Publisher's Summary

A hero of the crusades, Dominic le Sabre has returned in glory and in triumph to claim his reward: the beautiful Saxon bride awarded to him by the conqueror king. But Lady Margaret of the Blackthorne cannot yield to the bold Norman invader.

The beloved daughter of a sacred tribe of the Celtic mystics, she fears an ancient curse that could bring further turmoil to her battle-scarred land...and sorrow to her marriage bed.

With a word, the lady could turn her wedding into war. But there awaits in the noble knightᅵᅵs embrace a promise of passion unbound - and a love that neither violence nor treachery can tear asunder, a love both invincible and...untamed.

©2008 Elizabeth Lowell; (P)2008 Brilliance Audio

    Story
    "Major narrator fail"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would not recommend this book to anyone. The narrator has totally ruined the experience for me because of the most boring narration and phony voices. I have had to stop repeatedly to brace myself to just listen to the STORY, not the narrator. I am appalled she was not stopped and told to begin this book again.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    The Woman in White


    What didn’t you like about Anne Flosnik’s performance?

    Her horrible attempt at making a man sound "evil." She had three levels of inflection throughout the entire story, most of them a hoarse whisper. The levels never varied. I can talk about the mail being delivered with more enthusiasm, inflection, or variation in my speech.


    Did Untamed inspire you to do anything?

    Yes. It inspired me to write my first review. Sad that it had to be because the narration was so poor. The story was not much better.


    Any additional comments?

    I will be most cautious to make sure I do not get a book narrated by her again.

    "Narrator ruins the experience"

    Almost through with this listen and feel like my throat is sore from listening to this reader rasp her way through this story. I like Elizabeth Lowell tremendously, but I will not ever listen to anything of hers or anyone's read by this person again. It is full on painful and simply ruined the recording for me.

    "One of my top 10"
    What made the experience of listening to Untamed the most enjoyable?

    Everything, the story, the characters, era in which it was set .
    This is just an amazing story..


    What other book might you compare Untamed to and why?

    I can't think of one


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

    I love Anne Flosnik as a narrator


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I love books and some stories should stay as books. Movies just can’t portray the thoughts and character introspection


    Any additional comments?

    This worth the read.

    "Needs a different narrator."

    I read the trilogy when they came out in paperback and loved the books. I thought the different voices the narrator used were a little off. Meg was supposed to be young and sounds like an older woman. I could understand an english accent but not an older one. The normans came from france but were just deep guteral voices. These books are so worth the read but the narrator almost made me want to turn them off. I did keep listening because I knew the books were so good but wish different accents had been used.

    "Boy oh boy!"

    From beginning to end I was into this book. It did not disappoint. Unlike many historical romances nothing was overdone. The romance, war, crisis, etc was balanced into a most enjoyable story.

    As a first book in a series it does a good job of developing interest in characters and entertains enough to make you want the next one.

    "Did not even finish it, waste of money!!!"

    I honestly cannot understand how this book has almost 4 stars??? Are we listening to the same book? The hero is the ultimate male chauvinist pig. He has been awarded an estate that comes with its teenage virgin bride to boot. Despite the many times his bride saves his skin, he keeps suspecting her of consorting with his enemy. He locks her up and wants to tame her like a falcon, forcing her to feed from his hand and see only him. Give me a bloody break!!! And of course, we are expected to believe she would fall in love with her jailor. 3.5 hrs before the story came to an end, I've decided that I've had enough of this literary garbage. I have not read any of Lowell's other books, but if I had to judge her work by this one, I will save my credits for another author.

    "A Bit Trite and Juvenile"

    While I listened to the whole book, I can't say it was worth the time or the credit. At best, it could be regarded as a way to "clean the palate" between two intense reads. Enough said.
