I really enjoy Lauren's book and I especially like the narrator. It drives me crazy when they change narrators with their novels. He is definitely someone you should listen to....but the book is great. I love it when the hero is being setup and tortured by the heroine. She knew before he does that they were meant to be....great continuation of the Cynster novels. The love scenes were great...smile.
Simon Prebble does his usual excellent rendition of the characters, and but for that, I wouldn't have finished it. The interminable sex scenes that are usual in Laurens' books are even more frequent in this one. The plot looked promising when she finally got round to it midway through, but stalled and fizzled before it had a chance to develop.
I'm not sure but I'm reluctant to read the next book in this series.
I like most of the Cynster characters so they bring something to the story. But not enough.
The earlier Cynster stories were very good. The series started to fade with the previous book and it has really dropped with this one. Maybe Stephanie Laurens just had a bad book.
On the positive side, the author has a wonderful vocabulary and the reader is capable. The book is way too long for the limited and predictable plot. I am glad I got it on sale and didnt waste a credit on it. I fell asleep several times and had trouble rewinding and finding my place since the same scenes seemed to keep repeating and the plot moves with all the speed of a soap opera.
I've listened to many Stephanie Laurens books and never been so bored. No real story and the romance is boring and insufficient on its own to merit so many chapters.
I read so I can write
As the story goes, I don't think this novel is as good as the rest. The premise is just weak and the sex overwhelms it. That said, as a Cynster fan, I liked the book because there was an opportunity to get to know some of the older members of the family - Arthur, Louise, and especially Helena. For me that rescued the book from a lower score.
Narration as usual was wonderful.
I am an artist. I enjoy listening to mystery romances while sculpting art in wood.
Yes I will. I enjoy a good romance and this is a good one.
Don't buy this series unless you want to be disappointed due to the fact only part of the series is available to listen to. And there is NO chance to listen to the missing books. The publisher is not willing to add them to Audible for the listening public to enjoy.
