    It bit: New York hotels cost an arm and a leg, and Terri had flown from England to help plan her cousin's wedding. The new in-laws offered lodging. But they were a weird bunch. There was the sometimes chipper, sometimes brooding Lucern, and the wacky stage-actor, Vincent. (She couldn't imagine Broadway casting a hungrier singing-and-dancing Dracula.) And then there was Bastien. Just looking into his eyes, Terri had to admit she was falling for him.

    Fun! Simple and light. Well balanced on the emotional aspects of the characters. Believable enough to enjoy!!

    Jo Goodman's best-selling novels of romance and adventure unite brave, beautiful women with their charismatic soul mates.Tempting Torment tells the breathtaking story of Jessa Winter and Noah McClellan. In 1787, desperate to leave England, Jessa marries the mortally wounded Noah expecting to become his widow and escape to America. But she hasn't counted on his will to survive - nor his desire to make her his wife in body as well as name.

    Overall

    It took me a while to get into this book but once I did, it was worth it! The heroine's devotion to doing the right thing and the hero's determination to see things through helped me hang on too.
    I will give another one of her books a try.

    "I look like an all-American grad student. But I am a werecat, a shape-shifter, and I live in two worlds. Despite reservations from my family and my Pride, I escaped the pressure to continue my species and carved out a normal life for myself. Until the night a Stray attacked."

    Alexis says: "Loved it!"
    "It's only passable."
    Overall

    It's okay. I would not waste the time or the credits if you have something else to listen to.
    Standard rebellious girl out to prove to her family and the world that she does not want or need them! She is wrong, as they usually are! The heroine's opinion of the females who choose a more traditional role in her society is simply, disdain!
    The basically hopeful ending is only mildly satisfying. I went on to the second book and wished I had not!!!
    Don't bother! Read the second half of Wuthering Heights instead.

    "Okay, so cats don't always land on their feet. I know that better than most. Since rejoining the Pride, I've made big decisions and even bigger mistakes: the kind paid for with innocent lives. As the first and only female enforcer, I have plenty to prove to my father, the Pride, and myself."

    Stephanie says: "WONDERFUL."
    "Huge Disappointment!!!"
    Overall

    After the first book "STRAY", I thought I would give Vincent one more chance to earn my approval. She disappointed in the biggest way!!
    I have no problem with a strong heroine who has a mind of her own and wants to do her own thing but the author goes too far with her extremes!! On one hand you have the females of their society who embrace the HONOR they are given and they are seen by the heroine as weak, mindless, and without ambition. Then because of their weakness they are victimize in such brutal ways, while the heroine is still smart enough not to be victimized as far as the others. On the other hand, the heroine is adored by a man who has proven over and over that he loves her and is devoted to her but she continues to push him away because she doesn't want to be under the authority of him or any other man!! What an unhappy selfish brat she proves to be!!! Making the male characters out to be neanderthals is foolish!
    It is with disgust that I finished this book! I almost couldn't stomach the effort! What a waste of my time and money on this one!!!
    I can only hope that Ms. Vincent isn't of a similar character with this heroine! If so, she has my sympathy! I am a Daughter, Wife, Mother, and a business owner. My husband loves and respects me and supports my business efforts.
