*~*~* I love all books erotica and romance. *~*~* A book is my safe place.
I got a paper back of this book a few years ago, and never forgot it. I was surprised and happy to see this in audio..this would be a #1 historical romance for me..so sweet , and a little smexy.Honors Splendour will also put a smile on your face and heart. Great HEA.
The Secret, same style of writing, and same author
I would give a 7 for Anne performance.
I felt both reactions and more
Worth a credit...Worth the cost...
The plot was meandering and the writing was groan-worthy quite frequently. The reader was really pretty monotonous, too. I often put on books on tape when I can't sleep at night and will gradually drift into sleep after an hour or so. This one has been putting me to sleep in minutes. I generally do not overly criticize the historical romance genre, taking the books for what they are, but this one was much worse than most I have read/heard. I can't tell if it would have gone differently had I read it myself, or if the reader has been the cause of me feeling like the writing was awful.
Everything: boring story, fake nerdy lead female character plus too perfect and enduring main male hero. Madeline combined personalities of medieval Mother Teresa and Marry Poppins. Was there something she could not do?
Below average. Usually, I like her performance, but not this one
Julie Garwood's books are excellent. I can't say the experience of listening to it was enjoyable. Its more that it's back round noise which is a shame because I have read this book twice before and it's a great story.
Great historical romance.
Susan Duerden or Rosalyn Landor.
If you like historical romances or Julie Garwood, read this book. Don't listen to it. Anne Flosnik doesn't do it justice. Its the second Julie Garwood book that I've listened to with Anne Flosnik narrating and I've been disappointed with both.
I would enjoy this book with a different narrator. (Davina Porter comes to mind).
This is a good book, but it was painful to listen to this narrator. Her voice was annoying and she had a way of dragging out the last portion of certain words that started to grate on my nerves.
Very good story and fantastic narration. I always enjoy Anne Flosnik's narration. I can't understand the negative feedback people give.
Although I appreciate that the lead female was not your typical character, I did find her annoying and weak. She comes across more like an addled old woman who is clueless about the world around her than a strong heroine. The continual lack of understanding of each other is somewhat forgivable as that is not that unrealistic with men and women, however it does wear thin.
Yes, she writes well and has convincing characters.
It is hard to voice a strong male character as a female, so I won't fault her too much for that. Overall she did well.
Some very steamy love scenes in this one. The author does not shy away from detail!
I get unreasonably attached to fictional characters
Anne Flosnik always does a fantastic job! The dialog in this novel was especially entertaining.
Sure - if they're desperate for a bit of fluff.
She really brings Madelyn in all her clumsy, hot-headed, contradictory glory to life.
No I don't care for and Ann Flosnik her voice is too nasal. I love Julie Garwood this is a good story. It's not one of her best, but it is funny.
Madeleine is my favorite female character. Duncan is my favorite male character. Madellaine is just tripping through life with rose-colored glasses, and Duncans just trying to keep her from getting hurt.
Very ,very ,nasally!
No I can't I listen while I work and am interrupted all the time. I actually like the books broken into sections.
Yes, I will eventually get all her books!
I've enjoyed other Julie Garwood books. Don't know what happened here.
I finished the book two days ago and can't even recall what it was about....... that's how much of an impression it made. I think breakfast had more of a lasting fond impression.
sure. the men were a bit off.
i wouldn't watch it, but i'm not a huge tv watcher.
