What the Stubborn Viscount Desires
What the Stubborn Viscount Desires | Sandra Sookoo
2 posts | 2 read
Jonathan Banshire, Viscount Trewellain, has become a bitter, sarcastic lord and against anything remotely smacking of romance. Though engaged to a woman whose hand he'd won in a game of cards years ago, he hasn't thought of her in years. But he's also a king's agent, and as his duty to the Crown, he's being sent to Spain to track down a missing peer. He goes to escape his personal life. Miss Sophia Wickham is tired of men deciding her future. She's on a mission to live her life on her terms, but can't due to an ambiguous engagement to the Viscount Trewellain. Determined to gain her freedom, she sneaks onboard the ship intent to have Jonathan release her from that old promise. When he refuses in a fit of pique, she's stuck as a stowaway, bound to the one man she can't stand. In Madrid, they search for not only the missing lord, but also stolen Spanish crown jewels and an ancient relic. Through crashing a glittering ball to hunting down clues to exploring the hidden catacombs and caves beneath Barcelona, the unlikely pair comes to an understanding. Vulnerable and trapped, truths are revealed as well as the fragile state of their hearts. But machinations of a madman bent on revenge could destroy a budding romance, and when the specter of death makes an appearance, Jonathan must finally decide what it is he desires the most.

I was able to listen to this #Audiobook for free via #Audible, because I met the female narrator, Anneliese Rennie, at the local #MittenLitten #RochesterWriters Conference last month. She had a wealth of knowledge about the craft of creating audiobooks and how the narrators put in six hours of prep work for each finished hour of the novel. She performed the female POV well, with distinct voices for each character.

LiteraryinLititz It‘s cool to hear about what goes into making an audiobook! Thanks for sharing! 5d

Beautifully written and well crafted story of danger, a mission for the Crown searching for Spain's crown jewels and for a missing lord, suspense, mystery, romance and finding a HEA. High-octane action, steamy passion, and fast moving story, with a suspenseful track from England to Spain to France. All the elements are brought together in a climactic, emotional and dramatic ending. Powerful, compelling with edge of your seat drama.
