I have no idea.
It was an awkward story and I couldn't get interested in it. It was actually painful to finish.
The Queen. Her appearance was unnecessary.
I was surprised this was a Milan book.
I couldn't put this down. Once I got over the confusion of Maggie and Margaret and Peggy the book was a delightful, although sad, story. I was teary in Chapter 3 before they ever got on the Titanic. Seamus and his letters! I'm glad this wasn't a re-telling of James Cameron's movie (which was not as good as earlier movies) and was instead the tale of a group of friends from a small Irish village. My grandparents left Ireland at about the same time so I was very moved by the story. I usually don't like audiobooks with multiple narrators but this worked well to differentiate the change in time and POV. The ending was a bit predictable (there were subtle clues) but I enjoyed this very much.
I wasn't sure I was going to like this. I've read the Lady Darby series by Anna Lee Huber so the idea of anatomists was pretty familiar. This is a much different take on that and it worked. Although I pretty much guessed what would happen and wasn't surprised by events this was an enjoyable book. It take take a few chapters for me to really "get into it." The narration was quite good. This is my first Brenda Novak book (I don't care for contemporary romances) but I'll look into her other historicals.
I did like this book but it's Eloisa James so of course I liked it. It was a fun read and the characters were interesting. I couldn't give it 5 stars for a couple of reasons. The first one is not the author's fault. Susan Duerden's reading of Sophie's voice was just too breathless- too childish. Secondly, the entire subplot of the trip to Turkey and the "gift" Patrick was being asked to bring just didn't fit and it was resolved so quickly that I had to go back and listen to that part again. Quite a throw-away ending after all the time spent on that part of the story. Also, so many romance stories involve keeping secrets and lack of communication. I guess that makes the conflict but it's quite ubiquitous in this genre. That being said, I liked this and I'm anxious for the third book in this series to be available in audiobook format.
First of all, Kate Reading does a fabulous job with the narration of the audiobook. Other than one not-so-good book I have truly enjoyed Loretta Chase's romances. This one is another good one! I do have a problem when I hear the Dowager's language. I'm sure the author researched this but it's like fingernails on a blackboard to me. I had a bit of a issue trying to keep track of some of the characters but it all worked out. I didn't want this to end. Great book!
I like protagonists who aren't perfect and Dain is far from perfect. This book is clever, witty, touching, and fun. I really like Loretta Chase's writing style; this is one of her best! And Kate Reading does an amazing job with her narration.
Ugh! This was difficult to read and difficult to review. It was just odd. This is the second book by this author that I've read and I haven't been impressed so far.
I loved this! Sure, it's not a typical Regency romance. In fact, I'd call it an adventure with romance thrown in. I was almost afraid to read this based on reviews but, unless you're looking for sprigged muslin, ribboned bonnets, and dances at Almack's, this was a great story. Good guys, bad guys, English Lords, and foreign travel. And I loved Percival. What a cute kid. Kate Reading does her usual good job with the narration. Really enjoyed this.
This book was missing what I've come to love in Loretta Chase's books - the witty banter. Yes, there was a tiny bit of it toward the end but I found this book tedious to reach that end. The story never grabbed me. The characters, frankly, annoyed me. The audio quality was poor although the narration was quite good (and I am thankful it WAS available as an audiobook.) Not my favorite Chase book but I still really enjoy her work.
Fabulous! A book has got to be very special for me to give it 5 stars. A HEARTLESS DESIGN drew me in from the beginning and was great until the end. I loved it! Cordelia is a strong woman with skills that she has to hide from everyone. Sebastian is a hunky hero and I enjoyed their interaction. Like in many stories, secrets play a big part in this book. The audiobook was very well done and Elizabeth Cole has a great new series. Now if the subsequent releases were only available in audio format.
This was an okay book. The narration was great but it's Roslyn Landor and she's always fantastic. The chemistry between the two main characters was not strong in my opinion. It was okay but nothing that jumped out at me. That's how I felt about the whole book. There's nothing really bad with it but it didn't grab me. I look forward to reading the next one in the series. This ending teased the subsequent book and it could be quite interesting.
