ELLE aka PlantCrone of the Great Pacific Northwest. I enjoy almost every genre-S/F, Action, Biographies and Histories & Romance
I don't read Roberts much anymore-she knows her audience and basically writes the same book over and over. I sometimes count the number of times she uses "He fisted his hand in her long (blazing red/midnight ebony/flowing chocolate) hair." In Captivated, it was 4 times.
This is an old Donnovan series book, dug out, apparently, for this Audible special to attract Roberts many fans. It contains 2 of 4 short novels in the series. The last 2 are not available on audible though her loving audience seems to be begging for it.
The reader is nice to listen to, does a variety of voices and accents well and her voice was pleasant. I see she reads quite a few Roberts books. I liked her, but between her soothing voice and the sorry old plot I was put to sleep - twice.
If you are looking for an inexpensive and low key book for an airplane listen or general relaxing, I'd say the price (right now) is worth it. I bought it because I'd never listened to a Roberts book on audio...don't think I'll do it again.
Retired high school English teacher. I liked and worked with the at-risk student. Interested in about everything, but I love a good story.
I was appalled with this book. Ordinarily, in the very least, I enjoy Ms. Roberts' characters and the way they approach what are, definitely, mundane romance situations. There was none of that charm in this book. Her characters are lifeless. This is an excellent idea of how not to write a romance novel.
I wish I hadn't wasted the money because I didn't listen to the whole thing. That's an unusual situation for me because I'm relatively accepting.
Complete enjoyment..and two stories for the price of one. Loved Nora Robert's lovely flow to the story. Narration is awesome. Not to be missed!
These stories were definitely captivating. The love stories did seem enchanted, but held enough of a hold on reality to let them connect with the reader. Nice escape.
I read the book years ago and I love the story of the Donovan witches, which is the only reason I was able to finish listening to the aufio book. The narrator's performance is horrible. She does a great job with the Irish accent, but in reading she over-dramarizes every sentence, with the emphasis on the wrong words. Not sure how to explain it here, but to me it pretty much ruined this favorite book.
In love with love...
I've officially been taught a lesson about buying a book with a narrator Im not familiar with. I am a huge Nora Roberts fan and this book doesn't disappoint but for me this reader was a whispery, breathy, sultry mess!!! Lord I had a hard time trying to get past her voice. Please listen to the sample to make sure the readers voice doesn't irk you.
