Darcy Campbell was a laid-off Chicago music teacher who took a job playing at a piano bar out of desperation. A bad day turned disastrous when she was the only witness to a mass murder. She watched in horror as her boss, his son, and other employees were gunned down. The police promised to protect her identity if she testified against the monsters who had committed the massacre. But her name was discovered, and threats immediately fired in her direction. Detective Nick Baker promised to protect her, and when things got hot, he hid her away in his cabin in the backwoods of Wisconsin.

As this book starts Darcy is working at a piano bar, to make ends meet whilst looking for a more permanent position as a music teacher. Three very attractive guys come into the bar and one requests that she plays an Elvis song "Can't Help Falling In Love" as she plays it she becomes lost in the music so she closes her eyes but when she opened them the men had gone.

After she finishes work that night she is in the ladies room when she hears gunshots, she looks out in time to see every member of staff being shot dead by a cartel hit man. When she calls 911 to report it the police officer who turns up to investigate is Nick, the guy who earlier requested her to play the Elvis song. Darcy, she is able to recognize the killer from police 'mug shots' only to find out that this is not his first kill but that no witness has ever made it to court.

Although Darcy agrees to testify, a brave thing to do, she has no idea that the hitman will be able to find her and when an attempt is made on her life she and Nick go into hiding in a remote cabin in the woods. Whist at the cabin her feelings for Nick start to deepen but Darcy has always had a rule she will never date or marry a policeman. Why you ask - well when she was a teen her father, also a policeman, was killed in the line of duty and her mother went to pieces totally ruining the rest of her life and also Darcy's childhood.

Nick is a cop, as are his brothers and his sisters as well as his own father so as far as Darcy is concerned HE IS OFF LIMITS but their attraction grows! As the story developed I did feel that a woman strong enough to testify against a killer should be strong enough to love someone, even if he is a cop.

The story is told totally from Darcy's perspective, which I admit is not my favorite, I like to know how each person is feeling but that said I did enjoy listening to this one. Although I had previously bought and read the book, I did find listening to it to be a much nicer experience the narrator, Lissa Blackwell did a wonderful job with it. I'm not going to say more because of spoilers but I would like to listen to Nick's brothers' stories if they ever get to audio.

This may be the third book in a series but this author is new to me so it's the first book of her's I have come across. I found this book via an email from Audiobook Boom and I have to admit that although the storyline sounded good it was the fact that Meghan Kelly was the narrator which made up my mind to apply for a copy of this audiobook to review.

Avery Price and Dr. Jack Maddox are not a couple you would put together at first glance, she is a serious person who thinks mainly about her business, she owns a bridal shop, she's a wedding planner and also likes to take the photographs at the weddings too. She hardly ever dates but would one day love a big warm family just like the one she comes from.

Jack Maddox, on the other hand, is a player, he comes from a broken home and although he has a brother they have only just reconnected. Jack is the local veterinarian but he's also a self-made millionaire playboy who has just one rule, never to be serious with a woman and never to marry. During a speed dating event he and Avery connect, but on their follow up meeting Avery gets cold feet.

Avery needs to win a wedding contest the prize money of $50,000 would enable her to buy her bridal shop. Avery then goes to Jack and proposes a mutually beneficial arrangement, to be together intimately while faking a marriage so Avery can win the contest, but what follows is a moving yet hilariously complicated series of events which at times had me laughing out loud and at other times brought an ache to my throat and heart.

I would love to tell you more but that would involve "Spoilers" a thing I personally hate - so what I will say is this was a beautiful, surprising love story with characters I couldn't help but like and I would definitely recommend it to any fans of this genre.

As always Meghan Kelly did an absolutely wonderful job with the narration adding, for me at least, another level of enjoyment to this story.

The blurb for this book starts with: When Hattie Stout boards the train bound for the western frontier, she doesn't think things can get any worse. Her father lost his fortune and made her a pariah in New York society. Then, the man she was engaged to marry, backed out of the arrangement to marry his cousin. When her parents decide there is nothing left to do but send her west as a Mail Order Bride, she thinks she's hit rock bottom. She's wrong!

The story starts with the stage Hattie is traveling on being attacked by outlaws and she finds herself in an even worse situation when she arrives in the small mining town and finds that her groom is not there to meet her, she has no money because of the holdup and is left on the street. Fortunately for her the sheriff of the town, Ed Milton, takes pity on her, he feeds her and finds her somewhere to stay.

Ed is from the South and is a perfect gentleman, he is happy with where his life has taken him and the life he has made for himself but Hattie has dreams of going home but in order to do so she will have to earn her train fare and pay for her board and lodgings, no easy feat for a woman who has been pampered her entire life. Hattie, however, has an incredibly strong inner core and is determined to do this. There are a few things which could stop her from achieving this goal, the outlaws, the sheriff's deputy and the fact that she is falling in love with the sheriff.

This story did not lag at all it flowed beautifully and held my attention the whole way through - I loved the narration of this book it was so well done, each character was individually defined and there was never any confusion as to who was speaking - well done Meghan Kelly for the narration and Vivi Holt for the story.

