    Blythe Gifford’s spellbinding medieval romances have captured the hearts of fans and critics alike. Set in 14th-century England, In the Master’s Bed features Jane de Weston, a young woman who decides to disguise herself as a man to gain her independence. What she doesn’t count on is falling for Duncan, the strapping Scotsman who takes her on as his apprentice. When he discovers Jane’s deception, Duncan knows he should send her away, but the yearning he feels for her is begging to be unleashed - and Jane is a very willing pupil.

    Story

    Cute love story but the ending is kinda boring and upsetting. Girl is a tomboy in a time when ladies are suppose to be ladies but she finds love in the tutor who trains her. He discovers she is a girl and teaches her all about smex. Ending get boring after the love affair though, I felt like the writer just wanted to end the story.

    Not a buy. Wait for a credit.

    Narration was good.

    Story

    This was a bit ghetto, a bit class and a splash of erotica... but all in all, I totally enjoyed the story. "Ki-Ki Mi-Mi" or as the (h) brother Kent call her, is a lawyer (District Attorney) who ends up falling for a "white boy" named King. The heat between these two are hotty hot... but the mystery surrounding King...who is he, what does he do... how is he a gangster but live in the "Clock Tower", the most expensive penthouse in NY....

    Eventually the book takes a turn as Ki-Ki's professional life crosses with her personal life and the end was well... Happy I guess... I am not really sure...

    Worth a Sale and maybe a credit... there are a few racial words that some may be uncomfortable with...

    Narration was actually perfect for this type of book...I really enjoyed it and felt wrapped up in Ki-Ki's world... from family drama then switching to the professional world...

    The biker gangs passing through Lobo Norte don’t scare Ofelia anymore. All those men are the same: scarred, homeless, and broken…just like Ofelia. They’ve become a blur of forgettable faces watching her strip. She takes off her clothes, takes their money, and wipes them from her memory instantly. But Trouble is different. A biker with a wolf tattoo and tortured eyes, he sees beyond Ofelia’s tough disguise to a more fragile woman within.

    I was so confused in the beginning but I stuck with it... ended up liking the book! I really didn't like the Fang Bikers... but Trouble aka Cooper won me over... the smexual heat in this book borders on angsty as nothing really seems to happen until way... way into the book...but it was well worth it! Nice mystery adventure throughout the story with finding the meaning behind the tarot card that just won't go away!

    Narration was pretty good... many shift in voices...no two characters really sounded the same... Down is one of my favorites.

    Nice credit or sale...

    Ok... so this really can't be described as Historical, as the verbage used just wasn't correct for the time period...but you know what... I actually liked that about this book. It was great... I wish some of my current favorite Historical Romances, add a F*** or D*** it, here or there...

    Very smexy book... this boarders on erotica...but the whole historical twist makes it a fine and extremely smexy romance...

    Well worth a credit..I enjoyed it.

    Narration was great too.

She had two choices: Call the cops and be killed by his family's mafia connections or kill him first and hope to survive. There was no choice to her. She killed the bastard first and went to the one person who could protect her: Carter Reed. He's a weapon

    Maybe I am totally wrong in saying this...but Mafia Romance is sooooo extremely hot! I totally loved that Carter was a criminal, a bad to the bone criminal, and I loved the drama, action, and criminal activities done thoughout the story...

    I mean why listen to a story about bad guys when they don't do anything bad! So this was awesome... great smexy time and romance between Emma and Carter. Loved the ending...and I really hope there will be a book 2, because I so wanna dive into Teresa and Noah's story! Great Great...

    Credit well spent... Great narration...love those shift in voices!

    I am huge J. Ashley fan, so I usually enjoy anything from this author...but honestly these Shifter Unbound books are awesome! We r getting so close to finding out the whole collar thing and how to get them off our smexy shifters! I simply love how J.A. weaves the two shiftertowns together, and now with Jace mating a shifter from Austin...well it one big o'l happy family.

    This book goes deeper into the faire realm, more so than book 2 and Jace's book.The plot is getting deeper but so enjoyable!

    Narration was awesome...

    Well worth the credit or a sale...maybe not a buy...as it's over 10 bucks...

    Eliza Smith has never been the one to seek a relationship. She's never dated a guy in her life, never even hugged a man (outside of her father/manager of the hot and popular rock band, FireNine) but when she decides to spend her summer on tour with FireNine, it all changes. Eliza really gets to meet Gage Grendel - her former crush from high school and the lead singer of FireNine - and witness sides to him to which she'll begin to truly despise. She'll ignore him, she'll dislike his ways, she'll do anything to try and stay away from him until Gage finally gets her to slip up and give in.

    I totally like the story.... BUT.... I totally was bored throughout it...

    The beginning was exciting and interesting... then meeting the band was interesting too...but the story started to drag with all the angsty parts...

    Don't misunderstand... the story had all the hot smexyness one would think to this story... Yes it was very very smexy...at times... it is the times the story wasn't about the smexyness...in those parts... I was rather bored...just wish the story would move on...

    THEN the ending...WT...F? I was so upset... So now I am just conflicted... Great, Great Story...but boring in parts and hated the ending... So there you go... listen at your own angsty risk!

    Narration was ok...

    Good Sale... haven't decided if I spent my credit wisely or not...because again... I am conflicted.. I liked it...but I didn't!

    Psychologist Elizabeth Cole prepared for the worst when she accepted a job on a newly discovered world--a world where every colonist is tethered to an alien who manifests in the form of a dead loved one. But she never expected she'd struggle with the requirement to shun these "ghosts." She never expected to be so attracted to the charming Irishman assigned as her supervisor. And she certainly never expected to discover she died in a transport crash en route to the planet.

    This was actually less ghostly than one might think. Yes the dead people are ghosts in a sense as they are people who have died and came and are bonded to people that they have in their lifetime. Oh...this st o ryan isn't set on planet earth..but a distance plant called RR or something like that. Smart move by the author as it is much easier to wrap ur mind around the ghost r aliens thing.

    The story literally becomes engaging right from the beginning...and remains that way till the end. The romance and character development was a nice bonus.

    Well worth the credit...narration was great as well...

    Austin Glass seems to have it all: a loving fiancée, a future with the FBI, and a healthy-sized trust fund. At least on the surface. He also has a grin and a wisecrack for every situation. But the smile he presents to the world hides a painful past he’s buried too deeply to remember, and his quips mask bitterness and insecurity. Austin has himself and most of the whole world fooled - until he meets a redhead in a pair of bunny slippers.

    Story

    This book was awesome! M/M romance fans...you are so going to want this book! The story is what is so great, more so than the character development...but wow, there are some great, and extremely well developed characters, right down to the bevey of secondary characters...

    The romance is slow and engaging...not many amex scenes...but unlike most m/m romance books where u literally need the smex at times to drive the story forward...the smex was more so apart of the story and written so well you hardly notice there is smex in this book. Although good scenes, I do wish there were more...but because u learn the background of the characters so well...when they actually get around to smexy time...u understand why they only went as far as they did...made perfect sense!

    I LOVED the background of the 3 not brothers, but brothers! I loved the dialogue in this book....so funny, so serious and so dramatic! Just Awesome...AWESOME!

    Narration was great...first time with this narrator...

    Definitely worth the credit... Remember this is a m/m romance, mystery, suspense book...so if neither of those are ur cup of tea...well skip this and drink cola!

    ** I have a new love for bunny slippers!
