Very bad book, I hate the fact that I downloaded this audio based on good reviews, if the book is bad then please state the facts please say it's horrible especially this one
This book, like so many today, needed a good editor.
I love long stories but not this one... went on and on and on with details that were not necessary. The story was good but i would go with an abridged on this one...
I loved this book. I put it on my gps books and I always had it on even in my house. If you want a book that keeps you wanting more read this one. I had to buy the next book before I was done so It wouldn't stop.
I thought this was so boring. Could not keep my attentions. After only a couple of hours I skipped ahead to see if it got better and it did not. I'm sorry I wasted a credit for this. Truly surprised there are so many good reviews.
This book is mostly a romance novel with some serious psychological sexual torture thown in for a purpose I am not certain of. I am thoughly suprised at the number of people who enjoy this nauseatingly gruesome book. The narrator is amazing, and I really wish she would be more choosy in what she argees to narrate.
If you are a true sadist then this is the novel for you, I am sure it will have you arroused in no time.
Somehow I stupidly missed the fact that this was a romance. It actually starts out well, with interesting historical details and characters, and rapidly dissolves into the sappiest romance on earth. More than 50% of of the book was "romantic scenes," each one more absurd than the next.
But what makes this book horrible for me is the underlying conservative Christian mantra; the heroine begins as a strong, independent woman and then the story, and her character, dissolves into a highly predictable plot based on "family values." She is "forced" to marry the handsomest man in the land, so she can safely remain within the bounds of conservative teaching while living out her fantasies. It follows without saying that the villain is an evil homosexual with twisted sadomasochistic practices, who is vanquished in the end. I can just imagine Laura Bush hiding this book under her pillow...
I'm an audiobook junkie. I've listened to hundreds of books in the public domain, and I use my one audible credit per month with care.
Because of my belief in Christ, I do not delve into the occult. This book hits you hard with it, and it doesn't let up. I gave it about 30 minutes to go another direction and it did not. I turned it off and deleted it.
Unfortunately, I purchased more in the series before I read the first book. I had credits that needed used up. But the answer is, "No' I would not purchase again."
She has a nice voice and did a pretty nice job of switching back and forth between the dialects.
No, I am sorry to say. I hated all of the corny love scenes. I enjoy historical fiction, but all of the ridiculous romance was too much.
Don't waste your money or credits.
