I loved the print version and listening to the audio edition, just added to my pleasure of enjoying this book all over again.
It would have to be Daniel, my idea of a rugged mountain man, all rough and tough on the outside, but who has a loving and sensitive soul, that he keeps hidden very well. But I loved Aimee too, a high spirited modern woman, used to taking care of herself and she fights having to depend on Daniel.
Alexandra did a remarkable job of speaking the different voices and even the Frenchmen were believable. Since I cannot pronoun the names of the native tribes and do not know their languages, it was very pleasant to hear them pronounced the way they should be and this added to my listening pleasure.
I was drawn into this story from the very beginning when Aimee found herself lying on the green buffalo grass in Yellowstone, surrounded by nothing but wilderness and realized she had traveled two hundred years into the past to 1810. This begins the beautiful story of two people finding each other even though they lived two centuries apart. But could they stay together and would Aimee want to stay here in the wilderness with Daniel? I loved all the sexual tension between the two of them and I laughed, worried and cried along with them, well, actually sobbed at certain parts.
All the secondary characters were well thought out and quite a few were very likable, like Elk Runner, one of my favorites and as the story continued, I was able to recognize their different voices, as Alexandra read the audio.
This is a wonderful beginning to all of Peggy's audio books and I am looking forward to listening and enjoying the rest, just as I am enjoying reading her books. Highly Recommend. JudyE
It definitely is one I will listen to again. I loved the book when I read it and now after listening to the audio book, it's one I will enjoy again. Of course knowing Cody Roberts would be narrating it, I knew I would enjoy it. I love listening to Cody's voice and I was so happy when I knew he was going to be the narrator for this audio book and the rest in the series. A swoon worthy voice!
After a ten year absence from her father's ranch after his death, Katherine, our sweet and lovely heroine has come home. But she is not the same outgoing girl Trace remembers, when they were young children growing up on her father's ranch. Trace, now the ranch foreman at Red Cliff, works hard to fulfill his dream of having a horse run in the Kentucky Derby some day. Keeping in mind the promise he has made to Katherine's father before he died, Trace makes a wonderful hero. Always ready with a teasing remark, it takes a little while before he sees what is in front of him and than you see the loving, supportive and protected side come out.
Lots of twists and turns with wonderful supportive characters and a few bad ones to keep you wondering how this is all going to end.
Beautifully written with loving sensitivity and narrated perfectly, although I wouldn't expect less from this author or narrator. Peggy L. Henderson is a wonderful author and Cody Roberts is a favorite narrator of mine and as usual, they pulled at my heartstrings with this one. I'm looking forward to the next one in the series, In His Touch! JudyE
A wonderful group of books all in one audio package that will keep you listening until the last word. This audio book starts with Teton Sunrise with Alexander Walker and Evelyn's story, a wonderful beginning to this series and one you will not want to put down. Teton Splendor follows with Joseph Walker and Sophia's story, also a book that will keep you listening way past your bedtime.Than as a bonus, we have Yellowstone Proposal, the sweet romance of Evan and Kara Russell which than flows into our last story of Teton Sunset with Lucas Walker and Tori.
For me to tell you which is my favorite would be impossible. All the heroes and heroines in each book are so well thought out as in all of Peggy L. Henderson's books. Strong and handsome and set in their ways, these heroes will each meet their match in the beautiful and feisty women they set out to save, only to find out that maybe they need saving also. The romance of each one intertwines with the mystery and building suspense and everything else we come to expect from this author. All the supporting characters are so planned out, you either love them or hate them. And as always, it's full of humor and love of family, and so beautifully narrated by Steve Marvel. He had me sobbing at times because of the beauty or sadness of the story and was so very believable in his narration of the characters.
You can tell by the beautiful descriptions of the surrounding scenery as each story unfolds, that the author knows and loves the areas of Yellowstone and the Teton Mountains in each of the book. At the end of each story she tells us the history that was mention in each book and I find that very fascinating and an added bonus. As you can tell, I loved this whole wonderful audio book and highly recommend it. JudyE
I have listened to Cody Roberts narrating Peggy L. Henderson's Come Home To Me and Ain't No Angel, the first two audio books in this series and I just loved his voice. I am so happy the author continued having him narrate this series. As I listened to Cody narrate Diamond In The Dust, I knew he was the perfect narrator for Gabe McFarlain! His narration of all the characters were very believable and I especially got a kick out of the flirty women!
