While I mostly enjoyed the story, I would be hard pressed to recommend the reader of this book. I am truly enamored of Ann Flosnik as a reader and have a bad habit of comparing every female reader to her, and Susan Ericksen does not compare. All of her characters sounded alike, which was very distracting to the story. The bad boy lead sounded like a girl 99.9% of the time.
She didn't have any "voices". Every person in the book sounded alike so you couldn't always tell who was speaking.
I enjoyed the story, but if the rest of the series is narrated by Susan Ericksen, I probably wont download them.
I really, really liked this audio book. It's one of my absolute favorites as far as historical romance. And, let me say that Susan Ericksen does an EXTRAODINARY job of narrating. I mentioned the narrator first because I believe that it is the narrator who holds the interest of the listening audience. Some narrators are actors, Susan sounds like she understands and embraces the characters.
And Anne Stuart is an excellent writer who weaves a good, unpredictable, sexy, romantic story. I downloaded the second in this series and I may just say please refer to my earlier review.
I'd recommend this for romance lovers.
Ms Ericksen makes me completely forget that the book is being read to me. The characters are done well, and the men don't sound silly.
Tell us about yourself!
I would recommend this to anyone who likes historical romance. This was one of my favorite books ever.
Lord Rohan was so sexy. He was one of my favorite characters ever.
The British accents.
I laughed and cried and lusted after Lord Rohan.
The only thing that bothered me was that it ended rather abruptly and I felt like it needed an epilogue.
I prefer the audio version to the print version because of the narrator - Susan Ericksen is wonderful. I have enjoyed the whole series, read by her.
Yes I would listen again.
The story was very seductive/
When Rohan killed the fat man that took his loves flower.
Bought this book when it was on sale, and so glad that I took a chance on it. It's an absolutely spellbinding story, that I couldn't put it down once I got started. The characters are captivating, and the narrator brings every character to life, that I found myself imagining more of a movie, rather than just listening to a book. I'm going on to the next in the series.
This is the first time I have read/listened to a Anne Stuart book, I found it spellbinding, I couldn't wait to see how everything played out. The only thing I would have changed about the book was to have an epilogue or give a little more detail to the ending.
I am easily amused!
A historical romance in the finest fashion. Intriguing characters that draw you in and an unpredictable story that makes you sorry when you finish. I was instantly a fan of Anne Stuart after my first twenty minutes of listening. Makes me wish time would fly so I can get next months credits to finish the series.
