A good romance captures you from the first lines. This one was a little bit slow, nothing happened, the dialogues were dired and silly at many occasions. The story was ok, it had all the ingredients to be a wonderful romance, an unfaithful bride and a cynical and bitter hero but the author was not capable of setting fire between the two of them. Not bad at all but could be more captivating.
A very nice story, many romantic scenes well balanced between romance and sensuality. If you (like me) have read the book I'm sure you will love listening to it. A jude Deveraux can't be bad, she just knows how to capture hers listeners and a time-travel romance is always entertaining.
The only negative point was the narrator, his voice is perfect for a male character but terrible for the female. I can't understand why audio-books don't have a man reading the male characters and a woman for the female, it would be much more pleasant for the listeners.
Worth a credit!
Couldn't be more predictable! The story was good but it turned so typical and boring...all of a sudden the heroine turns from a shrew into an angel, then she gets confused about her feelings about Tayg "the bard". She can't decide if she was in love with him because he is a bard or because he( in truth) is the leader of his clan....SO UNBELIEVABLE!!
In short I wasn't particulary impressed, the story couldn't keep my attention, so boring I had to fast foward many times.
I bought this book after reading the reviews, so I decided to give my point of view to help people who have the same taste as mine.
I actually really liked this book. If you are a medieval/romance lover you certanly will like this one, it is exactly what you would expect, predictable and kind of enjoyable. I loved that Wulfric and Milisant hated each other since childhood and the way they constantly irritated one another to all of a sudden "realize" they love each other.
It's funny how Milisant desperately serches for a way out of the marriage and how the murder plot makes for a way to bring them together.
If somewhat typical, this book is pretty good.
It was a disappointment, Charles wants the whereabouts of anti-govemment "Captain Spindeshanks", his men arrest Hollie Finch who in truth is the captain but she's not telling him, instead she makes him believe she is the captain's wife.He puts her under house arrest and that is the worst part of the story. She acts as they were olds friends and she tries to fix his life as a wife should....She was supossed to be the enemy right? I just didn't get it!!
I can't say I wouldn't, some times we like a writer but not all of her works. Perhaps she has other books better than this one.
Hard to say, I disliked all of them.
I would cut the whole book, I'm sorry to say this but the book was very childish.
A total disaster!! It could have been more!!!
Probably not. Even enjoying the book a lot it's not the kind of story that I would like to listening again, the end is very predictable.
The romance between the characters, even being an arranged marriage they felt in love and they were very jealous of each other, that made the story a fun quick read with a lot of gorgeous passages.
No I haven't, but I will look for more books of this author. I just loved the way it was written, very romantic and with lots of sweet love scenes
I don't think it would give a nice movie, it had too be more deep...profound.I"m not sure of the right word to use, perhaps the story was too light. Good just to read.
I couldn't put down the book, you just want to go on and on to see what will happen in the next chapter. A very nice book the kind of romance that I love to listen.
Sweet and pure! This is the right book to listen after a hard day , so romantic and peaceful that you could listen all night long. The narrator only makes it more enjoyable, just the perfect voice for the storie. If you are looking for something to relax your mind it is the one.
Ryan is just that kind of man that every woman wants for a husband, he moves earth and heaven to make Bethania's life wonderful, even having such a major physical disability.
I couldn't stop listening! A lot of historical passages and a cat and mouse romance that captures our hearts.I have most of Shannon Drake's books in paper, it is too bad that audible has only one of her titles. I recomend and can assure it is not a waste of credit...Just loved it!!!
