    Alexia Tarabotti, Lady Maccon, has settled into domestic bliss. Of course, being Alexia, such bliss involves integrating werewolves into London High society, living in a vampire's second best closet, and coping with a precocious toddler who is prone to turning supernatural willy-nilly. Even Ivy Tunstell's acting troupe's latest play, disastrous to say the least, cannot put a damper on Alexia's enjoyment of her new London lifestyle.

    Story

    I love this entire series. This author just has a way of making each book different and unique. The story line is a different take on the vampires and werewolf themes and has nice twists. The dry humor is a fun treat and you end up liking all the different personalities. I would rate the whole series as a good listen.

    Story

    While I liked Maria V. Snyder's Study and Glass series more, I still would read this one again. The characters are just as well written and the story line follows a similar pattern but is different enough to be its own. I was thinking this was a follow-up of the Study and Glass series, but there is not any crossover of characters which was my only disappointment. Plus this book has the same great narrator Gabra Zackman as the first Study series. She really does a good job. Can’t wait for the next book!

    The grandson of a Scottish clan laird, Duncan MacTavish is shocked to learn that his other grandfather was an English marquis whose title and London estate he is now required to take on. Worse still, he is engaged to a stranger who has mocked him in public. But his bride-to-be, Ophelia, has been guiding a lovely and witty, if dreadfully inexperienced, country girl named Sabrina through the latter's all-important first coming-out season.

    Story

    This book is a perfect example of why I like this rating system. I usually like Johanna Lindsey. But this book is not one I would put myself through again. I don’t think the reader helped any, she seems popular, but I find her accents very bad and everyone sounds the same, even from book to book. I usually like my stories with nice happy endings where everything and everyone gets their just rewards or at least learns a lesson but it left me unsatisfied. For example, the heroin in the tale finally stands up for herself only to do something really really dumb. To which the hero does something extra stupid and then leaves the heroin in the dust taking the feelings and reputation of another woman over the woman he supposedly loves. WHAT!!! Then the story really seemed to drag when it jumped from one why-would-that-ever-happen situation to another that-is-the-dumbest-answer situation after another in an effort to explain why the characters made the pointless choices they did, but the poor effort made the book choppy. The author seemed like she was just adding things in as a filler to make the book longer. Sort of like this review. :)

    Story

    I like this story, it wasn't a heavy read. The characters were well explained and you get the feel of each. I loved the variety of action and the fact that the author took the time to explain little nuances of Royal life in cleaver little ways. I will be looking into the rest of the series.

    Story

    I loved this story. It had just the right amount of adorability without being sappy. It was an enjoyable, entertaining, light read with a ‘Happily Ever After’ ending. I loved the author’s adaptation of the Cinderella story and the fact that she made it clear this is a fairy tale not a historical novel. The personalities of the characters were diverting and humorous.

    In addition, the narrator did a wonderful job on the voices. I hate it when female narrators make the men sound like dumb oafs when they are supposed to be intelligent and refined. How am I supposed to wish the heroin gets her man when all I want him to do is put on a dunce cap, go sit in the corner and please, please shut-up. I hope the others in this series are just as good – I can’t wait to get started!

    The day Cannie Shapiro, a savvy, intelligent, plus-sized pop culture reporter, opens up a national women's magazine to find out that her ex-boyfriend has been chronicling their ex-sex life is the day her life changes forever. Good in Bed celebrates the courage of the human spirit and introduces you to a heroine you'll never forget.

    "Funny and Sad"
    Overall

    First, this was a great book. Very well written and thought out. Characters were very understandable and you felt them. It just was not what I was expecting. I thought it was going to be really funny and the beginning was (I needed a funny book at the time.) However, about 1/3 or half way thru – it became pretty sad and ended that way but for the last minute of the book. Don’t get me wrong, I couldn’t put it down. I kept waiting for the fairytale ending. It has a little one but this is more like a real life novel than a romance fairytale. So if you want a good afternoon read and can just sit and listen and experience, this is the one for you. But if you are looking for something while you are trying to have a good time, save this one, but do have a listen – it was very worth it.
