    Tristan MacGregor is famed throughout the Highlands as a silver-tongued seducer and an unrepentant rogue. Bold and charming, he’s dallied with many women, yet none as mysterious as the lass he steals a kiss from at king’s court. Little does he know this beauty is one of his clan’s greatest enemies.

    Had to get this audio book after getting the first in the series from my library. I am hooked! I love this narrator, makes the characters come alive. I always promise myself I will ONLY listen in the car during my commute, but then I end up listening at home too because I can't stand to wait. Tristan is such a different lead man from his older brother in the first one, that keeps it interesting. Now and can't wait to listen to the next two in this series.

    Story

    Just finished listening to this one, and once again enjoyed this author. Have never 'read' any of her books. Discovered them on audible after reading some other reviews. I thought this one was an excellent story. Reminded me of Jane Austen books with the personalities unfolding and the subtle humor. I love most of the books by this author because they are a change of pace from more modern romance writing. I liked all the voices the narrator used except for the stepmother. It was too shrill and 'fake'. However, the others were very good. Will be looking for more titles by this author.

    After years of fighting abroad, Ian MacDonald comes home to find his clan in peril. To save his kin, he must right the wrongs from his past... and claim the bride he's long resisted. As a young lass, Sìleas depended on Ian to play her knight in shining armor. Five years later, Sìleas has grown from an awkward girl into an independent beauty who knows she deserves better than the reluctant husband who preferred war to his wife. Now this devilishly handsome Highlander is finally falling in love. He wants Sìleas - and he won't take no for an answer....

    Story

    This was a fun listen, had a good plot, strong characters and was well-researched. The details supported the story line but did not get boring. I listen to these books for escape, not a history lesson. Naturally things are a little glossed over, it is a romance after all. But that's why it's a nice escape. Appreciated the added 'ghost' and healer, those were very much a part of everyday life for many in that time period. Thought the narrator did an excellent job, loved the way he said Sileas, and the characters were easily distinguished. Will be listening to the next in the series as soon as it is downloaded. Since it is highly unlikely I will ever get to see the real setting for these books in Scotland, I'm glad these stories are available in audio.

    In Maid for the Billionaire Dominic Corisi knew instantly that Abigail Dartley was just the distraction he was looking for, especially since having her took a bit more persuading than he was used to. So when business forces him to fly to China, he decides to take her with him, but on his terms. No promises. No complications. Just sex. Abby has always been the responsible one. She doesn't believe in taking risks; especially when it comes to men - until she meets Dominic.

    Have to wonder as others have, why there were rave reviews for this book. It was very predictable, not even believable in parts. The narrator was good except I didn't care for the voice she gave the heroine. Will not listen to others in the series and definitely not spend a credit on them.

    This was a surprisingly fun book with interesting characters and plot twists. Got it for a sale price, will definitely listen to the next in the series. Had not listened to any by this author. Really liked the humor infused in the scenes, the 'bard' persona assumed by the hero, and the way he saw through to the real personality of the heroine. Guess I'm not as picky as some listeners with this narrator. I thought he was fine, have heard some better but overall I think he did a decent job.

    Thoroughly enjoyed this last book in the series. Had all the details I appreciated from the first one. Cole was one of my favorites in this family from the start. The plot was interesting and had some good twists. Would definitely recommend listening to the previous two in the series first. The narrator was pretty good. I know other reviewers didn't like him much, and I agree I didn't like his voice for Daniel. But overall it did not ruin the series for me.

    First introduced in Julie Garwood's magnificent New York Times bestseller For the Roses, the Clayborne brothers of Blue Belle, Montana, have been embraced by millions more through this trio of #1 bestselling novels. Now collected in one volume, these stories tell of three spirited brothers - once a mismatched gang of street urchins - who learn that love flourishes in the most unexpected places…One Pink Rose.

    Story

    These three short stories are fun, really need to listen to the first book in the series before listening to these. Otherwise you miss many of the details and don't understand the story line. I did miss the development of the characters that was present in the first one. But worth the listen and a good continuation of the series.

    Sebastian Malheur is the most dangerous sort of rake: an educated one. When he’s not scandalizing ladies in the bedchamber, he’s outraging proper society with his scientific theories. He’s desired, reviled, acclaimed, and despised - and he laughs through it all. Violet Waterfield, the widowed Countess of Cambury, on the other hand, is entirely respectable, and she’d like to stay that way. But Violet has a secret that is beyond ruinous, one that ties her irrevocably to England’s most infamous scoundrel: Sebastian’s theories aren’t his. They’re hers.

    Story

    Even though the author obviously used some artistic creativity with the history, this story really makes you think about women, their roles in society, and how far we have come. The romance is great, love Sebastian, his personality, how he treat Violet, and the interaction between these two. There is so much to Violet and her history, her accomplishments, and what women went through before any academic freedom was available. Even with that serious side, this is a fun book and a great listen. As one of those 'smart girls' who has raised three smart girls, I could really relate to this character. I only hope history did have some good outcomes like this story, although I imagine more of the outcomes were lost names and faces of women who worked really hard. As usual this narrator is superb. I love this series, all the characters are unique and I can't wait for the next one to come out.

    Couldn't wait for this one to come out, as I loved the first one in this series. This did not disappoint. Freddy, what can you say, you have to love him, the class clown with much deeper aspects to his personality than he ever lets on. So much fun in this book, and the chinese experimental swimming pigs, they just add to the enjoyment. I only hope the third installment doesn't take as long.

But unfortunately for them, he's also the Fifth Earl of Worth, a friend of the Regent and, their legal guardian.

    Had a hard time getting into this story, I think the plot was not quite as interesting at first and therefore did not captivate me as much as previous books from this author. There was still good dialog, and I enjoyed the second half more than the first. The brother was clueless and that added humor to the whole thing. Overall just not as good as some others I've recently enjoyed by this author.

    This is my third by this author in the last 2 weeks, it's addictive. This narrator really did an excellent job with each voice, so the dialog was even better. The french accent was great, loved the schemes of the two women. The plot twists kept it interesting, overall completely entertaining. Highly recommend if you like historical romance. Nothing steamy here, just lots of wit and humor.
