The voice performer did and admiral job. The story is redundant but necessary to those new to the series. The story is one of betrayal, lies, conspiracy and murder. The story has unanticipated shocks, listeners will not be disappointed and enjoy this story.

I’ve seen many negative reviews regarding voices of the artists doing the voice overs, now I understand. This artist’s voice was so mundane. As if, he’s reading the story to himself and not to paying listeners.

The story is vile and sensitive of the most despicable acts inflicted on a child. Sometimes it’s incredibly difficult to listen too, but the story is so gripping, you can’t turn t off. Like looking at a car wreck on the of the road, Then suddenly theirs some crazy plotI straight of James Bond with a villain a weapon and world domination. With some gripping suspense during escape and the and final battle.

This installment is the first of The Sister of the Heart saga. It’s also gives a fascinating glimpse into the dynamics of the group. The story is talkie and has more character development than action it also has lots and lots of explanation.
The heroine of the story has a handicap, which is unusual but, but she is capable and intelligent, determine and confident.

This second new installment of Ms Feehan dangerous Biker series is intensely violent/emotional drama, also hard core sexy and a adult passion filled story.
I also gives you more insight into understanding the club dynamics. This gang has suffered unspeakable trauma and all of them are damaged.
The story is lengthy, talkie and the dialogue is sometimes redundant. I really wish there was more searching and planning the rescue and less sex. That would have added more suspense to the story. The end is incredibly violent but satisfying
BTW: The model on the jacket looks exactly like I think Steele would look.

The first couple of chapters of the story is unnecessary convoluted, but it makes up for it with a humorous inept hit man and a kindly kleptomaniac grandmother. It has an absolutely wonderfully satisfying ending. But, I don’t understand the title.
