The narrator's attempts at male voices was hard to get past. The story needed more action as well.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Not the Audible version
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
Yes. I've read several of Lorraine Heath's books and enjoyed them. This one was the worst one yet.
Anything by Suzanne Elizabeth Phillips which are more consistent.
Susan Erickson was ok but the material she had to work with was really bad.
Disappointment and disgust that I wasted the credit.
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. .
