    The follow-up to the runaway bestsellers On Dublin Street and Down London Road. Despite her outgoing demeanor, Olivia is painfully insecure around the opposite sex - usually, she can't get up the nerve to approach guys she's interested in. But moving to Edinburgh has given her a new start, and, after she develops a crush on a sexy postgrad, she decides it's time to push past her fears and go after what she wants. Nate Sawyer is a gorgeous player who never commits, but to his close friends, he's as loyal as they come.

    Story

    I was truely disappointed in this installment. I was expecting much more from both of these characters from previous appearences in the first two stories. Instead it was almost like the story was rushed, neither caracter was developed and they seemed very shallow. In the previous two stories Ms Youngs characters were deep, some what troubled, slightly flawed but had brains. Olivia and Nate could have and should have had more substance. I felt like it was " okay we will cram this story full of sex ( and no where near the passionate Bradon/Joss kind) and maybe no one will notice the plot is vapid and unfullfilling. That being said I didnt hate it but was very disalousioned after 2 really excellant books. The novellas are very good too, still better then this one. I still am looking forward to Hannahs story.

    After trying to flee from her painful past, Joss is finally allowing herself to embrace the future. But when things start moving faster than she anticipated, she finds herself panicking over something Braden can't understand. After everything they've been through, Joss is sure that their love can survive even her worst fears. But, this time, she may push Braden too far - and risk losing everything all over again.

    Story

    Even though this is a short story, if you have followed Samantha Young's series this is a MUST. You get a glimpse of the plot in a previous story but this gives you the inside scoop. With all the ups, downs and angst. Paula Costello is so perfect for Joss and Braden. She brought Joss to life no question.

But the harpy's incessant wrath has pushed Quentin to the limit, and forces him to make a deadly vow of his own. To put an end to the conflict, Dragos, Lord of the Wyr, sends them on a reconnaissance mission to the Elven land of Numenlaur.

    Story

    Thea Harrison has a knack for this genre. I got hooked with Dragon Bound and never looked back, just waited for the next installment. I have to admit that even though I do love ALL the books and ALL characters, up to this point Dragon Bound and Oracle's Moon were my two favorites. Now this one has just become another, Can't wait for Grimm's story and Grayden to find his own "cupcake". Narration couldn't be better, Sophie you do an excellent job.

    The Mackenzies gather for a clan Christmas and Hogmanay in Scotland. In the chaos of preparations for the celebration - the first of Hart and Eleanor's married life - one of Ian's Ming bowls gets broken, and the family scrambles to save the day. Daniel busily runs a betting ring for everything from the hour Eleanor's baby will arrive, to whether Mac's former-pugilist valet can win a boxing match, to who will be the first of the many guests to be caught under the mistletoe.

    I first read this one on my kindle, but had to have it to listen to. So far I have not been disappointed in any of the stories about the Mackenzie family. This gave you a kind of update on the whole family and what was going on in each couples lives. I wish more authors would do that. This story puts Ian and Beth back in the forefront which delighted me. Ian and Beth awwwww what an exceptional couple they are.

    Story

    I think when an author puts out a really, really great series, then goes on to other things, it is just hard not to compare. I love Robyn Carr and I do like this series. It has all the right stuff. Great characters, interesting plots even if slightly predictable. It just isn't virgin river. I know that is wrong of me but sorry I just can't help it.

    I purchased this a very long time ago and I can't believe I failed to give a review. This is one of my all time favorite NR stories. NR hit the mark in every way with this one. Great story line, interesting and well formed characters, and the perfect narrator. I have listened to this book at least ten times.

    This was a good first in the series. I did like the series, I feel NR has had better ones but this was in no way her worst work. I did like the characters and the story line was good, the narrator not so much. Had a little trouble with listening to her seemingly "struggle" through.

    It's a summer of change for Jennifer O'Malley. The busy physician has a pediatrics practice in Dallas, and meeting Tom Peterson, and falling in love, is adding a rich layer to her life. She's sorting out how to introduce him to her family - she's the youngest of seven - and thinking about marriage. She's falling in love with Jesus too, and knows God is good. But that faith is about to be tested in a way she didn't expect, and the results will soon transform her entire family.

    Story

    I have listened to the O'Malley stories numerous times and purchased the set of paperbacks for my mother. This is a great short story in the continuation of that series. Anyone who has read these books will know this story is a prequel to the series BUT I can't emphasize enough that Ms Henderson put it right where it belonged. It really NEEDS to be read after you read the series. I truly hope she comes out with a "ten years later" or something type story about this family, I would eagerly snap it up.

    Ten years after Blayne Thorpe first encountered Bo Novikov, she still can't get the smooth-talking shifter out of her head. Now he's shadowing her in New York-all seven-plus feet of him - determined to protect her from stalkers who want to use her in shifter dogfights. Even if he has to drag her off to an isolated Maine town where the only neighbors are other bears almost as crazy as he is....

    Story

    I really like this series and have read them all. I was glad to see them come out on audio. These books may never get critical acclaim, but Shelly Laurenston has taken a red hot genre, put her own spin on it and what makes this series work is her great sense of humor. She has developed crazy, interesting characters that you just have to love, laugh at and laugh with. Beast Behaving Badly is my ALL time favorite of all the stories. Once you have read this you will never look at wearing a watch in quite the same way. This narrator was well suited for the story. GREAT JOB Ms Laurenston.
