    Britain’s high society—le bon ton—loves nothing more than a good scandal, and they’re giddy with the appearance of wealthy Samuel Hartley. Not only is he self-made, American, and in the habit of wearing moccasins, but he is also notorious for fleeing a battle in which several English gentlemen lost their lives. Lady Emeline Gordon is captivated by Samuel. Not only does he defy convention with his unusual dress, his sensual smile, and his forthright manner, but he survived the battle that killed her beloved brother.

    Cathie says: "Loved It"
    "Two stories in one! Great treat."
    Overall

    The Legend of the Four Soldiers and the personallity of the main male character is great and what is even nicer is they both end. First book I've listened/read by this author and was not disappointed the story was great the male lead excellant but the Lady was a bit annoying. I totally enjoy listening to Anne Flosnik which is why I purchased this audio book. Can't wait to listen/read the next installment.

    In the resplendence of William the Conqueror's London court, the lovely Saxon captive, Nicholaa was forced to choose a husband from the assembled Norman nobles. She chose Royce, a baron warrior whose fierce demeanor could not conceal his chivalrous and tender heart. Resourceful, rebellious and utterly naive, Nicholaa vowed to bend Royce to her will, despite the whirlwind of feelings he aroused in her.

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

    Yes for I can listen while I'm on a bumpy bus ride, walking anywhere I'm going and of course while eating on my break.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Prize?

    When Royce helps Nicolaa deal with Orich leaving. And the help he gives her brother Justin.


    Have you listened to any of Anne Flosnik???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to many books by this narrator and she never disappoints. I love how she captures the personality of the characters and brings them to life.


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

    I was sorry it need so soon. And I did laugh and cry. This is only the 3rd book by Julie Garwood I have listened to, however, I love them all. She pulls you into her books and I love when and author does this and then the narrator gives you that experience while reading the book to you. This audio book has it all.


    Any additional comments?

    Sample the audio. You will not be disappointed.

But will all their matchmaking efforts help to make Halle’s Christmas wish come true?

    If you could sum up Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor in three words, what would they be?

    A magical place.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Maggie was my favorite. Her relationship with her father was a great one. She wasn't selfish or afraid to reach out to a child and give her a little magic to help work through her grief. And it was amusing to watch her and Mark try to fight there attraction to one another.


    What does Tanya Eby bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    I enjoyed the story more for the way she brought all the characters to life for me. I disagree with an earlier reviewer who doesn't like the narrator. Thank you Tanya I enjoy listening to you and have other books you have narrated.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes when Holly spoke for the first time to Mark and Sam since her mother's death.


    Any additional comments?

    This may help you decide to purchase the book I hope so for Lisa Kleypas dosen't disappoInt. This is a great start to what appears to be another wonderful series by Lisa. I can't wait to listen to Sam's story. Thanks to Lisa I have tried contemporary books for I only read her historicals, etc.

    A summer at his grandparents' South Dakota ranch is not 11-year-old Cooper Sullivan's idea of a good time. But things are a bit more bearable now that he's discovered the neighbor girl, Lil Chance, and her homemade batting cage. Even horseback riding isn't as awful as Coop thought it would be. Each year, with Coop's annual summer visit, their friendship deepens from innocent games to stolen kisses, but there is one shared experience that will forever haunt them: the terrifying discovery of a hiker's body.

    Captain Christopher Phelan has been corresponding with the beautiful golden-haired Prudence Mercer while he was away fighting in the Crimean War. What he doesn't know, however, is that the woman who wrote to him is actually Prudence's best friend, Beatrix Hathaway.
    Upon his return home to Hampshire, it becomes clear that Christopher's experiences in war have changed him.

    Helen says: "It's Beatrix's turn!"
    "Wonderful!!!"

    I was so happy that Beatrix met someone who appreciated her for the way she is. Totally enjoyed this series and again sorry that it came to an end. Lisa Kleypas is great and with her books being narrated by Rosalyn Landor how can you lose.

    Where beautiful but bold Lillian Bowman quickly learned that her independent American ways weren’t entirely “the thing.” And the most disapproving of all was insufferable, snobbish, and impossible Marcus, Lord Westcliff, London’s most eligible aristocrat.

    Caroline says: "Did not like main female charactor's voice"

    Lillian and Marus who would've thought. Another good story and loved that Simon, Annabel, Evie and St. Vincent were also a part of this. Gotta love the Wallflowers. Rosalyn Landor does the story proud.

    Beatrice Corning, the niece of the present earl, is a proper English miss. But she has a secret: no real man has ever excited her more than the handsome youth in the portrait in her uncle’s home. Suddenly, that very man, thought to be murdered years ago, is here in the flesh. Half mad after seven years in hellish captivity, Reynaud St. Aubyn has burst into his ancestral home demanding his inheritance. Can this wild-looking man truly be the last earl’s heir?

    Joanne says: "OK Story - Narration Terrible"
    "To Desire a Devil. Don't we all at times!"
    Overall

    I totally loved the end of this series and unlike some was not disappointed. For someone who was held a prisoner for so long and for woman handling her own and almost on the self these two people would know what they want. Not surprised that they were attracted to each other. She fellow in love with the young man in the portait. So when the men appears its hard to separate. I like the narrator it was one of the reasons I started this series in the first place for I own other audio books narrated by her. To each his own try the sample you won't be disappointed with the ending. I was just sorry the series ended.

    Madeline de Lacy, the duchess of Magnus, prides herself on being one of the most sensible young women in England, which is why she can’t believe that, in a turn of the cards, her noble father has lost his entire estate – and her! – to a stranger.

    Overall

    This is the first of two books. I've read this and Justine Eyre made it a wonderful experience to listen to.
    I loved the two cousins and how they looked out for each other. Even switching places with one another. Christine Dodd is one of the authors I've enjoyed reading over the years and was delighted when I saw that this Series was offered for audio. It is a wonderful book and the characters are great fun and an old mystery is being investigated and interesting things start happening and is concluded in the next book.
    Which is just as good as this one.

    Eleanor de Lacy must have been mad to agree to exchange identities with her stronger-willed cousin. She would never convince Remington Knight of the folly of this union – especially since the man seemed so determined for it to take place. Worse still, she finds Remington dazzling attractive – and she’s charmed by his attempts to seduce her, even though he believes she is already his. But if he ever learns of Eleanor’s deception, this daring rogue will wreak havoc…upon her reputation and her heart.

    Overall

    This is a great story about two cousins who Iook enough alike they could be twins. They've switched places and this is the second of the two book series. I read this book before, in fact I've read almost everything by this author. The narrator Justine Eyre is great she is up there with Rosalyn Landor who is totally my favorite. I loved the way she brought the characters to life and the story seem like you are there. I was sorry when it ended when I read it and had the same experience when I listened to it.
