For those who've read my reviews before you know I love series books that continue on with the characters from the previous books. Because this series is about a family this really adds so much depth to the stories and the characters seem more dimensional. Of course, the addition of new characters amplifies the likability of the series.
"The Longing" is about Kyle's journey and tells not only how he deals with the heartbreak from the first book but how he discovers that love can evolve despite bad circumstances. Amelia has her own set of insecurities which, when combined with Kyle's, makes this story a true to life challenge.
I find this series endearing because it's basically about a good old-fashioned family. The author writes strong rugged men who aren't perfect but are wiling to change. They don't back down when the going gets tough. It is a an emotional story filled with friendship, caring, desperation, love, hope, and trust.
Although I think these books could stand alone, I would advise reading these books in order of the series. I think the reader would lose too much character personality and the story comprehension would fall a bit flat.
If you enjoy beautifully written detailed family stories with a sweet, unforced romance....then this is for you! I recommend this series.
After finishing "True to the highlander" I knew I wanted to know Robley's story
I was delighted to find that this book was just as cute as the first. In this story, Robley sets off for an adventure and meets up with Erin who is a 21st century career minded and college educated woman. They develop a quick friendship which evolves into a romance that defies centuries. Their journey is romantic, witty, clever, and magical.
If you like fun and easy listening Highland romances then give whole series a try.
I almost skipped this one because of the bad reviews but I'm glad I took a chance.
This is a light and humorous highlander time-travel romance set in present day and 1423. Alethia Goodsky is of Native American decent, is an accomplished violinist, and a strong independent woman. Malcolm MacKintosh is a Scottish warrior who is strong, brave, and smart....with a quick wit. Malcolm finds Alethia and immediately they both feel a strong attraction to one another. Their time and cultural differences are evident but Alethia's Native American background allows her to become more accustomed to the 15th century. They begin to realize that they have more similarities than differences.
I did not find the narration of Angela Dawe irritating at all. Each voice was unique and I thought she did a very good job with this book.
This book is charming, funny, touching, romantic, and very entertaining.
Not sure why Audible released this trilogy out of order - doesn't make sense. They released in the order of 3, 1, 2. ("The Pirate Prince" is book one, "Princess" is book two, and "Prince Charming" is book three). I've previously listened to book 3 and enjoyed it.
This is the story of Allegra and Lazar. Lazar is the handsome former Prince of Ascension who is consumed with vengeance after a life filled with grief, murder, deception, and torture. He meets the current Governor of Ascension's daughter, Allegra, who is a compassionate, curious and innocent young lady. Both of these characters are flawed and have insecurities but they grow and overcome many hardships together. Their journey is a roller-coaster romance filled with kidnapping, revenge, adventure, and pirates. It's a good 3.75 star beginning to this trilogy.
Elizabeth Wiley does a great job narrating. She made each voice unique which added to the enjoyment of this book ;-)
I took a chance on this book because I was looking for something a little different. This book has been available for a while with no reviews and to be honest I wasn't sure it would be worth my time but it turned out to be a delightful listen. .
It takes place in a small town in Texas where everyone knows everyone. The main characters Kellian and Annie are total opposites - he is a "sinner" and she is a "saint". They begin their unusual courtship disliking each other's "values" while attempting to change each other to their way of life.
This book has a very relatable aspect in regards to first impressions and judging people. We can't deny that we are all guilty of criticizing, critiquing, and wanting to change people to conform to our "standards". It deals with this issue with sincerity, humor, grace, and repentance.
If you are looking for a book that is very sweet, witty. has great characters, has more romance than sex, and has a good message then give this one a try. I'm glad I did.
I was a little surprised to find this book very different than other Laura Kinsale books. This story is not dark or has characters that are deeply distressed. Rather, it is a lighter more balanced story with characters that are charming, witty, fun, and true to life.
Trevelyan (Trev) is a dashing Frenchman who has loved Callista (Callie) since he was 16. He has a devil-may-care attitude that is endearing and very amusing. Callie is spinster Englishwoman who is practical, loyal, and loves animals. They have a unique “cat and mouse” relationship immersed with clever joking/bantering conversations that are very amusing.
Nicholas Boulton is a top-notch narrator!! (He is the perfect narrator for LK’s books).
This is truly a well written love adventure that is filled with friendship, loyalty, loss, laughter, mischief, fun, love, and even a cow! It's worth a credit.
This is a very sweet love story between Rachel,Rivers, who is a beautiful, , well educated Texan and Brand Silsby who is a handsome, half Indian warrior. This story is very predictable but still kept my interest with its good verses evil and prejudice theme. Its an old-fashioned, easy going, tender story that's hard to resist. I would give this book an overall 3.75 stars.
This story is part of a series and at the end of this book it gives an excerpt of the next in the series "The Oregon Bride". This has peeked my interest even more and will be listening to the next in the series.
This book is one great adventure from beginning to end. This is the story of Cam, who is sworn widower and Joan a young woman who's mother just recently died. They set out on a fast paced adventure that progresses from friendship to romance to love.
It is a well written book that is filled with charming characters, cute fun, adventure, mystery, and romance,. The narrator was wonderful and his accent was so........divine.
This one is worth a try especially if you enjoy highlanders.
This is the second book in the series "Guardians of the Targe". I would not recommend listening to this book if you haven't listened to the first book "Highlander Betrayed". This series is more of a fantasy type highland romance. The "Powers of the Targe" is actually the centerpiece of the series.
This book builds on the relationship between cousins Rowan and Jeanette and how they deal with Rowan being the Guardian of the Targe. The story delves deeper into the powers they both possess, the battle with the English, their relationships with the clan and their "protectors" (the men in their lives).
I did find it interesting how this series shows women in a more dominant role. The "guardian of the Targe" is in charge of the clan and when she decides to marry, the man has to give up his clan to live with her......interesting concept.
Phil Gigante did a wonderful job narrating this romance. This story isn't a deep historical book but more of a light fantasy that you'd listen to on a lazy day. I will be sure to check out book 3 when it becomes available. .
This book is one of Hannah Howell's early books and it shows in the writing. It does have some sensual or sexual tension between the main characters but it doesn't seem as strongly developed as in her later books.
I enjoy books that have characters with flaws and Islaen and Iain definitely have issues, one of which takes manipulation to resolve. Islean has low self-esteem with very little "backbone" and Iain suffers with deep fear which manifests into him looking like a jerk most of the time. Together they learn, become closer, and develop a strong bond.
No, this book is not the most spectacular story but it is not a total disaster either. I still found this book to be likable in many areas so I would still give this book 3-1/2 stars. Its an even better listen if you wait and get it on sale!!
This well written Medieval love story is quite different than most because this story is weaved around a generational family feud. Christian and Gaithlin find themselves torn between their passionate love and family loyalties. Its a story filled with adventure, honor, murder, forgiveness, and love.
Each chapter of this book begins with an excerpt of Christian's journal. These tidbits of his life are filled with adoration, deep emotion, challenges, and wisdom, which adds to the believability of this story.
A must read If you enjoy Medieval love stories.
