    She couldn't remember a thing, not even who she was. But it was clear Bailey James was in trouble. Big trouble. And she desperately needed private eye Cade Parris to help her find out just what kind. Surely she wasn't a criminal - but then what on earth was she doing with a bag full of cash and a stunning blue diamond as big as a baby's fist?

    This is definitely not my favourite Nora Roberts' book, but her writing is generally so superb and the narrator excellent, that it wasn't a complete waste of time. I will definitely listen to the 2nd and 3rd book.

    I enjoyed this book; it wasn't the greatest I've listened to, but I still enjoyed it. The narrator was good, story was good. I will listen to books from M. Malone again and also from the narrator. It was worth a credit.

    I bought this book during one of Audible's sales, and it was such a waste of money and time. I have listened to Sheryl Wood's books before and it wasn't bad: they're not my favourite, but nice "in between books". I'm not sure if it was the narrator or if this was just not a good book, but i will definitely not be getting the rest of the series, nor will i ever get a book with Christina Traister as narrator - she didn't express the right emotions, and her accents were terrible. I might give Sheryl Woods another go if the reviews are good.
    You do like the main male character, Trace, as he is genuinely sooo in love with Abby and it is so endearing, but Abby seems so stuck-up and there's hardly a scene where she expresses her emotions or thoughts. Not a great love story.

    I can't WAIT to listen to the third book! The first and, even more so, the second book is a gripping fantasy romance. SO worth it! Am curious to see how Nora's creativity will let Zoey find the key, and can't wait for the romance to unfold with Brad.

Now on the verge of a successful career, and having fallen in love with the man of her dreams, Emma is looking to the future. Yet it’s the past that is about to catch up with her. For Emma, her childhood had been almost like a rags-to-riches fairy tale - until the tragic night that changed her family forever.

    I enjoy books that are so long as it gives me time to really get to know the characters and you "live" them for a while. The story was excellent and once you make peace with the fact that not all the accents are accurate, the narrator is also pretty good. Well worth the credit!

    He was once a legendary highwayman. Now he's a recluse in a ruined French castle, with only a half-wild wolf for a companion. When Lady Leigh Strachan comes looking for a man to aid in her revenge, she's disillusioned to find that the famed Prince of Midnight couldn't help even if he cared to - which he doesn't. S. T. Maitland wants nothing to do with his legend, or with this fierce, beautiful, broken woman... until the old thrill of living on the cutting edge of danger begins to rise in his blood again.

    I didn't like the male character in this book at all... the whole story is just weird. Didn't even finish the book. It seems like he "forces" himself on her during the love scenes which is very off-putting.
