I was happy to find this on Audibles, I have read the other books in this series and found this one to be just as good. I like that Stephanie Laurens' female leads are smart and quick minded. It is so much fun reading her writing and the performance was done perfectly.
I have been hooked on Stephanie Lauren's Cynster series for years and realized, for the first time that what I truly enjoyed was Simon Prebble's reading. This time I could barely manage to listen to the end; Matthew Brenher was utterly disappointing - made the story seem quite boring.
Alas, it seems Mr. Prebble has moved on to other authors and in my opinion it is Ms. Laurens's loss.
Love to read!
The story line wasn't bad, but it was really drawn out. I had to make myself finish the book several times and it took me weeks to finish it. I wasn't fond of Angelica (the main female character) at first, but she grew on me as the story line developed. The main male character had no real personality. Maybe that was partly due to the performance, but definitely not all. I'm not sure I would recommend this to anyone. Maybe if it were free or on sale, but I wouldn't waste a credit or buy it at full price.
Both versions are wonderful, but the audio edition is my favorite because I can actually close my eyes and imagine the story. It's nice to just lie back and let someone tell you a story.
The Earl, of course. He has been reviled in the earlier books of the series as a kidnapper, someone to be caught and imprisoned. In this story you get to actually find out what drives him and why he has behaved the way he has.
The scene at the waterfall at the end. It's tense and suspenseful.
so much anticipation with this and it just popped into place very nicely from the first page. what was the point? the build up of the 2 was very flat. no development or tension. what a waste of a hero!! and looking for a goblet - are we still Grimms fairytales? really lame. also it was not a believable story with 3 kidnappings etc. there should have been a little more meat on the bone.
shame as it could have been sooo muh better.
Ms. laurens - a little more planning for the next one please!
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 I must say was surpisingly delicious! It was an absolute delight compared to the two previous in this series. Stephanie did a great job with this book which in my eyes made up for the first two books! It also ended really well, I was so happy we got to experience the wedding and not just wonder if they happened and when. The narrator also did well enough, I would have loved Simon Pebble to have read but Antony did a good job. I would recommend anyone to read/listen to this trilogy.
I always enjoy Stephanie Laurens novels. She supplies romance, wit and humor in her stories. Although Matthew Brenher is a fabulous narrator, I prefer female narrators for romance novels.
cannot read small print so audio is my prefrence
the eight earl of glencrae
matthew brings life to this trilogy story
yes this was the most exciting absolutely loved this bookunfortunately it took two days only cause i had to charge my kindle
must read trilogy done in sequence
It was one of the books I have been counting the days for it's release and gone beyond my expectations. I have listened to it twice and gone back to certain scenes to savor.
The Devil's Bride, by the same Author, the exciting plot, the reinforcement of the family values and the strength of the characters.
Matthew Brenher worked out the pace wonderfully, each one of the feelings portrayed in the tremors of his voice, He performed a perfect Dominic and the rest of the Cynster's and I recommend he get Devil's Voice better it's more serious and deeper in other books and I think it wold mach the quality of his leadership. The female voices were perfect.
I was profoundly moved by the Love scenes, they had a Spiritual finess related to the truth of each other in such intimacy.
