    The third entry in Heather Killough-Walden's Big Bad Wolf series finds healer Dannai dreaming of two werewolves: one is a notorious killer, and the other is Lucas Caige, a man with a haunting past who's determined to make Dannai his mate. Contains mature themes.

    Story

    This series just keeps getting better and better with each new book, which is a real surprise since most series drop off. This is the story of Lucas and Dannai, 2 very different people but yet they compliment each other so well. In this book there is a little bit of everything, werewolves, witches, warlocks, and vampires. Lucas is a werewolf who hates magic and Dannai is a witch, healer, and a dormant. The story line continues from the first 2 books and it is interesting to see the over all story unfold. Old enemies come back and there are new ones as well along with old friends still making appearances.

    The combination of Ms. Walden's writing ability and Gildart Jackson's narration makes this a very enjoyable series to follow.

    Dragos Cuelebre is no longer the only dragon. Dragos’s son Liam Cuelebre (a.k.a. Peanut) is springing into existence, reminiscent of the first of the Elder Races who were born at the beginning of the world. At just six months of age, he has already grown to the size of a large five-year-old boy. He can read, write in complete sentences, and his math skills are off the chart. A white dragon in his Wyr form, Liam also holds more power than almost anyone else.

    Story

    Peanut stops bullies, gets a girlfriend, and gets a bad teacher put in jail!!!! And he didn't even finish the first day. This may be short, but it is so cute you have to listen to it again. The talk he and Dragos has at the end was very moving and it gives us just a small hit of the dragon Peanut will grow up to be.

    Thea and Sophie do their normal great jobs and the Elder Races is still one of my favorite series. Only bad thing is now I have to wait for the next book to come out.

    In the latest story of the Elder Races, two mates face their deadliest challenge yet-each other… Pia and Dragos's magical young son Liam (the Peanut), is growing at an unprecedented rate, and if that isn't enough, he is also exhibiting new, and unpredictable, magical gifts. To protect him, the concerned parents decide to move to upstate New York. Both Dragos and Pia relish the idea of leaving behind the city. They finally have the space to indulge their Wyr side, and Liam can grow in safety.

    Story

    This would have made a great full book, but it is also a great novella. While it is not hard to figure out how Dragos gets hurt, it is very hard to figure out what Pia is going to do to get him back. You do get a little in sight into what Dragos was like in his younger days though which was fun. But the question is, what doesn't he remember?? As for "the Peanut", I love the suprise he had for his parents!! You never know how a child will act to a simple statement.

    While I never use to like short books, I must say I really have enjoyed all the novellas in this series. But now I have to wait again for the next installment in this series, luckily not long for the next will be out sometime this month.

    Thea, Please keep them coming and also please keep Sophie Eastlake as your narrator. She does a perfect job and I love listening to her. I don't think anyone else could do your characters as well as she does.

    For a librarian with a focus on rare magic books, Olivia's new job is a dream come true. She has been hired as part of a team to help manage the safe transportation of the collection of books owned by the Vampyre sorceress Carling Severan. The fact that the library is located on a mysterious island in an Other land only heightens the adventure. Head of security for the expedition, Sebastian Hale is tired of his rootless life of adventure and finds himself attracted to the calm, beautiful librarian. But he is living a personal nightmare.

    Story

    The only thing I found wrong with this book, is that it is to short! The good thing about these shorter books is they give you additional information on some of the lesser charactors in the regular books. If you have not listened to at least Oracle's Moon, you may miss or not understand some of the references this book makes.

    This is the story of Olivia and Sebastian and from their first meeting things just seem to happen at a fast pace. When the Djinn Faydra (Khalil's daughter) protects Olivia from Julian (Vampire King), you just know that at some future time they will meet again and it will be interesting to see what happens then.

    I was glad to learn more of Olivia and Faydra (both are lesser charactors in Oracel's Moon) and I think it would be fun to have a book on Faydra herself. Maybe it is in the works (I Hope). Over all, this is a great addition to the series and I eagerly await the next book in this series.

    The Bermuda Triangle. Pirates. The Peanut. What could possibly go wrong? Dragos Cuelebre needs a vacation. So does Pia, his mate. When the First Family of the Wyr head to Bermuda for some much needed R&R, it's no ordinary undertaking - and no ordinary weekend in the sun. Between hunting for ancient treasure buried beneath the waves and keeping track of their son, Liam - a.k.a. Peanut, whose Wyr abilities are manifesting far ahead of schedule - it's a miracle that Pia and Dragos can get any time together. They're determined to make the most of each moment, no matter who tries to get in their way.

