    For almost two years now, Kiera’s boyfriend, Denny, has been everything she’s ever wanted: loving, tender, and endlessly devoted to her. When they head off to a new city to start their lives together - Denny at his dream job and Kiera at a top-notch university - everything seems perfect. Then an unforeseen obligation forces the happy couple apart. Feeling lonely, confused, and in need of comfort, Kiera turns to an unexpected source - a local rock star named Kellan Kyle. At first, he’s purely a friend she can lean on, but as her loneliness grows, so does their relationship. And then one night everything changes....

    This my first book by S C Stephens and it was a welcome surprise. I will be looking for her first book Effortless, hoping it is just as good.

    How can it hurt so much to protect the one....s.... you love.

    Witch and day-walking demon Rachel Morgan knows magic - earth, ley line, even the forbidden demon magic - and that knowledge has saved her life more than once. But now something - or someone - is attacking Cincinnati and the Hollows, causing spells to backfire or go horribly wrong while living vampires attack humans and Inderlanders alike. The pressures build when the city is quarantined to contain the unreliable magic, and Rachel must stop the attacks before the undead vampire masters who keep the rest of the undead under control are lost and it becomes all-out supernatural war.

    I love how much Rachel and Trent grow and find they really can trust each other. There are endless possibilities for their future. Ivy is realizing she can be the person she always wanted to be. Jenks.....they still can't survive without him thank goodness. Everyone owes Rachel after this and I can't wait to see what they get into next!

    Love the new Couple!

    In that first volume, we were introduced to the remarkable world of Roshar, a world both alien and magical, where gigantic hurricane-like storms scour the surface every few days and life has adapted accordingly. Roshar is shared by humans and the enigmatic, humanoid Parshendi, with whom they are at war.

    Beginning with The Skystone, the first in his riveting Camulod Chronicles, Jack Whyte has embarked on an ambitious and remarkable re-telling of the Arthurian cycle, giving us a fresh and compelling take on a story that has been beloved for centuries. The Eagle brings us at last to the heart of the tale, the creation of fabled Camelot and the love story that enshrined its glory. Whyte takes us into the minds and lives of Arthur, Guinevere, and Lancelot, three astonishing but fallible people who were bound together by honor, loyalty, and love.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: An all-time Audible favorite that mixes historic fiction, adventure, and romance with one of the most fascinating literary devices: time travel. Outlander introduces an exhilarating world of heroism and breathtaking thrills as one woman is torn between past and present, passion and love. In 1945, former combat nurse Claire Randall returns from World War II and joins her husband for a second honeymoon. But their blissful reunion is shattered....

    This Series is Exceptional. Davina Porter is an Excellent Narrator and her voice is perfect for the subject matter.

    I recently read a 1 star review on the book and was Astounded! I almost took it personally, that's why I am writing this review.

    As with Most Great Books their are some slow spots. Some people have a hard time getting through the first chapter of this book. It's ALL background information you need for later! It's the set up that makes this book work! Have Patience!

    You need to know the history of Clair and Frank. You need to know she was a war nurse and healer before the time of Antibiotics. She was an Orphan who lived a nomads life with her Uncle on Archeological Digs . Otherwise she would not have survived what happened to her. You need to know there had been such a long separation from Frank, and their marriage was still very new. You need to know he was older than her, loved her but was a bit arrogant, condescending, and a bit controlling. You need to see some of the current history, and superstitions so all of the pieces come together. It's all reference.

    You are given all this information because Diana Gabaldon was by trade a Research Analyst. She knows how important the little details are. Her stories are so detailed she brings people and places in history to life for us. So yes there are some dry spots, but I would find myself thinking "Oh that's how it happened" as the details all clicked into place. It might not show up until the end of the book or even in another book but it is necessary.

    This book lays the foundation for an Amazing Series. If you don't take the time to read the floor plans you will miss an Amazing Ride through history and what it was really like to live in the time. She didn't sugar coat it like they do in most time pieces, you get the disturbing truth. MOST OF ALL .........You will miss the Love Story of Jamie and Clair which is timeless, it is aching, it is heart rending, it is sexual, its Love as it is meant to be. Every woman wants their own Jamie.

