Typical writing by Laurens except that in this novel the plot is relatively thin, it's clear where we're headed almost from the first page, and it just plain takes too long to get there. I'm all for romance and sex, but when a single kiss lasts for 30 min of audio, that's overkill. The lead male is a little thin, and his path to falling for the heroine isn't fleshed out well. In contrast, the heroine is better developed, although she seems a little too adamant about the usual plot device of "aristocracy" and "commoner" falling in love. This book would be quite good as a Reader's Digest Condensed Book, but at it's present length it really drags.

In hindsight I really did enjoy the book and although all good love stories have their share of love scene's I got the impression the author was trying to give lessons! The scene in the middle of the book was soooo long and drawn out, I actually caught myself concentrating on something else completely- I actually forgot to listen!!
Other than that it was most entertaining and if I were to listen to it again I would fast forward the excessive scenes.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
I have to say, listening to this narrator makes you basically want to kill your self. He definitely drones and uses near enough the same voice for his male characters.
Change the narrator and you might be able to get past the first hour of listening

This is another book in the Cynster series and follows a familiar pattern where the hero and heroine are forced to spend time together to solve a mystery, while helped (or hindered) appropriately by their families and friends. This is standard fare by this author and as usual includes explicit sex as part of the story. If you like Laurens's style you'll like this book as well.
