    Eve Dallas is a New York police lieutenant hunting for a ruthless killer. In over 10 years on the force, she's seen it all - and knows that her survival depends on her instincts. And she's going against every warning telling her not to get involved with Roarke, an Irish billionaire - and suspect in Eve's murder investigation. But passion and seduction have rules of their own, and it's up to Eve to take a chance in the arms of a man she knows nothing about - except the addictive hunger of needing his touch.

    I first picked up a J.D. Robb audio book featuring Lt. Eve Dallas in a retail store and now I cannot seem to put them down. The book is fast moving and everytime you think you have solved the crime. Think again. Wonderful book series.

    Genevieve Buchanan inherited a castle—and a ghost to go along with it. But Kendrick de Piaget was no typical ghost. He was a handsome and infuriatingly arrogant 13th-century knight. At first, he wanted to frighten Genevieve, though she was more charmed than scared by his ghostly tricks. But when his thoughts turned to wooing her instead, Genevieve had to face her greatest fear: falling in love.

    I selected the audio version of Stardust of Yesterday since the book was not available for the Kindle. I started reading the series (but do not worry all book stand alone) the start of the summer. I have enjoyed all the books and I might add I do not usually read series books. The characters come alive in their own stories and are very enjoyable.

    A Signature Performance: Tim Curry rescues Charles Dickens from the jaws of Disney with his one-of-a-kind performance of the treasured classic. Our listeners loved this version so much that it inspired our whole line of Signature Classics.

    I thought Tim Curry's narration of "A Christmas Carol" was spellbinding. I enjoyed every moment of the story. He brought the story to life. Excellent.

    Connie's mother asks her to sell an abandoned house once owned by her grandmother in Salem, Mass. Relunctantly, Connie moves to the small town and inhabits the crumbling, ancient house, trying to restore it to a semblance of order. Curious things start to happen when Connie finds the name "Deliverance Dane" on a yellowed scrap of paper and begins to have visions of a long ago woman condemned for practicing "physick," or herbal healing, on her neighbors in 1690s Salem.

    Darinda says: "Love it!"

    Some books you start reading and put it down and hope someone will take it. But, this book is not one of those. Excellent read if you like two stories in one book. Loved every minute of it.

    Jane Rochford was the sister-in-law to Anne Boleyn and Lady of the Bedchamber to Catherine Howard, whom she followed to the scaffold in 1542. Hers is a life of extraordinary drama as a witness to and participant in the greatest events of Henry's reign. Her supposed part in both Anne Boleyn's and Catherine Howard's downfall has led to her being reviled through the centuries.

    Jennifer says: "Shines new light on Jane"
    "Jane Boleyn, The Infamous Lady Rochford"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed this audio book. Fact and fiction have so completely warped other books that it was nice to see an author took the time to research the subject before writting the book. I recommend it to anyone who would like a different point of view on Jane Boleyn and the times she lived in.

    Leonie Frieda has returned to original sources and re-read the thousands of letters left by Catherine de Medici. There has not been a biography in English of Catherine for many years, and she believes that the time has come to show her as one of the most influential women in 16th-century Europe.

    Die Falknerin says: "An outstanding performance of an excellent book"

    Excellent book. I have not found much on Catherine De Medici and it was just enjoyable to finally hear some of her accomplishment throughout her life time.

    In To Shield the Queen, we were introduced to Ursula Blanchard, lady-in-waiting to Queen Elizabeth I and one of the most entrancing mystery heroines to come along in many a season. Having once saved the Virgin Queen from political disaster, now young Ursula faces an even greater challenge. Some of her old acquaintances may be plotting to overthrow Elizabeth in favor of Mary, Queen of Scots, and the re-establishment of the Catholic faith.

    Wadie says: "Always entertaining"
    "Doublet Affair"
    Overall

    If you have some time the book is great, but it is a bit long winded. The history errors in the story are explained at the end of the book, to my satisfaction.

    At first the book was hard to get into, but once the story started it was a fairly good story.

    The newly-married couple welcome the doomed queen into their home, certain that serving as her hosts and jailers will bring them an advantage in the cutthroat world of the Elizabethan court. To their horror, they find that the task will bankrupt them, and as their home becomes the epicenter of intrigue and rebellion against Elizabeth, their loyalty to each other and to their sovereign comes into question.

    Cheryl says: "Not up to usual standards"
    "The Other Queen"

    When this book first came out I was to busy to read it. It was worth the wait, excellent book.
