This book, along with the other two is well written, but Emma Greene is NOT complimentary to all the work Gaelen Foley goes to in writing books. If there is any way Audible can let Gaelen Foley know how the public feels about the narrator, by all means, please let him/her know.
I was so excited a when I saw audible continued carrying Gaelen Foley's books. It will be even more pleasant to see if a new narrator will be chosen. At this point, I will NOT spend any more money to listen to her/his books if Emma Greene is the narrator!

I would recommend the book not so much the audiobook. The narrator does such a great job over all but her male voice is awful and doesn't make sense as she is more manly when speaking in the female voice. If she would have not tried to change the male voice this could have been a worthy listen, as it stands the story is what held my interest.
None that I can think of off the top of my head.
The narration had issues, while the voice was pleasant, when the narrator voiced the male lead she spoke as if she was an old lady. When she voiced the heroine she kept her voice more normal sounding and ended up sounding better. If she had kept that voice for the male perhaps the narration would be better.
I am being repetitive, but this is kind of why we buy audio books for someone to tell us a story and a narration can really hurt the story. This one almost hurt the story but it was not so terrible that I wanted to stop listening completely.
Not into romance novels being made into movies.
The story is interesting, it has some twists and I liked that we knew who the bad guy was right off. I liked the male lead he was tortured in ways that made sense, even if the narrator butchered his voice. I really liked the female lead, she was not stupid and had a sense of who she was.
Worth the sale price, probably would not waste a credit though as the narration is not great.
Yes, I would try another book from Galelen Foley as long as it is not narrated by Emma Greene.
Sorry, I would not due to the narrator
Her male voices, other than that I enjoyed Emma's reading but, without the strong present of men the story losses something
Someone else reading the male parts
I wish this book could be re-recorded with a different narrator.
Yes. The reader and or director were so bad as the voice of the hero ( Damien) that I could not maintain any focus with the plot. It is unbelievable that someone didn't notice that this character sounded like an 80 year old woman which made the dialog so distracting from the plot that I was tempted to ask for my money back. I was determined not to buy any more of the authors books.
The plot was imaginative and very different.
Not with the same reader.
I am quiet and love being comfortable. I love curling up in a corner either reading or listening to a nice romantic book.
This book itself was really good however, the narrator made it just bareble! I vow to not read another book read by this narrator, the voice of the hero made him out to be an old timid mouse and not the young magnificent Colonel that he should have been. What more can I say? the narrator was horrible!!!
This narrator requires training on phrasing and pronunciation. Her work on this book made it very hard for this listener to enjoy the story. I listened to the end only because I like the authors' work.
Sadly the narrator really destroyed the story. Her voice acting was beyond terrible the hero sounded really creepy. I can't imagine why anyone allowed this audible version to be released. I would never listen to this narrator read another romance novel!
Narrator is one of the worst I have ever listened to. I have read this story multiple times. I have read the entire Knight Miscellany series multiple times and recommend them to anyone who reads romances. The series is wonderful as a whole, and Lord of Ice is my favourite. This narration, however, really made it difficult to the enjoy the story. I was continually distracted by Greene's false accents. Her narration is forced the entire way through, as many reviews have mentioned the hero's voice is unbelievably terrible. Greene narrates as if she is mocking the story. Very disappointing. Please do not judge Lord of Ice or Foly based on this production. Miranda and Damien do not sound so aggravatingly stupid when read in a normal manner.
I read this series along time ago and it is still one of my favorites. I listen to books much more often now and wish to find much loved books on audio.
But the narration is just horrible. Please find some one to do this great series justice.
