I had low expectations on this book. Sterling (Catherine's brother) was a jerk on the first book and continued to be a jerk at the beginning of this one. Frannie was very uptight. And although I absolutely believe in love/lust at first sight sometimes it is difficult to believe. But it totally worked on this book. As only Heath can master she developed another powerful love story. Her character development continues to amaze me as both Frannie and Sterling ended up being completely different from why I was expecting at the beginning.
I suggest that you follow this series in order as you will get updates of the other couples from previous books. The epilogue was So So Sooo good! It gives you the impression the author was going to end the series with that book. It was a complete conclusion. She even said what will happen to the inspector. She apparently changed her mind because there is a fourth book with the story of Jim. All in a this was another great romantic and passionate story with excellent character development that will keep you wanting more.
Narration: Susan Ericksen did a very good. Great accents, great emotions and intensity. Definitely worth your time and credit!
I loved this story. It's short and fast paced but it's written in a way that makes the romance belieaveble. I did an Internet search for books to read after Virgin River and this was a suggestion. And yes I see the similarities with the heroine being a nurse practitioner needing a break after a breakup/loss but this one is much more fun and less drama. The narration is very good too but I gave it 4 stars because the narrator made several awkward pauses that editing should have fixed. But it's no big deal.
This audiobook was well worth my time and money so yes I highly recommend it.
I finished this book because the narrator is very good. The story is lacking in so many ways. First, for me No means no. So our hero did not take that No kindly from the heroine and basically told her not to resist because it was gonna happen anyway. That for me is rape. I don't even understand how the heroine fell in love with the hero. He always treated her like a hostage and property. And him eyeing her when she was 10 years old? Nah.. After all that the hero put our Storm through there was not enough groveling to justify her forgiveness. So, with so many historical romance books out there I'd say skip this one.
I usually go for books that are about 10 hours long. So I considered whether it would be a good idea to try a 25, yes 25 hour long book by an author I've never read before. It was a gamble, a gamble I won. I LOVED this story. Even though the story is long many twists and unexpected turns made you want more. The love story between Nina and Max is very well developed, emotional and passionate. On top of that the ending is so amazing I felt like giving the author a standing ovation. Beautiful story and so worth a credit.
Narration: the narrator adds to the story. Her British accent is very good and she does excellent distinct male voices. I'd listen to more books narrated by Emma Taylor.
This story had all the elements of a fairytale: a princess, a plot to kill her, a knight that comes to her rescue and a Happily Ever After. Add lots of sexual innuendo and passionate lovemaking and you have a fairytale for adults. It was a really good book full of romance and adventure.
The narration was excellent as all works by Rosalyn Landor are. This is definitely worth a credit if you enjoy historical romances.
Lisa Kleypas is one of the best historical romance authors. A well written book with lots of intrigue and a well developed hate to love relationship. Most of the book I was wondering how it would end and I appreciated that it was actually not predictable at all. Add to that, the BEST historical romance narrator I've ever listened to Mrs. Rosalyn Landor, and you have hours of entertainment. Totally worth a credit.
I seem to be a minority here but I didn't like this book. The author wrote scene after scene of the most boring and bland sex scenes ever. Literally this couple spent a month trying to get pregnant and basically 28 of those days our heroine was looking at the ceiling and the hero gave her "his seed" in about thirty seconds. Those thirty seconds were followed by deep conversations about cows and country living...
The narration was very good and it's the only reason why I actually finished the book. The last hour or so of the story was very sweet and I liked the ending but I wish I could get those 12 hours of my life back...
Well it seems that my very favorite narrator is now using the pseudonym GC VanCloudts. I believe her original name is Therese Plummer and she can narrate a newspaper and make it sound like the most fascinating thing you've heard. Yes, she's that good.
The story was just ok for me. It was very hot and heavy but I felt like the story was mostly about sex. The paranormal world wasn't developed and I kept wondering what our main couple had in common besides strong libidos. That said the story did spark my curiosity and I will be listening to other books in this series as long as they are narrated by this same amazing narrator.
I got this book thinking it was a Highlander story but it is set in modern day Scotland. The things I learned by listening to this book are:
- Scottish men were amazing hundreds of years ago... and they still are!
- I absolutely love the Scottish accent
- Great narration makes the time go by quicker.
Yes I recommend this book! It's not only set in Scotland with that amazing accent and great narration but our hero is also a movie star... I'm in love!
This was one of those audiobooks that I couldn't stop listening to. I found it very entertaining and there were some plot twists that I wasn't expecting. It was actually funny how Jeremy was questioning his sexuality because he was attracted to Charlie and the things that happened because of that. There was a good build up to the romance and although there was only one love scene I did feel the romantic connection between Jeremy and Charlie. This is a fun story that I recommend. The narrator also did a fine job with the accents and adding intensity to the story as well.
This story has the qualities I like on a romance story: a sweet romance with hot scenes, a well developed, believable story with mystery and excitement. Unfortunately the narrator is so-so at best. She makes great voices for the females but doesn't even try to simulate male voices. All males sounded the same as females which is distracting and weird. Anyway the story is still so good that I recommend this book.
