Running Wild: The Men from Battle Ridge

Running Wild is the second successful collaboration between Linda Howard and Linda Jones. From my point of view the two have merged their writing talents seamlessly to write a slightly flawed but enjoyable read. Zeke Decker never really thought that his long time housekeeper Libby would leave, ev ...

Kill and Tell

Narrated by Natalie Ross Kill and Tell is a terrific combination – one of my favorite narrators with a work by one of my favorite authors, set in one of my favorite cities, New Orleans. Marc Chastain, NOPD, has a gut feeling that the death of a man deemed homeless just doesn’t fit the normal ...

A
Death Angel

Narrated by Joyce Bean Back in 2008, I hesitantly picked up the print version of Death Angel wondering if I could enjoy a romance featuring a cold-blooded assassin and a mistress to a drug lord. My curiosity combined with faith in Linda Howard and an appreciation for edgy heroes rewarded me after ...

Prey

One of the problems a beloved author like Howard faces is extremely high expectations. Anyone who has read Cry No More, Open Season, All the Queen's Men, Dream Man - heck, just about anything in her back list - knows she is capable of great things. When I read her books I often find myself comparing ...

To Die For

Narrated by Fran Liebow Easily sitting in my top five favorite contemporaries, I fell in love with Blair and Wyatt in the print version and read To Die For twice before discovering in audio. I excitedly purchased a copy online only to wait weeks for it to arrive in the mail (no digital downloads ...

Veil of Night

I’ve read three Linda Howard books at this point, and I’ve come to the conclusion that she is an author I like but don’t love. I’ve enjoyed two out of the three, but neither of them push her into auto-buy status for me. Veil of Night has some funny moments and great sex scenes, but when all ...

Blood Born

A war is brewing between human and vampire. Problem is, neither side declared it. Luca Ambrose is one of the rarest of the rare: Born vampire rather than a turned one. His powers are stronger, his senses more acute. For the past several years he has worked as an enforcer for the C ...

A
Son of the Morning

Narrated by Natalie Ross Only recently released in audio format, this 1997 time travel romance gets an A on both narration and content. Hero Niall is classic Howard style at its best while Grace is the smart woman on the run. Narrator Natalie Ross performs multiple male voices with clear distinctio ...

B
Ice

Linda Howard is a storyteller. And when she "hears" characters speaking to her as she told me they do in an AAR interview, she is compelled to tell their stories. Sometimes that means her characters send her down a different path than ones readers have come to expect. Such is the case with Ice. T ...

B
Burn

I have read all of Linda Howard's books and up until a few years ago, I read them for her heroes, who with a few exceptions are alpha men of the best kind. However, lately I have been enjoying her heroines more. They are no longer the doormats of some of her earlier books (like Sarah Matthews from ...
