Congratulations Anna Hackett for such a brilliant first Audiobook for your action-packed series Hell Squad.

Marcus has always been my favourite in your alien-invasion series and to hear both Elle and Marcus--spoiling your fans with two narrators for your alternating POV style of storytelling--is an amazing treat. All that heart-pumping, adrenalin-filled tension on paper (or ebook) just got enhanced with Audible.

Thankyou Samantha Cook and Jeffrey Kafer for your brilliant narration, giving life to fans' favourites Elle and Marcus

I've read Beautiful Player on its release date, before I discovered Audible, and before there was even Audible upgrade on my AmazonKindle App.

Of all the Beautiful books, Will and Hanna were my OTP. I memorised and mapped this book into memory.

Until Beautiful series' 10th and final book, where Will and Hanna were in Jensen and Pippa's story that I just had to go back to my OTP and relive their love story all over again. But this time, I bought the Audible version.

And as Will would say...Holy Hell.
Grace Grant and Sebastian York played Hanna and Will so beautifully, Will and Hanna came to life, with so much depth and emotion to their narration, CL were lucky to nab these two to narrate.

So, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to grab the next Audible narrated by Grace Grant and Sebastian York.

To CL, you continue to be an inspiration to fellow fanfiction writers around the world.

Cheers from Australia.

After listening to Book 1 with Audible upgrade, I patiently waited for this book to become available with an Audible upgrade as well. It was the best way to go through this book again.

Just like the first book, I initially read it from a boxed set 'Timeless Romance' if I'm not mistaken. But when Audible upgrades started appearing in KLV's individual books, I needed to hear how the narrator would shift from modern time and back to medieval.

And Brian J. Gill did a brilliant job with his flawless ability to alternate accents from British, American, and even Middle Eastern accents for Yousef and Kaleef. I loved the deep, rich voice he gave for Keiran and how he would boom loud and commanding orders versus the educated, American bossy voice for Bud. I giggled, swooned, and cried as I listened to this medieval-time travel tale; and laughed when Brian came upon musical lyrics. Again.

Audible upgrade made this romance story so vibrant and alive, I would go back to Book 1 all over again and enjoy this brilliant duology, which criss-crossed across time.

Having a narrator as brilliant as Gethyn Edwards had given this first book an added dimension in the brutal medieval politics, making it all more interesting to listen after reading about Gallus and his brothers.

Her boyfriend's attempted murder leaves Megan floundering in the ocean. Sinking without hope, the bright light she sees in the night sky isn't her doorway to heaven, but rather the beginning of her accidental abduction by a space pirate. While thankful of his rescue, Megan stays true to form and just can't keep her mouth shut, even when he keeps threatening to kill her - or auction her off to the highest bidder. Even odder, despite her decision to not get involved with her wickedly hot captor, she can't help craving his touch.

When I saw the Audible upgrade on my Kindle for Samsung mobile app, I was surprised to be treated not one, but two narrators!

With Audible, Eve's book came to life, adding an extra dimension to this humourous, sexy scifi romance. Kudos to the choice of narrators. Please, now that you've spoiled your readers, surely book 2 (Jaro's story) will also have an Audible upgrade soon?

Previously read this book from KLV's special boxset. Best enjoyed if read/listened as a duology w/ 'Kingdom Come'.

I was very impressed with Brian J. Gill's narration where he easily, smoothly switched between British and American accents vs medieval knight's accent.

I appreciated the story better with Audible, it adds depth to the time travel tale, differentiating modern vs medieval times

1332 A.D. - As the premier commander for Roger Mortimer, Earl of March, when he commandeered the throne from a young Edward III, Sir Mathias de Reyne is the type of knight that all men aspire to be: fair, powerful, intelligent, and bold. Men on both sides of the Mortimer/Edward lines respect and admire de Reyne for his outstanding character, including Dragonblade himself, Tate de Lara.
