I bought this about an hour ago and decided to listen to it today but there's no way I can listen to a whole book with the hero sounding like a girl. This is 2017! Time for female narrators to listen to other great female narrators and learn a thing or two. Like a man is NOT supposed to sound like a girl in a romance novel.
K.C.Sheridan must have gotten several of her friends to buy this book then tell you how great this narrator was, when she's not.
I was looking forward to this story but, alas, you got a bad narrator, Ms. Longley. I can barely stand it when a male narrator doesn't raise his voice quite enough to sound female but I can't listen to a book where the hero sounds exactly like the heroine.
If you want to hear the hero say something you have to listen to the last line of the sample when the hero says, "what is the daft lassie doin' then?" I listened to about ten minutes more then gave up.
I gave the author 3 stars on overall and story because it wouldn't let me just rate the narration. Which is ridiculous.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
Not this audiobook version. I don't know how good the story is because I couldn't get past the narrator's weird pauses. She sounds like she was taught to read by William Shatner. The breaks in sentences in places where there wouldn't even be a comma made it difficult to listen to. I found myself so distracted and sometimes had to stop to think about the sentence she said because the breaks were just all wrong. I will NEVER buy another book this person narrated.
If you’ve listened to books by Barbara Longley before, how does this one compare?
I haven't and I gave this one 3 stars because that is average and I don't know if the story is good or bad because I couldn't continue listening.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of K.C. Sheridan?
I don't know the narrators by name. Sheridan did a good job with the accents, but she needs basic reading lessons. Read it like you would speak it. It needs to flow, not have each sentence broken up into many sentence fragments. So frustrating!
Any additional comments?
I don't understand how a book can end up with such a bad reading. Surely Audible listens to the narrations before publication. Please, someone who chooses the narrator, go back and listen to how she breaks up these sentences.
