    Best-selling author Monica McCarty captivates millions with swashbuckling Scottish romances like The Hawk. Brilliant seafarer Erik MacSorley has never encountered a gale he couldn’t weather or a woman he couldn’t win—until he drags a wet, halfclothed “nursemaid” from the Irish Sea. But Ellie’s ordinary dress belies the truth that she’s the spirited daughter of an Irish nobleman. And her determination to resist Erik’s charms is a challenge he can’t resist.

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

    Monica McCarty's main characters actually did live in the times she has so thoroughly brought to life. Little is known of the actual details of their lives, of course, but she has masterfully woven the history into her stories and her characters' personas.

    Here is the story of Erik MacSorley, one member of Robert, the Bruce's elite secret army. Half Viking, half Gael, and entirely too charming and handsome, Hawk is one of the most renowned seafarers of his time. His highly secret mission gets off to a very unpropitious start when a young woman, celebrating an ancient pagan ritual, accidently stumbles upon his meeting with the Irish mercenaries he is recruiting to Robert's army. When he does the only thing he can to save her, it very nearly destroys both him and his mission.


    What other book might you compare The Hawk to and why?

    First read: The Chief by Monica McCarty to get the foundation.


    What about Robert McNab???s performance did you like?

    His performance is improving, though he is not a master with the Irish and Scots brogues.


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

    Yes -- near the end when Erik truly realizes the misery he has cast upon his own future.

    It's 1811, and the threat of revolution haunts the upper classes of King George III's England. Then a beautiful young woman is found savagely murdered on the altar steps of an ancient church near Westminster Abbey. A dueling pistol found at the scene and the damning testimony of a witness both point to one man - Sebastian St. Cyr, Viscount Devlin, a brilliant young nobleman shattered by his experience in the Napoleonic Wars.

    Marcheta says: "Great start to Sebastian St. Cyr series"

    It was a little different in a very good way from other regency novels. I am looking forward to the next novel in the series.

    In America's last wilderness there are no limits to what a man can do. For detective Nick Brodie, that means keeping the perps off the streets of Anchorage 24/7. Nick has never backed down from danger, but after the horrors he's seen, he's definitely in need of a break. Samantha Hollis never thought she'd meet anyone like Nick, especially in a place like Las Vegas. But after one reckless, passionate night, she discovers the charismatic stranger is everything she wants in a man. But can he ever be anything more than a one-night stand?

  • Hamlet, Prince of Denmark: A Novel

    Story
    (1280)

    It is a tale of ghosts, of madness, of revenge - of old alliances giving way to new intrigues. Denmark is changing, shaking off its medieval past. War with Norway is on the horizon. And Hamlet - son of the old king, nephew of the new - becomes increasingly entangled in a web of deception - and murder. Beautifully performed by actor Richard Armitage ("Thorin Oakenshield" in the Hobbit films), Hamlet, Prince of Denmark takes Shakespeare’s original into unexpected realms, reinventing a story we thought we knew.

    Robert says: "Fantastic whether you like Shakespeare or not!"
    "Hartley and Hewson have done it again!"

    Any additional comments?

    A. J. Harley has once again masterfully added flesh and sinew to a Shakespeare tragedy, this time bringing the story of Hamlet to life. Those who have succeeded in reading the original may not appreciate Hartley's work. But for those of us who, despite our desire, have been unable to overcome the difficulty inherent in reading Shakespeare's Hamlet, Hartley and Hewson have given us a wonderful gift. And Richard Armitage was an awesome pick for narration.

    Robert McCammon brings the hero of his previous novel, Matthew Corbett, to 18th-century New York, where a killer wields a bloody and terrifying power over a bustling city carving out its identity - and over Matthew's own uncertain destiny.

    The unsolved murder of a respected doctor has sent ripples of fear throughout a city teeming with life and noise and commerce. Who snuffed out the good man's life with the slash of a blade on a midnight street? The local printmaster has labeled the fiend "the Masker," adding fuel to a volatile mystery...

    Kathy says: "Addicting"
    "An excellent follow-on to "Speaks the Nightbird""

    A terrific story set in early 18th century New York. Edoardo Ballerini once again does a wonderful job on the narration. And the evil that Matthew Corbett encounters and unravels will make you shudder as you listen.

    In a moment of recklessness, Gervase Tregarth, sixth Earl of Crowhurst, swears he’ll marry the next eligible lady to cross his path. Cloistered at his ancestral castle in Cornwall, with nary a suitable woman for miles, he never expects he’ll have to fulfill his pledge, at least not until the London season begins. But then he meets his neighbor, the very appealing Madeline Gascoigne.

    Years of secret service to the Crown have taught Gervase the value of always having a loophole - there will be no wedding if he and Madeline are not compatible in every way.
