Maybe it's because I have been listening to audio books by Amanda Quick and Jennifer Crusie who are arguably better writers than Judith Ivory but I listened to the first half hour of this audio book and had to stop. It was written poorly, the characters were not interesting, and the narrator's accent was all over the place. I wouldn't recommend reading or listening to this author again.
