    He was a mighty Scottish warrior who lived in a world bound by ancient laws and timeless magic. But no immortal powers could prepare the laird of Castle Brodie for the lovely accursed lass who stood before him. A terrible trick of fate had sent her 700 years back in time and into his private chamber to tempt him with her beauty.

    This one was better than the first two books. The narrator for the men was fantastic. Not so great for the women, but not horrid. The story was fun and sexy. I felt the author did a good job of merging fantasy and reality. This is one I would definately recommend.

    Story

    The narrator is fantastic. The story is just okay, not great but not horrible. However, I don't appreciate a lot of foul language in my books, especially unnecessary bad language and this books has a lot of "F___" bombs in it that don't fit. So because the story was just barely okay and had really bad language I would recommend skipping this one.

    Steven James' Christy Award-nominated crime thriller pits FBI Special Agent Bowers against a serial killer who enjoys torturing women. After visiting the mountain vistas where the murderer posed his dead victims, Bowers receives a taunting call from the "Illusionist." Although Bowers gets close, his insidious foe continues to elude him.

    Story

    The book is a 3/4. It has great villains and the cops are decent. The story developed well with some great twists and wasn't totally predictable. The writer couldn't pull off the heroes humor or coffee quirk though. If it had a better narrator it would have ranked higher. Its not that the narrator did a horrible job, its just that his voice was perfect for the villain who had very few lines, but retched for the hero. The narrators voice turned the image of the hero into a pathetic loser.

    Anna Moder has just witnessed a shooting, seen her car pulverized, and rescued a wounded stranger - only to discover he's really a werewolf. And by her recent standards, things are actually looking up. Lycanthropes don't faze Anna. Doctoring a wolf pack outside Grundy, Alaska, is the closest thing to home life she's known in years. But hitching a ride to Anchorage with long-absent pack member Caleb Graham - that's a risk. Part of her itches to whack his nose with a newspaper. The rest is trying unsuccessfully to keep her own paws off every delicious inch of him.

    I love Molly Harper's whit and writing style. You get great laughs, a good story, fun characters, some passion rather than just straight sex, and a good plot. This one is another winner in her arsenal.

    It began in the graveyard.... Ever since her boyfriend Nathan had died in a tragic accident, Emma had been coming to the graveyard at night. During the day she went through the motions at her prep school, in class, with her friends, but that’s all it was. For Emma, life had stopped with Nathan’s death. But tonight was different. Tonight Emma and her dog were not alone in the cemetery. There were two others there - Eric, who had just started at her school, and an ancient woman who looked as though she were made of rags.

    Story

    I admire anyone who can write a book; however, this one was not only written for young teenagers, but comes across as written by one. Everything, and I mean everything, about this book screams "I was written by a 14 year old;" a novice 14 year old with delusions at that. The book also has horrible language. The plot, the characters, the overall story was very immature, and poorly developed. The narrator was awful and flat as well. I enjoy well written young adult books, but this was not well written. No redeemable qualities in this book.

    Introducing James Bond: charming, sophisticated, handsome, chillingly ruthless, and licensed to kill. This, the first of Ian Fleming's tales of secret agent 007, finds Bond on a mission to neutralize a lethal, high-rolling Russian operative called "Le Chiffre" by ruining him at the Baccarat table, forcing his Soviet spymasters to "retire" him. It seems that lady luck has sided with 007 when Le Chiffre hits a losing streak. But some people just refuse to play by the rules.

    Story

    This is the first James Bond book I have listened to and while it wasn't bad, it really wasn't that great, average at best. It doesn't really follow the movie that close and for me the movie was overwhelmingly better and the characters more complex and deep than the book. Overall, I wasn't impressed and wouldn't listen to another.

    This nationally best-selling novel from Pulitzer Prize-winner Jeffrey Eugenides was adapted into an acclaimed film by Academy Award-winner Sofia Coppola. A haunting yet wickedly funny tale, The Virgin Suicides has captivated countless readers with its intoxicating portrait of lost innocence. A brilliant fusion of dark humor and tragedy, it is an atmospheric, allegorical masterpiece about five oppressed, suicidal sisters and the boys who dream of rescuing them.

    Story

    I don't know what the other reviewers saw in this book, but for me it was horrid. It was boring, simplistic, and just yuck. It was written from a young boys perspective and dealt with him watching these girls grow up and them killing themselves. I did not find it insightful, touching, memorable, or anything beyond a waste.

    In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue - Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is - she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

A shadowy group of ordinary humans, they spend their lives studying Epics, finding their weaknesses, and then assassinating them. And David wants in.

    I was shocked at how much I really like this book. At first I was worried it would turn out to be only so-so, but it totally wasn't. The surprise twists and character development and underlying moral lessons made this a fantastic book. I really hope the author does a sequel to this book soon.

    Nothing sucks the romance out of world travel like a boyfriend who may or may not have broken up with you in a hotel room in Brussels. Jane Jameson's sexy sire Gabriel has always been unpredictable, but the seductive, anonymous notes that await him at each stop of their international vacation, coupled with his evasive behavior over the past few months, finally push Jane onto the next flight home to Half Moon Hollow -- alone, upset, and unsure whether Gabriel just ended their relationship without actually telling her.

    Harper hits it again! The humor she infuses in her stories is a constant delight. This book was another great installment in the Jane Jameson series. The best part is each book grows the series instead of just being a dead weight being used to make money like so many multi-book series. Overall, loved it, would recommend it.

    Lacey Terwilliger's shock and humiliation over her husband's philandering prompt her to add some bonus material to Mike's company newsletter: stunning Technicolor descriptions of the special brand of "administrative support" his receptionist gives him. The detailed mass e-mail to Mike's family, friends, and clients blows up in her face, and before one can say "instant urban legend", Lacey has become the pariah of her small Kentucky town and a media punch line....
