I so enjoy this book

I have listened to this book at least 3 times now. I love this time travel book. I probably enjoy listening because of Steve West. But his female voice still sounds like a male trying to be female. Again I wonder why this could not have been a dual narration. Then it would have been perfect.

Just get it A+

Narrator: Steve West did a pretty good job.
Really Enjoyed it. Worth the credit!
One heck of a great book!
It is exactly a Knight in Shining Armor story. A very well done time traveling story.
At first I thought I was going to return it. The way Dougless (the heroine) was rambling on and letting Robert and his daughter abuse her I thought boy what kind of book is this. But I am really glad I stuck with it the story really takes off at the little church when Nicholas steps in.

Amazing!!

I highly recommend this book!! I have read only one book by Jude Deveraux, but this book from beginning to end was so enjoyable. The narrator, with his deep English accent, was most perfect. I have been an audible subscriber for years, but this book blew me away.

Magical time travel times two

Which scene was your favorite?

My favorite is when Douglas has been turned out and she finds Nicholas soaping up in the fountain in the middle of the night.

Any additional comments?

I love any Jude Deveraux book, she never disappoints but this one is my favorite still. I love the connection of the two main characters and that their love is so strong even time is no obstacle.

A Knight in shining armor

I liked the story but,did not like the man reading the book . well reading it for the male parts was ok but, for Douglas he made her sound like a crazy Transvestite and it was almost to annoying to listen too. and I guess it was not just Douglas but, all the females.

Needs a female narrator.

Hated narrator's interpretation of Douglas: too little girlish & weak. Nicholas came off as pompous.
