I love books and love to get lost in the fantasy. I'm always looking for a new good story to bury myself in. :)

    Story

    4-4.5 stars

    This was a very good story. I've read the rest of the series and this was a great addition. Jake is actually Stephano Jacob Colson Notte (but goes by name Jake Colson) who was changed by Vincent Argeneau to save his life in A Bite to Remember. He didn't take his change in circumstances well and I was happy to see his story and him coming to terms with everything.

    Nicole is a portraitist and a good woman. She's just getting out of a bad marriage to a man who was just trying to fleece her for her money. Nicole is related to Marguerite Argeneau's maid and has know Marguerite for many years. When she has troubles during her divorce, Marguerite thinks her soon to be Ex is trying to kill her off before the divorce to get her money but Nicole doesn't believe it.

    It's been 7 years since Jake was turned in to a Vampire to save him from sure death. He never wanted to be a Vampire (most of his family are and he had decided not to be changed) so when he finds himself a changed anyways he freaks and leaves everything behind. He ends up in a job doing personal security and is stewing in his life but not really making any progress when he is contacted by Marguerite asking for a favor. She explains about the issues Nicole is having and asks Jake to protect her by acting as her maid/cook for 2 weeks until the divorce is final and he agrees.

    Marguerite introduces Nicole and Jake and he starts the job for a 2-week trial and Marguerite leaves soon after. Jake and Nicole start to get to know each other and soon after, Jake realizes he can't read Nicole and she's probably his lifemate. He realizes that he hasn't really accepted or moved on with his life as it is now and now his lifemate is here he has to get things together soon. A couple of issues show up that seem to confirm that someone is attempting to kill Nicole. When Jake is made sick by one of these attempts, Nicole has to call Marguerite and his family, who come to help. The attempt ends up bringing Jake's differences to light and he's forced to tell her what he is and hope she'll accept it all without freaking. This actually helps Jake, because in explaining it to Nicole, he realizes just how faulty his own prejudices are and is able to put them to rest.

    Thankfully, because of her long friendship with Marguerite and her growing feelings for Jake, Nicole is accepting of Jake and his family's Vampire status. She also learns about lifemates and is sure she's not ready for a new relationship (especially with as fast as it all seems to be going) but she does decide to give Jake a chance. There is more danger as the attempts escalate but they find the person behind the attempts isn't her soon to be Ex after all. Then everyone is left scrambling, trying to find the true villain. When the villain shows up in the end, I was surprised to find out who it was. With a little bit of creativity, the villain is dispatched and the danger is ended and Jake and Nicole head in to a satisfying HEA that left me smiling.

    I really liked this story. Jake and Nicole are great and I was happy to see them get together. The story was interesting and kept me engaged throughout. The secondary characters are (as always) great. This was a great addition to the series. I'd recommend this. Thumbs up! :D

    When Nicole Phillips agreed to hire a housekeeper, she pictured someone a little frumpy and almost certainly female. Instead, she gets gorgeous, unmistakably male Jake Colson. The man is proving indispensable in the kitchen - and everywhere else. Except Jake might not be a mortal man at all. Who wouldn't want to be a tall, dark, powerful vampire? Jake, for one. He's barely had time to adjust to his new state before he's roped into a family favor.

    Story

    This was a really good story. I've read the previous books in the series and love the series. While this isn't my favorite book in the series (Fate's Edge was my fave) it was extremely enjoyable and I'm really glad I read it.

    Charlotte is pretty cool. She's a healer that goes to live in the Edge after a problem marriage. She's happy there until an encounter with slavers destroys her life and makes her vow to take the slavers down. During this time she meets Richard. He's on a mission to take down the slavers and she convinces him to let her help him on his mission.

    Richard is a pretty good hero. He's been in the previous books but I never thought "Oh wow, Richard's so cool he should have his own book"...regardless of this, now that I've read it, I'm so happy that he did get his own book! For a number of reasons Richard decided to take on the slavers and take them out. When he meets Charlotte he doesn't want to take her with him because of what the fight against the slavers will do to her but she gives him no choice.

    Richard is attracted to Charlotte but considers himself a monster for what he has to do to take care of the slavers so he doesn't think there's any way she'd want him in return. The funny thing is that she feels the same. She is very attracted to Richard but feels she's an abomination for how she's using her magic against the slavers and feels unworthy of Richard. Fortunately they eventually realize the mutual attraction and succumb to it. This does make their mission harder though because now they have something to lose and aren't as eager to risk each other. It's good to see their feelings grow for each other. It felt like they both needed to indulge in their feeling for each other to keep themselves from getting buried in the darkness (emotional darkness) that surrounded them. And those feelings ended up being their salvation later in the story.

    The story is fast paced and pretty interesting. Charlotte and Richard are constantly on the move trying to accomplish what they need to. I loved seeing most of the characters from previous books in the story as well and some of the old story lines getting completed (so to speak).

