    Adam Faramond, Earl of Rothbury, needs to find a wife -immediately! - or his beloved grandmother swears she'll leave him penniless. But Adam, an unrepentant rake, would only renounce a life of scandalous pleasure for one woman, the woman he's lusted after - and loved - for years. It's rather unfortunate, then, that Miss Charlotte Greene, a shy but beautiful blonde of impeccable manners and breeding, would never consent to be the blushing bride of a rogue...or so he thinks. But Charlotte believes that the earl, the only man whose touch leaves her trembling with desire, would never want a woman like her.

    Where does To Wed a Wicked Earl rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I've listened to over 100 books and this is one of my top 10 which says alot.


    What other book might you compare To Wed a Wicked Earl to and why?

    It was fun, loving without too much sex and the story was easy to follow like Jennifer Cruise book Bet Me.


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

    The narrator was good. She wasn't boring and her voice fluctuated at the right moments. While I do use books to go to sleep it's the good narrators that allow that and plus when it's a good narrator I go back to the last thing I remembered while if the narrators voice was irritating and boring I immediately skip to the last chapter and hope that I can return the book.


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

    I wouldn't say it moved me but one of my favorite parts was their reaction to their first kiss.


    Any additional comments?

    I really like this historical romance book. The story was good even if predictable, it was sexy but not sleazy and the story line was seamless. The characters are well done by the narrator and makes you wish for a sequel. Even if there are no sequels this book was good enough to make me look at reading or listening to the author more often.

    Story

    The only reason I didn't return this book was because the narrator was really good. I didn't listen to the books in order and by listening to past books they led me to believe that Nina was a strong woman. She had strong moments...well...actually kind of stupid moments, that someone less aggressive may think of as strong. I found the Alpha character to be irritating to say the least and hard to like most of the time. If you were stranded in a small town knowing people are kind of crazy now a days would you really allow complete strangers control???? Really??? Out of all the books this was my least favorite. I would recommend...Breathe, Lady Luck, and Sweet Dreams. Which all portrayed Nina as being strong...she's a lawyer so you would think so but she was only strong w/business. When it came to protecting her friends but when it came to her she rarely had a backbone in my opinion but then again I'm a more dominate female so well.

    Sweet, shy Mara Hanover is in love with her neighbor. For four years, she has secretly watched her dream man from afar. Handsome police detective Mitch Lawson is way out of her league. She's a girl from the wrong side of the tracks, and there's no way a guy like Mitch would want anything to do with her. But when Mara has a leaky faucet that she can't fix, it's Mitch who comes to her rescue.

    Story

    The story was good but the narrator did a poor job w/the male voices. At times I wasn't sure if she was even trying to do a male character or simply reading. The story was good not great but good. It got better as the time went on. The first couple of hours I really was thinking about asking for my credit back. But after I got past my irritation w/the narrator I started to enjoy the story. I will say at the end she did finally get a little better with the male characters and she did the children characters perfectly. If narrators make or break a book for you then I don't believe I would recommend this book. Her voice isn't irritating just doesn't seem like she put any real effort in the lead male character. However if you can imagine it's your mom reading a bedtime story then this is a nice story.

    Until Batman strode into Madame Minerva's dungeon, Daisy Ellis thought she had everything she wanted. Duran Price isn't really the Dark Knight, but both the mild mannered CPA and the dominatrix who keeps her true identity hidden behind a Catwoman mask desires more than his submission. Fitting a relationship into a double life is a full-time job and with a super villainess riding shotgun, the power is up for grabs.

    When I think of dominatrix I think of a much stronger character in a female. The main female character lived a dual life which was fine regarding careers but personality I would have preferred her to be dominating in both. When you read dominating books w/males dominating they rule in their professional and love life. If you are looking for that I would not recommend this book. If you are looking for a love story w/a little bit of kink this may satisfy you.

    Young interior designer Ava O'Shea has no idea what awaits her at the Manor. A run-of-the-mill consultation with a stodgy country gent seems likely, but what Ava finds instead is Jesse Ward - a devastatingly handsome, utterly confident, pleasure-seeking playboy who knows no boundaries. Ava doesn't want to be attracted to this man, and yet she can't control the overwhelming desire that he stirs in her. She knows that her heart will never survive him and her instinct is telling her to run, but Jesse is not willing to let her go. He wants her and is determined to have her.

    It was manipulative, passionate, dominating and romantic in a twisted way. If you liked fifty shades of grey well this book will give you your credit worth. In some ways I loved the heroine and other ways she worked my nerves because she didn't seem strong enough but she was not stupid. I wouldn't want her best friend because sometimes you really will wonder who side is she on. Then the our leading male character is just that a character. He is someone that in the states that you would really consider putting a restraining order on but he's such a great lay that you'll be like "nevermind"...lol. I bought both books and hope that there will be another.

    Millicent understands the terms of her arranged marriage all too well. She gets to be a Countess by marrying an impoverished Earl. And in return, the Earl Fitzhugh receives the benefit of her vast wealth, saving his family from bankruptcy. Because of her youth, they have agreed to wait eight years before consummating the marriage--and then, only to beget an heir. After which, they will lead separate lives. It is a most sensible arrangement. Except for one little thing.

