In this classic romance from #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts, Frederica Kimball is about to find that the wait for the man of her dreams is finally over!
Frederica Kimball had been waiting all her life...waiting to grow up...waiting forever for the day when Nicholas LeBeck would fall as desperately in love with her as she had always been with him.
Nick didn't know what had hit him. Sweet, adorable Freddie, whom he'd always loved like a kid sister, was suddenly all woman. And his feelings for her were anything but brotherly!

I was really looking forward to this story as I'd followed the characters through the whole series. Narrated and paced well.
I listened to this in one day and I'm pleased with this purchase.
"Waiting For Nick"
After listening to several other books in this series being read by the narrator, I was pleasantly surprised that there was less use of the fake accents, nasally and whiny voice that was used on other characters. It was like the narrator was finally getting the feel of the characters and letting them bleed through the reading.
"SPOILED ROTTEN and TRULY OBNOXIOUS"
Yes - Give Freddie some humility. She is very unlikable throughout.
The Stanislaski's are a charming family, very warm and fun loving. I have listened to all the books in the series, except for Considering Kate, which I have downloaded. Freddie was a charming daddy's girl in the series. I anticipated this book and was so looking forward to listening to it. Oh my! It's the first Nora Roberts book that I truly didn't enjoy. Freddie was a spoiled rotten brat, for lack of better words. I like Nick, the kid who has had some hard knocks. It was amazing the amount of placation that was involved. Very disappointed.
Mikhail and Natasha - love her Ukranian accent.
The storyline was a bit predictable. Not one of the best. The narrator was awful.
I had never read NR. She is a great writer. Story line. .great. It makes you want to keep reading.
"My favorite in Series"
I think I liked this one best out of the series. maybe cuz you watched both kids grow up through the series.
"Maybe I'm being harsh however..."
Someone who likes obnoxious spoiled women. I haven't read/listened to any other books in the series and if the characters are 1/2 as annoying as the main female in this book I just don't want to know.
I listened to Jude Deveraux's "Ever After" once this books was completed. That story was wonderful, both the story and narration.
Anybody, why is it so many female narrators can not narrate male voices without them sounding stupid and slow? The main male voice displays no emotion and the female sounds superior.
