Publisher's Summary

Cash Fraser is planning revenge, and to get it he needs the perfect woman. So he hires her. Abigail Butler has lost nearly everything in her life and she's about to lose the home she loves.
Cash meets Abby, who is posing as a paid escort, and the minute he does he knows he's willing to pay for more than Abby being his pretend girlfriend. A lot more. Abby needs the money or the last thing that links her to her dead family and husband will be gone. The deal is struck, but both Cash and Abby get more than they bargained for.
Cash realizes very quickly that Abby isn't what she seems, and while he changes strategies, Abby discovers that Cash's legacy, Penmort Castle, is like all the tales say - very, very haunted. Making matters worse, the ghost in residence wants her dead.
Abby's found herself in the battle of her life, so she enlists Mrs. Truman, her nosy neighbor; Jenny, her no-nonsense friend; Cassandra McNabb, white witch and clairvoyant with a penchant for wearing scarves (and lots of them); and Angus McPherson, dyed-in-the-wool Scot (which means he hunts ghosts in a kilt) to fight the vicious ghost who has vowed that she will rest at nothing to kill the true, abiding love of the master of Penmort.

Oh, those accents!

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Probably no. I had enjoyed the story when I read it but it was very difficult to listen to. The accents that were not American were terrible! I couldn't work out where Jenny was even from until I was told! Her accent was some sort of bad cross between Australian, New Zealander, South African and English. The accents for everybody but our heroine kept taking me out of the story.

What didn’t you like about Abby Craden’s performance?

See above.

Book was good but narrator was not.

The narrator was not very good. The accent she did was bad. Almost ruined the whole story.

Great story, horrifically narrated accents.

I’m saddened that such a great series of books have been ruined by a narrator that can not do accents and should be stopped from attempting them and also can someone please tell her that when attempting an English accent you should pronounce the words in English not American. Really irritating how books do loved when read can be ruined by a poor choice of narrator.
I sincerely hope that Kristen has some of the worst offenders re-recorded.

Great romance/paranormal mix, poor narration

I had read this book twice on kindle and was, admittedly, a little worried about all the negative reviews on Amazon concerning the narration. It’s not that bad. The voice of the H is a bit weird – sort of Scottish crossed with Russian, but it’s also deep enough and sexy enough not to really matter. The worst narration is for Jenny, the best friend of the h. She is in the book a lot so this is fairly annoying. Her accent is a weird illogical mix of countries, but the biggest issue is that sometimes her accent is so strong that it’s difficult to understand, and other times her accent is barely noticeable. Some of the side characters have really silly voices that are almost a parody. However I have to sympathise with a narrator who had to put voice to one character who “screeches” most of the time!

Apart from the narration issues, however, I enjoyed this book on audio as much as on kindle. It’s a lovely mix of romance and a bit of paranormal, it had me in tears in the final chapters and it has a wonderful, classic, epilogue for which this author is so skilled at producing.

Kristen Ashley is brilliant

Another well written and well narrated story. Even the accents worked well. The story and expression in the voices plus descriptions of rooms and clothes made me believe I was there observing the action. Another happy ending.

Great Story. Narration ok

Story was typical Kristen Ashley, I enjoyed it start to finish. Narration for the most part was good, however the "Scottish Brogue" fell flat, and in some parts detracted from the story. Not enough to stop me listening to the rest of the series though.
