    "About Average"

    I was disappointed with the weak female lead - sounded a bit whiney,self-centered, and immature. It's hard to empathize or relate to a young female lead who is narrowly focused. It didn't help that the reader made her sound weak, fluffy, and flat. I did like his deep baratone rendition of the male lead's voice, although his dialogue was read very slowly and had a flat aspect or monotone to it also. The author had the male lead often reconsidering his decisions and changing his mind on things he had said. Lots of repetition. The best parts are the training for battle scenes in my opinion.

    "Highlander Sex"
    What did you like best about The Chief? What did you like least?

    The time period and Scot history.


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

    No I like historical romance but I like more detail about the life style and less detail sex. The day to day life and specifics such as food prep etc.


    Which character – as performed by Robert McNab – was your favorite?

    The heroine of course.


    Do you think The Chief needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, been done


    Any additional comments?

    For the price it was nice to knit to. I like light predictable when I am doing a project. It is more like company.

    "More "Little Death" than actual death..."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Those who do not really want historical fiction, but prefer romance novels with a lot of redundant sex.


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

    YES!!! In the future we will check further before paying for a book that is falsely advertised.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Not sounded like Sean Connery when speaking for the hero, and not sounding like Mrs. Doubtfire when speaking for the heroine.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Gave my husband a woodie...


    Any additional comments?

    Complete, pearly white dribble (pun intended). Not worth our time. Should NOT be in category
