    In financial straits and on a sure path to spinsterhood, Venetia Milton thought her stay at the remote, ramshackle Arcane House, far from society's prying eyes, would be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to engineer her own ravishment. She was there to photograph the relics and artifacts collected by a highly secretive organization, founded two centuries earlier by an eccentric alchemist.

    Would you try another book from Amanda Quick and/or Anne Flosnik?

    The narration is so terrible that I quite honestly can not tell if the book is any good, thus the average rating for the story.


    What didn???t you like about Anne Flosnik???s performance?

    I can't put my finger on it exactly but I think it's a combination of her voice, accent, and her portrayal of the characters. She makes every character, including the male characters sound like a prissy school teacher.

    Someone would see Ilsabeth Murray Armstrong hang for murder. When her dagger is found buried in the body of one of the king's men, there is little room for doubt-the perpetrator must pay with her life. But Ilsabeth is no killer, and only one person can help clear her name: Sir Simon Innes, a man so steely and cool that no danger can rattle him - and no woman in distress can sway his heart. Until now.

    Would you try another book from Hannah Howell and/or Angela Dawe?

    I would try another book from Hannah Howell; but, will stay away from Angela Dawe.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Hannah Howell? Why or why not?

    Yes


    How could the performance have been better?

    The inflection at the end of every sentence got to be so annoying that I thought about ending the audible performance and buying the print version for the kindle and having the text to voice feature read the book for me while driving. The character voices were pretty bad, the timing wasn't bad but not good either.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Highland Protector?

    The brothers visiting intentionally meeting her in prison before meeting the brother.

    "The city of San Francisco is being stalked by a huge shaved vampyre cat named Chet, and only I, Abby Normal, emergency backup mistress of the Greater Bay Area night, and my manga-haired love monkey, Foo Dog, stand between the ravenous monster and a bloody massacre of the general public. Whoa. And this is a love story? Yup."

    Any additional comments?

    I can't say for sure if this book ever got better as I haven't been able to finish it yet. I have tried 3 times and had to turn it off all 3 times feeling vastly dissapointed. From the story line to the narration, It's terrible.

    Strong-willed and free spirited, lady-in-waiting Marjory de Warenne long ago gave her body and soul to the charming and beguiling Earl of Warwick, Guy de Beauchamp. But her family never approved of the pairing. Now, on the eve of war and an arranged marriage to another suitor, Jory yearns for the man who could make all of her dreams come true.

    Melanie says: "Captivating!"
    "Just O.K."
    Overall

    Just Ok....I prefer historical romances with more action and adventure, villains, and strong women who aren't afraid to stand up to there man and are hard to catch. This book didn't have an exciting, adventurous story. Additionally, the author has a tendency to repeat the same exact thing over and over and over again and it started to irritate me.
