    In feudal England, Elizabeth Montwright barely escaped the massacre that destroyed her family and exiled her from her ancestral castle. Bent on revenge, she rode again through the fortress gates, disguised as a healer...to seek aid from Geoffrey Berkley, the powerful baron who had routed the murderers.

    Story

    After two tries at listening to books narrated by Anne Flosnik, I've decided that it's not worth the torture. Such a shame since Julie Garwood books are so fantastic. Her work is banned from my library. To anyone considering purchasing one of the books she's narrated, be sure to listen to the snippets provided by Audible. Most annoying voice ever!

    Mels Carmichael, reporter for the Caldwell Courier Journal, gets the shock of her life when a man stumbles in front of her car outside the local cemetery. After the accident, his amnesia is just the kind of mystery she likes to solve, but she soon discovers they're in over their heads with his past. Over their heads with passion, too.... As shadows walk the line between reality and another realm, and her lover's memory begins to come back, the two of them learn that nothing is truly dead and buried.

    Story

    I held off from buying this book for a couple of months due to the myriad comments on the narration speed. While I agree with all of them -- the speed IS too fast -- it didn't stop me from following (or enjoying) the story. I sure hope they fix this going forward.

    Eric Dove isn't one of my favorite narrators, but he does an ok job with this series. I wish he could find a little more range with the characters -- they all sounds exactly the same to me. So much so that during some of the dialogue, I couldn't tell who was speaking.

    That aside, I've truly enjoyed this series and will be back for Book 5 when it's available!

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    I have to admit... I wasn't sure this was going to be worth my credit. With so many mixed reviews, I decided to go out on a limb and try it. I really enjoyed the story and the quirky characters. And when it ended, I was left thinking "NO!"... it can't end like that! Luckily there's the second book and I will go on to finish the trilogy. All I can do is hope these two characters figure out a way to be together. Fast read... very steamy!

For when Gabrielle witnesses a murder outside the club, reality shifts into something dark and deadly.

    I have a 45 minute commute to work and TRY to save my audio books for the drive. I couldn't, however, stop listening to this one! Great story... can't wait to start on the second book! Narrator did a great job as well. Worth the credit for sure!

    Story was just ok... not great... not bad. There really wasn't enough meat to the story and I felt like the author just repeated the same things over and over again.
