    Stephanie Laurens entices readers anew with each of her delectable Regency era novels, and this New York Times best-seller showcases Laurens at her captivating best. Charles Morwellan - eighth Earl of Meredith - knows he must marry, but he plans to do so on his own terms. So, after years of escaping the clutches of would-be wives, it is quite a shock when he is refused by the beautiful Sarah Conningham.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This story line is good, the narration is horrifying. He pauses in places without commas which emphasizes words that were not intended to get the emphasis.

    The story felt disjointed, it was hard to listen to as a result of the narration. I have tried listening at several speeds, but the narration grated on me. The story was ruined for me and I have put his name on the list of never listen to him again!

    A good story, ruined for me by the narrator.


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

    The narrator!


    Would you be willing to try another one of Simon Prebble’s performances?

    Never again. I couldn't finish listening to this one.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    No film.

    In each woman there is a secret question, one she doesn't always dare ask: "Is there something more? Is there something I don't know? Is there a higher sexual pleasure, something deeper than the one I've experienced? Many women wondered, Do my past traumas, or my partner's failure to fully understand my body prevent me from experiencing my true sexuality?Most sexually active women have asked themselves these questions at some point in their lives. Perhaps they haven't used these exact words, but the essence of their questions remains the same: Is there more?

    Story

    Jean-Claude Carvill has written an amazing story about a tantra massage therapist. I never realized there was such a thing as tantra massage. I have heard of tantric sex, but never explored it in the past. This book has opened a new doorway into sexual experiences that intrigue me.

    Jewel Greenberg narrates the story with a slightly husky voice that does the story justice. Her reading skill is superb and kept me focused on what she was saying.

    Overall, the story is a very good one. Female ejaculation is something that has interested me from the first moment I realized I could do it. This book discusses it in depth in a way that is as educational as it is highly and explicitly erotic. (Of course it is explicit, that is apparent from the title and the description.)

    I enjoyed this Audible from the beginning, and will be purchasing other books by Jean-Claude Carvill.

    Part-time environmentalist and philanthropist Ben and his ex-mercenary buddy Chon run an independent Laguna Beach–based marijuana operation, reaping significant profits from an established clientele. But they may have come up against something that they can't handle---the Mexican Baja Cartel wants in, and saying no is unacceptable. When they refuse to back down, the cartel kidnaps Ophelia, the boys' playmate and confidante.

    Story

    I say that headline in a good way. It is a rough cut story, brutal and not pretty. The title sums it up. Savages.

    Take a nice quiet little town like Laguna Beach, add a pair of drug dealers who grow their own strains of premium weed, toss in a sex nympho who shares the two dealers, and a Mexican drug cartel led by a very strong character woman... You get Savages.

    This story is not for those folks offended by straight talk, by blunt talk, by raunchy sex, murder or people who are getting high. It is not for people who cannot handle trash talk against John Wayne, Republicans, Democrats, the government in general.

    Michael Kramer reads this story as if it were written just for him to read. His rich deep voice gives the characters life.

    Story

    What happened? Almost everyone has vanished, but to where? How? Most importantly, why?

    The different narrators keep the story fresh, alive and in your mind. This book sample had me scrambling to purchase the full Season 1. I am chomping at the bit to get to the next Season.

    I am a woman who hated "Lost". I thought it was the stupidest premise ever and after the first show, I refused to watch more of it. It didn't grab me, the characters were not believable or likeable as far as I was concerned. Yesterday's Gone should have struck me the same way but it grabbed me with it's unique storyline.

    Having several narrators was the best decision the Author/Publisher could have made, it makes this story really come alive.

    Eff was born a thirteenth child. Her twin brother, Lan, is the seventh son of a seventh son. This means he's supposed to possess amazing talent - and she's supposed to bring only bad things to her family and her town. Undeterred, her family moves to the frontier, where her father will be a professor of magic at a school perilously close to the magical divide that separates settlers from the beasts of the wild. With wit and wonder, Patricia Wrede creates an alternate history of westward expansion that will delight fans of both J. K. Rowling and Laura Ingalls Wilder.

