    "Gag!"

    I really really don't understand all the wonderful reviews for this book! First of all I've never read a worse case of insta love and to make matters worse it occurs after the h/h have like a five minute conversation while the heroine is still a child. The first two chapters are basically spent listening to the hero express his disenchantment at the entire human race except for this one child (the heroine), whom he reminisces about with nauseating sentimentality even though he has only spent one fairly unremarkable hour with her three years ago. The third chapter sees our love birds reunited which means we now not only get to hear the hero's vomit inducing contemplations of the heroines attractiveness but we also get to hear the heroine rhapsodise about her deep emotional connection to the hero every two sentences. Chapter three finally concludes with the heroine declaring to herself that she is in love with the hero... whom she has spoken approximately ten sentences to over the entire hour and a half of their acquaintance. I didn't bother torturing myself any further with this one.

    "Romantic Historical Mystery!"

    A romantic historical mystery is definately more like it!! Definately a dream holding a nightmare... literally!!!
    This nightmare driven love story is great! I was surprised at how quickly the time passed.... it was well written, excellently performed and contained so much mystery, so many twists and turns, so much treachery and such extremes of heart wrenching emotion, that I was thoroughly entertained and wanted nothing more than to be left alone to listen. Can't say better then that I guess.

    CREDIT worthy, YES!!!

    HEAT factor.... 4!

    "Dream Historical Romance with Stunning Naration"
    Any additional comments?

    This was a great listen! I was moved by the love story. It was made particularly enjoyable thanks to the impressive narrator . She captured the essence of the characters and mood of the piece extraordinarily well.

    Story
    "Sensational book by Andrea Kane! Beautifully Acted"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes! This book has it all: Tantalizing romance (in great detail), mystery, suspense, complex believable characters and an unexpected twist at the end. Ms. Kane is a master of historical romance. This story was impressively acted by Gemma Dawson. I seek out her performances as she is not your average narrator; she passionately acts the story out in a way that truly and uniquely brings it to life. Some prefer a flatter more neutral read- I do not. I think that such compelling and emotionally stirring stories are enhanced by a passionate and realistic performance.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Everything! I loved the setting, not just the historical back-drop but the mystical element of nature that permeated the story and in a way defined the characters. Kassandra is a wonderful heroine, displaying such maturity and strength for a girl who has suffered though such extreme abuse and isolation. The scenes with her father are heartbreaking, as he attacks her in fits of alcohol induced rage, but Kassie endures and finds her strength and safety in Braden. I love the supporting characters as well, they were wonderfully drawn; the shrill and bitchy Abigail Devon, the ever present support of Charles, the bumbling Percy... they all beautifully contributed to Ms. Kane's intricate tapestry and all were voiced with versatility, flair and conviction by Ms. Dawson.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I don't want to ruin any of the mystery so I shall say the opening scene where Braden is captivated by a young and sassy Kassandra on the beach. Also the scene in which the catty, whiny and entitled Ms Abigail Devon confronts Braden and is sharply shot down in a very humorous and cutting manner. Ms. Kane does a lovely job of capturing what we think of as 'British wit' in the scene.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was moved by the sadness of Kassie's life before she met Braden, and the love she goes on to experience for the first time after he comes back into her life. Her leap of faith when she goes to him desperately in her time of need- her vulnerability is so perfectly captured. I was also moved by the notion of such a powerful and enduring love, lasting in their minds and hearts for so many years after their first meeting.


    Any additional comments?

    I can't wait for the next one (I read that this is a trilogy!). I am looking forward to seeing how Kassie and Braden's story progresses and delighting in every minute once again thanks to Gemma Dawson's ever stunning voice and Andrea Kane's masterful story telling.

    "Horrible narration!!!"

    Once upon a time I loved this long time keeper and was eager to give a listen. Well, I did - forced myself to stick with it for the sake of the story. I can't begin to express how awful the ear piercing, shrieking and unbelievably stupid narration. No one talks like this! I'd rather hear cavemen grunt.
