Still in town are her beautiful younger sister, Tricia, with her cruel lies; Ken, Tricia's handsome husband, who married the wrong sister; Jigger, the pimp and ruffian with plans of his own; and Cash, proud, mysterious, and complex. It is dangerous for Schyler to even be near Cash, yet she must dare to confront the past - if there is to be any peace in Heaven.

"Carefully modulating pitch and varying the Louisiana bayou accent, Hill clearly delineates the characters, from the light voices of sisters...to the deep Cajun-tinged accent of Cash, sultry and sensual local bad boy. (AudioFile)
His voice and his accent were hard to get used to at first, but he was a perfect voice for Cash. His voice turned out to be my favorite part of the book.
Dick Hill has a super sexy voice! What other books of his can I get??? Good story with some twists, love scenes, and good characters. The ending was a bit abrupt, but I really enjoyed the book.
Tell us about yourself!
My first Sandra Brown read. Found myself excited each morning to get into my car to go to work. Loved the story. Loved the narrator. He did the cajun accent so perfectly. Loved the character Cash. It never hit a dull spot. There will be more Sandra Brown listens in my future.
Cash - mean, sultry, unafraid.
How well he did the accents. Course his woman voice was kinda funny.
high among the audio books ive purchased
dick smith does an excellent job of narrating & draws the reader into story through strong character voices
excellent book, & thoroughly enjoyed
I have never been big on romance novels but after reading this book narrated by Dick Hill I got hooked. I found a few more narrated by him. This guy has to be the sexiest narrator in the World, lol. I'm now looking for more books narrated by him. WOW. Thanks Dick, excuse the pun.
Good book without being outstanding, but the way Dick Hill read the story made it one of the most enjoyable listening experiences for me so far.
This story had "Gone With The Wind" overtones and undertones. From the name of the "family's estate - Belle Terre" to the name of one main character "Skylar"... the entire tone of the book made me think of a dramatic "soap opera" based on the "long ago" behaviors, habits and manners of wealthy southern folks. But don't get it twisted, I am a loyal Sandra Brown fan!
Having said all that, I must admit that the story had plenty of dramatic and sexual scenes that held my attention, just like "Gone With The Wind" did.
Now, Dick Hill is one of my top three or four narrators. He is the voice of Lee Child's Jack Reacher. I've read all of the Reacher series and when I hear Dick Hill's voice, I can only think of Reacher and that little stickler distracted me somewhat. But as I said, the story was interesting enough to hold my attention throughout the entire listen. The other distractor for me, was the similarities between the Reacher and Cash characters. Cash is a big guy known as a womanizer. He is wanted by lots of women because of his "package" reputation. Whereas Reacher is 6'3" and has superhuman abilities. He can fight two or three guys at the same time and win the brawl - he's tough .... Both characters had military training that continues to benefit them.
Dick Hill provided a great performance as usual. He performed the story and he is not responsible for the storyline itself, but I did not like the sound of the voice he gave Cash. Cash is a smart guy, military trained, and a "doctor" of sorts trained by his mother, but the combination of the author's assigned words and mannerisms plus the voice Hill used made Cash sound, in my opinion, like an adult who had to ride the "yellow bus" to school....
Interesting story with a few flaws but entertaining.... recommend
This is my favorite SB book. I listen or read this book every year and I still find it sexy and amusing. I liked the narrator although he could use some work on his female voices he did a great job with the anti-hero. I thought it was a great dynamic between the 2 MCs. There is one line that always makes me cringe and I wish they could have changed it for the audiobook as it sounds even worse outloud. But like I said it's my favorite.
I loved where the Story takes place and the different characters that the author has in the story and how their developed
I absolutely love his voice and the amazing Louisiana accent that he used
Excellent book. Maybe just a,tad long, but easy to listen to. Narrator did a good job with each and every character.
I was an avid reader of books before my work took most of my time so now I listen to Audible books when I'm exercising or walking my dog. I like mystery and thriller novels, particularly good serial killer novels. I'm a writer and a psychotherapist.
I would have given this book five stars. I am generous with stars because really good listens are hard to find. However, Ms. Brown seems to think that describing sex acts between the characters in long, drawn out detail to the point that I started fast forwarding and had to do that several time to get past the entire scene, is erotic. It's not erotic, it's distracting to the storyline, unnecessary, and maddening to wait for the action to begin again. I don't care exactly how he touched her nipple with what fingers in the midst of her gasp, etc. etc. etc. It's a distraction, especially since there are many sex acts in the book, between the same two people. Dick Hill learned how to make his female characters sound real instead of brain dead twelve years old and that's a big improvement and welcomed.
