Publisher's Summary

The irresistible Pembroke Palace Series continues when a baby arrives on the palace doorstep, and the man deemed responsible is the most degenerate and rakish young lord of the manor, Lord Vincent Sinclair.
Cassandra Montrose cannot deny that she lost her head a year ago when she was whisked out of a London ballroom by the most desirable man she'd ever met. But now she is disgraced and desperate, and the father of her illegitimate child, Lord Vincent Sinclair, is engaged to another.
When Lord Vincent learns of his unbreakable bond with the passionate lover he knew for only one night a year ago, he soon finds himself drawn in. But with his inheritance at stake, he must marry the woman his father has approved. Perhaps there is a way to be with Lady Cassandra again, and return to the magic of their unforgettable night together. Will Lady Cassandra be willing? Or will her unshakable pride keep her from Vincent's bed forever?

It was barely okay, nothing memorable.

This story was not as good as the previous story, In My Wildest Fantasies, at all. I really enjoyed that story. this one was just okay, kinda dull really. Nothing memorable happened. The hero and heroine were just sort of boring.

The story line and plot were lacking terribly. Like another reviewer said a one night stand ends up in Baby Mama Drama, of the boring kind.

There was a lot of dialogue so that was good. There was a couple of nicely written sex scenes and that was good too. Nothing erotic, just nicely written.

As for the narration, Well.... to be honest I am not a big fan of Rosalyn Landor's narrations. Her reading voice is meh and she sounds to much like the men's characters voices, she is just sort of boring and annoying to listen too. Not really emotional and all the men always sound the same exactly. I don't dislike her like some narrators but if I had a choice it would not be her narrating that is for sure.

I may still listen to the next book in this series, When a Stranger Loves Me, since I did enjoy the first book. I don't give up easily unless it is completely atrocious. This was not atrocious just a little boring.

Lord Vincent Sinclair Second Son of the Mad Duke

What made the experience of listening to The Mistress Diaries the most enjoyable?

Lord Vincent was a renowned Rake who always let it be known he was not marriage material. So, when he picked up a beautiful widow at a ball, although having the most sensational night in his life, he left before she awoke the next morning. He didn't see her again for over a year when she came to his residence, Pembroke Palace.


Who was your favorite character and why?

Lady Cassandra Montrose. Although having high morals fell under the spell of Lord Vincent and was unable to resist the charming son of a Duke. Repercussions from the night she spent with Lord Vincent caused Cassandra to be driven from her uncles home and forced into poverty.


Which character – as performed by Rosalyn Landor – was your favorite?

She portrays most of her characters equally well.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes.


Any additional comments?

Although the mad Duke's family was dysfunctional, when faced with being disinherited if ALL brothers did not marry before Christmas, they pulled together to insure their brothers did not lose their inheritance because of them. They begrudgingly complied to the Dukes demands. The kicker; the brides must meet the Duke's approval. He chose the beautiful, self-absorbed, vindictive daughter of a Duke for Vincent's bride.
