Our March 2017 Picks

Another month, another list of the audiobooks the Gals are most looking forward to listening to over the coming weeks. Some of these titles are already available, some are coming out later in the month, but in each case, our choices are based on a variety of factors; author, narrator, story… or just gut instinct. Are any of these on your wish list? Have you listened to any of them and if so, what did you think? Have we missed out anything you’re looking forward to? Join in the discussion in the comments.

 

Silence Fallen by Patricia BriggsSilence Fallen by Patricia Briggs

Narrated by Lorelei King

Book Ten in the Mercy Thompson series comes out in March, featuring one of my all-time favorite PNR/UF writer/narrator teams. I read an ARC of the book already, as my curiosity was killing me, but the full production with the very talented Lorelei King narrating will no doubt be even better. – BJ

I’m a long-time fan of the Mercy Thompson series, and I can’t wait to see where the author takes things in this latest installment. Lorelei King has become the voice of Mercy, so I’m elated to see her back at the helm. – Shannon

 

The Deep End by Kristen AshleyThe Deep End by Kristen Ashley

Narrated by Lizbeth Gwynn

Kristen Ashley’s latest book comes out in March and she’s trying on a whole new sub-genre of romance which takes place in the BDSM world. If there is any writer that could pull it off, and pull it off well, it’s Kristen Ashley as she has already proven herself talented enough to write anything from straight contemporary romance to MC romance and PNR/fantasy romance. So though I have never heard of the narrator (and this is her only title in Audible), I’m putting The Deep End on my TBL for March. – BJ

 

Slightly Tempted by Mary BaloghSlightly Sinful by Mary Balogh

Narrated by Rosalyn Landor

The fifth book in the Bedwyn series is Alleyne’s story.  He comes across as a carefree, lighthearted fellow in the previous books, so this story of how he comes to be cut off from his past and how he finds his future sounds like I’m in for a nice, angsty listen.  – Caz

 

 

You May Kiss the Bride by Lisa BerneYou May Kiss the Bride by Lisa Berne

Narrated by Carolyn Morris

I admit I’ve picked this purely because Carolyn Morris is the narrator, and I’m pleased to see her narrating historical romance again.  This is Lisa Berne’s début novel, and I admit that the premise is nothing new, but I’m looking forward to giving it a try. – Caz

 

 

The Illusionist's Apprentice by Kristy CambronThe Illusionist’s Apprentice by Kristy Cambron

Narrated by Amy Rubinate

Kristy Cambron is an author I’m not familiar with, but I love books set in the Vaudeville era. The Illusionist’s Apprentice looks like it’s going to be right up my alley. Plus, Amy Rubinate is an accomplished narrator, so I’m assured of a positive listening experience. – Shannon

 

 

An Unseen Attraction by K.J CharlesAn Unseen Attraction by K.J Charles

Narrated by Matthew Lloyd Davies

This actually came out at the end of February, but I couldn’t not list it, as K.J Charles is one of my favourite authors and anything new from her is worthy of mention!  This is the first in her new Sins of the Cities series set in Victorian London and which takes inspiration from the popular Sensation fiction of the day.  I’ve read the book and enjoyed it very much; there’s a well-plotted mystery to be solved and a lovely developing romance between an Anglo-Indian lodging house keeper and his next door neighbour, a preserver or taxidermist.  This is almost certainly the only book I’ve ever read in which the romantic interest is engaged in such an odd profession!  I enjoyed Matthew Lloyd Davies’ performances in the author’s Society of Gentlemen series and am glad he’s back on board for this new one. – Caz

Over the Line by Cindy GerardOver the Line by Cindy Gerard

Narrated by Alastair Haynesbridge

I am RIDICULOUSLY excited about a whole pile of Cindy Gerard titles being released on audio this month. I have HIGH HOPES!! – Kaetrin

 

 

 

Blush for Me by Kristen ProbyBlush for Me by Kristen Proby

Narrated by Sebastian York & Abby Craden

I loved Listen to Me and the blurb for Blush for Me sounds a bit like my catnip. – Kaetrin

 

 

 

 

The Night Mark by Tiffany ReiszThe Night Mark by Tiffany Reisz

Narrated by Teri Schnaubelt

I’m a huge fan of anything Tiffany Reisz creates, so her latest novel is an autobuy for me. I’ve listened to and enjoyed Teri Schnaubelt in the past, so I’m pretty sure this will be excellent on all fronts. – Shannon

 

 

 

Infini by Krista and Becca RitchieInfini by Becca and Krista Ritchie

Narrated by Bahni Turpin and Johnathan McClain

Amour Amour, the first book in the Aerial Ethereal series was one of my favorite stories of 2016, though I didn’t particularly like the narration.  For book two of this acrobatic circus-based romance series we have new narrators, so although I’m not familiar with them, I’m looking forward to listening to this. – BJ

 

 

Twist by Kylie ScottTwist by Kylie Scott

Narrated by Andi Arndt

I really enjoyed Dirty so I’m definitely looking forward to Twist. – Kaetrin

 

 

 

 

Tatiana and Alexander by Paullina Simons

Tatiana and Alexander & The Summer Garden
The Summer Gardenby Paulina Simons

Narrated by James Langton

I’m so glad books two and three in The Bronze Horseman trilogy are being released in audio format. I’ve heard such great things about this series, and, now that the entire trilogy is available and narrated by the fabulous James Langton, I’m getting ready to set aside a large chunk of time to dive right in. – Shannon

Bedchamber Games by Tracy Anne WarrenBedchamber Games by Tracy Anne Warren

Narrated by Beverly A. Crick

This final book in the Rakes of Cavendish Square trilogy focuses on Lord Lawrence Byron, a respected barrister, who meets his match in the form of a formidable young woman who is forced to pose as a man in order to finish her late father’s caseloadAfter the disaster that was Happily Bedded Bliss, Tantor has very sensibly utilised the narrating talent of the always enjoyable Ms. Crick. – Caz

    @Shannon: I’ve heard that there are two narrators on the new Briggs book, a male reader with Lorelei King. Do you know anything about this?

    @Caz: The release of Slightly Tempted means Wulfric and Christine’s story Slightly Dangerous is coming soon, a book I love with all my heart. Also the end of ST is really beautiful, Mary Balogh and Rosalyn Landor are a good remedy for my dry eye syndrome. :)

      RL told me earlier she’s just finished recording SD, so it will certainly be with us soon :) I’m a bit behind on the series though – I finished Freya’s book a couple of weeks back and really liked it. MB does a fab job of making a previously not-so-likeable character more approachable and understandable.
