    Here in this peaceful community, folks look out for one another like family, though sometimes a little too well. In a town like this, it's hard to keep a secret - but Dr. June Hudson has managed to keep one heck of a humdinger…. Though visits from her secret lover, undercover DEA agent Jim Post, are as clandestine as they are passionate, somehow it fits with her demanding schedule as the town's doctor - a calling that requires an innate ability to exist on caffeine, sticky buns and nerves of steel.

    As usual Robyn Carr has written a great book. Therese Plummer did it justice. All in all, I recommend this for a warm heart felt book.

    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!!!!

    Elena MacFarland wonders what everyone else knows about her new farm that she doesn't, and whether she'll live long enough to find out. 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!!!

    Readers can “feel heat radiating off the pages” (Publishers Weekly) of New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Lori Foster’s steamy romances. Her work has even earned her a Romantic Times Career Achievement Award. The first in her compelling Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor series, When You Dare is sure to satisfy Foster’s loyal fans—and win her new ones.

    Story

    I love the Characters in this book! There's actually a plot and the way it's written pulls you into the story. Now, the Narrator, Jim Frangione, is perfect in this. He has a certain voice that pulls you. I really can't explain the draw he has in his voice. Just know I like to hear it especially when it comes to Alpha males. Great job. Audible, don't change Mr. Frangione as the narrator in Lori Foster books. That would really be a mistake.

    When Lady Johanna learned that she was a widow, she vowed she would never marry again. Only sixteen, already she possessed a strength of will that impressed all who looked past her golden-haired beauty. Yet when King John demanded that she remarry - and selected a bridegroom for her - it seemed she must acquiesce, until her beloved foster brother suggested she wed his friend, the handsome Scottish warrior Gabriel MacBain.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Sure would recommend this book. Narration was outstanding and so was the Scottish theme.


    What other book might you compare Saving Grace to and why?

    All the other Scottish Highlander books Julie Garwood wrote. Try any of them. If you love Scotland and Highlanders that is.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I love the way Ms. Garwood has strong yet understanding male characters which is found in all her books.


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

    Most definitely, YES!


    Any additional comments?

    I was sad. I laughed. I was totally taken by this book. The narrator was excellent. That makes the difference. Great Scottish and English accent.

    What made the experience of listening to Primal Law the most enjoyable?

    It's an Audible Listen, and that makes the difference! One thing I have to say over and over again, The Narrator can make or break a book. This time she made the book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story line was great and the Narrator was great. You have to have both for it to work.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Kira's first change as a wolf.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Jaxon's personality after he decided Kira was his for real.


    Any additional comments?

    The only way to have a great Audible book is to have the Author and Narrator on the same page.Kristen Potter is a great Narrator. Just perfect for this series. I have heard her before and let me tell you she is one of your best. Thanks Audible for another great series.

    Some small towns grow really good-looking men! This is the case with the four Chase brothers. The homegrown hotties are on the wish list of every single woman in town and Maggie Wright is no exception. Maggie has finally had it with the men she's been dating but a spilled plate of chili cheese fries drops Shane Chase right into her lap. The sheriff is hot stuff but was burned by a former fiancée and is quite happy to play the field. After Shane's skittishness sends him out the door, Maggie realizes that Kyle Chase has had his eye on her from the start.

    Would you listen to Giving Chase again? Why?

    Yes, think I would. Who wouldn't want Kyle Chase in their life? Even if through a book! WOW


    What other book might you compare Giving Chase to and why?

    I've listened to a lot of Romance Novels and try not to compare. The Chase Brothers are unique so there's no comparison.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Maggie and Kyle first met.


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

    Not really. I stopped and started. But, it was one I finished with a smile on my face. Have to love a happy ending. Of course life is not always like that but I do like my romance novels to end happily. That's why it's a book. The ending can be as the writer chooses not like real life.


    Any additional comments?

    Audible is a great way to listen to a book. The narrator is especially what make the book come to life. OK, Audible you need to offer your special credits. Would like to get some deals on here.

    Carlos Fuentes doesn't want any part of the life his older brother, Alex, has laid out for him in Boulder, Colorado.

Unfortunately, his ties to a Mexican gang aren't easy to break, and he soon finds himself being set up by a drug lord. When Alex arranges for Carlos to live with his former professor and his family to keep him from being sent to jail, Carlos feels completely out of place.
