    Growing up in rural Japan in 1861, Sachi has always felt different, her pale skin setting her apart. When she is 11, a princess passes through her village, sweeping her off to the women's palace in Edo, home to 3000 women and only one man - the young shogun. Sachi is chosen as his concubine. But Japan is changing.

    Although the story is interesting and the narrator is doing a very good job, it gets kind of boring. The reason is that there is very little dialog between the characters. A lot of describing and thinking, but not very much interacting between the characters and that makes me lose interest after a while. Listened through the book though but felt "finally!" when it was done.

    If you want to be toned, lean, and strong as quickly as possible without crash dieting, good genetics, or wasting ridiculous amounts of time in the gym and money on supplements... regardless of your age... then you want to listen to this audiobook. Here's the deal: Getting into great shape isn't nearly as complicated as the fitness industry wants you to believe.

    Finally! A straight forward, from the beginning, no nonsense description on how to train and get fit. I love the no BS attitude and to finally find a way through the diet and training jungle. This was just what I needed and I feel really motivated to start my new, strong and healthier lifestyle. The book is educational as well as getting you very motivated. Read it!!

    Tammy has always tried to be prepared for any calamity life might send her way but she never imagined a sexy, lion man-beast in her future. He’s stalking closer, growling at her, and she’s too terrified to even flee. Valiant hates humans. But when he gets a whiff of the adorable human female who has invaded his territory, he starts rethinking. Her fear scents of pure, sweet temptation and the closer he gets, the more appealing she becomes. Once he’s got his hands on her, he isn’t about to let her go. One thought will change his life. MINE!

    I just LOVE this series! This is what I choose to listen to every time I need to escape the world for a little while. A little suspense, a lot of sizzle, hot alpha males, spunky females combined with a really good narrator makes for a really awesome listen.

    I've read and enjoyed the previous books in this series and thought listening to one would be a good idea. I couldn't finish it and that doesn't happen often! The narrator read fast, hard and with no feeling what so ever! Just terrible. I finished the book reading it the old fashioned way and enjoyed it a lot!

    Lucy Delacourt's temp position isn't quite her dream job but it pays the bills. The highlight of her day is riding the elevator in the mornings with a handsome stranger. Tall, dark, and sexy as hell, Lucy knows he's way out of her league, but a girl can look, right? Everything changes the day the stranger seduces her. Completely out of character, she yields without a fight, but she has no idea her wanton acts with a man whose name she doesn't know will change her life forever. Because the sexy stranger is none other than Jeremiah Hamilton, billionaire CEO of Hamilton Industries, and one taste isn't nearly enough to satisfy his need.

    Story

    This is not the best example of this type of book out there. For me this is an erotic book with some suspense thrown in. The characters are poorly developed and the interaction between them is very one dimensional. I really don't get why they are together in the first place. In my opinion, the only fun character is the brother Lucas. No, if you want some interesting and sexy reading I would suggest Sylvia Day's Crossfire novels. Even E.L. James is better than this.

    I just want a taste of you. Or a touch. My fantasies about you plague my every waking hour. My only comfort is imagining that similar fantasies might obsess you too. When young librarian Gwendolynne Price starts finding increasingly erotic love notes to her in the suggestion box at work, she finds them both shocking and liberating. But who is her mystery admirer and how long will he be content to just admire her from afar...?

    I really love this book for so many reasons. Gwendolynne is fun, spunky and grabs on to life (and love) with both hands. And the book is of course very sexy and sensous. The narrator is doing a superb job and I sincerely hope Audible will publish more of Portia Da Costas books!

    I really liked the idea with the half dragons, I thought that rather original, but unfortunately I was disappointed. The characters were very briefly described and I couldn't really connect with them or the story. The narration was ok though.

    For Mack McKinley and his team of GhostWalker killing machines, urban warfare is an art. But despite a hard-won knowledge of the San Francisco streets, Mack knows from experience that too many things can still go wrong. Danger was just another part of the game--and now he's come face-to-face with a woman who can play just as tough. She's Jaimie, a woman with a sapphire stare so potent it can destroy a man. Years ago she and Mack had a history--volatile, erotic, and electric.

    This book together with Predatory Game is, in my opinion, the best in the series (I've read them all). The story line is filled with suspense and the characters are interesting. The narration by Tom Stechschulte is just phenomenal - I love his voice!

    Half-vampire Catherine Crawfield is going after the undead with a vengeance, hoping that one of these deadbeats is her father—the one responsible for ruining her mother's life. Then she's captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unlikely partnership. In exchange for help finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She's amazed she doesn't end up as his dinner…are there actually good vampires?

    Stephenie says: "Great series. Worth every credit."

    Oh how I liked this book! It is witty, sexy and has a heroine with a kick-ass attitude. The narrator did a great job and the two main characters turned out to be more complex than I had thought. Please Audible - make the second book available soon!

    One beautiful, breezy day, Brianna Daniel's hot air balloon joyride turns into "gone with the wind", as she is somehow blown back to the year 1860. Bumping along the road to the Split Rock pony express station as a mail-order bride to Lucas Daniels, Brianna realizes that she has exchanged lives with her great-grandmother, Anna.
