the narrrator did a very good job. Her mother's death was talked about and regurgeted over and over and over again-serval time every chapter. It seemed liked the story was ALL about the story of her mother. UUUUGGG.
Ya, i think sooo
any scene that wasnt about her mothers death as a good one
I just enjoy books!
This was great read, the narrator did an outstanding job and she delivered the Scottish accent to the (T). The billed up to the romance parts was awesome and steamy. I would suggest this book for people who love a Cinderella type novel. Wroth the money and I would order another book from his author!
This is my first story by Tracy Brogan and I was enthralled. She is a wonderful writer - choices of phrases and words are so colorful and descriptive. She really makes the story come alive. This has everything you could ask for: feisty women, handsome and rugged warriors, kings and castles. Add in intrigues from court life, luxurious gowns, and splendid sex - what more could you want!
Sarah Coomes is now one of my new favorite narrators. Every character had a distinct and believable voice. I couldn't imagine anyone doing it better.
Definitely worth the credit....wish Tracy would do a sequel.
good, good, good
This is a really good book with a good story line. The only thing that could have been better is the narrator, she was good but I found that in parts of the book she would sound like she was reading a list...but overall a great book1
This audiobook is an easy listen and well done. The narrator gives each character a distinct personality. It is a good love story that keeps you guessing until the end.
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
Enjoyable Addicting Fun
The narrator was good everywhere except the male voices. I got used to it, but early on I was really disappointed with the portrayal of the males. It seemed like she struggled with them...like it HURT to do the voices. BUT she did all the other voices well so I was able to get used to her.
If I didn't have to work... I probably would have never stopped listening!
I have a busy career, travel a lot and don't have much time to read, so I listen to Audio books. I love reading!
I enjoyed this book, but I must say that I have been thoroughly spoilt by the Outlander series. So this is sepia water cloured version of the full blown colourful Outlander series. Nothing compares to that series and any book is a hard act to follow.
But overall, a nice romantic novel, authentic, with one or two historical mistakes, but not a bad read.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a historical romance. The characters are interesting and not over done. The story stole my attentions continually.
Vivian - what a michevious person! Her humor and methods made me laugh several times.
The best scene was when Vivian and Fiona were sneaking into the scacrilege. There were many to chose from
I came close to crying once. Laughter and mild suspense mostly.
Historical Romances are new to me, I've enjoyed this book more than most in my favorites list. Cannot wait to listen again!
I listen to audio books and knit. Usually at the same time.
Fiona's talk with the king in the garden.
The "I love you" scene was very sweet. It developed so naturally and was just such a lovely statement of fact. No angst. No drama. So simple. So sweet.
The sexual relationship between Fiona and Myles developed in a respectful, realistic way. She wasn't forced amidst a (ridiculous-for-the-character) BDSM subtext. Don't get me wrong. Power exchange fantasies can be fun! But it has to be right for the character, or I just can't buy it. Also, he wasn't the most perfect lover giving her the most perfect sex on their very first most perfect night together. If you have read enough historical romance -- chock full of virgin brides and their reformed rakes -- you know exactly what I mean. Tracy Brogan found a middle ground that maintained the sexual tension, but also allowed for the characters to very naturally fall in lust and love. I could relate to that relationship, and that was very refreshing.
The book, Highland Surrender, is set back in the 1500's in the Scottish Highlands. Normally I'm not that crazy about books from this period in time (maybe because I'm not really good with European history before Jane Austen), but this book grabbed me and really made for a captivating getaway from the 21st century. I have to give the narrator credit for much of my enjoyment - her Scottish and French accents were dead on and I found myself mimicking that lovely Scottish lilt. I don't know if this book is part of a series, but I will definitely look for more books by this author and this narrator.
