I'm addicted to audiobooks, particularly thrillers and erotic reads. I'd love for you to follow my reviews!
I'd heard a lot about this book, and I'm glad I checked it out for myself. The writing was delightful and the characters were well-developed. True, the hero wasn't politically correct by today's standards, but that made it even better. Recommended for those who love a good bodice ripper.
I didn't realize so much of the book would be missing in the audio abridge version. It was a big disappointment because the book is one of my all time favorites to read.
The only thing I regret about this presentation is too much has been cut from the original book. Why?
The pleasant voice of the narrator was great. I just wish you'd do the novel in its entirety.
I knew what the book was about. I`ve read it in print repeatedly
The attraction between the 2 main characters
I would not if it was bases on only these 5 chapters
..this was not the complete book. That kind of ruined it for me. Only 5 chapters, when I know there is so much more that was not included.VERY DISAPPOINTING and does not give the credit due to Rosemary Rogers.This was her first book one of my favorites..again VERY DISAPPOINTING .In a way I feel cheated :(
I was not happy at all with the ending of this book. in-fact it was very disappointing to me unless you want to be left hanging I would not recommend this one.

A Classic of the romance genre, along with Woodiwiss' Shanna. Unfortunately, Abridged. There should be a special place in literary hell for those men who choose to abridge romances, because they're beneath whatever standard those men have. Puh! I spit on you! If we create our own reality, I'll take romance over murder or psychosis anyday of the week,etc.
The Kindle and printed versions of this book are fantastic. But Wow what a disappointment to find the audio is only the first 1/4th of the story. The entire Ginny and Steve struggle is completely missing. You would think this is the end of the story, and yet the book is much more indepth and the struggles don't leave a true happy ending. SO this is not a complete book by any measure. Sorry but was very sad substitution.
Many, many years ago, I read the print version of this book and enjoyed it very much. This abridgment left out so much that it lost the depth of character development of the main characters, Ginny and Steve. This was my first and will be my last abridged edition!
