    After 700 years of life, Marguerite Argeneau finally has a career. Well, the start of one, anyway. She's training to be a private investigator, and her first assignment is to find an immortal's mother. It seemed simple enough, until Marguerite wakes up one evening to find herself at the wrong end of a sword. Now she realizes she's in way over her head.

    Sorry, loved the book, but the narrator's 'breathy' voice is just not sexy.
    I do think that even though Marguerite is supposed to be a 700+ year old vampire, she is supposed to look only 25-35 years old and have a body the same. The narrator may have been better to have made Marguerite's voice more commanding rather than of an older woman's.

    A better book than the first one. The story line is getting expanded and keeps getting interesting. Worth listening to.

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    Story

    I've been a long time reader of erotic romance and a long time listener of Audible and have bought lots of different types of audio and printed editions of assorted books.
    I did have a hard time reading and listening to the story, being in the immediate present. Not something one is used to in romatic literature. But I did give this book a chance and kept at it. I have now read the full series - twice and listened to the full series three times. I love the books, yet I am willing to admit the writing is not as good as I have seen before. Forget about the writing, the present tense and just enjoy the story.

Then she's captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unlikely partnership. In exchange for help finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She's amazed she doesn't end up as his dinner…are there actually good vampires?

    One of the best series, I've ever heard! I have since started to read the books and am even getting around to reading shorts that Jeaniene has written.
    For those who get a kick out of English Accents, this book has two great accents.
    Tavia's Bones (Crispin) is just great! I got a kick out of Spade's (Charles) accent too. For those who didn't get the accents - I'm fron London, England and I found Bones' accent authentic. The changes of accent were really good.
    Jeaniene Frost is a fantastic writer, but I have found other authors that i have loved and the narration has ruined the book for me.
    Please don't change this narrator - she does an excellent job.
    Jeaniene can't wait for the next book!

    Loved this book and the narrator was perfect for it too!
    Well written and well read.
    You can always tell which person was talking - always a help with an audio book.
    Great!

    Okay, so jogging through Central Park after midnight wasn't a bright idea. But Margrit Knight never thought she'd encounter a dark new world filled with magical beings, not to mention a dying woman and a mysterious stranger with blood on his hands. Her logical, lawyer instincts told her it couldn't all be real, but she could hardly deny what she'd seen...and touched.

    Deborah says: "Entertaining if formulaic"

    I loved reading this book and loved the narrator too. Her voice was perfect and you always knew which person, in the story, was talking.

    Vampires don't exist...do they? Inez Urso is beginning to have her doubts. Her business associate Thomas Argeneau has some interesting traits, like an allergic reaction to the sun, excellent night vision, and not much of an appetite for food. And to top it all off, he just tried to bite her neck...but maybe that was a sign of passion. If so, she'd be happy to experience more, despite her determination not to mix business with pleasure.He's been waiting forever for a woman like her...

    This is probably my favourite Lynsay Sands book read so far!

    Samantha Willan is a workaholic lawyer. She’s grateful for some rest and relaxation in cottage country, and after a recent breakup she wants to stay as far away from romance as possible. Then she meets her irresistible new neighbor. There’s something strange and mysterious about his eyes. Is it just her imagination, or are they locked on her neck?

    I really like Rick Robertson reading the Lynsay Sands books.
    He certainly has a lovely sexy voice which really does help!
    Even though he doesn't really emphasis the charactors alot, you can still tell who is talking.
    Rick Robertson really does justice to Lynsay Sands books.
    As I have read all the books and heard all those
    on Audible so far, I hope Audible has the sense to keep Rick Robertson as the narrator to all the books.
