    I’ve only tried an audiobook once and the narrator was so horrible that after 10 minutes of torture listening to him I quit the book. I was really disappointed as it was a book by an author I really love the guys voice was so squeaky and awful I just couldn’t continue listening to it and the book was cheap it was supposed to be a gift to me that turned sour quickly but that was a number of years ago and I’ve since been thinking about giving them another try.

  2. mommiemegs

    I listened to the entire Rock Chick series by Kristen Ashley and that was good. I also like Beautiful Bastard by Christina Laurenon audio.

  3. kec200

    I really enjoyed the audio version of Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum series for the first part of the series. Then they changed narrator’s and it was awful! Once you start a series you should carry on with the same narrator. I had to finish reading the series on print books!

  4. Irma Jurejevčič

    Jennifer Probst, Emma Chase, Kristen Proby, Melody Anne, and Kate Meader. Because I love Colleen.

    You asked: Your favorite audiobook, one you would recommend to HJ reader’s here. Tell us why?

    I have not listened to any of the new audio books. The last time I listened to a book on tape was an actual book on cassette tape. 🙂 I was enthralled with Sue Grafton’s Alphabet Series. That was an awesome series back then.

    The current audio books are too expensive for my blood right now. I have heard good and bad feedback about them. The voices doing the reading was the biggest negative I heard because they didn’t match the listeners vision of the characters. I do want to try them in the future.

    Thanks for the opportunity!

    I have not tried an audiobook yet. However, I recently started a new job involving a commute . I am going to try an audiobook soon. In fact I purchased Anthea Lawson’s SONATA FOR A SCOUNDREL yesterday from Audible.

  7. BethRe

    I’ve only listened to a couple of audio books Water for Elephants which was really good and a Karen Kingbury Baxter book. Since I have an hour commute each way this would be an awesome thing to win

  8. kgagnon2013

    I enjoy Karen White’s audiobooks, some of my favorites are the Julie James books especially ‘Just the Sexiest Man Alive’ it is a fun story with the best banter. =D

  9. Christine

    Beautiful Player by Christina Lauren is definitely a favourite, as is anything Karen White narrates (the Julie James and Jill Shalvis stories in particular)

  10. Kristy Dean

    I have not used audio books for years. The last ones I used was for kids in my class.

  11. Janie McGaugh

    It would have to be Outlander, because it is so well done, you just get lost in it (and, of course, it’s a great book).

  12. manic33

    Rock Chick series by Kristen Ashley. It’s hilarious and the narrator does an amazing job! I’ve just started the 3rd book.

  13. Tracy Marr

    I love audiobooks and have listened to them for more than 20 years – back in the days when there were tapes! Amanda Quick’s Ravished is my favorite romance, and I recommend it in print or audio. As one of the other comments noted, the narrator is so important, and Anne Flosnick does a wonderful job with Quick’s books.

  14. Terri C

    I just finished listening to The Boots My Mother Gave Me by Brooklyn James and it was amazing. I think it’s the only 5 Star I’ve ever given an audio book. Very unique format, wonderful writing and narration, all done by Brooklyn James.

  15. BSBbabe

    My favorite audiobook that I listened to this year was Screwdrivered by Alice Clayton because it was a funny story and the narrator did a great job of giving each character their own individual voice.

  16. anne3230

    Murder of Crows and Written In Red by Anne Bishop. I can listen to both over and over again. Great stories and narrator.

  17. Amy Rickman

    I’ve only listened to 1 audiobook and I wasn’t a fan. I’ve thought about trying one for a book I’ve already read but haven’t yet.

  18. Trudy Dowling

    I’m Dreaming of an Undead Christmas by Molly Harper is a great audiobook. The narrator is excellent, and the story is hilarious. It is a short listen, making it great for travel .

  19. megankellybooks

    The audio of the Outlander series is amazing. Davina Porter made me fall in love with all the Scots and Claire (note I leave out both Randall men!). Of course it starts with a fabulous story by Diana Gabaldon.

  20. kateivan

    The only audiobook I’ve listened to is THE ROSIE PROJECT, which is funny and poignant all at the same time.

  21. doveknoll

    The one that stays with me is my first audio book, In Garden of Good and Evil. It was a great story and the narrator was fabulous. The voices he used for each character was spot on. I loved it and even bought the book after listening to it. Thanks for the fantastic giveaway.

  22. Erin J.

    I mainly listen to more fantasy and scifi books on audiobook since I listen to them at work, but The Witching Savannah books are pretty good to listen to and have a bit more of romance in them.

  23. Nicole Potter

    I actually haven’t had a chance to listen to a single audio book yet! Though I do have all of Kresley Cole’s IAD series on my wish list for it! Have you heard the narrator for those? BEAUTIFUL voice!! <3

  24. Glenda S. Hefty

    I don’t usually listen to audio books…haven’t in a number of years so can’t really say I have a favorite. Any book I would like to read would be okay to listen to, some maybe more than others.

  25. Kim Perry

    I really enjoy the audiobooks in the Callaways series by Barbara Feethy! The female narrator is really good conveying both the male and female POV’s.

  26. Judy-Ree

    I have 2 actually.. and they are both trilogies. The first is The Redhead series by Alice Clayton. I laughed so hard at one point I had to pull my car off the road. The second is The Immortal Empire by Kate Locke. This was a wonderfully original steampunk alternate reality take on vamps, weres and other creatures of the night. The narrators did fabulous jobs on both.

  27. Cathy P

    I love Suzan Tisdale’s audiobooks. Her books are wonderful and most of them are done by Brad Willis, and he has a great voice.

  28. Kim R

    Audiobooks are an awesome way to pass the time on the commute. Or while doing other task around the house and yard.

  29. Susan T.

    I loved The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair and Caroline Kepnes “You” although neither are romantic and “You” will give you nightmares! Both of them kept me listening in suspense!

  30. Michelle Harlan

    It’s not a Harlequin title, but my favorite audiobook is Shadowfever by Karen Marie Moning. Actually, her Highlander books are terrific audiobooks, too.

  31. BookLady

    I have not yet listened to any audiobooks, but I would love to win some.

  32. veRONIca

    Honestly, I’ve yet to listen to an audiobook, but I have a long walk to work so I really should look into it because it seems like it would definitely help the walk pass faster

  33. Maureen

    Blue-Eyed Devil by Lisa Kleypas because it is one of my favorite stories.

  34. Jennifer Zorko

    Jill Shalvis, JR Ward and Kristan Higgins. They are among my favorites. I recently listened to Donna Grant and loved her audiobooks as well.

  35. Yazmin R

    Books by Emma Chase & by Christina Lauren are my favorites, And if they are narrated by Sebastian York even better, lol. 😉

  36. evaallbooksconsidered

    Escape to New Zealand series by Rosalind James — just awesome!!

  37. taswmom

    I tried an audiobook once, and couldn’t stand the narrators voice, or the way they paused, and tried so hard to be dramatic, that I haven’t tried again. I know that was a long time ago, and they’ve really improved, so if I win, I’ll try audiobooks again.
