Publisher's Summary

A hero of the crusades, Dominic le Sabre has returned in glory and in triumph to claim his reward: the beautiful Saxon bride awarded to him by the conqueror king. But Lady Margaret of the Blackthorne cannot yield to the bold Norman invader.

The beloved daughter of a sacred tribe of the Celtic mystics, she fears an ancient curse that could bring further turmoil to her battle-scarred land...and sorrow to her marriage bed.

With a word, the lady could turn her wedding into war. But there awaits in the noble knightᅵᅵs embrace a promise of passion unbound - and a love that neither violence nor treachery can tear asunder, a love both invincible and...untamed.

Not Bad BUT .......


For the genre it was quite good. Elizabeth Lowell is a good storyteller. It is a shame about the narrator.

The narration by Anne Flosnik wasn't too bad except her interpretations of male characters was absolutely deplorable - especially the main male character. It was embarrassing to listen to and I cringed everytime, especially during the love scenes. It is a shame because I quite liked her accent. I will think hard before listening to her again.

Good news that someone else is narrating the next book in the series. Hopefully it will be an improvement.

Very good story

Would you listen to Untamed again? Why?

Yes. I found the characters interesting and I enjoyed the story very much.

What did you like best about this story?

I love how the story ended. It left me wanting additional chapters or a sequel.

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

She used some voices I would have imagined the characters to have.

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

Time and again the action of unspoken love.

Story is good. Narrator is HORRIBLE!

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

This narrator makes dialog of young women sound like old men, young men sound like over dramatic thespians and the bad guys rasp and hiss like Gollum! Over-acted! I guess this one is just above this narrator's skill set. I wanted to give up after the first 2 hours!'

Would you be willing to try another one of Anne Flosnik’s performances?

NOOOO!

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

No.

Major narrator fail

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would not recommend this book to anyone. The narrator has totally ruined the experience for me because of the most boring narration and phony voices. I have had to stop repeatedly to brace myself to just listen to the STORY, not the narrator. I am appalled she was not stopped and told to begin this book again.

What do you think your next listen will be?

The Woman in White

What didn’t you like about Anne Flosnik’s performance?

Her horrible attempt at making a man sound "evil." She had three levels of inflection throughout the entire story, most of them a hoarse whisper. The levels never varied. I can talk about the mail being delivered with more enthusiasm, inflection, or variation in my speech.

Did Untamed inspire you to do anything?

Yes. It inspired me to write my first review. Sad that it had to be because the narration was so poor. The story was not much better.

Any additional comments?

I will be most cautious to make sure I do not get a book narrated by her again.

GOOD BEGINNING

Loved the story well written keeps you interested in the characters you want to root for the main characters. The narration was somewhat disappointing but would still highly recommend the book

Narrator ruins the experience

Almost through with this listen and feel like my throat is sore from listening to this reader rasp her way through this story. I like Elizabeth Lowell tremendously, but I will not ever listen to anything of hers or anyone's read by this person again. It is full on painful and simply ruined the recording for me.

One of my top 10

What made the experience of listening to Untamed the most enjoyable?

Everything, the story, the characters, era in which it was set .<br/>This is just an amazing story..

What other book might you compare Untamed to and why?

I can't think of one

Have you listened to any of Anne Flosnik’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I love Anne Flosnik as a narrator

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

I love books and some stories should stay as books. Movies just can’t portray the thoughts and character introspection

Any additional comments?

This worth the read.

Good Story

I love the narrator her ability to use her voice to bring life and heat to the charactors was wonderfl. Good story a bit predictable but endearing.
