    This love story totally took me away! I couldn't get enough of listening to it. It made me laugh and cry and always wanting more. I hated to see it end. The narrarator was perfect for this story and brought out every emotion.

    They call him the Devil.... He is the most notorious laird of Scotland: fierce, cold, deadly...and maybe even worse. Yet Evelinde has just agreed to wed him. Anything, she thinks, is better than her cruel stepmother. Though Evelinde should be wary of the rumors, she can't help but be drawn to this warrior...for the Devil of the Highlands inspires a heat within her that is unlike anything she has ever known.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I have listened to almost 300 audible books, and this was the worst narration of them all! It was too hard to get beyond it to find any merit in the story.


    What could Lynsay Sands have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    It was hard to tell if the book was good or not because the narrator was that bad.


    What didn???t you like about Marianna Palka???s performance?

    So horribly bland and blase.


    Any additional comments?

    I was just so surprised that the poor narration of this book was ok'd by the author and publisher. Would love to know what the thought process was in that.

    Eight-year-old Tessa Lee and her little brother, Travis, are left at a campground by their mother and her boyfriend, a crooked-nosed man named Goose. All the two children have is a tent, their bags of clothes, the firefly cloak they'd used for covers the night before, and a phone number printed in magic marker on Travis' back. Tessa Lee knows that her momma and Goose have skedaddled in a car with recently changed license plates. She just doesn't know why.

    This is the 3rd book I have listened to with Jenna Lamia as the narrator. Her voice truly brings out the best in a book. A fantastic book.

    Everything in Elizabeth Egan's life has its place, from the espresso cups in her gleaming kitchen to the swatches and paint pots of her interior-design business. Order and precision keep life under control, and keep Elizabeth's heart safe from the pain and hurt she has suffered in the past. Being a reluctant mother to her six-year-old nephew while trying to keep her design business on track is a full-time job for Elizabeth.

    "What a Great Read!!"
    Overall

    This book was fabulous. The author captured all the emotions and allowed you to truly be a part of them. The narration by Jenna Lamia was excellent. I don't think I would have enjoyed the book nearly as much had I read it. Highly recommend this book to everyone!
