Description

A sensual, erotic story with the rich texture of Regency romance with the spice of erotica.

Margaret Seymour is bored by the stifling constraints of society dictating her behavior as a debutante in search of a husband. Her prospects are promising by the standards of London society, yet, not one of them causes her heart to flutter, or her head to fill with scintillating, forbidden fantasies. Those feelings are reserved for Camden Rycroft, Duke of Avonleah - a man who isn't even aware of her existence.

While attending a scandalous Vauxhall Gardens masquerade, Margaret finds herself in the duke's arms. His promise of a night of pleasure is tempting, but is it worth it when Avonleah is a known rake notorious for his short attention span and avoidance of marriage?

Camden Rycroft is intrigued by the masked vixen he encounters in the Gardens. After one night with her leaves him hungry for more, his desire for her turns into a fiery obsession. Despite the scandal that could ensue from their affair, he finds himself unable to extract himself from a situation destined to end in pain. When faced with losing Margaret to a potential husband, will he rise to the occasion, or risk living without her?

So freaking HOT!!

Let me begin by saying that I had never dipped my toes into the historical/regency pools before this audio. Umm, wow! What’s a great way to dip my toes into the genre! I was expecting something very tame and demure, but this audiobook was hot! There was so much steam I couldn’t see straight. And I loved it. The chemistry and passion between Camden and Maggie was electric and sizzled from the beginning to the very last minute. The story was great. The audiobook almost couldn’t move fast enough for me because I needed to know what would happen next. I freaking loved Camden! He was a total a-hole and I loved to hate him and in the end I just plain loved him. I also think he has the best proposal in the history of ever! Narration is where this story got knocked down a star. Beatrice Pendergast is a fine narrator, she’s actually quite good, but her voice didn’t match the story. She simply sounds much to old to fit the characters and kept drawing me out from the story. Still, the story was so well done and so hot that it pulled me through. Despite its mismatched narration this is one hot story and I’d definitely recommend this audio. 4 Stars.

Narration horrible!

Narration was awful. I couldn’t get passed it. It ruined what may have been a good book.

Ballroom erotica.

l listened to audio version of this book. Narration was good except for some male voices. Didn't distract from the good story, though. Loved all the heat. Sex scenes, of which there is many, were done very well. If you like alot of steam, this book is good.

Duke finds love with innocent heroine

I do enjoy Victoria Vale's books, They are naughty and quite sensual, Although Masquerade is an enjoyable read, the theme is predictable. Our innocent Margaret desires passion before she is expected to marry for convenience. When she meets the Duke of Avonleah at a masquerade, she discovers more than passion with him. Camden Rycroft can't forget the mysterious woman that melted in his arms for an unforgettable evening. Can this beguiling woman be the one he's needed and be his match in every way? Great story, but the narrator, Beatrice Pendergast, sounded to mature as Maggie. Remember, she's a debutante. It was like grandma reading me an erotic bedtime story, attempting to be a smoky voice for Maggie, a strained masculine voice for Camden. She was convincing as the Dowager Duchess, though. That being said, I had to chuckle over her impassioned erotic voices. She gave with such enthusiasm. All right!

Narration that makes you run for the hills

Could not take more than 30 minutes of this nonsense. When I am able to get Beatrice Pendergast's voice out of my brain, I will give the physical book a try in light of the reviews.

Love smut books!

This book is not for the faint of heart! Other reviewers didn’t care for the narrator but I found her engaging. I enjoyed this book so thoroughly I wish it hadn’t ended. Cannot wait to listen to the rest of the series. Victoria Vale is a new author to me first listening to The Villian Duology & the sequels, they were all amazing. I am ridiculously happy to have found this author!

WTH??

Omgsh this is the worst narration I've ever heard! First of all, the narrator is WAY too old for a book such as this. I wanted to finish the story because I love Victoria Vale, but it was nearly impossible. It got to the point that all I could do was laugh at the ridiculousness of her voice, especially when she was reading Camden trying to sound sexy/romantic to Maggie. The narration was enough to put me off listening to the next two books in this series. I'll just read them on my own. Was this worth a credit? Based on the narrator's voice alone, I would say absolutely not.

Good Story - horrendous narration

Yikes! This performance had me baffled (and cringing). It’s such a huge difference to the impressive Victoria Vale/ Darcy Stark combo, I’m a bit bewildered by the difference in quality. I suppose we learn as we go...

Way over the top

Victoria Vale writes a good story however the narration of this one ruined this book for me. I actually stopped listening, kept seeing it in my list and finally forced myself to finish it just to get it out of my library. I just tried to ignore the obnoxious narration and muddled through.

Wrong Narrator!!

I have never heard a female narrator do the male character better than the female character. Voice is too shrill when performing the female character.
