Mark Beale and several of his brothers from SEAL Team 3 board a cruise ship to bury a fallen buddy's ashes at sea. A risky affair with a beautiful Italian the night before they leave begins to ease his survivor's guilt. Sophia Negri, suffering jitters over her engagement, falls for the handsome SEAL and pretends she speaks no English, letting their bodies do the talking. When Marc finds her on the ship and learns Sophia is half American, he is angry at first, but falls for her all over again as they set sail.

I love all your books Sharon and can't fault any of them. The only thing I am faulting you on is the "Italian" Sophia speaks. Ahem, it's actually Spanish. 😄 No wonder I couldn't understand what the Narrator was saying. Yes, my background is Italian. Love the Narrator's voice. Perfect!

In the short span of a year, Silver has gone from becoming a Mage to discovering the truth about her unique genetics. Logan Cross went from being her mortal enemy to becoming her immortal lover, but a threat is fast approaching like an inevitable storm. Attacks are under way against the Mageri, and one man is behind it-an elusive foe who is an unstoppable force. Nero is not Silver's only concern, as someone close to her has been arrested for treason.

I just didn't want this series to end! Dannika, you are a brilliant writer and I know that I will be listening to your books time and time again!
Nicole, you give Dannika's books such life but not only that you give all the characters a dimension that I sometimes forget it is a woman narrating.
I just finished listening to Shine and honestly, I didn't want it to end.

Audie Award, Audiobook of the Year, 2016. Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. "Jess and Jason," she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost. And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed. Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel offers what she knows to the police, and becomes inextricably entwined in what happens next, as well as in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good? Compulsively readable, The Girl on the Train is an emotionally immersive, Hitchcockian thriller and an electrifying debut.

As I listened to this book I kept thinking how annoying, weak, irritating and self centred the female characters were.... and yet, I was compelled to keep listening. I became so involved and mesmerised by all the characters. The narrators - particularly the lady narrating Rachel, How ironical though that I was listening to this book whilst I too was commuting on the train to work....always on the look out for my very own Jason and Jess.

It is 1939, Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier, and will become busier still. By her brother's graveside, Liesel's life is changed when she picks up a single object, partially hidden in the snow. It is The Gravedigger's Handbook, left there by accident, and it is her first act of book thievery. So begins a love affair with books and words, as Liesel, with the help of her accordion-playing foster father, learns to read. Soon she is stealing books from Nazi book-burnings.

It truly surpassed my expectations. It touched me, saddened me, made me laugh and yes, cry. My favourite person was papa - surely. How could he not be. I have recommended this audible book to many of my friends and family, not only because of the different perspective you get from the daily happenings in a street during WW2 but also because the narrator made the book come alive. Well done!
