No literary masterpiece here, just a good sexy romance filled with giggles! It borders on silly fluff, it’s completely outrageous and I for one LOVED it!!!

Excellent narration, with an occasional moment of minor confusion to catch up with whose thoughts or words I was hearing since on rare moments it was hard to tell. But all said and done it was so very good.

Sexy hot.

Creditworthy for sure. Although I got it in my audible romance package.

DEA agent Luke Callahan has suffered one loss too many and a fishing trip with his brothers is just what his broken spirit needs to heal. What he doesn't need is a gorgeous stowaway harboring secrets and running from killers. Never mind that he does his best work undercover. Maddie Kincaid is accustomed to trouble, but she'd hoped to leave it behind when she settled in peaceful Brazos Bend. Who would have guessed that helping a gentle old man would land her in the middle of an attempted murder - her own?

Ok, this was actually a good book. It was the perfect narrator for the book. I laughed... yep. I did. It wasn’t the most complex or the most enthralling but it was entertaining! There was some very well written heat...

Creditworthy? Yes, in my opinion it would be, if I hadn’t gotten it on the romance package that is.

Wow... this is such a good book... of course you need to take into account the fact that I love quirky, adore a little paranormal in my romance, and eat up the whole strong heroine from a broken soul thing! I DON’T like werewolves and if I’d actually looked at the cover art I might not have given this book a second glance, and in hindsight I’m very glad that that didn’t happen because this was such a good tale regardless of the shapeshifter thing. Witches, all forms of magic YES, shapeshifting or blood sucking, NO!

It was a GREAT listen too! Such an excellent performance. Five big shiny stars to Sonja Field.

Heat Factor, chart busting! Although so tastefully done that I didn’t even mind the assorted combinations....

Creditworthy? Good golly YES!

In death, they are purified. Holding his victims under water, he washes away their sins as they struggle for their last breath. Then he stakes their bodies to the ground, exposing them for what they really are: witches. No one knows about defence attorney Charlotte Wellington's murdered sister, or about her childhood spent with the carnival that's just arrived in town. For Charlotte, what's past is past. But others don't agree. And as a madman's body count rises, she and Detective Daniel Rokov are drawn into a mission that's become terrifyingly personal.

The happiest day of Payton Lambert's life was the day she graduated high school and watched Bald Knob, Kentucky, get smaller and smaller in her rearview mirror. She wanted more for her life than a tiny town where everyone knows your business and you can't find a decent cup of coffee for at least 40 miles. Twelve years later an unexpected phone call in the middle of the night has her packing up her life in Chicago and racing back home to the one person she ever regretted leaving behind.

I laughed so hard I had to turn it off and catch my breath! I grinned and giggled and wondered who I could share it with. Best of all... I didn’t have any solid suspicion who did it until it was almost to the big reveal!

Excellent performance! So well done that I would give it 10 stars if I could!

And second best too. These are easy tales with no real surprises but pleasant to experience with such phenomenal narration. This story was a tad grittier, if I can use that term for a fluffy romance... but it didn’t pull me along as well as the first.

There is heat, very frank sexual scenes and language.

Creditworthy? Well, after the first one I may not have actually used a credit for another, it was obvious it would be predictable, but I was thoroughly pleased that I got it in my romance package, thank you Audible!

Well written and performed. This deep twisted tale wound its way through a maze of clues and histories to expertly weave an intriguing spell upon the listener.

Taking place in the U.K. it did throw this American girl for a loop here and there... but nothing that took away from the expertly crafted experience.

Heat Factor totally non existent, although the subject matter was frankly a tad shocking and only sort of graphic.

Creditworthy? Heavens yes!

Though barely out of the schoolroom, Melody Ashton was determined to save her mother from scandal. Guardian of several "orphans" (in actuality the illegitimate children of the ton!) poor Mama was accused of pilfering contributions. To make matters worse, the infuriatingly handsome Lord Coe had accused them all of blackmailing his sister, whose child resided with them!

But there was one who miraculously escaped death, just before the Strangler disappeared. Lara Church has only hazy memories of her long-ago attack. What she does have is a home in Austin, a job, and a chance at a normal life at last. Then Texas Ranger James Beck arrives on her doorstep with shattering news: The Strangler is back....

Ok, I really don’t know why this book is listed as a romance.... yeah yeah yeah, it ends in a relationship and a quick sex scene. But it’s not emotion driven, there is no steam, no chemistry or sexual tension, no “love” and heart strings romance .... there is A romance but it’s not the main story.

As a romance I give this book just three and a half stars at best. But as a mystery/crime novel it deserves five. It’s not a literary masterpiece but it is a very enjoyable story that actually delivers a twist that you can’t see coming.... very well written.

Excellent narration!

Creditworthy? YES! But I got it in the “romance” package.....
