I would listen to this book over and over again. This has the suspense, the mystery, and the tug at your heart strings that all good historical romances need in order to be a great story!
I loved the way JA incorporated the back story. I am a person who has to understand why a character is the why they are, the little "news story clips" keep us informed of the past troubles in a way that is time sensitive is incredibly well done.
My favorite character was Mac. I have traveled to Scotland and all of the fake Scottish accents drive me crazy. Angela Dawe gave enough burr into the character to make it believable that he was a Scottish gent with an English education.
This book made me laugh, they found themselves in some of the strangest personal situations.
JA is a fantastic author. I love how she brings her stories to life again and again. Even though these are historical stories, we can still relate to them on a human/emotional level. We can feel the pain and sorrow, the hurt and the love. This is a book that will remain on my bookshelf to be reread many, many times.
I loved the struggle between the two main characters. The pull they felt towards each other and finally how the heroine stood up to the Queen. Best ever!
I have said this in my other reviews about Angela Dawe, but she does a very good Scottish Accent. I have been to Scotland and it drives me nuts to hear fake accents. She does a very, very good job.
I loved the part where the heroine stood up to the Queen. In the opinion of a redhead, it was a great way to stick it to the woman.
Heart strings tugged
I would compare this book to the Highland Pleasure Series. Similar strong heroine types, but the stories make them each their own.
the performance, I loved the attraction between the two characters, I did not like how slow the story got started.
Not an extreme reaction to this book, but a very good fall night read.
