    Daisy Minor is bored. Worse than that, she's boring. A plain, small-town librarian, she's got a wardrobe as sexy as a dictionary and hasn't been on a date in years. She's never even had a lukewarm love affair, let alone a hot one. So when she wakes up on her 34th birthday and wonders how it is that she still lives with her widowed mom and spinster aunt while her friends have all gotten married and started families, she decides it's time to get a life - and a sex life.

    Forever You, is the highly anticipated sequel to USA Today’s best seller Forever Black. Connor Black’s life consisted of his company and his use of multiple women. There was never going to be love, relationships, or a fairy-tale life. Emotionally dead and damaged after a personal tragedy, Connor Black vowed never to love or fall in love with a woman - until Ellery Lane walked into his life by accident and changed him forever. He starts experiencing feelings and emotions he never felt before and finds himself being drawn into her world.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to By Right of Arms the most enjoyable?

    Where to start. First any story needs a good nay grear narrator who can do women as well as men voices. Nicola Barber is fanstastic!! I love Elizabeth Hoyt's books, but that narrator Anne Flosnik and her name escapes me, ruins the story, This books was soooo good and a great story line to boot! I loved the characters and spirit of the female lead. I am now a Robin Carr fan, and will seek out her other works. I just hope Nicola Barber is narrating..


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Auralie of, course, burdened with an compromised a consumed first husband, and her values of marriage were stupendous.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Too many to count, of of them....


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The birth of the twins


    Any additional comments?

    I just loved this book, Author, and Narrator.. ..

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Look, I love Nora Roberts, but her character ""LIz" ala "Abilgail, in small town USA
    with a country sheriff, was just to much. It was a struggle trying to get through the story


    Would you be willing to try another book from Nora Roberts? Why or why not?

    yeah, I'll screen it better though


    How could the performance have been better?

    too much monotone, science and romance don't mix. Abigail got on my nerves


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Nah


    Any additional comments?

    Yeck. I'm still getting through it after a week.....usually I'm done with the book in two days..

    Gideon Cross: As beautiful and flawless on the outside as he was damaged and tormented on the inside. He was a bright, scorching flame that singed me with the darkest of pleasures. I couldn’t stay away. I didn’t want to. He was my addiction…my every desire…mine. My past was as violent as his, and I was just as broken. We’d never work. It was too hard, too painful…except when it was perfect. Those moments when the driving hunger and desperate love were the most exquisite insanity. We were bound by our need. And our passion would take us beyond our limits to the sweetest, sharpest edge of obsession.…

    A fabulous lost Amazon city once inhabited by women warriors and containing a rare red diamond: it sounded like myth, but archeologist Jillian Sherwood believed it was real, and she was willing to put up with anything to find it - even Ben Lewis. Ruffian, knock-about, and number one river guide in Brazil, Ben was all man - over six feet of rock-hard muscles that rippled under his khakis, with lazy blue eyes that taunted her from his tanned face.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    It started out promising.....then downhill. To be fair, I couldn't even finish the book. When What'shisname, was named for wanting sex right off the bat, The die was cast.


    To make it better, Just lead up to the guy being a womanizer. Sorry, I cant' even remember the characters except she is the daughter of a archeologist, and he was a guide through the amazon. She knows she wants him but all the cat and mouse love scenes got on my nerves. I may go back to the book , but when? I don't know.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Sylvia Day's books. Now, I love Linda Howard but I don't know what's happening to her Stories.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She was ok


    What character would you cut from Heart of Fire?

    The lead guy and girl


    Any additional comments?

    Linda? Finish your series of Blood born and get a grip

    "Gideon Cross came into my life like lightning in the darkness… He was beautiful and brilliant, jagged and white-hot. I was drawn to him as I’d never been to anything or anyone in my life. I craved his touch like a drug, even knowing it would weaken me. I was flawed and damaged, and he opened those cracks in me so easily…Gideon knew. He had demons of his own. And we would become the mirrors that reflected each other’s most private wounds…and desires."

    "Do her" that's when the fun began.


    What about Jill Redfield’s performance did you like?

    I only have a few favorite narrator I like to listen
    To, I thought when Anna Fields died the audio world was doomed
    , but Jill has great skills and not many can do male and female
    Voices justice.she totally rocks. ! My two ultimate favorites
    Are Jill and Xe Sands

    Yes. It had me doing both especially about
    The abuse Ava suffered.

    Lover. This book is for you. Very graphic sex raw
    Raunchy, explicit. Love it love it. I will buy every one
    Of Sylvia Days books. She gives major props to Nora
    Roberts in "Reflections" but Sylvia is Nora on

He uses his notorious good looks and sophisticated charm to gratify his every whim, but is secretly tortured by his dark past and consumed by the profound belief that he is beyond all hope of redemption. When the sweet and innocent Julia Mitchell enrolls as his graduate student, his attraction and mysterious connection to her not only jeopardizes his career, but sends him on a journey in which his past and his present collide.
