    Mechanic Mercy Thompson has friends in low places - and in dark ones. And now she owes one of them a favor. Since she can shapeshift at will, she agrees to act as some extra muscle when her vampire friend Stefan goes to deliver a message to another of his kind. But this new vampire is hardly ordinary - and neither is the demon inside of him.

    Story

    I started with the first book and now I'm hooked. I like that all of the characters get developed and none of my favorites get forgotten during the story. This story focuses on the Vampires. It also brings a nice aspect of Mercy with her lamb necklace. The narrator does a fabulous job with the different voices, accents and languages.

    I normally listen during my commute. This series was wonderful enough that I found myself listening as much as I could. Can not wait for the next book!

    Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

    When her crew is scattered in a run from the law and her ship crashes, exploding into a ball of flames, the injured Olena is forced to find sanctuary on a Galaxy Brides ship. Posing as a blushing “mail-order” bride to elude the bounty hunters that pursue her, Olena finds herself heading to the primitive planet of Qurilixen. But, being a bride isn't something that Olena takes seriously.

    Story

    Dark Prince is the story of Prince Yusef and the Pirate Olena. Olena must find a place to hide from those that are pursuing her and ends up as bride to a dragon shifting prince. Olena tries to stay true to her pirate spirit and not fall in love with Yusef. The prince does what he can to make Olena stay. He already knows some of the truth about her and is waiting patiently to hear it for himself.

    Their chemistry is off the charts and yet Olena keeps Yusef at bay. Olena seems to be accident prone in her independence and desire to stay away from Yusef’s bed. But desire also heats up between them, Yusef burns for Olena. Will they combust before Olena is found by those seeking her? Listen and find out!

    I normally do not listen to narrators that are men since their high pitched renditions of female voices bother me. However, Mason Lloyd did the Dark Prince justice in presenting the mood of the book and was not high pitched for the part of Olena. His voice was soothing enough without sending you to sleep, something the other drivers wouldn’t have appreciated.

    I had previously listened to Perfect Prince and was already vaguely familiar with some of the events that involved Olena. I don’t believe that listening to previous books in the series was necessary to enjoy Dark Prince. This book did go into different details while staying true to the outline. I look forward to listening to the stories of the other princesses and how they handle their new husbands.

    Story

    I was hooked in the first 30 minutes. This is one story that I was sorry that I only listen during my commute. I couldn’t wait to hear the next section each time I had to leave off, and I kept finding extra listening time.

    Nadja and Olek are united in a quick wedding after only meeting a few hours before the ceremony. Now they must learn who each other is, and that is explosive. It is the longest and hottest foreplay that I have encountered in a book. Neither of them have the sense to sit down and share a meal while discussing themselves. Both want to keep it simple and protect the other from their own secrets. A happy union that does not make.

    Listening to both Nadja and Olek fight against themselves and each other while being passionately on fire was intense. Nadja lives in fear of being found by her father and Olek fears losing Nadja if he can’t make her see that she is the other half of him. And of course they both bungle things. As events exploded towards the end, I kept thinking that there wasn’t enough time to finish their story. It did end and without a cliff hanger.

    This was the first book I have listened to with Libby Hudson as a narrator. She did an excellent job in conveying not only the individual voices but the feelings and mode of the book as well. I will be looking for more books narrated by her.

    This was the first book in the Dragonshifters I had listened to. I didn’t feel that I had missed anything by not listening to the first.

    This is the second book in The Guardians, I did not listen to the first and didn’t feel like I had missed anything about Josh. A quick note about the narrator, JD Hart, I normally don’t go for men narrators due to range of voices, but boy can this one put the old world sexy into Josh’s voice.

    It's the year 2069 and even though 18-year-old Bianca Butterman is heir to the family biz, she may never see the day her time-craft license becomes official. When a government agent starts nosing around the operation, Butterman Travel, Inc. gets stuck with a full audit-part of a government take-over scheme to shut down all private time travel agencies.

    Story

    Have you ever wanted to time travel? Have you ever stopped to think where would you go, and what about the how? Hang on to your buffer suits, because this book will take you not only to a short time in the future where time travel is a business but it will also take you back to some of the best times in rock music.

    Butterman Time Travel starts off a little slow with Bianca Butterman explaining all of the how-tos. You can just feel how Tristan’s (hot boy band member) must feel – ya ya rules yada yada. Tristan has booked a trip to go back to before he was involved with drugs to rescue his career. Ah, yes what we all wouldn’t do for a do over. But you know it can’t be that easy. What’s meant to be will happen, right? Or maybe not?

    Once the book gets thrumming along there are plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing. You wonder along with Bianca, what is going on, why is the government trying to screw with the family business and particularly this trip which is her inaugural trip piloting solo. Due to the government interference, Bianca and Tristan end up at Woodstock. You can almost feel how it affects Bianca and makes her change. I almost wished for a soundtrack at that point and I’m certainly changing my playlist.

    I really felt the connection with Bianca. Bianca is at that age where she’s taking charge, knows what she’s supposed to do, what the rules are. Yet at the same time she still has the questions and a tad of insecurity that we all have at 20. I Ioved how Tristan plays on her last name, teasing her in that way that guys will do when they don’t want to just say they like someone.

    This book did a fantastic job of describing the future from the basics of clubbing, to technology changes that one would expect in the near future, to the government still being the government. Do you want to know if Tristan was able salvage his career? Guess you’ll have to book a trip with Butterman Time Travel to find out. Don’t be a Butterdud – book today!

    They call me the Spider. I'm the most feared assassin in the South -- when I'm not busy at the Pork Pit cooking up the best barbecue in Ashland. As a Stone elemental, I can hear everything from the whispers of the gravel beneath my feet to the vibrations of the soaring Appalachian Mountains above me. My Ice magic also comes in handy for making the occasional knife. But I don't use my powers on the job unless I absolutely have to. Call it professional pride.

    Story

    It took me a few minutes to get into this. I wasn't sure about it but I'm glad I hung around. There were a couple of places where I thought it might be predictable, but was surprised with the results. The book did a nice job of detailing the scenes and making them realistic and easy to picture without being boring. Gin has a code and morals, even to the extent of not using them as excuses for being an assassin. I loved this narrator's different voices. I was especially fond of "cake walk" (you'll know it when you hear it)

    I am already looking forward to the next book.
