I’m very particular about audio books and after I ran out of others to listen to, I decided to start on Beverly Jenkins’ historical novels. I’ve been reading them since I was a teenager and she is absolutely my favorite author. I love Mariah and Logan’s story and Alanza is by far one of my favorite characters.

My issue with this is totally the narrator. Why does Alanza sound like she had a stroke? It sounds as if the narrator has to think too hard on the accent. Spaniards speak fast so the accent completely throws me off. Maybe reading one of the southern accented books by BJ, Shari Peele would be better but this is honestly almost as bad as the narrator of Night Hawk. I almost don’t even want to finish listening.

Award-winning and best-selling author Beverly Jenkins delivers another satisfying and deeply emotional historical romance set during the Revolutionary War. Jenkins continues to win readers with her adventurous tales - where love and high stakes go hand in hand.

Beverly Jenkins is my 2nd favorite author and I have read lol of the historical things she’s written. This was my first audiobook and while I love the story just as much as when I read the book, the narrators voice was less than pleasing. The accents were atrocious and the character voices just through me for a loop. I’m going to try a different book to see if it’s better or if I just need to stick with the paperback books!
