Publisher's Summary

1231 A.D.

After a nasty skirmish along the England/Scotland border at Bog Wood, a badly wounded knight has crawled off to die. As women from the Clan Scott fan out across the battlefield to collect the spoils of war, one woman breaks off from the pack. She is sickened by the tradition of stealing valuables off the dead and runs off to hide. In her hiding place, however, lingers the badly wounded knight. The young woman is frightened at first but her natural instinct to lend aid takes over. She tends the knight and saves his life. Little does the Lady Jordan Scott know that she has just saved the life of the dreaded English knight known to her people as The Wolf.

Beautiful Epic Romance

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. Once u set the audio speed to 1.25 the story flows and you get carried away into another time. Honestly this story is full of drama, romance and plenty of laughter. I listened to the 35 hour book over 3 days. That's how engaging the story was, with plenty of laugh out loud moments. This book was fun.

Who was your favorite character and why?

William and Jordan. The interaction between these two characters was hilarious. She had him wrapped around her little finger and he knew it. And I loved his reactions to her.

What about Guy Veryzer’s performance did you like?

There is something wrong with the audio speed, another reviewer mentioned it. When you first listen the voice is too slow and drags unnaturally. At 1.25 speed on the audible apps settings the readers voice is perfect. I found him engaging and fun to listen to. And his portrayal of the different characters was wonderful. I loved his William and Paris especially.

Any additional comments?

The size of this audiobook is really like 3 books in one. I loved the length of this book. It gives the story and characters time to develop. Honestly if you love Historical Romance, you'll love this.

Wonderful audiobook

Would you consider the audio edition of The Wolfe to be better than the print version?

It's as good as the print version.

Just couldn't finish this one.

I couldn't get past the narrator. My goodness the first chapter was long and drawn out. The further I got the worse it got.

LE VEQUE AT HER FINEST

Would you listen to The Wolfe again? Why?

I would listen to this novel again and again and again. This is the best of the best in Le Veque's long list of novels. Five star novel with everything you could want in a historical romance novel: love, action, adventure, political intrigue, sex and knights battling to the end.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

While you want to listen to this all in one sitting, you just have to be patient and do it in stages from the sheer length of the story. You can't wait to get back to it!

I didn't make it an hour!

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I thought the narrator's voice was a joke at first. I kept waiting....it was no joke. I really wanted to listen to this book! I guess I will read it instead! I want a refund!

What could Kathryn Le Veque have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

A different narrator.

Would you be willing to try another one of Guy Veryzer’s performances?

NO!

I loved it!!!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This book has such a strong plot, rich in the history this series creates. The voice of the narrator takes that story and heats it up to a whole other level. Guy Veryzer is the best. He brought the story to life. A must read for Medieval Lovers!

Story kept me interested; grammar made me cringe

I rate Ms. Le Veque's books so high because she's head and shoulders above most of the historical romance writers - she has interesting characters and plots as well as romance. That said, however, I am very annoyed by beautiful obnoxious female heroines. To paraphrase Judge Judy, "Pretty fades; stupid lasts forever." Jemma never improved for me.

The incorrect grammar should have been fixed when the book was proofread by the publisher's office and caught before the book ever made it to audio. The constant incorrect use of nominative and objective pronouns - which I had to learn in the 7th grade - is extremely irksome. All you have to do to spot an incorrect objective pronoun is to flip the order, e.g., the incorrect "between you and I" flips to" between I and you," which just doesn't sound right. So it should be "between you and me" (which flips to "between me and you" and doesn't sound awkward).

review of the wolfe

What did you love best about The Wolfe?

I just really loved the story the intrigue, plot twists, characters, the strong friendships and lastly the love stories! I have purchased the kindle edition, the paperback and now to have the audiobook is just fabulous to listen to as well. The hero William de Wolfe and the heroine Jordan Scott are also such wonderful characters that I just instantly adored them! There is such strong character development of the hero, heroine and even some of the minor characters that you can easily imagine everyone that they almost seem real!

What does Guy Veryzer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I at first didn't think Mr. Guy Veryzer voice fit with the character of William de Wolfe but as the story progressed I could easily see his voice for some of the other characters and he even voiced the women fairly well. When I imagined two of the women Jemma Scott and Aloria I just could see that his voice fit for them. Mr. Guy Veryzer voice seemed more fitting as Paris or Kieran. I think the less I tried to just picture his voice fitting the characters and pay more attention to the story made me much happier. Mr. Guy Veryzer had an almost soothing calming tone to his voice but his voice didn't sound monochromatic either. There was definite distinction and separation between plot points and other characters.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When the heroine Jordan learns of William's injury leaving him near death and her insistance to go and take care of him. In her explanation to the king of why she is there and her dogged determination to save William not only moves me to read it in the kindle edition but to listen to it as well. Even Mr. Veryzer voice sounded a bit sorrowful but somewhat seemingly resolute in intonation.

Any additional comments?

I am glad that this novel of Ms. Le Veque is now in audio book despite not liking Mr. Guy Veryzer voice at first the storyline is fantastic and I did stop trying to picture who his voice sounded more like growing to like his voice as just the narrator as the story progressed.

I tried but just could not finish

What did you like best about The Wolfe? What did you like least?

I liked the plot and the storyline, but the narrator spoilt it for me

How could the performance have been better?

The narration was very slow, I don't know if this is a problem with the recording or the narrator, but even trying to listen to this book on a faster speed, made it sound like a robot. I felt like the narrator did not enjoy reading this book as the was no life nor feeling in this narration.

Any additional comments?

I have listened a few of Kathryn Le Venue's books and am now a great fan, I was really looking forward to listening to this book, but the narration just spoilt it for me, would like to see the narration fixed, as I would still like to listen to this book

Is this narrator a computer?

The story. Is brilliant and extremely enjoyable.

I had to read this story as I couldn't not stomach the narrator, I am sure it was a computer programme reading this. This thoroughly ruined the book for me. Please consider having this re-narrated.

Loved the extra long story

It's refreshing to come across a story with a substantial word count and character development. On the downside, Lady Jordan was often too stupid to live and so story could become hard to listen to. On the whole it's still worth listening to.
