    An unlikely state of affairs. For Navy SEAL Lucky O'Donlon was the original love-'em-and-leave-'em guy. Used to women swooning at his feet. So how could it be that the frustratingly attractive journalist Sydney Jameson had nothing to offer him but one very cold shoulder? Well, two could play at this game. But first things first - he and Sydney had a job to do. They had to get their man. Then there would be time enough for him to get his woman.

    This was everything you might want in a romantic fiction work - well written, good narration and an interesting story line. I totally enjoyed it. Lucky, who initially seemed a bit shallow, ended up being a solidly likable character. Just enough suspense to keep you guessing!

    Stephanie Laurens' hot-blooded romances, including her New York Times best-selling Bar Cynster series, have earned her legions of loyal devotees. The beginning of an exciting new saga, The Lady Chosen introduces the distinguished war veterans of the Bastion Club, single gentlemen not entirely committed to staying that way.

    I enjoyed this book, as I do most of Ms Laurens. I don't understand the disparagement of Jill Tanner. I personally liked her narration and did not think it detracted from the story at all. The Bastion Club series is a different twist on the typical Regency novels. I recommend them and Jill Tanner.

Are the culprits fanatics determined to create chaos and usher in annihilation?

    Foe Elizabeth Lowell fans, we all know she can spin a good one. The excellent research that went into this novel was obvious - her stories are typically learning experiences as well as fascinating. Good narration and just a very satisfying novel to while away a long car trip. Definitely recommend!

    Everyone thinks A.J. Sutherland is crazy to buy a rogue stallion that no rider or trainer has been able to tame. But if anybody has the hustle to make something out of that hell-raiser, it’s her. She can’t do it alone, however, and goes after the great Devlin McCloud, an equestrian legend with a bad leg - and a worse attitude.

But to save his castle and his clan, he must persuade her to assist him - and he's prepared to offer marriage to seal the deal!

    Story

    For sheer entertainment value, this novel was a winner. After the the other two in the series, you had to wonder how it was going to end and what would be come of the Laird. Now we know.

    Nice job of narrating overall (even though I admit to missing Simon Prebble's voice in this Stephanie Lauren's novel) and I enjoyed it immensely. No, it's not complicated nor should any of this be taken too seriously. It is what it is - entertaining listening as you go down the road.

    I wonder what her next series is going to be about?

    In a moment of recklessness, Gervase Tregarth, sixth Earl of Crowhurst, swears he’ll marry the next eligible lady to cross his path. Cloistered at his ancestral castle in Cornwall, with nary a suitable woman for miles, he never expects he’ll have to fulfill his pledge, at least not until the London season begins. But then he meets his neighbor, the very appealing Madeline Gascoigne.

    Years of secret service to the Crown have taught Gervase the value of always having a loophole - there will be no wedding if he and Madeline are not compatible in every way.

    While I admit to missing the voice of Simon Prebble, I thought the narrator was okay. I did not find that his voice detracted from the story significantly. The story was a bit slow getting started, and while this was not my favorite of the series, I did enjoy it. Worth it? Yes.

    Story

    This was a great story and I thoroughly enjoyed the characters, the story line and the narrator. There was enough suspense and danger to keep the story moving along and enough interplay between the characters to make it all interesting. The "Admiral" was introduced in several of her earlier novels so it had helped that I had read this one farther along in the series.
    As I travel a great deal in my job, I have enjoyed the Navy Seal series and heartily recommend the novels of this author.

She’s supported her ex-husband’s dreams for so long that she can’t even remember her own... until she sees a for-lease sign near her parents’ home and envisions her very own cooking store. Her crash course in business is aided by a streetwise store manager and Jenna’s adoptive mother.

    Dana Birch vowed never to put herself at the mercy of a powerful man. She became a deputy so that she could take care of herself, and protect those she loved. Especially her best friends, the Titan sisters. Twenty years ago, Garth Duncan swore revenge on Jed Titan for abandoning Garth and his mother. Now he's back to fulfill that promise, even if Jed's daughters get caught in the crosshairs. All that stands between him and his goal is Dana, her gun, and a growing passion that can't be denied.

    Where does Hot on Her Heels rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Good overall entertainment.


    What three words best describe Natalie Ross’s performance?

    Good but the narration was inconsistent in tone and volume. The men's voices were so low in volume and pitch, I often had to try to adjust my radio to hear them at all. It was very frustrating - it went from loud to very soft.

    What about Therese Plummer’s performance did you like?

    The narrator does an excellent job and made the work easy listening.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Because I listened to this book over a few days of travel, I can't really imagine listening to it all at one time. I like chocolate too - but small bites are often the best.
