    "Excellent Western Romance!"

    I LOVED this story! The romance is very well developed and the sexual tension was hot! The story and the narration were both passionate, intense and very interesting. I can't believe that the rest of the series is not available. Please add more books by this author!!!

    Story
    "The Rancher and the Medium - Hot Stuff!!!"

    Sylvia Mc Daniel conjured up a story that makes us laugh, cry and empathise with Desiree/Rose as she struggles to make a life for herself in spite of her chaotic upbringing. She's feisty and no nonsense and can stand up for herself, until Travis appears.

    Travis is all for family and is so attracted to Rose but cannot entirely trust her. His Mom wants grandchildren and to see her boys married and settled, so she will stop at nothing to make that a reality and runs a scam to entice the two main characters into getting to know each other. It's a cause for mayhem and chaos in the lives of the characters, but the story is funny, with lots of laughs and all's well that ends well.

    The supporting characters are well thought out and the plot thickens as the story emerges. Once you start listening you just want to continue to the end.
    This book was superbly written and I recommend it to other readers and listeners.

    I look forward to what else Sylvia McDaniel has to share, as this book is a 'keeper' and favourite. Really great reading.

    Listening to Robin Rowan was a wonderful experience as she portrayed the various characters via her voice. I'm impressed. You go girl.

    Story
    "A bit dull"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I liked the beginning of the book but the story was very slow and dragged out. The couple spent the entire book being at loggerheads with one another and I found their constant bickering and mistrust to be repetitive and monotonous.


    Have you listened to any of Robin Rowan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not listened to any of Robin Rowan's other performances but I would happily listen to another based on her narration of this book. I liked how she did different accents, including French and she was able to do male voices convincingly.


    Any additional comments?

    I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

    "Overall Okay"

    Honestly I thought this one in her series was terrible. I didn't like the characters or the story line. It was the same thing over and over again that the characters were arguing about and to me I could have read the first 2 chapters and been done with it. the overall performance was terrible ad well. The woman who read it kept pausing after each sentence rather than having them blend nicely. I liked the authors other book The Outlaw takes a Bride much better.

    "Great Book!"
    Any additional comments?

    This is a great book; this is the first book in The Burnett Brides series written by Sylvia McDaniel and narrated by Robin Rowan. Rose Severin lives in Fort Worth, Texas, she runs a séance parlor where she speaks to the dead, well she pretends to speak to the dead. Travis Burnett is determined to rid the town of imposters like Rose. Travis’s mother Eugenia thinks that Rose is the perfect woman for her son.

    The narrator Robin Rowan, did a wonderful job, and was very easy to listen too. She did a great job with the different characters and their voices.

    This book has a great story; if you are looking for a great romance, then you need to get this book. I am looking forward to the next book by this author. Once I started listening to this book, I didn’t want to stop until the end. I am looking forward to the next book in this series.

    A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

    I really enjoyed Robin's French accent that the heroine Rose used in certain scenes

    Yes you could but I listened to it every morning going to work.
