Publisher's Summary

Paradise, Idaho, may not be the largest town, but for newly minted professor Zoe Santangelo, it's the first step on the path to her big break. After teaching in a small Idaho school, her next stop is the Ivy League, and no one is going to stand in her way. She'll do what it takes to move up, to protect her students from a creepy campus stalker - and to protect her heart from Cal Jackson, the hot, hunky cowboy who keeps coming to her rescue.

After a career-ending injury, Cal has left professional football behind and come home to work the family farm. He's determined not to get mixed up with any more city girls who don't want to settle down with a country boy. But after he rescues sassy geologist Zoe from a snowy ditch, he can't stop thinking about her. Can Cal keep Zoe safe from whoever is targeting her - and can he show her that having ambition doesn't mean she has to sacrifice love?

    "Fantastic new to me author! Loved it!"

    This was a great listen ~ not only was the narration TOP notch, but the story was excellent...lots of romance, but enough suspense to keep me guessing all the way through. Likeable characters who totally sucked you into the story...I hope, HOPE there's more out there for me to discover!! I bought this one on a whim, for narration alone, and loved the story! I'm hooked!

    "PHIL GIGANTE'S SEXY VOICE GIVES ME SHIVERS"

    What an all round great listen..... there's the chilling mystery and suspense of the sub plot, the beautiful sexy romance between Cal and Zoe who are both very likeable fun characters and they have such great chemistry and rapport. Then there's the teamwork of two awesome narrators who each stuck to their own gender's words making the book flow like a conversation. Finally, you get 11 hours of an entertaining and enjoyable listen for under $8 - so no need to use a credit therefore there's absolutely no dilemma here..... just add it to your cart now.

    "Great 1st book in a new series that is outstanding"

    This is a book/series is departure from Rosalind James' previous "Escape to New Zealand" and "The Kincaids" series. It definitely fits in the romantic suspense category because there is a villain that creates a situation where you're not quite sure what's truly happening all the way around so you're kept waiting (in a good way) for things to cogamut of witty, sexy, exasperating, confusing, frustrating, intense, and tender. Sincntinue to unfold/be revealed and then, ultimately, be resolved. However, if you're looking for the espionage or "out there", darker portion of romantic suspense, this book may not be for you as that's not where the anticipation comes from. Without giving too much away . . . Zoe Santangelo has a PhD in geology (specializing in hydrogeology) that has come to the small town of Paradise, Idaho to start her journey to becoming a tenured professor at one of the predominant research universities in the field. Like many others with similar aspirations, Zoe starts at the bottom of ladder at a smaller institution, eager to work her way up. She loves her field, teaching at the university, and working with students but knows that she'll be moving on as soon as she can. Cal Jackson is a former NFL football player who has come home to run the family farm after his career is ended by an injury. He loves what he does, his family and the town but is possibly looking for more as well. The two meet and interact as a result of their relationship to the university. The story chronicles their struggles, both individually and as a couple, as well as a campus situation that has everyone concerned for the safety of students and Dr. Santangelo. Both characters have their own issues that results in sort of power struggle that they need to work through that ultimately affect their relationship. The pair are very likable and believable. Zoe is highly intelligent yet down to earth, and very independent, yet unsure of herself. Cal is self-assured, a bit of a control freak and almost cocky--but in a way that endears him to the reader. Their interactions run the gamut of witty, sexy, exasperating, confusing, frustrating, intense, and tender. Since this is also a romance, it doesn't hurt that things get a bit steamy occasionally. Overall, there is just the right balance the romance and suspense. Don't expect a wimpy heroine that needs rescuing--that's what gets Cal into trouble.

    The performance? Sends a great story right into the stratosphere! I wasn't too sure of how I was going to like a male and female narrator interacting within same chapter. (I love Kristen Proby's "With Me" series that has a male and female narrator but they trade chapters because that's how the books are laid out--male vs. female perspective.) I have to say the narration TOTALLY WORKED and enhanced the performance. Natalie Ross was new to me and she does an outstanding job of getting Zoe "right". Tone, pace, inflection and emotion for each segment are spot on and really bring Zoe to life. Phil Gigante knocked it totally out of the park with Cal. He gets the "good ol' boy" persona right while making him real (as well as swoonworthy). Combined, the dual narration really works in all the different situations and brings out the emotions for each section. Can't wait for Hold Me Close to be released in print and audio. It'll be a great story and if it's narrated like Carry Me Home, it's already a winner.

    Any additional comments?

    You cannot miss this Audible book. I loved the book in print (you can catch the plot in the book description). But what the description won't give you is how wonderfully the interaction between the characters is performed by Phil and Natalie. I laughed at times, teared up at times, and got really nervous (even though I knew how the book ends!).

    Between Rosalind's words and the narrators' performances you'll be entranced and entertained and will want to tell your friends! Be careful if you're driving and listening at the same time because laughing out loud could be a side effect of hearing this book.

    "Great summer romance read!!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Carry Me Home to be better than the print version?

    Over the top!!! Wonderful!!!!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Their was wonderful woman strong woman, caring sexy hot steamy man, and your Gillian. Many twists and turns!


