    Dani "Mega" O’Malley plays by her own set of rules - and in a world overrun by Dark Fae, her biggest rule is: Do what it takes to survive. Possessing rare talents and the all-powerful Sword of Light, Dani is more than equipped for the task. In fact, she’s one of the few humans who can defend themselves against the Unseelie. But now, amid the pandemonium, her greatest gifts have turned into serious liabilities.

    Story

    Iced is being held as the 6th fever book or the first book in the Dani O’Malley series. KKM promised that there will be two more Dani books (Burned and Flayed)…I can only imagine what is to come.

    I think this series is starting off much like the Fever series did (Dark Fever, first book) and KKM. I like the way the author takes time to really introduce each character and to let the reader get to know them. At first glance this may seem like slow development, but for me it helps me to become vested in the characters. In The Fever series Dani was a supporting or side character and Mac was the main character with Barrons being an ever present factor. In Iced, Dani is the lead and the others are revolving around her. There is much more to this girl that I ever expected. Dani is 14 years old, but this is not Young Adult Reading. Let me repeat, not Young Adult Reading.

    After listing to a few chapters I was totally hooked once again. By the end of the story KKM sinks her hooks in deeper. I am already wishing the next installment of the series was out.


    As always I was totally captivated by the combination of Phil G. and Natalie Ross as narrators. They have narrated several of the other Fever books that I have seriously enjoyed and this one was no different. I have to be honest, I find myself searching for other books that these two have narrated either as partners or as individuals. I have not been disappointed yet.

    I am so glad I purchased his book, I loved it! I just want more!!!!! This one gets 5 stars from me!

    Everyone in Rosemary Beach thinks they know how Rush Finlay and Blaire Wynn fell in love. But Rush is back to tell his side of the story... Rush has earned every bit of his bad-boy reputation. The three-story beach house, luxury car, and line of girls begging for time between his sheets are the envy of every guy in Rosemary Beach, and Rush handles it all with the laid-back cool of a rock star’s son. All he needs are his best friend, Grant, and his sister, Nan.

    This was steamy hot and so good! Makes me want to find myself a bad boy! I have just fallen in love with the folks in Rosemary Beach. I am telling you...you will not be able to stop with just one book from this author she is totally awesome! I just can't get enough. The minute a new book comes out I get it...usually have it on pre-order!!! I started this one about 1:00am just to hear a bit. Almost did not get any sleep. Finally I had to get a few minutes of rest, and started again with a cup of coffee and making breakfast. I don't what was hotter or sweeter my coffee of Rush! You will just have to get this one and find out. This was worth my money!

    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 have not written a review in a long time. I could not wait to write this one. Rachel and Trent are finally together and this book has set the stage for an epic ending to the series. Every thing has come full circle. Too sad this is only going to be 13 books in this series and this is #12. This is a great listen and I am about to start round two. I listen to this book in 2 days it is that good. I totally loved the introduction of the new elements. I can't say I can pick a favorite book in the serious because I have been hooked from the start. Not only to is listen to the audio but read the books as well. The audio adds a wonderful element. The narration is on point and this makes it hard to but this book down. There are a few authors that I just have to take a vacation day to enjoy the books and Kim Harrison is one of the authors for me. This book did not disappoint!!!!! What else can I say, this is so good and Trent is so sexy! Wow!

    It's Christmas in Half-Moon Hollow and newly turned vampire Iris Scanlon-Calix wants to make Gigi's first visit home from college as normal and special as possible. It's taken months for Iris to work up the nerve to spend time around her baby sister after her vampire transition, so she enlists help from Jane Jameson and Company to keep her blood-thirst under control and assure Gigi's safety. Gigi, on the other hand, has problems of her own, including the demise of her relationship with high school sweetheart, Ben, and a looming job interview with Ophelia Lambert, the scariest potential employer in the Hollow.

Most of all I want to know who the cute vampire was that surprise kissed Gigi. OK, I am going to have to purchase book 2 because Half Moon Hollows book 2.5 was terrific. Thanks for the Christmas gift.

    Story

    I absolutely love a story where the heroine is strong, independent and realistic. Faith has all of those qualities (Girl Power) and flawless. In fact I just wanted to shake her at time. Faith is no wimpy girl. She can kick some serious butt. Now add into that that this story has romantic elements and a sexy male lead (well there are several very sexy male characters) and bad guys that you just love to hate. There are two very sexy guys who want Faith and she has a choice to make. This alone would make a great story line, but these folks are shape-shifter: werecats. If you like authors like Karen Marie Moning (Fever Series), Kim Harrison (The Hollows Series) Christine Feehan, well let’s just say you are going to love Rachel Vincent and this series. I actually purchased this a while back and listen to it while waiting on the releases from some of my favorite authors. Now Rachel Vincent is one of favorite authors. This book gets 5 stars from me and I have several of my friends reading this series now! Did I mention that I have actually listened to this at least two or three times, it’s that good!

    Bella Andre, has done it again. This one is a hit with me. This story starts out smoking hot and I don't mean the heat from the fires. This story also develops into somewhat of a surprise for me. I expected a great romance, but what I did not expect was suspense or a crazy killer on the loose. I could not put this one down.

