    In the feuding English court, gentle Lady Madelyne suffered the cruel whims of her ruthless brother, Baron Louddon. Then, in vengeance for a bitter crime, Baron Duncan of Wexton—the Wolf—unleashed his warriors against Louddon's domain. Exquisite Madelyne was the prize he catured...but when he gazed upon the proud beauty, he pledged to protect her with his life.

    Jordy says: "Julie Garwood writes the best Highlander books!"
    "Wonderful story, pleasing audio book"
    Overall

    This is one of my favorite Julie Garwood books! I was a bit leary when I saw that Anne Flosnik was the narrator but I feel she did a nice job with this book.

    Unlike Gentle Warrior where Ms. Flosnik groweled the Geoffrey's lines, she used a much better voice for Duncan.

    A very enjoyable listen!

    With indifferent parents, Iona Sheehan grew up craving devotion and acceptance. From her maternal grandmother, she learned where to find both: a land of lush forests, dazzling lakes, and centuries-old legends. Ireland. County Mayo, to be exact. Where her ancestors’ blood and magic have flowed through generations - and where her destiny awaits.

    What did you love best about Dark Witch?

    I like the story, the flashbacks, the interconnected characters.


    If you’ve listened to books by Nora Roberts before, how does this one compare?

    I've listened to almost off of the Nora Roberts books on Audio CD/Audible. This narrator was, for me, one of the worst.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    First the Irish Brogue sounded more like old witches cackling. Then for intensity the narrator would crescendo into a shout for a lot of the scenes. Seriously loud. Romance - shout, danger lurking around the corner - shouting. I literally would have to turn the volume down in the car. I like an intense and moving love scene - when it's hollered at me, not so much.


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

    NO1


    Any additional comments?

    This is the first audio performance I wish I had just read the book. If you need a little Nora, I'd recommend the Audio version of Born in Fire, Born in Ice, Born in Shame.

    Judith Hampton was as beautiful as she was proud and loyal. Her dear Scottish friend from childhood was about to give birth, and Judith had promised to be at her side. But there was another reason for the journey from her bleak English home to the Highlands: to meet the father she had never known, the Laird Maclean. Nothing prepared her, however, for the sight of the Scottish barbarian who was to escort her into his land...Iain Maitland, laird of his clan, a man more powerfully compelling than any she had ever encountered.

    Ryder is the hardest Montgomery brother to figure out - with a tough-as-nails outside and possibly nothing too soft underneath. He’s surly and unsociable, but when he straps on a tool belt, no woman can resist his sexy swagger. Except, apparently, Hope Beaumont, the innkeeper of his own Inn BoonsBoro.... As the former manager of a D.C. hotel, Hope is used to excitement and glamour, but that doesn’t mean she can’t appreciate the joys of small-town living. She’s where she wants to be - except for in her love life....

    Where does The Perfect Hope rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I really like the way Mr. MacLoud performs a book. With the exception of his children's voices, there is just about the right amount of change between characters. Nice cadence.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Perfect Hope?

    So many....I was laughing, crying, and sighing. Great in this type of genre.


    What does MacLeod Andrews bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The bringing the characters to life. I think I acutally skim more of the story if I'm reading vs listening to an audiobook.


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

    It was too long for that but it kept me company for many work drives.

    Owen is the organizer of the Montgomery clan, running the family’s construction business with an iron fist - and an even less flexible spreadsheet. And though his brothers give him grief for his compulsive list making, the Inn BoonsBoro is about to open right on schedule. The only thing Owen didn’t plan for was Avery MacTavish... Avery’s popular pizza place is right across the street from the inn, giving her a firsthand look at its amazing renovation - and a newfound appreciation for Owen.

    What made the experience of listening to The Last Boyfriend the most enjoyable?

    I really enjoyed the performance of this book. The story was a great continuation of the first in the series, The Next Always, but stands on it's own too.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Best? I think the twist that I will not reveal for the others who haven't experienced the story yet. Plus the secondary characters of Owen's mother and Avery's father.


    What does MacLeod Andrews bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I like hearing books performed by men. Mr. MacLeod's narration is a good cadence and tone. I think when I listen to a book I actually hear more of the story than when I just read it myself.


    Any additional comments?

    Very enjoyable performance. I look forward to more romance narrations from this performer.

    The historic hotel in Boonsboro has endured war and peace, the changing of hands, and even rumored hauntings. Now it’s getting a major face-lift from the Montgomery brothers and their eccentric mother. As the architect in the family, Beckett’s social life consists mostly of talking shop over pizza and beer. But there’s another project he’s got his eye on: the girl he’s been waiting to kiss since he was sixteen.

    What did you love best about The Next Always?

    I love the character development in Nora Roberts' books. This was no exception. Although the recipe seems to be repeated from other series there were enough differences to make this really enjoyable. A few nice twists too.


    What other book might you compare The Next Always to and why?

    The McKade Brothers books by Nora Roberts. Similar premise with brothers finding true love.


    Which character – as performed by MacLeod Andrews – was your favorite?

    Becket for sure.


    Any additional comments?

    If you get past the shrill children's voices from the performer the rest is pure pleasure!

    I loved the O'Hurley's when I read these books long ago in paper. The narrations are EXCELLENT and the stories rich and vibrant. You'll laugh, cry, and sigh. WELL worth the price. Enjoy!
