Though a stunning, statuesque beauty herself, intelligent and independent Brittany has struggled hard to earn respect in a man's world. She is taken aback when Dalden, a spectacular Viking who is a long way from home, needs her help - and is willing to pay for it. He's had Brittany's blood running red-hot since she first saw him, and warrior or not, she agrees to help him.
As bold and brash as she is beautiful, Brittany isn't going to be subservient to any man, even one who is everything she ever wanted in a lover, and whose very touch sets her senses afire. Dalden is a warrior to the depths of his soul - proud, powerful and brave - a man who will fight fearlessly and relentlessly for what he wants. And now, what he wants most of all is Brittany....

Enjoyed the book to a point, although found it a bit strange. The narrator with the voices was a bit off putting.
"Not the beginning of the trio"
I know that this author is most well known for her historical romances and I think that's why a lot of reviewers are disappointed - they aren't getting what they're expecting. However, if you do like romances in a sci-fi sense, this is a good one.
The only nit-picky thing I have to say is that the narrator tends to make our main guy sound like a robot.
One other thing - this isn't the first book in this trio ... it's actually the last. Readers may not be used to the world yet if they haven't read the first two books. I read them a few years ago, they're well worth it and I hope they show up here sometime soon.
"Enjoyable as a book, but not when narrated..."
I have read and own every Johanna Lindsey book published, and a few on audible as well. I expected to enjoy this much more than I actually did. Laurel Merlington has done "okay" jobs on other Lindsey novels but when narrating the parts of the male main character her voice takes on an almost robot"ish" tone. Also, even though this is fantasy/romance many of the words in the book seem mispronounced, and I have caught a few that are in fact mispronounced (example: Challen, Tedra's lifemate is supposed to be pronounced as Challenge without the G. If you put as much emphasis on detail as I do this will annoy you too much to enjoy having someone else narrate for you. I was unable to enjoy this purchase, and find I am unable to complete the listening experience.
Male main character had a robot"ish" voice that ruined the reading for me, and some words were, and seemed to be mispronounced.
I was unable to finish the experience.
Is a refund possible?
"Hard to follow."
I normally love all of Johanna Lindsey's books and own many of them but this was a bit complicated. There was a lot of explanation in the 1st chapter and I kept waiting for the story to start. It eventually does and gets better.
Well I wish I had listened to the reviews. Not in the slightest what I was expecting. I found the plot rather boring and the main girl half the time acting tough and half the time acting like a southern belle who will faint at the drop of a hat :(
Narration was good EXCEPT for our main man which yes she very very much makes him sound like a robot.
Sadly I wish I hadn't wasted the money buying this one or the time listening to it
"Oh, if only I were into bots....."
Johanna Lindsey, yes, Laural Merlington, no.
It was hard to have one with the reading, however actually reading the book it is our steadfast hero.
Michael Page was pretty good, I prefer when men read, dunno why.
So, I've read this book many, many times and have always loved it. However, the reader makes our very manly hero sound like a robot. Very, very distracting and it eventually got to the point that I was kind of making fun of it in my head when I knew there were going to be upcoming lines. *sigh* Excellent book to read on your own though!
"Good story but narrator destroyed it."
Narrator's attempt to produce a male warrior voice produced a poor computer like personality and sound and it was very irritating. That is the only drawback to this recording but it's s big one.
Wonderful. I read the series years ago and loved it then and loved it now. Just wish we could get the whole series in audible.
Sherrilyn Kenyon's The League Series.
At first I was not sure I was going to like her performance, but after the beginning, I came to enjoy the way she performed the characters in the book. Especially Martha.
Smiles and laughter
"Oldie but Goodie"
Yes. I read this years ago and I enjoyed listening to it.
No one favorite.
No extreme reaction but I enjoyed the book. This was written year ago but holds up.
I would like to listen to the other books in this series but understand they aren't available.
I actually read this story over 10 years ago. Heating it read aloud had given me a new perspective. WONDERFUL.
"Love the series in print. Not so much in audible."
Since the Warrior is from another planet and very romantic and exciting the narrator tried to give him a different sound, but it ended up being very cheesy. In print you're free to imagine the Warrior as you would like him to sound. I think the narrator has a great voice, but the Warrior wasn't what I thought he should be and I couldn't get past it.
