    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fury of Fire?

    The Dragons changing and then the battles. Wow! Not to mention the bonding.

    I would listen to this book in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    Coreene Callahan and Benjamin L. Darcie brought this book to life. I have the second book. Now, Audible.com, where is the 3rd book. I'm waiting! Think you for such a great book.

    For four years, Grace Sullivan wrote to a Marine she never met, and fell in love. But when his deployment ended, so did the letters. Ever since that day, Grace has been coasting, academically and emotionally. The one thing she's decided? No way is Noah Jackson - or any man - ever going to break her heart again.

    Now, down to business. If Phil Gigante is narrating a book you can bet it's a good one. After hearing him in the Dark Series all I can say is WOW! I'm in love with his voice. This book was much better than the second one. Although the second one was good. Hats off to having the right narrator.

Then a kilted man magically drops into her arms, looking for a guide to the twenty-first century, and she can’t deny the attraction. But magical treachery soon throws open time’s portal once more - and puts a blade to Robley's throat.

    Story

    The story line was good. The narrator was good but not great. The narrator is a good one but I think the general story may need more depth for me. If you like a light hearted story then this is for you. I did keep listening and enjoyed the story. The main characters just didn't seem to have the spark I thought they should have. I have the third book in the series and plan to listen. Hope it is better than this one.

I can't wait. If you are looking for a book with romance, action, and a great narrator then this is the book. Just get it.

    I think the only thing that saved this one was the Narrator, Paul Woodson. The story was so predictable. Think I could have written this one. In fact, if this story line is it, I could become a writer, make some money, and have a seller. Wow! Just joking. The story was so standard. I became bored with it and just gave up. Don't get me wrong, I love a great Highlander Romance.

    As a lovely heiress, Roderica Delamore should be a prize catch--except for her shameful secret. She has the ability to hear the thoughts of those around her. Even her family and close friends can't hide from her strange gift. Knowing that she can never marry, for no man could bear it, Roddy still longs hopelessly for a family of her own. Until she meets the man she's been waiting for--the Earl of Iveragh, a mysterious Irish aristocrat whose thoughts are entirely closed to her.

    After moving to Austin following six months of unemployment back home, Iris Taylor knows she should be glad to have landed a job so quickly... even if the business is owned by a member of the same motorcycle club her estranged father used to belong to. Except Dex Locke might just be the biggest jerk she's ever met. He's rude and impatient, and he doesn't know how to tell time. And the last thing they ever expected was each other.

    What is not to like about this book. It has all the right components. Dex and Iris are the couple! Loved the way the they grew in their relationship. Now, this is a long book. Let me tell you, in no way did it seem long. I actually hated for it to end. The narrator was spot. Love listening to her. Great job. Only one problem. Audible only has one book of Ms. Zapata. Come on Audible, let us have more!!!!! Please!!!!

Betrayed by her fiancé and the powerful Worthington family, Elena fights back and negotiates a comfortable settlement with one small caveat: she must live in Scotland for two years. One kidnapping and two attempts on her life later, the darkly arrogant Scot, Faolan MacGailtry declares himself her new protector and moves into her farmhouse. Major problem?

    Very few times have I ever written a bad review. This may even be my first! But, please! At first I told myself I would listen and I tried. Narration was bad and the story was bad. I kept asking myself, what? Where was the story going? Oh yeah, that's right. The story just went on and on and my interest kept going and going to fade. I finally FF and then give up. Now, with that being said, you may enjoy, love this series. But for me, NOT!!!
