The storyline about dealing with deafness is in my opinion an interesting social study. It made the story much richer than just a titilating romance. The characters were clearly profiled as to how each one deal with defects in someone else against a backdrop of political intrigue, cultural norms and personal issues. Positively surprised!
This is definitely in the top 10, great story, fun and intriguing characters.
This is comparable to Julie Garwood or Jude Deveraux novels. I hated stopping, since I listen at work and I do have to stop to go home.
Kirsten Potter is a new favorite narrator for me. She has my vote for sure.
There were scenes that I felt their joy and their sadness.
The first chapter started out slow. But this was a wonderful heartwarming story. It is a wonderful book . I enjoyed it. The author did a great job the reader was phenomenal.
I've never read another Maya Banks book that I loved more than this one. The story was incredibly entertaining. Every one of the characters was lovable and endearing. The men were so alpha and awesome. And Evaline was the kind of heroine you fall in love with.
Kirsten Potter is INCREDIBLE. Her Scottish accents were spot on. I'm seriously blown away with how brilliant she was. I have listened to her read a few of JD Tyler's Alpha Pack books, and loved her then too. But in this book, she really shined. I cannot wait to listen to the next book in this series!
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
This is a great Highlander romance. If you're in the mood for a damsel in distress type of book, which sometimes I am, this is a good one to get. I loved Ghram and totally want him to be made flesh and blood, not just a figment of my imagination. He was so sweet and tough at the same time. I will also admit the story had me in tears a few times. The author did a great job making me empathetic towards the characters, yet at the same time pissed off at all the asshole clansmen for their behavior. Maya Banks as an author is sometimes a hit or miss for me. While admittedly I haven't read much by her and what I have read most has been good. A few that were not so great, but still not too bad. Since Audible doesn't have this whole series, I will probably just wait to get the next book on a sale. Narrator does a good job.
Excellent narration ... unique plot ! Agoid read and the writer has the ability to take you to that far of land 😁😁😁😁
I have been an avid reader for over 40 years. But discovering audible allows me to enjoy my books while doing chores and driving!
Maya Banks is a master story teller, and when she puts her pen to historical romance, you can bet it will be a winner. This story of Eveline Armstrong and Graeme Montgomery is no exception.
The setting is Scotland, rife with clan fighting and intricate politics. In an effort to settle the strife between clans, Eveline and Graeme are ordered to marry, despite the animosity between their clans. Needless to say, neither is thrilled about the alliance. Eveline lost her hearing in an accident, but she has allowed everyone to believe the accident caused her to be "daft." in order to escape another arranged marriage to an evil suitor. But there is no escaping the order to marry Graeme. So she is faced with marriage to a man she cannot communicate with, and who believes she is crazy. Graeme dreads marriage to a woman who is "daft", but he is an honorable man who is determined to keep his vows.
The supporting cast of characters is just as well developed as the hero and heroine. The reader grows to love Graems sister and gruff brothers, and to hate the vengeful Montgomery clans people who torment Eveline. And Graeme's innate honorability and protective instincts allow him to see past the facade that Eveline has hidden behind to find the very smart and lively woman that lies benieath. In time, he comes to realize that she is perfectly sane, and is merely deaf! Their growing relationship blossoms into an epic love! Of course!
Kirsten Potter is a delightful narrator. Her Scottish accents help to immerse you in Scotland. I would give her 5 stars except I have a secret prejudice for having my romances read by men. Sorry, my bad! Ms. Potter is truly a very good narrator!
