    Christina Bennett had taken London society by storm. The ravishing beauty guarded the secret of her mysterious past until the night Lyon, Marquis of Lyonwood, stole a searching, sensuous kiss. An arrogant nobleman with a pirate's passions, he tasted the wildfire smoldering beneath Christina's cool charm and swore to possess her.... But the feisty and defiant Christina would not be so easily conquered. Mistress of her heart and of her fortune, she resisted Lyon's sensuous caresses.

    Story

    This was one of my favorite books when I was a teenager and I still enjoyed it. Although the narrator drove me nuts with her breathy voice and she was very high pitched whenever the characters raised their voices in an argument. If you are like me, then the narrator can be ignored and still enjoy the book. I sent Audible a bunch of request for books I would like to see on audiobook and this was one of them. Now that I am older and after listening to this book, I realized it was a little cheesier than when I was younger. I don't remember the heroine crying as much when I read it which is slightly annoying while listening to it. I still have good memories with this book and recommend it as a good romance. Now we just have to get the rest of the series on Audible which are; 2. Guardian Angel, 3. The Gift, 4. Castles.

    Some things are so worth waiting for. Like the moment when Jessica Ward "accidentally" bumps into Bobby Ray Smith and shows him just how far she's come since high school. Back then, Jess's gangly limbs and bruised heart turned to jelly any time Smitty's "all the better to ravish you with" body came near her. So, some things haven't changed. Except now Jess is a success on her own terms. And she can enjoy a romp - or 20 -with a big, bad wolf and walk away. Easy.

    Story

    This is a great shifter book, with different types of shifters in the book. What is great is that they actually have some of the traits of the real animals. Great characters in this book that has made me anticipate their stories, can't wait to read more. I loved Jessie Ann she is a girl after my own heart. Very sexy men with the right amount of testosterone to keep a girl's heart pounding. There is lots of humor to the story, sometimes I would be laughing out loud, but plenty of smiling like a loon moments. I do wish there was a little more action to the story but I still enjoyed the book very much, I would defiantly classify this book as a romance. I didn't mind the narrator too much, but occasionally she would end her sentences with a screech that was a little distracting. Recommend reading Molly Harper or Katie Macalister for funny romances. Although not quite as funny I would also recommend Tina Folsom's Scanguard series or Nalini Singh's Psy-Changling series.

    Story

    I'm really enjoying this series, it's like my favorite blanket. Glad to have it around and it gives me a nice warm, fuzzy feeling afterwards. The more you read this series the more you get hooked. This is a nice clean series for those who are not into sex. I personally would like to see more romance added, there are plenty of candidates to choose from. I'm leaning towards Sailor, but who knows if that will happen. Lily in a way reminds me of Sookie from Charlaine Harris's series, but the story is way different though. Lily is sweet and would do anything to help a friend, which is how she gets herself into trouble. Narrator is slightly annoying, but I'm good at focusing on the story and at book three I'm getting use to her.

    Welcome to Wayward Pines, population 461. Nestled amid picture-perfect mountains, the idyllic town is a modern-day Eden - except for the electrified fence and razor wire, snipers scoping everything 24/7, and the relentless surveillance tracking each word and gesture. None of the residents know how they got here. They are told where to work, how to live, and who to marry. Some believe they are dead. Others think they're trapped in an unfathomable experiment. Everyone secretly dreams of leaving, but those who dare face a terrifying surprise.

    Story

    In the first book, my review was positive, but it didn’t start out that way. I listened longer and my opinion of the first book improved immensely. With that in mind I purchase the second book, hoping with all the positive reviews that it only gets better. But again I’m 2 hours into the book and wondering should I finish. After finally finishing this book I'm irritated, it's just like what all the other reviewers are saying, there is no ending. It just stops right at the climax of the story. I don't mind trilogies but you need to at least finish a part of the story to end a book. I also feel that the characters are not overly developed and I know I would have been one of the towns folk that was immediately terminated, because I wouldn’t stand to be a stepford wife. I don't like the way the relationship is heading with Teresa/Ethan/Adam thing. I'm not sure I will purchase the next book. So my suggestion is buy this if it is on sale but only if you liked the first book really well.

    After turning his back on the throne for centuries, Wrath, son of Wrath, finally assumed his father's mantle - with the help of his beloved mate. But the crown sets heavily on his head. As the war with the Lessening Society rages on, and the threat from the Band of Bastards truly hits home, he is forced to make choices that put everything - and everyone - at risk. Beth Randall thought she knew what she was getting into when she mated the last pure blooded vampire on the planet: An easy ride was not it.

    Story

    Okay I will admit that I am not as enthralled with the BDB as with some of the other reviewers. I like it granted but it is defiantly not one of my favorite series. These books are a hit or a miss for me, this one is leaning more towards a hit. As usual there is more than one story to the book.

