This weekend, Eileen posted a wonderful review of The Crusader’s Heart on her blog, Booktalk with Eileen. She listened to the audio edition, narrated by Tim Gerard Reynolds. The review post is titled Historical Romance to Capture Your Heart, which is a bit of foreshadowing for this lovely review. 🙂
Here’s her final comment:
“I…highly recommend this read to those who love this period in history and love a dangerous challenge to a happy ever after ending.”
The review also has a summary of the story, so you might want to hop over to her blog and read the whole thing.

Yesterday, Debbie Haupt posted a review of the audio edition of Wyvern’s Mate on her blog, The Reading Frenzy. It’s a lovely review, so I’m sharing it with you today.
Here’s a good bit:
“Deborah Cooke’s first in her new Dragons of Incendium series is a masterful melding of Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Paranormal romance. Her cast of characters are colorful in dragon or human form, her imaginative world is both familiar and foreign and her stars, the defiant yet compassionate heroine and school of hard knocks hero, rock the universe. Her dialogue is fast paced and fluent and she completes her tale brilliantly in an economy of pages. I can’t wait for the next dynamic dragon tale!
The sultry voice of Saskia Maarleveld is the perfect choice for Cooke’s debut Fantasy series in audio, starring Troy and Drakina the shape-shifting princess of Incendium. Listening to the novel enhances the enjoyment of Wyvern’s Mate in multiple ways; one is learning the correct pronunciations another is the satisfying pace, inflections and emotional narration of Saskia.”
Thanks, Deb, for the wonderful review!

It seems to be the week for great audio reviews, which makes me very happy. Here’s an awesome one from Eniko for the audiobook of The Warrior’s Prize.
It’s a five star review!
“I think this has to be my fave of the series. I loved them all, but this one speaks to me more. Elisabeth is a woman after my own heart, she believes in herself and goes for what she wants and she wants Raphael. I want him too LOL he joins the ranks of my fave book boyfriends. He is rough around the edges because of his life from an early age, but he is a good man. What a twist in the middle of the story, and a bigger one towards the end, bigger than the usual ones the author throws into the story. The story weaves wonderfully, I found myself one moment saying YES and the next OH NOOOO, or laughing the next, it kept me on the edge for sure. A true love-conquers-all story with a well deserved HEA ending *sigh*
Saskia Maarlaveld delivered a gem of a story as usual. Her talent amazes me every time, and her voice is truly a marvel. Thank you for the enjoyable story and the many hours of listening bliss.”
Isn’t that a great review?

Debbie Haupt reviewed The Ballad of Rosamunde in audio on her blog today.
“It’s a story of unrequited love, betrayal and redemption told in her excellent epic medieval mode with period perfect vistas, dialogue and characters that jump off the page…The audible edition is once again put in the capable hands/voice of the brilliant Saskia Maarleveld, who has a way of bringing the listener body and soul into the story. And whose mesmerizing voice and seductive accent performs both male and female, fae and human characters meticulously with her marvelous vocal range and perfect intonations.”
The Ballad of Rosamunde is available in audio, and is included in the digital bundle, The Jewels of Kinfairlie Boxed Set. You can buy it on its own in digital format from my online store.
