    I listened to the book for about 30 minutes before I was forced to give up. The voice she did for the hero was horrible, which is amazing since I gave her 5 stars on When You Give A Duke A Diamond. It's a shame, really. I gave it 3 stars on here because I want to be fair to the author. I'm going to READ the book and I'm sure it will be a 5 star book when I leave my review on Amazon. When a female narrator can't do a man's voice she shoudn't be a narrator. Just sayin'

    I'm so glad I ignored the 32 one and two star reviews and went with the 376 four and five star reviews. I loved everything about this book. I especially loved Logan. What he went through with with Lovey-Dovey was just awful. I loved Dani, too. She was so strong and sassy and funny. Loved little Regan, too. Had some great secondary characters too: Maria, Buchanan, Ken and Barbie and poor Eli. And then there was Ballard! What a creep he was.
    It had some nice sensual, sexual moments that were nicely written. I would definitely read this author again.

    As to the narrators: They did a spectacular job and the voices. THAT being said,
    I think the whole thing was just stupid! I was exicited to hear a male and female narrator, thinking she would read the female parts and he would do the males. Umm, NO!! They just took turns reading a chapter or a few paragraphs, doing both the males and females voices. WTH was the point in that, I ask you? It wouldn't stop me from listening to two narrators again but I just don't see why they would have two narrators for one book.

    The reports stated Josh McBride’s death was from sudden cardiac arrest, but homicide detective Boyd McBride can’t shake the idea that his identical twin brother’s death was somehow connected to his search for the adopted boys’ birth parents. Josh must have been close to the truth…and it cost him his life. When Boyd comes to medical resident Hayden Walsh’s ER looking for answers, she agrees to help with his investigation because Josh was a friend.

    This was a pretty good murder mystery and love story, very sensual and sexual. I really liked Boyd and Hayden.
    I liked Morgan and Grace, too. AND, oddly enough, I liked Josh, even though he was dead throughout the book.
    I figured out who the killer was early on but it was still a good drama. I would recommend this book and read this author again.

    As to the narrator: Alexander Cendese did a wonderful job. The men sounded like men and the women sounded like women. Every person had their own distinct voice. I would definitely listen to him again.

    After being drugged and captured by Animal Control, Max Adams is on Hoboken's doggie death row when his life mate adopts him, takes him home, and promptly names him Fluffy. While JC, in all her new-pet-owner-ness, feeds "Fluffy" vile kibble, dresses him in mortifying dog couture, and schedules to have his manhood removed, Max's human side gets to know JC. Especially in the biblical sense.

    I should have known when the voices of Dan and Manny, the two from the animal shelter, came about that this narrator was going to suck. She uses her own voice no matter who's talking. They described Max and being as big as big foot but everytime he talked he sounded just like a girl, just like the narrator's voice. I'm only at 22% but I'm done listening to this terrible narrator. I'll just finish it by reading the book. She just ruins it. What a bummer.I looked at the reviews of other books she's narrated and every one of them rave about what a good job she did on Kate's voice, or Kara's or some other female. No one raved about the men because she doesn't attempt to sound like a man. I will never listen to this narrator again. I gave it 3 stars for the story alone. I'll leave my review of the book on Amazon when I finish READING it.

    I loved this book. It was romantic, sensual, sexual and a murder mystery. I would never have guessed who the killer was and I was so shocked to find out. I kept trying to figure out who the bad guy was and I did not guess anywhere near the right person.
    Loved Conor and Louisa. Cusack was an ass. Jackson and Ianelli were jerks until they realized Conor was not the killer. And I really liked Damian, Pat and Jayne. An all-around great read.
    This is my first read by Ms. Leigh but it won't be the last.

    As to the narrator: I'm not one for male narrators but Mr. Naramore did a super, super job with his reading. The men had their own voices and the women sounded just like women, with different voices and different personalities that you could actually hear. I look forward to listening to him again.

    I loved everything about this book. It was much better than A Laird for Christmas. I was happy Jules got his strength back in the seven months that had passed since the first book was supposed to have taken place. I really liked Jules in the first book and couldn't wait to read his story.
    I have to admit I was surprised to see who the bad guy was. I would never have guessed that. And, Claire was simply a great heroine.
    It was nice seeing Nicholas, Jane, Hollister and Lady Margaret again. I really enjoyed this book.
    AND, it had some great sex in it, too.

    I got this book free with my KindleUnlimited subscription.

    As to the narrator: Usually Ms. Eyre does a really great job but I wasn't thrilled with her voices in this book. She did make the men sound like men but some of them sounded a old when they weren't. I would still listen to anything Ms. Eyre narrates because she usually wonderful.

    For centuries, Lisette d'Alençon has been a warrior against the dark. She fights alongside her brothers and comrades. But when the dreams start coming, she can't bear to confess them to the Immortal Guardians' command. She dreams of a dark-haired man with soft eyes and brutal wounds, a man her heart aches for-and a man she knows has been declared a traitor. Zach is an exile, a loner. He won't defend himself against false accusations or grovel to those who should have faith in him.

    I would be hard-pressed to say which of these books are my favorite. I love all the characters involved: Bastian, Marcus, Roland, Seth, David, Melanie, Jenna, Ami, Chris, etc. And I'm so happy that Cliff hasn't gone insane yet and I hope he never does.
    I really love, love, loved Zach and Lizette, an awesome twosome for sure.
    The one thing that I really, really, really love about this series is that fact that the end of the book leaves it open for another book but it's never a cliffhanger. I absolutely hate those. AND these books have some incredible sex in them.
    I hope we're not going to have to wait another (almost) year for the next in the series.

