    Story

    Well, can you really call Harcos men aliens? IDK! They are just really big humanoid males... but let me tell you! This book GRABBED me at like the first chapter!

    Hallie, getting ready to run for her freedom in the Grab, gets collared by a big Harcos warrior or "Sky Warrior", and is then taken aboard the spaceship which orbits Hallie's planet.

    The Grab is a run where Harcos men get to keep the women they grab. They have to earn points to enter the grab, by doing missions. The point of the grab is for these Harcos men to be rewarded for their services to the Harcos army, and the earth women they grab become their wife, property or reward (whatever you want to call it.) Harcos men are used to a BDSM type lifestyle so the women they grab are collared. Any woman who takes off the collar or is seen 30 days after they are grabbed can be grabbed by someone else.


    It sounds crazy but boy this book was a treat! It was so good, and totally made sense. The action, drama and hot SMEXYNESS made this book an awesome listen!

    Narration was great. Shift in character's voices was seamless! Great.

    This is worth a credit or sale.. maybe a buy if you just don't have a credit... under 15 bucks...but worth it...

    Hallie has never run so fast in her life. One of the frightening sky warriors from the warship Valiant is hot on her heels and intent on capturing her as his bride. He takes her down, places his collar around her neck. With one word, he claims her. Mine. Born and bred for the military, Vicious has spent years rising through the ranks. Hallie is his reward, the beautiful sprite ensnaring him with a glance. Despite her fear of Vicious, Hallie surrenders under his skillful hands and mouth.

    Man! This was so good. Such a romantic love story... what have I been missing with Tina Folsom... this was my first Folsom book... but not my last... I just went and added the entire series to my wish list!

    I am so picky about my vampire books that I usually pass up on vampire paranormal romance... Only two authors ( Ward and Frost) seem to do my kind of vamps... Folsom makes three...

    The drama, action and smex was all perfect.... Loved Eddie.... the action was not edge of ur seat... but steady throughout the entire story... and the interwoven romance between Thomas and Eddie was done so well...

    I must say... since I am a m/m romance fan... usually in a practicality m/f romance series when there is a m/m couple the author will tone down the smex during that book... but Folsom did an awesome job... if this was tone... then I will most definitely go back and read/listen to the others!!!

    Narration was great too... I didn't like my first Dove narration...but he is awesome in this book..

    So worth buy, credit or sale....

    Man, this was sooo good. I read the reviews and alot of people are saying this was not as good as the other books... Are we listening to the same book here? This was amazing... Raphel and his Consort are the bomb!

    I really want Raphel's mom to get into the action... I bet she is super strong now, especially since she isn't crazy anymore...

    We all know Raphel is the only angel born of two Arch Angels and now he is a Arch Angel and a member of the Cadre... so up... Raphel gonna be a force to recon with.

    This book answered alot of question left unanswered from the previous books... without add more questions into the (What the heck is going on) mix...

    On to the next book.. Please let us get to see that Legion in action.. I hope some one of them become apart of the 7. And Elana has her own Guard now... Crazy... that is awesome...

    This series just gets better and better... More sophicated and detailed in its plot twist and turns. AWESOME.

    Narration was great, simply great... Justine Eyre is one of the best.

    Great Credit... or Sale... I would only buy if you have the other books in the series..then yes well worth the buy... b/c this book is pretty pricey.

  • One Lucky Vampire: Argeneau Vampires, Book 19

    "Really good addition to the series :D"

    Overall
    Performance
    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

    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

    Story

    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

    Out Of Control by Alexandra Ivy

    4-4.5 stars

    This was a really good story. It’s my first story by Ms. Ivy and I was impressed with her writing. As this is the beginning of the Sentinals series (#.05) I’ll definitely be checking out the first book in the series.

    Angela is a student in genetics. She’s very smart but also very shy. She’s been interested in one of the new professors but despairs when she thinks he has no interest in her. Of course he keeps showing up to see her but she’s always sure he has other reasons than interest in her.

    Nikolo is a Sentinal and is hunting for another Sentinal that’s gone crazy. He’s convinced that she’ll come looking for Angela because of her abilities in genetics and has been shadowing Angela because of this, pretending he’s a visiting professor. Along the way, Nikolo finds himself falling for the sweet scientist.

    When the psycho comes after Angela, Nikolo has to protect her and ends up revealing himself and what his mission is. Seeing that she was used as bait, Angela is hurt by this and isn’t very happy with Nikolo. Now he has to go all out to try to get her forgiveness while still keeping her safe. Obviously this is a short story so things go pretty quickly but it was well written so it didn’t feel stinted. It ends well and overall I really liked the story and the characters.


    Ties That Bind by Nina Bangs

    3-3.5 stars

    This was a good story. It’s the first story I’ve read by the author. Based on this I might try more buy the author in the future.

    Cassie does a friend a favor and ends up regretting it. While covering for a few hours at a funeral parlor for a friend, Cassie finds herself involved in an undercover plot that is heading her towards getting killed. When she unexpectedly releases an imprisoned vampire, he helps her and they escape together.

    Ethan is a vampire that was captured and held captive via mystical means by humans for unknown reasons. When he escapes he finds himself involved with Cassie and doesn’t want to let her go. He keeps her near to keep her safe while he and other vampires try to discover what the human hunters want and why they’re after the vampires.

