Caleb Stone is wearing too many hats, and it’s making him crankier than usual. He’s a cowboy, a father, and the head of his large family - and has been since tragedy claimed his parents over 10 years ago. The ranch is struggling, but it's the title of single dad that’s got him tangled up in knots. He needs a full-time live-in nanny at the Silver Stone homestead in Heart Falls, Alberta, to help with his two little girls, but the woman about to arrive on his doorstep? Tantalizing, tempting, and trouble with capital T’s.

I did enjoy the story but I gave up with an one and half hours to go because I didn’t really care anymore. The narrator seemed to be reading a bit fast. If you like the family aspect a lot than your probably like this. Personally I felt it went on and on about the kids and then completely skipped over changing of settings making me confused.

Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he's alive - and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plainold "human error" are much more likely to kill him first.

This was the best Science fiction story I've ever heard/read/watched. I majored in chemistry in collage and took extensive math courses but I would often need to sit down and pay close attention to fully understand what is going on. I really enjoyed not becoming annoyed with certain situation because they weren't possible seems like most science-fiction these days have turned into science fantasy. I hope the author continues to write. I heard that this book was turning into a movie and hope he doesn't retire.I found the narrator to be very talented and pleasant to listen to.
