I bought book 6 in this series on sale and I really enjoyed it. I figured I would buy book 1 in spite of the bad reviews. After all, I wasn't looking for literature or even Outlander. I just wanted a fun, if forgettable, audiobook to listen to while I did chores. Boy, was I wrong. I can't believe it's the same author!
I took several chapters before I could actually get into this book, but once I got into it I was held captive. it is a little hard to follow some times. in the end I did enjoy it
Home is where my books are.
I picked up a later book in this series and gave it a good review. I enjoyed it so much I thought I'd go back and start with the first book. I shouldn't have.
This isn't even a decent effort on the part of Moning, and I can't understand how it ever got published. The heroine time travels onto the lap of an evil man and everyone fails to notice that she isn't the guy's grown daughter -- everyone except him. He forces her to marry his enemy, by order of the king no less, and then threatens them both if she reveals the deception. Huh?
This was confusing and stupid. I got a deal or I'd return it.
I took a chance on this series since the reviews were awesome. Set in the 1500's and with a twist into the 1990's. Loved the romance, steamy scenes, and the ups and downs. On to next one!!!
Funny, endearing, and laughable. Ms. Moning makes a hit with this book. Mr. Gigante is a fabulous narrater.
The first make out scene on the cliff with the ocean sounds in the background.
Mr. Gigante gives another great performance. His voice is captivating and he is entertaining.
Still married to the sweetest man alive. Have 3 beautiful grandchildren with one on the way!
I'm a reader who likes to hear the "whole" story. That being said, I try to find good books that are written as a series. If a character grabs ahold and becomes real while reading its like they become family. The hero of this story is one who may fit that bill. Hawk is strong, handsome, honorable, and loyal. He's what most ladies want in their hero, so you will find he wins a place in your heart. Adrienne, who has been pulled from the future, on the other hand comes across, ( to me at least) , as being unsure of her own mind and feelings for most of the book. She was so back and forth that I was astonished Hawk found anything to love about her. She just never seemed to use her " modern thinking" brain for anything! She comes across as gulible and naive for the whole book! Considering she was from the future I expected better. She made me want to thump her in the head and scream, "Wake the @%$# up". I had to remind myself that she was just a character in a book.
Overall, the story caught my attention enough to want to continue the series, but I'm hoping the next book, To Tame a Highlander, is much better. Yes, I would recommend the listen because Phil Gigante does an excellent job and brings each character to life, and that's what we all want while we listen!
