Definitely what a sweet tender romance should be. This is one I will listen to again and again.

Lisa Kleypas is an excellent author. Rosalyn Landor is an excellent narrator. Put them together and you have......PFM (pure freakin' magic!). I thought my favorite narrator was Davina Porter (who is very, very good, by the way), but Rosalyn Landor does SUCH A FANTASTIC JOB distinguishing between characters, male and female; not just reading Lisa Kleypas' stories, but actually PERFORMING them! She is one talented lady.
This book is a bit different than many romance novels that I have read. I liked the heroine and the hero both and was quite moved by their story. Yes, I realize this is fiction (and romantic fiction at that), but I really came to care about what happened to Holly and Zack. Ms. Kleypas created the exact amount of tension between them and she writes GREAT love scenes.....(phew!) Holly is a very lovable character and I found myself laughing out loud at some of the things she said and thought ("I'm going to make his eyes fall out!"). Zack is a very strong man, not a pushover, but he loves Holly the way I think every woman wants to be loved.
Listening to/reading romance novels is a guilty pleasure of mine so when I find an author who is actually a good storyteller, can create characters that I actually care about, and doesn't use too many cheesy or overdone plots, I seek to read or listen to all of his/her books. LK is my latest find (I haven't been this excited since I discovered Diana Gabaldon over ten years ago) and I will definitely be downloading more of her novels on Audible.
