Absolutely , this was a wonderful book and a great experience . I would even recommend it to someone who is not usually a fan of Regency era London romances and know that they would totally agree . l will most definitely listen to it again...
I found that I was very quickly drawn into the story, loving and hurting and laughing with the characters as if I knew them all in person.
Oh yes... I know that I can always count on her. She is masterful at giving each character its individuality and personality. Not once do you ever have to wonder which characters voice that is. She is amazingly distinct... I forever wonder how she does it! All you hear is the story, the people, the emotions.... with Rosalyn Landor's performance you hear and live the story, not listen to a narrator.
Indeed! I laughed out loud, wiped tears from my cheeks, got angry and frustated, felt elation and despair... good tears, mad tears, sad tears, and gloriously happy tears!
I listen to (and read) a LOT of romance books and regency era London is my favorite. However I find that I truly enjoy most books but there is one here or there that really winds me into the tale. Once in a while the story drags you so totally into it that you really literally and absolutely FEEL the story. This is one of those!
☆☆Word of warning☆☆.. this author has two books on audio at the moment and when I read the summary for the other one I discovered it was the first in a series and that this was supposed to be second....
I loved it. Both the story and the characters were great, hilarious, serious, dramatic and sincere... The often unusual story line was interesting and the listen pleasing to hear. As a regency romance this one is very good and a little different.
I give a good two thumbs up and recommend this one as definately credit worthy.
If you're a fan of regency romance, love a good rake, a good tale, and someone to wholeheartedly cheer for then this book was written for you. I don't know what to say except that I for one am glad I didn't miss it!
Credit worthy, YES!
This story had it's moments both great and just good. Enjoyable... I found myself truly missing the characters from book 1, which I have to admit I felt was better. However I ended it looking forward to book 3. So that said it is obvious that this book is definately credit worthy in my humble opinion, definately credit worthy.
The storyline unique, the characters well done, and the telling easy and pleasing to hear. Two thumbs up from me.
Regency romantic mystery at its finest.
I loved this tale. I found the strength of the heroine respectable, the kind intent of the hero eventually heartwarming, and the twisting turning and weaving of the plot quite compelling. Yes, verrrry good book.
Well worth a credit!!!
This one was tricky! I guess I should have really realized what the title said... irrelevent since I totally enjoyed it all the same.
You have to go into it knowing you can't take it seriously or you could get tangled a bit. Even so it was a good romance even if slightly twisted. I found the utopic life the women had created to be of a strong intent and worthy of it's creation. The concept of what they wanted from the male species a humorous addition leaving the stories intent slightly twisted to be sure.
Credit worthy? Yeah... But I think I bought it since it was reasonably priced and I got to save the credit.
Loved it! I love the way that some details from book one were carried thru but without making you wonder what they're talking about or getting frustrated by repetition. (I truly dislike it when too big a portion of a book in a series is spent in the telling of the previous books!) I even enjoyed what was left to follow to book three! I can hardly wait until it's available....
I found this story delightful, slightly dark occasionally, and often funny. It's a regency romance mystery that I for one thoroughly enjoyed! From characters to story line, it was a good book!
Credit worthy? Heavens yes! But if you have not read the first book in this series yet then I emphatically encourage you to do so before reading (listening to) this one.
This was a fun, sexy, dramatic, bite your nails story. There was lots of room to veer off onto side stories that would have been good too. But I'm glad to say that this story was in it's entirety a very good book. Definately credit worthy! I had a teenie bit of trouble adjusting to the fictional lands of king and princes but once I gave into it I found that there was such a nice tale to enjoy.
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.
