    At thirty-two Dev is "mostly retired" from Raines Investigations, content to run operations from his sprawling Arizona home. But Dev has never been able to say no to a beautiful woman, so when Lark Delaney comes to him for help, the former U.S. Army Ranger from Wind Canyon gets back in the game.

    The back and forth attraction that builds between Dev and Lark. I like the fact that Lark is a strong determined woman. Self made and doesn't just drop her goals for the man of her dreams. And Dev willing to go to the wall for Lark, not trying to change her but not willing to let her off the hook about the attraction between them. The romance is hot but not overly graphic. This is a good romantic read.

    New York book editor Maris Matherly-Reed knows a best seller when she sees one - even if it is just a tantalizing partial manuscript submitted by a writer identified only as P.M.E., with the return address of an obscure island off the Georgia coast. Maris is intrigued enough to search for him.

    Talk about a book that draws into a story. From the start the book has you hooked because you want to hear the story within the story. I have listen to several Sandra Brown books and what is enjoyable is the story telling. And yes if you will most likely figure out who is who in this tale, but it the why of it that won’t let you walk away for the tale. This easily is one of my favorite Sandra Brown books.
    Victor Slezak at first I found his narration some what annoying, so it was the story that kept me engage. But he has a style of his own and he grows on you. Similar to Jim Frangione narrations. Not the greatness job doing female voices, but the way he reads engages you. If you like a romance with some mystery and depth this is a choice.

    Finally a strong female lead. Alpha males, who enhance the storyline instead of dictate it. And a good start to series. You'll find yourself involved with the secondary characters and the desire to hear their story. Romance is not over top. If you enjoy a fast easy listen for the entertainment of an action love story, then I recommend the book. If you are looking for the next best seller, a super great mystery or an erotic feast, this may not do it for you. I just like the fact of strong female leads that don't bend. Gillian Vance is new for me but does a great job.

    Leila's psychic abilities have been failing her, and now she isn't sure what the future holds. If that weren't enough, her lover, Vlad, has been acting distant. Though Leila is a mere mortal, she's also a modern woman who refuses to accept the cold-shoulder treatment forever - especially from the darkly handsome vampire who still won't admit that he loves her.... Soon circumstances send Leila back to the carnival circuit, where tragedy strikes.

    The second spin off from the Cat and Bones series. What I enjoyed most about this book is Kira and how she handles one of the most power vampires within this paranormal world. What comes out of this book is a wonderful love story. The ending is a little lame but still the overbook is worth read.

    A spin off from the Cat and bones series this one doesn’t disappoint. IF you enjoyed meeting both Spade and Denise from the previous series. Then you will most likely enjoy this romantic sexy and strange tale. There is romance humor action and adventure that makes this one an interesting listen from beginning to end.

    Half-vampire Cat Crawfield and her vampire husband, Bones, have fought for their lives, as well as for their relationship. But just when they’ve triumphed over the latest battle, Cat’s new and unexpected abilities threaten to upset a long-standing balance.

    With the mysterious disappearance of vampires, rumors abound that a species war is brewing. A zealot is inciting tensions between the vampires and ghouls, and if these two powerful groups clash, innocent mortals could become collateral damage.

    I realize some relationships have their ups and downs but for Cat and Bones, I found myself in this one saying come on. Enough is enough. I mean really don’t these two deserve a break. Which I suppose that is what J Frost wants us to feel? Frustration and exhilaration. Again if you enjoy this couple and all the characters in their world then this is another good installment.

    Since half-vampire Cat Crawfield and her undead lover Bones met six years ago, they’ve fought against the rogue undead, battled a vengeful Master vampire, and pledged their devotion with a blood bond. Now it’s time for a vacation. But their hopes for a perfect Paris holiday are dashed when Cat awakes one night in terror. She’s having visions of a vampire named Gregor, who’s more powerful than Bones and has ties to her past that even Cat herself didn’t know about.

    What can I say if you didn’t like the first three books then don’t bother? But if you have become a fan of the crazy ongoing relationship of Cat and Bones then climb on board for the ride. Because a ride you’ll get. This book comes down to choices for Cat and Bones and with any stormy relationship with fiery personalities there are all of those outside challenges and influences that make that choice more intense.
    Yes this worth a credit

But though Cat’s worn disguise after disguise to keep her true identity a secret from the brazen bloodsuckers, her cover’s finally been blown, placing her in terrible danger.

    You can run from the grave, but you can't hide. Half-vampire Cat Crawfield is now Special Agent Cat Crawfield, working for the government to rid the world of the rogue undead. She's still using everything Bones, her sexy and dangerous ex, taught her. But when Cat is targeted for assassination, the only man who can help her is the vampire she left behind.

    This second installment doesn’t fail but actually exceeds expectations. Just when book one left you with “I can’t believe it” book 2 starts you off with come on I know something is going to happen. And of course it does with Bones coming back full force back into Cats life. And this he is playing for keeps. Cat has many decisions to make but Bones is definitely her man. Hot sexy scenes take up into intense relationship that is the core of Cat and Bones. This series is full of adventure and plenty of action that has wanting to know what is next. Yes yes yes use a credit or buy it is worth it.

    This is one of the best starts to an awesome paranormal romantic action filled series. Cat is a tough as nails heroine and Bones is bad with a heart of gold.

The heated relationship between Cat and Bones relationship is full of challenges and danger but beyond that we are taken into a different vampiric world with twist and turns that leave you wanting more. Yes this is definitely worth a credit.
