I have downloaded almost 900 titles since I joined Audible and this was the worst book I have listened to in my tenure as a "reader". The heroine was just plain stupid. I lieu of a plot, there was sex instead, which was repetitive. Our author needs a thesauras for the word "passion". I cringed more than once while listening to this book, and had to laugh out loud in places I am sure the author never intended. The writing was just ghastly.
Used it for recycling.
No, she seemed to think that rolling an R equaled a Scottish Burr.
All of them
This is a good one. If you love these Scottish romances, this one can be added to your list of good books to read.
I am in love with James Alexander Malcom Mackenze Frazer.
each book in the series can stand alone without a lot of back story. The story is told in the point of view of the two main characters which I found refreshing
I believe in true love, happily ever after, magic, and laughter. But mostly I believe in coffee.
I enjoyed this story. I thought the narrator brought the story to life. I enjoyed that though they both kept their secrets they didn't let them get in the way of how they truly felt for each other.
I love romantic historical novels.
I love reading books, but sometimes it's also just great to be able to close your eyes and listen. And this is one of them.
I love Arbella, because she is just so naiv, but she can still fight.
She can give the book more life.
Yes, and i did that.
Magnus and Arbella is the true highlander story. The Highlander safe en young englich girl.
He is bewitched by her beauty and decides to keep her. And of course there are some obstacles they have to go through.
I didn't care for this one....the story was so-so at best, and littered with so many modern day phrases that it took away from the reason I read romances in the first place - escapism.
He was "fired up", or he "gave it a shot", or "she messed him up"....there were plenty more phrases like this, and they just weren't in keeping with the dialog of a 13th century person. I found it both distracting and irritating.
The characters were superficial, and had little, if any, depth. The main female character was very wishy-washy....I didn't like her at all. The overall impression I got was that this book was written hurriedly, as if to meet a deadline, by a rather young author...one without access to a thesaurus. Disappointing listen.
I thought the narrator was pretty good though, given what she had to work with....
But I will not download any more books by this author.
the narrator was horrible her scottish accent was terrible really boring the story might have been good if not ruined by narrator
Like the romance, but love the action involved to get there!
So excited to read a highlander book and then I got this amateurish attempt, highly disappointing. The narrator sounded like a screatching English woman and all female characters sounded over the top, and the male characters weren't much better! Then the drama felt totally forced and the characters didn't stay in character, totally weird. One minute we have a simpering noble woman who is terrified to be in Scotland and is beyond jittery at the sound of battle....the next instant she is pulling axes and brandishing a sword, only to go back to simpering, and then back to Xena warrior princess.....WHAT?!?!?!
In short, I liked the basis of the story, but the delivery was not executed well at all. Take a pass on this book.
Parts of "The Highlander's Reward" were so unbelievable it was humorous. Many times I found myself shaking my head and smiling. It wasn't a bad book--it all depends on what you are looking for. I don't mind a little fantasy...humor is a good thing, even if it was not written to be humorous, in my opinion.
Eliza Knight is a talented author with the ability to create mental pictures without the use of boring 'filler words', and Corrie James' performed well.
Although the sexual content was explicit the scenes did not dominate the story, as in some Highland stories.
