This is one I will listen to again.. It was so amusing and the story itself was a good one with strong lead characters.
The humor & the self awareness of the characters. Piers and Linnet know exactly who they are & what they want.
The different voices. I was reading along with the audiobook at times and realized I missed Gavan's childish voice and Linnet's. They (different voices) add so much to the story. Susan Duerden can make the characters come to life with her narration.
This book definitely made me laugh and yes, I felt sadness and horror when Linnet was ill.
I don't usually read Regency type romances, but thought I'd try this because of a review & the sale price and I am so glad I did. Very entertaining and I have already ordered another of her books.
A good story. But the narrator made the hero sound like a pervert. It was very difficult for me to continue listening to the book. The narrator has a decent voice, but his hero's accent and gravely voice made the hero sound like someone extremely ancient NOT sexy or desirable as I am sure the author meant for him to be.
I feel like this book is an extension of the Scarletti Curse.
No!! Not if he continues to make the hero sound like he is 200 years old!
Redo the audiobook with one of the other narrators to give the hero a better image through his voice. At least make him sound younger, please!
This book was so hard to put away, it is hard to say what I loved best- I guess the whole thing. This is definitely a keeper and I will read it again and again. The best book I have read in a while and I read or listen to books constantly. This was a different genre of the types of books I read and this one is definitely a wonderful change.
Poppy, of course! Her outlook on life and her love of life, although she did let people use her too much by trying to make those around her happy. And her views of public property if an item is found in the "bin". Sam comes in as a close second!
Now that is a hard question to answer because I loved them all. I suppose I could say the church scene at the ending of the book.
Yes, when Sam texted all the wedding guests and she ran from the church to find him outside.
The friend who recommended this book said it all- "I will never be able to hear this narrator and picture any other character than Poppy- she was Poppy!" Jayne Entwistle is Poppy Wyatt. She did such a great job, I can see Poppy very clearly in my mind and like my friend, any other character she reads will always be Poppy. Thank you Jayne for all the enjoyment and laughter you brought by bringing this character (an all the others too) to life.
Very entertaining and the narrator was good. These Brotherhood books rank right up there with any of the really good vampire books I have read. I like that these vampires don't have all the stereotypical vampire traits, ie, garlic, sleeping in coffins, etc.
The Black Dagger Brotherhood characters. These guys are so funny with their music and dress. I also like the developing friendships between Butch and the brothers.
The pauses between the paragraphs and the chapters are much too long! I kept thinking the book was over or my MP3 player was going on the blink. Shorten any further pauses.
