Summary

A wild, dangerous love

Amelia Howard cherishes her desert country. The dazzling colors, white heat, and rough sensuality of west Texas stir her very soul. But there's a serpent in her paradise: King Culhane. A towering sunburned cowboy with silver eyes that miss nothing, he's a man she's come to despise - no matter how much she had worshiped him when she was younger. 

As her father pushes her to secure a marriage proposal from King's mild-mannered brother in order to marry into the Culhane dynasty, Amelia assumes the mask of a demure young lady, always correct and obedient. It's a posture that King holds in contempt. Yet when she reveals the true force of her feelings, she unleashes a smoldering passion that cannot be denied. And everything - propriety, filial duty, even love - will be scorched in the wake of such all-consuming desire.

Narration lets it down

I loved the story, but the narrators voice was so deep and slow it was difficult to listen to. At first I thought he was under the influence of a substance - but as the book went on and things didn’t change I came to the conclusion that it was his manner of speaking that was so irritating. I like to listen to my Audio Books whilst driving, or doing my housework etc but because of the almost illegible narration I had to sit quietly and listen or I would never have worked out the plot or heard the conclusion.

The reader is horrible

I love Diana Palmer and this story it’s wonderful but the reader is awful. The reader has a deep voice and it is hard to understand what he is saying at times. You really have to listen to what he is saying

good book but needs different narrator

I have loved this book since I have read it but the narrator who is reading it has too deep a voice for it. I think it should have been read by a woman instead. If there is a way to have a different person reading it would be a better story to listen to. This narrator sounds the same for every person in the book his voice doesn't change when a woman is talking. Is a woman was reading it there would be more feeling in the story.

review

I love the book and could't wait for the audiobook. The narration of this book was awful. the narrator's voice was so slow and too deep. I was so disappointed.
