Nice voice to start with which should have made listening to a good story enjoyable but when words like 'quay' 'ton' 'Covent Garden' & 'chaise lounge' can't be pronounced correctly, it is just terrible!
This performance gets worse and worse as you go on...more words wrong and a ridiculous Cockney accent creeps in for the most inappropriate character. This is a regency period story, if it's going to be read by an American, they shouldn't pretend they can speak with an English accent and they should be taught the pronunciation of the places and common era appropriate words.
This is a good historical novel set in Regency London. I loved the characters and the plot however the story's narrator was annoying. The word "quay" is pronounced "key" and not "kway". She seemed to have trouble with some of the more local British pronunciations so must not have been a Brit. That said this was a good book with some erotic scenes but they were all part of the plot so were not gratuitous. I would highly recommend this novel.
I loved loved loved Her Husband's Harlot! Both the story and the performance were first-rate. This is a different kind of Regency romance (definitely erotic and not for those wanting a sweet Regency), with characters that had me rooting for their happy ending all the way through.
There was so much I loved about the story (the steamy scenes and sexual tension between the hero and heroine, the humor, the heart-warming moments). There were lots of really funny scenes with dialogue that just sparkled. The narrator did a terrific job of doing all the voices, female and male, and the accent was spot on. I hope there is a sequel!

If you are listening when working or driving, make sure you have plenty of time to hear BIG dollops of this one. There is an excellent chance you'll have a very hard time putting it aside to do other things in your life. The narrator, Erin Mallon, did an excellent job with a difficult character in the naive young wife who has unwittingly turned her husband away from their marriage bed. She works to woo him back and does so, but the path is twisted and dark. He is a grand character, too, full of personal doubt and misgivings, but with a sense of honor that is truly his own. A wonderful story, well enacted. Looking for more!
