    Lori Foster’s steamy romances have earned her a place on the New York Times and USA Today best-seller lists. Trace of Fever stars Trace Rivers, a private mercenary looking for vengeance after his sister’s kidnapping. Trace has targeted human trafficker Murray Coburn as the man responsible, but his plans for payback get complicated when Coburn’s beautiful daughter turns up.

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

    YES


    What did you like best about this story?

    Priscilla and Trace and their funny bantor.


    What about Jim Frangione’s performance did you like?

    His story telling ability and his wonderful manly voice. So many times they have a woman narrating a man's voice and it just creeps me out.

    Best one yet...laughed through the entire book at Priscilla.

    Brilliant and ambitious dressmaker Marcelline Noirotis London's rising star. And who better to benefit from her talent than the worst-dressed lady in the ton, the Duke of Clevedon's intended bride? Winning the future duchess' patronage means prestige and fortune for Marcelline and her sisters. To get to the lady, though, Marcelline must win over Clevedon, whose standards are as high as his morals are...not. The prize seems well worth the risk-but this time Marcelline's met her match.

    Sir Artan Murray was right when he decided that the dying old man who bid him collect his niece didn't know her at all. The furious woman facing him is neither "sweet" nor "biddable." She demands the brawny Highlander return her to the wedding party from which he took her. But Artan has no intention of allowing so spirited and bewitching a creature to endure a loveless marriage to a ruthless lord for her clan's sake. He aims to woo the lass and to show her that true love also yields unforgettable pleasure.Cecily Donaldson knows a bond forged by danger and desperation cannot endure.

    The story was drawn out...not sure if it was the narrator's reading of the story or the writing...but I thought it would never end. I would have liked a lot more "niceness" and less "battling" between the characters. I just did not relate and I think it was because of the narration...not good at all.

    I almost passed this book up...so glad I didn't. I loved the characters and the story. The narrator was excellent. A man should always narrate a highlander book...there are maybe one or two women that can do male voices that sound strong enough to be burly men. Jim McCabe was very good with different voices and he didn't race through the love scenes like he was calling a horse race!! Loved it and the reading...

    The Highlands of Scotland, Autumn 1344..... She had won his heart without trying... and he can only pray for the chance to give her his. When Findley McKenna returns after his battle with the English to offer Maggy Boyle a home amongst his clan, he finds only death and destruction instead of the young widow who has stolen his heart. The only things left of her home is the burned out hut and decaying bodies of the auld people Maggy has taken care of for the past three years. With only a prayer, his Highlander heart, and a bit of bloodied plaid to cling to, Findley will crawl through hell if he must, in order to find Maggy and her sons and avenge the massacre before him.

    With her brother wrongfully accused of embezzling millions, Kerry Sullivan can't face one more humiliating hang-up from the man she's begging for help. Rafael Dawson may be one of the top electronic security experts in the country - and the only man who can prove her brother's innocence - but his phone manners are appalling. Too bad kidnapping the man isn't an option. Or is it? There's nothing Kerry wouldn't do for her brother, and there are lots of things she longs to do to Rafe Dawson when he's lying tied-up and naked in her secret hideaway.

    I didn't know that Shayla Black also writes under the name of Shelley Bradley...why do some authors do that??? I did not feel like I was listening to Shayla Black's writing through the entire book... perhaps she knew this was not her best work. I read on another reviewers comments regarding the metaphors .... boy was she correct!! They were to a distraction! Just did not feel this story to be believable in any way what so ever!! Sorry Shayla or Shelley....hope the next book is better.

    Interior decorator Suzanne Barron's new tenant is the most dangerously sexy man she's ever met. Navy Commander John Huntington, a former SEAL (aka 'Midnight Man') works best under cover of darkness. Within hours of meeting him, Suzanne has wild, no-holds barred sex with John, then panics at the depth of her passionate response to such a powerful and dangerous warrior. Suzanne doesn't do sex like that. John is definitely someone she needs to avoid for her own peace of mind. But when killers come for her, Suzanne knows she can turn to only one man.

    that was probably the best highlander book I have listened to in a very long time. The narration was excellent...the story was well written and not the usual...arranged marriage scenario. I laughed several times out loud at the banter between the H/H. The female lead was a strong personality and that made for a very interesting story. I would definitely listen to this book again and can't wait for the next one...please please please!!!

He tries to help her — in his overbearing, arrogant way — and winds up flat on his back. God’s blood, who is this woman…and why does she captivate him so?

    It felt like I had heard it before. It was very very similar to the series by Karen Marie Moning. Perhaps they are connected in some way, but, the only thing different was the narrator for this book was not as good as Phil Gigante, who narrated the Karen Marie Moning series. That being said, it did hold my interest and I love any Scottish Romance book I can get me hands on!!

    Raised on the debauched margins of society, Amelia Taylor depends upon her quick wit and fiery spirit to survive. When danger closes in on her already precarious home, she flees into the Highlands and finds refuge in the iron-strong circle of Clan Mackenzie. There, her lack of propriety and intriguing beauty draw the attentions of their formidable leader. But to remain safe from pursuit, she must conceal her identity, even if it means deceiving Laird Knox Mackenzie.
