After all, her job is hardly normal.Ian Kinncaid, master of disguise, has been estranged from his family for well over a decade. With his deep cover blown, he now needs a safe place to put the little girl he saved from the Czech underground. But the shadows cloak enemies and trust comes at too high a cost.

    Stayed up longer than I should have listening to a book I had already read. The narration was so good and the story even better. Loved this production so much.

    He's a duke. He's a mathematical genius. He can't talk and he's locked in a lunatic asylum. Only a modest Quaker girl can reach him, but when she helps him to escape, she's swept into his glittering aristocratic world, her life torn apart by his desperate attempt to save himself.

    Story

    Three downloads for the book-18 hours of listening, but worth my time. It was an interesting story. I did not fall in love with the hero although I feel he was a man of his time, but as a speech pathologist, I found the story interesting. I have had patients with the anger and frustrations of not being able to communicate. I also understood the religious struggle. I just felt, overall, that I didn't love them as a couple as much as I do other romantic couples. Not a re-listen for me, but it was enjoyable.

    Dr. Catherine Young is on a mission to find a man who has vanished into thin air. Walking into a high-tech hideaway bearing an essential message to Tom "Mac" McEnroe, Team Leader of the betrayed Ghost Ops force, is the most dangerous thing she has ever done. The soldier she encounters is frightening and suspicious, but her senses reveal the man underneath: tough, honorable, and so breathtakingly masculine Catherine feels weak in his presence.... But to surrender to Mac's passionate desires would put her life in dire jeopardy.

    I love the narrator so pretty much buy books based on that and not the author so much. This was a little to graphic for me. I don't need to have pages describe the sex act between characters. This book is not subtle. It wasn't for me, but many will enjoy it.

    As a new year dawns in the capital city, dual scandals rock the Metropolitan Police Department - and Lieutenant Sam Holland is right in the middle of them. Chief Farnsworth is catching heat for the way he handled a recent homicide investigation, and Detective Gonzales is accused of failing to disclose an earlier connection to the judge who decided his custody hearing.

    When Caroline boarded the plane to Virginia to move across the country for her new job she never expected to be seated next to the hottest guy she'd ever seen. She also never expected he'd be so easy to talk to. She knew he'd never be interested in talking to her if he hadn't been trapped in the seat next to her, but it was a nice way to spend a long plane ride.

    My favorite narrators are Julie Whelan, Luke Daniels, Susan Erickson, and Kealeo Griffith. They are the standard for narration for me. If the narration isn't good, then the book falls flat. I didn't know this narrator, but this series was in recommendations on audible and amazon so I decided to give it a try. It was an ok story with an ok narrator.

    For as far back as she can remember, Airiana Ridell has always been aware of her extraordinary gift. She can intuit revealing and illuminating "patterns" in the air around her - whether in a spray of mist, in billowing clouds, or in the dense swirls of an impenetrable fog. Her abilities led to her placement in a secret government training facility when she was a child, but everything changed after her mother was murdered.

    Personal trainer Trey Ziegler was in peak physical condition. If you didn't count the kitchen knife in his well-toned chest. Lieutenant Eve Dallas soon discovers a lineup of women who'd been loved and left by the narcissistic gym rat. While Dallas sorts through the list of Ziegler's enemies, she's also dealing with her Christmas shopping list - plus the guest list for her and her billionaire husband's upcoming holiday bash.

    Recycled plot from Seduction In Death and Innocent In Death with sex on the brain. A man who seduces or drugs women at work, the innocent, naive woman who gets caught in his trap, the worldly woman who lies about her relationship with the victim. Roarke and Eve so in love with themselves that gets old. Nothing new and different about this book. I have given up on Maya Bank's KGI series. I am going to buy Obession in Death, but if it is a recycled plot from 20 books ago, I am done.

    From #1 New York Times-best-selling author Nora Roberts comes a novel of a woman who needs nothing, a man who sees everything, and the web of deceit, greed, and danger that brings them together - and that could tear them apart… As a professional house-sitter and freelance writer, nothing ties Lila Emerson down - not her work, not a home, and definitely not a relationship. She spends her life moving from one job to the next, sometimes crashing at a friend 's Manhattan apartment. And though she can appreciate her clients ' extraordinary homes, their expensive collections, and their adorable pets, Lila has never longed for possessions of her own. Everything she has, including her heart, is portable.

    I am a fan of Julie Whelan. I purchased this book because of her. I am also a fan of Nora Roberts, but I have disappointed with her books a few times recently. I stayed up late into the night listening to this book. It was worth the credit.
