I love to read all genres of books, but love my historical romances!!!
I loved the story line, the characters and especially the narrator. It's nice when the men don't sound like old women. Phil Gigante has an incredible voice and I would listen to anything he narrates.
Yes. I really enjoy Karen Marie Moning's Fever series and Phil Gigante is a great reader. However, I won't be listening to any more books from this series.
This is a true and typical romance novel. I bought it because I enjoy other books from this author, but this particular one just isn't my cup of tea.
it was a pretty good story
yes, and I have not liked him as much in other books
Love story, beyond times
If you like Highlander stories, this is worth listening to.
Not sure it wants to be a 4 or 5 star book
None - it was completely abridged except for the "romance" parts.
The writer was recommended by an older woman (like me in her sixties) after I enjoyed Outlander and The Discovery of Witches - a totally different type of literature I'd ever read before. I thought it would be a nice little driving distraction. I found myself laughing at the pretense, the dialogue and the characters. This book is why I don't like romance novels. I will say that if you're looking for a little light porn, it is probably not a bad way to go. Just don't confuse it with a love story.
I love the characters. The confusion and hurt of Hawk' The hurt and betrayal of Kate's past love, and the shrewdness of the blacksmith kept everything up in the air.
I hate giving away anything in Books. It ruins parts for everyone who reads or listens to stories. There is one part on being a mid wife that brings out the differences and advances in medicine.
No. This was the first one.
No. I listen to the audio stories while commutting
I could imagine living in castles. Now I would love to go there and see the place for myself.
I found this book to be completely far fetched as far as character emotions go. Even in a fantasy i like to think that the characters reactions can be somewhat believable. There were A LOT of sex scenes and i ended up skipping the ones near the end. A good listen if sex is what you're looking for. It was a bit too much for me.
Probably not from Moning
Hawk's character was not well developed--didn't act true to his nature. Most disappointing was that it was mostly about their sex life rather than that being a facet of their relationship.
Accent was good.
Several but will give one: after they make love the scene where he stands looking out the bedroom window.
I've enjoyed other time travel & highlander novels but this fell short of my expectations.
Mother of 3, grandmother of 6, retired nurse and substance abuse counselor. Thrilled to have the time to read or listen to books again.
I'm at a loss as to how this writer could ever be compared to Diana Gabaldon. There is no comparison, I'm at a complete loss as to how this book ever got published. It is juvenile and extremely frustrating to listen to as the narrator is very annoying.
The story line is quite pathetic especially the "love" story it tries portray as there is nothing in it that has any ring of truth to it. It's a work of fiction to the extreme but in every book you want to feel that the love story the author touches upon is at the very least fesible somewhere. I found everything in this book to be unbelievabe on every level. Sorry I wasted my money.
I love to read! With kids, that hobby is impossible...enter Audible...problem solved. Chores that I dread are now quiet time for this Mommy!!!
I have read a few of the other reviews and almost did not purchase this book because of them. I found Phil Gigante's voice perfect for this series! It is true that it takes a few miuntes to get used to him in the female voice...but he IS a man. I find the same to be true when I listen to Anne Flosnik, or Rosalyn Landor...they are women so it takes a minute to get used to their male voices. All three are excellent narrators.
As for the story, I thought it was sweet, funny at times, and very tortured. The loves seens were steamy and descriptive. If that is not what you are looking for in a Romance, don't read it! I read this genre for tortured romance that drags out a bit. I also do NOT read romance for the character depth. Don't get me wrong, the character has to be believeable, which these two are, but I read the classics for character depth. I like a hero that is perfect for his heroine, damaged and male. The heroine needs to be troubled and not let go of her past, or vice versa. If they resolved the problems in the first three chapters, why would the rest of the book need to be written?
I highly reccommed this book to anyone who loves historical romance FICTION :)
I am married with a teenage son and run my own business. As I am visually impaired, audio books are my life.
As soon as I started listening to this I immediately thought this is so corny, predictable and very cliche, however I did get caught up in the story and ended up enjoying it. It's not as sappy as I thought it would be. It's easy to listen to and the narration was good
