    Bad boy Jonas Wyatt knows it is fate that Rachel becomes his mate. He can sense it. He can also sense her reluctance. But she has little power over the mating heat of the Breeds. It is Jonas's destiny to claim her. And nothing will stop him from having his way.

    Story

    I loved this story, and Brianna Bronte did a wonderful job with the narration, I have listened to it twice. The interaction with Leo was priceless. I would love to see the other stories in audio format and can't wait for Lawe Justice and Rule Breaker's story.

    Please get the rest of the Breed's stories in audio.

    The last thing Lord Nicholas Kincaid expected to see in the gloom of a London tavern was a vision of loveliness. And when she led him to a bedchamber with a come-hither smile, there was no question of resisting - until he realized the lying wench meant to render him senseless so the landlord could rob him blind!

    Story

    I love Jane Feather's books but take my advice read this one. I wanted to listen to this series but the narration is so poor it's painful. I could not tell who was speaking, the male and female voices were the same, at times it became confusing, so I just stopped. Audible should take more care when committing an entire series to a bad narrator.

    Christina Bennett had taken London society by storm. The ravishing beauty guarded the secret of her mysterious past until the night Lyon, Marquis of Lyonwood, stole a searching, sensuous kiss. An arrogant nobleman with a pirate's passions, he tasted the wildfire smoldering beneath Christina's cool charm and swore to possess her.... But the feisty and defiant Christina would not be so easily conquered. Mistress of her heart and of her fortune, she resisted Lyon's sensuous caresses.

    I was not impressed with previous Robyn Carr historical romance books, but I took a chance on this one and I was not disappointed. The narrator was perfect, the story moves quickly and the romance had just enough heat.

    If you like historical romance you will enjoy this one it's a easy read.

    Country bred Lucy Craddock-Hayes is content with her quiet life, until the day she trips over an unconscious man - a naked unconscious man - and loses her innocence forever. Viscount Simon Iddesleigh was nearly beaten to death by his enemies. Now he's hell-bent on vengeance. But as Lucy nurses him back to health, her honesty startles his jaded sensibilities - even as it ignites a desire that threatens to consume them both. Yet as his honor keeps him from ravishing her, his revenge sends his attackers to her door.

    Story

    I love Elizabeth Hoyt books and have most of them in audio so I can't understand why a publisher/producer would take a series and go with an inexperience narrator. When will they understand that an experienced narrator makes the difference in whether a book is tolerable or great.

    This narrator has a child-like voice and I could not tell who was speaking. I got through 7 chapters and had to shut it off. I so wanted to listen to all the Prince series but I will go with the written word. Rosalyn Landor, Anne Flosnik, Kate Reading or any of the experienced narrators would have done this justice.

    Don't waste your credit.

    In Night Fire, Arielle Leslie is a 16-year-old forced to wed Paisley Cochrane, a sadistic old man who abuses her. When he dies, she believes herself free. But she’s not. Burke Drummond, Earl of Ravensworth, a young man she’d worshipped three years before, is home from the wars, and he wants her. Together they face problems and obstacles never spoken of in the Regency time.

    This is the first in a series, but all the books are stand-a-lone. This is not the best in the series but a good listen. The narrator is excellent. But for my recommendation read the other two first, you won't be sorry.

    April 1831, her grace Corinne Monroe wants her widowed son, Lord Julian, to marry her best friend’s daughter, Miss Sophie Wilkie. Julian last saw Sophie when she was twelve years old, silent, skinny, and always staring at him. However, his mother is nothing if not persuasive, and Julian reluctantly accompanies her to London to meet the young lady. And he knows that whatever happens isn’t going to be good. Lord Devlin Monroe, Julian’s nephew, is very fond of his intriguing reputation in society: he delights, he frightens, he brings on delicious shudders. He’s enjoying a pleasant bachelor life....

    Anne Flosnik, performance was outstanding, but even with that said she at times seemed eager to finish this boring dribble.

    I used to be excited when I saw a new Coulter historical romance but after the Valcourt Heiress, and now this one, I am done. For those of you like me who enjoyed the Bride Series and the Magic Trilogy, this has absolutely none of that appeal. It's not really a romance and the suspense aspect is thread bare. To say that it is a Sherbrooke novel, is a poor attempt to get those of us that enjoyed that series to buy this book.

    Isabelle Martinez was instantly fascinated by the sexy Coyote Breed she met at the bar, but her sensual flirtation with him was cut short when she saw the man who'd attacked her arrive at the bar. Breed enforcer Malachi Morgan was entranced by Isabelle's mix of shyness and boldness, and he was determined to chase and play with his sensual prey. But he could tell she'd been hurt before by a man, and he vowed that Isabelle was now his to protect and love, even as if it meant going against her family and his orders.

    I loved this short story, and Briana Bronte is for me the voice of The Breeds. Yes it has explicit sex scenes, but unlike death and taxes you do not have to either listen or read books of this nature, if you choose to then please do not take the moral high ground and complain as it reeks of Hypocrisy.

    I love the breed series and would eagerly buy the earlier books i.e. Tempting the Beast, The Man Within and Elizabeth's Wolf in audio format.

    Thanks Audible for bringing them aboard,.
