    Geoff is in the city, living the gay life to the hilt, when his father's death convinces him to return to the family farm. Discovering a young Amish man asleep in his barn, Geoff learns that Eli is spending a year away from the community before accepting baptism into the church.

    Where does Love Means... No Shame rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Having listened to the whole series of Love Means... I found I actually started part way through, this being the first on my list. I found it moving and wanted to know what would happen next to people that showed they cared about others more than themselves, a rear find in this day and age. All in all close to the top of my list.


    What other book might you compare Love Means... No Shame to and why?

    I found I loved the whole series for different reasons in each story.


    What aspect of R. Kirstein’s performance would you have changed?

    I wouldn't change the performance though I prefer Sean's voice. I still enjoyed the hours of listening.


    If you could rename Love Means... No Shame, what would you call it?

    I like the title. If you really love someone there is no shame. No matter who you love, love is love. We either love and live or just survive the world alone.


    Any additional comments?

    I have enjoyed listening to this audio book several times and will many times to come. Each to there own

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

    I would recommend this to friends as long as I knew they loved Gay Romance as well as a little action.
    Since I first listened to Cut and Run I was hooked. Ty and Zane face life but the same way we all do, not head on but the hard way. They have each other and that is the best place to start.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The deveoplement of the relationship between them is perfect. We all make mistakes, it's how those we love react, Ty has become Zane's strength, while Zane is Ty's calming balance.Ty knows he loves Zane, Zane is commited to Ty but affraid of what that means and the tanggles that it will bring.


    Which character – as performed by Sean Crisden – was your favorite?

    From the very beginning it was Ty, I love the cheeky fun loving side.


    Who was the most memorable character of Fish & Chips and why?

    Zane in this book faces some of his most deep seated fears. And for me he was the most memorable. Ty holds his place in the world well, a strength and power that can be so easily over looked simply because he dosen't push it inot your face. Zane is a support Ty has realised he would be lost without. Like all things we need a rock and center in our lives.

    Baltimore is a city in alarming distress. Rising violence is fanning the flames of public outrage. Thus the FBI’s latest ideas to improve public relations: a municipal softball league and workshops for community leaders. But the new commitments just mean more time Special Agents Ty Grady and Zane Garrett have to spend apart when they’re happily exploring how to be more than by-the-book partners. Then the latest spate of crime explodes in their faces—literally.

    Where does Divide and Conquer rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top of the cut and run series. Their relationship is growing and becoming more than just a wanted desire, it's a living breathing need.


    What other book might you compare Divide and Conquer to and why?

    I haven't listened to many like Divide and Conquer. But for emotional pulls and twists i have enjoyed 'Love means courage' many times.


    Have you listened to any of Sean Crisden’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I love the way Sean performs, only i find i can sometimes link a voice in one book to another book, not that it detracts for me. I have bought books simply because he has read them.


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

    God yes. If I could have I would, how ever I did listen to it over two evening shifts and loved every single minute.

    Spurned by his father and driven from his home, Stone Hillyard is struggling to find shelter in the Michigan winter when he lucks upon the horse farm run by Geoff Laughton and his partner Eli. They take him in, warm him up, and give him a job working with their No Boundaries therapy riding program. A drunk driver left Preston Harding unable to walk, and after months of hard work, his therapist recommends Geoff and Eli’s program. But Preston’s anger and arrogance nearly get him kicked out until Stone intercedes on his behalf.

    Would you listen to Love Means Freedom again? Why?

    Yes. Touching on a subject that is all to often ignored or pushed away Love Means Freedom shows life can be put back on track with time careing friends and love ones.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Love Means Freedom?

    When Stone opens up about his past to Adele, if only we all had someone like this lovely strong caring woman who doesn't judge only supports with kindness wisdom and humour.


    Which character – as performed by Sean Crisden – was your favorite?

    I love Robbie. He may be blind but he sees straight to the truth. He might be frightened of the unknown but he's willing to try to love and to be there for others.


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

    The first time Stone trusts Preston to make love to him. After everything Stone's been through to finally trust again knowing he's going to loose brought up tears.

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

    To a friend with an open mind yes i would recommend this audio book. Not everyone is open and comfortable with the gay world even now. But to admit you Love and Care about another is important Cliff and Len faced hard times and came through because they were there for each other.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    On reflection Len. He's quietly strong and supportive, accepting Cliff as a package deal with his young son took a lot of heart and goodness.


    What three words best describe Sawyer Allerde’s performance?

    Entertaining. Easy. Warming.
