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!

    CEO of Knight, Inc., Lucien Knight is catch-your-breath gorgeous and damaged by his troubled past in Norway. All grown up and relocated to London, he's built his empire of adult clubs from the ground up to become the gorgeous patron saint of the sex industry. No one knows the dark childhood secrets that have given Lucien a backbone of steel and a heart encased in ice.

    Whew! What a steamy, sexy, erotic listen and I really liked the story but....the narrator sounded like the evil granny on SpongeBob Squarepants! If you can overlook this then you may enjoy. I haven't looked but I hope there is a different narrator for books 2 & 3 because I plan to continue on.

    Through their innocent correspondence, a lonely young wife grows to love an imaginary man thousands of miles away. But when he returns to England from India, her idea of reality is turned upside down. Drawn from a safe world of tea and parlor chat into madness and mystery, she cannot find her own cherished Robert in the frightening stranger who claims her love. Laura Kinsale personally chose the exceptional talent of Nicholas Boulton to voice her favorite heroine, sweet, witty Folie with her ferret, Toot.

    This story was good with wonderful narration but Flowers from....and The Prince of......were so good this story was unable to live up to my high expectations! I think I just need to back off Kinsale for awhile due to burnout because I really do adore her stories.

    After a mission goes wrong, Aric Savage is taken prisoner. Half-dead and despairing, he makes a stunning discovery: His Pack-mate Micah Chase, who was reported dead, is a fellow captive. When the Alpha team goes into full-rescue mode, accompanying them is an absolute stunner with sable hair - and a spine of solid steel.... LAPD officer and Psy Dreamwalker Rowan Chase has one priority: her brother Micah's recovery. Still, she can't help but be drawn to Aric, the ruggedly handsome wolf shifter who pleasures her as no man ever has - however fleeting their affair is destined to be.

    Not as good as #1, it felt rushed. The underlying story is good but barely brought up in this sequel. Lots of quick, fast and hard, with a thank-you at the end! I am interested to listen to more about the creepy villian so I will probably continue on.

    When I wake up in a dark, unfamiliar room, I have no idea what's waiting for me in the shadows. My imagination conjures up demons of the worst kind. Reality is much worse: A collar with no leash. A prison with no walls. And a life stripped of meaning. A collar with no leash. A prison with no walls. And a life stripped of meaning. I am presented with a vile contract and asked to sign. It outlines the terms of my servitude.

    I have survived the worst. I have come out of the darkness with my sanity intact. Now, I get to meet the monster holding me here. For the first time since my captivity began, I get to meet Stonehart. Whatever he wants, I'll be ready. The collar may be tight around my neck, but I will not be a prisoner. A prisoner has no choice. A prisoner has no purpose. But a concubine, on the other hand? She always has a choice. And today, I choose to fight.

    4 two hour listens, and #1 will snag you. It sounds very intriguing...along the lines of Consequences. This is my cup of tea so I am hanging in there to find out what happens. The narrator was good, not great.

    The Manor, the very place where their passionate love affair began, fills with guests on what should be the happiest day of Ava and Jesse's lives. She has accepted that she'll never tame the fierceness in Jesse - and she doesn't want to. Their love is profound, their connection powerful, but just when she thinks that she's finally gotten beneath his guarded exterior, more questions arise, leading Ava to believe that Jesse Ward may not be the man she thinks he is.

    I loved this trilogy! The narration was hot, sexy and beautiful and really made the book a wonderful listen. I had a smile on my face the whole time I listened. The story was interesting from beginning to end. The sex was drool-worthy!!!!! but loving and tasteful too for erotica. When I can picture characters and scenery in my head, I know the story has been well written and This Man trilogy was!

    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.
