On her own, Lucinda is a marvelous captivating storyteller!

Alex Wyndham brings her words to life via expressive narrative and varying intonations. He captures each character beautifully (including the female ones) adding depth to the listening experience.

Feisty Julia Faircloth is used to managing the lives of her eccentric relatives, so when darkly dangerous Lord Sebastian Trevarre arrives in Bath and proposes to her shy sister Sarah, she switches places with the bride to save her from a shockingly carnal wedding night. Against his better judgment, Sebastian consummates a marriage to the most provoking, appealing woman he's ever known, and then is forced to live with her in his neglected yet enchanting estate on the coast of Cornwall.

Beautifully narrated novel written by an amazingly talented writer!!
The narrator comes off as a but haughty at first, but as the story progresses she does a smooth beautiful job with the individual characters and their varying accents & genders, adding inflection and personality.

A charming story filled with complicated & interesting characters in a time period not easily visualized. Yet, Tanya does a lovely job bring the landscape, customs and lifestyle to life.

Regretfully, I am not a fan of the narrator. He was very inconsistent with his voices. Thus, if you are not compelled to listen please consider reading it instead.

Can the couple unite the slaves to escape the evil one? "The second book in Holland's The Gods Dream Trilogy lives up to the excellent first volume in the trilogy. A captured prince tortured by an evil god finds his soul mate in an Earth woman badly wounded in body and spirit." (Jacqueline Diamond)

Debra is a wonderfully gifted writer. Surfacing her characters deepest emotions and if they laughed and cried with the reader rather than on the page.

The narration is excellent, bringing to life Debra's alternate world, unfolding in my mind as if it were a movie.

If you could sum up Sower of Dreams in three words, what would they be?

Intriguing, detailed, wonderous

Any additional comments?

This story is like a handmade quilt… there are so many unique pieces when observed individually they may not seem significant or even that pretty but together they make the most alluring pattern that just makes sense. It draws you’re attention to the individual elements but also to the picture as a whole. Set in a foreign fantasy land yet stitched with pieces of the familiar, I felt as if I was there. Debra has woven a beautiful story with intricate detail and Noah help bring it to life; allowing the reader to share in the joy and pain of the characters. I look forward to reading the other books in the trilogy and definitely more from this author.

Nathan Raveneau, son of Andre & Devon (Silver Storm), is known as "The Scapegrace" in Regency London for his rakish exploits and devastating good looks. He is also a sea captain with an estate on Barbados. To gain land near his enemy, Xavier Crowe, Raveneau agrees to act as protector to headstrong Adrienne Beauvisage - and keep her chaste until her 21st birthday.

Adrienne is both outraged and intrigued by the man who calls himself Nathan Essex.

Another enveloping romantic story filled with laughter, mystery, intrigue, love and plenty of delicious romance!

Cynthia is a wonderfully gifted writer of whom I never tire reading. While this story is filled with its own charm, its change in setting just a small piece, she also pays homage to previous loved characters. There is never a dull moment.

The narrator is charming in her portrayal breathing life into each character. Her voice is beautiful wrapping the auditor and pulling them into the constant adventure.
Thank you Ladies!
