Publisher's Summary

A captivating romance from the New York Times best-selling author of Remembrance.

Deveraux transports us from modern-day Virginia to the high mountain deserts of 1873 Colorado, with a vibrant new tale about a feisty lady and the man she was meant to love.

Petite Kady Long, a celebrated chef about to be married to a gorgeous man, felt she was the luckiest woman alive. But when she tried on an antique satin wedding dress, she was overcome with dizziness.

When she opened her eyes, Kady was in the harsh, sunlit landscape of 1873 Legend, Colorado. There, she meets Cole Jordan, a tall, rangy, and very appealing man. But while Kady is anxious to return to her time, Cole has other ideas...i deas that could give him and the inhabitants of Legend what they so desperately need - a future.

©1999 Jude Deveraux (P)2011 Simon & Schuster

    I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again

    "CAGA-UK"

    This is the first time I have been compelled to write a review because I loved this audio book so much. It was funny, romantic and sad and it left me completely drained. I listened to it virtually non-stop because I had to know the ending. This is the first, but not the last, Jude Deveraux book iv'e listened to and I'm looking forward to listening to many more. I have eclectic taste in books, from Christine Feehan, Christina Dodd, Brenda Joyce, Megan Hart, Nora Roberts,Kerrelyn Sparks and Johanna Lindsey.

    In my opinion, this book is well worth the credit.

    Story
    "Not worth the read or the listen."
    Would you try another book from Jude Deveraux and/or C. J. Critt?

    Not likely


    Has Legend turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    Would you be willing to try another one of C. J. Critt’s performances?

    NO


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Legend?

    Most of them.


    Any additional comments?

    The story is juvenile, not true to the periods (clash of language and slang). The dialog is just plain stupid. The story drags on and on and really didn't make me want to rush to my car to listen every commute. The performance is weak. The narrator doesn't have a good command of male vs. female voices and Cole sounded like a light footed, limp wristed wimp.

    "AWFUL!!"

    I have always enjoyed Jude Deveraux stories, however, the narrator of this book is terrible. She has ruined the story and makes it unbearable to listen to. : (

    "Legend"

    This is the second Jude Deveraux book I have purchased on Audio. Did not enjoy this one compared to Days of Gold. Quality of the download was poor, first time I have ever gotten background noice on the audio. I have a libray of over 20 books and do not have this issue with any other book. Was distracted by the narrator of the book and I felt it took a long time to develop the story.

    Story
    "It was okay."

    I have this in hardcover -- I bought it and read it when it first came out. I loved the story just as much as then, but wasn't thrilled with the narrator. I envisioned 30 year old Katie with a younger, perkier, more innocent sounding voice. While C.J. Critt does a great job, her voice just sounds far too old and too refined, like some glamorous movie star from the 40s or something. It just didn't fit the character. Therefore, I didn't like the audio as much.

    "Another great Deveraux story"

    I loved the many twists and turns of the plot in this story. Just who you thought it would be over there was more.
    Took me a while to warm up to the narrator. It constantly sounded like someone else talking in the background too which was annoying.

    "Wonderful"

    I love a book that allows you to laugh, and not have too much sex in it.

    I'm an avid audiobook listener. I love romance novels, occasion fiction, and rarely sci-Fi.

    "Such a Disappointment. :("
    Would you ever listen to anything by Jude Deveraux again?

    I love her books. I wish Audible carried more of her books. This is the first one I didn't like.

    "Could not finish."

    I actually loved the book, but the audible version was not good. The narrator is awful. Her voices of the different characters are unbelievable and comical at times. I finally had to turn it off.