    Overall this was a really good story. I really enjoyed it and thought it was a great addition to the series. I hope there's more of the series because it's so good I'd hate to have it end. Ilona Andrews is a great writer and I'd recommend this book and the whole series. I'd buy them all again without hesitation. :D

    The Edge lies between worlds, on the border between the Broken, where people shop at Wal-Mart and magic is a fairy tale—and the Weird, where blueblood aristocrats rule, changelings roam, and the strength of your magic can change your destiny…Charlotte de Ney is as noble as they come, a blueblood straight out of the Weird. But even though she possesses rare magical healing abilities, her life has brought her nothing but pain.

    Christmas Pride by Shelly Laurenston

    4 stars

    This was a pretty good story. I’ve read some stories by Shelly Laurenston but never tried this series before. I like it so far.

    Dez grew up in the Bronx and because a police detective. She’s tough and doesn’t take any crap and loves her job. Unfortunately she has issues with men not being able to accept her or her job. She tends to avoid dating and when she meets back up with Mace again (after not seeing each other since they were 14 years old) she tries to keep her distance from him, thinking he only wants one thing.

    Mace is a Lion shifter. He was a runt when he was younger and still loved Dez, the girl who always accepted him as he was. He was in the Navy for years but as soon as he gets out of the service he looks Dez up. He’s determined to get in to her life and make her part of his in a very permanent way. Unfortunately this is difficult since she won’t give him a chance and is constantly pushing him away.

    There is a plot line that brings Dez in to the shifter world to an extent, when a Pride male is killed and she’s investigating it. It makes things interesting and brings things out pretty quickly. When things become too hard to explain, Mace ends up having to entrust her with his secret faster than planned to, knowing that if he lied to her he’d end up paying for it in the end. I was happy with how well she handled the shifter issue. TBH, she had more problems with Mace trying to get seriously involved with her than she did with him being a shifter…an interesting problem to have…

    I liked Mace and Dez’s story and liked seeing them together. I will admit that Dez being determined that Mace was only looking for sex (without any actual knowledge to back it up) and always pushing him away was a bit annoying a times (and funny at others). It did become gratifying thought, to see Dez gradually slack up on her defenses and letting Mace in little by little, even while she’s still protesting. I really liked Maces’ relationship with his Wolf pack buddies and there were some interesting secondary characters that look like they will be fun to see more of in future stories.

    Overall this was a pretty good story and was an enjoyable read.

    Shaw's Tail

    4-4.5 stars

    This was a very good story as well. I liked Ronnie Lee and Brendon as a couple. The story wasn't action packed but it was a fun but sexy story that I really enjoyed.

    Ronnie Lee Reed is a wolf shifter. She's always been a wild child (she has trouble with schedules and restrictions) and hates being tied down. She's just moved to town with her pack and has decided it's time to straighten out her life. She gets off track when she gets involved with a lion shifter in trouble.

    Brendon Shaw is a lion shifter (we meet him briefly in the previous story). I like Brendon a lot. He's a good guy and surprisingly fun and is able to be sneaky when needed. He gets himself in a jam that Ronnie's pack helps him out of. Ronnie gets volunteered to stay with Brendon while he has a fever and when he gets a whiff of Ronnie he wants her immediately. Since he's sick he doesn't get very far and once he's recovered she's gone. He didn't even get her name but he's determined to find her and she ends up closer than he imagined.

    Regardless of Ronnie's decision to settle down, she's not real anxious to do it with Brendon and makes things difficult for him as he tries to woo her. It's not that she doesn't like him because she does (a lot), but he's a different breed (apparently this can cause issues for the children) and regardless of her feeling she should settle down, she's afraid of being trapped. Brendon realizes her reluctance and is rather sneaky in getting her to stick around long enough to realize he's her one (like he's already realized she's his one). I really liked seeing their interactions, sometime they were very humorous (parts had me laughing) and there were parts that were sweet as we see the emotions growing.

    Overall this was a sweet, humorous and sexy story that I really enjoyed. The characters were great and I look forward to seeing more of the secondary characters get their own books. I'll definitely be continuing the series. I'd recommend this book. :D

    Story

    Once again, Ms. Wright had my laughing so hard at work; I got questioning looks from my co workers. This book is hilarious. Jamie doesn’t have as big of a potty mouth as Taryn but that doesn’t make her any less funny. I like Jamie’s strength and courage and her struggles throughout the book, and Dante, WOW!!! He makes me wish to be wolf-shifter.

    I love Jill Redfield as a narrator. She always gives the performance that little extra. Such as when a line says the character laughed, she actually says the line laughing. It’s that little extra that makes her reading very enjoyable.

    *****This might be a spoiler, but if you read the first book you should be expecting this. The funniest scene in the book was when Taryn went into labor. I literally cried, I was laughing so hard. Thank you Ms. Wright.

    Story

    I wasn’t really sure if I wanted to purchase this book because of Ecstasy, the book before this in the series. It wasn’t that I didn’t like Ecstasy; it just dragged in places and didn’t get really good until half way through the book. But Rapture, ohh Rapture was excellent from the beginning. Daenaira is a strong, loyal, dedicated heroine that fights for everything that is right and just. Magnus is everything that I want my dominant men to be in a romance, strong, passionate, and willing to be vulnerable to their counterparts. The sex scenes in this book are tender and erotic at just the right moments, especially the first time Daenaira and Magnus came together. That scene was almost heartbreakingly beautiful to me. Love Love Loved it!!!!

