    Aislinn Andrews met Lucas Greywolf under unusual circumstances – she caught the escaped convict raiding her refrigerator. But was he a troublemaker who aroused dissidence among Arizona’s Native Americans…or a hero who’d gone to prison for a crime he hadn’t committed? It didn’t really matter now, since Lucas Greywolf had taken her hostage. He was going home to the reservation of his birth, honor bound to pay last respects to his dying grandfather. And Aislinn was his ticket home.

    Okay, so it's a stretch to think anyone would end up in love with a man who dominates and kidnaps you, but of course, this is a book. Make believe. I loved it!! All of it. The narrator is excellent and Ms. Raudman hasn't done any reading that I didn't enjoy.
    Honor Bound was enjoyable and I listened through to the end without pause.

    After a night of raw passion with the man Claire O'Briene had been secretly admiring for years, she thought their time together had come once and for all. Fate had finally brought them back to each other, but unfortunately nothing had changed. He was still the same man who ran away from relationships. Against his better judgment, Mason Bradley gave in to the temptation and allowed himself one night with the one woman he'd been too afraid to want - and too afraid to need.

    After reading all the other reviews I was excited to listen to this book; but I just couldn't get in to it :-( Most disappointing (to me) was the narration. And perhaps had it be presented with a different reader, I might have like it better.
    Another thing about this book I just couldn't get passed was the way the heroine was so easily able to move from one man to another with such ease. Very disappointing.

    Millionaire business owner, Campbell Lee St. Martin had grown bored of vanilla sex. It's not that he desired BDSM, but a little lust and aggression would be nice. He always played by the rules, following his head not his heart, but when that backfires not once, but twice, changes are in store for this Mr. Play It Safe. Now he is on the prowl for great passion. When he finds it, he will stop at nothing to keep it.

    The opportunity was just too damn delicious for Ginger Peet to pass up. The purse full of money she finds - $50,000 to be exact - could give her and her teen sister the new start they need. So she grabs the cash, her gothy sibling, and their life-sized statue of Dolly Parton, and blows outta Nashville in a cloud of dust. Chicago, here we come...

    If the audio was bad (sound track problems) they aren't any longer.
    This was one of those series that I just can't enough of. I know there's one more book in this series His to Claim, but I'm not sure of it's being made into an audio book.
    These are the feel good type of listens, with romance, suspense, humor, and amours (in other words HOT) scenes.
    I liked them because there is a pleasant story line to each of them. Nicely that each is different than the other as well.
    I would definitely recommend all four of these books.

    FBI agent Tyler Reed trusts only facts and evidence, until the day a beautiful blonde delivers a life-saving warning...based on nothing more than a vision. Five years later, the mysterious Morgan Standish has used her talents to help Tyler and the FBI bring down countless criminals. Still, Tyler knows next to nothing about her. She contacts him by phone - and by some sort of psychic connection he's not prepared to admit exists - but has not shown herself once. Until now.

    Story

    This series is one of those "feel good" type where all are part of one big happy family. Everyone's not just rich, but wealthy and of course the men and women are the most profoundly beautiful that anyone has ever seen. They are immensely loyal to one another and to be part of their circle means you'll have an abundance of Love. This series added an element of fantasy, which I did enjoy (mostly in book 4). It's also a series where the men take the lead role in wanting to find that one true love. Added to that is suspense. Each one in this series of four kept my interest and I did want to listen to them one after the other. The main reason was because of the suspense that was created in each of these books.
    .
    For an easy, comfortable listen, I don't believe you could go wrong in using a credit for any one of these or all of them.

    Liv Michaels is almost there. She's smart, determined and weeks away from landing the job she's dreamed about for years. Time healed old wounds, even her broken heart from the devastation of being crushed by her first love. Vince "The Invincible" Stone is every woman's fantasy...strong, sexy, confident, and completely in control. Growing up surrounded by chaos, he's learned never to get too attached. Love will drag you down. He adores women, treats them well, puts their own needs before his own...for the night anyway.

    This was one that I returned! I was so disappointed in this. The story line was one I was actually anticipating, but when an author writes as though they are an observer and not a participant in the story they've written, I am left completely unmoved. I like the goose bumplies and the sighs alongwith the honest sounds of enjoyment in a love scene. This author/narrator gave none of that. It may as well have read~~~"She Jane run." Hopefully, away for using a credit on this book.

    This book is a Romance, truly. I loved that it didn't have the ridiculous banter that can go on in some romance novels where the male and female leads do one another's thinking for them.
    The secondary characters are well developed.
    This book touches the heart in many ways and I'm so pleased that I found it today and got to hear it! I hadn't heard anything from Kelsie Leverich before, but I will certainly listen now.
    Yes! It's worth the credit.

    I honestly do NOT understand why an author would write a story that is so short. I enjoy the story line with the earth slowly dying and there being different breeds on the earth, it's quite interesting.
    This is a new story line and I felt like it needed to be more in depth, giving more back ground as to how Earth got to the point of nearly dying.
    The characters a done well, but there does need to be more depth in their development as well.
    I hope the author expounds more on future books.

    Five dishonored soldiers. Former Special Forces. One last mission. These are the men of Hard Ink. Ever since hard-bodied, drop-dead-charming Shane McCallan strolled into the dance club where Crystal Dean works, he's shown a knack for getting beneath her defenses. For her little sister's sake, Crystal can't get too close. Until her job and Shane's mission intersect, and he reveals talents that go deeper than she could have guessed. Shane would never turn his back on a friend in need, especially a former Special Forces teammate running a dangerous, off-the-books operation.

    I enjoyed everything about this book. The story line, the narration, the content of each incident and character was so very well done. I also enjoy how the first book of this series and it's events carry on in the following books. All of it making perfect sense and the comradory of the male characters is touching.
    It's a true romance and I found the interactions between Shane and Sara to be very beautifully done.
    I look forward to buying the next book in this series.

    As the daughter of a famed author, Isolde Ophelia Goodnight grew up on tales of brave knights and fair maidens. She never doubted romance would be in her future, too. The storybooks offered endless possibilities. And as she grew older, Izzy crossed them off. One by one by one....Now Izzy's given up yearning for romance. She'll settle for a roof over her head. What fairy tales are left over for an impoverished 26-year-old woman who's never even been kissed?
