    No one who roamed the steep green mountains and red-rock canyons of Utah Territory was safe from El Cascabel and his renegade warriors - not Janna Wayland, not the wild stallion Lucifer - not even Ty MacKenzie, the stranger who had come for the stallion, and stayed to capture Janna's heart. Now all three must join forces and make their escape, or die trying.

    Being confronted on the beach by a sexy stranger wasn't part of Natalie Conner's plans for a peaceful morning taking photos. And why on earth would he think she's taking pictures of him, anyway? Who is he? One thing’s for sure, he’s hot, and incredibly romantic, feeding Natalie’s wounded soul.

    The storyline was a little slow for me. It started out intriguing by became a little mundane. The story did pick up near the end . The word"baby " was overused by the author. It did leave me wanting to read the second novel in the series. The narrator did an excellent job.

    Evie hangs her head in sorrow for just a moment when she knows she is truly alone. She feels like she's going to her execution, just as he had said. Then she moves forward again. She hops a fence of fieldstone and crosses a field dotted with Queen Anne's lace. Goose bumps rise on her arms as she passes the cluster of windmills that she's seen in a dream. The scent is sweet in the field though, not the scent of heat, like it had been when it was forced upon her in visions.

    Story
    What did you like best about this story?

    Evie never gave up she came close, but as her powers grew stronger, her heart grew bigger, for all she came in contact with. She fought evil to keep her half human half angel soul.


    Which character – as performed by Emily Woo Zeller – was your favorite?

    She did a great job with the Irish Clan of vampire like creatures. Although the king was a bad guy, I began to like him.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Beauty and the Beast, which beast will break her?

    Evie doesn't open her eyes so she can't see him, but she can smell him. He thickens the air she breathes, choking her with his scent... his aroma. She shivers. She has to resist. If she's not strong, then she will be relegated to the same fate as this predator whose sickness infects her even now. But now, she craves him and he knows that; he has been counting on her need to end the gnawing pain. How he would savor her surrender. She's alive, but how much longer will it take until she begs him not to be?

    Would you listen to Intuition again? Why?

    Yes I tend to read erotic romance, this had some romance, and soul mates, but Amy bartol keep the reader wanting more. I will look for mor from this author.


    What does Emily Woo Zeller bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She does an excellent job with the voices for all the different characters. She narrates at a steady pace and emotion is injected in her voice. She was able to bring the characters to life, as to be able to allow me to imagine the characters, and smells.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Evie, was put in the cell, to break her will, no food, little water, her choice was to just die versus give up her soul. She refused to transition into a vampire like creatures Queen. The Kings clans respected her, she could fight.

    Soon-to-be college freshman Evie Claremont had hoped that once she'd arrived on Crestwood's campus, the nightmare that she'd been having would go away. It hasn't. She may be an inexperienced 17-year-old, but she's grounded... sane. She looks for rational explanations to even the strangest circumstances. Since meeting sophomore Reed Wellington, however, nothing makes any sense. Whenever he's near, she feels an attraction to him - a magnetic kind of force pulling her toward him.

    If you could sum up Inescapable in three words, what would they be?

    Reed though hansome can make people forget, and give suggestion to other
    Evie heals remarkably fast, her dreams come true, but they are nightmares


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Evie she was strong, she just wants to blend in as a normal freshman, both parent dead she only has her uncle. Her nightmares have become worse, and details more vivid.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Evie notices the shadows in her room, that she gets cut, and heals fast,and how she gets the evil eye from a gorgeous guy who tells her the campus isn't for her. This leads to needing to know more. We know right always she is different


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

    I got angry at how Reed acted like a bully, that despised her, without knowing her.
    It was cute how the football star came to her rescue, but the Reed uses mind control to lose the guy, yet he came back. Why didn't it last...


    Any additional comments?

    I had to read the next book in the series, did her nightmares come true?

    This is the first book I have read from this author, and listen to buy this narrator I have not regretted the purchase.

    I have subsequently bought the other two in the series. I enjoyed the billionaire chasing a female that refuses him. And I enjoyed the different ways The characters react to each other.

    If you like erotic romance this is definitely a good read.

    This is the first time I have ever listen to anything from this offer.

    This is an explicit erotic romance. I found the authors story line to be intriguing., and the narrator to be equally as good.

    I enjoy the stories of billionaires chasing a woman that turns him down, and learning about each of their secrets.

    So if this is the kind of storyline novel you enjoy and get this. I found myself buying the second and third to the series as well.

    On New Year's Eve, she tumbles 700 years back in time - and into the bed of a darkly handsome knight. Sir Gaston de Varennes wanted a docile bride who would fit into his plans for vengeance and justice, but a trick of time finds him married to a thoroughly modern American lady who turns his castle, his life, and his heart upside down. Will her desperate secret tear them apart after only a few bittersweet weeks of stolen passion - or will they conquer mistrust, treachery, and time itself to discover a love that spans the centuries?

    Would you consider the audio edition of Forever His to be better than the print version?

    The storyline would be good in print or audible version. The narrator did a wonderful job of creating romance with her narration, creating such feelings for the characters.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I love how Saline never gave in to the demands of Gaston, cleaning, cooking, chicken coops she holds her head high to prove her worth, her point. I thought when Terrel and the nuns arrived that Christian would be discovered


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

    I did read the book in a day, Audible has me addicted!


    Any additional comments?

    I guess I must read on .....in the series. I do enjoy books that are in series so there is more if I have enjoyed the first book in the series.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Convicted to be better than the print version?

    The storyline whether in print or audible form the author was able to create memorable characters.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Convicted?

    The most memorable moments were when I finally was able to put the whole story together. What had happened to Clair that caused her catatonic state, where had Tony been, what had happened to synical, revengeful Catherine Marie, and Sophia.


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

    Having a narrator allows me to take the story with me, whether walking the dog, doing the dishes or laundry. Romy made different voices for different characters which always makes the story more enjoyable .


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Clair wants her happily ever after, Tony needed to learn to love, Catherine has plotted revenge for decades...yet Clair is in a mental institute, Tony learned hard lessons, and Catherine Marie ... Contines to plan

    This is the first time this Author, and I have recommended this trilogy to others. I had been left repeatedly wanting to read/hear more!

    Where does Truth rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The story has kept me wanting more, it has been a story with twists and turns. A story that leaves me anticipating when I can hear more Is always a great book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The introduction of Harry and Amber has been like the good guys comming to help. Harry with his compassion, yet lack of understanding, and the huge let down at the hospital made him so real, and just a good guy.


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

    This is first time. I think the performance gets better as the book reads on.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Where does she go from here?


    Any additional comments?

    Onto book 3 Conviction...The excerpt in Truth took my heart..I had to get into Conviction and Find the Truth and know who would receive the Consequences for the Conviction ! Onward with Audible!
