A simple request for Siena Arnotto: deliver a gift to her grandfather's friend. One look at Elijah Lospostos, hard bodied and stripped to the waist, and Siena succumbs to a feline stirring she never felt before, and to Elijah's reckless and pleasurable demands. But when that pulse-throbbing moment ends in the murder of an unexpected intruder, Elijah accuses the shaken and confused Siena of setting him up.

Christine Feehan is the reason I got back into reading as an adult, and with not much free time, I’m thankful for audiobooks. But jeesh, this book seemed like 80% sex. Enough is enough. Get to the friggin story.

Myla Lewis has married Prince Lincoln, and now they’re expecting! But she has a serious problem. The day after their honeymoon ended, Myla’s real husband disappeared. The man who’s sharing her bed is an imposter. Myla tries explaining about “Evil Lincoln”, but no one will listen. The reason? People think that Myla’s supernatural pregnancy is making her cray cray. Mostly because that’s what Evil Lincoln is telling everyone, and that man’s a great liar. What a creep. There’s no way Myla will take this lying down, though. She’s going to rescue her man, and she has a pretty good idea where he’s being held.

I love this series... when I saw this audiobook I bought it immediately!! I still would have bought it even if I had read the reviews because I strongly believe in making my own judgment calls....but, they were right.
I made it through 2 1/2 hours w/ 7+ to go, but it's just too unbearable. These stories were just too short to really add anything to the storyline. Plus, unless you are a major fan & have read every single book in this series you simply won't get it.
And I have read & listened to every book, some of them numerous times and though I know the characters, this book doesn't go anywhere.
I love this author & the narrators, but you can easily skip this one.
On the other hand, this audiobook is very cheap, so it would be worth it.
Even though this particular audiobook is not my cup of tea, I don't regret getting it.
I just wish I knew that it was a compilation of lots & lots of short stories and these blurbs that are more like a stream of thoughts put onto paper.
Anyways, best for you to be the judge. 😉

Please, don't judge this series by this audiobook... I got hooked on this series (in paperback form) about a year ago and let me tell ya, this audiobook was like nails on a chalkboard for me. The narrator talks soooo sloooowwwwly that it actually caused me to speed it up to
1 1/2X...not that it made it much better.
I love this series... I own them all and have reread them all couple of times so I know it it not the author's fault~ I did notice that the rest of the series has a different narrator so maybe those are better.
Honestly, I finally just shut this audiobook off and chose another one to listen to. I'm sooo glad I got this on the Book 1 of a series sale and only paid $5 bucks or I would have been so bummed!!
I soooo encourage everyone to always listen to the sample before purchasing audiobooks... I didn't this time and soooo regret it!

Would you listen to Tom Clancy Presents: Act of Valor again? Why?

Wow~ I would have to say yes, but this is one very intense story...at least for me it was. Yes, I am a girl...yeah, girls are a little more emotional, but even manly men are allowed to get teary eyed over the conclusion of this one.

What did you like best about this story?

What can I say, it's an intriguing & compeling story. The writing & narraration is so well done that you feel like you are right there living it or that you are at least being told the story by someone who actually experienced a real situation. It doesn't really have that

Which character – as performed by Steven Weber – was your favorite?

The narration was so amazing, but I have to say... holy moly, there is one scene with the Dr. when she(he) says

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I had planned to, but I just couldn't do it....it was just too intense. I had to take 2 seperate breaks which is very unlike me to be honest. I usually like to just plow through from start to finish.... however, it is now 4:30 a.m. because once I got back into it I couldn't turn it off because it got so intense. Then, I had to write this review while it was still fresh in my thoughts....not that I will be forgetting this one any time soon.

Any additional comments?

This story is about the ugly up-close and personal side of terrorism. But it is truely about bravery, patriotism, honor, loyalty, and the ultimate sacrifice.
I highly recommend this audiobook~
Happy listening~
