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.

What did you like best about this story?
The plot is good. Not quite in the league of Georgette Heyer, but good a good adventure. I I enjoy the characters being carried through the books and the development of the characters. Could do with less explicit sex. It quite spoils the flow of the story and feels contrived I would rather leave something to the imagination.
I do sense a desire to entwine modern feminism and human rights into the stories which pushes the credibility ( schools for wayward aristocrats, and indian dukes). Overall ,the story is good but does not need this level of sex to sell - Despite the latter, this is light escapism which I enjoyed and think is worthy of more than the sex image.
Have you listened to any of Tim Gerard Reynols’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Any additional comments?
Please dont put the explicit sex into the film.
