fantastic performance narrator ! OK storywise , but, I would have liked better if there was more "goodtimes"? or maybe just plain happiness. The whole book is pretty much sadness, heart break, anger, jealousy. Don't get me wrong, there is a well deserved HEA, but little to no hope up to it. In fact, I was so frustrated with it, I had to stop listening a couple times, to pick up again a few days later , trying hard to finish. While quite the tear jerker the closer to the end I got, I'm glad I finished. The ending, definately worth it.
Possibly the worst romance I have ever read/listened. It was so full of cliches in both characters and words I finished it hoping that in a twist everyone would "meet a bad end" but...spoiler...no such luck.
So while the story wasn't so bad I have to say the narrator really ruined the story. He sound scotch at first but keep going back and forth with African American voice that ruined the story. In this time frame in Scotland a Scottish lord Douglas would not have married a black women. And back and forth French ?? Really it was so distracting his going all over the place with accents. And he fell out of the accents Inbetween talking in a different voice for their thoughts ? Just kept me off and hard to enjoy. If he is narrating another book I'll shy away from it unless it fits his voice better. Like a new Orleans story line.
I don't recommend books but, for fellow Audible listeners who have never heard a male narrator who can manage female characters, Phil Gigante can, and does.
Predictable but still enjoyable.
This was my first Phil Gigante listen. It won't be my last.
Yes. I just ordered the second in the series, just to hear more Phil Gigante and the lovely silliness of the story.
Good listen. It's fluff to be sure but, good fluff is worth noting.
Karen Marie Monings has combined passion, love, stubbornness and deep emotions with manipulating supernatural to create an empowering love story. Narrator Phil Gigante has the perfect brogue so each character comes alive with their own voice and personality. I felt like I was right there in Scotland with them. Absolute perfection!! I highly recommend this book.
It is one of my new favorites.
When she came back and he saw she was caring his child.
This is my first and will not be my last.
When she had to leave him on there wedding day and she had to tell him she picked Adam.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
I have read the entire Highland series by Karen Marie Moning and I love them all. With that being said this is my least favorite but still really good. I now have the entire series on audible after getting them all on sale so I decided to relisten to them. If you're looking for a sexy highland series with a bit of fantasy, I defiantly recommend this one. Narrator is super sexy, although his female voices are not the greatest but his Scottish brogue makes up for that.
The story was good & I would have given it 4 stars, however I became annoyed with how "perfect" was used to describe the features of the characters. Perfect lips, perfect face, perfect body, blah, blah. I also became frustrated with the heroine at times...but when Grimm confronted her about her actions he said just about everything I was thinking. I understand her hesitation, however it got old. The author did a good job of taking her through the process, but it felt like it took a long time to get there.
