Publisher's Summary

Can two outcasts find refuge in one another's hearts? Dr. Vance Phelps lost everything in the War Between the States - her career and her faith in herself. Mae is a frontier madam, used to standing and fighting alone. She guards the well-being of the lost young women who come under her care - she just never expected one of them to be a doctor. A bold story of redemption amidst the wild landscape of the heart, where lost promises find new hope.

    Story
    "Great Sequel To A Great Book"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. I read Promising Heart a while ago and was hoping that it'll go to audio. I wasn't disappointed.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The love between Mae and Vance and Jessie and Kate. I also was happy to see that Kate's mother finally accepted her and Jessie's love for each other.


    What about Lori Prince’s performance did you like?

    She was good, but I had to speed up the pace a bit because her reading was a bit slow.


    Who was the most memorable character of Promising Hearts and why?

    Mae. She was always my favorite character. I just wish there was more of a back story on her.


    Any additional comments?

    A good story with some good narration. I hope that Radcylffe would write more like this. I am tired of the same old same and something fresh and new would be nice.

    Any additional comments?

    Excellent Book. I can't say that enough. GREAT story in the history genre. The quality of the audio seems more technical, rather than the narrator. I think Lori Prince does a good job. But the audio itself is a little annoying.

    "Entertaining story Bad sound"

    The story was entertaining until the end. The ending seemed like Radclyffe became sick of writing and ended it quickly.
    My issue with the audiobook was the poor sound. It sounded like the narrator was either in a tunnel or speaking in a cone. The echo was irritating

    Story
    "A proper indulgence"

    Beautifully written, richly detailed prose full of well-drawn and utterly unbelievable characters that are capable of provoking the most extreme of emotions in the listener. The narrator read fantastically well and managed to add something to the story rather than detract from it (as is so often the case). Radclyffe always does a 'proper job', and has yet to disappoint in all the years I've been reading/listening. One thing though, I've pondered my own 'alleyway' scene with Hanrahan that I find much more satisfying...
