Another excellent chapter in this series, but please could the publishers employ a decent editor! I have read all the books and although I have enjoyed them they are just too long. A lot of extraneous details and descriptions could be shortened or just left out. Also the narrator murdering 'Danny Boy' was completely unnecessary and forced me to skip briskly to the next chapter.
Though born into a leopard's lair in the bayou, Joshua Tregre's fighting skills were honed in the rainforests of Borneo. Sleek and deadly, he's the perfect man to take over a crime syndicate back home in Louisiana's lush swamplands. His razor sharp instincts give him an edge in the violent underworld he knows so well, but even the watchful leopard inside him isn't prepared for the danger that comes from the girl next door.
This should have been good but it was actually a bit tedius. Two unlikely characters are now mates and are supposed to be getting to know each other. However for every 20 seconds of conversation there is another over the top sex scene. I know that Christine Feehan is all about sensual and sexy romance but this borders on boring rather than sensual.

Great listen. Lady Diana is in a no win situation. The ton Havel shunned her due to her mothers actions. Her father seems to have totally checked out of life. She has nothing to lose. Her bodyguard hates the upper classes. Yet love wins out. A bit unlikely but still a great listen.
Lady Emily Clearbrook secretly loved the Earl of Stonebridge, but one day, he left her without a word. Now, years later, the man mysteriously reappears and battles Emily's four brawny brothers to woo her again. But the bigger battle seems to be with Emily! This sweet historical romance series, about a duke's family, includes delightful, heartwarming love stories that bring the Regency period to life.
Story is quite good but the narrator lets the book down. Very breathy and excitable. It spoiled the book to be honest.

Talia has always known that she isn't suited for the life her elders have chosen for her. As part of a small, conservative community, she's never been allowed beyond the boundaries of her father's lands. Her only window to the outside world has been the few books she's been allowed to read, but this only fuels her desire to know more.
Couldn't say whether or not this book is any good. Couldn't cope with the narrator at all.
Annabel was about to take the veil to become a nun, when her mother suddenly arrived at the abbey to take her home...so that she can marry the Scottish laird who is betrothed to her runaway sister! She knows nothing about being a wife, nothing about how to run a household, and definitely nothing about the marriage bed. From the moment Ross MacKay sets eyes on Annabel, he is taken with his shy, sweet bride...and the fact that she's blessed with lush curves only makes him utter his own prayers of thanks. But when an enemy endangers her life, he'll move the Highlands themselves to save her.
Any additional comments?
Very enjoyable book. Always liked Lynsay Sands. Great to listen to while decorating my hallway.
Nestled on the Oregon coast is a small town of rocky beaches and rugged charm. Locals love the land’s unspoiled beauty. Developers see it as a potential gold mine. When newcomer Hank Cooper learns he’s been left an old friend’s entire beachfront property, he finds himself with a community’s destiny in his hands. Cooper has never been a man to settle in one place, and Thunder Point was supposed to be just another quick stop. But Cooper finds himself getting involved with the town. And with Sarah Dupre, a woman as complicated as she is beautiful.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Great introduction to a new series. Fans of Virgin River should like this. Can't wit for the next book.
Have you listened to any of Therese Plummer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I really enjoy Therese Plummer and wouldn't hesitate to buy any book narrated by her.

Single dad and Thunder Point's deputy sheriff "Mac" McCain has worked hard to keep his town safe and his daughter happy. Now he's found his own happiness with Gina James. The longtime friends have always shared the challenges and rewards of raising their adolescent daughters. With an unexpected romance growing between them, they're feeling like teenagers themselves - suddenly they can't get enough of each other. And just when things are really taking off, their lives are suddenly thrown into chaos. When Mac's long-lost ex-wife shows up in town, drama takes on a whole new meaning.
Would you listen to The Newcomer again? Why?
Yes definitely.Lovely book and in time I would revisit it again.
What other book might you compare The Newcomer to and why?
I would compare the whole Thunder Point series to Susan Mallery's Fools Gold series.
What does Therese Plummer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I can't say I prefer her to reading the book but I love listening to any books she has narrated. She is brilliant.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes. Usually I only listen when I am painting or crafting. With this book I wanted to keep on listening.
Turtle Island’s Yummy Santa contest is underway, and master of ceremonies Roni Templeman is ready to rock around the Christmas tree. After years of hiding the pain of loss behind her carefree lifestyle, she’s shocked to find one broad-shouldered contestant is much more than just a hot body. But is she ready to finally let someone unwrap her guarded heart? Single dad (and gorgeous nerd) Lucas Alexander would do anything to help the charity that’s done so much to help him - even if that means stripping down and suiting up as a sexy Santa.
What disappointed you about Hot Buttered Yum?
To be honest I loved the idea of the book but haven't gotten beyond chapter two.
What do you think your next listen will be?
I will never again buy a book with an uncredited narrator. I have been caught out before and foolishly allowed myself to be distracted by the blurb for 'Hot Buttered Rum' and ignored the uncredited narrator.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
She was dreadful. No voice tone - no ability to add character to the story. Simply awful.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Hot Buttered Yum?
Can't say - couldn't listen to enough of it to make that decision.
Any additional comments?
Not really only to say that commercially produced audiobooks should give all details - including narrator. If I don;t enjoy an author's books I don't red them - equally if I don't like a narrator, I will avoid listening to those books regardless of author.

Robyn Carr is a number-one New York Times best-selling author known for stories blending romance, warmth, and heartfelt charm. In The Hero, Devon McAllister takes her daughter and flees to the tiny, coastal town of Thunder Point, Oregon. There, she meets high school football coach Spencer Lawson, a widower focused on raising his young son. Neither of them are looking for love, but they may be the only ones who can heal their wounded hearts.
Where does The Hero rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I like the fact that the love hero is flawed like everyone but have to say that there was more than one hero in this book.
What did you like best about this story?
How even at the end people rose above themselves to save the day.
Which scene was your favorite?
When the heroine said 'I'll do this only once'.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Love wins out.
Any additional comments?
This whole series of books is excellent and the writing is enhanced by the wonderful narrator. If only all authors and publishers picked as well.
