    I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!

    "Charming Book"

    What a nice change- beginning in England and ending in America. I liked it. And I really enjoyed this book. I liked ballroom scene. Lucas and Taylor are to meet there. Lucas (the stranger everyone is talking about) is visiting with friends and acquaintances and then Taylor makes her entrance. She is wrapped-up with her friends talking to her when her ex-fiancee, William (come to find out is half-brother to Lucas) starts making his way to her from one side of the room while Lucas is making his way to her from the other side. Both get to her at the same time. FIREWORKS! She can't stand the site of William (who eloped with Taylor's cousin weeks before the wedding) and hasn't had a chance to really get a look at Lucas (tall, dark, handsome). William tries to get Taylor's attention while she tries ignoring him while Lucas's looks have "swept Taylor off her feet". Without introduction Taylor looks at Lucas and ask if isn't it time to leave- he takes her hand while they both start to approach the stairs to exit. Everyone is yelling whats going on, how do they know each other, where are they going, etc. when Taylor turns around and tells them "He's my husband!" Can't you just picture the confusion and excitement. And this was at the beginning of the story! It get's better!
    Both Lucas and Taylor were using each other for their on "agendas" but the attraction for each other did them in. I loved Lucas' frustration with his physical attraction to Taylor and Taylor's innocence of it. Towards the end it was frustrating that Taylor was not recognising Lucas' love for her.
    And I do agree with another reviewer about Taylor constantly calling Lucas "Mr. Ross", her saying "my daughter" and "my son" when she had just taken on the role of mother with the kids, and the boy changing his name between Daniel and David. But is wasn't enough for me to get aggravated with the book. And I did enjoy a break from the English rogue or knights in shining armor. A Montana mountain man was kind of refreshing!

    Rosalyn Landor is one of my favourite readers and she was fantastic with the delivery of the story

    "Not that great"

    I didn't like the main characters because they were portrayed as Blumbering crazy people. The lead female was super English and so uptight. The lead male was headstrong. I usually like all of that in characters but these characters it was taken to the maximum. The characters have the worst communication between each other as well as the author to the aidience. We usually know what is going on but for part of this book we weren't allowed to know until the characters talked to each other. The characters went almost the entire book without talking about why they make their decisions and why the do things for each other. Because of this lack of communication it made the book irritating ease then the audience knows somethi g and the characters won't talk about it. the last 2 chapters were excellent because they finally talk but even that is a mixed signal message to the other person! The female lead seriously realized in the last chapter that her husband was ashamed of his past! Ti me it was like lady your character is so blind everyone could see that. I like the authors books but this one I couldn't wait for it to be over with it and get to the point. Performance was good. Overall book I thought was terrible.

    "Honestly my Favorite! "

    I LOVE her books, and I can not get enough of Prince Charming. I have read this book at least 20 times, and now I have listened to it at least once a week for the past 6 months. the author is amazing as well as the narrator Roslyn definitely worth the buy!

    "Top of the List"

    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.

    "Beautiful Love Story.... A Sure Classic"

    I read this book from time to time when I am craving something calming & steady. This story is a classic and has become one of my favorite Julie Garwood books. I just love the story of Lucas Ross (the epitome of masculinity & gorgeousness--American Man) & Taylor Stapelton (lovely English Lady).

    Although I have to admit that when I read it for the first time, I was also frustrated by the same type of things other reviewers have complained about, such as the slow pace during the first part.

    I think the worst part of the book is when Taylor's friend Victoria is introduced. I was so enchanted with the development of the love story between Lucas & Taylor that when Victoria was introduced in the storyline I was like, "what the....????" I felt like she was more of a distraction from the real story---Lucas & Taylor, because their attraction was magnetic & pretty potent from the start. I think Garwood messed up in the way she introduced Victoria. It was long, unnecessary & well...slow. I, for one, didn't know whether to be jealous for Taylor or angry at Lucas because he was paying so much attention to her. However, I suppose Lucas was really nice to her because she reminded him of his mother. Victoria was never a distraction to Lucas in his conquest of love for Taylor.

