    Standing over the body of a Supreme Court nominee, Lieutenant Sam Holland is hip-deep in another high-profile murder case. The fact that she was one of the last people to see Julian Sinclair alive just complicates things even more. On the plus side, her relationship with Senator Nick Cappuano is heating up - but it's also attracting a lot of unwanted media attention and blinding flash bulbs.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Possibly. I liked the whole series.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Katie Sparer’s performances?

    Probably not. She reads okay, but I didn't like her voice. It doesn't match the character. The narrators from the other books in the series were much for fitting for Sam.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It would have been , if the voice didn't bug me.

    The cowboy moved so quickly Caroline didn't have time to think, much less react. One moment he was standing there looking at her across the blazing hot Nevada street, the next moment, she was in his arms. Her protests were stopped as he bent his head toward her. A complete stranger, a cowboy she'd met just moments ago when she stepped off the dusty stagecoach was actually going to put his mouth on hers and kiss her. Things like this never happened in Boston!

    I admit I was only able to make it to chapter 9. A lot of reviews stated this is not a silly western romance, but to me it is. Maybe I just wasn't in the mood for this kind of book the day I played it... I'll try to go back another day and re-listen to it. If my outlook changes I'll update my review.

    Descended of the legendary sons of MacAlpin, Iain MacKinnon refuses to bow to the English. When his young son is captured by a minion of the English king, the fierce Scottish chieftain vows to stop at nothing to secure the lad's return. Retaliating in kind, he captures the daughter of his enemy, planning to bargain with the devil. FitzSimon's daughter has lived her entire life in the shadow of the man she called father--yet never would she have imagined he would forsake his only daughter.

    Would you listen to The MacKinnon's Bride again? Why?

    Yes.


    What about Braden Wright’s performance did you like?

    Some narrators can make or break a book (or atleast make you wish you ordered the kindle version instead). He did a great job with the different voices. I would definately listen to more books by him. In fact, I did purchase more books that he narrated.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book had me laughing out loud a lot! The author did a great job from start to finish.

    Nicole Martin was only eight years old when the vampire slaves rose up in rebellion and killed her family. Now she devotes her life to finding a vaccine against vampirism, hoping to wipe out her memories-along with every bloodsucker on the planet. But there's one thing she cannot destroy: Her searing, undeniable attraction for the one man she should hate and fear the most.

    What does Amy Landon bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I typically prefer male narrators since many female ones make the males sound feminine or overdone. She does a good job with the voices and it's easy to distinguish between characters.


    Any additional comments?

    This book has a different take on vampires and their society. At first I wasn't sure I would like it, but then the more I listened the more I got into the book. The book does end with a cliffhanger and I would definitely listen/read the next in the series.

    I'm waiting to read/listen to the rest of the series. I liked the characters. Some of the rape scenes were a bit too graphic, but otherwise it was a good read. I would recommend this book.

    Ex-Marine Nate "Ghost" Weller is an expert at keeping his cool - and his distance - which makes him one hell of a sniper. It's also how he keeps his feelings for Ali Morgan in check. Sweet, sexy Ali has always revved his engine, but she's his best friend's baby sister ... and totally off limits. Ali's never seen anything sexier than Nate Weller straddling his custom Harley - or the flash of danger in his eyes when she tells him she's in trouble. First, something happened to her brother, and now she's become the target of a nasty organization.

    What did you love best about Hell on Wheels?

    It kept my attention. I would listen to others in the series if the narrator does better on the female voice(s).


    Did Abby Craden do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    She did a decent job differentiating all the characters, however she made the heroine sound way too winey.

    Dr. Charlotte "Charlie" Stone has dedicated her career as a psychiatrist to exploring the darkest territory of all: the hearts and minds of serial killers. It’s a job she’s uniquely suited for, thanks to the secret talent that gives her an uncanny edge - Charlie can see dead people, whose tormented spirits cry out to her for the justice only she can provide. This blessing - or curse - gives Charlie the power to hunt down and catch madmen and murderers. It’s also turned her love life upside down by drawing her into a hopelessly passionate relationship with the lingering ghost of bad boy Michael Garland.

    She does a great narration.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a sequel to the last victim. You will want to read that first. You have to have an open mind to reading about ghosts & people being wrongfully convicted of a crime in order to enjoy both books. SPOILER: The 1st book got a lot of bad reviews because the love interest was the ghost of a convicted serial killer who claimed innocence. This book showed some proof of Michael's innocence... hopefully the next book will exonerate him.

    Would you listen to Captured Heart again? Why?

    Yes, it had a good story. Some highland romances make the female protagonist too naive. This book had a good balance.


    Any additional comments?

    I think that the people complaining about the narrator were too harsh. Yes, I've heard better narration for highlander men, however she didn't make the book unbearable to listen to. Her male voices improved as the book progressed, with a few slip-ups along the way. I've listened to many books narrated by women that I couldn't finish. Male narrators are my preference, but I still would listen to more books in this series if they kept this narrator.

    For six agonizing years Heather Tremont Leonetti tried to make a lie of the breathless summer when rodeo rider Turner Brooks broke her innocence and branded her heart. But now only the truth could save her most precious, cherished memento. Which meant she'd have to beg the help of the one man who could drive her to her knees - the proud, unforgiving loner she'd loved ... the unforgettable cowboy who'd sired her son.

    Would you try another book from Lisa Jackson and/or Renee Raudman?

    This is not my favorite lisa Jackson book... but it was okay. As far as the narrator, she needs to work on a the males voice.


    What aspect of Renee Raudman’s performance would you have changed?

    The voice for turner makes him sound like an old man not a twenty, then thirty something year old. Otherwise the narration was fine.

    Dr. Charlotte Stone sees what others do not. A sought-after expert in criminal pathology, Charlie regularly sits face-to-face with madmen. Obsessed with learning what makes human monsters commit terrible crimes, Charlie desires little else from life - no doubt because when she was 16, she herself survived a serial killer's bloodbath: A man butchered the family of Charlie's friend, then left the girl's body on a seaside boardwalk one week later. Because of the information Charlie gave police, the Boardwalk Killer went underground.

    The book is classified as a paranormal romance... so it baffles me that people would give it a bad rating for being far fetched. If you want something realistic, 1) why are you reading anything classified as paranormal 2) why are you reading a romance novel? Overall, I liked it. It has a different twist then most of the paranormal romances out there. As for all the negative comments about the "falling in love with a serial killer", the book insinuates that he was wrongly accused... hopefully the next book will prove he (michael) was not a serial killer.
