This book is captivating and I couldn't put it down. It was just as good as the first book (Never Seduce a Scot). Genevieve went through so much hardship and Bowen loves her no matter what.....who doesnt like a book like that?
I really love how Maya Banks wrote this book. It almost seems like its a continuation of the first book. So many times when there is a trilogy the author doesnt include many of the characters from the first book....or if they do they are only in a few pages and vague. This book is mainly about Genevieve and Bowen but the people from the first book (Eveline, Graeme, and other family members) are also included beautifully within the story. I loved that!
Loved it! A+
I was a little surprised to find this book very different than other Laura Kinsale books. This story is not dark or has characters that are deeply distressed. Rather, it is a lighter more balanced story with characters that are charming, witty, fun, and true to life.
Trevelyan (Trev) is a dashing Frenchman who has loved Callista (Callie) since he was 16. He has a devil-may-care attitude that is endearing and very amusing. Callie is spinster Englishwoman who is practical, loyal, and loves animals. They have a unique “cat and mouse” relationship immersed with clever joking/bantering conversations that are very amusing.
Nicholas Boulton is a top-notch narrator!! (He is the perfect narrator for LK’s books).
This is truly a well written love adventure that is filled with friendship, loyalty, loss, laughter, mischief, fun, love, and even a cow! It's worth a credit.
This is a very sweet love story between Rachel,Rivers, who is a beautiful, , well educated Texan and Brand Silsby who is a handsome, half Indian warrior. This story is very predictable but still kept my interest with its good verses evil and prejudice theme. Its an old-fashioned, easy going, tender story that's hard to resist. I would give this book an overall 3.75 stars.
This story is part of a series and at the end of this book it gives an excerpt of the next in the series "The Oregon Bride". This has peeked my interest even more and will be listening to the next in the series.
This book is one great adventure from beginning to end. This is the story of Cam, who is sworn widower and Joan a young woman who's mother just recently died. They set out on a fast paced adventure that progresses from friendship to romance to love.
It is a well written book that is filled with charming characters, cute fun, adventure, mystery, and romance,. The narrator was wonderful and his accent was so........divine.
This one is worth a try especially if you enjoy highlanders.
This is the second book in the series "Guardians of the Targe". I would not recommend listening to this book if you haven't listened to the first book "Highlander Betrayed". This series is more of a fantasy type highland romance. The "Powers of the Targe" is actually the centerpiece of the series.
This book builds on the relationship between cousins Rowan and Jeanette and how they deal with Rowan being the Guardian of the Targe. The story delves deeper into the powers they both possess, the battle with the English, their relationships with the clan and their "protectors" (the men in their lives).
I did find it interesting how this series shows women in a more dominant role. The "guardian of the Targe" is in charge of the clan and when she decides to marry, the man has to give up his clan to live with her......interesting concept.
Phil Gigante did a wonderful job narrating this romance. This story isn't a deep historical book but more of a light fantasy that you'd listen to on a lazy day. I will be sure to check out book 3 when it becomes available. .
This book is one of Hannah Howell's early books and it shows in the writing. It does have some sensual or sexual tension between the main characters but it doesn't seem as strongly developed as in her later books.
I enjoy books that have characters with flaws and Islaen and Iain definitely have issues, one of which takes manipulation to resolve. Islean has low self-esteem with very little "backbone" and Iain suffers with deep fear which manifests into him looking like a jerk most of the time. Together they learn, become closer, and develop a strong bond.
No, this book is not the most spectacular story but it is not a total disaster either. I still found this book to be likable in many areas so I would still give this book 3-1/2 stars. Its an even better listen if you wait and get it on sale!!
This well written Medieval love story is quite different than most because this story is weaved around a generational family feud. Christian and Gaithlin find themselves torn between their passionate love and family loyalties. Its a story filled with adventure, honor, murder, forgiveness, and love.
Each chapter of this book begins with an excerpt of Christian's journal. These tidbits of his life are filled with adoration, deep emotion, challenges, and wisdom, which adds to the believability of this story.
A must read If you enjoy Medieval love stories.
I love historical romances that are written with feeling, detail, character development and good romance....and this book delivered it all for me. It is a classic pirate story with many character twists along the way.
This is one of those books where ALL the characters (even the secondary characters) are written so well that they feel multi-dimensional. The characters have flaws, are vulnerable, and show weakness and strength. Even how the author describes scenery such as flowers or seascapes makes you feel like you can see the vivid colors, smell the sea air, or feel the wind blowing though your hair.
The narrator did an excellent job with this sweet, exciting, romantic, quirky, mysterious story. This is a must listen for anyone who enjoys eloquently written stories.
This is a charming highland romance that is filled with bits of mystery and suspense. The main characters Shona and Dugald are a delightful pair and the secondary characters add depth to this enchanting story. (This is not a heavy detailed historical but more of a fun light-hearted romance)
If you enjoy light, fun-filled highland romances then this one is sure to entertain.
I listened and enjoyed "Spymaster's Lady" and knew I had to give this book in the series a try. After listening to both I think that "Spymaster's Lady" was better but "The Forbidden Rose" did not disappoint.
This book is written around the history of the French revolution. This intriguing story details the culture for that time period with added suspense, espionage, and romance. The author eloquently writes each character with depth by tapping into their feelings, expressions, and personality.
I am looking forward to other books by this author. If you like stories with history, suspense, espionage, intrigue, and romance give this one a try.
This book is a novella of this series and not a full length novel. I would advise getting the first 3 books before listening to this one because this book elaborates on past events and gives more clarity as to how the Clan members connect while giving glimpses of the future Graham Clan (the next series). The author weaves a captivating tale that is full of mystery and adventure. A must for highlander lovers.
The narrator is wonderful in this series. He does an exceptional job with each voice....doesn't get any better!
