The Duke by Kerrigan Byrne

Narrated by Derek Perkins Kerrigan Byrne’s brand of slightly darker, high-stakes romances featuring larger-than-life, dangerously sexy heroes and the women who love them has proved to be a hit with readers and listeners alike.

An Interview with Narrator Derek Perkins

Over the past few years, Derek Perkins (website and Facebook) has become one of my (fairly small list of) go-to narrators for romance.

Captured by a Laird by Margaret Mallory

Narrated by Derek Perkins Albert Einstein defined insanity as being the act of “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” Well, I’ve said several times that “Highlander” stories aren’t really my cup of tea, yet I still read and/or listen to the odd one or two and end up saying …
