I'm a lot of things - a screwup, a basket case, a flunky. But when I take a nanny job to be near my pregnant sister, I swear to myself I'll walk the straight and narrow, which means I cannot fall for my insanely hot boss. I don't want to be tempted by that rugged rancher. By his chiseled muscles or southern charm or the way he snuggles his kids at bedtime. Ethan Carter won't get the key to my heart, no matter how much I want him.

This was the most marvelous story! I couldn't stop listening. Finished in one sitting. It had everything, romance, laughter, interesting characters. I know I'll listen to this book again and again. The narration was excellent also.

Lacey Barton can't deny her crazy attraction to Alex Trevino, but that doesn't mean she has time for the gorgeous SWAT officer. She's hell-bent on discovering who's behind the brutal dogfights sending countless mauled animals to her veterinarian office. The trail leads Lacey to a ring of vicious drug dealers, and suddenly she's in way over her head - right smack in the middle of a SWAT stakeout. With Lacey in danger, Alex's wolf side is unleashed.

This author was new to me but I have found the stories of each book well written with very interesting characters. Never realized I would enjoy books about werewolves as much as I have but I'm downloading the next book.

For Emily Winston, leaving her old life as her aunt's ward to become a mail-order bride in Montana constitutes a much-needed fresh start. But among the baggage she's hauling on her way to meet her new husband is a dark secret. The aunt who raised Emily also ran a brothel, and the young woman's sexual knowledge and exploration at her own hands has left her something other than a typical virgin.

She's the air in my lungs. The color in my world. But I'm no prince with a castle. I'm the king of the most feared MC on the West Coast. The kingdom I inherit is everything she hates and everything she's running from. I'm the monster lurking in the shadows. Waiting, biding my time to make her mine. She can try to run, but I've already caught her. She just doesn't know it yet.

This was the first by this author for me. There won’t be anymore. Mostly it was the narration. Maybe I’d have a different opinion if I “read” it. The narrator was so bad, no attempt at a female voice, made it hard to keep up because I had to figure out which character was speaking. Also just “read” the book with no attempt to convey feelings at all. I’ll never get another book he narrates, don’t care who the author is. In short, this one will put you to sleep!

Cooper Nelson’s SEAL career was cut drastically short when an explosion left him almost completely deaf. With so much of his pride and self-worth tied to the profession he loved above all else, Coop struggles in his nearly silent new world, his future seemingly bleak…until Commander Hurt badgers him into volunteering at the Riverton School for the Deaf. There, he meets teacher Kiera Hamilton, who opens his eyes - and his heart - to a love more fulfilling than any job could be.

Jagger Caldwell is no one's hero. With a reputation for busting heads and breaking hearts on the underground MMA circuit, he lives for easy cash and easier women. But when he stumbles upon an all-too-familiar scene, painful memories awaken Jagger's sensitive side and compel him to act. As a kid, he stood by helplessly as his old man beat his mom. Now, Jagger won't let 17-year-old Tatiana Rand suffer the same fate. Nothing matters except saving her.

Dee has always been good at wearing masks. Not letting anyone see the real her. She's content being the happy-go-lucky best friend. The strong willed boss. The independent woman who doesn't need a man. She's terrified that all it will take is one person to make all her carefully constructed walls crumble into fine dust. The second Beck sees Dee, he knows that she will be his. He sees past the gorgeous smiles and heart-stopping laughter.

As usual when I try a new author I'm disappointed. The only good comment I can make is narration was good. Story was way too drawn out & I decided I didn't care how it ended so stopped. I will not be listening to anything else by this author. I find this with other romance pkg books I've tried.

For Allye, finding sanctuary in the arms - and bed - of Rogers is only temporary. People are disappearing off the streets of San Francisco, victims of the same underground trade that targeted her, and Allye could be the key to dismantling the entire operation.

Ever since I was a little girl, I've taken care of everyone around me, including my self-centered older sister, Anna. When her poor choices make us targets of the Devil's Rejects Motorcycle Club, I grab her, and we run like hell. A new city, a new job, a new life. It's almost perfect - and then I meet Ryker. He's gorgeous, rugged, and too cocky for his own damned good. But he's a biker - exactly the type of man I've been running from. I have no business getting involved with a man like him. Too bad I can't get him out of my head.
