Read from September 24 to October 03, 2012

On audio, narrated by Anne Flosnik who did a creditable job, but her voice for the hero, Jared Chillhurst sounded so gravelly all the time, as if she was trying to give it this smoldering, passion infused inflection, but to my ears it just made him sound older than he's really supposed to be, IMHO. Maybe it's just me.

Olympia, the heroine is another one of Quick's learned, bluestocking types who is clueless when it comes to social niceties because she's so wrapped up in her studies. No shy, wilting lily, once she makes up her mind she wants to bed Jared, she has no fears or compunctions, she could care less what it might do to her reputation if anyone finds out. Other than this lack of discretion, I liked her and her three young nephews. I found the storyline amusing at times, and it was an easy listen, though not a lot of depth to it, still I enjoyed it. Full review later.
