even an old man can beat the gods
I have read a lot of recent romance novels and this one was a nice change of pace. It has a story that kept me listening to the end and, although the title is a dead giveaway if you know anything about sacrifices to the gods, it was extremely well done. It made me remember what it was like to be young and feel everything so intensely. If you like Georgette Heyer, I think you'll like this one.

I read several books by Lofts when I was young. I remember few details beyond feeling fairly certain I liked them. So I expected to enjoy her audio books as well. This book, my first pass at a Lofts audio book, must have been new to me. If I had read it before, no longer how many years had passed, I would still have a bad taste in my mouth.
The 2 main characters are idiots, both operating under extreme confusion and naivet??. Neither one was sympathetic. Nor were any of the secondary characters. There was really no plot and what was supposed to pass for the plot - the hero's attempts to remove the heroine from a brothel and save her wasn't plausible, because there was little evidence that the place was a brothel and that she needed saving.
Not a positive experience.
