    Britain’s high society—le bon ton—loves nothing more than a good scandal, and they’re giddy with the appearance of wealthy Samuel Hartley. Not only is he self-made, American, and in the habit of wearing moccasins, but he is also notorious for fleeing a battle in which several English gentlemen lost their lives. Lady Emeline Gordon is captivated by Samuel. Not only does he defy convention with his unusual dress, his sensual smile, and his forthright manner, but he survived the battle that killed her beloved brother.

    Wasn't sure what to expect since I have never "read" this author, but I am currently downloading book 2. Loved it, of course I absolutely enjoy this period of time in romance novels. I like how the main story follows the "fairy tale" that is the back meaning of this book. Ahhh, true love and the pursuit of it. Ann Flosnik does an excellent job as always, she and Polly Lee and the lilt of English I truly love, had some trouble with the Boston Colonial accent, but it didn't hurt the story. Worth the credit or the purchase. I see book 3 is also available. Cant Wait!!!! LOL I love audio books, I can do 2 things at once LOL.

    Envy's life was great. Great brother, great boyfriend, and the best job a girl could ask for... tending bar at the most popular clubs in the city. At least it was great until she got a call from one of her best friends about her boyfriend doing the vertical limbo on the dance floor at Moon Dance. Her decision to confront him begins a chain of events that will introduce her to a dangerous paranormal world hidden beneath the everyday humdrum.

    Story

    This has to be the worst narrator ever employed. Everyone has the same voice, no man voices ever not many changes in the female voices. She cannot pronounce words like Ro-DAY-o drive not rode-eo drive, Sat-iated not Say-tiated, just to point out a few, she has no idea about voice emphasis and screams loudly for the "talk loud or angry voices". Where did she come from??? Aweful. She must be a junior high drop out, cuz she sure cant read well at all. What a shame
    Now, having said that, I am continuing this series because I really like the story. I have no idea why I found it under erotica, as ordinary romance novels have more sex than this series.
    I agree with another review that the cheesy music is so not needed between change in thoughts by the author. Matter of fact, it is just plain stupid. The whole book sounds as if taped with the narrator sitting in a tin can. But that is not her fault. I guess producers cut corners with production and narration LOL.
    If I had the time I would buy the books and read them not listen to them as this WOULD Be BETTER. I listen and make my stuff that I create at the same time. Major multi tasker LOL.
    Really, there is about 4 stories going on in one book at the same time. But I follow it just fine.
    Save your money and your credit for a listen. BUY the books and read them as the story is really not bad at all. I like all the supernaturals combined into one story. Fallen Angels, Vamps, Shifters, and Were Wolves I dont recall reading anything with all them intermingling, but it is a good way to go for something different.

    Read it, dont listen as you will roll your eyes at all the cheese and worst narration anyone should ever have to endure.

    Some zombies are raised. Others must be put down. Just ask Anita Blake. Before now, she would have considered them merely off-putting, never dangerous. Before now, she had never heard of any of them causing human beings to perish in agony. But that’s all changed. Micah's estranged father lies dying, rotting away inside from some strange ailment that has his doctors whispering about "zombie disease". Anita makes her living off of zombies - but these aren’t the kind she knows so well. These creatures hunt in daylight, and are as fast and strong as vampires.

    Elijah Reynolds is the most dominant of lycans, a rare alpha whose skill on the hunt is surpassed only by his primal sexuality. When the lycans revolt due to the iron fist of angelic rule, he steps into command, becoming both enemy and coveted ally in the conflict between vampires and angels. Vashti is the second most powerful vampire in the world, a lethal beauty who has left a path of devastation in her wake. Tasked with proposing an alliance between vampires and the lycans who killed her mate, Vash approaches Elijah, whose need to avenge a friend demands Vash’s death even as his passion demands her surrender.

    This book will scorch you. This book is super hot and has a great story line with all the hot romance. Hotter than the first one. Those Lycans sure can get down.
    Really! I like it better if the same narrator does a complete series, but really, pick one of the 2 and keep that ONE for the rest of these. This narrator isnt bad, its just my brain just heard the first book and then had to get used to a new voice for all my fav characters.
    This book is so worth the price (actually very low price) and I highly recommend this book and series to everyone that loves a hot romance read that consumes the listener. Had to do this one in 2 nights, but it sure could be a one day or night read. Wow.

But Adrian has suffered his own punishment for becoming involved with mortals - losing the woman he loves again and again. Now, after nearly 200 years, he has found her: Shadoe, her soul once more inhabiting a new body that doesn’t remember him. This time he won’t let her go.

