    On a quest to avenge her sister's death, Eleanor Watkins never expected to fall for the man following her through pleasure gardens and into ballrooms. But soon nothing can keep her from the arms of the sinfully attractive scoundrel, not even the dangerous secrets she keeps. Strong, compassionate, and utterly irresistible, James is all she desires. But can she trust him enough to let herself succumb to all the pleasures that midnight allows?

    This story was good however, Book 3 is my favorite. I truly love the "scoundrels" and truly would love to read MORE. The narration is excellent. If only Susan Ericksen could narrate all Lorraine Health's books.

    Loved it.

    Newly divorced Alison Kerby wants a second chance for herself and her nine-year-old daughter. She's returned to her hometown on the Jersey Shore to transform a Victorian fixer-upper into a charming-and profitable guest house. One small problem: the house is haunted, and the two ghosts insist Alison must find out who killed them.

    This is a "make you chuckle" read. I didn't give it a five because some sections were slow. However the characters are fun and interesting even though somewhat cliche. I hope to see the writing evolve with each book. I enjoyed the story and am definitely going to download the next book.

    When Supernatural Investigation Bureau agent Bluebell Kildare (a.k.a. Blue) arrives at the scene of the crime, it's obvious the grotesquely damaged body of the deceased teenage boy was caused by far more than a simple hit and run; and she vows to catch the killer. Using her innate sixth sense, Blue uncovers a powerful magical artifact nearby. She soon discovers it acts as a key to an ancient Grimoire that was instrumental in the creation of the Vampire breed and still holds the power to unravel the boundaries between Earth and the Plane of Fire.

    This book was difficult to listen to. The narrator sounded as if she was reading and paused in places that she shouldn't have.

    You know that your mind influences your health-but what's influencing your mind? Unless you answer this question, teaches Dr. Mario Martinez, you may be missing a key component on the journey to health and personal excellence. On The Mind-Body Code, the founder of Biocognitive Theory presents his first audio curriculum about the dynamic interplay between our thoughts, our bodies and our cultural history-and how to unlock this powerful doorway to wellness and fulfillment.

    Story

    This book is not only informative, it is enlightening. We are so trapped by our cultural believes that we fall asleep, forgetting that we have a choice to be happy, healthier and free from societal dictations. This is not a spiritual journey but a scientific one from a man who has studied other cultures and what makes people healthy and/or sick.

    This series only gets better and better. I absolutely love the characters, the way the author describes the characters and the story. Kristine Hyam is an excellent narrator and I must say, actress. She knows how to do dialect and character voices.

    I give this book my top rating. It was enjoyable to again, enjoy an audio book from beginning to end.

    Helene Wecker's dazzling debut novel tells the story of two supernatural creatures who appear mysteriously in 1899 New York. Chava is a golem, a creature made of clay, brought to life by a strange man who dabbles in dark Kabbalistic magic. When her master dies at sea on the voyage from Poland, she is unmoored and adrift as the ship arrives in New York Harbor. Ahmad is a jinni, a being of fire, born in the ancient Syrian Desert. Trapped in an old copper flask by a Bedouin wizard centuries ago, he is released accidentally by a tinsmith in a Lower Manhattan shop.

    I could barely put this audio book down. I love Helene Wecker's writing and imagination. Wow! I believe she's right up there with Brian Sanderson and yes, MIchael J. Sullivan. Did I mention how much I loved this book? Yes, I guess I did. If you love fantasy and are looking for something different with a rich characters and a great storyline, this is it.

    When college student Olivia Townsend returned home to help her father run his business, she never imagined a complication like Cash and Nash Davenport - twin brothers different in so many ways but with one thing in common: an uncontrollable desire for Olivia. Cash is dangerous, sexy, and bad to the bone - a man whose kisses make Olivia forget she is playing with fire. Nash is successful, reliable, and intensely passionate - and already taken. But all it takes is one soft stroke to make Olivia forget he belongs to someone else. However, Olivia is in for a surprise....

    Story

    It's not that the narrators were bad, it's just that the choices of whoever directed this audio book I beliee, made not so good production decisions. Imagine the voice of a young, early twenties character in the book sounding like an older, seasoned actor over fifty. It doesn't mean the narrator has to be old but at least they can sound younger. Also think of a book narrated in first person by each actor playing their role, male and female. Then when the narration turns to the woman's point of view, that same woman narrates the male character, you know the one in his early twenties who sounds over fifty, in a lower octive voice. If this sounds confusing, so was the narration and performance.

    A note to the author, please make sure you listen to who narrates your book. It truly makes a difference. Because of the confusing narration in two, make that three voices, I couldn't finish what was probably a good book. Maybe, I"ll read it, maybe.

    I absolutely love Michael J. Sullivan's writing. Tim Gerard Reynold's narration is perfect. He's is talented with the ability to make you hear each character's personality be them man or woman. I love the thieves and hope to hear another book from Michael J. Sullivan again. He is my favorite fantasy author. Thank you, Audible. I got the first sample of his writing through one of your Daily Deals and from there, kept buying.
