Tender, funny and heart-wrenching
What did you like most about A Kiss for Midwinter?
The characterisation was superb, right down to the supporting characters. Courtney Milan is one of few authors who is able to craft a novella which feels as though you've read or listened to a full-length novel when you've finished it. In a relatively short space, she tells the story of a young woman trying to bury her past while at the same time feeling it has tainted her irrevocably; paints a swift but detailed portrait of the love of two very different fathers for their children; and shows us a young man who is spending his life trying to make up for a youthful error which changed the course of a woman's life. It's beautifully written and just as beautifully performed. Rosalyn Landor is quite simply THE bee's knees when it comes to historical romance, and she's doing a tremendous job with this series of Ms Milan's.
Who was your favorite character and why?
I loved both the principals, but I think Jonas wins by a nose. He's so refreshingly honest and I love the idea of his giving Lydia the gift of truth. He's downright sexy, too ;-)
Which character – as performed by Rosalyn Landor – was your favourite?
It's impossible to say as she's so good with every character she plays.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
There were a couple of moments I found myself tearing up, definitely.

I absolutely love COURTNEY MILAN!!
Where does A Kiss for Midwinter rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Mid range, as I have read many heavier tomes that affect me deeply.
What did you like best about this story?
I enjoyed the character of Jonas very much; he was before his time and very serious and blunt. I loved his honesty, mostly.
The coming together of the two leads was expertly done as usual, with a depth of understanding of the human condition of the era.
What about Rosalyn Landor’s performance did you like?
She is an expert narrator and has a voice that is ideal for any character. Brilliant!
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Of course, but life steps in!
Any additional comments?
All Courtney Milan's books should have a top class Narrator so that discerning people are able to buy and enjoy the books that we love.

Excellent Christmas Love Story...
I loved this story and listened to it I a day. It's a sweet and sexy love story that show you real characters with believable flaws. It's not a perfect love story but one with real struggles and bumps in the way. But at the end love conquers all and gives you a very satisfying happily ever after. The narration was impeccable as well and the Christmas theme was executed to perfection. I highly recommend this book.

Beautiful Story - Book 3 of The Brothers Sinister
Lydia is Minnie's best friend from the 2nd book, The Duchess War. There were some passing statements in that book regarding Lydia's "situation". The story was short but so in depth.
I felt this book in my heart and couldn't stop listening. I love the story between Lydia and John.
Rosalyn Landor, of course I can never give enough praise to. She makes every book she reads a joy to listen to.
