    "It's hard to be a badass assassin when a giant is beating the crap out of you. Luckily, I never let pride get in the way of my work. My current mission is personal: annihilate Mab Monroe, the Fire elemental who murdered my family, which means protecting my identity, even if I have to conceal my powerful Stone and Ice magic when I need it most."

    Story

    This book was like another book 1 in that it was the beginning of very important issues that will be dealt with in the future--New war, new relationship, new family, new friendship etc. This book is a really good set up for the next books in the series.

    Book 3 picks up where book 2 ended. The narrator continues to weave this suspenseful tale as Elliott Slater was still being a terror and Mab Monroe was still letting her flunkies bully everyone. Elliott came and beat up Gin at her night school (Ashland Community College). He threatened her life and the people around her. Obviously he doesn't know Gin Blanco, because the Spider doesn't let anyone push her around or hurt the ones she loves. So Gin Blanco and Elliott Slater finally have their showdown--a prelude to the war with Mab Monroe.

    On another note, Gin has to rescue Rosalyn and make some decisions regarding Owen Grayson. We finally get some very important events that shaped the life of the successful business man and they make sense now. I like the direction this story is going and I can't wait to hear Tangled threads.

    This audio book kept me enthralled for 3 days. It had humor, sadness but most of all, realistic depiction of characters. I'm not sure what I was expecting or hoping for in the end but the story telling was gripping. Im not sure we needed the other characters POV as they didn't add anything for me, but this story was powerful. I'm impressed with the writing and will check out other work by this author.

    A couture wedding dress designer to the rich and famous, Lexi LaCroix's image means everything. Raised on the wrong side of the tracks, her years of polish and hard work are finally about to pay off. But crossing paths with a sexier-than-sin, bad-boy biker who makes her realize how much living she's sacrificed for her success, one touch is all it takes for Lexi to turn reckless. Jax Chamberlin has been screwed over by gorgeous gold-diggers one too many times. Though he runs his own stunt company, all of America knows his Hollywood face even years after he's given up acting.

    Narration was good but couldn't save this story because sex and celebrity talk overshadowed everything. I kept picturing Lexie as Kim Kardashian and Jax as Kanye West. Nothing good could ever come from that imagery.

    Fredrik Gustavsson never considered the possibility of love, or that anyone could ever understand or accept his dark and bloody lifestyle - until he met Seraphina, a woman as vicious and blood-thirsty as Fredrik himself. They spent two short but unforgettable years together, full of lust and killing and the darkest kind of love that two people can share. And then Seraphina was gone. It's been six years since Fredrik's lover and sadistic partner in crime turned his world upside-down.

    Story

    This one was the darkest yet and I had to put it down periodically. I knew Frederik would be a tough character to get to know but his book made me uncomfortable.

    This book featured Frederik hunting his wife Seraphina and he kidnapped a girl named Cassia to force her to give him information that would led him to his wife. After torturing her and getting no good information, Frederik found that torturing others in front of her yielded better results. So he forced her to watch.

    This is when I decided that I will part ways with the series after this book. I will finish it out since I dont like DNFs but these sort of dark romances/stockholm syndrome books don't agree with me.

    I will say the 2nd half of the book was much better as Frederic got good info and was able to get the answers he needed. The writing was good but I am just too much of a flower and candy romance reader to get down with this.

    BTW, the new narrator was AWFUL. He was another issue that added to my discomfort but the subject matter didn't make me feel warm in my snuggie.

    Leader of the vampire clan MoonBound, Hunter will do what he must to save his people from extinction-or worse, a torturous eternity as vampire slaves and subjects of human experimentation. To keep his enemies at bay, he has agreed to mate a rival clan leader's daughter in return for peace between the clans and an ally in the looming war with the humans.But survival comes at a price. First, Hunter must break an ancient curse by successfully negotiating three deadly tests.

    Story

    I enjoyed this book better than book 1, but there is still something missing for me.
    In this sequel, Hunter, chief of MoonBound clan has to fulfill the bargain he made in book 1, to marry the daughter of a rival clan. While Hunter wasn't looking forward to mating Rasha, as a leader, he had to create alliances as the human attacks on vampires continue to increase.

    Rasha travels to her new clan with her twin sister Aylin as a decoy in case they come across trouble. Aylin is disposable since she has a limp, and she is a second twin who should have been drowned according to clan customs. When the group came under attack, Hunter was able to rescue the princess and they spent some time getting to know each other. Imagine Hunter's shock when he learned that it was actually Aylin, not Rasha that he has been spending time with at the hidden cabin.

    The contrast in personalities is vast as Rasha is just awful and Aylin is so sweet. I did find that cliche that the beautiful one was rotten inside and the deformed sister was a gem inside. But it put Hunter in a quagmire--does he do his duty or follow his heart?

    The length of time it took to resolve this triangle, coupled with the dangling issues with Mine and the traitor left me unsatisfied.

    The world building in this book was much better and more interesting. The origins of the clans, seeing some of the individual's abilities such as Aylin's gift was a good touch to this story. I will continue the series but I wasn't wowed by this one either.

    Meet FBI Agents Emma Monroe and Zack Armstrong. She's cursed. He's damned. Together, they make one hell of a team. Emma Monroe is a Siren, cursed by the gods and bound to earth to atone for an ancient failure. She’s had many names and many lives, but only one mission: redemption. Now that she works missing persons cases for the FBI, it could be just a rescue away. Unless her new partner leads her astray.

    Story

    I loved the narrator as Sookie Stackhouse and it took me a couple of chapters to forget Sookie, but once it got going, I really enjoyed her as Emma & Zack.

    FBI agents Emma Monroe and Zack Armstrong are investigating a series of missing persons. The only connection seems to be the missing persons are closet vampires (the public is unaware of vampires).
    Emma is a Siren and Zack is werewolf. So they have to rely on the supernatural nature to solve this crime but it is definitely a complicated case. Then throw in the fact that you have a sexy seductress with a carnal shape-shifter and sparks are flying everywhere.

    I found the writing to be smooth and the story very interesting. It wasn't heavy on romance at all, but focused on the solving the crime. Emma was a likable heroine who did her best to act like a human and respect the human way of life. Zach was also likable as he tried to find his place in both the human and shifter worlds. I like how the author didn't make Book 1 overly complicated and heavy with world building. Some authors use book 1 as an information dump and it makes the book boring. I think after introducing us to characters, the authors can then use book 2 to give us more background and delve more into their past. I will definitely be continuing this series.

While Win's uncles, Jim and Teddy, are determined to make Sage and the entire Redding family pay for their loss, Win just figures Sage has paid his dues and maybe needs a friend. Maybe he needs more than a friend. In fact, Win's counting on it.

    A hand-picked cadre of warriors, they had the fierce courage of their Scots forefathers, combined with the stealth and cunning of the Indians who lived beside them in the wilderness. Battling the French in a no-holds-barred combat, they forged a new brand of honor, became a new breed of men - MacKinnon's Rangers. Iain MacKinnon had been forced to serve the British crown, but compassion urged him to save the lovely lass facing certain death at the hands of the Abenaki. He'd defied his orders, endangered his brothers, his men and his mission, all for a woman. But when he held Annie's sweet body in his arms, he could feel no regret.
