable. Damian Mackenzie is an incorrigible gambler just honorable enough to save Lady Kiri Lawford from dangerous smugglers. That does not, however, mean he has any desire to return her romantic interest - until he learns Kiri’s not exactly the prim and proper lady society expects her to be.

Disappointing

What would have made Nowhere Near Respectable better?

A different narrator

What could Mary Jo Putney have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

I love Mary Jo Putney's books. However I will never listen to any of her books again if she uses Tim Gerard Reynols to perform them. Come on Ms. Putney you've been in the business long enough to know what your fans want.

Would you be willing to try another one of Tim Gerard Reynols’s performances?

Horrible. I will never listen to him narrate another book. He has a beautiful, deep voice yet he doesn't use that talent to make the main male character sexy or appealing. In fact, he gives the men a higher vocal range than the women. Plus, Ms. Putney wrote this book with a witty banter between the two main character but Mr. Reynols ruined it. He narrates to slow and doesn't bring fun banter into his tones or any emotion. The men sound like feminine characters and the women sound like they're all men. On top of that Mr. Reynols gets his accents so mixed up, one has no clue these characters are from England. Mr. Reynols does a good Scottish accent for the men but once again any women sound like bull frogs.

Any additional comments?

I hope this is forwarded to Ms. Putney & Mr. Reynols. This could have been a fun, enticing story, but the narration truly ruined it. And who directed this. Seriously!! Mr. Reynols has potential, but he has work to do and the director of the narration should be fired.

My kind of Hero

As usual Ms. Putney has produced an excellent historical novel with good strong characters and an interesting believable story. Even these are romance novels, the romance doesn't overwhelm the story.

MacKensey is a realistic hero who never steps out of reality but functions with all the faults of a real guy.

Mr. Reynols is not Simon Prebble, but his narration is decent.
