In one week, Princess Ro'sa will board a spaceship, leaving her home on Minjet to be with her betrothed on Earth. The only problem is, she detests the prince's selfish and arrogant ways, preferring to spend time with his personal aide, a man who stirs her desires in ways she never imagined possible with his radiant blue eyes and smoldering lips. And oh, the way he touches her.
Earth's post-apocalyptic landscape offers little, but the alliance offers much, and a princess must do her duty, no matter the danger to her person and to her heart.
It's taken me a long time to listen to this audio book, mainly because of problems with my audible account. But I finally got them resolved and I'm so glad that I got to listen to this.
First of all let me give the narrator a full house of applause. Jon Filipko's narration was faultless. He has such a dreamy, sensual tone to his voice that pulls you in and keeps you listening right from the book title to the final words 'the end.' He was able to mimic the female characters as well as different male characters making it easy for me to picture them all in my head. I'm looking forward to more books with his narration.
About the story itself, my response is wow! As I mentioned already once I started listening, I just couldn't put this down. I practically ignored everyone else in the house for the 2 hours it took me to listen to this. Aren't headsets a wonderful invention? *grins*
Seriously this is a fabulous scifi interpretation of a fairy tale about arranged marriages, and mistaken identity. Even in a quick listen like this, it's packed with great characters, sizzling romance and thrilling action. This story has put this author in my must-read list. I loved this story so much I've just pre-ordered her upcoming 1Night Stand box set. I know you'll love it too. Go and grab your copy. A Fabulous audiobook.
I liked this twist on a fairytale. It wasn't as dirty as I thought it would be & I would have preferred to have a woman narrate Rosa's POV but aside from that I thought it was an interesting spin. There was tension and suspense, laughter and sexy bits. This was my first audiobook so I wasn't sure what to expect. I enjoyed it.
I loved the fantasy of this book. Although it was a novella, you get a mostly complete story with great detail. We have Earth dying and a princess from a foreign land who is said will save Earth upon her arrival. From the details of the other land to the fated marriage this is a great read. I liked the bits of angst built in of forbidden love while they lasted.
As far as the narration, I am not crazy about him. I think that I would have much rather read than audio'd this one!
