    Story

    I've been listening to more vampire stories lately but this shifter story caught my eye via searching for Kirsten Potter. She is my second fav narrator (Marguerite Gavin is my all-time FAVORITE storyteller) and this sounded interesting.

    The story starts out with intrigue, conflict and red hot wolf rescue of the damsel in distress. I was hooked within five minutes. This take-the-scenic-route-home story kept me interested until the very last minute. The world and character building are thoroughly entertaining. The secondary characters in the Alpha Pack have great personalities and I hope Sariel's story is next! Jax and Kira are a couple I enjoyed getting to know as people and as wolves, and their sex life? Sign me up! I will definitely be looking for the remainder of the books in this series and downloading asap.

    Just as Jane Jameson’s unlife seems to be stabilizing, fate sinks its fangs firmly into her butt. Despite her near-phobia of wedding planning, her no-frills nighttime nuptials to her sexy boyfriend, Gabriel, are coming along smoothly. That is, until she turns a fatally wounded teenage acquaintance, and the Council pronounces her responsible for the newborn vamp until he can control his thirst.

    Story

    Jane's sense of humor, speech patterns, smart aleck attitude and snarkiness are absolutely perfect. I would be her best friend in a heartbeat! If only she were real... This is a fun addition to the series. If you know and love this gang, you're in for a great time!

    They killed me. They healed me. They changed me. Sure, the life of a graduate student wasn't exactly glamorous, but it was mine. I was doing fine until Chicago's vampires announced their existence to the world---and then a rogue vampire attacked me. But he only got a sip before he was scared away by another bloodsucker...and this one decided that the best way to save my life was to make me the walking undead.

    Once, Sarah Bingham's biggest challenge was making her students pay attention in class. Now, after rescuing a wounded stranger, she's landed in the middle of a battle between corrupt vampires and powerful immortals who also need blood to survive. Roland Warbrook is the most compelling man Sarah has ever laid hands on. But his desire for her is mingled with a hunger he can barely control...

    Story

    I thoroughly enjoyed this story. I looked at it first because of the narrator. The synopsis sounded interesting so I clicked. The story starts out with a bang and just keeps going. I love the Immortals, they all have great personalities and the banter between them is hilarious.

    I have a 40-minute commute each way M-F and listening to a book makes the time fly. I even sat in the car after I got home several times to get to the end of a scene in this story.

    I am getting the second installment today to begin on the way home, yay!! My thanks to Dianne Duvall who wrote a superb story and to Kirsten Potter who made it come alive!
