The Gentleman And The Rogue – Recording The Audiobook Right Now

The Gentleman and The RogueWe are in the process of recording an historical romance with a twist!  The Gentleman and The Rogue by Bonnie Dee and Summer Devon is period erotic romance and our first m/m gay audiobook.

With over 670 ratings on Goodreads and 5 star ratings on Amazon we knew we were in for an interesting story and we were not disappointed. It is a cracking mystery adventure with an evil villain, a noble quest, forbidden love, passion and romance all developed in a fast moving plot.

The recording has been a challenge as the authors requested that the Gentleman should have an upper class accent and the Rogue, as a young cockney sparrow should sound as if he comes from a lower class London background.  This seemed very reasonable and the authors loved the audition we sent them.

When we read through the book before starting the recording we then discovered that there are actually 15 other characters plus the narrator  – a young girl, servants, footmen, landlords, a doctor and a magistrate to name a few!  We have had a lot of fun placing all their accents and characters – and even more fun keeping track of them so that when they appear at different times in the book they are consistent.  All in a day’s work for narrators and editors!

The main audio is now almost complete.  Then it’s over to the editor for processing and checking.  This audiobook will probably last over 9 hours when it’s complete so it takes many hours of painstaking work to edit it all together, get rid of any strange noises (tummy rumbles before lunch and ‘oinks’ after!) as well as final polishing to blend it all together.

If you need to read it before the audiobook is out (end of May 2013) you can find it by clicking here: The Gentleman And The Rogue on Amazon Worldwide  (NB. Explicit erotic content).

  1. Thanks so much for your efforts on our book. We love how it sounds so far. Bonnie & Summer.

    I’m checking out Emma’s book, Escape to Love, since I’m a sucker for unconventional romances and this one features an escaped prisoner. Right up my alley. I’m currently working on a romance in which a crime lord’s henchman falls for the woman he’s supposed to extract money from. Love me some anti-hero! Bonnie

    Your blog led me to check out Emma’s Escape to Love book. I love unconventional romance heroes so an escaped prisoner hooking up with a woman on the run really caught my attention. I’m currently working on a romance featuring a crime lord’s henchman who falls for the woman he’s supposed to extract money from. Love me some anti-hero lovin’! Bonnie
