    Eve Dallas is the tough lieutenant hot on his trail, but this is unlike any case she’s ever been assigned - or any killer she’s ever pursued. A police sketch based on eye-witness testimony reveals the killer has green skin, swollen red eyes, goblin ears, and a dislocated jaw-structure that defies the human form. Is it a mask? Is it make-up? Or is the explanation more sinister? Dallas faces off against multiple suspects - all of them students of medicine capable of precisely slicing the ears, noses, and eyes of the three victims.

    If you're reading the books in order, this one would be 33.5, after New York to Dallas. Susan Erickson, as always, does a wonderful job as narrator. I thoroughly enjoy the Dallas novels and have downloaded all of them. Chaos wasn't the best one ever, but it was worth the price and the time if you enjoy the series.

Determined to hunt down her very own hero, one who will sweep her off her feet and into wedded bliss, and despairing of finding him in London’s staid ballrooms, Heather Cynster steps out of her safe world and boldly attends a racy soiree. But her promising hunt is ruined by the supremely interfering Viscount Breckenridge, who whisks her out of scandal....

    Story

    I'm probably spoiled by the inflections that Mr Prebble has provided in the past. Mr Brenher has a voice that was very easy to listen to, and his characters were easily identifiable. It just wasn't what I was used to for a Cynster novel. I found myself tuning out, not keeping up with the changes in the story. I missed the enthusiasm that Mr. Prebble provided in the past. I will buy the next in the series as I enjoy the stories and listen during my housework and yard work. Change Happens, but I'll miss Simon Prebble if he doesn't return. Mr Brehner is a good narrator and made a good attempt at filling Mr Prebble's shoes; I hope to hear him narrate other novels in the future (just not Cynster novels).

    Overall

    In all, it was a good story and a good end to the Burning Lamp trilogy. I was turned off at first by the new narrator - it's not the same as most of the Jayne Castle books. I got used to the narrator, but I still got mixed signals. Most of the heroines in Jayne Castle/Jayne Ann Krentz/Amanda Quick novels are strong women. The narrator in this story turned every female in the story into a sex kitten. Annoying at first, but after I got in to the story it didn't bother me as much. Conclusion - good story, but the sex oozing from the heroine's voice was a distraction. Not in a good way, either.

    A superb high quality hypnosis program by Glenn Harrold that utilizes skilled Hypnotherapy techniques to help guide the listener in to a deep relaxing sleep. The audio also helps the listener find solutions to any problems through your dreams.

    Overall

    Worked really great for the first couple of months. Narrator is soothing and I fell asleep within 15-20 minutes of turning it on. Never got to the second part. After a few weeks though, I started anticipating what he'd say next, and was more focused on the words than in doing as I was told. I only use it now when I absolutely cannot get to sleep. Sometimes it works, sometimes not.

    Simon Frederick Cynster has a perfect life, one of enormous wealth and impeccable social status. His lean handsomeness turns the heads of naive debutantes, while his sensual allure ensures he never lacks for more sophisticated partners for a night of pleasure.

    A User says: "Fast read"
    "Buy the book, not this narration"
    Overall

    I enjoy all SL novels, especially the Cynster stories. This story would have been as fabulous as the others if not for the poor narration. It is quite obvious that the narrator is no Simon Prebble. While her voice is very pleasant, Ms. Carr left a lot to be desired with the lack of inflection. The love scenes, the drawing room conversations and even the action parts were read with the same, monotonous voice. The hero and heroine along with the supporting characters all shared the same voice. Unless you listened carefully to each and every word, it was difficult to tell when something of import was happening and when the "filler" parts of the story were taking place.

    Listening to this novel was incredibly boring. Not quite painful, but a very tedious listen. Unfortunate, as the story itself is very good.

    Charlotte Arkendale was quite sure she knew all there was to know about men. After all, she'd made a highly lucrative career out of steering marriage-minded women away from untrustworthy members of the opposite sex. But nothing in Charlotte's considerable experience had prepared her for the arresting stranger who appeared on her doorstep to apply for the position of her new man-of-affairs.He claimed to be a respectable gentleman - discreet, unassuming, ordinary to the point of being dull. Yet something about the set of Mr. St. Ives's broad shoulders and the unrelenting determination that smoldered in the depths of his amber eyes warned Charlotte to be wary. For the strong-minded beauty was already embroiled in a wealth of danger.Two months earlier, Miss Drusilla Heskett had become on of Charlotte's clients. Now the woman was dead, murdered in her own home, and Charlotte feared that the killer may have been one of the suitors she herself had advised Miss Heskett to reject. Still, with the right man by her side, Charlotte was certain she could uncover the truth and bring Drusilla's killer to justice. But was the enigmatic St. Ives Mr. Right...or Mr. Wrong?

    June says: "Simple romance with dated reading style"

    Overall

    Don't get me wrong, the story itself is fantastic - Amanda Quick is an excellent author (in all her categories and names). However, the narrator was not very good and the multiple muscial intros were annoying and made listening difficult. Would buy the book just to get the story again rather than listen to it one more time.

    Lavinia Lake knew Tobias March was nothing but trouble. She never imagined that soon he would become her partner in a quest that would grow more deadly - and more compelling - with each passing day.

    M. Pennell says: "Awful"

    I've always liked this author, but I've been leery of getting into the Lake/March Series; don't know why. I'm glad I did. Very entertaining-tough to put the iPod away! Narrator was good, keeping the different voices consistent through the story. I look forward to continuing the series. I should have known Ms. Krentz/James/Castle/Quick would deliver. Nicely done!
