New York Times best-selling author Bertrice Small is hailed by Literary Times as the “reigning queen of romance” and has received numerous Reviewers’ Choice Awards from Romantic Times.
Set in the 16th century, Until You tells the tale of a young heroine who discovers the love of a lifetime. Beautiful Rosamund is introduced to the Earl of Glenkirk, and they immediately fall in love. Their growing passion is stifled, however, when war breaks out between England and Scotland.

"Full of historical detail, political intrigue and lots of steamy, enthusiastic sex, the second Rosamund saga should please Small's many fans." (Publishers Weekly)
Before purchasing this book, I read the reviews. One in particular stood out, the reader said that the narration was often distracting because on swallowing noises. I discounted this comment because I have another book narrated by Virginia Leishman (Mrs. Dalloway) and no such distractions occur. So I bought the book. The story is a good one with a different twist. But the reviewer was right, one can hear what appear to be swallowing noises throughout the book more in some places than others. So I listened to excerpts from other books performed by Ms. Leishman and this seems to be an isolated case meaning perhaps she had a cold or some other problem while performing this book. I guess what I'm saying, don't disregard her other work based on this book alone. Whatever the problem it is not universal to all her work.
Now, the story is very good and even has a premise with a twist not usual in this gendre. If I had a hard copy of the book I probably enjoy the story very much.
I love Betrice's writing. I read this book years ago but when I saw it on audible, I had to get it and listen. I wish the rest of the Friarsgate Inheritance were here as well as the O'Malley saga.
I am a fan of Bertrice Small. This book is awesome you will not be displeased at all. I hope to enjoy more of her books at audible.com. This book's heiress is a lovable character who meets the love of her life, but to find it will not last through misfortune. Her neighbor has been in love with her since her girlhood and she is his great love. It is amusing how he is coach by her relatives to win her. Great book.
I love Amanda Quick's writing. She bold, hot and interesting. That's why I couldn't wait to get into this story. I started listening to it and by the first hour i was waiting for it to end. The Nararation by Virgina Leishman was horrible. Everytime she swallowed your heard it and it was loud . It sounded like she had a mouth full of marbles. Again, the story was a good one. But I couldn't concern myself with the story because I was consumed by noise in the background. I have a mental note to not purchase anything that this individual nararates.
