The Protector by Jodi Ellen Malpas

the protectorNarrated by Alexandra Baldwin & Owen MacMahon

I had high hopes for The Protector. I am a sucker for a rescue trope and the bodyguard hero usually has that sort of thing in spades. Unfortunately, my hopes were not realised. Not at all. The Protector was my first book by Ms. Malpas and my experience here does not make it likely I will read/listen to her work again.

Jake Sharp is a professional bodyguard and former SAS sniper. He clearly has something traumatic in his past and prefers to be on assignment to take his mind of his problems. Read the rest of this entry »

The Highlander by Kerrigan Byrne

The HighlanderNarrated by Derek Perkins

The Highlander is the third book in Kerrigan Byrne’s popular Victorian Rebels series, a dark, richly woven tale of a man trying to come to terms with his brutal past and a woman who has been so horribly abused that she has become a shadow of her former self.

The eponymous Highlander of the title is, to give him his full name, Lieutenant Colonel William Grant Ruaridh Mackenzie of the Her Majesty’s Highland Watch, Marquess Ravenscroft and Thane of Clan Mackenzie of Wester Ross. He is also a widower of some ten years with two teenaged children Read the rest of this entry »

The Duke and I by Julia Quinn

the-duke-and-iNarrated by Rosalyn Landor

I was first introduced to Julia Quinn and The Bridgertons series in the mid-2000s, when I started my audiobook listening in earnest. My first book in the series was When He Was Wicked, narrated by Simon Prebble, and released in 2006. I was totally, helplessly in love – with Michael (of course – smitten heroes are my favorite!), with Julia Quinn’s writing, with Simon Prebble’s voice. I quickly moved on to the next audiobook, It’s In His Kiss (#7, Hyacinth’s book) where I made the rookie mistake of listening to a humorous audiobook while having dental work done. Advice: don’t do it! Read the rest of this entry »

The Law of Attraction by Jay Northcote

The Law of AttractionNarrated by Matthew Lloyd Davies

I’ve enjoyed some Jay Northcote books in digital format in the past and Caz enjoyed Matthew Lloyd Davies’ narrations in the KJ Charles Society of Gentlemen series so I decided to take a gamble and give The Law of Attraction a go on audio. It was a gamble that didn’t pay off.

The Law of Attraction is a contemporary male/male romance set in present day London, about two lawyers (Alec and Ed) who meet at a bar and hook up and are then slightly horrified to find out the following Monday they are going to be working closely together. Read the rest of this entry »
