Books by Julianne MacLean
In My Wildest Fantasies is a British, historical romance with elements of suspense. The first book in the Pembroke Palace six-book series, it sets the background for the Sinclair family story. While there is a teaser at the end, which describes the main conflict for the second book, it could nonetheless be listened to as a stand-alone book, as the love life of the primary hero and heroine is resolved. When I first read the description of this book, I was expecting the cliche romance where the hero and heroine experience love at first sight after the hero rescues the heroine.
To my delight, In My Wildest Fantasies contained much more, including intrigue, passion, scandal, and even unexpected plot twists.
Rebecca, being an innocent, sheltered girl of seventeen, instantly romanticizes Devon as her hero after this spark filled rescue. Devon, however, while also feeling this attraction, chooses to ignore Rebecca when he discovers that she is still underage. Four years later, Rebecca is faced with a terrible mandate.
Her father insists that she marry her neighbor, Maximilian Rushton, an arrogant, cruel man who has already behaved dishonorably towards her through no invitation of her own. Given the fact that he is also a man of a lower rank than Rebecca, she is convinced that Mr.
Rushton must have some sinister leverage over her father. With the aid of her Aunt, Rebecca runs away in search of her hero. As one can surmise from the title, Rebecca has passionately fantasized about Devon since their first meeting.

Now she is determined to make her dreams come true and convince Devon to marry and love her. As fate would have it, Devon has just returned home from a three-year trip abroad to America, and his father is insisting that he marry before the end of the year or lose his inheritance. Convincing Devon to marry her, however, will not be as easy as it would at first appear. Rushton are only a couple of the many obstacles.
Perhaps Ms. Landor is a prolific narrator with well over a hundred audiobooks under her belt, many of which are romances. As should be expected from such an experienced performer, she delivers a solid reading of In My Wildest Fantasies. Her pacing of the story, accents, and acting of emotions are beyond reproach.
While leaving no doubt as to which are male, and clearly differentiating between the younger and older men, I found it a little harder to differentiate amongst the younger ones primarily when Devon and his brothers were speaking. One potential narration issue that I did note, however, relates to the quality of the production.
