    Story

    I usually read a lot of historical romance but since there was a 4.95 sale, I ended up buying a few books off of the romance list and this was one of them. Though not a huge fan of modern romance, I actually really enjoyed this book. S London is very funny and I caught myself laughing out loud throughout the story. A very light and entertaining book, although love got introduced very quickly. Regardless, it is definitely worth a credit even without a sale.

    Story

    Love the tenderness and the understanding the heroine shows to the hero and his daughter. Her character actually seems to mature quickly through the story and her kind nature draws readers in. After reading the first book in the series I thought I would stay away from this series but then I saw the reviews and thought to give this book a shot. Again as with MW’s writing, she tends to repeat the same thoughts a few times, yes completely irritating. For instance I believe she repeated the fact that the hero wore black seven years after his wife died about three times within the first 1/3 of the book. You just want to yell out and say, I GET IT. He needs new cloths. Move on. But then the story gets much better and you tended not to mind as much her mind babbling. The narrator’s performance is not great since all men sound the same and all women have the exact same voice but she did better with this book than with the first book in the series.

    For nearly six centuries I have roamed the night, a mortal man no longer. Would that I could undo the past -- when I entered the sanctuary of the Knights Templar to wrest from them the Holy Grail, only to discover the chalice I raised to my lips was not the sacred relic but a hellish cup of damnation. Now I shun the day and all things human, driven by an ungodly thirst. And yet...

    Story

    Great vampire story and pleasantly unexpected. The story is about a vampire who has not allowed himself to love in over six centuries only to fall in love with someone who is not only very sick but dying. Tormented by the thought of the “beast” he has become he cannot imagine turning her in order to save her. The story shows his inner struggles and her family’s constant and unwavering support and hope for a miracle to save her life. The twist at the end leaves the book open for the future adventures to come in the next books of the series. I liked this book very much and am sure you will too. It will thrill you and romance you and leave you wanting and asking for more.

    Story

    What can I say about this book that is different from Blackmoore. I also LOVED this book. It’s hard not to completely fall in love with the main characters. As with Blackmore, the heroine is the one being pursued but in this story, the love is not based on years of familiarity. This is a deep and instant connection ignited not by simple physical attractions but also personality traits that make the attraction and love long lasting and not fleeting. This book also takes you through a roller coaster of emotions. I cried during one scene when she felt unwanted and I never really cry with books. This should tell you how wonderfully her despair was depicted. I feel like I am not doing this book justice by my inadequate review but I promise you will not be disappointed by this book. It WILL touch your heart.

    This was my first book by Julianne Donaldson and I will buy any other books offered after this by audible. Her characters are very well developed and every scene has a relevance to the storyline. I always like to have romance mixed with passion in a book and although this book did not have physically passionate scenes, the emotional ones were enough to set me on fire. The hero’s personality is firm and strong and commanding and ... yet so soft and gentle. The way he expresses his feelings with each proposal when the heroine does not suspect herself to be the truly intended made my heart break for him a little each time. As a reader you will truly feel all the wonderful emotions in this story. This will be a great purchase and a memorable book, one you will re-listen to over and over. A+++++

    Story

    I truly enjoyed this book even though I found the heroine exasperating at times. The book tried to depict her as a strong character and a hero who actually fell in love with her regardless of what the times demanded of an obedient woman and wife. She was never able to hold her tongue and was very opinionated and headstrong. I don’t mind opinionated and headstrong but when it is combined with thoughtfulness. I found her to be very spoiled and without much diplomacy in handling tough situations. The spoiled part of her personality is what allowed her to push every situation to the max without worries about consequences. She was then shocked when she discovered an unsuitable match was made for her and without her consent in order to remove her from her clan. She did not seem to address issues maturely and with thought which is what got her in trouble so frequently. She eventually shows flickers of maturity toward the end of the book though.

    I found the hero to be self assured and confident and sweet. His character was very likable and as that of the heroine well developed. I was pleasantly surprised.

    Story

    I normally do not read books about shape shifters but am not against reading them. I saw that this book was being offered on sale, as well as a few others, and so I purchased it. After having read it, I agree with the other Audible reviewers that a 4 rating is perfect for this book, though just ever so slightly generous.

    I did not find the narrator to be the best or even one of the better ones I have heard before. Her breathing/gasping and the strong intake of air at the end of each pause throughout the book was somewhat distracting.

    The story itself was very good but the main characters were not very well developed. There is much that is not explained in this book but at least I found the hero and heroine to be very likable characters. The hero seemed to be ruthless at times, especially at the very end thinking he would kill a woman if she did not accept money to give up her parental rights, so that he and the heroine could keep the child. The secondary characters were not developed at all.

    Although this book was much better than I expected, after reading this story I find that I gave no thoughts to this book at all once I was done. The appeal necessary to make a book unforgettable or memorable were definitely lacking but it was still entertaining.

    Story

    This is a book about a girl who runs away from her parents at 18 and tries to make it on her own. She plays a guitar in train stations to earn some money to eat and sleeps in shelters to survive the nights. In her attempt to get a tattoo she meets the hero who then helps her get off the streets. Their love is cute and simple and the story a bit predictable but I still enjoyed listening to it. I like the deaf hero, the brothers who would do anything for each other and their determination to help their sick brother. A short story of about 6 hrs.

    Story

    In general I really enjoyed the book. The narrator can not do a good job for the hero’s British accent to save her life. Aside from that the heroine’s character is very weak to the point it gets quite frustrating all throughout the book. The heroine gets cut off by her father to teach her a lesson and throughout the book we see her struggles to stay afloat. There are days where she supposedly has no money to even eat and yet she continues to pay a cell phone bill when her ex (the freeloader) takes her phone with him. Oh yes and when the freeloader comes by he always manages to eat a sandwich when she can't find anything to eat herself. Yah Right!!! And she can’t say see ya???? Super weak character. Not sure how anyone with that personality type can ignite passion in a very confident, very handsome James Bond type character but then I guess that’s where I am wrong.

    Other supporting characters were not too well developed and the hero’s background is not well explained. Some explanation is given but not that in depth.

    Overall the story was good, if you can overlook her personality, and I loved the hero’s character. The book is written in Julia London’s style. So if you are a fan and are not the type to get peaked by character flaws and white magic then go for it, otherwise read some of her other books.

    Story

    As a woman who was also physically abused during a short-lived marriage, I was not forewarned well enough before reading this book. The story hit too close to home for me but I only found myself in short spurts of tension before I was relieved.

    This was my first book with magical creatures and ghosts and yet I found myself enjoying those parts greatly. I was glad to see that the heroine was not depicted as a strong, self sufficient, self-reliant blah, blah, blah, after she left her abusive husband. That would have completely ruined it for me. The story was very believable with true fears and weaknesses shown by the heroine. It was a wonderful mixture of love, suspense, and heartfelt emotional ups and downs. What a ride.

    I have always LOVED LK books, but I admit the stories usually have a darker side to them. Characters are never perfect and may even have a physical challenge. Not so here. The hero has done some things in the past he is not proud of, but it is all in the past.
    Both the hero and heroine are loyal, sweet and giving making it very easy as a reader to fall in love with them. As always you will also enjoy well developed supporting characters in addition to a main animal, in this case a bull, as depicted in the cover. If you enjoy LK, NB duo, this book will not disappoint.
