Simone Carter has written some great stories and they are all in this bundle.
Lissa Blackwell does a great performance!

These books were good, but listening to them all at once, seem to be the same story.. The stories were good, it was just listening them to all at once, had a lot of sameness.

There were some pretty hot moments in the stories, which I enjoyed, and the men, who are definitely Alpha's, come around in the end.

Rebecca Davis promises to raise her dying sister's newborn son as her own. She also agrees to help a female slave reach freedom. It's the right thing to do, but can she trust her fellow conspirators without endangering her future or her son? Her handsome contact, Jared Hollingsworth, won't discuss their mission, but her attraction to him has Rebecca fearing she will endanger not only her freedom--but her heart. Jared Hollingsworth refuses to use slave labor. Despite this sentiment, he's been able to keep his plantation going, even while mourning the death of his wife and son. Now, thanks to his notorious cousin, Jared is in danger of losing Oak Hill. When he meets Rebecca Davis, he isn't ready to love again, but she may be just what he needs to save his home and his heart.

With her sisters dying wish, Moria asks Rebecca to take her new born son and raise as her own with one promise, never let the father meet him. Rebecca agrees.

Rebecca Davis becomes a mother to her sisters son, much to the chagrin of her Aunt Josephine, a very uptight religious person, who believes Moria got what she deserved for having a child out of wed lock.

Rebecca has another job as well, she help escaped slaves reach freedom. When Rebecca attends her best friends wedding, she believes she meets her rendezvous contact by the flower that he wears.. (she doesn't), but not all is lost, because she falls in love with him.

This was a good story, set in the the 1800's south. There is some romance, misunderstandings, intrigue and some other stuff too.

Karen Rose Richter's performance was very good and enjoyed listening to the story. It went by quite quickly for being 8 hours.

Katherine Goldman is a professional with world-class skills, but the expertise of the family firm doesn't lie within the scope of legitimate commerce. Goldman & Associates steals priceless treasures and delivers them to the highest bidder - and business is good. When Katherine lands in Scotland to boost some relics, nothing in the experience of this notorious thief prepared her for a collision with a dark, rakish man wearing plaid who happens to be trapped inside an ancient mirror.

I always like a good time travel story.

Simeon, a Laird in Scotland, has been trapped in a mirror by Isabel the witch, he's been there since the 1600's.
Kat of modern times thief is in Scotland (under the family business), to obtain some artifacts, of one which she stumbles upon is a mirror, with Simeon trapped in side.

Kat steals the mirror, knowing someone is inside, but not quite sure how they ended up there. Mystery and intrigue are afoot.

This is was good story with romance and intrigue.

I really enjoyed this book and looking forward to listening to the next one.

Zarah and her daughter move to Wisteria, a strange little town, and purchase a house (which has the ghost of the last person there).. On the upside, Zarah learns how to cook and host great parties.

Things are not as they seem.. and it's great finding things out along the way.
The story was funny and Tiffany's performance was great..

This was a quick short listen, but done in such a way that it grabs your from the beginning. The only issue really was that it was a female narrating a male part, however that said, Kate Marcin did not do a bad job. At first I was trying to figure out who was who.

A musician takes a job house sitting and gets quite a pay cheque for it. All is fine the first day, but then after that, things get strange.. I did enjoy the twists of this book, and some parts are disturbing, but over all, I like it.

Emily had a short relationship with Brett 4 years earlier, before he went off to basic training.. 4 years have past and Emily calls to meet up. Brett thinks it's to rekindle the explosive relationship, but it's basically to tell him that he has a son. Brett is leary and very distrustful because Emily had not made more of an attempt to reach him to let him know.
During this time, Emily takes her son on an already pre-arranged tour of an old jail (Colonial days).. But her 3 yr old son takes off on her, and ends up bringing home a friend from the jail.. One that only he can see and hear... Then things get interesting.

This was a really good ghost story and a love story.. Kristin James did a very good job in her narration.

This is a great time travel story (which I love) and it has a few twists and turns along the way which keeps in interested.
Sometimes the narration seemed like someone was just reading the book, but since I liked the story so much, I overlooked it.

Then Brian Gottschalk comes barreling into it with the force of an Atlantic storm. He works for a ghost-hunting TV show, and he's in Salem to find a story. He's witty, charming...and a total jerk. Selena has no problem with ghosts. She does, however, have a problem with big-city Brian. It will take all his charm, plus the silent advice of a caring ghost, to make Selena realize that maybe, being big-city isn't so bad after all.

Brian, a producer from a Ghost Hunting show, decides to do a Halloween Special in Salem.

Once arriving to meet a resident witch, which she turns up to be not at all what he was expecting.. (ex. long dark hair and a witches hat). Selena Goode, the resident witch, doesn't like Brian at first meeting, as he is a little full of himself and doesn't really believe in ghosts anyway. Selena rents Brian her childhood home and Brian gets to meets a couple of Salem ghosts.
This is a cute little story, with some gratuitous sex thrown in for good measure..
