The whole thing was so alive and sumptuous! This is a book to lose yourself in and just . . .
Oh my! All I can say is this takes you on a ride of romance and love! One of the best I have listened to so far
Not bad. Plot moved along most of the time. Classic romance writing. Good narrAtor. Good for 4.95. Becky is orphan chattel. Threatened by Russian prince cousin. Hero is a whoring angel rake gambler who wins back her house. Modern attitudes in the 1800s
I have to admit... the book was a bit a slow at the beginning. After about 15 minutes or so, I was like OH MY! This book was so addictive. I just couldn't seem to get enough of it. I was very sad that there wasn't a Book 2. There must be more to Ava and Alex. This is defiantly worth a credit.
This book was ok. It is supposed to be a historical romance. Some of the phrases used by the characters were too modern. I know this is nitpicking but it still caught my attention. Formulaic and ordinary. An ok story, really nothing very special about it.
Pretty good story but I didn't like the modern phrases - they yanked me right out of the listening experience because it was jarring in an historical novel - 'head games' - really? Quite a bit of sex in this one, so if you don't like that sort of thing, pick something else.
The hero gets to be heroic and the heroine is plucky - I liked that.
This was my first novel by this author - I don't believe I'll look for or buy anymore as based on reviews on another site, the language problem is common in her work.
I love Epic Fantasy....have become a Historical Romance fan because I am a sucker for a good Happily Ever After. Good characters are a must
Alex and Becky are wonderful characters. This book has danger, mystery, love, friendships, and a fulfilling ending. The only thing that was a bit off putting were the pet names the H&H had for each other. Too many....too weird.... I have no problem with a pet name....but it is just weird in this book.
As reader I urge the authors to put some personality in lead characters n some honor
The female is frightened n he is thinking of bedding her. Totally selfish n self serving
Cannot continue this book n will accept credit losses n mark the author for poor taste
