Addicted to books, but especially to audiobooks!
I've a few of Linda Howard's books in my audio library (After the Night, Kill & Tell) and for the most part, I have really enjoyed her writing style. She brings a good balance between, action, mystery & romance to her novels. The romance aspect of the book is typically well done with a level of sensuality but in good taste.
I have to say thought, that I found Shades of Twilight's description of incestuous relationships very disturbing to say the least. The author didn't do a good at describing those relationships in a more critical light, but rather they are presented to the reader as almost normal and acceptable.
Ms. Howard is a great writer and she always does a good job at transporting you to the time & place where her characters are located but this one is by far my least favorite of her books.
Natalie Ross has become one of my favorites narrators, she brings the right level of emotion to the story without overacting. She also is one of the few female narrators that has a perfect pitch to handle both male & female voices (Let's face it; some female narrators sound very creepy when doing male voices!!)
If you are a fan of Linda Howard, you'll probably enjoy this book. If this if your Linda Howard book, I suggest you start with something a little lighter than this...Cheers and happy reading!!!
this book had a great story but there are definite lulls. I believe this is the first Linda Howard book that I have done some serious chapter jumping. albeit it was early in the book from chapter 3 to chapter 9 and then from 9 to 17. I don't think I hindered my reading for it. With that in mind, the plot certainly goes faster from there, it feels more like a Linda Howard romance thriller then.
The narrator did a great job!
If it weren't for the relations between 1st cousins and father/daughter, I would consider this a top-rate story.
Terrific story with lots of plot twists and turns. The narrator was fabulous in giving each character a distinct voice and that gave such depth to the story. One of the best narrators I have heard.
I bought this book a few years before purchasing the Audible recording. This is about the fourth time I've listened to it. I can't decide if my FAVORITE book of Linda Howard is Now You See Her,Shades of Twilight,Son of the Morning,or Dream Man.....but,then there's Heart Breaker,Diamond Bay,Mackenzie's Mountain,Duncan's Bride,and on,and on and on.....
I read the reviews of this book before purchasing it. Several of the reviews said this had book was one of Linda Howard ' s best and that there was humor in the story along with a great story. I disagree ! This story was sad almost a dark storyline.With very little humor. I was surprised at the "who dunnit ", though.
I enjoyed "Mr. Perfect", "Open Season","All the Queens Men", and the Blair Malory books (2). These books had me laughing out loud and had a great story/plot. I just started listening to Linda Howard ' s books a month ago. I'm also a Huge fan of Julie Garwood ' s books.
I am 45 years old, married 25 years next June to my wonderful husband, and the proud mother of two boys.
This is easily one of my favorite book of her's. The story had a wonderful plot, with characters that easily become friends the more often you read it. 💔💞👌👏👏👏👏👏
Thank you, Linda!!! Xoxo
I can't say, I am not a writer; however, it would have been better knowing before hand that this particular novel was written during the author's misogynistic period.
I want to like the characters that I'm supposed to like. So I was disappointed to find that I really, really disliked the characters that I'm supposed to like.
Nothing, Natalie Ross did her typical exceptional job. She simply had nothing to work with.
I wish Nora Roberts had written more novels.
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
this is one of my all time faves and I have re listen many times. N.R. and our hero are just plain steamy. Do not miss this one or After the Night by this author. Enjoy as I have.
