Say something about yourself! I am visually impaired, and was very hesitant about downloading audible books initally. Now I LOVE it!!
I enjoyed this Linda Howard tale. It moved along at a good pace and concluded in a timely manner. I had a little trouble when the story took a "woo woo" turn, but others of her books have included a touch of the supernatural, and ultimately it worked!
I'd give this a 3 star for the first half and 4 star for the second. Started out slow, repeating thoughts but improved with length.
I have enjoyed lots of Linda Howard novels. This one was sadly disappointing. The leading lady, Annie, bucked the trend, showing an independent, strong will, to become a doctor in the wild, wild West. However, when Rafe comes along, she turns into a meek, frightened, uncertain (fill in the appropriate synonymous-adjective) sissy. It would have been a much better story if Annie had stayed true to her character throughout. The narrator was fine, but not outstanding. I may be judging her a little on her material, though.
Not sure this has the qualities of a 4 or 5 star book. The story, characters, and even the setting were unexciting.
The plot of this story was just so simple. The characters were not believable.
Yes - it was well read, but there were some parts of the story that were a bit over-acted.
It's not the lonesome Dove saga, however, it is a good 19th century American romance. I'm so tired of the Regency era, I could just explode.
Yessir. I didn't have to hear about Bathe or Whitehall and there were no Lords or Ladies.
Yep. Pretty good.
Oh bother, "The doctor and the outlaw." I have no idea. Now if this was a regency novel it would be, "I have no idear".
Please, let's not all be juvenile and correct my errors. Seriously, this is one I like.
Natalie Ross is a great narrator, and the story line had potential upon reading the plot summery but that's about where it ends. The author just drabs on and on and on. This is not a love story that makes you swoon, it's a love story that makes you want to bang your head against a wall until rendered unconscious.
The last half of the book picks up a bit, but not enough for me to ever recommend it.
To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.
Rafe and Anne had an adventure. Rafe was set up and chased across the country by bounty hunters, a U.S. Marshall and a private army by one of the rich men in the country at that time. The papers Rafe has hidden could be a potential historical game changer, and silencing him was the only sure way to protect one of the richest, most influential man in American History. Injured Rafe kidnaps Anne to tend his wounds and decides to keep her. The adventure begins, they are hunted, chased, and walk into an Indian Camp that is plagued with a deadly measles outbreak. I thoroughly enjoyed this story, it was a great read, had some hot, steamy sexual scenes, and of course action. I gave it 5 stars because the story kept my interest, and the wonderful narration by the talented Natalie Ross, kept me riveted. Yes she was dramatic in some areas, maybe a lil bit too much, however it certainly made my heart race.
Yes, it had it up and downs with actual history added in.
At the end, you wanted to see justice and the good guy come out clean.
No this is the first time, so I have nothing to compare it to from her other performances.
Yes, you wanted to know who Rafe could trust to bring the truth to light
I gave up after 4 plus hours. The greater part of this time involved the seduction of a doctor by her kidnapper who also happens to be a murderer. The story totally fell by the wayside. Sex alone does not make a story.
