  • "A FAIRYTALE LOVE STORY THAT'S ENTER..."

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    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.

    A Marriage of Convenience: Such is the agreement forged between Lady Jessica Stanton and Simon Warland, Earl of Northcote. Jessica needs a husband strong enough to protect her inheritance from her avaricious stepbrother. Simon needs money to restore the family legacy his father squandered. United by necessity, emotional attachment isn’t part of the deal.

    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!!

    A hardened mercenary as adept in bed as in battle, Simon Quinn can have any woman he wants, but he prefers those who know the rules of the game. That way it’s easier to leave them behind.… But Lysette Rousseau is one female he can’t figure out. Beautiful, sensual, seductive, she should be the perfect match for Simon, yet something about her ties him in knots. Bold and manipulative one time, sweetly innocent the next, she is an enigma bound to bring trouble…impossible to resist.

    "Great love story.."

    Overall

    Story
    Any additional comments?

    Loved the story. Absolutely loved Wilhelm (but a horrible name for the hero) and I loved Sophia too. She was so brutalized I'm surprised she was even normal. Hated her father, Chauncey, what an evil man. Great secondary characters, the good ones, that is.
    Over all, a wonderful book.

    As to the narrator: She did a pretty good job. She could have made her men sound a little more manly but it was ok. I would listen to her again.

  • Taming an Impossible Rogue: Scandalous Brides, Book 2

    "Great love story.."

    Overall

    Story
    Any additional comments?

    I think I like A Beginner's Guide to Rakes better than this one but not by much. I really liked Keating and Camille. Love Greaves and can't wait to read his and Sophie's story. And I really couldn't stand Fenton, such a jerk. This book kept me entertained all the way through. Great sex, too.

    As to the narrator? She was just ok IMO. Not great and not the worst I've ever heard. Most of her women sound alike, which is ok. And most of her men sound alike but at least they sound like men. She just has no emotion.

    I would also like to say that the description tells us what the book is about or we can zip over to Amazon and look at reviews. This is AUDIBLE! What we need to review is the narrator. Does he or she suck? Why? Is he or she too nasal-y, too sweet for the kind of book he or she is reading, to gruff, too bland, too robotic, lacks emotion. Is he or she doing nothing but reading the book? Not changing his or her voice for the male and female voices? Is the narrator sounding the same whether she or he is reading a whisper spoken?
    Most of us on AUDIBLE don't really care what the book is about. We want to know about the narrator!

    Story
    Any additional comments?

    I'm not real sure where to start with this review. I'm at 55% and it's a little boring right now. Isabail is just too stubborn and wishy-washy for me. One minute she believes Aiden is innocent and the next she's plotting with Daniel against Aiden. I'm to the point now where I'm thinking of skimming a chapter or five just to get on with it. I liked Ana and Niall's story better. I'm not even sure I'm going to finish this.

    UPDATE: I did skim the rest of this book and I'm sorry to say it really doesn't end with everyone happy and all problems solved. You do have to wait until December to find out what happens to Aiden, Niall and Wulf. These kinds of books are not for me so I'll just make up my own ending and be done with this author.

    As to the narrator: I'm usually a BIG fan of Ms. Potter's but not so much this time. Or maybe it was just me. Isabail, Isabel, Izabel, etc, etc. You get what I'm trying to say. Isabel is spelled in different ways and this time it's spelled ISABAIL. The problem I had was, Ms. Potter called her Esh-ah-bel through the entire book and since I read along with the story it just about drove me crazy. I can see mispronouncing a word now and then but the heroine's name, through the whole book??? Her usual 5 stars drops to 4 because of this.

    Any additional comments?

    I loved every word of this book. Loved Piers and Linnet and hated to see the story end. Loved Prufrock, best butler ever. Loved Doctors Kibbles and Bitts, that was too funny. Loved Sebastien. Loved the story reguarding his parents and how that all worked out. I simply loved the entire story. It was sad, happy, intense, everything you'd want in a fairy tale. AND the sex was just beautiful and didn't overwhelm the storyline. I would recommend this book to all romance readers.

    As to the narrator: Ms. Duerden did a perfect job! I couldn't have asked for a better narrator for this book. Every voice was perfect and individual. You always knew who was talking and THAT makes for great narration. IMO..

    I would also like to say that the description tells us what the book is about or we can zip over to Amazon and look at reviews. This is AUDIBLE! What we need to review is the narrator. Does he or she suck? Why? Is he or she too nasal-y, too sweet for the kind of book he or she is reading, to gruff, too bland, too robotic, lacks emotion.

    12 of 12 helpful votes

    This is my favorite book out of this series. You have to read Outlander to understand what is going on but trust me its well worth it. The characters become like friends and you find yourself caring about them and there story while learning a great deal about Scottish history. Outstanding book.
