The second book in the series was as good as the first. This author weaves a fast paced story with characters that come to life. I'm looking forward to the next book.
I thought this was an enjoyable series of books. Of course, I am a fan of Howell! The first two didn't weave together much, but they were good stories. However, as the series went, the stories became more entwined. Characters were likable and easy too become involved in. I also like this narrator!
Story line was OK. Narrator was not that good, not bad, just blah. Male voices too nasal and women's voices too fake. Overall, not something that kept me very interested.
Read this one a while ago and was kind of annoyed by it's inference to other characters that it seemed like I should know about. Just found out it is part of a series, The Lost Lords, book 4. So now I am reading it again in order which is no hardship, because Putney weaves good tales with likable characters and some suspense and I found the book enjoyable the first time so I would imagine it will be even better now that I have all the background information!
Just wish audible had identified this as a series and that they had book 5: "Sometimes a Rogue"
This is book 3 of the Lost Lord series. Again unique characters, that have a common connection. I enjoyed the spy aspect of this one, and did not suspect how they would end up together till the end. (whoops too late for a spoiler alert-but we all know they have happy endings, right?) Once again, the last little bit of the book set the stage for the next one. Like this narrator.
This is the Lost Lord series book 2 by Putney. I like the story and was taken with the characters in this one. Not the typical hero and heroine, but easy to get involved with. Enjoyed their story and enjoyed the way the series winds the characters together. I also like that each book does a little to set the stage for the next one, makes one want to move right into the next story!
I wasn't too excited about the description of this book, but when I was looking at some of Putney's other books, I realized this was part of a series: The Lost Lords. This is book 1 and audible has 4 of the 5 books. I had already read "No Longer a Gentleman" and had the feeling I was stepping into a story that had already started because of the way it referenced other characters, so I was pleased to figure out that this was the start of that series.
I like to start at the beginning, makes for greater understanding and allows the story to build. Despite the bland description, I found this to be an enjoyable read with likable characters. I will be reading the rest of the series.
This series got better as it went, each book was better than the one before. I think it is because it was like more and more pieces of a puzzle that came together in this final book. I also like that McCarty sprinkles her historical books with some factual stuff which makes it all the more interesting. Worth the credits.
The first book (Highland Warrior) was a good read, but unremarkable. The second book built on the first and I like a series that brings back characters from previous books, so it worked for me. Some of the characters I became interested in are not the main ones, but interesting all the same and I am enjoying hearing their stories as well. This book has a little of everything...brawny men, fighting, passion, clan loyalties and lack thereof, intrigue and treachery, and war. This series gets better as it goes and I am looking forward to the third book.
I liked it. The fact that the heroine wasn't the typical drop dead beauty was a nice change of pace. The hero, while good looking, wasn't the typical rich, bored socialite either. That said it made for a good read with a small bit of mystery to keep you interested. My only complaint would be that the narrator does not do women's voices very well.
Not my usual type of book, but I enjoyed it. I actually listened to each book twice, because the first time I rushed through to know what happened so had to repeat to get details. It appears the series isn't over yet either as the epilogue to this book leads into what must be another story building on more characters. The narrator is good, and the stories are different and interesting. My only complaint would be that I would have liked to see characters from previous books in the series, have more depth in the new stories. Worth my credit and my time.