The first book in this Pearls of Desire series introduced us to a group of shifter brothers, not all the same species, they had different mothers but the same father, and their friend Del. After leaving the military they find a new home working as security guards for the shifters living at the next door estate. This book, the fourth in the series is about Chase, he is the quiet brother, the shy but loyal brother who finds interactions with humans hard, he was actually born in the wild and lived as a wolf until his wolf mother died so that's understandable. He is a wolf shifter with a heart of gold. In the preceding books in this series, we have had glimpses of Chase trying to work up the nerve to ask Sophie out his brother all know she is the one for him but as I said he's so shy!

Sophie is attempting to hide away from her past in Maui and is thrilled to finally be going on a date with Chase, he has finally asked her out. Unfortunately, danger comes a knocking in the form of David, someone from her past she had hoped never to see again, and to make matters worse David has three shifters with him as backup, how will she escape him? But now she is not alone, she has Chase and his brothers as well as their mates to help her. But she also has an inner strength she didn't realize she had and she calls upon this to save herself and her mate! I so loved Darcy and her two companions too - who is Darcy you ask you will have to read or listen to this story for the answer to that one.

There are also further threats to the shifters we have now come to know and love, from the evil she-dragon, Maura, who has been a thorn in their sides from the very beginning - when will she get her comeuppance?

I loved the interactions between them I thought that Sophie was perfect for Chase and I loved Chase's wisecracks and the way his character was able to flourish in this story. Well done Anna Lowe you never disappoint!

I had read the eBook of this story prior to listening to this audio version but I have to tell you the narration by the incredibly talented Kelsey Osborne took this story to a whole new level.

I had not read or listened to anything by this author before but the idea of four brothers all being cursed by a witch and each one being forced to exist as an element, each brother believing that the other three died and they alone survived in their cursed state, appealed to me so I listened to this collection.

Her Firey Viking: in the first story we have Mikkel who is made immortal and has anger issues, the trouble is when his anger gets out of control he turns into a fireball! In this story, he finally finds a mate, Joanna, an engineer who also has anger issues, but she helps him overcome his curse and they both learn to control their anger and break his curse at the same time.

Her Steamy Viking: Bram’s story finds Bram existing as water, but when Audrey a tenacious witch exploring the grounds of her grandmother’s secret Scottish cabin puts a foot into his lake he finds she can feel him and after so long he wants more so he makes an incredible journey through the moisture in the land and her drain pipes into her bathtub where his curse is finally broken.

Her Winged Viking: Erik's curse is that he asked the witch for wings to enable him to become a Valkary but when he didn't keep his promise to the witch she broke his wings and he has had to live trying to hide his wings from society. In his story, he is hiding inside a cartoon characters costume at a theme park. When he meets his mate Siobhan who is an immortal leprechaun his condition changes but I'm not going to tell you how you will have to listen to the story.

Her Rock Hard Viking: Carr's curse is that he has been turned into an island - yes an island and when Becca comes to his island looking for a particular plant to save her nephew's life Carr does something totally selfless and therefore his curse is broken too.

Her Christmas Viking sees all four brothers reunited together with an unexpected twist which made a nice ending to the series. All four books are intended for a mature audience due to the steamy scenes involved in each of their stories.

The narration of this book by Audrey Lusk was very well done, adding greatly to my personal enjoyment of this collection. I was given this audio copy as a gift and my review is written entirely voluntarily.

Her only hope is a threatening alpha military hero. Are they soulmates? Can an Earth girl's destiny be intertwined with an alien?

Katie has resigned herself to being a mail-order bride with Terra Mates after her last relationship failed because she found her partner in bed with someone else. Whilst on her journey to meet her match the ship is boarded and she is kidnapped. Can her luck get any worse?

Troxio is a warrior who obeys orders but he is at a loss as to understand what his commander wants with a human, especially a female. Troxio is a confusing character, he is a total contradiction being both aloof and protective towards Katie so you just don't know what to expect from him.

This wasn't my favorite book of this series so far, because Katie and Troxio's relationship didn't actually gel until the end of the book, for the most part, the chemistry and connection Lisa Lace is so good at writing are missing. Troxio was harder to connect with than most of the other males in this series although I did warm to him slightly at the end.

The narration was very well done and did add to the story for me. I do own the ebook of this story but I read it some time ago so I came to the story fresh so to speak.

This is the second book in the Dark Regency series by Chasity Bowlin, I enjoyed the first book so much I could not wait to listen to this one. This book brings Lord Michael Sutherland, Viscount Ellersleigh, and Abigail Barrows together, we met Michael in the first book, he is the best friend of Rhys who held the starring role in The Haunting of A Duke.

As our story starts Michael has won a country estate in a game of cards, on arrival at Blagdon Hall, he finds it to be very rundown, with only two elderly servants a resident ghost and Abigail Barrows in residence. The estate passed to her cousin on the death of her parents and now that it belongs to Michael Abigale has to leave her home and go and stay with her step-sister and her husband at the neighboring estate. Michael feels bad about this as the reputations of her relatives are nefarious.

