I love the story itself, I hardly write reviews and I have over 200 Audiobooks, but this one had me feeling that I just had to share something so that others would not hesitate to get this one. Maya Banks is an amazing writer and I love her books, but this one let me feel something, it made me feel so proud of Eveline and Graeme both. I was proud of her strength dealing with all that she encounters and for his Strength for standing up for her no matter what. Through the Narration I felt the love and all the feelings that these two people felt.
The most memorable moments is when Eveline finally opened up and spoke to Graeme, telling him all her fears and all about herself. That he felt protective and more love for her than he even realized made that moment so memorable for me
Graeme because of his strength, but Rory because she makes me smile.
The first time that Graeme and Eveline made love. That was touching that her opening up allowed them to reach a new level of closeness that they could finally come together as man and wife.
Sweet, tender, heartwarming
That in the end, the two clans overcome their animosity because they have found a common cause worth fighting for.
That she didn't overdo it in trying a Scottish accent.
Give me water to swim and surf in. That with a glass of white wine and the sun. That's heaven.
Yes, because of the depth the characters are unfolded to enable the listener to realize their driving motive.
When she made up he mind to move all her luggage to the Lairds Room
I liked the fact that Kirsten Potter brought the irish brogue out.
Really I love the audio. The only reason I even started reading this book was cause I ghetto audio. Kirsten Potter is amazing. She made me believe the characters were alive. She is such a talented narrator. I enjoy every book she reads.
Eveline is my favorite character. She is so sweet and innocent. You can't help but love her. There isn't anything about her you can't like.
My favorite scene is when Eveline yells for the women of the keep to get OUT!!! It broke my heart for all those women to be so mean to her. And when she talked for the first time in three years it was just amazing.
Yes, I had an extreme reaction to the book. In fact I had several. It made me laugh till I cried and cry till I laughed.
I recommend this book to anyone who loves Maya Banks and just good old fashion romance.
I bought this book largely on a whim and am glad that I did. I am really unfamiliar with genre - outside of the horrible tropes - and was very happy that this book really didn't fall into those too much. And the use of deafness, both how the heroine adapted during the time period - even using it to get out of a bad situation, and how others around her view the disability were interesting.
Plus both the main characters (and many of the background one) were really likeable (which I find can be a real problem sometimes - especially in fiction) and I ended up listening to it almost all in one go.
I would definitely recommend it. It was a fun little story - and a very easy listen.
Say something about yourself!
yes. the story is very charming and touching.
first time he tells her he loves her.
I will listen to this one again.
Now this is what a romance novel is supposed to be.
The story was simply enchanting.
The narration was superb. The Scottish accent wasn't over used and did not detract from the story.
Absolutely credit worthy.
I actually cried....
When she got on a horse to save Graham
Rory the little sister added great side characterization to enhance the plot
The HEROs kind and has a loving heart. Also the HEROINs ability to read lips.
The Narrator brought the Characters to life. Her accents were GREAT!
When Eveline screamed NO!
The narrator was absolutely amazing with the different characters. She brought them to life! Thank You!
There are many more detailed reviews so I will save the paragraphs and tell you this is not a hard core erotic novel, thankfully, it is a great contemporary romance set in the Highlands with a WONDERFUL narrator, a great and realistic story line and fascinating characters and heroin. Buy it, well worth it!!! Can't wait to start the next ones.
