Absolutely. This is a great book. When I read a wonderful book like this I really hate that so many people look down on the romance novel. This book has everything that a reader looks for in a novel.
It was an exciting story of suspense and paranormal. It had a wonderful romance where both characters grow and evolve through their love for each other.
I really enjoyed how smart and confident the female lead turned out to be. In so many romances the women do dumb things ( TSTL), but you have to just go with it. This novel had a strong female character that was inspirational. I don't know why some authors think that smart and strong can't also be the type a man could fall in love with. It's not just the empty headed wimps that deserve love!!
She was the reason I found this novel/author. I loved the Maiden Lane series that she read and went looking for more of her narration. I was so lucky to find the "becomes her" series. Ashford Mcnab has great taste in the novels she chooses to read as I have loved almost all of them.
She does accents so well and each character has their own "voice" . In this novel, she has three men approx the same age and upbringing. She manages to give them all a distinct sound. Her narration is just a treasure .

I have just become a fan of this author. She combined the love story with the suspense so that I could not stop listening. It was amazing how she tied the threads of the story together. I was so impressed by the detail and description of the story that I felt like I was right there. It was an exciting audio that I did not want to end.
I most appreciated that the characters were all strong especially the women that played key roles in moving the story along. But it is also about strong men that respect a woman's ideas and intellict. I wish all authors had the same respect for their female characters.
