This was my first book from Maya Banks, and she is a very talented author. I'm totally hooked. The reviews are correct - this book rocks! Ms. Banks does a great job developing very interesting characters. The heroine, Eveline, is a deaf, strong, intelligent woman who I just loved, and Graeme, the hero, is a wonderful, rugged, almost perfect man. The comination of the characters made for a wondeful romance. The narrator, Kirsten Potter, is aboslutely superb - she is one of the best female narrators I've listed to. I can't wait to listen to the next book in the series!
Given an impossible situation and past, they overcame their family's hatred and her tragedy to forgive and fall in love.
My favorite scene was when they declare their love for each other.
Triumph over tragedy and animosity
The story is not cheesy like the book cover and title.

I love, love, loved this book. I cannot come up with a single thing about this book that I disliked.
It starts off somewhat touchily as we're dealing with a female character that is believed to be crazy. That's not a normal starting point for a romance novel.
I did a lot of sad & sappy crying during this book. The fact that it sucked me in so thoroughly and brought out such strong emotions, to me, makes it even better. If you're not into the emotional read then maybe this isn't the best option for you. As emotional as it was though, it wasn't a heavy read at all.
I actually read this book when it came out and decided to buy the audible version because I enjoyed Grame and Eveline's story. Maya Banks has not let me down and I so looking forward to Bowen's story.
There's a reason why this book was voted best romance suspense in 2012 and it does not disappoint. I was pleasantly surprised not knowing or ever heard of this author. I've now read about 4 of her books and enjoyed them all.

It is at the top the narration was great. I can't wait for book two!
I was so happy Gramm loved Eveline even after he found out she is deaf.
Krsten Potter is a great narrater

The gentle acceptance received by her new husband.
the moment where each of them realized their love for each other
great job with expression in her voice and the accents
all the gentle moments
After the great reviews, I was afraid the big build up would lead to disappointment. But this listen was all everyone said it would be. Fell in love with this storyline from the start and listened to the whole thing in two days. Could not turn it off. I love this author, the last series I listened to from her was great. But this surpassed it. Cannot wait for the next book in the series to come out!!!
the feeling as if your standing,watching it all unfold before your eyes
hope. Evaline struggles against her own "handicaps" and wanting to be accepted
