Books? ... Yes Please
I believe I would have enjoyed the book a whole lot more, if not for the narration. I don't feel it is fair to say it was a poor book, just a poor narrator.
If you think this is an anthology, since there are 3 authors, you would be wrong. If you think this reminds you of an anthology since there are 3 authors, you would be right. I applaud the unique way this book, (and its predecessor: The Lady Most Likely), is able to combine the 3 voices of 3 talented authors. No surprises, if you've read them before, they are true to form. Solid writing, a bit whimsical, light and entertaining.I recommend this book if you enjoy short stories, for while the novel is seamless, there isn't the depth or character development of a regular novel, so at the end you feel like when you've just eaten one half of the candy bar. It was sweet, it was enough, but you end up wanting more.I recommend this for any short story, anthology aficionados, but if you are looking for a long romance with all the twist, turns and plotting devices we have come to enjoy, you might be disappointed. But give it a try, it's a nice way to get your fix from Quinn, Brockway and James, while we wait for them to release a full length novel with all the gripping parts that keeps us hooked!
Graduated college, got a job, got married, traveled, had children. Breathing air and growing hair.
This book has such a great storyline. Not to spoil this for ya but the story begins with heiresses being kidnapped by this crazy Scottish Laird so one of his male relatives will marry and save his castle. I really enjoyed all three stories. I was a light read with fine character development and wonderful writing My only complaint is that the scottish lairds voice is either edited poorly or just narrated with too much harsh garbling for my taste. The other characters are well done. I listed to Lady Most Likely and liked that as well. Susan Duerden usually does a better than average job. Her narration of the Desperate Duchesses by Eloisa James is a much better display of this talented narrator.
I love Susan Duerden! She did well with all the different characters. Her Scottish accent wasn't perfect but it wasn't so terrible either.
This book was really funny. At times it was a little predictable but it was mostly a light and fast paced listen, which was nice!
