A total biddy to the point where I hated her than I even should have She was described as startlingly beautiful and haughty Instead she just sounded like an old biddy It was all wrong Tanner should have made her sound beautiful and sly instead She was way off the mark for this character audiobooks are all mark for this character Audiobooks are ALL the reader s acting abilities because they are not like reading a book yourself They are like listening to a very long movie A really talented reader can turn a so so book into a fantastic experience and likewise a crummy reader can make a decent book cringe worthy Tanner s
delivery is just 
is just out annoying I remember when I bought this book thinking I probably should skip it when I saw that Jill Tanner was the reader I ve barely gotten by her renditions of better books than this before but I tend to like Jo Goodman and the pickings for historical romances are getting slim for me I ve listened to a lot of audiobooks Historical romances are my favorites so I thought I d give her one shot AARRG Never again I ve had it with this reader and if I really want to experience any other books I see she s the narrator on I ll just buy the book and read it myself 3 maybe 35 stars for Jo Goodman s writing 1 star for Jill Tanner s annoyingly consistent deliveryNote to self Put Tanner as narrator into the same file as Laurel Merlington Avoid like the PlagueK I would give five stars to Jo Goodman s skill as a writer and a story teller but this book made me want to break things This was not a love story This was a study of the nice guy condition and what happens when the nice guy thinks a woman is laughing at him It also illuminates how a misstreated woman winds p internalizing her partner s contempt of her and develops affection for her abuser I thank Goodman for taking me on this journey I ll definitely be less trigger happy in the future to ask why didn t she just leave One of the things I liked about this book was that it is long It gave me as a reader the chance to get to know the characters in depth rather than just a surface knowledge of them I couldn t put the book down because I wanted to find out what happened in the end We first meet Jessa Winter when she is a nanny We see down the road what exactly happens to her in that position She meets Noah McClellan on a stage coach where he gets injured When she thinks he is dying she ends p marrying him so that she can escape her past as his widow and get out of the country Most of the story we get to learn of both of the characters Noah McClellan is there from America to take care of some business for his family He thinks it is going to be a ick easy trip but it turns out to be nothing like what he expected to happen Jessa Winter is smart and Pirate Barbarian uick thinking except where Noah McClellan is concerned And the same goes for him about Jessa Noah is otherwise and easy going guy from what we are told that his family considers him the level headed one of the bunch That is why it is interesting to see himnnerved by Jessa on their trip across the Ocean Both Jessa and Noah seemed like real people with faults rather than the stereotypical perfect romance novel people I liked that Sometimes both characters seemed a little crazy but that tends to be life There was a villain or two The McClellan family is a great group of characters I have not read the other books in this series I will now have to go find them because I liked this one I did manage to keep A Fearless Heart : Why Compassion is the Key to Greater Wellbeing up with this book as a stand alone fine I received this book for free from ebook discovery I voluntarily review this book This is my honest review 45 stars Another gripping romantic adventure involving the McClellans The courage of a defenseless baby s nanny to preserve the infant s life from his greedy guardians and the lengths she took to keep him alive to the extent of. Played him for a fool As they sail for America he is torn between outrage and growing tenderness for this beautiful woman he now calls wife Jessa's recklessness nearly cost him his life yet he cannot fight the burgeoning desire to tease and tempt her into sharing than just his nam.
