Summary

From The New York Times bestselling Jane Feather, author of To Kiss a Spy and Kissed by Shadows, comes a deliciously sensual tale of intrigue and temptation…
The last thing Lord Nicholas Kincaid expected to see in the gloom of a London tavern was a vision of loveliness. And when she led him to a bedchamber with a come-hither smile, there was no question of resisting - until he realized the lying wench meant to render him senseless so the landlord could rob him blind! That's how the handsome lord made the acquaintance of Miss Polly Wyat, a ravishing beauty he soon decided would make the perfect spy. Unwittingly, she would infiltrate the inner circle at the king's court. But when Nicholas sets out to bind Polly with chains of passion, he'll find himself hard-pressed not to be bewitched…or to fall in love.

Absolutely wonderful - I loved it!

What made the experience of listening to Venus the most enjoyable?

The story was brilliant and the narrator was excellent, she really took me straight to the action with how she read.

Any additional comments?

Can't wait for the next one!! I've already bought it!!

Mispronounciations abound!

The frustration of listening to a fabulous narrator mispronounce so many words in such a ridiculous way is almost funny! It felt at times as if a poor student read aloud and didn't know the words! How can such a narrator not even know how to say 'chemise’....(it isn't chemist without a clear T , after all..) Its absurd! Does no one Edit? Verify? Proof? C'mon.... Who chooses narrators without knowing they can't Pronounce Common words?? Do they interviww them? Even a script to read to confirm the ability of the narrator before hiring could avoid this? Grrrrr.....
I do like Gemma's voice, delivery, cadence, male vs female voices, etc...but this time it was....foolish?... Ugh!

Ignoring the one complaint I have to applaud Jane Feathers writing, as usual. The Pygmalion-esque theme was interesting in a weird way. Although this one was not my my favorite JF books and I won't rush to get the next one but all in all a typical regency period romance with most of what you expect from this author.

Creditworthy? Yes if you can handle all the mispronounced words.
Heat factor? Very low. SomeSome very explicit moments...but that's about it.
Tears? Not really...
Laughter? A little...
