Bright Side by Kim Holden

Bright SideNarrated by Lidia Dornet, Roger Wayne

What a heart-wrenching story! Bright Side is one of those gems that everyone should listen to help them appreciate what’s truly important in life. It’s so easy to get caught up in everything else and lose perspective. But sometimes, if you’re really lucky, you will come across that once-in-a-lifetime person, your “bright side” who, notwithstanding their own unfathomable plot in life, manages to balance a sense of epic selflessness and optimism that is inspiring and brings out the best in others.

Truly Sweet by Candis Terry

Truly SweetNarrated by Xe Sands

Book 5 in the author’s Sweet, Texas series, Truly Sweet brings the youngest Wilder son home from war in Afghanistan, injured and spirit almost broken. For a small town romance, the prologue is almost too graphic, too emotional – Jake and his men are ambushed, stranded and have to tough it out, waiting for backup and rescue. In the ensuing firefight, men are lost, and Jake almost loses his own life when a bullet tears through his thigh.

Chapter 1 opens a few months later, with Jake in Sweet, still using a cane, and honorably discharged from the Marines. Read the rest of this entry »

Throwback Thursday: About That Night by Julie James

About That NightNarrated by Karen White

Reviewed by Melinda on September 24, 2012


Once again, pairing Karen White’s straightforward  narration with Julie James’ sophisticated and amusing dialog is a perfect 10 for me, made even better by hearing it on my new iPhone 5. (OK, I don’t think the iPhone 5 actually sounds better, but I’m so pleased to have it that I’m imagining it does.)

Julie James, Anyone?

Julie JamesHere’s a summary with links of all interviews, features, and reviews we have had in association with author Julie James:



Brown-Eyed Girl by Lisa Kleypas

Brown-Eyed GirlNarrated by Brittany Pressley

Brown-Eyed Girl is the long awaited fourth and final book in Lisa Kleypas’ Travis Family series and Joe Travis finally gets his HEA. One of my very favourite audiobooks is Blue-Eyed Devil, the second book in the series and I therefore had very high hopes indeed for Brown-Eyed Girl.

Photographer Joe Travis meets wedding planner Avery Crosslin at a friend’s wedding. He is immediately smitten by Avery and coaxes and cajoles Avery into dancing with him near the end of the reception (in an out of the way corner because it is just not done for the wedding planner to behave like a wedding guest). Heated kisses at the doorstep of the guesthouse where Avery is spending the night lead her to invite him in for much more. Read the rest of this entry »

Dare to Love by Carly Phillips

dare to loveNarrated by Sophie Eastlake

Dare to Love is Carly Phillips “debut” novel for her newly-reinvented indie-author self and the beginning of a family dynasty series. After releasing more than 30 romance titles, she made the leap from a traditional publisher model and what she called “sweet and sexy romance” to having more control over the writing and publishing process, and made the decision to turn up the heat as well. It’s a style that is hotter than a regular contemporary romance, and not exactly erotic romance. Read the rest of this entry »
