Passion mystery and an autistic man? You will probably think no thank this doesn't sound right, but let me tell you! Ian is so sexy and so appealing. Narrator did a great job too. The story flowed right, not too long good amounts of sex passion and teasing over all well balance and one book I keep listening to
Weird Scottish accent and slow moving performance. The story was mediocre and has some long winded explanations of uninteresting points.
This book was terrible, and the narrators awful version of Scottish was the pits. The story line is mediocre, predictable, and almost embarrassing. It is quasi erotica- too much sex to listen out loud, but the description and quality of writing were not worth the time. My compulsive self listened to the utterly predictable end because I paid $3.95 for it- I guess you get what you pay for. Do not use a credit on this book. If you are looking for period works, or erotica, you'll find better elsewhere.
I listen to/read a wide variety of genres, but this novel is one of my top five favorite romances of all time. I should probably say that it is right at number two after Rues For a Proper Governess.
I adore Ian because he so adores Beth in his own way while still remaining manly and virile. I love Beth, as well, because she is witty and understands and accepts Ian, as he is. However, of the two, Ian is my favorite.
Dawe did a good job with the accents and Ian's voice, giving him character without over animating him, since he is written as someone with Asperger's syndrome.
I lost a lot of sleep listening to this book TWICE already. I hated to put it down long enough to do other things, but, then, food and showers are highly over rated.
It is nice to listen to a love story where the main characters seem to love each other early on, even if they are not sure of it. Still, they treat each other as though they do. I loved that Beth did not succumb to any silly suspicions about Ian, creating one of those done to death "misunderstandings" that so many books are riddled with.
Wow! I really love this book. It was more than I expected in an historical romance. There was so much about the character of Ian that I loved. It is great to see that a person with mild autism couldn't be the hero in the story. There's a lot of historical significance for the time on how they treated illness. It is also almost like an Agatha Christie book with a mystery that needs to be solved. And we get a surprise ending too. Basically I loved the book.
I simply loved the storyline. The uniqueness of the hero and heroin and especially the revelation near the end. I am looking forward to more from this author.
I'm not that into period stories, but the ratings were so good, I thought I'd give it a shot. The sing-song, up speak style of the narrator was so TERRIBLE that I stopped listening in chapter four. If you must listen to this, get a lobotomy first!
I actually listen to Christmas with the Mackenzie first and fell in love with Ian and Beth. Had to go get this book and I was so no disappointed it was all I hoped for and more.
