Probably not. The frustration I felt with the narrator pretty much ruined it.
At first I thought she might be OK...... However as the book went on, she got more and more monotone and by the last half of the book she sounded totally bored.
There are so many audiobooks I would like to get, but find myself very hesitant if I don't know the narrator already. This one has some Amazon reviews but that does not help determine if the narrator is any good. The narrator can make or break the whole story.
The heroine was very intelligent yet so immature, arrogant and childish that it ruin the story. She actually came off as mean and selfish a great deal of the time. Also, the author seem to put more effort into displaying her knowledge of the time and geography that the romance was secondary at best. I loved the hero but wished he had more backbone.
The selfish heroine
I worked hard at finishing the story because the narrator was excellent. My impatience with the heroine reached its limit though.
The duke more than anything. I loved his strong character and protectiveness.
I really cannot think of one off hand.
No - the book Darling Beast which is the next in the series will take care of that.
I love, love, love the Maiden Lane series. Unfortunately the last couple have had very poor narrators and I don't think I can go through that anymore. I do hope Darling Beast comes out with a good narrator - I just can't make myself listen to another great story butchered by a poor narrator - so sad. I wish the powers that be would respect the impact narrators make on a book - they can make it or break it!
I don't really know. Maybe someone with lots of patience. The concept of the story was very good, however it was so wordy that it became so frustrating that I had to stop about half way through. I kept falling asleep and when I woke up, I hadn't really missed anything.
Less description of what is going on inside the main characters mind. It was the same thing only worded a little differently and done over and over and over again.
She is very, very good. She is the main reason I purchased the book.
Very, very good
Maybe the historical romances by Eloisa James or Julie Garwood - steamy romance, humor and intrigue
Intrigue, humor, and romance!
Well worth the time, money, and credit!
I did not read the printed version but the audio version is wonderful. Enough humor and intrigue to keep me hooked even though I should have been do something other than listening to a book. I just couldn't stop listening to it. I can't wait for the next one to come out.
Maybe the historical romances by Eloisa James or Julie Garwood because it has steamy romance, humor, and intrigue.
She was perfect - all of the different voices and emotions were obvious and it was easy to really "feel" the different characters.
It was so nice to read a romance where the heroine isn't too stubborn and with a "prim and way too proper" attitude. Well worth the money and credit - I want to listen to it all over again!
Something that isn't Jilliam Hunter
It was ok - but not great
all of it
First 10 chapters devoted to one evening. Really? I couldn't finish the book after that. Waste of money.
Hunter - he was great and the only one in the whole story with any common sense.
Yes - because I have read some of her other books and liked them.
Yes - anger and disgust. The heroine was so extremely self righteous and stupid
Wish I hadn't gotten this one
