I enjoyed the story fine, but the bad Scottish accents by the narrator were incredibly distracting to listen to, so I only read the book the old-fashioned way. There goes my monthly credit. :-( Like many others, I was recommended this by audible because I had just listened to the Outlander series. That narrator did such a fine job, not just with the Scottish accents but also with the characters, that I was able to listen for hours while cooking, driving, you name it.
The novel itself is a nice light mixture of historical fiction and romance -- not up to the caliber of the Outlander series certainly, but enjoyable enough. Just stick to the print version and you'll probably enjoy it too.
It reminded me of Nora Roberts' Donovan Legacy series more so than Outlander.
In contrast to the narrator for Outlander, Rosalyn Landor was so awkward with the Scottish accents and male characters as to sound almost mechanical at times. I tried a couple of times to listen to her, but I had to turn it off after 10 minutes.
It's just a light read, not inspiring.
