Right up there with Lord of Scoundrel, Lorreta Chase has a way with words and captures the reader with an unusual story that you just can't put down. I am a huge fan of well written period romance novels, and this book is one of those that doesn't have the extreme emotional highs and lows that some other books would have, but still have plenty of action and drama to keep the readers on the toes. I know some readers have complained that there are too much historical references that might have bogged down the flow, which I wholeheartedly disagree because I didn't find it hindering the story plot one bit — in fact it was necessary in my opinion to create the surrounding for the story to evolve in and I actually quite enjoyed it. I liked that in this story, there are always redeeming qualities even for the worst villain, and the most refreshing thing about this book is that the hero is someone who doesn't have a crazy temper and is level headed, and lastly acts like a normal human being. Crazy as it seems, it is very refreshing in a historical period romance, as a lot of the stories are plagued with heroes of that crazy sort. For me, this was a light read, and definitely have it's comedic value at certain points. Highly recommended!

I enjoyed The Lion's Daughter more in audio than I did in print. I had read the book a number of years ago and the plot didn't stick with me so I got to experience the book like it was brand new. Kate Reading and Loretta Chase are a perfect pairing for me. Reading does a great job with the male characters; they are all distinct but sound masculine enough to my ear. I love the character of Esme who is not your traditional herione and Valarian's realization that he needs to grow up in order to deserve Esme. The non-traditional setting for part of the book was a treat and I love Chase's prose. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series Captives of the Night.

A rather boring story very well read. It is not up to Loretta Chase's usual high standard as far as I am concerned. Kate Reading is an extremely good narrator. I'll look out for her on other recordings.
