Never judge a book by its movie
An amazing spin on the historical romance. Lord Ian MacKenzie, youngest of 4 Scottish brothers who's father ( a Duke) had abused them all as children. He believed he was "fixing them"
Ian wouldn't look at people , he could play complex music just by hearing it, he would refuse to speak for days so his father placed him in a institution because he was "mad
(more likely he was mildly autistic).
Ian meets a beautiful newly wealthy widow, and decides he must marry her.
Beth is a sweet girl who understands Ian and wants to protect him from people who want to destroy Ian and his brother, the currant Duke.
The brothers are difficult and complex, but they have a very close relationship, and will protect each other with their lives.
I loved Angela Dawe's narration, she has a melodic voice that really grabbed me.
I have read the whole series, and I was so excited to see the audio-book.
I can't wait for the rest of the series. Each book is fantastic, each brother has their own tragic life that becomes less tragic with the help of a special woman.
Well worth the credit.. You won't be disappointed.
I really liked this series, but this was clearly the best (so far)
The Narrator was amazing, she has an amazing voice. I loved her voice of baby Mary.
Silence & Mickey were both characters that you could not help but love.
The mystery of the "Ghost of St. Giles becomes clearer, introducing Book 4 of this series.
This book is not to be missed.
Busy mom who loves to read but doesn't always have the time. I enjoy YA, Romance and the occasional Best Seller.
I don't understand all the bad reviews. I thought this was a good steamy romance. Most "romance" books these days seem to have very little plot with heavy emphasis on sex scenes. I'm not a prude and I mostly enjoy the adult content but I do like to have a good plot. This delivered on both for me. It had great characters, a good mystery and a HEA. Basically everything I expect in a good romance book.
If you don't care for this genre or you don't like hot sex scenes then this one is not for you (probably the reason for some of the bad reviews).
I thought the narration was good as well. This is set in London in the 1700's why shouldn't the narrator have an English accent? Again, I don't get the negative reviews but narration is a personal preference.
This was a credit worthy listen for me.
