this book was ok, it ended rather abruptly and the book was very short, Christine Feehan has some great books, so the mediocrity of this one kind of stunned me.
A great story. Erotically charged. Since it is a relatively short book the plot isn't as complicated as many Christine Feehan books but it was quite good.
I have read all of this author's books, from several of her different series, and I have got to say this was the worst book I have read of hers. I guess, statistically, she was due for a stinker!
The love scenes got to be tiring and tedious- I actually had to skip over them since I couldn't take them anymore, which made the story end much faster, and made me feel cheated as far as the money spent to buy it.
Christine, please, go back to developing the storyline and cut out the sex already!
I enjoy reading series and very rarely read stand alone series. I mostly read romance and sci-fi & fantasy.
This is a waste of time! This book although important I guess for the series was just a waste of time and money. I am a huge fan of Christine Feehan she is the author who got me into paranormal books. So I figured that this series would be a good one. Man was i wrong.
It isn't that long but it took me forever to read. I can't explain. How much of a bore this book was.
A woman goes to the jungle of South America to inherit her dead parents estate. She meets a man and with in one day of meeting him falls in love with him and begins sleeping with him and decides to spend the rest of her life with him. Oh and a plot twist another man tries to steal her and the two men duke it out and fight to the death to have her. That is what the story is about in a two sentences.
From the excepts that I have apart from this one the rest of the series seem to have more meat to them, and should be more entertaining than this one.
I wold have to say hat this is not essential to the series and you can go on to the second book and be fine with out reading the first one. The narrator did a okay job but not the best. All in all this is not one of the best from Christine Feehan.
I absolutely LOVE Christine Feehan's stories, good story lines, and STRONG heroines! BUT, this reader gave her heroine such a weak, whiny quality, I found myself glad that this was one of the shorter of her stories. Would likely not purchase another book with Ms Kruise being the reader. :-(
Ms Kruise made the heroine appear weak and whiny. NOT Ms Feehan's heroines at all.
Enjoyed the story, though.
I think so
it was to much like the Dark Series...which I loved I just thought this one would be ......more!
She wasn't bad at all space and tone was fine..
The characters were interesting... I don't think I would cut any.
I am willing to give the next book a try... I did like the story, again it's just that I though it would be different.....just something more... I can't put my finger on it..
I had a free $10 credit from Audible, so it's probably my fault that I didn't do much research when picking a random book to download...
This novella/short story had no depth and was just a lame erotic flop from the first chapter. I thought the idea of shape-shifters had some real potential, but it was wasted on steamy love scenes and sexual tension through out.
I was disappointed and annoyed. I would never read anything by this author again. I think I would throw up or laugh myself silly... What a joke...
The narrator, Allison Kruise, has a nice voice and I enjoyed her narration very much. I thought she did a great job and hope she narrates some better books in the future!
The narrator sounded like a computer program, very monotonous. The story seemed to be good. However, the distraction of the grating voice distracted me from really absorbing the story. I feel sorry for the author of this book. The only thing I didn't like about the story was that it leaned a little to hard on the romance (sex) scenes. Other than that great story! I most definitely suggest buying the book and reading it yourself though.
