Nathan, a widower, is critically injured in a Civil War battle and lies on his death bed. His best friend, Ben, promises to care for his daughter, Belle. Ben’s sister, Allison, is doomed to become a spinster, so she jumps at the chance to become a widow rather than a spinster when Ben suggests she marry Nathan. She must do it quickly, because the doctor said he wouldn’t last out the week.

Having grown up with a port-wine birthmark on her face and neck, Quinn Dixon’s heard them all. Her own mother couldn’t bear to touch her, let alone strangers. Years of stares and insults from everyone from classmates to foster families have made her understandably reluctant to trust. So when John comes along, of course he couldn’t be interested in more than a brief affair. He’ll get sick of all the gawking and whispers soon enough and leave her…just like everyone else.

This is the story of Quinn Dixon. Born with a port wine stain birthmark on her cheek and neck, she lives with people always staring. She met John "Driftwood" Trettle at a party. John didn't notice her birthmark, he saw her.

It took months to get through to her, until he declared they were dating. Quinn found herself making friends with the other firefighters and their women at Station 7. John's best friend, Taco, finds a woman who just could not fit in with the women. Quinn finds out why in the most brutal way....

This is the first narration in this series by Stella Bloom. You know her from the Delta Force series. While a bit different than Erin Mallon's narration, this is still a wonderful performance.

I cannot wait for Susan Stoker to give me Taco and Koren, & Moose and Tiger's stories to finish the series!

But when a man enters her practice, murdering everyone in his path, Corrie is the only witness - putting her directly in the killer’s crosshairs.

Susan Stoker writes books that touch on social issues that can be very uncomfortable. She does this to bring light into the darkness that is our world today.

This series is about a group of First Responders in San Antonio Texas. You meet police and firefighters and the women (and men) they fall in love with.

Erin Mallon does a phenomenal job of bringing these characters to life. You always know who is speaking, regardless of there being 2, 5, or 15 characters in the scene. How she does this is pure magic!

They raised her like one of their own, alongside their daughter, Laura. Dawn soon finds herself falling for Jake, who recently moved to Silverpines, following his brother from Texas. Jake gets to know Dawn well and soon realizes he has fallen in love with her. The catch? Though society had come a long way, it still held prejudices against Native Americans and the whites who married them.

Dawn came to Silverpines as an orphaned Indian child given a white family as a slave. But never held in bondage, Dawn was raised as a daughter. When the ranch fell on hard times, Dawn kept working hard to pull her weight.

Jake came to Silverpines to work the livery. As soon as he met Dawn, his heart found his future. But when the local Chinook tribesmen take Dawn far away, Jake has to find her.

This is a wonderful telling of the writings of Ms. Goss. You won't be disappointed in this story!

Infirmities do not define a person. This wonderful narration of Ms. Trumbo's story comes to life to remind us all that God's plan is the best plan. Even if that means injuries, deformities, and mental challenges have happened.

Always push forward, but understand that God has it under control. Even if it isn't what you originally thought you wanted.

Ms. Williams brings to life the zany and loving texts and Skype messages that Daniel and Brenda share as they find true love can happen to people who just met at their own wedding.

J. Scott Bennett took the words from Kari Trumbo's story and made absolute magic!

This is the story of love unrequited, love lost, and love found. Stephenia fell in love with Arnold when he saved her from a brutal kidnapper. Arnold couldn't get past the fact he killed a man, no matter the reason. See, Arnold lost the love of his life, Lynnellen, in the river. He swore he'd never love again. But along the course of the year, Stephenia burrowed her way into his heart. When tragedy comes, Arnold had to face the fact, he might lose another love to that river.

This book is one to listen to over and over!

This installment in The Wicked Earl's Club is a warm and wonderful story. Kit and Grace meet at a wedding for a single dance, then meet again after the death of Kit's twin brother. The romance that started with that fateful dance blossoms along the pages of this well written novella.

Bringing the story to life is completed by Kevin Archer. His deep baritone voice sends chills down the spine! Mr. Archer has the most beautiful speaking voice. I hope to find more books narrated by him.
