    Having endured weeks of torture in the bowels of hell, Kane wants nothing to do with his beautiful rescuer, Josephina Aisling. The half-Fae female threatens to awaken the demon of Disaster inside him - a beast he's determined to kill, no matter the price. Josephina is hunted by a brutal enemy - her royal family - and Kane is her only source of protection. He's also the only male to ever set her aflame, and even he succumbs to the heat. But as they navigate the treacherous world of the Fae, they are forced to make a choice: live apart... or die together

    This addition seemed to have a different feel to it. The book was good but far from my favorite, closer to my least favorite. I did like how things turned out in the end. I am still a fan though and will continue to read Gena Showalter's book diligently. The ones I enjoyed most are Death, Doubt, and Defeat, although Violence and Lies are close second. I am a Torin groupie so I can't wait for his story. This book has made me also anticipate Misery's story which I bet is next. If you have read this far then you know you like this series. If you are looking for something similar I would recommend the Demonica series by Larissa Ione.

    For anyone who's in love - or hopes to be - what greater celebration could there be than to hear the world's greatest love poetry read lovingly by Richard Armitage? With 15 poems by William Shakespeare, Edgar Allan Poe, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, and more, Classic Love Poems is a listening treat for Valentine's Day - or any day.

    Admittedly I'm just not into poetry, but it was free so I thought what the heck. I know I'm so refined, not. Now I can see if you like this type of writing this would really work for you, classic poems told by a narrator that hits the right peaks. As for me it passed the time, but I didn't see any big revelation. Thanks Audible for the freebie.

    Even D-list supervillains have to start somewhere. Follow Cal Stringel's misadventures as he climbs to the lowest levels of supervillany in the prequel to the smash hit, Confessions of a D-List Supervillain. Angry that he wouldn't be known as the engineer who made Ultraweapon's force blasters, Cal resigns to chase after a bigger, better paycheck. However, the Promethia Corporation isn't going to let him go that easily and sets out to make his life a living hell.

    I like how Cal thinks, he is devious and sarcastic, makes me laugh. While this book has funny parts the main emphasis is showing how Cal managed to have his life trashed so much that he became a D list supervillain. This book leaves you right where the Confessions of a D list Supervillain starts off. I had read Confessions quite some time ago and after listening to this book I went ahead and listened to it again. It was just as fun the second time around. If you’re a fan of the internet show of Dr. Horrible's Sing Along, you will like this. Narrator is perfect for the character Cal, shows his dry sense of humor.

    For centuries, mystical creatures of all description were gathered to a hidden refuge called Fablehaven to prevent their extinction. The sanctuary survives today as one of the last strongholds of true magic in a cynical world. Enchanting? Absolutely. Exciting? You bet. Safe? Well, actually, quite the opposite... Kendra and her brother Seth have no idea their grandfather is the current caretaker of Fablehaven.

    I like children's book, especially if it is done correctly. This started off good with a lot of world building, but nothing that really caught my attention. The longer I listened to it, the more I started to enjoy it. The second half was fun and adventurous. I laugh when they were negotiating with the Troll. Admittedly there was a few parts to the book that annoyed me a bit, such as Seth always disobey, it was so bad that you couldn't believe a word he said. I did like that he was willing to try everything whereas Kendra as scared of her own shadow. I will probably read the remaining books in the series, but I might wait for a sale. I recommend The Spiderwick Chronicles if you like this book. Narrator was okay, although he was mostly easy to listen to, his voice was a bit to whispery and childlike.

    A former smuggler and thief, Ariq--better known as the Kraken King--doesn't know what to make of the clever, mysterious woman he rescues from an airship besieged by marauders. Unsure if she's a spy or a pawn in someone else's game, Ariq isn't about to let her out of his sight until he finds out.

    Another hit for the Iron Seas series. As per the series there is lots of adventure, fantasy, and romance. Ariq and Zenobia make for a steamy couple. I love the steampunk aspect of this series, it is quite imaginative. I went back and reread the other four books in this series because it had been a while since I read them and I was glad I did. The first three books were by a different narrator than the last two. While I didn't mind Alison Larkin as the narrator, I did think that Faye Adele did a better job. Mind you that I don't usually get to annoyed by the narrator as long as the author rocks. I'm hoping there will be more to this series. Start with the prequel Here There Be Monsters if you are interested in this series.

