Loveable story which is a true fairy tale
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes, there wasn't anything I didn't like about this story, it has a little of everything in it.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Duke of Kerstone (Simon) He was truly an honorable man who put his line first and his self last.
Any additional comments?
At first I was on the fence and a little confused. I have never understood the different titles in England which did not help me at all. The beginning was a little confusing for me but as the author and narrator took me through the book I grew to understand a little better. If one takes into fact the year this book was written about it all come together nicely.
There is passion not so much of what we see into today’s writing but more of how it would have been if the book was written back in time. This is a pretty clean read which I feel adds to the delivery of the book. The one thing I adore above everything was the British accent, it adds so much to this story. I was so in shock over the accent that it took me awhile to get into the story. I so love the accent that I wasn’t listening so much to the words as the voice which was truly amazing and lovely. However the beginning of the audio does have some buzzing in it which I found to be annoying but it did clean up to be a very joy able listen.
I found Bushra Laskar as a narrator to be a delight with a wonderful easy flowing voice that I could listen to all day. Her British accent added so much to the book, it was smooth and flowed easy. I did not hear to many character changes, there were a few that I thought were lovely but I did not notice many. In no way did that take away from the story.
When I picked my kindle up to listen I thought it would be more of a fairy tale kind of a repeat of old stories with a twist. That was not the case, the stories Miranda told were of old childhood stories we were told, the book was not a remade of fairy tales. Most people thought Miranda a little off but she stuck to her believes in a HEA. For me the narrator had me hooked even through the beginning with the confusion.
I would have liked to have seen a little more to the ending but the ending was a nice one with lots of HEAs for everyone. The authors writing style at the beginning is a little confusing but as you go along it is easy to follow and flows easily. I enjoyed it so much that I wanted to listen or read to more from this author. I did download another audio and the box set of the Fairy Tale Brides.

It has it all....
I just listened to this story for the second time and enjoyed it just as much as the first time. It is a well conceived tale of love, honor, deceit, and betrayal.
Narrator : Not the best but acceptable. There is something odd in the pronunciation of certain words, not quite an impediment, that takes away occasionally. But the characters are clearly individuals whose voices, emotions and personalities are definite.
Heat Factor: barely luke warm.
Creditworthy? I say yes.
