the voices of the men in this book were ridiculous... I actually cant work out if the story was terrible or the reading.. but it was practically embarrassing
I possibly would have read this book to the end, the premise of the story was as expected.. nothing amazing, but as expected..
The gruffness of the male parts was stupid, unbelievable and inappropriate. Just nauseating and lame
I didnt waste my time finishing..glad I didnt pay full price for this
Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!
Fairly typical historical romance listen but the narration made up for it. If I figure out the ending by half way through the story that pretty much says it all.
A selfless virgin, a couple of villans, and a broken man who is handsome, rich, titled and in need of rescuing, gives this tale all the ingredients for a great book for romance junkies. Interestingly my grandfather lost two wives in childbirth before his third wife finally made him a father (lucky for me hey!!) so to the sceptics it did happen in the past ..... a lot!
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to more books by Laura.
Yes, however there were a few instances where the narrator erred with characters
Sounds like the plot in Devil's Bride
Strong and Weak
the Duke's emotion took some of the thrill away -- I would like to have seen a little more manly strength
None at this time
Yes, it was enjoyable. I loved a strong herione who does what she needs to. It was lite on the sex scenes which was ok with me!
The fact that a lady -virgin- would pose as a prostitute is outrageous! ok so the fact that she even KNEW a whore ...
She did a fine job!
Half of the book is angst. I've heard it already, again, again, again. Seems like the author didn't have enough story & so repeated the insecurities over & over. I had to fast forward a lot . It does get better toward the end. The only reason I could listen to the whole thing is because I was doing a boring task at the same time.
Basically I could not stand the narrator (personal opinion of course). The male voices were not brilliant and the female voices were very girly and all very similar. I think the book might have been interesting otherwise but I could not keep listening to the narrator. I did not get passed chapter one, unfortunately.
Yes. I have purchased other Laura Landon books and thoroughly enjoyed them.
As mentioed above I found very little difference in each of the female voices and they were very girly which was annoying. The male voices were not that brilliant either. When Coomes was just narrating the story line and thoughts and not doing the actual speech of people her voice was fine. However the speech of people prevented me from enjoying the actual story.
Just couldnt get into the book at all
I don't like to make negative comments but I was very disappointed in he narrator of this book
An interesting premise ruined by poor story-telling. The author basically said the same thing over and over.
She was just okay. Sometimes I couldn't tell who was speaking. Her males voices were weak.
Quite a few. The author went on and on about how the hero was deceived. There was no tension in the story. Even the danger was boring and poorly developed.
I would say pass on this book. It's a total waste of time.
Love to read!
I have no complaints about this book. The characters were likable and the story line had a good pace. The narration was good as well. It might have been a little predictable, but it didn't take away from my enjoyment.
The depth of desperation and the struggle to get out of it became a addiction, a way to lose sleep and irritate the people around you when you can't turn it off. ...
Ug, my least favorite question! Every book should be a entity of its own! But if I had to compare I would say another Laura Landon... I love it when the man in the story has to play second to the heroin yet be such a strong part of the tale. Once more proving the point that this story is unique too.
I really like her narratives! I would say if I HAD to find fault it would be that I usually hear a single female voice that sounds distinctly male. And I don't know why. .. I know that she doesn't need to. .. it's a quirk perhaps. ...
I'm sorry I won't offer up a spoiler. .. I would have to say it is a musical moment....
I encourage you to buy it... but save your credits... it's not worth it when you can buy it so inexpensively. ...
