I love to read or listen to Paranormal Romance, Historical Romance and IR books! I also like the Self Development books too!
Julie Garwood is a very entertaining writer. I loved this book and the characters. I've listened to it 2x and still laughed and was kept interested all the way through.
One of my favorite audio books so far, and I have too many to mention! Something about this couple was so heartwarming, the way they brought out the best in each other. Some scenes had me laughing out loud. Some events I'm sure weren't nearly as bad in the book as they were in reality during that time period. Always enjoy strong women in these Highland tales. Hopefully there really were some like that back then. As usual, Rosalyn Landor does an excellent job. This book is definitely worth a credit, hated to see it end!
The story was average; however the narration saved it. It was sometimes repetitious to the point of almost becoming annoying. I did like the transformation of the main character by the end of the book.
...Well, Never read the print version, but I always believe the audio versions of books work as a "theatre of the mind" type of realm.
hmmm....."By right of Arms".......
Yes. She is so good. She has mastered the art of voice changes impeccably well.
I made me do both. So darn good .
I love this book regarding JoHanna and Gabriel.. I highly recommend it!
I enjoyed this book very much. I'm very weary in reading romances about Scotsmen because of my love for Gabaldon's books, but this was quite good and different.
I love men that are intelligent, gruff, manly, demanding, yet so gentle loving. Gabriel, the heroine's love interest was all those things and more.
The book started out a little slow and sad but once Johanna got to the Highlands, her demeanor and adventures changed. Things became more exciting. However, I found a lot of the story line predictable and dragging, I did enjoy it very much. I loved watching Johanna grow some gumption and find her place. I love how she brought people together and became a part of the clan. The camaraderie was touching. The love story itself was nice and slow and quite realistic.
Alex, Gabriel's illegitimate son, was adorable and how I enjoyed reading about him and his adventures. Cute kids in books are always fun to me, it's the bratty ones I can't stand. :)
All in all, this was a great romance story and I'd recommend it to anyone who loves a handsome Highlander.
I love the way Garwood tells a story it flows beautifully and keeps your attention from the first and then you never want it to end. Rosalyn Landor is one of the best narrators for stories about Scotland & England she narrates both accents very well. The two women are a great combination. I have listened to several of Garwood's stories and I am looking for more!
The story is great. I love the early Garwood book. I have been disappointed with some of her recent books but this one is a fun listen. The male and female roles are believable with great interaction. Better than your average romance
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
One of my favorite stories by Julie Garwood. So glad that Audible recorded it. A light hearted, but moving story. Love the characters and their quirkiness. I had a silly grin on my face with some of the antics Johanna gets herself into. I love how Gabriel acknowledges his feelings even though it isn't cool for a warrior to have those. Narrator was okay, although not my favorite she seems slightly old for the character and her male voices are not great.
Better Diaglogue. The dialogue was quite boring and juvenile at times.
Anything by Laura Kinsale (unfortunately I've listened to all the ones that are out), or Laurie McBain.
It's hard to characterize exactly what was lacking here, but when you're used to such consummate narrators as Nicholas Bouton, Grover Gardner, and Davina Porter, it can be hard to listed to anyone else. I didn't think there was much emotion or passion in the voices of the characters.
I don't know that I would cut any of the characters, but the whole story needs a lot more suspense. It was hard to become emotionally invested in the story.
I think this could be a good story with better dialogue, more sexual tension, and a bit more mystery.
The narration of this book is terrible. I restarted it four times, listening a couple hours each time, and tried desperately to get into this book. The narration is terrible, the "voices" are all the same. Boring and difficult to follow.
No. She is horrible.
The story seems like it might be decent but the narration made it unlistenable.
