Got into the story in the first chapter and kept my interest to the end. Well narrated and riveting storyline. Could easily have read it all over again as soon as I'd finished The characters were well rounded and exciting.
I won't give away the storyline definitely recommend for a good read.
Other thriller suspense books, Karen rose also an excellent author.
Smooth yet intense when the plot calls for. Delightful on the ears, excellent characterisation. Will be looking for other books narrated by him. Love the way he did Cash very sexy and Schyler depicted as a strong sassy yet feminine woman. Simply one of the best combinations on audible, along with Susan Erickson and J D Robb of course.
If I had the time I would definitely sit and listen to this narrator and book in one go. I will certainly listen again.
Fantastic way to spend your audible credits. Sandra Brown is and excellent author. Just the right amount of suspense, drama and love.
Dick Hill's voice just makes you want to head to the bayou. He does a great job of bringing the lead male (Cash) to life for the listener. And oh so steamy!! Whew
True to Sandra Brown style, the location and the characters come to life in your minds eye.
This book is a great, and heated getaway, if you are reading for pure escape this is my favorite Sandra Brown yet. that said I did find that the story line was pretty easy to figure out early on. Not as much twist as some of her other books but with Dick Hills narration that certainly did not matter....(Don't tell but I have listened to it twice)
My personal reality exists in the many adventures from Audible
This book, as well as the other two Sandra Brown titles I purchased, are horrible. I have never been so bored and easily distracted. Perhaps Sandra Brown is not as great of a writer as made out to be. I hope Audible will allow a refund on these, relatively inexpensive, Kindle Whispersync for Voice add-ons.
I quit reading about a quarter of the way through the book. If you like characters who enjoy pit-bull fighting, kill dogs, beat their wives, or sleep with (and get pregnant by) their sister's fiance, this is the book for you. I thought the main character was a wuss and the rest were just revolting. Maybe it gets better later, but I wasn't interested in finding out. Very disappointing, since I have read and enjoyed other books by this author. Narrator was fine.
Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!
A southern mystery with a lot of twists and turns, I enjoyed it.
Loved his performance as I have loved his others....he is the bomb!
When hard hearted Cash says......."I love you"
HATE spoilers! Enjoy HOT, sexy books. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. Running out this type Audible-so on2 lighter romance/mystery :-(
Yes, though not right away like I feel with some books. This is classic Sandra Brown, great to pull out again in a few years.
The adopted daughter of the most powerful man in town, Schyler Crandall left Heaven, Louisiana, a brokenhearted girl. Now a crisis has brought her home to a family in conflict, a logging empire on the brink of disaster, and seething secrets that make Heaven hotter than hell.
Still in town are her beautiful younger sister, Tricia, with her cruel lies; Ken, Tricia's handsome husband, who married the wrong sister; Jigger, the pimp and ruffian with plans of his own; and Cash, proud, mysterious, and complex. It is dangerous for Schyler to even be near Cash, yet she must dare to confront the past - if there is to be any peace in Heaven.

Cash-he's complex, straightforward, dark, sexy, overly competent, yummy.
Although I've heard better Cajun accents performed - Dick Hill does a great job with a varied cast of characters: a southern woman, a Cajun man, an elderly, weak heart attacked old man, etc. Steady as always.
This is a great book with a NON PREDICTABLE plot. It had me questioning til the end. However, it only took a few minutes to get all the pieces to fall into place.
Some (very little) cussing and a few 'romantic' episodes-nothing hard core.
I totally enjoyed this book, it's my favorite Sandra Brown so far, I liked it even better than Envy, which is also extremely good.
It grips you from the beginning and doesn't let you free until the very last sentence. The twisted relationships between Schyler, her family members and Cash make this book so very diverting and exciting.
Dick Hill's perfomance, especially Cash's voice, is great as well.
Two thumbs up!
I'm sorry folks but I just could not finish listening to this book. What I've read so far is totally depressing. I thought this was supposed to be a love story. It's more like a hate story to me. The content included racial slurs, rape scenes, swearing, animal abuse, profanity. There really needed to be lighter and positive moments to balance out the dark and depressing. I just could not take any more mistrust and misery. The narrator did an exceptional job too bad the story itself was awful.
I'm a Navy vet, full-time student, swim teacher, dog lover, and wife. And I love books!
I couldn't stop listening to this book. I suppose that makes it a good one, but I was frustrated, intrigued, and perplexed all at the same time, which got to be exhausting! The hero of the story is dark, dangerous, and hot... But I hated constantly questioning his motives and goodness. I also didn't realize when I purchased the book that it was published in 1991. Despite being dated, it was a good story, and Dick Hill is probably the best male voice actor I've heard yet! If you're looking for a nail biting, and at times erotic story, this could be the one!
I'm married with one daughter, just finished my BS in Health Science, and I'm a choosy fiction/romance/paranormal/anything spellbinding listener during my commute.
In the beginning, I was skeptical because of the odd characters and seemingly drab setting. I'm so glad I stuck with it a tiny bit longer! This book brings you into the mindset of the south in an interesting, twisted yet warming, way. The characters are real, there is no obnoxious dramatization of the typical romantic dilemmas, you feel like this is the genuine retelling of an amazing love story. Well worth the credit, and I'll be buying this author's next novel without hesitation.
