What A Rogue Wants
The last time St. Now, three years later, he has located Sarah and is determined she pay for her crimes. But the woman he finds is far from what he expected. I'd buy it again! Could not stop listening! Julie Johnstone is a master story teller and Tim Campbell a gifted narrator. I'm hooked and can't wait to start the next book.
One of my favorites!

Who was your favorite character and why? I loved the character Madelaine, who was not like the ordinary lady we usually read of, she did not like embroidery she loved archery! Beautiful voice perfect for this book! Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting? Any additional comments? Johnstone nicely blended her characters into her suspense.
It was very well written! Great characters, a tight plot, an atmospheric historical setting! I recommend this historical romance as an audio, especially if you like stories set in that era. I liked the epilogue at the end! I will be looking for her next audio in this series. I enjoyed the story nut sometimes the characters were a little dense.
Good listen though. This was the first book I've read listened to by this author. The story was entertaining. I like the time period and "the King's spies" always make for an exciting genre. Kudos to the author. However, there were numerous distractions that should have been caught by a good editor or even proofreader.
People are hung not hanged. And there was constant repetition. One word that always popped out at me was "material. Why not use the name of the material or another word. I found the narrator easy to listen to but I found fault with the production. What I assume to be do-over sentences were very obvious. The sound quality was very different.
Like I said, these were all distractions from an entertaining story. I did expect Lady Grace to pop up in some sinister manner. I hope to listen to another book by Julie Johnstone. I think someone who is retired and has a lot of time to kill. The book makes time drag. I was at the 6 hour mark and thought I had been listening all day. Has What a Rogue Wants turned you off from other books in this genre? I don't think one bad book is indicative of an entire genre.
This question is not really relevant for a review and should be changed to something more meaningful. Yes, I think the story was very good and had a lot of potential. There was just a lot of unnecessary details and themes that made a good story overly complicated for no apparent reason.
Sometime a character would have internal dialogue and then say the same thing. It just did not make sense as to why the internal dialogue. Also a scene like the one where you are provided with the details on a "spy code" that is being used for secret messages.

I am not sure why , as there is never a scene where there is a note the reader has to decode. It just seemed like a filler. I really like this author, but am not sure if I will read the other books in the series. Your audiobook is waiting….
