Anne Stuart is great. I loved the first book. I took some time before I read, thinking she couldn't do it again. But I was wrong. Sexy and engrossing
If you read Ruthless, book one of the series, then you have already read this one. It is just a sad rehash, same plotline, same characters (ok, they are supposed to be the next generation, but they are just carbon copies), same subplots, same result. Save your money and just reread Ruthless.
This series really keeps me listening! The narrator, as well as the story, keep the "reader" deeply involved. Becoming a huge fan of this series! Will also look for more by this narrator.
I liked the story overall but there are so many scenes where the rambling goes on and on to fill pages. Yes, well after reading Laura Kinsale and listening to narrations by Nicholas Boulton, it is hard to not compare when you have had better. Page fillers are irritating. I almost rather have a short book filled with substance than have to listen to the same lines and insecurities relayed through the main characters over and over. It is also hard to find S. Erickson’s narration any better than what I would have done as a novice. She did not add at all to the story.
I did enjoy her passionate love scenes and the intensity built in between the main characters.
