Publisher's Summary

We joyfully request your attendance at the wedding of Miss Angelica Cynster... but not until she and her hero lay to rest an ancient grudge in the Scottish Highlands!

Headstrong Angelica Cynster is certain she'll recognize her fated husband at first sight. And when her eyes meet those of a mysterious nobleman, she knows beyond a doubt that he's the one. But her heart is soon pounding for an entirely different reason - when her hero abducts her!

The eighth Earl of Glencrae has no choice but to kidnap Angelica, the one Cynster sister with whom he hadn't wanted to tangle. But to save his castle and his clan, he must persuade her to assist him - and he's prepared to offer marriage to seal the deal!

Savor another Cynster novel.

    "Great series"

    I was happy to find this on Audibles, I have read the other books in this series and found this one to be just as good. I like that Stephanie Laurens' female leads are smart and quick minded. It is so much fun reading her writing and the performance was done perfectly.

    "Disappointing performance"
    What disappointed you about The Capture of the Earl of Glencrae?

    I have been hooked on Stephanie Lauren's Cynster series for years and realized, for the first time that what I truly enjoyed was Simon Prebble's reading. This time I could barely manage to listen to the end; Matthew Brenher was utterly disappointing - made the story seem quite boring.
    Alas, it seems Mr. Prebble has moved on to other authors and in my opinion it is Ms. Laurens's loss.


    What was most disappointing about Stephanie Laurens’s story?

    The performer.

    "Thought it would never end."

    The story line wasn't bad, but it was really drawn out. I had to make myself finish the book several times and it took me weeks to finish it. I wasn't fond of Angelica (the main female character) at first, but she grew on me as the story line developed. The main male character had no real personality. Maybe that was partly due to the performance, but definitely not all. I'm not sure I would recommend this to anyone. Maybe if it were free or on sale, but I wouldn't waste a credit or buy it at full price.

    "Great way to relax and unwind."
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Capture of the Earl of Glencrae to be better than the print version?

    Both versions are wonderful, but the audio edition is my favorite because I can actually close my eyes and imagine the story. It's nice to just lie back and let someone tell you a story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The Earl, of course. He has been reviled in the earlier books of the series as a kidnapper, someone to be caught and imprisoned. In this story you get to actually find out what drives him and why he has behaved the way he has.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene at the waterfall at the end. It's tense and suspenseful.

    "anti-climactic"

    so much anticipation with this and it just popped into place very nicely from the first page. what was the point? the build up of the 2 was very flat. no development or tension. what a waste of a hero!! and looking for a goblet - are we still Grimms fairytales? really lame. also it was not a believable story with 3 kidnappings etc. there should have been a little more meat on the bone.
    shame as it could have been sooo muh better.
    Ms. laurens - a little more planning for the next one please!

    "Fabulous!!!!"

    This book I must say was surpisingly delicious! It was an absolute delight compared to the two previous in this series. Stephanie did a great job with this book which in my eyes made up for the first two books! It also ended really well, I was so happy we got to experience the wedding and not just wonder if they happened and when. The narrator also did well enough, I would have loved Simon Pebble to have read but Antony did a good job. I would recommend anyone to read/listen to this trilogy.

    "Enjoyable read"

    I always enjoy Stephanie Laurens novels. She supplies romance, wit and humor in her stories. Although Matthew Brenher is a fabulous narrator, I prefer female narrators for romance novels.

    Story
    "Profound, exciting and perfect wrap up."
    Where does The Capture of the Earl of Glencrae rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    It was one of the books I have been counting the days for it's release and gone beyond my expectations. I have listened to it twice and gone back to certain scenes to savor.


    What other book might you compare The Capture of the Earl of Glencrae to and why?

    The Devil's Bride, by the same Author, the exciting plot, the reinforcement of the family values and the strength of the characters.


    What about Matthew Brenher???s performance did you like?

    Matthew Brenher worked out the pace wonderfully, each one of the feelings portrayed in the tremors of his voice, He performed a perfect Dominic and the rest of the Cynster's and I recommend he get Devil's Voice better it's more serious and deeper in other books and I think it wold mach the quality of his leadership. The female voices were perfect.


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

    I was profoundly moved by the Love scenes, they had a Spiritual finess related to the truth of each other in such intimacy.

    A lot more story and a lot less sex. Plus shorter generally.

    Terry Pratchett's latest.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    I think the narrator did well considering, although some of his phrasing was a bit strange.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment.

    What did you like most about The Capture of the Earl of Glencrae?

    It was well paced and rounded up the trilogy well.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Both the hero and heroine were sympathetic characters and believable enough.

    Matthew Brenher's performance was, as always, brilliant.


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

    Although the plot may seem a bit convoluted it seemed perfectly acceptable for the genre.

    "Good listening"

    This is the final story in a three part mini series and I found it the best of them all. It tied together all the pieces in the other two, In pursuit of Eliza Cynster and Viscount Breckenridge to the Rescue. It is well read by Matthew Brenher and is one of those books I will listen to again. It is a story in its own right, but the other two books will be more enjoyable if read in order.
