I think when we listen to these FICTIONAL, historical romances there are 2 categories of listeners - 1. the listener that want's everything researched, researched, researched and then verified (absolutely nothing wrong with that if that's what you like), and 2. the listener who just want's a fanciful romance that's pure escapism and who wants just a bit of enjoyable fun to pass the time whilst doing a particularly dull chore or task. I think this is why this book is getting such varied reviews and I sadly, fall into the 2nd category - so I will give my review based on my own personal tastes.
I found this to be thoroughly enjoyable, touching, funny, sweet and romantic and it has some great characters too that you can't help but empathise with - handsome penniless Rake and a deaf rich but modest heiress. There is an evil villain who had 'allegedly' raped a servant of 13/14 and done some 'unmentionable' acts but, as with all these types of books, he gets 'dealt with'. Great narration by Ms. Landor too.
Worth a credit? If you fall in category 2 then - YES absolutely - but for $9.79 for nearly 11hrs I would just buy it, save your credit and spend it on a more expensive listen.
Ms Day I love love love all your books and cannot wait for the next one to be released...... but do you realise I can't get my work done properly, my family's living on take-outs and I've now become an insomniac. If you like sexy Georgian romance listens then my tale shows you just how addictive this series is as once you start listening you just won't want to stop.
This is another captivating story but this time it's about an evil villain, mistaken identity, three romances - one's heartbreaking, one's fiery and one's about forgiveness. They all have passion, tension, deception, danger, seduction, betrayal and lots and lots of sex by brilliant characters that you sympathise and empathise with. Not really a stand alone listen as most of the characters have parts in previous books.
Worth a credit? Yes, but as I've said before, they are all very reasonably priced so splash your cash sit back and enjoy. But a word of warning - get all your work done first and pre-prepare your meals!!
Sexy Highland warrior Cormac rescues his 'soul mate' who had rescued him 10 years ago when she was but a bonny wee girl of 9. Elspeth has loved and dreamed of the boy she saved all those years ago then, unbelievably, there he is rescuing her from the clutches of a demented Laird who has kidnapped her and is determined to marry her.
Cormac and Elpeth flee to the Royal Court but on the way Elspeth must convince him to break a vow to another beauty by any means she can - including sex.
Lovely story, yes a little unbelievable, but my fellow romance listeners - that's why we love them so much!!
I love books! Audiobooks take stories to the next level. I'm obsessed with Audible and will try to rate all of my books. Happy Listening! ;)
This book has what I come to expect from a good historical/ highlander romance story: good romance, some adventure and good narration. Add a mystery that ended up being quite surprising and you end up with a very enjoyable listen.
Narration: this is the first book I've listened to that has been narrated by Sarah Coomes and I liked her. Very good accent, different voices for each character and she brought the story to life and made it believable. I recommend this book but don't use one of your credits because the member price is lower than the credit price.
