Captain Quincy is a steady and reliable Royal Marines officer, decorated for gallantry after a mission that nearly killed her and the men under her command. At a crossroads in her career, Quincy reluctantly accepts when her old comrade, Queen Georgina, asks her to join the Royal Protection Command as the Queen Consort’s new protection officer. Holly Weaver, Royal Dresser and self-confessed man-eater, starts to question her sexuality when she has a girl-crush on famous actor, Story St. John, and then polo player and friend of George’s, Captain Quincy.

I loved Pioneering. The third book in the Vetted series. Anyone who has ever had a complaint about how "hard" your life is, should read this book. Also as a reminder of the lengths two women had to go to live together. Amy Deuchler does an excellent job with the narration.

I loved Cavalcade. I love the setting in the old west or should I say new west? Basically uncharted territory. Molly and Erin are fabulous. You think your life is tough today? Read this book and find out how tough life really was. I can’t wait for the rest of the series on audio. Amy Deuchler did an excellent job with the narration.

Hayley Carpenter has always dreamed of being a famous screenwriter, but dreams don’t pay bills and LA living isn’t cheap. So when a temp position at a celebrity gossip magazine becomes available, she goes after it. Emerson Sterling has been acting since she was little, but a rough patch as a teenager has given her a bad rap in Hollywood. Just when she thinks her dream role can turn around the public’s image of her, a conflict with her co-star and America’s Sweetheart, Rachel Blanche, puts her on the front cover of every magazine, the villain once again.

I loved Media Darling. Great story. Loved Hayley and Emerson. I hate the fact that the media hounds them. Now I feel justified in not paying any attention to gossip shows or gossip rags. If people stopped supporting gossip writers and photographers. The world would be a better place. Lori Prince does an excellent job with the narration.
