    When the Lusitania sank, more than one 1,000 people died. One passenger, however, survived to become a changed man, giving up his life as a petty thief but keeping a small silver statue that would become a family heirloom to future generations. Now, nearly a century later, that heirloom, one of a priceless, long-separated set of three, has been snatched away from the Sullivans.

    Nora Roberts is an excellent writer. Ms. Quigley is an excellent narrator. Altogether a first rate production.

    One betta fish, two dead biologists, three trysts, four suspects, and 35 pairs of shoes add up to complicated days in paradise for Special Agent Marcella Scott. Marcella gets into sand way over her Manolos investigating the death of a prominent scientist who washed up on a Waikiki beach with a bullet hole between the eyes. BioGreen, a genetically-engineered algae that could solve the world fuel crisis, has been stolen from the development lab - a hotbed of intrigue where everyone on the project has something to hide.

    When college student Rena Collins finds herself nose-to-chest with the campus outcast, she's stunned. Wallace Blake is everything she's ever wanted in a man - except he can't touch her. His uncontrollable strength, a so-called gift from his bloodline, makes every interaction dangerous. And with a secret, supernatural war brewing among his kind, there's no time to work it out. To keep Wallace in her life, Rena will have to risk a whole lot more than her heart.

    I enjoy eroticism but this, poorly written smut. I got through about 15 minutes and was bored, very bored. A plot should make itself known soonest to get the interest of the reader/listener. Not happening here. It sounded more like characters trying to get all the known sexual positions into the first 10 or so minutes. I am a Lora Leigh fan but this one puts her light under a dirty bucket. Too bad.

    Josslyn found perfection once, and she knows she’ll never find it again. Now widowed, she seeks the one thing her beloved husband couldn’t give her: dominance. Lonely, searching for an outlet for her grief and wanting only a brief taste of the perfection she once enjoyed, she seeks what she’s looking for at an exclusive club that caters to people indulging in their most hedonistic fantasies. She never imagined that what she’d find would be the one man who’s long been a source of comfort - and secret longing. Her husband’s best friend....

    Story

    I generally enjoy Ms. Banks' writing, especially her "Colter's Legacy" series. I'm disappointed in in this effort. The characters natter on and on about their angst over the death of the husband. That's really boring. The narrator doesn't help. She has a very nasally voice and when a word ends in the letter P, it ends up having an F sound added in. This book just doesn't live up to her outstanding reputation.

    In the year 2078, Cross Step, Kansas, is now home to strange portals called Voids. Norms (normal people), Voiders (those who came through the Voids), and Conduits (humans affected by the Voids) all live together, segregated from the rest of the world. Vicki is a Conduit, a human with the psychic ability to tap into the energy around her. A mistake at a bar puts her under the scrutiny of one very hungry Ravager pack, werewolf-like Voiders who like what they see. Eric isn’t just any Ravager, he’s Prime, the king of his clan. He takes what he wants, when he wants it - and he wants Vicki.

    I was very disappointed in the story line, the repetitive language, just the whole story in general. Wasn't too fond of the narrator either. Monotone reading, flat voice.

    I thoroughly enjoy Ms. Leigh's series, of which this is a part. I do wish it could have been a bit longer but it fits well within the plot of the whole. The characters, while fantasy, are believable in their own world. I'm half in love with each of them as I read their stories. If one is not familiar with the series, Styx's Storm is a good place to start. This is a good read.

    I'd never heard of Jim Butcher or Harry Dresden until I downloaded this first book on a whim. I should pay more attention to my whims. A delightful novel and a great narrator. I'm collecting the rest of this series.
