    Kara MacAllister thinks she's just an average, small-town preschool teacher until the night a mysterious stranger shows up at her door claiming that she's not only immortal, but the chosen one of a band of powerful shape-shifting males. Lyon steals her away from everything she knows and thrusts her into a world beyond her comprehension, a world filled with magic, nightmares, and perilous danger where Kara discovers an inner strength she never knew she possessed, and a passion in the arms of Lyon beyond anything she ever imagined.

    Story

    I love shifter books and the stories. This series is very good and the history behind all the shifters are interesting. I love romance and the sex usually doesn't bother me, but by the 5th book in the series my only issue with these books are that as the series progresses there is more and more sex is in the stories then the actual story itself. I'm afraid of what book 6 is going to be like. So far sex is what keeps them alive, the only thing they can so without sex is breath. I feel the next book they won't even be able to breath without having sex. This is the first time I read any of Pamela Palmer books. I enjoyed them, but please add more content to the story and then you if have that much sex in the book it might at least be 50/50.
    As for Rob Shapiro, I have enjoyed his voice, its perfect for the shifters, however when he speaks as a women, he lowers his voice so low that I had to keep rewinding or raise the volume when the females were talking. The Director should have picked up that issue and corrected it. But Rob's voice is awesome.
    Worth a credit? Yes... Enjoy

    Weddings have the strangest effect on people. How else to explain the fact that Sissy woke up in Mitch's bed the morning after her brother Bobby Ray tied the knot? Or that gunmen are trying to kill Mitch. Sissy Mae now has to escort a bleeding, stubborn, yet still incredibly sexy lion shifter to her Tennessee Pack's turf to keep him safe? It doesn't help that Mitch's appraising gaze makes her feel like the most desirable creature on earth, or that the ultimate stray cat is suddenly acting all kinds of possessive.

    I have to say, I truly enjoyed this book. I laughed through the whole book. My husband kept asking me what I was laughing about. I enjoyed this book a lot more then the second one. The story was interesting also, of course I new the ending already, but just listening to then joke around was worth the book. I hope the rest of the books are as good, because I just downloaded the rest of the series. Worth a credit: "definitely"

    A telepathic hunter of serial killers, Raven Whitney helps to catch some of the most depraved criminals. But her work keeps her from getting close to others, and has drained her body and spirit. In need of rest and rejuvenation, she embarks for a vacation far from home. Mikhail Dubrinsky is the prince of the Carpathians, the powerful leader of a wise and secret ancient race that thrives in the night. From the moment they meet, Raven and Mikhail are helpless to resist the desire that sparks between them.

    Story

    I couldn't recommend this to anyone. It was honestly difficult to finish. I think the storyline had great potential, but unfortunately, the main characters never gained appeal to me. At first I thought it was just the narrator's voice for Raven that was grating on my nerves, but after a while, I realized it was just the character herself. If there was a stupid choice to be made, Raven predictably made it every time. Trying to understand her reasoning (her compassion for others, her belief in free will, etc.) didn't help at all. She came across as ridiculous damsel, who was always in distress. And the male lead, as attractive as he was written, lost some of his appeal to me, because of his willingness to cater to and coddle such a idiot! So disappointed. Don't waste your credit here.

    Nothing incites Marcus more than the primal hunger roused by his former fiancée, Elizabeth. It’s been years since she jilted him for another man, but that only means there’s a lot to catch up on, a lot to make up for, and that he’s going to enjoy every sweet moment.… The same drive and passion that sent her into another man’s arms is what brings Elizabeth back to Marcus. Her attraction to him is the one thing she fears, but she’s run out of options. Resisting is impossible. But does she have the courage to surrender everything?

    The book would have been better with a different narrator, such a pity she was selected to do the entire series. Had I realized that I would never have purchased the entire series but I did and I am compelled to stick it out and get through it! Mostly I like the stories but dread listening to it. Also I was not expecting it to be a series of the late 18 hundreds, Sad that the series was ruined by a bad narrator. Normally I enjoy Sylvia Day books. I just wished I have not purchased the whole series at one time.

    The unexpected happens in an instant. On her way to work, secretary Docia Waverley hurtles into a crashing crossroads, and she quickly begins to suspect that things will never be the same. Then, when a tall, blond, muscular stranger intervenes on her behalf, telling her it is his duty to protect her at all cost, what is just a feeling turns to proof positive. That is, as long as Docia's savior doesn't turn out to be a crazed kidnapper.... When Ram finds Docia, he has no doubt that she is his queen.

    Story

    This is the first time I listened/read a Jacquelyn Frank book. For anyone that has not read Jacquelyn Frank,I would like to suggest that prior to reading this series World of Nightwalkers to first read "Nightwalkers". The first series Jacquelyn Frank wrote, that way you get to know and understand some history about the different types of characters.

