Loved the story...read it once already and fell in love with Ms Hoyt's writing style. So for me audio book was the next step. Moira Quirk does not disappoint, but I was looking for better voice distinction. There are scenes where I found the supporting characters interpretation by the narrator a little over the top :-/ other than that its a hard to put down/pause read<3
Do you know when you hit a streak of great audio books and then nothing? I was desperate to find something light but good. I was flipping between Goodreads and Audible to find a gem like this one. Right now I have Dune by Frank Herbert and The Fellowship of the Ring on my mobile. But, I have to have a blend of audio lite and audio dense. I look forward to spending another credit on this author.
Truly enjoyed this book more than any romance in a long time. Nice escape ... loved both main characters and appreciated the anticipation and imagination built into the story. So glad it wasn't filled with constant angst like so many. Will be looking for more books narrated by Ms. Quirk. Her narration was absolutely perfect.... wonderful emotion, did male and female characters equally well.
I would have this looped for continuous play
combining Jane Eyre and wonderful love scenes
Wow! she uses her voice to create an entire cast of characters
a "how to" have great sex
one of the best books I have read that combines what I love in classic novels with realistic sensuality
I have listened to the book several times. Narrated as perfect as one can get making for easy listening.
no but I shall
yes . That is yet to happen
This is certainly a different kind of story line and not a bad one however I felt as if some parts of the story could have been developed a bit more and perhaps it would have drawn me in more. By all means, if you're an Elizabeth Hoyt fan, do take a listen. It's worth a credit. I just personally found the heroine and her mother-in-law a tad too unbelievable. (I'm probably just being cynical.) I was also a little bothered by the short story of The Raven Prince -- it's basically the Greek Myth of Eros & Psyche (great story by the way!) Maybe I missed her crediting that story as the basis of her Raven Prince but if she didn't than it's kind of lame to use it and not credit it.
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
This book is in my top 5 romance novels.
He didn't have a huge part, but I loved Jock the dog. :-) but really I like Anna. She was such a well constructed character.
The scene when Anna meets the Earl's London butler from under the bed covers was so well written and narration was fabulous.
Yes yes yes....almost did
This was a super sexy book with a twist on the typical romance story. A widow and a not so perfect man...but let's face it I could never picture him as anything but gorgeous!
