I received these audiobooks as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by London Saint James. The gifting of these audiobooks did not affect my opinion of them.

From international best-selling author London Saint James comes the final installment of Two Hearts, One Soul, a breathtaking story of two people who have always been connected, forever tied together by fate, by destiny, by unbreakable love.
With the media hell-bent on exposing Winter’s once private life, Cayden will do anything to protect her. But there’s more than just the voracious paparazzi conspiring against them.
Involved in an unprecedented web of strange events, and wound in a string of lies about to break with devastating consequences, Winter must battle ghosts from her past that threaten to harm the man she loves.
Faced with a choice she always knew would be inevitable, and a secret of her own, can the fairy tale Winter’s been living with Cayden beat the odds of their reality and really come true?
Please note: This audiobook continues where book one left off. This duet must be listened to in order.
London Saint James has lived in many places, but never felt “at home” until she met the real-life man of her dreams and settled down in the beautiful Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. London lives with her husband and their fat cat who thinks he owns them.
As an award-winning, international bestselling author, London is living her childhood dream. She knew all the scribbling she did, that big imagination of hers, and all those clamoring characters running around in her head would pay off someday.
Tor Thom and Charley Ongel are a happily married couple who have been narrating and producing audiobooks for the past year and a half.
I was so glad that Mr. Thom and Ms. Ongel continued as our narrators. They continued to bring Ms. Saint James' characters to life. Just like in the first book, there are sound effects - still not used to hearing them but luckily we don't hear them all the time. But not expecting them, even though I know they would pop up somewhere, there were times that I jumped out of my skin - luckily I was by myself at the time.
Winter shows us what she's willing to do for her love. Sometimes hard choices are made but it's tougher for those that live with their lives constantly in the public eye. Just like the first book, I had a moment where I might have had a tear in the corner of my eye. Having just the right narrators helps when you're having one of those moments. They help you play the story out in your mind. There were a couple of secondary characters that left me wondering if I will get to see their stories. Following the author will answer that one.
This is part two of a duet and that should tell you not to start here. It would be like reading the ending of a book first. I wish I had the time to listen to these one after the other but it's just not possible so I did listen as long as I could before life got in my way. I have a short list of those audiobooks that I would listen to again and it just got a little longer by two books.
I had one frustration that started with this book though. I don't know if it was the audiobook or if it was my iPod. At times it sounded tinny and it was very frustrating. It only happened, or at least when I noticed it, when Ms. Ongel spoke. I felt bad for both Ms. Saint James and Ms. Ongel because I found myself focusing on the sound rather than the words being spoken - another good reason to go back and listen to the duet again. It was a pleasure listening on my to and from work as well as working out in the yard.
