    If you could sum up Immortal Ever After in three words, what would they be?

    After actually reading the first 17 books plus novellas of this series I just knew I'd love to listen to this edition. While I thought the narrator was fine I think I'm use to the voice in my head when it comes to these characters.

    Also, I thought the story needed a little something. I just didn't feel the attraction between couple, especially when he keeps saying she wasn't the prettiest woman he'd ever seen. Kinda like, 'oh, she'll do. I guess. If I have to.' But still I thought overall it was a good story and nice performance.

    For seven years, Lord Garrett Sinclair - the ruggedly handsome illegitimate son of the Duke of Pembroke - has been traveling abroad with no intention of ever returning home to Pembroke Palace… until his father commands that he must marry by Christmas in order to thwart a family curse or lose his inheritance forever. Haunted by a tragic accident that has hardened his soul, Garrett entrusts his brothers to seek out a bride who will agree to a marriage in name only. Her reward? A sizable share of his inheritance - payable immediately after the wedding night.

    Story

    This was a fun little Christmas novella. In order to break a curse the mad duke's sons must be married by Christmas Eve. Garrett Sinclair left home 7 years ago but has returned just in time to marry the woman his brothers have chosen for him. This will be a loveless marriage with the couple living separately for the remainder of their days. Lady Anne has no marriage prospects and is disowned by most of her family after she ran away with a tutor years earlier, the tutor was paid off and she expects to remain a spinster for the rest of her life, that is until the Sinclair brothers make her an offer that will give her financial freedom. What Garrett and Anne did not expect was to fall in love. Yes, this novella is short, but it is a fully fleshed out story.

    The Douglas sisters, beauties all, are valuable pawns in their family's bitter struggle to control the Scottish Crown. But when powerful enemies threaten, each Douglas lass will find she must face them alone. Captured by a Laird Haunted by his father's violent death, David Hume, the new laird of Wedderburn, sets out to make his name so feared that no one will dare harm his family again. The treacherous ally who played on his father's weakness is dead and beyond David's vengeance, but his castle and young widow are ripe for the taking. The moment David lays eyes on the dark-haired beauty defending her wee daughters, however, he knows this frail-looking lass is the one person who could bring him to his knees. Wed at thirteen to a man who tried daily to break her spirit, Lady Alison Douglas is looking forward to a long widowhood. But when the fearsome warrior known as the Beast of Wedderburn storms her gates, she finds herself, once again, forced to wed a stranger. Alison is only a pawn to serve his vengeance, so why does this dark warrior arouse such fiery passion and an unwelcome longing in her heart? With death and danger looming, these two wounded souls must learn to trust each other; for only love can save them.

    Story

    I really enjoyed this story. I thought it was well performed though I would not have chosen a man to narrate this story. His female voices came across as whiny in places, but not so bad as to make me stop listening. The note from the author explaining how she writes fiction but drew greatly upon historical information was a nice bonus at the end that often does not make it into audio editions. Overall I am well pleased.

    After traveling through time in Shadow of Night, the second book in Deborah Harkness's enchanting series, historian and witch Diana Bishop and vampire scientist Matthew Clairmont return to the present to face new crises and old enemies. At Matthew's ancestral home at Sept-Tours, they reunite with the cast of characters from A Discovery of Witches - with one significant exception. But the real threat to their future has yet to be revealed, and when it is, the search for Ashmole 782 and its missing pages takes on even more urgency.

    Haters are going to hate, but I thought Jennifer Ikeda did a fantastic job juggling all the voices. If there was any variations from previous books I didn't notice, but it's been almost two years since I listened to the last one.
    For those that are worried about authors that sacrifice characters in the end for their own personal glee I will say without spoilers that doesn't happen here. Enjoy a great read.

    Most girls might think twice before getting engaged to someone like Reyes Farrow - but Charley Davidson is not most girls. She’s a paranormal private eye and grim-reaper-in-training who’s known to be a bit of a hell-raiser, especially after a few shots of caffeine. Her beloved Reyes may be the only begotten son of evil, but he’s dark and sultry and deeply sexy and everything Charley could hope for. Really. But when the FBI file on Reyes’ childhood happens to land into her lap, she can’t help herself: She opens it...and then the real fun begins.

    What made the experience of listening to Sixth Grave on the Edge the most enjoyable?

    Darynda Jones and Lorelei King are a dynamic duo! I found myself laughing out loud many times!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I have to pick one? I love Charlie and Reyes and Cookie and Swoops and....everyone! Each character is perfect.


    What does Lorelei King bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Lorelei King has great timing and her delivery is spot on every time.

