Christina keeps secrets and lies to Lyon a lot. He knows she is lying - so that’s ok with me. Other authors annoy me when lies do not fit motivations. That does not happen here. Christina wants a temporary marriage and plans to divorce him soon after. He gets bent out of shape over that.
One reviewer complained it was not historically accurate about Indians in America. If that’s true, I don’t care. I enjoyed it for what it was – light, fun, escape, and romance.
Susan Duerden is fabulous. She’s a chameleon with her voices. I felt like different people were talking. She does men really well - and sexy. She has an excellent narration style. I’ll listen to her anytime.
Genre: historical romance
This is a great story, well developed with strong believable characters. From the first, the background story drew me in and held my interest all the way to the end. I especially liked Lyon and how he stayed so confused by his delightful lioness that you couldn't help being on his side.
Definitely worth the credit. As usual July Garwood has produced an entertaining novel. Susan Duerden did a very good job of narrating.
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.
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
This book is full of GREATS - the narration, the author, the storyline, the dialogue, the characters, their chemistry and, of course, the romance.
It's all been said before by my fellow reviewers so all that I can add is that it was a joy to listen to this different, action packed tender, sweet, sad, funny, emotional story that stands out from the crowded bookshelves because it did such a good job of mentally time travelling you to a bygone era and feeding you a romance that nourishes your mind as well as your heart.
Worth a credit? Absolutely YES.
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 had forgotten how much I loved this book. this being a romance with a very intriguing mystery is the 1st of a series I have loved for years. Being mostly a mystery buff I have found that all of Julie Garwood's books even the ones that are just romance are very good books and well worth the price. This series will entertain you, make you laugh, so small amount of tears in some places (if you are tended toward that emotion ) & keep you guessing where she is going. I highly recommend this series.
Say something about yourself!
Any other Regency Romance that was written by Julie Garwood or Johanna Lindsay
Her voice seems to read as though 95% of the sentences are either secret and mysterious or may be leading to a question about to be asked. I think she may have read with her eyebrows raised high as her voice was elevated and her imitations of female and male voices are painful and detract from the real story.
None. This is one of my favorite Jule Garwood stories.
The narrator made the heroine sound like she was a little girl, not a strong, young women raised by Natives. However, she did get the annoying, sneering voice of the aunt down to perfection.
I am intrigued by the story, wanting to know what will happen, but I can't bear the narration, and will have to find a written version to find out what happens. I am amazed to read so many reviews from people who loved the narration. My dislike is not of the narrators acting skill, but of the intonation and quality of her voice, which I find very peculiar, grating, and distracting.
I have listened to other Julie Garwood books narrated by Susan Duerden, and in the past I was able to get absorbed enough in the stories to forget my dislike of the narration. But in this book, there is so much of the harsh, angry male voices that I feel so irritated by, that I just cannot continue listening, and will be returning the book. Even Christina's voice is unpleasant to me.
I didn't want to rate the story, since I haven't given it a chance, but I could not proceed with the review until I did, so I gave it three stars.
