Publisher's Summary

Ruby de Burgh is the first born of the four daughters of Earl Blackpool. They were all named after the stones in daggers, bought by their late mother regarding a superstition. Ruby acts more like the son her father always wanted - nothing like a lady. And she is not pleased to find out her father has promised Lord Sheffield his choice of one of his daughter's hands in marriage.

Lord Nyle of Sheffield needs a wife so he can carry on his secret mission for the king. However, after losing three wives in a matter of months, he is sure their deaths were not accidents as it seemed, but rather they were murdered. Now to catch the murderer that he believes to be inside his castle walls, he chooses a wife as bait who he knows can wield a sword and hold her own against any attacker.

Will murder and mayhem place a wedge between an unconventional wife and the lord of death, or bring them closer together as emotions are brought to the surface?

    My favorite books are 'Historical Romance'. A good book takes you away from your everyday life & puts you in the middle of an adventure.

    "Great story. Spunky & fun leading lady."

    Author Elizabeth Rose writes a very fun romance with her story of Ruby. Ruby is her father's daughter. She knows how to shoot a bow, but not how to sew. Ruby is spunky and vibrant and a little rebellious. One day she is practicing her rambunctious skills as a secret warrior and the next thing she knows, her father agrees to a marriage, leaving Ruby stunned and speechless. What an exciting, fun, romantic and fascinating story. Keeps your attention from the beginning. An absolute must read. I loved it.
    Narrator Stan Chandler delivers a nice performance. I'd like to see him become more diverse in his character voices, as well as perfect the voices of female characters. But still a nice performance,

    Story
    "Murder and Mystery"
    Would you listen to Ruby again? Why?

    Ruby Daughters of the Dagger is the first book in the first book by Elizabeth Rose I’ve read and the first in this medieval series. I wasn't disappointed. Ruby de Burgh is the first born of the four daughters of Earl Blackpool. Because of their mother’s superstition they were all named after the stones in daggers.
    The first Daughter of the Dagger meets her match in the Lord of Death. There is a murder, mystery and humor that make for a great read. Ruby our heroine is a strong willed lady who acts more like a son than a daughter, she knows how to handle a sword and takes action when needed. I loved watching her bring the hero to heel and seeing her transformed by love. Our hero Lord Nyle of Sheffield is promised one of Earl Blackpool’s daughter’s; he needs a wife and wants one who can protect herself. Nyle needs a wife and so far he has lost the three he has had and is now running out of time. He intends to keep the next one and find the murder as well who he thinks lives within his castle. I loved Nyle and Ruby’s story of good versus evil and how two incredibly strong willed people learning to trust each other and finding their HEA.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved this audiobook the story comes to life with the narrator's voice.

    What did you love best about Ruby?

    I love The strong, Independent, individual, Ruby is, along with her strong talents.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoy the little bit of mystery, and how different Ruby and Nyle are..or are they? I feel the author did a great job with all of the characters.


    What does Stan Chandler bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love the narration of Stan Chandler, He makes the novel come alive. And being an audio book is great, one can multi task.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES! Would love to listen to it all in one sitting, however time would not allow it was very difficult to put down.


    Any additional comments?

    Story
    "Painful"

    Let's start with the narrator. He is excellent, having this very Camelot voice. Great at speaking in different voices, women included. The problem is that he's a terrible fit for a romance and a much better fit for something more…epic.

    As for the story, it's a good plot, but it has a major mystery at the heart of it, and the way it unfolds is just painful. Instead being peppered with clues, this book pounds the obvious at the listener while the players are moronically oblivious. It's like the story describes a room full of main characters and an elephant hiding behind an office plant. And the people in the room keep looking around, talking about how something is off, and how they wish they knew what it was, and how weird that office plant looks, and maybe they should go investigate, but hell, let's go do this other thing for now. That's 90% of the book. To the listener, the secret is obvious and the protagonists are acting irrationally. It's deeply frustrating. I waded through the book certain that the elephant wasn't it. That maybe there was another elephant, and this was all distraction to the mystery, but no. At the end, the elephant introduces himself, the main characters gasp in shock and awe, slapping their foreheads over how they didn't notice it, and I am equally shocked as them that I listed to the whole thing.

    What does Stan Chandler bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Life


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Five Daggers, Four Daughters, One Lost Son, will they find them in time to live happily ever after


    Any additional comments?

    This book is awesome I got it from Elizabeth and I loved every bit of it. I fell for these daughters during the prequel and couldn't wait to read and listen to their own stories on how they found their daggers and their HEAs. Ruby doesn't disappoint. I loved every bit of it.
