    A fabulous lost Amazon city once inhabited by women warriors and containing a rare red diamond: it sounded like myth, but archeologist Jillian Sherwood believed it was real, and she was willing to put up with anything to find it - even Ben Lewis. Ruffian, knock-about, and number one river guide in Brazil, Ben was all man - over six feet of rock-hard muscles that rippled under his khakis, with lazy blue eyes that taunted her from his tanned face.

    Infamous for his wild, sensual needs, Lazarus Huntington, Lord Caire, is searching for a savage killer in St. Giles, London's most notorious slum. Widowed Temperance Dews knows St. Giles like the back of her hand-she's spent a lifetime caring for its inhabitants at the foundling home her family established. Now that home is at risk.....

    Katheryne says: "I don't understand the bad reviews. I enjoyed it!"
    "suspenseful!"
    Overall

    This audiobook grabbed me from the first. The plot is actually very interesting, especially if you like period novels. This one is set in London. It has the drama of "aristocracy meets working class," and in this case the woman is lovely, strong and hard working. The aristocrat of the story is a rather handsome, yet unloved/unlovable duke. If you've ever read a romance novel, you can imagine what happens. It's also a murder mystery with all the normal conflicts and plot twists. The dialogue is believable and the narrator is good. One caution, for those not interested in, um, "romantic" scenes. This audio book is full of "romance." They're done well and add to the thrill of the story, so to speak, but if you were to fast-forward through them you'd be left with a pretty quick story. Overall this audio book kept me on the treadmill a lot longer, helped with the housework, and was definitely entertaining, so it gets 5 stars.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    "Fantastic!"
    Overall

    Not only was this a fantastic book, I ADORED listening to the narration by these wonderful readers. With their distinct accents lending personality to each character, the book came alive for me. This was a real treat, one of the best audiobooks I've ever heard!

    Max Rotherbridge couldn't believe it. Along with the dukedom of Twyford, he - London's most notorious rogue - had inherited wardship of four devilishly attractive sisters! Including the irresistible Caroline Twinning. The eldest Twinning was everything he had ever wanted in a woman, but even Max couldn't seduce his own ward...or could he?

    Rita says: "The Rouge had no idea lol"
    "boring"
    Overall

    I have read her books before, and they are usually not at all boring. But this audio book is SO dull. I suspect the narrator has something to do with it. She talks slowly, with an English accent of some sort. Also, the story line bounces between the 4 sisters, and they were partnered up with their respective beaus early on, so there's no suspense. I may not make it the whole way through this one.

    Rock is something of a nerd - or so his best friend, Kelli, has always claimed, simply because he's a brainy guy. He's an up-and-coming businessman, determined to go far fast - and he's the total opposite of fun-loving Kelli. To his regret, Kelli has always seen him as a best friend, never as a potential lover.

    Judy says: "Didn't live up to it's potential"
    "good for two workouts"
    Overall

    If you're looking for something to pass the time, this is entertaining. It's not particularly suspenseful or unusual - just about what you'd expect from a Harlequin. Still, good for two workouts...

    Emma Corrigan has a long list of secrets, one of which is that she is afraid of flying. 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....

    "could not put down the ipod"
    Overall

    Very funny. I was laughing out loud at the gym. (also many cringe-worthy moments, which makes it very captivating.) My only criticism is that the narrator's voice did not seem to match the age of the main character. It took a while for me to get past that. I wish they had used a more youthful sounding person.

    Meet Peter Brown, a young Manhattan emergency room doctor with an unusual past that is just about to catch up with him. His morning begins with the quick disarming of a would-be mugger, followed by a steamy elevator encounter with a sexy young pharmaceutical rep, topped off by a visit with a new patient - and from there Peter's day is going to get a whole lot worse and a whole lot weirder.

    Chuck says: "Great book and great narrator"
    "thrilling"
    Overall

    I couldn't put down the ipod. Despite the cynicism of the narrator, you really pull for him. It's a very interesting voice. There are tons of f-bombs and lots of violence, so it's a little surprising that this soccer mom liked the book so much. All I can say is it's very suspenseful and entertaining - a really good escape. Reminded me of the Sopranos.