    You can run from the grave, but you can't hide. Half-vampire Cat Crawfield is now Special Agent Cat Crawfield, working for the government to rid the world of the rogue undead. She's still using everything Bones, her sexy and dangerous ex, taught her. But when Cat is targeted for assassination, the only man who can help her is the vampire she left behind.

    I liked this book better than the first book. I even like the narrator and her quirky accents. Bones and Cat have an electric relationship, they are perfect for each other. Cat has really come into her own since the last book. The way the author wrote this book it almost seemed like this was the first book. There is plenty of action and I like the new friends that Cat acquired. Jeanniene Frost really has a way of creating awkward situations and then finding ways to smooth it out when I thought it might be impossible. She often goes into directions with the story that I don't particular like and I wonder if she will be able to write her way out and be able to make me like it. Amazingly she somehow does. I will be continuing onto the next book soon.

She will do anything to save him, even escape Death's uncanny prison, full of beautiful objects, material comforts - and stolen glances from a former love.

    Another hit from Kresley Cole. Yes there is a triangle in this book, but in my opinion why does she have to choose. I certainly wouldn't want to, both Arik and Jack are something special and I wouldn't want to give up either one. I love the tarot card aspect of this series, I secretly think that Jack is the hidden card, and have my suspicions as to which one he is. To me Jack has aspects of John Conner from Terminator. This book went by so fast, that's usually a good sign of a great book. I recommended this series to many of my friends, I needed someone to talk to about it, badly. I can't wait until the next book comes out, I will defiantly snatch it up as soon as it comes out and anything else Kresley Cole comes up with. Narrator does a great job.

    While I enjoyed some parts of the book, others left me rolling my eyes and wonder should I finish the book. The parts I liked was the action, some of the characters and I liked where the plot was leading to. What annoyed me was the sex, it seemed like half the book. Don't get me wrong I usually like that part but it basically over ruled cognitive thinking. Security was overlooked because sex was too important. I didn't like the pack either. I liked some individual characters but as a whole I was not impressed. The book was good enough that I would read the next book if it was on a really good sale, but if I have to pay full price, this is where I stop. There is the beginning of Vampire Mine at the end of this book. Narrator was good for the most part, but I didn't like the voice she used for Mary.

    I have always enjoyed Julie Garwood's Highlander books. I read them as a teenager and was in love with them. When this one went on sale I picked it up and reread it. I enjoyed the story again and it brought back memories when I read it the first time. My favorite will always be The Bride with Alex and Jamie. I like how in each book the heroines always have some quirky characteristic that left the hero shaking his head with disbelief. Overall a fun highland romance. Narrator does a good job.

    Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all? Fans of the Lunar Chronicles know Queen Levana as a ruler who uses her "glamour" to gain power. But long before she crossed paths with Cinder, Scarlet, and Cress, Levana lived a very different story - a story that has never been told - until now. Marissa Meyer spins yet another unforgettable tale about love and war, deceit and death.

    Story

    Levana was always a psychopath/narcissists even as a teenager. She only gets crazier and more destructive the older she gets. This book is like a train wreck, you can't help but look to see what else Levana will do. Her sister Chandler is just as bad, are the parents to blame or were they just bad seeds to begin with. Marissa Meyer really keeps to the details and this book does give us an insight to what a horrible person Levana is. I really feel for Evert. I didn't read the three chapters for Winter only because I hate reading the beginning of a story and not be able to finish it. I will wait until it comes out in November, which makes this book only 5 hrs and 32 mins. This series is an amazing version of fractured fairytales, I love them. This book only wets the appetite for the next book. Series should be read in order. Narrator does an excellent job.

    This book starts right were the last book left off. I was so engrossed in the story I forgot to take my breaks at work, just continued to work and listen. In this book we get to find out more about Arik/Death and we discover there is so much more of him to like. Usually I'm not a fan of triangles but I like both of this men soooo much, I will take a sandwich please. So hard to pick which one I like better Jack or Arik. The world that Kresley Cole has created is amazing and so vivid to me, I want this to become a TV series. The use of Tarot cards are ingenious. I finally found another series that I'm super excited about, my only regret is that there is only three books out and that Kresley Cole doesn't write faster. Narrator does an excellent job and I am glad that only one was used in this book.
