    Listeners looking for a fresh twist on vampire tales need look no further than the erotically charged Black Dagger Brotherhood series. Mary Luce is dissatisfied with her life and her job. But when she is unwittingly thrust into the vampire dominion, everything changes. Falling under the protection of the Brotherhood's strongest member, Rhage, she soon finds herself drawn to his animalistic urges.

    "Start with Book 2 and skip Book 1"
    Overall

    My advice is to skip Book 1 in this series and start with Book 2 instead. You really won't miss that much and Book 1 is a bit weak and juvenile. But Book 2 will get you hooked and then you'll love the entire series. Great narrator too.

    Bewitching rock superstar Joley Drake can have any lover she wants. But when her life is threatened, her dangerously sexy bodyguard is the only man she needs. There's just one problem: his shadowy reputation as a secret Russian hit man may put Joley in even greater peril.

    Rebecca says: "This is Book 5 of the Drake Sisters Series"
    "This is Book 5 of the Drake Sisters Series"
    Overall

    The Drake Sisters series is most enjoyable if you can listen to the books in the order they were written.
    Book #1 = Magic in the Wind;
    Book #2 = Twilight Before Christmas;
    Book #3 = Oceans of Fire;
    Book #4 = Dangerous Tides;
    Book #5 = Safe Harbor;
    Book #6 = Turbulent Sea;
    Book #7 = Hidden Currents.

    St. Vladimir's Academy isn't just any boarding school - it's a hidden place where vampires are educated in the ways of magic and half-human teens train to protect them. Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, a bodyguard for her best friend Lissa, a Moroi Vampire Princess. They've been on the run, but now they're being dragged back to St. Vladimir's - the very place where they're most in danger.

    Mitch says: "The Weakest Installment in a Fantastic Series"
    "Fantastic!"
    Overall

    I'm an adult and I loved this book. Can't wait to listen to the rest of the series. If you like the Twilight books, you'll like these too.

    What do women want? Newspaperman Colin Lyons needs to figure it out, fast! Because advice columnist Rina Lowell is waging a sexual campaign against him that he can't withstand for long. Not that he wants to. Rina is as irresistible to him as her column is to her readers. The problem? The newspaper's in the red, and all fluff pieces have to be cut. Still, faced with Rina's seductive powers of persuasion, Colin can't resist taking her to bed.

    Not one of Carly Phillips best. The dialog was pretty embarrassing.

    Lady Emma Wells-Finch comes to Texas on a mission: she has two weeks to ruin her reputation. The only thing that will save her from losing everything is complete and utter disgrace. World famous playboy-athlete Kenny Traveler has been blackmailed into chauffeuring Lady Emma around. He needs to prove himself completely respectable to get back into his game. And when a gorgeous man who can't afford another scandal meets a hardheaded woman who's determined to cause one, anything can happen...even love.

    mia says: "Another great book by SEP"
    "Wonderful!"
    Overall

    This is one of my favorite SEP books. It is witty and charming and great fun to listen to. The prequel to "Lady Be Good" is "Fancy Pants," which is not as good, but I think you'll enjoy reading them in order.

    Baseball hopeful Bo Crutcher is about to get his shot at the majors. That is, until life throws him a curveball. When AJ, the son he's never met, lands on his doorstep, Bo's life becomes a whole new ball game. He needs help - fast. Enter Kimberly van Dorn. Hired to smooth Bo's rough exterior for the media, she expects the kind of shallow pro athlete she's used to handling. But Bo is willing to sacrifice everything for his vulnerable son.

    I enjoy Susan Wiggs' books, but I found this book to be a little slow. Great characters, but not much plot. It just sort of ambled along.

    Lexi Titan can just see the headlines. All of Titanville will be buzzing. Not that she has any other choice. Faced with exactly thirty days to come up with two million dollars, she is out of options. Marry Cruz Rodriguez or lose everything--the successful day spa she built herself, her tyrant of a father's respect.

    mia says: "Great start for the Lone Star Sisters series!"
    "Light and Easy"
    Overall

    This was my first book by the author and I will definitely listen to more. The book went by quickly and I enjoyed it very much.

    One week of mind-blowing sex on a beautiful Caribbean island. Of all the business proposals financial tycoon Dominic Saxon has heard, Taylor Steele's is definitely the most tempting. All Taylor wants in return is for Dominic to father her baby. No strings, no commitments...just a mutually satisfying arrangement. Make that very satisfying. For a man with no intention of marrying again, it sounds ideal.

    CAROLYN says: "IT WAS MORE MEDIOCRE THAN MAGICAL"
    "Closer to erotica than romance"
    Overall

    This book is closer to erotica than romance, but if you are okay with that, then you'll love this book. It is well-written and well-narrated, with likable characters and a fast moving plot -- the plot being, of course, sex sex sex.

    Susan Wiggs is a New York Times best-selling author who "paints the details of human relationships with the finesse of a master" (Jodi Picoult). When Olivia Bellamy leaves Manhattan for a summer in the Catskills, an old flame awaits.

    "A nice, easy-to-listen-to romance book"
    Overall

    If you like romance books, you'll probably like this well-written and well-narrated series. The plot doesn't move along that quickly, but the characters are well developed and likable. I've never read a Susan Wiggs book that I didn't like. This is the first book in the Willow Lake series so start here.

    His name is Hardy Cates. He's a self-made millionaire who comes from the wrong side of the tracks. He's made enemies in the rough-and-tumble ride to the top of Houston's oil industry. He's got hot blood in his veins - and vengeance on his mind.

    sue says: "A READ ONLY BOOK."
    "Great romance series"
    Overall

    If you like light and easy romance, then I think you'll like this series. Although each book is complete and not dependent on each other, I would suggest reading them in the order they were written. Start with "Sugar Daddy," then "Blue-Eyed Devil," then "Smooth Taking Stranger." I would have given this book 5 stars, but the narrator just wasn't as good as the first book. But after a few minutes I adjusted to her 5-pack-a-day smoker's voice and it didn't bother me so much and I was able to enjoy the book.
