Courageous Minerva Peabody, a poor but passionate playwright, is cursed to be living in Elizabethan England, when women most assuredly did not write plays. Determined to succeed, Min impulsively enlists the help of the first man she sees to be her “cover”. Blake, her chosen surrogate, a handsome blue-eyed sea captain with his own agenda, is a man with a mysterious past, a wondrous pair of shoulders, and an irresistible aura of intrigue. Her Secret Desire speaks to any woman who never gives up.

I really enjoyed this book, all of it... and the reader of the book was just perfect. She did the voices, inflections everything just right. She infused a humor into her voice for the main character that felt exactly right. Top quality

Really enjoyed the story, lots of interesting characters that are believable and likeable, and the narrators changing voices brings them even more to life.

Ginger Stuyvesant, an American heiress living in London during World War I, is engaged to Captain Benjamin Hartshorne, an intelligence officer. Ginger is a medium for the Spirit Corps, a special Spiritualist force. Each soldier heading for the front is conditioned to report to the mediums of the Spirit Corps when they die so the corps can pass instant information about troop movements to military intelligence. Ginger and her fellow mediums contribute a great deal to the war efforts, so long as they pass the information through appropriate channels.

One night Kylie Galen finds herself at the wrong party, with the wrong people, and it changes her life forever. Her mother ships her off to Shadow Falls - a camp for troubled teens, and within hours of arriving, it becomes painfully clear that her fellow campers aren’t just "troubled". Here at Shadow Falls, vampires, werewolves, shapshifters, witches and fairies train side by side - learning to harness their powers, control their magic, and live in the normal world. Kylie’s never felt normal, but surely she doesn’t belong here with a bunch of paranormal freaks either. Or does she?

I am learning Spanish, and listening to children's books to help with my conversational understanding, and it is helping. So, know as you read this review that there was quite a bit of the story that I did not completely understand. What I did understand, I found a little stereotypical. The reading added to this by the voice used for the old grandfather shaman.
