a great book, but terrible abridgement

I read the print version of this book several years ago, loved it, and was looking forward to revisiting it in the audio version, but was very disappointed. The abridgement is one of the worst that I've encountered (major and significant events and characterization missing, story changed), and the narration for the main female character was particularly annoying (poor accent, odd pitch). I suggest enjoying a print copy of this book in order to get the background for the series (and it is a great story), and then listening to the rest of the series in audio.

I enjoyed listening to this book having read the book several times I can say that it does not follow the story. There is at least one chapter missing the epiloge. Scenes in the book are not mentioned at all. Important facts gone. Everything goes along okay but some of the facts are totaly wrong.

good and bad

I love the story. It's a typical romance that girls love. However, I think the unabridged version would have been much better, because feelings between the hero and heroine developed too quickly in the abridged version. I only give it 2 stars because of the narrator. It sounds as though she is yelling the story to you. She also does not always demonstrate the correct emotion of the characters, so it doesn't sound right. I really love the story, but the narrator ruined it for me.

Sentimental Favorite

This is a sentimental favorite for Linda Howard fans. I'd love to see this rerecorded unabridged with someone who can sound more convincing as patriarch and original alpha male Wolf Mackenzie. Recording Howard's A GAME OF CHANCE would complete the series.

The first in the Mackenzie series

Overall, an ok read/listen. It seems a bit outdated just by the nature of the plot, the description of the heroine and the air of aloofness and implied savageness of the hero. After the first 20 minutes it becomes more tolerable and a more appealing book. The story sets the foundation for the remaining stories of the individual "mackenzie's" which get better and better.

An enjoyable read

This is a very entertaining book. The main charactor, Mary is however slightly stupid, but still fun to listen to. The narator has a horrible voice so I only gave it 3 stars. Her voice can be hard to listen to as her version of a southern accent is horific at best. If you can concentrate on the words and not her voice you will enjoy the book.
