I can't believe some people gave this four stars! After 2 1/2 hours I just couldn't stand it any more and had to stop listening. The heroine is SO unappealing! She is a completely empty headed, uninteresting person! And the narrator gave me whiplash switching back and forth from a British accent to her American accent. Some of Lorraine Heath's books are so good, I can hardly believe this is the same author who wrote "Between the Devil and Desire" for example. I definitely wouldn't recommend this one!
I usually love Lisa Kleypas' books but this one was really disappointing. It's one of those books where you look at the time remaining, see 2 hours and groan "Oh NO. I have to listen to two more hours of this!!! Ugh" The "heroine" was SO annoying. Weak and whinny. It was painful to listen to. I would definitely recommend that you save your credit on this one. Rosalyn Landor does her usual wonderful job but even she can't save this one.
I can't believe some of these other reviewers listened to the same story I did. This story was so slow and boring that I kept looking hopefully to see if it was almost over and actually skipped ahead a few times. None of the characters were particularly appealing, in fact the hero and heroine were both really annoying! The story line was dull. Part of it sounded like it had been written by a college freshman who just finished taking Psychology 101! I guess some of you might like that sort of thing, in which case, go for it. But I definitely feel like I wasted my time!
I love this book. The characters are strong and wonderful. The situation in interesting and different. The narrator is really good. Definitely give this one a listen.
I remembered liking this book when I read it years ago but unfortunately, the audio book just wasn't very captivating. The narrator was kind of annoying as was the heroine of the story. The premise of the story was interesting but it couldn't overcome the other difficulties that hold this one back. Not horrible but not great either.
Another lovely story from Lorraine Heath but the reader is disappointing, especially after we heard the other stories in this series wonderfully read by Susan Ericksen! All the characters sound the same! Where is Susan when we need her?!
Suzanne Enoch's books are usually really enjoyable: good characters, interesting plot and enough fun and sex to spice things up. This one was just plain boring. The plot was kind of silly, the characters rather dull. As one other reviewer said, other than physical attraction for each other there was little else there. Their own angst was pretty much only skin deep. She was just shallow and that he would give up his convictions so easily just because he has the hots for a Sasannach wench. Pretty Ho Hum over all.
Loved this book! An engrossing story and a very interesting hero and heroine. I have listened to it twice and enjoyed it both times. I would definitely recommend it.
You know how you wish a good story would never end? Well, this story seemed endless! I couldn't wait for it to be over! The heroine was SO whinny and silly I felt like hitting my head against the wall and shouting: could this woman be any dumber! Really. Don't waste your credit. This book will just make you grind your teeth in anguish!
I loved the way the Alex and Lilly were both such strong characters. Their arguments and eventual deep love was lovely to listen to and I enjoyed every minute. The plot is more interesting than the usual "hero must save heroine" plots of many romances, and the ending brought a smile as I listened. I definitely recommend this one!
A nice story with some interesting twists, good characters and a fine narration. Definitely go for it!
