    Nora Sutherlin is in handcuffs, held captive by two men. Under different circumstances, she would enjoy the situation immensely, but her captors aren't interested in play. As the reality of her impending peril unfolds, Nora becomes Scheherazade, buying each hour of her life with stories - sensual tales. This, Nora realizes, is her life: nothing so simple, so vanilla, as a mere love triangle for her. It's a knot in a silken cord, a tangled mass of longings of the body and the heart and the mind. And it may unravel at any moment.

    Story

    If you listened to the first books, I recommend that you read The Mistress. The narration is all wrong. Adult characters are given child-like voices and the Irish accent is the worst I have ever heard.

    What disappointed you about A Gentleman's Wager?

    I understand that when I read this genre that I not going to fine great literature, but could we have a little character development. I love HOT HOT sex but I do like the book to include a story. I also like to care about a least one character. I didn't like anyone in this book. Don't be fooled by other reviews . . . there are far better books for your listening pleasure.

    Story

    The concept of this story is not bad; it’s just that the female protagonist thinks and talks like a very, very young teenager. I found this immature point of view extremely annoying. This book is really designed for teenagers, but the sex scenes are too explicit for that age group. I do not recommend this book.

    Sienna's dreams lie in California, but when she discovers her grandmother's Nashville home has been foreclosed, she has no other choice than to move back to Music City, where she comes face-to-face with the flawed, gorgeous man she never thought she'd see again - and who now holds the deed to her grandma's estate. Millionaire rock star Lucas Wolfe is just as surprised to find the outspoken redhead glaring at him from across a courtroom. He still can't get the night Sienna spent with him out of his mind, and the chemistry between them is as undeniable as ever.

    I liked this book, but I couldn't help being a little disappointed after first reading the novella that leads into this book. The novella told the story from both characters point of review, this book only told the story from woman's side.

    Escaping a cheating ex, finance whiz Sara Dillon's moved to New York City and is looking for excitement and passion without a lot of strings attached. So meeting the irresistible, sexy Brit at a dance club should have meant nothing more than a night's fun. But the manner - and speed - with which he melts her inhibitions turns him from a one-time hookup into her Beautiful Stranger.

    His name is Rafer Callahan. He was a kid from the wrong side of the tracks who fought through life the only way he knew how: with his fists. But Rafer never meant to bring any harm to Cambria Flannigan, the girl—the lover—whose sister he’d been unable to save…. Cami lost her sister in the brutal murders that rocked her hometown so many years ago. Some still believe that Rafe, along with his friends Logan and Crowe, were involved. But how could Rafe—who haunted her girlish dreams, then her adult fantasies—be a killer?

    Story

    I am not sure if the author thought her readers couldn't remember what the story was about, or if she needed to remind herself. I have never read or listened to a book that repeated and repeated what had already happened. I get that most romance books are not great literature, but its readers are not dim witted.

    The sex scenes are hot, but again the scenes are rehashed. First from his point of review, then her point of review and then again.

    I have enjoyed Lora Leigh's other books, but this one made me crazy.

    This is a short story that seems to take place before "The Siren". A very exciting listen. Very hot. Kingsley is sex!

    Audible please bring "Little Red Riding Crop" and "Seven Day Loan" to the Audible collection -- while we wait for the 4th book in the series "The Mistress".

    There is nothing Connor Malone wants to do less than babysit the outrageous and out-of-control pop star Lyric Jones. But part of him relishes taming the celebratty songstress and showing her what it's like to be possessed - body and soul - by one man. And though Lyric's crazy antics nearly drive Connor to the edge, his quiet intensity penetrates her defenses, leaving them both vulnerable to the secrets that could topple Lyric from the stage.

    Infamous erotica author and accomplished dominatrix Nora Sutherlin is doing something utterly out of character: hiding. While her longtime lover, Søren - whose fetishes, if exposed, would be his ruin - is under scrutiny pending a major promotion, Nora's lying low and away from temptation in the lap of luxury. Her host, the wealthy and uninhibited Griffin Fiske, is thrilled to have Nora stay at his country estate, especially once he meets her traveling companion.

    This is a great listen. Parts of the story will make you squirm in your seat (or bed), but that just makes it better. Different narrator than the first book. Took me less than 5 minutes to get use to the new voice. Both books in the series will take you away, making is hard to turn them off. Both narrators were great.

    When reformed bad girl Maria Lewis takes a dull job in local government back in her home town, the quiet life she was looking for is quickly disrupted by the enigmatic presence of her boss, Director Robert Stone. A dangerous and unlikely object of lust, Stone touches something deep in Maria's sensual psyche and draws her to an erotic underworld, a far cry from life in the dusty offices of Borough Hall.

    Lots of one-on-one sex. The story line is very weak and the characters are not very believable. The only reason I was able to finish listening was because it was short. This is likely to be my last book by this author.
