Publisher's Summary

She has a passion for unlocking the secrets of the past....
Archaeologist Carter Wessex is drawn to Farrell Mountain to solve a centuries-old mystery — and to find a fortune in hidden gold. One thing stands in her way: Nick Farrell, a notorious corporate raider with way too much sex appeal and no patience for trespassers on his land. After an explosive introduction, Carter abandons the project... but with Nick in hot pursuit.
What she finds is something more valuable than gold. Though wary of Nick’s change of heart, Carter is soon swept up into the mystery — and the arms of a man she swore she’d never fall for. As buried secrets surface and passion grows, the shocking details of the missing gold are revealed. So are Nick’s true motives, leaving Carter to wonder if everything between them has been just another cunning ruse... and if Nick has more secrets yet to share.
It will take a heart of gold to find the truth — and have faith in a timeless love.

Not a typical JR Ward book-Terrible naration.

What did you like best about Heart of Gold? What did you like least?

This is your typical romance.You can predict the book within the first 15 minutes. 2 people begin as adversaries and fall in love. Easy listening. Simple plot. I have read/or listened to every JR Ward/Jessica Bird book she has written. I love them all!! This one, I would not recommend. You can feel this is her first book written. Characters are superficial.. Narrator is terrible. The main character Nick sounds like an old man. You do not get the feel he is only 36 years old. The narration does not support the simple love story. I would not listen to this narrator again.

Would you be willing to try another book from J. R. Ward? Why or why not?

I love all JR Ward books and have read them all.

How could the performance have been better?

More inflection into the characters, slow down the narration, and keep the voice with the age of the character.

What would have made this romance irresistible?

Better narrator!

Not her best.

This thing reads like a 1970's romance novel. The "hero" is an insensitive jerk who accuses the heroine of being interested in a minor and of having an affair with a married man. He has had a string of involvements with women he has used and casually discards a girlfriend. He's secretly using the heroine to win brownie points with her father, a potential business partner. The heroine lies about an assault / fails to report to the authorities. Most of the characters aren't very likeable. Bad pacing. No complaints about the narrator, who does a good job with the voices, but I can't bring myself to finish this.
