    Townsfolk called him the devil. For dark and enigmatic Julian, Earl of Ravenwood, was a man with a legendary temper and a first wife whose mysterious death would not be forgotten. Now country-bred Sophy Dorring was about to become Ravenwood's new bride. Drawn to the glitters of desire that burned in his emerald eyes, Sophy had her own reasons for agreeing to a marriage of convenience. One was vengeance, and in it's pursuit she would entangle Julian in a dangerous masquerade.

    Overall

    Let me count the ways:
    I liked the characters (they are fun, funny, and overall likeable. Wish we could have known the bad guy a little more).
    I liked the setting (awww, who doesn't like a little historical romance?)
    I liked the narrator (Great voices, pretty consistant).
    I like the voice (easy to understand, not passive or irritating)
    I like the pacing (moves along with fun detail)
    I like the story ("and they lived . . ." well, you'll have to read the book to find out).

    All in all, it was a fun read.
    Enjoy.

    They call him the Devil.... He is the most notorious laird of Scotland: fierce, cold, deadly...and maybe even worse. Yet Evelinde has just agreed to wed him. Anything, she thinks, is better than her cruel stepmother. Though Evelinde should be wary of the rumors, she can't help but be drawn to this warrior...for the Devil of the Highlands inspires a heat within her that is unlike anything she has ever known.

    Rebecca says: "Eeyore"
    "good story"
    Overall

    Preface: I am a Lynsay Sands fan. I like her humor and her way of story telling.

    Story: I found myself laughing out loud many times in this story. Without many spoilers, the situations that the characters find themselves in were nicely orchestrated. Good times.

    Reader: I liked the Scottish burr, but it wasn't consistent. She was pretty monotone and did not use consistence voices for the characters, although sometimes it seemed like she tried. 3 out of 5 for reader, although, she didn't stop me from listening to the story.

    Maddie Faraday's life would be perfect if it weren't for her cheating husband, her suspicious daughter, her gossipy mother, her secretive best friend, her nosy neighbors, and that guy she lost her virginity to 20 years ago.

    In Tell Me Lies, Jennifer Crusie dishes up a funny, sexy, suspenseful novel about small-town secrets, big-time betrayals and the redemptive power of love, laughter and chocolate brownies.

    "didn't finish it:"
    Overall

    Before you read my review, know that I like Jennifer Crusie. She writes super fun books and I have liked most of the books that she has written (of course some more than others). That being said also know that I didn't finish the novel- I couldn't. Maybe someday I will because I own it, but I was not expecting the book that I got. According to the summary, I expected lighthearted, funny, etc. Not so. I didn't laugh once. Nothing that happened was funny to me-- and I got about half way into the book. Cheating on a spouse isn't funny-- especially when a child is involved. Hitting or beating a spouse isn't funny. And I think I was supposed to be glad that the heroine of the story had a "man friend" to comfort her, but I really wasn't. I didn't like the characters. I was so disappointed with the story, that I had to stop reading the book. That is why I gave it a low rating. The reader was great, though. And I will still look forward to Crusie's books. And since this book, I have read some of hers that have hard topics, that she faces well, I just wish I hadn't purchased or read any part of this one.

    Six years ago, witness protection marshal Roland Larson did the unthinkable: he fell in love with a protected witness, Hope Stevens, whose testimony was to put away prominent members of the Romero crime family. When Hope's plan to "cut and run" is interrupted by both the government and the mob, she disappears into a new identity.

    Overall

    I couldn't finish this book for graphic violence (including violence to children). It was super intense, in my opinion, and I REALLY wanted to finish it. But I just couldn't. After every hour or two, I had to turn it off and wash the dishes or something, just so I could feel better. I like the narrator though. So, if you like that sort of thing, happy reading!

    To break a centuries-old curse, beautiful, headstrong Lady Kathleen MacDavid knows she must ignore every rule of propriety by seducing - and marrying - the Earl of Norcroft.

    Overall

    I liked the male narrator . . . but I struggled with listening to the woman. And instead of reading the gender parts, they just switched sections, which disappointed me. After a while, I had to just skip to the end-- I think that if you want to read this story, the old fashioned way might be the best. Happy reading.

    Quinn McKenzie has always lived what she calls a "beige" life. But when Quinn decides to change her life by adopting a stray dog over everyone's objections, everything begins to spiral out of control. Now she's coping with dog-napping, breaking and entering, seduction, sabotage, stalking, and more secrets than she really wants to know.

    Victoria says: "Abridging leaves a lot to be desired."
    "creepy"
    Overall

    I enjoyed this book, but it wasn't the typical Jennifer Crusie book to me. I didn't see much depth in the romantic part of the story. I wasn't really fond of the "hero." He was kind of a jerk, in my eyes-- and didn't really redeem himself and I didn't get why she liked him so much. The other characters were pretty fun, and some of the situations made me smile (which is why I gave the book a relatively high rating). Some situations were kind of intense, which makes for a fun book. Don't want to spoil anything, but I think it was a relatively fun read.

    Narrator was great to my ears!

    A fabulous lost Amazon city once inhabited by women warriors and containing a rare red diamond: it sounded like myth, but archeologist Jillian Sherwood believed it was real, and she was willing to put up with anything to find it - even Ben Lewis. Ruffian, knock-about, and number one river guide in Brazil, Ben was all man - over six feet of rock-hard muscles that rippled under his khakis, with lazy blue eyes that taunted her from his tanned face.

    Judy says: "Really good book!"
    "good times."
    Overall

    I rather enjoyed this story. It was predictable in places, but that didn't get in my way of enjoying it. It reminded me of Romancing the Stone- just a sort of romantic adventure. The characters were pretty fun. Some of them were pretty one- dimensional, some were more deep.

    The narrator kind of bugged me. She read it fine, but the way she pronounced some words (and the Latino names) kind of made me giggle-- and it wasn't supposed to be funny. So, 3 stars for her. But, her reading didn't detract from the story for me.

    When 15-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder - much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It's hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing, not even a smear of blood, to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?

    Teddy says: "2 Stars because it actually gets worse...."
    "wow."
    Overall

    I couldn't "put it down." There is some fun dialog and adventure. Neat monsters and characters. I liked the characterizations and interpretations of mythological creatures. I like the edge that the author took me to- a little uncomfortable, yes, but it was a fun time, none the less. (I don't want to be more specific, so as to not spoil it).

    The narrator was okay. Just to grade her, perhaps 3 stars. The voices weren't very consistent--

    In the charming rural town of Trail Stop, Idaho, accessible to the outside world by only a single road, young widow Cate Nightingale lives peacefully with her four-year-old twin boys, running a bed-and-breakfast. But one day, Cate is shocked when armed men storm the house, demanding the mystery man's belongings.

    I loved this story. It was mostly intense-- a little slow at first, but that was just character development, anyway. I liked the characters, I liked the POV, and I liked the pacing of the story. I liked the two readers . . . their voices were easy to listen to, and it made for a fun read.

Cal Morrisey knows commitment is impossible, especially with a woman as cranky as Min Dobbs. When they say good-bye at the end of their evening, they cut their losses and agree never to see each other again. But Fate has other plans.

    This is a warm fuzzy story. I enjoyed the story, the narrator, and the ending. I recommend this to anyone who like a light, happy story. It has fun voice, funny scenes, and very fun characters. If you're a fan of romance, I think you just might like this story.
