    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.

    Story

    I really enjoyed the second book in the series. The first 20% of the book is available for free on the internet. I like the way J. Frost keeps Vlad and Leila true to their characters. Vlad is a mid evil alpha male who is use to people following his wishes without question. Leila is a modern women with a big heart. She has no real concern for her own safety and is not going to take orders from her lover. Vlad made it very clear when he first met Leila that he could never love her. Leila falls in love with Vlad anyway. Leila tries to renegotiate the relationship with Vlad. Vlad can not make any commitments to her beyond making her part of his line as a vampire. Leila decides one sided love is just too painful to live with for a life time as a human or a vampire. She walks out on Vlad. He lets Leila go without much of a fight. Perhaps he thought she was bluffing. Vlad just does not understand the independent, modern woman. Leila does leave and Maximus helps her stay safe. Ultimately Leila and Maximus are kidnapped. Vlad rescues them and brings them back to the castle. That is when the fun really begins!

    Things become very hot between Vlad and Leila. Leila ultimately realizes that Vlad does love her. She confronts Vlad with it. He actually does say those three little words to her. Once Vlad realizes he loves Leila, he has to decide what he wants to do about it. Vlad has to be in the driver's seat so he makes decisions without discussing them with Leila. It is so Vlad. There is a lot more that happens. They have to figure out who is attacking Leila and why. They also have to figure out who they are as a couple.

    This book is action packed with so many twists and turns that I could not put it down. The book ends with a cliff hanger. I can not wait for the final book in the series.

    Nicola Marter was born with a gift. When she touches an object, she sometimes glimpses those who have owned it before. When a woman arrives with a small wooden carving at the gallery Nicola works at, she can see the object’s history and knows that it was named after the Firebird - the mythical creature from an old Russian fable. Compelled to know more, Nicola follows a young girl named Anna who leads her into the past on a quest through the glittering backdrops of the Jacobites and Russian courts, unearthing a tale of love, courage, and redemption.

    Story

    I loved this book. There are two love stories being told at the same time. It wraps historical romance during the 1715 rebellion with a more current look at love and relationships. The historical portion of the book was well researched. Anna finally learns that things are not always as they appear. She is able to finally follow her heart rather than her pragmatic mind. She has the potential of a happily ever after. In current times, Nicola finally accepts who she really is without worries of what other people will think of her. Her grandfather made her so afraid to embrace who she really is that it takes a lot for Nicola to finally be herself. Nicola is also finally open to her real feelings and able to embrace love. I liked Rob the best. He is confident, patient and at times sneaky. He knows the entire journey for the firebird is really about his relationship with Nicola. Fun read. It is worth a credit.

    The time has come for one winner to be crowned. When she was chosen to compete in the Selection, America never dreamed she would find herself anywhere close to the crown - or to Prince Maxon's heart. But as the end of the competition approaches, and the threats outside the palace walls grow more vicious, America realizes just how much she stands to lose - and how hard she'll have to fight for the future she wants.

    Story

    I liked the third book. The end was predictable. However, I like the way all of the loose ends got tied up. America still has trouble talking about how she feels and that causes problems for the couple through out the book. Maxon comes into in his own in this books by making his own decisions with less concern for his father's wrath. It is a fun listen.

    A renowned rake, Cameron Mackenzie doesn't care if Ainsley Douglas has a virtuous excuse for sneaking around his bedchamber. He only cares that she's at his mercy. One kiss at a time, he plans to seduce her. But what starts out as a lusty diversion may break Cam's own rules.

    Story

    The second book in this series was so bad that I returned it. The only time I have ever returned a book. I took a chance and got book 3 of the series. I am so glad I did!

    Lord Cameron was painted as such a selfish man in the prior books. It turns out he is just a traumatized man afraid to be hurt again. Ainsley is such a good woman. She transforms him back to a whole loving man. I liked Cameron's bad boy attitude and the way the two main characters bantered. It made for some humorous situations. I also liked Cameron's son, Daniel. He tried to pair Cameron and Ainsley together from the start.

Her Ixian background has changed her in many ways, and her newfound friends and relatives don't think it's for the better....

    Owen is the organizer of the Montgomery clan, running the family’s construction business with an iron fist - and an even less flexible spreadsheet. And though his brothers give him grief for his compulsive list making, the Inn BoonsBoro is about to open right on schedule. The only thing Owen didn’t plan for was Avery MacTavish... Avery’s popular pizza place is right across the street from the inn, giving her a firsthand look at its amazing renovation - and a newfound appreciation for Owen.

    I felt like it was a home depot lesson. Too many descriptions of the renovations. Predictable but sweet. I like the cranky brother better. :-)
