    Adam Dearborn has just been adopted into the Grayson family when he comes upon two boys huddled inside his sister’s warm greenhouse. Adam had hoped to have time alone with his sweetheart, Rebecca, but December snow is falling hard and the poorly clothed, hungry boys need his help. Adam takes them home never expecting the arrangement could become permanent. Being an only son is not a position Adam wants to give up, not does he want to share Rebecca’s affection with the older boy.

    Special Agent Jackson Maddox is posing as an ex-convict in a reintegration program believed to have ties to terrorism. Out of the blue, a woman snaps his picture, putting his deep cover in jeopardy. Journalist Magdalena Alexandra won't be chased away. She has an agenda of her own - to send her sister's killer back to jail. As the nights heat up and peril looms, Jackson and Lena find benefits to uniting forces. But teaming up means more than looking out for each other-it requires sharing secrets.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Guardian to be better than the print version?

    Haven't read the print version yet...bought the print version because I enjoyed the audio so much....just had to read it for myself!!!


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was very intriguing...did not figure out the true bad guys until near the end. It is humorous
    and sexy without going over the top.


    Which character – as performed by David Brenin – was your favorite?

    I liked all the characters but enjoyed the fact that Jackson got his own book and was able to open up from his character in the Protector. I probably would have given a different accent to Jackson though!!


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

    I try to listen to them in one sitting but after work doesn't lend enough time to sit and listen to it in one sitting. But when I'm gardening and cleaning house I do listen non-stop!!!


    Any additional comments?

    I was introduced to audio by Wendy Lindstrom and have enjoyed trying out authors I haven't read yet. I just happened along Marliss Melton and thought I would give her a try. I love the Task Force series and have ordered those books in print....I will continue to read her as well as Wendy Lindstrom!! I am a big fan of "paper" so that says a lot about how well I liked these audio books to order them in print!!

    Eryn McClellan teaches ESL in Washington, D.C., until the day she's targeted by terrorists avenging her father's actions in Afghanistan. The FBI has stepped in, but when it looks like they are using her for bait, General McClellan enlists the aid of the only man he knows he can trust: former Navy SEAL Ike Calhoun. Embracing solitude in his remote cabin in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Ike thought he'd left the War on Terror behind.

    What did you love best about The Protector?

    Two fragile souls unit to help save themselves from their demons


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I like Ike because he knows he has PTSD issues and slowly comes out of his self imposed isolation to be the man he IS!!


    Have you listened to any of David Brenin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, this is the first one, but I have ordered the next two in this series!!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I guess you would call it extreme....I'm forever a "paper" person....so I am going to have to order these in paperback!!!


    Any additional comments?

    I am enjoying entertaining new authors to me by listening to audiobooks, I have to thank Wendy Lindstrom for introducing me to them!!!

    Ally Turner is shaken by the death of her childhood friend, starlet Willow Scott - and horrified when devilishly charming Tom Proctor starts digging into Willow's past for a tell-all bio, threatening to unearth a scandalous secret that must be kept hidden at all costs.

    What made the experience of listening to Pure and Simple the most enjoyable?

    Being able to just sit back, relax and listen to the story unfold


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Pure and Simple?

    Finding out that not all is what is seems


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Willow's "younger years" not being who or what everyone thought she was


    If you could take any character from Pure and Simple out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Probably Tom.....a Texas thing


    Any additional comments?

    This was my first time listening to an audio book and it was an experience. The narration once I got used to it wasn't bad....although any Texan would probably not recognize the accent. On to the story itself....it shows how misconceptions about someone that you think you know aren't all they seem to be....that forgiveness truly comes from the heart and hiding from secrets can only lead to sorrow....or maybe awakening.
