Description

She Saves His Life. . .

For Chloe Wherlocke, it all begins with a vision - a glimpse into the future that foretells a terrible plot against Lord Julian Kenwood and his newborn son. Chloe's psychic gift allows her to save the child from certain death, but the earl remains in grave peril. . .

But When He Steals Her Heart. . .

Julian Kenwood knows someone is trying to kill him and he suspects his scheming wife and her lover are behind the plot. But Julian is shocked when Chloe, a captivating, dark-haired stranger, warns him that sinister forces are indeed at hand - and exposes a devastating secret that changes his life forever. . .

Will She Resist--Or Surrender?

As Chloe reveals her plan to save Julian, neither can deny the attraction that grows each moment they're together. Chloe knows the highborn earl could never love her as she loves him. But when danger strikes closer than ever, Chloe must risk everything - or lose Julian forever. . .

Historical Romance with a twist!

Any additional comments?

Love the story of a family with special "gifts" helping a man who's family is possibly up to no good. I enjoyed this because is wasn't too much special. Just a little extra help to help us through life, may it be forsight, vision of a pending danger or just a little know-how out of the ordinary to keep you from turning that corner where the evil person lies in wait for...is definately the type of person, er...family that I want on my side!

I truely enjoyed this one, and I'm looking forward to the rest. I will say that although I've listened to other books narrated by Ashford and had no problems at all, this one seems that she was a bit off her rythm. She's wonderful with the female parts but the male characters all seem the same and very stiff. Not much inflection on their emotions other than, stern. But I still liked the story and will listen to the rest. Maybe she'll get into the swing of things later...we'll see!

Get A Different Narrator!

I've read & listened a many books by Hannah Howell & enjoyed them, she tells a great story. I couldn't even get lost the first chapter of this book the narrator was shook bad! Absolutely NO emotion in her voice! Which is truly sad because she had a pleasant voice & her make and female voices were obvious. But besides the changes in each character's speaking voice she might as well have been reading a dry textbook. I couldn't listen to it, if I want to joke what happens I'll have to read the actual book myself

STORY: GREAT!! NARRATOR: ???

I'm a true fan of Hannah Howell and her writing talent is outstanding. So WHY Ashford MacNab??? There are so many others that would make this story so much more enjoyable. I'm sitting on the edge of a decision to-buy OR not-to-buy! Because it's a continuation and I enjoyed the story so much, I guess I'll suffer through one more and maybe...just maybe it'll be better. Ashford MacNab doesn't have the ability to successfully distinguish the voices of the characters. Many times, I had to carefully listen to the subject of conversation to be sure who was talking. I certainly don't mean this to be disrespectful, but Ashford MacNab is at the very bottom of my choice of narrators list. Tis a pity...it's truly a GREAT story!

It rank about 8... and Ashford Macnabb does such a great job you cant put the book down...

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Attack of the robot

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

The story is good, though I have not been able to finish it, as the narrator is a bit like nails on the chalkboard for me. Hannah Howell is a good writer, not too formulaic for a romance novelist. The beginning of the story draws me in, but she looses me a bit towards the middle. TBD if it gets better towards the end. I think I might have to read it instead of trying to listen to it if I want to finish it.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Leo...just, seems yummy.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

At first, I didn't think she would bother me, but she is monotone and her sentences are so clipped, she sounds like a robot. It is driving me up the wall! I figured she was no Anne Flosnic during the sample, so decided to give it a go, but how no one told her, "Hey, when you awkwardly pause after ever sentence, and give no tonality to the words you are saying, it makes me want to hit you in the face with a brick," I have no idea. Don't let the sample fool you, it gets worse.

Could you see If He's Wicked being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Not really...not that it isn't good enough, but I am not sure how Chloe or her talents would transfer...

Any additional comments?

I wish I could recommend this, as it is an intelligent book, but the narrator is awful.

Good story, so so narration.

This was a pretty good story. I really liked the heroine, she was funny, witty and smart, not the whimpering, simpering chew on bottom lip heroine. The hero was okay too, I would have liked him a bit more sexy and arrogant, but not a bad arrogant. The H and H did have some good chemistry and there are some nicely written sex scenes, not to graphic, just the right amount.

The story line and plot were very good. The villains were definitely villains! Oh my... they were bad. LOL

There as so much dialogue throughout the entire book which was fantastic. (I like lots of dialogue)

I really liked some of the secondary characters as well. Looking forward to Leopold's book for sure.

As for the narration. It was just okay. The narrator seemed so monotone and a bit robotic throughout the entire book. She really needs to put some emotion in her voice. The men sound like men which is good but still some emotion would be great.

Ashton MacNab

What were they thinking? I made it 5 sentences in. Why would they hire a narrator that can not do an accent when the book is written with one intended? It is deplorable and an insult to my adoration for Hanna Howell. Who hates Hanns so much at this company that they would sabotage the success of an author by appointing such a horrable narrator to perform it? Shame on you whoever you are. I will call checkmate, and just go buy the book and read it myself. Fire who ever arranged for this narrator to perform this book.

Hoping for a different narrator on the next one!

Story was great, narrator was rather painful. It was clipped, often over-enunciated and with odd accents. One character that was purportedly Welsh, was given a horrible swedish accent. Totally unsuitable. I love this author and her stories, and this was the first of them that I've listened too. I won't be able to continue the series with audible if the same narrator is used, or if she performs in the same manner.

Awful reader

I had fortunately read this book myself before but had forgotten some of it. Unfortunately I had to stop listening to it because the voice reading it was so annoying. She sounded so bored and it seemed like her nose was constant stopped up. I did manage to get an hour into it before I had enough. I've never had to turn a book off before but I couldn't even focus on the story because her voice was so grating.

Great Story

The narrator did a good job. I liked the H/h and enjoyed the secondary characters. I enjoyed how the author crafted the storyline and kept me engaged for the whole book.
