    Rebellious, green-eyed Eleanor never met a rule she didn't want to break. Sick of her mother's zealotry and the confines of Catholic school, she declares that she'll never go to church again. But her first glimpse of beautiful, magnetic Father Marcus Stearns - Søren to her and only her - and his lust-worthy Italian motorcycle is an epiphany. Eleanor is consumed, yet even she knows that being in love with a priest can't be right. But when one desperate mistake nearly costs Eleanor everything, it is Søren who steps in to save her.

    If you love Nora as much as I do, you will love her more after listening to The Saint. It is her beginning...you will laugh and cry and hold your breath at times. This is Nora and Soren from the start and it is so good!

    Having narrowly averted an (under)world war, Cat Crawfield wants nothing more than a little downtime with her vampire husband, Bones. Unfortunately, her gift from New Orleans’ voodoo queen just keeps on giving - leading to a personal favor that sends them into battle once again, this time against a villainous spirit. Centuries ago, Heinrich Kramer was a witch hunter. Now, every All Hallows Eve, he takes physical form to torture innocent women before burning them alive.

    Yvonne Carmichael, renowned geneticist, public authority, happily married mother of two, sits in the accused box. The charge is murder. Across the courtroom, not meeting her eye, sits her alleged accomplice. He wears the beautiful pin-striped suit he wore on their first meeting in the Houses of Parliament, when he put his hand on her elbow, guided her to a deserted and ancient chapel, and began to undress her.

    Story

    It took me days to finish this listen, so sad and painful it was. I loved the story and could hardly wait 'til the end but it's intense and sad storyline had me taking frequent breaks. The narrator is British and is wonderful, I could visualize this story while she read. This is one of the rare books I have come across that did not have a happy ending. I am glad I chose this book, fiction that can play havoc with your emotions like this one did mine is worth the pain and sadness I endured.

    Alison Tyler, "mistress of literary erotica," has mined her memoirs, spinning a kinky fairy tale with a happily-ever-after ending. Dark Secret Love is a modern-day Story of O, a 9 1/2 Weeks - style journey fueled by lust, longing, and the search for true love.

    Inspired by her BDSM lifestyle and based on her private diaries, Tyler draws on her twenty-five years' experience penning sultry stories to create a scorching hot work of autobiographical fiction, a meta-audiobook with reality at the core.

    Story

    This is not playing at BDSM, this is the real thing, so if you are skiddish keep that in mind. I enjoyed the listen, I still have a lot of questions about the lifestyle but learned a lot. This listen is extremely erotic and has a lot of explicit sex. The story is not pretend, it is this woman's journey through the BDSM world. The narrator was very monotone and I think this was meant to be but I didn't really like it, it was tolerable though. I will listen to #2.

    I know that I am here for a reason. Stonehart abducted me, starved me, and left me in the dark... all for a reason. He is a cold man, but he is not irrational. He has his purpose. I have not yet discovered what it is. I should despise him. I should feel nothing but disgust when I think of him. And yet... yet sometimes, I don't.

    Fredrik Gustavsson never considered the possibility of love, or that anyone could ever understand or accept his dark and bloody lifestyle - until he met Seraphina, a woman as vicious and blood-thirsty as Fredrik himself. They spent two short but unforgettable years together, full of lust and killing and the darkest kind of love that two people can share. And then Seraphina was gone. It's been six years since Fredrik's lover and sadistic partner in crime turned his world upside-down.

    This series just gets better and better! This is the third in the company of killers and it is great! The story of Fredrik and if you have read #1 and #2 you know he is a torturer. It is a mindf#&k from the beginning. I loved it and highly recommend. #4 is coming in October and sounds great! The narrators were good too!

    Ellie is horrified to discover the pharmaceutical company she works for is doing illegal experiments, splicing human and animal DNA, creating exotic new species. One such "experiment" captures her heart and she’ll do anything to save him - even if he hates her for it. Fury has never known compassion or love. He's spent his life in a cell, chained and abused by humans. The one woman he allowed himself to trust betrayed him. He vows to end her life but when she's finally in his grasp, harming her is the last thing he wants to do to the sexy little human.

    This listen was ok, lot's of "mounting" and growling. The narrator was good. If you are in the mood for a naughty listen, try it, otherwise there are a lot better paranormal romance stories out there. I probably will not continue on with this series.

    Tell No One is an irresistibly suspenseful thriller infused with nail-biting tension and packed with shocking plot twists. It has been eight years since Dr. David Beck’s wife, Elizabeth, was murdered by a serial killer. When Beck receives a message containing a phrase only Elizabeth should know, he is tormented to tears. Either someone is playing a sick joke, or the wife he’s never stopped loving is still alive. He’s been warned to tell no one, and as the desperation of his search for the truth intensifies, he heads straight toward a deadly secret.

    Jeremy Stonehart is a cruel, vindictive man. He wants me to submit. He wants me to give in. I will never give in. I will never yield. No matter what he subjects me to, I will always fight. I will not forget my resolve. Let Stonehart think me broken. I am not so easily deterred as that. No matter what he puts me through, I will always remember my own strength. I will always remember that in the end, I have control of the one thing he really wants: My mind.

    Oh so good.....I haven't listened to a bad Elder Races. Again this couple comes a very close second to Pia and Dragos and I would love to know more. The story, a little confusing at times so listen closely but very interesting and suspenseful. This is the first Gin and Oracle I have encountered and their story and talents are magical. I love Sophie in this series and would recognize every character she has performed!

For Tess, this means their relationship is over.

    Ok, I loved Mystery Man but this one had too many baby, honey, sweetness, my boys and on and on. There was a little action near the end, otherwise no Wild Man that I could find. The narrator was a little annoying this go round, but with all the fluff words I can see why.
