Some days, all you need is a message from a stranger. Ruby Santos knew exactly what she was getting herself into when she signed up to write a soldier overseas. The guidelines were simple: one letter or email a week for the length of his or her deployment. Care packages were optional. Been there, done that. She thought she knew what to expect. What she didn't count on was falling in love with the guy.
loved it, great performance, worth the credit. characters were great. will look for more from this author
When biologist Gillian Campbell makes an offhand comment about a family curse during a TV interview, she has no idea what her words will set in motion. Within days, Gillian finds herself at the mercy of a member of the C7, a secretive international group of power brokers with a dangerous game: competing to find the world’s most elusive treasures, no matter the cost, in money or in lives.
just right in every way. not too dark, not too fluffy. narration great. really enjoyed this one.
A new standalone novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author, Vi Keeland. The night I met Drew Jagger, he'd just broken into my new Park Avenue office. I dialed 9-1-1 before proceeding to attack him with my fancy new Krav Maga skills. He quickly restrained me, then chuckled, finding my attempted assault amusing. Of course, my intruder had to be arrogant. Only, turned out, he wasn't an intruder at all. Drew was the rightful occupant of my new office. He'd been on vacation while his posh space was renovated.
Narration was really good, story was pretty good. Reminded me of the old Harlequin romance days of my youth. All thru this listen I kept thinking, have I read this before??the plot seemed so familiar. Just not a bad overall listen.
Naomi Bowes lost her innocence the night she followed her father into the woods. In freeing the girl trapped in the root cellar, Naomi revealed the horrible extent of her father's crimes and made him infamous. Now a successful photographer living under the name Naomi Carson, she has found a place that calls to her, thousands of miles away from everything she's ever known. Naomi wants to embrace the solitude, but the residents of Sunrise Cove keep forcing her to open up - especially the determined Xander Keaton.
Typical Nora Roberts story, but when I say typical I do not mean repetitive or boring. Ms Roberts just has a style all her own that many have tried to duplicate but never can replicate. I loved that this story was told from the perpetrators families point of view, thus showing how they were also victims. The narration was very good and added to the story. There are always favorites from any author, some you just like more then others, for me it is The Witness, but I am always excited when a new release from NR is coming up and rarely am I disappointed.
A social experiment (a scary but exciting concept): marry a total stranger, live together for six months, and journal everything. Feelings. Fights. All of it. After six months, we each get $50,000 in exchange for our journals, whether we stay married or not. But the goal is to commit to the experience and see if the relationship experts could put together the perfect matches. I have never been lucky in love. This was my chance to find my soulmate. I couldn't wait to meet the man the experts felt was perfect for me.
I don't know why I started this series with book 4, except that the story line caught my attention more then the others. I may go back and get the first two. I have Vandal also but that one is a little dark and i can only do small doses of that one at a time. That being said, wow I loved Talon and Asia. Would an idea like that really work? Interesting concept. I need to go backwards now and find out if info on Asher is in a previous book or his story is yet to come. Also Mica, wow really don't like him, hope there is a good reason he is who he is.

Troy Brennan: Every Southie in Boston knows that name. The son of a dead mobster. The heartthrob with steel-blue eyes. "The Fixer" who can make or break you in this city. Oh, and my new husband. Sparrow Raynes: That's me. No one seemed to remember my name up until he barged into my life. But then he caged me. Kidnapped me. And killed every chance I had to run away from the place where we grew up.
I have been trying to branch out a bit from my normal go to listens, and this one looked interesting. I liked the realistic characters in this story. The bad guy didn't magically turn into prince charming,not saying there is anything wrong with that. but in this story they are who they are. Sparrow and Troy were great for each other. Narration was pretty good too. I would recommend this one.

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.
Let me first say that I am soooo beyond the age of relating to the "coming of age" group its not even funny. That being said I normally skip right over any thing that is of that ilk. For some reason the story line grabbed me and I gave this one a chance. Boy when you finish a read and three to four days later it is still lingering on your mind you know you stumbled on something very special. If you ever read any of my reviews, you will know that I give no synopsis, or spoilers. Just let me say there was not one thing I did not like about this story. The characters were very believable and the narration was superb. This is one of me favorites I have listened to this year. My first Amy Harmon read, but definitely not my last. Fern and Ambrose will live on in my mind, would love and continuation of their story.
Paradise, Idaho, may not be the largest town, but for newly minted professor Zoe Santangelo, it's the first step on the path to her big break. After teaching in a small Idaho school, her next stop is the Ivy League, and no one is going to stand in her way. She'll do what it takes to move up, to protect her students from a creepy campus stalker - and to protect her heart from Cal Jackson, the hot, hunky cowboy who keeps coming to her rescue.
If you liked her New Zealand series you will like this new one too. Also you cant go wrong with Mr sexy voice oh I mean Phil Gigante as the male narrator. OMG when he does that Phil chuckle well I will be nice and just say I get tingles all over. Not to be left out Natalie Ross is one of my top ten favorite female narrators.

Deacon has an ugly history, a history that broke him, leaving him a ghost of a man. Out of necessity he left the normal world to descend into the criminal world and found he fit. So he stayed. Cold as ice and living off the grid, Deacon has no intention to connect, not with anyone. Then he returns to some remote cabins in the Colorado Mountains and finds they have new owners. One of them is Cassidy Swallow, a young woman willing to work hard to live her quiet dream in a house by a river surrounded by aspen and pine.
I really liked Knight and Anya, hot hot hot, but Deacon took my heart. Maybe because I am always attracted to the strong but wounded type. Deacon and Cassidy were just meant to be. There are some references to some songs towards the end of the book. I looked them up and oh my goodness, I purchased them for my IPOD and listened to them and then replayed the end of the book. Yup it was that good. There were some moments from Deacons past that were so graphic it was hard to get the visual out of my head for a long time. Wow sign of a great writer yea?
Grace Dillon was a champion figure skater until she moved to Thunder Point to escape the ruthless world of fame and competition. And though she's proud of the quiet, self-sufficient life she's created running a successful flower shop, she knows something is missing. Her life could use a little excitement.
I like Robin Carr and love Therese Plummer. This story was typical Carr, good story, good characters. Virgin River is still my favorite. This series, tho good, doesn't seem to have the heart and soul Virgin River has.
