From Booklist

Lady Camelia Marshall won't take no for an answer, so when Simon Kent refuses to sell her the design for a new type of steam-powered pump she must have to excavate her late father's archaeological site in South Africa, she simply "borrows" it. Once Simon discovers exactly what she has done, he sets out after her, only to find Camelia being threatened by thieves. After rescuing her, Simon discovers that all of his inventions have been destroyed. Concerned for Camelia's safety, Simon decides to build her a pump, never expecting that after spending just a little time with this delightfully original woman, he would be offering to accompany her on further adventures. An excellent sense of characterization, a captivatingly crafted and danger-laced plot, a deliciously exotic setting, and a superbly sensual love story all come together splendidly in the fourth in Monk's dazzling series of loosely connected historical romances.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fabulously entertaining Victorian March 18, 2005
By C. Penn
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In 1885, Lady Camelia Marshall returns to London following her father's death to secure investments that will allow her to continue her father's work. An archeologist in South Africa, Camelia believes that she is poised the brink of a major discovery. Others, however, doubt the value of her quest, and encourage her to give up her career to return to a more ordinary existence. Instead, Camelia seeks out an inventor whom she has thoroughly researched, believing he can create a steam engine capable of ridding her archeological site of water so she might continue her dig.

Inventor Simon Kent has little use for London society. His family periodically patents his inventions, but he is much more interested in discovering new things and allowing others to elaborate on the possibilities that might better society. Hard at work on a washing machine, he does not notice his interloper until she has been drenched with water. While he might be flattered by her interest in his work, Simon does not become willing to aid Camelia's quest until a mysterious fire guts his home. Then accompanied by a variety of guests, including Camelia's pet snake, bird and monkey, Simon embarks upon a life altering journey to South Africa.

Author Karyn Monk presents a light and amusing read in EVERY WHISPERED WORD. Days after finishing the novel, I could not help recalling especially vividly realized and humorous tidbits, which would once again have me giggling. Camelia's intelligence, determination, and career choice nicely compliment Simon's own unorthodox lifestyle. Startling original, marvelously humorous, and wonderfully told, EVERY WHISPERED WORD is a must read. EVERY WHISPERED WORD comes very highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful addition to the series. March 1, 2005
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Lady Camelia "Tisha" Marshall is an archaeologist, like her father before her. She continues her father's work at their dig site, Pumulani ("Poo Moo Lanee"), in South Africa. She searches for the legendary Tomb of Kings. She is accompanied by Zareb, her African best friend who has guided and watched over her since she arrived in Africa at the tender age of ten. Lately, many "accidents" have rocked her site. The workers begin to believe the site is cursed. The rainy months have flooded the site and no one will sell or lease Tisha a steam pump to get rid of it, due to a monopoly by the De Beers Company who wishes to purchase Tisha's land from her. Her only hope is to travel to London, locate the brilliant inventor Simon Kent, and persuade him to part with the new type of pump he has invented. Of course, Zareb goes with her. So does Rupert (a two and a half foot long tiger snake), Harriet (a neurotic Grey Lourie bird), and Oscar (a mischievous, undisciplined monkey).

Simon Kent did not hear the banging on his front door and would not have answered it even if he had. When inventing, Simon loses himself in his work. But when he turned around there she was, uninvited in his laboratory talking about a business proposition. Simon has too many inventions going on to consider stopping to help, no matter how beautiful and intelligent the odd lady is. He could not see how digging up old bones could possibly help the world. But someone out there does. Someone that will go to dangerous lengths to stop her, as well as anyone associated with her. Needless to say, Simon is soon traveling with Tisha and her strange companions to South Africa.

***** Simon is one of the charming band of street urchins that was first introduced in "The Prisoner".

2.0 out of 5 stars Great potenrial, poor execution April 8, 2005
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I really loved the potential of the story line. But the execution was very poor, unfortunately. It could have been a significantly stronger story with just a few adjustments. Mostly to the love scenes. The hero and heroine just fall into bed... of course she's a virgin. But... I did manage to re-write it in my head... and I liked the book much better once I'd done this.

The book was funny, the characters likeable and fairly well fleshed out. Before the first love scene I was so HAPPY at how good the book was... I went and bought the first book in the series, The Prisoner. I read that too... and all I can say is I agree that she's capable of much better execution.... Overall I'd give it about a three or manybe three and a half stars for the humor.

2.0 out of 5 stars A good premise poorly written June 16, 2006
By Gemma
Format:Mass Market Paperback
From the back cover:

In a conspiracy of hearts the survival of love depends on every whispered word...

When Lady Camelia Marshall barges uninvited into Simon Kent's London laboratory with a business proposition, she finds the famous inventor not at all as she had imagined. Far from the elderly scholar she expected, Kent is handsomely disheveled, suprisingly brawny, and decidedly uninterested in helping her pursue the archaeological work of her late father that could make known to the world the stirring secrets of an ancient culture and the mysterious cave paintings of the lost Tomb of Kinds.

Though intrigued by the strikingly unconventional beauty of Lady Camelia, Kent cannot fathom leaving behind his inventions and research to scrabble in the African dirt. But while he may not grasp the magnitude of Camelia's proposition at once, someone else does--someone willing to go to dangerous lengths to stop Camelia...and anyone associated with her. Suddenly, seduced by the sun-kissed hair and bronze skin of this gifted and indomitable woman, Kent finds himself drawn into a risky adventure that will lead him to an astonishing paradise he could never have imagined.

And my review:

I didn't expect to love this book, but I did expect to like it, as I'd enjoyed Karyn Monk's ONCE A WARRIOR, and never once had to force myself to finish it. Unfortunately, that was not the case with EVERY WHISPERED WORD.

On the plus side, this book is written with Monk's trademark humor and attention to historical detail. Her characters are well-rounded "real" people. I especially liked the idea of two misfits (the mad inventor and the female archeologist) falling in love.
