    They call me the Spider. I'm the most feared assassin in the South -- when I'm not busy at the Pork Pit cooking up the best barbecue in Ashland. As a Stone elemental, I can hear everything from the whispers of the gravel beneath my feet to the vibrations of the soaring Appalachian Mountains above me. My Ice magic also comes in handy for making the occasional knife. But I don't use my powers on the job unless I absolutely have to. Call it professional pride.

    when i saw this book i thought ok id give it a try. was i ever surprised. not only are the characters interesting but the book almost had me enthralled. it normally takes me about a week to listen to a 10 hour book due to the driving that i do.(only listen while i drive) finished it in 2 days. could not stop listening.and no i didnt drive more then usual.very worth the listen. getting ready to get the next 2 now....cant wait

    When lingerie heiress Brandy Summer gets cold feet and runs out on her Vegas wedding, she has nowhere to turn, so she hijacks a hunky biker waiting for a red light and begs him for help. What she doesn't know is that her instincts are right: the groom has a hidden agenda. He needs her money to pay off his gambling debts and she's his ticket to the good life.

    "laughed so hard I cried"
    Overall

    I normally get books that last at least 10 or more hours. i saw this one and was desperate and thought ok ill bite.I am so glad I did! I havent laughed so hard at a book in a long time. This book was well worth the money i spent on it. You start out laughing and end laughing. The characters in this book are both strong and insecure ,but they both have you laughing. i didnt spend much time rolling my eyes.(most book i find a few places that i do that). just one or two when they were spending to much time doubting themselves. So if you are looking for a short but funny listen this is one i would sell.

    "It's hard to be a badass assassin when a giant is beating the crap out of you. Luckily, I never let pride get in the way of my work. My current mission is personal: annihilate Mab Monroe, the Fire elemental who murdered my family, which means protecting my identity, even if I have to conceal my powerful Stone and Ice magic when I need it most."

    very entertaining couldn't put it down all 3 books enthralling. keeps you hanging on every word. Jennifer Estep knows what she is doing. cant wait for the rest of them to be published. NOT TILL 2011 NNNNOOOOOO to far away

    Miss Dorothea Darent has no intention of ever getting married, certainly not to a rogue such as the Marquis of Hazelmere. A disreputable scoundrel, he is captivated when they meet by chance and is determined to win her heart, even while she's busy dazzling the rest of London society. Now Dorothea has a choice to make: stick with her plan to remain a respectable spinster, or run into the arms of her dashing stranger.

    Overall

    i have enjoyed many books by this author. i thought this would be one as well. i was so wrong. book is painfully slow. i have listened to most of it out of boredom seeing as how i am a long distance driver. i am very disappointed in this work. hope it is the only one like this. very talented writer otherwise.

    Sweet Revenge is the 1800s period tale of Gabrielle, a young spirited woman coming into her own. Lovely and lusty, she easily attracts the looks of men - and on one unfortunate day the attention of a rather lusty bloke named Shawn Beaudry, who takes advantage of her beauty. However, her hate melts away to love. But can they both fight against their bitterness and free up their passions?

    Melody says: "Almost impossible to listen to."
    "what happened"
    Overall

    from the synopsis i thought that this would be a good book. first the narrator clipped and over enunciated every word. although words were meant to be soft they were harsh. the hero and heroin were both written as simpering fools. as a avid reader i was hugely disappointed. total waste time. couldn't make it through first 3 chapters forced myself that far.
