Adele Clee imagination is brilliant! I’ve read and listened to many book series “The Brotherhood” is by far one of my top favorites of all time. I am so glad I was able to start with the first book and continue in order with the series. By doing so I was able to appreciate each book, there connection and, all three as the whole within the stories. Bravo! Kylie Stewart knows how to tell a story. Kylie’s narrative acting gave life to each character. Sensational! I can only hope there’s more coming from this series and Kylie Stewart agrees to lend her voice and talent to the next “brotherhood” brothers in need.

I can admit I was a bit skeptic about this story but only until the first chapter then, I just couldn’t put it down. Narrator did a good job with making each character believable and full of life. I am excited to move to the next book in the series. Happy reading!

But a letter from a long-lost love sends Daisy and her young son to her Scottish Highland estate to buy time for his return. Along the way she encounters the powerful Cailean Mackenzie, laird of Arrandale and a notorious smuggler, and she is utterly - though unwillingly - bewitched.

What a bunch of beloved characters, the story is fresh and realistic. My favorite was of corse the love story. The narrator does a fantastic job portraying each characters personally. These main characters truly know how to treat each other. The story will inspire the couple in-love and all those individuals looking for their love of a lifetime. I enjoyed the story and I hope you do too...Happy Listening everybody!

If you love time travel, the hunky, stubborn, funny He-man type and, when, the beautiful, kind, sassy, heroine teaches the He-man a thing or two well, this is the romance book for you. I don’t usefully listen to romance books that are more then 8 hours long cause, most tend to repeat and lag on. But, Forever His”was the best 15 hours I’ve ever spent, I got so rapped up in the story I couldn’t stop listening. I loved it and you will too!

“The sense of duty is not love but, love is a sense of duty we protect”tmg.

Edward and Clare’s story begins when Edward is introduced to a girl baby and told she is his betrothed. One night when the girl child Clare was 16 years old Edward comes for a visit and Clare over hears a conversation between Edward and a courtesan regarding his true feelings for his betrothed. Clare although in love with Edward decides she will not marry Edward EVER! So when Edward comes to claim his betrothed a few years later—all hell breaks out and the battle between duty and Love well, let’s just say: only one can be a winner!

I enjoyed Edward and Clare story. The 3rd book in the Byron series didn’t disappoint! The narrator was again excellent in her performance and Tracy Anne Warren can truly spin a tale. 5 Stars all the way!
