Love to Read!! Everything
One of the top romance stories I have listen to or read.
The point where Eveline speaks for the first time since her accident....or rathers screams.
The voices....it is perfect. She handled the actors mood and tones great!!!
I love the point where she (Eveline) rescues Graeman, and the point where he discovers her missing and knows how much he loves her.
It is a great story where the heroine has a disability and the hero admires her for overcoming and living in spite of it.
I love Epic Fantasy....have become a Historical Romance fan because I am a sucker for a good Happily Ever After. Good characters are a must
Yes. This book has a TWIST. All of the books in the Montgomery and Armstrong series seem to have the same element of a character with a "difference" (don't want to give it away because I was pleasantly shocked!). Eveline is a terrifically thought out and written character. Her interactions with all the other characters make this a fun and impossible to pause listen.
Banks's In Bed With A Highlander....... Strong Laird not expecting to fall in love with the bride he is "forced" to marry. That's an overwhelming theme in most Highland Romance books, but Banks does such a good job with adding and twisting the "same ol' same ol'" until it is new.
It also has it's steamy scenes...but not quite as hot and steamy as In Bed with a Highlander.
Still the very best there is! She makes me lose myself in every book she narrates. She is the PERFECT ACCENT narrator. They ALL sound real and so believable. Men and women and children alike... She is THE BEST!
There were a few moments that I smiled and laughed and cried....but my favorite is when Rory and Eveline are moving Evelines things down the hall.....wonderful scene.
One thing I will say...and the only real negative comment is that this book is NOT named very well. I think the name could have been more thought out and have more meaning to the direction of the story....but that's a petty complaint I know! While the Montgomery and Armstrong Series is WONDERFUL....it is not quite as good as Banks's McCabe Series. The McCabe Series is my all time favorite....Montgomery and Armstrong series is a close second! Banks is BRILLIANT! I wish she wrote only highland romances because she does them so perfectly.
Enchanting, Loving, Champions
Evaline, a true champion of any clan and a true champion of their hearts.
She has found voices for everyone. They are all different, and easy listening.
Yes, I couldn't stop. I was very hesitant to purchase this, but was I wrong it was very enjoyable and have already recommended to a friend.
Looking forward to book 2
This is my first book by Maya Banks. I can see why so many women like this book. However, it is way to cheesy for me. I usually don't mind cheesy romance novels as long as they are paranormal and sci-fi.
Kirsten Potter is absolutely fantastic, as usual.
Veers from the standard romance template and brings a story with heart. I was emotionally invested in this story and thoroughly enjoyed it. Great narration by Kirsten Potter. Maya Banks definitely has found her genre with her Highlander novels. Buy this one and listen to it again and again.
One of the most intriguing heroines of a romance novel I've come across in a long time. Well-drawn characters and compelling story of deception, misunderstanding, and deep emotions. Scottish clans were notorious for their rivalries and enduring feuds, which makes the depth of animosity believable. And fantastic narration. If this series can maintain this standard, it will be one for the record books.
I am a busy sports mom listening to romance only. If the narrator is good and it has a decent plot, I will find it enjoyable.
Traditionally historical romance.
In Bed with a HIghlander, Seduction of a Highland Lass, and Never Love a Highlander. If you like these books by Maya Banks, you will like this one. Strong warriors who love and protect their women.
When she spoke.
Say something about yourself!
This is book one of the Montgomery Armstrong books...I already listened to book two which was not as good to me...this book was really good. It had adventure, mistrust, chemistry, the buildup of love...it wasn't instant, and the "drama" of the book was very real and plausible.
Overall I would have given it a 5 but there was just not enough intensity...it was a light listen, and I would highly recomend it. Trust me when I say I am not a fan of historical romance...but this one was really great.
I only have the Audio and it was better than a read. I listened to the whole Series and can't wait for the next one! Hurry up Audible
Evellen, it was amazing how she managed the transition between all the different characters. This series is captivating and very well done by Kirsten Potter. I will look for more books this nararator.
The Story and the series was so well done, it took you from scene to scene making you want more there is not any one moment that was better than another.
Highly pleased with this Audio Experience!!
