    Known for making up his own rules of right and wrong, Texas Ranger Sam "Wildcard" MacGregor takes what he wants when he wants it, especially when it comes to women. But seduction is the last thing on his mind the moment he stumbles across an Hispanic beauty crouching in fear beside a burned-out wagon.

    Would you listen to Sam's Creed again? Why?

    I will listen to this book again, the story was good it does make you love some Texas Rangers.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Sam is what we want in a lone Texas Ranger to be, big, strong and even tempered. I liked that there were a number of fights and challenges along the characters travels. Bella was just handful enough to deal with this member of Hell's Eight.


    What about Jason Adams’s performance did you like?

    Jason is the "voice" of the Rangers now for me deep, slow and dangerous. He had just enough emotion in his performance to keep you listening.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "Hell's Eight - Texas Rangers - PLEASE!!!!"


    Any additional comments?

    It will take you a little while to get use to the narrators female voices, but his voice for Sam and the other male characters will make up for it. It's action packed from the start.

    Angels are falling from the sky in New York, struck down by a vicious, unknown force. Vampires are dying impossibly of disease. Guild hunter Elena Deveraux and the Archangel Raphael must discover the source of the wave of death before it engulfs their city and their people, leaving New York in ruin and Raphael's Tower under siege by enemy archangels. Yet even as they fight desperately to save the city, an even darker force is stirring, its chill eyes trained on New York . . . and on Raphael.

    This really turned out to be a very good listen. I've enjoyed the entire series and was glad to start delving into the lives of the "7". However getting back to Raphael and Elena was very exciting. The back and side stories were great - so glad I have this.

    I know I will have to listen to it a few times to make sure I have all my facts straight.

    When Cait Douglass resolves to get over her broken heart, throw off her inhibitions, and start really living, she's unprepared for the two sensual men who cross her path. Torn between them, she doesn't know which to choose - or what kind of dire consequences could follow. Jim Heron, fallen angel and reluctant savior, is ahead in the war, but he puts everything at risk when he seeks to make a deal with the devil - literally.

    I liked the characters but Jim was just too out there for me this round. I'm glad Sissy's character was involved matter of fact she had more balls then him in this one.

    Zev Hassick is surprised and confused when he finds himself attracted to his best friend. His very human, very male best friend. Zev is the son of the pack Alpha, regarded as the strongest wolf in generations, born to lead. And everyone knows a male shifter has to mate with a female of his own kind to keep his humanity. So shifters can't be gay, right? Jonah Marvel wants a relationship with Zev, his best friend, the man he has loved since childhood. It wasn't easy to maintain that relationship over years spent living apart while Jonah studied to become a doctor.

    Story

    Oh Cardeno C you are making me such a fan. I really like Charlie as the narrator too.

    Zev our big strong naïve Alpha is just ALL THAT! I love that he is mature and only naïve in a few things. Zev would protect his mate from anything however... Jonah just handles himself wonderfully, he's not naïve about anything. And he tries to understand and respect his headstrong boyfriend and his beliefs.

    Their friendship is priceless from the minute they meet as babe and pup. That is still one of my favorite parts of the story. We truly suffer with both of them as they struggle to completely come together. Don't get me wrong they get their groove on as they try to get on the same page at the same time. All that darn meaningful/emotional sex is still HOT!

    Good surprise story line and I was very happy to see my other favorite characters from book one play a seriously good part in this story.

    Very happy with this purchase.

The only problem is that she's fallen for the club's master, Mitchell Thorpe, who keeps her at arm's length. Little does she know that his reasons for not getting involved have everything to do with his wounded heart...and his consuming desire for her. Enter Sean Kirkpatrick, a Dom who's recently come to Dominion and taken a pointed interest in Callie.

    Story

    This was a good story. The narrator was fine. I will have to admit I rated it lower because of my experiences with two of the characters mentioned in the other books. Mainly Callies character has been portrayed in other books as sassy and hard to handle. Don't feel we got any of that here. Plus they kept mentioning how hard to handle she use to be. I know the storyline was more serious but just could not get into her.

    My biggest disappointment was that our club owner Thorpe was not the main character - it would have been better suited to be focused around his story.

    I'm another one of those listeners who may return this audio, knowing I will not listen too it again.

    Story

    You know a story is worth it when you cheer for the bad guy. Yes one is truly a bad guy who does bad things. I liked these guys, thought they were fun & sexy and had chemistry. The narrator was wonderful, great job Renard. The story starts off well it is basically a story of meeting someone who you just can't hide the real you from.

    One of our characters knows he's gay but doesn't really do anything about it and the other hasn't ever had to think about it until he meets and is attracted to a MAN. Luckily they are smart enough to just be amazed by it happening instead of trying to figure out why.

    Oh they have other issues. The story is not too predictable and one you will enjoy. The sex scenes will definitely have you making sure your earplugs are in completely. Oops caught me blushing.

