There are many things I liked about this story. It is the classic story of the battle between good and evil. Though it is a well-written story, there is a lot going on as the story develops. At times, I had a bit of trouble following the story.

I particularly liked the relationship between the brothers. The relationship between the hero/heroine, though, I never really felt an emotional connection to them. Though the plot is a good one, it felt like it got a little out of hand, too complicated and with too much going on, to stay focused on the main point of the story. I ended up losing interest in the final outcome.

Sir Alanbart avoids action, recoils from romance, and shuns self-sacrifice; yet when he finds himself drawn into a harebrained attempt to rescue King Arthur, he becomes a victim of all three, and then poor Alanbart must fight hard to stay true to his cowardly and indolent nature. 

Three Days and Two Knights is a genre crossover that blends fantasy adventure, comedy, and romance in a historical literary setting.

This is a fascinating story full of witty and wonderful characters. I particularly like the relationships between all the main characters. There are several long, very descriptive battle scenes. In all, it is a delightful tale, full of adventure, chivalry, humor, and a bit of romance. I enjoyed it very much and would definitely read more by this author and listen to others by this narrator.

Jules, the Sixth Duke of Dandridge disdains Society and all its trappings, preferring the country's solitude and peace. Already jaded and cynical since the woman he loved died years ago, he's become even more so since unexpectedly inheriting a dukedom's responsibilities and finding himself the target of every husband-hunting vixen in London.

Having read several of this author's books, I think I may have found a new favorite (well, a close second anyway). This is another wonderful story. I love all the characters. Colette Cameron always provides plenty of wonderfully endearing characters, who quite often find themselves in a fix.

The story develops nicely at a good pace and holds the reader's interest. If you like historical romances, I highly recommend this one or anything by this author. They are all very good.

The narrator did a very good job, giving each character a distinct voice. For me, the narration really enhanced the story.

This book is fantastic! One of the best books I've read this year. The coming of age/road trip story features three truly memorable characters, Ramie Redfeather, Chas Sweeney, and Mae B. Laroux, as they meet up with one another on the road and travel together in search of the mystical musician (and possibly Ramie's father) Redfeather.

I laughed out loud at some of the antics and conversations between these three characters. The way the author gets inside the mind of teenage boys, I was surprised to realize it is a female author. Her perception and spot on teen male attitude is reminiscent of S.E. Hinton's The Outsiders. Very well done. I love Ramie's laid back, serious attitude, and the always entertaining, often irritating Chas is just as endearing.

The word usage and bits of knowledge spouted by all three characters is amazing. It really held me captive. At one point, Chas is described as having "a word arsenal and he's not afraid to use it." This, to me, describes this fantastic author. I can't wait to read more of her stories.

I listened to the audio version of this book and narrator, Aaron Landon, did a wonderful job. I felt like I was there, riding in the car with these characters.

Tainted by scandal, Raven Eyez leaves New York to return to her mother's hometown of Heartsbridge, Texas. If that wasn't bad enough, she reads in a celebrity magazine that her childhood sweetheart, who broke her heart five years ago, is getting married. The stress is unbearable, and when she starts hearing voices whispering for her to right a wrong she has no recollection of making, she's sure she is going mad. Things go from weird to completely unbelievable when an innocent trip to a diner leaves her stranded in Heartsbridge in the year 1880.

I enjoyed this continuation of the Timeless Hearts series. I really like both of the main characters, Ryder and Torin. It was a bit emotional when Ryder went to visit the family he'd left 14 years earlier. That was one of my favorite parts of this story.

Ms. Sinclair's writing is clear, engaging, and easy to follow. Her stories unfold with ease and at a good pace. i can see where this one might be a little confusing if you haven't read the previous books in the series, but it is still a stand alone story that does fine on its own.

I listened to the audio version and narrator, Meghan Kelly, does a fantastic job as always. Even though most of the characters are males, she does a good job of giving each one a voice that is easily distinguishable from the others.

Definitely want to read more by this author and by the narrator.

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.

This is the first book I've read by this author. Though I like the idea this story presented (who wouldn't like to have a genie as your best friend?), I didn't like it as well as I'd hoped. The story is well-written, and I loved the characters, but for me it seemed way too long.

I also would have liked it if there would have been more to the background stories of Lily's parents and grandmother. To me, it seemed more like a story about family relationships, with a bit of added romance, rather than strictly a romance story. I feel like the family dynamics throughout the story played an important part in the story, and should have been explored more. Anyway, that's how I would have written it. It actually would have been good to have all three stories as separate, shorter stories is a series.

I felt like the first part of the book, with Lily's grandmother and then her parents' story, was rushed through, and the part about Lily and Nathaniel went on and on. I would definitely check out more by this author, though.

I really enjoyed the narration by Carly Robins. Truthfully, I'm not sure I would have stuck it out for the whole story if I had been reading it myself. Her narration really made it a good one to listen to.

This enchanting story revolves around the relationship between Samuelle, a young boy, and his grandfather Leo. Leo has learned that he suffers from a terminal illness, and in his wistful skimming of artifacts from the past, he uncovers treasured mementos of his earliest years, growing up in the romantic city of Venice.

I really enjoyed this enchanting tale of a grandfather's remembrance of his past and sharing it with his young grandson. It's a lovely story that takes the reader along with them as they journey to Venice, Italy, and the grandfather shares the family history with his grandson. I felt like I was there with them. The writing is beautiful and the descriptions vivid and memorable.

I listened to the audio version and narrator, Kevin E. Green, did such a fantastic job of bringing this story to life. I'm not sure I would have enjoyed it as much if I'd been reading it myself.

My only complaint is that is is so short. I would have enjoyed a little bit longer of a story, but the author did a fine job and it is a beautiful story.

This is a richly detailed story, full of interesting characters and imaginative adventures. The historical aspect alone makes this a worthwhile read, but it is also full of love, romance, and the beauty of music in the midst of the chaotic world around us.

As a history lover and a music lover, I found this a very rewarding read. At times, I felt as though I were there sharing in the experiences of the characters.

I listened to the audio version, which is narrated by the author. She did a really good job with the narration, but I think I might have enjoyed the story a bit more, had I been reading it rather than listening.

Definitely a recommended read, especially if you like historical novels.

Brother Dust, a changeling born amidst a sandstorm, has seen it all before. He's watched as the heavy imperial boots have crushed dozens of planets. Watched as their drills pierce the core of a world, slowly killing it while the natives are kept docile, and compliant with the gifts and pleasures the empire brings them from the stars.

If you like on the edge of your seat sci-fi, I think you might enjoy this story. The non-stop action begins with chapter one and immediately drew me in to the story. There is a bit too much death and destruction for my taste, but it's a good story. I loved all of the characters and their relationships with one another. I particularly liked the character, Dust.

I liked the way the back stories of the main characters were unveiled within the story.
It also has spiritual undertones which I liked.

I listened to the audio version and enjoyed the narration of Scott Berrier.
