Hard and Fast

Major Geoffrey Chaloner has returned, relatively unscathed, from the Napoleonic War, and England is at peace for the first time in years. Unable to set up his own establishment, he is forced to live with his irascible father who has very clear views on just about everything-including exactly whom Geoffrey will marry and why. The trouble is that Geoffrey isn’t particularly keen on the idea, and even less so when he meets Adam Heyward, the enigmatic cousin of the lady his father has picked out for him….

Publisher's Summary

Major Geoffrey Chaloner has returned, relatively unscathed, from the Napoleonic War, and England is at peace for the first time in years. Unable to set up his own establishment, he is forced to live with his irascible father who has very clear views on just about everything - including exactly whom Geoffrey will marry and why. The trouble is that Geoffrey isn’t particularly keen on the idea, and even less so when he meets Adam Heyward, the enigmatic cousin of the lady his father has picked out for him….

As Geoffrey says himself: “I have never been taught what I should do if I fell in love with someone of a sex that was not, as I expected it would be, opposite to my own.”

    "I couldn't put it down!"
    Where does Hard and Fast rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's VERY well written. It could have been fleshed out a bit more. Maybe a few more encounters before the final scene. Who knows but VERY enjoyable.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    It wasn't a huge shocker but I kinda wished for all unanswered questions getting tied up. But I liked the ending a lot.


    What about Jim Bowie’s performance did you like?

    Jim Bowie has gotten BETTER. MUCH better at narration. To be honest, the first book I heard from him, he was stiff. I couldn't tell who the characters were, but I still liked his style. I wouldn't hesitate to buy an audio book with his name on it. But now, with this vast improvement, I will definitely buy titles with him. The reading was very moving. I'm pleased to see the vast improvement.


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

    I really like Adam. I think this character is rather complex and could be more interesting if fleshed out.


    Any additional comments?

    This was an enjoyable read and although I did choose it because it was short, rest assured, it packed a punch. I don't know why the reviews were so low. The old fashioned way of talking was surprising at first but it fits very well. I really want to see more from this author! I am a fan!!!

    "Why so many good reviews.. so boring"

    This was so boring. I couldn't even get past chapter 1. I don't see how this got so many good reviews here. I was really really bored. This is not a buy, credit or sale. I will try again...but for now this is a big no...
