    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.

    Seven years ago Kaylin fled the crime-riddled streets of Nightshade, knowing that something was after her. Children were being murdered— and all had the same odd markings that mysteriously appeared on her own skin….Since then, she's learned to read, she's learned to fight and she's become one of the vaunted Hawks who patrol and police the City of Elantra. Alongside the winged Aerians and the immortal Barrani, she's made a place for herself, far from the mean streets of her birth.

    I read the free prequel novella about a year ago and I was not overly impressed. I had already purchases this book so after I forgot what was in the novella (it was that good), I went ahead and listened to this book only because I hate to waste money. I could not connect with the book. I had more questions and the characters were only paper cut outs. I felt like they went through the motions but I had no sense of who they were, where they were or what the differences were between the cast. I kept catching my mind wondering and then I would think I missed something, but no, nothing was ever explained. There were a few ideas that could have panned out but since I felt the same with the novella I decided not to finish this book. I have finished books that were worse, I just didn't want to waste my time on something I had mediocre feeling towards when I have over 200 audio books in my library that I haven't read yet. Narrator did an okay job, she just can't make up for inadequate writing.

    Michael was born with special electrical powers - and he’s not the only one. His friend Taylor has them too, and so do other kids around the world. With Michael’s friend Ostin, a techno-genius, they form the Electroclan, an alliance meant to protect them from a powerful group, the growing Order of Elgen, who are out to destroy them. The leader of the Elgen, Dr. Hatch, has kidnapped Michael’s mother, and time is running out. After narrowly escaping an Elgen trap, Ostin’s discovery of bizarre “rat fires” in South America leads the gang to the jungles of Peru.

    Story

    Another adventure into the land of the Electriclan and Elgen. I enjoyed this story and for the most part it flew by. The only part I felt was a little on the long side was when the story was from Dr. Hatch's point of view. I think Dr. Hatch's megalomaniac part should have been shortened some, this caused me to only give the book 4 stars. It's fascinating to see what different powers the kids have and how they grow, there was also great character development. Story does leave at a cliff hanger, but I plan on reading more anyway. Narrator is excellent as usual, I have always enjoyed Fred Berman.

    I will admit that there have been books in this series that are a hit or miss for me. I loved Z, John Matthew, and Quinn's books. I didn't like Fury, Torment, or V's book. Yes, I know I didn't spell them right, hell I have problems with regular words no less names with funky spellings. As for this whole series it is tear jerker city and this one is up there along with the rest.

    As per usual there is more than one story going on here, lots of arcing. The main one is of course is Tres and Selena, very sad. Then there is Layla and Xcor. This is the story I was looking forward to, but alas now I'm mad it is going in a direction I don't like. Then of course we have a new romance with the other twin, Iam and Mechan/Cotra. There is also a few parts for other varies characters. One is a new character, a girl named Paradise and I think she will have more in the future with the training camp, a good start for her.

    Now, now all you reviewers that are harping on Jim Frangione, give the guy a break. First off, he still reads the same as all the other books. If he has changed the names it is not his doing, it is the author and the publisher you can blame them. Jim is doing his job. I thought he did the best he could with the names he has to work with. I work in Vital Records and you cannot believe some of the crazy names people come up with, and then try to pronounce them, impossible.

    The Vikings are lost in a terrible storm, and it's up to Hiccup to help them find their way home again. Featuring the beloved main character from the celebrated How to Train Your Dragon series, here's an exciting adventure that shows what it really means to be brave.

    Story

    Warning this story is less than ten minutes long, with a preview of How to Train your Dragon for the remaining time. While this story is cute, I think this should have just been added to the end of the first book. I'm glad I waited for the semi annual sale to get it. I did not like the echo that came when Stoic talked, portraying how big he was, good thing the other books aren't like that. Read by the Author who is okay but is no David Tennatt (whom I love.) Although the preview of How to Train your Dragon is narrated by David Tennatt.

    Cal Stringel may be dead to the world at large, but a select few know that he's still alive and in control of the most powerful suit of battle armor ever created. He's part of a rogue superteam taking the world by storm and changing the dynamic for both heroes and villains alike. With change comes resistance, and those holding control and power are not ready to just hand it over without a fight.

