    Story

    I came to realise by the end of the third book, that this trilogy is all about the love story. The kinky sex is interesting but in the end its all about a desperate, all consuming love that many many people never experience. The kind of love where despite the hardships, a couple really do adore each other and ..........yes....... it does happen. Its also about the female need to save a handsome and esentially good but very damaged man from himself, and see that love does win over in the end. Yes the books are repetivive but to be honest who cares. It was all about heart and I loved them:) Becca Battoe has done a nice job of the reading.

    This is half of a great book. The characters are wonderful, and the storyline is so interesting but the ending ....or lack of it, is so annoying.
    I am very much into books that have many in the series, but to end on such a cliffhanger makes me think this is not a whole book but just half a book. Still I am sucked in and enjoying the story so much I am downloading number two as I am typing.
    I am sure I will be annoyed again at the end of the next one and waiting for number three to be made. Oh well.

    The worldwide phenomenon continues as Eva and Gideon face the demons of their pasts and accept the consequences of their obsessive desires.... From the moment I first met Gideon Cross, I recognized something in him that I needed. Something I couldn’t resist. I also saw the dangerous and damaged soul inside - so much like my own. I was drawn to it. I needed him as surely as I needed my heart to beat. No one knows how much he risked for me. How much I’d been threatened, or just how dark and desperate the shadow of our pasts would become.

    I love Sylvia Days writing and I am so pleased the story continues. I am a lover of long sagas and I love a story that continues for years!! I have been reading the Outlander Series for 20 years - and book 8 coming out next year!!

    But back to this book I really enjoyed the subplot characters and I really look forward to hearing more from them in the next books. The story had it all for me and I lost a whole nights sleep as I couldnt stop listening.

    Thanks to the incredible narration of Jill Redfield. You are a wonderful talent.

    Story

    During the first half of this audio I almost gave up on it. The situation between the two main characters becomes very repetitive. However I am pleased I stayed with it as the second half was very good. I have never listened to or read a supernatural type book before so I am now interested but not sold. Mr Petkoff has the most amazing voice. Incredibly good interpretation of a sexy Scottish brogue, but I am afraid Emma did sound mostly like a man trying to be a woman (Mrs Doubtfire the movie kept coming to mind) but other than that I so enjoyed listening to Robert and would listen to him anytime....particularly if playing a Scotsman!!

    The unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Sylvia Day’s Pride and Pleasure, a tale of ambition, love and lust. Read by the actress Imogen Church. Pursued by fortune hunters, heiress Eliza Martin is the victim of diabolical scheming to get her to the altar. She won’t be bullied, however, and she will get to the bottom of this plot. She needs a man to infiltrate her suitors and find the villain.

    Another great book by Sylvia Day. Her stories tranport me completely to that time and place. A wonderful tale (it must have been so hard to be an intelligent, indepedant woman during that time). Rich characters, interesting story, and sizzling romance and lust combined with the most wonderful narrator...Imogen Church is so so clever.

    A selfless virgin, a couple of villans, and a broken man who is handsome, rich, titled and in need of rescuing, gives this tale all the ingredients for a great book for romance junkies. Interestingly my grandfather lost two wives in childbirth before his third wife finally made him a father (lucky for me hey!!) so to the sceptics it did happen in the past ..... a lot!
    I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to more books by Laura.

    I was glued to this book from the word go and eventually I could not stop listening until the end. A wonderful tale of intrigue, love, lust, and the darker side. Moira Quirk is one of my all time favourite narrators who was at her usual best. The anticpation of these two getting together was excruciating and a long time coming but wonderful when they finally did. Definitely worth a credit if you are a romance junkie like me.

Years later, Gavin works up the courage to give Kenna a thistle, and with one innocent gesture, steals her heart. And then, in the blink of an eye, Gavin is gone, swept away with the rest of the Highlanders to fight in Bonnie Prince Charlie's war, from which he never returns.

    Story

    I have deleted this audio book after five minutes. This narrator should NEVER EVER again try to do accents that are not her own. There are no words to describe how dreadful this is. While trying to perform Scottish accents she sounds like someone in pain with a serious speech defect while lapsing back into her American twang a lot of the time. Actually there are no words to describe this desecration enough. What an insult to all Scotts. It is seriously painful. Unfortunately before buying this audio book I had mistakenly read the amazon reviews for the print or e-read version (which were the only reveiws that came up).
    I am so disappointed.
    I have wasted a credit and I am truely not happy.

    Another great story from Elizabeth Hoyt. The narrator was not great...in fact she was pretty awful. I prefer Moira Quirk who narrated the other audio books from this author. Highly recommended if you like Elizabeth Hoyt stories (I am a big fan) but only if you can put up with the narrator.
    I sincerely hope that Audible will be adding more of Elizabeth Hoyts books to the audible collection as unfortunately I have now listened to them all.
