Prensently One of my favorite period romances. It did follow some of the basic premises and lines of the Amanda Quick period novels but still it was quite enjoyable, and I personally appreciate the Quick aproach. I just can't put five stars to formula writting, no matter how much I enjoyed the story. The humor in the writing made me laugh out loud. I looked up other Michael Page performances after because I thought his performance made the character and characters of the book an outstanding listen.
That our main characters came from a posistion of understanding their self worth, and then each others.
I particularly enjoyed the scenes that made me smile and laugh. There were many.

Thanks for having Michael Page perform this book. In particular I think he took it over the top of what I expected and made it one of my favorite Quick audible selections.
I was so hooked on the first three books, and this one was rated the same so I spent 2 credits and got ripped off. John Lee used this book to go on for hours stroking his voice in an up and down cadence that so completely makes my mind tune out. Ive tried to listen to it over and over hoping to get beyond or over what the narrator is doing and soon have to back it up again and try to figure out what is happening. Lee uses that strange cadence (long boring poem tone that died 2 centuuries ago) for all dialog and narration and it is ludicrous in areas when you Imagine the scene he is actually reading. Its too much translation to go from the book, through this narrator and then try to figure out the imagry and characters of the story. Instead of being transported into the story I was completely crazy for , now I feel completely crazed after just a few mins of listening. The series is Destroyed and I would rate this ZERO or Negative stars. I see lots of others would too, so why does the book as listed show so many stars? AUDIBLE are you LISTENING to the ratings? I trusted that rating , and the DOUBLE CREDITS to mean I was getting similar or same to what I had before. I feel ripped off and would like to return this disaster and use my credits for a good book.
Note that Dotrice won awards for his narrations and from what I see around the web Lee has only won scorn. Why is this book a double credit? Why did Random House let Lee record beyond the first Chapter? I get the feeling folks in charge have buried their heads on this one and are just holding out their hands for cash from those who approved the first three and thought those happened on purpose.
