Stardust of Yesterday: Haunting Hearts Series | [Lynn Kurland]

Stardust of Yesterday: Haunting Hearts Series

Genevieve Buchanan inherited a castle—and a ghost to go along with it. But Kendrick de Piaget was no typical ghost. He was a handsome and infuriatingly arrogant 13th-century knight. At first, he wanted to frighten Genevieve, though she was more charmed than scared by his ghostly tricks. But when his thoughts turned to wooing her instead, Genevieve had to face her greatest fear: falling in love.

    "One of my favorites"

    When a book is a favorite it can be a disappointment listening to someone else read/interpret it. I love these characters so was apprehensive. This narrator is wonderful with the characters. I hope she narrates the rest of Kurland's books.

    Story
    "Kendrick Emasculated"
    If you could sum up Stardust of Yesterday in three words, what would they be?

    My favorite book


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved that Kendrick loved Genevieve and Genevieve loved Kendrick so much that it transcended the curse.


    What didn’t you like about Ilyana Kadushin’s performance?

    Everything! There was no emotion behind the performance. She took all the humanness out of the characters. She gave Kendall this breathy woman's voice when she should have given him a strong, arrogant, sensitive and sexy voice. Kendrick is a braggart like Robin, his dad. He should have been gruff and funny. She also gave the voices of her characters no inflection at all. Kendrick was nothing like the character she portrays. She emasculated him. I know he was a ghost but she took all his substance away, all his humor and emotion. I am sooo very disappointed because I love this book and was looking forward to listening to it over and over again. I wish I could send it back to Audible and get another book with a better reader. How did this woman get this job!! Please, let Davina Porter(exceptional reader), Simon Preble or even Jenny Sterlin( although she makes her characters sound mentally underdeveloped because she speaks too slowly sometimes) re-read this book. At least they know how to define an audio character. This woman should seek a new career or at least a new genre of book to read.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yeah. When he tells her that he doesn't hear her packing, when he calls her at the hotel room in London. I love that whole phone conversation! Then I love it when the Inspector drives her back to the castle and Kendrick is standing there waiting for her looking all sexy and they have this mental conversation thing going. I love this book!


    Any additional comments?

    Is it possible to have a new reader read this book? I would be willing to purchase the book if they have a new reader read the book. I am afraid to buy any more Lynn Kurland audiobooks for fear that this Kadushin lady will butcher them.

    "Couldn't wait to hear this one!"
    What made the experience of listening to Stardust of Yesterday the most enjoyable?

    I read the book years ago when it was first published, loved it and was looking for it to add to my Kindle library. I was pleased and delighted to see it in your audio collection. I started listening and was not dissappointed at all. Loved it from beginning to end.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The whole idea of a love story between a handsome medevial ghost and a modern woman as just too yummy to resist.


    What does Ilyana Kadushin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She truly gave life to the characters in the story. I was not disappointed with her take on how each character sounded.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I loved the story the first time I read it and simply loved the audio version as well. Every emotion I felt when I read it came back and hit me as I listened.


    Any additional comments?

    Will look for some of my other favorites narrated by llyana Kadushin.

    PNR is my prefered genre, but I also enjoy any lighthearted, funny, steamy stories. Listening to books helps me to do mindless housework.

    "I didn't get it."

    I have to admit this is my 1st romance novel, so perhaps I'm not qualified to review this. I love some of the ideas in this book, castles, knights, ladies in distress, love despite impossible obsticles etc (I dress up & go to Ren. Faires for goodness sake), but this book just came across as a bit cheesy to me, I found myself rolling my eyes quite a bit. I found that I just couldn't "suspend my disbelief" for many of the situations, and I found myself thinking "oh yea, RIGHT!"

    "An Author Worth Reading."

    This is Lynn's first foray into the realm of romance writing and she defiantly nailed it right off the bat. This story of a modern day girl who falls in love with a 15th century ghost is laced with wisdom and humor and of course a happy ending. Once you start to read Stardust of Yesterday you wont want to put it down, but don't be sad when it's finished. Oh no, Lynn has crafted a whole, long saga involving two families (the De Piaget Family and the MacLeod Clan) that magically and paranormally weaves these two families together in and out of time spanning the middle ages to the present. Trust me, you will be greatly entertained and glad you found this author. To find the correct reading order of her books, go to her website. Enjoy!

    "Things an adult does"

    There are stages of development that adults pass through before they are 30. It is important that we go through these developmental stages or something is perhaps wrong. I didn't care for this book because it didn't ring true in the face of human realities. The character is naive in way that doesn't make sense unless she has been exposed to a sheltered super ultra religious compound in which all women are sequestered. Which she has not been. I know that this is a paranormal romance but I can't be expected to suspend all understanding of humanity.

    Story
    "Not as good as i had hoped..."

    This book was exciting and interesting in the beginning...about a young woman who mysteriously lost her business and therefore felt forced to accept an inheritance from a distant and unknown relative. She inherited a huge castle and more money than she could even spend in 10 lifetimes. Upon moving in she learned that all her relatives before her were now either dead or crazy after inheriting the castle themselves. What was the catch? Unfortunately, less than half way into the book, the excitement fizzled out and it turned into a stereotypical romance novel...perfect, strapping, sexually experienced man and a 30 something female virgin...on and on and on. This book could have been much better. I take partial responsibility for my dissapointment by mistaking this for an adventure/ mystery novel rather than a romance - my less than favorite genre.

    "Stardust of Yesterday"

    I selected the audio version of Stardust of Yesterday since the book was not available for the Kindle. I started reading the series (but do not worry all book stand alone) the start of the summer. I have enjoyed all the books and I might add I do not usually read series books. The characters come alive in their own stories and are very enjoyable.

    "Good book."

    Enjoyable book. By the time I got past the first chapter it was very hard to stop listening. A few good and unexpected twists which for myself I didn't see it coming. Which just that in itself for me makes a good listen.
