    Story

    Winterblaze is more than a book. It's an emotional adventure into a highly addictive paranormal world starring two well-crafted characters who command every scene, complete with a stellar supporting cast who leave a mark of their own.

    The Narrater Moira Quirk gives life to the story with her wonderful seductive voice.

    The novel and the narrator left me wanting more of the Darkest London stories, and that’s how I want every book I read to end.

    With indifferent parents, Iona Sheehan grew up craving devotion and acceptance. From her maternal grandmother, she learned where to find both: a land of lush forests, dazzling lakes, and centuries-old legends. Ireland. County Mayo, to be exact. Where her ancestors’ blood and magic have flowed through generations - and where her destiny awaits.

    Nothing's better than a combination of Nora Roberts and Katherine Kellgren.
    The story is moving and beautiful and KK makes it even more wonderful with her voice.
    NR makes you care for her characters and love them. I'm waiting for the rest in the series to come out. I've seen them in the kindle edition for pre-order but not yet in the audible version.
    Can't wait for the audible version to come out. Hope it's being read by KK again.

    England, 1888. Quiet and scholarly Princess Emilie has always avoided adventure, until she's forced to disguise herself as a tutor in the household of the imposing Duke of Ashland, a former soldier disfigured in battle and abandoned by his wife. When chance draws her into a secret liaison with the duke, Emilie can't resist the opportunity to learn what lies behind his forbidding mask and find out what adventure really means. The duke never imagines that his son's tutor and his mysterious golden-haired beauty are one and the same.

    I must say I enjoyed the book once I'd forced myself to get past the first 2 hours.
    Had I not been traveling and could change to another book I would have. But I was stuck with this book and figured I'd read it through. I must say I was glad of it and have gone on to purchase the second title in this series and have started listening to it too.
    I takes some getting used to. but once you have it's a good book.

    Kristen Callihan must write faster cause I'm dying for more of her books.
    Just the perfect match of Paranormal along with Regency romance it's unbelievable.
    I'm glad the series is being continued and would never want it to end.
    Moira Quirk has a voice that makes your toes curl in pleasure.

    I listened to this book just for the whole purpose of getting to the end. Nothing exciting ever happens in the book, and it's one you'd listen to if you didn't have anything better to do. Of if you can't sleep. Lie down, relax and listen and trust me you'll be instantly asleep. Rosalyn Landor has a wonderful voice that coupled with a boring book puts you to sleep in a flash. If it wasn't for Rosalyn Landor I wouldn't have even gone through 30 mins of the book.

    In the heart of Italy, Harvard professor of symbology, Robert Langdon, is drawn into a harrowing world centered on one of history’s most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces: Dante’s Inferno. Against this backdrop, Langdon battles a chilling adversary and grapples with an ingenious riddle that pulls him into a landscape of classic art, secret passageways, and futuristic science. Drawing from Dante’s dark epic poem, Langdon races to find answers and decide whom to trust...before the world is irrevocably altered.

    Story

    Robert Langdon starts his books like he always does. An explosive beginning! Except now he’s not running away or being whisked off at warp speed in private jets. Here he’s flat in a hospital bed with amnesia and a bullet wound in his head, with a female assassin shooting up the hospital trying to kill him. One thing that is a given in the Robert Langdon series is how Dan Brown copies Ian Fleming, and gives his hero a beautiful clever female sidekick, in this case the female doctor Sienna Brooks who was treating Langdon when he stumbled into the hospital.
    Sienna Brooks, being a doctor and who comes across as being street smart and able to think fast on her feet has this really irritating quality of giving Langdon bits and pieces of information from when he stumbles into the hospital and never the whole thing in one go. You’d think that someone with an IQ of 208 (Steven Hawkins was 200) would know better.
    As Langdon and Sienna stumble through the city and the Piazzas there are way too many references to his eidetic memory. Don’t understand why it needs to be repeated so. Mention it once, twice; we get the point! Don’t wear it thin!!??
    Amazing how Langdon see’s the blemishes on the back of Dante’s Death Mask while it’s in the plastic and then totally forgets about looking for them or just doesn't see them after he’s taken the mask out of the plastic until Sienna hurriedly stops him and tells him about the blemishes.
    Lots of gaps but must say if I go on it’ll just be spoilers. At the end of the day it is a work of fiction, and to be taken with a pinch of salt. As a read it’s a pretty good one, that is if you’re not so picky about the details as I am.
    Very much worth a credit!

    Declan Fitzgerald had always been the family maverick, but even he couldn't understand his impulse to buy a dilapidated mansion on the outskirts of New Orleans. All he knew was that ever since he saw Manet Hall, he'd been enchanted - and obsessed - with it. So when the opportunity to buy the house comes up Declan jumps at the chance to live out a dream.

    I absolutely loved this book!!! It was filled with intrigue, mystery, love, passion and just the right amount of humor to warm your heart. I loved they way Sandra Burr did the before version and James Daniels the present day version. Both have wonderful voices. I've always loved Nora Roberts and this is definitely one of her better works, though I thought the end was a tad bit rushed.

    I've read other Lesley Pearse titles and bought this same on the assumtion that they would be just as exciting. If it wasn't for the Narrator I would have left this book half way. The situations didn't add up. That is what I found most unbecoming. LP is a lovely author, but this is not one of her best books.

    One look at Harry Pye, and Georgina knows she's not just dealing with a servant, but a man. Harry has known many aristocrats - including one particular nobleman who is his sworn enemy. But Harry has never met a beautiful lady so independent, uninhibited, and eager to be in his arms. Still, it's impossible to conduct a discreet liaison when poisoned sheep, murdered villagers, and an enraged magistrate have the county in an uproar.

    If you are interested in Historical fiction with romance then this is the book for you. Very seductive, as well as moving. This is definetly worth a credit. Moira's voice is such that you just want to listen, and it calms your senses. If you want to just sit by the pool and relax, or sit by the fire (depending on which hemisphere your in) then this book is must.

    This is my first book of EH and I must say I only downloaded the book cause of the narrator. I do love historical romances, so that was an added bonus. I must say I couldn't get enough of Moira Quirk's voice. The story I must say was a bit confusing at the beginning of each chapter but after two chapters I figured it was a reading from the little red book in the Earl's library. The characters are not flat and EH makes you feel for them.
    They have lots of passion and drive.
    worth a credit..
