    I don't know what is better, the amazing Gabra Zackman narrating in her signature "Sophie Katz" voices, seamlessly transferring from character to character without missing a beat...or the whitty dialogue of both the primary story, and the chapter beginning quotes.

    This book made me laugh out loud many times and it was a quick, fun listen that kept you guessing on who the villians were all throughout.

    Definately recommend! Listen to them all if you haven't already, this one was worth the wait!

    Sebastian Malheur is the most dangerous sort of rake: an educated one. When he’s not scandalizing ladies in the bedchamber, he’s outraging proper society with his scientific theories. He’s desired, reviled, acclaimed, and despised - and he laughs through it all. Violet Waterfield, the widowed Countess of Cambury, on the other hand, is entirely respectable, and she’d like to stay that way. But Violet has a secret that is beyond ruinous, one that ties her irrevocably to England’s most infamous scoundrel: Sebastian’s theories aren’t his. They’re hers.

    Story

    I truly enjoyed this historical romance! Only Courtney Milan could make the inheritance of traits interesting! The characters, favorites since the first in the series are colorful, endearing and thetheir relationships and stories are believable and at times painful. The journey is a scientific delight, the ending worth the struggles and wait. The parts about Rakus Erectus and associated scientific names cracked me up! But the author's note at the end had me bursting into tears...the historic representation of the Violets of the world and untold stories touched me. This book took extraordinary research, it shows. Worth the credits, and Rosalyn Landor is flawless as usual.

    Welcome to Spindle Cove, where the ladies with delicate constitutions come for the sea air, and men in their prime are..nowhere to be found. Or are they? Spindle Cove is the destination of choice for certain types of well-bred young ladies: The painfully shy, young wives disenchanted with matrimony, and young girls too enchanted with the wrong men; it is a haven for those who live there. Victor Bramwell, the new Earl of Rycliff, knows he doesn't belong here.

    This is a well written book in terms of characters, scenery, and witty dialog. However, I found myself drifting off during many parts that didn't keep my attention. I love historical romance and this is worth a credit, but the plot is not a great suspensful page turner. It is a light, romantic fair and a funny story about "spinster cove". I think I will give the second book a chance however.

    The Highlands of Scotland, Autumn 1344..... She had won his heart without trying... and he can only pray for the chance to give her his. When Findley McKenna returns after his battle with the English to offer Maggy Boyle a home amongst his clan, he finds only death and destruction instead of the young widow who has stolen his heart. The only things left of her home is the burned out hut and decaying bodies of the auld people Maggy has taken care of for the past three years. With only a prayer, his Highlander heart, and a bit of bloodied plaid to cling to, Findley will crawl through hell if he must, in order to find Maggy and her sons and avenge the massacre before him.

    First introduced in Julie Garwood's magnificent New York Times bestseller For the Roses, the Clayborne brothers of Blue Belle, Montana, have been embraced by millions more through this trio of #1 bestselling novels. Now collected in one volume, these stories tell of three spirited brothers - once a mismatched gang of street urchins - who learn that love flourishes in the most unexpected places…One Pink Rose.

    After two hours, I had to turn it off. The voices of the brothers sound like they are all highly effeminate and unrealistic. It is just not the Julie I am accustomed to having started with her Highland series'. Too long, not the best choice for narration and I couldn't get through it. Just painful.

    Christina Bennett had taken London society by storm. The ravishing beauty guarded the secret of her mysterious past until the night Lyon, Marquis of Lyonwood, stole a searching, sensuous kiss. An arrogant nobleman with a pirate's passions, he tasted the wildfire smoldering beneath Christina's cool charm and swore to possess her.... But the feisty and defiant Christina would not be so easily conquered. Mistress of her heart and of her fortune, she resisted Lyon's sensuous caresses.

    Julie has really done it again! A great heroin, with a new story line. No clammy, boring English fellows here - this Lord is just the right one to match wits with Christina. Excellent, highly recommend, enjoyed every minute! The narrarator switched from a young girl, a man, another man to a nasty old countess within seconds and you don't even notice.

No one, not even her family, knows that she cannot hear. Content with her life of seclusion, Eveline has taught herself to read lips and allows the outside world to view her as daft. But when an arranged marriage into a rival clan makes Graeme Montgomery her husband, Eveline accepts her duty -unprepared for the delights to come.

    There are many more detailed reviews so I will save the paragraphs and tell you this is not a hard core erotic novel, thankfully, it is a great contemporary romance set in the Highlands with a WONDERFUL narrator, a great and realistic story line and fascinating characters and heroin. Buy it, well worth it!!! Can't wait to start the next ones.

    I loved these books so decided to buy the audio for work time, however this narrator feels sounds like she is reading from a sheet of paper instead of sounding natural. She needs some practice, not enough differentiation in the voices which are vast between the girls. Recommend, but not a great narrator.
