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.
Set in 1814 London, this romantic suspense is an old favorite, but I couldn't tolerate Duerdan's unpleasant portrayal of Aunt Patricia and a few others, including Christina's old butler and Lyon's best friend (to some extent). I cringed nearly every time they spoke. They frequently sound enraged, almost spitting with it -- especially the aunt. When Duerdan sounds gratingly hateful, she makes the listening experience nearly intolerable. On the up side, her portrayal of Christina and Lyon is excellent. She seems to utilize her natural voice for them. It's very pleasant, flowing, easy on the ears. I liked her non-dialogue narrator voice, too.
I gave one star overall, but really the one star goes to the narrator. Breathy, whiny and not at all pleasant to listen to. Put me on edge and distracted from story. I listened to about 30 minutes and couldn't take anymore.
Julie has really done it again! A great heroin, with a new story line. No clammy, boring English fellows here - this Lord is just the right one to match wits with Christina. Excellent, highly recommend, enjoyed every minute! The narrarator switched from a young girl, a man, another man to a nasty old countess within seconds and you don't even notice.
Garwood infuses humor, endearing characters, intrigue and steaminess for a good read. I enjoyed this book and I am looking forward to reading more of the series.
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!
I have a PhD in American Literature but my love affair with romance novels on audible is going strong.
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
I enjoyed this book enormously. Julie’s books have a great storyline and she manages to mix that with sex that stems from passion. I enjoy passion in books and she certainly delivers it here. The female characters in her books are usually hesitant about getting involved emotionally and it is nice to read books where women are not always desperate (as I see played in real life).
This storyline is unique in that JG mixes the American Indian lifestyle and upbringing with the old British stuffiness. I like how she shows a strong Indian leader bending to his wife’s will to raise a child not his own during those times where white people were disliked so extensively by them. And then the strength in male character continues to show through in Lion as well. I just love the characters in this book. A nice mixture of good vs. evil.

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.
