At long last, Zarek's story is on audible! This is my favorite book in the Dark Hunter series--followed closely by Acheron. The plot drew me in immediately and even though I've read this book several times, Fred Berman's narration added depth and emotion. I must admit to feeling an innitial stab of disappointment when I discovered that Holter Graham wasn't reading Zarek's story, However within minutes, Fred Berman made me forget all my objections. Not only does he give Zarek a rather sexy accent, but his emotional and intense naration brought the characters to life.
Zarek is the quintessential dark and tortured hero and Astrid's strength and courage are the perfect complement. Zarek's story touched my romantic's heart.
I don't often reread books, but every so often, I do. I read The Prince of Midnight years ago and I was overjoyed when I learned it was coming to Audible. The plot is compelling and Leigh and S. T. are wounded and interesting--a refreshing change from so many historical romances with near perfect characters. Nicholas Boulton is an amazing narator and he brought the characters to life. This will definitely be a reread for me.
There were so many. Leigh's introduction to horse training, the scene with S. T. and the rose in Leigh's cousin's garden and of course, the memorable epilog. :)
S. T. very seductive.
This book was wonderful from first to last. Leigh and S. T. are both flawed and far from perfect. The characters are far more interesting as a result. If you enjoy books with intense, suspenseful sexy plots and richly developed characters, this book is well worth a credit. Nicholas Boulton is an amazing narrator and he brought the characters to life. He has quite a talent for the various accents in the story and the way the villain almost sang some of his dramatic lines was one of my favorite things about the audiobook.
If you are tired of all the historical romances that take place in the midst of a London season, you’ll enjoy the refreshing change of scene in this book. I’m overjoyed that more of Laura Kinsale’s books will soon be coming to Audible.
I am very glad I read "Covet" before it came to Audible. As always, J. R. Ward delivers an action-packed sexy story with an interesting premise and intriguing characters. I was thrilled that two of the brothers made appearances and I liked getting to know characters who only had a minor role in the BDB books.
I was extremely disappointed when I discovered that Jim Frangione wasn't the narrator. Eric Dove's rather unemotional narration really detracted from the story. He gave Vin diPietro a strange accent that made me squirm with discomfort every time Vin talked. Because of this, it took me well over a month to listen to the entire book.
If you are already a J. R. Ward fan, the lack-luster narration probably won't scare you away, but if this is the first audio book you've experienced by J. R. Ward, I highly recommend that you read her Black Dagger Brotherhood series before reading Covet.
