    Governess Honoria Wetherby values her independence. She would rather travel the world than marry and give some man control of her life. Then, one stormy evening, fate changes all her plans. She stumbles upon a mortally wounded young man in the woods. When the stranger dies, she is trapped in a cabin with his body and with his newly arrived cousin, Devil, whom she soon learns is aptly named.

    The narration was superb and I found myself taking the long way to and from work just so I could listen to more of the story. I have since put all the Cynster's novels on my wish list.

    It was whispered all through London society that he was a murderer, that he'd spent his youth in an asylum and was not to be trusted - especially with a lady. Any woman caught in his presence was immediately ruined. Yet Beth found herself inexorably drawn to the Scottish lord whose hint of a brogue wrapped around her like silk and whose touch could draw her into a world of ecstasy.

    Ewan McCabe, the eldest, is a warrior determined to vanquish his enemy. Now, with the time ripe for battle, his men are ready and Ewan is poised to take back what is his-until a blue-eyed, raven-haired temptress is thrust upon him. Mairin may be the salvation of Ewan's clan, but for a man who dreams only of revenge, matters of the heart are strange territory to conquer.

    Where does In Bed with a Highlander rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The absolute BEST EVER! I want more Highlander romance after this trilogy.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    All of them were my favorites - I love how each new book story line flowed into the other's and kept all the characters involved even though a new story was unfolding.


    What about Kirsten Potter’s performance did you like?

    Exceptional!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Passionate and Sexy!

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Sherbrooke Bride to be better than the print version?

    Not sure - didn't read the printed version


    What other book might you compare The Sherbrooke Bride to and why?

    I think they all are the same somewhat - but this was an entertaining story.


    What about Anne Flosnik’s performance did you like?

    It took some time to get used to her male voice - I wasn't to happy about those but otherwise I love the performance.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.

    Caelen McCabe's young, reckless heart nearly destroyed his clan. Now, putting family loyalty above all else, he steps up to marry his older brother's jilted bride and salvage the uneasy alliance between two clans. While beautiful Rionna McDonald is a fit wife for any man, Caelen trusts no woman, especially not this sweet temptress who torments him with white-hot longing. As the sacrificial lamb in her father's power game, Rionna will do her duty but vows to protect her heart and her pride from humiliation.

    Judith Hampton was as beautiful as she was proud and loyal. Her dear Scottish friend from childhood was about to give birth, and Judith had promised to be at her side. But there was another reason for the journey from her bleak English home to the Highlands: to meet the father she had never known, the Laird Maclean. Nothing prepared her, however, for the sight of the Scottish barbarian who was to escort her into his land...Iain Maitland, laird of his clan, a man more powerfully compelling than any she had ever encountered.

    I have tried to listen to this book but I get a massive headache from the narrators attempt to do male voices. Ugh! It's the worst -- I can't listen to any of Susan Duerden's narration a they are so bad. So disappointing.

    Despite considerable press coverage and a lengthy trial, the full story of the Fundamentalist Church of Latter Day Saints has remained largely untold. Only one man can reveal the whole, astounding truth: Sam Brower, the private investigator who devoted years of his life to breaking open the secret practices of the FLDS and bringing Warren Jeffs and his inner circle to justice.

    Story

    I decided to listen to this book after listening to "A Thousand Lives: The Untold Story of Hope, Deception, and Survival at Jonestown" by Julia Scheeres. Both books intrigued me in relation to how some religious "leaders" can manipulate their followers all in the name of God. This book reveals so much about FLDS and its leader Warren Jeffs, and the most astounding thing about the whole story is that no elected officials would try and save those unfortunate children even after his diaries revealed his and other male follower's sexual abuse and depravity. The story is a sad but cautionary tale of what can happen, when one person has too much power over people and their psyches -- all the while pursuing their illicit pursuits under the guise of being religious and one with the Lord.

    By edict of the king, the mighty Scottish laird Alec Kincaid must take an English bride. His choice was Jamie the feisty youngest daughter of Baron Jamison. Alec ached to touch her, to tame her, to possess her forever. But Jamie vowed never to surrender to this highland barbarian. Though his kisses fired her blood, shadowed secrets from Alec's past threatened Jamie's happiness. She brazenly resisted him - until one rapturous moment quelled their clash of wills.

    This is my first time listening to an audio book version of a romance novel. It was definitely worth the extra cost. I could listen to the novel and was so entertained by the performances of the narrator - that I often found it hard to leave my car once I had reached my destination. I love Julie Garwood books but I haven't had time to read them lately - this was an excellent alternative. PS: This was also a great story - all the usual suspects with twists and turns. I found myself smiling at the end of the story - while wishfully wanting to know more about the future of the Kincaid clan.
