    Peter Decker of the L.A.P.D. never dreamed he'd be spending his honeymoon with his new wife, Rina Lazarus, in an Orthodox Jewish enclave in Brooklyn, New York or that a terrible event would end it so abruptly. But a boy has vanished from the midst of this close-knit religious community, a troubled youth fleeing the tight bonds and strictures he felt were strangling him. The runaway, Noam, is not traveling alone. A killer has taken him under his wing to introduce Noam to a savage world of blood and terror.

    Was excited when I saw this series on the summer sale. First three books for $3.95 each, what a deal! Purchased book one and started it right away thinking if I like it to get the others during the sale.

    UGH, I don't like it.....there is something about the writing and narration that is off putting to me. The story seems shallow and the narration does not help that. Not saying the narrator is bad it's the combination maybe.

    I love PNR but these dragons are not my thing. My recommendation try it only on sale.

    Lauren Wilder fell for the wrong man, trusted the wrong man, and she paid a very dear price for it. Now broken and wounded, she's retreated to the bosom of the Colter family and the unshakeable love and support they offer. But the man she once loved and trusted is not without his own power, and he'll use every bit of his money and resources to make sure he gets Lauren back, no matter whom he destroys doing it. Liam and Noah were hired by Lauren's brother to watch over her. But with danger looming, they head to the Colorado mountains - where Lauren has found temporary sanctuary.

    This was good. Wish the series would continue. I need more! Would like to have more details of how Lauren, Liam, and Noah life goes. Also, really would like to hear more details on the rest of the family!

    Narration is great. This book is worth a credit.

    Although the English king tried to wrest it away, the Highland Targe - ancient relic and protector of Scottish lands - still lies safely in the hands of clan MacAlpin. But for how long? Jeanette MacAlpin trained her entire life to become the next Guardian of the Targe, but that duty has now fallen to her cousin Rowan - a duty Rowan can't seem to master. Fearful for her clan's future, Jeanette seeks the solace of a sacred wellspring, and there encounters tawny-skinned Highland warrior Malcolm MacKenzie.

    Loved the first book. This story started right where the first left off. Though I liked, it was a bit predicable. It left me thinking that I know exactly how book three will go. I would recommend that you wait for book three and get them all on sale.

    As soon they are released, Amanda Quick’s romances shoot to the top of best seller lists. With over 22 million copies of her books in print, she is one of today’s hottest authors. Set in Regency-era England, Mischief offers a sparkling mixture of wit and intrigue that has become Quick’s trademark. Beautiful, headstrong Imogen Waterstone has recruited the darkly infamous Earl of Colchester to help her seek revenge for the murder of her best friend. As they set a trap for the villain, Imogen and Colchester fearlessly encounter the threats and dangers that come their way.

    If you want a historical romance with a cute heroine this is it. The story is not deep, not a lot of sex but, I liked it. Barbara Rosenblat was a little theatrical in her narration but it fit the story. Good sale book. Don't know that it is worth a credit.

    Delle Jacobs is a new author for me, I will definitely be downloading more from her.
    Sarah Coomes narration was very good.
    The book was not just about two characters but really touched on many of the Celt villagers and Vikings.
    Got this book on sale but would spend a credit on another book from this author.

    Most girls might think twice before getting engaged to someone like Reyes Farrow - but Charley Davidson is not most girls. She’s a paranormal private eye and grim-reaper-in-training who’s known to be a bit of a hell-raiser, especially after a few shots of caffeine. Her beloved Reyes may be the only begotten son of evil, but he’s dark and sultry and deeply sexy and everything Charley could hope for. Really. But when the FBI file on Reyes’ childhood happens to land into her lap, she can’t help herself: She opens it...and then the real fun begins.

    I am sorry, can't wait for book seven!!! I am sorry book six was not longer!
    Charley Davidson is great! Unlike some of the other reviews to me book six did NOT disappoint.
    Darynda Jones is a great author! Lorelei King does Charley wonderfully. The beginning of each chapter is always a treat, I love the sayings.
    There was a lot going on in book six. My plan is to listen to book six again before book 7 or maybe re-listen to the whole series (it's that good). This is not a series you want to start in the middle, start with book 1 and enjoy!!

When sinister forces unite against her, the Highlander finds himself using all his strength and skill to keep her alive. Temporarily stripped of her powers, Mari is forced to take refuge with her sworn adversary. Soon passion burns between them.
