Publisher's Summary

Listeners from coast to coast have fallen in love with her strong, forceful heroes and fiery heroines. Now award-winner Miriam Minger sweeps you into a world of epic adventure and bold passion in the O'Byrne Brides Series!

Wild Angel - Ronan was a legend among men...and the last thing he needed was a troublesome woman. Yet this fierce Irish warrior took a deathbed oath to protect a chieftain's rebellious daughter.

Triona was a hellion of a woman...who would let no man rule her. Raised in the ways of a warrior, she defied Ronan's every command. So he planned to marry her off, to be rid of the wild lass forever. But in the heat of battle - enflamed by her passionate spirit - Ronan decided he wanted this beautiful, impossible woman for himself!

Very good Irish historical romance

I really liked this book! Yes our heroine Triona was immature at times but still this story has the three elements I need to have on historical romances in order to like them: interesting adventure, hot romance and great narration. This book had all three so I do recommend it if you like Irish/highlander historical romances.

Decent but dragging

This book is okay, at first I really liked the main character but about halfway through I started to find her trying and unnecessarily rude and callous

Great narrator, not sure on the story

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

Not really. I did not like the leads at all. It just wasn't the right fit for me.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The setting is lovely. I wish I could come across more romances with an Irish flair!

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

She does a wonderful job with the voices and has a great pace. She is the reason I kept listening long after I was tired of the story. She is definitely a credit to this book.

What would have made this romance irresistible?

A heroine who wasn't so whines and annoying? Sorry, she really was not a favorite of mine.

Wonderful Irish Historical Romance

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

N/A I've not read the print version

What was one of the most memorable moments of Wild Angel?

I enjoy the swim in the loch as Ronnan, Treaona, and Nile return to the stronghold.

Which character – as performed by Elizabeth Klett – was your favorite?

I enjoyed the attitude and wonderful Irish lilt that Ms Klett put into the voice of Treaona.

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

Battles rage everywhere in Ireland! Between the English Crown and the Irish. Between clans. And between the dark Irish Chieftain of clan O'Byrne and the firey haired adopted daughter of the head of clan O'Toole. And who will win which battles? Only time and love will tell.

A good story, loved the narrator

When Ronan finally gets forgiveness from his foster father, he thinks he will be back in the good graces of the clan, but when Triona, the adopted daughter of the chief becomes his problem, it makes a really good story. She hates him, he only wants to get rid of her. Elizabeth Klett did a wonderful job with the accents and timing of the reading. A good audio book, I enjoyed it a lot.

Wonderful Irish Historical Novel Finally on Audio!

Any additional comments?

Wild Angel is a historical romance originally written in 1994 by Miriam Minger. I love historical romance novels, especially Irish/highlander romances set in the 12th and 13th centuries. This novel and audio book did not disappoint. The heroine is a feisty, head strong, red headed warrior and the hero is an "alpha male" Irish rebel who can't help but fall in love with the lass.

The story begins when Chieftain Fineen O'Toole finds 6 month old Triona in the arms of her dead Norman mother in the middle of the forest. He adopts her knowing that a Norman clan wants her dead. She grows up a happy little girl, following underfoot of her older brother Conor and Fineen's Godson, Ronan O'Byrne. After Conor's death at the hands of the Normans, and on Fineen's own deathbed, he makes Ronan vow to become Triona's guardian. He does so, planning to marry her off as soon as possible. In true historical romance fashion, Ronin is jealous of anyone who even looks at Triona, and over time learns to respect her unbreakable spirit.

Elizabeth Klett’s narration is simply fantastic. She really brings the characters to life, giving each character their own distinct voice. She is also able to switch genders and generations with ease.

Simply put, Wild Angel is a wonderful historical romance that lasts the test of time. I highly recommend it!

spiteful bitch?????

The way Angela Dawe delivered Trionna had her come off as a truly unlikeable spiteful bitch... but I don't think that was how the written words were meant... The narrator is stellar but the attitude of the one character was SO extreme that I was actually hating her and had to remind myself to hear the words not the speaking... Wonderful book.... but for that one thing.
Credit worthy? Yes!
Heat factor? Verrry low but for a few moments of extreme.
Tears? Not for me...
Laughter? A few good chuckles to be sure.
Violence? Not like most... very little of the bloody battles actually.

Narrator's voice is too soft

Story was good, but the narrator's voice was too soft and her characters voices were not consistent.

Bratty and spoiled is not a strong character.

I couldn't get very far in the book because the heroine was such a pill. I couldn't stand her. The author was trying to pull off strong willed with a fiery temper only we got spoiled with unrealistic achievements for the temperament she had. Then she goes and blames everyone for all the evils in the world and her own actions. Plus the hero put up with her crap to the point that you wondered about his backbone. After reading some of the reviews on Amazon, I decided not to finish this book because I knew I would only get more irritated with the brat in this story. Narrator does a good job at voices, but when she reads what description there is she's not so good, a bit monotoned.
