Publisher's Summary

She came to him as a precious gift, a naked angel rolled in a rug. Once he gazed into her green eyes, saw her tangle of honey-blonde hair, he was undone with passion.

Elizabeth would never surrender. He was a hated Montgomery - she was a Chatworth - and the blood war between their families raged on, a wildfire of rape, murder, and betrayal.

Elizabeth vowed to fight the handsome lord, to resist the burning desire in his eyes - no matter how great the temptation.

I Love All of Jude Deveraux Early Books

If you could sum up Velvet Angel in three words, what would they be?

Great Love Story with lots of action, strong women, and virile heroes. I like the original Montgomery stories even more than their descendants' books. I hope that Audible will carry all of the Montgomery books soon. Narrator, Gabra Zackman brought Velvet Angel to life with her excellent narration.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Miles is the youngest Montgomery best known for his care of all women and children, yet deadly in battle. He is the definition of a sensitive hero. I read this book when it was originally published. The Audible version is even better due to the excellent narration.

Which scene was your favorite?

My favorite scene is when the other 3 Montgomery husbands hide from their furious wives letting Miles get them safely home after locking them securely in the tower.

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

Miles' story carries on the excellent story of the Montgomery brothers combining the history, humor, and romance of the medieval period in which they are set.

Any additional comments?

Audible.com has Velvet Promise and Velvet Angel available on their website. I pre-ordered them as soon as I saw they were "coming soon". I will purchase the other Books in the Velvet saga as soon as they are available on Audible.com.

"You Must Be As Heavy As My Horse!"

What did you love best about Velvet Angel?

This is a classic historical romance from the '80's. Most long time fans of this author have awaited this series, never giving up hope they would be recorded. The stories are linked, and are written to entice you to buy all four brothers stories. If, you love a classic series, they don't get better than these. These early books made the author famous. These older books do not resemble author's current modern writing so if you like her current work, read reviews for her historical work.

What other book might you compare Velvet Angel to and why?

If you are new to this classic series, and don't know if you like the style of the '80ies, then note: #1 is the most intense and sets the stories for remaining brothers, if you don't like to always question what the author is eluding to, then you may have to start with it. Since I purchased all of the books, I listened out of order #2,#4,#1,#3 as that was how I remembered loving the brothers/wives. Each book has some outstanding lines not to be missed!

Which scene was your favorite?

The opening carpet scene of course, and the escape with Sir Roger. Don't miss the title line, you will bark out loud with laughter, I did. I had forgotten how good J.D. can write!

Any additional comments?

You must listen to this series with the new 1.25x speed to update the story and give it the pace the author intended.Note: reader Gabra Zackman does this series justice. I am a long time fan of her work with over a 100 reads from her. Her male voices are as yummy as they get. A.K.A. Isabelle Gordon. See her wonderful Lorie Forester/ Buckhorn series, if you liked these brothers.

Entertaining

Who was your favorite character and why?

Brain Chatworth.

Which character – as performed by Gabra Zackman – was your favorite?

I enjoyed the wives working together and Gabra Zackman did a wonderful job giving each their own voice.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed out loud twice. I nomally don't do that.

Any additional comments?

I definately wish there were more brothers or more family. I would love a larger series.

Okay

I listened to the first book, Velvet Promise, and liked it. I skipped the next two and then listened to this fourth book in the series. It was just a little overboard, especially the ending when every single person from the series showed up for the finale.

Very entertaining and great narration

I enjoyed the entire Velvet series. The first in the series Velvet Promise provided an excellent base from which to launch the series.

The concluding comments explaining the resulting future of each family was a great touch bringing a lovely feeling of closure.

Horrid Narration Kills an Already Mediocre Story

Is there anything you would change about this book?

This could have been a good book, but the narration was so terrible it really did ruin the story. The narrator's tone of voice was one of secrecy, regardless of what was happening. Secretly lunging to kill someone, secretly having a loud confrontation, secretly everything - if it were a different narrator, I might recommend the story, but I returned this book as it was terrible

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Better narrator using an appropriate tone of voice

What didn’t you like about Gabra Zackman’s performance?

Tone of voice was always one of secrecy. So very inappropriate for most scenes.
