It is hard to say if I would have enjoyed this book with a different narrator. This guy is absolutey terrible. His female voice for Adrienne is AWFUL. It is whiny and definately does not depict the supposed "strong woman of the 20th centurye". I am through part 1 and suffering the rest. I had high hopes for this series and I only hope the next books narrator does a much better job.
If you are looking for light reading with no basis in historical fact, this is a really fun read.
The premise for time travel is fresh; I really like the characters in the fairy court.
First time- the voice is clear and pleasant.
Arrogant overlord meets his match
The male narrator trying to do female voices was distracting it was so bad. The story is terrible and the use of 20th century english mixed in with 1600's english regardless of the speaker make the whole thing border on stupid. Really low quality for something from Audible. Very disappointed.
I wasn't digging the narrator too much (he sounded too much like A Christmas Story narrator) so it was hard for me to get over that. Plus, doing the woman's voices was just awkward.
In regards to the storyline, the time travel aspect of this book is a bit silly. Just my opinion.
It's a silly, typical bodice ripper, badly written - laughable actually - with EXCELLENT narration and production value! Phil Gigante talking in Scottish brogue is amazing! Pity about the actual STORY! LOL
If this could be redone narrated by Holter Graham instead I would like to get it again(all the books in her series) because the way Phil Gigante does women's parts they sound more like drag queens, the men's parts are alright though.
I like the books (the whole series). I read the entire series last year & am now listening to the books. Of course, they're exactly the same, and I still enjoy the stories but what knocks my review down to 3 stars is the narration...has anyone else noticed (and been cracked up by) the narrator's almost Jamaican accent when what he's going for is a Scottish accent? And the voices he does are pretty lame. But the Jamaican accent thing...I've actually had to stop listening to laugh!
sappy, over the top, corny, i could go on. i kept listening because i was entertained by the flashy and over the top writing style. but had to stop before i was finished listening....just not my cup of tea.
wouldn't recommend this at all. bought it because of it's high overall rating. wanted a fantasy escape. received a comedy instead, unintended.
I had hoped there would be a great story line that went with this romance, however, most of this was the he wants her, she wants him but won't say so, back and forth. There was no mystery, no intrigue, it was boring. Even the so called romance was boring. I listened because I paid for it. I can't say anything about her other series, but this one is not worth it.
I am a HUGE Karen Moning and Fever series fan so I decided to try this first book. Unfortunately the narrator was so awful with the female voices that I was distracted from the story throughout the entire book. I don't think I can go on to the next book as the same narrator does all 7 of them. Also, it was hard to believe that this was written by the same author who wrote the Fever series that are incredibly great. Even for a romance novel, it was ok, not great though.
