This is the perfect little fairytale with some mishap and plenty romance. Loved it and narrator Anne did a great job!
I think the author out did herself with seven brothers and is now lacking in motivation for the remaining stories to come. The first three books were pretty good and I enjoyed them but I found myself really digging deep just to have finished this book. It was dragged out,a bit meaningless and lacked a lot of spirit. The author could have done a better job. We barely had any passionate scenes and at one point I was lost and had to remember what was happening and where everyone was. If this is how book 4 was, I shudder to imagine what to expect in book 5. Maybe I will be wrong but we will see.
I think as these sister stories carried on Marion (the author) made the stories more and more outrageous. First, the Vicar needs to be thoroughly chastised, sleeping around, not taking care of his parish and daughters. In this book his wife who was always ill with some ailment or another and died. Surprising but maybe not, this daughter is another naive, self centered and holier than though person. The best part of this book was when the butler said "nothing would make him open the door to the drawing room unless summoned to. No sight in all his years, was worth that", pertaining to his mistress having sex with the Colonel. I have gotten this far by all means I might as well read the last book and finish the series.
Once again I have listened to another story of the Armitage sisters. I honestly don't know why I am still listening to these books but I can't help myself. And again no surprised Deirdre is vain, self centered and thinks only about her wants and needs. However, I must say with the greedy Vicar for a father and a mother who is always faking illness (in my opinion) what else can we expect? As a vicar's daughter, should you even be sneaking out to meet a man at night? What is going on with vicar's daughters?? Did I miss something in the church? Oh well, onto the next chapter.
This is one of those romances you want to read over and over again. It was refreshing and interesting without a villainous plot to it. Sophia and Darleigh were great together. Wish it was longer so we could have known what baby they got and what happened maybe in a years time but guess it is left up to the imagination. This book does not indicate but it would made a great follow on with some of the friends. Overall, a good day's listen.
This book turned out to be more than I expected. It was well written and I was delighted with the narration. Phil (my first listening to him) did a great job. I can't wait for the other books or that there would be more books in this series. I assume so just because this is book 1 but I am also wondering if there is going to be another guardian or if Rowan got a daughter that carried on as guardian. There are so many possibilities but since King Edwards wants the Targe so badly, we know he is going to go after it. Can't wait!!
Like I said with book 1, the girls in this series is as naive and gullible as you can get. I am still up in smoke on whether to love them or barely like them. I believe back in this century, some women were too sheltered. Besides being young, Annabel was contrite and vain. It was all about her and what she wanted and I believe that is the idea because as much as you want to put it down, you also want to keep listening so that you know what happens in the end. Onward to book 3 for me. The narrator I have not mentioned because I am barely tolerating her and I have no choice as she is the narrator for all the books in the series.
I began listening to this book and gradually got more and more interested more so that I will listening to the entire six books. However, if they all follow the same storyline like this one with such naive girls, I may just die. The Vicar also needs to be flogged and those darn hounds he keeps purchasing and worshiping over his family and parishioners needs to be sold off. I wanted to pull my hair out when Minerva went on the drive not knowing what she was heading into and died laughing when she walked in on Lady Godiva and started reading then again when she went back in and heard her with the colonel. However, six daughters and I am sure he is going to sell them all off until someone takes him into hand. I assume this series is going to have me laughing and seething mad all the same.
This is my first book by the author and needless to say it was interesting but dragged a little too much for me. It was not my normal historical but it was a good listen. The narrator did not bring this book alive like she could have. Just because of the storyline and this narrator, I found myself losing interest in this book more than once.
OMG!!! Julie Garwood, one of my favorite authors did a splendid job with this story and the ending I believe to the Crown Spies series unless another pops up. The narrator however, I would think twice about listening to another book that she narrates. Her character voices were horrible and I nearly died with the pronunciation of "Colin". At first I had no idea what she was saying because she made it sound like "colon". I was so very disappointed!!!! Who does not know how to pronounce Colin? If I had a magic wand and could have zapped another narrator to read I would have done that.
I love Stephanie Lauren, she is one of my favorite authors of all times, so I was looking forward to listening to this book another one of the Bastion Club but Steven narrating was so distracting and horrible I was finding it very hard. Oh goodness, I don't know what to say! I am not sure what it is about his voice but it was just so annoying!! I listened to the end with a tired heart. I hope to never listen to another book that he narrates. This could have been a lot better with say Simon Prebble whom I absiolutely love listening to.
