    South Pass City was a mighty tough town, even by Wyoming Territory standards. And although Garrick Swenson seemed like a tough man, his sensitive soul was plagued with guilt. Then one day he rescued a beautiful lady from drowning, and Garrick suddenly thought of a way to make up for his past sins. Becky White was at the end of her rope, with no home, no money, and no father for her unborn baby. Then, like some gruff angel from heaven, Garrick came to her aid, offering the protection of his name, no strings attached.

    This was my first historical romance with a 'western' theme and it kept my interest to the end. The narrator did a good job ; I was able to visualise the scenes quite easily throughout the story. My only negative was the unbelievable ending.
    Overall a good listen!

    All his life, Rand T’Ash has looked forward to meeting his HeartMate, with whom he could begin a family. Once a street tough, now a respected nobleman and artisan, he has crafted the perfect HeartGift, which, in the custom of the psychically gifted population of the planet Celta, is the way a man finds—and attracts—his wife… Danith Mallow is irresistibly drawn to the magnificent necklace on display in T’Ash’s shop, but she is wary of its creator, despite an overpowering attraction. In a world where everyone is defined by their psychic ability, Danith has little, placing her at the opposite end of the social spectrum from T’Ash. But T’Ash refuses to accept her rejection and sees it as a challenge instead. They are HeartMates, but can T’Ash persuade his beloved to accept her destiny by his side?

    Feed up of the usual themes and looking for a new twist in the romance genre then this may be for you.
    I was enthralled by the whole new world the author created, its customs and culture ... the characters also sucked you in ... you felt T'Ash frustration and Danith's initial fear to become involved. Bits of humour were sliced in nicely among the lines and the narration was great.

    Well worth a credit... looking forward to more stories within this new world!

    I expected a life of music. I expected to raise my son. It took one look to make everything change. I never expected happiness. I never expected to find her. I never expected to feel desire. I never expected I’d be a family man. I never expected to be loved. I never expected to fall in love.They say you should expect the unexpected, I didn’t realize my unexpected would be the forever kind.

    I enjoyed the male narrator immensely but the voice of the female drove me crazy!
    She was probably a good reflection of the female in the story; but if the female lead was really so pitiful one wonders how the guy fell in love with her in the first place.!

    If you would prefer a stronger female in a story then read the book and avoid the voice of the female narrator !

    Unfortunately overall the book was less than I expected !

    Life has never been easy for Duncan Stiel. His childhood was the stuff of nightmares, and his day job as an undercover police officer forces him to hide his true self and occasionally lands him in the hospital. So when he finally meets the perfect man, it comes as no surprise that everything falls apart around him. What Duncan doesn't expect is that the hardest hurdle to get over before he can make a life with Aaron Sutter is the one inside himself.

    Where is the plot??

    After reading "mystery man" which was a great listen
    I decided to give 'wild man' a chance.
    Was I disappointed!
    While the former had suspense and a story line
    I could not find a compelling plot in wild man
    just a lot of family drama separated by 'f' words.

    sorry will have to look trice before I try another listen from this author

    Don Tillman, professor of genetics, has never been on a second date. So when an acquaintance informs him that he would make a "wonderful" husband, his first reaction is shock. Yet he must concede to the statistical probability that there is someone for everyone, and Don sets out to find the perfect partner. She will be punctual and logical - most definitely not a barmaid, a smoker, a drinker, or a late-arriver. Yet Rosie Jarman is all these things. She is also beguiling, fiery, intelligent - and on a quest of her own....

    Ashton is getting tired of being good, of impressing her parents and playing ideal girlfriend to Sawyer Vincent. Sawyer is perfect, a regular Prince Charming, but when he leaves town for the summer, it’s his cousin Beau who catches Ashton’s eye. Beau is the sexiest guy she’s ever seen, and even though he’s dangerous, Ashton is drawn to him. Beau loves his cousin like a brother, so the last thing he wants to do is make a move on Sawyer’s girl. Ashton is off-limits, absolutely. That’s why he does his best to keep his distance, even though he’s been in love with her forever.

    Elle Montgomery's life is going one way. And Cole Carson's is going the opposite. There's no reason their paths should ever intersect, even in a small town in central Washington. But summer in the Methow Valley has other plans for Elle and Cole. After an awkward run-in at the local swimming hole, Elle tries to keep away from the guy who looks at her like she's already lying beneath him in bed. She fails. Cole is about as successful at staying away from the girl who seems immune to his charms.

    This was an easy enjoyable listen. The narrator was suitable.
    Some may feel Elle was a cheater rather than someone who had to find the courage to 'say no' and change her life. If you have never been there - you may find it hard to understand how much courage that takes... but she did find it eventually.
    All in all, it was a worthwhile listen - I would classify as a young adult romance.

    Romance ? mystery? Having read or listened to several of the Sullivan Series by Bella Andre and enjoyed them, I decided to give this a try ... was I disappointed!

    I was unable to finish the book and just skimped the last 10 chapters .. at the end I was not too sure if this was supposed to be romance or mystery ... it ended up being neither since the story was unable to keep my interest and it was only my perseverance that got me past the mid-mark of the story.

    Unfortunately the narrator only helped to emphasize the poor storyline and the trite phrases.
