He's a duke. He's a mathematical genius. He can't talk and he's locked in a lunatic asylum. Only a modest Quaker girl can reach him, but when she helps him to escape, she's swept into his glittering aristocratic world, her life torn apart by his desperate attempt to save himself.

And it wasn't even the end.!!! I just can't express how good this book is with this narrator. I read it a few years ago and yes, it is one of the best love stories period!! But Nicolas Boulton became Christian Chevoux. This is a "can't miss" audio book.

I didn't like Ivy in the last book and never warmed up to her in this one. Same with Lorenzo.

Ivy was "traded" to the Weston pack for a favor. You just know there is a story there. This book tells that story. I listened to this book for news of the rest of the pack which I love. But main characters I could have skipped. Dannika Dark is good. Also I was intrigued with the trip to Cognito. The city setting for her Crossbread series. I will listen to next book. Hopefully, it won't feature arrogant, narcissistic, manwhore or wimpy personality-less, people pleaser.

I've made a living playing by the rules only when the clock is ticking, the ball has been snapped, and I'm cleat-deep in AstroTurf. But I screwed up last year. I went too far with the girls and the partying and the benders. As a result, the team owner sentenced me to live in some gated, Floridian retirement village until I can "calm down". If I lay low and repair my reputation, I won't get cut. It's that simple. For the first time in my life, I was living by someone else's rules, and then she showed up for the summer.

Awww com'on authors. Do you have such a dim view of women? I am so tired of women in romance novels who are such pushovers... Geee OK he screwed you... oh and by the way you screwed him after knowing that he had more a$$ than a saddle... and then tells you to hide, you over hear him telling someone he's alone while you are HIDING... and the next time you see him YOU DON'T EVEN MENTION THAT!!! No matter what he does - when you are alone - - your panties fall off?????? I am really tired of reading these kind of things. to the point that I am really considering canceling my romance subscription.... I guess I will have to be more selective... Well Delilah, being the conservative person she is goes next door and asks the Player (literally & figuratively) to keep the noise of his party down and sees that its basically a orgy. I disliked the hero. He is super arrogant. Yeah Yeah everyone wants to "sleep" with him.... The narrators were great. Really talented. Nothing surprising here arrogant man-whore baller meets his (door-mat, push-over. passive) match... He falls in love because she is sooooo different than the previous (triple digit amount) women he has slept with... rrrigggtt....

No connections. Play it safe. These were the rules Ivey lived her life by. Until she hit Mustang, Colorado, a perfectly imperfect town where the citizens were welcoming, and one of them included the tall, beautiful, macho-man rancher cowboy Grayson Cody. On the run for a decade, Ivey knew she was supposed to play it safe. But she was tired of being on the run. She wanted normal. She wanted real. She wanted a home. And she wanted Grayson Cody. And Grayson Cody wanted Ivey.

This is the second book by Kristen Ashley that I have wanted to end. I just discovered her because of my subscription to audible romance . But the two books I listen to have been awesome .

Ivy is the pool hustler. She's never been beat . She and her brother travel from town to town just ahead of the angry "hustled". She's now in the town in Colorado called Mustang. Your brother is scaring the bars looking for a mark. She goes into one of the two bars in town just to play a game of pool for fun. That's where she meets Grason Cody. He sees her for what she is but is still such a good guy that he comes to rescue later. That's the beginning of the end of the relationship between her and her brother Casey. The beginning of a lasting love the story of which really made me want this book not to end.

Ellie Brown thought she'd finally escaped her stifling hometown of Broadlands, Illinois; med school was supposed to be her ticket out. But when her father has a stroke, she must return home to share his care with her older sister, Amelia, who's busy with her own family. Working as a paramedic, Ellie's days are monotonous, driving an ambulance through streets she'd hoped never to see again.

I could not like either of the main people in this story. I appreciated the time given to other Virgin River inhabitants but I guess if I was "madly" in love with someone I would not have left skid marks on the way to marrying again... but that's just me... Also PO'd about what happened to Mel. This book almost makes me want to stop the series....

Great writer. Superb narration. I really can't say enough about the narration. Bronson Pinchot is a actor of course - being Native I have NEVER heard any one copy the distinct pattern of speech of native men like this guy. He sounds like a family member. He is by far the best narrator I have ever listened to... His voice really lends itself to this kind of story. BUT I so enamored that he could read me the phone book and I would be engrossed - just waiting for the next name. Having said that, no matter how good the narration - the book has to be good also. The story is excellent.

Every morning, A wakes in a different person’s body, a different person’s life. There’s never any warning about where it will be or who it will be. A has made peace with that, even established guidelines by which to live: Never get too attached. Avoid being noticed. Do not interfere. It’s all fine until the morning that A wakes up in the body of Justin and meets Justin’s girlfriend, Rhiannon. From that moment, the rules by which A has been living no longer apply....

A is a soul without a body. He can only borrow a body for 24 hours from midnight to midnight. He can't remember his life being any different. He is now a teenager borrowing teenaged bodies. he is in love and wants desperately to have a relationship with Rhiannon. I I say HE because of the tone of the book. I think A is a he even though he also seems non-gender-specific. The gender of each "next" body is random. The book touches on a lot of issues - gender, love, relationships, morality, perception, ethics, outward appearance versus inward appearance, limitations, and others. The book ends on a cliffhanger. Usually I'm not into being manipulated and at this point I would be --- well --- not doing a review for sure. As ambivalent as I am about this book. I feel it's worth reading. I have to also say I probably won't be buying the next book.

Sarah Conway, on the other hand, was an Eastern lady who belonged anywhere else but on the rugged land Jake loved. But beneath Sarah's ladylike demeanor beat the heart of a true pioneer, a woman he yearned to make his own.

Really enjoyed this book. filled a reeaaalllee boring night at work. Thank you, Nora Roberts. And I have to say - this is a little off the point and doesn't really apply to Westerns because they like Regency Romance novels don't become dated but I like Nora Roberts older books I guess I'm of a certain age where I don't mind if they talk about phone booths and VHS tapes I remember them. OK back at the ranch this was a good story I recommend it highly I don't think you can go wrong with Nora Roberts Sandra Brown Linda Howard Karen Robards they're certainly my go to girls
