The Cowboy and the Princess | [Lori Wilde]

The Cowboy and the Princess

On the run from an arranged marriage, Princess Annabella of Monesta dons the guise of a hitchhiking cowgirl. But when she finds herself drenched, alone, and hungry, she has no choice but to trust the tall Texas horse whisperer who offers her a ride. He's like no one she's ever known - a strong sexy man who says just what he thinks. And when one wild kiss leaves her breathless, she quickly realizes she'll give up everything to spend a lifetime of nighttimes in his arms. But how can there be happily-ever-after with palace guards hot on her trail?

Publisher's Summary

Brady Talmadge was a cowboy with five unbreakable rules:

1) Never pick up a pretty hitchhiker.

2) Avoid damsels in distress.

3) Never order chili at a truck stop.

4) Always trust your gut.

5) Never tell a lie....

This is what happened when he broke all his rules...and got into a whole lot of trouble!

    "Narration was unpleasant."

    The tone and diction the narrator used for the princess made her sound like a simpleton, not royalty, in my opinion.

    Story
    "I'm not sure - but the book was extremely lacking"
    What would have made The Cowboy and the Princess better?

    I'm not sure, but I found the book boring and I kept skipping chapters trying to find and interesting point and I found none.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Lori Wilde again?

    Maybe. Not sure but I know I won't be listening to any more of the cowboy series.


    Would you be willing to try another one of C. J. Critt’s performances?

    I'm not fond of her narrative style.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    not for me

    "The story is ok"
    What did you like best about The Cowboy and the Princess? What did you like least?

    I had a hard time listening to this story. The narrator was hard to listen to. I could only listen to this story in segments.


    Would you recommend The Cowboy and the Princess to your friends? Why or why not?

    If you can get passed to narrator, this book is ok.


    What three words best describe C. J. Critt’s performance?

    Very hard to listen to


    Was The Cowboy and the Princess worth the listening time?

    No

    Story
    "Beautifully Written!"

    Good to know chivalry is not dead when you read a good novel about decent men. And this was a good novel about just such a man. Brady Talmadge, suave, rugged, tall, quiet, ready to come to the aid of a woman if she was in need (damsel in distress that is). Five rules to live by, strictly, and carefree on the road, a "Horse Whisperer". WOW!, it really can't get better than this!!! Wherever, this man is I really would like to meet him. Then he encounters the said Woman in need, "Rule #3: Avoid Damsels in Distress". Whoops, busted, he can't just leave her in the rain...on the side of the road...to let some low down dirty creep take advantage of her...Rule #3 Brady (Whispering in his ear)...I know. Ughhhh, stops his truck, can I help you? Yes, please. And so it begins..............

    But Lori Wilde spins the story and has such a way of describing every detail as it unfolds into the most beautiful, heartwarming, story. No tit-for-tat or domineering person for a change. Just two people, Brady and Annie with two totally different stories to be told, figured out, melded or blossomed into the most wonderfully written fairytale. As you can see I was very impressed with this story.

    I am not usually impressed with romance novels and do not usually read many. But this one intrigued me and I took a chance, and boy am I glad.

    The narration needed a softer person to narrate, so it was okay, eh. But I couldn't dock the stars because I wanted this entire story to get a complete "15 stars".
