I really liked this book... it didn't need to be so long... not by half. Yet the time literally flew by. This works well as a stand alone novel but ..Show More »I highly recommend you listen to the series in order... (Each book gives away the one before!)
The characters aren't all fluff, the heroine is flawed in her own way and the hero has much to work out on his own. All the characters have distinct personalities which are easy to get to know... kind of like making friends. There is humor and heartache and many facets to spark and shine.
Dare I hope to see Daphne's story arrive to audible soon? I have much enjoyed the three to date. Altho' I hope they choose another narrator.
NARRATOR : Justine Eyre is not one of my favorites. Her style of delivery makes getting going with the listen a little rough until I stopped hearing her and just heard the story. Quite often I noticed the male voices.... they just seem much older than they are. All in all not bad, just not one I rush to listen to. I often choose one with a different narrator first... depending on whose work is available. (I have almost all the historical romances other than early american) I see many a review saying this narrator ruined a otherwise good book. I personally don't feel that strongly.
CREDITWORTHY? : yes... BUT listen to the sample to hear the narrator first.
HEAT FACTOR: Slightly steamy.... appropriate to the story, not graphic, but still quite 'warm'.
