This highland adventure is set in 1329 Scotland. This is not a Historically detailed story but rather a light romance with some Historical elements.
This is the story of Aishlinn, who was treated cruelly (emotionally & physically) by her step-father, brothers, and an Earl. This story really focuses on Aishlinn’s self-esteem issues and shows her journey of self discovery filled with adventure and romance. The “hero” (Duncan) originally finds Aishlinn to be a frightened and abused young woman. He helps her to overcome her insecurities and demonstrates how patience, tenderness, and love can transcend abuse.
My only negative about this story is that by the end of the book there are still a few unanswered questions. Primarily details about some people and events in her past. Maybe they will be answered in the other books in the series? Hope so.
This is definitely a Cinderella style romance. This is a love story that is more romantic than sexual and, of course, they lived happily ever after!
This is the 2nd of 3 books in the Age of Faith series by Tamara Leigh. The books in this series are “clean read” books and can be read by young teens and adults alike.
This story continues with the Wulfrith family and focuses on Beatrix Wulfrith who is the sister of the “hero” from the first book. Beatrix is a woman with strong integrity & faith and Michael is a man who struggles with family loyalties, trust and faith. Their romance blossoms through tragedy and develops into an engaging love story.
As I stated in book one’s review, this series has “Christian” elements which gives dimension to the personalities of the main characters. These moral “standards” increase understanding of the character's motivations which add to the believability within that time period in history. It is not “preachy” in any way nor does it chastise any belief, rather, it quietly shows that love and forgiveness can persevere.
I recommend this beautifully written series to anyone who enjoys faith based romantic stories.
After listening to “The White Lord of Wellesbourne” I knew I liked the writing style of Kathryn Le Veque and I had to listen to this second book to find out more about Gaston, the Black Knight.
Ms. LeVeque’s clever way of writing draws you into the story and makes you feel as if you are part of the action—actually feeling the events as they happen and love being there. This epic book has times of pure sadness, times of laughter and times of intense emotion. It's truly and emotional rollercoaster that kept me guessing throughout.
Although I thought the language was a bit modern in places it didn’t take away from how much I enjoyed this book. If you enjoy Medieval historical love stories—put this one on your list!
Its truly wonderful when you find a book that has characters that you love and a story that makes you laugh and cry. This is a touching story of Matthew, a compassionate knight, and Alixandrea, a sweet lady, who are betrothed through an arranged marriage. This beautiful medieval book is filled with history, betrayal, passion, war, jealousy, secrets, loyalty, friendship, grief, and even some humor. It’s got it all.
It took me a while to adjust to the narrator, but he grew on me and overall he was very good.
I highly recommend this book if you enjoy medieval romances. Now, because I have to know Gaston's story, I'm off to listen to Dark One, Dark Knight.
This entertaining novel is a fast paced fun adventure that is a daydream escape for the young at heart.
The “hero” Drake is a dashing anguished Duke who meets the beautiful feisty capable “heroine” Alexandria on board his ship. This charming high sea romance is a bit predictable but is lots of fun. It is truly a feel-good romance that is light on history and high on entertainment.
If you are looking for a fun romantic adventure with great narration…..give this one a try! ;-)
This is my first book by this author and I’m sure it won’t be my last. I have to admit that I started and restarted this book 2 times within the first chapter before I continued further. I think it was the narration, as it took me a while to get into her rhythm of speaking. But, I’m glad I didn’t give up.
Steeped in history, this is a truly gripping story that is filled with heartfelt characters. It is a believable story that deals with family conflicts, revenge, and forgiveness. It moves along at a good pace and definitely holds interest throughout. Both the main characters, Annyn and Garr, have well developed personalities that draw you in to their world. Their romance is engaging, challenging, and so very sweet.
This story has “Christian” elements which gives dimension to the personalities of the main characters. These moral “standards” increased understanding of the character's motivations which added to the believeability within that time period in history.
If you enjoy history, heartfelt strong characters, engaging story, and romance (no detailed sex) then this one is worth a credit. I will definitely be ordering the next in 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.
