    Description

    Lady Arabella Blydon has beauty and a brain, and she's tired of men who can see only one without the other.

    When a suitor tells Arabella he's willing to overlook her appalling bluestocking tendencies on account of her looks and fortune, she decides to take a break from the Marriage Mart. During an extended stay in the country, she never expects to meet Lord John Blackwood, a wounded war hero who intrigues her like no other man.

    Lord John has lived through the worst horrors of war, but nothing could have been as terrifying to his tormented heart as Lady Arabella. She is intoxicating, infuriating, and she makes him want to live again. Suddenly he's writing bad poetry and climbing trees in the pitch-dark night just so he can dance with her as the clock strikes midnight. And even though he knows he can never be the sort of man she deserves, he can't help wanting her. But when the harsh light of day replaces the magic of midnight, can this tormented soul learn to love again?

    ©1995 Julie Cotler (P)2016 HarperCollins Publishers

    good Julia Quinn story but harrible narrator,

    If you could sum up Dancing at Midnight in three words, what would they be?

    change the narrator

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    main characters were great but the narrator ruined the book. I went out and purchased a hard copy so I could finish it.

    Would you be willing to try another one of Lucy Rayner’s performances?

    no, I purchased two books by this performer and I want to return them. I would rather read the book myself than listen to her. If anyone chooses to listen to JQ's books narrated by Rosalyn Landor then you would understand what I'm talking about.
    So please Ms. Quinn no more performances by Lucy Rayner.
    I'm sorry to be so harsh but this needed to be said.

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If the narrator was Rosalyn Landor

    Any additional comments?

    Ms. Quinn, as a loyal reader of your fine books please pay more attention to who you or Audible hires to read them...:(

    The narrator

    I would not recommend this book. Julia Quinn is one of my favorite.
    I would invest on a different narrator and re release this audiobook.
    The narrator is overly dramatic when playing the part of the lead. I am being kind with this review.

    who let her narrate?!

    the "preformance" of this was so over the top, obnoxious that I had to give up and buy the Kindle version. it was painful to listen to and changed the entire tone of the story. just terrible.

    Nor as good as others by this author

    I couldn't wait for this story to be over. The basic story was great, and I laughed at times. The accents grinded on my nerves, though... all of the men's voices were mostly drawn out too slow and the women's voices were so bubbly and happy sounding even when they were talking about something bad. Belle's voice is like nails on a chalkboard, even in the first book. A whole book about her with this voice made me want it to hurry and be done. Dunford's voice is so slow and drawn out that I'm really thinking about not listening to the next book at all since it's all about him.

    Squeeze

    Good story, redundant squeezing (every book, every body part), funny, not as long in the tooth (as usual).
    Poor narrator keeps us hostage thru the entire series ❣️

    good story

    bad narration. Rayner didn't know which character was speaking. or when the story telling began. her voice had inflection when it shouldn't and there was just no getting through it. I need to send it back. get the Kindle edition and leave this version alone.

    Was this from her early days? Wasn't up to par.

    I have really enjoyed a lot of Julia Quinns books. Her other series have an assortment of supporting characters which are usually quirky to help the reader get through the slower parts of the books

    I found this book was lacking in many things, especially the funny stuff. Plus the holes in the plot, ugh. 3 gunshots are exchanged in the middle of a posh neighborhood, yet nobody seems to talk about it? You'd think it would be all over town with people speculating and gossiping. Plus, how many times do the characters have impulsively do the stupidest things in life threatening situations. I kept asking myself, is this a romance novel or a cheezy horror book.

    Finally, the narration is nothing compared to the reader for other series. she read everything so emphatically, like is was a play and they had to reach the back rows. I've definitely heard worse, but she just doesn't compare with the other one ( Can't remember her name).

    I may listen to the last book for this series if it goes on the romance package list, but I'm not paying for it.

    The Reader!!!

    This could be a very funny book - however, the reader!!!
    She's trying too hard and thus, made it worst!!
    I only want to hear how the story end - dreadful to listen to her!!
    Sorry, not my reader.

    Audible should re-record with another narrator

    The story is charming but the narrator is unbearable. All of the women characters speak in these prissy sing song cadences that is hard to take. Unless audible re-records this title, skip the audiobook and read this one the old fashioned way.

    Britischer Akzent mit amerikanisch-englischen Untertönen

    Mir hat die Vortragsweise in dem Hörbuch der ansonsten großartigen Schriftstellerin Julia Quinn überhaupt nicht gefallen. Die Satzmelodie, besonders bei der weiblichen Hauptfigur, wurde überkandidelt und völlig übertrieben gesprochen. Manchmal kam ein amerikanischer (!) Akzent durch. Auch wurde das Wort „scones“ wie „scons“ ausgesprochen, was ihm eine ganz andere Bedeutung beimisst. Für mich gibt es vorerst keine Regency-Hörbücher von audible mehr, vor allem, da sie anscheinend von derselben Sprecherin vorgelesen werden. Mein subjektives Urteil: keine Empfehlung und schon gar keinen einzigen Stern (was bei den Möglichkeiten zur Bewertung leider überhaupt nicht wählbar ist).
