    "Captivating!"

    Not your typical historical romance, this story has strong, passionate characters filled conviction about their beliefs. When the love story didn't unfold as planned I was stunned, but didn't lose interest in the story. The author wove a compelling storyline into historical fact and that added to the story's captivating effect. I highly recommend this to fans of Jo Beverly and Linda Needham whose historical romances tend to have more "weight" than most.

    "Enjoyable"

    I liked this book...did not LOVE but liked it very much. I did not like certain parts (cant give anything away so dont want to be specific)..but you knew there was still a happy ending to come, there always is. I like the length but felt the story was a little drawn out over a long period of time...Overall, a good buy and as always i like the narrator..i have read reviews where some do not but i like her.

    "Just O.K."

    Just Ok....I prefer historical romances with more action and adventure, villains, and strong women who aren't afraid to stand up to there man and are hard to catch. This book didn't have an exciting, adventurous story. Additionally, the author has a tendency to repeat the same exact thing over and over and over again and it started to irritate me.

    Story
    "main characters were too busy, too much jump aroun"
    What disappointed you about Infamous?

    Too much confusion too early for these characters


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Lee Child's book (Bad Luck) was excellence, maybe I'll listen to something of his, again. I'm a romantic, at heart, but I love detective, fbi, cia stuff, lately or David Balducci.


    How could the performance have been better?

    To have let the main character stand out more


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

    Disappointment because I was looking forward reading Henley again. Back in the early 90sI'd like her story telling.


    Any additional comments?

    I really love my Kindle Fire and what I love most is "Audible.com" because there are times when I can't sit and read, but I can listen out loud or use my headphone. I LOVE AUDIBLEBOOKS.

    "Too Drawn Out"
    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    anti climatic


    What three words best describe Jenny Sterlin???s voice?

    precise, authentic, varied


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    Less wordy with description and background events


    Any additional comments?

    The story has potential but found myself fast forwarding 1/3 the way through the second part.

    "I loved it!"

    when i read the reviews i was reluctant to purchase this audiobook. However it was an epic story!
    A rich historical story . If there is inaccuracies , well it is fiction. There is also sensual and sweet romance. The Narrator's voice even lulled my little shih tzus, they wagged their tales when I played the audio!

    "kept me fixed to keep listening or reading"

    This book was well written and had the ability to keep my interest peaked and even if the steamy chapters weren't written in the story line the story was interesting and had me captivated. If I don't have to work hard at imagining being the people described in the story , I'm all over it. This was that well written. I just wish she would write a 48 hour novel...(over 100 chapters) lolK

    "LOVED THIS"

    WOW I laugh and cried and I have to admit I blushed a little during some of the love scenes. I have listed to this twice already! Must Listen

    "Infamous"

    I seem to have a really hard time getting into this book I don't know if its the narrator that is reading it or what. I think I would enjoy this more if I read it instead.
