    Rory MacLeod is a bold and powerful Highland Chief with only one allegiance-to his clan. He vows revenge against the rival MacDonald clan, though duty demands a handfast marriage to Isabel MacDonald-a bride he does not want and has no intention of keeping. But Rory couldn't have anticipated the captivating woman who challenges his steely control and unleashes the untamed passion simmering beneath his fierce exterior.

    Would you try another book from Monica McCarty and/or Antony Ferguson?

    Never will I try another of Monica McCarty's books. I was looking forward to a great story of romance, mystery, with a peppering of history. I was expecting to loose myself in a bygone era. What I got was nothing less than pornography. I am not a prude by any stretch, however; when the physical descriptions of the individuals and the states of physical anatomical discomfort and or desire is so often repeated, emphasized, and then regurgitated it completely negates the story. I shall not finish this book. The first hour was so just plain BAD


    Has Highlander Untamed turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I really like this genre. I have found much better story tellers


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    He was fine. He just had nothing to work with.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not a single one.

    If you haven't already fallen in love with the internationally acclaimed M.C. Beaton, then this audiobook filled with her trademark wry wit and a wonderfully puzzling plot will do the trick.

    I really wanted one of the performer of the first 12 books. Barring that, a Hamish MacBeth story really NEEDS a male reader. Maybe I am just spoiled, but; . . . that is my opinion.
    Don't get me wrong, th reader of this book did a great job with the Outlander series. But she is a poor choice for the hardcore Hamish fans like me.

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    The giant Highlander is a self-proclaimed bachelor who has sworn for years that there isn't a woman in all of Scotland worth shaving his beard for, and for good reason. Years ago, after a bonny young lass broke his heart and left his dignity in shreds, he swore never again to put it in such peril. As a testament to his sincerity, he vowed never again to shave his beard. Then he met her.

    Dixie Hemingway is a pet sitter for some of Florida's most pampered pets. But when she happens upon a man drowned in a cat's water bowl, Dixie's sleuthing powers from her time as a deputy sheriff return full-force. And as more bodies keep turning up, she'd better find out whodunit.

    Where does Curiosity Killed the Cat Sitter rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is a good listen save for the horrific editing. Unbelievably poor and distracting.


    What didn’t you like about Julia Gibson’s performance?

    Although she handles the material quite well, if she had any say in the audio production she should at least listen to the finished production and voice object to poor qualitiy.


    Any additional comments?

    If you can forgive too long pauses and run-on chapter sequences the material is worth it. Maybe, if it is possible, ebook form may be less annoying.

    An electromagnetic pulse flashes across the sky, destroying every electronic device and killing billions. Alex hiked into the woods to say good-bye to her dead parents and her personal demons. Now desperate to find out what happened after the pulse crushes her to the ground, Alex meets up with Tom, a young soldier, and Ellie, a girl whose grandfather was killed by the EMP. For this improvised family and the others who are spared, it's now a question of who can be trusted and who is no longer human.

    What did you like best about Ashes? What did you like least?

    From the begining the narrator sounded as if she was yelling the entire story. When I adjusted the volume, the way she spoke and her intonation still gave the impression of yelling.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    See above


    Any additional comments?

    I will avoid this narrator from now on.

    Hannah Payne awakens to a nightmare. She is lying on a table in a bare room, covered only by a paper gown, with cameras broadcasting her every move to millions at home. She is now a convicted criminal, and her skin color has been genetically altered. Her crime, according to the State of Texas: the murder of her unborn child, whose father she refuses to name. Her color: red. The color of newly shed blood.

    What did you like about this audiobook?

    No one


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    Probably not


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    It was dull and flat.


    Do you have any additional comments?

    A very poor retelling of the Scarlet Letter. It had potential; however, it missed the mark on all points.
