    Grace Peterson is desperate, in hiding, and on the run after escaping a shadowy group determined to exploit her extraordinary ability to heal others. Her only lifeline - an unerring telepathic ability she shares with her sister - has been severed, leaving her alone and vulnerable. And time is running out.... Enlisted to bring Grace home is Rio, relentless member of the KGI. He's unprepared for his reaction to this wounded, damaged woman, and he's fiercely determined to protect her from those who nearly destroyed her.

    Story

    I almost always enjoy Ms. Banks books. They do have a certain predictability like most genres. And if truth be told, I may have enjoyed this story more with a different narrator. Mr. Berkely did not meet my expectations on the female characters. It actually became distracting enough for me that I did not even finish the book. Perhaps this book is better enjoyed in either paperback, or ebook?

  • 13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi

    13 Hours presents, for the first time ever, the true account of the events of September 11, 2012, when terrorists attacked the US State Department Special Mission Compound and a nearby CIA station called the Annex in Benghazi, Libya. A team of six American security operators fought to repel the attackers and protect the Americans stationed there. Those men went beyond the call of duty, performing extraordinary acts of courage and heroism, to avert tragedy on a much larger scale.

    Story

    Although I had read and heard enough to know what to expect in this book, I was still absolutely captivated by the personalities and the unfolding story. As soon as I finished it, I started at the beginning, again. So many people with individual stories all a part of 13 HOURS IN BENGAZI....it took multiple readings before I was able to retain all that was contained. Well done.

    Columnist Bridget Hartwell agrees to write about BDSM to impress her new executive editor at Sultry, the "sex-positive magazine for sex-positive women." Unfortunately, it's a topic she knows absolutely nothing about...but if she ever wants that promotion, she'll need to learn the ropes, fast.

    Story

    About half-way through this audiobook, I searched to find other books by this author. Now I have to wait until her 2nd book makes it through the publishing process. Too bad for us! Purely Professional was wonderful! The narrator did a good job, too. Accenting the appropriate syllable and words within the sentences to be true to the authors word choices.

    I don't want to give away the plot, potential readers can read the summary for that. I just want to say how much I enjoyed this book....content....delivery....concepts....plot development...characters (just enough for this 7+ hour listen)...wow! Good stuff, and all reasonably believable...enough so that I wasn't laughing out loud when the author didn't intend to be funny! :)

    So, Ms. Winters, you have a new fan. You've made my "buy everything list". Thank you, and I look forward to your next release!

    When Regina's friends insist on setting her up a "Fantasy Fix" to help her get over her cheating ex, she dreams up some kinky out-of-this-world encounters that they could never possibly bring to life. But the next thing Regina knows, her friends have got her laced into a shiny black corset, tight leather pants, and a sexy pair of stilettos. It's time for some downtown vampire-fantasy fun...

    Story

    OK, so clearly this series started a while ago.....and yet, I had not picked it up. That's the "bad" part. The good part is that I now have many great books to look forward to! More good news....the narrator is fantastic, with both male and female characters. How lucky am I?

    This series kicks off strongly with Dmitri and Reggie's story. The plot development is good, though it borders on too light with some of the characters that I know will have their own story later in the series. But, none of us want to listen to hours on end of background and set-up though either, so perhaps Ms. Warren played this smart. There has to be enough interaction to keep us turning the proverbial page.....right?

    Can't wait to hear more -- really....I just bought books two and three to keep my fix going. Thank you, Ms. Warren, for introducing me to your new world of OTHERS. The theme may be common (vampires, shifters, etc.), however, your writing is anything but! There are laugh out loud moments on practically every page! I feel like I'm friends with Regina, Ava, and the gang already!

    Nick Gentry is reputed to be the most skillful lover in all England. Known for solving delicate situations, he is hired to seek out Miss Charlotte Howard. He believes his mission will be easily accomplished – but that was before he met the lady in question. For instead of a willful female, he discovers one in desperate circumstances, hiding from a man who would destroy her very soul. So Nick shockingly offers her a very different kind of proposition – one he has never offered before.He asks her to be his bride.

    Story

    Its been a while since I read a true historical romance novel, and this book was very representative of the typical components. It was well written, and the narrator did a very good job with the text. However it was very predictable with a creepy old guy, and the recalcitrant heroine who wants everyone to like her just the same. Queue the hero with the tainted past who saves her.....and together they are restored to their well-deserved status within society.

    But still...... if this is your "cup of tea", and you're looking for a bit of mild escapism, then I'm sure you'll enjoy this story.

    Readers can “feel heat radiating off the pages” (Publishers Weekly) of New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Lori Foster’s steamy romances. Her work has even earned her a Romantic Times Career Achievement Award. The first in her compelling Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor series, When You Dare is sure to satisfy Foster’s loyal fans—and win her new ones.

    Story

    I really enjoyed this book, and will read/listen to more from Lori Foster. In most romance stories, the plot is completely secondary and usually pretty weak. Here, Ms. Foster was able to develop equal parts romance:thriller and they competed nicely. The narrator did a great job with the text, and was able to maintain the appropriate pace/rhythm so as not to distract. Well done!!!

    Where does Seduction of a Highland Lass rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I thoroughly enjoyed both the narrator and the story. I purchased and listed to the whole series and loved them all. With other purchases, there have been times when the choice of narrator detracted from the story....not true here. Well done!
