Patricia Briggs, Jim Butcher, Rachel Caine, Caren Chance, PN Elrod, Charlaine Harris....et al. did a fine job of mixing up stories. (No Sookie from Charlaine, but I liked it). Anthologies offer a person a chance to hear new authors, and old authors writing different styles. I enjoyed 90% of this and I do with most para normal anthologies. Don't expect the same old thing and allow yourself to enjoy.
I can say what I didn't love, this was supposed to be a "TRILOGY" now it's an EPIC like the WHEEL OF TIME.........I only got up to book 11 in the Wheel series because it was just too much. Even after the author Robert Jordon passed away they are still writing more Wheel of Time...... Peter V. Brett please give your readers an idea of when this series will end. Very unfair to do a bait and switch. So many Trilogy's have turned into on going epics that I just can't bother. There are some where each book can be taken individually, and that's ok but like in this one it's like some one just said ok "the end" With another hour could have at least had a little closure until next book which will be another year I'm sure.
Horrible, it was the worst way to end a book leaving reader hanging, and knowing the way Mr Brett writes it will be at least a year or more before the next book is out.
No but if it wasn't for him I don't think I could have gotten past the first part of the book he really is good at emotions and voices
Brett don't do this to your readers. You can't chop off the book and say the end where so many issues are up in the air. You didn't do it in the first two books, why this one. Also why did you go from trilogy to on going epic.......Ugh.
There is a great amount of love between wife and husband. Even-though she is dominant and he is submissive, they know that they need each other and enjoy each others bodies. They have similar interests and enjoy other things outside of the sexual. However it is very clear that he is submissive to her at all time. That is the way he wants to live his life and she wants to take on the responsibility of controlling the relationship.
The fact that even with the severe pain inflicted on Jes, it's one of the things he loves about his wife and it makes him love her more. That she gets great pleasure from doing it, and the passion they share for each other is very strong. They want only each other. It is very obvious in what each of them think about.
I'm not sure, she did a very good job and it was a very different kind of story of a showing that there is love between dominant and submissive.
Yes, The part were, near the end when this woman who is trying to black mail Jes, goes to Angie's office to tell her off. It's too funny (it's near the end)
I think there was an editing problem that in a few sections sentences were repeated. But it wasn't a big deal. and it didn't really detract from the story. If you're into female dominance,and want to see a different type. check it. out I thought it was really done well.
Intense character development, and the fact that Rachel seems to have matured and knows who she is and accepts the good and the bad with that. The fact that Rachel and Trent seem to be working together to make things better. Learning to trust.
We learn a lot about characters especially Al, and how he really feels, though he can't express it in words that most would like to hear.
There were many, because there are characters who have been in the series for a while who will be lost to us. They were not my favorite but, very moving
I would end up spoiling but just know that even Al has feeling and it shows in this story. Not all Daemons are equal.
This was one of Kim Harrison's best in this series. There will be another, because it was just left that way at the end that there will be more. Marguerite Gavin, has be awesome at narrating this series. The voices of each character both male and female. Also putting the emotions in each. There was a lot of sub stories in this book, but the bottom line is that Rachel and Trent learned to trust each other. Big step.
One of the Hottest erotic novels. About 5 men in their 50's through late 60's who want a young woman to share. Elliot is the go to man, and he gets young college woman who's dating one of his employees. (who doesn't mind that his girl friend is doing this) These men grew up in a time just before the sexual revolution so they are really clueless about a young woman's behavior in the21st century. Eva is a really hot number and uninhibited. She's a flirt and she's shameless. She makes these men feel wonderful.
I think Eva's fashion show strip tease was really hot. There were other moments but the descriptions and reactions of the men were great. STEAMING.
I've heard Mira Noire, butnot Peter Rawn Klein. She is always wonderful in erotic stories. Very expressive with no holds bard.
Yes I did get turned on by some of the descriptions and reactions of the characters. It was a very different kind of erotic story. This is not romance it is sexual erotica, and there are things in here that can be distasteful to some. If you're not turned off by well written erotica. then give it a try I don't think you'll be disappointed.
This was one of the best erotic novels I've listened to on Audible. "Bonds of Trust" and "Bonds of Need" part of a series by Lynda Aicher about the BD/SM community is hot and also very well done told from different angles.
It was not what I was expecting from Diana Gabaldon, It had the horror paranormal quirkiness. If You're not into zombies, and para-normal you won't like this story. I have enjoyed all of the "Highlander" and "Lord John" series....This is just very different and has is not for everyone who likes Ms Gabaldon's books
It showed that Ms Gabaldon can stretch her writing to go to the bizarre. I found it really interesting, also how Lord John handled himself under very stressful situations.
I think he did the narration very well the accents of the Jamaicans, British, and Scots were done very well. He was also able to express emotion in his voice which is important.
