    Infamous erotica author and accomplished dominatrix Nora Sutherlin is doing something utterly out of character: hiding. While her longtime lover, Søren - whose fetishes, if exposed, would be his ruin - is under scrutiny pending a major promotion, Nora's lying low and away from temptation in the lap of luxury. Her host, the wealthy and uninhibited Griffin Fiske, is thrilled to have Nora stay at his country estate, especially once he meets her traveling companion.

    What did you love best about The Angel?

    The relationship between Griffin & Michael; Soren's cunning throughout the entire story. I grew to admire and love Soren much more in this book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The twists and turns; the fact that Soren's and Nora's relationship kept me on the edge as well as Suzanne's involvement and investigation. The end was amazing.


    Have you listened to any of Lilly Rhodes’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No. I think it was a bad decision to change from Aeron James to Miss Rhodes. Aeron, I think, did a much better job with the male voices, especially Soren's. I really got used to his narration in Siren and it was difficult to hear the changed voices - it was like the people had changed, at first.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Both. I was kept on the edge of my seat.


    Any additional comments?

    Would like to see more from this autho. Would like a better match, however, between author and narrator.

    Ten years after disappearing from Antietam, Maryland, the bad boy has come home. Cleaned up and successful now - though still dangerously good-looking - Rafe MacKade sets the town on fire…and tongues wagging. Not even lovely newcomer Regan Bishop is immune to his charms. Though Regan claims to not want to get involved with a rebel, Rafe's pretty sure that her reaction to their sizzling kisses suggests otherwise.

    I enjoyed getting to know the MacKade brothers, their ghosts and the battle of Antietam. I am somewhat of a history buff and knew nothing about this northern most battle. The brothers' stories which incorporate the battle make me want to take a vacation.

    Rafe's story was great as was Regan's "intrusion" into it. Now that we've met the brothers, can't wait to hear how their lives are changed by a "good woman".

    There's no place like home... For teacher Jenna McKnight, nothing spells "heartbreak" like finding her husband with somebody else--in her bed. It's clearly time to reinvent herself. A new body, a new city, and a new job later, she's done just that. The beautiful Auckland villa isn't really her home, though. Finn Douglas and his kids aren't really her family, however much she wishes they were. And playing house can be a dangerous game. Rugby star Finn Douglas is just looking for a temporary nanny and housekeeper. Not a girlfriend, and definitely not a wife. He can't resist Jenna's cooking, it's true. Who knew he'd have so much trouble resisting her? He wants to do what's right for his kids. But waiting is so hard... Note: This romance, like New Zealand, contains a bit of steam. If that isn't your cuppa, maybe visit some other country... er, audiobook.

    Kate Lamonica isn't Koti James' type. Too small. Too dark. And heaps too much work. So it's an easy bet that he can be her friend for six weeks without making a move on her, no matter what his mates would have said. Kate can't believe she's made the bet at all. New Zealand had seemed like the perfect escape from the stalker who'd threatened first her peace of mind and then her life. She certainly doesn't need any more trouble. Why on earth has she agreed to spend time with a Maori rugby player who's far too handsome and charming for his own good - and knows it?

    Everyone needs to be rescued sometimes. Everyone but Hannah Montgomery, that is. She just needs a vacation. Three weeks in New Zealand to sort out her life, figure out what she wants, seems just right. Oh, and to relax. She should definitely put that on the agenda. She certainly isn't looking for a fling with a professional rugby player, no matter how attractive he is. Hannah doesn't do casual. But maybe just this once.…

    I had never heard of this author or narrator before this series, both were amazing. CB's accent was spot-on. I really enjoyed the H & H, background characters and looking forward to their upcoming stories. My tastes run to a bit more on the steamy romance side but the accent of the men kinda made up for this a bit. Hope Audible continues to pick up the rest of the books, beyond #3 as I'm truly a fan.

    This was my first for this author and male narrator. I know I like an author's writing when I check to see what other books Audible offers or I go to the author's website to see what's coming next. In looking back through Audible to see what else is offered by this author I noticed that ratings weren't very high, not sure why, but gonna find out. Hope this is not a "one hit wonder".

