4.5 “Mountain Man & His Duchess” Stars for the story and 5 Stars for Emma Taylor’s narration!
All I can say is that Kristen Ashley is one hell of a writer! I’m not sure too many other authors could possibly keep my interest for over 25 hours of audio!! However, The Gamble is one of the few exceptions that is sure to keep you coming back for more until you have devoured the entire saga. Moreover, not only does The Gamble contain a fantastic romance between the irresistible, alpha hero and well matched heroine, but there are also a number of interconnected side stories with a multitude of characters to keep you entertained along with the romance. There is even a big heaping of suspense, one of my favorite romance sub-genres, which will keep you guessing until the end.
Not only is the story first rate, but the narration by Emma Taylor is superb! She nails each one of the characters in this story with the perfect personality, and geographic, appropriate voice! Moreover, her way of telling the story adds to the allure and suspense, and without a doubt makes this romantic suspense title all the more mesmerizing to listen to!
All in all, The Gamble is a classic Kristen Ashley romance with an outstanding narration. If you’re a Kristen Ashley fan, and haven’t yet had the pleasure of listening to The Gamble, then I highly recommend you do.
