    Only desperation could bring Duncan Pennethorne, the infamous Earl of Sheringford, back home after the spectacular scandal that had shocked even the jaded ton. Forced to wed in 15 days or be cut off without a penny, Duncan chooses the one woman in London in frantic need of a husband. A lie to an old flame forces Margaret Huxtable to accept the irresistible stranger's offer. But once she discovers who he really is, it's too late - she's already betrothed to the wickedly sensual rakehell.

    The book is really entertaining but made more so by the narrator. I always enjoy listening to Anne Flosnik.

    I think that there should definitely be something in the marketing that lets you know that a book is written in multiple parts and you have to buy each one individually. This trend is ridiculous. I feel completely ripped off because now I either do not listen to the whole story or pay 3 times as much as I thought because I now know it is in 3 parts - or I guess it could be more and they just haven't published all of the parts. Really?

    Meeting Jett was like lightning. Dangerous. Better left untouched. And better forgotten. But lightning always strikes twice. Brooke Stewart, a realtor in New York, doesn't do relationships. When she's sent to a remote estate to finalize a real estate deal, she discovers her new boss is none other than the guy she left naked in bed. Sexy, dangerously handsome, and arrogant Jett Mayfield attracts trouble, and women, like a lightning rod. But the night he meets Brooke he gets more than he bargained for.

    Story

    I am really tired of publishing companies and authors writing a novel and splitting it into two or three parts to sell for more $. Just charge more for it to begin with and provide the whole story. Really people! I feel ripped off. It just ends with the biggest cliff hanger. Seems like Fifty Shades started this trend it is getting worse all the time.

    Elisabeth Anderson has seen Trevor and his friends at the infamous Manhattan BDSM club WhipperSnapper, where everyone calls them the BAD Boys, for "Billionaire Arrogant Doms." The BAD Boys--Trevor Brooks, Marc Wilde, and Roman Chase - are aptly named; they've made money hand over fist due to their aggressive investing at the Brooks Wilde Chase Fund. These guys are so rich they can get away with anything, or so the rumors go.

    Story

    It's hard to tell if the story would be better because the narrator had a cadence of reading 3 or 4 words at a time and dragging out the 4th word to be longer the 2 syllables. No one talks like this so why did she read like this. The male voices were more feminine than the female voices but the worst part was the cadence. It's like really fast 'talking about' then really long childrennnnnnnnnn. It's awful. I would think that the good folks at audible would actually listen to their narrators before publishing a book and charging people for it. Very disappointing.

    Dana Birch vowed never to put herself at the mercy of a powerful man. She became a deputy so that she could take care of herself, and protect those she loved. Especially her best friends, the Titan sisters. Twenty years ago, Garth Duncan swore revenge on Jed Titan for abandoning Garth and his mother. Now he's back to fulfill that promise, even if Jed's daughters get caught in the crosshairs. All that stands between him and his goal is Dana, her gun, and a growing passion that can't be denied.

    Story

    I was looking forward to this last story in the series but the narrator makes it very difficult to listen to. She sounds sort of whiney and Garth's voice is pretty high pitched. Talk about emasculating the hero. The cadence was difficult to get through as well. She sort of pauses after every 3 or 4 words. Who talks like that? As you can tell, the most of what I recall is about the narrator and not the story. I quit listening after about two hours and have purchased it from Barnes & Noble to read it instead.

When he encountered sweet kindergarten teacher Annie McCoy, he knew she'd make him look like a perfect angel, though it would take some devilish manipulation.

    The narrator ruins this. She starts in on the southern accents slurring the words and sentencing and speaking them so fast that I often had to rewind and replay to figure out what she was saying. That was awful. Very distracting.

    Macbeth: A Novel brings the intricacy and grit of the historical thriller to Shakespeare’s tale of political intrigue, treachery, and murder. In this full-length novel written exclusively for audio, authors A. J. Hartley and David Hewson rethink literature’s most infamous married couple, grounding them in a medieval Scotland whose military and political upheavals are as stark and dramatic as the landscape in which they are played.

    I had a hard time getting through the story because the narration is just boring, flat, no real emotion. It's a good book to listen to if you want to go to sleep. It just drones on and on. I didn't finish it.

    Rising sous-chef Kelly Matlock's sudden collapse at work is a wake-up call. Disillusioned and burned out, she's retreated to her sister Jillian's house in Virgin River to rest and reevaluate. Puttering in Jill's garden and cooking with her heirloom vegetables is wonderful, but Virgin River is a far cry from San Francisco. Kelly's starting to feel a little too unmotivated… until she meets Lief Holbrook.
