Death Angel - Linda Howard

Open Season - Linda Howard
Veil of Night - Linda Howard

February inadvertently became a  Linda Howard-a-thon for me.  For some reason I realized I don't think I'd ever read   Kiss Me While I Sleep - Linda Howard  (which is the third book in her CIA spies series).  So I used one of my eleventy-thousand audible credits on it.

 

I enjoyed the listen so much that I decided to get the audiobooks of the other two in the series.

 

That put me in both a Linda Howard mood and an audio listening mood, whereupon I listened to almost all of her rom-suspense backlist (minus a few that I know I didn't like).

 

Unlike most of the authors I listen to, she doesn't have a single narrator that kind of sticks with her stuff.  Instead almost every book has a different narrator.  The cool thing, they all were fantastic.  Which is a rarity.  There is usually a dud when you're reading a bunch of different ones.  But nope.  All of them were good.

 

Some of the books I had read multiple times before and was re-"reading" via the listen.  Some of them I had either never read before or forgot so much that they were like new.

 

My hands down favorite -- gets me every time -- is Cry No More - Linda Howard .  Damn, those last few chapters just gut me, but then I sigh so happily when the story is over. 

 

One book that I think did much better in audio than in visual reading was Veil of Night - Linda Howard.  I enjoyed this book more than a lot of people anyway, but I think the audio version is even more enjoyable.  The narrator has this great whisky-toned voice and does a fantastic Southern accent.

 

The one that was most fun to listen to was Open Season - Linda Howard .  Like, Veil of Night, I think I enjoyed the listening more than I originally enjoyed the original read of the book.

 

A revelation was All the Queen's Men - Linda Howard .  I know I'd read this book when it first came out but couldn't remember a thing about it.  Again the audio was a really good listen.  And surprisingly I found myself extremely sympathetic to the bad guy.  I didn't want anything to happen to him!  I even went so far as to check to see if he later becomes a main hero in a subsequent book., cuz honestly I didn't want him to die or anything.  As far as I can tell he doesn't,  so Linda Howard needs to get on that stat!

 

Outside of the Rom-Suspense I also went back and read some of her early harlequins/silhouettes  (not audio, tho).  Some have held up well (Makenzie's Mountain, Loving Evangeline, Duncan's Bride) and some really haven't (I invite you to visit  my review of All That Glitters).

Shades of fucked up
Shades Of Twilight - Linda Howard

There is a reason why this book is getting such a low rating.
It scarred me for life and here I thought I was going to get brain candy.
I cannot even write a rant because I am so distressed.

 

But because I don't want people to be scarred for life like I was, I will tell you why this book got a horrible rating(this is not a spoiler).

 

One of the 'couples' in this book are a pair of Father and Daughter but the daughter does die (and I cannot tell you if the father does) so there is that.

 

When I say couple, yes, I DO mean that the two are banging each other, and not just banging but doing all kinky things you can imagine.

 

Let me also say she does this because she is turned on by how forbidden their relationship is and yes I do believe she led him on (she talks about how she rubbed her boobs against him and said 'daddy'). She does this to spite her husband who doesn't know she is cheating on him, That he unknowingly sleeps with such a fucked up piece of shit (that's what I am going to call her) makes her incredibly happy. 

 

I just cannot. I really cannot wrap my head around that.

 

Of course these two fucktards aren't the main couple but I don't care. I really don't. How can anyone expect me to enjoy the story with that going on? 

 

Oh did I mention after the fucked up piece of shit dies, the dad mourns her (not in a fatherly way) and talks about how they killed his beautiful little... (I don't remember, my mind blocked it out, it's preventing me from the Trauma, good mind.). 

 

Yeah that's all I have to say.

Shades Of Twilight - Linda Howard Shades Of Twilight - Linda Howard Would have given the story 4 stars, but this was the kindle edition (re-print, I'm assuming, or at least I hope) and the errors were atrocious. The last name, Davencourt, kept changing to Davenport (at least a dozen times, if not more, for one major example).The story itself, however, was very good.
