I liked Mary Balogh when she was writing about the Bedwyns, those novels were interesting, had real characters and storyline.
For a while now, I feel that she has run out of new ideas for stories and people to write about. This book in particular has nothing that I have not read from her before. Same repetitive sentences, characters, literally the only difference between this novel and others are the hair / eye color, names, and bosom size of the main characters.
Disappointingly boring, could not even finish it.
Painfully simple writing, on the level of a horny high school student's. The storyline is a backdrop for sex scenes which are not enjoyable due to the almost coarse language.
I could almost not believe that this book was written by the same author who could write books so great as the "A place to call Home" or "Blue willow" or "On the Bear Mountain". The story line was unbelievable, the characters were unrealistic and static.
Fast forwarded almost the entire second half of the audiobook, when realized that it is going nowhere.
Loved it. Passionate, interesting, romantic. True Sandra Brown book. Dick Hill is a great narrator, sometimes struggling with female voices but overall very good.
I have read this book at least three times, one of my all time favorites. I thought it would be interesting to listen to it. I can't say that it was not enjoyable at all, but I didn't like the interpretation. I felt that Senneth, the main female character was completely misunderstood. But what was especially bothering me that the narrator gave a voice of a 12 old girl to a young man of 20. It would be interesting to see how she would solve the problem of suddenly changing the tone for the same character in the fourth book when he becomes the love interest of the future queen.....
