I liked another book by this author, but I found this book overly dramatic & unnecessarily too long. There was a whiny kid voice aspect in this book as though it was a 9th grade love story trying to sound adult. Much of what occurred in the book was treated as though there was no need to have a basis or explanation but only enough just to will it into being. But it's wasn't enough for me. However, the immediate love that was destined is explained and acknowledged as strange, which is uncommon and good. So often, books just treat the immediate love thing as the norm and as though the characters don't realize that it's not the norm. But that alone still left the story wanting.

What did you like best about this story?
I am not a huge romance fan but this story is so much more than that. Its a gripping tale of deceit, betrayal, murder, piracy, and love. The characters are well defined and multi dimensional. As the narrator, Kate Walsh, brought the story to life all around me.
Which character – as performed by Kate Walsh – was your favorite?
I adored Kate Walsh's performance of Tatiana. All of the characters were preformed spectacularly but Tatiana was my favorite. The accent was simply intoxicating. I could envision the character right before my eyes.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Without spoiling too much of the story, when Tatiana and Adrian finally accept each other with all their faults, heartaches, and scars I could not help but cheer them on.
Any additional comments?
I cannot wait to find additional audio books narrated by Kate Walsh. I cannot say enough about her hypnotic voice. She is by far one of the best I have heard.I am a huge fan of Elise Marion's paranormal romance series and I must say I find myself wrapped up in the spell that is the Kings of Cardenas. She is a talented author with a flare for adding mystery and intrigue. There is a gripping story and not just sex in her books. I love that she has substance and not just fluff.
