Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
This is an okay story, I give it a 3.5 overall. The narrator was good, some of the accents weren't great but she did a pretty good job. There didn't seem to have much depth to the romance. The main characters seemed to be instantly in love but not a lot of lead up, I was starting to wonder when the ravishing would begin, finally something started to happen. I am not a fan of the heroine, she is perfect, can do no wrong and can make any man fall instantly in love with her. Pleassse. She must be a saint or a "beguiling angel spun from the harp strings of heaven". The story did pick up and I enjoyed the ending better than the beginning. I don't know if I will continue on with the remaining series. Probably if they come on sale, but I won't be rushing to get the next one.
My goodness, if there is a portal opening to this particular MacGregor era, id be the first to sign in, Paula Quinn please don't fail to announce it. This series got me tied so good and robbed from my routine.
A Big 5 to both the author and the narrator. Even after I finished listening, the burr and the brawny highlanders kept ringing and filling my head. I even caught myself repeating the dialogues. Ravished indeed.
Verra verra much a credit worthy listen.
The story wasn't too bad; but I wouldn't call it memorable. The narration was certainly acceptable, and far above others that I've listened to. Overall, a simple, enjoyable story, though not one that had me listening every chance I got.
Although I enjoyed the storyline... it was buried under layers and layers and layers of repetitive discriptions of feelings, body discriptions, emotions... etc
Like I said the story was good, it would have been better had the author limited her discriptions. Towards the end it felt like she was just filling pages. It became a little frustrating.
I really enjoyed this story and the narrator did an excellent job. Now that I have started reading about the McGregor clan I have to keep going and will listen to the the rest of the Children of the Mist series. I rarely review, so when I do, it means I really like it
It was an okey book but if it wasn't on sale I would not have got it
Love to read!
I didn't LOVE this book, but I enjoyed it. There wasn't anything specifically "wrong" with it to make me not give it a 5 star rating, it just wasn't very memorable. The characters were likable and the plot was pretty good. There was sufficient romance and action. It wasn't boring or drawn out in parts. There was just something missing. It is definitely worth buying if it is on sale for $5 or if you have an extra credit.
In terms of performance, everything was very good EXCEPT the voice of Davina, the main female character. Sometimes the narrator made her sound like she was a 60 year old yuppie. Thank goodness, she actually didn't speak that much. It really got on my nerves.
I didn't make it beyond the first part of this book. The male lead is the happiest-go-lucky highlander I've ever seen in literature. He's better suited to a childrens' story than a romance. The attraction between the two main characters lacks depth, the accents are unbearable...sometimes sounding almost Hispanic at times, sometimes east Indian...rarely Scottish. There are way to many stock descriptions. The writing seems amateur, the narrator is lacking, and the motivations of the characters are underdeveloped. I would not buy this author again.
Yes, I would.
Not too bad
I bought this book because of all the great reviews but after listening to it, I'm not all sure why. The story was nice. The hero and heroine fell too easily in love. There were really no fighting it at all. It was too easily predicted what would happened at then end. There were really no obstacles. Don't get me wrong, the obstacles were thought off but never really came to be. As I said, there were really no fighting it. They came too easily to be. Overall, though, it was a 3 star. Not all that great but not all that bad.
this was too predictable and shallow. I love highlander stories and have read many good ones. this is not one of them.
