not as good as you expect

The characters were well developed. but the story line was drawn out. the hero and heroine came to their conclusions very early on which made for a very LONG conclusion. Great writing, love the descriptions and the narration faultless, but this is not one of our writers better ones - still - consistent good prose beats other drivel, so worth the download with moderate expectations.

Romance novels

I am a fan of this series so I enjoyed this final book. My expectations for romance novels are not high. I am not expecting great literature or historical insight. I am looking for romance and a fairly entertaining story but not a powerful novel. This book was better than many I have read in this category. Not a keeper but good enough to listen to again. No surprises here but that is usual for romance books. The lovers usually overcome all obstacles which sometimes are considerable but in the epilogues we always get the equivalence of "and they lived happily ever after" if this is the kind of book you are looking for you will not be disappointed. I buy these books when I want a stress free, brain free, love story. I don't need to concentrate too much or really be distracted from serious matters. I can put it down when I am busy and escape when I have time. So depending on what type of reading you are looking for this may or may not be a good choice for you. As distracting fiction its not bad. Due to the popularity of these books I imagine that there are many women readers that enjoy this type of fiction. I would recommend this book but then I bought this on sale so didn't have much invested either. I usually pick these books up at garage sales for a dollar or less. I buy these audio books when I can pay $10 or less. I don't like to reveal the plot as there generally isn't a lot to begin with and it exists mostly as the vehicle to get the lovers together.

Rescue yourself from this book

I must confess I have only managed to force myself to the end of the first half of the novel so far but as I'm not sure I'll be able to make myself go further I'll base my review on the first 5 hours.
The novel has a lovely opening scene after which nothing whatsoever happens. If the author's intent was to show her readers just how pointless and empty the lives of the aristocracy were at this time - she's done a brilliant job but I think she could have done it in fewer words. Halfway through there is no plot, no tension and I have zero interest in any of the characters. I see that as a narrative problem and if you do as well, I encourage you to consider carefully before making your purchase.

Narrator

Simon Prebble nails the reading of these books. I prefer his reading to the females that have narrated in this series.

Sigh....Boring!

This book didn't get really interesting until the 2nd half. That said, it was really hard to listen to the first half and I'm really suprised that I forged ahead. As this book appears to be part of a series, I would like to read the previous books, as the characters sounded more interesting.

To Rescue a Rogue

A great end to the series. I love how the author wrapped up most of the lose ends. Now on to the story of Dare's little sister.

Jo Saved the Best For Last

This was a great end to this best of historical romance series. For me, the story was perfectly paced. It’s a complicated story with a lot of detours to the happy ending we expect when we read Jo’s books.
I’m easily bored with to many plot contrivances but I never walked away from this book.
I think I’ve read and owned almost every Jo Beverly book and I miss her. When she died, I felt that I lost a friend. I’m reading her books again as a tribute to a wonderful bard. ( I know, they sang but that was what came to my mind)

Frustrating at times

I liked a lot about the book but there were parts that frustrated me or made me lose interest. I thought she was annoying at times and hoped for love, not an instant love.

Great Listen!

I have listened to the other books in this series and enjoyed this one every bit as much as the others. It has a great story line, strong characters, and a good balance between romance and sensuality. It is also well narrated; Simon Prebble brings additional depth to the characters and enhances the overall listening experience.

It's Romance

I enjoyed the storyline. If you are looking for a romance to read or listen to during vacation then this is a great book for that.
