This story goes nowhere. There is no tension between the main characters, and there's no real plot outside of the one the female lead lets us know about in the first two minutes. This makes for a predictable --not steamy-- stream of love scenes. Save you credits.
I loved the story of the strong minded Amanda Cynster and her strong willed Martin. She took control of her future by chasing him until he caught her. Stephanie throws in romance, intrigue and adventure. Simon Prebble has the voice and reads the stories as if they are his own and takes you into them as if you were there. I do think the sexual interludes could be reduced a bit but It is her story to tell and I give her accolades for it. Can't wait to read what Amelia does to get her mate.
Not the best example of Laurens' s imagination, I feel.
Amanda goes to a gaming hell to find the kind of man she wants for a husband and comes up with Martin. The rest of the book is just about that exciting. Not.
I must have bought the audio on sale without reading the paperback first. It is not on my list to reread.
Can't fault Simon Prebble's performance, though.
This was OK, but I would recommend a different Stephanie Laurens novel. This was just fair. Simon Prebble did a good job on the narration, but the story was lacking.
No spoilers! Love HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. I also review in exchange for books-lots of fun surprises!
Edit, edit, edit! It was a good story but could have told in fewer words.
Amanda as her high spirit is admirable. A great secondary character is the mature Lady (eldest) in charge of 'society' - her name escapes me as I read this a while ago but she is a hoot.
No, it was too drawn out for the story.
I really enjoyed this book, the characters were developed and the story lines interesting, it just could have used a better edit.
I wish books like this would carry warnings - so you'd know before purchasing, that the narrator uses a very strong English accent. I was only able to listen to about 10 minutes of it before I knew I'd wasted my money and there was no way I could listen to the annoying voice for another minute. Definitely wish I'd known before I purchased,about the narration
Don't waste the time, $$, or credit on this turkey. No plot, endless acrobatic sex, and a narrator who has is underwear so twisted that all he does is over-dramatize what is the worst book in this series.
Having now listened to all the Cynster novels up until this one, I found this story boring. The beginning and the end were interesting, the rest was very repetitive. 'Marry me, no, marry me, no, marry me, maybe', on and on this story line goes. Could have developed the characters so much more, and thus made the story line more interesting. As another reviewer wrote, I also get tired of the same phrases used over and over in these books, How many times do they 'hmph'? I do love historical romance, and I enjoy most of this author's books. Also enjoy the sex scenes, but those are over done also. So, glad I got this on sale and didn't use a whole credit. Not sure if I want to listen to the next one or not. As usual, the narrator does a fabulous job. He is one of my favorites for this genre.
I really like when the herione knows what she wants for and puts all on the line to get it.
Enjoyed this almost as much as the previous stories, and better than the story about Vane.
