I read the book on my Kindle and listened to the audible version in the car. I always prefer reading to listening as it goes faster, but this was a good listen as well.
Although I liked all 4 of the Scoundrels of St. James books, this one had a twist that I never saw coming. Good story. Well told. The narrator is good, if a bit slow-paced and maudlin at times.
I've listened to all of the Scoundrels of St. James books. All four were good performances, though I admit I liked Antony Ferguson's voice better. Susan Ericksen did a good job of differentiating character voices. I really appreciate that.
If you're looking for passion or even a sense of romance, this isn't the book for you. It's poorly written and childish. The narrator does what he can, but he's a bit too dramatic for this drivel. And when he voices the little girl, there is no way you can actually understand what she's saying. Skip this one.
Elizabeth was incredibly annoying. I'm pretty sure if I had gone on (I made it to chapter 22, so I did try) my eyes would have permanently stuck in the rolled position. Her fixation on Caleb was macabre at best.
I love romance novels. I love westerns. I'm not sure what genre this really is. Sacarin, maybe? I'm turned off of that.
In that it was syrupy sweet, too, I guess it did. That's not a good thing, though.
Elizabeth. Nick deserves someone with a spine who doesn't flirt with two men at the same time.
I shouldn't have trusted the great reviews on this one. My advice is to read some bad ones, too.
I just couldn't get past the heroine falling in love in a week that we didn't even see. She was abducted by her arch enemy. A week passes and bam she's in love. No reason, just, hey it's OK if he ravishes me cause I love him. I was done.
Her Scottish accent was horrible. The heroine sounded stupid and annoying.
All of them.
The plot had potential, but it never got there. Neither the hero nor the heroine was likable. In the end, there was no reason for her to accept him or believe that he had changed. And there was no reason for him to want her to. Do yourself a big favor and skip this one.
