Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes great book with lots of excitement. Love historical fiction
Who was your favorite character and why?
Oh that's a hard one. I love Tess because she is strong through so much tragedy, she is someone I could look up to. Then I love Ian just as much. He shows you what a true man is all about when it comes to loving, caring towards Tess.
Which scene was your favorite?
Hmm another hard one. Even though Tess has a brother who wants to take the ranch he still feels pulled to take care of her so even though she was knocked out he went back to check on her. I also love chapter 28 and on. So much action it was hard not to listen.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes very much so. I actually listened to 28 Chapters in one day then finished the last 4 chapters the next morning.
Any additional comments?
I absolutely love Holly Adams for the Narrator. She was amazing and made the story so rea.

Any additional comments?
I wanted to like Tess; I really did. Her constant hand-wringing and second guessing got on my nerves and her treatment of Franklin was abominable. We are supposed to let that go (I guess) because Franklin is not the love interest. However, Tess left Franklin at the alter (after agreeing to marrry him) and then walked out on him again (after agreeing to marry him.) That's cruel and heartless, Christian or not.
The story had a great beginning and you got a sense of the bad guy very early on. There were some continuity issues though. One paragraph would shift from Tess being in town to the next paragraph having her back on the ranch with no mention of how she got there. It could have been a chapter break but it wasn't narrated that way so it was jarring when it happened.
Still, it was a good story with a very pleasant narrator. I just like my heroines with a bit more backbone.

This plot has the female protagonist as both strong and needy, quite the combination . The plot held my attention as I waited to see what comes next.
The narration was very well done.
