Great Story!

Any additional comments?

I'm a huge Tanya Anne Crosby fan...I've read this story twice & enjoyed the audio that much more. It was short enough for me to listen to while decorating for Christmas. The best part of audio is that I don't "race" through the words to get to the story...they are all there to enjoy to the end. I highly recommend this audio version.

Loved it so much I flew through the series!

I read through this series so fast, that I LITERALLY can't tell one book from the next. I just remembered I loved it all so much! Sorry to post the same review to each book in the series. It just molds together in one story! Loved it! Read it! You won't be disappointed! The men are epic! The women are smart and strong! The writing is gorgeous!

Great Story - Outstanding Performance!

What made the experience of listening to Once Upon A Highland Legend the most enjoyable?

I love listening to Scottish accents, and James Gillies did a fantastic job with that. Then to hear him speak the Gaelic words that I have no idea how to pronounce - well, I was totally entranced!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Once Upon A Highland Legend?

Several memorable moments in the story stand out, but there were two that really got me. The first one was Callum's declaration of his intent to marry Annie after their romantic interlude, and the second was when he decided that if Annie had to die then it would be by his hand.

What about James Gillies’s performance did you like?

I liked everything about James Gillies's performance. I hadn't heard him before so I hoped his narration was good, but it was even better than expected. His ability to switch from British narration to American character to Scottish character, and then add in the Gaelic - he was just awesome! His emotional treatment of the characters and his pacing were most appropriate and kept me involved with the story.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The one moment that will stay with me is when Callum called Annie, "mo chroi." Knowing that it meant "my heart," it was good to read in the book but so much better hearing it spoken. I might have melted just a little bit, right then.

Any additional comments?

Once Upon A Highland Legend: Guardians of the Stone is such a good story, and even better when hearing it performed by James Gillies. I hope to hear more of his work, especially if that means I can hear his Scottish accent again!

Good, But . . .

I am not one who likes time travel books. So for me this book was ok. I'm happy it was short. With all that said, I did enjoy it.

Excellent Story!!!<br /><br />

I listened to this book straight through without stopping even once. Loved the story so much, disappointed that it came to an end so soon. I only wish I could continue to hear more of Annie and Callums love story.

Good for mixed company.

I enjoyed this book. It was light hearted. with adventure and entertaining characters. Easy to follow.Graphic romance was minimal. It was more about the story and only nessasery romance. I will listen to this over and over.
