There was no doubt about it. What Miss Harriet Pomeroy needed was a man. Someone powerful and clever who could help her rout the unscrupulous thieves who were using her beloved caves to hide their loot. But when Harriet summoned Gideon Westbrook Viscount St. Justin to her aid, she could not know that she was summoning the devil himself.
Although the characters were somewhat one demensional...the story itself provided the enticement to cpntinue. i would love to know what is in store for the younger sister.
Sadie White’s summer job is at the beach, but she won’t be working as a lifeguard. Since her mom is pregnant and refuses to work, Sadie will be taking over as a domestic servant for a wealthy family on a nearby island. When the family arrives at their summer getaway, Sadie is surprised to learn that the owner of the house is Jax Stone, one of the hottest teen rockers in the world. If Sadie were normal - if she hadn’t spent her life raising her mother and taking care of the house - maybe she’d be excited about working for a rock star. But she’s not.
What made the experience of listening to Breathe the most enjoyable?
Wonderful romantic story where love concurs all. Having a male and female narrator only enhances the story.
Thirty-six of the most interesting writers in the Pacific Northwest came together for a week-long marathon of writing live on stage. The result? Hotel Angeline, a truly inventive novel that surprises at every turn of the page. Something is amiss at the Hotel Angeline, a rickety former mortuary perched atop Capitol Hill in rain-soaked Seattle. Fourteen-year-old Alexis Austin is fixing the plumbing, the tea, and all the problems of the world, it seems, in her landlady mother’s absence.
The story seemed to have the potential to end several time throughout the chapters.it was almost like the story was forced to continue in order to give the next author an opportunity to continue. For the reason it was somewhat disjointed

Set in the popular Stark world, featuring the beautiful billionaire Dallas Sykes, who was introduced to listeners in the Stark International trilogy.
I almost did not select this series because of the cheap smutty look of the cover. The story line twist and turns, the look back type of writing was great. I was pleasantly surprised.
Grace thinks she's finally found a place to belong. Coming off of 10 years of tragedy and disappointments, her arrival at The Snowflake Inn finally gives her a reason to have hope for her future and the possibility of her forever home. Until one man arrives with the power to take it all away. Riley's world has been turned upside down. He's back at the one place that he never wanted to return to, and it looks like he may be staying longer than he planned.
I choose this book in honor of a white Christmas story, and it did not disappoint. I got two wonderful romance stories for the price of one!
Trapped in the body of the legendary Scheherazade, a young woman named Camille finds herself in a land of harems, wizards, and ruthless rulers. A student of time travel, a descendant of a witch, and a curious and sensitive soul, Camille is trapped by the king's order. Night after night she's forced to tell stories of her travels across the planes in order to keep herself alive. With tales of the erotic, the romantic, the magical, and the sensual, she entertains the king in the hope that he will spare her life.
Lovely and compelling storyline; but it ended and I found my self wondering ... where is the rest of the story? Is there a sequel or what and also how did the character get to the time dimension - what's the background? I went away feeling frustrated and unsatisfied.

Emma is content. She's got a promising career in front of her, great friends, and a pretty amazing family. But her love life has been a little lacking lately. That's when fate steps in, and she crashes into a tall, dark, and handsome man - Teren Adams. He’s single, successful, an extraordinary gentleman, but he’s also secretive. And some of his secrets are more unusual than most people’s. For instance, he’s a "little bit" vampire. He has fangs, incredible hearing, unbelievable speed, and, on occasion, he enjoys drinking a steaming cup of blood. But he’s also very much alive.

Cole is successful beyond his wildest dreams. He can have any woman he wants, but there's only one he can't stop thinking about: his childhood sweetheart, Ren. He's never forgotten his first taste of innocent love and the desire that consumed them - or the pain he brought upon her . . .Her long ago brush with submission awakened a longing in Ren that drove her to walk the darker edge of desire. She's become a beautiful woman at ease with her sexuality and unapologetic about her need for a dominant man.
