"Excellent Western Romance!"
I LOVED this story! The romance is very well developed and the sexual tension was hot! The story and the narration were both passionate, intense and very interesting. I can't believe that the rest of the series is not available. Please add more books by this author!!!
"The Rancher and the Medium - Hot Stuff!!!"
Sylvia Mc Daniel conjured up a story that makes us laugh, cry and empathise with Desiree/Rose as she struggles to make a life for herself in spite of her chaotic upbringing. She's feisty and no nonsense and can stand up for herself, until Travis appears.
Travis is all for family and is so attracted to Rose but cannot entirely trust her. His Mom wants grandchildren and to see her boys married and settled, so she will stop at nothing to make that a reality and runs a scam to entice the two main characters into getting to know each other. It's a cause for mayhem and chaos in the lives of the characters, but the story is funny, with lots of laughs and all's well that ends well.
The supporting characters are well thought out and the plot thickens as the story emerges. Once you start listening you just want to continue to the end.
This book was superbly written and I recommend it to other readers and listeners.
I look forward to what else Sylvia McDaniel has to share, as this book is a 'keeper' and favourite. Really great reading.
Listening to Robin Rowan was a wonderful experience as she portrayed the various characters via her voice. I'm impressed. You go girl.
"Enjoyable, But. Weak Plot and"
The Rancher Takes a Bride is very, very sensuous, not like a triple X rating, but it is continuous R rated. Sylvia McDaniel writes these scenes extremely well. If her character motivation and her plot was half as well done, I would have given this 4 stars. There is so much sensuous scenes that the plot drags. This book was on sale for a couple of dollars and it was a good deal for the low price, but I may not buy another from this author. Rose's voice was whiney and Travis' mom was too snooty. This may be the fault of the writer.
"I liked it!"
I enjoyed the story though sometimes they repeated themselves a lot. I think It could had been shorter. However it was good!
"The Rancher Takes a Bride"
This book does not have much storyline. It is all about sex, or almost sex. I wish there was a review or rating system so one does not waste their time or money on books like this. Sorry.
"The rancher takes a bride"
I'm not one for love stories, by this one had me in tears by the end,sowoeththe purchase, I hope you try it...........so worth it completely, .........if your into love stories foul enjoy it
The story was okay but the ending was unimaginative and disappointing. Furthermore I resent being forced to add nine more words.
The story seemed to keep repeating and there was not much to the plot. Rose was so forgiving of everything.
"The narration sounded as if it were computerized"
If I didn't know any better, I would say that the male voices were spoken by a computer. The story wasn't very memorable either. This one is not worth a credit ... or the time necessary to listen.
"Can you tame a grumpy cowboy?"
Yes, if they were into western romance without gunfire and explosions.
Robin has a gentle whisper toned voice that made the female character sound a little like a simper, the male character voice was good but more strength of emotion in the story would have been good.
No, Travis finally made the right choices at the very end and I could not go through that stubbornness and stupidity again.
Sorry, I couldn't relate to these characters and didn't like either of them. The story was good but it's hard to get into a story about characters you dislike.
