    Once upon a time, Elise Sutton had been a powerful witch and paranormal enforcer. Once she'd been madly in love with Fae lord Aidan Greene. But when Aidan had considered his duties more important than their relationship, the love affair ended badly. Shortly after, while on the hunt for a rogue demon, Elise was brutalized and almost killed. Months later, she gave birth to a baby girl. To protect her child, and her heart, Elise decided to live a nonmagical life - - until she meets Aidan again....

    Story

    First off let me say this book was so bad I couldn't finish it. The author sets the main character (Elise) up as being the most loving mother ever. But after a few sexual encounters with a former love, Elise forgets she is trying to recover her kidnapped child and is only concerned about her love interest. I realize there should be suspension of disbelief for the reader, but that is going to far. This storyline stinks so bad I can smell it from here.

    No matter how much the paranormal politics of Atlanta change, one thing always remains the same: If there' s trouble, Kate Daniels will be in the middle of it. As the mate of the Beast Lord, Curran, former mercenary Kate Daniels has more responsibilities than it seems possible to juggle. Not only is she still struggling to keep her investigative business afloat, she must now deal with the affairs of the pack, including preparing her people for attack from Roland, a cruel ancient being with god-like powers.

    Story

    I really enjoy this story line. Every character is this story is a strong character. This book is a continuation of Kate Daniels struggle. She finally meets her father and she determines that her life should be hers and she should live it the way she wants and not how others want her to live. I think there is a moral in there somewhere.

    Mafia enforcer Aleksandr "The Siberian" Sevastyan's loyalty to his boss is unwavering, until he meets the boss’s long-lost daughter, a curvy, tantalizing redhead who haunts his mind and heats his blood like no other. Ordered to protect her, Sevastyan will do anything to possess her as well - on his own wicked terms. PhD student Natalie Porter had barely recovered from her first sight of the breathtakingly gorgeous Sevastyan before the professional hit man whisks her away to Russia, thrusting her into a world of extreme wealth and wanton pleasures.

    Story

    I do not like BDSM stories. I have suffered through the first 2 in this series and cannot even finish this one. I really like Kresley Cole but this story line is terrible. Everything is weak, weak female character, weak story line, just plain weak. I couldn't even finish it.

    This is just a continuation of The Professional story line. Much the same as the first book. Not good and seeming to get worse by the minute.

    Story

    Ok, so BDSM books are not my thing. I don't like how some of these books, have female characters that are so weak willed. This book is no exception. This book has been in my library for a long time and I should of just left it there. I love Kresley Cole and have listened or read all her other books. In my opinion this is not to her usual standard.

    Agent Franks of the U.S. Monster Control Bureau is a man of many parts - parts from other people, that is. Franks is nearly seven feet tall and all muscle. He's nearly indestructible. Plus he’s animated by a powerful alchemical substance and inhabited by a super-intelligent spirit more ancient than humanity itself. Good thing he’s on our side. More or less.

    I have like every other story in this series. I just cannot seem to get into this book. The battle scenes are almost too descriptive, I find that I cannot concentrate through all of the non- ending fight scenes. I really like Franks but this story doesn't really do him justice.

    "My name is Mike Ross. I'm a Ferryman. I help people with ghost problems, or ghosts with people problems. Funny thing, no one ever helps me with my problems. Civil War ghosts bent on killing me, Skinwalkers who just want my body, and a vindictive spirit linked both to my bloodline and my destiny... It turns out the dead still hold a good deal of influence over the world, and they don't want to give it up. I'm in way over my head. Fortunately, I'm too stubborn to quit."

    Enjoyable listening, funny and entertaining. This one had been on my wish list for a while now. I wish I would of listened to it earlier. The main character seems to be a somewhat average guy, then comes the seeing ghosts. After that the troubles of being young, injured and poor, doesn't seems to be that bad.

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

    Story

    After much eye rolling and heavy sighs, I have decided to turn the book off. I just cannot do it. Weak female lead. I like almost everyone else in the book but the main character. Wishy-washy with a side of princess complex, that is the main character in a nut shell. I think the Narrator is good, her talent is wasted on this book.

    I just could not get into this story. Like so many other mysteries, the main character seemed based on Sherlock. I did like the "butterfly effect" aspect of this book. The character's were not well developed but the story line was ok.

    Funny and thought provoking is how I found this book. I was listening to it in public and had to stop, I was getting strange looks because I was laughing out loud. There was also some philosophy that I found interesting, it was there without being preachy. This is the second of A. Lee Martinez's books I have read, I will be listening to more. Very entertaining.
