First Thought when Finished: The Pirate Bride was humorous at times but that just couldn't save it for me. That being said, the narration made me stick with the story till the very end because Heather Wilds did an excellent job.
Book Club Thoughts: Overall this was one of those books that everyone seemed to like parts of very much! We all agreed that there were some great moments between Medina and Thork. They had a great energy and their banter was fun. We liked the secondary characters and think some of them will make great leading men.
My Thoughts: I know with a 2.50 rating, it probably looks like I didn't enjoy the book at all. That isn't true. There was some trademark Sandra Hill banter in the story that made me smile. I am a big fan of Sandra's writing but this book just didn't work for me. I don't know if it was timing or just that neither Medina nor Thork won me over. With historical romance I have to love the characters for the story to work for me.
Narrated By Heather Wilds / Length: 9 hrs and 29 mins
I loved Heather Wilds narration. I don't think I would have finished the story if not for her. She did several accents and all of them made me smile. This had to be a tough one to narrate and she did a wonderful job.
Final Thoughts: Despite not liking this particular couple, I will continue to read Sandra Hill!

This one was tricky! I guess I should have really realized what the title said... irrelevent since I totally enjoyed it all the same.
You have to go into it knowing you can't take it seriously or you could get tangled a bit. Even so it was a good romance even if slightly twisted. I found the utopic life the women had created to be of a strong intent and worthy of it's creation. The concept of what they wanted from the male species a humorous addition leaving the stories intent slightly twisted to be sure.
Credit worthy? Yeah... But I think I bought it since it was reasonably priced and I got to save the credit.
