    By edict of the king, the mighty Scottish laird Alec Kincaid must take an English bride. His choice was Jamie the feisty youngest daughter of Baron Jamison. Alec ached to touch her, to tame her, to possess her forever. But Jamie vowed never to surrender to this highland barbarian. Though his kisses fired her blood, shadowed secrets from Alec's past threatened Jamie's happiness. She brazenly resisted him - until one rapturous moment quelled their clash of wills.

    "Great Narrration"
    Overall

    I love all of Julie Garwood's historical romances, especially The Bride. I was very, very pleased by the narrator, Rosalyn Landor. She did a wonderful job with the Scottish accents and male voices. She definitely brought the story alive.

    Claire is too innocent to suspect that her marriage is a cruel farce, believing instead that the dangerous accidents that keep appearing in her path are just that - accidents. She wedded Justin Leroux suddenly and silently. He was the tall dark stranger of her girlhood dreams, and had finally come to take her away. She returns with him to Sans Songe, the Leroux family plantation in Louisiana. A near-fatal accident on the road to the plantation does not bode well for her future there.

    This was more a suspense/mystery story than a romance story. Narrator did an excellent job though!

At last, captured and captivated, Angeline can't resist Rolfe's masterful seduction, and the prince discovers the only woman he's ever encountered who can meet him passion for passion.

    Good story and pretty good narration. The narrator needs to practice her Scottish accent - hers sounded Jamaican and was often hard to understand.

    My sons and I have enjoyed yet another Rick Riordan book! We love Percy Jackson and weren't disappointed with this new book in the series.

    Now, as for the audio book, I can't say we love Joshua Swanson as much as the narrator of the first five books, but he does a pretty good job.

    For those with younger children, my 11 yo, who's listed to all the other books, did have some trouble understanding everything in this book because the plot gets even more complicated than the one before it.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book!! I was told about it back in January, but honestly didn't want to read about such a heavy subject. Finally after seeing it here at Audible and the rave reviews everyone gave it, I decided to give it a try. Oh, what a wonderful surprise. The narrators were beyond excellent, they really brought the book to life. Best use of a credit I ever made!

    It's 1825 in London, and the two curvaceous and blonde 23-year-old Cynster twins, Amanda and Ameliaare, are desperate to get married. All they need are two fine, strapping gentlemen - preferably with large purses.

    So what do these two lusty young ladies do?They make a visit to the local gaming halls, of course!

    Maisie Rubinstein says: "excellent"
    "Did not connect with heroine"

    I did not enjoy this book as much as I thought I would. Amanda is a spoiled, manipulative young lady and I found myself not liking her half way through the book.

    Enter the privileged world of English aristocrats and experience the passion, intrigue, and romantic pleasures of the incomparable Malorys - a family of dashing rogues, rakehell adventurers, and spirited ladies. Now Jeremy, the son of gentleman pirate James Malory, falls in love with Danny, a young woman who grew up on the streets of London.

    "Very enjoyable book to listen to!"
    Overall

    I was very pleased with the purchase of this book. I looked at this book description many times, hesitant to purchase, but was not disappointed at all. It was a good story line and the narrator did a great job bringing it to life. Many times I find myself wanting to fast forward with books, to get to better parts, but never did that at all with A Loving Scoundrel.

    After saving Olympus from the evil Titan lord, Kronos, Percy and friends have rebuilt their beloved Camp Half-Blood, where the next generation of demigods must now prepare for a chilling prophecy of their own.... In a brand-new series from blockbuster best-selling author Rick Riordan, fans return to the world of Camp Half-Blood. Here, a new group of heroes will inherit a quest. But to survive the journey, they'll need the help of some familiar demigods.

    Matthew says: "Great Book, The Narrator Was Alright"
    "Love of the series gets you past the narrator"
    Overall

    I am an adult who bought the Percy Jackson series for her children but enjoyed the books as much as they did. I adored the narrator of the first five books, but the narrator of this new book was a bit too flat. However, my affection for the "demi-god" world and characters from the original series kept me going and I still enjoyed the book.

    She's braved battlefields. She's stolen dispatches from under the noses of heads of state. She's played the worldly courtesan, the naive virgin, the refined British lady, even a Gypsy boy. But Annique Villiers, the elusive spy known as the Fox Cub, has finally met the one man she can't outwit... British spymaster Robert Grey must enter France and bring back the brilliant, beautiful - and dangerous - Fox Cub. His duty is to capture her and her secrets for England.

    Loved this book! Plot was more complicated and unique than most romance novels and the narrator was probably the best I've ever heard.

    There was no doubt about it. What Miss Harriet Pomeroy needed was a man. Someone powerful and clever who could help her rout the unscrupulous thieves who were using her beloved caves to hide their loot. But when Harriet summoned Gideon Westbrook Viscount St. Justin to her aid, she could not know that she was summoning the devil himself.

    Pamela says: "Characters voices a disappointment"
    "Nice Story"
    Overall

    I was pleased with the story in Ravished. You don't often find romances involving an independent, "older" - 25 LOL, less than gorgeous woman.

    I am not the biggest fan of Anne Flosnik, however, and am disappointed that so many of Amanda Quick's books are narrated by her. This is the second audio book narrated by her that I've listened to and in both books, she makes the main male character sound so haughty and pretentious.
