Hmm, second times hearing this one. Story is good, but the narration is aweful. Sorry just done care for her. You get used to it to hear the story, there are better narrators out there.
Still I recommend this series.
I’d still use a credit for it.
It’s not the best book in the world but I like it well enough.

I broke the rules and stole an auction item from her buyers. Because somehow, they’d managed to abduct a Gryfala princess. Though, she doesn’t look, or act, or sound quite like I thought one of her kind would. But I’m merely a Rakhii gladiator; this is the closest I’ve actually ever been to a princess. I’d be considered lucky, indeed, if she chose me to guard her. Instead, I want more. I need her to claim me. Because she doesn’t know it, but now I can’t let her go.

I’ve tried for two months or more to get into this book. It just ain’t happening. I listen to it drone on and on about shit I don’t care about. It’s not an interesting story in the first place.
I thought to myself on Numerous Occasions “when will this crap get better or end. Gah!”

The narration is good but the story is crap.
But that’s just my opinion. I could be wrong.

Lots of emotion for me in this one. I just wanted to smack the main female, Maureen. Good thing she lived in the 1800s, cuz girls today would eat her alive and take that hunky man from her. Lol
Really, it’s a great series and one I will definitely hear again and again. Loved all of it and thought I had it figured out and BAM! Not who I thought it was. While it has sexy scenes, it’s not as descriptive as the other books. Has a great story and most all the other friends (characters) are known or mentioned and also gives clues as to who will have a book in the series. Or at least that’s what I believe.

Can a loving hand applied to the naked rear of a peevish woman sweeten her character? As a Georgian gentleman, Sir Thomas Wiggington expects to be master within his own home; after all, everyone knows that an Englishman's home is his castle. However, when he weds Lady Margaret Beauchamp, it appears that she has other ideas about who should be in charge. Thomas finds that his patience as a gentleman is sorely tried and tested.

Narration- bad, learn to pronounce the words correctly. It’s noticeable when one likes this time period and has heard them correctly for years. I will say he does fine with voice changes and lady voices are ok too. He has lots of potential and I’m sure it’s not an easy job.

No substance to the story, but I was just looking for a quick book from the erotica listings and this filled the bill.

Will read others by this author because sometimes this is what you need. Lol.

Narration—ok, but I wanted to smack him. He pronounced “Rye” through all the other books and “Ree” this time, bout drove me nuts. I know how Fleetwood Mac pronounce it. Lol

Story was good. I’ve noticed I enjoy the back story more than the main character story. Lol

I have found very few times that I wasn’t fond of the lead female. Well KB was on my smack the sh$& outta her list. Boo hoo he didn’t tell you he was a dragon. Give me a break, even Batman didn’t tell everyone everything.

And....I’m freakin sick of Ry and her dragon lover. Get over it. Gah!! Tell me if I have guessed already.

Excellent series!!! Will listen to again in the future. Now....on with the story.

This was a very good read. Loved it. Sweet romance, conflict, reconciliation, hot love scenes. I had to keep reminding myself that it was happening at the same time the others were finding their old ladies. That’s just my flaw. Lol. Im not a fan of different narrators for each book. I’m not a fan of dual narration. When I’m in a series I like to have their voices the same. I get the picture in my mind of the person then they have a freakin’ different voice in the next book , nah, not for me but I made it through.
I hope there is more in audio. Can’t wait.
The synopsis from the “back” of the book totally missed the mark in my opinion. Wish I would have never read that. Great book , credit worthy and a great series. A+
