    The New York Times best-selling author of Ransom weaves the delightful, sensual story of two lovers destined for high adventure and blissful rapture! A child bride, Sara Winchester had grown into a winsome beauty, joyfully anticipating the day when her husband Nathan, Marquess of St. James, would return to claim her heart at last. Nathan had never bared his soul to any woman, but he was soon utterly beguiled and exasperated by Sara’s sweet, defiant ways. With their future at stake, they would discover the true destiny of their passion... for all time!

    If you could sum up The Gift in three words, what would they be?

    Well told story.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Julie Garwood? Why or why not?

    Yes I have read many of her books, incluing The Bride, Prince Charming, The Secret,just to name a few. I will of course continue to be a fan, but many of Garwoods Heros, and Heroines are very simylor. I have a hard time remembering what charators went with what book.


    What does Susan Duerden bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love Susan Duerden especially for this author. Susan does man voices very well,and is perfect for an angry hero :)


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Beware the insane girl.... she may look normal.


    Any additional comments?

    Yes the heroine,........can anyone really be that dumb, and be alive? Come on Miss Garland, I think we need to do better research into survival of the fitest. Other then that it was a very enjoyable book.

    In this second installment of her breathtaking De Montforte Brothers series, critically acclaimed author Danelle Harmon introduces us to Englishman Lord Charles de Montforte, who awakens in the tender care of an American beauty after being wounded in battle. Amy Leighton has long wished for someone special to enter her life and take her away from a cruel, unloving step-family, but the handsome stranger is from an enemy land...and he's sworn to love another. A 1775-era Cinderella story sure to enthrall!

    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The narrator was terrible! He made Charles sound like an old man, and the women voices sounded like my brothers when they mimic mocked girls.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Danelle Harmon? Why or why not?

    Maybe, although this story had a lot of potential it fell flat in awkward silences way too much.
    The character Amy got anoying very quickly, and then the book continued to long to ware Charles even became anoying.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    This narrator is so terrible. Normally I deal with a narrator, and let them grow on me. But throughout the whole book I could not picture Charles as a younger man of late twenties, because he sounded like he was 85.


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

    This book did inspire a few tears which is saying A LOT. It was hard to take the stoy seriously when I was rolling my eyes about the intense irony of the voices, and how they didn't fit the mood or the setting.

    The year is 1180 A.D. and times are very dark. England is lawless for the most part and the people live in fear. Rising to power during this time is the vicious and brutal knight Ajax de Velt. His mission is to conquer a large stretch of the Scots and Welsh border, commandeering wealth and property along the way. He wants to be the most feared and powerful warlord in all of England, Wales, and Scotland, and he is well on his way.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Because the Author is one of my top favorite 3 in the world right now. Can we get the rest of this series?


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The dark lord was definitely my favorite. I loved reading about him changing. This story is kind of an adult version of beauty and the beast.


    Which character – as performed by Kiff VandenHeuvel – was your favorite?

    Again the dark lord. Kiff VandenHeuvel did the dark lord's deep voice so well.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Entertainingly heart wrenching.


    Any additional comments?

    Can we please get the rest of this series on audible?

    To secure her family's alliance with the powerful Clan Mackenzie, Stella Morrison has no choice but to wed the notorious Kade Mackenzie. Unable to ignore the whispers that surround him, she resigns herself to a marriage in name only. Yet as the fierce warrior strips away Stella's doubt one seductive touch at a time, burgeoning desire forces her to question all she holds as truth. Leading a rebellious army should have been Kade's greatest challenge... but conquering the heart of his reluctant bride becomes an all-consuming need.

    Story
    Would you listen to Highlander Taken again? Why?

    Yes I would. It was intertaining, and it was the 2nd book to it's seris, which I didn't know when I first bought, and listened to this book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The sexual tension, the fact there is a traidor among them. How as you listen you hear Stella grow, and become less frightened. This book is adveture, tention.... and romance, but it is much more then romane, but yes it does have graphic sex seens.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    I thought the narration was slow, also I didn't like how it was Stella telling her own story. I felt like she reused words, and phrases to much.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Just listening to Stella grow more couragous, and she was able to do so because of the freedom her husband gave to her.


    Any additional comments?

    All in all it was a great listen. One I will probably listen to again.
