War Hayes spent his childhood being looked down on because of who his Dad was. As a teenager, War joins the family business, having a little too much fun being bad. Right before his eighteenth birthday, he’s arrested. The judge must see something in War and gives him an ultimatum. Either War joins the military and leaves Jefferson County or he goes to prison.
After ten years, War comes home from the military. He’s a changed man, at least that’s what he’s been telling himself. He’s only here to say goodbye to his family and get out of Jefferson County for good. Then he sees her and all bets are off. She’s the angel he’s been waiting on and he won’t be leaving until she’s his.
Magnolia King just came home from her first year away at college. She is no longer that awkward girl who left here ten months ago. When he stops in to grab breakfast from the local diner, he sits in her section. He is the sexiest man she has ever seen and he won’t take no for an answer. He’s older and isn’t someone her parents would approve of, not with his rugged attitude and tattoos. There’s something different about him that draws her in.
After a couple of weeks and the best night of their lives, everything Magnolia’s ever wanted is taken from her and she knows who’s to blame. When War is sentenced to seven years in prison she’s devastated. When she finds out she’s carrying his child she has no idea what she’ll do. When War is released early from prison, Magnolia is there to tell him something he doesn’t know. Something that might make him hate her. One way or another she’s Bringing Daddy Home.

Taron “Knuckles” Brown, has always lived a lonely existence,
One which he prefers.
Retired Special Forces.
An unattached Nomad.
No responsibilities or women to weigh him down.
All is well until he comes across Dyanara Reyes,
A Bloody Scorpions Princess who has been locked up in her tower,
Pure and innocent and searching for a Knight.
But there is no shiny armor aligning this man’s shoulders.
Pain leaves scars unseen
And the past may be too harrowing to forget.
Being the Sargent at Arms for the Royal Bastards MC comes at a price.
Freedom is no longer an option.
Finding something to live for
Becomes the first step toward redemption.
And where unexpected love is concerned,
There are no chains strong enough to restrain it.
Scarred By Pain is Knuckles’ story, the second book in the New Orleans National Chapter. Inked In Vengeance is the first.

Q&A with Author Tricia Copeland
- Tell us about the process of turning your book into an audiobook.
- I search for two years to find the right narrator for this story. Frustrated, I’d almost given up. Last fall at a book con, Amy stopped by my table and introduced herself. I spoke with her for a few minutes and afterwards looked up her work. I loved what I heard and contacted her immediately to talk about starting the narration. After the gave her the manuscript and character list, she sent me a six minute clip. I was hooked! I wanted more! I loved listening to my words come to live. I also thrive on learning new things so while daunting, I feel so empowered by all I’m learning about the audiobook industry.
- Was a possible audiobook recording something you were conscious of while writing?
- In the future I think I will be more conscious of names and pronunciations. I will be more clear on how a name is pronounced to ensure ease of transition between ebook or paper copies and the audio versions.
- How closely did you work with your narrator before and during the recording process? Did you give them any pronunciation tips or special insight into the characters?
- My narrator read the manuscript and gave me a list of questions. I also provided her with a character bio sheet with a bit of history as to age, ethnicity, gender, etc. of my characters.
- How do you manage to avoid burn-out? What do you do to maintain your enthusiasm for writing?
- Interacting with readers and authors keep me excited and motivated. I love chatting about books, characters, plot, and hearing feedback and future ideas for my work.
- Are you an audiobook listener? What about the audiobook format appeals to you?
- I love that I can listen to an audiobook almost anywhere. Listening to books and podcasts helps me get through mundane chores like laundry and cleaning, dishes and cooking.
- What do you say to those who view listening to audiobooks as “cheating” or as inferior to “real reading”?
- I don’t feel like audiobooks are cheating at all. I love the technology because I can listen in the car, on a run, or while doing chores.
- In your opinion, what are the pros and cons of writing a stand-alone novel vs. writing a series?
- I love both stand alones and series. I try to wrap up each of my series books so it can act as a stand alone as well as add a little bit of a OMG, what’s next! If I fall in love with characters and a storyline it’s hard to let them go. I’m always sad when I finish writing a book because I miss my characters.
- What’s your favorite:
- Food – pizza
- Song – there are so many, anything with a good beat and inspiring lyrics keeps me grooving
- Book – Twilight, Cassandra Clare, Kristin & P.C. Cast, The Crystal Cave, Gone with the Wind, I love paranormal fantasy, light sci-fi, and dystopian, and when I’m feeling tired a good sweet romance
- Television show – The Vampire Diaries, Reign, The Originals, iZombie
- Movie – love rom com The Holiday, Love Actually, Twilight movies
- Band – Bastille, The Fray, Imagine Dragons, Twenty-One Pilots
- Sports team – not a huge sports fan but always go back to my roots, GT Jackets
- City – Wow! Hard one – I loved NYC when I visited with friends and plan on visiting New Orleans this year, love Savannah, and Denver
I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Tricia Copeland. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.
This book is so good! I reread the first one before reading this! It was good as well! It’s intriguing that Ivy is the main character in this one. I wonder if Hunter will be the main character of the third!

