    I liked the story, but I almost got sick a few times from the descriptions... evidently, the author is very good at making the reader visualize with his descriptions.

    Taryn Warner is a wolf shifter with extraordinary healing skills - and serious problems. First, her father is determined that she mate for life with a wolf shifter named Roscoe Weston, whom the feisty Taryn can’t stand. To make matters worse, she’s also been kidnapped by Trey Coleman, a dangerous alpha male from another pack. And as much as she wants to resist Trey, Taryn is incredibly, maddeningly attracted to him.

    What was most disappointing about Suzanne Wright’s story?

    This should be in a category titled "Violent Pornography". Romance isn't vulgar, graphic, rough sex scenes. The theme seemed to be "I'm raping you because you like it, even if you are screaming and calling me obscene names." I could be wrong because I have never studied wolves, but I'm pretty sure that they don't repeatedly bite and scratch up their mates.


    Any additional comments?

    I will not purchase books by this author in future.

    Samuel Charles Aubrey St. Aldwyn, Duke of Gravenhurst, is a radical rogue and champion of unpopular causes. No one would dream that he is also the author of a bestselling series of dark historical novels, a writer accused of corrupting the morals of the public, and a master seducer who counts among his passionate fans wellborn Miss Lily Boscastle. But Lily is no stranger to disrepute....

    Would you try another book from Jillian Hunter and/or Justine Eyre?

    Maybe


    Would you recommend A Duke's Temptation to your friends? Why or why not?

    No. The story was kind of disjointed with pieces that didn't even seem to be part of the story.


    Could you see A Duke's Temptation being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No.

    Would you listen to The Present again? Why?

    Yes.


    What other book might you compare The Present to and why?

    Other Malory series novels by the same author.


    Any additional comments?

    The voices the narator uses for the male characters, especially Anthony, grates on me... he sounds like a pirate. I also do not care for her 'chuckles' or laughter.

    About three things I was certain. First, Edward was a vampire. Second, there was a part of him, and I didn't know how dominant that part might be, that thirsted for my blood. And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.

    Mitch says: "My Not-So-Guilty Pleasure"

    One of my friends, who does not consider herself a reader, bought this book after watching the movie. She got hooked immediately and is now on the 4th book of the series.

    Fleeing a lurid scandal, matchmaker Celinda Ingram arrived in Cadence City desperate for a new start. Known for her strong para-resonator abilities, she is able to match up clients by reading their psi waves. It's this talent that sets her body tingling when security specialist Davis Oakes shows up at her office. A formidable psychic himself, Davis is trying to track down a powerful relic that Celinda supposedly bought as a toy for her pet dust bunny.

    Teresa says: "The Curtian has close."

    I am hooked on the Harmony series by Jayne Castle. I love the dust bunnies! A nice romance on a fantasy planet.

    The first book in this enthralling new series by Angie Sage leads readers on a fantastic journey filled with quirky characters and magykal charms, potions, and spells. Magyk is an original story of lost and rediscovered identities, rich with humor and heart.

    I loved the book. Imaginative and easy to follow. I am buying the sequels.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: An all-time Audible favorite that mixes historic fiction, adventure, and romance with one of the most fascinating literary devices: time travel. Outlander introduces an exhilarating world of heroism and breathtaking thrills as one woman is torn between past and present, passion and love. In 1945, former combat nurse Claire Randall returns from World War II and joins her husband for a second honeymoon. But their blissful reunion is shattered....

    Lulu says: "The Reason for the Existence of Audio Books"
    "Good book, but long"
    Overall

    I loved the book and considered listening to more by this author...the only problem I had was with how long it is.

Millions of fish are dying off the coast of Hawaii and someone - or something - is destroying hundreds of ships. Unable to discover the cause, the government enlists the Flock to help them get to the bottom of the disaster before it is too late.

    The saga continues with Max and the flock dealing with more environmental issues. Entertaining and fun.

    Fourteen-year-old Maximum Ride and the other members of "Flock" - Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gasman, and Angel - are just like ordinary kids - only they have wings and can fly. It seems like a dream come true - except that they're still being hunted by new threats at every turn.

    Cheryl says: "Disapointing."
    "Cute"
    Overall

    Another episode in Max's life...another adventure. Cute, easy to follow. And informative about environmental issues.
