    Katie MacAlister, best-selling author of paranormal romantic comedies, ignites a devilishly lusty story with Light My Fire. The gorgeous Aisling Grey, introduced in You Slay Me, juggles being a demon lord, a Guardian, and a wyvern's mate all at once - though not always successfully. Recently relocated to London, Aisling and her doggie demon sidekick, Jim, are eager for a fresh start. Drake the hunky dragon, however, has other plans for her.

    "Hot and sexy but where's the rest of the series?"
    Overall

    This book feels like Harry Potter meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Well, a Buffy the Vampire Slayer rated R for sexual content. MacAlister's heroine is hilarious as she struggles with the arcane underworld of Europe's demon princes, guardians, wyverns, and other magical folk.

    My only difficulty was that this book seems to be third in a series. When will Audible.com be making the first two books in the series available?

    Katie MacAlister packs heat and humor into her best-selling Silver Dragons series. Here May Northcutt continues her quest to free herself from the clutches of the Demon Lord Magoth so she can take her rightful place beside Gabriel, the ruler of the Silver Dragons.

    Stephen says: "LMAO! "
    "Sequel?"
    Overall

    Though not quite up to the Green Dragon series, this book is great fun. My only complaint is that the next volume in the Silver Dragons' series is not yet available in an audible format. This volume really leaves the reader hanging at the end.

  • The Dragon’s Bride

    Although not penned as a sequel to The Devil’s Heiress, Dragon’s Bride introduces Con Somerford, Earl of Wyvern. Somerford inherits an earldom on the coast of England, which he has not visited for over a decade. Years of war and estrangement with his father have left him hard and alone and completely undesiring of the title or lands he now holds.

    Amazon Customer says: "Loved It!"
    "prequel, not sequel"
    Overall

    The event of this novel occur before those of "The Devil's Heiress," not after them as suggested in the Publisher's review printed on this site.

    Dramatic and suspenseful, Skylark is a tale of reawakened love. Young widow Laura Gardeyne must protect her son, who is heir to his family's fortune. When an old friend, the handsome Stephen Ball, offers his help, they soon discover secrets that could destroy the Gardeyne legacy.

    A says: "Boring"
    "Slowly built sexual tension"
    Overall

    Laura and Stephen aren't boring. Beverley does a great job of presenting the way fear of rejection prevents the hero from making a move that could dash his hopes forever. I also love the way the secondary plot keeps the reader guessing, finally rewarding those who interpreted the numerous clues correctly.

    Jane Hayes is a seemingly normal young New Yorker, but she has a secret. Her obsession with Mr. Darcy, as played by Colin Firth in the BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, is ruining her love life: no real man can compare. But when a wealthy relative bequeaths her a trip to an English resort catering to Austen-crazed women, Jane's fantasies of meeting the perfect Regency-era gentleman suddenly become realer than she ever could have imagined.

    ElChangoPelon says: "Fun read"
    "Must know the originals to enjoy this fully"
    Overall

    As a teacher and scholar, I've always steered clear of fan fiction and books by modern writers who attempt to exploit Austen's books and characters, but a serious Austen scholar recommended "Austenland" and I'm really glad she did. It is great fun for anyone with a thorough knowledge and love of Austen's fiction who is also able to maintain a critical distance. As the characters have their Austenland experience, they keep shifting into different subject positions from Austen's novels. Thus we keep going back and forth between characters in "Sense and Sensibility," "Mansfield Park," "Persuasion," "Emma," and, of course, "Pride and Prejudice."

    I suspect that some of the negative reviews of this book are by readers who feel themselves too closely represented and thus embarrassed by "Miss Charming," a character who is a savage, satiric send-up of an American Anglophile more addicted to Austen's romance plots than aware of the biting irony with which Austen presents them.

    Miss Dorothea Darent has no intention of ever getting married, certainly not to a rogue such as the Marquis of Hazelmere. A disreputable scoundrel, he is captivated when they meet by chance and is determined to win her heart, even while she's busy dazzling the rest of London society. Now Dorothea has a choice to make: stick with her plan to remain a respectable spinster, or run into the arms of her dashing stranger.

    Aileen says: "Not worth your time"
    "Yes, it's really that bad."
    Overall

    I foolishly wasted a credit on this book thinking that I would go with the ratings rather than the single review posted here. I thought well, I've liked other books by this author, so I can at least use it to take my mind off my worries so I can relax and fall asleep. But this book is beyond boring. There is no plot. It could not even keep enough of my attention to enable me to sleep. It is that bad.
