    Neville Roscoe, notorious and enigmatic, lives resolutely outside society, bound only by his own code of honor - until challenged by his desire for the one woman he cannot have. Miranda Clifford is a lady imprisoned by rigid respectability - until tempted by a passion beyond her power to deny. Flung together in peril, through danger and intrigue, they discover a love impossible to ignore...or keep.

    Story

    There is a couple of reviws who don't like Matthew Brenher's narration. Obviously they are new listeners to Stephanies books as he narrates a few of her books. I have listened to better but I would not say he is on the worst scale by any means.

    Awesome to have a wee crossover to the Black Cobra Quartet books, albeit a small one. I do love her books and anyone who has read them will as well.

    This is a must have to any Laurens fan library.

    When Evan Trueblood blows into town looking for his wife, Molly, he’s convinced that she came to see her best friend, Jane. But it seems like the witch made it to New Orleans and then disappeared without a trace. Jane is ready to do whatever it takes to find her friend. Her desperate search leads her deep into a web of black magic and betrayal and into the dark history between vampires and witches. But the closer she draws to Molly, the closer she draws to a new enemy - one who is stranger and more powerful than any she has ever faced.

    Sometimes the only way to love - and redemption - is to make a deal with the devil. After the death of her parents, Lady Aurora de Marquise is left with no illusions. Stripped of her birthright and betrayed by her uncle, escape is her only option. With her life on the line, she narrowly avoids another murder attempt - only to run headlong into Lord Brigham de Mornay, a man most consider a monster. With her uncle's henchmen nipping at her heels, Aurora knows better than to trust a stranger - especially one as compelling as Brigham.

    Story

    I initially got this book thinking it was a circle of seven book but upon listening to it for a bit I realized it wasn't. No big. It's your pretty standard His Rom formula. man meets woman, wants her, she resists, they get together then a baddy from her past kidnaps her and tries to kill her..yadda yadda.

    Well worth a credit if you want some feel good action of a romantical (yes totally made up word) type.

    Narration wasn't too bad (unfortunately, I have heard worse), some of the pronunciation drove me insane...

    I really enjoyed this story. It was well written and excellently narrated. My attention was kept the whole way through and there are some interesting notes at the end about the true history. I just wish more of her books were available through audible...

    Merit has been a vampire for only a short while, but she's already seen a lifetime's worth of trouble. Anti-vampire riots are erupting all over town, striking vampires where it hurts the most. A splinter group armed with Molotov cocktails and deep-seated hate is intent on clearing the fanged from the Windy City come hell or high water. Merit and her allies rush to figure out who's behind the attacks, who will be targeted next, and whether there's any way to stop the wanton destruction. The battle for Chicago is just beginning, and Merit is running out of time.

    Story

    Not so much the narration but I am still hooked on the first narrator for this series. I am getting used to the change but it's a real pity to have to. I think it should be a rule that if you start narrating a series you keep at it (unless you are voted as real crap) The story line is chugging along nicely. Not real explosive this time but a carry-on in the story..waiting on the next installment.....

    When it comes to sex, Ash McIntyre has always explored his wilder side - extreme and uncompromising. He demands control. And he prefers women who want it like that. Then Ash meets Josie, who seems immune to his charms and his wealth. Intrigued, he begins a relentless pursuit, determined she won’t be the one who got away. He never imagined the one woman to tell him no would be the only woman who’d ever drive him to the edge of desire.

    A century after a devastating volcanic eruption forced Iceland's inhabitants to abandon its shores, the island has become enshrouded in legend. But the truth behind the legends is mechanical, not magical - and the mystery of the island a matter of life and death for a community of women who once spilled noble blood to secure their freedom. Five years ago, Annika unwittingly endangered that secret, but her sister Källa took the blame and was exiled. Now Annika serves on an airship, searching for her sister.

    Story

    I think my previous two reviews stand for this book. The premise of the story is still just awesome but again it was predictable. The narrator although different still didn't keep my attention as much as I would have liked and I am not sure if it is the narration or the story. I am thinking the story. Still very worth the credit and I will get the next book in the series.

Ruthless and cunning, her only loyalty is to her ship and her crew-until one man comes along and changes everything....

    Story

    Much like the first book but with another set of characters we met in the first book. A fairly predictable love story and again the narrator was ok but for some reason I did rewind a fair bit just to check I hadn't missed anything. In other words, she wasn't keeping my attention riveted and I wandered.

    Still kept me interested enough to read the next book. Well worth the credit.

    Story

    I have never read(listened) a(to a) book like this. The concept is great, the story was a little predictable however and the narration was 'ok'. I did find I was rewinding and listening to things again as I felt I may have missed something. Other than that, again..the concept...Parallel universe HELLOOOOO, I did go on to listen to the other two books and I don't regret using the credit!
    I also downloaded the kindle short stories.

    It's been months since Brian Sinclair, lead guitarist for the famous rock band Sinners, composed anything. Unable to write the music that once flowed so naturally, Brian is lost without his musical mojo. But when sexy psychology professor Myrna Evans comes on tour to study groupie mentality, Brian may have found the spark he needs to reignite his musical genius. When lust turns to love, will Brian be able to convince Myrna that what they have is more than just a fling, and that now that he's found his heart's muse, he doesn't want to live without her?

    Story

    This is raunchy so don't bother listening if you don't like sex in your stories.

    The narration was a little odd with pauses that I felt were a little too long for comfort. I felt it took away from the ease of listen that I expect from my story tellers now. The voices were fine and otherwise the narration was tolerable enough not to detract from the story too much.

    Regardless I am looking forward to listening to the rest of the series.

    Mercenary Kate Daniels and her mate, Curran, the Beast Lord, are struggling to solve a heartbreaking crisis. Unable to control their beasts, many of the Pack’s shape-shifting children fail to survive to adulthood. While there is a medicine that can help, the secret to its making is closely guarded by the European packs, and there’s little available in Atlanta. Kate can’t bear to watch innocents suffer, but the solution she and Curran have found threatens to be even more painful. The European shape-shifters who once outmaneuvered the Beast Lord have asked him to arbitrate a dispute - and they’ll pay him in medicine.

    Story

    This story just keeps getting better. My only complaint is that it wasn't long enough. I forgot this one was coming and randomly started re-listening to all the other books which took me right to this release, I was SO happily surprised!!!

    I laughed and cried, this was Kate's toughest challenge yet and it was close but to say more would be to spoil it for everyone else..

    Hope you all enjoy it as much as I did!!
