Nate Walker has never shied away from the hard road. Even when it meant leaving behind his family's wealth - and the fiancée who only wanted a rich man. Nothing was going to stop him from opening his own five-star restaurant.

And he was on his way, until his car broke down on a dark road in the Adirondacks, leading him right to White Caps Inn - and Frankie Moorehouse.

Don't expect anything about BDB here. This is just romance between two hard head personality. Lots of attractions with fights. Love doesn't come easy for them.

The narrated does a wonderful job with each character performances! She keeps the pace going without being flat.

I don't know why JR Ward used the title "The Rebel" it should be called "The Chef".

Being Principe of an ancient vampire dynasty comes with difficult choices. For Byron Debrek, that means putting the good of her clan and innocent mortals over her own desires. When she falls for the first woman to set her blood on fire in centuries, Byron must harden her heart and walk away. For Amelia Honey, a suit designer at a Savile Row tailor, the six months spent with her first love were the most wonderful time of her life. Byron made her feel like a princess and awakened her darkest sexual desires. But then she disappeared.

A nice different take on vampire tales. Yes, it a little bit slow in the begin of the book, but it makes up on the second half. Its a slow burn romance between rich dapper vampire and a young seamstress. Two different worlds come clashing together with blood. I have a feeling Frame will have a sequel. But there is no cliff hanger so it could be just this book.

Out of all the O'Brien books I've read, this is the most sexy erotic book she ever wrote! NOTE: I would say about a good half the book is well wet sex scenes!! (So, you are warned!) Or very happy!
The rest of the book has good story and characters that does help to flow along well. Except the bad ex-girlfriend was typical flat one-side bitch. Very emotional main characters from jealousy too with soft caring love that was brilliantly written.
I wish the ending plot didn't wrapped up too fast done.
Clarke performance is very convincing telling each characters in a different vocal personalty.

Do NOT listen to other reviewers who said this was "worst ever narration". But try a sample for yourself. I've listened to Katherine Keligren narration books before. I always found her voice and acting helps to improved that stories.
The story is very funny. Two hard working girlfriends need money. Lots of it! What else to do, they become snake-oil saleswomen! Their client was bored rich housewives. Of course, hi-jinks happens!

I've thought I would never, ever say this on Audible, get the eBook version!
Goodyear narration is the worst ever I heard on Audibles. She is very monochromatic voice - (pause) - monochromatic dry voice (long pause) - non feeling monochromatic Dry Boring without any dramatic life!

I've read and enjoyed O'Brien books! So sad this is a bad narration! I'm getting my credit back on this!

Some of these stories are continuation from the author's novel. Which didn’t bother me, if I didn’t read it before. Only want me to get that novel if I’ve like that short story. There was only a few stories were just okay for me.
Most of these are Christmas theme romantic stories. Best present is when a ring box comes out!
Zajko does bring out wonderful telling of each story.
Note: some stories does have hot steamy sex scene.

This book I love out of whole BDB series! John is mute, but that never stopped him. It only makes him stronger. Xhex is mixed breed warrior. She definitely Not a female in distress! Together they have to work through their feelings, while fighting each other and their enemies. Very hot erotic sex scenes!
