Jo Wilder had the heart of a lion and the temper of a wildcat. And when Keane Prescott crossed her path, she bared her claws. Jo was certain her charming new boss imperiled everything she cared for, but she couldn't deny the attraction between them. Though Keane's kisses left her breathless, it was his tenderness that threatened to tame her heart.

Love Nora Roberts and J. D. Robb. Usually the narrators are wonderful. However, Ms. Davis’s voice is better suited to children’s books. It really detracted from the story.

Will make sure to not choose a book with her as narrator.

In 1984 a doomsday vault was constructed on a remote island in the Arctic Ocean. Its purpose was to preserve Earth's genetic history in the event of a global catastrophe. Now, decades later, a second vault has been uncovered. This one resting where no one ever expected. And the problem is, it's not ours. Yet even more curious than the vault itself is what lies inside. Seeds. Millions of seeds. Each with a genetic embryo untouched and perfectly preserved. Waiting. No one knows who built it. Or when.

It was just one year ago that she and her team of marine biologists had stunned the world with their incredible breakthrough. And now, they were about to do it again. But an ocean away, something strange was unfolding. Along a lonely coast in South America, an experimental Russian submarine, long thought to have been dismantled, has suddenly resurfaced. And the US Navy had taken notice, sending officers John Clay and Steve Caesare to investigate.

The story is engaging and the “off world “ aspect doesn’t stop the possible reality of commutation with other mammals and primates. So glad Scott Brick is the narrator. Love his voice and inflections

Love Scott Brick as a narrator. He takes a very good story and makes it real.

Want the storyline to go on and on. After reading/listening to a LOT of books it is wonderful to have a different plot and two of the hero’s who live in the water.

Looking forward to the next installment

What would have made On the Hunt better?

narrator so bad. Made listening difficult. Dont mind Brooklyn accent but ruined the story

Would you be willing to try another one of Arika Rapson’s performances?

never

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Duvalle story ok but others did not cut it