    Story

    There is a superstition in being the 13th anything so imagine for a moment that you are the 13th in a group of children. You would be pre-judged, already behind the eight ball from the very beginning.

    Add a magical world to this, add people moving to untamed areas to settle in a world full of magic. Imagine adding another faction, a group of people who refuse to live using magic. How would you survive here? What is it like to be a pioneer in the West as a magical or a non-magical person? What would school be like?

    You are about to embark on a journey that will delight young teens, old teens and adults alike. From the first chapter of this book, I was pulled in and held tight by the story read by Amanda Ronconi.

    Pull up a chair, stop what you are doing and listen. I promise you aren't going to want to stop until the story stops and the last words of the book thanking your for your Audible purchase play in your ears.

    Eff is riding west, away from the safety of the frontier city she's always known.... Eff could be a powerful magician if she wanted to. Except she's not sure she wants that kind of responsibility. Everyone keeps waiting for her to do something amazing - or to fail in a spectacular way. Worse, her twin brother, Lan, a powerful double seventh son, is jealous of all the attention she's been getting. Even as Eff protests that she's just an ordinary girl, she's asked to travel past the Barrier Spell with one of the new professors at her father's school. The land west of the Barrier is full of dangers, both magical and wild. Eff will need to use all her strength - magical and otherwise - to come safely back home.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Across the Great Barrier the most enjoyable?

    Amanda Ronconi has the greatest voice. She reads at the perfect tempo, never sounds bored. She has a broad range of voices for different characters. I love listening to her. I never have to speed up or slow down the program to compensate for poor meter as I do in some other stories.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Eff is the main character but I like Wash and Prof. Torgensen the best. They are both main characters who add spice to the story. Both are helping to shape Eff far more than her parents are.


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

    It is just as great as the other ones. It might even be a bit better. She has to make a far greater range of accents in this one than in some of her other stories.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Here there be Dragons.


    Any additional comments?

    This story reminds me of the old maps where there is "Here there be Dragons" written in spots no one has explored in the past. In this story, there really are dragons, and a wide range of other magical beasts that cause problems for new settlers.

    There is vibrancy in this story that makes it really come to life, I imagine this story will become a cult type of book much like some of the other books have over the years. It is right up there with the Harry Potter series, the Nancy Drew books, the Little House books. Yes, it really is "that good". My only complaint is that I wish the books were longer and I wish there were more of them.

    If you could sum up Yesterday's Gone: Season One in three words, what would they be?

    Wow. Just Wow.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Yesterday's Gone: Season One?

    The entire book is memorable.


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

    The voices, the power behind the words, the expression. I listened to a free sample of this book and was hooked.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Why was I left behind?


    Any additional comments?

    I am looking forward to more. Lots more. This type of book normally isn't my genre, but it reached out and dragged me in involuntarily as if I were one of those left behind. I had no choice except to buy the season, I wouldn't rest until I continued listening.

    It began as just another evening of fantasy gaming with James, Karl, Andrea, and the rest ready to assume their various roles as wizard, cleric, warrior, or thief. But sorcerous gamemaster Professor Deighton had something else planned for this unsuspecting group of college students. And the "game" soon became a matter of life and death as the seven adventurers found themselves transported to an alternate world and into the bodies of the actual characters they had been pretending to be....

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Sleeping Dragon to be better than the print version?

    Yes! I loved the print version, but the narration was charmingly done.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The vibrancy of the descriptions made me feel as if I were there. The story grabbed my attention and did nog let go until it was done.


    What about Keith Silverstein’s performance did you like?

    His ability to honestly bring the characters to life.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I sat on the edge listening as the scene unfolded. My heart broke for the girls after the rape.


    Any additional comments?

    I am looking forward to the next books in the series.
