Good story, but distracting narration!

As long as the plot & story is decent, I usually don't have a problem with the narrator, and I especially like Stephanie Laurens' romances. However, this audio was quite different! Jasicki has a nice voice for a woman, but her male voices are very irritating! I hung in there for the whole first half because the story was intriguing and I really wanted to follow the relationship between the main characters. However, Jack's voice was so unmanly that I was distracted from the romance and had to abandon it!!! That's very frustrating, since that's the whole reason why I bought the audio version! It would be much better with another narrator.

One of my favorites.

This is one of Stephanie Laurens books that is clearly driven by something other than sex scenes.
Well done, enchanting even. With a sub-plot as enjoyable as the main. Characters you can visualize and get to know... it's a Happy Ever After Romance to fall in love with.
I've listened to all of the Cynster books and numerous other's as well.... As one of the more tame stories I found it to still be nearly perfect.

NARRATOR : Elizabeth Jasicki is becoming one of my favorites. Her performance, with the exception of a couple mispronounciations, was flawless. From cadence and tempo to the individuality of each character she delivered masterfully.

CREDITWORTHY? : YES!

HEAT FACTOR: Very low, non-existent even. But that in no way detracts from this book!
