    After a slow summer of chasing low-level skips for her cousin Vinnie's bail bonds agency, Stephanie Plum finally lands an assignment that could put her checkbook back in the black. Geoffrey Cubbin, facing trial for embezzling millions from Trenton's premier assisted-living facility, has mysteriously vanished from the hospital after an emergency appendectomy. Now it's on Stephanie to track down the con man. Unfortunately, Cubbin has disappeared without a trace, a witness, or his money-hungry wife. Rumors are stirring that he must have had help with the daring escape...or that maybe he never made it out of his room alive.

    I always enjoy Evanovich's stories about Stephanie Plum. The story was fun and entertaining! Reading a Plum novel is like catching up with old friends.

    Ryder is the hardest Montgomery brother to figure out - with a tough-as-nails outside and possibly nothing too soft underneath. He’s surly and unsociable, but when he straps on a tool belt, no woman can resist his sexy swagger. Except, apparently, Hope Beaumont, the innkeeper of his own Inn BoonsBoro.... As the former manager of a D.C. hotel, Hope is used to excitement and glamour, but that doesn’t mean she can’t appreciate the joys of small-town living. She’s where she wants to be - except for in her love life....

    I enjoyed this series alot! Fell in love with the brothers and enjoyed each of their stories. Roberts writing is infused with equal amounts of humor, sexy scenes, and interesting characters. It would be hard to pick a favorite character since as the series go one comes to love them all.
    It's a light series, not too deep, but interesting enough to keep me listening way too late at night.I would definitely recommend the three books.

    I must say I am a fool for an Irish brogue and this narrator did a great job in that regard. The story kept my attention and I enjoyed it. There was a little too much self sacrifice going on for me to give it any more stars, but it was entertaining with a good supporting cast!

    Destined to be a duke, Charles de Lacey, Lord Gresham, has led a life of decadent pleasure, free of any care for propriety or responsibility. It comes as a terrible shock to learn that he might be stripped of everything, thanks to his father's scandalous past. He has no choice but to find the blackmailer who would ruin him - and his only link to the villain is a woman who may be part of the plot. To save his fortune and title, Charles vows to stop at nothing - in fact, he's all too eager to unravel the beautiful, tart-tongued Tessa Neville.

    Story

    I am someone who needs to read a series to the conclusion. This book was OK, not the best, but far from the worst I have listened to. I am just saying that of the three books in this series, this is the weakest story line. It's redeeming qualities are that it tied up the loose ends of a story line that carried nicely through this series of three stories about three brothers. The characters were engaging, but their story was mediocre. However, I was glad to hear Charlie's story. If I had to do it again, I would read this series. Linden's stories entertain me.

    A bargain that was all business - and pure passion. Neither wealth nor beauty will help Lady Francesca Gordon win custody of her young niece Georgina, saving the girl from a cruel stepmother. She needs London's top solicitor for that. But when Edward de Lacey, son of the powerful Duke of Durham, hires away the one man who can do the job, Francesca decides Edward himself must champion her case - if only she can melt the dashing lord's stony heart. Edward has reason to be guarded, though. London's tabloids have just exposed a secret that could ruin his entire family.

    I liked the story and was pleased by the fact that it wasn't the typical earl chasing the virginal miss. The characters were interesting. I enjoyed watching the interplay between the main characters contrasting personalities and the way the heroine caused the hero to loosen up. Linden also writes steamy love scenes! Worth the read.

    Katherine Howe's first marriage was one of dreary duty. Now that she's being pressured to marry her late husband's heir, she's desperate for a better option. Gerard de Lacey, with his sinful good looks, charming manner, and looming scandal, fits her needs perfectly. The fact that she's nursed a secret affection for him only makes it better - and worse. Because Gerard will likely marry her for her fortune - but can he love her for herself, as she loves him?

    Desperation has led Anne-Sophia Duncombe to a life of exile. Still, she is always just one mistake away from capture and a marriage she would rather die than endure. As a last resort to remain hidden from her former life, Sophia attempts a radical scheme: a life of humility and disguise. Rumor has it that Wilhelm Montegue, the Earl of Devon, is insane. A tormented war hero haunted by scandal, he is only tolerated because of his brilliant mind and swarthy good looks.

    Story

    I liked the characters in this story; however, it dragged in some spots. Also, I got tired of all the unfulfilled longing, seriously? just get it over with. The saving grace for this book was the hero who was obviously on the spectrum. The author played to his strengths, which is as it should be. I appreciated him and the woman who could love him for what he was. There were good supporting characters, but not my favorite.
    Narrator was good which is why I gave it 'middle of the road' ratings.

    He owns three shipping companies, a diamond mine, and his own castle. He knows Portuguese, Hindi, Mandarin, and Morse code. His assets net thirteen million. Everyone thinks Andrew Tilmore, Lord Preston, the financial prodigy dubbed "The King of Threadneedle Street," has it all, but he wants the one prize money can't buy: His childhood sweetheart. Alysia Villier can't say if it's worse having Andrew's father in control of her inheritance or Andrew in control of her heart.

    Some of this was interesting just because it tied into the first story, but overall was kind of lame. Most of the characters were OK, but the story got old fast. There was not a lot to hold my interest and I found my mind wandering. I kept with it because I was interested in the fates of the various characters, many from the first book, but I would not recommend this book.
    I gave it a 2 overall because I didn't want to knock the narrator. She was fine.

    As the daughter of a famed author, Isolde Ophelia Goodnight grew up on tales of brave knights and fair maidens. She never doubted romance would be in her future, too. The storybooks offered endless possibilities. And as she grew older, Izzy crossed them off. One by one by one....Now Izzy's given up yearning for romance. She'll settle for a roof over her head. What fairy tales are left over for an impoverished 26-year-old woman who's never even been kissed?

    Dare is one of my favorite authors. Her stories are witty with likable, well developed characters. I found myself laughing out loud at times, and groaning at others. She pulls you into the story and you don't want to leave. No great stresses or intrigues to bedevil the reader, but instead an enjoyable read with lots of humor and humanity.

    Please Audible-get more of her books!

    Another good story. Bradley really adds depth to characters we have already met. Although the book could stand alone, it is a definite compliment to the first in the series and another enjoyable listen. The tale continues with more intrigue and challenges. The narrator is top of the line!
