    She may be aloof, and more pretty than gorgeous, but Alani Rivers is the kind of woman a hot-blooded mercenary can't forget, no matter how hard he tries. So when Jackson Savor wakes up next to the naked, sleeping beauty with no memory of what happened he knows he's been drugged - even if Alani doesn't. After she was kidnapped, Alani vowed never to trust another man again. Still, something about this strong, sexy hero with the tender touch makes her want to believe him. Will the truth bring them closer than ever?

    What did you love best about Savor the Danger?

    It was a great story as well as a love story. I can't wait to read the other 2 and I bet there will be another ...the story of Arizona!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Savor the Danger?

    The ending was wonderfully happy......


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

    I enjoyed his narration....reading a book now would be impossible after becoming an audible member. There are a very few narrators I have not grown to love as the story progresses. The characters become real.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The ending was moving...I love a happy ending.


    Any additional comments?

    I do wish I had known this was a series...this was the last book of the trilogy. I will definitely go back and start at the beginning. People have written how wordy this book can be and it is at times, but I would rather it be too much than too little.

    The Bermuda Triangle. Pirates. The Peanut. What could possibly go wrong? Dragos Cuelebre needs a vacation. So does Pia, his mate. When the First Family of the Wyr head to Bermuda for some much needed R&R, it's no ordinary undertaking - and no ordinary weekend in the sun. Between hunting for ancient treasure buried beneath the waves and keeping track of their son, Liam - a.k.a. Peanut, whose Wyr abilities are manifesting far ahead of schedule - it's a miracle that Pia and Dragos can get any time together. They're determined to make the most of each moment, no matter who tries to get in their way.

    Story

    This nearly 4 hour story packs a lot of punch and a tremendous cliffhanger too! I just love it. This story is very hot and sexy with some sadness and mystery as well. I love the narrator...a female with a wicked Russian male accent! So just continue to string me along with these short stories because I am hooked.

    When I can visualize every scene, smell the smoke as it rises from the chimney, feel Wolf's scars, hear his scream on the mountain and taste the strong black coffee he drinks I know I have just listened to one of the most amazing stories I have ever read or heard. The narration was just as amazing in bringing this wonderful story to life. If you don't listen for yourself, you are missing out!

    Half-shifter Shaya Critchley may hold a submissive role in her wolf pack, but the petite redhead refuses to let an Alpha male interfere in her life. Furious and humiliated after her mate refused to claim her, she runs off to hide among the humans. Why wait around for an Alpha male to love her when he’d obviously prefer to ignore her?

All he knew was that ever since he saw Manet Hall, he'd been enchanted - and obsessed - with it. So when the opportunity to buy the house comes up Declan jumps at the chance to live out a dream.

Leila is doomed to a life of solitude ... until creatures of the night kidnap her, forcing her to reach out with a telepathic distress call to the world's most infamous vampire. Vlad Tepesh inspired the greatest vampire legend of all - but whatever you do, don't call him Dracula.

    If you love Cat and Bones I think you will like this new series. This series is a "cousin" to Cat and Bones and they are even mentioned. Very hot and sexy couple Vlad and Leila are just getting to know each other, they both have unique powers and I believe they are on their way to being a super couple fighting the bad guys. The narrator is great and has really great accents, I get goose bumps when she does Bones because I love him so much!

    The last thing Boston Detective D. D. Warren remembers is walking the crime scene after dark. Then, a creaking floorboard, a low voice crooning in her ear… She is later told she managed to discharge her weapon three times. All she knows is that she is seriously injured, unable to move her left arm, unable to return to work. My sister is Shana Day, a notorious murderer who first killed at fourteen. Incarcerated for thirty years, she has now murdered more people while in prison than she did as a free woman.

    I debated listening due to the bad reviews, but I love Lisa Gardner and never have been disappointed by any of her books. I loved this book. Creepy is her style and it is on full display here. Kirsten Potter is excellent as always. Look beyond the reviews and have trust in the author, if you have loved them in the past more than likely they won't disappoint.

    One night was all it took, and I forgot everything and anything except the sexy fighter in the ring who sets my mind ablaze and my body on fire with wanting. Remington Tate is the strongest, most confusing man I've ever met in my life. He's the star of the dangerous underground fighting circuit, and I'm drawn to him as I've never been drawn to anything in my life. I forget who I am, what I want, with just one look from him. When he's near, I need to remind myself that I am strong - but he is stronger.

    This listen was a little immature for my taste. Part one was all about the foreplay and part two the sex. I did not enjoy the narrator, she added to the immaturity of the story. Now Book 2, I see, is from Remy's point of view and narrated by Sebastion York, this may be more my style so I just may give it a chance.

    I loved this medieval romance. Unique plot, beautiful love story with lots of suspense and great characters. Sexually tasteful, the little falcon and brave warrior make a grand duo! The narrator was wonderful at times but grizzly voiced at others, the wonderful outweighed the not though and I really enjoyed her. I will continue on with 2 & 3 and I wish she would write Sven's story as he is the most mysterious character of all.

    Story

    I tried to come up with an eyecatching headline but this book has so much it wouldn't fit. First the story, intense and thrilling, it gave me palpitations. Second, the writing, beautiful, descriptive and melodic, I can picture every tree, clapboard on the old houses, gardens and dark areas that I won't give away. Lastly, the narration, primarily told by mother and daughter, I didn't realize this until midway through part one. I already love Sofia Willingham and the others did a great job too. This is the first book in a long time I wanted to relisten to immediately upon finishing it. I highly recommend.