    Even though you may read the reviews and they say this is an abridged work and some of the work is missing, it is a good book. If you haven't read the book, you may not know the difference. I did wish that the main female character would have had someone else trying to court her but this version makes it appear as though she had blind devotion. The male character her love interest frustrated me a lot. He was trying to make too many people happy. This story switches between past to present almost every chapter so if you don't like time jumping this is not the story for you. Overall it does what a story is suppose to do, makes you smile and sometimes frustrates you.

But the passion burning between them could push them both over the edge of sanity in the third installment in Singh's breathtaking Psy-Changeling series.

    What did you love best about Caressed by Ice?

    I love the strength of the heroine and the hero. They are indeed well matched.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I am a big fan of Judd. He knows he is strong but doesn't try to assert himself and tries to just stay in the shadows. Yet do not test him because he will deal with you swiftly if he chooses.


    Which character – as performed by Angela Dawe – was your favorite?

    She did all the characters very well. You will be able to distinguish each character which is appreciated.


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

    Yes, and I've listened to it several times.


    Any additional comments?

    Judd is a strong character, he is anti-social but you will love this man because at least you know when he does talk he actually makes sense. Breanna is a strong young lady who is a survivor but knows that she needs someone to lean on and she doesn't waste any time making that clear. You'll see characters from previously stories if you've listened to the first couple of books. As previously recommended try to listen to them in order. I believe you will be pleasantly surprised.

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

    She just does the character voices sooooo well.


    Any additional comments?

    This is my favorite book in the series. I have listened to it at least 7 times. I love the way things just kept building up and how they didn't just fall right into each other. The hero was having a hard time of letting go in his mind but his heart knew what was really right for him and the heroine who is really strong knew how to push buttons and keep it moving without seeming like she was desperate for him.

    Hailed as a major talent in paranormal romance, Nalini Singh takes us deeper into the world of the Psy and the changelings in her latest extraordinary novel, where a gifted woman sees passion in her future---a passion that is absolutely forbidden by her kind. In danger from the Psy, Faith NightStar's fragile sanity will be tested by an all-consuming passion for a changeling who can take the form of man or jaguar.

    Genevieve McInnis is locked behind the fortified walls of McHugh Keep, captive of a cruel laird who takes great pleasure in ruining her for any other man. Yet when Bowen Montgomery storms the gates on a mission of clan warfare, Genevieve finds that her spirit is bent but not broken. Still, her path toward freedom remains uncertain. Unable to bear the shame of returning to a family that believes her dead or to abandon others at the keep to an imposing new laird, Genevieve opts for the peaceful life of an abbess. But Bowen's rugged sensuality stirs something deep inside her that longs to be awakened by his patient, gentle caress - something warm, wicked, and tempting.

    Where does Highlander Most Wanted rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book is in my top 10 and it's only the second of the series and the first is also in the top 10 so that should say a lot.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Highlander Most Wanted?

    Find out the details of Genevieve and the torture she went through and what she did to get her freedom. It was in best terms messed up but it was a necessary evil. After you listen I'm sure you would think to yourself, "heck yeah, I would have done that too"....


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

    I listened to her in the first book, "Never Seduce a Scot" and I loved her in that book as well which is another reason why it made getting this book such a great decision. I wish I would have known about this book prior to spending a credit on a book recommend by the concierge.


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

    I just loved that everything was so feasible. Nothing was too far fetched and seemed to be very realistic. Kirsten brought all the characters to life.


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend this book and while I believe it would be best to listen to them in order this book could stand alone because it does answer any backdrop questions you may have while listening. You will go through a roller coaster of emotions...well at least I did. I laughed, got angry at some of the bad treatment of the heroine, and again as w/the other book got a little teary eyed.

Coming back from a thoroughly ruinous sales trip to Glasgow, the plane she is on encounters some air turbulence, and she ends up spilling her guts to the handsome American sitting next to her. He gets to hear that she fibbed to get her current job and that she has never been able to satisfactorily find her G-spot. Then, the plane lands...and the American turns up in her life again. He's the CEO of her company....

    Would you try another book from Sophie Kinsella and/or Kate Reading?

    I would listen to another book read by Kate Reading but am unsure if I would buy another Sophie Kinsella book.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    The ending did nothing for me. If anything I would have asked for a better ending.


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

    I am unsure if Kate is British but if not she did the accents well. I like that the men also sounded like men and not a woman trying to sound like a man.


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

    If this book was a movie then I would be disappointed that someone decided to make another version of Bridget Jones Diary.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall this book was okay. If I would have never seen Bridget Jones Diary maybe I would have liked it more. But seeing how that wasn't the case I was not impressed. This will not be one that I would listen to over and over again. The main guy in this story didn't have enough character build up or background. The girl as someone else said did a lot of self talk as it was in...guess what...Bridget Jones Diary. If you want something w/a "brand new" storyline then I would not recommend this book. However if you don't mind a different version of an already good story this book will make you smile, some of you may even laugh.