Between Peggy L. Henderson's beautiful and descriptive writing and Cody Roberts awesome narrating, I must say this is the best audio book I have ever listen too. Cody brought Gabe to life with his slow sexy voice as he took me through the beginning chapters until the very end. Everything I pictured as I read the ebook kept me captivated as I listened to the audio and I experienced so many emotions, some so beautiful and heart rending I cried. Full of heartbreak and humor, this audio book has so many twist and turns in it, you are guessing all the way through. About the time you think, aha... I know where this is going, the next chapter you find you were wrong. I have so much admiration for this author and her books. Each book is so heart touching but every one is also so different in their telling. She has a wonderful gift of keeping you so invested in each one and after reading you can't wait until the audio book comes out. Thank you Cody Roberts and Thank you Peggy L. Henderson for a job well done! You made this old gal very happy and looking forward to the next one! JudyE
Yes, I enjoyed listening to this audio as I worked around the house getting things ready for the Holidays. I have read the book twice and found this was another way to enjoy it.
This is the first time I heard Luke E. Andreen's as a narrator and he made the book come to life for me. Looking forward to listening to him again.
Once again, Shanna Hatfield has written a book that you can sit back, relax and enjoy as Luke narrates this beautiful warm Christmas story. Luke brought to life Tate's strong, sensitive and loving cowboy heart as he fell in love with our heroine, Kenzie. Strong, independent and beautiful, Kenzie didn't want anything to do with this handsome rodeo cowboy, she keeps meeting at the airport while she waits for her flights. She's been through that before with another rodeo cowboy and it didn't work out. But Tate is equally determine to get to know this beautiful woman he can't forget about and keeps running into at the airports, as they each fly to different destinations across the country for their jobs.
This audio book is about romance, laughter, caring friends and loving families, just as you come to expect from this author. Her secondary characters are always so well thought out and bring so much to her books. Luke was a wonderful narrator in bringing me so much pleasure as I listened to a favorite book and one I will definitely enjoy again.
This is a very clean romance but never, never boring. JudyE
Yes! I enjoy listening to audio books and this happens to be a favorite because of the author and the narrator. I have listened to Nick Sarando before and really love his voice.
I love this audio book that ties in with the Yellowstone Series, which once again brings together a few of my favorite heroes and heroines from the other audio books. Daniel and Aimee, Chase and Sarah, Dan and Jana, all very strong characters, that are hard to let go when you reach the end. Peggy L. Henderson is a wonderful writer and her stories pull you in from the first page until you have read the final word and than you want to start over again. Listening to Nick's narration of this audio book did the same thing and adds so much pleasure and his portrayal of all the characters were very believable, especially Chase. This audio book has the humor, romance, love of family and a little suspense that you always expect from this author along with the beautiful descriptions of Yellowstone National Park. I highly recommend this audio book and the whole Yellowstone series. JudyE
Yes I will. I have read the book twice and this is another way to enjoy a book you love. Steve Marvel is a wonderful and believable narrator and I always enjoy listening to his voice.
The beautiful Teton Mountains is the background for this story of Lucas Walker, a handsome, rugged mountain man, with an irresistible smile, who swears he will never marry. Born and raised here in the wilderness of the mountains, he yearns to stay free and roam as he pleases. But fate has another future planned for him and he meets Tori, our heroine, a beautiful, feisty, young and courageous woman. With a mind of her own she holds a dark secret she cannot share with anyone, for fear of her life.
Once again, Peggy L. Henderson has given us another hero and heroine to love and root for a hea, woven into a wonderful story full of romance, passion and suspense with an ending that brought tears to my eyes. Well done! JudyE
Adventure! Family! Heartwarming!
I loved listening to Alexandra narrating this audio. I was swept along into the story and was comfortable with the way she used her voice with each of the characters. I usually do not care for female narrators, but this is the third audio I've listen to her narrate and enjoyed. I'm looking forward to listening to her again.
