    On the midnight shift at a hospital in rural Maine, Dr. Luke Findley is expecting another quiet evening of frostbite and the occasional domestic dispute. But the minute Lanore McIlvrae—Lanny—walks into his ER, she changes his life forever. A mysterious woman with a past and plenty of dark secrets, Lanny is unlike anyone Luke has ever met. He is inexplicably drawn to her...despite the fact that she is a murder suspect with a police escort.

    Story

    I was impressed with this audiobook, is beautifully written and contains so many details that makes you feel you are watching everything instead of hearing it.
    I was so smitten by this book that I even bought the paperback on Amazon.com just because is a must read ... all over again ... many many times.
    I loved the characters, each one of them has a story to tell, there should be more to this story! Can't wait for more!
    If you don't know what it is about, is a wonderful tale that talks about deep love, lust, obsession, greed, vanity and so many other things ... it will really leave you wanting more of this story.

    Scott Cunningham's classic introduction to Wicca is about how to live life magically, spiritually, and wholly attuned with nature. It is a book of sense and common sense, not only about magick but also about religion and one of the most critical issues of today: how to achieve the much-needed and wholesome relationship with our Earth. Cunningham presents Wicca as it is today: a gentle, Earth-oriented religion dedicated to the Goddess and God. Wicca also includes Cunningham's own Book of Shadows.

    This is a very good book which includes a book of shadows, the accompanying reference guide is helpful because it gives you the symbolic information so you don't get that lost on the listening of this great audiobook.
    If you are just beginning your way into Wicca, this is very helpful and it is great that Audible has this! You will love this book so much you will sure get the hard copy of it. :)

    This was the very first vampire thriller! Pure innocence becomes the target of age-old evil. Virtuous Laura has grown up in a solitary castle and longs for a close friend. Her wish seems granted with the arrival of a beautiful and mysterious stranger named Carmilla. A friendship develops but the brooding mood and sexual overtones mar Laura's happiness. Will she escape with her life and spirit?

    Story

    I simply loved Carmilla, from the moment you begin listening you feel attracted to this story and you need to know how it unravels and then leaves you impressed.
    You know the character "Carmilla" has to be something wicked but you can't stop the recording, is addictive and entertaining! A must listen for any vampire story lovers out there!

    Paulo Coelho's enchanting novel has inspired a devoted following around the world. This story, dazzling in its simplicity and wisdom, is about an Andalusian shepherd boy named Santiago who travels from his homeland in Spain to the Egyptian desert in search of treasure buried in the Pyramids. Along the way he meets a Gypsy woman, a man who calls himself king, and an Alchemist, all of whom point Santiago in the direction of his quest.

    What a wonderful thing is to have such a talented actor narrating this amazing book!
    The story completely captured me and it thought me a lot of things. Paulo Coelho is like a wizard, and the ultimate magic of this book is the narrative.
    It had to be an actor! What a way to act, it is as if you are next to him ... Lovely!
    A lot of lessons for my life just within this one book...!

    Story

    In the first minutes of this book I didn't have any hope for it; I thought it was another easy romance. When you really connect to the story and you start imagining their worlds and phases ... it blows your mind. This is a truly wonderful novel; if you really try to understand their point of view you will be amazed. Give it a try!
    I can listen to it more than 2 times and I don't get bored, because it has some suspense and drama in it. I'm waiting for the sequel as it is supposed to be a trilogy. Thumbs up!

    If you can count on one thing from "Madea" Mabel Simmons, star of Diary of a Mad Black Woman and Madea's Family Reunion, it's that she's got something to say. She's the beloved, hilarious, sharp-witted, pistol-packing grandmother who's watching out and speaking her mind. Now Madea is telling her own story, dishing her memoirs and hard-won, hilarious wisdom in her own inimitable voice (with a little help from her friend Tyler Perry).

    Elijah Mathew smith says: "Absolutely Hysterical"

    Overall

    Fantastic! I can't stop listening to this book! It is wonderful. Madea is a wonderful woman who does not take any BS, she is happy just the way she is and I learnt a LOT from her on every chapter. Not only this book is hilarious... is life changing.
