I got this one during a recent sale so I definitely got my money's worth. The other reviews for this book were all over the scale and I'm not sure why because I enjoyed this book a lot. Unlike many reviewers, I don't like to put spoilers in my reviews but I will say this story is filled with loyalty, mystery, and passion along with sexual tension that builds slowly. Oh, and of course, every good story has a villian and this one does not disappoint. LOL.
Overall, the narrator did great. However, he did a better job with the male voices than the female voices.
I know this book has been out a while but I still think it's worth listening to especially if there is a sale.

Author and narrator were new to me, but I found them both exceptionally talented.
The story takes place in medieval England, during the reign of King Stephen, 1135-1154, when people believed if nonidentical twins were born it was a sign that someone else had sired one of them. This led to Blaec's father treating him like a bastard, and although he was the Earl's first born son, his father left the Earldom to his brother Grahaem.
Due to his father's ill treatment Blaec became a hardened warrior, called the Black Dragon, with the reputation of being an invincible demon. But despite the old Earl's rejection of Blaec the brothers had a warm, loving relationship. Blaec, strong and heroic, was determined to protect his younger brother at all costs.
To settle a land feud of long standing, Dominique Beauchamp was offered in marriage, by her impoverished brother, to Grahaem, the wealthy lord of Drakewich. Resigned to wed in order to heal their injured lands, she never counted on losing her heart to the brother of her betrothed--the Black Dragon.
Braden Wright's performance makes a good story even better.
I highly recommend "Once Upon a Kiss".
