Mercy by B.J. Daniels

MercyNarrated by Graham Winton

Occasionally, I like to step out of my comfort zone and try a romance in a sub-genre other than historical, contemporary, or paranormal. Possibly I find a blurb compelling, or I feel challenged to broaden my romance horizons, or (because I’m shallow) the cover looks particularly tasty. While the cover for Mercy was eye-catching – who can resist a hot man leaning on an even hotter car! – I chose it because of the very intriguing, and very vague, blurb.

Rourke Kincaid is a man obsessed with justice. Over the past four years, a woman has managed to kill at least three men and then disappear without a trace. Rourke, on “leave” from the US Marshals after an Read the rest of this entry »

Fading by E. K. Blair

FadingNarrated by Piper Goodeve

Once I finish a book, I’m usually pretty certain how I feel about it. I can tell you if I loved it or hated it, and I can always tell you why. This is not the case with Fading. This intensely powerful and moving story has left me conflicted.

Candace Parker is twenty-two, and a senior in college. As an aspiring ballerina, she doesn’t have a lot of time for the normal kinds of college fun. Instead, she focuses on schoolwork and dancing.

Off the Edge by Carolyn Crane

off the edgeNarrated by Romy Nordlinger

Off the Edge is book two in Carolyn Crane’s Undercover Associates series but it stands alone very well. I haven’t read or listened to the first book but had no trouble following the story.

Laney Lancaster is a woman on the run from her evil ex-husband. She’s been hiding for two years in Bangkok, Thailand, and living and working as a lounge singer at the Imperiale Hotel des Roses run by the Shinsuran brothers and their sister (and her BFF), Rajini. Despite the fact that she has apparently successfully escaped from her ex-husband’s clutches, Laney is terribly naïve when it comes to the people around her. Read the rest of this entry »

Blame It on Bath is the second book in Ms Linden’s The Truth About the Duke series, which features the three sons of the late Duke of Durham. On his deathbed, the duke tells his two youngest sons – Edward and Gerard – that he had been blackmailed because someone had discovered a marriage that predated his marriage to their mother, and that there is a chance that they are all illegitimate.

Each book in the series follows one of the brothers as he makes the attempt, in his own way, to discover the truth. The first book, One Night in London, follows Edward, the middle brother, and in this one Gerard (the youngest) – more of a man of action than his Read the rest of this entry »

The Slow Burn of Silence by Loreth Anne White

The Slow Burn of SilenceNarrated by Tanya Eby and Alexander Cendese

Previously published as Pieces of You, The Slow Burn of Silence is a thrilling mystery and a tender love story. Ms. White does a fabulous job balancing the plot elements so one does not overpower the other. She gives us a glimpse into small town life, showing us that things are not always as peaceful and serene as they might appear.
