Publisher's Summary

Tormented by the deaths of his wife and child, Griffin Blackmoor spends his days drowning his grief in whiskey. But when a bullet that was meant for him kills his best friend, Griffin makes a promise to the dying man that will thrust him back into London Society - and into the path of the one woman who could make his life worth living again.
The daughter of a drunkard, Lady Anne Carmichael swore she would never love a man like Griffin Blackmoor. But when he rescues her during her darkest hour, Anne cannot ignore the effect Griffin's haunted eyes - or his soul-stirring kiss - have on her guarded heart. He is everything she never wanted. So why does his love feel like exactly what she needs?

Great narration, weak story

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The storyline was predictable and not very well executed. The hero was too involved in having his own pity-party and the heroine was a stereotypical damsel in distress. The one thing in the book I thought was well done was the treatment of the hero's alcoholism and his recovery.

What was most disappointing about Laura Landon’s story?

Unfortunately, it was disappointing overall. I don't mind predictable or "been done before" provided the execution is good or there are other redeeming features, like compelling characters or good dialogue... both of which were sadly lacking here.

Which character – as performed by James Langton – was your favourite?

Thank goodness for James Langton - he's the sole reason I kept listening! Griff (the hero) became attractive in Mr Langton's hands (voice!) and all his character voices were appropriate and well-differentiated.

Do you think A Risk Worth Taking needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Sadly, I think the book itself needs a re-write, let alone a follow up!

Any additional comments?

Loved the narration - Mr Langton has a very attractive and soothing voice, and I'd happily listen to him anytime. Sadly, the story itself was lacklustre and not even the excellent narration could save it.
