    Leslie Harris's visit to her upstate New York lakeside family home after a decade of triumphs and disappointment resembles a nightmare more than the quiet vacation she'd hoped for. The unexpected appearance of much-changed town girl, Devon Weber, with whom Leslie shares a secret that haunts them both, rekindles an old heart ache - and reminds Leslie of just why she left.

    No matter how much we plan, life - and people - have a way of surprising us. For Doctor KT O’Bannon, a near-fatal tragedy derails a career and disrupts everything she thought she knew about herself and her future. Battered and nearly broken, she turns for solace to the one woman who knows her best, her ex-lover Doctor Tory King. Their unexpected reunion in Provincetown uncovers old wounds, forges new bonds, and awakens long-buried passions.

    Story

    In this, the 3rd book in the Provincetown series, we're introduced to KT O'Bannon, Tory's ex love. After suffering a career threating injury, KT went to Tory for help. Tory, understandably so, is reluctant to over KT a job. The new character in the series, Pia Torres is a rehab specialist and of course, the sparks fly when she meets KT. Tory and Reese love is still as strong as ever but is put to the test when Reese is called into active duty. The drama. A body is found in the dunes and it's up to the young recruits, Bri Parker and my girl, Allie Tremont to find the party where the drugs are being sold. Just like the first two, the story just moves along. The love between Tory and Reese is inspiring and the sex scenes are as hot as ever. Nicol Zanzarella narration is simply amazing. Her voice is so deep and well, you know. If you have immerse reading, I highly recommend reading it along with Nicol's narration. Audio or not, it's still a very good story to a great series. Enjoy

    Where does Beyond the Breakwater rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Right at the top. The first book in the series, Safe Harbor was good and so I wasn't expecting the second to be as good but I'm happy to say that I was wrong.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Beyond the Breakwater?

    When Carr saw Bri dancing with Allie. I thought that Nicol Zanzarella captured the emotions of Bri and Caroline wonderfully.


    What about Nicol Zanzarella’s performance did you like?

    Without a doubt, Allie Tremont. I love the southern accent.


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

    No. It was just a very good story that was well told.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the second of the Provincetown tales where Reese and Tory are trying to start a family while Reese is trying to catch an arsonist. We're introduced to Allie Tremont. A sexy and alluring cadet that has her sights set on Bri. Once again the narration is top notch and the sex was hot as ever. I fell in love with Allie and loved the way that Nicol Zanzarella captured her southern accent and personality. A great read as well as a great audio. Highly recommended.

    If you could rename Snow Falls, what would you call it?

    Lost and Found


    Any additional comments?

    A very good story with some endearing characters. Ryan and Jen was super and the supporting cast was equally entertaining. Jen's first time with a woman was both sexy and funny. Highly recommended.

    Saxon Sinclair, the broodingly secretive Chief of Trauma at a busy Manhattan hospital is less than pleased to learn that her new resident is going to be the subject of a documentary film. The arrival of Jude Castle, a fiery independent filmmaker, soon sets sparks flying as the two driven women clash both personally and professionally. Both have secrets they have spent a lifetime guarding, and both have chosen careers over love.

    If you could sum up Passion’s Bright Fury in three words, what would they be?

    Good, passionate, sexy


    What other book might you compare Passion’s Bright Fury to and why?

    Fated Love and Crosswords comes to mind. Like those stories, Passion deals with a highly talented surgeon who has to overcome personal issues for the sake of love. In Saxon's case, it's an overactive nervous system and a past that she likes to stay in the past.


    Which character – as performed by Coleen Marlo – was your favorite?

    Dr. Saxon Sinclair. Coleen Marlo did a fantastic job with the character.


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

    Neither. It was just a very good medical romance.


    Any additional comments?

    I was introduced to Saxon Sinclair at the end of Fated Love and was intrigued by the character. Passion didn't disappoint. Coleen Marlo's voice added so much to the characters Saxon and Jude as well as Maddie, Saxon's grandmother. I read the hard copy but the audio gave me something more.

    What made the experience of listening to Safe Harbor the most enjoyable?

    The narration. I always love when the voice vary from character to character. The distinction between Reese and Tory was very well done. The emotion that Nicol Zanzarellebut into her narration left me wanted more. All and all, very good.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The love between Reese and Tory. The emotions and anger of Bri Parker and her father, Nelson.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Reese first kissed Tory and Tory said, "Sheriff Colen, I do not intend to sleep with you in your patrol car."


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Reese was shot and Tory screamed at Nelson to let her go.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the beginning of a very good series in my opinion. Reese Colen and Tory King is the type of lovers that Radclyffe is known for. Two people who fall in love and stay in love. I would have liked to have known a little bit more about Kate, Reese's mother and her partner Jean. Nicol Zanzarelle did a masterful job of narration. Highly recommended.

    Whether in the Old West or the Australian outback, New England or the Great Plains, the lesbian cowboys in these stories work hard, ride hard, and play hard in the saddle and in bed. Contributors Radclyffe and Jove Belle depict the rough and tumble world of female rodeo riders, while Cheyenne Blue describes a charged encounter between a renegade cattle driver and national park ranger, and Delilah Devlin writes about a hired hand who may be a woman, but is more than a match for any man. Lesbian Cowboys is sexy, steamy, and crackling with erotic energy.

    Where does Lesbian Cowboys: Erotic Adventures rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Very High. I always loved lesbian westerns, unfortunately there's not enough of them. Good ones anyway. The stories were well written and most were well narrated. I liked some more than others and thought that a few would have stood well on their own as full novels.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Lesbian Cowboys: Erotic Adventures?

    The narration and voice acting that went into the telling of the stories.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    They were all pretty good. Some more than others The fact that the stories were narrated by different voice actors added some diversity to the stories.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Girl Cowboy and The Adventures Of A Lesbian Cowboy were the two best narrated and best written stories in my opinion.


    Any additional comments?

    The stories were a little tame as far as lesbian erotica goes, but they were still good and as I said earlier some of the stories could stand alone. It would be a special treat if some of the better lesbian westerns that were written would make their way to audio. Innocent Heart and Backwards To Oregon to name a few.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Anna. She was bold and sexy and I loved the accent.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Actually there's two. The first was when Anna confronted Sylvia and the second was when Anna dragged Kelly into the bathroom. "However, whenever. Remember?"


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    It was too short to be moved.


    Any additional comments?

    Well done, funny and sexy. The distinction between the characters was very well done. The only real draw back is that it was way too short. Less than 100 pages. I read stories that weren't have has good but twice as long. Tillie Hooper did an amazing job. The southern accent of Anna's was so sexy it gave me goose bumps.

    It's her birthday but lonely workaholic Dana Watts is at the office late, drafting a proposal. The very last interruption she expects comes in the form of the most beautiful breasts she has ever seen. These belong to an incredibly hot woman, who is standing in front of her, stripping to music. Laurel Stanley performs strip-o-grams to pay her way through school. She has never encountered a more ungrateful recipient than Dana. The uptight project manager makes it clear that she is furious to be distracted from her work by the "gift".

    I really liked the idea behind the story. The sex and romance between Dana and Laurel was very hot. Too bad they couldn't get someone else to do the audio.

    This story really didn't need the idea of committing mass murder for the sake of making money. On top of that, it ended badly.
