Audible Editor Reviews

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.

Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Passion, Duty, Honor"

    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.

    "Uhm... IDK"

    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.

    "Blink and you'll miss it"

    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 .

    Story
    "Secret Service, President's Daughter, Love, Shots,"
    What made the experience of listening to Above All, Honor the most enjoyable?

    The pace of the story, it both fast and slow, It was basically the story of two people draw together when they shouldn't be, but that just makes more reason to do it. So the Secret Service Agent, Cam Roberts falls for the President's wayward lesbian daughter, who has made there life hell. But Blair Powell will not be told by anyone what to do. That is until sparks fly and also shoots. And they barely escape with there lives. Cam takes a bullet and Blair starts listening. It;s not a game any more until they find the guy after her. Only by the time they get close, Cam and Blair are too. And both fear for the others life. But I am getting ahead to the next book, In this book they think maybe they get him, Or do they? At any rate Blair sends Cam back to Washington because the thought of her being hurt is too much to bare. Read next book.


    What other book might you compare Above All, Honor to and why?

    For suspense, the series written by two writers, One I think is Kim Balwin the other I forget, they have whole series, with books like The Missing Lynx. Diamonds are forever, Gemini (Something) Sorry just can't remember. But they are really good with lots of action and falling in love, with girl meets girl stories. They have a secret organizes though E.L.I.T.E. couldn't tell what it stands for. Just exciting fast action stories with government agencies. Ok if you also want to go there to the source, Ian Fleming's James Bond books starting with Dr. No, but be warred they are very dated at this time, they were written in the 50's and de60's for a mostly male reader like comic books of that age. Yes girls liked them too. I know I did, not that I am that old. I am old enough. anyway, they really were the source for adventure writing so this kind style, only Radclyffe does more on the Romance side, at first and eases into the spy/modern terrorist of our age.


    What about Abby Craden’s performance did you like?

    Awesome, Ms Craden performs magically. There is another writer who I really like who use Ms Craden to read for her and I just love it. She makes so much better.


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

    Yes, only I don't have the time, so I am stuck listen to a few chapters a night, until I finish it. But love it. I read this years ago, and it just doesn't get old.


    Any additional comments?

    Read this book, then the next, then the next Just keep repeating, until you run out of books and start asking Radclyffe like Oliver "Please Mrs Move" Honestly this and other series rocked my world. all so different, and all so good, Justice, Providence town, L.L. Rand series about werewolves, Her Turn Back Time series, They all Good, her first Responders, I might left out some. They are just all good. So read these, Love Cam and Blair, cross the street to another series, and always start with book one, and enjoy.

    "Typical Radclyffe "

    I've read and listened to a lot of Radclyffe/LLRand and they all share a few things that have always bugged me. for one there is always a very distinct separation between characters i.e. butch and femme. and it's more than that. the butches are always nearly the same personality and the femmes are usually near enough the same though there is more variety there.
    another thing is that the story is actually good and the mystery intreging. but it's detracted by all the raging uncontrollable labido. it just seems that everyone is a represed nympho maniac and it distracts from the quality of the story.
    lastly the sex scenes. more so than most butch/femme romances the arousal and sex scenes have a distinct m/f feel. there's a lot of "getting hard". with very little change or imagination you can substitute the butches with men and story would be almost conpletly unaltered.
    as far as the narrator is concerned. she's great in all ways but one. she carries the story and she has a pleasant voice and good timing. but her butch sex voice is just disturbing. in fact a lot of the butch angry voice has the same problem. it seriously sounds like someone who is pissed off and constipated.

    "Truly unbelievable characters"

    I plodded through an hour or two, and I had to give up. The performance was awful, especially the sex-scenes between Blair and Cam. In my opinion; A strong female character as Cam doesn't need to be so masculine.

    "Despite Some Highlights...."

    There are several certainties in any book written by Radclyffe; two women who view the world differently; from divergent backgrounds will clash initially. However they will also feel a great passion for each other and after a few mandatory missteps they will inevitably be overcome by their feelings and unrequited love will be requited. Among the two principal characters in this one Agent Cameron Roberts is what you'd expect from a woman in Federal Law Enforcement. She's crisp, highly organized and very disciplined. The other protagonist; the president's daughter Blair Powell is a character who is not well cast in a lead role. She is a bitchy, whiny, self centered, self involved twit who perceives a few days in a luxury hotel as a major impediment to her happiness. She evidently has no problem pulling childish stunts that present a risk either to the agent's career, or worse, their lives. This book also gives a one chapter sneak peek at the sequel to this selection and her behavior presents just as self indulgent as it did in this book. Thus, I not only can't recommend this book; I'll avoid any subsequent books in the series.

    The story kept my interest. I thought the readers voice changes was odd and unattractive. I would recommend.

    "Love this series!"

    The narrator is great with the smokey voice and subtle change in tenor for each character.

    Radclyffe never fails to tell an intriguing tale.
    I'd love to hear more about Tanner Whitley. Audible needs to sell Tomorrow's Promise, another story to tug our heartstrings.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Above All, Honor?

    When Cam gets shot and falls to her knees knowing Blair is safe and sound


    What about Abby Craden’s performance did you like?

    One of the best I have heard


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

    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.
