    As a healer, he knows her body. But it's her heart he wants. For a thousand years, Gideon has healed his people. And as the oldest surviving male of his race, his wisdom has always been respected without question. But Gideon knows that even he is vulnerable to the powerful, primitive desires that befall his kind during Hallowed moons---and nine years ago that truth was hammered home when he found himself claiming Magdalena, the Demon King's sister, in a wild embrace.

    Story

    I love Lana, but Gideon is just soooo in control that it makes me a little angry. Finally this book brings the less controlled Gideon. I have to say though, he is nothing like Jacob. Gideon keeps his imprinting under control. I guess being an Ancient has something to do with that. Another part of the prophecy is being fulfilled... I don't understand though why it hasn't driven him mad, because he and Lana have been imprinting sense Jacob had to punish him. Lana got stronger, but Gideon, should he be mad by now. Whatever, still great book. Great listen. This book just fell right in step. I think Jacob is way way better, but this book is more of a character/world of nightwalkers builder. I think the only major plot point revolves around Beth and Mary, the demons that betray the other demons. However, this is a must if you are gonna invest into the Nightwalker series. Still, worth a credit. Good Read/Listen... promise!!!

    Jesse Sampson and her two younger sisters have lived a hard life on the streets of Seattle, Washington, for the past several years. Four years before, the Earth received its first visitors from space, causing mass fear. Alone in a world gone mad with just her sisters, Jesse has learned to use the darkness and the remains of the city to survive and keep what was left of her family alive. She has seen the savage side of human nature and finds they are not much different from the aliens who conquered the Earth.

    Wow! I totally enjoyed this book! It was extremely well written for an alien romance! Right from the beginning of the book, there is action, as Jesse (main h) tries to rescue Hunter from her people... humans that has captured him... Jesse is injured but she has to make it back to her sisters! The first chapter kept me listening, and the book just got better and better as Jesse and her sister made their way to the new alien planet...

    Nice smexy time too! Very romantic story... a simply good listen. Well worth a credit, buy or sale..

    Narration was great! Brenin did female voices pretty well...

    I like this book. It was really good. Full of action and adventure... I liked how Bas, the vampire, couldn't mind warp Park, the female lead. Park was all like "wait, you can't kidnap me..." while Bas was like "why isn't my mind warp working...." it was funny.

    I like how the story played out. It was interesting to see all the pieces come together, and see the battles with the bad guys play out to.

    Now the end... I am bit upset about what happen to Bas and Park's father's friend... Seriously... WTF!!!

    This is worth a credit or sale. It's a bit pricey...over 10 bucks so I wouldn't recommend for a buy.

    Narration was pretty good. Not wonderful but not horrible either.

    So good... This series is going to be simply awesome...book after book...

    Like with book one... you don't expect such an awesome story....maybe the cover throws you off a bit...but dang... this book just continued on where book 1 left off...well 3yrs later...as Angel has a 3yrs daughter who is causing terror... lol...

    This story is about Angel's second in command Sebastian... Oh my... I feel so sorry for Bastian and all he has been through... only to find his true mate again... and this time around he is not letting her go!!! Jessica is tormented by nightmares, and when she ask the goddess to let her dream about something else...like the man of her dreams... well...lets just say she got her wish...

    Jessica and Sebastian are great...but it was the secondary characters that I loved in this one... I cannot wait to get to Jacques' story... Boy that is gonna be a good one...

    Narration was good.. no complaints...

    This is a good credit, sale or buy... well worth it...

    A number-one romance/suspense best seller on Amazon, from USA Today best-selling Author Nora Flite

    If you hated your life and wanted to prove to the world that you could change, how would you do it?

    I had a plan. I also had no family, no friends, and definitely no jerk of an ex-boyfriend who thought I was boring.

    I was tired of being me.

    In Vegas I could be anything.

    This was good...but dark... I guess... I mean he did kidnap her... so.... IDK...

    I really didn't like the female lead... she was just so... IDK... boring... lol... I mean she goes to vegas to prove to who? No one that she isn't boring when her boyfriend who owns a food stand breaks up with her and fires her at the same time...

