After reading the first book in this series I was eager to hear the next book and it didn't disappoint. Lady Isabella married Mac MacKenzie after knowing him one night. She was young and he was impetuous but now she is older and wiser and knows exactly what she wants and won't settle for less. Mac must go through a journey of discovering who he is and how to win his wife's affections back. This story is touching and human. It shows the flaws we all have deep within us. I love lady Isabella's tough but loving character, she holds her ground and demands that Mac realize how selfish he has been. Ashley's ability to flesh out these two characters and make them interesting is spot on. From beginning to end the listener is drawn in to this story. The complex characters and their relationship to each other and the storyline are enjoyable and I couldn't stop listening. The narrator is good but I wish she could read with more emotion, sometimes she comes off flat and cold. Other than that this is a great listen.
I stumbled upon this book from another reviewer and I'm glad I did. The rich descriptions of the Scottish countryside combined with witty banter make this book a must listen. I didn't realize it was a second book in a series so now I'm going back to listen to the fisrt one. I love the narrators range of voices and different accents, she gives the story a real personality. Add in a great conflict between characters and some historical facts and you have yourself a red hot love story.
Blane Sutherland watched as his parents were murdered in front of him as a child. Now he one mission in life, find his parents killer and exact his revenge. Lady Aliah De Mowbray feels deeply responsible for her mothers death the day she was born. Now her only wish is to join the church for the rest of her life in an attempt to atone for her supposed sins. When the two of them are forced together in an unusual circumstance they find they can't resist the passion the burns between them.
If you love hunky highlanders and strong stubborn women who somehow manage to fall in love mixed with a little history you will want to spend a credit right here.
I loved this story but the child like narration destroyed it for me. Listening to her read the intimate scenes in the book left me feeling awkward. The narrator reads fast and very femine and sterile. I love Tessa Dare's writing and clever dialogue, it's a shame it was ruined.
I'm not a big fan of books written by several authors, but I am a huge fan of all three of these ladies so I took a chance. The story is cute and predictable but sweet. It seems to read fast as each author is given a small time to tell a whole story. I prefer a more detailed story so I didn't really enjoy its much as I could have if it were just one story.
Susan Duerden did an incredible job with the narration and kept me listening even when I wanted to give up. All in all its a heart warming story that's just sweet.
This is the second book in a series and reading the first book helps but is not entirely necessary. Annie Andrews only has eyes for Arthur Eggleston and tries time and time again to run away to Gretna Green with him while her sister is on her honeymoon. Unfortunately for her Jordan Holloway has been appointed her gaurdian in her sisters absence.
Jordan does not enjoy the task of looking after a 19 year old girl who climbs the ivy of a sniveling man-child's window and is constantly sneaking off to marry that same useless boy. What Annie sees in him is beyond Jordan's comprehension but he's in charge of making sure she doesn't marry Arthur Egghead. Hilarity insues as he thwarts one attempt after another until he begins to see Annie for who she really is, someone who has the same feelings and independent spirit as him. Now he has to resist these new feelings that are bursting up in him or betray his friendship to his best friend and her sisters husband all while trying to protect Annie's reputation from the nosy prying eyes of the ton.
I'll admit it starts slow and is a little repetitive but it's a fun read and worth the credit. Justin Eyre does a great job with all the characters and brings the story to life. A truly romantic listen. Looking forward to hearing more from Valerie Bowman.
I wasn't familiar with Valerie Bowman's writing and I took a chance on using a credit for this book, but it turned out to be well worth the gamble.
Devin Morgan's fiancé cries off after reading a scandalous pamphlet and he has a good idea who's responsible for writing it. Amelia Templeton has a real knack for writing and her scandalous phamphlet is flying off the shelves of London, but no one knows for sure who the real writer is and speculation is rife.
Devon Morgan just wants revenge from the woman who jilted him years earlier and wed someone else. Now she's a widow but he can't forget how she threw him over for another man. The fun insues as circumstances bring them together and lies of the past begin to unravel.
