Publisher's Summary

Gabriel “Gart” Forbes is the most powerful knight in the arsenal of David de Lohr, Baron Thornden, brother to the mighty Earl of Hereford. When Julian de Moyon, Baron Buckland, summons Thornden for critical support, Gart travels to Dunster Castle to meet with Buckland.
Upon arrival, he is set upon by three young boys who try to rob him, all sons of Baron Buckland. Gart discovers that their mother, the Lady Emberley de Moyon, is the sister of his long-dead best friend. Remembering the lovely young girl from the days of his youth, Gart quickly realizes she has grown into a woman of magnificent beauty. He also comes to realize that Julian is a monster who beats his wife.
At first, Gart is protective of an old friend but soon, he cannot control the emotions he is feeling for Emberley. A beaten and emotionally starved woman, Emberley cannot help her feelings for a man she has loved most of her life.shuc Succumbing to a forbidden love, Gart and Emberley find powerful allies in Baron Thornden and the Earl of Hereford as they plot to convince Julian to divorce his wife.
Adding to the chaos is the fact that Julian has taken up in a love affair with Queen Isabella. When the queen begins to find interest in another man, Julian is furious and wants to use Emberley to make the queen jealous. Gart, however, keeps Emberley well hidden from her husband, even as the Church seeks to intervene.
Through trickery, Julian discovers where Gart has hidden his wife and traps the woman, intending to kill her for her treachery. Gart is unable to help her, listening to her screams of terror, when aid comes from the most unexpected of sources. Divine intervention comes in many forms in this deeply passionate love story.

Good book but..................

Firstly I must say that Kathryn is now one of my favorite authors! With that said, I have listened/read most of her books. This one reads nearly identical to another and I was a bit disappointed because of that but still enjoyed the story. The narrator though, should not read romance novels at all. Nothing against Daniel and this was my first time listening to him but his voice is more suited for maybe mysteries...........I think! Or something else other than historical romance, I literally wanted to pull my hair out sometimes. I tried to speed up his voice or slow it down but just could not get into his voice at all. I found myself saying several times, please just let this book be over with. I will be ever so cautious and not listen to any other book that he is narrating to. Just not my cup of tea!

Great Story, Narration Not So Much

What made the experience of listening to Archangel the most enjoyable?

Narrator can not do female voices well at all and made them sound like little mice. Also, Gart, the main character sounded like an oaf or either he was trying out for the male lead in Pygmalion.

What other book might you compare Archangel to and why?

Some type of King Arthur or Avalon.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Gart could have been done in a more educated version of an English accent, not sounding like the stable boy.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Rom was telling the Earl and his brother how his father treated his mother.

Any additional comments?

Great story, crappy narration.
