    Gunslinger Caden Miller's compadres are becoming a bit too domesticated for his liking. So he's off to Kansas territory to carve out a living and a space of his own - alone, just the way he likes it. Maddie O'Hare has been drawn to Caden ever since she escaped to the Hell's Eight compound from the brothel where she was born and raised. And she's not ready to let him go so easily…until she's captured by his new neighbors.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator's attempts at male voices was hard to get past. The story needed more action as well.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Glimpses into prior characters ongoing lives was fascinating. The least was the narrators male voices sounded like hillbillies. Sarah's stories are usually so erotic and romantic but it is hard to feel that way when the voices turn you off.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The choice of a female narrator reading a male dominated story is truly unfortunate. Especially when most of the males sound the same and only slightly different from the females. They sounded like they were from hills of Tennessee not Texas.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    If it had been read by Jason Adams from Sam's Creed or Zoe Winslow from Caine's Reckoning. They brought the stories to life.

  • Captain Jack's Woman: The Bastion Club Novels

    Story
    (65)

    They meet in a clash of swords, drenched in the moonlight of Britain's rugged eastern coast: Captain Jack, his handsome features etched in silver and shadow, his powerful physique compelling "Kit" Cranmer to surrender. He is her dream lover come vividly alive, and his command of the smuggling gang is absolute. His all-knowing gaze penetrates her disguise as the male leader of a rival gang with frightening ease, and his "punishment" with kisses leaves her maidenly modesty in tatters.

    Would you try another book from Stephanie Laurens and/or McCallister Lee?

    I am a long time fan of Stephanie Laurens and would certainly purchase another book of hers. McCallister Lee on the other hand doesn't have the voice or timing necessary to be a good narrator.


    What was most disappointing about Stephanie Laurens’s story?

    I couldn't finish the story due to the very bad narration. I'm going to purchase the Kindle version to better appreciate Stephanie's writing.


    How could the performance have been better?

    McCallister's voice is not suited to the characters. Her attempts to voice the english accent and many different voices were horrible. Her timing is off. It was like trying to listen to a child read a story.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not the Audible version


    Any additional comments?

    I bought this thru my Kindle instead of the website. If I had it to do over I would have waited until I could connect to the website, read the other reviews and listened to the sample. I was so excited about buying a Stephanie Laurens book that I bought too soon

    Story

    They call him the Devil Earl - a scoundrel and accused murderer who grew up on the violent London streets. A proper young lady risks more than her reputation when consorting with the roguishly handsome Lucian Langdon, but Lady Catherine Mabry believes she has no choice. To protect those she loves, she would do anything-even strike a bargain with the devil himself. Lucian desires respectability and a wife above all else, but the woman of his choosing lacks the social graces to be accepted by the aristocracy.

    Would you try another book from Lorraine Heath and/or Susan Ericksen and Antony Ferguson ?

    Yes. I've read several of Lorraine Heath's books and enjoyed them. This one was the worst one yet.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Anything by Suzanne Elizabeth Phillips which are more consistent.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Susan Erickson was ok but the material she had to work with was really bad.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment and disgust that I wasted the credit.

    Story

    Her parents' death has left Kelsey Langton penniless - and responsible for the well-being of her younger sister, Jean. Kelsey knows that the only way to avert their doom is to allow herself to be sold at auction. Resigned to becoming the plaything of a well-heeled gentleman, she gets more than she bargained for.

    XYZPDQ says: "Something Different"
    "Good story - Inappropriate narrator"
    Overall

    Michael Page is a good narrator just not the appropriate narrator for this story. The other reviews are correct. All the male characters sound like a bad British comedy. Overly exaggerated snooty tones and none of them sound age appropriate.

    However, the story itself is good if somewhat formulaic. .
