Publisher's Summary

Virginia Henley's historical romances have won praise for their ability to "illuminate and entertain" (Publishers Weekly).

It is 1322, and the Marcher lords are rebelling against King Edward II. Lady Brianna de Beauchamp, daughter of a powerful Marcher, knows she should not involve herself in the battle. But when she meets dangerously handsome Wolf Mortimer, who has the gift of second sight, she cannot deny her passions.

Very sweet...

Though I found the narrator's voice a bit annoying at first, the story itself was so good, it took over for me. I knew a little bit of Isabella's history so it was a nice surprise to have her story as a backdrop.

Couldn't even listen to the first 50 minutes

Horrible reader!

I have never given a book such a low review...but I tried several times and couldn't get past the TERRIBLE voices! The WORSE. The main female character's voice sounded like that of a cartoon 3 year old! The handsome "wolf" sounded like the craggy old bridge keeper from the old monthy python film. For that matter so did ALL the males.

Just the thought of that little child's voice being romantically involved with that of the craggy old man made me sick to my stomach, regardless of how old the author wrote them to be.

It might be a great story but I'll never know because the voices and reading was just so bad... I wish I could get my credits back on the listen.

TERRIBLE... is the only word for it.