    During all the drama Cassie and Ethan find themselves drawn together. There’s an added part to the vampire mythos in this story that makes Ethan more dangerous to Cassie but she’s still drawn to him. Although they fight it, they both feel the pull to each other and obviously they end up giving in. Just as things are looking good between the 2 of them the action drama spikes and Cassie is captured by the enemy. They do something terrible to her before Ethan is able to save her but it works out to make for a good ending.

    This was a good story. It has a HEA for the romance but the action plotline wasn’t fully resolved and I can’t find that it’s part of an existing series so the plot might not get resolved overall (let’s just say they won the battle but not the war). TBH, I wish the story had been a bit longer. I think I would have liked the story more with more character development. Overall I did enjoy the story and would be willing to try something more full-length by the author


    In Still Darkness by Dianne Duvall

    4.5-5 stars

    This was a great story. I've read the rest of the Immortal Guardians series and loved it so I was really thrilled to see Richart get his story.

    Jenna is 37 years old and has a son that just started college. She works as the night manager at a superstore. She hasn't had things easy but has made a good life for her and her son. One night at the end of work she is attacked by Vampires and is saved. In gratitude for saving her, she gives her savior a kiss that she doesn't remember later.

    Richart is an Immortal Guardian (immortals that hunt Vampires and protect humans). He is hunting vampires one night when he hears a woman scream. He goes to her rescue and saves her, earning a kiss for his troubles. But afterwards, Richart can't forget her and finds himself visiting her, frequently.

    Jenna and Richart start out with a light flirtation between them. Richart goes to her store often when she's working and they've chatted while sharing coffee on her breaks. After a bit he asks her out on a date and she's a bit unsure about their age differences, since she's sure she's older than him. He convinces her it doesn't matter to him and they start to date.

    Things are going good between them, and Richart even meets her son and they get long well, when things heat up in the vamp world. During a fight with vampires, Richart gets drugged and as a result, ends up accidentally showing what he is to Jenna. He had intended to tell her anyways but it came out in a bad way. Fortunately, Jenna didn't freak and was willing to hear his explanations. Once she heard everything, she was willing to stay with him regardless of their differences. Things grow between Richart and Jenna but there is an issue that almost costs Jenna her life. Things turn out well though and Richart & Jenna get a very nice HEA.

    I thought this story was great. I love the series and I'm glad Richart got his book and the girl. Jenna is cool and I look forward to seeing her character in the next book in the series.


    High Stakes by Hannah Jayne

    3 stars

    This was a good story. It’s the first I’ve read by this author and while it was alright I’m not sure if I’ll try another book by this author.

    Nina is a fashion designer that’s in New York for a competition. She’s also a vampire. She finds trouble before the competition even starts when one of the 3 designers in the competition is killed. When the second is killed, Nina becomes the prime suspect.

    Pike is a photographer. We don’t get much background about him but he is assigned to take pictures of the 3 competitors and ends up getting drawn in to things when the first body shows up. When the second ends up being an ex of his and he becomes a possible suspect he tries to find the murderer.

    Nina decides she should try finding out who the murderer is because she’s a suspect. Pike keeps showing up and alternately accusing her of the murders and helping her investigate. Nina’s attracted to Pike but since he runs hot and cold on her, he’s hard to figure out. TBH, I didn’t feel the heat between them. As I was reading, I wasn’t sure how they’d come together in the end. The murders do get solved and Nina and Pike end things on somewhat good terms but I really don’t have a clue if they ended up together at the end of the story or not. There was a comment about them making a good team but we’re not left with any idea if they’ll try a relationship or not (although I guess you’re supposed to assume they do…). Maybe it was just me not liking the writing style but I ended the story feeling a little disappointed that there wasn’t a more solid conclusion.


    Its total run time is 12:07. The story start times are:

    Out Of Control by Alexandra Ivy – the first story
    Ties That Bind by Nina Bangs – starts at 3:11
    In Still Darkness by Dianne Duvall – starts at 6:09
    High Stakes by Hannah Jayne – Starts at 9:18

    Valiant Valiant Valiant!!! I LOVE him, and I totally loved this book! I'm so hooked on this series right now it's all I'm listening to. I laughed so many times throughout this book it was as though it was a romantic comedy. Valiant's reasoning and his passion for Tammy made this one of my favorites of 2013 for sure. Although I'd consider it within the paranormal genre its just different enough to offer you a change of pace if you're into paranormal romance novels. The narration is really good, and was one of the things I loved the most with this particular book, the voice characterization for Valiant just tickled me to pieces, especially with the lines he had--I was in stitches! Beyond the humor, this series is very endearing and you will LOVE all the characters guaranteed. So far I've not been disappointed greatly and have already moved on to book 4--JUSTICE--he seems to be a delicious piece of work, so I can't wait!

    Jamie Fraser knows from his time-traveling wife Claire that, no matter how unlikely it seems, America will win the Revolutionary War. But that truth offers little solace, since Jamie realizes he might find himself pointing a weapon directly at his own son - a young officer in the British army. And Jamie isn't the only one with a tormented soul - for Claire may know who wins the conflict, but she certainly doesn't know whether or not her beloved Jamie survives.

    Callie Chabot would stop at nothing to save her ex-boyfriend Blade Bennett from the clutches of vampire clan leader Talis de Rancourt, even if means becoming immortal herself. What she doesn't know is that Blade has already defeated Talis, and he's waiting for Callie in the afterlife. Now Callie only has her creator, Tristan Trevosier, to turn to for guidance. But he's too wrapped up in the debauchery of the Las Vegas rock scene to give a damn about the particulars of being undead.
