Definite 4 stars. Good story, great narration, just what you want in an audio book.

A comment from "hard to please" - I did not find this the least bit interesting, lots of 4 letter words I don't normally object to except excessive & repetitious. Not a fan of bodice ripper books, leave something to my imagination please. I just want interesting story line & quality writing. Dumped it fairly quickly.

The reader adds tremendously to this interesting and thought-provoking novel. Looking forward to reading (listening) to more of this author's work, and also to hearing more of this reader's work. He is awesome. In my opinion the cover of this book doesn't do the story justice and had I been the author I would have been disappointed with the effort considering the depth of the effort it must have taken to write this book!
