Publisher's Summary

With her husband's dying words, "My marchioness has it," the Marchioness of Huntingdon is thrown into a nightmare of intrigue and danger. But even those who are holding her brother ransom can't force her to do the impossible - hand over a necklace she doesn't have.

Major Samuel Bennett believes the newly widowed Lady Claire Huntingdon is a traitor. He intends to get the necklace he's convinced she has, before sending her to the gallows. But when he meets the captivating widow, he discovers that nothing is as it seems.

Claire knows she can't trust anyone, but she isn't given a choice when Major Bennett arrives, demanding she give him the necklace. And it isn't until she's forced to put her life in his hands that she realizes it isn't only her life she's in danger of losing - but her heart as well.

    "Good plot"

    Enjoyed the story, even if it did seem excessively drawn out. Sentiments were expressed repeatedly; Ms. Landon is somewhat skilled in the art of tautology.

    "Spies and romance and such...."

    Very fast paced, action filled. historical romantic spy story.

    The heroine endured much, but fought not to be a victim. A lot of serious issues were address, such as love, honor, duty, honesty and trust, but this was done so skillfully and effortlessly you were kept engrossed in the smooth flowing of the story.

    It captured my attention and interest all the way through.

    Read and enjoy.

    "the hero is worst spy ever."

    Though Rosalyn Landor gives her usual brilliant performance, there's not much one can do when the plot holes are so big that a coach and four can be driven though. The hero is an awfully sloppy spy, the heroine clueless, the mystery resolved thinly. I do not recommend.

    "real suspense."
    Where does Ransomed Jewels rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This has got to be one of my favorites of all my audiobooks and possibly the most suspenseful.

    Story
    "Fair book and not so good narration.."

    I’ve read a couple of books with this theme and I can honestly say I didn’t like them. Sam tells Claire that the necklace he thinks she has could save thousands of lives but all she cares about is her brother, who has been kidnapped by the owner of the necklace, and he wants it back. That makes her looks selfish when it comes to all the soldiers she could save BUT it’s still understandable that she wants to save her brother. At 17% I was wondering if the author was going to make us read 300 pages of them arguing over this stupid necklace and if that’s the way it was going to be I wasn’t going to read the remainder of the book.

    As I went along it was rather silly how Claire kept telling herself she should tell Sam about Alex being kidnapped, and then she’d talk herself out of it. Again and again this went on. I hate repetitiveness that just makes up the page count in a book.

    Overall, this was a decent read and a pretty good mystery but it was nearly ruined by Sam being so freaking dense. Talk about someone being TSTL! Good grief, that man got so many things wrong it was unbelievable. Sooo many misunderstandings and angst. As much as I liked the spies, the mystery, the search for the traitor this author is way to angsty for me.

    It was made much better by keeping you guessing as to who the traitor was until the end and I was really shocked.

    There was a good amount of desire in this, which made it even better, and a beautiful bedroom scene. Of course, there was no swearing.

    As to the narration: I know a lot of you are fans of Rosalyn Landor, and think she can do no wrong, BUT her male voices are just terrible. The men sounded like they’re constipated or something and trying to grunt through it. This could have been a fantastic book with a different narrator. Even with all her emotions she reads with she really needs to work on her male voices.

    "Horrible Narration"

    Narrator was so pompous, annoying and, at times, so difficult to understand that I deleted the audio version before the end of the first chapter. I may go back and read the book later but completely put off it for now.

    "I can't...."

    I normally like books by Laura Landon but even Rosalyn Landor wasn't able to make me like this book. IDK, when I think of someone working undercover for the crown I would expect them to be intelligent. The hero kept jumping to conclusions to the point it was beyond annoying. I seriously struggled to finish the book. Guess I need a break from characters with insecurities.

    "Good narrative stupid Hero"

    Not sure I can understand how some whom is supposed to be a spy is so dumb. In the first 10 chapters the Hero excuses the Heroine of sleeping with the enemy her, brother and her dead husband all the while he desires her. Ugh save me from dense men whom have power.
