    Governess Abigail Chantry will do anything to save her sister and two dearest friends from destitution, even if it means breaking into an empty mansion in the hope of finding something to sell. Instead of treasures, though, she finds the owner, Lady Beatrice Davenham, bedridden and neglected. Appalled, Abby rousts Lady Beatrice's predatory servants and-with Lady Beatrice's eager cooperation-the four young ladies become her "nieces," neatly eliminating the threat of disaster for all concerned!

    If you are looking for a historical romance that will keep you on the edge of your seat looking for villains at every turn and pegs your anxiety level on high, this isn’t the right book.
    But!
    If you are looking for a historical romance that will help chase away the stress of real life for a while, this is the right book.
    It is so enjoyably light hearted; I didn’t even try to guess who the villain was.
    Yes, The Autumn Bride will be read again and again over time.
    Looking forward to the next book in the series and hope Alison Larkin will narrate, after all she is a large part of the book's success.

    Sparks fly when a hardboiled reporter meets a handsome senator. But a political scandal - and attempts on her life - could drive them apart. Or maybe adversity could draw them into a bond even more intense than their steamy sexual embraces.

    This series is one of the few that gets better with each book. I’m very glad Pamele Clare stayed with Kaleo Griffith throughout, he brought the stories to life.

    Laird Taveon Kraig would do anything to recover a magical amulet powerful enough to break the curse that has plagued his clan for a hundred years - even marry a woman determined to hate him. But the beautiful - albeit boldly defiant - woman stirs his passion like no other. He never dreamed his quest would involve surrendering his heart. Having survived two ruthless marriages, Viviana Gorini Dè Medici has no desire to take another husband - especially one who wants her most prized possession: a magical amulet that provides her with the gift of sight.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    NO. Whats to recommend? There is too much wrong with the recording to get a good story.


    What other book might you compare My Cursed Highlander to and why?

    NO, I'm glade to say, not in my library


    Would you be willing to try another one of The Killion Group’s performances?

    NO


    Was My Cursed Highlander worth the listening time?

    NO


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator's voice and style makes you feel as if she is reading an erotic love story to a 3 year old child. VERY CREEPY during the explicit sexual content.
    The story itself was really quite good, but not a smooth or easy read. It began with what seemed like 5 minutes of legal mumble-jumble, not the usual short, unobtrusive copyright here to’s and where as’s. This title should come with a warning: ‘May need an attorney to buy and own this book’.
    I pushed through all 13+ hours but it was not easy. The Killion Group (publisher) may want to find an experienced editor/publisher; there were a few places the pauses were so long I checked to see if my iPod's battery had died.
    Kimberly Killion should stick to the writing, (she is very good) and leave the publishing (she is not very good) to the pros. I will pass on this author/publisher/editor/narrator/lawyer/indian chief in the future.
    I was told long ago to stay away from authors who narrate their own books, I should have done just that and add to it authors who publish their own work, too.

    Great read if read a tad slower. Ms. James narrated this as if she had something more important to do. I had to keep backing up to catch up.

    The story was well fleshed out, as were the characters.

    Lenore Lester was perfectly content with her quiet country life, caring for her father, and having no desire for marriage. She took steps to remain inconspicuous and tried her best to show indifference--but to no avail! The irresistible Duke of Eversleigh had found her out and was quite persistent in his affections....

    Helen, slow down! It's work following you through this book. Love all SL's books but this one was stop and go. You need to keep backing up to catch up, it's read so fast. The story is a keeper, not the narrator's style.

    Personal vendettas, hidden treasure, and a monkey named Carl will send bounty hunter Stephanie Plum on her most explosive adventure yet. Dom Rizzi robbed a bank, stashed the money, and did the time. His family couldn't be more proud. He always was the smart one. Joe Morelli, Dom Rizzi, and Dom's sister, Loretta, are cousins. Morelli is a cop, Rizzi robs banks, and Loretta is a single mother waiting tables at the firehouse. The all-American family.

    I've "read" One through Fourteen and the between the numbers books, all were so entertaining and fun I've read them all multiple times!
    Can't wait 'til Fifteen or a new between the numbers book becomes available.
