    Daughter of a cold, controlling mother and an anonymous donor, studious, obedient Elizabeth finally let loose one night, drinking too much at a nightclub and allowing a strange man’s seductive Russian accent to lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive. The events that followed changed her life forever. Twelve years later, the woman now known as Abigail Lowery lives alone on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance programmer, she works at home designing sophisticated security systems.

    I really enjoyed this story...and I've read or listened to at least 95% of Nora Roberts/JD Robb's books. I especially enjoyed the narrator's different characters...she truly captured the nuances of the region.

    First in a sizzling new series from Jennifer Probst, the USA Today best-selling author adored for her "fresh, fun, and sexy" (Romancing the Book) storytelling! In charming Verily, New York, Kate Seymour has a smashing success with Kinnections, the matchmaking service she owns with her two best girlfriends. But Kate's more than a savvy businesswoman: She's gifted with a secret power, a jolting touch that signals when love's magic is at work.

    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Searching for Someday?

    It wasn't the scenes, so much as the overall arrogance and negativity of the "hero"...it went on for way to long into the book, with no hint it was going to change.


    Any additional comments?

    I really tried to like this book, but the "hero" was so unlikable, I finally threw in the towel and removed it from my android. I didn't even skip ahead to see how it ended!

    With indifferent parents, Iona Sheehan grew up craving devotion and acceptance. From her maternal grandmother, she learned where to find both: a land of lush forests, dazzling lakes, and centuries-old legends. Ireland. County Mayo, to be exact. Where her ancestors’ blood and magic have flowed through generations - and where her destiny awaits.

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

    I had to be in the car anyway...


    Would you be willing to try another book from Nora Roberts? Why or why not?

    I have enjoyed several of the series narrators, especially The Bride Quartet stories, JD Robb stories, and the Boonsboro trilogy. So, yes I will try other books, but I will probably steer clear of this predictable, poorly narrated series.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I really enjoyed her narration of the main character, but all of the other women sounded like they were 70 years old. I cannot imagine them as the main love interest in any other stories.

    Story
    What was one of the most memorable moments of Born in Fire?

    I really enjoyed the interplay between the characters. The interaction between Maggie, her sister, and the mother was very well done.


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

    The narration was very well done. I will seek out the narrator again in the future.


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

    I drove extra miles at the end just so I could hear the ending!


    Any additional comments?

    Thoroughly enjoyable. I purchased the other two books in the series after I listened to this one.

    Qhuinn, son of no one, is used to being on his own. Disavowed from his bloodline, shunned by the aristocracy, he has finally found an identity as one of the most brutal fighters in the war against the Lessening Society. But his life is not complete. Even as the prospect of having a family of his own seems to be within reach, he is empty on the inside, his heart given to another....

    Story

    I have read or listened to the entire series, up through this book, and this may be the last. I wasn't turned off by the M/M love story, but I actually started skipping chapters after chapter 8...finally, I skipped ahead to @ chapter 85 and Blay and Quinn were STILL lamenting lost opportunities? Are you serious? After the original Brothers, this series has become increasingly boring. I don't even really like the heroes anymore. Too bad. Think I'll stick with the first 5 books.
