Julia Quinn reminds me why I love historical romances. THE VICOUNT WHO LOVES ME is the second book in the Bridgertons series, and I continued my adventures on audio. Kate Sheffield and the Viscount Anthony Bridgerton provided a hilarious romance filled with snark, stupidity, HEART, and heat. I dare you not to fall in love.
When the opportunity to review the audio of THE DUKE AND I, by Julia Quinn came along, I jumped at the chance. The first book in the Bridgertons series, this historical romance delivered with strong characters, humor, delicious banter and swoons.
Breath of Fire by Amanda Bouchet is the second novel in the Kingmaker Chronicles series and was one of my most anticipated audios for 2017. Once again I was swept up in this world with its mythology, kick-ass heroine, and motley crew. While I devoured the audio, it was not without flaws and disappointments.
A Deadly Affection by Cuyler Overholt is the first novel in the Dr. Genevieve Summerford Mystery series. Dr. Summerford is one of the only female practitioners in New York City in the year 1907. Narrated by Carly Robins this story is filled shares a murder-mystery, humor and fascinating insight into this era, I quickly found myself drawn into the world.
The Watson Brothers a collection of novellas by Lori Foster were packaged together for audio and narrated by Jim Frangione. At just under nine hours these were fun, heated romances surround the Watson brothers. Ya’ll know I adore stories with brothers and Lori Foster is an author I can depend on for a good time.
I listened to A Promise of Fire the first book in the Kingmaker Chronicles written by Amanda Bouchet and narrated by Mia Barron. It was brilliant, addictive, funny, and romantic. I need more of these characters and world now!
Annnd it is over.*weeps over coffee cup* Steel’s Edge by Ilona Andrews is the last book in the Edge series. Once again, I listened as Renee Raudman narrated. Fans of the series are rewarded with answers regarding Spider and the Hand in this action-packed edition. Charlotte de Nay is headstrong and her romance with Richard Mar was delightful.
The One You Want by Gena Showalter is book 0.5 in the Original Heartbreakers series. I listened to the story narrated by Savannah Richards. I loved the small-town setting and concept, but The One You Want felt too over the top and ended up falling short for me.
OMG..I am finally up-to-date with the Kate Daniels’ series and have now joined the ranks of fans waiting for more! Magic Breaks about blew my mind. As ya’ll know I am listening to the audio books narrated by the fabulous Renée Raudman. In the audio edition, we get a message from the author(s) as we have reached a pivotal point in the arc plot. I was glad since this almost read like the final book and that my friends would have been awful. Mind blowing, action packed and a superb example of the brilliance that comprises this writing duo I was left spent and wordless.
