Lorraine Heath is like that little girl in the rhyme: when she is good she is very, very good but when she is bad, she is awful. Unfortunately, this book is of the second type! After about 2 hours I kept looking to see if it was over yet! It features a "heroine" with a weak back bone and a brain the size of a walnut. But just when you think it can't get any worse, along comes her pea-brained sister! She sounds like an opera singer warming up: me me me me me!! Unfortunately, the hero doesn't offer much more either. Forcing myself to get to the end of this recording was torture. Anne Flosnick does a good job with the reading as she usually does, but she sure doesn't have much to work with here. I definitely recommend that you not waste your money on this one.
I agree with the reviewer who wonders if this could have been written by Mary Balogh. Some of her books are so delicious but this one was so painful to listen to that I couldn't get past the first half. The "Heroine" is SOOOO annoying and the story line is so predictable that I kept wishing they would just get on with it and finish so I could move on to another story. This whole soldier series has been so lacking in the magic of Mary Balogh's other books but this one is definitely the worst. Makes me sad since I have loved many of her other books. If you like strong, compassionate heroines who work hard to overcome difficulties, this book is not for you. If you like a whiny, selfish, self-centered heroine who torments the hero for 14 hours of listening, then jump right in!
Couldn't really get into it. The characters are just SOooooo annoying. Wouldn't recommend it. I read the print book of this several years ago and after 30 minutes listening, remember why I never bought the audio book before this. Save your credits!
This was a pretty silly story. The narration was OK but the story was not engrossing in any way. Definitely not her best book.
I usually love Lisa Kleypas' books but this one was really disappointing. It's one of those books where you look at the time remaining, see 2 hours and groan "Oh NO. I have to listen to two more hours of this!!! Ugh" The "heroine" was SO annoying. Weak and whinny. It was painful to listen to. I would definitely recommend that you save your credit on this one. Rosalyn Landor does her usual wonderful job but even she can't save this one.
I can't believe some of these other reviewers listened to the same story I did. This story was so slow and boring that I kept looking hopefully to see if it was almost over and actually skipped ahead a few times. None of the characters were particularly appealing, in fact the hero and heroine were both really annoying! The story line was dull. Part of it sounded like it had been written by a college freshman who just finished taking Psychology 101! I guess some of you might like that sort of thing, in which case, go for it. But I definitely feel like I wasted my time!
I love this book. The characters are strong and wonderful. The situation in interesting and different. The narrator is really good. Definitely give this one a listen.
I remembered liking this book when I read it years ago but unfortunately, the audio book just wasn't very captivating. The narrator was kind of annoying as was the heroine of the story. The premise of the story was interesting but it couldn't overcome the other difficulties that hold this one back. Not horrible but not great either.
Another lovely story from Lorraine Heath but the reader is disappointing, especially after we heard the other stories in this series wonderfully read by Susan Ericksen! All the characters sound the same! Where is Susan when we need her?!
Suzanne Enoch's books are usually really enjoyable: good characters, interesting plot and enough fun and sex to spice things up. This one was just plain boring. The plot was kind of silly, the characters rather dull. As one other reviewer said, other than physical attraction for each other there was little else there. Their own angst was pretty much only skin deep. She was just shallow and that he would give up his convictions so easily just because he has the hots for a Sasannach wench. Pretty Ho Hum over all.
Loved this book! An engrossing story and a very interesting hero and heroine. I have listened to it twice and enjoyed it both times. I would definitely recommend it.
