Anne Stuart is simply flawless in her writing style, characterizations and storylines. I am forever crushing on the male leads, identifying with the female leads: educated, yet are flawed with insecurities from everyday situations which all women regardless of whether they have experienced the event or not, can certainly relate too. The reader will gain inside knowledge regardless of the setting and understand the depth of emotions from not just our lead characters but even our co's. I laugh aloud at times and cry at the HEA's. I have not found one poorly acted narrators yet to any of Stuart's stories. I would encourage any person who is not familiar with Anne Stuart to invest the time to explore this remarkable talent.
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
Good story line for a romance read. A little bit of everything: romance (hot) adventure, and imagination.
this is part of series, but a stand alone in plot. Our hero is hot, in an Asian way...which most romances don't go that direction.
I always wanted to try this author, and my fave reader read this story so I purchased it. The author work is good, but the other readers don't have enough style to encourage me to buy more of this author.
I purchased this book due to this reader. G.Z makes all her male characters yummy. She really interprets an author heroine dead center. See her Kyra Davis series for humor. Her AKA Isabelle Gordon for hot, see (Buckhorn series)
This was a light read, so no heavy moments, but an even good listen that you will enjoy.

I have been reading the series and I love it. The voices of Jenny and I can't remember the heroines name from the first book but both were from the US but the narrator changed the voices to English and French.
Freezing in Idaho
Fast paced, yet with a deceptively laid back narrator. I like Gabra Zackman, and she was a good pairing with this author.
I want to start off by saying I love this series but the biggest drawback is the switching of narrators. My personal favorite is Ms. Xe Sands who voices the last two books and although Ms. Zackman does a passable job it just doesn't stand up to Sands especially when it comes to Reno and Taka. And most bizarre was the narrator giving Genevieve a British accent, this makes no sense.
This book has action and heat and quite a bit of sweetness to it as well. I really enjoyed the development of Taka's character. The plot is totally implausible an international man of mystery sent to eliminate a demure and innocent young lady but the characters seemed real. Ms. Stuart does such a good job developing these characters that situations that are off the wall and unrealistic seem explainable and make sense in the perspective of this novel. The interactions between Taka and Summer range from hostile, to sweet and innocent to passion overload to humor.
This book is worth a credit and if you have not read/ listened to the whole series they are all wonderful.
The violent degrading sex completely overshadowed the storyline.
The story was well read.
I would not listen to more books by this author.
Wow.. a quadruple threat! Poor flat non-inflective reader, really awful characters and character development, unbelievable setup, and, to top it all off, glorified rape fantasies! Thank goodness I got this one on sale so I only wasted a few dollars on it! Take my advice and don't waste your dollars.
i liked the mystery and would like to read/hear the one before and aft if they exist. i did have a bit of a problem with the reader which is why i did not give it five stars.
Very engaging! Exciting, I could hardly stop the story, put a copy on my iPod so I could continue listening. What also made the story was an excellent reader, she was like your inner self reading out loud, only better.
