    An angel with immense power and insatiable desire, Adrian Mitchell leads an elite Special Ops unit of the seraphim. His task is to punish the Fallen - angels who have become vampires - and command a restless pack of indentured lycans. But Adrian has suffered his own punishment for becoming involved with mortals - losing the woman he loves again and again. Now, after nearly 200 years, he has found her: Shadoe, her soul once more inhabiting a new body that doesn’t remember him. This time he won’t let her go.

    Story

    This is the second story I have listened to by this author. I didn't like the first book and thought it was because of the similarities to Fifty Shades of Gray. But after listen to this book I have now decided that it is the author's writing style I don't like. The plot had potential but the story was so wrapped up in personal angst, that the plot was forgotten and only touched apon briefly. It was a chore to get through this book. I couldn't wait for the book to end.

    This was a simple but entertaining Whodunit. I like the angle of being broke and royal. I will be continuing on with the series. Just finished this one and have already purchased the next. I enjoyed all the characters and the story line.

    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.

    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.

    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.
