    What made the experience of listening to Unchosen the most enjoyable?

    When Freddie shows back up in Boston after having left with Teagan and the other guys to go back to Ireland.

    Nick. She did a great job with the southern drawl of this character.

    I wanted to do both at various times. Lizzie has gone through hell and seems she still is going through it .

    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.

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

    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.
