Yes. Has everything a good historical romance should have.
Don't let the beginning fool you. I must admit I almost didn't get past chapter one but forced myself. I didn't like the character voices at all at the beginning. I thought the men (especially Lyon) sounded creepy, not sexy and Christina's voice was like a baby rather than a strong young woman. Before I knew it I realized I was actually thoroughly enjoying myself. The story drags you in and soon you are rooting for Chrsitina, proud that she may be tiny and delicate but like a true lioness underneath the surface. This book will make you laugh in all the right places. It has everything a good historical romance should have. I got past my issues with the narrator and soon relaized each voice was pretty perfect for each charator. Rosalyn Landor is still my all time favorite narrator but in the end this one was pretty darned perfect.
.....didn't explain how anyone reacted to Pippa and Cross at the end. No explanation of what happened to Cross' sister...disappointed with that.
I thought the narration was a little off on this one. The characters were flat and presented that way. The men's voices were distracting and Taylor's....ugh.
Almost not finish it
Great story but the narration was very distracting.
As much as I loved the story I have to say that the performance was irritating. When the narrator was using his "normal voice" it was great...but when he he was supposed to be talking as Dougless (or any female) it was the most irritating and whiney sound I have ever heard. It was terribly distracting and it took a lot away a lot of my enjoyment. I just wish the narrators could always use their normal voices.
