    "Pretty good"

    I liked the main guy but the girl was sometimes just too dumb in many cases. The narrator was great tho!! 2 thumbs up!

    Story
    "Highland Masculinity defined"

    The story had a very slow start and I almost stopped reading it. However I gave it another chance which the story began to move. The Highland Hero, and the Lass come together and apart throughout the story. I will go on to read the next book in this series.

    Story
    "ughhhh"
    What disappointed you about The Chief?

    The female lead was just too stupid to live. It had potential with the other characters but
    could not even finish the book.


    Has The Chief turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no - just this writer


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    ridiculous

    "I will read but not listen"

    I like the description of this book, but having an English narrator was too much. I did had to rate the book because I have yet read it I am not sure what my rating will be. I gave a three not to discourage others who do not share my opinion I do not think a book about the Scottish battles against the English should be narrated by someone with an English accent.

    "It was ok"

    The story would have played better in my head if I had read instead. Narration was . . . very stiff. Sorry, he has a beautiful masculine voice but he wasn't into the characters so I couldn't get there either.

    Story
    "Didn't enjoy it..."

    I wish I had listened to the other reviews that cited problems. The narrator had a pleasant voice, but he read so slowly I had to double the play speed. And imagine your grandfather reading you a story about girly fantasies and sexy times. Umm, yeah... Made me uncomfortable.

    The heroine became annoying because after being with the hero for 5 minutes, she expected him to change. One could see the crisis and climax coming from a mile away.

    When I start rolling my eyes and talking back to my iPod, I know it's not going to be a keeper.

    "Good story"

    I enjoyed the story, predictable at times but overall entertaining. I like the bigger story this book set up, I have a feeling next books will get better now that groundwork is laid. I enjoy this historical time period and fiction based on this time. Although this is "romance" and heavily so, I also enjoyed the fight scenes and political maneuvering story lines. I think the narrator does a good job with all the voices and I'm sure it takes some talent to swing from narrating between 2 types of sword thrusting.

    Story
    "ruined by outlander. ."

    The story's ok.. Yes just ok. I love Scottish books, But i guess ive been ruined by outlander.
    I also don't like the narrator, I thought he should've had a Scottish accent, maybe thats just me, the main characters 31 and he makes him sound like a bitter old man, a highlander with no accent, wth..

    Story
    "Enjoyed the story, hated the narrator."

    The story was enjoyable, I was not sorry to have bought the book w/audio. But this is a case of a terrible narrator. There were many pauses, long pauses, where there shouldn't have been any. His female lead sounded whiney and the male lead's voice was NOT sexy, This is unfortunate in a romance book. Nor was he even trying for a Scots accent, so I'm not sure why he was hired for these books. I've heard some really sexy, deep voiced narrators who had great Scottish and Irish accents in other books, but not this dude.