The following evening he accepts an invitation to dinner at the neighbouring Hall and finds that Abigale is being pursued by her brother in law, Michael wants to help her but just by being alone with her, even though they are only talking, her reputation would be ruined. The person Michael won Blagdon from is also a guest at the house and whilst Michael is alone with Abigale he is murdered, Michael becomes the prime suspect his only way to avoid the hangman's noose is for Abigale to be his alibi which would mean the ruination of her reputation.

So follows a hasty marriage, encounters with the Hall's resident ghost, several murdered/missing girls together with several attempts on Michael's life. All these things are linked to Abigale's family, antique artifacts, and human sacrifices. As this is the second book in the series, all of the main characters from the first are included, so we get to catch up with Rhys and Emmy, Emmy's sister Larissa and Spencer. Spencer's character played an important part and I look forward to listening to his story, hopefully next or soon.

The historical accuracy/descriptions are very good, the characters become more developed but the book did rely a lot on the sexual side of Michael's relationship with Abigale so bear this in mind when thinking about buying this book. That said the storyline, is exciting and dramatic, if somewhat dark, the sex scenes sizzle and the chemistry is hot.

I particularly enjoyed the narration by Lillian Yves, she did an incredible job of bringing every character to life, all the voices were different but recognizable and for me she made this particular book a joy to listen to.

This story is about a false engagement/marriage between Maggie and Gabe. Maggie has just finished her tour of duty in the military and returned home to help her parents run their small hotel. But whilst she's been away Gabe Carter, an ex-baseball player has purchased the property next door and turned it into The Elite, a really successful, high-end hotel. The result of this is that Maggie's parents are about to lose everything and Maggie blames the hotel next door.

On her first night home, she and her friend attended a party at The Elite, when she sees her cheating ex about to approach her Maggie grabs the tall sexy stranger standing next to her and kisses him. The chemistry between these two is immediate, hot and palpable. But when she finds out the stranger is Gabe Carter, she leaves him and the party.

Over the next few days, Gabe keeps trying to get close to Maggie but she is having none of it, but when a tropical storm causes further damage to her parents home and things are at their lowest Gabe suggests a mutually beneficial arrangement. His image needs improving, no more Mr. Bad Boy Baseball Player, he wants to build a spa and restaurant at his hotel but he can't get the backing, he needs to show investors that he has "settled down". She needs money to repair her parent's hotel - the answer - they get engaged then married. Gabe will pay for the repairs and a marriage will show investors that he is now a safe bet.

Can this plan work, can two people with such strong chemistry be in such close contact and not let feelings become involved? Will they fool everyone or will they only fool themselves?

I have to say the writing style was good, the chemistry was very well done as was the character building. These are new authors for me, I wanted to listen to this book because I like the narrator, Meghan Kelly and any book by her is usually right up my street. I loved the two main characters and really enjoyed going along on this journey with them. I admit I did fall a little in love with Gabe.

I purchased the ebook of this story back when it was first released and thoroughly enjoyed becoming immersed in the book and when I saw that an audio version had been made I was really excited to be able to listen to it. That may seem strange but when I listen to a book, especially one as refreshingly different as this one, I normally get more from it the second time around I pick up little things I missed whilst reading it.

The storyline for this book was very different with Kinley Chandler being the main character, yes a woman has the lead. Kinley was a soldier and whilst serving in Afganistan she become so badly injured that no matter what was done to try to save her she was going to die from her injuries. In an attempt to help her state of mind she is taken out of the hospital by a well-meaning therapist to a local beauty spot in an attempt to lift her spirits. But Kinley doesn't want to live, she is in constant pain and knows her end is near so she tries to end her pain by plunging herself over the cliff when the therapist goes back to their vehicle to get her phone.

So the real adventure starts Kinley is taken back in time some 900 years and finds herself in a grove where a battle is taking place between what appear to be Roman soldiers and Highlanders. She is no longer injured or in pain, she is whole again! There she meets Lachlan, well when I say meets what I should say is she saves his life but in so doing she is rendered unconscious.

Lachlan is the leader of ClanMcDonnel but he's also an immortal, he takes Kinley back to their stronghold and after a period of time wins her trust. But how will a strong woman, a trained soldier fare in the past? Will they think her mad if she tells them she is from the future? The answer is she fares very well and she and Lachlan and the Clan together with a band of Druids try to overcome the Roman Soldiers who are in fact "the undead". Kinley's knowledge of search and rescue are put to good use too in this exciting tale.

There was so much going on in this book, which evoked many emotions in me, there is betrayal, devotion, loss, and love combined with the hottest chemistry between Lachlan and Kinley. The book is complete and can be read or listened to as a stand-alone but the ending does open a door for further stories which I can't wait to read/listen to.

I would like to add just how much I enjoyed the narration of this book, William MacLeod did a wonderful job of bringing every single character to life, imbuing each and every one with an individuality all their own.

I would love to tell you more about the plot but that would involve spoilers, which I just won't do. What I will say is that the author has written a story with a wonderfully different take on time travel, vampires and the like one I'm sure you will enjoy too if you are a fan of this genre.