    There she meets the male lead...he is rich, smart, sexy but dangerous... he drugs her... kidnaps and what does she do...she is pissed because he is making her the perfect bride for someone else... Ummmmm... he kidnapped you... how about let's hate him on principle... he is a kidnapper...but nope... Our girl is mildly upset over this...but she shows real anger when she learns she will be the perfect bride for someone else...

    Now saying that... the book redeems itself in the end... I enjoyed the Russian gang war (kinda) at the end...

    Maybe not a re-read...but worth a buy or sale...

    If nothing else is out there... go ahead and spend that credit... it is enjoyable...

    Narration was pretty darn good... Very relaxing voice...

    I'd always been different. I saw objects in the night where others saw emptiness. Large, human-shaped shadows, fierce yet beautiful, melting into the darkness. I collected secrets like other women collected bells, afraid to trust fully lest my oddities be exposed.

    Story

    Ok... this was different...

    I like the story...but the cliffhanger ending was so expected... since I still don't know what the main characters are!!! There has to be a book 2, if not... then this story was simply incomplete.

    So...the basic jest of the story is Shasha is unlike other humans in that she can sense shadows...or rather people in the shadows... She can see what "normal" humans cannot. Which we find out later, that Shasha unlike other humans can use magic. Seveyn is the "boss" or rather the leader of a group of a different race of humans. Seveyn's race is where the vampire legend comes from.

    The story is confusing in that there is no name for Seveyn's race... what do we call him... so Shasha calls him a vamp...but is he? Then what is Shasha?

    So... there is a lot of action and a fight scene when a rival (Seveyn's race) of people attack...but Shasha uses too much magic and ends up killing up the bad guys, but now she has to drink Seveyn's blood..which causes a bond... But wait... Shasha and Seveyn already have a bond!!! They are mates...which Seveyn nor Shasha have yet to figure out..

    Don't get me wrong...this story was very good, and well worth the credit, buy or sale... I just feel incomplete... Only one smexy time between Seveyn and Shasha...but Shasha does get it on with her ....wait for it..... BOYFRIEND.... lol.... Luke... and Seveyn bangs this crazy b*tch once.... but IDK... like I said... this was a great story... very promising...but the ending... Geez.... at least tell me what my main characters are...

    Seriously... this is totally worth a buy, credit or sale...

    Narration was pretty good... No complaints...

    King Grim Vasteri is the strongest and most feared warrior in the Tornian Empire. He is the King of Luda, blood brother to the Emperor, and his line will die with him.

    Wowza! This book was so dang good....

    Ok... if you have ever read one of my reviews...you know I hate dual narration.... UNLESS it is done like this book... Female reads female parts and male reads male parts... This was so good... but this book had a little something extra that I am just not use too... SOUND EFFECTS!!!!

    I must admit at first...I hate it... the birds chirping and the hum of the spaceship was driving me batting...but by chapter two...when someone knocked on the door and you hear the knock first then the narration...well I must admit, it really made this book stand out... I fell in love with it... It was amazing... so kudos for this brilliant version of narration and sound effects...

    No on to the review... GRIM... I so want a GRIM... Although he was scarred from a battle he won against 8 other warriors, Grim was looked upon as "not worthy" to mate due to his scars... Oh, did I mention he is KING GRIM... but nope, he got scares so the snoody women of his planet didn't want him. So when Grim has to go find mate(able) Earth women because his brother the emperor's new wife accidentally told of her home planet...Grim is in luck! He forces Lisa to mate with him in order to pick up her girls which were left back on earth... She does, because there is no way she was leaving her girls...

    OK.. this is when the story picks up, because WOMEN are special, as they are rare on Grim's planet... Now King Grim has got three!!! Man this book was so darn good... I can't wait for book 2 to come on Audible...

    Narration was Amazing!! So enjoyable... Credit well spent...

    This is a buy, sale or credit... Great book!

    Book 1: Great story about a boy who hates water because of a tragic accident that kill his parents... but somehow he becomes different from that experience.

    Book 2: Great continuation.... now we are finding out what is happening to Gabriel... but the professor.... dude... what is up with him?

    Book 3: AWESOME!!! Finally we get some back information about Gabriel, the Mers and the settlement... But that Cliffhanger ending... C'mom.... when is Gabriel going down in the sea and meet his family down there? Seriously...

    I hope there is only one more book.. because I am ready to meet the Mers!!!

    Great narration... Awesome buy, credit or sale for all three books!
