Historical romance junkie. Who doesn't love romance?
A beautiful love story between two very flawed people, Ian, who today would probably be labeled slightly autistic and Beth whose childhood was rough and ever changing. The author brings them together quickly and then let's their story play out as it will. The couples flaws are the things that help them understand each other. I loved Ian's ability to understand the things most of us over look and Beth's ability to understand a man others thought was mad. Ian's family has the best intentions when they try to protect him from the outside world but Ian is a man with a mind of his own. I loved the way the authors understands Ian's disability and how it affects him. The narrator Angela Dawe does an excellent job with all the voices. Each character has its own personality and the listener can distinguish each one by its personality. I enjoyed this story so much I am going on to listen to the other books in this series.
Absolutely, It was a fun read with an interesting Hero and Heroine.
I don't want to give anything away but it has to do with the inspector and his reasoning for getting so called justice on this family.
You will fall in love with Ian. He as autism and he continues to fight it for the women he loves is just beautiful.
I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
Ian is so great. He is not mad but then again, he is completely mad!
I like how Beth could tell right away there was something interesting about him. I love the bluntness of Ian. The fact that he was so direct made him seem mad to everyone, but not to Beth, his Beth. Very cute story. The bed talk was just so cute and funny, but so erotic at the same time. Very good. Worth the credit.
“I love all genres of books, however when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
The Mackenzie family was interesting as a whole, but the character of Ian was very captivating. The concept is very unique and was well executed by the author. Overall, this is one of the best historical romance novels I have read.
Angela Dawe's expressionless delivery style baffles me. This was a hot book that she turned into a dirge. I want to yell "wake up!" when she goes into drone mode. British accents are inconsistent and unconvincing.
I'm addicted to audiobooks. I've listened to probably 300 (maybe more) audiobooks most of which are historical romances. Listening is much easier than reading and you can do other things while listening. When reading you can't do anything but read.
I liked Beth. I like that she wasn't cowed by the mighty Mackenzie brothers. She stood her ground and really stood up to Hart.
After Beth had been stabbed and was dying, Ian never left her side. Most men wouldn't have been able to care for her, but due his oddities he had read all of the nursing and doctors manuals and was able to provide better care for her than anyone could have imagined.
I also like that his brothers weren't afraid to shed a few tears. They love each other even though they may have a hard time showing it or may show it in awkward ways - they still love each other very much.
This is my first Angela Dawe and I'll be listening to more by Ms. Dawe. I thought she did a great job.
This is my first Jennifer Ashley book and I like that she took on condition that is rarely discussed (Aspberger's syndrome) and I'm glad that she also added a bit of a mystery. She writes well and obviously did her research. I've already started reading the second book in the series and will probably buy the audio version too.
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
I would say it's a little better than average. I like it because the male lead character is different than most because of his mental/social problems.
I think it's worth your credit, especially if you like this genre of book.
Yes I would ,This is the first and the best in the series. You can't help but root for Lord Ian.
The story was great and Angela Dawe was awesome. I loved this story. So much so I listened to it twice! I liked the fact that Ian, although the protector was also fragile and vulnerable, while at the same time had such strength of character, but most importantly he was sincere. I was happy that Beth did not give up on him although he had some obvious disabilities. I liked the fact that the story line was not obvious. I can't say enough. I liked the book so much I don't think that I will wait for credits to purchase the rest of the series.
I have listened to this book about five times now, and I still love Ian and Beth!
I really like how Beth stood up to the MacKenzie brothers. She was able to understand and see past the problems Ian faced. She saw him for the "Man" he really was! She was strong and smart, her own women, just as Ian was his own man.
I think this was the first listen, but it will not be my last.
My heart hurt for Ian. Hearing about the things he went through while they tried to "fix" him. It broke my heart! It made him strong.
I liked this book. I went out and got the paperback to add to my personal library just so I can read it when I'm traveling.
