Publisher's Summary

In this classic romance from New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts, one woman will discover that love has the power to overcome all barriers.

Irish lass Adelia Cunnane had entered a fairy tale! Working at the world-renowned Royal Meadows stables was a dream come true. She was determined to prove her worth, especially to the stables' owner - the very opinionated and ruggedly handsome Travis Grant. Princesses weren't the only ones who could have a happily ever after!

    "Terrible narrator"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Unfortunately, I couldn't even get past the narration of the story to know if I'd like the book. This is something that I'll need to try to read. The narrator sounded like a computer reading the book. It was awful.


    What was most disappointing about Nora Roberts’s story?

    The narrator.


    What didn’t you like about Amy Rubinate’s performance?

    She sounds like a computer reading. There is no expression or emotion. Even when she begins trying to read in an Irish accent, it's just poor.

    "Narrator Style/Voice Not my favorite"

    This is one of my favorite Nora Roberts stories and I have read the book countless times. I wasn't a fan of the Narrator's voice, but it did grow on me a little bit. I would have loved to hear this read by the narrator of the Born In series.

    "The narrator was awful"

    I liked this story. Wished I had read the book instead of listening. Nora Roberts is a fantastic author so I saw the book thru. And I'm glad I did. It's a good story. The narrator hired for this job,however, sounded like a woman of her forties-maybe not a young woman of twenty-three.

    "romance and horses, or vice versa"

    At first, I was put off by the reader. when she changed from the American accent to the Irish, my opinion of her warmed. A horse story and a romance. fun read.
