Christina Bennett had taken London society by storm. The ravishing beauty guarded the secret of her mysterious past until the night Lyon, Marquis of Lyonwood, stole a searching, sensuous kiss. An arrogant nobleman with a pirate's passions, he tasted the wildfire smoldering beneath Christina's cool charm and swore to possess her.... But the feisty and defiant Christina would not be so easily conquered. Mistress of her heart and of her fortune, she resisted Lyon's sensuous caresses.
the story was typical but the narration was extremely difficult to listen to. I almost didn't finish it due to the screeching most of the characters were doing or the very harsh whispering. it became almost painful to listen to I was really wincing, so save your ears and your credit or your money.
Cash Fraser is planning revenge, and to get it he needs the perfect woman. So he hires her. Abigail Butler has lost nearly everything in her life and she's about to lose the home she loves. Cash meets Abby, who is posing as a paid escort, and the minute he does he knows he's willing to pay for more than Abby being his pretend girlfriend. A lot more. Abby needs the money or the last thing that links her to her dead family and husband will be gone. The deal is struck, but both Cash and Abby get more than they bargained for.
reading some of the other reviews most said that the narration was poor well in all honesty the narration was the last problem with this book.
the story was boring and the characters were not believable and the plot bordered on if not completely crossed what is believable. all in all a pathetic attempt at a novel and i'm very sorry I spent my time listening to this and the nicest word I can come up with right now is trash.
As a stay-at-home mom with an adorable four-year-old son, Becky Taylor knows she has her hands full. Even though she's juggling her husband's important career ambitions, competitive playgroup moms, and a sister who won't stop reminding her of the dreams she once had to fight for social justice, Becky still feels something is missing. When she discovers a disc with damaging information about a megabank, Becky begins covertly moonlighting for one of the world's most controversial websites, exposing state and corporate secrets.
don't waste a credit or your money. pathetic, juvenile and extremely predictable. I regret that I wasted my time most of all.
When four classmates from a small Massachusetts college move to New York to make their way, they're broke, adrift, and buoyed only by their friendship and ambition. There is kind, handsome Willem, an aspiring actor; JB, a quick-witted, sometimes cruel Brooklyn-born painter seeking entry to the art world; Malcolm, a frustrated architect at a prominent firm; and withdrawn, brilliant, enigmatic Jude, who serves as their center of gravity.
beautifully written as well as performed both writer and narrator did an excellent job. the story was heartbreaking but totally kept my attention. brutal at times and as for me a mother as well as a care taker I just wanted to "mother" him and soothe all his pains away and help his heart to heal which in the end it never did. its' been awhile since I have read a book that I go to bed thinking about and wake up thinking about and I found myself hurrying through my chores trying to finish every thing up quickly so I could go listen,
its a book I wont soon forget.
In The Lightkeepers, we follow Miranda, a nature photographer who travels to the Farallon Islands, an exotic and dangerous archipelago off the coast of California, for a one-year residency capturing the landscape. Her only companions are the scientists studying there, odd and quirky refugees from the mainland living in rustic conditions; they document the fish populations around the island, the bold trio of sharks called the Sisters that hunt the surrounding waters, and the overwhelming bird population....
loved the book, loved the story, had to fast forward over a few of the animal parts because they were upsetting to me but it's a fairly true account of the reality in nature even though I don't like to hear about them, like Miranda in the book I dream about them. either way the book was interesting and it held my attention through out it's length.
loved the narrator she brought the book alive.

Newly graduated from college, aspiring writer Beth Hayes is elected by her family to house-sit the Island Gamble. Buoyed by sentimental memories of growing up on this tiny sandbar seemingly untouched by time, Beth vows to give herself over to the Lowcountry force and discover the wisdom it holds. Just as she vows she will never give into the delusional world of white picket fences, minivans, and eternal love, she meets Max Mitchell.
there have not been many books where I found the main character as dumb and immature as beth is in this book. I almost could not finish listening to it but I held out until the end hoping she would redeem her self in some fashion, she didn't.
