The main characters were strong and smart. The tale had loads of substance and plot. It wasn't just about two idiots pining over each other.
Taylor, because she wasn't an idiot. She was a good strong Lead.
Taylor. She has a good accent for British society. Her american man accent needed a little work at first.
Daniel/David Switching names was inventive and fun.
I often feel for women growing up in this period of time. There was so much responsibility to remain "a lady". A proper woman isn't suppose to know much about anything just bow to her man's wants and look pretty. The heroin in this Prince Charming is a strong, opinionated woman. I like the way the author builds each character throughout the book so we get to experience their believable change in attitudes and the reality of their life's unpredicable situations. The book flows and each detail is brought together smoothly.
Excellent book and Rosalyn Landor is the perfect narrator.
reviews for fun
Rosalyn Landor is one of my favorite narrators. I liked it from beginning to end. I liked the characters, the book, the author, and the narrator.
Loved this story !
The narration didn't take anything from it, as usual Rosalyn Landor was great.She can do voices...male, female, kids and even old ladies and accents, too.One thing that bothers me...a couple of times I'm sure I heard her say grandfather when it is clear in the story that it's a grandmother they're talking about. Did anyone else hear this?
Good story. I had already read it before listening. Be aware this story includes children (which I liked in this case). Be aware of explicit sex scenes (a few). Two couples fall in love, so the pages devoted to each couple are limited. Very good narration, except for Duerdan's rendition of Lucas Ross, the "mountain man" hero. He sounds like he is speaking without fully opening his mouth. Rather blah. Not how I had imagined this bad-ass warrior of superstar fame. He did nothing for me. Nothing at all. In fact, Duerdan's impression of Lucas almost ruined a favorite story. On the other hand, Duerdan's take on Lady Esther, the old English lady, is solid gold. Nice job portraying Lady Taylor and Lady Victoria, the two heroines. She conveyed believable voices for the three children, too -- and not too squeaky, as some narrators do.
I read so I can write
If I make a list of my favorite 20 books, this one would be top of the list.
The story is solid and the characters are all very strong and believable. There is not just one wonderful love story, but two, and both are sweet believable stories with no overabundance of sex which doesn't fit into the story.
There are also some wonderful secondary characters - truly characters- that give the story fun and interest.
Definitely on worth listening to more than once.
I have listened/read Julie Garwood books before and have really liked them. But this one I was expecting more out if it and was a little disappointed. Maybe it had to do with the narrator who I didn't enjoy on this one.
It was't too much, just enough....really enjoyed....
one of my favorites was when they were heading to the house in MT and one of the twins says "look mommie, there's our man" I thought that was cute...
Julie Garwood delivers another wonderful story full of intrigue and suspense and lots of laughs. I hope there is a sequel
I thought the narration was a little off on this one. The characters were flat and presented that way. The men's voices were distracting and Taylor's....ugh.
Almost not finish it
