    "I am Meredith, princess of faerie, wielder of the hands of Flesh and Blood, and at long last, I am with child twins, fathered by my royal guard. Though my uncle, Taranis, King of Light and Illusion, claims that he is the true father since he abducted me from my home, betrayed, and defiled me. And now he has branded my guards as a threat to my unborn children."

    "Tastey Morsel"
    Overall

    I had resigned myself to having to be patient with this narrator after reading previous reviews. I had credits to burn and didn't want to drop cash on a hardbound book. However, I found myself pleasantly surprised. Granted, some of her pronunciations are a bit different, and I agree that Merry should speak with an American accent.
    I have always loved this series and wasn't disappointed in this new installment (it ISN'T the last book-check the author's blog). Lots of plot, a few tasty erotic moments, and great character development made for a fast paced read. If you're still enjoying this series, this will not disappoint. Tasty morsel!

    Travis Parker has everything a man could want: a good job, loyal friends, even a waterfront home in small-town North Carolina. In full pursuit of the good life, including boating, swimming, and regular barbecues with his good-natured buddies, he holds the vague conviction that a serious relationship with a woman would only cramp his style. That is, until Gabby Holland moves in next door.

    "an emotional tug"
    Overall

    While I did, in the end, enjoy this book at times it felt like the author was putting me through emotional extortion. He is tricky in his use of wording, so as to keep the reader constantly guessing where the end of the plot is going. He wrings every drop possible out of you and, at times it is annoying. The main part of the book is a very enjoyable love story. So, if you are up for an emotional roller coaster, go for it! The character development and setting are great. The narrator is very good. I'll look for him again in the future. Finally, I can't imagine anyone doing justice to this story in an abridged version. So, if you do listen to it, enjoy the long version.

    Story

    War with their archrival, the evil Ansara clan, is unavoidable. For Mercy Raintree, a war means she must assume her position as guardian of the Sanctuary: the sacred Raintree home place deep in the Smoky Mountains. But doing so threatens to disclose her most prized secret, one Mercy has kept to herself for six years.

    "A disappointment"
    Overall

    After enjoying the first two books in the Raintree series I was really
    looking forward to this book. It would hopefully bring all of the
    characters together for the final showdown. The story had lots of
    potential but, it just didn't live up to it. While the narration was
    good again, the hero and heroine just lacked chemistry. When they
    finally do come together sexually it is a forceful, brutal, and
    antagonist. I cringed at some of the wording used; it seemed like more
    of a rape than intense passion. Additionally, Mercy's brothers are
    hardly in this novel even though the reader is left hanging at the ends
    of novels one and two. I must admit that I finished the book. I had to
    find out what happened but, I am disappointed that this series'
    potential just wasn't fully realized. If written by one of the two
    previous authors, I think this could have been superbly delicious. Also,
    the child Eve could be way too annoying at times and, was used too
    heavily as a means to bring her parent's romance along. I'd rather see
    this done through good development of the characters so that it really
    works for the reader. Finally, the graphic violence of the final battle
    was over the top at times for my taste; a trend a really don't like
    seeing in my chic novels.

    Only a very wicked woman would stop for a hitchhiking cowboy. But Lauren Baker is no good girl - not anymore. Playing it safe never got her anywhere, except alone and broke. So when sexy Brett Wallace asks for a ride to a nearby hotel, she knows it's time to get naughty.

    "an entertaining fluff read"
    Overall

    This had good narration and likable characters. It makes for a nice summer chic fluff read. My only complaint is that it went by so quick.
