I had so much trouble trying to hear this book, and the previous book in this series. I had to drive with my ear to the speaker and I don't think that is the safest way to drive. Why not record audio books as loud as possible? I can turn my speakers down, it is not possible to turn them up more than full volume. .
I feel a tad silly for saying, but this one really pulled me in. It was hard to stop reading, and I paid for it when it made me blush in public at the contents when I listened during my commute. I liked it much better than the first book (though I do still like Mairin and Ewan's characters), the plot was better. Though I'm still uncomfortable about all of the attacks they are suffering. I wasn't so sure if someone wouldn't survive. It made me laugh several times too. All around enjoyable read.
Good narration, though sometimes hard to tell apart the men's voices
The story is right at the top of my list. It starts off with action and then you go on an emotional roller coaster ride, it just keeps on going.
For me it's up there with The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie by Jennifer Ashley. The story line of all 3 of MB books are well written and highly enjoyable.
I liked her voice, but she fell short when it came to the men's voices.
The passion between Keely and Alaric was hot. However, when Keely and Alaric knew they couldn't be together and when Alaric's wedding started... that was heart wrenching. You could feel their pain. I also enjoyed the part when Keely found out why Rionna abandoned her. I don't want to give away the story, but the book is really good.
All three books are a must read and if you like passion in your books, you won't be disappointed.
There was a common antagonist throughout the series that helped with the overall continuity of the storyline. Not to mention the great love scenes. Maya Banks is a great story teller.
I might have some problems with this author's "present time" romances, but her historical works are always a sure bet. Her characters, especially her female characters, are always endearing and competent, not showing an amazing lack of intelligence that so many historical romances do. Her writing gives enough sense of emotion without overdoing it, and is not inundated with so much "Shakespearian" prose. The narrator does a remarkable job with not giving the many characters silly sounding voices or having bad talking habits that distract the reader (listener) from this beautiful story.
I liked the story line and the narrator
after she was hurt.
Her voice was pleasant
reviews for fun
For a book to bring tears to my eyes it has to be well done. It certainly touched me. Not too many books have done that. Good story, good narrator.
Texas girl, living in Montana. Love reading, love Audible. My job is less stressful because of Audible.
I listened to this book unaware that it was actually book two in a three part series. Still it does stand alone with a great story and ending. Now that I am aware of the other two books I will use my credit (which I got yesterday) and listen to book three, then go back to the beginning. The story is a bit heartbreaking, but it does end well. I can't wait for someone to finally do away with the bad guy! I'm sure it will be in book three ("Never Love a Highlander). The first book is "In Bed with a Highlander."
Since this is really one of the first "romance" novels that I have listen to, I have nothing to compare it to. I have been reading and listening to many "Pride and Prejudice" fan-fictions along with "North and South" fan-fictions but those contain pretty much the same characters, story lines and conflicts, so I don't count them. Maya Banks is really my first true romance novel author for me and if the rest of her books are anything like this one, I will continue to purchase her books until I've read them all!
The raw emotions and the accents. She does a great job of making each character unique and that makes the book come alive.
The end made me cry (so my co-workers were wondering what my problem was) but then it ended well, so I was happy in the end. I would have loved to see the story continue a few more chapters, but I'm hoping that the third book in this series does cover some of this story ending.
Didn't read the printed version.
When he was holding her outside thinking she was dying. I believed she was dying and tears were close.
All of them.
Most definitely. Didn't want to stop listening, even at work.
I wish I would have listened to the first book before listening to the second book first.
