After reading the Publisher's summary I wasn't expecting to like this book as much I did. The story is a different western style romance that drew me in and connected me to the characters immediately. This book is a great "feel good" choice to listen to on a rainy, lazy day. Leonor A. Woolworth, as always, adds dimension to the stories she reads. Keep this book in mind if you enjoy western romances with a good story ๐Ÿ˜‰

This is the kind of story that tugs at the heart right from the beginning and leads you through a journey of life lessons and love. It is a well written tale of love lost then found again. Truly heartwarming! I am looking forward to the next book in this series and hope that Leonor A Woodworth narrates the rest of the series. Her narration is perfect for this type of adventure.

The Fireflies series is a wonderful love journey that does not disappoint. Each book can stand alone but I recommend starting with the first book so you don't miss some poignant scenes and foundational character development.

This third book features Brenna and Dante. Their love hate relationship and bantering actually begins in book one but blossoms in this book. It is a well written story that is filled with romance, wonderful scenes and delightful characters. There is some swearing (but not a lot) and has non detailed sexual encounters. A winner for adult readers!

Pam Dougherty's narration is a consistently wonderful. She gives each voice a unique quality which adds dimension to the story. A favorite narrator for sure! ๐ŸŒธ

This is a relatively short book for Kathryn Le Veque standards so I wasn't surprised that, by the end of the book, I truly wished it was longer. I know this Pirate series is written in "tag team" with Eliza Knight but, since the other audio books aren't available at the time I wrote this review, it only leaves me wanting more.

This book has charming Pirates, has a fun storyline, and is very entertaining in a sweet yet predictable way. This is a good series for Pirate enthusiasts โš“. The narration was wonderful. Brian J Gill has such a perfect voice for Le Veque's books and he never disappoints me.๐Ÿ˜Š I am anticipating the other audio books in this series. ๐Ÿ’•

CPA Rebecca Walker wields a hammer and saw with skill, but it's like fighting tooth and nail to prove to her chauvinistic father that she's capable of managing the family construction business. Romance is a luxury Rebecca can't afford. Thanks to his past, romance isn't in Sean Kinkaid's future, so when Rebecca proposes friends with benefits, Sean agrees. It's the perfect scenario until love sneaks in - and Sean's secrets tear them apart.

I totally enjoyed book 1 in this series so when this book became available I I knew I had to check it out.

Although this is book 2 in the series it is definitely a stand alone book. Each book focuses on different family members so, even though the characters from the previous book are included, you don't lose any story or character development.

This book focuses on Rebecca and Sean. I don't want to give the story away but it's basically a story of two lonely hearts learn their relationship unexpectedly turns to love. It's a charming story that is more adult oriented because it does have some swearing and sexual encounters but they are not detailed. I recommend this series to those who enjoy well written stories with a bit of heat.

Loved the narration of Pam Dougherty. She has the kind of voice that lets you feel transported into the story. A pleasure to listen to! ๐Ÿ’Ÿ

An exciting new Amish-meets-Wild West adventure from bestselling authors Lori Copeland and Virginia Smith weaves an entertaining and romantic tale for devoted fans and new readers. Kansas,1881--On a trip to visit relatives, Emma Switzer's Amish family is robbed of all their possessions, leaving them destitute and stranded on the prairie. Walking into the nearest trading settlement, they pray to the Lord for someone to help. When a man lands in the dust at her feet, Emma looks down at him and thinks, The Lord might have cleaned him up first. Luke Carson, heading up his first cattle drive, is not planning on being the answer to anyone's prayers, but it looks as though God has something else in mind for this kind and gentle man. Plain and rugged--do the two mix? And what happens when a dedicated Amish woman and a stubborn trail boss prove to be each other's match?
