It’s been my experience with many book series, that each successive book is better. Not the case with this series as I started with 4 and went back to the beginning and found them equally good! So glad to have found this author and this series. As always, Tim Campbell ‘s narration was outstanding! I could listen to him all day long!

But now, Gavin wants to put his shady past behind him...more or less. When a fiery lass who is the heiress to the land he wishes to possess drops into his lap, he sees a perfectly delicious opportunity.

Wow! Kerrigan Byrne just keeps getting better. I absolutely loved this book! The narration by Derek Perkins put it over the top. Hoping there will be more books in the series. Will definitely be listening to this one again.

He made a vow to fetch the woman back through time. 'Twas a task not taken lightly. But he had not predicted her stubbornness or her beauty. The petite woman with the tenacity of a mule may just find a way into his roguish heart.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Yes. I enjoyed the story but would have been more so with a better narrator.

If you’ve listened to books by Jo Barrett before, how does this one compare?

I absolutely loved the first book in the series! This one was enjoyable but conversations between the two lead characters seemed kind of stilted and the women seemed more male than female.

Would you be willing to try another one of Allison Cope’s performances?

No! Her performance was awful.

Did Rogue's Challenge inspire you to do anything?

No.

What did you love best about Morna's Legacy Set #1?

The stories keep you involved to the very end. Can't wait to start the next set.

What other book might you compare Morna's Legacy Set #1 to and why?

I would say these are similar to the "highlander" books by Maya Banks. Engrossing stories and characters you like. Highly entertaining.

What about Lily Collingwood’s performance did you like?

Lily Collingwood did an excellent job! I will definitely be looking for other books that she has narrated.
