I believe in love. It just doesn’t believe in me. I date. I’m all for giving guys a chance. I’ve just never met the one. Until on a spring morning in the English countryside, a tall, dark stranger emerges from the mist. Logan Steele is all tousled hair, hard chest, and lips so perfect I want to reach out and touch them, just to check they’re real. Did I mention he’s an Earl with a self-made fortune? But when I find out Logan Steele is out to destroy everything I’ve dedicated my life to protect, the chemistry disappears and the hope that had blossomed my chest turns to rage.

Was I enjoying Jane Austen or Louise Bay? Haha I loved it!! Thank you Louise! Such a sweet romantic passionate old school novel. Wow! From the very beginning I fell in love with Logan and Darcy!
Shane was extraordinary as usual and Imogen was out of this world! It was the first time listening to her and she was lovely! So charming! It brought me back in time and I truly felt the country and those enchanted lands of England! Can’t wait for more Louise.

The intrigue is getting real! This is an intense romance and we are finally getting to know more about Tal’s secrets/tragic past experiences from his childhood. It is a truly wonderful continuation to the Steele brothers saga.
So much suspense, kept on saying OMG, OMG! Good ones and bad ones, so many feelings, sexiness to the max, loved sex scenes! Helen goes into detail and I love her for that!Sebastian is a hottie and Jade is a sweetheart. They are indeed extraordinary!
Can’t wait to dive into the next one. I kind of hate and love the cliffhanger end! I’m happy there is more but not happy that I have to buy more credits! I am finishing these books way too fast!❤️

So much fun to listen to such a wonderful classic by J.R.R. Tolkien, who never cease to amaze with his immense inspirational creation of characters. Forever grateful for Tolkien’s books! In The Hobbit you will find where everyone comes from and you will embark on a journey along the hobbits, dwarfs, elves, the great wizard Gandalf, wargs, goblins, trolls, humans and Smaug, the dragon. Rob Inglis does an excellent job at narrating, he speaks and sings as Tolkien would’ve wished his story to be told.

This was my first Helen Hardt’s novel and I can’t wait to dive in the rest of the saga books! Wonderful story, I loved the hidden drama and tragic secrets behind Tal’s past and personality. Jade is so sweet and caring and wishes to help him heal.
Their passionate connection and encounters are hot hot sexy hot. Helen is an extraordinary writer! I was so immersed in the scenes throughout the whole book.
Sebastian was out of this world of course. He is my platonic love haha and Neva was good too.

Growing up, the three of us were friends. He was the nerd. I was the playboy. She was the beauty. Deep down, I only ever wanted her. I kept it inside because Rory and I made a pact that our friend, Amber, was off-limits. He lied. I went off to college, and he got the girl. Amber never knew how I felt. They were together for years - before he broke her heart. Through it all and across the miles, she and I casually stayed in touch. When my job sent me to Boston for a three-month contract position, Amber let me stay in her spare room.

I was hooked from the very beginning, It was my first Penelope Ward’s book and It is one of my favorites now!! It is truly such an amazing book. Love the storyline, the characters, gosh, everything! My heart was beating so hard. I had a large smile throughout the whole book and got the chills and laughed out loud many times. Penelope does an incredible job with this excellent romance, just pure excitement and constant OMG! She kept on surprising me with the direction of the storyline. Not a typical obvious romantic stupid story. It was full of surprises, all the emotions and feelings. ❤️Channing is a God! Everyone’s dream! He is hot beautiful inside and out, incredible in bed, an awesome cook, he is in love with the kitty he just found in the street, he is responsible, hard-working, funny, likes reading people, having conversations, likes books, what else could he possibly be!? Just butterflies 🦋 feelings book.🤤
Thank you Penelope for an orgasmic novel.
I am also pretty sure I’m in love with Sebastian, thaaattt voice hmmmmm.. Andi was impeccable as usual..
And by the way thought this would make a great movie!

A tattooed British street fighter, he's the campus bad boy she's supposed to avoid, but when he saves her from a frat party gone bad, all her rules about sex and love fly out the window.

It was a good romantic story but (sigh...) I had higher expectations based on reviews..
Having recently read Emma Chase, E.L. James & Louise Bay this book comes lower on my enjoyment list but it was worth the listening.
I loved Declan’s character, he is sweet, sexy and cared so much for Elizabeth who is so scared of letting anyone in after her intimidating and brutal past experiences.
Overall a good romantic a bit tragic love story that was obviously well narrated by Summer and John.

I was born into British aristocracy, but I've made my fortune in Manhattan. New York is now my kingdom. Back in Britain, my family is fighting over who's the next Duke of Fairfax. The rules say it's me - if I'm married. It's not a trade-off worth making. I could never limit myself to just one woman. Or so I thought until my world is turned upside down. Now, the only way I can save the empire I built is to inherit the title I've never wanted - so I need a wife. To take my mind off business I need a night that's all pleasure.

I keep my two worlds separate. At work, I'm King of Wall Street. The heaviest hitters in Manhattan come to me to make money. They do whatever I say because I'm always right. I'm shrewd. Exacting. Some say ruthless. At home, I'm a single dad trying to keep his 14-year-old daughter a kid for as long as possible. If my daughter does what I say, somewhere there's a snowball surviving in hell. And nothing I say is ever right.

Meeting Beth Harrison in the first-class cabin of my flight from Chicago to London throws me for a loop, and everything I know about myself and women goes out the window. I'm usually good at reading people, situations, the markets. I know instantly if I can trust someone or if they're lying. But Beth is so contradictory and confounding, I don't know which way is up.

5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ for Louise Bay’s successful love sexy story! And 5 stars for Sebastian (I just can’t help falling in love with all his characters!) and Andi (as sweet as always!).
This is my fourth Louise’s book and it is now a favorite along with The Empire State Series.
Loved the story, the timing, the characters, couldn’t stop smiling and I even laughed out load a few times while listening...
Just as I read on someone’s review.. if you like sex, romance and cake, this is a must haha.. yumminess!
Can’t wait for the next one... trying to follow Bay’s order.
Thank you for the sweet romance! ❤️

My name is Mackenzie Locke, and I'm a loveaholic. I haven't got a handle on men. Not even a little bit. So I staged an intervention and booked me and my two best friends into Love Rehab, complete with a love shaman, horse therapy and a bunch of stones that promise to change my life. I'm not leaving until I'm cured. Lesson one: the first night of your stay, don't have a one-night stand with the hottest guy you've ever seen in your life. Fail.

I wish I could say something nicer about this book! I honestly was expecting something better based upon the other 2 Louise Bay’s incredible romantic passionate books I’ve couldn’t put down! (Empire State series & Hopeful).
The story was ok.. but I really wanted it to be done already so I could start one of her next books, one that would truly had me hooked!
Andi’s voice was sweet and she did an amazing job as usual.. I was reading negative reviews about Jeremy and I was thinking it couldn’t be so bad, when in fact, I believe it was one of the important causes that led me to want to finish the book faster. I feel as though he tries way too much.. putting to much weight on words.. can’t explain it! I’m off to read Indigo nights now!
