It's a little iffy after reading this book, if I could continue reading Elizabeth Hoyt books. I really enjoyed the Four Soldier books, and enjoyed The Raven Prince, but it was like slogging thru mud reading The Serpent Prince.
The hero, Simon, irritated me when in one part of the novel he kept saying "I'm sorry". I just wanted to scream! And Lucy was just too good to be true. She didn't really have any redeeming faults.
The minor characters were more interesting than the hero and heroine!
Something different -- maybe a book by Sherrilyn Kenyon. A Night Hunter book.
Moira Quirk did fine.
The minor characters, especially Hedge and Newton.
The main characters have flaws, and more dimension, than you often come across in a romance. And I really enjoy the start of each chapter, as the author intertwines a fairy tale of sorts, relating to her main story.
The Earl -- he's pockmarked, and ugly, quoting Mrs. Wren, yet for all that, it makes him so much more likable and interesting as the book progresses.
Just the pragmatic way Anna takes life in stride, even though she has been hurt so much in the past
Elizabeth Hoyt has a special way of writing, that is very different from so many romance writers, with a good historic background.
Yes for Gaelen Foley, absolutely not if it's read by Emma Greene. I had already listened to Gaelen Foley's
Yes, I've listened to
My first choice is always Simon Prebble -- he just does a great job. Next would be Jenny Stierlin, or Tavia Gilbert, or Barbara Rosenblatt.
As this is already part of a series, and not the last book, I'd say no. I'm sure the author will continue to show bits and pieces of Damien and Miranda's romance.
Definitely will continue to read Gaelen Foley's books as long as Emma Greene isn't reading !
