    Fegan has been a "hard man" - an IRA killer in Northern Ireland. Now that peace has come, he is being haunted day and night by 12 ghosts: a mother and infant, a schoolboy, a butcher, an RUC constable, and seven other of his innocent victims. In order to appease them, he's going to have to kill the men who gave him orders. As he's working his way down the list, he encounters a woman who may offer him redemption; she has borne a child to an RUC officer and is an outsider too.

    David P. McGivern says: "What an unexpected good read!"

    Overall

    A am a hard core romance junkie. With that said, this is not a romance, I have no idea why I decided to purchase it, it was a moment of whimsy. I am glad for that moment, this story thought a bit slow in the beginning, became an addiction, my headset didn't leave me until the story finished. Not only because of the story itself; yet, also because of the narration. There is nothing worse then listening t a badly narrated story. I will not give you any particulars on the story itself other then to say- challenge yourself look for clues in the story- Is he mad or truly haunted? You wont regret finding out.

    Holly Cavanaugh has one chance to prove to the travel show Weekend Getaway that her struggling B&B is a perfect destination. So she decks the halls, winds the garland, hangs the mistletoe, unwraps the Christmas tree and - finds a body. At that moment, a reporter arrives. And it's none other than her ex, Zach Weldon, looking sexier than ever. Thinking he's with the travel show, she's forced to distract Zach by any means necessary while her maid and grandparents hide the body.

    It would have been impossible for Molly not to take a long, hard look at the Impala in the parking lot: it's big, dark, and impressive. But it isn't the only thing that gets her engine revving.

    Kim says: "A quickie"
    "Got it as a free download adn glad"
    Overall

    The chopping writing style alone made me glad it was a short story; the story itself did a 360- from sex-k-paid to deep feelings after a 1 nighter? I don't know, this is the first erotica I have listened to or read, I'm more of a generic romance if I read em- so maybe my opinion is off- but in my opinion this sis a listen at ur own risker.

    When Kayla Grey is caught in a fierce snowstorm in Montana, she is rescued by the very man she'd come to find. Cal was a true cowboy and also the brother of the man who'd wanted to marry her. But she didn't discover that until too late - after they'd kissed by a roaring fire and Kayla felt a desire she'd never known.

    Melinda Parmer says: "Short and tense"

    Overall

    I downloaded this to try a new author and will not be adding any more of her books to my collection. The writing style is fine, as well as the narrator chosen for the piece. But the story stretches so far; I just had to laugh sometimes at the ridiculousness. If you don’t mind something a bit far fetched- give it a try, there are some funny parts and the author does wrap up the story.

    Sophie Dempsey wants to help her sister film a video and then get out of Temptation, Ohio. Mayor Phin Tucker wants to play pool with the police chief and keep things peaceful. But when Sophie and Phin meet, they both get more than they want. Gossip, blackmail, adultery, murder, vehicular abuse of a corpse, and slightly perverse but excellent sex: all hell breaks loose in Temptation.

    Diana says: "Crusie at the top of her game"
    "A sweet listen for someone needing a giggle"
    Overall

    I downloaded this to try a new author and was pleasantly surprised with the wit and fun phrase turning. There are some parts that could use a little more delevopment, but all in all- if u want a romance without porn-style sex scences and a bit of mystery- give this story a try.

  • The Boleyn Inheritance

    The Boleyn Inheritance is a novel drawn tight as a lute string about a court ruled by the gallows and three women whose positions brought them wealth, admiration, and power - as well as deceit, betrayal, and terror. Once again, Philippa Gregory has brought a vanished world to life: the whisper of a silk skirt on a stone stair, the yellow glow of candlelight illuminating a hastily written note, the murmurs of the crowd gathering on Tower Green below the newly built scaffold.

    Teddy says: "Simply Awed...."
    "By far the best"
    Overall

    Its important to read/listen to these in a certain order- be sure to read the Other Boleyn Girl first to truelly savor the ending. The voice actors we're great, even bringing me to tears near the end as I listened to Little Kitties desperation. Defiantly worth a listen or two or three.

    I was expecting a little something to make you want to look into other books, you know like before the movies, little previews to make you want something else. Instead I get a knee slapping one sided diologue.

  • The Beginner's Guide to Wicca

    The great power of transformation in nature - in Wicca what is called "The Goddess" - can help you make transitions in your own life, connect more deeply with your own inner power, and bring healing to yourself, your community, and the world around us. In The Beginner's Guide to Wicca, Starhawk invites you to look at life from the perspective of this earth-based tradition that draws from wisdom and nature.

    Laurie says: "Good place to begin"
    "Okay for an introduction"
    Overall

    I've been out of the broom closet for a while and enjoy listening to/reading about different paths and pagan styles. The conversational quality of the book makes it easy to listen to and not loss interest. The meditation exercise is a great information and advice for centering ones self. The only thing I didn't like was the very feminist tone of the book, but I do take into account the author and their beliefs. The male aspect is discussed, but very briefly, that is the only thing I didn't like. There was no male or other religion bashing, and the tone is very open and inviting. A great example of an open, welcoming introduction to one of the many pagan paths.

    After nursing a broken engagement with Jane Austen novels and Absolut, Courtney Stone wakes up and finds herself not in her Los Angeles bedroom, or even in her own body, but inside the bedchamber of a woman in Regency England. Who but an Austen addict like herself could concoct such a fantasy?

    Amazon Customer says: "Delightful"
    "Good and Bad moment"
    Overall

    The story line is cute, with moments that bring ona giggle or two, most likely I will listen again. The only bad side I found was the ending, per other reviews I was expecting a twist, its there, but a bit weak in my estimation. With the build up I was expecting more, or something else. Over all, the moments of insanity and character conflict are worth the journey.
