Publisher's Summary

Severin of Langthorne returns to his family's estate to find his family and land in ruin. His father and brother dead, his mother demented, he is the new Baron Louges, an empty title due to the destruction of his world.

Meanwhile the Earl of Oxborough, Fawke of Trent, has selected Severin to marry his daughter and only heir. While his new place in society seems enviable, his new wife detests him. The ill-matched marriage, coupled with "Rosehaven", the mysterious property in which they live, presents a challenge once again for Severin.

Very good read!

I have read some of the other reviews and I can't seem to understand why everyone is getting their panties in a bunch! Like some of the other reviewers wrote, look at the timeline to which the book is coming from. It was a very different lifestyle to where we are today. In that life, us females were not given a choice on husbands, they were chosen and demanded that we had to marry that person. Don't do it and you are either chastised, beaten or disowned by your family. Anyhow, I actually had a great time listening to this book as with all the other Song Series and Catherine is one of my favorite authors. I can't wait for another and hope that she have some other lost soul (men) that needs a strong woman to stand by him and put him in his place.

I'm proper title!

Why is it called Rosehaven when we the readers are never taken there. Unless, you will complete this in a PT 2. Three keeps and none was Rosehaven? Bah!

Narrator ruins another one

When the narrator reads the characters like whining mewling airheads, or a 25 year old guy like a crotchety old man and mispronounces a characters name the whole book it’s hard to to not be distracted by it. I mean, how could the producer allow the name issue! I don’t understand.

Rapey

What did you like about this audiobook?

Anne Flosnik is a great performer. Her subtle changes between characters is clear, her pronunciation stunning, and her pitch only occasionally drops into the comical "deep voice because I am a manly man" theatrics so many other performers rely on in reading romance novels.

How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

Well, I would be interested in learning more about medieval uses of herbs. There is a lot of cooking, eating, potion making and doctoring between long drawn out bouts of spousal rape.

Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

The subject matter seems reasonably well researched, with certain glaring exceptions. For example, I am pretty sure cotton socks would be an unheard of luxury in 13th century England.

What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

The extremely precise RP pronunciation occasionally feels a little affected, but better too crisp than sloppy.

Do you have any additional comments?

This would actually be a cut above the average historical romance in terms of research, dialogue, and story if not for the basic premise being " Rape is ok and leads to love"

Always a favorite

I first read Rosehaven when i was a young teenager. Ive always taken to revisiting Hastings and Severin once a year. Now with audible i can listen while i sew or knit. I found the voice actress perfect. I absolutely loved every minute. I highly recommend it. Ill surely be listening to it again one day.
