He was tender and emotional when called for and strong, even hilarious as the story dictated. He truly brought this story to life. I want to see this in all of his performances and will be listening. Excellent narrating Brian.

    The Baron’s Destiny
    By Elizabeth Rose
    Narrated by Brian J Gill
    What a Delight!
    Author Elizabeth Rose writes such a fun story. She pulls in lessons on loss, manipulation, courage, inner strength and love in this amazing and fun story. I found myself relating to Lady Isabel in many ways. And I loved her shoe addiction and definitely can relate to that. This story had me laughing out loud, then feeling strong emotions for Lady Isabel as she comes to the realization she is simply everyone’s puppet. Then we move into her acceptance of that and determination to change this and be her own person. I loved this story from the first word to the last. An absolute joy to read. I highly recommend it.

    This is one of my favorite stories in the Tangled Tales Series. Great play and tension between the hero and heroine. Author Elizabeth Rose has a magical imagination and pens a fun romance. I truly enjoyed the playful banter between Stephen and his squire. He’s the funniest, most unprofessional squire ever. You cannot help but love him and laugh at him. I also enjoyed the relationship and playfulness between the brothers, great teasing as brothers will do. All of this combined with a blooming romance made this book great fun.
    I highly recommend it.

    As the illegitimate daughter of a Scottish earl, Lady Magdalen Keith is not one to partake in lavish balls or other frivolities. Yet at her father's urging, she agrees to dance with the battle-weary officers at this year's holiday masquerade. It's practically her civic duty! But when one such officer - whose dashing good looks cannot be disguised by a mere mask - sweeps her off her feet and into his arms, the innocent lass can't help herself. Her lips are his for the taking.

    Author Amy Jarecki pens an wildly exciting and thrilling Highland romance. Set in the period of Queen Ann and Prince George’s in England, one gets a taste of the politics, backstabbing, and drama of the queen’s court. At a time of extreme prejudice toward Scots, and with Queen Anne’s fears of plots against her life, this author takes the reader through a thrilling story of intrigue, deception, innocence, and rejection.
    Lady Maggie lives her life ashamed by her illegitimate birth. When she arrives at the queen’s court to plead her father’s case of innocence, she endures rejection and humiliation.
    Reunited with the devilishly handsome Commander Aidan Murray, Maggie wonders if he remembers the time they spent together at the masked ball a year ago. When Aidan finally gets a moment alone with Maggie, he wraps his arms around her and reassures her how he feels—he thought about her constantly while at sea.
    As dangerous rumors about conspiracy against the crown threatens to destroy Maggie and her father, Aiden is forced to distance himself from Maggie for his own safety.
    Left to protect herself, Maggie’s life is in jeopardy. But once Aiden realizes Maggie means more to him than anything else, he stops at nothing to help her.
    This is a love conquers all story.
     
    Narration: Penelope Hardy performs this story quite well. She moves in and out of characters voices effortlessly, as she brings written word to life.

Penning a romantic tale with magic, witches, warlocks, shapeshifters and more enchanting characters from a mix of fairytales. This is a fast paced, exciting story you can’t put down. Captivated from the very first word until the last, I found this to be a fascinating, exciting story. Although this is book two in a series, it is perfect as a stand alone.

    When Akira Ayres finds the brawny Scot with a musket ball in his thigh, the healer has no qualms about doing whatever it takes to save his life. Even if it means fleeing with him across the Highlands to tend to his wounds while English redcoats are closing in. Though Akira is as fierce and brave as any of her clansmen, even she's intimidated by the fearsome, brutally handsome Highlander who refuses to reveal his name.

    The Highland Duke
    A Lord of the Highland Novel
    By Amy Jarecki
    Narrated by Penelope Hardy and Alex Hyde-White.


    Setting: Hoodmore, Scotland
    August, 1703. Near the village of Dunkeld, Scotland.

    Historical Background:
    "After Queen Anne had rejected the Scottish Parliament’s proposed Act of Security, the entire country was in an uproar—and ready to strike against the Government at last. Yes, he’d agreed to stand by his cousin and challenge the Government troops. The queen’s Act of Settlement was nothing but a sham, created to subvert the succession of the rightful Stuart line behind the guise of Protestantism."

    "Death on the battlefield," scanning the dark meadow, healer Akira finds one man alive covered in brush. Moaning with pain from a musket shot to his thigh, Highland Duke George Gordon, Aka Jordie, is grateful Akira found him. Akira reluctantly agrees to remove the musket ball from Jordie's thigh. As Akira tends to his wound, she becomes very aware of this hot blooded highlander and the thoughts he provokes in her mind and soul.
    There is nothing more powerful than your one true love.
    But even that kind of love faces challenges.
    Akira may be an excellent healer, but with gypsy blood running through her, Akira is a social outcast. Can a Duke, the very essence of high society, fall in love with an outcast of society?

    Can Jordie, a Duke of Royal blood over look Akira's gypsy roots, accept and love her family, when the world has declared them nothing more than tinkers?
    Travel through the majestic highlands and discover if love is powerful enough to overcome obstacles from every direction. Ms. Jarecki has a magical talent of blending non-fiction and fiction together in such a way, the reader learns more and more about Historical Scotland, while falling in love with her heroes and heroines. Weaving funny undertones and phrases such as beetle brain half wit, throughout the story, lending a lighthearted, playful touch here and there. But it doesn't take away the power of this story.Talk about a villain.... meet the self-centered, egotistical, Captain Weaver. He will definitely make you dislike him. I wanted to jump into the book and shoot him myself. Just another talent of Amy’s, to draw you into the story so deeply, you want to protect the hero and heroine yourself.
    Ms. Jarecki has such a beautiful writing style. The reader cannot help but be mesmerized and feel like they are taking each step of the journey with these characters. This author also leaves us with heart stirring contemplation on how we ourselves live our lives.
    I just loved everything about this story. A must read.

    Narrating:
    I really enjoyed listening to Penelope Hardy’s narration. She does a male character very well and puts great emotion into her performance of the story.

    This is my first book by author Michelle Willingham, but it definitely won't be my last. I am a fan. This book is brilliant, unique story line, well written and romantic. I loved it. I hope she puts the entire series on audiobook, because you don't want to put this book down.

    Brad Wills delivers an outstanding performance. That is the difference between Mr. Wills and other narrators. Mr. Wills truly performs the books he narrates. He is creative with character voices, delivers the story with passion and care. I say care, because he really is intuitive as to the sensitivity of the storyline. Outstanding Brad Wills. Loved it.

    Narrator Carrington Macduffie turned out to be a pleasant surprise for me. There are very few female narrators I view as excellent. I have just added Ms. Macduffie to that list. She can perform a wide range of character voices and make men sound like men, sexy men at that. Performed with great emotion. I was impressed by this author and narrator.