    Gail Carriger’s best-selling Parasol Protectorate series reimagines Victorian England with vampires, werewolves, and a dash of steampunk. Blameless is the third in the series starring the parasol-wielding Lady Alexia Maccon, formerly Alexia Tarabotti. After news spreads of her delicate condition—a surprise to everyone since she’s married to a werewolf—Alexia is desperate to escape the London gossip. So she heads to Italy for a change of scenery.

    Story

    The overly long pauses between chapters in this book were simply nerve wracking. Three seconds is one thing but 10 to 15 seconds of dead air lasts forever when you're waiting on the story to progress. On more that one occasion I thought something was wrong with my devise or headphones. Emily Gray does an excellent job and I hate to rate this as only 3 Stars, but I simply cannot recommend this book on audio without mentioning to horrible dead air pauses. I will continue on to the next book and hope for better editing.

That was half a lifetime ago. Now Lost Lake is about to slip into Eby’s past. Her husband, George, is long passed. Most of her demanding extended family are gone.

    Story

    At first I wasn't sure about the narration choice, but as the book went on I realized that she did in fact do the book justice. There are three generations of people to cover and Janet Metzger did a fine job.
    Kate has been sleep walking through life for the last year after her husband died. Her mother-in-law Cricket has taken over her life and is moving Kate and Devin in with her. For her own political reasons, of course. Cricket is not a lovable character.
    Devin discovers a post card that Kate's great-aunt sent Kate when she was 12, a post card that Kate never saw. They decide to take a chance and go visit.
    The book has some wonderful quotes that Sarah Addison Allen is known for. There is a little bit of magic, but less than some of her other books. I would have enjoyed reading more about Kate and Wes' beginning romance.
    The cast of characters are delightful and their back-stories that are woven into the book are nicely done.

    Anna Moder has just witnessed a shooting, seen her car pulverized, and rescued a wounded stranger - only to discover he's really a werewolf. And by her recent standards, things are actually looking up. Lycanthropes don't faze Anna. Doctoring a wolf pack outside Grundy, Alaska, is the closest thing to home life she's known in years. But hitching a ride to Anchorage with long-absent pack member Caleb Graham - that's a risk. Part of her itches to whack his nose with a newspaper. The rest is trying unsuccessfully to keep her own paws off every delicious inch of him.

    I love Molly Harper. I love Amanda Ronconi. Together they make magic. I feel that Amanda truly gets Molly's sarcasm and wit. For this reason alone I will pre-order all of Molly's books.

    This book is a stand alone. If you picked it up just because it's new the story will make perfect sense. Of course it is part of a series and if you'd like more information on the pack go back and listen to the other books in this series.

    Now that I've finished this book I can go back to complaining that it takes too long for each story to be published. ;)

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old - when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer. Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he’s hounded Atticus for centuries....

    A friend told me last month that I really needed to add Kevin Hearne to my enormous TBR pile. I assured him that I was very busy but would check him out as soon as possible. A couple of days later this book came up on the daily deal, and I couldn't pass up on that price. After all, I had agreed to check this author out.

    After the sugar high of Halloween I started Hounded and listened to the first chapter. I really like Luke Daniel's voice and the way he comes across as Atticus O'Sullivan and his voice for the dog, Oberon is perfect as well. I could not imagine a better narrator for this book. I was seriously disappointed when I had to put the book down and get some rest and again the next day when I was expected to work for 8 hours.

    I'll leave others to explain the plot, but will say that I found it to be quite fun. The wit that filled the pages from this ancient Druid were fun and I found myself on more that one occasion chuckling out loud. I very much look forward to starting the next book and fully expect to be through the rest of this series by Thanksgiving.

    Can Kevin write any faster?

    Annabel was about to take the veil to become a nun, when her mother suddenly arrived at the abbey to take her home...so that she can marry the Scottish laird who is betrothed to her runaway sister! She knows nothing about being a wife, nothing about how to run a household, and definitely nothing about the marriage bed. From the moment Ross MacKay sets eyes on Annabel, he is taken with his shy, sweet bride...and the fact that she's blessed with lush curves only makes him utter his own prayers of thanks. But when an enemy endangers her life, he'll move the Highlands themselves to save her.

    Charley Davidson isn’t your everyday, run-of-the-mill grim reaper. She’s more of a paranormal private eye/grim reaper extraordinaire. However, she gets sidetracked when the sexy, sultry son of Satan, Reyes Farrow, moves in next door. To further complicate matters, Reyes is her main suspect in an arson case. Charley has vowed to stay away from him until she can find out the truth... but then dead women start appearing in her apartment, one after another, each lost, confused, and terrified beyond reason.
