    Tracker must rescue kidnapped heiress Ari Blake and deliver her safely to the Hell's Eight compound - by any means necessary. Turns out that includes marrying her, if he means to escort her and her infant daughter across the Texas Territory. Tracker hadn't bargained on a wife - especially such a fair, blue-eyed beauty. But the erotic pleasures of the marriage bed more than make up for the surprise....

    Tara says: "The best of the series"
    "Great book, but the narrator puts me to sleep."
    Overall

    I would rather have read this book on my own than listen to her narration.
    Ari sounds tired ALL THE TIME!
    I can understand Tracker's low voice, but there is no feeling in Ari's voice that shows any personality that I know she has.
    I'm so disappointed.
    Take my advice. Buy the book and read it yourself.

    When 28-year-old Lexi Smart wakes up in a London hospital, she's in for a big surprise: Her teeth are perfect. Her body is toned. Her handbag is Vuitton. Having survived a car accident - in a Mercedes no less - Lexi has lost a big chunk of her memory, three years to be exact, and she's about to find out just how much things have changed.

    What did you like best about this story?

    Watching Lexi grow into herself. It reminds me a little of 13 going on 30, for a more widely known reference.


    Have you listened to any of Rosalyn Landor’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    After this audiobook, I also download Undomestic Goddess, another of Sophie Kinsella's book. This author is pretty awesome!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    YES! Laughed so many times.

    A worth while addition to a number of Sophie Kinsella books I have in my library. Rosalyn Landor did a great job with it. Another voice for these stand alone books. I love that Sophie's books have these smart, strong female characters. They are funny, quirky, and yet push against the definition of femininity. In this story, our heroine is a lawyer, and one smart one at that.
    I really enjoyed listening to the book, and this is one book I will never feel like reading on my own because the narrator does such a good job at it.

Coming back from a thoroughly ruinous sales trip to Glasgow, the plane she is on encounters some air turbulence, and she ends up spilling her guts to the handsome American sitting next to her. He gets to hear that she fibbed to get her current job and that she has never been able to satisfactorily find her G-spot. Then, the plane lands...and the American turns up in her life again. He's the CEO of her company....

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

    Oh, definitely yes! I have been listening on my audible app and my mom's even hooked. Can't deny this is a funny book and the narrator is the best!


    What about Kate Reading’s performance did you like?

    The distinction between her british characters and american characters were exact. And I loved how she narrated both Emma and Jack. Oh, Jack's voice was thick and attractive!


    Any additional comments?

    I wouldn't even both reading the book on my own. Nothing make it better than listening to Kate Reading. She has the best voice! Aside from Nadia May, I think Kate Reading is my favorite narrator!

    My favorite character has always been Dickon.


    Any additional comments?

    I love everything about this audio-book except when I ordered it, I didn't pay much attention and didn't realize it was the abridged version! I love this narrator, but I have yet to find her narrating the unabridged version yet. If I do find her, her version would definitely be the one I buy.

    This was one of the cases where I watched the movie before I read the book. And man, it was such a depressing read! I spend the rest of that week feeling so down. But once I had some distance from it, I can appreciate the beauty of the story. The struggle of wanting to save one child and giving birth to another to do so. Is that second child a means to the end or do you try to protect her too?
    The performance was great. And the writing left Jodi Picoult on my list of worth reading authors. When you are in the mood to pounder on something heavy.

    From the moment he beds Desi, Caine knows turmoil will follow. Desi might have the face of a temptress, but she also has a will of iron, and while she needs his protection, she's determined that no man will control her again. They establish an uneasy bond, but it isn't enough for Caine. He wants all Desi has to offer. He wants her screams, her moans, her demands...everything. Yet there's still a bounty on Desi's head, and keeping her sexually satisfied is proving easier than keeping her alive.

    What made the experience of listening to Caine's Reckoning the most enjoyable?

    Listening to all the character's personalities comes to life by Zoe Winslow's masterful voice. Even now, when I read the book on its own, I still hear her interpretation of the characters in my head.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The strength in Desi and the patient love in Caine. All the characters were lovable, and watching Desi slowly trust a man again, trust that she had hope for the future, and fall in love with her strong, supportive, and protective husband was great! Not to mention the erotic parts are HOT!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It's a book to be savored, but if I had a day all to myself, I wouldn't mind.


    Any additional comments?

    Sarah McCarty is a under-rated author meanly because she's shy around technology. Her books would be more wildly read if more people knew about it. The Hell's Eight was my first series by her, and I devoured each and every book that's currently in the series. Then I went and devoured all the rest of her books. She writes many of the best western heroes I have had the pleasure of reading. An author not to be missed.

    Shy, fragile Fanny Price is the consummate "poor relation". Sent to live with her wealthy uncle Thomas, she clashes with his spoiled, selfish daughters and falls in love with his son. Their lives are further complicated by the arrival of a pair of witty, sophisticated Londoners, whose flair for flirtation collides with the quiet, conservative country ways of Mansfield Park.

    deborah henderson says: "Jane Austen Classic"
    "not a very interesting book however"
    Overall

    I love Jane Austen. Pride and Prejudice, Persuasion, and Sense and Sensibility, are great books to read. However, Fanny, the main character in Mansfield Park is less engaging than all the other characters in the 3 previous books mentioned. She would be someone less sure of herself, and I believe people can some times relate however.

    The last novel completed by Jane Austen before she died at 41, Persuasion is often thought to be the story of the author's own lost love. Sir Walter Elliot of Kellynch Hall has three daughters: Elizabeth, who shares his haughty vanity and, at 28 has found no one good enough to marry; Mary, who has, with some condescension, married the son of the local squire; and admirable Anne, who "was nobody with either father or sister".

    Tad Davis says: "Wonderful characters"
    "Great story and PERFECT narrator"
    Overall

    This is one of my favorite stories by Jane Austen. And to have it read by one of my fav narrator is so wonderful!
    Her voice does need a bit of get use to. But her abilities to make each characters come to life, and do it so well, well, that's priceless!
    My first read by this narrator was for Pride and Prejudice. Her enactment of Mrs. Bennett was the best I have heard from any Jane Austen readers.
    I <3 Nadia May~!
