    Melanie Winters and Daniel Montgomery shared a love they believed bonded them together for life. After a tragic loss, overwhelming grief and misguided guilt distorts the truth, and their relationship ends in unanswered questions. For nine years, they drift through life, each unable to forget the one who holds their heart. Now, when their lives again intersect, will the power that drew them together be enough to heal the wounds from their past?

    Story

    Teens ! If you love a sugary, long and drawn out painful romance, narrated and over acted in a superbly teen pitched voice (Andi Arndt), then this is the audible book for you. You will love it.
    Adults !! Leave it on the 'shelf' so to speak, and save your credit.

    Hurtled back through time more than two hundred years to 1743 Scotland, Claire Randall finds herself caught in the midst of an unfamiliar world torn apart by violence, pestilence, and revolution and haunted by her growing feelings for a young soldier, James Fraser.

    Story

    Diana Gabaldon is a top notch writer. Her Outlander series grabs your imagination and will not let you go until you have listened to the very last book and the very last word. Narrator Davina Porter is a joy to listen to. All the different voices she uses are pure magic and her scottish accent is undeniably the best of the best.
    Now I have a problem in finding a book that can give me the interest, satisfaction and the magic that the Outlander series gave me. Oh, and did I say that I have fallen deeply in love with Jamie Fraser even though I know that Claire is the perfect wife for him.
    The only way I can solve my problem is to listen to the series, yes, each and every book
    all over again. Maybe, by that time Diana Gabaldon will have written another book in this series and I will be entranced all over again.
    I will be watching the TV series starting here in Canada Aug.24th with bated breath.

    His interest in her was purely professional...or so he told himself. Nash Kirkland had sought out Morgana Donovan, self-proclaimed witch, to help him research his latest screenplay. The hardheaded skeptic didn't believe for a minute she was what she professed to be, but Nash somehow found himself falling under her bewitching spell. Nash had never trusted his feelings. How could he be sure the irresistible passion he felt was real and not just some conjurer's trick?

    I cannot believe Nora Roberts would write such utter rubbish. Many of NR's books have been thoroughly enjoyable and I am a great fan of her writings. But really ! This book is pure non-sense. Please Nora, get well soon !

    The historic hotel in Boonsboro has endured war and peace, the changing of hands, and even rumored hauntings. Now it’s getting a major face-lift from the Montgomery brothers and their eccentric mother. As the architect in the family, Beckett’s social life consists mostly of talking shop over pizza and beer. But there’s another project he’s got his eye on: the girl he’s been waiting to kiss since he was sixteen.

    A really nice story. Lovely romance and three husky admirable brothers. MacLeod Andrews has the most sexy easy voice to listen to. Just love his narration. I would buy any Nora Roberts book narrated by MacLeod in preference to a female voice.

    Once upon a time...as a fair maiden lay weeping upon a cold tombstone, her heartfelt desire was suddenly made real before her: Tall, broad of shoulder, attired in gleaming silver and gold, her knight in shining armor had come to rescue his damsel in distress.... Hailed worldwide as one of the most romantic novels of all time, Jude Deveraux's dazzling best seller "will capture your heart - and hold it" (Daily Herald, Chicago) with its breathtaking tale.

    Story

    This romance has twist and turns that will keep you guessing and draw you into enticing worlds past and present. Colourful descriptions, and characters you will fall in love with. Narration was excellent. Those of you who thought the narrator should have been a woman are so very wrong...unless that female narrator was Carolyn Bonneyman, of course. Well worth your credit. This book will not disappoint. Go for it !

    In the early 1900s, the playwright Galeazzo D’Ascanio lived for Celia Sands. She was his muse and the inspiration for his most stunning and original play. But the night before she was to take the stage, Celia disappeared. Now, decades later, Alessandro D’Ascanio is preparing to stage the first performance of his grandfather’s masterpiece. A promising young actress - who shares Celia Sands’ name, but not her blood - has agreed to star. She is instantly drawn to the mysteries surrounding the play - and to her compelling, compassionate employer. And even though she knows she should let the past go, in her dreams it comes back.

    Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. This story is superbly written and transports the listener to another world. Narration by Carolyn Bonnyman is supreme. I have now listened to all of Sussanna Kearsley's books and wish her latest book The Firebird was available in my country of Canada.

    Code Name Verity is a compelling, emotionally rich story with universal themes of friendship and loyalty, heroism and bravery. Two young women from totally different backgrounds are thrown together during World War II: one a working-class girl from Manchester, the other a Scottish aristocrat, one a pilot, the other a wireless operator. Yet whenever their paths cross, they complement each other perfectly and before long become devoted friends. But then a vital mission goes wrong....
