We joyfully request your attendance at the wedding of Miss Angelica Cynster... but not until she and her hero lay to rest an ancient grudge in the Scottish Highlands!

Headstrong Angelica Cynster is certain she'll recognize her fated husband at first sight. And when her eyes meet those of a mysterious nobleman, she knows beyond a doubt that he's the one. But her heart is soon pounding for an entirely different reason - when her hero abducts her!

The eighth Earl of Glencrae has no choice but to kidnap Angelica, the one Cynster sister with whom he hadn't wanted to tangle. But to save his castle and his clan, he must persuade her to assist him - and he's prepared to offer marriage to seal the deal!

Savor another Cynster novel.

    "Great series"

    I was happy to find this on Audibles, I have read the other books in this series and found this one to be just as good. I like that Stephanie Laurens' female leads are smart and quick minded. It is so much fun reading her writing and the performance was done perfectly.

    "Can't take narrator anymore!"

    I'm sure Matthew Brenher tries but I can no longer buy any more Stephenie Lauren's books read by him. Every one I've listened to so far I have been unable to finish. His voice lacks passion or dramatic expression. His portrayal of women's voices is grating and evincing constant winces that jar one from the story. I have tried faster speeds but nothing seems to make it easier on the ears.

    It is also unfortunate that the director and producer have not realized (or did not care enough about the book's value to know) the background of the characters, the pronunciation of names and the accents they should have from previous books in this series. There has now been more than a few books of this series read by (not performed by) Matthew Brenher and not one person has thought to do their homework nor read the customer reviews as to what went wrong and taken steps to correct future production of Stephanie Lauren's books. Perhaps it's time for her to take her business elsewhere? As for me, I will stick to her print versions from now on. Truly a sad and frustrating day.

    "Excellent!"

    The reason I love this book is the way Ms . Laurens writes her love scenes. You can read the love scene without squirming. The language is beautifully written and gets the feelings across quite nicely without using some very uncomfortable words.
    All of Ms. Laurens' stories are beautifully done and keeps you glued to the pages until the very end. I can really recommend all of Ms. Laurens books as great reads.

    "Disappointing performance"
    What disappointed you about The Capture of the Earl of Glencrae?

    I have been hooked on Stephanie Lauren's Cynster series for years and realized, for the first time that what I truly enjoyed was Simon Prebble's reading. This time I could barely manage to listen to the end; Matthew Brenher was utterly disappointing - made the story seem quite boring.
    Alas, it seems Mr. Prebble has moved on to other authors and in my opinion it is Ms. Laurens's loss.


    What was most disappointing about Stephanie Laurens’s story?

    The performer.

    "Thought it would never end."

    The story line wasn't bad, but it was really drawn out. I had to make myself finish the book several times and it took me weeks to finish it. I wasn't fond of Angelica (the main female character) at first, but she grew on me as the story line developed. The main male character had no real personality. Maybe that was partly due to the performance, but definitely not all. I'm not sure I would recommend this to anyone. Maybe if it were free or on sale, but I wouldn't waste a credit or buy it at full price.

    "Great way to relax and unwind."
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Capture of the Earl of Glencrae to be better than the print version?

    Both versions are wonderful, but the audio edition is my favorite because I can actually close my eyes and imagine the story. It's nice to just lie back and let someone tell you a story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The Earl, of course. He has been reviled in the earlier books of the series as a kidnapper, someone to be caught and imprisoned. In this story you get to actually find out what drives him and why he has behaved the way he has.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene at the waterfall at the end. It's tense and suspenseful.

    "anti-climactic"

    so much anticipation with this and it just popped into place very nicely from the first page. what was the point? the build up of the 2 was very flat. no development or tension. what a waste of a hero!! and looking for a goblet - are we still Grimms fairytales? really lame. also it was not a believable story with 3 kidnappings etc. there should have been a little more meat on the bone.
    shame as it could have been sooo muh better.
    Ms. laurens - a little more planning for the next one please!

    I am quiet and love being comfortable. I love curling up in a corner either reading or listening to a nice romantic book.

    "Fabulous!!!!"

    This book I must say was surpisingly delicious! It was an absolute delight compared to the two previous in this series. Stephanie did a great job with this book which in my eyes made up for the first two books! It also ended really well, I was so happy we got to experience the wedding and not just wonder if they happened and when. The narrator also did well enough, I would have loved Simon Pebble to have read but Antony did a good job. I would recommend anyone to read/listen to this trilogy.

    "Enjoyable read"

    I always enjoy Stephanie Laurens novels. She supplies romance, wit and humor in her stories. Although Matthew Brenher is a fabulous narrator, I prefer female narrators for romance novels.