I have liked other books by this author so it was disappointing that this book did not live up to her other books. I cannot recommend this book to any adult but perhaps 13 to 15 year old girls would like it.
Being confronted on the beach by a sexy stranger wasn't part of Natalie Conner's plans for a peaceful morning taking photos. And why on earth would he think she's taking pictures of him, anyway? Who is he? One thing’s for sure, he’s hot, and incredibly romantic, feeding Natalie’s wounded soul.
this book was so obviously imitating RPatz stardom that it was pretty pathetic and frankly i can't figure out why except maybe a lack of imagination on the authors part, glad it veered away from the obvious and tried to make the male lead have his own story. i like sex as much as the next person but that's all this couple did, i mean how many different ways is there to describe it? Frankly it got a bit boring. and why in the epilog did the male lead finally get his own voice? still can't figure that one out. i didn't bother to listen to the 30 minutes of the next book in the series that was "free" as i don't intend on getting it.
i wouldn't bother wasting your money or your credit.
With indifferent parents, Iona Sheehan grew up craving devotion and acceptance. From her maternal grandmother, she learned where to find both: a land of lush forests, dazzling lakes, and centuries-old legends. Ireland. County Mayo, to be exact. Where her ancestors’ blood and magic have flowed through generations - and where her destiny awaits.
i love most of Ms. Roberts novels but she really missed the mark on this one. the characters were weak and not believable not the ones in the 13th century and not the ones in the 21 century. the story lines was jut not unbelievable, through out the book i kept telling myself to just send it back and get my credit back but because it was a Nora Roberts book i just read on hoping it would get better but it never did. I will not be buying the additional books in this series.
i don't know if any one reading this knows that a previous novel written by Ms. Roberts called Whiskey Beach was offered free of charge if you had bought the first version of it with a narration that was so bad they re-did it with a different narrator and it made a huge difference, the second one was quite enjoyable. well the narrator doing this book was far beyond terrible. i actually had to take the earplugs out of my ears and come back later and try again.
this book was by far one of the worse experiences i have had with an audible book. I know Ms. Roberts has many fans and usually her books are great so i wonder if any of her readers who have read this book had the same experience i did?
Even the bright California sun can't whitewash the dark side of celebrity coupledom. Greedy music execs, merciless paparazzi, and Jake's wild past are lurking around every corner. Making matters worse, Jake announces he doesn't want kids, which just may be a deal breaker. Tru loves Jake more than anything. But when a devastating crisis threatens to destroy everything they've fought for, the couple must face the hard truth: What if, this time, love is not enough?
both the Mighty Storm and this the second book in this series was well worth the credit. i really loved the story and all the characters. I laughed and cried, mostly cried but i would gladly read it again an cry some more, it is that good. i was truly sorry to have it end.
Justine Eyre did an amazing job narrating but trust me when i say i will be looking for more stories by this author
It's been 12 years since Tru Bennett last saw Jake Wethers, her former best friend and boy she once loved. Jake Wethers, sexy, tattooed, and deliciously bad lead singer, and brains behind The Mighty Storm, one of biggest bands in the world, left Tru with a broken heart when he moved from England to America with his family when they were both 14. Sent to interview Jake for her music column by the magazine she works for, they are both unprepared for the sparks that fly the instant they reconnect.
i absolutely loved this book, after reading it once i returned to the beginning and read it again and i never do that. i might read a book more than once but never back to back. i just did not want to let these characters go yet. the story was very good, it kept my attention but i loved all the characters especially Jake. the author wrote the good boy - bad boy lead character as sexy as hell and i just could not get enough of him but she wrote all the other characters just as well. i really did not want it to end.
i have to comment on the narrator, i have listened to several book narrated by Justine Eyre and frankly have hated most of them and i almost passed on this book because she was the narrator but i went ahead and got the book anyway as i was intrigued by the story line and i have to say she (the narrator) made the book come alive for me. Ms. Eyre did a wonderful job. To me the conversations between all the characters no matter where they were or what topic i felt like i was eaves dropping on conversations that were taking place. Bravo Ms. Eyre, good job!