    Maya Jackson is the female lead who is immediately attracted to the hot sexy Logan Cain. These two have a brief encounter and six months later, they meet again and sparks really start to fly. It was really fun seeing the physical attraction between Maya and Logan turn into to something deeper. I am about the listen to this one again, it’s that good!

    Nestled on the Oregon coast is a small town of rocky beaches and rugged charm. Locals love the land’s unspoiled beauty. Developers see it as a potential gold mine. When newcomer Hank Cooper learns he’s been left an old friend’s entire beachfront property, he finds himself with a community’s destiny in his hands. Cooper has never been a man to settle in one place, and Thunder Point was supposed to be just another quick stop. But Cooper finds himself getting involved with the town. And with Sarah Dupre, a woman as complicated as she is beautiful.

    I have become a fan of Robin Carr. If you liked the Virgin River series you will like the world of Thunder Point too. Carr has a way of mixing romance and a great story and I have come to expect this from her novels. This one is no exception, the wright amount of character development and hot steamy romance to make me wish the next installment was already available for download. Therese Plummer shines as the narrator and made this audio come to life. She is really great with the male and female voices. Sometimes a narrator can kill a good story, Plummer just adds to this one. In my opinion Carr and Plummer are a great match. I promise you will love hearing about Sarah and Cooper who are the main characters. Then there are several side supporting characters with equally blooming romances. I just can't say enough I loved this one.

    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.

    OMG, I can't believe this book was so good. I was on On The Edge of My Seat. Panting and totally captivated. This is definitely a 5 Star Listen! I have been waiting a long time for Rachel and Trent to come together. Rachel is powerful and together Rachel, Trent, and yes Al; well let’s say there is no stopping them. Finally a lot of the questions were answered about the origins of the Elf’s and the demons. The only negative thing I can say is that the next book is not ready for download. I can’t wait, I want more. Kim Harrison’s Ever After is outstanding. The Narration, by Marguerite Gavin brings this story to life. No one could have done it better.

    Tall, dark and eligible? That’s all that matters to the women of Jacobsville when it comes to handsome and aloof FBI agent Jon Blackhawk. But if it were up to him, he would never settle down. Luckily, Jon has the best gatekeeper: his efficient and reliable assistant, Joceline Perry. Without her help, he’d be at the mercy of husband hunters — but the more he comes to rely on her, the more he notices how invaluable she really is....

    Typical but good. I like this because I can trust that a story by Palmer will not disappoint. I have wanted to hear the story of Jon Blackhawk for a while now. So glad I took the time to get this one. Jon is tall, dark, sexy and sweet. Sometimes life is stranger than fiction so I could really buy into the premise of this story. Jon and Joceline have one night of passion, but Jon does not remember. Joceline has been keeping a little secret for year from Jon, but finally the truth will come out and its love and happiness for this couple. I found it to be an enjoyable and touching.

    The hardheaded Armstrong brothers are determined to rebuild their tornado-ravaged hometown in the Georgia mountains. They've got the means, they've got the manpower...what they need are women! So they place an ad in a northern newspaper and wait for the ladies to answer their call. Porter, the youngest Armstrong, is all for importing women. Still, he's so blown away by the sheer numbers, he falls off the water tower. Luckily, there's a doctor among the newcomers - sweet and sexy Dr. Nikki Salinger.

    I am so pleasantly surprised. I loved it. The Armstrong brothers are totally hot. This story is somewhere in between Robyn Carr's Virgin River series and some of Debbie Macomber’s early work about the guys in Alaska who were building a town. I absolutely love how Stephanie Bond develops the lead male character; Strong, sexy, vulnerable, and lots of appeal. Who falls in love with the new female doctor in town. This story is cute and light hearted and just what you need to make you smile. I can't wait to get the next one. I hope they can rebuild this beautiful town. Narration was superb.

Now, with the time ripe for battle, his men are ready and Ewan is poised to take back what is his-until a blue-eyed, raven-haired temptress is thrust upon him. Mairin may be the salvation of Ewan's clan, but for a man who dreams only of revenge, matters of the heart are strange territory to conquer.

    Story

    I have not been so excited about finding a new series in a long time. I have much love for the Highlander romances and this one is terrific. Ewan McCabe is the oldest brother. He meets and falls for Mairin who is the illegitimate daughter of the king. Mairin has been in hiding for most of her life. Ewan's clan has been devastated. Mairin has prized property and the finances to save his clan. It’s not love at first sight but it gets very steamy for these two on the road to the happy ever after. I also liked the danger and intrigue which added an additional layer to this story. One of the most touching elements is Marin’s relationship with Ewan’s son from his first marriage. I totally loved this story and I am hooked. Can’t wait to get the rest of the books and hear the stories of the other brothers which were hinted at in this story. This is a promising new series and honestly I was hooked after the first 30 minutes. Great story, great characters and great plot and the narration is outstanding. I am a Maya Banks fan now! I have listened to this one 2 times already. ****Five Stars****
