I always hope for a range of hope and disappointment in my characters experiences, and found this last book was more filled with death, destruction and disappointment than I would have liked, although narration was excellent and the story telling and characterisation very well done.
Maybe, but they'd have to be very specifically fantasy, and DARK fantasy at that.
A great narration and clear delineation between characters
Never ever, no, never.
Broadened her vocabulary. Stopped using the one or two words or phrases that said 'medieval' to her, and got some more. And then didn't include them with contemporary jargon and attitudes. And then wrote more story and less endless erotic scenes.
The pauses and the wrong pronunciation of a number of words.
The main protagonist.
Sorry, but if I hear the word mayhap one more time, mayhap I will be sick. It is mayhap the most overworked word, mayhap, in this whole story.
YES! Nicholas Boulton has nailed it, and brings the wonderful characters to life.
The odd issues and problems that her main protagonists have to deal with, which makes them so very human. I love the story line, and that despite the odds, they find redemption.
The scene where she is thinking she is safely tucked away in her attic and shuts the window. Gets undressed and brushes her hair, and sees him in the ceiling struts above her in the mirror in her hand.
I just got more and more hooked.
PLEASE write more books, Laura. And please put them on audio with Nicholas Bolton reading.
My absolute favorite story I've heard in months. Loved it so much I just relistened to it with a friend over a weekend. What a great range of believable characters, and a story that keeps you on the edge. Nicholas Boulton perfectly captures the voices and intonations and is so easy to listen to. We had tissues nearby and used them.
I enjoyed The Prince of Midnight as well, but not as much as this one.
The scene where the Duke comes in to the Quaker meeting and struggles through his speech.
The Madness of Chevaux
I wish there were twenty books like this one.
I was totally gripped at the first few lines and have run a ragged roller coaster listening ever since. Torn between trying to leave it so that I can properly concentrate and savour it. And not wanting it to finish.
A perfect blend of depth of characters, redemption, adventure, and heart.
S. T. the highwayman was delicious.
The scene where she joins him late at night after he has returned from the village as a highwayman. She thinks she hates him, but she can't stay away.
BOTH. Loved it immensely. Want it on my book shelf to read again and again.
I read A LOT of books, from romances to Sci Fi to fantasy, or thriller. This book is not just a romance, it is so much more.
Sorry, I thought this would be a more down to earth novel, and realised after purchasing that it was another religious romance. Disappointed.