    My girl Kristen, as always did a fantastic job. She is definitely in my top five of favorite narrators.

    Story

    Triton, a bad boy Greek God, is punished by Zeus for sleeping with Zeus’ mistress. His punishment, he is exiled to Earth to find a mortal woman that will love him for him and not his good looks that make all the girls go OWWWW!!!! Sophie is a mortal that is trying to open a B&B in the midst of financial problems, a seedy contractor, and a deceiving cousin, oh, did I mention she has recently had a horrible accident that has render her mostly blind. Triton sees this as the perfect opportunity to woo Sophia because she is blind and she won’t be able to judge him based on his looks.

    I decided to listen to this book because I adore Tina’s Scanguard Vampires series. Although the storyline is predictable, its redeeming quality is the interaction between Triton, Dionysus, Hermes and Eros. Tina has the ability to write a story that delivers humor and witty comebacks that causes the reader/listener to smile or laugh while they are listening to the story. The fours gods were hilarious and offer a nice shake up throughout the story. I also thought Sophia’s best friend was funny as well. As always, Tina writes some steamy, hot romance scenes. Seriously be careful, they might melt your headphones.

    Eric did a great job with the narration. Unlike some male narration, they have a tendency to make the female voices shrill and too high. Eric did a nice balance with the female voice, making them feminine without high shrill. His narration for Triton curled my toes, yumm!!

    Worth a credit, sure. The story is enjoyable and the characters are quite likable if not just a bit predictable.

    Story

    I enjoyed reading this book. I first picked it up because I really liked the first Scanguard Vampires series, Samson's Lovely Mortal. So when I notice this book was finally on audible and I jumped at the chance to read it. Amuary is a vampire that has a gift or you could say curse. He is forced to feel everyones emotions except love. He is unable to feel love for anybody. The only thing that can briefly alleviate this misery is sex. So he constantly has sex to help with the pain from his gift/curse. Nina is a street smart human, determine to find out what really happened to her brother that made him commit suicide. She begins looking into his death and she finds her way to Scanguard, the security agency Amuary works for. Upon their first meeting, the attraction between them is electrifying. Neither one can resist what is happening even though they both know it's a bad bad idea. So begins the story...

    There are several things I enjoyed about this book. First Tina, writes some hot sex scenes. Truly they can melt your headphones. Second, the narrator, Kevin, does a superb job with the male voices. His voice is a deep rich luscious sound. Third, the book captivates you from the first line until the end. Usually books of this nature take awhile before you can actually get interested but Tina write characters that are intriguing and relatable.

    The only thing that I didn't like about this book. With many male narrators, Kevin does a bad job of imitating a woman's voice. They are shrill and have the tendency to sound like a outraged teenager. Not the strong lead female characters they are suppose to be. If you can get pass this, the book is really worth a read. Worth a credit, yes, yes it is.

I like Jack Reacher style characters regardless of setting. Put them in outer space, in modern America, in a military setting, on an alien planet... no worries. Book has non moralistic vigilante-justice? Sign me up! (oh, I read urban fantasy, soft and hard sci-fi, trashy vampire and zombie novels too)

  • "Don't tell anyone that I liked it..."

    112 of 130 helpful votes

    I bought this audiobook because it was in the sci/fi fantasy category. The write up claims it has "a dash of time travel" - and that's all it has in the way of fantasy/time travel - a dash.

    Time travel is used as a way to launch a HISTORICAL ROMANCE. And, ultimately, this is exactly what it is: a very detailed romance novel set in 18th century Scotland.

    Keeping that in mind: it is VERY well done. The narration is terrific and the story engaging (though I did use the fast forward several times to get through the long descriptions of clan family lines, or details of the clothing/housing/etc of the time).

    I don't like romances and I don't like historical fiction so I thought the two together would mean I had wasted my credit. Not so. Even though it's as far from my usual listening choices (sci/fi or cop/detective stuff) as it could be, the story flew by: I caught myself smiling at events in the story pretty regularly.

    Assuming a starting point of 3 stars for an average story, I added one star for the narration (which brings the story to life) and a second star for making me smile in public. I took off a half star for requiring me to fast forward some of the descriptions = 4.5 star story. So I give it 5 stars because 4.5 is not possible. (I did buy the next book in the series too.)

    Remember though, this is a romantic novel with some/lots of sex (though having made it through the sex scenes in Altered Carbon, this is pretty "romantic" sex) - so if you're looking for sci/fi or fantasy, you will be disappointed in this.

    Otherwise... if you're not the romantic type but, like me, stumble onto this story by accident only to find that you like it - don't worry, we won't tell anyone...

    Jamie Fraser knows from his time-traveling wife Claire that, no matter how unlikely it seems, America will win the Revolutionary War.
