    This was an ok listen for me, it left me wanting to continue on and see what happens but I am not rushing to download the rest of the series, I have much better in my wish list, which is large! The story is not one that I have heard before and the characters are likable enough, I will hope the rest of the series will go on sale one day! The narrator was ok, one of those that kind of grow on you by mid listen.

    Beautiful ending to a beautiful story, I loved this trilogy, similar to the This Man series, this couple fights the darkness to be together. I cannot wait for the next man JEM produces. The narrator is one of the best, she brings these characters to life and I become entranced when she narrates these stories.

Yet one innocent but irreversible mistake has left her family's fortune decimated and forced her to wed London's most nefarious nobleman. Lord Benjamin Archer is no ordinary man. Doomed to hide his disfigured face behind masks, Archer knows it's selfish to take Miranda as his bride. Yet he can't help being drawn to the flame-haired beauty whose touch sparks a passion he hasn't felt in a lifetime.

    I read a good review, several good reviews and tried it, I really, really liked it! Not only is it a historical, paranormal listen but has fantastic suspense, murder and intrigue. This listen kept the ear bud glued to me until the very end. I liked the narration and will continue on with this series.

I love the narrator, same as with the Gabriel trilogy, he can perform like the best narrators out there!

    Jason "Jase" Brady sweeps Dorothy off her feet. As Dorothy patiently waits for Jase to give her the happily-ever-after she's been dreaming about, James "Hawk" Young, a member of the Hell's Horsemen with secrets of his own, sees an opening into Dorothy's life and takes it. What follows is a long and painful journey of self-discovery and forgiveness, as Dorothy comes to realize that home was exactly where she'd left it and the love she'd forever craved had always been within her reach.

    Story

    First, 75% of this story is the retelling of books 1-3, which I listened to and loved and remember them all very well. Second, the time span of this book is about 15 years but the actual storyline is about a month long. Now the main characters are all in their 50's and 60's and frankly not very fun anymore! The epilogue involves younger club members and the children of the older/primary club members and I am just not interested in the 20 something crowd so I will end the series here and very disappointed!

    Story

    This is a good series about training and becoming a sex slave. This is NOT your feel good BDSM love story...this is a story about sadists and the slaves that love them and their lifestyle. These stories are long but there was about 2-3 hrs. of additional short stories at the end. The narrator is good. The characters happily choose this lifestyle, sign contracts, and may leave whenever they want with stipulations and though I cringe with some of the behavior endured, I realize that is what they want. This is #2 and I plan to continue on with the series.

    Award-winning author William Kent Krueger has gained an immense fan base for his Cork O’Connor series. In Ordinary Grace, Krueger looks back to 1961 to tell the story of Frank Drum, a boy on the cusp of manhood. A typical 13-year-old with a strong, loving family, Frank is devastated when a tragedy forces him to face the unthinkable - and to take on a maturity beyond his years.

    Story

    This was a great daily deal pick for me. The story from the eyes of a 13 year old boy and the summer of many deaths. This story had great characters, plot and flowed like a summer from anyone's childhood. This is a story of loss and how pretty much your average family can recover. Well written and narrated, this listen was well deserved of the many 5 star reviews it received!

    I loved the Stark Trilogy and will listen to anything about Nikki and Damien. This short story tells of their first Valentine's Day together...a spa trip to the Bahamas, romance and very hot sex! A new character is introduced, Jackson Steele, he sounds quite interesting! The narration by Sofia Willingham is great as usual! Looking forward to more of Mr. Steele!

Imbued with otherworldly powers but invisible to the living, she haunts her beloved home, scaring away trespassers - until she encounters a ruthless immortal even more terrifying than Néomi herself.

    Story

    Similar but different than others in the series. Still sexy hot as only Kresley Cole can dish out but unique in the addition of a new paranormal character. Characters from other stories continue to migrate in and out, either by mention or active participation in the story. I don't know how Petkoff keeps them all straight but he does a great job!

    If you liked The Professionals, this story is about brother #2, Max. This listen oozes sensuality like book #1 from beginning to end, very hot, steamy and sexy! The narrator, again, does a great job with realistic accents and emotion throughout, loved it! There is a third brother so I anticipate book #3!