    Killian O'Neal has a plan. The governor's son, Neith, has been enslaved in a high-end brothel. Killian's going to break him out, take him home and collect a reward. It's a daring mercenary rescue. What could go wrong? A lot, as it turns out. The governor doesn't want his son back, the ship and crew are on the run from the slavers, and Neith is in withdrawal from a drug that instills in him a desperate lust. A passionate heat flares between Killian and Neith - but is it just the effects of the drugs still in Neith's system, or could it be something more permanent?

    Story

    The listening of book 1 may not be mandatory to listen to this book 2 but it's not a bad idea. Both of these characters are introduced to us in the first one but not too much.

    Killian aka Cookie is just a wonderful guy who through his friendship with Captain Torin is part of the crew on the ship that seems to look for trouble. This latest mission has Killian going into rescue someone who it turns out can complicate the lives of the entire crew.

    Neath is the kind of man who may need rescuing. He gets caught up in a world many don't even knows exist. Killian is just what he needs but he doesn't know if his needs are real or affects of the drugs. They manage to muddle thru it just fine and throw some steamy sex in there as well.

    Jack LeFleur our narrators just brings life to his characters you can tell which character you are listening to. Another great job for him.

    Mercenary Captain Torin Covell needs a man who knows his way around a cockpit. Ace pilot Rain needs to get the hell off-planet. Thrown together by chance, the two men form a wary partnership. Torin has every intention of dumping Rain at the next moon, despite his intense attraction to the hotshot. In his line of work he can't afford to trust anyone, especially someone as infuriatingly charming and naive as Rain. But first, he's got a mission to complete.

    What Rain wants, Rain gets. And what he wants is Torin, any way he can get him.

    Now this audio was just fun. It is a sparing match from the beginning. The attraction is mutual but is it a good time to explore it. Torin and Rain are both very strong personalities and they both are use to getting their own way. They argue, they fight, they get sexed up.

    You should listen to see what it takes to earn each others trust.

    Our narrator Jack Lefleur has been known to bring listeners in just because he's doing the voices. It's sooo true, he rocks.

    Ethan Abbatt is a wolf shifter who can't shift. Plagued by pain and weakness all his life, he hopes to find an honorable death by joining his pack mates in a vampire attack. Instead, Ethan learns two things: draining his blood releases his pain and his wolf, and he has a true mate - a vampire named Miguel. Miguel Rodriguez is more than four centuries old. Strong, powerful, and vicious, he walks through life as a shadow, without happiness or affection.

    I really enjoyed this audio. It was a good listen. The narrator was wonderful with his accent and innocents of our younger Ethan and the smoothness of Vampire character Miguel.
    It may not be as deep as other Cardeno C 's books but it was certainly worth the price and it is something you could stand listening to more then once.
    I enjoyed the not too complicated story of our characters, I believe the storyline could have been longer to get more in depth. However it was good at sticking to the bottom line. How and why are our characters getting together and what would keep them together.

When Will goes to visit, he meets not only Tristan's mate, Benjamin, but their friend Raul, who receives a plea for help from his old werepack: his twin brother, Richard, has gone missing and is possibly under the influence of a witch.

    This should be listened to after the book "Cursed". It was officially released before the other book but picks up after the other one.
    Will and Richard are our main characters in this book They both have twin brothers, one set of twins Will and Tristan are witches and Richard and Raul are were wolfs. Tristan's mate is Benjamin their story is covered in "Cursed" and Raul is mated to Alex who's full story has not been told but they are part of these two books.
    Raul takes Will with him to help uncover what has happened to his brother Richard. As it seems there is a witch who may be tampering with Richard. Will is a joy on this adventure and tries to reason with himself about his reaction to Richard and how strong the bond is, especially with Richards wolf.
    This author does a good job with the close family relationships as well as the mates. The narrator who I have heard do a wonderful job on other projects, rips the heck out of this one. I was stunned at his lack of delivery.
    You will experience HOT and detailed sex by all our mated couples in this book. Where you see the difference of the couples who are both were wolfs And by those whose mates are not. So try and keep your mouths closed in public!!

    Story

    First and foremost for some reason this audio was added later then the next story "Betrayed", listen or read this one first.
    I bought it as a in between preternatural listen as I waited for my monthly credit. Tristan and Benjamin's story is not bad. I liked that it was straight forward and clear. I usually go for lycan stories but don't usually care for witches as main characters. But Tristan being the witch worked out fine. He is a bit of a do gooder and does go the distance to right a wrong.
    The narrator could have delivered so much better. And yes its what makes the story not as good.
    It is my first "gay romance" story and I hate that it has to be classified as a "gay romance" because it is, bottom line a love story. Your main characters are two men that you will want to get together. There are detailed sex scenes so "watch out" and enjoy.