A Christmas story centered around Daniel, Aimee and their family. Even though it is a novella, it is a nice addition to the Yellowstone Series. Just long enough to get to revisit with some of my favorite characters in the Series and see how they celebrated Christmas. Add a little danger, what else would you expect back in Yellowstone in the 1800's, fun and romance and you have a wonderful story for now and at Christmas. I enjoyed it now and will be enjoying again. You can enjoy this as a stand alone, but the whole Series is wonderful to listen to. JudyE
I found it as enjoyable as all the other audiobooks I have listened to and will be listening to again. I enjoyed Steve Marvel's voice narrating the audiobook. I listened to him narrating Teton Sunrise and was happy to know he would be doing this one also. So far they have all been 5 star audiobooks.
Raised by Byron Yancey in Boston as his daughter, Sophia Yancey never knew she was born and raised in the wilderness of the Teton mountains until she was two. At that time her mother, Whispering Waters and her father, Laurent Berard were both murdered by an old enemy. Yancey, promising to keep her safe, disappeared back to Boston, before the killer found and murdered her too. Now twenty years later, Sophia a beautiful young lady, due to become engaged to a prominent man of Boston, has little idea how her life will change on the night of her engagement announcement.
Six months before, in the Teton mountains, Joseph Walker, son of Alex and Evelyn Walker, was asked by Sophia's grandfather, Chief Two Bears, to travel to Boston to bring his granddaughter Raven (Sophia) home to him. He was dying and wanted to see her one more time. Joseph knew it would take many months, but out of respect for his friend, Chief Two Bears, felt he needed to do this.
I enjoyed listening to this audiobook as Joseph a rugged mountain man, fell in love with this young, beautiful society woman while trying to protect and keep her safe from an unknown enemy, as they traveled through the mountain wilderness to her grandfather. And I enjoyed listening as Raven, no longer feeling as though she didn't belong, grow into a strong and confident woman.
Full of romance, suspense and danger from an old enemy, as they travel through the mountain wilderness, I'm sure you will enjoy this audiobook as much as I did. I am looking forward to the third one in the series. JudyE,
Yes, I enjoy listening to audio books while working around the house. If I have read the book, this just adds another wonderful way to enjoy the story. I also enjoy listening to Nick Sarando narrating. He has a nice way of describing what a character is thinking and I like his voice for the different characters. I would never hesitate to purchase an audio book if I knew he was the narrator.
Dani may be one of my favorite heroines in the Yellowstone Series. I liked her the first time I met her in Yellowstone Awakening and I am so happy the Author gave Dani, her own story. Dani is a beautiful, strong, brave and independent young woman that takes the hard knocks of life and deals with them with courage and hope, that things will get better. When she meets Josh in the wilderness of Yellowstone, she realizes who he is and that she met and fell in love with him five years ago, but never expected to see him again.
Josh, handsome and rugged, but a hard mountain man, (but below the surface a very loving and supportive man with those he cares about) doesn't remember Dani and wouldn't care if he did. He always swore he would never get married unless he had a shotgun held to his head. He likes his independence too much. Little did he know what the future held for him.
Yellowstone National Park in 1877 is the background for this story, of a sweet and passionate romance with danger and suspense to keep us turning the pages, as our hero and heroine dodge bullets, trying to save each other from the enemy.
I loved this audio book and will be enjoying it again. I highly recommend. JudyE
Yes I would. I enjoyed reading the book, but listening to the audiobook, bought every emotion that the characters were feeling to life.
When I first started to listen to the audiobook, I didn't think I would care for his narrating, but by the time I was into the 3rd chapter, I couldn't picture anyone else reading this audiobook. And the emotion in his voice, had me believing in him, as the character. I thought as the other reviewers, that he didn't have Evelyn's voice right at the beginning, but it grew on me as the story progressed.
Yes, there were quite a few, but the ending had me crying and I am still sniffling two hours later. I felt the same way with the ebook but not quite as strongly and I give credit to Steve Marvel's voice and great narrating. When it really mattered, his voice nailed it and for this he gets 5 stars. Hopefully he will be narrating Teton Splendor!
This is another wonderful romance by one of my favorite authors. I've read all of the Yellowstone Romance Series and this ties into it very nicely, and you do not need to read those, to enjoy this series though I recommend it. Plenty of romance, lies, danger and a little suspense. Throw in a rugged mountain man and a beautiful young women and this makes a wonderful audiobook to sit back and enjoy. JudyE
