At the end of a long day battling street traffic, bike messenger Jace Damon has one last drop to make. But en route to delivering a package for one of L.A.'s sleaziest defense attorneys, he's nearly run down by a car, chased through back alleys, and shot at. Only the instincts acquired while growing up on the streets of L.A. allow him to escape with his life, and with the package someone wants badly enough to kill for.

From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. The Pentagon has officially confirmed more than 150 of Kyles kills (the previous American record was 109), but it has declined to verify the astonishing total number for this book. Iraqi insurgents feared Kyle so much they named him al-Shaitan ("the devil") and placed a bounty on his head.

Not my usual style of book. Loved the humor of Chris Kyle. He is sorely missed. He didn't pull any punches. The narrator brought it to life.

Money certainly changes Jenner Redwine's life when she wins a lottery jackpot. But it also costs her plenty: Her father rips her off and disappears, her fortune-hunting boyfriend soon becomes her ex, and friends-turned-freeloaders give her the cold shoulder when she stops paying for everything. Flush with new money, Jenner can't imagine ever finding a place in the world of the wealthy. Seven years later, though, she's rubbing elbows with the rich, despite the fact she still feels like a party crasher.

I don’t think Linda Howard could write a book I wouldn’t love, and I have many favorites. However, this one will wring your heart right out of you one moment, have you laughing the next and then have you fanning your face to cool down during the love scenes. A masterpiece of a story that I have read several times and listened to many more.

As a lovely heiress, Roderica Delamore should be a prize catch--except for her shameful secret. She has the ability to hear the thoughts of those around her. Even her family and close friends can't hide from her strange gift. Knowing that she can never marry, for no man could bear it, Roddy still longs hopelessly for a family of her own. Until she meets the man she's been waiting for--the Earl of Iveragh, a mysterious Irish aristocrat whose thoughts are entirely closed to her.

This was the first Laura Kinsale book I ever read. From the beginning I was hooked and became a forever fan. Listening to the story I have loved so well brought it to life for me. Beautiful and magical story. Phenomenal performance. Well worth it!

Did not like the ending at all. Very disappointed with how the author ended the story. It was not on the same par as the 1st two books.
