The Demon's in the Details

Narrated by Greg Boudreaux The Demon’s in the Details is a riff on Rumpelstiltskin that hits the basic beats of the original without being an exact reproduction of it, transforming the passive main character into a brave, fiercely protective individual who can look out for himself, the king ...

White Trash Warlock

Narrated by Michael David Axtell David R. Slayton’s White Trash Warlock was recommended to me a while back (by Gregory Ashe, no less) so when I saw it in the Audible Plus catalogue, I pounced on it  – and I’m so glad I did, because I was completely glued to it for the entire nine-and-a-bit ...

Block Shot

Narrated by Teddy Hamilton and Seraphina Valentine Kennedy Ryan was a new-to-me author when I picked up Long Shot, the first book in the Hoops series.  I loved it.  It devastated, surprised and delighted me in equal measure, and it was one of my favorite books in 2018.  I didn’t think the fo ...

Wanderlust

Narrated by Richard Armitage and Grace Grant. I’ve enjoyed listening to several of Lauren Blakely’s light-hearted, sexy romances; they’re fun, easy listens, made moreso by the fact that they’re read by some of the best narrators in the business. Her latest story, Wanderlust, is set in Par ...

The Bird and the Sword

I discovered Amy Harmon's writing in the spring of 2014. In fact, A Different Blue was my very first review for AAR. Since then, I've read almost her entire backlist, and have eagerly awaited new releases. I was pleased to see The Bird and the Sword was available in audio format, as Ms. Harmon's ...

Narrated by Alex Wyndham I first listened to Lucinda Brant’s Salt Bride and Salt Redux a few years back, when they were most ably narrated by Marian Hussey. This new edition of both books (plus the novella, Salt Angel, originally published in A Timeless Romance Anthology: Silver Bells Collectio ...

Dark Horse

Narrated by Christina Delaine  Quite a few of my fellow reviewers have raved about Michelle Diener's Class 5 series. So, when the audio version of Dark Horse, the first book in the series, became available for review, I was eager to give it a listen. I'm pleased to report the story was everythi ...

Darkness Raging

Before I get into the plot of Darkness Raging, I want to caution readers who are not caught up with the Otherworld series not to read this review. Unfortunately, I can't adequately review this, the eighteenth entry in the series, without revealing some pretty serious spoilers relating to earlier boo ...

Potent Pleasures

Narrated by Susan Duerden I remember reading the other two books in this trilogy several years ago, but for some reason hadn’t read the first, Potent Pleasures, so listening to this new audiobook version seemed like a good idea. Unfortunately, it proved to be a disappointing experience overall, ...

Better When He's Bad

I have a friend who loves the work of author Jay Crownover. I've read several synopses and wasn't terribly impressed, but I decided to try Better When He's Bad, the first in Ms. Crownover's new series. Shane Baxter loves being bad. It's all he knows, and he doesn't see any reason to change it. Sure, ...
