    Homicide detective Angela Keen thrives on the city’s rough streets. But when she becomes the prize of all prizes in the dragon-shifter world, due to her “high-energy” status, she gets more than she bargained for. Kidnapped by Lothair of the Razorback clan, Angela barely survives captivity before managing to escape. Hurt and alone with nowhere to hide, she faces certain death when Lothair uses the trace energy she leaves in her wake to hunt her down. But before he can reach her, a mystery dragon-shifter intervenes and saves Angela’s life.

    Story

    Loved this series, the banter between the guys is great. There has been rumblings about its similarities between BDB, but let's face it when boys get together that's what they do. All these dragons have adorable characters.

    This story dealt with a tricky subject with a lot of care , kick ass and serious come uppance. The narrator has done a wicked job, he's really improoved his Scottish accent for Forge. My only dissapointment is he didn't give Wick the awsome old London accent he gave him in book 1. Apparently he was found there back in the day. That said its killing me waiting for the next installment. There is going to be serious drama in the bad guy camp at the loss of such a powerful second.

    Ric Van Holtz is more than he seems, nothing you expect-and everything you want...When it comes to following her instincts, former Marine Dee-Ann Smith never holds back. And this deadly member of a shifter protection group will do anything to prove one of her own kind is having hybrids captured for dogfights. Trouble is, her too-cute, rich-boy boss Ric Van Holtz is making it real hard for Dee to keep her heart safe. He's wanted the fiercely independent she-wolf from day one, but he never expected their teamwork to be so explosive.

    Story

    Each book gets better an better, Charlotte Kane brings the characters to life like no other. Her narration is awsome awsome awsome! The story is so funny in places - Loch dragging lions about, said lions whining about being 'hungry'. To touching when Des's cub was threatened, and then there was the remarkable Hannah - who knew.

    I'm glad audible gives a sample because the latest short stories by Shelley Laurenston are too horrible for words. Especially since Charlotte has already introduced us to Van and Irene, Eggy and Miss Darla. The 4* reviews are for the book which is seriously misleading - why are they there anyway when you want the audio reviews???? The stories sound like they are being read by the dead! Flat and lifeless don't waste your credits. I listened to the samples as I said and realised why Eggy and Dee say "time to start the killing"

    Ellie is horrified to discover the pharmaceutical company she works for is doing illegal experiments, splicing human and animal DNA, creating exotic new species. One such "experiment" captures her heart and she’ll do anything to save him - even if he hates her for it. Fury has never known compassion or love. He's spent his life in a cell, chained and abused by humans. The one woman he allowed himself to trust betrayed him. He vows to end her life but when she's finally in his grasp, harming her is the last thing he wants to do to the sexy little human.

    Story

    Read the books and knew they would be awesome on audio - and I wasn't disappointed. I never enjoyed Lora Leigh because all the women had to be 'dominated'. But these big strong sensitive characters are so different. The New Species women are great - blunt and funny. The testing facility was unreal and the 'gifts' were heart breaking. Can't wait for more - keep them coming.

    He doesn't have a name. He doesn't have a clan. The humans who held him prisoner for 40 years have taken them away. He knew nothing but captivity until nearly a year ago, when he was released into the light. Now Tiger lives in the Austin Shiftertown, where he struggles to belong and searches for an identity. Carly Randal thinks her fabulous life is complete - until her car breaks down on the side of the road and the only one around to help her is a wild-looking Shifter. Tiger takes one look at Carly and knows instantly that she will be his mate. As Carly is drawn into Tiger's Shifter world, she risks everything she has for that forbidden something she still wants.

    Story

    I loved these shifter stories but this one is my favorite. After being found in a cage, then liberated Tiger nearly ends up losing it all. The other shifters were all too willing to end his life or force him back into a lab. And a corrupt millitary officer wanted to use him as a weapon, breed from him then disect him. But his acts of heroism, his mate and help from the least expected source, in the form of another soldier originally out to hunt him, kept him free and put an end to treachery. He had his happy ending with a good mate and a cub on the way. It was a great story. I wonder if the next story will come in the form of a certain female bear and Tiger's soldier friend??? I wasn't a fan of Chris Dukehart's narrations because her accents weren't all that, but they have really improved.

