    The unrelenting cheer in Fool’s Gold, California, is bringing out the humbug in dancer Evie Stryker. She learned early on that Christmas miracles don’t happen, at least not for her. And this year seems like no exception. An injury has forced her to return to the family fold, no matter that they’re estranged. She won’t add to the awkward scenario by being seduced by the bad-boy charms of her brother’s best friend, the last man she should ever want to date. Even when she’s recruited to stage the Fool’s Gold winter festival, she vows to do as promised, then move forward with her life anywhere but here.

    Story

    I have enjoyed all of the Fool’s Gold books and this book was no disappointment. The relationships in the Stryker family are complicated and imperfect. It was nice seeing the three friends again (Heidi, Charlie and Annabel) and finally meeting Evie. Her relationship with the family is heartbreaking. I love that it wasn’t glossed over nor was a magic wand waived and everything “all better”. As always, it is easy to relate and understand Mallery’s characters. I couldn’t help but fall in love with Dante and Evie. Dante is such a wonderful imperfect hero. I couldn’t help but get mad at him along with the heroine and forgive him along with the heroine. The only down side was the book ended.

    When she used to walk around her grandfather's property outside Portland, Abby Winchell loved the idea that Bigfoot was somewhere out there, too. Now her grandfather swears he's seen two creatures that fit the legendary description - and he has evidence. Sort of. Grandpa Earl may be a bit dotty, but when his neighbors invite a renowned anthropologist to disprove his theory, Abby decides to send the man packing...until she sees how hot he is.

    Story

    This was a much lighter read and not the least bit realistic, but that is what makes it fun. It is like a fun pg-13 movie. Written for a younger audience, or just for the escape. Roark, who is the second son of a prominent New York Pack/family travels north to discredit sitings of Big Foot. However, he is instantly smitten with Abbey, the dreamer in her family. Things heat up when Abbey stumbles across Roark in the woods (with her zoom lens camera). She is surprised when he get naked, then lays down in the forest...then changes into a wolf. The fun just spirals upward from there. Great listen for a bad day! Will certainly bring a ridiculous smile.

    Story

    This story picks up two years after book one (Wife by Wednesday) and is well done! Love the lighthearted romance and “tough as nails” Eliza/Lisa. I also enjoyed the reappearance of characters from book one and I am glad that the characters remained the same (Their personalities didn't change in book 2). I am looking forward to book 3 in August 2013.

    Re Narrator: I haven’t listened to an Eby book that I didn’t enjoy! 

And there’s nothing indecent about this proposal. The money will really help with her family’s medical bills.

    I am glad I listened to other reviewers and tried this book. I was looking for a light fun read, with a perfect happily ever after and this book fit perfectly. Tanya Eby is always a great narrator and does this story justice. I enjoyed this one so much, I rushed and picked up book 2 (Married by Monday) and cannot wait until the 3rd book (Fiancé by Friday) which is due out August 2013.

    I was looking for a light and fluffy romance complete with unrealistic story to make me smile and this book fit the bill perfectly. It is a sweet story of a young woman working hard to handle everything life throws at her. The context could have been dark, but the author did an excellent job of keeping it light. Mixed with the perfect amount of comedy and the best friend. This is complete with everyone living perfectly happily every after. Excellent!!! Downloading book two now. Need Fun for a rainy day? This is the one! Great break from the heavier stuff.

    Prim and proper art gallery coordinator Elle Walser is no good at seducing men. Heck, she's been throwing hints at her boss for months, but he's completely clueless. Desperate to escape her mother's matchmaking efforts, she comes up with a plan - buy some lingerie and climb into her boss' bed. The plan goes brilliantly...until she accidentally seduces a sexy stranger instead. Bad boy nightclub mogul Gabe Schultz just had the best almost-sex of his life. Too bad the smoking hot blonde thought he was his brother and bolted before he could finish what they started.

    Story

    This was an entertaining light listen. I really enjoyed the story. Good girl gets the nerve to try to seduce her boss because he is safe and ends up with his older "bad boy brother". Except the "bad boy brother" really isn't all that bad...in fact he is really kind and considerate- she on the other hand is immature and sometimes irritating. It was certainly geared more for a younger readership. About midway through, I wanted to smack the chick and tell her to grow up and deal with her "mommy" issues. However, despite eliciting violent tendencies toward the female character, it is a fun story. I would love to hear other stories about the supporting characters in this story.

    Story

    Every title I finish in this series leaves me thinking it is better than the last. This was a heartwarming story. The characters are flawed, but redeemable. I enjoyed the strong Georgina (Gina) and how she rose to every occasion. The characters are very relatable. I was outraged that the dummy Earl didn’t even mention that he had two children until they arrived at his home! What a &%^*! However, Gina handles that too and teaches the Earl not only to love, but how to be a father and husband. Great story!

    The other reviewers mention the narrator, but I thought it was fine. I believe a good narrator is one that makes you forget the story is being read and all you see is the story. This is certainly the case with this audible book.

    This book made me want to travel back in time to the Wild West. It was well written and had all of my favorite qualities of a romance. I really enjoyed Angela, who is blind after a childhood illness. However, her blindness doesn’t define her character; in truth, her passion for life is her defining characteristic! I enjoyed the twists and turns. I heartily agree with another reviewer who stated that this book makes you laugh and makes you cry. There is lost love, murder, revenge, justice, and (of course) the happily ever after. It is the first in this series and very enjoyable.

    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 become a true Garwood fan. I have enjoyed her Regency Romances, contemporary romances, and romantic suspense. This novel shows that this author can write romance anywhere and anytime. It was a wonderfully delightful story. I love books with strong females and alpha males and this book has it in humorous abundance. Judith (Elizabeth) is a relatable character with modern twist. I actually found things to do so that I could keep on listening! I’ll agree that the narrator wasn’t the best, but certainly not the worst. The story is great enough that it is easy to overlook the narrator’s shortcoming. This is so worth the credit! Excellent story.

    Kitty Robertson has grown up wealthy and influential, and she's never more at home than when in an English parlor displaying her social graces. When she looks for a husband, of course she seeks a man just as at home in his position - hopefully a lofty one - as she is. Nicholas Glenville, Marquess of Greystone, is just such a man, and she can't help but accept his proposal of marriage. But at the very first ball of the year, she meets an enigmatic, gorgeous duke who asks her for a dance....

    This is a wonderful classic romance. So often romances today feature the female falling in love and her love being unrequited by the male. This is completely different. It is the duke that falls in love at first glance and tries relentlessly to win her affection. The book is filled with twists and turns (some predictable, some not). Certainly enough drama to keep me interested and entertained. Wonderful story and narration. This is one of those stories that I regretted finishing because it is just so wonderful.

Except she’s not so little anymore. And Gabe has waited a long time to act on his desires.