    Story

    A little bit of a 'slow starter" but it got rolling in a few chapters. Very neat twist to the Angel, Vamp, Lycan stuff I normally read. I really loved this book and find it is worth far more than $7. Spend your money here, save your credit for those nineteen and over twenty dollar books, LOL. I cant wait for more of the series, I devoured this one in 3 nights, tried really hard to make it 2 nights but I did have to have a little bit of sleep. Very steamy romance and a very good story to it. You wont be disappointed.
    Narration was hard to get used to at first, but I soon got used to it and really missed it in the 2nd book.

    "Gideon Cross came into my life like lightning in the darkness… He was beautiful and brilliant, jagged and white-hot. I was drawn to him as I’d never been to anything or anyone in my life. I craved his touch like a drug, even knowing it would weaken me. I was flawed and damaged, and he opened those cracks in me so easily…Gideon knew. He had demons of his own. And we would become the mirrors that reflected each other’s most private wounds…and desires."

    I have read nothing but horrible review of the stupid 50 shades. My sister could not even finish reading the 3rd book. This series is so super, I plan on getting the books for her for Christmas. I broke this first one up into 3 nights, nearly killed me, but book 2 was an all nighter. One hour of sleep before I had to get the kids off to school.
    I just loved them both, Book 2 a little more frustrating I guess is the word, like another review said they were all over the place, but I just knew it would all come together. This book, WoW I love a handsome, ripped, self-assured man that knows what he wants and is blunt in asking for it. Man, I would do Gideon. Id even put up with his crap to have him, so I guess I related very well with the main female character.
    I usually save credits for books over 20, so I paid $ for this and the 2nd one, NO REGRETS, I would pay for it or credit for them both.
    Just absolutely ones I will hear more than another time.
    The next book is due I think in March, 2013. Check out the author website and see. I will be in line for that one too.

    Magnus is a man of contradictions - a spiritual leader in a warrior's body. To him, laws are for enforcing and visions must be followed - even if that means freeing a beautiful slave and making her his reluctant handmaiden. Betrayed once before, Magnus can barely bring himself to trust another woman. Yet Daenaira's fiery innocence is drawing them both into a reckless inferno of desire. Daenaira grew up hearing tales of a fearsome priest who seemed more myth than reality. But Magnus is very real - every inch of him - and so is the treachery surrounding them.

    Among the Shadowdwellers, Trace holds power that some are willing to kill for. Without a stranger's aid, one rival would surely have succeeded, but Trace's brush with death is less surprising to him than his reaction to the beautiful, fragile human who heals him. By rights, Trace should hardly even register Ashla's existence within the realm of Shadowscape, but instead he is drawn to everything about her-her innocence, her courage, and her lush, sensual heat.

    Worth money or credits, how can anyone be disappointed in this series. Cannot say enough about it. Dont hesitate, listen to all of them, you will be waiting on the edge of your seat like me for the next book.

    What would have made Party of Three better?

    better narration, and the story was just missing something, i quit listening to it, may take a month or more for me to want to finish it.


    What was most disappointing about Daire St. Denis’s story?

    Ya know, Im not real sure.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Emily Cauldwell?

    Tavia Gilbert, maybe or amanda ronconi. or heck, that Justine Erye would have been better and she is not one of my top 5 favs. ANYONE with more than 1 voice tone and inflection when voices change.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    all three emotions really


    Any additional comments?

    perhaps I may listen again and storywise it will improve, but I can tell now, no more from this narrator or author.

    Great Series, Great Narration.
    I really did not like Furys book the first time. I read it in hardback as this did not exist then. He came across as whiney and "oh woah is me".
    The second time thru I listened to it. I really listened, and paid closer attention to Furys story and really got A LOT more out of the back story I dont understand drug addiction, but I believe that I have a food addiction, so I related more this time to his "escape". I felt really bad for him and his life and how his parents felt toward him. Cormia was so very healing for him and helped him with the one day at a time stuff and I felt so happy for him this time. He came across as more tortured and in pain, so I got it so much better and it helped me relate to the entire story. Z really knew no other life, so he did not know that he "needed" rescued, and Fury wanted a thanks and envied Z his woman and baby on the way, Fury gave up his younger life to search for and rescue Z, he made the choice and should not have been so jealous, but that is the way of it. That part of this story really moved me.

    Man, I love this series, they feel like family. I hate that it takes so long until the next installment, then I devour it way too fast.
    You cant go wrong with this series by cash or credit.
