  1. LilMissMolly

    I’m a huge historical romance fan, and Mary Jane Wells is one of my favorite narrators. It’s so nice to see this genre recognized in this category. Hopefully Mary Jane’s talents will be rewarded!

  2. Loved Gimme Some Sugar – always enjoy Amanda Ronconi. I haven’t read the others yet, but I enjoy Lauren Blakely and Sebastian York is a great narrator.

  3. Thanks for including Nevertheless We Persisted #MeToo, Felicia. The boo was a labor of love from all but especially Tanya Eby (Blunderwoman Productions), of course.
