    Gunslinger Caden Miller's compadres are becoming a bit too domesticated for his liking. So he's off to Kansas territory to carve out a living and a space of his own - alone, just the way he likes it. Maddie O'Hare has been drawn to Caden ever since she escaped to the Hell's Eight compound from the brothel where she was born and raised. And she's not ready to let him go so easily…until she's captured by his new neighbors.

    I like the Hell's Eight Series, even though I'm not into some of the sex. Historical Westerns are not that plentiful on Audible. I liked this one and I'll probably listen to it again, I just didn't like it as well as the first few, so I only gave it 3 stars. Still, I would buy it again.

    From Melbourne's gleaming skyscrapers to its throbbing nightclubs, Riley Jenson's world is raging with danger and desire. A drop-dead-gorgeous werewolf---with a touch of vamp coursing in her blood---Riley works for an organization created to police the supernatural races.

    Jessica Taggart had come West seeking adventure, and no hard-drinking, easy-living rogue like Jake Weston was going to stop her from finding it - even if it meant being his partner in the Tin Angel, the most notorious brothel on the Barbary coast. Even if that meant she had to resist his sensual seduction.

    Would you listen to Tin Angel again? Why?

    I wish I could find more of these on Audible. I'm so tired of British period romance novels I could...well, I don't know what. This was a great book and I've listened to it many times over the years.


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

    Yes.

    Rafe McCay has a bullet in his side and a bounty hunter on his tail. Since there are few doctors in the Arizona Territory, he takes what he can get. Pointing a gun at Dr. Annie Parker, he abducts her into the mountains so she can tend his wounds. In this dangerous wilderness world, Rafe wakens in Annie a woman's hungry desire, as Annie finds a man wounded in soul as well as body. Her healing touch brings him new hope, but the secrets of the past still pursue them.

    If you could sum up The Touch of Fire in three words, what would they be?

    It's not the lonesome Dove saga, however, it is a good 19th century American romance. I'm so tired of the Regency era, I could just explode.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yessir. I didn't have to hear about Bathe or Whitehall and there were no Lords or Ladies.


    Have you listened to any of Natalie Ross’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yep. Pretty good.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Oh bother, "The doctor and the outlaw." I have no idea. Now if this was a regency novel it would be, "I have no idear".


    Any additional comments?

    Please, let's not all be juvenile and correct my errors. Seriously, this is one I like.

    Stone Creek veterinarian Olivia O’Ballivan communicates easily with animals, but men are another story. Especially rugged architect-turned-rancher Tanner Quinn. Olivia’s uncanny bond with his daughter Sophie’s pony, Butterpie, has him questioning her sanity, while she wonders if he’s not just a drugstore cowboy.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Absolutely. Good books take you into another place for a little while so you can forget about all your problems.


    If you’ve listened to books by Linda Lael Miller before, how does this one compare?

    This one is a little different. A little Dr. Doolittle "y" The story is still fun loving..


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Narrator was fine.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Sure, but then I'm a movie nut, too.


    Any additional comments?

    Unless, you're looking for a typical contemporary Linda book, you'll like it. It has all her charm and a little extra something.

    Five days after Owen Zastava Pitt pushed his insufferable boss out of a 14th story window, he woke up in the hospital with a scarred face, an unbelievable memory, and a job offer. It turns out that monsters are real. All the things from myth, legend, and B-movies are out there, waiting in the shadows. Some of them are evil, and some are just hungry. Monster Hunter International is the premier eradication company in the business. And now Owen is their newest recruit.

    The Lone Texan features Sage McMurray, a recent widow whose life is about to take another unexpected turn. One would think that the loss of a husband was plenty for anyone to deal with, but then Sage is taken hostage in a robbery and auctioned off to the highest bidder. The bidder in question, however, has more than a few surprises in store.

But Meg, as strong, proud, and stubborn as her ancestors on Indian Rock's Triple M ranch, wants to do things her way: the McKettrick way. And Brad feels just as strongly about the O'Ballivan way.

So even he is shocked when he falls for Sally Mae, a Quaker nurse. Unable to resist Tucker's charm, character and chiseled body, she throws herself into their torrid affair, indulging every one of her wildest sexual fantasies.

    to the previous 2 books. The Quaker speech was incorrect and it was really kind of typical when her books aren't usually typical or that predictible at all. That being said, I still would have bought it and will listen to it again. Just not as often as the first book. Sarah M. Hurry up and get the next in the series released!

    On Christmas Eve, while his wife and children sleep, a man awakens to noises outside his house. Looking out the window, he spies landing on his roof St. Nicholas in a sleigh pulled by eight reindeer. The saint enters the house through the chimney. The man watches Nicholas filling the children's stockings hanging by the fire. They share a conspiratorial moment before the saint bounds up the chimney again. As he flies away, Nicholas wishes everyone a happy Christmas.

    The way this was read it almost sounded sinister in the beginning, but maybe it was just me. Suggest you have a sample listen first, before you play it for very young ones.
