    Story

    Beast is a different spin on the age old fairy tale, Beauty and the Beast. Even though you know the hero and heroine will find their way together by the end of the story, you want to continue to listen to how they finally get there. Barbara Rosenblat is a genius at creating a unique voice for each of the characters. If you like romance, I recommend this book.

    Nothing incites Marcus more than the primal hunger roused by his former fiancée, Elizabeth. It’s been years since she jilted him for another man, but that only means there’s a lot to catch up on, a lot to make up for, and that he’s going to enjoy every sweet moment.… The same drive and passion that sent her into another man’s arms is what brings Elizabeth back to Marcus. Her attraction to him is the one thing she fears, but she’s run out of options. Resisting is impossible. But does she have the courage to surrender everything?

    Story

    I found little to recommend Ask For It. The story line was thin, the characters' actions unbelievable, and the content too sexually graphic for my taste.

    If you want to read a Fifty Shades of Grey wanna-be series, then you will probably enjoy this one by Sylvia Day much better than I did.

    Ryder is the hardest Montgomery brother to figure out - with a tough-as-nails outside and possibly nothing too soft underneath. He’s surly and unsociable, but when he straps on a tool belt, no woman can resist his sexy swagger. Except, apparently, Hope Beaumont, the innkeeper of his own Inn BoonsBoro.... As the former manager of a D.C. hotel, Hope is used to excitement and glamour, but that doesn’t mean she can’t appreciate the joys of small-town living. She’s where she wants to be - except for in her love life....

    Story

    I haven't read a Nora Roberts trilogy in at least 5 years, but the Inn BoonsBoro Trilogy reminded me why I like her writing so much. I would recommend all three books in the trilogy. The characters are well developed and the relationships that are formed are deep and abiding. I especially like the auxillary characters and the sense of family in these books. All three are very entertaining.

    Courtney Milan writes with depth and sensuality. The storyline draws you in and the characters are developed with interesting layers of vulernability. Add to that the rich and expressive voice of Rebecca De Leeuw and you've got a winner! I purchased the othe two books in the series and am enjoying those just as much as Unveiled.

    Iain Sinclair, Marquis of Alynwick, is certain there is a special hell for him. An unrepentant rake, he holds nothing sacred - except for beautiful Elizabeth York. For years, Alynwick has tried to forget the woman he loved so well, and treated so badly. A woman who could hold nothing in her heart for him but hatred. All of society believes Elizabeth, the blind daughter of a duke, to be a proper young lady. But no one knows of her wanton affair with Alynwick.

    Story

    I really enjoyed Pride and Passion. There was intrigue, mystery, romance and passion, and I really wanted the two central characters to find their happily ever after. However, the hero in Temptation and Twilight is a bit too debauched for my liking and doesn't appear to have a good reason to have become so disdainful. On the other hand, the heroine is charming, intelligent and resourceful. All in all, Temptation and Twilight was a disappointing sequel to Pride and Passion.

    Lucy Ashton had long ago given up her quest for true love. In the rarified society of Victorian England, Lucy plays the game—flirting, dancing and dabbling in the newly fashionable spiritualism. Even marrying when—and who—she’s supposed to. If the stuffy Duke of Sussex cannot spark the passion she craves, he can at least give her a family, a home of her own, and a place to belong. But when her polite marriage reveals a caring and sensual man, Lucy begins to wonder if she can indeed have it all.

    Story

    Ms. Feathestone has delivered a book of equal parts mystery and passion. In particular, the love scenes are vivid and enticing. The narrator, Rebecca de Leeuw, is absolutely perfect with subtle but effective changes in her voice to denote the different characters. However, the ending is truly a "cliff hanger" and I don't believe there is a sequel. Absolutely wonderful until the end.