Length: 6 hours 54 minutes
Publisher: Aidée James

Genre: Erotic Romance
No one dominates me. Not the supermodels I’ve slept with, not the rich women whose necks I’ve dressed in diamonds. So, imagine my surprise when I get a drunken e-mail from an employee I’ve never met, containing not one, but dozens of erotic stories, all starring yours truly. And in every one of them, I’m a submissive. I should let it go, but I can’t. This woman needs to learn that John King gets spanked by no one.
When Mexican-American author Aidèe Jaimes isn’t chasing after her energetic daughter and spending time with her happily ever after husband in their Florida home, she’s living other lives through her characters. As her writing evolved into darker, sexier, no holds-barred stories, she transitioned from the pen name Haden Hudson, to the author she is today!
Q&A with Narrator Ada Sinclair
- When did you know you wanted to be an audiobook narrator?
- I’ve been acting for over 20 years professionally and working all sorts of day jobs in between. While doing a show three years ago, a friend of mine announced he had quit all his other part-time work and was exclusively getting paid to act and narrate. I was so intrigued I immediately started YouTubing and researching everything I could about it. I got some professional coaching, created a recording booth out of my closet in our spare bedroom, and haven’t looked back since.
- How did you wind up narrating audiobooks? Was it always your goal or was it something you stumbled into by chance?
- Once I started researching narration, things like story arc, multiple character development, timing, and breath control all fit the bill for the numerous classes and workshops I had been going to as an actor. It seemed like everything I had been learning could be applied to books. Plus, I LOVED to read and was insatiable when it came to consuming stories. It was an absolutely perfect fit.
- Did you find it difficult to break into” audiobook narration? What skill/tool helped you the most when getting started?
- The hardest part for me was learning the technical aspects of audio. How to best use the microphone, record and re-record so everything is seamless and do it for hours on end. There was definitely a learning curve and I wouldn’t have been able to do it without some juggernauts in the community like Don Baarns. Now I’m really well versed in not only recording but also editing and mastering and I have him to thank.
- A lot of narrators seem to have a background in theatre. Is that something you think is essential to a successful narration career?
- I definitely think that my background has helped me. In school, we studied things like pacing and how alliteration and other word choices can clue you into the personalities and traits of a character. We delved very deeply into actions, motivations, and power struggles in various characters and I use all of it daily in my craft. I do think you can learn all of those things through coaching strictly for narration, but it helps me that I already have a foundation and years of experience to draw from.
- What type of training have you undergone?
- I began singing in choirs and doing solos when I was 6. I started taking acting classes when I was 12 and went to college for acting at Florida State University and went on to study musical theater performance in New York at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy. I lived and acted in New York for 5 years before settling in Chicago with my husband and going through iO’s improv conservatory in the process. I’m currently a part of two professional theater companies here in Chicago and perform several times a year.
- How do you manage to avoid burn-out? What do you do to maintain your enthusiasm for narrating?
- I truly enjoy the performance aspect of recording, so it’s not hard to get me into the booth. To avoid burnout for stories or genres that might be a little more difficult for me, I tend to keep myself on a schedule to record 1 to 2 finished hours several days a week, making sure to leave in vocal rest days and times to decompress. It’s the ideal, and sometimes I’ve been caught recording for hours on end to make a deadline, but overall it’s a strategy and balance that really works for me.
- Are you an audiobook listener? What about the audiobook format appeals to you?
- Prior to narration, I hadn’t listened to many audiobooks. I didn’t particularly like the first few I had tried (I thought the voices in my own head made better choices, lol) but after starting on my own journey, I found some incredible narrators that I go back to again and again. I love listening to audiobooks while I’m driving and tend to like narrative stories then. For mundane tasks like laundry and/or cleaning, I’ll go for motivational self-help books.
- What are your favorite and least favorite parts of narrating an audiobook?
- My favorite part has to be when I find each character’s voice and have them “checked in.” It’s a little like body switching when they are in a conversation, but if I can channel them both then it gets really fun to do arguments or flirty conversations. It’s like playing chess with yourself. My least favorite thing is definitely the pick ups. I am slightly dyslexic and often have small flubs like switched words. It makes it a process for both me and my very gracious proofer.
- What would you say are your strongest narration abilities?
- I’ve been told that I can really embody the characters and create very distinctive voices. I tend to use a lot of variance in my vocal performance. My goal is always to allow the listener to recognize who is speaking without them having to be announced.
- Is there a particular genre you feel unsuited for? Have you ever declined a project because you didn’t think you were right for it?
- I love narrating in quite a few genres. But I did turn down a book after I found out that the main character was African American and had a very distinct dialect. I love stretching myself as an actor, but I also believe that there are many other people better suited to tell stories with main characters that are people of color, and I believe they should be the ones cast.

Genre: Young Adult, Science Fiction
An overachiever enrolls in an experimental clone study to prove that two (of her own) heads are better than one in this fast-paced, near-future adventure that’s Black Mirror meets Becky Albertalli.
There aren’t enough hours in the day for Lucille–perfectionist, overachiever–to do everything she has to do, and there certainly aren’t enough hours to hang out with friends, fall in love, get in trouble–all the teenage things she knows she should want to be doing instead of preparing for a flawless future. So when she sees an ad for Life2: Do more. Be more, she’s intrigued.
The company is looking for beta testers to enroll in an experimental clone program, and in the aftermath of a series of disappointments, Lucille is feeling reckless enough to jump in. At first, it’s perfect: her clone, Lucy, is exactly what she needed to make her life manageable and have time for a social life. But it doesn’t take long for Lucy to become more Lucy and less Lucille, and Lucille is forced to stop looking at Lucy as a reflection and start seeing her as a window–a glimpse at someone else living her own life, but better. Lucy does what she really wants to, not what she thinks she should want to, and Lucille is left wondering how much she was even a part of the perfect life she’d constructed for herself. Lucille wanted Lucy to help her relationships with everyone else, but how can she do that without first rectifying her relationship with herself?
Lillian Clark, a graduate of the University of Wyoming, grew up riding horses, climbing trees, and going on grand imaginary adventures in the small-town West. She’s worked as a lifeguard, a camp counselor, and a Zamboni driver, but found her eternal love working as a bookseller at an independent bookstore. Now living in Teton Valley, Idaho with her husband, son, and two giant dogs, she spends her time reading almost anything and writing books for teens.
