This Story Is Seductive

Publisher's Summary

She shouldn't be here. She can't even recall how she got here.

Except for the dream. Mya Boyle remembers the dream. She knows it's somehow connected to her past, her present and the future.

Mya woke one morning in a field, a stag grazing close by as if it didn't even notice her. She lay bare, like a babe from the womb, except for a wool blanket wrapped around her tightly.

A grown woman with no memory, no family, no money, nothing. Kayden McGregor found her while hunting. He was after the stag and nearly shot her with his arrow instead. Unable to leave her to the wolves of his clan, he took her to his home.

He resents her. She can't bear to look at him. Or stop herself from staring when he doesn't notice. Trapped, and yet somehow destined to be together.

Remember enough of the past...and you may be able to control your future.

worst attempt at Scottish accent

the reading was either stilted and sounded very fake and forced or felt rushed. And the attempt at a Scottish accent was one of the worst I've ever heard. It doesn't sound Scottish or British at all. It sounds like strange stilted speech.

Narrator should not try Scottish accent

While she has a nice voice she should not attempt accents. Her attempt sounded like a Swede one moment to become a cowboy the next and sometimes totally forgetting about an accent. The storyline was good but I didn’t think I could listen to a sequel if the narrator stays the same.

Worst fake accent EVER

This was a complete miss for me. The narrator had the worst Scottish accent I've ever heard. It was so bad there was no way I could take this seriously. I will not be continuing this series. Cliffhanger or not.

If you can't do an accent-

Don't do the accent!! Interesting take on time travel romance, part of a longer story, told in snippets of time. A little hard to follow. Mostly hot sex.

Eh

I made it to chapter 5, and just couldn't go any further. She wakes up naked and with no memories? I'd assume that she'd be terrified, but it doesn't take long before she's having sexual fantasy about the grumpy Highlander who's helping her, instead of focusing on her predicament. It just doesn't scream readable plot to me.

I do like a little smut with a plot, not a little bit of plot with a whole lot of smut. So this was definitely not going in the right direction for me.

In regards to the narrator performance, I just couldn't get past the flat, monotone voice. Is Mya supposed to speak with an American accent? Wouldn't that have been something immediately pointed-out as strange? And her male Scottish accent was quite bad. The writing can also be blamed for Kayden's character coming off as completely false, as the terms he used weren't true to the era or region.

Maybe it would have gotten better...? But I don't have the patience to keep going. I gave it 3 stars instead of 2 for that reason.

Narrator was horrible!!!

I would've scored less if it was possible. The narrator was terrible which made me not able to enjoy or get into the story. I actually listened to full story but can only remember bits of the story...never hire this narrator again for a Scottish story!!!!

A different kind of time travel

This book is different than other time travel books but that is what I liked about it. I agree with other reviewers about the narrators when they say that her Scottish accent was not the best, it sounded more like a virginia/north Dakota mix. I think that she did a great job for the female role her accent was perfect if they would have made a two person narration it would have been better.
I also think that 5 books was too many and could have been fewer.

My complaints are minimal and to be honest didn't affect my enjoyment in this book. I would suggest it to anyone who enjoys time travel romance books.

Can't Finish

To be honest I couldn't finish the book. The narrators voice drove me crazy. She would go in and out of a southern and irish accent when the characters are both Scottish. Stopped and started this book multiple times to get through it and just could not pay attention to the story line do to the narrator. May be better to get read this one.

Keep going..

I agree with all other reviewers the narrative is not so good Scottish accent is horrible. Lots an lots of sex. I had to fast forward through them just to get to the story. Now I'm down for sex scene however I don't believe it should over power the story. It is an excellent story though. I was confused on the whole time travel part I don't thing that's explained well? The ending was a little shocking an the next book has no reviews but I'm going for it bad narrative an all!...

Unfortunate

The story line was good. The narration was terrible. Narrator couldn't successfully imitate a highlander's speech. It was rushed and went in between the brogue and english.
