Yes I would. Why? Because it was one of those books that you want to turn off and throw one minute... laugh the next, cry again and then cheer the next. ... what is better then that?
This question is why I hate to read reviews since it has to be a spoiler if answered honestly. I'll say this... among all the moments that I feel are memorable my favorite is the moment when you realize that there's laughter in the most serious moment and you feel like you're in on the joke. ...
I have listened to many of the books that she has narrated and altho I usually give her great reviews I have to say that in actuality her voices are limited and I quite often have to think twice about who is speaking since their is not enough, if any, distinction between the characters. All in all still a good listen!
Several! But I will not write a s spoiler. See for yourself!
I think this one is a definite yes... Creditworthiness. .. a 4 on the 1 to 5 scale. Some verrrry steamy moments, as all good Highland novels are supposed to have...
I was delighted to see the second book in the daughters of the glen series. I have to admit tho' that I had some lingering doubts as to how well a second book could be run off the first one without ruining one to create the other... Well I couldn't have been more wrong. The individual threads were woven into a wonderful story that absolutely shines.
References to the first book were minimal but easy to identify.. I often think it takes a special author to figure out how to pull it off. weaving in details we need to know without it being a plug for the previous book (s) in the series is a art form all its own. I see it as grabbing threads or strands from above, as if the first story is hanging above you and a tug here and there to weave in those strands seamlessly, blending yet coloring, tugging things together artfully with tiny knots and shades of remembrance. Ok, I know I am getting carriedd away but the blending was so artfully done that I really feel that expressing that to you says something very good about Melissa Mayhues works.
Credit worthy? YES YES YES!! If you like a hunky highlander with some heartfelt lust, emotions stirred to where they bubble over, a plot with sumptous twists and turns and intrigue. Well..... yes!
Elizabeth Wiley did a wonderful job with the narration. Her characters come to life, they are individuals, distinguishable, with their personalites clear and unmistakably theirs.
Would I recommend this to a friend? , duh NO DOUBT!
I really enjoyed this book. It is outrageously fun, with slightly twisted plots that keep you interested and guessing,there are fantastic characters all well developed and alive, making this a most enjoyable work. and it's just plain wonderful to listen to.
Anne Flosnik as narrator... I think most people either love her or hate her. I find her work is comfortabe to listen to and I stop hearing someone reading a book and just hear the people of the book.. that is a remarkable sign of a talented narrator. However, one note, I do try not to listen to books with her narrations back to back as the characters do tend to blend together. Other than that I have no complaints what so ever! Her delivery is flawless, the cadence and pre
Credit worthy, oh yeah! I wouldn't want to miss it! When I have to listen to it straight thru then it gets both thumbs up and a A+ too!!
Finally a story without the perfectly perfect looking leading man. Or the perfect looking leading man that has scars. This is a realistic character with normal issues wrapped into a good strong, even if somewhat typical, HR. There is something special to be said for it too!!
Mary Jane Wells did a wonderful job as usual.
Yes credit worthy although I paid for it and will most likely buy the rest outright as well.
I truly did enjoy this one. Hannah Howell always has delivered in my opinion and this is no exception. I laughed and I cried and even scolded at the characters a time or two.... there is some slightly twisted sexual content but it isn't delivered offensively. All in all this story left me smiling. A good highland romp with a great cast of characters and a mostly unique story line.
MacNab Ashford did a fabulous job with the narration. Her voice delivers specific characters and their personalities flawlessly. I will look for her name in the 'narrated by' from now on. So many times the choice of narrators is what helps me decide which book to listen to next....
Credit worthy? Yes! I actually paid for it and don't regret it in the least.
I really enjoyed this story. Surprisingly enough I think I will ignore the other not so perfect reviews and keep going with the series. I feel that I can trust Sally Mackenzie to deliver an enjoyable story with thrillingly fun characters... I can only hope that they will have narrators as good as Abby Craden who did a great job!
This was such a wonderful listen. Bursting out laughing versus downright anger, indignant frustration and aggravated trepidation as well as outright disturbing versus sweet romance are some of the reactions that make a good book. I felt them all in varying degrees. I no sooner finished this listen that I went to purchase the next and get it downloaded for listening.
