Publisher's Summary

Highly acclaimed, award-winning author of Act Like It Lucy Parker returns listeners to the London stage with laugh-out-loud wit and plenty of drama.
The play's the fling.
It's not actress Lily Lamprey's fault that she's all curves and has the kind of voice that can fog up a camera lens. She wants to prove where her real talents lie - and that's not on a casting couch, thank you. When she hears esteemed director Luc Savage is renovating a legendary West End theater for a lofty new production, she knows it could be her chance - if only Luc wasn't so dictatorial, so bad tempered, and so incredibly sexy.
Luc Savage has respect, integrity, and experience. He also has it bad for Lily. He'd be willing to dismiss it as a midlife crisis, but this exasperating, irresistible woman is actually a very talented actress. Unfortunately their romance is not only raising questions about Lily's suddenly rising career; it's threatening Luc's professional reputation. The course of true love never did run smooth. But if they're not careful, it could bring down the curtain on both their careers....

Good Story, Outstanding Narration

Would you listen to Pretty Face again? Why?

I'd listen to this book again, because the performance was so, so good. I'd want to soak it all in once more.


What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The way the heroine, Lily, was so prejudiced against because of her sexy voice and beautiful appearance was fascinating. You'd think that would only help one in an acting career, but it hurt her aspirations to act on the stage. The least interesting bits were the sex scenes, unfortunately.


What does Morag Sims bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Morag Sims perfectly captured Lily's voice — high, breathy, sexy... and intelligent. It was masterful. It was wonderful to hear her words out loud, since voice is such an important part of the story.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

No part "moved" me in the truest sense of the word, but I loved the moments where people realized how wrong they'd been to judge Lily before getting to know her.


Any additional comments?

I truly wish the author had included more information about the play at the center of the story. I also wish Lily's first public stage performance, with all of the emotion behind it, had been more detailed.

Five Stars

Loved the narration - great accents - and the story. Bit of a slow start, but didn't take away from the enjoyment.
