    Renowned professor Thomas F. Madden focuses his expertise on what has been called the most beautiful city in the world: Venice. In these lectures, Professor Madden explains how the city on the lagoon was established by refugees escaping the onslaught of northern “barbarians” invading the crumbling Roman Empire. Through its history, Venice housed the world’s leading merchants, thrived as a maritime powerhouse, and developed into an independent republic not unlike the present United States.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Modern Scholar: A History of Venice to be better than the print version?

    I always love audio version of lectures. Because I don't have much time to sit still and hold my books.


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

    I love the way he performed that to me more like entertaining while I learn more about Venice, that I wouldn't get the experience if I just read any book about the history Venice


    Any additional comments?

    I have some expectation when I visit Venice someday thanks for this lecture. I will not just enjoy the scenery, but perceive the city that has fascinating ancient history, with all that unique and antique beauty.

    As a lovely heiress, Roderica Delamore should be a prize catch--except for her shameful secret. She has the ability to hear the thoughts of those around her. Even her family and close friends can't hide from her strange gift. Knowing that she can never marry, for no man could bear it, Roddy still longs hopelessly for a family of her own. Until she meets the man she's been waiting for--the Earl of Iveragh, a mysterious Irish aristocrat whose thoughts are entirely closed to her.

    Story

    For the first time my venture with LK's work (Lessons From French) I gave her two thumbs up immediately, because the way she intertwined the story and weaved some humor in the dialogue. But in this story she weaved it with something supernatural makes my brain numb, even though she always has the signature love story of broken man who seek for repentance from the past I gave her three stars for it.
    And as usual Nicholas Boulton receive five stars from me for his fabulous performance.

    This is my second venture with the author after "The Noble Intention" which also I like because the leading female character has the signature of the author which is saucy,funny,courageous, and witty, which in my opinion, in real life I wouldn't find a single female dare or have a gut to say it aloud.
    As usual Allison Larkin is always giving her very well performance to voice the characters and make the story always enjoyable.

    Noble Britton suffered greatly at the hands of his first wife, and he refuses to fall into the same trap again. This time he intends to marry a quiet, biddable woman who will not draw attention to herself or cause scandal. Gillian Leigh's honest manner and spontaneous laughter attract him immediately. It matters little that she is accident-prone; he can provide the structure necessary to guide her. But unconventional, his new bride turns the tables on him, wreaking havoc on his orderly life.

    I assumed that Katie McAllister make her own signature by creating funny and witty leading female character, that makes her story enjoyable as light romance, especially if you looking for something uncomplicated story to listen at the end of the day. I love the way the narrator bring out the characters so well makes the story much more entertaining.

    Certainly the two should never have met. The handsome, wealthy Marquess of Rockingham was the most notorious man in London, as infamous for his violent temper as he was for his intemperate ways. Miss Lucinda Westerville was a country vicar's daughter, as innocent as she was lovely and as proper as a young lady could possibly be. Yet when this improbably matched pair met at a glittering social ball, they had struck the dubious bargain to become man and wife.

    Story

    This is my first with MC Beaton, and also my new venture to pick short story, in short my first impression of the title that is it's a combination of Barbara Cartland+Alfred Hitchcock+Agatha Christie that's why it becomes my new experience. I still want to venture another titles from the author to see if I can find something memorable and enjoyable to listen more than once.

    This is my first with LK's work, I spent my credit since it was pre-order, at that time I don't have much expectation. But now I'd like to say loudly I LOVE IT!!! This is the first audiobook that made me wanting for more for the author's previous titles, see that if it still generates the same feeling. As for the narrator I think he's done some magic to bring the story so vividly alive in my imagination. In other word LK and Nicholas have perfect collaboration, salute for them both!

    At first I chose randomly one of her work "The Bargain" and didn't expect much, but then it surprised me and wanted for more of her work. Now I venture the second of the Fallen Angels series, and I love it too. As always the characters and the storyline is richly developed, and full of unexpected twist as her distinguished uniqueness that hooked me for the first time.
    I wonder how the author has vast and unlimited imagination. I definitely look forward for the upcoming audiobook of the series.

Your husband has done a vanishing act, your teenage stepson is being bullied, and your math-whiz daughter has a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that you can't afford to pay for. That's Jess' life in a nutshell - until an unexpected knight-in-shining-armor offers to rescue them. Only Jess' knight turns out to be Geeky Ed, the obnoxious tech millionaire whose vacation home she happens to clean.
