Publisher's Summary

Listeners from coast to coast have fallen in love with her strong, forceful heroes and fiery heroines. Now award-winner Miriam Minger sweeps you into a world of epic adventure and bold passion in the O'Byrne Brides Series!

Wild Angel - Ronan was a legend among men...and the last thing he needed was a troublesome woman. Yet this fierce Irish warrior took a deathbed oath to protect a chieftain's rebellious daughter.

Triona was a hellion of a woman...who would let no man rule her. Raised in the ways of a warrior, she defied Ronan's every command. So he planned to marry her off, to be rid of the wild lass forever. But in the heat of battle - enflamed by her passionate spirit - Ronan decided he wanted this beautiful, impossible woman for himself!

Very good Irish historical romance

I really liked this book! Yes our heroine Triona was immature at times but still this story has the three elements I need to have on historical romances in order to like them: interesting adventure, hot romance and great narration. This book had all three so I do recommend it if you like Irish/highlander historical romances.

Wonderful Irish Historical Romance

Would you consider the audio edition of Wild Angel to be better than the print version?

N/A I've not read the print version

What was one of the most memorable moments of Wild Angel?

I enjoy the swim in the loch as Ronnan, Treaona, and Nile return to the stronghold.

Which character – as performed by Elizabeth Klett – was your favorite?

I enjoyed the attitude and wonderful Irish lilt that Ms Klett put into the voice of Treaona.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Battles rage everywhere in Ireland! Between the English Crown and the Irish. Between clans. And between the dark Irish Chieftain of clan O'Byrne and the firey haired adopted daughter of the head of clan O'Toole. And who will win which battles? Only time and love will tell.

Decent but dragging

This book is okay, at first I really liked the main character but about halfway through I started to find her trying and unnecessarily rude and callous

Exciting adventure

I enjoyed the story very much. It was full of adventure and suspense. You didn't know what would happen next.
The narrator did a wonderful job reading the story.

Great narrator, not sure on the story

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Not really. I did not like the leads at all. It just wasn't the right fit for me.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The setting is lovely. I wish I could come across more romances with an Irish flair!

What does Elizabeth Klett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She does a wonderful job with the voices and has a great pace. She is the reason I kept listening long after I was tired of the story. She is definitely a credit to this book.

What would have made this romance irresistible?

A heroine who wasn't so whines and annoying? Sorry, she really was not a favorite of mine.

spiteful bitch?????

The way Angela Dawe delivered Trionna had her come off as a truly unlikeable spiteful bitch... but I don't think that was how the written words were meant... The narrator is stellar but the attitude of the one character was SO extreme that I was actually hating her and had to remind myself to hear the words not the speaking... Wonderful book.... but for that one thing.
Credit worthy? Yes!
Heat factor? Verrry low but for a few moments of extreme.
Tears? Not for me...
Laughter? A few good chuckles to be sure.
Violence? Not like most... very little of the bloody battles actually.

Wonderful Irish Historical Novel Finally on Audio!

Any additional comments?

Wild Angel is a historical romance originally written in 1994 by Miriam Minger. I love historical romance novels, especially Irish/highlander romances set in the 12th and 13th centuries. This novel and audio book did not disappoint. The heroine is a feisty, head strong, red headed warrior and the hero is an "alpha male" Irish rebel who can't help but fall in love with the lass.

The story begins when Chieftain Fineen O'Toole finds 6 month old Triona in the arms of her dead Norman mother in the middle of the forest. He adopts her knowing that a Norman clan wants her dead. She grows up a happy little girl, following underfoot of her older brother Conor and Fineen's Godson, Ronan O'Byrne. After Conor's death at the hands of the Normans, and on Fineen's own deathbed, he makes Ronan vow to become Triona's guardian. He does so, planning to marry her off as soon as possible. In true historical romance fashion, Ronin is jealous of anyone who even looks at Triona, and over time learns to respect her unbreakable spirit.

Elizabeth Klett’s narration is simply fantastic. She really brings the characters to life, giving each character their own distinct voice. She is also able to switch genders and generations with ease.

Simply put, Wild Angel is a wonderful historical romance that lasts the test of time. I highly recommend it!

Sweet romance with fire

This was a delightful listen that has fire from the heart, with thrilling danger and excitement. I do love a strong head woman and man they make the best romances. It was a great plot, with wonderful characters, the author holds your interest keeping you sweep up in a story that will steal your heart. I loved the baiting and bricking as these two go head on trying to out do each other and have control. In the end it is exciting to see who ends up with it.

The narrator did a lovely job with wonderful character voices, emotion and excitement that holds your interest. You always know who is talking and what they are feeling. There is no background noise, no volume changes and no repeating of words. Her normal voice is as pleasant as her character voices.

Wild Angel

While I already had the book, which I loved, I wanted to get the audiobook to check out Elizabeth Klett. Miriam Minger has long been known as truly awesome author. This one takes place in Medieval Ireland and begins in the Wicklow Mountains of Ireland in 1190 when Finest of tools happens to be hunting when he hears a baby crying. The mother has been killed by a boar, but not before she stabs the beast with her distinctive knife. Fineen hides the baby and keeps her quiet but hears plans the Norman knights have to kill the child. Instead, he takes her home and she is raised as his own daughter. Twenty years later, after he died, she was sent to Ronan O'Byrne to protect.

To say Triona is fiesty would be an understatement. Read the story to find out about the mystery of her past and the present conflicts that result from Triona's quick Irish temper!

This was good as a book, but the audio provided by Elizabeth Klett is fabulous! Her storytelling abilities and her distinctive talent for varying the sounds of the characters voices makes it like watching a movie in your head! Excellent audiobook, easy to recommend! 😍

very long

The story in principle was good, but I found it very long I was waiting for something to happen. It finally did but I'd nearly given up. Sorry