    For the first 10 chapters I was so confused I almost gave up. But since I read a lot of the reviews and most were very good, I continued with the book, I also had purchased all three at one time. I have over 300 books from audible and enjoy multiple series, so I usually purchase all the books in the series.

    I gave this book a 4 star because finally by the end of the book I understood the story and enjoyed it. Xe Sands is a very good narrator with her different voices. Thank goodness for the different voices! if not I would have been completely lost. There are so many characters in this book and most of them have multiple names that my head was spinning. On top of the fact that they have multiple names most of the Egyptian names are very similar, or a least in my confusion it sounds that way.

    As I previously said I have not yet read Nightwalkers, I wish I would have known to first read that series I would have been ready and probably understood more about the World of Nightwalker. On my way to book 2, I look forward to it since its about her brother, and I really like his personality.

    The follow-up to the runaway bestsellers On Dublin Street and Down London Road. Despite her outgoing demeanor, Olivia is painfully insecure around the opposite sex - usually, she can't get up the nerve to approach guys she's interested in. But moving to Edinburgh has given her a new start, and, after she develops a crush on a sexy postgrad, she decides it's time to push past her fears and go after what she wants. Nate Sawyer is a gorgeous player who never commits, but to his close friends, he's as loyal as they come.

    Story

    This is the first time I read/Listened to any Samantha Young books. I listened to the first one in the series On Dublin Street and enjoyed it very much, even the Narrator was ok with the accents. However, the accents and the different voices for this narrator was not great. It's a shame that this author does not keep the same narrator for all her books. I truly enjoyed the story, very well written and in some cases heartbreaking. As I was listening to this second book in the series I noticed I had missed a lot of other relationship discussions. I felt like I had skipped several books.
    That's when I logged into the actual web site of Samantha Young and found out that there are 2 previous books prior to Before Jamaica Lane. the 2nd book in the series is Down London Road and the 3rd is Until Fountain Bridge. The 4th book is Before Jamaica Lane.
    I'm not sure if this is an Audible.com Issue or Samantha Lane wanted them added in the system this way. I am one of those Audible listeners that when I listen to the first book and enjoy it I log into the the Series, click on the word series and down load all the books from the series. I have listened to over 300 books. But the two books mentioned above are not added in the list of the series so I did not purchase them. Nor will I purchase them now.
    I gave this book a 4 star overall because I was not impressed with the narrator. But this is a great book and worth the credit.

    Over the years, Donovan Kelly has fought relentlessly for justice, women and children always holding a special place in his heart. Working side by side with his brothers, Donovan has witnessed firsthand the toll it’s taken - physically, mentally, and emotionally - on his loved ones, and the innocent lives caught in the crossfire. What he never expects is for his next mission to happen right on his home turf - or for it to take a very personal turn.

    Have been waiting for Donovan's story. I have always admired his strength and his personality. This is a great story as all the KGI books are. I did feel Maya Banks added a little too much in the Family and Love, it just felt like it was a bit overwhelming in every chapter of the book. But as always this is a great series!!

    I wish they have stayed with the same narrator (Harry Berkeley). He had all the characters dead on in the first 5 books of the series. Love this series so I made the mistake of listening to all the books again prior to this release and it reminded me of how great the narrator Harry Berkeley was in the previous books. Adam Paul is also a very good Narrator I have listened to him in many other books, however his multiple voices are just not a good match for this series. He has a young mans voice and is not as tuff. Also his female voices just didn't sound good.

    All in all this is one of my favorite series, I'm looking forward to the next book., I had pre-ordered this book, this is a must have in the series. Please try to get the next book out in the series soon. One year is just too long to wait.

    I'm not sure if it was the narrator or the story, maybe both. I was bored from the very beginning to the last chapter. I was hoping the story would pick up, but it just keep lingering on. The narrators had no spunk in this story. It's sad because I really enjoyed the series. I have been looking forward to Williams story. But right now I don't think I even want to torture myself with listening to the voice of Max Bellmore. I have listened to hundreds of books some good and some not so good But I could not wait for this story to be over. I've always like Kane Lord of Disaster but I just could not get into this book. I had pre-ordered this book. Next time, I will wait for the reviews.

    I listened to Book one and really enjoyed it. The reading is a bit slow, but the voice is great. So I purchased the next 3 books. This is book 2 and from the beginning I have been so bored, that I listen to a couple of chapters and skip a couple of chapters. I have even fallen asleep, woke up and I could still follow the story. I hope the next 2 books are not like this. I have 5 chapters left and can’t wait to finish this book. I have listened to hundreds of Audio books, but I honestly have to say this has been the most boring book I have listened to.
