    Garwood once again created outstanding characters and their banter is the best element of the book. Heather Wilds is an EXCEPTIONAL narrator and is only second to Kate Reading in my opinion. This book is not as good as The Bride, but is still great and credit worthy. If you enjoy Garwood's characters then you will like these as well. I actually liked the first half of the book much better than the last half. The first half had me laughing and crying. Then it seemed to slightly flatten out, but I still enjoyed it very much.

To save her wards from a vicious blackmailer, she dares to enter the laird’s castle, claiming to be the wife he’d recently wed. But no such wife exists! The brooding Jules invented a bride to silence his well-meaning, matchmaking friends, so he never expected her to arrive on his doorstep. He is suspicious of this beautiful stranger, but he’s also steadfast, courageous, and effortlessly seductive.

    Gerri Russell does a great job creating stories that are different than the usual romance. Once again she has a different plot that keeps you interested and wanting to see how everything plays out.

    Claire & Jules's relationship is so ... Well...I don't know .... I just liked them so much. She is a strong woman and is a real challenge for the stubborn Jules.

    We get to se some of our favorite characters from "A Laird for Christmas" and they make this book that much more enjoyable.

    Read this series...and let's hope more books are to come. This is a fabulous romance!

    After her father and brother disappeared, Lady Jane Lennox is managing Bellhaven Castle. Nonetheless, her aunt has invited six suitors to compete for the right to her hand - and to protect Bellhaven's towers of cool, pink-gray stone. Among the six is Nicholas Kincaid, the one-time object of Jane's affection. Two years ago, her brother banished Nicholas. A mere "sir," in want of title or land, Nicholas was not marriage material. Now, Nicholas will have the chance to compete in challenges of wit and skill, rather than heraldry.

    Bachelorette in historical Scotland....very different start to a book...6 suitors...how could a girl choose?

    Loved this book, because it was so different from most that I have read recently. The storyline with six suitors competing to be Lady Jane's husband. There was excitement, danger, & love.

    I enjoyed all the characters and hope to see all of them in future books. The plot and characters were really well developed.

    Buy this book...it's really inexpensive and save your credits for more expensive books.

    This is a PG romance book. If you are looking for steamy love scenes...this is not the book for you. If you want a hero and heroine that want to deny their feelings until they can deny no more....then this IS the book for you.

    The author tries to use alcoholism as a issue in the relationship...but she doesn't use it to make the book too serious where it brings you down. Which is obviously not the way alcoholism usually plays out in people's lives....but it's a fiction romance book.

    I usually don't like male narrators but I really enjoyed this one. James Langton is the best male narrator I have heard yet.

    This book is a good easy listen....It is a cheap book so it is worth the price. I wouldn't use a credit simply because it is cheap.

    Like the narrators voice. He's not great but he's good.

    This story is kind of cheesy at times. I liked it at times and then others I found myself bored.

    The plot is fine...but it isn't developed too well.

    The romance didn't inspire any special feelings or reactions.

    The male lead was too much of a wuss when it came to Mora...just too over the top sweet....not manly enough for my taste.

    It's not credit worthy...but I would buy it on sale...which is how I got it.

    Teresa, Dowager Marchioness of Darent, is rumored to have exhausted her four deceased husbands with her insatiable needs. So it’s no surprise that every rake in the ton wants to bed her. If they only knew… through clever marriages to men who would ask nothing of her physical self, Tessa has remained rather innocent in the ways of the bedroom. But now she’s on the verge of losing everything and wants to take care of the stepson she’s grown to adore. Enter Captain Owen Purchase.

    Credit worthy for sure. A real sweet and sensual romance....with an American "knight in shining armor"

    I laughed....held my breath....got misty eyed...and cursed the characters.

