I don't know what is better, the amazing Gabra Zackman narrating in her signature "Sophie Katz" voices, seamlessly transferring from character to character without missing a beat...or the whitty dialogue of both the primary story, and the chapter beginning quotes.
This book made me laugh out loud many times and it was a quick, fun listen that kept you guessing on who the villians were all throughout.
Definately recommend! Listen to them all if you haven't already, this one was worth the wait!
I love the Hathaways and each year I re-listen. The incomparable Rosalyn Landor is the leading historical narrarator in my opinion, and coupled with the author's flawed and loveable misfit family - this book is my favorite of them all, of all of hers actually.
An emotionally damaged soldier, a loving, caring and unconvential girl who sees the bright side of life and who heals the souls of all she touches, animal or human - make this story such a delight.
The writing and banter is so whitty, the emotions so real, and having followed Beatrix's antics for the past few books, it was a wonderful fitting conclusion to this series.
5 stars, well done and worth listening to each year. *Lisa's Best*
The dynamic duo of Suzan Tisdale's writing and Brad Wills narration has captivated me once again. I am still in awe how the narrator goes from a small child to a 7 foot tall giant, with a host of characters in between without the listener even realizing the change is taking place it's so well done. The story of the gentle giant and the resilient heroin who captures his heart is very endearing. The same lovable Highlanders we have seen in the previous Caln MacDougall series' are all there and a welcome return.
Absolutely worth the credit! Well done!
I truly enjoyed this historical romance! Only Courtney Milan could make the inheritance of traits interesting! The characters, favorites since the first in the series are colorful, endearing and thetheir relationships and stories are believable and at times painful. The journey is a scientific delight, the ending worth the struggles and wait. The parts about Rakus Erectus and associated scientific names cracked me up! But the author's note at the end had me bursting into tears...the historic representation of the Violets of the world and untold stories touched me. This book took extraordinary research, it shows. Worth the credits, and Rosalyn Landor is flawless as usual.
This is a well written book in terms of characters, scenery, and witty dialog. However, I found myself drifting off during many parts that didn't keep my attention. I love historical romance and this is worth a credit, but the plot is not a great suspensful page turner. It is a light, romantic fair and a funny story about "spinster cove". I think I will give the second book a chance however.
This is not a corset ripper, but instead a touching story of a mother's love, a warrior's unwavering will to get his lass, and the coming of age of brave little brothers. I enjoyed the story immensely! Brad is an excellent narrator, he really makes the story!
After two hours, I had to turn it off. The voices of the brothers sound like they are all highly effeminate and unrealistic. It is just not the Julie I am accustomed to having started with her Highland series'. Too long, not the best choice for narration and I couldn't get through it. Just painful.
Julie has really done it again! A great heroin, with a new story line. No clammy, boring English fellows here - this Lord is just the right one to match wits with Christina. Excellent, highly recommend, enjoyed every minute! The narrarator switched from a young girl, a man, another man to a nasty old countess within seconds and you don't even notice.
Turned it off after one chapter, it was painful to listen to the bad writing in this. If you want to read about a highland gigalo, a slut for a queen, then I guess have it. It was the worst first chapter of a romance i have every read/listened to.
Please skip the audio version and download the book on your kindle. You will love the text and story, but will despise the narrator. I enjoyed the book immensely, it is just a poor choice for a narrator.
There are many more detailed reviews so I will save the paragraphs and tell you this is not a hard core erotic novel, thankfully, it is a great contemporary romance set in the Highlands with a WONDERFUL narrator, a great and realistic story line and fascinating characters and heroin. Buy it, well worth it!!! Can't wait to start the next ones.
