It's a very different storyline then a lot of the
HEA Historical Romance novels out there. Yet although it's a simple, errrr..... not so simple?, dilemma for the Heroine that drives this book it easily keeps you entertained. Its funny and sexy, just a little sad and very romantically happy.... yes, I enjoyed it!
NARRATOR : She did a wonderful job! I knew every character, every mood.... and not once did I 'hear' the narrator. Just as it should be!!! There were no distractions that sometimes exist like mispronounced words, bad timing, fluctuating speed or volume, and none of the mouthy sounds that ruin a good book. All in all I enjoyed this book and Maureen Cavanaugh greatly contributed to that.
CREDITWORTHY? : I would give it a definite YES but for the fact that it costs less than a credit does. For me it was definitely dollarworthy!
HEAT FACTOR: Steammmmy!!!!
Not an original sentence.
Could have been tolerable but the narrator was ghastly . I will for her to avoid in future.insipid
