    An unlikely state of affairs. For Navy SEAL Lucky O'Donlon was the original love-'em-and-leave-'em guy. Used to women swooning at his feet. So how could it be that the frustratingly attractive journalist Sydney Jameson had nothing to offer him but one very cold shoulder? Well, two could play at this game. But first things first - he and Sydney had a job to do. They had to get their man. Then there would be time enough for him to get his woman.

    Elizabeth Livingston = Hillary Huber. Thought the voice was familiar, so I went back to compare to one of Lara Adrian's books. Same voice.

    Audrey Parker is up against the boards. She's stuck in a job she hates and pining for a total jerk. Meanwhile, her sister Fallon is moving out and getting married to hockey star Lucas Brooks. Where is Audrey's Prince Charming? Nothing she does has ever seemed to be good enough for any of the men in her life. Audrey's about to hit rock bottom...until she wakes up next to Tate Odder.

    Story

    The story wasn't bad, but as a lifelong hockey fan, a couple of things were like nails on a blackboard. The accents were bad to start with, but Patrick Roy's name does not match the Roy in Roy Rogers, and Vezina does not rhyme with Messina. The accent is on the first syllable, not the second. Those jolted my ear enough that I actually had to stop, back up and listen again to be sure what I was hearing.

    Number-one New York Times best-selling author Charlaine Harris has won numerous awards for her Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampire series, which has been adapted into the hit HBO show True Blood. In this 13th and final book, a murder rocks the town of Bon Temps and Sookie is arrested for the crime. After making bail, she sets out to clear her name - but her investigation only leads to more deaths.

    Story

    This is what happens when a writer drags out a series. Sookie should have been put to rest a few books back. Publishers do their authors and readers a disservice when they try to extend a series just because it's selling well. Harris just plain ran out of steam. Too many characters and plot elements were brought in without good reason. Too many things were predictable. Characters were not true to their prior behavior. I should have saved my money on this one.

    The stranger silently summoned her from across the continents, across the seas, whispering of eternal torment, of endless hunger... of dark, dangerous desires. And somehow American surgeon Shea O'Halloran could feel his anguish, sense his haunting aloneness. Drawn to the far Carpathian Mountains, Shea found a ravaged, raging man, a being like no other. And she trembled. For in his burning eyes she recognized the beloved stranger who'd already become part of her. But was she to be his healer... or his prey?

    Abby Craden does a much better job on this than Juanita Parker. Parker always sounds like she's reading to children.
