Listened to this book numerous times and it intrigues me and entertains me every time! I love the McCabe brothers:)
If these books were physical, tangible objects they would be worn out! I love everything about these books. The narrator really makes these books extra special. If you are looking for excellent characters, exciting story and action (on the battlefield and in the bed chamber), then give this series and all books by Maya Banks a try!
I had never read a book by Maya Banks, so I didn't know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised. The story was entertaining and I found myself looking forward to getting back to it whenever I had time to listen. The plot was very predictable though, with no surprises or twists. I bought it as part of a sale and it was well worth the minimal price. If you're looking for some light entertainment I don't think you'll be disappointed.
Three words can't describes this book. Real life love story, funny in parts and very hot sexy love scenes.
Marin, she fearful, loving and sexy.
When Ewan and Marin first kiss. It's not what the sister at the Abby told her about kissing
When Ewan finally admitted he loves Marin.
I would listen to this book again and again when I want to listen to a love story that could happen in any century.
The narrator had a great voice and their brogue for the Highlands of Scotland was perfect. She also did a great job distinguishing between men and women.
The h's relationship with the H's son Crispin. It was sweet and everything you would want in a parent/child relationship.
This is one of my favorites
I love Crispin. A sweet child that doesn't come across like an idiot. I really hope he gets his own book one day.
She did a good job differentiating of characters' voices. She is very articulate and easy to understand.
I don't generally laugh or cry at books, so no reaction like that, but I did really enjoy it.
I have read this book many a times before I broke down and got the audio book. This is not going to be a history lesson, or immersing you into life in this era. This is a romance novel, teetering on being a fluff piece. But it doesn't pretend to be anything else. It is an enjoyable piece when all is said and done. I don't know if I would have enjoyed it so much if it would be so faithful to its setting, so I can't say that is a flaw. I don't regret getting it, and have listened to it several times. One comment, though, is something about the ending doesn't sit well with me, don't enjoy it, so usually stop reading or listening a ways before the end; I am not sure why, but I do not enjoy the last part of the story.
I did enjoy it for the most part. Thought some of the scenes were a bit over the top and somewhat formula based.
I love stories about the Scots.
Narrator's attempt at a Scottish accent came off as slavic.
I will want to listen to books 2 and 3. Rionna was my favorite character.
These are not the best, but in the same vein as Julie Garwood.
