I enjoy this highland romance. The characters were strong and the story exciting. However, Sarah Coombs put too much stress on too much of the narration. While the accents were good, there was no time to relax because stress was put on most of the narration. It's still worth your credit, but the narration can be irritating. I kept having to take a deep breath to relax my muscles!
I enjoyed "Never Seduce a Scot" better than this story. It's similar in content which is another highland lass forced to marry a laird who plays hard to get at first and then learns to love him. The love scenes are sort of steamy but there are not much of them.
Yes for Tracy Brogan not Sarah Coomes
All of them were good
To me she ruined the book.
She read it as if every sentence was an orgasmic sensation. It is really funny to think about it. So as you listen to it, everyone is high strung drama queens and all the people are in constant arousal.
I had to listen to it in parts from the constant high strung vibe from the orator. It took a long time to finish. It was like my break in between books - like a few hours then I had to have a break and would listen to something else.
The story is very good if you can get past the constant tension of the orator.
I love the highland stories, i love the time period, the country and the way they lived. Will always enjoy these stories.
I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
I found this book to be a frustrating reading particularly because of how long it takes for the leading lady of the book, Fiona, to budge in her hatred of he husband, Myles. It isn't until more than halfway through the book that she even tries to meet Myles halfway in trying to at least make their marriage bearable.
Her initial blinding hatred of Myles, despite the fact that he was being extremely nice to her, bothered me so much. Because of that, the majority of the story, I wasn't even sure I liked Fiona and we're suppose to be rooting for these two to get together.
And in terms of Myles, who I did like quite a bit, it annoyed me that at the same time that Fiona is behaving horribly towards him that Myles is constantly being turned on by her because she's beautiful.
In the end, I enjoyed the ending and all the twists that were involved a lot, but for me they had come a bit to late. By then, all that I didn't like about this book outweighed what I did like.
I wasn't impressing and glad I got this book for free. Maybe it's me, but I don't like female leads that are not smart and make stupid decisions. The narration was good, I will look for more of her performances.
This is my first book by Tracy Brogan and I will definitely be reading or listening to more. The story was very real and captivating. And this audio version was wonderful. The Narration was great! Definitely recommended!
