    When a mission gone wrong kills his best friend, navy SEAL Matthew Parker will stop at nothing to destroy the demons who threaten his team. To do so, Matt must locate a mysterious orb before the demons use it to destroy the world. But the only woman who can help him - Sienna McClare - has her own agenda…and every reason for hating his kind. A half blood, Sienna hopes returning the orb to her people will gain her acceptance back into the only family she's known. But working with a Draicon werewolf like Matt comes with a high price - one that could cost Sienna her dreams.

    I think the story would have been better without all the stuff about the Navy Seals. I found it distracting. Overall it was somewhat entertaining. If I had it to do over again though...I probably wouldn't.... spend a credit. Jim Frangione however, was great as usual. I could listen to him all day :)

    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.

    I could have listened for hours & hours! and just like another reviewer, when this book was finally available to download, I stopped in the middle of another book I was reading to start this one. Every free minute I could get, I was listening, Wrath & Beth's plot, all the sub plots were great in fact, I think she could do a whole book on Scor & Layla.
    If JR Ward continues to crank'em out I will continue to buy and read them! (i've read all eleven books three times) and I really hope she will continue to write more...there is plenty of room for expansion! Tres/IM, Asail etc... I will never get enough of Black Dagger Brotherhood! I think I'll finish my other book and then re-read this one again. No need to ask if its worth a credit...

    PS. Jim Frangione is the best! If they even think about using someone else to narrate future books...(in the words of Pretty Woman) It would be the biggest mistake...Huge!

    It was whispered all through London society that he was a murderer, that he'd spent his youth in an asylum and was not to be trusted - especially with a lady. Any woman caught in his presence was immediately ruined. Yet Beth found herself inexorably drawn to the Scottish lord whose hint of a brogue wrapped around her like silk and whose touch could draw her into a world of ecstasy.

    Eveline Armstrong is fiercely loved and protected by her powerful clan, but outsiders consider her "touched." Beautiful, fey, with a level, intent gaze, she doesn't speak. No one, not even her family, knows that she cannot hear. Content with her life of seclusion, Eveline has taught herself to read lips and allows the outside world to view her as daft. But when an arranged marriage into a rival clan makes Graeme Montgomery her husband, Eveline accepts her duty -unprepared for the delights to come.

    Story

    It wasn't a bad book by any means.. I quite enjoyed the story and I thought the narrator was great I read the other highland series and thought it was wonderful. This one is not quite the same... much more "loving" in the other ones which I liked. This one not so much although the story was entertaining. I will probably buy the rest just because once I start series I have to finish it. The real question is do I wait for the others go on sale? or give up a credit? Hard choice.

    Story

    The narration made it unreadable. I listen to a lot of books so I am a bit of a narrator snob and to me the tempo and the way in which the narrator read this book just made it difficult to listen to story.

    Seventeen-year-old Lorelei Patio is the adopted daughter of 200-year-old vampire Sergio Patio. She never realized why her family has had to move so often or why she is not permitted to get too friendly with other young people. In fact, except for one shocking moment that seemed more like a dream, Lorelei never fully realized who and what her father was nor what her sisters were brought up to do for him. But one day, that all changed.

    Story

    It looked as if it was going to be a good book, but I was totally disappointed in the ending. The narration was decent, and if want something to kill time then this is your book. The story however seemed a bit under developed... and just when it got interesting...the book ended. Not sure I would waste a credit on this one.

    Welcome to a world of reckless sensuality and glittering sophistication, of dangerously handsome gentlemen and young ladies longing to gain a title, of games played for high stakes, including - on occasion - a lady's virtue. A marquess's sheltered only daughter, Lady Roberta St. Giles, falls in love with a man she glimpses across a crowded ballroom: a duke, a game player of consummate skill, a notorious rakehell who shows no interest in marriage, until he lays eyes on Roberta.

    Lisa Patton won the hearts of readers with her book Whistlin’ Dixie in a Nor’easter, which became a sleeper-success. Building on a smashing debut, Lisa’s poised to go to the next level—because whether in Vermont snow or in Memphis heat, Dixie heroine Leelee Satterfield is never too far from misadventure, calamity—and ultimately, love.

    Don't get me wrong I thought it was a great story! The narrator was great! but I thought in this book we would actually get more into Leelee's relationship with her new guy... but it didn't :( it was a story of her going back to Memphis and really didn't get good until the end...and then it ended.
