To much sex for me and this stupid woman went from being controlled to being controlled. This time she likes it all. I had hi hopes when I read the description. But this story was about nothing more then a willing sex slave. I couldn't finish it.
Usually I listen to the whole book before writing a review but I only made 3 hours on this one. The heroine and the hero I did not like. If explicit sexually scene fits a developed story line then I find a well written scene suitable but gratuitously instead of characters and plot it is boorish. No more Eliza Knight for me. I have over 1000 audible books in multiple
genres this book is one of the few (less than 6) I have not finished. Really terrible. Despite the use of two narrators .
One of the most irritating voices I've encountered on an audiobook. The sound actually made my heart palpitate. I bet the story was good, but unless I get it on e book I will never know.
Could have been a good story but I'm not into porn. Won't listen to this author again. Maybe add a disclaimer so readers looking for time travel romance don't waste money or credits on graphic sexual stories they didn't want or expect.
I love Highlander time travel romance, but I'd give this one a miss if you're not into erotica. I didn't realize that was the basic theme - his and her first person perspective narration. Lots of increasingly hot and interesting sex interspersed with a vague plot. Not really my type.
The audio performance was done very well. The only thing that really kept me going, truth be told. Not planning to finish the series.
Total waste of a credit. I kept waiting for the story to get better but it never did. There was barely any plot and barely any character development. I would return it but I finished the listen thinking that it must get better soon and then it was over.
I really didn't like this book. I really regret wasting a credit on it. I think the story line could have been so much better. I struggled to finish this book, as it was dry. I hated the main character because she annoyed me. The narration was not the worst I've heard, but it could have been better. If I could have RATED this with no stars I would have.
Say something about yourself!
If the friend really loved to read about hot sex scenes then yes... but, I would definitely not recommend this to readers that are use to "tame" love scenes in some romance novels.
I would have to compare it to any of author Brenda Jackson's books. Why not a specific book? There are many "Highland" themes to choose from & I cannot make a definite choice because I think I would have loved this book more if we saw Emma and Logan's relationship build & develop out of the bedroom too.
LOVED THE NARRATORS!!!! Excellent scottish brog by Antony Ferguson! BOTH narrators kept me listening- even through the screams, groans, moans,anddddddddd lol you get the picture.

This is my 1st review. I felt I needed to warn some of you as I rely on reviews when I am unsure about certain books.I value those reviews & I have seen many that summarize the story and relate the ending. No problem with that here ( the main reason I decided to write this) b/c as I was listening to the book I suddenly hear "this has been an Audio production... WTH? I looked at my IPOD & sure enough it had ended. I looked the book up on another site & that is when I read there are 3 books in the series and we will hear more about Emma & Logan as the series continues. Hopefully, Audible will add books 2 & 3 ASAP!
MY OTHER VALID REASON FOR THIS REVIEW IS THAT IF YOU ARE LIKE ME I LISTEN TO MY AUDIO BOOKS IN THE CAR, WHILE AT WORK ON MY LUNCH HOUR, WHILE WORKING IN MY GARAGE/PATIO/HOUSE... PRETTY MUCH EVERYWHERE B/C I LOVE TO "READ"! THIS IS ONE OF THOSE AUDIO BOOKS THAT YOU SHOULD ONLY BE LISTENING TO W/ HEADPHONES (turned down of course), & NOT CRANKED UP ON YOUR CAR STEREO or YOUR SURROUND SOUND SPEAKERS LOCATED IN THE CEILING AT WORK DURING LUNCH (especially if you are a high school teacher like I am lol). YIKES! :o
Different...that's all I can say. A mid-evil 50 Shades!! Hmmm...
I did, however, enjoy the dual narration. I would like to hear more of that in audio books.
I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
I happen to like this author and I have enjoyed other books that are part of her Stolen Bride series, but those books pretty much are stand alone and you can enjoy them without reading any others, but this one you cannot. I was intrigued by the time travel aspect of this story and was looking forward to a good read, but after about the first few chapters it became kind of boring. Most of the book was about sex, which is not all bad but I read Highlander romance books for the rich history, colorful descriptions of every day life, and the intense conflict that the warrior aspect brings to the story. I never got that breathless anticipation with this book and we are just left hanging at the end. You have no choice but to buy the next two books in order to know what happens to Emma and Logan. We are given a synopsis of each book at the end of this one and if had read those to start with I probably would have rethought my purchase of this book. It's not a bad story, but it's not her best.
Antony Ferguson was fantasic and should have narrated the whole book. Arika Rapson sounded like my mother trying to sound sexy - creepy.
