    Orphaned at 13, a mail-order bride at 14, widowed at 16, Sarah Kennedy has learned to depend upon no one but herself, reserving all her love for her younger brother Conner, and for the wounded hawks she heals and returns to the air. Personal tragedy has taught Case Maxwell to love nothing that can die, and that justice is blind. But when a confrontation with his sworn enemies, the Culpepper clan, leaves the hardened Civil War veteran near death, Case finds himself under the tender, unwanted care of Sarah Kennedy.

    Denise From Minnesota says: "Good story HORRIBLE Narrator"
    "Winter Fire...WOW!"
    Overall

    The book was really good but the narrator was horrible.
    I have tremendously enjoyed Ms Lowell's 'Only' series and would highly recommend the books to all who enjoy a bit of erotica with a good story line.
    The narrator really annoyed me. I had to rewind many times to make sense of what she was saying.

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old - when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer. Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he’s hounded Atticus for centuries....

    Where does Hounded rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book is part of a series that I count among my most favorite reads.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Hounded?

    The whole series to-date is very memorable because of the very clever dialogue. I love books that have the ability to make you travel with its characters as they journey through the storyline.


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

    I just can't imagine anyone other than Luke Daniels narrating this series. I have completely fallen for Oberon, the Irish wolfhound, and his very witty telepathic dialogue. Luke Daniels is so responsible for my loving this series.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely.


    Any additional comments?

    If you like well written books with very intelligent and witty dialogue between characters, and if you like that a reader is so good that he actually draws you into the action, Then...The Iron Druid Chronicles series are the books for you.

    Recently widowed, grieving Los Angeles midwife/nurse Melinda Monroe answers a small upstate town's ad for help. Nestled amongst California's giant redwoods, quaint Virgin River is host to many quirky characters - including bar owner Jack Sheridan, who may be just the man to make Melinda smile again.

    Houston mom says: "Great author if you like Nora Roberts!"
    "I am hooked! I love Virgin River and it's people."

    If you could sum up Virgin River in three words, what would they be?

    What a place!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jack Sheridan is my guy. He is what every woman wants in a man. He is so comfortable with who he is that he is not afraid to show compassion. He knows how to 'surrender' to life's situations and I love how he learns to love his woman.


    Have you listened to any of Therese Plummer???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have so many audible books narrated by Therese Plummer (is she not also Savannah Richards?). I find her voice so comforting and I like that she makes each character's voice distinctive. Her narration played a big part in my decision to purchase all of the books in the Virgin River series.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    There were parts where I laughed and parts where I cried.


    Any additional comments?

    If you like stories that make you root for many of its characters and that make you feel good, then the Virgin River serie is for you.

    The beloved #1 Essence best-selling authors of Tryin' to Sleep in the Bed You Made now deliver a novel in which you'll meet their most unforgettable characters yet. Carmen, Jewel, and Regina could not be more different. When they meet as freshmen at Columbia University, they're pretty confident that a friendship among them isn't in the cards.

    This is my first book review. Not because this is the best book I have ever read, but this is my first opportunity to express my opinion.
    I loved this book. It is so well written. I absolutely loved the voice of the reader. I look forward to the next book by these two authors.
