He soon becomes terrorized in a dream so intensely real his mind cannot seem to let go of it and is plagued by disturbing images of infatuation from another time and place. Afraid he is spiraling into madness, Ambrosia seeks out the help of those around him.

I received this ARC via audiobook boom. The narrator was great. The story was twisted around several points. I am not sure if I followed most of it but I did listen to the story and feel that it could have been done differently but it was not just in my scope of a good story. But this could rise to the level of a good story. Again I love the narrator.

As the daughter of a duke, Lady Annalise Palmer should be living a charmed life. But appearances can be deceiving - her father's ensured that her entire life has been filled with heartache and hardship. Happiness is an elusive emotion, and love is nonexistent. She has no reason to believe she’ll find either. Ryan Simms, the marquess of Cinderbury, has been alone nearly his whole life. After his father died, he was abandoned by his grandfather and left in the care of his wicked stepmother. From a young age, he learned not to trust a lady and never to fall in love, especially.

I got this ARC via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. I loved this story. I thought it was going to be like some of the other newer regency romances but it was not. It was a good story and well written. I loved the grandmother. It began as a reverse Cinderella but moved on to another twist of a different fairy tale then ended on such a good note.

I am not sure if I really understood this story. The narrator changed voices for the characters several times. I got this ARC via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. When it started the interactions between the characters was a little off by the end of the story I thought I understood what was going on. The young people were there to end the war, yet they were only able to do something if they could remove the curses. But removing the curses will not allow them to end the war.

I got this ARC via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. The best thing about the story for me was the narrator. I disliked the hero from the second chapter because of how he treated his grandparents. As the story progressed he became less reprehensible. Overall it ended well although it took several unexpected twists which help to make it a nice story.

I got this ARC via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. The narration left a lot to be desired. Lots of repeated phrases or corrections without taking out the misread phrase. The story was a little too trite at times. Although I did love the part about getting the wedding done before the bride could get a transplant or die. My sis is waiting on a kidney and has been on dialysis for 7 years. Good to highlight the medical conditions of people who are awaiting transplants. Perhaps that will spur others to become donors.

I got this ARC via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. I really liked this story. I liked how the women joined forces to help create an environment that was conducive to living a good life. There were distractors who tried to get in their way but they were determined. The final scenes were well written and although did not end on a cliffhanger they led to the next story. The narrator was great.

Brandy Jo Danner made up her mind in the third grade that someday, she was going to marry Dane Bronson. "Determined" doesn't begin to describe Brandy Jo.... "Sassy" would be more accurate. Dane has wanted to ask Brandy Jo out for the past 14 years, but his shyness has kept him at bay. It appears two people could not be more different. When Dane finally works up the courage to ask her out, his rival, Hank Halverson, gives Dane a run for his money.

I got this ARC via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. This was a long and twisted story that told the life of a woman, her daughter, and their path to the end of life for the mother and a HEA for the daughter. The ending was the best part. The story showed how even though people were willing to take your money, they still could despise you. It painted a picture of our American society that is so close to the truth it is hard to recognize this as fiction. The narration added to the story. the various voices were distinguishable.

I got this ARC via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. She is not all bad and not all good. Each decision she makes has her dual heritage to be considered. She is tasked with making these decisions sometimes during a lot of stress and she has to make them quickly. This is sometimes how our lives are governed and we have to decide what is the best course of action. Narration added to the story and moved it along.