    Anyhow, once the story gets on track and the plot develops, you really understand why Victoria is necessary & great part of the story.

    One of the reasons I revisit this book from time to time is because of the sweetness in the love affair. Lucas adores Taylor & one of my favorite parts is when he caresses & pulls her into him for more loving embraces & kisses after they make love (Lucas Ross is a cuddler...LOL).

    Also, Lucas studies Taylor well (mainly because the man can't keep his eyes off of her!!!), and is truly her knight in shinning armor--or should we say her Prince Charming. Taylor is quite a lady herself. She is more like a modern-day woman...the kind that can do it all. She is loving, effortlessly beautiful inside & out and is not pretentious in any way. She reaches out to others around her and is like the glue that makes everything work. She creates a loving home environment for everyone who needs her love.

    As a PLUS---the love match between Hunter & Victoria was just perfect! I thought they had a really funny beginning & then a deeper wow-effect in their relationship. It is so cool how both Lucas & Taylor's best friends find love together...just perfect!

    In addition, the sweet children, Georgie, Ali and Michael (Daniel-David) were also such sweet additions to his classic story. They just make your heart melt.

    I tear up EACH TIME at the end when the grandmother, Lady Esther, is mentioned. She is the one who had the foresight to create a wonderful future with the needs of her girls (Taylor & the twins) in mind.---There couldn't have been a better ending. Lady Esther, loving grandmother found Taylor's Prince Charming.

    The William Shakespeare quotes were fabulous! LOVE THIS BOOK!!

    NARRATOR:
    I LOVE Rosalyn Landor as a narrator!!! She is just superb! Yes, I even loved the voicing she made for Lucas Ross. She brings everything to life. THis is why I am addicted to audiobooks---due to fabulous narrators as herself.

    "Mixed Emotions"

    This is a hard book/audio for me to rate. The first few hours were slow. Later, disturbing content had me wondering if I wanted to finish it, not knowing how bad it was going to get, but I continued to listen. As it progressed it got better, and I was happy with the way it ended.

    Yet, with all I considered negatives, I continued to listen--wanting to see how it played out. I think it was the excellent performance by Rosalyn Landor that kept my attention -- like a movie whose talented actors carry the story.

    Story
    "I loved this book!"

    The usual HR elements are here, but with an awesome twist! She is a lady who must marry to be free of the evil control of an abusive uncle. Her grandmother is dying, and out of love, she chooses an American husband for her, and tells her to trust him. He marries her for his own reasons, and tells her in a brutally candid moment that he'd rather be hung than married. He also admits that he promised her grandmother that he would protect her and see her settled before going back to his own life. She feels guilty that he's giving up so much for her and is determined not to be a burden to him. Misunderstandings ensue.

    What HE doesn't know is that our heroine has an obsession with Daniel Boone and Davy Crockett, and has read all the books about them. She has also prepared for the life she wants, and dreams of a life lived in the wilds of America. She isn't the fragile flower he thinks she is.

    I felt like I traveled throught the US of 1860, and I loved every minute. The scenes in the wilderness town called Redemption, are a particular treat, and the 19 male inhabitants of Redemption greet her with a comical and sweet adoration that made that part of the book particularly fun to read. I would love to find other HR's with a similar setting.

    What I don't get is why I waited so long to read this, since I love Julie Garwood. I think it may have been some of the so so reviews that I read, and again, I've learned my lesson. If there was ever a book to take a chance on, this one is it. I LOVED it!

    One thing more --- when I got to the end, I felt like there either must be a third part that I missed downloading, or a sequel. There were a few things I would have loved some resolution on, but overall, this one is perfect. I guess that's just how you feel when you don't want a book to end. {sigh}

    Highly recommended!
