Fantastico!

Oh what a pleasant surprise this was! My first historical/western romance and I LOVED it. And it became my favorite Lorraine Heath book so far. I don't like to give spoilers but let me tell you there are several surprises on this book. Angela is not your average heroine. She has a disability but she is as independent and strong as she can possibly be. And the delicious outlaw Lee Raven turns out to be someone else. By the end of the story, everything you thought at the beginning of the story ends up being completely different. I also loved the historical references about Texas fight for independence and how the touchy subject of racism and prejudice is handled. Great romance, great action, great suspense!

Narration: this is my first book narrated by Moe Eagan. I liked her. I did find her narration a bit slow at times. Some of the characters in this story are Mexican and Ms. Eagan pronounced the words in Spanish excellently. She also made her characters who had a strong accent in English sound very believable. Ms. Eagan had to narrate in Spanish, English, with american(Texan) accent and British accent and did it all very very well. At the same time each character sounded different and her male voices were great. I would listen to more books narrated by her in the future.

I highly recommend this book to people who like historical romances with great narration.

- SIMARA "I love books! Audiobooks take stories to the next level. I'm obsessed with Audible and will try to rate all of my books. Happy Listening! ;)"

Fantastic story!!!!

Although this is one of Lorraine Heath's older books it is definitely worth listening too. Ms. Heath always weaves such an interesting tale with intriguing characters. There are places in the book where you want to laugh and others that make you quite sad. I particularly liked Angela's strong character and when Lee Raven realizes Angela's flaw.

I think that Moe Egan did a very nice job although I think she reads a little too slowly. She does a great job with the Spanish accents, but totally botched the English accents. One can easily distinguish the various characters speaking with Ms. Egan's reading. She just needs to pick up the pace a little bit.

I would definitely recommend this book because it keeps you guessing and some nice twists and turns.
