    Enigmatic and sexy, Professor Gabriel Emerson is a well-respected Dante specialist by day, but by night he devotes himself to an uninhibited life of pleasure. He uses his notorious good looks and sophisticated charm to gratify his every whim, but is secretly tortured by his dark past and consumed by the profound belief that he is beyond all hope of redemption. When the sweet and innocent Julia Mitchell enrolls as his graduate student, his attraction and mysterious connection to her not only jeopardizes his career, but sends him on a journey in which his past and his present collide.

    I enjoyed this series and can't wait for the next book! It had the right balance in story line and sex. I couldn't stop listening until I got through both books. The narrator, John Morgan, was wonderful! I'm a true fan of Sylvain Reynard.

    Jeffrey Archer is such a gifted writer! To say that I'm an avid listener would be an understatement to say the least. Of all the narrators that I've had the pleasure to hear over the last two years, Roger Allam is the one at the top of my list. A stellar performance! I never grew tired of hearing his voice. Because of the intriguing storyline, I couldn't stop listening. The book was over 16 hours but still WAAAAAY too short.

    The rescue on Duran Island did not go as planned. Jonathan Quinn knows that someone is responsible. That someone decided throwing people Quinn cares about into the line of fire in a cold-hearted act of self-preservation was a good idea. He also knows that this someone has made a serious mistake. Because when Quinn gets mad, the last place anyone should ever be is in his crosshairs. He will not stop until the guilty pay. Sometimes revenge is best served now.

    Story

    Now that I've listened to the full series, I want to say that my mind has changed about Scott Brick. The very first book in the series led me to believe that Scott Brick was way over dramatic and I still feel that way. However, as the books progressed, I almost felt like he relaxed and the narrations became better and better. By the time The Enraged ended, I was a fan. As for the stories by Brett Battles...they couldn't be better. I took no break between novels and never grew tired of listening. I will buy ALL future releases of Jonathan Quinn and I hope they come quickly! Early on, I never thought I'd say this...but I do hope Scott Brick narrates all future releases in this series.

    Professor Gabriel Emerson has left his position at the University of Toronto to embark on a new life with his beloved Julianne. Together, he's confident that they can face any challenge. And he's eager to become a father. But Julianne's graduate program threatens Gabriel's plans, as the pressures of being a student become all-consuming. When she is given the honor of presenting an academic lecture at Oxford, Gabriel is forced to confront Julianne about the subject of her presentation - research that conflicts with his own.

    After reading the first two books, I was so delighted when Book 3 was released. Sylvain Reynard is a wonderful author and has the talent to hold the reader's full attention. As for John Morgan...I can't say enough. With the gift of bringing the characters to life, his mellow voice is so transfixing. I'm in awe of his Italian narration...simply beautiful. I sincerely hope Reynard continues this series.

    For Lieutenant Eve Dallas of the NYPSD, the job is a useful reminder of what she has to be grateful for this season. Hosting Roarke's big Irish family for the holiday may be challenging, but it’s a joyful improvement on her own dark childhood. Other couples aren’t as lucky as Eve and Roarke. The Reinholds, for example, are lying on the floor of their Downing Street apartment, stabbed and bludgeoned almost beyond recognition. Those who knew them are stunned - and even more heartbroken by the overwhelming evidence that they were murdered by their own son.

    I have listened to ALL of J. D. Robb's books in this series. Some better than others of course but I will always listen to future releases. I'm ready for the next release! Write faster Nora! : )

    As usual, Susan Ericksen does a splendid job. If someone else does the narration in the future, for me, it would destroy the enjoyment of this series. Susan has made us know each and every character so well and to change to another narrator would make them total strangers.

    This is a good addition to the series for sure!

    A hand-picked cadre of warriors, they had the fierce courage of their Scots forefathers, combined with the stealth and cunning of the Indians who lived beside them in the wilderness. Battling the French in a no-holds-barred combat, they forged a new brand of honor, became a new breed of men - MacKinnon's Rangers. Iain MacKinnon had been forced to serve the British crown, but compassion urged him to save the lovely lass facing certain death at the hands of the Abenaki. He'd defied his orders, endangered his brothers, his men and his mission, all for a woman. But when he held Annie's sweet body in his arms, he could feel no regret.

    Pamela Clare may be my new favorite author! And Kaleo Griffith is beyond good! This book keeps the listener engaged at all times. There's never a dull moment! I caught myself anticipating what was to happen next. If there's a negative thing to be said about Kaleo Griffith, it would be that he didn't read FAST ENOUGH! LOL!!! This book has certainly pulled me into the entire series! Worth the credit? ABSOLUTELY!

    I don't write many reviews but I feel compelled to sing the praises of this author! A narrator can certainly make or break a good book and Kaleo Griffith in my opinion is one of the best. I've listened to all 5 books in the I-Team series and am terribly disappointed that there aren't any more. Pamela Clare incorporates intrigue, suspense, romance and depth to all her characters and story lines. All in this series were good but when I started listening to this last book, I didn't stop until it was over. I will be anxiously waiting for the next one! Sure hope this doesn't end the series!

Nothing except Maren Scofield, a doctor on a mission, a woman who has gotten under Steele’s skin and threatens to crack that unflappable cool he’s legendary for. Steele is determined not to allow Maren past his carefully guarded defenses. But he has a decision to make. Hold tight and shut her out. Or take a chance on something more powerful than he’s ever faced: Love.

Never disappointed in his talent. I especially love the KGI novels. Never a dull moment and the narrator brings such life to each character.

    I love Jennifer Ashley. She is a talented author! I especially appreciate the talents of Angela Dawe as a narrator. Her performance brings the books alive. I didn't think anyone could rival Susan Ericksen's talents but I believe Angela Dawe is equally as good! With her narration, there's no doubt which character is speaking. It's a wonderful listen!

    Clare Harrington is considered a miracle, but everything that's happened since she recovered from a three-year coma has been something less than miraculous. Her 18-year-old daughter, Kate, a talented singer and songwriter, sets out to pursue her musical dreams in Nashville. Her parents have agreed to allow Kate to spend a year there, but they couldn't have anticipated Kate falling in love with a much older man. Her newly divorced parents are forced back together to confront their wayward daughter.

    I am a real fan of this artist. The story is captivating! However, the narration leaves so much to be desired AND the background noise is extremely aggravating. With this being said...I'm looking forward to moving on to the 3rd in the series. For some reason, the 4th isn't available and I urge Audible to offer it ASAP!

Recently back to work after spending more than a year tending to his comatose wife, Jack is focused on getting through each day and caring for his three daughters. However, the moment he sets eyes on Andrea Walsh, the interior designer who has come to decorate the hotel his company is building in Newport, Rhode Island, Jack begins to wonder if Andi might be his second chance.

    I enjoyed the story line of this book more than most. HOWEVER, the narration wasn't as good as it should have been. Also, there was a noise in the background that drove me crazy. It was like an air noise...it would stop at times and then steadily grow to a deafening distraction.
