Sometimes you're in the mood for a quickie listen

I really enjoy historical romances and I was looking for a short story (novella). This was exactly was I was looking for, a short and sizzling hot story that mostly centers in the romance of our hero and heroine. It's fast paced due to how short it is but it's intense and complete. I also liked the fact that these were normal people. No dukes, count, king, nothing.., Just two people falling in love and struggling with poverty, temptation and the different life struggles. It also has a mild Christmas theme that I enjoyed.

A good story can only get even better with good narration. Rosalyn Landor is my favorite historical romance narrator and she did an excellent job with this story as always. Her male voices and accents are impeccable. She adds so much emotion to her characters that you can really live the story. Highly recommended for historical romance fans who are in the mood for a quickie... Listen.

Sweetly average

Setting: London 1822
Genre: Romance
This is an uncomplicated novella, which is a prequel to a series. I haven't read any of the series so I don't know how well it fits.
Lavinia Spencer works in her family's lending library. William White is a clerk who has a subscription. For a year he has come in for books on financial management, and to lust after Lavinia. Lavinia has been sighing over William for the past year. When he has occasion to take the relationship further, he does not hesitate to take it. The story is a sweet little journey, with side trips up a couple of sub-plots, to a nice HEA.
Narration was wonderful because Roslyn Landor.
