    The newest novel from #1 New York Times best-selling author and "queen of royal fiction" (USA Today) Philippa Gregory tells the passionate story of Elizabeth of York, daughter of the White Queen, who gets caught in the middle of a battle for the crown of England. A princess from birth, Elizabeth fell in love with Richard III, though her mother made an arranged betrothal for her with the pretender to the throne: Henry Tudor. When Henry defeats Richard against all odds, Elizabeth has to marry the man who murdered her lover in battle.

    What would have made The White Princess better?

    If the princess knew something


    Would you ever listen to anything by Philippa Gregory again?

    I have read and listened to her other titles, this has to be here worst.


    Any additional comments?

    I didn't like this story, the princess was so useless, couldn't do much, didn't know much, was so frustrating, and yet she was so emotional, over analyzing and judgmental.

    Jamie Fraser knows from his time-traveling wife Claire that, no matter how unlikely it seems, America will win the Revolutionary War. But that truth offers little solace, since Jamie realizes he might find himself pointing a weapon directly at his own son - a young officer in the British army. And Jamie isn't the only one with a tormented soul - for Claire may know who wins the conflict, but she certainly doesn't know whether or not her beloved Jamie survives.

    Set in the intriguing Scotland of 200 years ago, the third installment in the romantic adventures of Jamie and Claire is as compelling as the first. Now that Claire knows Jamie survived the slaughter at Culloden, she is faced with the most difficult decision of her life. She aches to travel back through time again to find the love of her life, but, in order to do that, she must leave their daughter behind.

    Would you listen to Voyager again? Why?

    I would listen because I like the language and writing, and I may still do, but It is a long story and I already know it so it may be boring to listen to again


    Have you listened to any of Davina Porter’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes the other books in this series, I really like the ways she performs the story, she puts in a great effort, is consistent and there is a lot of life in the performance


    If you could take any character from Voyager out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Jamie Frazer of course, who else

    Why we think it’s a great listen: An all-time Audible favorite that mixes historic fiction, adventure, and romance with one of the most fascinating literary devices: time travel. Outlander introduces an exhilarating world of heroism and breathtaking thrills as one woman is torn between past and present, passion and love. In 1945, former combat nurse Claire Randall returns from World War II and joins her husband for a second honeymoon. But their blissful reunion is shattered....

    What did you like best about Outlander? What did you like least?

    It is a refreshingly different story


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Other than Jamie, my favorite character was Dogle, such a unpredictable person


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The wedding of Jaime and Clair


    Could you see Outlander being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    totally, couldn't tell, many people could play Clair but Jamie would be difficult ,


    Any additional comments?

    Lovely story of love, mystery and courage

    New York Times best-selling author Diana Gabaldon enchanted scores of fans with Outlander, her electrifying historical saga set in 18th-century Scotland. Now this sequel sweeps listeners back into the past as Claire relates more of her perilous sojourn there with her Scottish warrior husband, James Fraser. Twenty years after her strange journey back in time, Claire has returned to Scotland with her daughter, determined to share with her the secret she has harbored since her time travel.

    What about Davina Porter’s performance did you like?

    love the performance, accents and life she gives to the story, The only thing I didn't like was the way Clair says Jamieeee, hated that bit


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I have to Say that Clair is funny, in so far that she falls when she must not, goes where she should not and been told not to, loses her voice when she should scream or say something, she is an annoying person, I would find her annoying, and at times just so very unreasonable. Still she is right other times,

    They meet in a clash of swords, drenched in the moonlight of Britain's rugged eastern coast: Captain Jack, his handsome features etched in silver and shadow, his powerful physique compelling "Kit" Cranmer to surrender. He is her dream lover come vividly alive, and his command of the smuggling gang is absolute. His all-knowing gaze penetrates her disguise as the male leader of a rival gang with frightening ease, and his "punishment" with kisses leaves her maidenly modesty in tatters.

    Sebastian Ballister, the notorious Marquess of Dain, is big, bad, and dangerous to know. No respectable woman would have anything to do with the "Bane and Blight of the Ballisters", and he wants nothing to do with respectable women. He's determined to continue doing what he does best - sin and sin again - and all's going swimmingly…until the day a shop door opens and she walks in.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I wouldn't recommend it,


    What could Loretta Chase have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    She could have developed the caractors a bit better and actually have them act more consistently, the change in them was way too fast and the story was wrapped up too quick.


    Have you listened to any of Kate Reading’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no


    Did Lord of Scoundrels inspire you to do anything?

    no
