I really enjoyed this book because Lord Ian isn't perfect. He is a flawed human being just like the rest of us. Nobody is perfect. The book is interesting and had me under it's spell from the beginning. Will download the rest of this series.
I listened to this book and although I did not like Angela Dawe's performance at all I decided to buy the second book because the story was really good. I did not like the second book, not even the story, but I gave a shoot to the third book and, thank God it was a little better. After that I skipped Hart's story and went strait to Fellows just because it was on sale otherwise I was probably given up on this series. I did like that one though, I thought the story was cute and by then I was used to Angela's voice but her performance again was not good. She needs to put the emotions in practice, she misses laughs, cry, anger etc...She might say " he laughed when he answered...." but when she does the voice of the person she misses the laugh. I probably sound weird but listen to Rosalyn Landor and you'll know what I'm talking about.
The story was not the best in this genre. But a good listen. But the narrator makes the the most disgusting gastric noises as she reads. It's disgusting! I can't believe the producers didn't edit this. And she does it in all the books in the series. Her dialect and tone are great, but the noises are quite distracting.
Take a Tums!
I really enjoyed this one. A lot of the Highland romances start to run together, but this one had a murder mystery along with the "madness" of the hero and it gave it more dimension. The narrator isn't perfect but she isn't bad at all. It's pricey for the length, but I thought it was worth a credit and I've already bought and started book two in the series.
Did not think I'd be a person to be swayed by narration style. But I think the problem is that I've listened to other REALLY well done Scottish accents (Davina Porter, Kaleo Griffith) that made this one sound washed out. 4 stars for story is only because I found some of the love scene dialogue to be corny. I moved to another series after listening to this first book. Shame... If you're not bothered by accents, you'll like the story. The hero is unique.
After every romance novel I've read since this one I find myself sighing and saying "well it's no Ian Mckenzie". This is the one to beat, in my heart of hearts.
A Well read story and so amazingly written! I am in awe of how well done all this is.
His brother's kiss.
Brilliant! Can't wait to keep reading/listening!
Lover of all books, especially Romance!
Well this is getting 5 stars all around because of the hero he is different than most historical hotties of late. There is a mix of characters that make you fall in love with each one for different reasons not to mention a "I didn't see that coming ending" which I liked. I really enjoyed the uniqueness of this book as the hero reminds me of an autistic genius!!!!! The narrator did a fantastic job and I hope to hear more books from her again.
This book was a very good listen I Totally recommend if you like English/Scottish aristocracy books! Defiantly worth a credit!
I LOVE SCOTTS!!!
When Ian realized that he loved, loved, loved Beth.... it's all warm and fuzzy!! And Ian's nephew was a hoot!!
She's overall a really great reader!! But I loved best her flexibility in switching between the English characters and the Scottsmen. Her interpretation of the story really came across in her reading and made an already good book that much more enjoyable!!
It made me laugh and it made me cry!! And it was very intriguing. Loved the story in general and trying to get to the bottom of the mystery. Ian's self discovery along the way was absolutely enjoyable and gave him an innocence that was heartwarming.
LOVED THIS BOOK. I can't wait to read the rest of the series!! Excellent Author!! Love the oh so hate-able McKenzie's!!!