    Have you listened to any of Phil Gigante and Natalie Ross ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was my first and look forward to listening to more!!M


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    All emotions wrapped up in 11 hours!!!


    Any additional comments?

    I'm a huge reader of Rosalind James, this book was very different then her NewZealand series, in a good way. My self I wanted to see how she could write out of her comfort zone,away from her country and culture!

    SHE NAILED IT, Zoe drive to be what her father wants and what her driver goals are, or are they?
    ,Cal returning to his roots to help with Family issues,bringing with him the hot steamy love,what more do we want. I hate to give spoilers away,so at first I try to keep my reviews in a box!
    Rosalind James gave us a lot of turns and not to be expected!

    Rosalind gave us a strong woman who refused to give in, which we don't see so often in books,but she showed a woman can Gand,e be strong and sexy.
    there can't be a great book with out a twisted ass who is the E in evil!!! But as the love grows between Cal and Zoe, it will having you yell omgosh if I turn this page and....... I'll scream. Def parts your found at the edge of your seat! All the while the love is slow, hot and gets your pulse racing! She does steamy,very classy,and enjoyable read!!!

    I'm telling you she is giving a strong run for the big Authors, her writing is not predictable but rather new fresh writing that I have not seen you in a writer in a very long time.

    Enjoy the summer read with Cal and Zoe, she leaves you wanting more I love seeing the number one after her title which means there must be a second book. Or let's hope/ praying there is a second book.

    This book was not her first American series book, but being from a different culture a different country she pulled off the American way amazingly I don't mean that with any disrespect and I apologize if taken the wrong way. This book just brought the spark, the villain, the happy ever after.

    Well worth the read! I'm finding I want more of her books. I will wait three weeks and give a deeper,review as not to spoil readers page turner!

    "Great Romantic Suspense"

    I enjoyed this book. It is a definitely change from Rosalind James’ usual stories. I have read all of her Escape to New Zealand series and loved them. This book was different. What I love about Ms. James’ writing is that it is always fresh. She doesn’t get stuck reusing the same phrases over and over again.

    I like that this audiobook had a male and female narrator which makes the story much nicer to listen to. She has created unique characters. Her male lead, Cal, is the guy most women want, kind, loving, masculinity that won’t quit. The narrator did a wonderful job with his voice. The female lead, Zoe, is a little less likeable to me but still the story worked.

    This book was a romantic suspense –and she blended the two very well. I am looking forward to more in this series.

    "Bad book.. Super narration.."
    Any additional comments?

    I have to say that the first 50 or 60 pages were pretty damn boring and I was tempted to stop reading but I decided to push forward to see what was going to happen, wanted to see who the stalker was.

    Another thing that really bothered me was that a couple reviewers mentioned the “hot sex.” What they neglected to tell you was that there was nothing that led up to it, except for about two or three innuendos on Cal’s part, over a period of time. There was no desire, no lust, no thoughts of wanting, nothing. They didn’t even kiss until page 216. So, as far as I’m concerned, that doesn’t make for hot sex. Hot sex starts at the first meeting with thoughts and desire and continues until they finally get at it. What really happened sounds like a publisher who wanted sex in the book so the author just threw in a few pages again and again during the last hundred or so pages.

    There was so much going on AND not going on with Cal and Zoe. So much dragging it out. This could have been a 250 page book and it might have been good but, as it was, it was just too long. It was about a stalker but the stalker wasn’t in it near enough. I like romance/suspense but this was just too much romance that wasn’t really a romance, rather sex that wasn’t even interesting. Anyway, they had sex, with nothing leading up to it, at her house, then more boring stuff, then sex in her office. Now, I like dialogue in my books but he just kept talking about what he would do to her, just page after page after page of boring sex talk. Get to the story, already.

    And Zoe’s father was really cray-cray. Geez, he wanted her to freeze her eggs so she could keep working and get somewhere in her career? Really? And she didn’t have the balls to ask him if he was out of his freaking mind? She had to listen to that kind of crap because she needed to borrow $300. When it came to her father she had no backbone whatsoever.

    I did loved his brother Luke, his and Cal’s banter was amazing and funny. And I liked Deke a lot, too. I liked his Mom and Dad, Raylene and Stan. And I absolutely hated his cousin Greg, what a jerk. And I was only a little surprised at who the stalker/rapist was. Although he never really raped anyone cuz the girls kept beating the hell out of him or scaring him off with a shotgun.

    As to the narration: I have to tell you that I think this new way of two narrators working together is just awesome. It's like they're having a conversation instead of first one reading a chapter or two then the other taking over. I mean, it's simply wonderful. And Phil Gigante and Natalie Ross are two of my favorite narrators, which made it even better. I think if it hadn't been for their narration I would have given up on this book instead of finishing it.

    "Dual Narration like a Radio show!!! Love it!!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes.


    What does Phil Gigante and Natalie Ross bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    This dual narration is what I've been waiting for! They read the story TOGETHER. I've listened to a few books with dual narration but each POV is separate. So the voices of the main characters are constantly changing with each narrator. It's very annoying. This however is what I've been earning for in a dual narration: more like a radio show.
