    Miss Jane Fairfield can't do anything right. When she's in company, she always says the wrong thing - and rather too much of it. No matter how costly they are, her gowns fall on the unfortunate side of fashion. Even her immense dowry can't save her from being an object of derision. And that's precisely what she wants. She'll do anything, even risk humiliation, if it means she can stay unmarried and keep her sister safe. Mr. Oliver Marshall has to do everything right. He's the bastard son of a duke, raised in humble circumstances...

    What did you love best about The Heiress Effect?

    The witty banter, down to earth characters in the high society.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Heiress Effect?

    When the h/h actually start out being honest with each other.


    Which character – as performed by Rosalyn Landor – was your favorite?

    Jane


    Any additional comments?

    This was my 1st time reading a book by Courtney Milan. I picked a good one with enjoyable characters, not a lot of bickering between h/h, actually they developed a friendship with honest, witty, & forthright dialogue. A page turner that you want to keep reading.

    It's Christmas in Half-Moon Hollow and newly turned vampire Iris Scanlon-Calix wants to make Gigi's first visit home from college as normal and special as possible. It's taken months for Iris to work up the nerve to spend time around her baby sister after her vampire transition, so she enlists help from Jane Jameson and Company to keep her blood-thirst under control and assure Gigi's safety. Gigi, on the other hand, has problems of her own, including the demise of her relationship with high school sweetheart, Ben, and a looming job interview with Ophelia Lambert, the scariest potential employer in the Hollow.

    Connor MacKiernan, a descendant of the Fae Prince, is a warrior who lives only for honor and duty. Though he's vowed never to marry, that's exactly what he must do to save his sister. Enter a little Faerie magic, and the search for a bride is on. Caitlyn Coryell is having a really bad day - she just discovered her fiance with another woman! Imagine her surprise when she puts on some sexy lingerie and an antique pendant and Connor appears in her bedroom, begging for her help. He offers a simple yet outrageous adventure: travel to his time, marry him, and return home.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If the author would have wrote the first two thirds of the story like the last third. The main characters didn't communicate for most of the book. Also a better narrator, her Scots accent was off.


    Has Thirty Nights with a Highland Husband turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, will listen to one of the Highlander series written by Karen Marie Moning. I know I won't be disappointed, and the narrator, Phil Gigante, is great too.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Improve accent and not sound like a spoiled teenager.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Dissatisfied

    Charley Davidson isn’t your everyday, run-of-the-mill grim reaper. She’s more of a paranormal private eye/grim reaper extraordinaire. However, she gets sidetracked when the sexy, sultry son of Satan, Reyes Farrow, moves in next door. To further complicate matters, Reyes is her main suspect in an arson case. Charley has vowed to stay away from him until she can find out the truth... but then dead women start appearing in her apartment, one after another, each lost, confused, and terrified beyond reason.

    Where does Fifth Grave Past the Light rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book and series ranks at the top of my list.


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

    The best narrator for this series, she brings uniqueness to each character.


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

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    If you like humor, romance, mystery, and paranormal, weaved together by a very talented author & narrator this series is for you.
    It is best to start at the beginning of the series for each book builds upon the others and the characters develop throughout.
    Can't say enough about the uniqueness of this storyline.
    Note:
    There is adult language and situations, not for young readers, but this author does have other books for teens.

    Annabel was about to take the veil to become a nun, when her mother suddenly arrived at the abbey to take her home...so that she can marry the Scottish laird who is betrothed to her runaway sister! She knows nothing about being a wife, nothing about how to run a household, and definitely nothing about the marriage bed. From the moment Ross MacKay sets eyes on Annabel, he is taken with his shy, sweet bride...and the fact that she's blessed with lush curves only makes him utter his own prayers of thanks. But when an enemy endangers her life, he'll move the Highlands themselves to save her.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Lynsay Sands is a talented author. I enjoy her lighthearted, humorous work. Today's world is filled with enough strife that it is good to read/listen to stories that put a smile on your face & touch your heart. This story just was not up to her usual talent.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Narrated with more emotion, h/h with stronger personalities, and more humor.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Good voice but not enough emotion; more like reading rather than narrating.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Possibly


    Any additional comments?

    I look forward to better historical romance from this talented author.

    Nola Leary would have been content to stay in Kilcairy, Ireland, healing villagers at her family’s clinic with a mix of magic and modern medicine. But a series of ill-timed omens and a deathbed promise to her grandmother have sent her on a quest to Half-Moon Hollow, Kentucky, to secure her family’s magical potency for the next generation. Her supernatural task? To unearth four artifacts hidden by her grandfather before a rival magical family beats her to it. Complication One: The artifacts are lost somewhere in vampire Jane Jameson’s occult bookshop. Complication Two: Her new neighbor, Jed Trudeau, keeps turning up half-naked at the strangest times....

    Would you try another book from Molly Harper and/or Amanda Ronconi?

    Yes, I like both


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The second half of the book was the most interesting.. Least: The first half moved slow,also took awhile to get used to listening to a great narrator having to create an accent that was a mish mash of three. After a while it was ok but at beginning it was slightly irritating.


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

    Yes! She is a great narrator, but as mentioned above this one wasn't her best. I think it was more the character, who had a mixture of several accents that took away from it somewhat.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    Nola and Jed clearing the air and working together sooner.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed having characters from previous books in the series being an intricate part of the story. Would have rated overall and story 3.5 if you were able to use half stars. All in all it was a good book, not one of her best, just a little slow in first half.

    The last person Daria Babcock expects to find in her grandmother’s home is a brawny, naked Highlander. She doesn’t buy Mamie’s explanation about finding the poor man shot in the woods. Nor does she trust the gorgeous laird, who insists his own memory fails him. But Daria came to Scotland looking for adventure and romance, and after the intriguing stranger kidnaps her, she gets her wish - and so much more....

    Wouldn't know


    Has The Last Debutante turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Extremely ! Terrible narration. The book is a Scottish tale and this
    Narrator simply is awful at her Scots accent.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No. Too slow, poor narration, and too much conflict & handwringing in relationship between
    Hero/ heroine.


    Any additional comments?

    Hope Julia London gets back in form and chooses better narrator
    For each story.

    The storyline. Keeps you into it and you don't want to stop listening.


    What other book might you compare Prince Charming to and why?

    Never Seduce A Scot by Maya Banks
    Both had strong heroines who overcame many obstacles and grew into a more mature and better person throughout the story.
    The heros were impressive men, who also grew into better people.
    Different countries but each were set in a beautiful part of the world.


    What about Rosalyn Landor’s performance did you like?

    Everything! She is very talented and does well with distinguishing different characters, accents, and sexes.


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

    Lucas and Taylor's walk back home after a harrowing experience with her uncle.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope Julie Garwood writes many more quality novels and has Rosalyn Landor narrate
    them.
    I definetely recommend this book to those who love historical romance, with action, wit, and some suspense thrown in.

    This is the 2nd book of the McCabe series and it's a good one. Love the way the relationship grows between h/h. Emotion,fun, wit, action, & love that endures. I didn't want to stop listening. You can read them alone but I recommend starting at the beginning of the series for you are familiar with the characters from previous book which adds to the depth of the story.