    First we have Wrath's and Beth's story where they are at odds on whether or not to have a baby. They then get together better than ever to fight The Glamaria/BOB. There is a beautiful scene with Elvis involved and then later when they get good news. Then we throw in Wrath's parents story and get to know them better, which puts our knowledge of Wrath in a new prospective. Both stories are a great addition to the series.

    Next we have Asail and Sola's story, which was better in this book vs the last book. Grandma is a hoot. I am not sure why JR Ward felt she needed to bring in a complete outside story and characters when there are still stories she has left undone. I feel that this story is just a shadow of Rhevenge's story. Overall I think it could have been skipped completely and because I think this I only gave this book 4 stars.

    Then we have Treze and Selina story, at first I wasn't feeling it and wondered how this was going to work. I eventually started to get a little more involved into their story, but it seems short and unfinished. I look forward to Treze's brother Iam story more. Maybe in the future Treze's story can be improved but right now it sorta sucks.

    As for Xcor and Layla, I was looking forward to their story but this book only brings up their story more towards the end. JR Ward has made me anticipate what will be next and how on green earth can that fubar be fixed.

    In the end though I still have lots of questions. What has happened to the Virgin Scribe? Are the Dogen vampires or some other breed? Where do they come from? Same with the Sempath and the Shadows. Did I miss how they came about somewhere in the story. What is going on with John Matthew and his seizures? Is the Omega getting weaker since Butch has been dispatching his lesser? How is Quinn's brother doing? Is there going to be a story for Murder? Forgive my spelling of names, spell check doesn't know them. I will defiently be reading the next book. Narrator is great as usuall.

    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

    Christmas Pride. I enjoyed this story it was funny, hot and left me wanting more. Mace did have a total caveman mentality but you have to love him for knowing what he wanted and he wasn't taking no for an answer. Several times I caught myself laughing at the antics in the story and it made for a fast work day. There was lots of sex, which was hot but a warning that there was a lot of crude talking and swearing. I have been looking for a new shifter story that I liked and I think I have found a new one to continue on with. I enjoyed the narrator even if she butchered some of the accents. 6 hrs 39 mins.

    Shaw's Tail. Another good addition to the Pride series. Funny and sexy with characters you can love. Author is very casual about sex so there is lots, so this is not for the faint of heart. Both books introduce us to new characters for future books and I look forward to reading their stories. Overall both stories are just romances and I would have liked to have had more action, but they are stories I can sink my teeth into. 5 hrs 34 mins.

    This is the extraordinary story of John Carter, who returns to the Red Planet in search of his beloved, Dejah Thoris. John lands in the Valley Dor, which is populated by vicious plant men, and discovers the Lost Sea of Korus, guarded by the great white apes and horrifying lions of Barsoom. It is here that he finds the princess Thuvia, who is a captive of the Holy Therns, high priests who eat only human flesh slain by their plant men.

    Story

    As the second book of Barsoom this book is equally as good as the first. The best part was when John Carter finally discovers his son. I was a little confused with his sons age. He seemed older than 10, but I think I must have missed something with in the book. There is lots of action and fighting and it keeps the story at a fast clip. The narrator was okay and is the same as the first version I read. My only complaint is his women's voices aren't very good. I recommend buying the Kindle version for free and then downloading this book for 99 cents. This how I got the 2nd and 3rd book in the Barsoom series. For a buck it was worth it.

    Story

    I am not a huge zombie book fan, so with that in mind I did enjoy this short story. The story has a fast pace and vivid imaging of a zombie breakout. So if you like this genre go ahead and download this book to try it. I got it free but I see that it is now 2.06 which is good for a trial. There is also a blurb for the next book in this series at the end of this one. Narrator did a good job.

    Students are spooked at the San Francisco School of Fine Arts, and Lily is called in to search for possible paranormal activity. In return she's been promised a trunkful of Victorian-era clothes recently discovered in a school storage closet. But Lily finds something else: the body of a wealthy patron of the school. In between running the store and seeing her new boyfriend, Max - a "mythbuster" who is uncomfortable with her witchcraft - she uses her sleuthing skills to try to solve the murder. Soon Lily senses something from the school's vintage clothes, but it's not the smell of mothballs - it's the unmistakable aura of evil intent.

    Enjoyable witch mystery with great character development. Although I think it's funny how every time Lilly turns around there is a new and good looking guy hanging around. Max is still her main squeeze, but if that falls apart look out. Lilly is a great character with a big heart with naïve that is enchanting. Recommend reading in order to benefit from the full story. I will be continue on with the next book. I like the narrator but sometimes she is a little slow with the reading and you don't get the full effect of the action parts.

    A quirky little romance story. This story is about two adults who met years later after going to the same high school and never really knowing each other. The couple is experiencing old feeling from school such as shyness, embarrassment and learning themselves, this makes for an endearing short story. Narrator does a pretty good job.

    Everyone knows confidence when they see it; but seemingly no one can actually describe what goes into it or how to get it. The Nerd's Guide to Being Confident is an unconventional way of looking at one of the most basic and obvious human traits and what one can do to gain a little more of it without feeling like a phony. Laughter included.