    Story

    This may be short, but it was so much fun listening to it. Pia and Dragos are definately going to have their hands full with "the Peanut!" Liam is like most children growing up, except his doing thing alot earlier then most children. Pia and Dragos are going to have to think faster if they want to stay ahead of Liam. He has so much of both parents talents that it will take both of them to keep him safe. It will be interesting to watch Liam grow and I get the feeling that he will just as dangerous as Dragos when he grows up.

He doesn’t just want her body, he wants her heart forever. In the hands of a hot alien, Ariel is about to discover how pleasurable captivity can be.

    Story

    First I will warn you, this is a very sexually explicit book. It is also not the typical "Close Encounters of the Fourth Kind" I found this to be a fun, sexy, and very enjoyable love story. Ral and Ariel have some interesting situations come up and its fun to listen to them learn about one another. The cultural difference and not always being able to understand one another cause some interesting problems. It also shows what can happen when some one's family sticks their nose into your business where it doesn't belong. It almost cost Ariel dearly. I also expected Ral to knock his youngest brother out!!! It will be interesting to see what happens in future books.

    If you liked the Krinar series, then I think you will like this one as well. I have already gotten the next 3 in this series and now it's time to listen to them. I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did.

    Story

    I very much enjoyed the first 3 stories, but was a little disappointed in the 4th one. I would like to see more on each of the first 3 stories. Ms. Ivy and Ms. Bangs are both new authors to me, but I have enjoyed all of Ms. Duvall's books very much and am eagerly awaiting her next one in the Immortal Guardians series.

    Ms. Ivy and Ms. Bangs both have the beginnings of very good series and I hope they do write more about them. They both had some very interesting characters that I would like to know more about. With Ms. Duvall's story, I was glad to get Richart's story. I found him to be an interesting character from his first appearance in "Darkness Dawns." If you have listened to the first 3 books in this series, you will pick up on some of the references in this story.

    Now for the down side, in Ms. Jayne's story, I found it to be more of a murder mystery and not a very good one. Nina's constant reminder that she was a vampire was over done, but Pike seems to be an interesting character. That is the reason I took 1 star away from this for story. Its a good thing this was the last story and the other 3 well make up for it and are what make this a book worth listening to.

    Byron Caige has been a prisoner for the last fifty years of his supernaturally long life. Just when he gives up hope of ever knowing the taste of freedom again, he is unwittingly rescued by the very same woman who only wants to see him dead. Katherine Dare - Kat - is smart, fast, strong, and beautiful - but unfortunately she’s a Hunter, and she’s convinced that Byron murdered her father twenty years ago. She’s also Byron’s dormant. As supernatural war breaks out amongst the otherworldly of Earth and threatens the existence of entire races, Kat is faced with a terrible decision.

    This is the best one yet I think!! This is the story of Byron (Lucas's lost brother) a werewolf and Katherine a hunter and a dormant. Two people from opposite ends of the story who come together to fight a common enemy. As their stories unfold, they get help from not only friends, but a couple of mysterious allies. The twists at the end will have you shaking your head and on pins and needles for the next book in this series. Some may take this book as the end of the series, I really, really hope that is not true. For while some questions have been answered, there are still more that have not been answered yet and I would like to see what happens with Jessie.

    This series as been a very enjoyable surprise so far. In this installment, Cole and Charley are the main characters, but its a continuation from the first book in the over all story line. I am glad to see Cole find his true dormant and to get the rest of his story. I found Cole to be an interesting character in the first book as well. Charley's story is a real surprise as well! Very good action and I loved all the "little" secrets that are being revealed with each book. But there are still a lot of stories to be told and secrets to be revealed. I hope you enjoy this series as much as I do.

First, her father is determined that she mate for life with a wolf shifter named Roscoe Weston, whom the feisty Taryn can’t stand. To make matters worse, she’s also been kidnapped by Trey Coleman, a dangerous alpha male from another pack. And as much as she wants to resist Trey, Taryn is incredibly, maddeningly attracted to him.

    Story

    I was trying to find a book to take up some of the time until one of my favorite authors comes out with something new when I came across this book. The description only mildly interested me and at the time I didn't find anything else so I gave this book a chance and BOY am I glad I did. If you liked Thea Harrison's Elder Race series, then I think you will like this one as well. Taryn reminds me of Pia and Trey kind of reminds me of Dragos.

    Taryn and Trey make a deal to help each other out with a problem of their own and it turns into something much more. Taryn has had to battle all her life because of her "handicap" and Trey has fought all his life because of his past. Together they make each other stronger and each over comes their problems.

    There are a lot of strong supporting character and a good story line. I liked the added insight into werewolf packs and politics. There is a lot of fast paced action and some very sexy parts as well. I look forward to books on the rest of the characters.

    Suzanne Wright as author and Jill Redfield as narrator are both new to me and both did a great job with this book. I will be looking for other books by both of them.