Ms. Bowman's writing is far from predictable, just when you think you know what's going to happen she throws you a curve. It's fun and romantic and full of great characters. I was able to listen for hours at a time with a smile on my face.
Loved this story, it's very well written and the narration is top notch! I had a little trouble at first getting into the story but then it took off and I was hooked. I love the use of the Gaelic language and the narrators ability to say it all correctly. The storyline progresses very well after the small bump in the begining and the narrator is wonderful.
Daria Babcock's entire life is turned completely upside down when she decides to visit her grandmother in Scotland. Everything she knows to be true will be tested and it will take a stubborn Laird to help her straighten things out. The characters are all very well created and attention to detail is superb.
Most definitely worth a credit.
Love, intrigue, betrayal and a Highland Laird, great story and well written but I can't get past the narration. It's odd but because Angela Dawe does great voices that are very believable but the in between parts were annoying. It was an odd combination of good and bad. I think if it doesn't bother you, you will be ok.
I read the reviews on this one and thought, oh boy a good romance book. So....not a romance. Half way through I looked back at audible to see if I had accidentally downloaded a mystery instead of a romance. I would label this a mystery, and lets throw in some limp sex scenes to make it a "romance". I think as a mystery this story could have stood on it own. its a semi good mystery but as a romance it falls way short.
The lead character is a self made man and that's admirable, the female character is a down and out aristocrat in serious need of help. The plot become twisted and tangled leading the reader down several wrong paths that become confusing as fingers get pointed in every which way but the right one. The love scenes are awkward and disconnected and I did not feel any chemistry between the two characters. While Anne Mallory had a good concept, I think trying to mix the mystery with the romance didn't quite come off and made the story weak it the romance part. The characters themselves are quite human and afflicted, but together they are just dysfunctional and disjointed.
Needless to say, I wasn't a fan. I think if you really like mystery/romance you will probably enjoy. I would have liked this story better had it been a romance/mystery.
This story is about Miranda, a modern day, free thinking widow and Winfield Elliot, a man who likes his world to be predictable and orderly. Needless to say, when his house burns down and he needs to rebuild, a woman is the last person he expects to come to his aid, but when no one else is available to help him in the short span of time he has to work with he is forced to utilize Miranda Garret's help. A battle of wills ensues that eventually leads to love. It has some funny and charming moments.
The premise sounds promising and it is mildly entertaining but predictable. Those aren't always bad qualities in a book and at the sale price its well worth the price. I really like male narrator, Michael Page, he is very well spoken and I enjoyed his voice. I was disappointed that he made the lead character sound so old and stuffy but I enjoyed all his other voices. Overall, for me, this story was ok. Its a likable story that's fairly reliable in it's plot.
Not Ms. Alexanders best work by any means but a fairly safe way to pass the time. I wouldn't waste a credit on it, at the sale price of $7.27 its a value, anything more is a waste of time and money.
This last book in a trilogy about the hunky McCabe brothers is every bit as delicious as the previous two. If your a first timer of Maya Banks I highly reccomend you start with book one. That's not to say this book can't stand on its own, it most certainly can but why waste the steamy fun on just one book?
Caelen McCabe is the youngest McCabe brother. His no nonsense approach to life can put people off, but those that know him know the reason for his gruff ways. When he was younger his trust and love in a women had cost him dearly. Now he can trust no one, especially a women. When he steps in to marry the women his brother cast aside for another he has his work cut out for him. He is now the leader of his wife's clan and no one is happy about that. Can he learn to trust and gain trust in return? His life and as well as his old clan and the new one might depend on it.
I love how Maya Banks puts a story together. Her excellent writing skills put together a story so beautifully that I find I never want it to end. She spins a tale of intrigue and sexual conquest much like a spider spins web, sucking the listener in deeper and deeper until they are helpless to escape. And this case have no desire to escape. This is romance with a capital R! If you love steamy love scenes and brawny hero's as well as stubborn not so docile heroines then you will love this book.
Kudos to Kristen Potter who reads beautifully and smoothly. Her well spoken voice makes this well worth listening to.
