This isn’t the first book that I have read by Rebecca and I was very disappointed with this book. Too many uses of modern words. Drinking implements where called cups or goblets. Glass was very expensive so not common. English/Scottish did not have porches. They still don’t. I found the heroine very aggressive and not at all likeable. The hero came across as bad tempered and with no true conversation. It was also very long winded. Over thinking on the heroines part.

I have read seven books by this author and loved them all but this one was so boring. I tried to finish it but I just couldn’t. Not one of her best.

This work was not up to the usual standard of this author. Unfortunately the narrator didn’t do a good job either. Her voice suited Chloe’s voice but as for the males they sounded like she was holding her nose. Was very disappointed

Just could not get into this book

I enjoyed Jessi’s other novels but this one I just could not deal with. Not a book I could recommend

I love Barbara Cartland’s book but the narrative on this book is appalling. Twice you can hear the narrator ask if he should do it again. Twice a chapter did not end like it should have. While listening it will jump to a previous chapter. I thought it might just be downloading but I listened to another book that I had downloaded at the same time and there was nothing wrong with that one. I did not get to hear the end of the book because chapter one started again. Grrrrr

Not one of her best

I have loved Vonda’s previous books but this one was not one of her best. The narrator was poor. Story line was weak in places and characters weak. Glad I read her other books first. Otherwise I would not have purchased her other books

I have read and listened to a few of this authors books and although the story lines have promise, I find where the story needs more detail it lacks and where it should have less detail it is long winded.

Good but end needed more

I have only listened to two of Lynsay Sands books. But in both books I felt the end needed more work. Other then that it was well written, funny, suspenseful and strong. Well worth the read

This I think is the best book of Kathryn’s I have read. Tissues are a must when reading this one. I loved that James had his story and that he came home. For me this book was very powerful and one you cannot put down or not listen too.. it’s full of emotion and love. Perfect.

Awful narration

I loved Mary Morgan’s series on the Dragon Knights. But gods bones this narrator really was dreadful. The romantic sections I skipped because the narrator really handled it badly, sounded more like a lecherous old man ugh. I cannot give the stars I would normally give Mary because I hated this audio book. Thank goodness I can read it.
