    "Was entertaining"

    Loved the lead male character, he was strong and almost mean...but not. Good narroration. Definately worth the read/listen.

    I enjoy historical, paranormal, and contemporary romance. Also steampunk, sci-fi, fantasy, suspense, and fiction. I'm open to about anything

    "Not bad... But not great either"

    Setting: England (early 1800s?)
    Genre: Romantic suspense
    Narration was average. I'm getting used to Anne Flosnik, but she's still not in my favorites list. I just find her performances inconsistent. Maybe it's the director? At least she doesn't mispronounce words.
    This was JAK's second Amanda Quick, but by no means was it early in her career. The plot was interesting, with a fortune hunter-shy bluestocking heiress and a sexy, wounded war hero fortune-hunter. The relationship between them is contentious throughout the book. She is progressive, he is chauvinistic. There is more compromise by the HEA, but the argumentative nature of the relationship is the main plot device in the romance. The suspense part of the story was way too much in the background. There wasn't enough build-up to make the resolution satisfying, though half of that was a total surprise for me. There should have been more mysterious occurrences, and they should have been more threatening.
    I got this in a BOGO, and it was worth the half credit. It is probably worth a full credit if you have an emotional attachment to AQ, like I do. I'll probably listen again, if I ever get enough self-discipline to stop buying credits (I'm on my 3rd Platinum Membership for the year so far).

    "couldn't finish it"

    well, i wanted to like this - description sounded good and some good reviews but i personally couldn't finish it - to put it simply - it has more expected romance novel situations and lines than i could stand - so corny and predictable and not believable. i rarely don't finish a book so enough said.

    "Typical historical romance"

    Not a typical Quick historical romance in that the male lead is penniless and looking for a heiress, but likeable nonetheless. It was Quick's typical fun read until they got married and then it kind of went downhill. Not one of my favorite Quick novels, but she's still one of my favorite historical romance authors.
