I like to listen to Rosalyn Landor so this book was a pleasing listen. The reason I would not give this book more than 3 stars is because of the characters themselves. I could not enjoy or relate to them.
Steamy, Fresh, and Engaging
Blade, very nice take on the bad boy gutter rat but lovable misunderstood Hero.
The chivalry and the ice queen finally melted by his unbending love.
All of it. That man should be illegal in all states! Yummy
Oh yeah, I even woke up in the middle of the night to listen to a few minutes before I fell back to sleep.
Don't pass this book up! This book is a rare find and I am glad I took the time to listen to it.
I found myself loving and hating this book with equal parts. The story line of a sadistic assassin and a naïve young maiden was generic in description but my, my, my did this story have more emotion and depth than I could image.
Spoiler**- I loved this book because of the emotion and heart pounding feeling it caused in me but my level of disgust was greater than my enjoyment. I just can't understand why this sheltered girl would ever imaging doing the sick things she did. Why did they have to hurt each other to love each other? I can understand why she felt the need to dominate this perverse man in the name of self preservation but why could they never just love without pain? It sickened me but I had to contemplate that his past and pain was so great that he could offer only this part of himself. Too damaged to ever be "normal". He was molested mentally and physically and I had to accept and understand that he was hurting and this was how his broken spirit mended itself no matter how distasteful it was to my prudish feeling on the topic.
I couldn't wait to hear the narration of the Hero. Matthew did a great deep smokey voice that I just loved. Stoy story was drawn out and I hate to zone out on the overly detailed bits.
The plot. The entire book was about planning to get back a goblet. No really that was it! Just planning to get a goblet.
His hero voice made my kness weak. Loved it.
The author is very detailed in her descriptions no matter if it is a love scence or a conversation. She can go on to a point where you lose interest quick.
Yes. Rosalyn Landor is a good narrator and easy to listen too. Mary's book has a interesting twist.
The end was predicatable but no less entertaining.
Bold clear expressional
I enjoyed how the author was able to twist the H/H emtional issues together to form a common ground.
No. The narrator was so terrible and painful to listen too I couldn't even enjoy the book enough the know what is was about.
The meeting of the H/H and how their story ties them together was a very interesting plot I wanted to entertain myself with listening to. But the naraator was so awful that I had to turn the book off.
worst narrator I have ever heard. I wish she will never record anything ever again!!!! not only were her accents inconsistance she had terrible expression for emotions and you could hear her breathing in a mic while she read. Most annoying. She did not properly expression emotion or tones and my god those accents made my teeth itch!
I'm sure the book may have been good but I will have to buy it in ebook form to find out since the narrator was so horrific.
Ban Angela Dawe!!!!!Please
Not as good as the first book in this series but worth listening to. The main characters don't have much to recommend themselves. Plot is missing.
I was very impressed with the beginning of this book but as soon as the main characters part ways it becomes very boring and repetative. Keep in the mind that the excitement only last for the first chapter or so. The heroine harps on her same denials so much that I want to scream.
I actually like to listen to Rosalyn Landor and Julie Garwood's book was interesting and kept my attention. Finally a good listen after a few flops from other authors and narrators!
