I read pages of reviews and no one warned me of the foul language. I read the words "heart warming" and "wholesome", but nothing about profanity and bad language. I didn't wait to find out if if the morals were x-rated too.

Paige Spears was on her way to a job interview when she first met Diane Hunt. The two of them made friendly conversation while waiting for their breakfast, and Diane ended up asking Paige to come work for her for the summer. Paige was reluctant about beginning her corporate career anyway, so she jumped at Diane's offer. As luck would have it, her first assignment was to spend a week in Myrtle Beach with Diane and her family.

Dowdy art exhibit coordinator Ava Young is happy with her man suits and sensible clogs. She likes the way they clip-clop on the museum's tile floor. But they don't win her any lovelorn looks from her office crush. In fact the handsome new guy calls her "sir" when they first meet. Oh well. She's always known the only way a guy would take a second look at her was if she was the only person in the room. And on fire.

I appreciated the fact that the story was clean, but the characters were so shallow with no depth at all. I also had a hard time imagining that the story was real. I was painfully aware the whole time that the characters were made up.

Love this author! I know I will get an "edge of my seat" story without having to worry about bad language or sordid scenes. The narrator did an outstanding job. It is hard for male narrators to do a good job with female voices, but this one did a great job!

They call her "the husband maker" and sadly, it fits. Every guy she's dated since high school has gone on to marry the next girl they date. Not two or three girls down the road. The very next one. Is she doing something wrong or is she just cursed? When Kyle Aldsworth enters the picture and sweeps her off her feet, Charlotte begins to hope that maybe she's not destined to be single forever.

Definitely for the younger crowd, but enjoyed a clean listen and a good performance. I do wish the author would have made the main female character have some redeeming qualities. It's like she worked so hard to make her so inept at almost everything that it was hard to be rooting for her.

Loved the story. Great suspense yet clean with no graphic sex. Would definitely buy another of this author's books. However, the narrator spoke in a choppy staccato style and sounded very much like a robot with monotone intonation pretty much throughout the book. Would definitely not want to listen to this narrator again.

Captain Blackheart leads a simple life of roving the seas, wenching and treasure-hunting. He steers clear of romantic entanglements that could tie him to land. He shouldn't have any trouble keeping his hands off the gently-bred lady he's commissioned to abduct - except his cargo turns out to be feisty and passionate! She'd be a prize worth treasuring, if having her aboard didn't jeopardize everything.

I am always looking for clean books and clean authors. I am so disappointed that not one reviewer warned me that a couple of hours into the book we would be suddenly be into porne. I immediately turned off the book and will definitely add this author to my do not ever purchase any of her books again list. I am disappointed that absolutely no one warned me that this was coming. So I will take the time to warn others that prefer clean books to stay away from this author.
