This book is my favorite! I love how you instantly dislike Robert and how Dougalas allows him to treat her. Her desperation at being abandoned through the wonder of Nicolas conming forward in time to her. The love story between Nickolas and Douglas, then his abrupt return to his own time.
The detailed account of Douglas in the 16th sentury and their 2nd love story was almost like another book. Of course she had to return to her own time and the story is beautifully tied up with a satisfying conclusion. I wish it were one of a series so I could enjoy the stories of the secondary characters.
A bit corny but managed to keep my interest. Not a literary masterpiece! But narrator was NOT a good choice for this story. He sounded like a feminine gay man when he read as Douglas...because he was so mismatched, I have to admit the love scenes were almost comical...,I might try reading the book if only I can get his narration out of my mind...
Tell us about yourself! I love historical romances, paranormal, some bios, Different countries.
Loved the story, but Steve West wasn't too good at doing a woman's voice. It was rather distracting & had a hard time trying to see in my head a woman. He sounded more like Tom Hanks when played on that show where he dressed as a female. He didn't sound like a women either. Otherwise it was good. Maybe next time it will actually be a women's voice doing the part.
I am very surprised I enjoyed this book so much. It is corny at times, but I laughed and yes, occasionally felt tears eyed.
JD did a wonderful job of pulling me into the story. No matter how many times I rolled my eyes and said, "If Douglas cries ONE MORE TIME..." I found I couldn't wait to get in the car and find out what happened!
You won't be disappointed with this fun, totally imaginative story.
really loved this audiobook, it is actually my first and I truly enjoyed it.. The narrator was a man and the female characters he did well but were a stretch for me, due to my unfamiliarity with audio books. I definitely recommend this book and would listen to it again.
I love romance, MG, and YA books.
Angsty and delicious.
Steve West has a great voice, but I had to turn the reading speed up because he reads very slow and precisely. I loved his accent.
Once we get to the hero - Nicholas Stafford, Earl of Thornwyck - the story picks up quite a bit.
I read this book when I was in the 8th grade 2x...I'm now 40 and decided to try audibles. Steve West brought this book to life and ensued the same feelings I had as a young girl. Happiness sadness and believing in true love. Jude Devereaux will always be one of my number 1 authors. What an amazing story and narrator.
