  • Eleven Scandals to Start to Win a Duke's Heart

Bold, impulsive, and a magnet for trouble, Juliana Fiori is no simpering English miss. She refuses to play by society's rules: She speaks her mind, cares nothing for the approval of the ton, and can throw a punch with remarkable accuracy. Her scandalous nature makes her a favorite subject of London's most practiced gossips...and precisely the kind of woman the duke of Leighton wants far far away from him.

Another entertaining read by Sarah MacLean. Simon is the least likable of men, but you cannot help but celebrate as Julie delivers her lessons on what it means to live. I plan on checking out the other books from this author.

Leaving Hannah was the biggest mistake of Marco's life - something he has deeply regretted for years. So when fate reunites them, he refuses to let her go without a fight. Determined to make her his, Marco pursues Hannah, reminding her of all the reasons they're meant to be together. But just when Marco thinks they're committed to a future together, Hannah makes a discovery that unearths the secret pain she's been hiding from him - a secret that could tear them apart before they have a real chance to start over again.

Am I glad I downloaded Fall from India Place? YES! Samantha Young always delivers, but this book was a little disappointing. I am not sure if it is because so much was foreshadowed in prior books in this series or if it is the amount of time spent catching readers up on main characters from prior books - but in the end it just was lacking for original story line.

The daughter of a titled wastrel, Lady Isabel Townsend has too many secrets and too little money. Though she is used to taking care of herself quite handily, her father's recent passing has left Isabel at sea and in need of outside help to protect her young brother's birthright. The sinfully handsome, eminently eligible Lord Nicholas could be the very salvation she seeks. But the lady must be wary and not do anything reckless and foolish…like falling madly, passionately in love.

I was introduced to Kristen Ashley through Motorcycle Man and then the Rock Chick series. I know she is going to provide me with a fun escape when I start one of her books on audio. :) The Gamble blew away my expectations. I loved the story and character development and supporting characters. Nina may be my favorite heroine of all romance novels!

Kristen Ashley offers a great escape with the audio version of Sweet Dreams. Emma Taylor did a great job narrating as always. Sweet Dreams stars a heroine you cannot help but to love and a great bad ass hot man! This was an enjoyable LONG listen, maybe a little to long. The character development was thorough but seemed to drag between the attack of Sonny and the attack of the heroine.

Credit worthy - YES!

This story is about a young women finishing up college and finding herself by falling into a dream romance during a girls weekend in Vegas. The book was fun, interesting and SEXY! I enjoyed the story line and character development of two young souls learning about themselves and each other during a steamy romance with lots of HOT SEX!.

Other reviewers have remarked on the narrator. My initial thought was to agree with some of the critics, but by the time the couples meet in Vegas - I cannot think of any voice I would rather hear! She does a great job for both the female and male voices and accents and I truly believe the narration is what kicked this book to a solid 5 stars for me. French never sounded that sinful and delectable in my head before! Stick with it. Once the male characters are introduced you will understand why she is the PERFECT voice for this audio book.

Credit Worthy - YES! Purchase Worthy - Do not hesitate! This is a great read to escape into. Enjoy!

Sadie Hutchins loves her job at the Kentucky Tourism Commission. Not only could her co-workers double as the cast of Parks and Recreation, but she loves finding the unusual sites, hidden gems, and just-plain-odd tourist attractions of her home state. She’s a shoo-in for the director’s job when her boss retires at the end of the year…until hotshot Josh Vaughn shows up to challenge her for the position. Josh is all sophisticated polish while Sadie’s country comfort, and the two have very different ideas of what makes a good campaign.

Fatal Affair is truly an enjoyable light read. Marie Force does a wonderful job with the character development. I love Sam, Nick and Freddie! The story line is truly fictional with Nick and Sam having an inappropriate relationship for a witness/investigator, not to mention the willingness of fellow officers to overlook the ethical issues or this relationship. But the storyline is one you want to believe is plausible - the characters are just so compelling. Well deserved 5 stars.
