Publisher's Summary

Lady Catherine Langdon is special, and not because she's the daughter of a duke. She comes from a long line of individuals born with extraordinary gifts, and she is one of the few who has a variation of all three. On the brink of war, she makes a decision that will irrevocably alter the course of her life - love or duty.

Asher Rossington, the marquess of Seabrook, decided at a very early age he would not live an idle life. His father forbade him from being a spy for the crown, but he chose to ignore it. Ash never regretted his choice but wished he could have repaired his relationship with his father before he died. Now, with the fate of the world in turmoil, he has to make another hard decision - remain a spy for king and country or go home and honor his father's title.

The Great War brings Catherine and Asher into each other's lives. Only time will tell if their destiny is to be together or if they will ultimately serve a higher purpose.

Charming Historical Romance

I received a free copy of this book. I voluntarily left this review. All opinions expressed herein are my own.

This is the 10th book in the series Enduring Legacy. I have not read any of the prior books in the series. In my opinion, this is a standalone book and can be read without reading any of the prior books in the series. Some of the reviewers mentioned that there are character crossovers within the series and it is good to know how everyone fits into the series. I don't feel like a missed anything not knowing the background of every character in the book, however, other readers may find this important and want to start with the first book in the series. Having said that [or written it], I am certainly interested after reading this book to go back and read the previous books.

The book starts just prior to WWI. Lady Catherine attends a dinner where she meets Asher Rossington, a marquee. As they slowly begin to get to know one another and form a bond, they are separated by the War. Catherine decides to become a nurse for the wounded soldiers and Asher becomes a spy. The action picks up during the War, as each character deals with their own trials and with the hope of seeing each other again. I really liked the character Lady Catherine -- especially for the time period, she is a very strong and forthright woman who asserts her opnions when she feels it necessary. Lady Catherine also has a gift for foretelling the future - which was used effectively several times throughout the book to foreshadow coming events.

The narrator, Price Waldman, has the perfect voice for this book. He sounds somewhat aristocratic and utterly charming as he narrates the story.

Another winner by Brower!

A wonderful love story with the Great War providing a tumultuous backdrop of intrigue and romance.Lady Catherine Langdon is a strong and likable heroine. She wants to be more than a duke's a daughter. She wants to do something meaningful with her life. When the Great War begins, she finds her calling in a nurse's uniform. I enjoyed the magical threads of Catherine's special gift that were woven into the story.
Asher Rossington, the marquess of Seabrook, also wants to do more than run an estate and assume the title. Against his father's will, he spies for the government. And then when his father dies, he is never able to make peace with him. Asher is a hero in the truest sense and fell for him right away.
The secondary character are interesting and well developed. Oh, and I personally loved the cat. Price did another spot-on job bringing this story life.

Historical romance with some paranormal

I really liked this book except for the sex scene which really surprised me because the story has a sweet feel to it since it is based on romance and not sexual tension so when that happened I was shocked. I felt that it was put in for the sake of it. The book was doing fine without it, I didn't feel it needed it.
I did like some of the secondary characters and the relationship between the cousins, they made me laugh.
There is some violence.

I loved it!

Charming her Rogue by Dawn Brower is a wonderful listen. It takes place during WWI, which I am not as familiar with the time period. I thought the narration by Price Waldman was fantastic. He brought the characters to life. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I found this book to be a great standalone listen and part of a series. I will definitely listen to more books by this author and narrator.

Less captivating than expected...

It's a difficult book for me to rate... On the one hand, it has all the elements that should make it a wonderful listen: likeable main characters that you really keep your fingers crossed for and the background of the Great War that should give the story the depth I like in books, but... somehow the story lacks tension. The potential of the historical background is lost in all the mumblings and ramblings of "she/he's the one, I should tell her/him I love her/him"... I know it's supposed to be a romance, but still, I'd like more action and less talking... I kind of felt like I was listening to Grandma Cat and Grandpa Ash telling their grandchildren of how they had fallen in love during the Great War while censoring all the harsher parts of what that time was like.

Catherine possesses some unusual gifts - visions, premonitions, empathy - but besides the two visions and a mention or two of the fact that she uses empathy to help the wounded soldiers we do not really feel that she is special... Ash is supposedly the rogue mentioned in the title of the book - but there's nothing roguish about him at all; throughout the book he stays the same warm, loyal and determined man we meet at the beginning. But the biggest fault of the book for me? The Great War was a horrible time of unimaginable sufferings, a war the kind of which had never been experienced by humanity before - and yet it doesn't show at all in the book. Yes, there are wounded soldiers Catherine attends to, yes, there are two bombings mentioned with ONE death casualty that slightly matters for the story, yes, Cat and Ash are caught and imprisoned by the enemy - but not one of these things feels terrible, horrible, mind-shattering...They feel like minor obstacles on the path of love, as if the author needed just some historical events (whatever they might have been) to almost artificially keep the main characters apart to allow them to "suffer" from unfulfilled love, about which they ramble on and on and on in exaltation typical of a fifteen-year-old...

I'm sorry to be so harsh, but I really wanted to like the book more as I did like both Cat and Ash and their love-story. I just feel the book would be a lot better if we had more of what happened to Ash and Cat and the people around them and how the war really affected their minds and psyche and less of "oh, how much I love him/her, I wish I was with him/her now"...The book definitely needs a shift from focusing on feelings to focusing on the great though tragic period in history - the rule of "say too little rather than too much" should definitely be applied here...

As for the interpretation by Mr Waldman, I generally liked it, but again I felt there's a bit too much exaltation in his reading. However, with the text he had been given to read what he did with the book is a great job. He does some of the voices perfectly, both male and female, but he's a bit overemotional in some narrative parts.

Great Listen!

I really enjoyed the story, it was very well written. There were so many ups and downs, you couldn’t guess how the story was going to end. The narrator did a very good job bringing out the feel of the story, and portraying characters. Overall, amazing!

A good novel with a front row view to WWI

"I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review." This was a very good book revolving around Lady Catherine Langdon. Bored with society and secretly training as a nurse, Lady Catherine joins in helping the injured during World War I. The story follows Catherine's experience and her fallng in love with a soldier she meets. Price Waldman does a wonderful job narrating. I really enjoyed this book and will be reading more of Dawn Brower's books.

Makes Me Happy

I have not read any of the previous books in this series and that didn't make any difference, if they are like this one they can each stand alone. This book is not in a genre that I would typically listen too but the cover caught my eye and the blurb sounded interesting and I'm so glad it did. This audiobook just makes me happy. The narrator has a great voice and I very much enjoyed his performance. I am not a history buff nor do I typically read period romance novels but I really enjoyed the WWI setting and what it brought to the story. The loved the characters both main and supporting and all the little side stories peppered throughout the book. I typically listen to longer more detailed audiobooks but this one really is a great quick listen and I would definalty consider listening to more of the authors work in the future. (Exspecially if she uses this same narrator!) I was given a copy of this audiobook in return for an honest review. All opinions and thoughts are my own.
