What did you love best about The Viscount Who Loved Me?
The interactions between Kate Sheffield and Lord Anthony Bridgerton.
What did you like best about this story?
When the wealthy Lord Anthony decides to take a wife he chooses Kate's sister; the beautiful, petite "Diamond" of the London season. Kate has set herself up as her sister's protector against the rakes and undesirables who are vying for the beauty's hand. She is especially against the charming Viscount Anthony Bridgerton reported to be the biggest rake in London. Their interchange is hilarious; she steps on his feet, and he steps on her hand.
What about Rosalyn Landor’s performance did you like?
Everything, she is an excellent narrator.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I laughed out loud on several occasions.
Any additional comments?
After the poor choices in entertainment I've made of late "The Viscount Who Loved Me" was a pleasant surprise.

This was a good story a great follow up to the duke who loved me. It is the story about the oldest of the siblings. The story was funny and a page turner. Well worth the credit.

This is the first of Julia Quinn's books I ever read and one of the first 'modern' historical romances I ever read about a decade or so ago, when I was just starting to read the genre. As a result, I have a bit of a soft spot for it, but that's not surprising, considering it's a terrific book.
It's a classic enemies-to-lovers/compromised-into-marriage story and remains one of my favourite HRs and one of my favourites of the Bridgerton series (it's up there with "When He Was Wicked"). I admit that I haven't read it for some time, and I have forgotten bits, so this new audio was a fantastic reminder.
The relationship between Anthony and Kate is brilliantly done - the sexual chemistry just sizzles between them right from the start, and the author does a superb job of showing both characters falling head-over-heels with each other while trying to maintain their outward animosity.
I loved that Anthony is so family-oriented; there are so many dysfunctional families in romance that it's refreshing to find one that isn't. He's also, quite simply, sex-on-legs.
Rosalyn Landor does an incredible job in the audio version. It's a given that she's technically superb - she's always spot on when it comes to things like differentiation and pacing - but where she scores over practically ever other narrator of historical romance is that she 'gets' it like no-one else. The way she brings the emotional content of the story to the fore so vividly always amazes me and I had a lump in my throat several times while listening to this one.
I'm sure I don't need to convince any reader of HR that this is a fabulous book, or anyone who listens to romance audios regularly that the narration is outstanding.
But I still had to shout about it, because it's just THAT good.

Call me a purist, but a period story set in England really should have vaguely correct grammar & vocabulary. Annoyingly although this series of stories are fun, the grammatical errors "look out the window" and what sounds like wrong word usage or st least too modern "bum" just grates.
I haven't looked up the author who is new to me, but I wouldn't be surprised if she's American. Still I'm always surprised that things like these aren't picked up by sub-editors, editors, printers etc..!!! Such a shame as such minor errors create a disproportionate annoyance.