    Shelly Laurenston turns up the heat with two sizzling novellas. Christmas Pride: How come all the good-looking ones are insane? That's what runs through NYPD cop Desiree "Dez" MacDermot's mind the minute she hooks up again with her childhood buddy, Mace Llewellyn. Shaw's Tail: Brendon Shaw, hotel owner and lion shifter, has seen better days. He's been beaten, had a gun to the back of his head, and had to be rescued by a Pack of shape-shifting wolves.

    Story

    I nearly didn't get this book mainly because the offerings from her alter ego G A Aitken were horribly narrated, and got on my last nerve by the end of the first chapter! But this is seriously good - Dez is something else. A woman you don't mess with. Mace is Mace and all laid back Lion. And I just love Smitty and Sissy Mae, and I can't wait to meet the rest of the Smiths, and the Van Holtz, the African Wild Dogs, the hockey team and Bears plus the other odd animals and the few humans who get caught up in the mayhem. The characters are quirky and crazy just as I imagined they would be. Charlotte Kane narrates the story so well - you can tell who is who , and the accents are great. I love the way Dez keeps losing hers - lol. I'm only part way through and am getting ready for Charlotte to do the next ones in the series. If the rest turn out as well as this they will be awesome.

    Poppy and Win what a pair. The epitomy of a proper cultured Victorian couple with secret lives - and when it blows up, fireworks or should I say snowstorms. Poppy won't let anything stop her - even pregnancy. Win nearly pulls his hair out because of it. The trick to thwart the demon was inspired. It was great to see the sister's and their respective husbands come together, burying old hurts and form a support system. Book 4 is Talent's story, I hope there are more - possibly for the sister's lost brother. Moira Quirk was fantastic as usual she really brings the era to life.

    A great book - what an amazing story between the lively Daisy and the tormented Ian. It nearly had me in tears when Ian thought Daisy was dead. Poor thing. The introduction of the gimps was another new species with interesting possibilities. I love Kristen Calihan's storylines with all its twists and turns. I'm getting into the historical stuff. Moira quirk didn't dissapoint and actually did an awsome Scottish accent - not the usual horrible attempts from some narrators, that are like nails on a chalkboard to my Scottish ancestry. I can't wait for book 3. I will definitely relisten to this series.

    Story

    Wonderful story. It took a while to get into but once there I was addicted. The author did her homework with Victorian England. The story was different from the norm and displayed very proper etiquette and manners of the day. This means control and quiet to the point of being staid. Perfect Victorian behaviour where loudness and excitability were definitely frowned upon by the upper classes. The street slang was perfect and the fight with soul demon was wicked. I loved Miranda's strength and fearlessness and Archer's fight with himself. Moira Quirk was the PERFECT narrator, with culture and fitness. I got the next two even before finishing this one. I had to find out what happened to the sisters.

    Story

    I just loved this story, its not for the sensitive. The sex scenes and dirty talk might put some off. But it didn't worry me. Both characters are strong minded, strong willed and fierce, so floaty frilly bedroom scenes wouldn't have worked. Tarryn had me in tears with her snarky comments. The bit with the elephant, then calling the stupid she wolf an STD but best of all was telling Greta to pull her lip over her head and swallow. It was too good.

    Both characters have dealt with their respective traumas and its moulded them into shifters not to be underestimated. The pack members are a cohesive unit but filled with delightful characters.

    The narration was seriously good too, Suzanne Wright has another book in this series, plus some vamp offerings. I hope these get recorded. I can't wait.

    If you loved Bewitched, Charmed and Murder She Wrote you will love this. This modern young witch tries so much to be caring and normal but life just seems to want to rail road her into chaos between murders and romance. Plus Oscar is soooo cute. For those into spellwork the authenticity is awesome. I usually go for 'Twilight for big girls' but this series had me so hooked I had to get the rest. Plus it was narrated by Xe Sands who I love (another plus), who knew she could be so light hearted. I can't wait for book 5, I will definitely pre-order when it arrives. Definitely worth a credit.

    I wasn't too sure at first and only got it out of curiosity, but boy am I glad I did. This is so different from her dragon series, although she does sneek in the odd similarity it doesn't detract from the overall style. It's really classical, detailed and historical. I was hooked and the narrator was awesome - what a good choice. I hope she gets to do further offerings. I do like the use of (good) accents and was disappointed by their lack, but she captivated and held you without the need. For me that is a sign of a job well done. I loved Coreen Callahan's other series, but this shows her versatility and the ability to use completely different writing styles. I will definitely get more.
