    When Destiny was only a child, her family was murdered and she was transformed into a Carpathian: a powerful and shadowy creature of the night, but not quite a vampire. Destiny shares a telepathic connection with Nicolae, her mentor. But now Nicolae needs to find her, or he may lose his soul and succumb to darkness forever.

    Christine Feehans books are remarkable. They combine imagery, emotion, complexity, and darkness in such a loving way. There is no other for me that can write a paranormal book this way all her books including this one are intriguing. Nicolae and Destiny are compeling characters who do not let adversity stand in their way. The ancient language and the code of natural healing along with the idea of a community coming together almost seems like something we should emmulate today. I only wish that men were as caring and concerned as Feehan's character are but not as bossy and controlling. Yet Feehan is not stingy in the sexual erotic area. These couples are highly sexual! They might even make you quiet hot under the collar. The stories all generally follow the same plot with some variations but it's always nice to see what new setting or situation is going on. Each book links them in some way to the previous ones but Feehan does not dwell too much on the previous characters unless it is in some way an integral part of the story. Her books are always good reads.

    This was a really sweet story. The characters were all very accepting and forgiving. Almost a Cinderella story. Liked how it didn't drag on and had the right balance of intimacy. The narrator was good and had good inflection. All in all it was very enjoyable.

    Claire Summers is a determined, independent single mother who is doing her best to make lemonade out of the lemons life has handed her. Keith Watson is a results-oriented workaholic with no time for a social life. As the executive assistant to a local philanthropic businessman, he's used to fielding requests for donations. But when a letter from Claire's 11-year-old daughter reaches his desk, everything changes. The girl isn't asking for money, but for help finding the long-lost son of an elderly neighbor.

    I loved this story. It is my first read for this author. I found both the story line and narrator to be intriguing and added the right amount of inflection bringing tears to my eyes. If you think you know what's coming you you will be very surprised.

    Story

    the story was good but it seemed to drag on some of the chapters could have been condensed. The narrator was monotone and t9 be honest if it wasn't for the story line I would have stopped listening to it. No steamy sex scenes which I appreciated.

    This holiday season, join two of today’s most popular paranormal authors for a special look into their worlds, where creatures are always stirring and no one sleeps through the night. The Bite Before Christmas: Teddy Brunswick knows about the immortals among us. He’s worked with them, called them friend - but he never counted on being snowed in with one over Christmas. Home for the Holidays by Jeaniene Frost: Cat and Bones are looking forward to a normal holiday - at least as “normal” as it gets for the combustible vampire couple....

    What made the experience of listening to The Bite Before Christmas the most enjoyable?

    The writing was very funny and made for an enjoyable listen.


    Would you recommend The Bite Before Christmas to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would reccomend it because Lyndsay Sands is a fabulous writer with a very funny approach to the subject matter.


    What aspect of Paula Christensen and Tavia Gilbert ???s performance would you have changed?

    The other 2 writers did not grab me nor pull me in to the story. I really did not listen for long.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Lyndsay Sands book was, yes.

    Rafael De La Cruz has spent centuries hunting vampires with his brothers. With each passing year, his capacity to feel emotions has grown weaker and weaker, until finally there's barely a memory of one left - only sheer willpower keeps him from turning into the very abomination he hunts. But it'll take more than will to keep him away from the woman who is meant to be his and his alone.

    Overall

    Christine Feehans books are remarkable. They combine imagery, emotion, complexity, and darkness in such a loving way. There is no other for me that can write a paranormal book this way all her books including this one are intriguing. Rafael de la Cruz and Colby Jansen are compeling characters who do not let adversity stand in their way and are both extremely stubborn which makes for an interesting read. The ancient language and the code of natural healing along with the idea of a community coming together almost seems like something we should emmulate today. I only wish that men were as caring and concerned as Feehan's character are but not as bossy and controlling. Yet Feehan is not stingy in the sexual erotic area. These couples are highly sexual! They might even make you quiet hot under the collar. The stories all generally follow the same plot with some variations but it's always nice to see what new setting or situation is going on. Each book links them in some way to the previous ones but Feehan does not dwell too much on the previous characters unless it is in some way an integral part of the story. Her books are always good reads.

    Gideon Raintree, a homicide detective, can harness electricity and talk to ghosts. He will need to wield gifts he's kept hidden to solve his newest case, a relentless serial killer unleashed by the dark Ansara wizards. But first he must deal with his reaction to Hope Malory, his alluring new partner. He'd never planned on love in the midst of battle.

    Maryfrances says: "Good sequel"
    "Very Interesting"
    Overall

    This was truly an interesting twist. Gideon and his electrical mishaps in a world where everything is electronic and wireless makes for almost a funny no,no. However the story and Hope, the heroine have more than possibilities. Quiet a worthy read and author. Looking forward to reading another of her books.

    For centuries, Lucian Daratrazanoff has been the dark guardian of his people, living a bleak existence of violence and horror. But now his kind, the Carpathians, are dying out or falling prey to the soulless life of vampires. Only by finding his destined life mate can Lucien stave off the ever present lure of the soulless evil. Part man, part predator, Lucian will stop at nothing in order to find his mate. Jaxon Montgomery is anything but ordinary. She is stubborn, independent, but a damn good cop.

    Overall

    Christine Feehans books are remarkable. They combine imagery, emotion, complexity, and darkness in such a loving way. There is no other for me that can write a paranormal book this way all her books including this one are intriguing. Lucian and Jaxon are definitely opposites. In a world where the male is the guardian it almost seems ludicrious for Jaxon to be protecting Lucian especially since we all know the powers these Carpathians weild. The ancient language and the code of natural healing along with the idea of a community coming together almost seems like something we should emmulate today. I only wish that men were as caring and concerned as Feehan's character are but not as bossy and controlling. Yet Feehan is not stingy in the sexual erotic area. These couples are highly sexual! They might even make you quiet hot under the collar. The stories all generally follow the same plot with some variations but it's always nice to see what new setting or situation is going on.
