I am happy to see Julie Garwood's older books being released in audio form. I have been disappointed in the narrator that has been chosen but she seems to be improving. I hated this narrator in The Secret and still want a do over on that book but she was okay in this book. At least she is not Whispering but it still seems like she is telling it like a bed time story. I see that she is doing the other JG books and I just hope she get better. These Books are cute and funny that I recommend to anyone.
Audible addicted love mystery,lately stuck on love story. Mother of 1 Labrador and 1 perfect man. Work way too hard, and so ready to be retired
Perfect made me laugh cry and swoon lol. Susan did a awesome job as usual. And 2 thumps up to Julie great story started slow until I understood where she was going "I LOVED IT !!!!!! will read again and will look for story with Susan as narrator. Worth any cost or credit a must listen if you need a few laughs and nice sexy love.
I have liked Susan Duerden in some other books but it isn't working for this one. There story just can't keep my attention either. I still want to know what happens but after I listen for a while, I keep shutting it off. I only have 3 hours left!
I don't know. It might just be me. There are so many good reviews on this book but I just don't think it's that great. I like it for a minute then it kind of drags........
It just isn't a good match. I have heard much worse narrators though!
Probably none. They are all needed.
Sorry, this book just wasn't for me!
Another of Garwood's best, this is the first of a great series. Lyon is a stirring and seductive hero and his unique princess wife is a very unusual and endearing heroine. She has an different background which makes for some very amusing interactions between the two. While Lyon remains the tall, dark and mysterious handsome hunk throughout, he is constantly thrown off guard by the princess's charm and unique perspective on life. And she remains an influence in book 2 as well, which is part of why the whole series is great reading. I flew through all 4 books.
This is my favorite book. I love the way it goes from the Dakota's in the Americas to England. this book is well written, exciting, funny and leaves you wanting more. the heroin can certainly take care of herself and is very clever. The love scenes are tastefully done and the narration is great. Don't skip this series. I don't know why her books are so affordable but from me to Julie Garwood, Thank You
Audio Book Gal
I loved the experience of reading this book! I thought I had it all figured out in the first chapter but Boy! was I Wrong! Thank You Julie Garwood for a wonderful story full of intrigue, romance, and historical background threaded throughout till the very end. I can't wait for the rest of the series.
It is one of my favorite audio books. I can listen to this story more than once, which I have.
This book has so many good qualities, the story line, the characters, and the performance by Susan Duerden.It is a fun book to listen to. It a can make you laugh and if you have a gentle heart you may cry over the mother that who cared about making her young daughter strong so that she would be able to make it back to England to face her blood family. A very good beginning of a series.
Oh yes! I love Julie Garwood's books and my previous favorites were The Bride, Prince Charming, and Saving Grace. Somehow this book surpassed all my previous favorites by far. If I could give this 6 stars I would.
When Lyon comes home to find his shoes on the porch. I laughed so hard during this and the following scenes! And the puppy scenes! LOL
Lyon and Christina's interaction, so funny!
I listen to every book I can find that Susan Duerden is the Narrator.
Laugh out loud!!
I did hesitate to buy this book. It was in my wish list forever. I am so glad I finally did make the purchase..
Yes. Has everything a good historical romance should have.
Don't let the beginning fool you. I must admit I almost didn't get past chapter one but forced myself. I didn't like the character voices at all at the beginning. I thought the men (especially Lyon) sounded creepy, not sexy and Christina's voice was like a baby rather than a strong young woman. Before I knew it I realized I was actually thoroughly enjoying myself. The story drags you in and soon you are rooting for Chrsitina, proud that she may be tiny and delicate but like a true lioness underneath the surface. This book will make you laugh in all the right places. It has everything a good historical romance should have. I got past my issues with the narrator and soon relaized each voice was pretty perfect for each charator. Rosalyn Landor is still my all time favorite narrator but in the end this one was pretty darned perfect.
