Aruncand o in schimb fara sa vrea in mijlocul pericolului caci un barbat misterios ale carui planuri sunt necunoscute o rapeste din Londra Acum depinde de faimosul Breckenridge sa se dovedeasca eroul adevarat pe care Heather l a cautat toata via. Why I Listened That s a uestion I asked myself numerous times throughout the book Seriously though I reviewed it for the Speaking of Audiobooks column at AAR but my review rant is just too long for the column So with permission I m posting it here Read on at your perilWhat it s about Viscount Breckenridge to the Rescue is the first book in the Cynster Brides series by Australian author Stephanie Laurens Heather Cynster daughter of Martin and Celia is abducted from a soiree in London The abduction is witnessed by Viscount Breckenridge a not friend of hers They don t get along he thinks she s too young for him there s a 10 year age gap and keeps his distance she thinks he considers her a child Breckenridge follows and tries to rescue her but Heather has discovered that the kidnappers wanted only a Cynster daughter not specifically Heather and given that she s being treated well they hired a maid for her for countenance she thinks it is best to stay in their clutches and extract information about the villain behind the scheme so as to protect her cousins and sisters Breckenridge goes along with it and follows keeping watch If that sounds like a flimsy excuse for a plot to you it would be because it is Given the amount of time Heather spends with the kidnappers she actually finds out precious little about them and even when she does it is in brief conversations and DAYS are going by She s not frightened or in any way traumatised it s the most pathetic kidnapping in the history of the activityWhat worked for me and what didn t Torturous Tedious Tautologous In audio Ms Laurens habit of describing everything at least three times is so very much annoying than in print In print I skim and I probably only read one word in three which means I can keep up with the gist of the story but do not want to hit something I found the same does not apply to audio I definitely wanted to hit somethingIf I had a dollar for every time Breckenridge was described sometimes within the same paragraph as the Foremost Rake of the Ton I d be able to buy myself a Kindle Possibly two Breckenridge or as I like to call him FRT is to make matters worse a very poor excuse for a rake Depending on what part of the book you are listening to he has either bedded countless ladies or not as many as everyone thinks However many ladies he has bedded in his experience most ladies don t take any active part in the process presumably they just lie there and think of England and only a few have shown anything like passion So when FRT eventually beds the heretofore virginal Heather Cynster he s overwhelmed stunned and amazed by her enthusiastic response she s active takes the initiative passionate In one scene when she s er going downtown he reflects that he didn t let ladies to that to him but she was different WHAT See BAD rake He should be booted out of the Society of Regency Rakes forthwith Besides anyone who knows anything about the Cynsters would know that if he was really that bad Devil and his ilk wouldn t let FRT within coo ee of pure HeatherThen there s Heather at the beginning she s given up searching in the traditional ballrooms of the ton for her hero She s decided not unlike her cousin Amanda from On a Wild Night to search in the racier environs to find the man who will sweep her off her feet Later when offered marriage by FRT due to the damage to her reputation she refuses and states that she had resigned herself to being a spinster and wants to look after homeless children so her reputation or lack of it doesn t matter Next thing she s contemplating how it turns out that FRT is her perfect hero if only he would love her HurThe villain is the worst villain in the history of villains We don t know his identity but after hiring people to abduct Heather he includes a maid for countenance on the journey Then when she does escape with FRT he follows not to get her back no He follows to make sure that the bounder who has her treats her well There is very little in the book about the motivations of the villain other than that he s only doing it because his mad ass mother has made some sort of suirly bargain with him which forces him to ruin the reputation of a Cynster daughter It is clear that he will be the bad guy in the series until he is eventually the hero of the final story in the trilogyAnyway Heather and FRT escape together but due to some ridiculous circumstances they are forced to continue on foot and this takes a number of days They head for Richard and Catriona Cynster s estate and on the way there the romance part of the book begins There is literally NOT SO MUCH AS A KISS before chapter 9 Their very first romantic encounter is also the full monty There follows 3 chapters of sexytimes each described in torturous purple prose three times Once FRT and Heather arrive at the Vale there ensues further torture for the listener FRT has vowed never to love and thereby be vulnerable to another Problem is he s already in love Okay so New vow He won t tell her how he feels because that would give her too much power over him Problem she s declared she won t marry a man who doesn t hold her in true affection which even he knows is code for love So he decides to show her his feelings by the power of his mighty wang of lovin Meanwhile she s decided she loves him but won t marry him unless he loves her too and tells her so She s having no success in drawing out a declaration and so decides to show him her true feelings with her magic hoo ha sexytimes Problem afterwards she thinks he was just pretending in order to get her to agree to the wedding and says no anyway when he proposes yet again It was enough to make me bang my head against a wall Repeatedly Over and over again Many times It takes an injury to FRT to sort matters out I won t give away what sort it s not uite pecked to death by pigeons TM Julia uinn but oh man over the topsville it isI decided to listen to this book because while I do grind my teeth these days at the triptych descriptions and the overuse of the word evoke in all of its many many iterations and all the him being him s and her being her s I have nevertheless really enjoyed some of Ms Laurens books Devil s Bride On a Wicked Dawn The Ideal Bride A Gentlemen s Honor But I m not a big fan of Simon Prebble s narration of her books He s a bit too overwrought for my taste I listened to two of the Black Cobra uartet which he narrated This one has a new to me narrator and I thought it was worth trying Sadly Matthew Brenher is the opposite of overwrought While he does use some expression in his voice there s no passion or excitement the intonation during a scene where they re sipping tea is the same as during the time they re traversing passion s landscape yes that is a direct uote I thought his voice for our hero FRT was uite good but Richard Scandal Cynster has developed an alarming Scottish accent in the 9 years he s been living there and Catriona from the sound of her has apparently taken up chain smoking and sometimes she slipped into a Yorkshire accent than a Scots one which was a bit disconcerting A brief appearance by Michael Anstruther Wetherby one of my favourite Laurens heroes and his wife Caro was even troubling Michael sounded prissy and rather like he d been castrated In fact at the end of each sentence he uttered I mentally added and where ARE my testicles anyway Caro sounded like she was in her 50 s and frumpy Heather s voice was okay but Mr Brenher does suffer from that common problem with male narrators where the female characters sound like they re men in drag Also I know that Ms Laurens can write an extremely long and convoluted sentence but I wondered whether Mr Brenher had done any pre reading before the narration performance There were these pauses in odd and unexpected places which made the sentences sound like they had just abruptly stopped It was so prevalent throughout the book it was very off putting Because I was tortured by the silly plot and the overwrought descriptions I had plenty of time to notice each occasionWhat else The book came in at than 15 hours of listening time Given that most of it was adjectives it could easily have been trimmed by half and nothing would have been lost of the plot what there was of itI ve decided I have to break up with Stephanie Laurens on audio I just can t bear it any It may be that I will try some in print where I can skim to my heart s content and therefore save a layer of enamel on my teeth but it won t be soon Hold On
