Read the book. Madelyn's voice sounds much better in your head than this narrator. She draws one syllable and makes it three. How could they ruin it that way. Who chose this person it read it.
Yes, it had all the right stuff fair maidens, honorable heroes. dastardly villains, and many surprises.
The lady Madelaine, she had the innocence, and the courage of her convictions and she changed things in her life and that of others with ease while still keeping her innocence.
When Lady Madelaine set the lord free and warmed his frozen feet.
In search of the next great Cindarella story
The bones of the store had good intentions, however, she poured it on too much on some point going over the top to the unbelievable
I did finish it but I did fast forward over some parts
I thing you either love or hate Julie Garwood, this is my second book I tried of hers.... I am now hanging up my hat.
This may be a great story, Garwood has been a favorite author for 15+ years. But the reading is terrible! Seriously, since when did Uppercrust and Limey Englishmen mix in the middle ages? Some stories can be pleasantly read without acting them out so poorly. I regret this purchase.
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.
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.