I enjoyed it because I enjoy paranormal, horror, vampire, zombie, werewolf, etc type stories. I love Jim Butcher, Simon Green, C. Harris, etc. great writers of paranormal fantasy.
If you're looking for the dashing romantic Lord John he's still the man but in a very difficult circumstance, and there is sexual innuendo, but not the romantic trysts of other stories. He has a mission to get a problem solved in Jamaica. Solve a murder, and get his soldiers back, from a group who they think are making zombies. There is a twist here and the ultimate bottom line is the British were the ones doing wrong. If you don't like para-normal stay away from this one. otherwise give it a try.
Great collection of erotic and humorous lesbian erotic stories. The narrations were very good as well. Some were really HOT. Even most men would get turned on from these stories.
None, this is about Lesbian Cowboys, I've never ever heard of any other book like this
Many of the narrators were excellent and did the voices and the expressions of emotions really well. There were maybe 2 that I really didn't care for but it didn't interfere with the story.
Some turned me on, or taught me a moral lesson about how things were years ago for lesbians. There was one story that made me laugh out loud "Fancy Pants" I won't tell.
One of the best anthologies of the lesbian genre. I usually enjoy straight erotica, but a friend told me to try this one and I was really pleased.
Very much so. If you have listened to or read the SPQR series by John Maddox Roberts and enjoyed you will enjoy this as well. This is more centered around a Roman Doctor Russo who was stationed in Briton. Ends up solving crimes for the empire. He also marries a "Barbarian" Briton woman, but she's really the best thing in his life and he knows it. You have to read this series in order just like any other series or it will not make sense.
I really love both Russo and his wife Tilla. In many ways she makes Russo more earthy and realize what is really important.
Simon Vance is one of my favorite narrators, when I'm looking at a new book I see who's narrating and since he's in my top ten I usually will take great interest in purchasing. He brings emotions and each character to life.
I think Ruth Downie is has done very well in this series and her research about Rome in
Briton is also very good. If you want to read great novels by great authors on the Roman Empire the three top are Robert Graves, John Maddox Roberts and Ruth Downie. They all have separate areas in their books but all are well researched with time lines and what was happening. I have most of the books by all three authors. I guess that is a major hint that I love historical novels
If you love great mystery and story line as well as well researched history of the Roman Empire this series is great. I suggest you start with book on "The Kings Gambit" this way you follow our hero DECIUS from the start. He has had some really bad luck and you will see that Romans make some of our politicians look moral, even noble.
In all of these books it's the last chapter and if I tell you it gives away the main plot, you'll just have to listen. Just when you think you know what is going on there is always a twist. Especially for Decius.
John Lee is one of my favorite narrators, and he never disappoints. The first two book started with another of my favorites Simon Vance, and to tell the truth both narrators are great. You must remember that the story is being told from the point of view Decius is an older man telling stories of his different workings within the Powers that be in the Roman Empire.
It's very hard not to want to do that with all the books in the series because there is always so much going on you want to know what happens next.
This is a great series for some reason books 9 and 10 won't be available but 11,12, & 13 will be in April. I do hope that the other two will be coming soon I hate to read series out of order.
First I'd like to say I have roughly 6 different books on the "King Arthur" Legend. All are different, and in this case the story was taken from a woman's point of view. Many people complain about Anne Flosnick's narrations in many of her books she's narrated. I enjoy her narration and I have over 40 books with her narrating. You should always listen to the free snip it that Audible offers, this way you can her the narrator. I find it amazing when people complain about Simon Vance or John Lee because of their British accent.....Please.
Looking at the Arthur legend from a female perspective, but not just any female, a female warrior, who eventually become his wife.
I enjoy Anne Flosnik and have no problems with her narrations, as a matter of fact many of us have favorite narrators and look for their name when a new book comes out. I have a list of about 20 that I really enjoy I guess it's a matter of having an ear for an accent. I
Well it was kind of long but I finished in two days and really enjoyed it.
Almost every one who reviewed this liked the story but complained about the narrator. If it's that bad and you think you'll never listen to it again contact Audible and see if you can get your credit back, or if you paid for it they will refund your credit card. People should talk more about content, or bad editing or distracting music.If you have a problem with narration maybe a recommendation would be good. I tried to listen to "50 Shades of Gray" using the free listen, It was ling finger nails on a chalk board to me. So I'll never listen to it on Audible. .
Never read print version.
No this was the first time and she did good job
There were many short stories and each one was very different, you could start and stop and keep everything going. When you get an anthology of stories, your not going to "Love" every one of them but I believe at least 90% were excellent and worth the buy. Some were hard core, others were soft core, other were just romantic. A nice mix. I usually enjoy anything RCB puts together. I wasn't disappointed on this one. The good part none of the stories were more than 15 minutes long, so if you felt it was not to your liking you could skip to the next. I only did that 4 times.
