Publisher's Summary

They called him the Demon Earl. They said he could do anything. Son of a rogue and a gypsy, Nicolas Davies was a notorious rake until a shattering betrayal left him alone and embittered in the Welsh countryside. Desperation drives quiet schoolmistress Clare Morgan to ask the Demon Earl to help save her village. Unwilling to involve himself in the problems of others, Nicholas sets an impossible price on his aid - only if Clare will live with him for three months, letting the world think the worst, will he intervene. Furiously, Clare accepts his outrageous challenge, and finds herself drawn into a glittering Regency world of danger and desire.
As allies, she and Nicholas fight to save her community. As adversaries, they explore the hazardous terrain of power and sensuality. And as lovers, they surrender to a passion that threatens the foundations of their lives.
Thunder and Roses was nominated for a RITA award and was a finalist for the RWA Golden Choice award for best audiobook of the year.

Great start to a series!

If you could sum up Thunder and Roses in three words, what would they be?

Well-told
Poignant
Entertaining


What did you like best about this story?

I enjoyed the characterization of every character in the book.


Which scene was your favorite?

The scene in which the heroine meets the hero for the first time is very memorable. I loved the way they conversed in that scene and how they went after one another.


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

Definitely, but as always what we want and what we can do is sometimes not one and the same. I managed to listen to it within three days.


Any additional comments?

I liked the narration a lot. I was actually glad that the narrator had only slight nuances between male and female voices. I hate when a male/female narrators butcher the dialogue by sounding 'cartoonish' as they try to sound male/female.

Job well done by Peter Bishop!

Sweet Welsh fantasy with Romany lore

Can unbelievable characters be engaging? If you suspend all disbelief, this is a fairly sweet romantic fantasy between two characters placed well out of time and drawn with a broad brush. Saved by Romany lore and the details of Welsh mining, the story pulled me along despite itself. Peter Bishop's reading tended to make all the characters sound juvenile, but then this isn't historical fiction, but pure romantic fiction, so it was just ok. Buy it on sale as I did.
