    "I loved everything about this book!"

    This book kept me captivated from beginning to end. The story wasn't your typical historical romance and I liked that......it kept it interesting. I recommend this book not only to anyone who enjoys romances but also people who like Native American stories.

    I heard this narrator before and I really enjoy her reading. Many people complain when she whispers and I don't understand the complaint. She only whispers when the book says "she/he whispered". How can you fault the narrator for whispering when the author wrote that in the book?

    Anyway, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and its worth a credit (or better yet if you find it on sale like I did snatch it up quick!)

    "Yes another 5 star rating!"

    The first book in the Crown's Spies series. Susan Duerden does a wonderful job of narrating this one. What I liked most was the unique plot. The prologue nicely set the stage for this, as well as for Christina's character, and Jessica's journal developed this plot nicely without interfering with Lyon and Christina's romance, which was rather whirlwind and angry, but tender and joyful as well. Christina being raised by Natives and then returning to England to honour her mother's request. Christina is one amazing character, and she never leaves one feel bored. Christina made me laugh. She's proud and strong willed and Lyon loves that about her. I love it when she divorces Lyon for shaming her. I love his reaction too. But most of all I love how she has everyone so damn confused, but so convinced of her sincerity that they'll do anything she asks, no matter how ridiculous it is from their point of view. And Lyon there is no words to describe him, he is gorgeous and very very stubborn but he is definitely not the only one. The witty dialog between the couple constantly made me laugh and smile. In fact, this book caused me to laugh a lot. If you are looking for an amazing love story with lots of funny moments than I highly recommend this audiobook.

    Story
    "Enjoyable. Humorous."

    Christina keeps secrets and lies to Lyon a lot. He knows she is lying - so that’s ok with me. Other authors annoy me when lies do not fit motivations. That does not happen here. Christina wants a temporary marriage and plans to divorce him soon after. He gets bent out of shape over that.

    One reviewer complained it was not historically accurate about Indians in America. If that’s true, I don’t care. I enjoyed it for what it was – light, fun, escape, and romance.

    AUDIOBOOK NARRATOR:
    Susan Duerden is fabulous. She’s a chameleon with her voices. I felt like different people were talking. She does men really well - and sexy. She has an excellent narration style. I’ll listen to her anytime.

    Genre: historical romance

    "Get a new narrator!"

    As a fan on Julie Garwood's books, I'm always excited to see one available on audible.com. This story doesn't disappoint... lots of romance, twists and turns... a nice distraction. The performance by Susan Duerden, however, almost had me turning off the book and scrapping the whole thing. Her portrayal of a child's voice was cringe inducing, and the voice used for the heroine was like nails scraping on a chalkboard... on the rare occasions she spoke above a whisper. In her defense, the author seemed to write a lot of, "she whispered", so I guess the narrator was only doing what was written, but it was so frequent that is was almost comical.

    I disliked the narrator so much, the even though I want to hear some more Julie Garwood books, I just can't sit through this narrator ever again.

    "Really Good"

    Very good read and I can't wait to read the other books in this series. At first I was thinking that this book is just another one of those that you listen to but your heart is not set upon it. From chapter 1 to finish I was intrigued and excited for more. I was hoping that the section with her father who was supposedly dead but actually was alive, was longer and more detailed. But it was great all the same! Susan did a wonderful job overall but more with the character voices.

    "Love Julie Garwood AND this book!!"
    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed this book enormously. Julie’s books have a great storyline and she manages to mix that with sex that stems from passion. I enjoy passion in books and she certainly delivers it here. The female characters in her books are usually hesitant about getting involved emotionally and it is nice to read books where women are not always desperate (as I see played in real life).
    This storyline is unique in that JG mixes the American Indian lifestyle and upbringing with the old British stuffiness. I like how she shows a strong Indian leader bending to his wife’s will to raise a child not his own during those times where white people were disliked so extensively by them. And then the strength in male character continues to show through in Lion as well. I just love the characters in this book. A nice mixture of good vs. evil.

    "Cute book"

    I am happy to see Julie Garwood's older books being released in audio form. I have been disappointed in the narrator that has been chosen but she seems to be improving. I hated this narrator in The Secret and still want a do over on that book but she was okay in this book. At least she is not Whispering but it still seems like she is telling it like a bed time story. I see that she is doing the other JG books and I just hope she get better. These Books are cute and funny that I recommend to anyone.

    "IT'S A WORTHY FIVE STAR LISTEN"

    This book is full of GREATS - the narration, the author, the storyline, the dialogue, the characters, their chemistry and, of course, the romance.

    It's all been said before by my fellow reviewers so all that I can add is that it was a joy to listen to this different, action packed tender, sweet, sad, funny, emotional story that stands out from the crowded bookshelves because it did such a good job of mentally time travelling you to a bygone era and feeding you a romance that nourishes your mind as well as your heart.

    Worth a credit? Absolutely YES.

    "Excellent Well-developed story"

    This is a great story, well developed with strong believable characters. From the first, the background story drew me in and held my interest all the way to the end. I especially liked Lyon and how he stayed so confused by his delightful lioness that you couldn't help being on his side.

    Definitely worth the credit. As usual July Garwood has produced an entertaining novel. Susan Duerden did a very good job of narrating.
