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
I absolutely LOVED this book! It was a perfect...."I don't want to think, just want to hear a good sweet romance" kinda book. I was THRILLED that the main characters actually started the real romance in the first to middle part of the book instead of the last 20 minutes like so many other books seem to do. You get to enjoy Vincent and Grace's relationship as it blossoms. The plot is a little different than most of these historical romances and I was interested in the plot aside from the romance as well.
There were moments I got teary eyed, moments when I burst out laughing, and moments of frustration (but thankfully very few of those). This book was better than Silent Revenge but I also loved Silent Revenge.
Sarah Coomes does a fine job. She is a good narrator...maybe not great, but I don't think she takes away from the book at all.
I would listen to this book again.
CREDIT WORTHY ---- YES!!!!! BUT it is so inexpensive I would buy it and as CAROLYN says "save your credits for a more expensive book"
An interesting premise ruined by poor story-telling. The author basically said the same thing over and over.
She was just okay. Sometimes I couldn't tell who was speaking. Her males voices were weak.
Quite a few. The author went on and on about how the hero was deceived. There was no tension in the story. Even the danger was boring and poorly developed.
I would say pass on this book. It's a total waste of time.
Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!
Fairly typical historical romance listen but the narration made up for it. If I figure out the ending by half way through the story that pretty much says it all.
A selfless virgin, a couple of villans, and a broken man who is handsome, rich, titled and in need of rescuing, gives this tale all the ingredients for a great book for romance junkies. Interestingly my grandfather lost two wives in childbirth before his third wife finally made him a father (lucky for me hey!!) so to the sceptics it did happen in the past ..... a lot!
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to more books by Laura.
Yes, however there were a few instances where the narrator erred with characters
Sounds like the plot in Devil's Bride
Strong and Weak
the Duke's emotion took some of the thrill away -- I would like to have seen a little more manly strength
None at this time
Love audio books. Hate bad narrators.
The story was very good. I liked the characters and the story line. However, the narrator was horrible. It took everything I had to continue to listen. The only reason I continued to listen was because I liked the story-line & characters. I can't understand why someone would invest so much into a book simply to ruin the entire thing by using a horrible narrator.
Horrid voice and the voice she used for the hero was unbelievably rediculous.
find another book but with a different narrator.
If you can stand the narrator, the book is definitely good. However the narrator takes so much of a good story and makes it almost bad.
Yes, it was enjoyable. I loved a strong herione who does what she needs to. It was lite on the sex scenes which was ok with me!
The fact that a lady -virgin- would pose as a prostitute is outrageous! ok so the fact that she even KNEW a whore ...
She did a fine job!
Half of the book is angst. I've heard it already, again, again, again. Seems like the author didn't have enough story & so repeated the insecurities over & over. I had to fast forward a lot . It does get better toward the end. The only reason I could listen to the whole thing is because I was doing a boring task at the same time.
Sarah Coomes is going on my awesome narrators list. Every character is distinct, both male and female characters. I'd definately listen to one of hers.
A duke with a broken heart who buried two wives, ends up with a "on the shelf" neglected daughter of an earl. Good conflict but nothing to over the top. And a good HEA.
Love to read!
I have no complaints about this book. The characters were likable and the story line had a good pace. The narration was good as well. It might have been a little predictable, but it didn't take away from my enjoyment.