Anne Flosnik is one of those narrators who listeners are likely to either really love or really hate. Unfortunately she has done so many regency romances that I often don't bother with a book I really wanted to 'read' just because I'm not in the mood for her distinctive voice and performance style. I do a lot of listening and can't stand it when one book blends into the next and I am very careful on to listen to her work back to back or even within a five or six books of each other. Don't get me wrong, she is excellent if you like her and aren't listening to her back to back to back. She was one of my very favorites when I first started listening to regency era romances and I would search her specifically and purposely.
Credit worthy? A resounding yes! But at it's reasonable price I just paid for it and don't regret it.
I truly enjoyed this book!!
Worth a credit, hell yeah!
I laughed, cried, commiserated and celebrated along with the characters. I was so enthralled with the story that I can't really tell you anything about the narrator. I consider that to be a good thing because if you reach the end of a story and only know the story then the performance was very well done.
This is a steamy tale with unusual characters facing the ton and finding their way. I found this story living up to it's historical romance classification...plus it's unique in a good way while predictable in others, a really nice mix of expected and unbelievable surprise.
I am not, however, rushing to the next in the series. I have trouble seeing where the timeline meets for the story since what I already know of those characters does not fit with the story description! I was left with a rather uncomfortable feeling when I read it. It does not seem to fit together seamlessly. I actually almost read the lord of pleasure before the mistress of pleasure and even if it's out of order I think knowing what I learned in the latter the better choice would have been to listen to the first (mistress) AFTER the second (lord). But since I have not listened to it yet I can't testify to the validity of that conclusion.
All I can say it yes yes yessssss!
I like the few Lorraine Heath books I've listened to. And got just what I expected. The beginning was very slow, so much so that I nearly moved to another book. I'm glad that I stuck with it. Even though I did shed a few heartfelt tears nearing the end. This story was not overly dramatic, and I do wish the epilogue itself had been more of the story, although' I know full well why it wasn't. I like the characters, they had their own challenges to deal with and were not fluffy airy idiots like some HR characters.
All in all a good, if not exceptional, listen. Creditworthy? I have to give it an even toned "sure...", if this kind of HR is your thing then why not.
I did like the performance of the narrator, her voices were warm and distinguishable, with few moments of confusing blending individuals. There was no compromise of a female voice reaching to do male voices or (my VERY least favorite) a male voice making a mockery of female voices. I liked her male tones, Arch oozed the warm personality he was supposed to have and for that I give her five stars!
I ask myself if this is one of those books I'd suggest to someone. Well, if you were standing there with a copy in your hands and asked if it were worth reading I would probably say 'why not?'. If you asked if it were worth a credit I don't know what I would say.
This was such an excellent idea for a good book. But the reality of it fell short to be sure. The performance was mediocre, making the story line wobble about a bit when the voices suddenly sounded exactly the same just long enough to mess things up! Altho the voice remained pleasant enough the narrator just wasn't ready for this story.
There wasn't quite enough to it. I have to admit it was not unpleasant, I finished it after all. I have many on audio and not on audio that were never and will never be read or listened to until the conclusion. But the drama, the rises and fall, the climax of the story,,, were flat for the most part. I respected the heroine, and how they got into what they had. But the idea could have been magnificent!! but it wasn't.
Worth a credit? If you've run out of possibilities then maybe.
I was listening to the audio edition!!
I hate this question... Books aren't meant to be compared unless its within a series or authors work. This was a almost typical regency romance... but just that.
A voice... the enjoyment of listening to it and feeling comfortable with the listen the whole way thru. That alone says a lot.
Several. But the moment when they finally turn the corner and get it, at last.
Its been a few days since this listen, a couple of books ago. But I still feel that it was a overall smooth story, a comfortable listen. I enjoyed the ease of it. There was no truly great mystery or any overwhelming hurdles... but it was sweet. A LOVE story! Worth a credit? I don't know. If your looking just for love then maybe.
