    Rowan Cassidy likes to be in charge - especially in her personal life. As a mistress at Club Privé, the most exclusive bondage/S & M club on the West Coast, Rowan can live out her dominant fantasies safely, and with complete control - until the night Christian Thorne walks in. Self-confident and sophisticated, he’s a natural dominant if Rowan’s ever seen one. Yet she can’t stop thinking about him and imagining his touch.

    Sex and tears...that's about it. No story, no plot, no character development. So if you are in the mood to just listen to sex and angst go for it!

    Story

    This MC story was just ok for me. There was very little biker story and much more of a sex story for the high ranking biker and a timid, virginal working girl. The narrator was not very good but tolerable. I probably will not continue on with this series, I am too spoiled by the Undeniable Series...that's a biker book!

    He watches her from across the crowded dance club, a sensual black-haired stranger who stirs Gabrielle Maxwell's deepest fantasies. But nothing about this night---or this man---is what it seems. For when Gabrielle witnesses a murder outside the club, reality shifts into something dark and deadly. In that shattering instant she is thrust into a realm she never knew existed---a realm where vampires stalk the shadows and a blood war is set to ignite.

    This vampire who has a heartbeat and can breathe story is similar to the others in that genre. They are warriors fighting rogues and find their mate. It was just ok for me, the narrator was just ok, overall just not very interesting. I bought 1&2 of the series but that will be it for me unless the rest are free.

    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.

    This listen was a little too tame for me. Very much like other NR books I've listened to without the ghosts and spirits. I did love the narrator, she has a very sexy male voice which I haven't encountered much.

    This was your usual Highland Romance with a bit of intrigue but what made it unique was the wonderful narration. Sometimes a good, authentic, male narration will do wonders for the story and Mr. Perkins did just that! This is about 4 Highlanders, friends since youth, their trials and finding love. This was #1 so there is a lot of character introduction but I plan to continue on with the series to see what happens with other three!

    Stonehart’s revelation can never change what he’s done to me. But can it be enough to make a difference in how I see him? As old questions are answered, new ones arise: Is it possible for a man to change? Is it possible for him to repent for all his sins? And, perhaps most important of all: Is it possible for me to forgive?

    My name is Amelia Gray. They call me The Graveyard Queen. I've been commissioned to restore an old cemetery in Asher Falls, South Carolina, but I'm coming to think I have another purpose here. Why is there a cemetery at the bottom of Bell Lake? Why am I drawn time and again to a hidden grave I've discovered in the woods? Something is eating away at the soul of this town - this withering kingdom - and it will only be restored if I can uncover the truth.

    This is #2 of the series and I loved it. Spooky and ghostly, perfect for Halloween! Amelia can see ghosts and she restores cemeteries and now we know why. This is the story of her birth plus a little evil in the mix. Beautiful southern narration, Amelia lives in Charleston.

    Dr. Emory Charbonneau, a pediatrician and marathon runner, disappears on a mountain road in North Carolina. By the time her husband Jeff, miffed over a recent argument, reports her missing, the trail has grown cold. Literally. Fog and ice encapsulate the mountainous wilderness and paralyze the search for her. While police suspect Jeff of "instant divorce," Emory, suffering from an unexplained head injury, regains consciousness and finds herself the captive of a man whose violent past is so dark that he won't even tell her his name.

    I enjoyed this listen but it was quite dull during much of the story. The unique ending made up for that. I felt cheated, getting the best part of the story when it was over. The narrator sounded like a radio dj to me, I didn't like him but he was tolerable.
