Valeria McGregor was a better shot, a better fighter, and smarter than everyone she'd ever gone up against as an agent for the DEA. Then she'd uncovered illegal activity within her own organization and was fired as part of a cover-up. That was how she'd joined the secret group who reports only to the president. Valeria fully plans to find the men and women hell bent on ruling the world from the shadows, but she also has revenge on her mind.

This is one of the best romantic suspense books in a series that I've listened to in a long time. The fast pace of the storyline kept me listening and the lives of the characters of all three books were interwoven so seemlessly I would have thought they all played a main role from the beginning. This book was a masterpiece and Therese Plummer gave a great performance. Her timing was great and I enjoyed the accents.

This is a wonderful story of love lost and gained. Olivia is given the 'opportunity' to come into her own and grab life by the horns when her husband leaves her. Me being the hopeless romantic, before listening, hoped they would get back together, but after an hour into the book I was hoping for anything but that.

I have to say that the author, Jennifer Theriot, did a great job of weaving a feeling of fulfillment and a sense of love around the main and secondary characters. There were a lot of instances to learn as Olivia gained the self-confidence she'd been lacking. The author did a great job at developing Olivia's character and allowing the listener to get to know her.

I enjoyed the fact that this was a love story with mature characters that still had a lot of life to live. I also liked the fact that the author showed as much attention in the love the main characters had for each other as they had for their families and friends. I believe it rounded out the storyline.

I'm so glad I got the audio version of this book because there were so many wonderful surprises, but I'm not going to give them away.

This love story was well written and well rounded. Great job Jennifer Theriot.

When Lily Jacobs was born, she inherited Fazire - a genie. Her family had three wishes and they'd only ever used one so Fazire was stuck in the human world. This worked since he'd become a member of the family anyway. Even with a genie, Lily's young life wasn't perfect. To escape the kids making her miserable at school, Lily buried herself in romance novels. One day, when the teasing was just too much, she used one of her wishes.

I adored this book. Kristen Ashley' s masterful use of words to ring emotion from her readers catches me by surprise everytime. Just when I think she's headed one way she switches things up and I find myself in an even better world.
The land she created for Nate and Lily is no exception and their emotion-filled story was better than a pocket-full of great dreams.

I held out reading this book because I didn't want to see this series come to an end. I can't believe I waited as long as I did. The story of Noc and Franca was beautiful and done in a way I have grown use to Kristen Ashley doing. It was simply superb and as usual I didn't want to leave the world she created. Thank you Kristen and Tillie Hooper for another 5- star listen.

Take one strong-minded woman who has been raised by and on the sea and one brooding yet captivating captain that comes to her aid and you have yourself one smoldering adventure.
Prudence Drake's passion for life lands her in a world of trouble and in the hands of Captain Jasper Blackmore. Jasper is taken by the spirited young beauty but his current life has no room for love.
I liked the chemistry between these two and I could appreciate the complexity of feelings Jasper worked.

Amanda Mariel weaves wonderful worlds on the sea and land and James Young pulls you in with his performance of this story.

Ambrose Young was beautiful. He was tall and muscular, with hair that touched his shoulders and eyes that burned right through you. The kind of beautiful that graced the covers of romance novels, and Fern Taylor would know. She'd been reading them since she was 13. But maybe because he was so beautiful he was never someone Fern thought she could have...until he wasn't beautiful anymore.

I lost sleep on this book. I had a very hard time putting it down. I raced against myself because as much as I wanted to see what happened next I never wanted it to end.
This love story went through so many stages I felt rung out way before I got to the end. I laughed, cried, cheered and found myself smiling wide. If you even think about reading this book in secret just make sure you are all by yourself because Amy will pull the emotion from you.
I longed and loved with Fern, hurt with Ambrose, laughed with Bailey, wished with Elliott and cheered on the sidelines for them. I can't wait to visit another one of Amy Harmon's worlds.

Even though this is book 3 in the Highland Wishes series, I don't feel like I've missed a thing, only a desire to find out what books 1 and 2 are about. After this heart-jolting, emotionally gripping ride into a world I would probably not be educationally equipped to enter and survive in (in reality), I have to experience Jessi's worlds again.
Constance has planned out her life (boring), but her heart won't let her make the final step in sealing her fate with a passionless marriage. Her sister, knowing her better than anyone else, gives her an extraordinary gift...a chance at being truly happy. For Constance that means a trip back in time.
Willhelm Murray steps in and makes what could have been a very short trip into something that lasts through the ages. This drool-worthy Scot not only has the brawn and brain to see Constance safe, he also has the ability to make her consider revising her plans.
This story has a little of everything with its action-adventure, romance, a villian I wanted to see get exactly what he deserved and great secondary characters. It didn't rush through any of the storyline and it kept my attention from the beginning.
I'm on to book 1 and 2 in this series.

Just as I thought each prior book in this series was the best after listening to it; I was enamored with Victoria and Dmitri's story. It caught hold of me from the first minute and still hasn't let me go even as I hastily write this review. I loved everything about this book. I loved the twists and turns as well as the emotional upheaval. It all came together to form one fascinating listen. Kimberly Alexis' performance was excellent. At one point I thought it was a dual narration, she was so clever with her voices. This was an all around great experience!
