I enjoyed reading this book (and its two sequels) and really liked listening to the audio book. Gildart Jackson is a new narrator to me, and I adore his voice. I could fall in love with Edward de Lacey just by listening to him. He does, however, need to tweak his heroine a bit; she sounds like a middle-aged spinster aunt rather than a passionate half-Italian young English woman. I think that male narrators should avoid using a falsetto for female voices and just strive for a softer tone. He sometimes talked . . . too . . . deliberately, especially when voicing a female character.
That said, I highly recommend this audio book, especially if you're looking for a steamy, but not crude, read. Edward is just the kind of lover most women desire and Jackson's rendition of Chapters 16, 17, and 18 is lady porn at its finest.

Mixed emotions on this one. The story was great! Two separate plot lines - three if we include the romance - and interesting characters made this an enjoyable "read" but since I listened to an audiobook I have to take points off for the narration. Many points! The reader did a terrible job with Francesca's dialogue. He made her sound like an 80 year old dowager. I found it VERY distracting. I liked the way Francesca was a strong independent woman. Always a positive in a book, as far as I'm concerned. Edward was a good character, too, and I liked the fact that he and his brothers seemed to get along quite well. I'm looking forward to reading their stories.
