Good story, so so narration.

This was a pretty good story. I really liked the heroine, she was funny, witty and smart, not the whimpering, simpering chew on bottom lip heroine. The hero was okay too, I would have liked him a bit more sexy and arrogant, but not a bad arrogant. The H and H did have some good chemistry and there are some nicely written sex scenes, not to graphic, just the right amount.

The story line and plot were very good. The villains were definitely villains! Oh my... they were bad. LOL

There as so much dialogue throughout the entire book which was fantastic. (I like lots of dialogue)

I really liked some of the secondary characters as well. Looking forward to Leopold's book for sure.

As for the narration. It was just okay. The narrator seemed so monotone and a bit robotic throughout the entire book. She really needs to put some emotion in her voice. The men sound like men which is good but still some emotion would be great.

Digression Fever.

There were a few things about this book that affected my enjoyment of it. The first was the reader, Ashford MacNab. She gives us the plummy baby-talk females, and the monotone male voices that are typical for her, but usually I can overlook it if the story engages me enough. Not so in this one. Here, the voices assigned to the various male characters change back an forth until you don't know who's talking.

Hannah Howell is a new author for me, and I'm going to assume that this book is an early one for her. The constant changes in POV from the H to h, back and forth, with digressions describing exactly what the other character is thinking or has just experienced of the same event, kept bringing the action to a grinding halt. Why would she do that? What is the point? It was repetitious and ruined what was otherwise a good story, with a great villain, and plenty of sex appeal. Bummer.

The digressions got so bad that I just went ahead and skipped the last three chapters to the really poorly written epilogue. (Why write an epilogue, and then make it so boring?)

I didn't miss anything -- I already knew what was going to happen because one of the characters has the "sight." Besides, I just couldn't take the long winded descriptions of why the cook didn't take the dog down to the safe room and why no one was watching the five year old who got out of the safe room to save the dog when the whole house was under attack. Really? No one saw the little heir running off into danger? No one? It was described as a small room, and his grandmother, aunt and five female relatives were all there with him. Yeah, that's where it lost me. Also, our TSTL h didn't have the sense to go with all the women to the safe room, but decided to look around the house for anyone who hadn't heard the gun fight outside the front door, even though the whole house was under alert. Really?

I will say on a positive note that I had already purchased the next book in the series and I'm enjoying that one much more. The digressions and changing POV's are gone.

MacNab is still the reader, sigh, but you can't have everything.
