The Taming of Malcolm Grant by Paula Quinn

The Taming of Malcolm GrantNarrated by Carrington MacDuffie

Highlander romances are one of my favorite romance tropes. There’s something about a rugged, untamable man in a kilt that makes a man so…manly. Someday I have hopes of finding a Highlander on my doorstep.

The Taming of Malcolm Grant is the fourth book in her Highland Heirs series; the children of those characters in her Highland Mist series. Emmaline Grey, blind since an illness in childhood, has come to England from France to live with the brother she recently rediscovered. Living upstairs in an inn that doubles as a brothel is not the most ideal situation Read the rest of this entry »

Grayson’s Vow by Mia Sheridan

Graysons VowNarrated by Maxine Mitchell and Joe Arden

What begins as a contentious business arrangement leads to a path of unexpected healing and love for a couple that once was short changed in the love department, albeit in different ways, by their parents. Lovers of emotional, angst-filled, New Adult romances will not want to miss the satisfying, hope-filled romantic journey in Grayson’s Vow. Further magnifying the feel good, root for the underdog classic feel of this story – and yet fired and heated exchanges between a couple that starts off in a dubious relationship – is the satisfying narration by Maxine Mitchell and Joe Arden.

Caz’s Classics Corner: Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen

Sense and Sensibility - LandorNarrated by Rosalyn Landor

I confess that when it comes to Jane Austen’s novels, I have an A team and a B team. The A team consists of Emma, Pride and Prejudice and Persuasion, and the B team of Sense and Sensibility and Northanger Abbey. Mansfield Park kind of hovers between the two – it’s a wonderful book but the heroine is difficult to like and understand for much of it, which can make it a bit problematic.

While I own at least one version of my Austen A team books in audio, I don’t have any of the B team ones, so when I saw that Rosalyn Landor Read the rest of this entry »

Game On by Gabra Zackman

Game OnNarrated by: Gabra Zackman, Therese Plummer, Lauren Fortgang, Piper Goodeve, LJ Ganser, Mark Boyett, Julia Motyka, Eileen Stevens, Peter Ganim, James Fouhey, Christopher Kipiniak and Allyson Johnson

Yes, you read that right: Game On has a full voice cast. Every main character is performed by a different narrator, as is the narrative section. It was different enough to be an attractive prospect to this listener.

Game On is billed as part Ocean’s Eleven-type caper, part romantic comedy. Susannah Carter works for FTP, a private investigations firm Read the rest of this entry »

Not Quite Perfect by Gretchen Galway

Not Quite PerfectNarrated by Tanya Eby

Drifter/slacker April Johnson is nothing like her siblings. With 2 high-achiever, successful older brothers, including a gold-medal Olympian, the heroine of Not Quite Perfect has given up on trying to compete, and now spends her days as a temp, wishing she could be an artist. She’s just been abandoned by her latest boyfriend, who left without paying the rent, so she’s also homeless, along with his three-legged rescue dog, Stool. Against the wishes of her brother Liam, she moves back in with their mom. Then she finagles a temp job at Liam’s fitness wear company, in the graphic arts department Read the rest of this entry »

Fully Ignited by Shannon Stacey

Fully IgnitedNarrated by Tatiana Sokolov

The third and youngest Kincaid sibling finds his HEA in the final book of Shannon Stacey’s Boston Fire trilogy, Fully Ignited.

Scott Kincaid is feeling a little jealous of all the love and happiness going around. His sisters are both happy with their respective partners (who also happen to be his best friends) and his buddy Rick Gulotti is all loved up too. For a long time, Scott was happy to play the field but he’s feeling the itch to settle down. Near the end of the previous book, Controlled Burn, Scott went on a “dating hiatus”. It sounds counterintuitive, but the idea was sound. Read the rest of this entry »
