    A summer at his grandparents' South Dakota ranch is not 11-year-old Cooper Sullivan's idea of a good time. But things are a bit more bearable now that he's discovered the neighbor girl, Lil Chance, and her homemade batting cage. Even horseback riding isn't as awful as Coop thought it would be. Each year, with Coop's annual summer visit, their friendship deepens from innocent games to stolen kisses, but there is one shared experience that will forever haunt them: the terrifying discovery of a hiker's body.

    This is classic Nora Roberts. She has done a few books along this line, but can still may the story fresh and new make you feel for the people. You have a feeling how it will end, but you have to keep reading/listening. You need to know every twist and turn of the plot. It is a great job on her part and i think this will be one of here lifetime movies. lol The narrater is great too giving life to the people. Drawing you in with a smooth voice, making for easy listen.

    When pro baseball player Chase Walker first meets Amanda at her restaurant, it's love at first sight. While Amanda can't help noticing the superstar with the Greek-god build, he doesn't have a chance of getting to first - or any other - base with her. A successful entrepreneur who built her business from scratch, Amanda doesn't need a Prince Charming to sweep her off her feet. And a curvy girl who likes to cook and eat isn't interested in being around the catty, stick-thin herd of females chasing Chase and his teammates.

    The book was smartly written, funny, with a hint of kink that was not over done. The hero is in love at first sight, even with snarky comments coming his way. I loved the book because he went for the curvy girl and made her believe and want more. The book left me wanting more from Stephanie Evanovich.

    Nexi Ketts has reinvented herself-new name, new look, new life. She makes her living catching corporate cheats - partial atonement for dear old dad's embezzling ways. A fling with a handsome cop ends badly when he tries to kill her. She flees, naked, causing a fender bender, and making it damn hard for Detective Barry Gerton to think clearly.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I have already told people about a great new start to a series. It was fun read how Nexi would get out of the next scrape she had. Even though it wasn't her fault she had kills after her. It kind of puts me in mind of a Stephanie Plum book, and they do referrance Stephanie Plum in the book. I more see Barry as Joe than Ranger as he said in the book. He is too sweet of a guy to be a Ranger.

    Jace Warden is sent to the Shiftertown in Austin to find a way to free all Shifters from their Collars. But pulling off the Collars can cause Shifters to go mad or kill them outright. In Austin, Jace meets Deni Rowe, a wolf Shifter with troubles of her own-she was deliberately run down in the road, and while her body has healed, she still has episodes of total memory loss during which she retreats into her pure animal self.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Feral Heat to be better than the print version?

    I like them equally. You can swift back and forth with no looking for where you are in the story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I have been waiting for Jace's story and am sorry it was so short. Also I feel bad for Deni and what happened to her.


    What does Cris Dukehart bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Just life to the characters that I like.


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

    Yes

    John Parker-Roth cannot believe that marriage is necessary for his happiness. He would far rather pursue his interest in horticulture, but if one day he should find a female who shared his passion for flowers - a level-headed, calm sort of female - he might reconsider. Certainly the lovely young woman who has just tumbled into his lap will not do, as she possesses neither of those admirable qualities. Yet Miss Margaret Peterson does have many things in her favor.

    If you could sum up The Naked Gentleman in three words, what would they be?

    Just read it


    What other book might you compare The Naked Gentleman to and why?

    I don't know the Hellions of Halstead hall series, or the Sherbrook bride books.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The performer sound like she was biting her tongue and lisping with Emma and it makes it hard to listen to the book.


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

    I hate to say it but I got the book on kindle and audible and just had to read the book. The book is a great read in one sitting if you can.


    Any additional comments?

    I have loved the series had gotten some in paper back years ago, but loved seeing them in audio format.

    Homicide detective Angela Keen thrives on the city’s rough streets. But when she becomes the prize of all prizes in the dragon-shifter world, due to her “high-energy” status, she gets more than she bargained for. Kidnapped by Lothair of the Razorback clan, Angela barely survives captivity before managing to escape. Hurt and alone with nowhere to hide, she faces certain death when Lothair uses the trace energy she leaves in her wake to hunt her down. But before he can reach her, a mystery dragon-shifter intervenes and saves Angela’s life.

    So I have been looking at these books for a while now and not knowing the author just passing them up, but a brought them because I was short on credits and they were cheap. I am so glad I did they are really good and can't wait for the next one. You kind of know who it is going to be about, but you still need to know what happens to the people you have got to know in the first two books. The dragons are so hot you wouldn't mind being there dinner, your still alive and happy as a clam. What more could you ask for.

    Michelle Sanderson may appear to be a strong, independent woman, but on the inside, she’s still the wounded girl who fled home years ago. A young army vet, Michelle returns to the quaint Blackberry Island Inn to claim her inheritance and recover from the perils of war. Instead, she finds the owner’s suite occupied by the last person she wants to see. Carly Williams and Michelle were once inseparable, until a shocking betrayal destroyed their friendship. And now Carly is implicated in the financial disaster lurking behind the inn’s cheerful veneer.

    Plagued by a war between magic and technology, Atlanta has never been so deadly. Good thing Kate Daniels is on the job. Kate Daniels may have quit the Order of Merciful Aid, but she's still knee-deep in paranormal problems. Or she would be if she could get someone to hire her. Starting her own business has been more challenging than she thought it would be - now that the Order is disparaging her good name, and many potential clients are afraid of getting on the bad side of the Beast Lord, who just happens to be Kate's mate.

    I now own all the tittles in this series and they keep getting better with each book. They build on each other and change things as they go along. The writing make it hard to wait for the next book.You fly through the book then have to wait a year for the next, but they are worth the wait. I can't wait to see what happens with Kate next year. It is like family you only see once a year and miss them dearly. Please speed up the writing, but keep the quality of the writing as well.