    As to the narrator: Ms. Potter did an awesome job. Every person had their own voice and personality. I never get tired of listening to her.

    After her father and brother disappeared, Lady Jane Lennox is managing Bellhaven Castle. Nonetheless, her aunt has invited six suitors to compete for the right to her hand - and to protect Bellhaven's towers of cool, pink-gray stone. Among the six is Nicholas Kincaid, the one-time object of Jane's affection. Two years ago, her brother banished Nicholas. A mere "sir," in want of title or land, Nicholas was not marriage material. Now, Nicholas will have the chance to compete in challenges of wit and skill, rather than heraldry.

    Yeah, it was a little cheesy and it did smack of the bachelorette but it was still kind of cute and silly. I do get tired af all the drama in all the romance novels all the time so this was sort of a nice change.
    I did like all the players: Lady Margaret, Nicholas, Jane, Colin, David, Jules, Hollister and, eventually, Bryce.
    And there was the mystery of who was trying to kill Jane. I KNOW that none of you readers can honestly say you saw that coming!
    The only part I was really bothered by was that after Jane "slept" with Nicholas twice she still insisted on going on with the competition and left him wondering if she would choose him. I thought that was a little rediculous.

    As to the narrator: I know a lot of you think Ms. Flosnik is "oh, so wonderful" but I can only see her as barely ok. She doesn't have much emotion when she reads and she kinda' sucks at the men's voices. They all sound alike and all gravelly when they talk. I don't mind that they all sound alike but I hate the gravelly sound she gives them. Maybe it's because it makes them all sound like old men. I'am glad that Justine Eyre is reading the next book.

    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.

    Over all, this was a good story but I have to admit that I skimmed a LOT of it, as I did with all of them.
    I loved all the characters, Wick, J.J, Venom, Mac, Bastian, Rikar, Sloan, and all their women. But, there was soooo much filler.
    From the very beginning of the book there was a plan to go get JJ from the hospital, that's how chapter 1 started and it took all the way to (about) page 120 before they ever got her. There was so much BS going on! Going to the club to find a woman for energy, 20 or 30 pages of that nonsense. Then Wick going outside all loopy, another 15 or so pages, then at the hospital it took another 30 or so pages before Wick ever touched her. I must have skimmed about 75 to 100 pages and that's really not good. I don't mind a little filler, that kind of goes with all books, but there was really no reason for this book to have over 400 pages and 12 and a half hours of (not so much) listening pleasure. I did like this group of dragon/men but I just can't see myself reading anymore from the author. And, if it's the publisher telling her they want 400 pages plus it's time to get a new publisher.

    As to the narrator: Mr. Darcie did a fine job. He's still a little iffy when it comes to the women's voices but he does try his best and that's all I can ask.

    New to the Nightfury pack, dragon-shifter Mac cannot understand the bond between his brothers-in-arms and their human mates - until the moment he spies Tania and the energy bond between them blazes to life. Driven by a primal instinct, Mac will stop at nothing to find Tania, to keep her safe, to possess her. He has no time to waste: Ivar, leader of the rival Razorbacks, hunts her, hungry for a new high-energy pawn with which to destroy the human race. Caught between the warring factions, Tania finds herself immersed in a world she never knew existed - and bound by a love stronger than time.

    Another looong story but it was good. I'am going to read the 4th book, Fury of Desire, but if there's anymore written I won't continue the series. The books are just too long and way too wordy. I skimmed a lot of pages getting past Mac's feelings for Tania, which were said over and over again in so many different ways, just to get back to the story. The bad guys, Ivar, Rodin, Hamersveld, are really bad, Rodin especially, ewww.
    I'm not sure about Nian. One minute I think he's bad then I'm not so sure.
    I'm almost positive there will be books on Gage and Haider and Sloan and Daimler and.... but not for me. If the author would write her books without so much BS I would read everything she has but she just writes too much unnecessary stuff. For instance, another author might write that "she got undressed and got in the shower." CC will write, "she bent over and untied her shoes. Took them off. She unzipped her jeans and slid them down her long legs. She slowly pulled her shirt over her head. She unhooked her bra, took it off and walked into the shower." Really? She writes sooo many crazy descriptions of crap going on. You could take 100 pages from this book and not miss a thing. It was a really good story but you have to skim too much just to find it.

    As to the narrator: I guess I've gotten used to him because it hasn't been so bad. Male narrators just cannot do women's voices worth a darn but at least Mr. Darcie tries and it has become bearable. I would listen to him again. The guys just take some getting used to.

    I said after I read Kiss of Midnight I probably wouldn't read anymore of these books because they're soo long and wordy but I decided to try this one anyway. I really enjoyed it. I liked Dante and Tess. They were both very likable. I liked Nora too but I wasn't crazy about Ben from the get-go. I think I'll look and see if there's a book about Chase and read that one next. If not, then I don't know if I'll continue with them in order or just forget it. These books have some great sex and that's one thing that keeps me interested. Not erotic or dirty sex just romantic sex.

    As to the narrator: One reviewer said she did a good job on the men's accents "italian, Russian and Brit," and she did. However, I guess she thought she could do the accents and still sound like a "girl" and that would be good. Umm, nope, not even close! I can't say I won't listen to her again because this book came out on audio in 2010 and Ms. Huber could have gotten better since then.
