A Hidden Ruby

Any additional comments?

This is a good standalone audiobook.I hope it was longer so that the characters get to be developed well. I enjoyed listening to this romance novel.

What an intriguing read mystery, romance, suspense

Any additional comments?

After listening to this I can’t wait to listen to the rest in the series. I found this to be very intriguing read with a little mystery, romance, revenge, hate, desire good and bad, suspense, passion, lies, heat and steam at its finest. It will break your heart from the start leaving you wishing there was something you could do to help each character. The book starts with Rubina being kidnapped and finding out her husband is dead. For many years she believed this her world as she knows it isn’t worth living without him leaving her in the arms of his killer. She will not give in to the mad man’s desires and he will never find her in his bed. If she can’t have the man she loves there will be no man for her at all. Near deaths door she is found by her brother after being abused for so many years there isn’t much left of the sister he once knew. This is a story filled with so much pain, desire, trying to protect the ones you love only to make matters worse with each step you take.

Ms. Scotts narration was outstanding she really pulls the listener in with her very talented voice she delivers wonderful character voices you get lost in. There was a few that were close to the other but you could still tell who was talking and just what they were feeling. She has a powerful voice that gives many different accents which keeps the listener invested in the story. Her male voices were just as wonderful as her females. Ms. Scott really puts lots of emotion in to the story giving you a very vivid picture you have no trouble seeing in your mind. You always know who is taking and just what they are feeling. If any breaks were taken I could not tell. I found no higher or lower volume than any other place in this audio. Her performance was outstanding pulling me in taking me away making me feel what each character was going through. She has a delightful rich voice that is a pleasure to listen to it is smooth, clear that really took me away making me forget I was listening. I was so invested in this audio I found things to do so I would not have to put it down. Her tones and emotion are right on the money given you one highly emotional entertaining listen. I am very pleased with this narrator and look forward to listening to more of her work.

Once Rubina is rescued she finds her husband is very much alive and about to be married. Her tempter gets the better of her as she flies into a rage how dare he move on when she has been to hell and back. Once she gets her hands on him he will learn what hell is. Just wait until you get to the scene where she walks in on his at the church on his wedding day, lord that woman is out for flesh but still stays calm even when her emotions are out of control. You could have heard a pen drop as she said her peace leaving everyone stunned as she walks out of the church. That is until Noah comes to his senses and is hot on her heels keeping us very entertained as he tries to keep his temper through all the lies his wife is feeding him. She might have left him once but she will never leave him again. He must do some fast talking to get her to agree to his big demands. Ruby would give anything once she forgives him for moving on in his life with another woman to hold him in her arms again but with the danger of death near she knows she must keep to her plans to keep her believed safe and alive.

This is a very well written story full of danger, suspense, stalking, action, adventure and very emotional which is fast moving and at times keeping you on the edge of your seat. At times I have to wonder what Rudy is thinking when she not only puts herself in danger but her friends as well. Noah had my heart from the first with the past and what is happening around him. He does very well at pinning Rudy down but she just is not giving him the answers he wants. At first I felt very sorry for Ruby and then not so much just to come right around again to the first. The author gives an outstanding plot with wonderful characters. I found there were times I was cheering the characters on and other times when I yelled NO DON’T DO IT! The author had my attention from start to finish along with my heart from the first page. I am guessing her brother’s story is next to be written it looks to be just as interesting and exciting as this one is. I can hardly wait to read the past books and the next one. I just loved this from start to finish. The author has an amazing way of getting to her readers with vivid details and wonderful scenes that captive the read.
