The first book in Radclyffe's Honor series introduces Blair Powell, the headstrong daughter of the President of the United States who chafes at the Secret Service's constant surveillance. Things change when Cameron Roberts is assigned to watch her, and the two women develop a deep and forbidden attraction to each other, with Cameron caught between her duty and her love. In a forceful yet nuanced performance, Abby Craden conveys Cameron's hardened interior as it begins to melt around the seductive Blair, whose standoffish attitude morphs into something more vulnerable and quivering, her voice capturing the messiness of their illicit desire.
The first in the Honor series, Above All, Honor introduces single-minded Secret Service Agent Cameron Roberts and the woman she is sworn to protect - Blair Powell, the daughter of the President of the United States. Cam's duty is her life - and the only thing that keeps her from self-destructing under the unbearable weight of her own deep personal tragedy. However, she hasn't counted on the fact that the beautiful, willful first daughter will do anything in her power to escape the watchful eyes of her protectors, including seducing the agent in charge. Both women struggle with long-hidden secrets and dark passions as they are forced to confront their growing attraction amidst the escalating danger drawing ever closer to Blair. From the dark shadows of rough trade bars in Greenwich Village to the elite galleries of Soho, each must balance duty with desire and, ultimately, choose between love and honor.

This book is captivating, passionate, intense
Probably Blair, her sarcasm, whit and the chase of it all kept this book enticing the entire way through
I appreciate the changes in the tones and voices as Abby Craden tries to display emotion reeling from all characters
Definitely. I had the second one in my cart long before the first one was finished!
rambunctiously soft spoken.
There is no denying that the great Radclyffe has bought us a fine character in secret service agent Cameron Roberts ,strong, hot , racked with guilt and fighting the feelings she knows she shouldn't be having for the presidents daughter ,the feisty Blair Powell, the young woman she has been appointed to protect.
This would have been great if it didn't seemed rushed and nothing more than a set up for the sequel which you get a taste of at the end of this book .
Personally I felt short changed it felt like she had to force every cliche in the book ,in the book and once all the boxes where ticked it was sequel time .
She has me and I will read the next installment ,just be aware this book is just a really long prolog .
I mostly like to read fiction, series books of my favorite authors! Listening is a great way to read a lot.
The question is what didn't I like about this book? I loved the entire book and series that I've listened to it twice. I love Abby Craden's narration of the whole series...I also love the cross over characters into some of Radclyffe's other series' or stand alone books...
A Matter of Trust by Radclyffe
I would listen to Abby Craden read just about anything. She brought the characters to life which is so much better than just reading. You feel surrounded by all the characters as if they were friends...
Yes, but unfortunately could not.
Yes, I wish Abby Craden would narrate the stand alone books by Radclyffe which have not been recorded yet...Such as The Lonely Hearts Club, Night Call and Love's Tender Warriors..
I honestly don't have much to say after listening to this title. The potential was there I guess, but I didn't really enjoy how the author went about the story line. It was just a whole bunch of sex.
I was feeling the interactions between Blair and Cam, but all they were really were glances here and there and then there was the occasional times when Blair pretty much just groped and felt Cam up while Cam tried so hard to resist. And then wham! All of a sudden Cam got shot and there's just random declarations of love and then they're having sex. Maybe I missed something, yeah I probably did... Cause I can't get how they go from this crazy sexual tension and dancing around each other, to declarations of love and sex. I just wasn't feeling it.
It was good. Not the best not the worst.
I liked the story it was good. I am not big in the "scene" and this book has a lot of "scene" stuff in it. I do not know if that is how the "scene" really is but I do not like it. :( I am a prude i think.
So Abby Craden has a nice voice however whenever she is doing a butch female voice it sounds awful. Makes you want to turn off the the book! More often than not it is during a hot scene and the fact she tries to make the girls sound like gross deep throat men is just awful. So bad.
Yes. It's a good story.
Her voice lends so much more to the book and helps you visualize the characters better. Sometimes the voices that are put to the characters doesn't seem to fit. Like the voice of Stark. It sounds more like a little girl then a grown woman. But overall the reading is very good.
i can't do that! but what i can say is... Abby Craden has one sexy voice!
i've only heard her in the Honor series, and i like them all. but if i had to choose, probably Blair with Honor a very close second!
the narrator read this book just the way it should be done!
tons of sex!
she read them all wonderfully
DOWNLOAD this you wont be disappointed

This is THE lesbian Secret Service series. It’s all about passion versus duty, and danger versus excitement.
Agent Cameron Roberts is sworn to protect the daughter of the United States President, Blair Powell.
Both women have dark secrets, (that they’re lesbians, perhaps?) and of course Blair is the willful spoiled one who wants to do whatever she wants and get away with it. She decides to seduce Cameron (and of course, Cam dutifully, painfully tries to resist!)
Blair gets in danger (there’s a stalker) and Cam has to rescue her. This sets up the ULTIMATE, satisfying sex scene.
Abby Craden is just so versatile, she brings all they tension you could want to this racy thriller.
I love spy novels and have quite a collection - I however, was not aware that this was a book about a lesbian Secret Service Agent. I was extremely surprised - to each their own but it is something I chose not to read nor participate in. Had I known, I would not have bothered with it......for those that do not mind this subject line - I hope you all will enjoy!
The story line, minus the sex between the women, is good
Perhaps making it clear that this is about lesbians or alternative life styles would have been beneficial!
Above all honor is on my top fav books to listen to
When Cam gets shot and falls to her knees knowing Blair is safe and sound
One of the best I have heard
When Blair tries to get to Cam after she has been shot and Cam closes hers eyes knowing the woman she loves is safe
I love all of Radclyffe's book I have read nearly every one but to hear them come to life and hear there love and troubles is amazing. Above all honor was one of my first lesbian books and I fell in love with Cam and Blair now to listen to them I can't wait for all the series.
