    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it is your typical highland romance with a happy ending. It is a series so naturally you have to find out about the other brothers. Comparing this to Ian it is a little bland but again those Scot's know how to love!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Lady Isabella's Scandalous Marriage?

    The discovery of what had been burned in the attic...


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

    I loved her in Ian's book and she is just as strong this time around...


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

    Again probably what was burned in the attic. The ending was pretty moving too, summing up what was happening with the family up until now!


    Any additional comments?

    There's four, starting with Ian MacKenzie.

    From #1 New York Times-best-selling author Nora Roberts comes a novel of a woman who needs nothing, a man who sees everything, and the web of deceit, greed, and danger that brings them together - and that could tear them apart… As a professional house-sitter and freelance writer, nothing ties Lila Emerson down - not her work, not a home, and definitely not a relationship. She spends her life moving from one job to the next, sometimes crashing at a friend 's Manhattan apartment. And though she can appreciate her clients ' extraordinary homes, their expensive collections, and their adorable pets, Lila has never longed for possessions of her own. Everything she has, including her heart, is portable.

    This listen was a little too tame for me. Very much like other NR books I've listened to without the ghosts and spirits. I did love the narrator, she has a very sexy male voice which I haven't encountered much.

    Story

    This was your usual Highland Romance with a bit of intrigue but what made it unique was the wonderful narration. Sometimes a good, authentic, male narration will do wonders for the story and Mr. Perkins did just that! This is about 4 Highlanders, friends since youth, their trials and finding love. This was #1 so there is a lot of character introduction but I plan to continue on with the series to see what happens with other three!

    Stonehart’s revelation can never change what he’s done to me. But can it be enough to make a difference in how I see him? As old questions are answered, new ones arise: Is it possible for a man to change? Is it possible for him to repent for all his sins? And, perhaps most important of all: Is it possible for me to forgive?

    My name is Amelia Gray. They call me The Graveyard Queen. I've been commissioned to restore an old cemetery in Asher Falls, South Carolina, but I'm coming to think I have another purpose here. Why is there a cemetery at the bottom of Bell Lake? Why am I drawn time and again to a hidden grave I've discovered in the woods? Something is eating away at the soul of this town - this withering kingdom - and it will only be restored if I can uncover the truth.

    This is #2 of the series and I loved it. Spooky and ghostly, perfect for Halloween! Amelia can see ghosts and she restores cemeteries and now we know why. This is the story of her birth plus a little evil in the mix. Beautiful southern narration, Amelia lives in Charleston.

    Dr. Emory Charbonneau, a pediatrician and marathon runner, disappears on a mountain road in North Carolina. By the time her husband Jeff, miffed over a recent argument, reports her missing, the trail has grown cold. Literally. Fog and ice encapsulate the mountainous wilderness and paralyze the search for her. While police suspect Jeff of "instant divorce," Emory, suffering from an unexplained head injury, regains consciousness and finds herself the captive of a man whose violent past is so dark that he won't even tell her his name.

    I enjoyed this listen but it was quite dull during much of the story. The unique ending made up for that. I felt cheated, getting the best part of the story when it was over. The narrator sounded like a radio dj to me, I didn't like him but he was tolerable.

    Brie's life changes the day Sir comes to her tiny tobacco shop. His invitation to the Submissive Training Center is about to rock this young woman's world. The renowned school is famous for its elite submissive instruction. She has no idea what will be asked of her or the boundaries that will be pushed. One thing is certain: Brie is about to learn more about herself in six weeks than she has over the previous 22 years.

    If you like to listen to all types of sex acts this is the listen for you. This story is 99% sex. I like to listen but I do like a little plot with my sex. #2 sounds like it has some substance and I look forward to following their story. This narrator, for me, was ok, she sounded forced in some of her characters. This was the education of Brie and I may have learned a thing or two as well.

    Having narrowly averted an (under)world war, Cat Crawfield wants nothing more than a little downtime with her vampire husband, Bones. Unfortunately, her gift from New Orleans’ voodoo queen just keeps on giving - leading to a personal favor that sends them into battle once again, this time against a villainous spirit. Centuries ago, Heinrich Kramer was a witch hunter. Now, every All Hallows Eve, he takes physical form to torture innocent women before burning them alive.

Across the courtroom, not meeting her eye, sits her alleged accomplice. He wears the beautiful pin-striped suit he wore on their first meeting in the Houses of Parliament, when he put his hand on her elbow, guided her to a deserted and ancient chapel, and began to undress her.

    It took me days to finish this listen, so sad and painful it was. I loved the story and could hardly wait 'til the end but it's intense and sad storyline had me taking frequent breaks. The narrator is British and is wonderful, I could visualize this story while she read. This is one of the rare books I have come across that did not have a happy ending. I am glad I chose this book, fiction that can play havoc with your emotions like this one did mine is worth the pain and sadness I endured.

    Alison Tyler, "mistress of literary erotica," has mined her memoirs, spinning a kinky fairy tale with a happily-ever-after ending. Dark Secret Love is a modern-day Story of O, a 9 1/2 Weeks - style journey fueled by lust, longing, and the search for true love.

    Inspired by her BDSM lifestyle and based on her private diaries, Tyler draws on her twenty-five years' experience penning sultry stories to create a scorching hot work of autobiographical fiction, a meta-audiobook with reality at the core.

    This is not playing at BDSM, this is the real thing, so if you are skiddish keep that in mind. I enjoyed the listen, I still have a lot of questions about the lifestyle but learned a lot. This listen is extremely erotic and has a lot of explicit sex. The story is not pretend, it is this woman's journey through the BDSM world. The narrator was very monotone and I think this was meant to be but I didn't really like it, it was tolerable though. I will listen to #2.
