    Miss Linnet Berry Thrynne is a Beauty... Naturally, she's betrothed to a Beast. Piers Yelverton, Earl of Marchant, lives in a castle in Wales where, it is rumored, his bad temper flays everyone he crosses. And rumor also has it that a wound has left the earl immune to the charms of any woman. Linnet is not just any woman. She is more than merely lovely: her wit and charm brought a prince to his knees. She estimates the earl will fall madly in love - in just two weeks. She is more than merely lovely: her wit and charm brought a prince to his knees.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The House that Love Built the most enjoyable?

    I liked that they eased into their relationship, two people with issues but they also saw that they were two people that needed each other. I liked that they focused on their friendship first.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The House that Love Built?

    When Brooke's son tells Owen that she has issues and wanders the neighborhood lost because she can't find her way home. Then tells him she has red spots with "stuff" leaking out. Followed real quickly with Owen trying to help her find her way home.


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

    I did. I sat in my driveway for two and a half hours just to finish it.


    Any additional comments?

    It just made me happy. They dealt with their issues and weren't overly stupid about their emotions in the process.

    Story

    The story was funny and enjoyable. The reader did a good job, just not for a romance. He sounded very elderly and more fitting for Old Man and the Sea than for this story. I was sort of able to ignore it, but at times that was all I could think of. Maybe a better read than a listen if you can't get over the narrator.

    They call him the Devil Earl - a scoundrel and accused murderer who grew up on the violent London streets. A proper young lady risks more than her reputation when consorting with the roguishly handsome Lucian Langdon, but Lady Catherine Mabry believes she has no choice. To protect those she loves, she would do anything-even strike a bargain with the devil himself. Lucian desires respectability and a wife above all else, but the woman of his choosing lacks the social graces to be accepted by the aristocracy.

    Story

    This was a book I had been eying for a while. The description interested me enough to keep looking at it but not enough to purchase. I finally made the order when the book went on sale. Again it sat in my library for a couple of months before I downloaded it when I knew I had no other option for a book to listen to. I can't say enough how glad I am to have listened to it! There was some amazing chemistry between the two main characters as well as an interesting story. I read and listen to so many books that it feels like there aren't too many characters and stories that really pull me in but wow, this one really did. I can't wait to get the rest of the series.

    What if... Lizzy, as she gets to know Darcy, finds him undeniably attractive and her impulses win out over her sense of propriety? What if...

And little by little, Elizabeth begins to find the man she thought she despised, irresistible....

    Story

    A more fitting title for this book would be Conquering Elizabeth Bennet. I love just about anything to do with Pride and Prejudice and especially Mr. Darcy. I did enjoy this book, Mr. Darcy, not so much. I realize that while this is a what if story, I kept thinking no way would Mr. Darcy to this or act like that. I truly think I would have enjoyed this story much more if it hadn't been based on P & P and in fact started to pretend that there really wasn't any connection to the book and enjoyed ot much more. My lasting thought was while absolutely adoring Mr. Darcy, I love him much more as the man of mystery and hero that he is in my mind than someone elses characterization of him.

    Eldest brother Marcus Armstrong considers the estrogen influx an irritating distraction. He's running a town, not a dating service! Reporter Alicia Randall thinks the Armstrong brothers are running a scam and she intends to prove it-even if it means seducing oh-so-sexy Marcus in the process. Sizzling sex and a hot story? Win-win! At least it is, until she falls for the guy. Will love trump betrayal when the truth comes out?

    Story

    This was book 3 in the series, Baby, Drive South and Baby, Come Home are the first two. This was a light, entertaining read. The town of Sweetness is still trying to rebuild after the tornado that hit ten years earlier. This is the oldest Armstrong brother, Marcus's story. He is the leader of the brothers and is the one working the hardest to get things done before their deadline. Alicia is a reporter from a feminist magazine in the town undercover trying to discover evidence of some sort of a scam or worse, women being taken advantage of. Alicia's character was pretty annoying at times but was pretty tolerable at the end once she realized that nothing other than a lot of people trying to rebuild their lives in one manner or another was going on.

    According to USA Today, best-selling author Lisa Wingate “dishes up fun and charm” with her touching romance novels. In Texas Cooking, Wingate tells the story of Colleen Collins, a big city reporter who thinks she’s seen and heard it all until she visits the tiny town of San Saline. Listeners from all walks of life will relish this tale of passion, new beginnings, and the comfortsof good food and good conversation.

    The three bad-boy bachelors of Snowdon, Maine, have to make it to a friend's Christmas Eve wedding on time - or die trying! They're willing to risk anything to make that happen - even dashing through the snow in the goofiest bus on Earth, bright red and filled with a bunch of merry, meddling senior citizens known as the Santa Brigade. All too soon, these men will have met their matches in three special women....

    Story

    The story itself wasn't too bad, if you can get over the reader it is enjoyable. The male voices were very feminine and I don't know what other combo for their voices and some of the worst accents I have heard in a long time. I decided that this was probably something that was recorded ten years ago which really would explain the voices, audio books have improved a ton during that time period. I think if you can't get past her voice, read the hard copy instead.

    Casey Lord needs a break. Her great-on-paper boyfriend, Reed, is pressuring her to marry him but she’s not sure if he sees her merely as an asset to help his political career. A river-rafting trip in the remote wilderness provides the perfect opportunity to clear her head... until a flash flood sweeps Casey away from her group—and straight into the arms of Jack, a mysterious man also stranded by the flooding river.

    Story

    I loved the first part of the book, the "river time" between Jack and Casey. In fact I really liked Jack throughout the entire book, it was Casey I was disappointed with. Admitedly I really just have a problem with wishy washy characters in general. She figures out she doesn't want to marry her boyfriend and falls in love with Jack while on the river yet immediately marries the jerk of a boyfriend when she realizes who Jack is when she gets home. She doesn't love the man and lets him manipulate her. When she does figure things out and decides she really wants Jack she is manipulated again and changes her mind again to protect her mom over something that really Jack could have taken care of as well if it came to that. I just wanted to tell her come on already. That aside, I really did enjoy this book and would read this author again.
