It was just a typical Monday. Until the big boss asked me to make the pitch for a prospective new client. After two years on shaky ground at work because of my screw up, an opportunity to impress the senior partners was just what I needed. Or so I thought, until I walked into the conference room and collided with the man I was supposed to pitch to. My coffee spilled, my files tumbled to the ground, and I almost lost my balance. And that was the good part of my day. Because the gorgeous man who crouched down and looked at me like he wanted to eat me alive was none other than my ex.

As manager of one of the finest hotels in Arizona Territory, Portia Carmichael has respect and stability - qualities sorely missing from her harsh childhood. She refuses to jeopardize that by hitching herself to the wrong man. Suitors are plentiful, but none of them has ever looked quite as tempting as the family friend who just rode into town, and none has looked at her with such intensity and heat.

And now everyone at her work knows what a failure she is as a woman thanks to her ex-boyfriend and coworker at Sunset Travel, who has given Angie the nickname of Ice Princess, claiming no man will ever thaw her.

I plan to go back and finish in between my great books. This one just okay. It's not as laugh out funny as the summary makes one believe. I'll try to finish but later. Much later.

Despite their rowdy hookups, Harlow and Finn don’t even like each other.... which would explain why their marriage lasted only 12 hours. He needs to be in charge and takes whatever he wants. She lives by the Want-something-done? Do-it-yourself mantra. Maybe she’s too similar to the rugged fisherman - or just what he needs.

But after a crazy Vegas weekend celebrating her college graduation - and terrified of the future path she knows is a cop-out - Mia Holland makes the wildest decision of her life: follow Ansel Guillaume - her sweet, filthy fling - to France for the summer and just…play.

It's 1876 and Dr. Viveca Lancaster is frustrated by the limits placed upon female physicians of color. When she is offered the chance to set up a practice in the small all-black community of Grayson Grove, Michigan, she leaves her California home and heads east. The very determined Viveca knows all about fighting for her rights. But she may need more than determination to face down the distractingly handsome Nate Grayson, the Grove's bull-headed mayor.

I have read this book many times. Strong independent brilliant woman bound to follow her dream and practice medicine during this time. Loved the story, enjoyed watching Nate fall in love with Vivica. History love and action all bound together. Great listen. Keep adding Beverly Jenkins books to a Audible and I'll keep listening. :). Would love to hear Thomas Penny voice again. Robin Eller is okay but the male voices are so similar to the female voices I sometimes have to figure out who's talking. Narration could be better. Sorry. Absolutely love Beverly Jenkins historical romances. Own them all would love to be able to listen to them all as well.

One of my favorites by Ms. Jenkins. I've read Indigo several times and when I found it on Audible I had to get it right away. Felt the same after seeing Vivid another of my favorites. Story is exceptional and told with elegance and intrigue. Falling in love along with learning a bit of history makes this book a phenonimal good read. HOWEVER, I cringe at this narrators French accent for Galen. So disappointing! He speaks French but is not French so why oh why did she feel Galen needed to have a French accent???? It's HORRIBLE. I imagined his voice to be strong deep and controlled but what we got was a weak terrible sound squeaky voice with a terrible French like accent. I love the story and will finish the listen at the same time I'll imagine Galen's voice as it should be not what I'm hearing. Love Beverly Jenkins my ALLTIME favorite authors

Zoe is used to taking care of herself and has long ago accepted that if anything bad was going to happen, it was going to happen to her. So when she loses her job over something most bosses would probably be happy with and her life starts going down hill from there she doesn't expect it to get any better. She certainly didn't expect any help from the loud jerk next door, but then again she has nothing to lose so puts her trust in him and hopes for the best.

Started off slow and I wasn't sure I like the way the book was written as a narration BUT I kept listening and so glad I did. Ended up loving this funny kinda crude but oddly romantic book. Bad boy learns lesson & figures out what true love feels like. So glad I didn't turn it off. Very sexy too.

Don Tillman, professor of genetics, has never been on a second date. So when an acquaintance informs him that he would make a "wonderful" husband, his first reaction is shock. Yet he must concede to the statistical probability that there is someone for everyone, and Don sets out to find the perfect partner. She will be punctual and logical - most definitely not a barmaid, a smoker, a drinker, or a late-arriver. Yet Rosie Jarman is all these things. She is also beguiling, fiery, intelligent - and on a quest of her own....

Surprisingly Loved this book. Narrator perfect. Laugh out loud funny. I found myself grinning and completely engaged throughout the entire book. Greatness. Not your normal romantic comedy. Surely not my normal type of listen. But I really enjoyed the qwerky hero & strong independent heroin. Listen to it you'll love it a chance.