    So do yourself a favor and get through the first chapter and you will fall in love with the series too.

    Number-one New York Times best-selling author Charlaine Harris has won numerous awards for her Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampire series, which has been adapted into the hit HBO show True Blood. In this 13th and final book, a murder rocks the town of Bon Temps and Sookie is arrested for the crime. After making bail, she sets out to clear her name - but her investigation only leads to more deaths.

    Story

    Most of the Long Time Fans of Sookie have read or listened to the series more than once. So if you were paying attention to more than the Sex Scenes...... all of the clues were there. We all knew where this would end, and Charlain Harris has done a Great Job of pulling up all the loose ends.

    Forget all the crap in the internet and sour grapes, this is a Good Book. We watched an Innocent Sookie take a walk on the wild side with the "Supes", have all of her firsts, and come out whole at the other end, scared but whole. The one thing Sookie was always very clear about was that she would stay Human. It was her Humanity (along with her Fey Blood) that attracted all the "Supes" to her, and the one thing they all wanted to take away from her.

    We learned in the last book that Eric actually Was what Sookie always feared. Eric had used Sookie to his best advantage even though he hid it well, and push come to shove he would let go of her. It was Pam who forced him to be honest with her. In this book Sookie faces facts,and realizes Eric planed to "turn" her and have her as his girl on the side expecting her to give up Everything including her life for him.

    Sookie is forced to dig herself out with the help of her friends. She realizes that her goals for life have not changed from the innocent girl who started this journey. She still wants marriage, children and a normal human life with someone she loves and respects. Sam has always been there, and even though he is a shifter, he is not a "Ware". Same has gone through some big changes since his Near Death Experience and realized he wants to walk away from the wild side. What he wants is a life with Sookie. He even loves her enough to let her go... to keep her safe. So its one final ride with Sookie trying to survive the Supernatural world and Stay Human.

    It woud be nice to have another book with Same and Sookie together......It could happen!

    From best-selling author Anne Rice, writing as A.N. Roquleaure, in the traditional folktale of "Sleeping Beauty", the spell cast upon the lovely young princess and everyone in her castle can only be broken by the kiss of a prince. It is an ancient story, one that originally emerged from and still deeply disturbs the mind's unconscious. Now Anne Rice's retelling of the Beauty story probes the unspoken implications of this lush, suggestive tale by exploring its undeniable connection to sexual desire. Here the prince reawakens Beauty, not with a kiss, but with sexual initiation.

    The ever after, the demonic realm that parallels our own, is shrinking, and if it disappears, so does all magic. It’s up to witch-turned-daywalking-demon Rachel Morgan to fix the ever-after before the fragile balance between magic users and humans fails. Of course, there’s also the small fact that she caused the ley line to rip in the first place, and her life is forfeit unless she can fix it.

    I LOVE where this story went.

    Everyone had to get a little understanding of each other to get past age old hate, to save them all. The world changes for them all anyway. The end of this book opens up a whole new world of options, possibilities and dangers for Rachel and Trent.I hope the Kim Harrison goes there even if it takes Rachel into a different series. It will be sad to leave old friends behind but that makes room for the new. Growth always come at a cost.

    After being caught in the middle of a love triangle which led to a devastating betrayal, Kiera pledged to learn from the mistakes she’d made. She was determined to never again inflict that kind of pain on anyone, especially the soulful, talented man who held her heart. But life offers new challenges for every relationship, and when Kiera’s love is put to the ultimate test, will it survive? Love is easy...trust is hard.

    Once Chime had been the most promising mage in the land, feted and celebrated for her potential and future role in the kingdom. Then Iris, her young competitor, made a stunning leap in skill and turned Chime's world upside down. Now no longer the most powerful, no longer promised to a prince - and still unable to harness her magic properly - Chime was set adrift. As was the new king's cousin - and former heir - Lord Muller.
