Publisher's Summary

Jeannette Boucher, a young French beauty from a family left penniless by the revolution, must marry against her will to save them all from ruin. But almost immediately after the vows are spoken, she learns that her old English husband is impotent - and in his desire for an heir, he plans to compromise her in the worst way. Determined to escape such a fate, she stows away on one of His Majesty’s frigates. But a woman alone is in constant danger.
To Lieutenant Treynor, honor means everything…. Born a bastard to a wayward marquise, Lieutenant Crawford Treynor was given to a poor farmer to raise and was maltreated until he ran away to join the Royal Navy. Treynor is determined to prove he’s as good as any other man and rise to captain his own frigate. But once he finds Jeannette aboard The Tempest he must decide whether to return her to the man he knows would abuse her - or risk everything, even his life, to keep her safe.

OK Story but the narrating is awful

What would have made The Bastard better?

A different narrator. She was absolutely terrible, over emphasising when it wasn't necessary, the timing of her speech was dire.

Would you recommend The Bastard to your friends? Why or why not?

Not with this narrator.

How could the performance have been better?

Get rid of the over performing narrator

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Bastard?

I only listened to an hour of the book and couldn't listen to the annoying narrator anymore, so I couldn't comment on this point

Any additional comments?

Does no one listen to these audio books before they go out for public purchase. I cannot believe that I am the only one that has a problem with the way this story was being read!
