3 books for 1 price - This is a great deal considering that these are great stories. I enjoyed listening to each one. Each one is interesting and full of intrigue, good heroes, strong women, evil villains, and some very exciting love scenes. The stories are well written. I am going to see about getting more of Ms. Brashear's stories.

Another wonderful story from Ms. Stoker. Our leading lady is blind. The clinic where she works is hit by a gunman killing everyone he sees. Corrie hides and becomes the witness. Ms. Stoker researched blindness and did a great job of showing us the limitations of being blind then showing us how she was able to overcomes her limitations. We have our alpha male policeman who becomes her boyfriend. He is so perfect for Corrie. I just love the story and recommend this one for your listening or reading pleasure.

I was immediately drawn into the story. It is full of action from the beginning to the end. And a great love story added. The author describes in detail painting the image in your mind while you are listening or reading. The story includes the hardships, the heartbreak, the anguish, and anger of both sides of the Civil War bringing it to personal level of the characters. All of this deepens the emotions of our couple and for me. Even though there is a happy ending, I found myself crying when the story was complete. I was so involved in the story, I just didn't want it to end. This book is great.

Arden O'Hara is desperate to go home. Her fiancé was supposed to ride to her rescue, proving it's her - and not her father's money - he loves. Instead, an arrogant stranger with weapons strapped gunfighter low and a decided lack of sympathy for her situation shows up spouting a ridiculous tale about someone trying to kill her. It's infuriating when Raz Colt's claims prove true after not one but several attempts are made on her life.

This is a great story that is well written and narrated by the talented Dawson McBride. It is the story of two people that are not made for each other. Arden is a spoiled, rich young lady who while growing up didn't receive proper discipline. Raz is a gun-fighter/bounty hunter who was raised in a bordello. Yes, opposites attracts. The story had me laughing as these two try to get the upper hand. There was also some surprising twists and turns as well. And it does have a happy ending. I highly recommend this book knowing whoever reads or listens to it will be happy that they did.

This is a great story of a young lady who returned after being captured by the Sioux. Of course, she was not welcome by the people except for family members. The story is filled with actions and surprises. Definitely, a book/audible to get.

I do love happy endings. Summer and Mozart has a happy ending. But to have that happy ending, both Mozart and Summer have a lot to overcome. Summer is living in a storage room while working at a motel. No money, no car, and this job of cleaning motel rooms, she accepts having a hard life. She is hungry and cold. And lonely. Mozart has been chasing the man who killed his little sister and travels to the area where Summer is working. And they meet.When the killer sees the two of them together, things do get worse. Scary worse. But remember, we have an happy ending. The book is very well written, filled with action, and don't forget the moments of love. Wow! Great story, Ms. Stoker.

This book fills in what had happened to Chase when he left Sarah to find himself. His quest revealed his need to find his place in Sarah's world and while doing so, Chase becomes a man. Nick Sarando narrated the story and it felt like I was sitting and listening to Chase himself. There is one part I thought was funny especially the way the story was told. It was when Daniel found out Chase had slept with Sarah before they were married. Oh boy. I wouldn't have wanted to be Chase. This is a great story to add to the collection of the Yellowstone Series. I really loved the story.
