    Story

    In the resplendence of William the Conqueror's London court, the lovely Saxon captive, Nicholaa was forced to choose a husband from the assembled Norman nobles. She chose Royce, a baron warrior whose fierce demeanor could not conceal his chivalrous and tender heart. Resourceful, rebellious and utterly naive, Nicholaa vowed to bend Royce to her will, despite the whirlwind of feelings he aroused in her.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    This book starts with a strong character who protects her land from harm by carrying around a sling. However, as soon as she meets her darling husband she turns into a sappy, hangy, woman who tries to earn his respect by throwing tantrums. Perhaps the difficulty is that this is an audio book. If you were reading a normal book you could skip a page here, or a paragraph there and the plot would move along fine and keep you interested. But wading through every last detail gets tedious.


    Has The Prize turned you off from other books in this genre?

    A bit...


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When on the roof protecting her castle, she slings a stone and fells the leader of the approaching army.


    Do you think The Prize needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No. One was bad enough.


    Any additional comments?

    I feel stupider (Is that a word?) for having listened to this book.

    When Rob Hale wakes up in hospital after a motorcycle crash, he is told that Lena - the gorgeous blonde woman who was on the back of his bike - doesn't exist. The woman he describes bears a striking resemblance to his recently deceased sister, Laura, but has he really only imagined her? Convinced that Lena is as real as he is, Rob teams up with Rebecca Lewis - a London-based PI who has a mysterious connection to Laura - to follow the clues. He learns that even a close-knit community like the Isle of Man can hide dangerous secrets that will not stay safe forever.

    If you could sum up Safe House in three words, what would they be?

    Fun, time waster


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The end needs help. It could have been so much better if... no need to spoil it. It seems like the author didn't know how to finish so he just took the easy way out. Also the beatings with the baseball bat seemed unnecessary and disgusting.


    What about Simon Vance’s performance did you like?

    Simon Vance is an excellent reader. He makes the characters enjoyable through his voice.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Bike races, spies in trouble, beautiful and intelligent women- all the makings for an adventure. Oh did I mention Hot, smart biker dude.


    Any additional comments?

    Love the beginning. This book could have been so much more...
