    They call him Lord Lyon, proud, determined - and cursed. He is in need of a bride, but if he falls in love, he dies. His fervent hope is that by marrying - and having a son - without love, perhaps he can break the curse's chains forever. Enter beautiful Thea Martin - a duke's headstrong, errant daughter and society's most brilliant matchmaker. Years ago, she and Lyon were inseparable, until he disappeared from her life without a word. Now she is charged with finding Lyon's bride - a woman he cannot love for a man Thea could love too well.

    Some stories can't be contained between the covers of just one book. In Ice Queen, Tyler helped Mistress Marguerite fulfill the mentoring requirement The Zone club imposes on all its Dominant members, to learn about BDSM from the submissive's perspective. Though Marguerite is one of The Zone's most sought-after Mistresses, Tyler is convinced she is a "switch," a closet submissive. But the truth that is revealed is more remarkable than that. As he begins to unravel the complex and terrible layers of her past, Tyler must do what he's never been willing to do before.

    I have now listened to three of her books and first off I will say you don't have to be into it but you have to have an open mind concerning BDSM, there is a plot to each of the stories although know that Ice Queen and Mirror of My Soul should have been one book and need to be purchased together. I did enjoy the books and for the money they were an erotic read

    After turning his back on the throne for centuries, Wrath, son of Wrath, finally assumed his father's mantle - with the help of his beloved mate. But the crown sets heavily on his head. As the war with the Lessening Society rages on, and the threat from the Band of Bastards truly hits home, he is forced to make choices that put everything - and everyone - at risk. Beth Randall thought she knew what she was getting into when she mated the last pure blooded vampire on the planet: An easy ride was not it.

    Yes he does a very good job


    Any additional comments?

    I have listened to all of the Black Dagger Brotherhood so far and have not been disappointed in one of them to be able to keep a great story line going after 12 stories and especially one as long as this book and never board a minute

    Drew and Jenny have spent years being the envy of their friends with their out of control sex lives - well, not really. Mostly it makes their friends want to throw up in their mouths a little.With two little kids and two busy lives, for the first time, Drew and Jenny aren't on the same page in the bedroom. Drew will stop at nothing to get his previously amorous wife back in the sack, and Jenny will do anything for a full night of sleep.

    There's always one more grave to dig. Lately, life has been unnaturally calm for vampires Cat Crawfield and her husband, Bones. They should have known better than to relax their guard, because a shocking revelation sends them back into action to stop an all-out war…. A rogue CIA agent is involved in horrifying secret activities that threaten to raise tensions between humans and the undead to dangerous heights. Now Cat and Bones are in a race against time to save their friends from a fate worse than death…because the more secrets they unravel, the deadlier the consequences.

    Having narrowly averted an (under)world war, Cat Crawfield wants nothing more than a little downtime with her vampire husband, Bones. Unfortunately, her gift from New Orleans’ voodoo queen just keeps on giving - leading to a personal favor that sends them into battle once again, this time against a villainous spirit. Centuries ago, Heinrich Kramer was a witch hunter. Now, every All Hallows Eve, he takes physical form to torture innocent women before burning them alive.

    I have listened to hundreds of books and I can tell you I have never listened to another that can make a book as enjoyable to listen to as Tavia Gilbert. She makes each person within the book come alive with a different voice, the books are great but she makes them GREAT!!!

    Just finished this series for the third time to refresh my memory before listening to Book 7 which will be released in a few days. I enjoyed them no less this time than the first, they will touch your emotions in many ways, listen to them you will not be disappointed.

    Young interior designer Ava O'Shea has no idea what awaits her at the Manor. A run-of-the-mill consultation with a stodgy country gent seems likely, but what Ava finds instead is Jesse Ward - a devastatingly handsome, utterly confident, pleasure-seeking playboy who knows no boundaries. Ava doesn't want to be attracted to this man, and yet she can't control the overwhelming desire that he stirs in her. She knows that her heart will never survive him and her instinct is telling her to run, but Jesse is not willing to let her go. He wants her and is determined to have her.

    Haven't read the book don't have the time I listen to all my books and really enjoyed it I actually find that I get a lot more out of listening to them, a good narrator can make a book the best or the worst and Edita Brychta was great

    Just hate waiting for the next one which won't be out till the end of November and not sure if that is just the written version

    Would you listen to Revealing Us again? Why?

    Yes, has a good story line not just an erotic sex book but good story as well


    What other book might you compare Revealing Us to and why?

    Along the line of Fifty Shades but in a different direction more of what one can do to ones self rather than another


    What about Grace Grant’s performance did you like?

    She is great to listen to does men and women 's voice equally as well, I have enjoyed her in several books


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Lots of emotional highs and lows but not like other books have effected me and sometimes it is nice just to listen to a book that does not effect you to that level
