    It's 1825 in London, and the two curvaceous and blonde 23-year-old Cynster twins, Amanda and Ameliaare, are desperate to get married. All they need are two fine, strapping gentlemen - preferably with large purses.

    So what do these two lusty young ladies do?They make a visit to the local gaming halls, of course!

    Overall

    Normally I love her books, but I could hardly get through this one. 80% of the book was filled with long drawn out descriptions of love scenes. I found myself fast forwarding through these as they were just too over the top dramatic in nature and very repetitive. The story itself could have been told in just a few hours and lacked a real plot or interest until the last hour or so of the book.

    The Emerald flew across the seas, carrying the pirate Pagan - despised by the ton, whose riches he plundered, and beloved by the poor, whose plight was eased by his gifts. The Marquess of Cainewood vows to hunt down the pirate wretch in revenge for his brother's death. But when Jade, an enchanting vision of rippling red hair and eyes of jewel-green, appears at his door to beg desperately for his protection, the Marquess agrees to keep her safe from the villains who want her dead. Jade is infuriating, exasperating, and gorgeous; Caine is noble, strong-willed, and powerful. No woman has ever befuddled him so, nor so deeply aroused his desire.

    I normally like Julie Garwood's books but this was so awful I couldn't get past the first 40 minutes. My dislike of the characters and the story was made worse or perhaps caused by the awful narrator - so whiney sounding. Give this book a pass.

    For a 2,000-year-old Druid, Atticus O’Sullivan is a pretty fast runner. Good thing, because he’s being chased by not one but two goddesses of the hunt - Artemis and Diana - for messing with one of their own. Dodging their slings and arrows, Atticus, Granuaile, and his wolfhound Oberon are making a mad dash across modern-day Europe to seek help from a friend of the Tuatha Dé Danann. His usual magical option of shifting planes is blocked, so instead of playing hide-and-seek, the game plan is...run like hell.

    Story

    Each of the Iron Druid books is better than the previous leaving the reader obsessing about the release date and content of the next. Will Ragnarok begin in the next book? Will Oberon and Orla "hook up" and how will the excellent narrator Luke Daniels voice her? So many questions to be answered. So write faster Mr. Hearne, your devoted fans are waiting!

    Long ago, Susan Rodriguez was Harry Dresden's lover-until she was attacked by his enemies, leaving her torn between her own humanity and the bloodlust of the vampiric Red Court. Susan then disappeared to South America, where she could fight both her savage gift and those who cursed her with it.Now Arianna Ortega, Duchess of the Red Court, has discovered a secret Susan has long kept, and she plans to use it-against Harry.

    Overall

    Once again Jim Butcher delivers a gem with non stop action and plot twists guaranteed to keep you glued to your headset. And the ending! Holy cow - talk about your cliff hanger. I hope Butcher is busy writing because I can't wait for the next book.
