    Spirited Chelsea decided she'd sooner run away to London than return to her vain and selfish guardian Aunt Augusta. But in her wildest dreams, she never imagined her dear godmother would arrange a Season - or convince the town's most eligible bachelor to take her under his wing.

    Where does Runaway Heart rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This audible book was fascinating. I have read the book but truly enjoyed the audible.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Chelsea as she is strong, witty, and comical


    Which character – as performed by Mary Sarah Agliatta – was your favorite?

    I have to say she did them all so well so its hard to say which was my favorite but I will say for sake of review Lady Daisy.


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

    Yes it was again I truly enjoyed it and the narrator brought it to life so well. She spoke each character so strong and comically in places.


    Any additional comments?

    Fantastic Audible Book !

    Story
    If you could sum up Disorderly Lady in three words, what would they be?

    Sassy, Comical, Strong Woman. That is what Bella is. She thinks differently then most women. She loves to be herself and doesn't care who likes it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    That even back centuries ago there were women who wanted to be different that what society called for.


    What does Stevie Zimmerman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I loved how the narrator had the accent that goes with the times and era of the story.


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

    Yes loved it.

    My review.
    We have in this book Sir Brentley of Cullingham and his sister Bella. Both of their parents past away at sea when they were younger. Brent has done all he can in bringing up his sister properly and attending to their estate. But its time he takes his sister to their Aunt Violet for help with giving Bella a season.

    Bella is your typical young woman. She has endured her first heartbreak however and is looking forward actually to what may await her. She is one sassy girl that’s for sure..

    This book is very well written, I love the comical parts given to the characters throughout the story.
    The sexiness, the honor and the strength of family is also brought to the forefront.

    I found myself just cracking up laughing through the book. I totally loved it and I am sure if you love regency with a bit of sexy romance you will love it too so grab a copy and get listening.

    It's Halloween, Leigh's favorite time of the year. As a rookie witch with high hopes, she has a lot to look forward to. When a mysterious supernatural force meddles in her life, things take a turn for the worse. Hunter gets caught in the paranormal crossfire, and his very soul may be at risk. Leigh's job seems to have suddenly gone sour as well. The public school doesn't share this young teacher's enthusiasm for what they deem to be a religious holiday.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Under His Protection to be better than the print version?

    When Ivan and Julietta are in the elevator leaving the bridal shower for Mia and he lets her know he likes her.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Jules takes Ivan to her family's restaurant for the first time and her cousin just keeps giving her evil grins of awareness as Jules has only ever brought one male there before.

    I wanted to strangle River the man who got fired by Jules from her shop.
