When a woman has to choose between death and marriage to a total stranger, she must be in a dire predicament.... And for Jolie McKibben, about to pay by hanging for a terrible crime she didn't commit, salvation by marriage couldn't come a moment too soon. Housekeeping for Daniel Beckham, a widower who invoked the town's wedding ordinance to rescue Jolie from the gallows, is better than the alternative...but understanding the silent stranger who is now her husband might just about kill her.

Despite political foes, professional jealousies, and the scandal which drove her into exile, Capt. Honor Harrington has been offered a chance to reclaim her career as an officer of the Royal Manticoran Navy. But there's a catch. She must assume command of a "squadron" of jury-rigged armed merchantmen with crew drawn from the dregs of her service and somehow stop the pirates who have taken advantage of the Havenite War to plunder the Star Kingdom's commerce.

I'm a huge Honor Harrington fan anyway, but when I was able to listen to the book, it took the experience to a whole new level. The narrator is amazing. She brought the characters to life in away reading a paper back never could. This book is a must get! I definitely recommend it.

By edict of the king, the mighty Scottish laird Alec Kincaid must take an English bride. His choice was Jamie the feisty youngest daughter of Baron Jamison.

Though his kisses fired her blood, shadowed secrets from Alec's past threatened Jamie's happiness. She brazenly resisted him - until one rapturous moment quelled their clash of wills.

I was disappointed in this book. It seems that as time goes on Christine is putting more and sex scenes that go on for ever and are so explicit. Is many cases the male leads are too aggressive sexually. The ladies if not submissive give in when they are uncomfortable and I don't think that is a good message to be sending to impressionable readers. An example, is when the man tells his lady that they WILL be doing it this way and she WILL allow him to touch her whenever or whereever they are. This seems to be happening more and more.

There was trouble in Haven, Arizona, and Ranger Sam O'Ballivan was determined to sort it all out. He arrived posing as the new schoolteacher, and his first order of business was to bring the rough ranchers' children under control. To that end, he called on Maddie Chancelor, the local postmistress, whose younger brother was in firm need of discipline. Sam wasn't sure what to expect - but it was definitely not this graceful woman whose prim, proper stance was so at odds with the fire in her eyes.
