    In the still shadows of the confessional, a madman tauntingly reveals his plan for a murder he is going to commit, pulling Father Thomas Madden into a twisted game by disclosing his next intended victim: Tom's sister, Laurant. In a frantic race to protect her, Tom calls upon his best friend, elite FBI agent Nick Buchanan, to track the predator who is closing in on Laurant. Now, as an electrifying attraction grows between Laurant and Nick, so does the danger - and one false move will cost both of them everything that matters.

    Story

    I am huge fan of Julie Garwood's older books and I like her newer stuff, just not as much as I enjoyed her Highlander or Regency books. This book is good but I wouldn't say great. I didn't connect with the characters as well as I would have liked. I have a hard time when the main characters are lacking any flaws. One thing that annoyed me is that we never hear the stories being told about Nick and Tommy only that there are stories and that they were funny. Maybe she was going for heartwarming and not funny because I didn't laugh. Narrator was okay, the recording had a few instances where the sound would drop, it usually only last a couple of seconds.

    Story

    I so love a good adventure book with lots of romance involving a hot sexy man. Not to mention Robert Petkoff super sexy voice. I could listen to him read anything. So far in this series I tend to like the Lykae books best but I can't wait to read the rest. Defiantly need to read this series in order. IAD is a great series, I am so glad I found it. If you like adventure in the Amazon I recommend reading The Codex by Douglas Preston, while this is not a super sexy romance book it is an awesome adventure in the Amazon with just a touch romance.

    Story

    Audible messed up the numbering for the books in this series. This is actually Deep Kiss of Winter, so this is both book 7 and 8 in the audible series. I did enjoy this story but it is far from my favorite. My main reason is because both Daniella and Murdoch love was so unattached, it didn't feel real until closer to the end. I'm also not a fan of books that skip a bunch of time without telling us what is going on. This one did a lot of skipping time since the story starts out the same time as A Warlord Wants Forever and it skips time a bunch only to touch down briefly during each passing book in the series, but is from Murdoch's point of view. I feel like Kresley Cole could have made this book into a longer book because some of the build up for the end of the book was anti climatic, such as the crowning of Daniella. Narrator rocks as usual.

    A migration of mythical creatures has begun, and more and more of them are landing on Zoey Donovan's doorstep. As the only Aegis left in the country, it falls to her to protect the Hidden and keep them safe - and her house has become a sanctuary for water sprites, goblins, harpies, djinn and more. Keeping track of her boarders is a full-time job, and Zoey's already got her hands full trying to run her wedding planning business.

    Story

    I enjoy all the monsters in this series. This book has a darker feel to it. I didn't enjoy the story as much as I did the first two, although it is still good. The main reason is that I felt Zoey was way to flippant for situations going on around her. For instants she would say something but her actions often say something else. Plus she would often miss the obvious going on around her and I wanted to smack her for it. Where the purple Iris grows was a bit of a tear jerker. There is plenty to look forward to in the next additions. I purchased this book for a discounted price with the whispersync program for less than $6.

    Story

    Yes I did liked this book, but essentially it is comparable to all the other stories in this series. So if you’re a SK fan you will love it. But as much as I love SK's work I am getting a little tired of the tortured H/h and how they focused so much on the ugly part of their pasts. The mood of the book lightens the second half even with all the strife still in limbo. Thank God it wasn't as depressing as Darling's or Styxx's story, at which point I might have had to kill myself. I also had to scan my brain for who some of the characters were. I eventually went to Sherrilyn Kenyon's website to read the character's bio to remember, which I think is cool and that all authors should have one. I have always loved Fred Berman.

    Nikolai Wroth, once a ruthless human warlord in the 1700s and now a general in the rebel vampire army, needs to find his bride, the one woman who can render him truly alive. As a turned human, he doesn’t enjoy a heartbeat or breathing and is consequently weaker than fully blooded vampires. He wants his bride for the power she will bring him and can hardly believe it when his heart beats for Myst the Coveted, a mad, fey, mythological creature. Myst is known throughout the world as the most beautiful Valkyrie, part chillingly fierce warrior, part beguiling seductress....

    Story

    I'm glad I didn't start with this book. It was defiantly not as good as the other books in this series, I recommend starting with A Hunger Like No Other. I like Kaderin/Sebastian's and Maraketa/Bowen's stories the best. This book did have some questionable sex scenes that was on the verge of rape that was a turn off for me, but Myst loved it so I guess to each her own. I didn't think the narrators where that bad, but I think they should have just stuck with the male voice. I am not a fan of duel narration.

    Once Olympia Wingfield had been free to devote all her time to her true passion: the study of ancient legends and long-lost treasure. But now, with three hellion nephews to raise, the absentminded beauty has very little time for research. Which makes it seem all the more serendipitous when a handsome stranger strides into Olympia’s library unannounced and proceeds to set her world to rights.

    Story

    I have enjoyed Amanda Quick older books in the past and every once in a while I like to read them again. I will admit that all of the older Amanda Quick's books are very similar. There is a headstrong heroine, a dashing hero, and an ancient mystery to uncover with villains in the back ground. Of course what's not to love about that. Narrator was only just ok, she is very breathy and with her accent it makes her harder to understand.

    This book was so good. Hot, funny, sweet and sour. I loved both Sabine and Rydstrom's characters, there was so much depth to them. I like the fact that they were not perfect. Kresley Cole sure knows how to turn them out. To date I have gobbled up her books and I cannot wait for more. Defiantly read in order. Each book is an adventure full of lore, romance, action, and great characters. And the cherry on top is the sexy narrator. If you like this book I recommend Sherrilyn Kenyon, Larissa Ione, Thea Harrison and Gena Showalter.

    Story

    So I watched the movie first and loved it. I decided why should I be the only one to read this book, so I suggested it for book club. It is a great book, and there was a lot of thought producing scenarios that was perfect for book club discussions. My 10 year old son listened to with me and we had a good time together, although there was some parts that were a little difficult for him to understand. It did get a little bogged down with all the religion at the first of the book, once you get to the ship wreck it is one heck of a ride. Narrator has a nice Indian accent that is understandable and fits the character well.

    Story

    Not my favorite in the series, but still a great addition. A road trip full of the lore, my kind of book. I liked both the characters really well. The one thing that made this story a four star instead of a five star was all the lying that Cade did. I understand why he did it, I only know that I didn't like how he went about it. I really liked the OCD part and all the back and forth going on between Holly and Cade. Kresley Cole has become an automatic download for me. Narrator is awesome.

    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.

    Another ball right out of the park. The story does take a bit to get out of the explaining mode and into the action. Once it starts there is no stopping Franks. Not much of MHI in this story as it focuses on MCB more. I'm a huge fan of Franks - badass extraordinaire. Franks has been around for a long time but he still has things to learn. I listened to the first book again recently and I wish I had with the entire series so that I could refresh my memory on events and characters. Defiantly a series to read in order. This book also revisits some of the other characters from previous books that I liked, especially loved the gangsta gnomes. The narrator does an awesome job and I can't imagine this series without him.
