Where does SEAL's Promise rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

SEAL's Promise has to be my fravourite audiobook so far. I knew I'd enjoy the story but the addition of the wonderful narration just blew me away, I loved it.

What did you like best about this story?

This is a very emotional story and I was brought to tears many times. But they were not all sad tears, plenty were tears of joy. And I liked how T.J. wasn't afraid to show his emotions to his girl.

Have you listened to any of J.D. Hart’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is the first book that I've listened too that has been narrated by J.D. Hart. His performance though was wonderful, he definitely has a great talent for telling a story and I would purchase more of his work.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

A bad boy SEAL finds something he never thought he could have, love and family,

Gwyneth Carswell, an English lady banished by her father to the harsh Scottish Highlands, wants nothing more than to take her young son away from the violence of two fighting clans - her own distant kin, the MacIrwins, and their enemies, the MacGraths. She risks everything to rescue the fierce MacGrath warrior from the battlefield where he's left for dead by her clan. She only knows she is inexplicably drawn to him and he wants peace as she does. When her clan learns of her betrayal, they seek vengeance. Dare she trust the enemy more than her own family? Laird Alasdair MacGrath is driven to end two-hundred years of feuding with the MacIrwins. But by taking in and protecting Lady Gwyneth and her son, he provokes more attacks from his mortal enemy. As the danger and conflict surrounding them escalate, Alasdair and Gwyneth discover an explosive passion neither of them expected. With the arrival of a powerful man from her past, a horrible decision confronts her - give up her son or the man she loves.

What did you love best about My Fierce Highlander?

I love highlander romance and the miss, matched, couple in the story has to be one of my favourite story tines and that he was a broken-hearted widow.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked to see how their relationship developed, they both were torn in different ways, so it was interesting.

What about Andrew Bryan’s performance did you like?

I always like Andrew Bryan's performances, he is able to separate characters with his voice, create suspense, and add humour. He also has a soft Scotish brogue which is very important.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Who was your favorite character and why?

I think Blake was favourite character. He was more brash and loud, more of a bad boy type.

What does Jason P. Hilton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Jason has a very soothing voice and is able to draw the listener into the story. I like how he is able to change his voice for different characters, but not ridiculously so, just to the right level.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The most moving moment had be when Parker is told that his grandmother had passed away, that was very sad. And then also when Blake informed him that he wasn't alone, he had Blake, that was a great ending.

Would you listen to My Wild Highlander again? Why?

Yes I would listen to My Wild Highlander again. The overal performance was very well done, and the story is very entertaining.

What was one of the most memorable moments of My Wild Highlander?

The most memorable for me had to be when Lachlan had to go to the Dr. to check his health but was caught outside by his two friends and had to explain why he was seeing him. That was a classic.

I haven't listen' to any of Andrew Bryan's performances before, but I certainly will remember his name and I hope to hear him again, he was really good.

The story made me laugh and smile, the hero was such a rogue and the heroine just didn't stand a chance.

With a dirty mind and a mouth to match, Clay Nichols is everything Julia never knew she wanted and exactly what she cannot have. He walked into her life one night and unlocked pleasure in her that she never knew was possible. Possessing her body, captivating her every thought. Which makes him way too dangerous for Julia to risk her heart, given that she has a price tag on her head.

This has to on of the best audiobooks I've heard up to now. The narration of the book was very well done and kept my interest right through to the end.
