    Miles from anywhere, Darracott Place is presided over by irascible Lord Darracott. The recent drowning of his eldest son has done nothing to improve his temper. For now he must send for the unknown offspring of the uncle whom the family are never permitted to mention. Yet none of that beleaguered family are prepared for the arrival of the weaver’s brat and heir apparent.

    What did you love best about The Unknown Ajax?

    Both the narrator's performance and the storyline was wonderful. I thoroughly enjoyed both. The characters were believable. I loved the way the plot developed. Was humorous and suspenseful.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved the Major for both his moral standards and sense of humour.


    What does Daniel Philpott bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Mr. Philpott has a wonderful voice. However, his betrayal of each of his characters brought them to life. Georgette Heyer would have approved of Mr. Philpott's portrayal of them.


    If you could take any character from The Unknown Ajax out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    The hero, of course! I would be thoroughly entertained just by listening to his talking about his travels and the people around him.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a really good audio book. I definitely recommend it.

    Readers’ Choice Award winner Jodi Thomas pens a touching, passionate tale about never giving up on love. Texas Ranger Travis McMurray prefers chasing outlaws to being cooped up in domestic life. But all that changes when he meets Rainey, a stunning beauty who steals not only his heart—but his horse. On the run from an arranged marriage, Rainey wants to start a new life inthe West—but will Travis be able to track her down before she disappears for good?

    Overall

    Jodi Thomas writes the best books. Her stories are always good. If this book had been narrated by someone more suitable it probably would have been a 5 rated. I had even requested Jodi Thomas' books be part of the selections in Audible.com, so I was delighted when they showed up. However, the narrator made all the characters sound old, especially the younger sister. I was disappointed in the audible book.

    Sariana was a cool, confident business-woman, an outcast from the East determined to regain her rightful status. Gryph was an intense mercenary respected and feared throughout the opulent cities and savage frontiers of the West. But from the moment they met, fate made them one. Was it their destiny to be bound to a powerful force that both captivated and frightened them?

    "Really enjoyed the book and the narrator"
    Overall

    Narrators are either really good actors or can really mess up the story. This narrator made the story even better. She did an excellent job of reading the personalities out for each character. The book was good to read, it was even better to listen to with this narrator.

    I was not disappointed. I have listened to this book several times now and will probably listen to it more. I hope I can find more books read by this narrator, especially books by this author.
