Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!

    Nicoletta knows all too well the curse that plagues the house of Scarletti. Then she gazes into the dark, mesmerizing eyes of Don Scarletti and she fears for her future - for it is Scarletti's ancient right to select a bride from among his people...and he has chosen her. Compelled by duty, driven by burning, inescapable desire, Nicoletta surrenders to this powerful, hypnotic man, giving her body willingly into his keeping. But will the tormented don be her heart's destiny... or her soul's destruction?

    I loved this historical romantic mystery full of suspense and toe curling sex. The narrator was authentic and just wonderful to listen to.

    Twenty years ago, Claire Maloney was the willful, pampered, tomboyish daughter of the town's most respected family, but that didn't stop her from befriending Roan Sullivan, a fierce, motherless boy who lived in a rusted-out trailer amid junked cars. No one in Dunderry, Georgia - least of all Claire's family - could understand the bond between these two mavericks. But Roan and Claire belonged together...until the dark afternoon when violence and terror overtook them, and Roan disappeared from Claire's life.

    I really ponder my $4.95 picks and I picked a winner! In the beginning I thought NO!!!!!! The narrator was torturous but I hung in there and I am so glad I did. The story is beautiful, thoughtful, endearing and innocent and I could have listened for hours more, I grew accustomed to the narrator and in the end she was important for this story to be told. I highly recommend!

    #3 is much like #1 and #2...damsel in distress saved by the hunk she blew off, as in broke up with. This listen would be good with about 4 hours less of repetition and thinking among the characters. The narrator was good and of course there were multiple very hot sex scenes. If you've listened to the others, expect much of the same.

    Leila's psychic abilities have been failing her, and now she isn't sure what the future holds. If that weren't enough, her lover, Vlad, has been acting distant. Though Leila is a mere mortal, she's also a modern woman who refuses to accept the cold-shoulder treatment forever - especially from the darkly handsome vampire who still won't admit that he loves her.... Soon circumstances send Leila back to the carnival circuit, where tragedy strikes.

    Cat and Bones were my first so I still love them the best but Leila and Vlad are a very close second. Fun story of love and adventure vampire style. Tavia Gilbert's Vlad voice is so good the real Impaler would be impressed!

    Just as good as book 1. I love how book 1 is seamlessly written into book 2, it wasn't a rehash of book 1 but a nice refresher. I like my characters to stay around for the whole series. Narration grows on you....lots of p and f words. Looking forward to #3 and hopefully more after that!

    Highland romance + Kirsten Potter = excellence. The story was well written and authentic but.....it is a trilogy so there are a lot of mysteries to be solved. I will not listen to a Highland romance story without Kirsten Potter narrating, she is that good.

    I haven't touched another person in three years.That seems like it would be a difficult task, but it's not. Not anymore, thanks to the internet. My anonymous clients spend thousands of dollars to watch me take my clothes off for the camera. What they want, I give. Their secrets, I keep. Everything I tell them is a lie. Open the door to this year's most shocking thriller.

    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.

    No warrior of the Nightfury pack is more complicated or damaged than Wick. Scarred from a childhood of slavery and torture, Wick cannot bear the touch of another person. But all bets are off when he meets J. J. Solares. When she is unjustly imprisoned, Wick agrees to help rescue and keep her from harm. But Wick lives a life of self-imposed isolation, and venturing into the world to seek justice for J. J. may be more than he can take.

    I anticipated Wick's story but learned very little. This listen was just more of the same with little new knowledge. I felt Wick had a great background story to explore but it was touched on just a little. I felt like the author was in a hurry to get it over with. It will take a 5 star review for me to continue on with the series.

    As a book reader I would never have chosen a Kinsale book, as an Audible listener I was exposed to a review of her works and took a chance. I am so thankful because this is the most beautiful story, beautifully written and beautifully narrated. So if you haven't...take a chance!

    Behind His Eyes – Consequences is a companion to the audiobook Consequences, by New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Aleatha Romig. It is not a standalone audiobook and should not be listened to as such. This companion was written to explore the thoughts and motivations of Anthony Rawlings, the man behind the consequences.

    Necessary for me because I am caught up in these characters and will listen to everything written. This is a snapshot of Book 1 from Tony's POV and I was hoping for more insight into Tony. This story is a mystery and I am looking forward to continuing on with the journey.
