I had high hopes when I downloaded this book. It was the first one of this series that I got because I was desperate for something to listen to. If I hadn't already read the Black Dagger Brotherhood series I might have loved it and sped through all the effusive detail jabber. Not that this is a bad book altogether, but I can pretty much name every book that ever inspired the author just by listening to this one. There just far to many parallel references to Black Dagger Brotherhood and one backward nod to a Gone With the Wind line that just rubbed me the wrong way.
The Narrator was great. The character speaking with a east coast accent trying to use Gaelic endearments didn't work for the character.
Since I haven't read the first two books in the series, If I were the editor having already read BDB I would have sent it back to her and had her change every similar reference to this other series. Pretty much every aspect of the book is a direct reflection of the Brothers in Dragon form right down to referring to themselves as "Males" What they wear and how they characters describe themselves, how the characters interact with each other, The Dragons feed off their Females same as the Brothers, it's just energy this time instead of blood.
Honestly I am surprised this wasn't caught sooner.
I'll keep them to myself thanks.
I have spent the past year passing up this series of books.... I would look at them from time to time and think "Nah,not really what I'm looking for" I was a "terrible fool." These are amazing. Granted they can get a bit long winded but the unabridged version is far and away worth it. You'll find yourself swept away in a fantastic whirlwind of timeless passion as well as remarkable historical thrills and chills. I had to upgrade my credits to get the last three books. No question, it had to be done. P.S. Davina Porter should do a romance with Phil Gigante. That is if she hasn't already and I just don't know about it. "Heavy Sigh"
