This was a fun story and would have been great had the narrator been better. The narrator was awful. The men sounded like old crotchety, scratchy voiced men. It was almost unbearable to listen to her do the hero's voice.
The story itself was good, I liked the Freaky Friday twist. There was lots of good dialogue. Sexual tension and one well written sex scene.
A strong hero and heroine. The Heroine was not whiny, shy and whimpering, which is a plus in book. The hero was strong and handsome (but did not sound that way due to the awful narration)
Narrator Veida Dehmlow should practice doing men's voices or don't narrate.
I enjoy historical, paranormal, and contemporary romance. Also steampunk, sci-fi, fantasy, suspense, and fiction. I'm open to about anything
Setting: England 1822
Narration was average. I wasn't immersed in the story, nor was I kicked out of it by mispronunciation or overly melodramatic delivery.
The premise of this is not new, but the author freely admits that it is a take on the switched personalities trope in a historical setting. The characters had definite personalities, and they definitely set off sparks in their dealings with one another. Their chosen lifestyles are so diverse, you have to wonder how they functioned. The author didn't take the opportunity to give humor to some of the situations except for Lady Corinna's confusion over what to do with a man's morning erection. However, the mutual hatred went too far and too deep. You have to wonder how they could ever forgive some of the things they said and did. But it does make the conciliation more dramatic in a way. I just wish the story had been tightened up and shorter.
The story was new and refreshing, and I'm, now, happily a new fan of Katherine Ashe. This was one of those kind of stories that make you laugh, and cry, and fall in love. I think the characters were delightful. Isn't it great when you try a book by an author you haven't read, and they turn out to be wonderful?
The narrator was enjoyable to listen to, and I would listen, happily, to other books narrated by her.
Yes it was a fun story
