After enduring years of her nobleman father's cruelty and abuse, Celestina Lunde is ready to take her own life rather than enter into an arranged marriage with an equally brutal man. But just when she is about to leap through the window of her tower bedroom, a brawny Highland warrior arrives at her home and changes everything.

I enjoy the story but i don’t enjoy the abuse heaped on women. I just can’t listen to the beatings. I won’t be downloading anymore Keira Montgomery. Like Anthony Ferguson’s voice. Low stars given for abuse.

In a strange world where Rose McGowan was continually on display, stardom soon became a personal nightmare of constant exposure and sexualization. Rose escaped into the world of her mind, something she had done as a child, and into high-profile relationships. Every detail of her personal life became public, and the realities of an inherently sexist industry emerged with every script, role, public appearance, and magazine cover. The Hollywood machine packaged her as a sexualized bombshell, hijacking her image and identity and marketing them.

Rose McGowan might be the bravest woman I've ever heard from. Wish I could call her friend. I have no idea how she came out of the life she has led with so much insight. She is a real freedom fighter. I stand beside her in spirit. She speaks for so many women. It is time women to be heard. I will NOT see movies that are produced by the men she names or any other man that takes on the Hollywood idea of women. She is a hero to me. I respect and love her and her work. Thank you, Rose, for writing this gut wrenching book so full of insight and knowledge. May you have the strength to carry on! You're a warrior. I want and am glad you are on my side. Much love.

Audie Award, Fantasy, 2016. As the smallest dragon in the Heartstriker clan, Julius survives by a simple code: keep quiet, don't cause trouble, and stay out of the way of bigger dragons. But this meek behavior doesn't fly in a family of ambitious magical predators, and his mother, Bethesda the Heartstriker, has finally reached the end of her patience.

I listen to most books with ear buds. The sound Mr. Gillies makes is piercing actually hurting my ears. I cannot listen to another minute. Story might be good but was so distracted by the pain I couldn't pay attention. I'm returning.

Scottish romance doesn't get much steamier - or more dangerous - than a spy hunting her quarry and losing her heart to him instead. To pay a seemingly impossible debt, Mariel Brandon has become a spy for Aaron, one of England's deadliest minds. Aaron's latest mission for the sharp-witted and daring Mariel is to find two people in a heavily fortified castle on the Isle of Skye, a castle headed by the clan MacDonald and the powerful Kieran.

Christopher Argent lives in the shadows as the empire's most elite assassin. Emotion is something he tossed away years ago, making him one of the most clear-eyed, coldhearted, wealthiest, and therefore untouchable men in London. But when his latest target turns out to be London's own darling, Millicent LeCour, Christopher's whole world is turned upside down. Overwhelmed by her stunning combination of seduction and innocence, Christopher cannot complete the mission.
