Publisher's Summary

Number-one New York Times best-selling author returns with another thrilling story from the Casebook of Barnaby Adair…

Miraculously spared from death, Malcolm Sinclair erases the notorious man he once was. Reinventing himself as Thomas Glendower, he strives to make amends for his past, yet he never imagines penance might come via a secretive lady he discovers living in his secluded manor.

Rose has a plausible explanation for why she and her children are residing in Thomas's house, but she quickly realizes he's far too intelligent to fool. Revealing the truth is impossibly dangerous, yet day by day he wins her trust, and then her heart.

But then her enemy closes in, and Rose turns to Thomas as the only man who can protect her and the children. And when she asks for his help, Thomas finally understands his true purpose, and with unwavering commitment, he seeks his redemption the only way he can - through living the reality of loving Rose.

    "An entertaining story"
    What made the experience of listening to Loving Rose the most enjoyable?

    Story was interesting


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Loving Rose?

    When Thomas was found on the beach


    What does Napoleon Ryan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Yes for sure. the only trouble is that when the narrator is a man, he ends up messing up the woman's voices and if a woman is narrating then men's voices are messed up but still and all together it was a reasonable job. not that I could do any better I might add.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Not a good enough book for a film, but if I did it would be something like second chances?

    Story
    "Great story; Poor narration"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    No. Although I enjoyed the story a great deal I think the audio book was ruined by the narrator. I would certainly recommend the book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Loving Rose?

    The first time Rose kisses Thomas was memorable. The description of the reasons for each persons passion for the other. Thomas' heartfelt attempts to be a better person than he was in previous stories.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Napoleon Ryan’s performances?

    I would as long as it wasn't a romance which requires his attempting female voices. I think he would be very good with a procedural or murder mystery. He has a very deep voice which you would think would be good for romance novels but his phrasing and female voices are atrocious. Romance novels are not his forte.


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

    When Thomas realizes what the new meaning his life could be if he only dares to reach for it

    Story
    "If you are into murder detective novels..."
    Would you try another book from Stephanie Laurens and/or Napoleon Ryan?

    I personally don't care for "who done it" novels and try to avoid them. The write up for the book should have explained that this was a" detective finds the murderer" book.

    Story
    "Just a theory..."
    What did you like best about Loving Rose? What did you like least?

    After listening to the whole Cynster series I'm convinced that there are actually 2 different writers of these books. I haven't looked it up to confirm it, but when you listen to one after another you really notice the difference in writing styles.
    Author A is more erotic and sensual with highly intelligent heros and heroines. There's plenty of stimulating conversations and sexy banter between the two. The hero is confident and always knows what he wants and what the girl needs.
    Author B writes mystery novels with really boring or skimmed over sex scenes like the old fashioned regency romances. The heros are quiet, laid back, type B personalities and are basically clueless when it comes to females and relationships in general.
    I'm glad Malcolm got his story and redeemed himself. I really wish this book was written by author A but Malcolm had lost his confidence and was so unsure of himself and his future that his personality now suited the writing of author B. Oh well, not my cup of tea, but the next book should be written by author A. After reading a B book, I appreciate the writing of author A so much more.


    Have you listened to any of Napoleon Ryan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The other reviews complain about his voice but he actually did a fine job and his female voices were excellent compared to other narrators I've heard.

    Story
    "Glad Malcolm Sinclair escaped his watery grave"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. One of the delights of Ms Laurens books is the community of characters that you get to know and make your own. Malcolm Sinclair was very intriguing and his death was a loss of a great character. I'm glad he came back and is the hero he wanted to be.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The experience at the monastery and how he used those lessons even though it was a struggle.It took way to long for him to see his fate.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The beginning. The acceptance of his loss of beauty and physical agility set up the whole story and made Sinclair a believable hero.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Malcolm returns.


    Any additional comments?

    The fact that he was waiting for his fate was overdone. I think he needed to buy into the fact that fate or as I believe God's foresight is often right in front of us much sooner.