    I enjoyed the suspense, drama, twists, turns, heroine and hero and all the background characters. I liked that the book was a little different than those I typically listen to and that this is truly a "romantic suspense" even though somewhat light on the romance. I would have liked more steamy romance but all and all I was glad to spend the credit.

    I also always enjoy Tanya Eby's narration and now same goes for Alexander Cendese.

    Story

    I thought this was the best of the Colorado Mountain series. I absolutely fell in love with both Ty and Lexi, both strong characters. The story had most of everything I enjoy in a good listen; drama, suspense, bad guys, really bad guys, really good guy, good and loyal friends, and somewhat explicit sex. I think KA could have done better in the sex department, describing it in more intimate, glasses steaming detail, but it was all right. I liked that most of the good guys from previous books in this series were still an important part of this one and I also liked that new characters were introduced. But, above all, the strong H/H did it for me, especially Lexi. I don't like to listen to a story where the heroine is "mamby-pamby", indecisive, co-dependent and not her own person. Lexi was none of these; she was strong, "through sass" and determined, yet nurturing.

    Can't wait until the next in the series - Breathe; just hope it's as captivating as this one.

    In the second entry in Heather Killough-Walden's Big Bad Wolf series, when alpha werewolf Malcolm Cole encounters Claire St. James, he's determined to have her as his mate-even if one of the world's most powerful alphas has already staked a claim on her. Contains mature themes.

    Story

    I like the premise of this series, so far, but the narration just might keep me from continuing with it. The narration is stilted and in some parts I could not separate different individual's portion of a conversation, most males sounded the same and female voices were ridiculous. I don't believe GJ was the best person for the narration of this series as there are so many different voices that need to be differentiated. It really is too bad.

    As for the storyline, I believe, after having listened to Book #1 also, that it is getting better and character development, however slow, is also getting better. I don't like, though, that the villain (Gabriel) is the star of the show and is much more described that anyone else.

    I love werewolves, suspense, drama, etc. but I think HK-W needs to step up her game.

    Over six years after the night that changed everything, Danika finds herself forced to spend the weekend constantly in Tristan’s company, as they attend the wedding of two of their dearest friends. It’s been long enough that she feels they can be friendly again without it destroying her peace of mind, but just a small amount of time in his presence has her remembering something she had forced herself to forget: There’d been a reason she’d gone through hell with this man, for this man, some true good to precede the bad.

    Story

    Well, where do I start…I guess by saying that I have only come across a small handful of authors who are able to write with such passion that the story I am listening to draws me into the world of the characters at such a depth that I feel every emotion described or portrayed. I have cried, sobbed really, laughed; my heart has palpitated with anxiety, felt the depression and despair, the hopelessness and hopefulness. I felt the anger when there was anger, disgust and compassion for an addiction that so often sucks the goodness out of life and oh yeah, that ever demoralizing monster of codependency.

    Whew, this trilogy was an emotional roller coaster that was exhausting but well worth the sleepless nights and neglect of everyday mundane chores that would only serve to draw my attention away from seeing how this all played out.

    RK Lilley you truly are a remarkable writer. You are one of the best and I look forward to whatever you decide to grace us with next. Thank you.

    This book was less than what I expected and hoped for; very little substance. Oh, there was some drama, a little angst, suspicion and redemption, but overall not much to sink ones teeth into. Not a waste of time entirely, but definitely not one I would recommend. I keep trying Diana Palmer's books/audios but her writing just doesn't do anything for me.

    PG's narration was pretty good.

    This was very much a disappointment for me. I have always really enjoyed RC's books, have read and listened to all that Audible offers and this is the first that, in my opinion, had virtually no substance. The character development was weak, with the exception of Aunt Flo who wasn't even the star of the show, oh yeah and Cheeks (the dog) and Kary (Chris' daughter). I thought their meager parts and descriptions were much more entertaining and grabbed my attention and heart more so than the two main characters.

    As always Therese Plummer did a wonderful job and am happy to hear that she is still narrating Robyn Carr's audiobooks; she was the only saving grace in this otherwise drab story.
