Absolutely. The characters were engaging and the plot fast-paced. There was not the irritating indecision between the two main characters that can make a romance lag.
The scenes between the two of them alone.
Yes, I was unsure at first. I prefer men in a romance but I enjoyed the performance.
When the heroine was trying to save the knight from poison.
An talented author and a wonderful story. I look forward to more from Elizabeth Lowell.
Don't be fooled by the publisher's summary, it's a romance novel. Perhaps it's a good romance novel but I'm not qualified to make that call.
I could only make it halfway through the book so I suppose the second half could have been a completely different book. The first half was all about the new husband trying to seduce his new wife, who he treats like a falcon.
Buy it if you like romance but save your money if you don't.
This book drove me nuts because it was all about mistrust, jealous, and male dominance - that's it no other plot. I was along for the ride with an arranged marriage and a medieval knight, but after they got married the book became a constant battle over her virginity and jealousy over her brother/former fiance. There was a skeleton plot with lots of irritating drivel in between.
No one - Flosnik was great.
Don't waste your time or money.
Not bad at all. Story was pretty good. I did question some of the dialogue as being "too modern" but I could be wrong. Did they use the term "half an hour" in the medieval times? Also, I was getting annoyed at how much Domenic mistrusted Meg. Other than that , the story was enjoyable.
I love Epic Fantasy....have become a Historical Romance fan because I am a sucker for a good Happily Ever After. Good characters are a must
Wow....this book was so awesome. What a romance. I have no idea how the author could write such ridiculously sensual and HOT scenes without the characters even having sex! I have never listened to a book wishing the heroine would have her monthly flow already! (You'll understand when you listen to the book)
Great characters, great story, wonderful romance.....it's just so so awesome. Very credit worthy....it's regular price worthy in my opinion.
Now...I have NEVER been a fan of Anne Flosnik and in most of my reviews I don't hold my tongue about her narration.....well this book has made me rethink Anne Flosnik as a narrator. I usually cringe when I see she is the narrator...but she did an excellent job with this book. I stand by my other reviews of her narration...but this was a different Anne...I LOVED how she handled every character.
Listen to this book! I'm going to get the other two in the series RIGHT NOW!
Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!
I loved this medieval romance. Unique plot, beautiful love story with lots of suspense and great characters. Sexually tasteful, the little falcon and brave warrior make a grand duo! The narrator was wonderful at times but grizzly voiced at others, the wonderful outweighed the not though and I really enjoyed her. I will continue on with 2 & 3 and I wish she would write Sven's story as he is the most mysterious character of all.
For the genre it was quite good. Elizabeth Lowell is a good storyteller. It is a shame about the narrator.
The narration by Anne Flosnik wasn't too bad except her interpretations of male characters was absolutely deplorable - especially the main male character. It was embarrassing to listen to and I cringed everytime, especially during the love scenes. It is a shame because I quite liked her accent. I will think hard before listening to her again.
Good news that someone else is narrating the next book in the series. Hopefully it will be an improvement.
Yes. I found the characters interesting and I enjoyed the story very much.
I love how the story ended. It left me wanting additional chapters or a sequel.
She used some voices I would have imagined the characters to have.
Time and again the action of unspoken love.
This narrator makes dialog of young women sound like old men, young men sound like over dramatic thespians and the bad guys rasp and hiss like Gollum! Over-acted! I guess this one is just above this narrator's skill set. I wanted to give up after the first 2 hours!'
