Whisper To Me of Love

Ripped from her dying mother's arms, Morgana Fowler was cast into a life of desperate thievery. With a tongue even sharper than the blade she deftly wields, she has all but mastered her devious trade - until she picks the pocket of a dashing American who wrests her from the sordid streets of London. In the arms of her gallant protector, she is helpless against the longing he elicits within her.

Publisher's Summary

Ripped from her dying mother's arms, Morgana Fowler was cast into a life of desperate thievery. With a tongue even sharper than the blade she deftly wields, she has all but mastered her devious trade - until she picks the pocket of a dashing American who wrests her from the sordid streets of London. In the arms of her gallant protector, she is helpless against the longing he elicits within her. Royce Manchester basks in a world of privilege and power in the decadent British Regency, and lowborn Morgana finds in him a love she's never known. But the secret of her true parentage threatens to bring her new life crashing down. With a sinister figure from her past ever lurking at her heels, she and Royce must confront one of Regency England's most diabolical villains - a challenge that fans the flame of a love that knows no bounds.

    "Good listen, in spite of itself!"

    This was such a good story. I am so glad that I forced myself to continue to listen, because I was not sure I was going to be able to. The reader, in the first 15 minutes, had me ready to give up and grab the book. Then she settled into a rhythm, chose an accent from the many she was testing and made an effort to stick to it. Her performance from then on wasn't that bad. But she mispronounced words constantly! This drove me crazy. It wasn't that she stumbled over words, she didn't even blink. Stayed in character and everything. And these weren't terribly difficult words either. Who knows what was going on with that. I realize it's not like spellcheck, but is there really no quality control?

    So yeah, wonderful characters, great story - kept me interested all the way through. Good plot twists. Smart book. I'll find more of Ms Busbee's to listen to. Definitely worth a credit.

    But really. VIS-count? Seriously?

    Story
    "Snip, Snip to the Bodice Ripper!!"

    I think the editor sleep through the book. It was waaaaaaay toooooo long! I actually looked at the publishing date of the book to find out if it was an old romance novel published in the days that were not PC. Nope I was wrong, it's a recent publish date. The sex scenes made me cringe; I had to fast forward over those. The narration was breathy and falsely dramatic. I did feel bad for Ms. Kinsolving, the book was so long it almost sounded like she was losing her voice at some points.

    I want to say something good about it too. The story might not of been too bad if the editor had done his/her job and cut some scenes and asked Ms. Busbee not to describe everything in such finite detail, like describing the food the butler brought in.

    Worth a credit? If you like long, tortuous romance books, hey give it go.

    Story
    "Hoodwinked by reviews"
    Would you try another book from Shirlee Busbee and/or Caroline Kinsolving?

    Not if it is like this one. I listened to this book thinking that it was going to get better, but it did not.


    What was most disappointing about Shirlee Busbee’s story?

    The main characters - both immature and really silly. He is mean, petty, judgemental and a jerk. She is ridiculous, indecisive, a "victim". The second part of this book is a total waste. If the book had stuck with only the first and third parts, I think I would rate it as tolerable.


    What about Caroline Kinsolving’s performance did you like?

    Her narration is what kept me wanting to continue to listen to this book


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger, frustration and annoyance.


    Any additional comments?

    Total waste of a credit!!!!!

    "I would like too see more of Shirlee Busbee"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Whisper To Me of Love to be better than the print version?

    Don't know, I love audible books!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The whole story was great!


    What does Caroline Kinsolving bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Well it was interesting and I wouldn't have accentuated certain sentences the way she did but whatever she was interesting enough.

    Story
    "AN ENJOYABLE REGENCY SAGA THAT PACKS A LOT IN"

    When you're about to invest 19 hours of your life to a historical romance you're hoping for it to be an action-packed, exciting, emotional, passionate, well-written story that contains vivid imagery and interesting well described characters. Well, if you're looking to be entertained by all these things, then look no further because this is one of those all-consuming stories.

    Royce, a handsome, rich, brooding American catches Pip, a little Street urchin, and starts off a chain of events that will have cataclysmic consequences that'll touch so many lives.... but especially their own. There's villains hidden within friends and family that hold secrets of betrayals, greed, danger and murder. But through the many twists and turns, conflicts and the constant 'push n pull' relationship between Royce and Pip she slowly transforms from a mere caterpillar into Morgana the beautiful butterfly. Along the way it awakens in them desire, sexual chemistry, longings, misunderstandings, sex (mild) and a passion that'll eventually lead to trust, understanding, love and a HEA will surely follow.

    Narrator's American accent came across as British, sometimes the characters were indistinguishable and the dialogue was slow in parts.

    Worth a credit? A daunting three part download that'll have you 'Pheeeweeeing' at the end but the journey you've just been on will have been entertaining, enjoyable and YES creditworthy.

    "Why?"
    Would you be willing to try another one of Caroline Kinsolving’s performances?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Why did they have a different narrator?! I don't know about this narrator.. she doesn't read as if there is life in her characters its like she's just reading the paragraphs in a monotone voice..she barely act out the characters in her voice...why didn't they get Ms. McNab to read this story?!
