Sam wasn't sure what to expect - but it was definitely not this graceful woman whose prim, proper stance was so at odds with the fire in her eyes. Working undercover to capture a dangerous band of rustlers and train robbers was a job that had always kept him apart from other people. He was a man with his heart firmly in check - until Maddie. Now she was unwittingly tempting him down a path he swore he'd never travel.

As I am a huge fan of Linda Lael Miller, I have listened to all of the Linda Lael Miller books that Audible has available. I really wanted to give this book 4 or 5 stars but I couldnt this time. This is my least favorite of the 6 available audiobooks. Its an enjoyable book however it is the most violent of the 6 books and has the least amount of romance. She does write an excellent story and gives a very realistic feel for the old west. This narrator and Lauren Fortgang (who narrated the McKettrick Way) are my least favorite narrations of this group of audiobooks. Buck Schirner (who did a better narration in The Poet by Michael Connelly) has an excellent speaking voice, but his character voices (womens dialog in particular) were shrill and unrealistic. His voice seemed to drone on and I would lose concentration and have to rewind often and listen again to keep up with the story line. I did not find his voice conducive to a romance story. That being said, I still look forward to more Linda Lael Miller books (and hope that they are narrated by Christina Moore, Laurel Merlington, Sandra Burr or Dick Hill).
Sam is incredible and the reader is outstanding! I love his voice, it's so sexy
Might have been a good story, but couldn't take the narration
He sounds like a robot
No. The reader - Buck Shirner - needs to go back to middle school and earn about stories - when to pit excitement into your voice; pauses; sternness, etc. And most especially - DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DO A WOMAN'S VOICE! That ruined the entire thing for me, I have roughly 300 audio books with audible.com and rely on them to help me through a cluster migraine (something to focus one that I don't have to look at). They are many male reader of romance books, such as Richard Ferrone, who simply reads the story without attempting other voices and does a great job.
I intend to return this audio book.
The opening sequence- school teacher in a well...
By trying a womans voice and ruining the timing of the sentences.
The book itself is a great read. Forget the audio version.
