This is one of my favorite Linda Howard books, and one of my favorite books in general. I go back to it at least once a year and Daisy never ceases to amaze me. Howard has managed to capture this character's naivety and lack of guile as no other author could. So I was a little disappointed that the audio book version was abridged. I think that the actor's voice didn't quite capture Daisy's warm and engaging personality. Overall the story is excellent, however it's treatment as an audio book was unexpectedly disappointing.
I love this book, it's one of my personal favorites. It has enough action/adventure to keep you listening, enough comedy to keep you laughing, and enough loving to be a romance novel.
I just wish I hadn't purchased the abridged version. It left a lot of stuff out, and rushed the conculsion. Read the real book, or get an unabridged copy. You'll be glad you did.
I love Linda Howard, and have this book in paper, but needed a copy to take with, and this one is it! Linda Howard is an author you can buy without knowing anything about the story. She never disappoints, and even though this is an abridged version and I miss a couple parts from the original, the rest is so good it's worth it! The narrator is FABULOUS, and I'm looking for any other books she's read. She's wonderful here, laugh out loud funny, and her voice is like an instrument she definitely knows how to play. If they can get her and do Open Season again unabridged, I'll buy that one too!
Linda Howard always writes a good, hot story. It's hard to believe that a woman would wait until her thrties for romance but other than that, the story was a lot of fun.
I've always loved Linda Howard's books and this one has been no exception in written form. However, I didn't care for this abridgement and the narrator wasn't good at all. You couldn't distinguish between the characters and her voice lacked emotion. Sadly, though I really liked this book when I read it myself, I did not like this version.
