Texas Tall by Kaki Warner

texas-tallNarrated by Sean Crisden

Lottie Weyland was orphaned young and raised by her grandfather; at age 14, after his death in 1875, she burns the family West Texas home and heads out on her own. Three years later, she’s living peacefully in Greenbroke, Texas, where she has taught herself bookkeeping and dreams of investing in land and mineral rights, being independently wealthy and never going hungry again. She catches the eye of a young Texas Ranger, Tyree Benton, who was passing through Greenbroke with a prisoner. But Texas Rangers can’t be married, so Ty knows he has no business thinking of Lottie.

Why Mermaids Sing by C.S. Harris

why-mermaids-singNarrated by Davina Porter

C.S. Harris’ series of mysteries set in Regency England featuring aristocratic sleuth Sebastian St. Cyr is one I’ve been meaning to get around to reading for ages, but with the series now comprising eleven books with more on the way, I shifted it from my TBR to my TBL pile earlier this year. I enjoyed book one, What Angels Fear, a great deal and as a result, decided to carry on with the series in audio format.

I’m now up to book three, Why Mermaids Sing. While the central mystery in each book is self-contained and resolved by the end, there are plot threads and character relationships that are carried across from book to book Read the rest of this entry »

Play It Safe by Kristen Ashley 

play-it-safeNarrated by Savannah Richards

I can always count on Kristen Ashley for a satisfying, protective alpha hero romance. Play It Safe, however, turns the typical KA trope on its head, proving that heroines can be protective heroes too! Adding to the enjoyment of this romance is the underlying suspense arc and the complex, interwoven secondary characters which add a whole other layer to this entertaining listen. Moreover, this title is a great one to choose in audio format due to Savannah Richards’ expert narration.

Slightly Married by Mary Balogh

Slightly MarriedNarrated by Rosalyn Landor

Tantor is following its reissue of Mary Balogh’s Simply Quartet with new recordings of the Slightly series, six novels about the Bedwyn siblings which have been on the wish list of many a romance audio fan for some time, starting with Book 1, Slightly Married. Anyone who has read or listened to the Simply books will already have met most of the Bedwyns and be aware of who ends up with whom, but that doesn’t take anything away from the pleasure of being able to hear their stories in audio for the first time.

Beauty and the Clockwork Beast by Nancy Campbell Allen

beauty-and-the-clockwork-beastNarrated by Saskia Maarleveld

A Victorian era steampunk/paranormal story, Beauty and the Clockwork Beast is the first in a projected series from this new-to-me-author, and while it was an enjoyable listen, I can’t say that it breaks any new ground. The story is a fairly predictable one, and while the author has peppered the text with things like “telescribers” (which I imagine are mobile phones or tablets), “tons” (short for automatons which are programmed by means of metal punched-cards), steam-powered airships and ray guns; and thrown in a few vampires and shape-shifters for good measure, I never felt Read the rest of this entry »
