Loved the book

Here is a case when the narrator ruined the book. I would choose to read the book myself rather than purchase another narrated by this narrator. Anne Flosnik overacts, especially during love scenes, I found myself fastforwarding through each scene where things got a little bit exciting, and I found myself wishing there were an option to return the book by the first chapter.

Story pretty good, narration pretty disappointing

I enjoyed the first book in this series and so, purchased this one. I liked Scandalous much better. In this one Ms. Robards gets pretty redundant in the telling the story. e.g. yes, yes I know, even though Hugh just shaved Claire can see the beginnings of stubble - he is such a manly man. I got it the first couple of three times I heard it. I found myself telling my iPod "I know, I know already. Let's move on!" Unfortunately, I tended to do it out loud and my dear hubby kept laughing at me. As for the story itself, it is pretty far fetched even for this genre which I usually adore so that wasn't disappointing overly much.

However, the narration was incredibly disappointing! Ms. Flosnik sounded breathy, overly excited and dramatic through out which I found irritating and distracting. I very much enjoyed her narration of To Beguile a Beast so this was really a disappointment. I'm going to give her the benefit of the doubt and blame the producer/director of this recording for it's overly dramatic style.
