When I first began the book, I thought what am I reading. But it moved forward quickly. I loved this book, I am a big fan of Julie Garwood and I would say this is definitely one of my favorites
Christina, she new who she was and took London by storm
It took me a long time to get used to her, I have heard other that were much better.
The naming of her son moved me too tears. Her loyalty to her family.
If you choose this book, you will love this book.
I'm still listening to the story but I needed to write the review of narrator. She does not take away from the story but dragging out the last word of each sentence is nerve racking!!!
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.
This was such a fun book. The story was great, the sex scenes perfect, not over the top and the characters absolutely wonderful. If you want to listen to a fun, romantic novel, listen to this one. And of course I must say, I love Susan Duerden's narration. She is absolutely the best with characters. Julie Garwood's characters are always different and extremely interesting.
O Day of days when we can read! The reader and the book, either without the other is naught. Ralph Waldo Emerson. I Love to read, a great time for me is curling up with a great book!!!
I enjoyed the story. I only wish for a different narrator.
Every time SD whispered, I cringed and there was a lot of whispering in this book.
If you can ignore that, you will greatly enjoy the story.
I love Susan Duerden. She makes even the mundane book pop out into color! I also thoroughly enjoy Julie Garwood too. While she isn't my favorite regency romance author- she is definitely up there! I really did like Lion's Lady- and found myself laughing out loud at several times, especially with Christina's "adjusting" to English life. I recommend reading. Was it my favorite all time, no- not for a long shot. But is it credit worthy? I would say Yes.