    Explains a lot about how Cal progressed from his armor being destroyed to the new and improved creation that Cal built to destroy Ultra Weapon. Still funny even without much new material for the story line. I appreciated that he did not give up on his best friend, even if his best friend is a robot. Narrator does an excellent job of portraying Cal's wicked sense of humor.

    Samantha Martin is an imp, bound by an angel who allows her to live among the humans...as long as she follows his rules. It's never easy for an imp to follow the rules, especially now that Sam's brother, Dar, has found himself in hot water. He needs her help to retrieve an artifact from the vampires, or the powerful demon he owes a favor to will enslave and torture him for centuries. It should be a simple courier job, but with demons nothing is simple.

    I liked the first book okay, but there were things about it that was off putting and since the reviewers were saying the second book is better I figured I would give it another shot. Especially since I bought the first three book in this series unheard, but at $6.00 total it was hard not to. There was some really funny parts and overall it was better than the first book, there were still a few off putting parts. It's hard to believe how understanding Wyatt is. I did laughed my ass off when Sam turned into a dog. I also like Diablo the horse demon. The narrator has a weird voice, and she reads soooooo slow so I ended up putting my player on fast speed.

    It happens whenever wolf shifter Roni Axton is near Marcus Fuller: a crackle of sexual awareness that's intoxicating...and deeply annoying. Marcus is a pack enforcer who oozes power, but Roni is lethal in her own right - nothing like the flirty females who flock around him. Even still, his possessive gaze makes one thing clear. Marcus has singled her out for seduction, and he wants to make her sit up and beg.

    Another hot book by Suzanne Wright. The pages were steaming with this book. So if you are a fan of the series pick it up. I still love the first book best, with the third my least favorite. I wish there was a little more action, but for a romance it is great. I love the characters in this book and can't wait for the next couple to have their book, I'm hoping it's Ryan's book. Since it has been awhile since I read the other books and I did need a bit to remember all the characters, but the one I forgot most was Roni (Nick's Sister from book 3) although it came back quickly. I got this book/audio for $5.98 total using the Whispersync feature. Narrator does an awesome job.

    Recently widowered and grieving, Gavin flees New York City for the quiet of the country. His new home on Lake Caldasac has surprisingly few visitors, and the author soon learns why: a suspiciously high number of people have gone missing in the small town. The deaths have all been ruled accidents, but Finn Horn, a handicapped boy obsessed with fishing, knows the truth. There’s a monster in the lake. And it wants to feed.

    Story

    Yup, I'm a sucker for a monster book/movie, but that doesn't always mean I like it, this one overall wasn’t too bad. Just like in fishing there is a lot of waiting for the good parts to happen, and in the meantime there is a secondary plot with a different type of monster involved. While interesting and I like the characters I'm only going to only give this 3 stars because there was some unnecessary parts to the story that was added that in my opinion detracted from the main story. I felt the story would have been better without it, especially the last five minutes of the book. Also some of the parts with the sheriff could have been deleted, especially the cockroach parts, that just didn't fit the story well. If you liked this book I recommend The Terror by Dan Simmons. Narrator does a good job, easy to listen to.

    Kera Watson never expected to face death behind a Los Angeles coffee shop. Not after surviving two tours lugging an M16 around the Middle East. If it wasn't for her hot Viking customer showing up too late to help, nobody would even have seen her die. In uncountable years of service to the Allfather Odin, Ludvig "Vig" Rundstrom has never seen anyone kick ass with quite as much style as Kera.

    If you like Shelly Laurenston's Pride series you are going to like this series. There are lots of new characters in this new book and I believe that if SL keeps writing this series they will each have their own book. As per Shelly Laurenston norm the characters are kick butt with sass types, which I love. There is lots of Viking and Nordic lore that makes for a boundless back story. This book leaves off not exactly with a cliffhanger, but with enough of one I'm dying to know what happens next. The narrator does a good job too. I think she was trying to sound like Charlotte Kane from the Pride series, and in my opinion she hit the mark. I have listened to Johanna Parker before and have always enjoyed listening to her.
