I was warned about Tristan Cole. "Stay away from him," people said. "He's cruel." "He's cold." "He's damaged." It's easy to judge a man because of his past. To look at Tristan and see a monster. But I couldn't do that. I had to accept the wreckage that lived inside of him, because it also lived inside of me.
Beautifully human. I couldn’t stop listening. Well crafted story of stormy and redemptive love. The touch of the souls colliding out of of orbit, only to be mended by understanding and a rebirth of love. Powerful narrations and creative brilliance. I imagine that it was touch to write, but I am glad you did. You are my new author. Outstanding ❤️
Gwyneth Carswell, an English lady banished by her father to the harsh Scottish Highlands, wants nothing more than to take her young son away from the violence of two fighting clans - her own distant kin, the MacIrwins, and their enemies, the MacGraths. She risks everything to rescue the fierce MacGrath warrior from the battlefield where he's left for dead by her clan. She only knows she is inexplicably drawn to him and he wants peace as she does. When her clan learns of her betrayal, they seek vengeance. Dare she trust the enemy more than her own family? Laird Alasdair MacGrath is driven to end two-hundred years of feuding with the MacIrwins. But by taking in and protecting Lady Gwyneth and her son, he provokes more attacks from his mortal enemy. As the danger and conflict surrounding them escalate, Alasdair and Gwyneth discover an explosive passion neither of them expected. With the arrival of a powerful man from her past, a horrible decision confronts her - give up her son or the man she loves.
The performance put forth by the narrator was less then desirable.. I did not like his performance at all. It took away from the story, and presentation.
Why we think it’s a great listen: An all-time Audible favorite that mixes historic fiction, adventure, and romance with one of the most fascinating literary devices: time travel. Outlander introduces an exhilarating world of heroism and breathtaking thrills as one woman is torn between past and present, passion and love. In 1945, former combat nurse Claire Randall returns from World War II and joins her husband for a second honeymoon. But their blissful reunion is shattered....
This was a wonderful book to listen to. The story was enticing, enthralling and had you for rooting for the heart of the heroine. A right mixture of fantasy, history and love. Creativity at its best. I definitely will purchase another book by this author, and the performance by The narrator was superb.
Former special ops pilot Maya, home from the war, sees an unthinkable image captured by her nanny cam while she is at work: her two-year-old daughter playing with Maya's husband, Joe - who had been brutally murdered two weeks earlier. The provocative question at the heart of the mystery: Can you believe everything you see with your own eyes, even when you desperately want to?
This book had twist and turns that keep me enthralled! The main character was clever, loyal and you just cheered for her. Redemption and justice are themed here. Loved the storyline. It was well written and narrated. Three cheers for Harlan Coben. Your gifted story telling inspires me. January LaVoy, you made the story come alive! Loved your performance. Continue to prosper in your gift.
When Celia Arceneaux was elected mayor of Sinful, Louisiana, Fortune Redding expected trouble. The woman has an unmatched talent for making the worst of any situation, especially if it means getting revenge on her sworn enemies, Ida Belle and Gertie. At the Fourth of July celebration, an explosion rocks Sinful, and it's not from fireworks.
Love the story and brilliant narration. This just one more great book in the Miss Fortune series. Better entertainment than TV.!!!!!!
Audie Award, Mystery, 2016. When a mysterious package is delivered to Robin Ellacott, she is horrified to discover that it contains a woman's severed leg. Her boss, private detective Cormoran Strike, is less surprised but no less alarmed. There are four people from his past who he thinks could be responsible - and Strike knows that any one of them is capable of sustained and unspeakable brutality.
Simply enjoyed this storyline. Again I love the characters Strike and Robin. You have carefully constructed fictional characters that tug the reader into the storyline. The supporting cast of characters drive the story forward with such interesting quickness. However, I don't appreciate being kept out of the final loop of the "dynamic duo" wedding seen. "I do" Really Robert??? Lol ..... Nice touch though.😊

When novelist Owen Quine goes missing, his wife calls in private detective Cormoran Strike. At first, Mrs. Quine just thinks her husband has gone off by himself for a few days - as he has done before - and she wants Strike to find him and bring him home. But as Strike investigates, it becomes clear that there is more to Quine's disappearance than his wife realizes. The novelist has just completed a manuscript featuring poisonous pen-portraits of almost everyone he knows.
Intricate Storyline and character creation at its best. Strike and Robin are back at it. Seems like these characters are ever evolving. Smart, funny, probing and wicked plot. I hope the author has as much writing this story, as I did listening to it. The performance was artfully brilliant. Glenister you will always have a well deserved and paying carer. Voice actors#1! The gift is in your breath.

After losing his leg to a land mine in Afghanistan, Cormoran Strike is barely scraping by as a private investigator. Then John Bristow walks through his door with an amazing story: his sister, the legendary supermodel Lula Landry, famously fell to her death a few months earlier. The police ruled it a suicide, but John refuses to believe that. The case plunges Strike into the world of multimillionaire beauties, rock-star boyfriends, and desperate designers, and it introduces him to every variety of pleasure, enticement, seduction, and delusion known to man.
Strike and Robin are earthy characters with sharp wits. Strike has a place in my imagination that will be remember. The storyline is amazing, and the rest of the character bring the story to life. Great twist and turns. Kept me guessing until the very end. This book was intelligently crafted, and superbly performed. I am a new fan Robert Galbrath, and Robert Glenister.
Thanks to audible for the deals that make my discovery of new writers within reach.

The events that followed changed her life forever. Twelve years later, the woman now known as Abigail Lowery lives alone on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance programmer, she works at home designing sophisticated security systems.
I am a new Nora Roberts reader. I saw her in an interview. Checked her out, and now I am hooked.
Love this heroine, her smarts, her dog and her law man. The fabric of these characters and storyline was a nice blend of cold and hot. I am now all warm and smiley. The human condition is many things meshed together, and Nora, you spin s fabulous tale. Thanks for following your heart. Beauty is revealed when you ink.

This is was such an entertaining story. Spiritual, magical, action pack, and brilliant imaginary work of art.
