Cassie, the youngest of six daughters in the Wilton family, is bold, bright, and ready to enter society. There's only one problem: her older sister, Lenora, whose extreme shyness prevents her from attending many social events. Lenora is now entering her third season, and since their father has decreed that only one Wilton girl can be out at a time, Cassie has no choice except to wait her turn.

I've listened to many many audio romances, but don't think I've had one that touched me as much as this one. Many of the circumstances were sad, so sad I found tears running down my face as I was listening. Then found myself smiling and joyful as Cassie found forgiveness and love through obedience and humbleness. I didn't always feel Cassie's parents (especially her mother) was as supportive as they could have been, but I guess in the time period and the fact she was a Vicar's daughter, she was expected to act above reproach. I loved the fact that Evan was a man of integrity, even when it obviously meant there would be negative repercussions for Cassie and himself in the end. I also loved all the references to God's word. I love this was a "clean" romance. The story was so much deeper and solid and the narration was perfect. I highly recommend this book. I will listen to it again and I've already purchased the next book and can't wait to find out what happens to Lenora!

In Minatsol, being a dweller means that you are literally no better than dirt. In fact, dirt might actually be more useful than Willa. Her life will be one of servitude to the sols, the magic-blessed beings who could one day be chosen to become gods. At least her outer village is far removed from the cities of the sols, and she won't ever be forced to present herself to them... Until one small mistake changes everything, and Willa is awarded a position to serve at Blesswood, the top sol academy in the world - a position that she definitely did not earn.

I usually don't write reviews but this book had me hooked from the very beginning. I couldn't stop listening and I found myself laughing one minute and almost crying the next. Always sitting on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen next. Can't wait until the next book comes out.

Sophronia continues her second year at finishing school in style - with a steel-bladed fan secreted in the folds of her ball gown, of course. Such a fashionable choice of weapon comes in handy when Sophronia, her best friend Dimity, sweet sootie Soap, and the charming Lord Felix Mersey stowaway on a train to return their classmate Sidheag to her werewolf pack in Scotland. No one suspected what - or who - they would find aboard that suspiciously empty train.

Every now and then I love to read something short and sweet. This good hit the mark. It was a bit whimsical, magical but had a touch of romance for the length of book it was. I enjoyed following how the couple actually fell in love by following their hearts. Which is what we all do in real life, right? Yes I recommend this book. Made me smile when I was finished with it!

I really like this series. I read the first book and really got into the story, but was skeptical on whether or not the second book would be as captivating. It was! Great mix of romance, action and mystery! I'm looking forward to the third book because I just don't want to stop reading! Buying the third book now!
Then I'll give my final review of this series!

With his dying breath, he tells her he is a Green Rider, one of the magical messengers of the King. Before he dies, he makes Karigan swear to deliver the message he’s carrying, and gives her his green coat, with the symbolic brooch of his office.

I loved listening to this book. I was caught up in the story right away and could feel the horror and fear the character in the story felt by the way the narrator read and related the events of the story. I got everything I expected from reading a "Ghost Story." I would recommend this book to anyone who appreciates a good ghost story.

Seven years ago Kaylin fled the crime-riddled streets of Nightshade, knowing that something was after her. Children were being murdered— and all had the same odd markings that mysteriously appeared on her own skin….Since then, she's learned to read, she's learned to fight and she's become one of the vaunted Hawks who patrol and police the City of Elantra. Alongside the winged Aerians and the immortal Barrani, she's made a place for herself, far from the mean streets of her birth.