    Book three in Monica McCarty's USA Today bestselling Highland Guard Trilogy, of which Publishers Weekly raved, "Readers who deplore wallpaper historicals will appreciate not only the romance but McCarty's efforts to go beyond the superficialities of historical Scotland." Embedded deep behind enemy lines, Arthur “Ranger” Campbell is prized for his razor-sharp senses and his ability to blend into the shadows. But when Arthur infiltrates the clan of the chieftain who murdered his father, his heart is locked on revenge. Inside he faces unexpected resistance from the sweetest of obstacles—a honey-haired siren who is his enemy’s daughter.

    While I liked the characters on their own....I just couldn't get into the relationship. I found I didn't care if they got together or not. The best part is the interaction between the Highland Guard guys... But I listened to most of this on double speed. Still moving on to the next in the series because I enjoyed the first 2 books in the series....maybe this book was just a bump in the series road for me.

    I absolutely LOVED this book! It was a perfect...."I don't want to think, just want to hear a good sweet romance" kinda book. I was THRILLED that the main characters actually started the real romance in the first to middle part of the book instead of the last 20 minutes like so many other books seem to do. You get to enjoy Vincent and Grace's relationship as it blossoms. The plot is a little different than most of these historical romances and I was interested in the plot aside from the romance as well.

    There were moments I got teary eyed, moments when I burst out laughing, and moments of frustration (but thankfully very few of those). This book was better than Silent Revenge but I also loved Silent Revenge.

    Sarah Coomes does a fine job. She is a good narrator...maybe not great, but I don't think she takes away from the book at all.

    I would listen to this book again.

    CREDIT WORTHY ---- YES!!!!! BUT it is so inexpensive I would buy it and as CAROLYN says "save your credits for a more expensive book"

    A Marriage of Convenience: Such is the agreement forged between Lady Jessica Stanton and Simon Warland, Earl of Northcote. Jessica needs a husband strong enough to protect her inheritance from her avaricious stepbrother. Simon needs money to restore the family legacy his father squandered. United by necessity, emotional attachment isn’t part of the deal.

    First off narration is excellent....Rosalyn Landor is one of the best.

    This book had me hooked from the first....once Jessica met Simon...I wanted to call in sick for work so I could just listen! Well developed characters and an interesting twist makes this a completely enjoyable romance. While there are love scenes...they are PG-13 so no one should be offended.

    My biggest complaint for this book is that it could have been longer...it just ended too soon!

    It is highly credit worthy...BUT at $9.79 ...just buy it and save a credit....just get it! Its sweet, heartwarming, romantic, touching, ....LOVED IT!!!

But more than duty stirs his blood when he first sees Ariane. She has known only coldness from men - and a betrayal so deep it all but killed her soul. Wanting no man, trusting no man, speaking only through the sad songs she draws from her harp, Ariane comes to Simon an unwilling bride.

    Thank goodness Anne Flosnik is back!
    This book focuses on Simon and his bride Ariane but all the characters you have come to love are fairly prevalent in this book....that I loved.

    I was immediately hooked and didn't want to put this book down. Not quite as good as Untamed (book 1) and WAY BETTER than Forbidden (book 2)

    It is romantic and sweet...AND FRUSTRATING!!! But still a great romance that won't disappoint, but I would have liked to see a bit more after the big "finale"... a better epilogue.

    Wow...did I miss Anne Flosnik. The narration in this book was not that great. It was a real let down after Anne Flosnik's outstanding performance in the first and third books in the series.
    I felt like this book was a let down when compared to the first and last book. It seemed like there was no real story. There was romance and it was good, but the story lacked so much substance. I never really got enthralled in the story like I did in the first and third books. It seemed like the book was just ..."nobody can touch Amber but one person" over and over and over. I almost didn't even care about the outcome. I was pretty bored.
    Within minutes of listening to the first and third book I did't want to pause them. The second book just didn't deliver...but it is ESSENTIAL! And I don't consider it a waste of time...just not up to par.
    The trilogy as a whole is outstanding...with a little weak spot in the middle!
