    Betsy Taylor needs a job and amazingly lands the perfect one: selling designer shoes at Macy's. But the other vamps, including sexy Sinclair, don't want their queen selling shoes. And the vampire hunters are becoming a real pain, murdering innocent vampires. It seems that everyone wants something from Betsy.

    I do not get the main character in this- who knows that much about shoes?? And the author would have to know it to write about it. Unless it is all made up...
    The narrator is also irritating, but maybe it is the infantile dialogue?
    For the record- I did find the first book entertaining enough to try this one.

    Valora Delos is a hunter, charged with tracking the treacherous Soulstealers and bringing them to justice. She descends to Earth and finds herself trapped in suburban Seattle after the portal to her world closes. With the help of a sexy half-fae named Dooley, Valora must find her way back in order to save Dell'Aria. Dooley uses his own brand of magic to help Valora discover memories buried deep within her, which only produces more questions than answers - questions about her growing attraction to Dooley and her devotion to her King.

    Not sure what target audience this is for... I would have said young children- but then the sex scenes??
    Juvenile story and juvenile reading that I kept thinking would get better and it never did.

    Dani "Mega" O’Malley plays by her own set of rules - and in a world overrun by Dark Fae, her biggest rule is: Do what it takes to survive. Possessing rare talents and the all-powerful Sword of Light, Dani is more than equipped for the task. In fact, she’s one of the few humans who can defend themselves against the Unseelie. But now, amid the pandemonium, her greatest gifts have turned into serious liabilities.

    Story

    A brilliant narration of a wonderful story. Even though I was thinking of passing on this one because the main character is only 14, I am so glad I didn't. The author makes the age of the lead work and I laughed out loud at some of her dialogue. I am left really looking forward to the next instalment.

    New York Times and USA Today best-selling author G.A. Aiken is widely celebrated for her compelling Dragon Kin series. In The Dragon Who Loved Me, Rhona the Fearless, first daughter of a proud warrior family, resents that she’s not respected for her battle prowess by the male Northland dragons. But when one barbarian dragon becomes enamored with her, she begins to relish her influence over him.

    The narrator for this does not distinguish enough between voices so it is very difficult to follow the story.

    Emma Corrigan has a long list of secrets, one of which is that she is afraid of flying. Coming back from a thoroughly ruinous sales trip to Glasgow, the plane she is on encounters some air turbulence, and she ends up spilling her guts to the handsome American sitting next to her. He gets to hear that she fibbed to get her current job and that she has never been able to satisfactorily find her G-spot. Then, the plane lands...and the American turns up in her life again. He's the CEO of her company....

    Although I like Kate Reading as a narrator- she did not do it for me in this book. She was annoying as the main character. However, it is a fun listen. I would discourage one from listening to Kinsella books back to back though- it becomes a little too much of a good thing!

    Poppy Wyatt has never felt luckier. She is about to marry her ideal man, Magnus Tavish, but in one afternoon her “happily ever after” begins to fall apart. Not only has she lost her engagement ring in a hotel fire drill but in the panic that follows, her phone is stolen. As she paces shakily around the lobby, she spots an abandoned phone in a trash can. Finders keepers! Now she can leave a number for the hotel to contact her when they find her ring. Perfect! Well, perfect except that the phone’s owner, businessman Sam Roxton, doesn’t agree.

    Story

    I have to say that I liked the narrator. I listen to all of my audiobooks in fast playback and this does make a huge difference to my tolerance level but she was far from intolerable.

    So- if you want a mindless, fun listen- this is not far off the mark.

    Keep in mind it is a Harlequin!

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

    Tim says: "True Blood PG13"
    "Over rated"
    Overall

    OK to pass the time. I am not quite sure what I am missing- I can't quite see what all of the rave reviews are for. The narration is good. The main characters are not easy to like but after all of the time I spent listening to this book- absolutely nothing stands out- except Diana was always tired!

    Atlanta would be a nice place to live, if it weren't for the magic. When the magic is up, rogue mages cast their spells and monsters appear, while guns refuse to fire and cars fail to start. But then technology returns, and the magic recedes as unpredictably as it arose. Kate Daniels works for the Order of Knights of Merciful Aid, officially as a liaison with the mercenary guild. Unofficially, she cleans up the paranormal problems no one else wants to handle - especially if they involve Atlanta's shapeshifting community.

    Leslie says: "GREAT BOOK, Perfect Narrator!"
    "Great story"

    The narration was good and the story was not disappointing. A very good series and this was worth waiting for- GO for it!

    The girl everybody loves to hate has returned to the town she'd sworn to leave behind forever. As the rich, spoiled princess of Parrish, Mississippi, Sugar Beth Carey had broken hearts, ruined friendships, and destroyed reputations. But 15 years have passed, now she's come home, broke, desperate, and too proud to show it.

    Except for an annoying voice for the lead male- this was a wonderful book. Well worth it!
